Y’Shua is YHVH
When people realize that the Tanakh is still valid in our lives today, they very often start to struggle with the concept of â€œYHVH echad.â€ What most people do not realize is that physical manifestations of YHVH also happened in the Tanakh. Y’Shua is however far more than just a physical manifestation as His name already indicates. Can we believe in the divinity of Y’Shua and still hold on to the Shema?
What is Sanctification and why we need it?
We have come to realize that the topic of sanctification is probably one of the most overlooked topics in the believing community. There is a lot of focus on salvation and very little emphasis on sanctification. This is most likely caused by the incorrect assumption that salvation fixes everything in our lives. Salvation is foundational, but there is more to a set apart life. It is both the start and the destination of our journey, but there is a need for sanctification in between. This is the reason for this article. We want to show you that after we choose to believe in Y’shua, we still need to work on becoming set apart to Him through the process of sanctification.
An Excellent Wife
When we think about being an excellent wife, we picture the image we feature here. It is, however, not about performance. It goes much deeper.
The mind will justify what the heart desires.
The mind will justify what the heart desires. This is not only true when it comes to the keeping of YHVH’s commandments. The fears in our hearts can ruin us. Our mind is able to bend reality to justify not only our desires, but also these fears. Our hearts are deceitful and evil comes forth from it. Our challenge is to overcome this through repentance and seek YHVH’s kingdom and counsel in everything we do.
The names of other Deities
It is written in Scripture that we are not to mention the names of other deities. Is it correct to understand this to mean that we are not to, even say these names when referring to another god? In this study, we shall see what we can learn from scripture in this regard. We shall also look into the roots of words. There are teachings that state that we cannot use certain English words like mercy, grace, faith and wisdom because the roots of these words are of heathen or pagan origin. We shall show you from Scripture how both these teachings are in contradiction with Scripture.
