New to Scripture?
Hello and Welcome!
Scripture says that those who have salvation will one day rule the world!
Revelation 20:4 "...and they came to life and reigned with Messiah a thousand years."
Revelation 5:10 "And hast made us unto our Yahuah kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."
But only a few will attain that Kingdom because without Yahusha, man is in the kingdom of darkness
We must practice righteousness
1John 3:10 " In this the children of Yahuah and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of Yahuah"
I certainly don't want to be a child of the devil! I want to be a child of Yahuah. So now I know I must practice righteousness. But I have sinned against Yahuah, what do I do now?
We are born in sin. Children don't need to be taught how to sin. They will do so naturally.
All have sinned!
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of Yahuah"
We naturally want our own way!
From the bottom of our heart, we are sinners.
Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
Left unchecked, we will die forever because of our unrighteousness!
Oh, what a terrible thing this is! But we need to know it!
Romans 5:12 " Therefore, just as by one man sin entered into the world, (ADAM) and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, because ALL HAVE SINNED" Romans 8:7 "Because the carnal mind is hostile against Yahuah: for it is not subject to the law of Yahuah"
In this condition, man has no fellowship with Yahuah and because he breaks Yahuah's law, he will not be given eternal life!
What is Yahuah going to do about all this? Anything?
"Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the free gift of Yahuah [is] eternal life through Yahusha Messiah our Master" 1John 3:4 " Whoever practices sin practices also lawlessness: and sin is lawlessness" (Lawlessness = no law)
Yes! A way out has now been provided if we want to be MADE RIGHTEOUS (even though we haven't been righteous) and have eternal life with Yahuah and with our Messiah.
We can have our sins wiped out if we only turn away from them and accept the one appointed for us.
Acts 3:19-20 "Repent therefore, and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of Yahuah, and that he may send Yahusha, the Messiah appointed for you "
You see, Yahuah the Father and His Son Yahusha really do love us! Here is proof.
Yahuah sent His Son Yahusha into the world so that we could be saved from our sinful condition.
John 3:16 "For Yahuah so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life"
Let me tell you more!
Yahusha came to save the world, not condemn it!
>John 3:17 "For Yahuah did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world should be saved through Him"
Yahuah calls to YOU..
Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, says Yahuah: though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they will be as wool."
Notice, He didn't say "You have sinned too much and your sin is too great, I don't want you", He said "though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow!" I believe Him!
And Yahusha says to you...
We can have our burden lifted away. Yahusha said:
Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Through the death of Yahusha the Messiah, His righteousness can miraculously be applied to us and we need not carry around this burden of sin any longer.
What love He had for us, to give His own life!
Romans 5:8 "But Yahuah demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us." 1Peter 2:24 "And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and turn to righteousness: for by His wounds you were healed."
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Although Yahusha died for us, He was raised up into eternal life.
In the same way Yahusha was given LIFE at His resurrection, you too can be given Life!
Acts 3:15 "Whom Yahuah raised from the dead" 1John 5:11 "Yahuah has given us eternal life, and this is in his Son." Revelation 1:18 (Yahusha speaking) "I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of hades"
As a believer you are a Hebrew graphted branch! Graphted by faith in the Messiah Yahusha!
