HUNGER AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
BE READY, HUNGER AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
1 Samuel_15:22 And Samuel said, Hath YaHVaH as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of YaHVaH? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Matthew 5:48 “Become PERFECT as your heavenly Father is PERFECT”.
Deuteronomy_30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Josh_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve YaHVaH, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve YaHVaH.
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if YaHVaH be Elohim, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Ki 18:37 Hear me, O YaHVaH, hear me, that this people may know that thou art YaHVaH Elohim, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
Exodus 32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on YaHVaH'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
:34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.
:35 And YaHVaH plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
Act 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey Elohim rather than men.
The Elohim of our fathers raised up YaHOSHA, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
Him hath Elohim exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Pure Spirit/Holy Ghost, whom Elohim hath given to them that obey him.
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Messenger before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in Him.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord/Master/YaHVaH, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Build Your House on the Rock
Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
RESURRECTION LIFE IN MESSIAH:
Isa 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
Hos 6:1 Come, and let us return unto YaHVaH: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
HoseYaH 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Hos 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know YaHVaH: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
2 Cor 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What is sin? 1 John 3:4 Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the Torah: for sin IS the transgression of the Torah. See 5:17 “All unrighteousness is sin; and there is a sin not unto death. We know that whosoever is born of Yah sinneth not; but he that is begotten of Yah keeps himself and that wicked one touches him not.”
The Wages of Sin is death. The rewards of heaven are Eternal Life. Romans 6:23
Matthew 16:26 is a famous quotation: What does it profit a man if he were to gain the WHOLE WORLD and lose his soul?
How do we show our love (to Him)? 1 John 5:2-3
But, we are not “under the law”. Plus, the law was done away with?
Messiah said in the book of John: “Keep My Commandments” (including the ones He first gave to Moses).
But Paul said: Romans 7:6 “We are delivered from the law.” (Of sin’s physical death penalty nor the temple sacrificial animal laws.)
Romans 6:6 “..henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is FREED from sin.
7:12 The law is holy (pure) and the commandment pure, and just and good.
14: “For we know that the law is spiritual…”
:22 For I delight in the Torah of YaHVaH after the Inward man!
:25 “..I myself serve the Torah of YaHVaH.”
Because the carnal mind is enmity against The Sovereign One: for it is not subject to the law of The Sovereign One, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please The Sovereign One. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of The Sovereign One dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of YaHOSHA, he is none of his.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of The Sovereign One, they are the sons of The Sovereign One. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear..
2 Corinthians 4:17-18
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10Always bearing about in the body the dying of YaHVaH YaHOSHA, that the life also of YaHOSHA might be made manifest in our body.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
ISAIYAH 55:6-7 Seek YaHVaH while He may be found and….
6 Seek ye YaHVaH while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto YaHVaH, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our Sovereign One, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith YaHVaH. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
THE LAST DAY
John_6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John_6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
NAME ABOVE ALL
YeshaYahu (IsaiYah) 64:7 'And there is none that calleth upon Thy Name, that stirreth-up himself to take hold of Thee..' Previously, the prophet stated in 63:16 'Doubtless Thou art our Father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Yisraeyl acknowledge us not: Thou, O YaHVaH (not l-o-r-d) art our Father, our Redeemer; Thy Name is from everlasting".
A believer might open a discussion to encourage someone with, "Messiah's Name is of utmost important. We now know what His Name is not.
Here is the response of: "It doesn't matter."
Acts 3-5 and Acts 4:12 "There is no other Name given among men whereby we must be saved!" YaHVaH the Father says, "It DOES matter".
Whether we quote the Scriptures about Torah, the law, the Feast Days, Clean and Unclean, pagan holidays and above all, His Name, YaHVaH and YaHOSHA Messiah, we show love to the Father and our friends.
2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of YaH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
3:17 That the man of YaH may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR YaHVaH and keep His commandments: for this is the whole of man. For YHVH shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
Rev_21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
We believe in:
Infallibility and authority of the Scriptures (called the Bible) which is the Word of Yahvah John 1 “In the beginning was the WORD”.
Next is with as much import is PASSOVER AND RESURRECTION. (Ex 12). Passover is always the 14th, Resurrection is always the 17th (Matthew 12:40; 28:1).
In strong contrast the idea that the death of Messiah was not Aviv (Nisan) 14, but it was a day of the week (commonly called ‘holy Thursday) is in gross error. It is always on Passover, Aviv 14 “At the end of the day, before the High Day of Unleavened Bread”.
The Resurrection of Messiah is always on Aviv 17 (not on any certain day of the week). Question: When did your Father die, a Sunday or Thursday? The Risen Messiah is coming soon. Make sure your garments are spotless before the Day of YaHVaH.
LOVE AND HATE
PSALM_139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Rom_9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Malachi 1:1-5 Esau have I hated.
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVaH thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of YaHVaH thy Elohim in vain; for YaHVaH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it pure.
Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of YaHVaH thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11 For in six days YaHVaH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YaHVaH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
A Common Saying: “My parents made me go to Church so now I don’t have to.’
Compare with: “My parents made me go to Ballgames, so now I don’t go. There’s too many hypocrites there. I don’t like the music they play. I don’t like the way the pitcher combs his hair and how he talks. Hypocrite!
Hunger aftger righteousness and attend the assembly of YaHVaH's choice.
