“And many nations will come and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” -Micah 4:2
(Y’SHUA) YESHUA is the Hebrew name of the MESSIAH, the SON of GOD, the SAVIOR of the world. Translated as Jesus in the English Bible, YESHUA is the Name above every name (Philippians 2:9-11) and means “Salvation Now!” Be Born Anew
It is written: “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” –1 Corinthians 3:11
“Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.” -John 18:37
“We love because he first loved us (emphasis added). This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” -1 John 4:9-10
“Salvation exists in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” -Acts: 4:12
Critical notes: (1.) Christ Jesus is Theocracy. (2.) To know Yeshua is to have relationship with the Living God, not a matter of embracing a new “religion” full of twisted, empty philosophy or tradition. (3.) If we didn’t have inherent freewill, we couldn’t choose to love God or not, and love not given freely isn’t love at all. Testimonies, One with Israel
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” … “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.” -1 John 4:20-21 The process of love
Human history is one long repeating story of people worshipping lesser gods or no god (secularism); that is, pledging their allegiance to sex, power, wealth, prestige, statues, excess materialism, etc., at the same time violently opposing all who stand in their sinful, evil way. e.g., Democracy Dies in Darkness See egoism
“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of the light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” –John 3:19-21 Jesus: “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will never walk in darkness. -John 8:12
A government or individual person not acknowledging Jesus as Savior is dark in understanding life: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Godly love is absent in the secular worldview! e.g. Doomsday Plane, and Despicable human behavior. It is written: “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I [Jesus] came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” -John 10:10 Amplified Bible
“The heart is deceitful above all things And it is extremely sick; Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives?” -Jeremiah 17:9 Amplified Bible
The world’s dating of time revolves around Christ Jesus, Yeshua who is before the beginning of creation. “B.C.” denotes Before Christ (birth), and “A.D.” denotes “In the year of our Lord” (presently; since death and resurrection from the grave). The secular realm often expresses it whereby “B.C.E.” denotes “Before Common Era” and “C.E.” denotes Common Era trying to suppress Jesus’ reality to their own destruction. Which ever calendar one uses, the most significant historical event took place: the birth of Christ Jesus, Savior of the world; God in the flesh! Who do you say that He is?
Many people are very uncomfortable in talking about Jesus or answering Jesus’ question, “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:17). People are considered eternally lost until their spirit connects relationally with Jesus and His life-giving Holy Spirit.
“Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” -Matthew 16:15-18
“Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?” -Ezekiel 18:23
