For the New Covenant believer, to obtain Salvation we must be born again, and thus have the hope of eternal life is realized. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of Yahweh (John 3:3). Salvation occurs after the second advent of Messiah the Savior, when the Elect shall put on immortality and incorruption (Rom 2:7, 1 Cor 15:53).
With regards to the first resurrection, the ones who were beheaded for their testimony did not worship the beast; these faithful servants lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. The blessing bestowed upon these Saints is that the second death hath no power over them (Rev 20:4-6).
Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of Yahweh, and for the testimony which they held
Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death
There is also a remnant of believers who survive the great tribulation (proving there is no secret pre tribulation rapture); these shall be with Yahweh forever.
1 Thes 4:16 For Yahweh himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Yahweh: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first
1 Thes 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet Yahweh in the air: and so shall we ever be with Yahweh
The false preachers and their ungodly teachings, typically are the result of a flawed education that is received from a religious college or training institute. Those who are not taught by Yahweh’s Spirit, will typically present faulty interpretations of scriptures that do not represent the actual word of Yahweh (John 14:26).
Deceptive teachers convince their followers that the position of authority they hold is ordained from on high, even though they bring forth convoluted and distorted doctrines that represent irreconcilable contradictions. The Holy Spirit is not a person of the trinity, nor is the Spirit God. The Spirit comes forth from God.
1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh, for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
To make a claim of being saved in the present tense is an act of self-righteousness; it is also a doctrine of deceit. The judgment begins when Messiah the Savior who is the very image of Yahweh, returns and this is when the righteous shall be saved.
1 Peter 4:17-18 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of Yahweh: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of Yahweh? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
The truth regarding Salvation is clearly taught throughout the scriptures, and yet the Word of Yahweh and the doctrines of men are constantly at odds with each other (Rom 8:7-9).
Utilizing scriptural integrity and spiritual understanding, the correlation between our regeneration and salvation become rather evident (Tit 3:5, Math 19:24-28).
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name ______ for he shall save his people from their sins. (Mat 1:21). The name of Jesus does not belong in Mat 1:21, according to Mat 1:23, where our Savior is called Immanuel, meaning God is with us. Also according to Isa 9:6, this child is called the everlasting Father.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, even the renewing by the Holy Spirit
Instead of using the word saved, the future tense version of this word should be used.
He will save us through the washing of regeneration, even our renewing by means of His Spirit.
Matthew chapter nineteen is the only other place where this word regeneration (G 3824), is used in relationship to becoming saved.
In the regeneration, our Salvation or deliverance is realized and eternal life is the reward. Our corruptible natures will be made incorruptible, and our mortal bodies will be clothed with immortality (Mat 19:28, 24:13, Titus 3:5, Rom 12:2, 1 Cor 15:50-54).
Messiah the Savior said to his disciples, truly I say unto you, a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven (Matt 19:24).
Math 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, who then can be saved?
Messiah said unto them, truly I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel (Matt 19:28).
The true disciples of Messiah do indeed understand that to inherit the kingdom of heaven is to receive the Salvation of one’s soul.
1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls
The crown of righteousness is the reward given to the Elect at our Savior’s second coming. This is when our Salvation actually occurs.
2 Tim 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which Yahweh, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing
The apostle Paul will receive the crown of righteousness at the same time as all those that love their Messiah’s appearing do. This occurs after the time of the 3 ½ year great tribulation.
The pre-tribulation rapture preachers teach that Christians are rewarded with eternal life before the tribulation. However, Paul is not crowned until the end of this tribulation event. Also according to this rapture theory, the Church escapes the end times judgments as well (2 Tim 4:1).
Our Messiah declared, one shall be taken and the other shall be left behind. Yahweh’s elect are left behind, to inherit the Kingdom on earth at His Second Coming.
Born Again Unto A New Life
In order to be saved at the end of this age, we must be born again. This spiritual transformation occurs when the Spirit of Yahweh is received (Mark 16:16, Luke 3:16, John 3:5).
For in this present body we do groan, being burdened. Not for that we would be unclothed, but that we would be clothed so that our mortality might be consumed and replaced with eternal life (2 Cor 5:4).
Gal 3:29 And if ye are Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise
Those who belong to Yahweh the Savior, are heirs to the kingdom (James 2:5). And it is obvious that His children (the rightful heirs) have yet to receive their inheritance. So then, Salvation can’t be lost because we have not yet been Saved (Rom 8:17-23).
Simply put an heir can’t enjoy their inheritance until they receive it.
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life
The assurance of Salvation is realized by those who understand that we must be born again. The law of the Spirit of life through Messiah has provided freedom from the law of sin unto death (Rom 8:2-3).
There are hundreds of Bible verses that have been substantially altered; Titus 3:6, and John 17:3, are prime examples of these mistranslations. This conspiracy against Messiah is but a futile attempt to conceal His identity as the everlasting Father who is also the Almighty Yahweh (Isa 9:6).
Tit 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour
Which is poured out on us abundantly through Messiah our Savior (Titus 3:6).
In this interpretation the word he is added to justify the false teaching of the trinity. However, when we read and understand the context of Titus chapter three, a wonderful promise is revealed.
The love of Yahweh through the manifestation of Messiah our Savior, who is referred to many as Jesus, is such that he pours out His Spirit upon those who become heirs. These also have the hope of eternal life (Titus 3:4-7).
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true Yahweh, even our Messiah, who is sent forth (John 17:3).
The Word of Yahweh is spiritually discerned, and the proper translation of John 10:30, “I (am) indeed the Father, I AM One” allows us to also comprehend Isaiah 25:9, John 17:3, and Luke 2:11.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David (the) Savior, which is Yahweh the Messiah (Luke 2:11).
Messiah our Savior declared, “I am come with my Father’s name,” and “I proceeded forth and came from Yahweh” (John 5:43, 8:42).
Yahweh’s plan of Salvation has been replaced with a counterfeit that represents the commandments and doctrines of men (Mark 7:7).
2 Tim 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables
Those who claim that they have already been saved usually also profess to being born again. If one believes, albeit falsely, that they have already received their Salvation can they really be born again?
Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of Yahweh’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of Yahweh
We must not allow deceptive teachings to present us with false hopes. If we take up our cross, and faithfully follow Yahweh, we can be saved. And it is the hope of our Salvation, that enables us to endure all things (many tribulations) for and with Yahweh our Messiah, who will come again in the flesh (Matt 16:24, 24:13-22).
The Spiritual Phenomenon of Being Born Again
Salvation is impossible to obtain until the second advent of our Messiah. And it is impossible to be saved without the Baptism of Yahweh’s Spirit. This transformation changes everything.
Salvation is not achieved by simply reciting Bible verses, nor does it come automatically once a confession of faith is made.
A true Spiritual Birth is when the Spirit of Yahweh dwells within us, and that is when we’re really born again. And to be sealed with Yahweh’s Spirit, is to receive the earnest or down payment, unto our Salvation (Eph 1:13-14).
Our knowledge of Salvation is realized through Yahweh’s Holy Spirit that allows us to rightly divide His Word of Truth. It is His Spirit that enlightens and transforms our minds to receive the “Revelation of His Commandments” whilst also avoiding the doctrines of men.
Mat 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known
Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have
Through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, a Believer’s Hope is converted into the Assurance of Salvation, because they are born again.
Messiah our Savior answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yahweh. That which is born of the flesh is fleshly (or carnal); and that which is born of the Spirit is Spiritual (John 3:5-6).
We must be born again and not boast of our own works. Our pride is in the workings of Yahweh through us, by means of His Spirit that resides in us (2 Tim 1:9, Titus 1:16, 2:14, 3:5, James 2:14-17).
The true knowledge of the Kingdom of Yahweh, and thus the assurance of Salvation will occur when we are sealed with His Spirit of promise. This is what transpires when we are born again (John 3:3-8).
2 Cor 1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts
Many, who claim that they are born again, have never really experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Their pastors convince them that they are saved and automatically born-again or spirit-filled. And yet they produce no spiritual evidence to confirm that this so-called transformational process has transpired (John 14:17, 15:26, 16:13, Eph 1:13).
The Spirit is a gift from Yahweh and it is the down payment (or earnest) given to those who have been cleansed by the shed blood of the Lamb.
Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory
The completion of this contract with us is to be fully realized at our Savior’s second coming. This is when our Salvation is received.
