YaHuWaH wants those who want Him!
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20
One of the biggest mistakes we can make is to think we have the right and luxury of re-defining words and terms in the Scriptures to fit our personal scope of things, and/or current societal attitudes.
Lately, I am reminded again that when the Scriptures speaks of MANY, it means most, majority, nearly all.
And when it speaks of FEW, it means very little, hardly existent, very small in number. We currently have around 7.8 BILLION people living on the earth right now.
MANY (most, majority, nearly all) do NOT have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Including those who profess to be “born again”.
How do I have the audacity to say such a thing?
Because I am not speaking in my own authority. I am saying what the Word teaches. People, particularly all people alive in this generation, have learned HOW to manipulate words and meanings to be exclusive to themselves and the crowd they run with.
We have decided for ourselves what the Scriptures say and teach, rather than let It speak for Itself. Reason being, very FEW will actually STUDY. By study, I mean read in context, study the words out in Hebrew and in Greek. Pray for true discernment and understanding, even if the understanding is contrary to what you’ve been taught and told your whole life. Make sure everything is lining up with the Torah given in the first five books of the Bible to be the Standard by which all things are to be measured.
Contrary to what people want to believe, MOST people are simply not going to make it into the Kingdom.
And MOST people cannot deal with that, so they find or invent ways to circumvent what the Scriptures actually teach.
They begin to call evil good, and good evil. THEY decide what good is, and what evil is. Most cannot handle the idea that the enormous sheer numbers of humanity getting into the Kingdom is not the goal.
“And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto Him, ‘Lord, are there few that be saved?’ And He said unto them, “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.’ ” Luke 13:22-24
YaHuWaH only wants those who want Him and His ways in His Kingdom, though the invitation goes out to all.
And THAT is determined in the here and now of our existence in these bodies, on His terms, not ours.
Let’s go back to this business of MANY who profess to have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life not being in there…how is it you can say such a thing?
Here (though the example and pattern is throughout the entire Bible):
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ ” Matthew 7:21-23
So what is the WILL OF THE FATHER that we must be DOING?
Again, we do NOT get to define that for ourselves. We dare not. Allow the Scriptures to tell us: “I delight to do Your will, O my Elohim: yea, your law (Torah) is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8
If His law is in your heart, then you are to DO it. Not ignore it, or make excuses not to.
The most current statistic of people claiming to be Christians is 2.3 BILLION, that is very close to 1/3 of the world population.
These are people who call Him, “Lord”. The MANY (most, majority, nearly all) DO NOT walk in obedience to the commandments AS He walked.
Look here what it says in 1 John 2:3-7:
“And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps His word, in him truly the love of Elohim is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked. Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment,
but an old commandment that you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word that you have heard.”
Again, MANY (most, majority, nearly all) of those professing to be “born again Christians” DO NOT live their lives walking in obedience to the Torah (law) of YaHuWaH Elohim. They’ve been taught a false gospel for centuries now, and a false concept of Messiah (nature, character, message and mission). Rather, they live their lives in false definitions of what evil is, good is, what darkness is, what light is, etc…
They live according to a FALSE DEFINITION and APPLICATION of what “grace” is. They have all the semblance (form) of godliness (holiness), but deny (reject) the power (legal claim) thereof. (2 Tim 3:5)
Greek word “dynamis”: strength, ability, resources.
From the root word: “dynamai”: to have power/permission by and of law.
Know what you are reading. Quit thinking we can define things of this importance for ourselves. I feel absolutely compelled to write and post this. MANY are on a disaster course, but think they are on their way to heaven.
They do NOT know the days and times they are living in. They have been woefully diverted, and with a plethora of wolves in sheep’s clothing and deceived hirelings telling them their souls are saved when they are not. Is ANYONE out there hearing this???
For anyone wondering, “what must I do to be SAVED?” Enter into covenant with YaHuWaH Elohim through Messiah Yahusha by praying to Him and asking for His forgiveness of sin. [Sin is transgression of the law (Torah). 1 John 3:4]
True repentance (teshuvah) is about TURNING AWAY from sin, and TURNING TO YaHuWaH/Yahusha and His ways. This is not about being a Christian, and it is not about being in Judaism. You are neither. You are being grafted-in to Yisra’El.
Begin to learn His ways (commandments) by studying His Torah and applying it daily in your life as you learn, as much as is possible since we are not in the land and are dispersed. As you do this, you will unlearn the lies and deceptions, and you will learn His ways.
Do not be worried of not knowing everything right up front. You will have to learn and grow as a baby does.
Try to find other believers (social media is great for this) to help you on your way and to fellowship with.
Know that this way is narrow, and very few find it much less walk in it.
You will have opposition (understatement) as you will be living and walking in a way contrary to Church and societal ways. Toughen up, be firm and resolute, and know that the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) is with you to teach you, strengthen and comfort you. This is not a once-saved-always-saved deal, you have walk this path as in a marathon and cross the finish line.
Read the parable of the sower to understand this better (Matthew 13:1-23).
Thank you Evette Clark, you are a gem, and we are baruked to have you as a friend.
