Genesis 44:18 - 47:27
Are YOU drawing Near to the King?
Yeshua tells us how‼
Matthew 7:13-14 "Go in through the narrow gate; for the gate that leads to destruction is wide and the road broad, and many travel it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard narrow pathway that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
Matthew 7:15-21 "Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every healthy tree produces good fruit, but a poor tree produces bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire! So you will recognize them by their fruit.”
"Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants.”
James 1:22 Don't deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, BUT DO IT‼
Matthew 7:22 On that Day, many will say to me, `Lord, Lord! Didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we expel demons in your name? Didn't we perform many miracles in your name?' Then I will tell them to their faces, `I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness, anomia!'
Matthew 7:24 "So, everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on bedrock. The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the winds blew and beat against that house, but it didn't collapse, because its foundation was on rock.
Matthew 7:26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the wind blew and beat against that house, and it collapsed -- and its collapse was horrendous!“
One of the Biggest heresies “I asked Jesus to come into my Heart”, you won’t find those words in the Bible.
But we walk like the World, dress like the world & act like the world. Because…
We LOVE THE WORLD.
But you may say, “I’m no different than the rest of Christianity.”
Stop comparing yourself to others who call themselves Christians,
And Compare yourself to Yeshua‼
What does the Word say?? Examine yourself.
1 John 2:4 Anyone who says, "I know him," but isn't obeying his commands is a liar - the truth is not in him.
2 Chronicles 7:14 then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, …
Notice! NOT A PERIOD, BUT A COMMA,
We have allowed heresy to prevail, “Just Give your heart to the LORD”
BUT Yeshua said…
Matthew 4:17 From that time יהושע began to proclaim and to say, “Repent, for the reign of the heavens has drawn near, or is at hand.” or HERE RIGHT NOW!!
The TWELVE Disciples, Mark 6:12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
(Let’s Read the rest of the Story) II Chronicles 7:14 …seek my face and turn (teshuvah) from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.
You REPENTED, TESHUVAH OF YOUR PATHWAYS, YOUR LIFESTYLE AND TURNED FROM YOUR WAYS, AND TOOK ON HIS NATURE.
“Repent” Hebrew; H7725, שׁוּב shûb, BDB Definition:
to return, turn back (from your acts of sin)
to turn back, return (to the ways of Yah)
to return, come or go back
Greek; G3340, metanoeō, to think differently, change one’s thinking back to God.
1 John 2:6 The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked.
It is not, “Oh, I am sorry” & then go on your way, not turning from your ways to His Way.
You were saved not by a magic church ritual or magic formula, but by
“TURNING FROM YOUR WAYS”!
YOU BELIEVED & TRUSTED THE WAY.
ARE YOU CONTINUING TO WALK AND RETURN??
Not only THE GATE IS NARROW, but so is the PATHWAY!
Conversion is not like an antibiotic pill or flu shot.
Romans 2:13 For it is not merely the hearers of Torah whom God considers righteous; rather, it is the DOERS of what Torah says who will be made righteous in God's sight.
Acts 16:30 And having led them outside he said, “Masters, what do I have to do to be saved?”
Acts 16:31 And they said, “Believe G4100 on the Master יהושע Messiah, and you shall be saved, you and your household.”
What does BELIEVE really mean??
G4100, pisteuō, From G4102; to have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing, EMUNAH), (especially one’s spiritual well being to Christ): - believe (-r), commit (to trust), put in trust with.
But there is more, from Greek to Hebrew; SHEMA, H8085: שׁמע to hear, listen to, and OBEY (verb)
He said “Depart from me, I never knew you…”
“you workers of “ANOMIA”’
Yah gave us guidelines, principles, covenants, called the “LOVING TEACHING AND INSTRUCTIONS OF Yahweh, TORAH‼
Joh 15:10 “If you guard My commands, you shall stay in My love, even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay in His love.
IF you turn back to the World, act like, dress like, become like the World,
YOU ARE IN GRAVE DANGER!!
Then you should examine yourself.
If want you to LIVE, I mean Live for Yeshua.
Then “do what my Father in heaven wants!!”
