Alright, please take a deep breath, because no doubt, some will be offended by what I present to you as Biblical, Holy, Inspired “Truth”. You must relax, trust me a little bit and understand that I approach you from a position of love. Love first for the Truth, and then love as I am commanded to love YOU just as much as I love myself. Everything here is scriptural, and most is from the mouth of Yahuah Himself.
That is a requirement by “Jesus”, who most likely was named ‘Yahusha’.
YAHUSHA has a wonderful meaning. Strong’s H3467 declares that ישׁע (yâsha’) is used as a primitive root, meaning properly: to be open, wide or free, that is, (by implication) to be safe; causatively to free or succor: to avenge, defend, deliver, help, preserve, rescue, to be safe, to bring or to have salvation, to save, or to be a Savior, or to get victory. We have elected to publish the name YAHUSHA, in the first instance because it is the most accurate transliteration of the name given to the Messiah, as he was given the same name as Husha / Yahusha son of Nun, whom the English world has always called Joshua. However, the name YAHUSHA means I AM HE who avenges, defends, delivers, helps, preserves, rescues, saves, brings salvation, your Savior, who brings you to victory. https://www.cepher.net/how-is-the-name-of-the-savior-transliterated.aspx
You can call Him Jesus without feeling bad about it. No one knows with certainty that Yahusha is correct, but we base our firm belief on evidence explained on the linked page in the quoted paragraph.
He loves His people, and He wants everyone to come to Him. There is no “waiting to become good enough”, as no one can be good enough. Its just a letting go of self and turning to Him for the gift of life that He offers, and the subsequent change we experience in our time as humans.
What IS The “Truth”?
I believe that Yahuah (“God”) expects us to obey His commands given in the “Torah”, which is the first five books of the Holy Bible AND the books of the various Prophets. I believe this because the Word teaches it, in spite of most so-called “Christian” teachers sinfully teaching you that those pesky expectations of “God” were “for the Jews”. I mean, teaching that it is OK to sin fills church seats and influences big church donors. People want an “authority” in the church to tell them that it is just fine to have sex with your lover if you are in a “committed relationship”.
See? You wish it were true, don’t you?
OK, let’s get school started, shall we?
What are the commands that Jesus (Yeshua or Yahusha) refers to?
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled (“all”, not the “law”. “All” refers to everything prophetic right up to His physical return to rule on earth – jd).
Jesus DID fulfill the law. All was fulfilled through Him, not to abolish the Law, but to be the perfect sacrificial lamb. He obeyed all of God’s Law to perfection, but disregarded the Rabbinical oral and written “laws”, calling the religious leaders “white-washed tombs, filled with dead mens’ bones.
Jesus Destroyed The Claims Of the “Godly” Pharisees and Sadducees
John 8: 39-45
“39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
The Children of the Devil
42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Matthew 23:27 – “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Proof that Judiac/Rabbinical “laws” were lies from hell used to imprison the Hebrews in false “sins”, purely for control purposes, and to make money off religion.
True sin is simply transgressing the Law, God’s commands. In the KJV, 1 John 3:4 – “Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” Sin is simply violation of the commands of Yahuah, the Lord God Almighty.
Jesus commands us to obey ALL of the commands, and to teach others, our families first (less we be worse than infidels).
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (These are all future-tense, not past-tense. He speaks forward, not as to the past. This applies to the saved. -jd)
Mat 5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness (“righteousness” is adherence to the instructions of Yahuah) shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees (by following Torah-jd), ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Q: What makes one “righteous”?-jd)
OK, so do you understand? We are commanded to obey the Torah, which is the first five books of the Holy Bible and which contains what is loosely called “the Law”. The word “Torah” actually means “Instructions”. The commands in Torah are our rules for living, and they come from the mouth of Yahuah directly.
“The Hebrew word, torah (תורה), is derived from a root that was used in the realm of archery, yareh (ירה). Yareh means to shoot an arrow in order to hit a mark. The mark or target, of course, was the object at which the archer was aiming. Consequently, torah, one of the nouns derived from this root, is, therefore, the arrow aimed at the mark, The target is the truth about God and how one relates to Him. The torah is, therefore, in the strict sense instruction designed to teach us the truth about God. Torah means direction,teaching, instruction,or doctrine. https://www.torahresourcesinternational.info/definition.php
Much, perhaps half, of Torah Law will not apply to our lives because we have no priests nor temple for sacrifice of animals. And sacrifice of animals is no longer needed, because Yahusha was the perfect sacrifice and died for our sins.
So all we need to concentrate on are the non-priestly commands. The non-priestly commands are easy to do and remember.
If you read all of the above, you are called of Yahuah to follow in The Way. If so, praise Yahuah for your life is surely saved, and you walk in the Way of Righteousness. This is a high calling. Strait (“strait” = narrow or tight) is the way and narrow is the path, and few people find it.
Matthew 7:14 – Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Note that “the way” is narrow. It is narrow because it is well-defined. The well-defined Way is this: Salvation through confession of Yahusha as Messiah, and subsequent worship exemplified through obedience to His commands, The Law.
Acts 24:14 (NKJV) – “But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. (Paul, who was arrested for being a follower of The Way, which the rabbis called a “sect”, like a cult).
“The Way” is a term applied to those saved by grace and faith in Yahusha (aka Jesus) who research and practice Torah. The Law cannot save a man; Rather, it condemns all men. Yahusha saves man, and the Torah leads unto or establishes Righteousness. The two combined, Salvation through faith in Yahusha and Righteousness through adherence to Torah combine into The Way, the path taught by Yahusha and followed by every one of His hand-picked disciples, even after Yahusha was crucified and gone many years. – JD)
This is that path. It is so powerful that in The Revelation, Satan himself comes specifically to hunt us down. He comes soon, which is why I have such urgency to get this online and available.
Rev 12:17 And the dragon was enraged over the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, those keeping the commandments of God, and having the testimony of Jesus Christ. (The Way)
Yahuah Loves Those Who Obey The Commands of Yahusha
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Yahusha plainly states that our obedience to His commands proves our love for Yahusha, and that Yahuah loves US because we love Yahusha . He finishes by declaring that He will manifest himself to us/me/you.
MAN’IFEST, a. [L. manifestus.]
1. Plain, open, clearly visible to the eye or obvious to the understanding; apparent; not obscure or difficult to be seen or understood. From the testimony, the truth we conceive to be manifest.
You Do Not Know Him If You Do Not Keep Yahusha’s Commandments
1John 2:4 He that saith, “I know him”, but keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Welcome to The Way, friend. Welcome.
