Redeemed Through Obedience & Trust

by John and Ruth Greeneoil lamp Mark 13

“But concerning that day and the hour no one knows, not even the messengers in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray, for you do not know when the time is – as a man going abroad, having left his house and given authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming – in the evening or at midnight, or at the crowing of the cock, or in the morning, lest, coming suddenly, he should find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” – Mark 13:32-37, ISR98

bible-studyAll through the Word, Yahshua [Jesus] teaches the disciple what he or she should do. Be about His business! Idle speculation and ‘prophesying’ beyond what Bible truth says is of little value apart from the Bible. Until the Messiah returns, sanctified disciples of the Messiah have a job to do. (Matthew 28:19-20) The world is full of people as never before and a new age of information has made the world ‘smaller’ than ever before. It has also made homogenized deception rampant around the world. (“Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“; “Disciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“)

preacherPastors all over the world (not all of them, a lot of them) don’t declare the Word of YHWH, but mouth about rules and regulations of the flesh, denominational traditions or the order of men, or ‘hooping’ about little or nothing as the crowd hollers, totters and waves. Women may scream, holler and fall to the floor in the hope of being carried out by male ushers. The pastors and their crew have made themselves their own authority and created their own form of religion. They’ve built a fan club and a circus that Father YHWH didn’t create. Many others accept only the authority of the world as their mouthpiece. They deny the work and power of the Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit] for a ‘safer’ message. They respect the world and their own power more than YHWH, the One they claim to serve. They are idolaters, something that all Christians are involved with when they are following the pattern of the world. (“Video: What is Idolatry?“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “Listening and Doing as a Disciple“)

“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” – Ephesians 1:13-14, NKJV

foundation-of-faith-300Believers have been redeemed by the Messiah through active belief through trust, living out their obedience as spiritual fruit, despite inherited imperfection. Perfection isn’t required. Your Messiah took care of that! The Spirit of YHWH is with those that are willing to receive Him through active belief and trust. He is your Promise, the One that you can believe, no matter what the world says. He is “far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.”  – Ephesians 1:21, NKJV

“And YAHWEH had said to Abram, ‘Go out from your land and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you.’” – Genesis 12:1, HRB

Just as your early spiritual forefather listened to the Almighty, so He desires that you do the same. He asks you to get out of your comfort zone and to serve Him in a mighty way. Abraham was not a perfect man either. His name professed a man of many nations and yet he was childless, a laughingstock to the pagan nations. He was willing to wait for an heir, to serve the YHWH of Hosts until He provided His promise. His wife, Sarah was not. She no longer believed the promise of YHWH. (Genesis 18:9-15) In the end, Abraham listened to Sarah and created a counterfeit nation through his own judgment, willing to give in the will of his wife to keep the peace. Remember that your circumstances are not based on what you see, but on the promise of YHWH alone. (“Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “Disciple: Your Basis of Trust“; “Abiding in Trust“; “Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“)

“For I have known him, so that whatever he may command his sons and his house after him, even they may keep the way of YAHWEH, to do righteousness and justice; to the intent that YAHWEH may bring on Abraham that which He has spoken of him.” – Genesis 18:19, HRB

Abraham was the spiritual father of his family, a spiritual leader. Each family head is to be the spiritual head like Abraham. Just as Father YHWH knew Abraham, He knows you…and your human foibles. Abraham was afraid of authority and the lust of others for his wife, and through his attitude created his own trouble. (Genesis 20) Your own misjudgments and weaknesses could cause you to have lapses as well, even to lie and falter in your integrity. (“Prospering Your Family“; “Family vs. Government: The Disagreement About Parenting“; “Approved: Lie Cheat & Steal“; “Culture: Prompting Falsehood Through the Lie“)

'Moral principles' highlighted in green, under the heading 'Ethics'The world around you judges as it does, in its own way, according to a kingdom separated from YHWH. You may be afraid, even having a certain amount of reasonable anticipation of evil actions on the part of others. However, the world around you doesn’t relieve you from being answerable to YHWH as a spiritual leader to your family, or giving a testimony to others that sorely need your help through the Holy Spirit. In fact, when you stay in YHWH’s purpose, you will receive His protection, one way or the other. The circumstances in your life, even your life, are less important than your trust and obedience to Him. Where you actually place you trust indicates where you place your faith, your belief. (Matthew 5:48; 1 Peter 5:10; 1 Corinthians 10:6; Ephesians 4:11-13, 5:25-27; “What Is Washing By The Word?“; “Breaking the Strongholds of Egypt and Canaan in Your Heart“)

When you operate in YHWH’s Will, you are important! When you firmly champion the cause of Yahshua [Jesus] the Master, you are vital! When you obey Elohim and operate in the power of the Holy Spirit, you create change in hearts, even when you don’t see it yourself. You are a witness into eternity as well, despite your imperfection, because your Messiah literally completes you, completing you before YHWH. Remember that a human illusion of perfection isn’t required, regardless of what the accusers around you may say. Trust in YHWH is required. Your life and mindset evidences the trust you place in Him. When push comes to shove, that is all you need to care about. (“Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “The Beginning of Life Renewal“; “Breakthrough Prayer: Driven Behavior & Perfectionism“; “The Kingdom of YHWH and the Drive for Self-Importance“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
