As the Messiah was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching, and proceeding on His way to Jerusalem. When someone asked him, "Master, are there just a few who will be saved?" The Messiah answered him, "Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. Luke 13:22-24

The word 'strive' is the Greek wordagoĢ„nizomai# G75 in the Strong's Concordance. You'll notice it contains the root word 'agoniz'. What the Savior is telling us is that in order to inherit Eternal Life we have to make an agonizing effort to enter through that Narrow Gate.

Contrary to what the Christian ministers are teaching their followers today, salvation is not a matter of one's bowing their head and saying what's called a 'sinner's prayer'.

Six different times in the Gospels the Messiah tells us that we need to “lose our lives and allow him to live his life in us” if we hope to be saved on Judgment Day. (Mat 10:38-39; 16:24-25; Mar 8:34-35; Luk 9:23-24; 17:33; John 12:24-25)

The apostle Paul warns us in Phil 2:12 to “"... work out your salvation with fear and trembling;”

The apostle Peter asks the questionIf it is with difficulty that the Righteous are scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly man and the sinner  ? 1 Peter 4:18 . The answer is the sinners will not make it on Judgment Day.

The passages below make it clear that it was “sin” that the Messiah came to save us from, and no one who continues in sin will be saved. “Sin” is a violation of the Heavenly Father's Law, His Torah. Please consider carefully the following passages: 

When someone asked the Messiah "What must I do to inherit Eternal Life" unlike the Christian ministers of today who through their misunderstanding of the Scriptures tell their parishioners to bow their head and say a prayer, the Savior told the man to "keep the Commandments"

         Mat 19:16  "... what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?"
         Mat 19:17  "... if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."

The Messiah died to save us from "sin". 

Mat 1:21  "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Yahoshua, for He will save His people from their sins."
John 5:14  Afterward Yahoshua found him in the temple and said to him, "Behold, you have become well;
do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you."
John 8:11  She said, "No one, Lord." And Yahoshua said, "I do not condemn you, either.
Go. From now on sin no more."
1 John 3:5  You know that
He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

  •  Sin is a violation of the Heavenly Father Law, the Torah.

1 John 3:4  Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

  • Can those in the Messiah continue to sin, that is can they continue to violate Yahuweh's Law?  Let's allow the apostle Paul to answer that question.

Rom 6:1-2  What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? Yahuweh  forbid!  How shall we who died to sin still live in it?      

Rom 2:13  "... not the hearers of the law are just before Yahuweh, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

1 Cor 6:9  "...do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of Yahuweh?

  • "Righteousness" is obeying the commandments and "Sin" is violating the commandments

1 John 3:7- 8  Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous the one who practices sin is of the devil; ..... 

1 John 3:9-10 No one who is born of Yahuweh practices sin.... By this the children of Yahuweh and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of Yahuweh....

Deut 6:25  "It will be righteousness for us if we are careful to observe all this commandment before Yahuweh our Elohim, just as He commanded us.

Clearly the Savior died to save us from our sins, and not from his Father's Law. The Law given to Israel at Mount Sinai will endure "forever". Now in this age and in the age to come.

Matt 5:18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

Peter tells us that because of their lack of understanding in the Scriptures many people are twisting some of the things the apostle Paul said concerning the Heavenly Father's Law. things that even the apostle Peter found hard to understand, and consequently so did many of the Jews in his day, as does almost all of Christians today. And because of these "Hard Sayings of Paul" many Christians today are of the belief that they no longer have to obey the heavenly Father's Law, His Torah.  If you're one of those that think Paul spoke of the Law as not having to be obeyed please consider carefully Peter's warning.

2 Pet 3:15-17 "...our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, ...speaking in them of these things, in which are some things are hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of LAWLESS men and fall from your own steadfastness,

In verse 17 the word translated "lawless" is #113 in the Strong's Concordance. The KJV uses the word "wicked" and the NASV uses the word "unprincipled" but the literal meaning is "lawless". Who are these "Lawless" men that Peter is warning us about? It's the ministers who through their misunderstanding of some of the things the apostle Paul said, are misleading their congregations into thinking that the Heavenly Father's Law no longer has to be obeyed. And as Peter tells us the lawless ministers and their congregations will be destroyed on Judgement Day   

The Messiah tells us that many on Judgement Day will find out when it's to late that because of their disobedience to the Law they will be cast out.

Mat 7:22  "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'

Mat 7:23  "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' 

The apostle Paul tells us in words that are hard to misunderstand that those who live without the Law, such as most of Christianity today, will perish without the Law. He goes on to say that it's not those who 'hear' the Law that will be justified but rather it's those who do the Law that will be justified. Rom 2:11-13 

Rom 2:11  For there is no partiality with Yahuweh.
Rom 2:12  For all who have sinned without the Law (the Christian) will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law (the non-believing Jew) will be judged by the Law;
Rom 2:13  for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before Yahuweh, but the doers of the Law (the followers of Messiah 1 John 2:3-6) will be justified.

The Heavenly Father's Name

Exo 3:15  Elohim, furthermore, said to Moses, "Yahuweh, ....' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.

Did you know that the Heavenly Father put His Name in His book, the Bible, over 6,823 times? Why is it than that most people that read the Bible, Jew and Christian alike, never heard of the Almighty's Name? Is it important that you know the heavenly Fathe's Name? You be the judge Click here to read the articles and view the video.

Psa 83:18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is Yahuweh, Are the Most High over all the earth.

Isa 52:6 "Therefore My people shall know My name; therefore in that day I am the one who is speaking, 'Here I am.'"

       Mal 3:16 Then those who feared Yahuweh spoke to one another, and Yahuweh gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear Yahuweh and who esteem His name.

       Mat 6:9 "Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

       Rom 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "for this very purpose I raised you up, to demonstrate my power in you and that My Name might be proclaimed throughout the whole earth."

Shocking but true - the Savior NEVER heard the name 'Jesus' !

 Are you aware that the letter “J” did not exist in any language on the face of the      earth until the year 1520 A.D., And was not in popular use for roughly another 100 years. Even in the year 1611, when the original King James Bible was written the letter 'J' was not in popular use, for it is not found in the King James Bible of 1611 not one time. Let me repeat that, “the original 1611 King James Bible does not contain the letter 'J' not even one time. If the letter 'J' didn't exist until the year 1520, and was never used in the 1611 King James Bible, than how could the Messiah's name have been pronounce “Jesus”? The answer is “it wasn't”. The One who died for the sins of Israel was never called by the name 'Jesus', nor did he or anyone else in his day ever hear the name 'Jesus'. Why? Because the name 'Jesus' would not have existed for roughly another 1,500 years. With that being the case then what name was Peter talking about when he said

Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

If the name whereby we must be saved is not 'Jesus' which it cannot be since that name did not exist when Peter made that statement, what is the name by which we must be saved? For the answer as to what name was the Messiah was/is called by click here.

               The Rapture

Who will be taken and Who will be left

The answer is almost sure to shock you - "click here"

"I said you are elohim (g-ds)"  John 10:34

The Messiah asked the Pharisees "If He, that is the Heavenly Father, called them elohim (g-ds) to whom the word of Elohim (G-d) came..."

Who are these elohim (g-ds) that the Father was referring to? Most Christians and Jews are unaware of the fact that "the judges of Israel, Moses, angels and Samuel the prophet" are all referred to as "elohim" or "gods", as it is translated in many Bibles? Find out the reason why "click here"  

                         The Trinity

 

With billions of Christians believing in a Triune god, that is a 3 in 1 god known as the  "Trinity" one would think that it's talked about throughout the entire Bible, and yet the fact is it's never mentioned in the Bible, not one single time. Why is that? Click Here to find out the answer.

What 'must' we believe about the Messiah !

Please turn in your Bble to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. 
Please turn in your Bible to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. Can't  find it? How about the passage that tells us that the Messiah is the 2nd person of the Triune godhead? You say "That's not there either"?  How about the passage that calls him "god the son". No, again that term is never found in the Bible. You're not going to find any of those phrases ever mentioned in the Bible and yet that is exactly what the majority of Christianity today  believes.

If such terms as god/man, god the son. or the 2nd person of the Triune godhead are never mentioned in the Bible then what exactly are we told to believe about the Messiah Yahoshua? In this article we'll be taking a look at everything the Bible tells us about the Messiah and what it is we MUST believe about Him in order to be saved, many things that most people never even notice before.  To view the artiflce "click here".  

 

This article is intended for the honest individual who has a sincere desire for the truth of God’s word, the Bible, and not simply belonging to a particular religion.

Please consider this simply fact. In the world today there are literally 1,000’s of Christian denominations in the world today, and yet they all claim to read and believe the same book, the Bible. How can that be? I believe the answer is a fairly simply one, even though they all say they believe ‘every word,’ - they don’t.

This should be a sobering thought for those of us who are basing our ’eternity’ on the truths which God has revealed to us in His Word.

The Messiah said, “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32)

No one has ever been set free by believing a lie.

In this article I’ll list a number of passages, bible teaching, that I’ve discussed with numerous pastors and ministers over the last few decades, and as you’ll see the ‘teaching’ from the bible are very clear and easy to understand these ‘ministers’ refused to accept them. And consequently those that follow these ministers are being mislead.

In the past I’ve often tried to understand how a minister, a man who was suppose to be ‘leading people on the path to salvation’ would reject any ‘truth’ from God’s word when it is shown to him. I’m sure there are far more reasons then I could speculate on, but I believe, that is it is my opinion for I’m not judging any man’s motives, one reason might be, is that when a minister’s livelihood, his financial support: food, shelter, medical care, and so on, depends on those in his congregation, he may be a little hesitant to preach ‘against ‘ a long held tradition of his particular church.

A lot of the bible passages that will be quoted in this article are going to be just such ’truths.’ Truths that if they where accepted by those that profess to believe in God’s Word, all these 1000’s of ‘denominations’ or divisions, would no longer be. They would all be part of the body of the Messiah, Yahoshua, and not 1,000’s of various Christian groups, none of them believing the same thing.

An Offer to any sincere individual or group

As I mentioned earlier what your about to read I’ve discussed with many ministers in the past and I would count it a blessing to discuss, not argue, them again with any individual, bible study group or congregation, publicly or privately.

I believe the reason the angels in heaven rejoice over ‘one’ sinner that repents, is because it doesn’t happen to often. To the ‘ministers’ and all those that consider themselves teachers: would you be willing to forsake all for the Truth of God’s Word? If embracing any of the Truths you’re about to read in this article meant losing your congregation, or your friends and possibly even members of your family () would you be willing put aside any false teaching you’ve preached over the years and embrace that truth? Please consider carefully the words of the Savior in the following passages and allow the Father’s Spirit teach you.

Mat 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Mat 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mat 10:36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Mat 10:37 He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38 And he that takes not his cross, and follows after me, is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:39 He that finds his life shall lose it: and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it.

(Possibly delete, unless I have space to talk about it)

In John 6:44-45, the Savior gives a two conditions that have to be meet, concerning all those that will come onto him.

He tells us that only those that are being called, or drawn, by the Father can come onto him. And how are we drawn to him?

John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Therefore every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.

Years ago an individual once told me that he knew of a woman that had only one verse in the bible memorized, John 3’:16. And this individual said she “got more people saved with just that one verse.” I asked how is that be possible? I would think that if someone never heard of the Savior in the past and someone were to quote Jon 3:16 my first question would be, “what is it that I have to believe about this person? For how could someone say that they believe in someone and not know who that person is or what it is they said or represent? Well according to the words of the Savior that we’ve just read, that isn’t possible. The Messiah clearly tells us “they shall be all taught of God. Therefore every man that has heard and has learned of the Father comes to the Savior.”

For an individual to ’come to the Savior’ they would have, or should have, first been taught of God. And how would that of happened? Through the reading of the ’only’ scriptures that were available to anyone at the time the Messiah spoke these words, that being the Tanak*, the so-called Old Testament.

What your about to read are 3 things the Savior said that should be believed and accepted by all who say that know him, but the sad truth is that what your about to read isn’t believe by most Christian Churches today.

1) John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Yahshua Messiah, whom thou hast sent.

2) Matthew 5:17-19, Rom 2:11-13

3) Luke 13:22-23 few saved.

Did you notice what the Messiah said about the Heavenly Father? That He is the ‘Only’ true God. How many Christians today believe the words of the Master, that the Father is the only true God. Most churches twist or misunderstand a handful of passages such as Gen 1:26, Is 9:6, John 1:1, Jn 8:58, Jn 10:34, Jn 20:28, and XXXXX.

And completely ignore or deny all that Yahshua Messiah said about himself.

That the Heavenly Father is not only ‘our God’ but also ‘his God.’

(John 20:17; Mk 15:34; Jn 11:21-22; Rev 3:12)

That he wasn’t God but

The ‘Son of God’ (Matt 14:33; Matt 26:63; Matt 27:43, 54; Mk 1:1; Jn 20:31;

(Contrary to what many believe the phrase ‘God the Son’ never appears in Bible.)

The ‘Word of God’ not ‘god the word’

The ‘Lamb of God’ not ‘god the lamb’

The first born of God’s creation (XXXXXXX)

Yahshua came not to do his will but the will of God, His Father.

Act 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Act 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Act 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

Act 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Act 9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.

Rom 1:4 And declared [to be] the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

1Jo 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

;1Jo 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

1Jo 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

1Jo 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

2Pe 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Rev 19:13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
