While researching for an article, I came across a verse that suddenly jumped out at me. This verse states that we can live righteously, yet get no heavenly reward. How could this be? That is quite a scary thought which necessitates further investigation. Please read this and share for we are all guilty in one way or another.

Did you know that trees can be uncircumcised, and that we are not to partake of an uncircumcised tree? This prohibition is written in the book of Leviticus. We recently were asked how to apply this commandment in our lives. We are also planning to plant some fruit trees in future, so we need to learn how to care for them and when we can start eating their fruit.
For these reasons, we want to explore what this means and how to apply this commandment in our lives. Please join us as we learn about this.
In the Gospel of John we have a recording of a conversation that took place between Y’Shua and a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus. This is a very profound discussion that can only be appreciated by understanding the context of the questions and answers. In order to understand any message clearly we also need to understand the sender and the receiver of the message. To appreciate the answers that Y’Shua gives Nicodemus, we must think like Nicodemus would have thought. With this study we will show you the longevity of this message by analyzing the perceptions of the sender and receiver of the message. You will come to see that the answer given to Nicodemus reveals the Messiah to us and also tells us how to ensure that we will see the Kingdom of YHVH.
YHVH gave His people prophesies in order for them (and us) to know that He is in control since the very beginning. He is not surprised by what happens in the world or in our lives. Prophecies are also for our re-assurance when we fear and doubt; it strengthens us when our faith is weak. YHVH had a plan from the beginning and Y’shua was part of His plan. How do we know if Y’shua was the prophesied Messiah?
