Faith: What You Believe is Important

by John Greene

Bible knowledgeWhat do you believe? Believing in facts is often paraded in the world around us on the assumption that we see is what is real. In much the same way tradition, fables and legends are championed. Scripture champions something else: the righteousness of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH]. This righteousness is what sets disciples apart from the world, a world full of sin and deception. You are the one that decides what to listen to. But how do you decide? You build your trust, your discernment based on belief through knowledge and Spirit. In this way you will:

“…no longer be children, tossed and borne about by every wind of teaching, by the trickery of men, in cleverness, unto the craftiness of leading astray” – Ephesians 4:14, ISR98

“Beloved, do not believe every ruach [spirit], but discern between the ruachs, whether they are from Elohim. Because many false prophets comes forward to the world. By this One you know the Ruach of Elohim. Every ruach that agrees with the living appearance of Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah is from Elohim. Then, every ruach that does not agree with the living appearance of Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah is not from Elohim. This then is the antimessiah [antichrist] that you heard will make an appearance, and at the present time, is already in the world.” – 1 John 4:1-3, P4T

dusty-bible-read-meEvery Christian is in the position of guarding his or her own heart through accurate belief in scripture and the counsel of the Set Apart Ruach [Dedicated, ‘Holy Spirit’]. Each of us is able to be actively involved in learning the Way. Many translations of the Bible simply tell us about confessing ‘Jesus Christ’ as a requirement for truth. Many evangelists and teachers use 1 John 4:2 as the pet scripture for their legitimacy, regardless of what they say. However, this idea of simply invoking the name of ‘Christ’ couldn’t be more deceptive. The original word used in ancient Greek is ‘erchomai’ – which points squarely at ‘agreement with.’ This is agreement with Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah and nobody else! Nobody is to supplant or substitute the Word of Yahshua [Jesus] as an antimessiah [antichrist], but to be in agreement with the righteousness of the Word of truth that Yahshua [Jesus] presented and exemplified as our Savior. (“Understanding Sin“; “Discernment: Having an Ear to Deeper Understanding“; “Being Renewed: Putting Down Deception“)

“You are from Elohim beloved children, and conquered them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world. Because of this speaking from the world, then the world understands them. We are from Elohim. One knowing Elohim understands us. One that is not of Elohim does not understand us. From this we know the ruach of truth and ruach of delusion.” – 1 John 4:4-6, P4T

Set Apart RuachInstead of selling out to the world, each disciple of the Messiah is to actively continue in truth, guarding his or her heart. By refusing to be persuaded and seduced by false teachers, the assembly of disciples overcome Satan and his agents one at a time. These seducers are unable to have their way with those firmly anchored in the Way of Yahshua [Jesus]. They are unable to trick others into following false teaching after themselves. These seducers are of Satan, but the presence of Elohim’s Spirit in the hearts of each disciple is greater than Satan, his agents and their teachings. (2 Corinthians 10:5, 11:3-14; Galatians 1:6-9; 2 Timothy 3:1-8, 4:2-4; 2 Peter 2:2-22; Jude 1:10-19; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Disciples: His Showbread Walking Out His Righteousness“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
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 righteousness. 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]. May it be as you have promised!
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 name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
