Question. YH’shua (YH’s salvation) proved to walk and talk in the Father’s Will (Word and Works), indeed he proved to be worthy, this in obedience to the Father’s Word (included the Prophets before him). Should we have to prove to be worthy also? or does his sacrifice (stripes) mean we do not have to do anything but accept YH’shua as our savior – as if our salvation is guaranteed by his shed blood?: A message we must meditate on. Now, let’s see what one of the first apostles of YH’shua says on the matter.
King James Version (KJV)
“5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness (Elohim – like qualities, “to manifest Greatness or Majesty as YHWH Elohim does); 7 And to godliness (Elohim-like qualities) brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity (also called love). 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord (Master) Jesus (YH’shua) Christ (The Anointed One).”
Peter’s thought continues with?
“9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten (to not mind or do YH’shua’s ways) that he was purged from his old sins.”
YH’shua said this and more on the matter of salvation, John 14:12 (KJV)
“12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Over and over again we learn that faith without works is the equivalent of nothing, for what good is good if it is not acted upon 🙂 Let’s make it happen, Abba YH wants it that way 🙂 Thank you for the capacities you have given us, that we too may prove to be your hands and breath… Amein, Amein 🙂 We love you Abba YH!!!!!
