Our Creator’s name and the name of His Son
In the previous post, we have seen how poor scholarship can lead to deceptions and misconceptions. In this post, we shall look at the name of YHVH and Y’shua. The purpose is not to create contention, on the contrary; it is to bring peace. We want to show you, firstly, that we are living in a time of restoration, and that we are to embrace that. However, secondly, that we are in this to be loving and patient toward one another for we do not have all truth revealed to us yet.
The Fourth Commandment – Part 4 – What did Y’shua do?
We have learned from the three previous studies, who changed the fourth commandment, why we should keep it, and how to keep it. The big question is: what did Y’shua and His apostles do? We shall now study the Apostolic Scriptures to see what Y’shua did and taught. He is our Master, and we are His disciples. We are, as believers in Him, formed into His likeness when we believe in Him and are obedient to Him.
Faith is something you do!
We all know that our salvation is by faith through His grace. If we believe that His Son, Y’Shua our Messiah, has died for us without any sin and was resurrected from the dead, then we have eternal life. But why does it then make any difference what I do? I cannot earn my salvation through works, thus I can do what I like and my salvation is secured. In this article I will proof to you that this believe is in contradiction to what our Messiah taught. Even Paul does not subscribe to this even though his verse of “cursed under the law” (Galations 3:10) is very frequently misquoted to support this theology. Let us examine the scriptures to see why it makes a difference what I say and do.
