Hebrews 5: 7 -10 " During the days of Yahuwshua's life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high Priest in the order of Melchizedek."
The importance of obedience of the son of God is providential as this fulfilled the heavenly order of all submission to the Almighty God. who does not want to do so? we all know it is Satan and his rebellious angels and evil spirits.
As the Son of the Almighty God, Yahuwshua could choose to stand on his own feet or refuse to die, then he should have lived his own life without death. Yet, such an action would not accomplish what his Father purposed from the beginning to reunite everything in Him in harmony and in peace and in Love. Yahuwshua knew the pain of suffering and death, but he saw the outcome of his Father's plan and submitted himself to his Father as he knows that His plan is better than his own needs, his Father's will is superior than anything and anyone to bring in a true harmony, peaceful, and loving world. His obedience fulfilled the will of God in Him. Therefore, the God exalted him above every created beings, even gave His throne to Him to seat on. What a wonderful Father and the glorious Son.
Now, through the sacrifice of Yahuwshua, he has brought in the promised eternal salvation to all mankind. He has become the source of eternal Salvation for all who obey him. Such a heavenly decree gives everyone a fair chance to gain a precious eternal life through a faith in Christ Yahuwshua, the Son of God who seats on the Throne of God. Such a heavenly decree made by the blood of the Son of God also restricts any other way to enter the new kingdom of Heaven. Such a heavenly decree also will outcast all those who will not obey Him and accept Him as their Savior and God. Such a heavenly decree will be referenced for the righteous Judgement on That Day. Praise the Lord for what he did for all of humanity and for the coming new heaven and new earth.
In addition to what you achieved for the eternal salvation, he also obtained a unique position in the coming kingdom of Heaven: the High Priest in the Kingdom. It was given by his Father the Almighty God. There is only One High Priest position and He will forever be the High Priest in the new Kingdom. "The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: 'You are a Priest forever."
What does Yahuwshua minister regularly? The power of indestructible life. what an exalted work that he performs forever. Praise the Lord.
Let us who fear the Lord follow him, obey Him, and love Him. May this eternal life befall on all of the Christians who truly are saved and purified by the Blood of Christ Yahuwshua. Amen forever.
is truth One? Yes.
Is Truth only? Yes.
who is this One and Only Truth? The Son of Almighty G-d Yahushua Christ, our Savior.
How can Christ Yahushua set us free? and why do we need Him to set us free? Free from what?
let me try to answer all these vital questions backwards.
1. Free from what?
A simple answer is to be free from death. why do we die then? we have a biological death, and spiritual death after. when we die physically, our spiritual death is awaiting. if our souls are forever waiting in a desolated space, it equals to an eternal death of our souls. however, only when our departed souls regain a new body, then we will live once again.
a simple analogy like this, when we die, just like unload an operation system from a computer hardware system and is stored in a media. if this OS is there forever, then it will never run again. essentially, the OS on a media is dead. however, when you install into a hardware, it will run the hardware.
therefore, since every human being dies, death is certain. Free from death is a hope to live forever.
2. why do we need Christ to set us free?
first ,let us explore what cause us to die. Physically, our biological bodies are born to die as we learned from the modern science. Spiritually, our souls after death went to the other world that no one came back. One key question we must want to know is why we must die?
The Bible says it clearly, that the wage of sin is death. It speaks plainly that due to the sin inside of our body, we cannot stop sinning and the consequence of the sins is death. it can be understood as the sin corrupts the biological system to cause it to decay and deteriorate and die at one day. The sins also go with our soul as they co-exist in our spiritual body. as it defiles and darkens and corrupts our souls, if our Creator does not want our souls to live once again, we will never get a new earthly or heavenly body to live once again. figuratively, our souls will die after the judgement. Spiritually, it can be understood that our souls will be destroyed in the lake of fire. The exact ending is unknown.
can we defeat the death by our modern science and medicine? it would be a dream to keep chasing it. and it has been the dream of many generations. in reality, if we look at the centenarians who were or have been so aged and deteriorated in various ways of health and strength, the prolonged life is very limited. If such life is extended to another 100 years, what he or she will look like? No. unless aging of our biological body can be stopped, then our soul can live in this flesh for a long and happy life. but an eternity of life will never be reached by any human effort. otherwise, the death of the Son of G-d would be not necessary.
What Christ promised was to give our saved souls a new body to live forever with him. As he is eternal, and the Giver of the Life, only He can save us and set us free from the death truly. who else in the history promised to give such a life that defiles death? all created beings must die. But now, there is a hope for the created humans to live forever, not in this life, but in the coming life. What a beautiful and awesome hope.
3. How can Christ Yahushua set us free from the sin?
Sin entered the world like a drop of ink entered a cup of water. without any external means, the polluted water will always be polluted. However an ink is ink, water is water. G-d can separate the sins from the human souls by shining His Light into them. as the sin is darkness and corruption, it fears the True light. When the true Light lives in a human's heart, it drives out all sins gradually. at the same time, this Light heals the corrupted soul and heart and clean them to be like G-d's. By this Way, a sinner can be truly saved as he or she will bear the true identity of child of G-d.
Praise be to the Lord forever and ever.
"you are from below, I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be (ESV) | I am He (NIV, KJV), you will indeed die in your sins. " Jesus said in John 8: 23 - 24. (ESV)
Here, Yehoshua spoke clearly that he is G-d the Father himself. As he referred himself to He, there is no one beside his Father. He and His Father are one from the beginning.
when Jehovah Witnesses denied that Yehoshua is G-d himself, they will die in their sins according to what the Lord says. which death does Yehoshua speak of? As the Son of G-d is of the True Spirit, he would not speak of the physical death, but the spiritual death, the second death of human souls. To strength this point, the Bible also says that every one dies, and there is a Judgement after death. Yehoshua could not speak of the physical death as every single human dies save only two men in the entire history die not. They are Enoch and Elijah.
Therefore, it is the second death that the Lord comes to save us because without his salvation, all souls will die after the judgement. For none of these unsaved souls will live the second life. Who will have this second life? All those who believe in Jesus Christ and have and obey his commandments and teachings.
Regarding all Muslims, they deny G-d the Father can have a son. It is funny as they all proclaim that the Almighty G-d can do whatever he wants while, they deny that he can have a son. It is a ridiculous statement from many Muslims. Further more, they deny that Yehoshua can save human beings as only G-d can do so. By their belief, they have denied that Yehoshua is G-d himself. Because from the Beginning, G-d is one and only. Yehoshua was with G-d and was his Word and his Voice, his Power. It is a mystery that how part of G-d became a flesh. but yet, it is truly recorded in the Bible that everything created in heaven and on this earth and within the earth were by Yehoshua, through Yehoshua. Nothing was created without Him. Praise from all the earth and the heavens be to Him and His awesome Name. Amen.
Therefore, by trusting the words of our Lord and Savior Yehoshua, we firmly believe that He is G-d himself. He and the Father are one. Amen.
"Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise you voice like a trumpet.
Declare to my people their rebellion and to the house of Jacob their sins.
For day after day, they seek me out, they seem eager to know my ways,
as if they were a nation that does what is right, and has not forsaken the commands of its G-d." (Isaiah 58: 1-2)
Here, G-d's chosen prophet Isiah recorded what he heard from the Almighty G-d who has angered with all hypocrite people among His people. He called Isaiah to speak aloud to their rebellion and sins without considering their feeling as they might not be able to hear or know His message.
Today, when G-d sent his messenger to his church, they tended to refuse his messenger and his messages. They tended to defend their position and even thought and planed to persecute His messenger in order to suppress what are against them from the Almighty G-d. Their denial and self-seeking speak their rebellion. Their plot of persecution and wicked ganging speak their iniquity. Therefore, Father knew their hypocrisy and their untruthful minds and knowledge. He further pierced into their core by pointing out their pretended godliness and their unfruitful self-learning practices abandoning the Truth and His commandments that can guide every one into righteousness and justice.
Today, most Christians do not keep His commandments as well. For example, they forsake Keeping Sabbath that is the only visible weekly practice for men to show they obey Him and Honor His commandments. Yet, all the worldly preachers or pastors declare to the blinded and poisoned sheep and/or black sheep among them, keeping your Sabbath on any day as you like. They backed it up by that G-d lives in their hearts. Hypocrisy has been used by them in a same manner like the old. They abused all Truth by falsely using G-d's name. May G-d forgive them so that they may have a chance to repent.
Matthew 28: 18 - 20: " Then Yahuwshua came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. " The churches do not teach the believers to obey everything that Jesus had commanded us. What they taught is to compromise what Jesus commanded and to seduce the sheep to choose what they like to keep and how to keep. Such evil teachers must be judged and punished severely on that Day if they repent not in this life. the Lord taught keeping the Law clearly:
Matthew 5:7 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets, I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. " Without keeping the commandments, how could any one to allow the Lord to fulfill the Law within him or her? Therefore, this evil world is filled with unrestricted freedom also polluted all the men-taught preachers and pastors, and further blinded them by the clergy system to anchor them in the money luring ministry. They are serving the Devil instead of the True G-d. Yet, they believe that they were, are offering a service to Him. G-d will not be pleased as they are not His true priests. He allowed them as many of them were, and are, will be working for Him, even they might not be saved. but his good news of salvation will be preached.
"Do not stop him", Said Yahuwshua, "For whoever is not against you is for you." should this kind of people be his true preachers and pastors of his sheep? He knows and so he sent his messenger to rebuke some of them not to follow this type of practices. Therefore, awake, and repent, you might be saved.
Matthew 5:8 "I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. "
who are the ones that changed what the Lord commanded before his ascending? You, hypocritical teachers; you, self-called and men educated "preachers"; you, men elected elders that have no divine power and authorities and full of pride and honor seeking mind; you, organized religious people with no true repentance.
How dare are you to twist what the Lord spoke and commanded. how dare are you to self-proclaim you have the Truth to deceive others. Yet, you have hurt many his little sheep. But fortunately, his sheep hears His voices and follow Him. He heals and leads his own sheep on the path He had planned.
Therefore, repent, you all hypocrites, persecutors, men-aimed compromisers, men-pleasing pastors, and men-taught teachers. Without true repentance, none of us will ever enter the Kingdom of Heaven of G-d. When you hear the trumpet, awake your souls and retreat from what your hearts have been tricked by this world. Follow the Savior Lord Jesus Christ and Carry your own Cross. If you do not have a cross, you are not one of his. If you refuse to carry your cross, you are not worthy of being his disciples. Says all these by the Lord if you forget.
Today is Sabbath. I wrote this message to testify that His commandments are well worthy to keep by all of us who believe in the Lord Yahuwshua. If you keep His commandments and His Holy Sabbath, let us rejoice in Him today. Let us work with Him in Love Today.
May our G-d and our Savior bless us and keep us and edify us and lead us until His return. Amen forever.
