MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE.  PLEASE LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.__

SENDING LOVE TO ALL, PLEASE HEAR HIS WORDS

 

LUKE - 9:23-27 """And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24-''For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25--''For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 26--''For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. 27:--But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of YHVH (G-d).'' 

Matthew 16:24 --''Then said YAHSHA unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me'' 

THIS Generation of Church folks living in the Western World have had very little reason, up until Now; to really think about what Messiah was referring to:  (About taking up their Cross to follow Him) as they have read these verses for years, mostly in complacency; with no real threat to their freedoms, nor have they been Taught, the real ""WAY"" of Salvation and its cost.  Taking up the "Cross of Messiah" has only more recently come to a greater focus,  in similar ways; as compared to the "Roman times".    

YAHSHA Messiah has also said, ''IF ye love me, keep my Commandments"".  JOHN 14:15-31__NOT MY WORDS, But His words.      Obedience to His Commandments were not a suggestion, they were a COMMAND          2 John 1:6 --''And this is love, that we walk after His Commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.  AND WHAT WAS the COMMANDMENT ''Ye HAVE HEARD FROM THE BEGINNING, YE SHOULD WALK IN IT""___IT WAS THE  TORAH  LAW.   

Matthew 5:17 KJV:--''Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil''.   ASV-1901--- Let there be no thought that I have come to put an end to the law or the prophets. I have not come for destruction, but to make complete.     PAUL--Romans 3:31--''Do we then make void the law through faith? YHVH forbid: yea, we establish the law''   

WE MUST UNDERSTAND--there are so many ways to ''Deny Messiah''; and one way is to refuse to Obey His Commandments, because of what it may -''cost us''.  What it may do to our ego, as others look on us as 'strange', because we refuse to follow their ways; and the ways of the world. (We were told to move away from the ways of the world-Ephesians 5:11_Romans 12:12)  The Cost of Following Messiah;  taking up the "Cross";  the Cross of Obedience, The Cross, the Redemption Price (He already paid for each of us, His Obedience to Calvary); was paid in full, and our Right to gain Redemption ;   requires LOVE; Great love  for our Messiah, with all our Heart -soul, strength and mind; the result of which requires OUR OWN Obedience to His Commands.   Any other ideology or religious dogma, is a false Gospel, and will only get us to the place where we will hear Him say:   "Depart from me, --

 MATTHEW 7:21--""Not every one that saith unto me, MASTER shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22--''Many will say to me in that day, MASTER, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23--''And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity''.    EXAMPLE   here of __''WORKS'' BUT NO LOVE and OBEDIENCE.      THE issue of Obedience is crucial to our relationship with Messiah.  There is no escaping this requirement; Messiah has every right to demand our commitment to obey His Commandments.   WE WERE the Sinners that put Him on that Cross/Stake,  and HE paid the ultimate Price.

MATTHEW 7:24--''Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25--''And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26--''And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27--''And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it'' 

 

Uncomfortable truth it may be, but honesty is the best policy,  it  is the ONLY way we will ever attend the Marraige Supper and spend Eternity with Messiah;  as His Bride.    May we see the gravity of this situation as the time we have to make these decisions, to Follow Messiah and ""take up the Cross";  begins to shorten, and the daylight begins to fade.  IS THIS TEMPORARY  chaotic life and ill choices; worth losing ETERNITY'S Grace and Beauty?       Can we possibly name one thing on this temporary Earth, worth trading for our Eternal Soul?    Time to answer that question with all honesty and Intelligent Reason. 

Matthew 16:24 --''Then said YAHSHA unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me''   

MATTHEW 5:20--"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.""

   IN HUMBLE OBEDIENCE
