I would expect that since there are only 10 Commandments that God highlighted among the 613 commandments He gave us that He must really think that these 10 are REALLY important. One Commandment that probably gets overlooked too much, or not taken seriously enough is to REMEMBER THE SABBATH. As the sabbath is on its way I want to encourage you to Remember the Sabbath. If you need to, take a few moments and think about why God would want you to remember the Sabbath.
Check out this short video. As I look over my journey with God I see how He has directed my paths and I am very grateful for this.
On Shabbat Jewish women light 2 candles as the sun is setting on Friday night. As the candles burn in the evening you can see light pushing back darkness. What a picture for all of us. Messiah says we are to be the light of the world. Messiah’s Light should shine through us so it pushes back darkness in the world around us. Let your light shine!
Satan’s biggest deception is getting mankind to NOT BELIEVE in God.
So that we believe God (Elohim) is not real and He is just a fable or myth made up by a primative culture, alien visitors or just an imaginary friend made up by the weak minded. If there is no God, then Jesus (Yeshua) was never sent as our savior to restore us to God and our rightful place in heaven for all eternity. IF there is no hell or eternal damnation then there is no devil, no heaven and ultimately there is no consequences for our sins which separates us from God. IF there is no God, no hell or eternal separation from God, then there is no need for a savior thus, Jesus died on the cross for nothing . Then if we believe that mankind can create our own set of moral codes to live by that does not hurt others we are good people.
THE BIBLE TELLS US CLEARLY THERE IS A GOD, A SAVIOR, A HEAVEN AND ETERNAL LIFE, EITHER SPENT WITH GOD OR FOREVER SEPARATED FROM HIS LOVE. THEREFORE WHOSEVER BELIEVES IN GOD CAN BE SAVED THROUGH YESHUA (JESUS CHRIST) AND OPERATE IN THE FULL POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HEAL, DELIVER AND RAISE UP.
Genesis 15:6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
Exodus 4:5 “This,” said the LORD, “is so that they may believe that the LORD, the God of their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared to you.”
In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe.
Then they believed his promises and sang his praise. Isaiah 43:10
“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe.
After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken. John 3:18
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. John 5:38
nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.
How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God ?
If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. John 6:29
Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 11:40
Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.”
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”
Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.
We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” John 11:25
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
“Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins.”
Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.
LORD I BELIEVE, HELP MY UNBELIEF!
Mark 9:14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him. 16 “What are you arguing with them about?” he asked. 17 A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. 18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.” 19 “You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” 20 So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. 21 Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered. 22 “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” 23 “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” 24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” 26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
Well eternal separation from God is REAL.
Matthew 5:22 “But I (Jeus) say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”
