Matt 18:3 and said (Yahshua), “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become as little children, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.
Matt 22:37 And Yahshua said to him, “ ‘You shall love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your mind.’
You do that by obeying HIS Commands! No words can explain the joy I feel from receiving a love for YAH’s Words.
If you love Him, you will keep His Commands. If you want peace that surpasses all understanding, you need look no further than gaining wisdom and knowledge in Yahshua.
Deu 30:19 “I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed.
Isa 26:4 “Trust in Yahweh forever, for in Yah, Yahweh, is a rock of ages.
Pro 3:1-2 My son, do not forget my Torah, And let your heart watch over my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they add to you.
Acts 2:37-38 And having heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Kepha and the rest of the emissaries, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?” And Kepha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of Yahshua Messiah for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit.
How does a baby do this? Yahushua wasn‘t immersed until he was about 30 years old - see Luke 3:23, Matt. 3:13. The children are saved thru the believing parent(s) 1Cor 7:14. Yahshua went under the water to do this. John didn’t sprinkle water (another tradition of men) on HIS head.
Acts 2:41 Then those, indeed, who gladly received his word, were immersed. And on that day about three thousand beings were added to them.
What Word was he teaching that they gladly received? The Torah and the Prophets (that's all they had!), Salvation of Yahushua, Feast Days and Immersion.
Acts 2:39 “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are far off, as many as Yahweh our Elohim shall call.”
2Tim 2:15-16 Do your utmost to present yourself approved to Elohim, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly handling the Word of Truth. But keep away from profane, empty babblings, for they go on to more wickedness.
Jer 6:16-19 Thus said Yahweh, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’ And I raised up watchmen over you, and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the ram’s horn!’ But they said, ‘We do not listen.’ “Therefore hear, you nations, and know, O congregation, what is upon them! “Hear, O earth! See, I am bringing evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not listened to My words, nor My Torah – and they rejected it.
Take a good look at our world today! It seems to me the evil is here and only getting worse!
Col 2:16 Let no one therefore judge you in eating or in drinking, or in respect of a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths
The Yahudim were judging the gentile converts according to the Talmud and the non-converted gentiles were judging them for keeping YAH’s festivals, clean foods & Sabbaths. We‘ve been on the receiving end of these judgments.
Heb 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Set-apart Spirit, and have tasted the good Word of Elohim and the powers of the age to come, (oh, what an awesome taste it is!) and fall away, to renew them again to repentance – having impaled for themselves the Son of Elohim again, and put Him to open shame.
Heb 10:26 For if we sin purposely after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a slaughter offering for sins.
Matt 7:14-15 “Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed which leads to life, and there are few who find it. “But beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves.
Organizations selling the Holy Spirit for a profit. The Holy Spirit is FREE of charge. All it takes is repentance, being immersed, starting a new life in Yahushua and obedience to YAH‘s commands. It is very simple if you have a Love for the Truth.
Luke 11:9 “And I say to you: ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you.
Luke 11:10 “For everyone asking receives, and he who is seeking finds, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.
I can attest to that first hand!
Rom 2:13 For not the hearers of the Torah are righteous in the sight of Elohim, but the doers of the law shall be declared right.
By now I'm sure you understand that Law is the The Law of Yah.
Acts 17:29-30 “Now then, since we are the offspring of Elohim, we should not think that the Elohim is like gold or silver or stone, an image made by the skill and thought of man. “Truly, then, having overlooked these times of ignorance, Elohim now commands all men everywhere to repent.
1Cor 2:14-16 But the natural man does not receive the matters of the Spirit of Elohim, for they are foolishness to him, and he is unable to know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual discerns indeed all matters, but he himself is discerned by no one. For “Who has known the mind of Yahweh? Who shall instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Messiah.
Pro 28:9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, Even his prayer is an abomination.
Ecc 1:18 For in much wisdom is much grief, and he who increases knowledge increases suffering.
Like our own family telling lies about us. BUT, the blessings far outweigh the grief & suffering!
Jam 1:26-27 If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is worthless. Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
Eph 6:12-15 Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up the complete armour of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand. Stand, then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace.
Act 3:19 “Repent therefore and turn back, for the blotting out of your sins, in order that times of refreshing might come from the presence of the Master.
The ‘teachers’ would have you believe that Yahshua blotted out the law, nailing it to the stake. But clearly, it was our sins that HE blotted out and nailed to the stake.
Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Rom 8:7 Because the mind of the flesh is hostility towards Elohim, for it does not subject itself to the Torah of Elohim, neither indeed is it able.
A little hard to get around that scripture. The mind of the flesh is why so many have forsaken the laws that our Heavenly Father has given us - for our own good.
Isa 24:5 For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Teaching, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant.
Yahushua came as the Living Word of Yahueh and renewed the everlasting covenant. NOT cancel it! YAH is an Elohim of Covenants, NOT religion! If you really want more information on what the renewed covenant is about, check out: www.yahushua.net
Matt 26:11-13 “For you always have the poor with you, but Me you do not have always. “For in pouring this perfume on My body, she did it for My burial. “Truly, I say to you, wherever this Good News is proclaimed in all the world, what this woman has done shall be spoken of also, to her remembrance.”
2Pet 3:8-10 But, beloved ones, let not this one matter be hidden from you: that with Yahweh one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Yahweh is not slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward us, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of Yahweh shall come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with intense heat, and the earth and the works that are in it shall be burned up.
YAH desires for all to repent and serve HIM, but HE is only going to wait so long.
Rom 11:25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in your own conceit, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’el, until the completeness of the gentiles has come in.
If you will, turn to Gen. 48:17-19: the word ‘nation’, in v.19, (Strong’s H1471) and the word ‘gentiles’ (G1484) from the scripture quoted above, mean the same thing. Ephrayim (adopted by Israel) was part Egyptian and he received the blessing of the First Born. Ephrayim will be the ‘fullness of the Nations‘. Many gentiles are waking up to who they really are. The commonwealth of Israel! Keep in mind: There are 12 Tribes of Israel, not just Judah. There are many secrets in the scriptures, but they are only opened up to those who diligently search things out.
Psa 139:14 I give thanks to You (YAH), For I am awesomely and wondrously made! Wondrous are Your works, And my being knows it well.
2Pet 3:11-14 Seeing all these are to be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart behaviour and reverence, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of Elohim, through which the heavens shall be destroyed, being set on fire, and the elements melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we wait for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells. So then, beloved ones, looking forward to this, do your utmost to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless.
This does not sound like any kind of rapture to me. The righteous inherit the earth.
2Pet 3:15-16 and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also our beloved brother Sha’ul (Paul) wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him, as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand, which those who are untaught and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures.
Exactly what the ‘teachers’ have been and continue to do. They have to keep the money train going and keep the sheep asleep! They have rewritten the Word of YAH!
Zec 11:17 “Woe to the worthless shepherd forsaking the flock! Let a sword be upon his arm and upon his right eye! His arm shall wither and his right eye shall be dimmed.”
1Pe 5:1-3 Therefore, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a sharer of the esteem that is to be revealed, I appeal to the elders among you: Shepherd the flock of Elohim which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but voluntarily, not out of greed for filthy gain, but eagerly, neither as being masters over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
How many times do they pass the basket in your church? How many ‘teachers’ give their wares away for free? At the end of this booklet, is a list of True Believers that give their study guides & books away for FREE. We are NOT supposed to sell the Word of YAH!
Mark 1:15 and saying, “The time has been filled, and the reign of Elohim has come near. Repent, and believe in the Good News.”
Mal 3:6 “For I am Yahweh, I shall not change.
Jam 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of turning.
Heb 13:8 Yahshua Messiah is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
1John 3:4 Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
What law is John referring to? The Torah.
Pro 24:12 If you say, “See, we did not know this,” Would not He who weighs the hearts discern it? He who watches over your life, Would He not know it? And shall He not repay man according to his work?
2Ti 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days hard times shall come. For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, wrong-doers, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good, betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim, having a form of reverence but denying its power. And turn away from these!
I have to say, We’re there!
2Pet 3:17-18 You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch, lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless, but grow in the favour and knowledge of our Master and Saviour Yahshua Messiah. To Him be the esteem both now and to a day that abides.
In closing, all one has to do is study the history of Israel (Judah is only one of the tribes, there‘s 11 other tribes) with scripture and other books like Josephus (Jewish historian). There is no way a functional thinking person can deny the Power of YAH and His Son, Yahushua, over Yisrael. Prophecy upon prophecy has and continues to be fulfilled. When Israel was obedient to YAH’s commands, they were immensely blessed. When they were rebellious to YAH’s laws, they were disciplined and sent into captivity. Just like a father disciplining his child. Yahueh’s laws are for ALL the nations (remember Ecc. 12:13). YAH never disciplined anyone for keeping HIS laws.
Be honest with yourself and take a good look at the world today. We are in great distress! It’s because Yahueh has been forsaken. If the nations turn back to HIM, YAH will bless them.
Yahusha means ‘Salvation of YAH’. Yahusha’s Name includes YAH’s Name (Exo. 23:21). Engraft into Yisrael with the Messiah, then you become part of the Commonwealth of Yisrael. AND, you get the blessings and Power of Yahshua’s Spirit. I did and daily I seek Him!
Psa 91:4 He covers you with His feathers, And under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour.
The best advice I can give to anyone who cares to study scripture - don’t take any translation as inspired. Go back to the original writings (they’re inspired) with Lexicons, Concordances, Interlinear’s and even a good dictionary will help. Above all, stop listening to those whom set themselves above you - they only want your money! Study it out for yourself! Then give to the true servants of the Most High.
Mat 23:11 “But the greatest among you shall be your servant.
Show me a preacher, teacher or priest doing that!
Col 2:8 See to it that no one makes a prey of you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary matters of the world, and not according to Messiah.
If you believe translations are inspired, then why was The Almighty’s Name changed to pagan/general titles?
The Ram’s Horn has blown. It is now up to you to decide who you will serve. Do you want the blessings? I have them and I LOVE them!
Rev 2:5 “So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.
