The teachings of Yahshua (the Savior) in large part have been replaced with the traditions and doctrines of men. We must have a personal Spiritual relationship with our Messiah, in order that we might obtain the promise of Salvation through Him.
The true name of the Messiah is not Jesus. Our Yahshua (a title that means Savior) is Yahweh manifest in the flesh. The concealment of the true name and identity of Yahweh, is part of a vast Conspiracy against Messiah that involves the doctrine of the trinity. It is the result of the lying pen of the scribes.
The false teachers in the Church declare that we are to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. However, a great deception within Christianity transpires, if we fail to realize that Yahshua (the Savior) is actually the image of Yahweh (Col 1:15, 1 Tim 3:16).
The teachings of our Messiah, on Salvation, the New Covenant, and what it means to become born-again are not understood by many. The deceptive teachers that are without the Spirit of Yahweh have blinded their followers from having a true understanding of His Gospel.
Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the truth is based upon individual or group-think rationalization. But through the teachings of Yahweh’s Spirit that dwells within each true believer, the Baptism into one singular body without any division transpires (John 16:13, Rom 12:5).
There is only one fold and one shepherd. There is only one body of believers that faithfully follow the true Savior.
John 10:11-12 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep
Seventeen times in the New Testament the word shepherd is used. This word shepherd is always used in the singular when referring to the Messiah. The teachings of Yahweh are clear on this essential doctrine.
Jer 31:10 Hear the words of Yahweh, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
When the Son of man comes in His glory, with all of His holy angels, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory. All of mankind shall be gathered together and He will separate the righteous from those who work iniquity, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats (Matt 25:31-32). This is what is commonly referred to as the rapture, which is the gathering together of the saints. However, no one is taken up to heaven, as Yahshua (the Savior) brings all of the Elect to earth to reign with him for a thousand years.
This fulfills two promises namely:
- “Thy Kingdom come thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
- “When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads for your redemption (which is also your Salvation) is at hand (Mat 6:10, Luke 21:28).
John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
There is only one verse in all of the New Testament where the word shepherd, is translated to pastors (Eph 4:11). The problem with this translation is significant.
Just as there is only One Savior, there is also only One true shepherd, or overseer of our souls (Isa 43:11, 1 Peter 2:25).
John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
The teachings of Yahshua (the Savior) on Salvation
The teachings of Yahshua (the Savior) show that we can have the assurance of Salvation, through His Spirit of Truth. Many religious people claim to have already obtained Salvation, but this belief is based on a false sense of security, and it represents a great deception.
Those who receive their Biblical insight from the teachings of men who have the spirit of this world are deceived.
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.
Multitudes today are constantly learning and yet they are unable to come to the knowledge of the truth. The reason for this is that they do not care to discern the Gospel truths for themselves. Instead they trust in the doctrines of men (1 Tim 6:5-6, 2 Tim 3:17, 2 Tim 3:1-17, Isa 29:13).
Isa 29:13 Wherefore Yahweh said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
John 14:26-27 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, the same shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
For the spirit filled believer, the assurance of Salvation is when they are Sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. This is the down payment, or earnest, unto the inheritance of eternal life (Eph 1:13-14).
Our Savior said, 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 flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (John 3:5-6).
The answers men seek are contained in the Word of Yahweh; they are only a mystery to those who are not sealed through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
John the Baptist proclaimed that are two Baptisms. One of them is unto repentance, and as a result of the other, we can have an assurance of Salvation.
Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire:
It is not that we are Saved, but that we shall be Saved, if we faithfully endure. Our hope, is the assurance of Salvation, this too is a gift that is confirmed by the Spirit of Yahweh (Rom 5:5, 8:24-25, 15:13, 1 Thes 5:8).
Jer 17:7 Blessed is the man that trusts in Yahweh, whose hope is in Yahweh
He that believeth and is baptized, (with the Holy Spirit) shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned (Mark 16:16, Rom 8:9). Emphasis added
When are the Elect Gathered Together
The truth regarding the end time gathering is very clear. Our Messiah declared, one shall be taken and the other shall be left behind. As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the Son of Man returns.
Mark 13:24-27 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
Yahshua (the Savior) confirmed that after the tribulation He would gather together the elect. It would be unnecessary to gather the heavenly host if it were not for the fact that they also were to reign on earth with Him for a thousand years.
The apostle Paul understood that he would receive his crown of righteousness at the same time as all those that love Messiah’s appearing do. To teach that one shall be taken to receive the reward of eternal life before the tribulation, while the apostle waits until the end of the tribulation for his is utter nonsense.
Yahweh, our Savior, will judge those who are alive and those that are dead when He returns to reign on earth (Isa 2:4, 33:22, Zep 3:8, John 12:48, 2 Peter 3:7, 2 Tim 4:1, 4:8, Heb 10:30, 1 Thes 4:16).
Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war
The brightness, even the glory of Yahweh, is manifest as Messiah, who is (Yahshua) our Savior (Col 1:15, Heb 1:3, 2 Cor4:4).
If there is a pre-tribulation rapture escape clause, then a certain group escapes the judgment. But this is impossible, as it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment (2 Tim 4:1; Heb 9:27-28).
Peter presents us with a message that the new age church does not want to talk about, because they do not want to understand it. The true church will partake in Messiah’s sufferings and are able to endure with the power of His Spirit that dwells within them.
1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you, But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Messiah’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
Yahweh’s New Covenant
Mark 2:21-22 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
It is impossible to mix the New Testament permanent Covenant, with the Old Testament temporary Law. Putting new wine into an old bottle will cause both to perish because the old bottle is not designed for the new. Under the Old Testament Law, there was a temple that Yahweh’s Spirit dwelt in. Under the new law we are the temple that he dwells in (1 Cor 3:16-17; 1 Cor 6:19).
Yahweh’s new Covenant (or contract) is not just better than the Old Covenant; it has truly replaced it!
John 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now
Our Messiah has brought forth the good wine last, which is the New Covenant. The first wine which was the Old Covenant was temporal. Also the first was fulfilled or completed after the Cross and has since vanished.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Without the hearing by faith, the Spirit of Yahweh would not be received, and His New Covenant would not be understood. When His Spirit dwells within us we can then understand His Covenant truths.
