5.1. Know the Way
Seven markers specified to clearly distinguish the True Way to Eternal Life from the parallel-running counterfeit Way to eternal doom on which the masses find themselves, according to the Bible.
Since the earliest times, and increasingly so today, the Bible is being used by millions of people throughout the world as the “Road Map” or “Direction Pointer” to the True Eternal Way. The extent of the Bible’s influence and effect on mankind is immeasurably great and intense when taking in account how many people are paging through the Bible daily: searching souls, believers, students from all walks of life: Jews, Christians, and many other religions; how many sermons and lectures are broadcast on radio and television daily; the immeasurable quantity of literature distributed and passed on continually. Add to this the powerful international boost it nowadays receives on the Internet and other computer study programs – how many hear and accept its Message, how many reject and oppose it … especially when measured through all the ages past, and it certainly becomes overwhelming No other book could possibly equal the Bible in its influence and effect on mankind throughout the ages.
The Bible is not only the “Road Map” that indicates the True Way to the Kingdom of God, but, just as any other map, it also indicates the alternative and devious routes to eternal Doom and Destruction. It also gives clear warnings regarding the dangers on these alternative routes and detours. It specifically warns against an alternative “Highway”, supposedly leading to the “Eternal City of Peace” (Jerusalem), but which will eventually end up in the “wilderness” in distress and perdition.
This booklet is intended to serve as a guide to the Right Way while also defining the Wrong ways. It will be useful not only to the searching new pilgrim, but also for many who have been on the Way for some time already. To some readers, it will bring confirmation and great joy, while to others it will be a source for deep reflection or may bring great dismay and receive their condemnation.
It is amazing how few “travellers” en route to the “Eternal City of Peace – Jerusalem”, ever take the trouble to consult their “Road Map”. Most travellers seem to depend entirely on the “Tour Guides” best known to them (i.e. preachers, teachers, institutions, traditions, interpretations, etc.) without any attempt to confirm the Way for themselves. After all, these guides normally come through colleges and universities and have proven themselves in many ways along the way in the past.
Even a superficial reference to the “Road Map” in our possession (the Bible), should be sufficient to ensure us that we are on the right way to the Eternal Jerusalem or not. Many confirmations could also be obtained by observing the many road signs along the way – whether these signs point to the traditions of Babylon rather than the traditions of Israel; whether the surroundings depict a Hebrew or a Babylonian (pagan influenced) lifestyle. The sincere inquirer may find a total disregard and ignorance of true Bible teaching amongst the “local inhabitants” (fellow believers) around them, and a preference for the ancient pagan Babylonian traditions, teachings and practices. Regular study of the Bible will expose error and confirm if one should happen to actually be “in Babylon or in Israel”. Normally (and tragically so), many believers may be offended when confronted with these challenges, and may even deny it, or justify themselves. Many others may be content to simply move along on their way to a fantasy land of their imagination.
However, for those to whom it is important to be on the Right Way, may we plainly confirm: The Bible is absolutely clear – from the first to the last verse – that there is only ONE TRUE WAY, i.e. one true Almighty Creator, one true universal Faith, one true theology, one divine system, one Divine Law, one ultimate universal government under the authority of one Ruler having one Name and ruling from one capital – Jerusalem. (Bible references too numerous to list – please read the Bible and confirm for yourself).
Ephesians 4:4 puts it this way: “There is one Body, one Spirit, just as you were all called into one and the same Hope … There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism and one God Who is Father of all, through all and within all.”
This certainly confirms that there is only one universal Faith for all nations.
If the Bible so clearly and seriously points to one true Way, why then are there so many widely differing religions in the world today? The Bible’s “Road Map” gives a clear answer to this question and confirms that there are many ways that may seem right to us, but which end in eternal damnation. It teaches the following:
|THE RIGHT WAY||THE WRONG WAY|
|The way to Eternal Life||The way to eternal destruction|
|The Narrow Way||The broad way|
|The Way of the Bible||The way of man-made tradition|
|The Hebrew Way||The pagan way|
|The Way to Jerusalem||The way to Babylon|
The question now arises: Which Way will it be, of all the different Ways proclaimed by all the varying branches of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and all the other religions? According to Ephesians 4:4, only one of these can be correct! (Each and every group, of course, believes that only they are correct!) Modern thinking though, promotes the accommodation of all opposing thoughts and attitudes concerning controversial matters. “Everyone has a right to their own views”, they maintain, and “one should not be dogmatic and should not impose your ideas on others.” There is a great danger though, that the way in which this interpretation is presented and accepted by most of its adherents, could lead to a nullifying and ridiculing of the positive statements of the Bible, regarding the vital importance of finding and abiding by the one True Way only.
The fact that the Almighty, the extremely tolerant and merciful Creator and Saviour, is in total control over all (and if you doubt this statement, be sure to read JERUSALEM- FINAL COUNTDOWN), tells us that He gradually leads each and every one of us to spiritual maturity. This, in turn, will eventually develop into the ONE TRUE FAITH or SYSTEM. These Divine characteristics of total Patience, Mercy and Maturity, is clearly displayed in His relationship with His people Israel. In fact, it is in this exclusive way that He will prove His integrity at the end of this dispensation, i.e. that He never rejected His People totally and completely, in spite of all their failures (READ: Ezekiel 20 and Romans 11). Why would He then deal differently with any other nation or individual who depends on Him?
The underlying principle of the True Way, which we will discover in this study, is that the Almighty is faithful and true to His Word and Promises; that He has only ONE System and Truth; that He chose to use the nation of Israel and to this day He is still using them to demonstrate His System to all the nations of this world (Romans 3:2); that He never rejected His chosen people forever (just as He has no pleasure in rejecting any individual forever); that He cares for all human beings (i.e. all nations) in exactly the same way, wishing to lead all to His eternal Kingdom of Peace. This divine predetermined goal will materialise as surely as the sun will rise tomorrow. (The Scriptural confirmation for these principles of Divine Patience and Guidance of all mankind forms the subject of an independent study).
If we would regard our spiritual ‘opponents’ in the same spirit, and exercise an attitude of love and patience (as even the Creator has to do with the entire human race), life would be much better for all of us, and we would mature spiritually far sooner.
The Bible is also very clear and emphatic, contrary to what most would want to believe, that not all people of all different religions will comply for the Kingdom of YHVH, and that ultimate doom awaits masses of people. Judgment, however, belongs to the Almighty and we may not even condemn Satan, never mind fellow human beings (Jude 5 – 9. READ !). Our duty simply amounts to proclaiming the instructions contained in the Bible towards finding the Right Way and to encourage one another therein.
Another important fact to note is that the Almighty Creator is by no means inconsistent or unstable. He maintains and emphasises ONE System only – and whoever desires to belong to His Kingdom, should of necessity be subjected to this System.
On the other hand, there is Satan the accuser, destroyer, and father of Lies, who distracts us by having his own deceiving “road signs” planted alongside the Eternal Way. Satan’s purpose is to deceive and lure the less observant and half-hearted pilgrim onto his deceiving way to eventual sorrow and doom.
To assist the reader in finding and staying on the Only True Way, it becomes necessary to acquaint oneself with the existence and features of the ‘other way’, the ‘other faith’, the ‘other body’, ‘other spirit’, ‘other lord’, ‘other baptism’, ‘other father’ – all being misleading road signs to the other destination of eventual eternal death
1. ONE BODY
Let us now investigate the aspect of ONE BODY, referred to in Ephesians ch. 4.
As in any other organization, followers of the Creator and Saviour form the “members” of the “Body” of the Almighty, through which He pursues and achieves His purposes for humanity at large.
In earlier times, this body of Believers consisted of individuals such as Enoch, Noah, Abraham-, often including their families as well as their servants.
Genesis 12 relates how the Almighty chose an ordinary man named Abraham – out of all humanity and entered into a Divine Covenant with him. Abraham was chosen because he maintained his lifestyle in accordance with the Way of the Almighty. Glorious promises of Divine blessings and protection is given to Abraham and his descendants. His descendants, according to this Divine Promise, would make up a multitude of nations; a Body of followers with whom the Almighty would conclude a Covenant – to be their God, as they would be His people. These Covenant people would serve as evidence to the rest of humanity, of His supremacy, integrity, and faithfulness (READ Ezekiel 20).
The descendants of Abraham became the “Hebrews” or “Israel”, who, according to the Divine Promise, were entitled to the rights and privileges of the Divine Covenant. They would make up His personal organized group or “Body” of “chosen” people. Anyone was welcome to join this Body of chosen people on the condition that they accept and live according to the rules and requirements of the Covenant. Many reports are recorded in the Bible of so-called “strangers” who voluntarily joined themselves to this body of Chosen People, e.g.: Ruth (of whom the famous king David was a descendant – in whose lineage the Messiah would be born), and many Egyptians who left Egypt with Israel during the great Exodus (Exodus 12:38).
The Almighty made it quite clear to Abraham, that His Covenant was not being concluded with the descendants of his eldest son, Ishmael (the predecessor of the Arab nations), but rather with his Divinely “promised” and second son, Isaac (the predecessor of the 12 Tribes of Israel). Hence the Arabs, like any other nation, cannot be a part of this ‘chosen’ people, unless they subject themselves voluntarily to the conditions of the Divine Covenant.
At first sight, this may be interpreted as gross discrimination against the ‘other’ nations. Closer consideration and contemplation though will reveal God’s universal accommodation of all nations, depicted by this very ‘switching’ by Him of the right of the firstborn, to the second. This Divine act depicted that the Promised eternal Blessings were not simply available as “a birthright”, but were there for voluntary acceptance by those who do not qualify ‘by birth’ .
Please note that it is certainly not the purpose of this booklet to discriminate against, nor to condemn any individual, nation, or organization, – just as we believe it also is not the purpose of our Almighty Creator and King to do.
The sole purpose of this study is to point out to the reader that the Creator has a specific plan as well as specified conditions which He requires His people to adhere to – just as any loving, caring, knowledgeable, father (desiring only the best for his children) would do. Just as any king or leader would require from their followers. Just as any country in the world has its strict immigration and customs requirements. Why should the Divine Ruler and Kingdom be different? The Divine System, consisting of precepts, ordinances, and judgments of the Divine Law, is divinely purposed to bring prosperity, welfare, peace and happiness for human beings. Non-conformance to the Divine Covenant, brings about ill-fortune, sorrow and suffering.
And, most importantly, He has conditions which He requires just as any husband would require from his faithful and loving bride – more so in this instance as His Redemption Plan includes receiving back the Bride whom He rejected when He sent her into exile because of her failures to serve Him faithfully in the Land of Israel. Ref. Restoration of the Kingdom to Israel.
The sole purpose of having chosen a specific group of people, the Israelites, from all humanity, is simply to demonstrate to the rest of humanity (as well as to Israel itself), the Purpose, and Consequences of His System, that is, what the disastrous results of disobedience would be as opposed to the Blessings resulting from obedience. Therefore, we conclude that the theme of this whole issue is centered around the Divine System or Law rather than around a “chosen” or “specially privileged people”. (This is confirmed by the fact that He chose a non-Israelite, Abraham, who, out of own choice, actually lived according to His Divine System or Law).
The misunderstanding or ignorance by Gentiles of this underlying purpose of the Almighty, has, throughout the centuries, lead to jealousy, envy and hatred of Jews, as well as rejection by these people, of the Almighty Creator Himself. Some even go to the extreme of describing the Almighty and Moses as “Führer” type dictators who enslave the Jewish people with burdensome laws in an attempt to keep the nation ‘pure’ and to establish a dictatorial world government. Although a centuries-old theory, it is still very prevalent, even amongst sincere religious believers, and known as the “Illuminati” theory. Because of ignorance of the Bible, many unsuspecting souls have been convinced by the apparent valid reasoning of this theory.
As a sobering consideration, we recommend that the reader firstly be convinced of the existence of the Eternal Almighty Creator. If He does exist, then surely He should have a System and expectancies of His followers? The System which He entrusted to Israel and the Jews with such great circumspection, should then surely be the One required System for all His professing followers? It should thus be abundantly clear why His choosing of the nation of Israel and Judah, to whom He entrusted His Law, inspires the evil forces to destroy this “chosen” nation, in order to prevent the Almighty from obtaining His ultimate goal of the restoration of His people. We should now also understand the true reason behind the current struggle of the Arabs and other nations, to prevent the re-establishment and extension of the independent state of Israel.
We are witnessing today the fulfilment of many an “Old Testament” prophecy regarding the physical restoration of the Land of Israel, in preparation and anticipation of the return of the Almighty, and the establishment of His Eternal Kingdom in Israel, in which all His victorious followers of all nations will participate. This is what Satan attempts to avoid at all costs!
The history of Israel throughout the ages, serving as an example to the rest of the human race, is filled with sadness, bitterness, and suffering, as well as amazing progress in all walks of life, in spite of the terrible adversity. The System of the Almighty, however, is accessible to all who will accept it and who wish to prosper both spiritually and physically. By His sacrificial death, the Messiah has, in fact, abolished the enmity between Jew and non-Jew, in order to reconcile the two, uniting them into ONE BODY (Ephesians 14:15 and 2:16).
In the New Testament times and in our current dispensation, we see both the Body of the physical descendants of ancient Israel, as well as the spiritual recreated Body of believers in the Messiah YAHU’SHUAH (referred to in the Bible as the “rebuilding of the broken-down Tabernacle of David”). This does not imply the simultaneous existence of two separate bodies but rather proves how these two parts form the ONE BODY.
Ephesians 2:12-16, “But now in Messiah, you (gentiles) that used to be so far from us (the Jews) have been brought very close. Because He has made the two into ONE and broken down the barrier which used to keep them apart, actual destroying in His own Person the hostility caused by the rules and decrees of the Law. This was to create one single New Man in Himself out of the two and, by restoring Peace through the Cross, to unite them both in a single Body … in His own Person, He killed the hostility …” (which exists between non-Jew and Jew and which is caused by their Laws). According to Ephesians 2:19 – 22, the Gentiles (who accept the Messiah and His Way, of course) are now “fellow citizens” of Israel and of the Household (or Body) of the Almighty.
Notably interesting is the fact that the “spiritual” part of the BODY (primarily Christianity) is commonly and largely estranged and even hostile toward the “physical” part of the BODY (Israel – mainly the Jews). This fact ought to provoke serious concern as well as thorough research and in-depth study of the Bible by those who sincerely strive to find and walk the True Way.
The Messiah is the ‘Head’ of this Body. The rest of the Body, consisting of a wide variety of congregations, groups, sects, and individuals, is continually moulded and grown into an eventual spiritually mature Body, according to the full requirements of His Plan. This process is prophetically referred to in the Bible as “the Restoration of the broken-down Tabernacle of David”.
It should therefore be obvious and logic, that the same Law which applies to “physical” Israel, also should apply to “spiritual” Israel, since the two should eventually be perfected in Messiah in one complete Body, The Almighty is by no means divided. Scripture points out that a divided house or body cannot possibly survive for long.
It is also clear that the Creator is dealing with humanity on two different levels of preparation: Firstly, through the physical part of His Body, which is His “chosen” people Israel; and secondly through the redeemed, spiritual part of His Body from every other nation. It is the one underlying Law or System alone, which is able to unite the divided Body. Any alternative or opposing system can have no unifying or restoration effect.
Whoever will follow the True Way, should thus of necessity have to accept and subject themselves to the System of the Almighty, as revealed to the nation of Israel. Similarly, Abraham, a lone Gentile, was credited and accepted by YHVH for his faith in, and practising of, this same System. Genesis 18:19: “For (the Almighty) has singled out Abraham to command his sons and his household after him, to maintain the Way of YHVH by just and upright living.”
“Just and upright living” is defined in Deuteronomy 6:20 – 25: “In times to come, when your sons ask you: ‘What is the meaning of the Decrees and Laws and Customs that YHVH our God has laid down for you?’, you shall tell your son … ‘YHVH commanded us to observe all these laws and to fear YHVH our God so as to be happy forever and to live … For us, right living will mean this: To keep and observe all these Commandments before YHVH our God, as He has directed us.”
Does the way on which you currently find yourself, demand your subjection to the Law of YHVH? Or have you been taught that His LAW has been abolished? Please consult your “Road Map” prayerfully, seriously, carefully, and thoroughly for yourself, and consider especially how the Body that you currently belong to, should be part of the one united Body of Believers, which, according to the clear Instruction of the Almighty through His Word, should also be a Law-abiding Unit.
In Genesis 48:19, in a finer detailed Covenant Promise to the Body, Ephraim, the son of Jacob, who was the patriarch of the 12 Tribes of Israel, is divinely promised that out of him, a “multitude of nations” would originate. Bible history subsequently confirms that the 10 Northern Tribes of Israel (as opposed to the 2 Southern Tribes, which later became known as the Jews), issued forth from the descendants of Ephraim. After the fall of Samaria (capital city of the Northern 10 Tribes) in 721 BCE, these 10 Tribes were deported as slaves to Babylon, under the rule of King Nebuchadnezzar. From here, they were dispersed among the nations – and today they are referred to as “The 10 Lost Tribes of Israel”.
Today there is no definite trace of these 10 tribes and many theories exist about their destination. Josephus, a Jewish historian who lived in New Testament times, was appointed by the Roman Empire to complete a historical record of the Jews, He refers to the existence of great numbers of these exiles of Israel, who, during his time, lived “across the Euphrates river amongst the nations.” (Antiq. XI,2)
The New Testament authors also refer to these Israelites “in the Dispersion” – a Prophetic concept (referred to also in Ezekiel 34:11-16). The Old Testament in several places also refers to this group as the ‘Harlot Bride’ of YHVH, who was repudiated by Him. (Refer James 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1,2; Jeremiah 3:6-8; Hosea ch. 1 & 2; Isaiah 54:1-8 and follow up other cross references in your Bible).
Messiah Himself makes an astonishing claim in Matthew 15:24: “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” And again, in Matthew 10:5,6: “Do not turn your steps to pagan territory, and do not enter any Samaritan town; go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” (Also John 11:52).
Refer: The Original True Gospel.
Volumes have been written on this subject and speculation is rife. Throughout the world, groups of people claim to be descendent from these Ten Tribes of Israel. Some use it to fuel their racial and anti-Semitic teachings. One wonders how these people could possibly fulfill the Prophetic Vision of eventual Restoration to the Body of the Almighty under an Israelite/Jewish System when they despise this System?
The revealing and reuniting of the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel to Judah (the Jews – part of the other 2 Tribes), is one of the most miraculous events of the future, according to Biblical Prophecy. The Body will then have been fully restored (READ! – Jeremiah 3:18; 16:15; 23:8; Ezekiel 37:15; Hosea 3:2; Zechariah 12).
(For comprehensive studies on the topic of the Restoration of the full House of Israel – of which you may well be part – visit our library at 1.1. End-Time Joining together of the Two Houses of Israel )
Those who would classify this great future event as impossible or far-fetched, should note that similar interpretations and predictions by enlightened Christian students at the start of this century, regarding the Return of Jews to Israel, their ancient Homeland, were regarded as just as impossible. At that time, Israel had been exiled from their country for 19 centuries. They had suffered endless persecution and agony amongst the nations by whom they were mostly regarded as second rate citizens and outcasts. Such predictions of a Return to the Land of Israel seemed quite ridiculous during the 2nd World War, while Hitler was systematically exterminating the Jews in their hundreds of thousands in his death camps in Germany. These interpreters, however, were convinced that the Almighty does not make empty Promises. And truly, in May 1948, after some 2000 years of exile, the modern State of Israel was declared by a nation of physically emaciated and disease-riddled survivors of the death camps of Europe! And, as if not sufficient suffering for them, they found the fertile Land of their forefathers in a totally neglected state of barren deserts, infected swamps, plagues and pestilence. Prophecy has been fulfilled!
In the 50 years since, the generation of our time has seen “the desert bloom”, as predicted by these ancient Prophecies. We have witnessed the development of the “new” Israel, from an infirm little State to one of the mightiest military powers; ranking as one of the most technologically advanced countries of the world and soon to compete with the highest per capita living standards of the developed world! Hardly a newscast passes the news channels of the world without the mentioning of some or other event involving Israel. Time and time again over the last 50 years, the world faced the danger of a war situation in which Israel had become involved, which could spark the scripturally predicted cataclysmic Armageddon international holocaust – the most recent of these being the Gulf War with Iraq in 1991. (Refer to our On-Site Library Copy of “Jerusalem- Final Countdown to Armageddon”).
Just as surely, the time will come that the currently ‘lost’ and unidentifiable 10 Tribes of Israel will be identified and returned to Israel, the Land of their forefathers, to be reunited to Judah (the Jews) to form one nation or Body. This Body will then serve the Almighty according to His Laws and Customs in the Land of Israel. (read Ezekiel. 37:15 – 28).
According to Scripture, there should therefore be “a multitude of nations” in the world today, being physical descendants of Ephraim and the one true Body. It may well be that you, the reader, are physically descendent of this group of whom the Almighty has promised that their Israel identity would one day be revealed. Does this idea excite you or threaten you?
Scripture is also very emphatic, that this group can not just simply return without a spiritual cleansing process. Because, as previously mentioned, the Almighty regards this Northern 10-Tribe section of Israel as His “unfaithful Bride”, a “Harlot” now rejected by her Husband, and severed from the Eternal Covenant (Jeremiah 3:6; Jeremiah ch.31 as well as Hosea 2 & 3). A supernatural reconciliation with ‘her’ is required. The Almighty’s great love for her, as well as His Mercy towards His former ‘wife’, demands that His rejection of her cannot be eternal (Isaiah 54:6-8; Ezekiel 16:59-63). The prophecies refer to her genuine repentance and return to her real ‘Spouse’ (Hosea 2:13-19). His own sacrificial offering on Golgotha would serve as the Price to restore His unfaithful beloved ‘wife’ (the Northern 10 Tribes of Israel). This phenomenal act of Mercy did not only serve as the price paid to restore the stray section of the Chosen People; but also to reconcile the gentile or paganistic human beings to His Body, irrespective of which nation they belong to. The condition however is common to both, namely to be subjected to the Divine Law or System of the Almighty.
It seems that for the born Jew, therefore, there is another Plan of reconciliation. Note that Judah, who is also referred to as a ‘faithless Bride’, had never ever been divorced or repudiated by YHVH. (Jeremiah 3:6-12; Zechariah12:7 – 10; 13:1; Romans 11:15 – 33).
Many Bible believers are of the opinion that the Jews, because of their rejection of Messiah YAHU’SHUAH – is forever rejected and condemned, and that they are therefore no longer part of the Body. According to the Bible, the Almighty recognized and acknowledged this problem ages in advance (Jeremiah 33:23-26) “The Word of YHVH was addressed to Jeremiah. ‘Have you not noticed what these people say, “The two families which YHVH chose He has now rejected?” ‘So they despise My people whom they no longer think of as a nation. YHVH says this: ‘If I have not created day and night and have not laid down Laws for the heaven and the earth, why, then I reject the descendants of Jacob and of David, My servant … for I mean to restore their fortunes and take pity on them.’”
Jeremiah 31:35-37 “YHVH Who provides the sun for light by day, the moon and stars for light by night. … says this: ‘Were this established order ever to pass away from My Presence – it is YHVH Who speaks – only then would the race of Israel also cease to be a nation in My Presence for ever. Were the heavens above ever to be measured, the foundations of the earth below ever to be fathomed, only then would I reject the race of Israel for all that they have done. It is YHVH Who speaks.”
For those who still are not convinced by these unshakable Words, there is a divine warning in Zechariah 2:8 “for whoever touches you (Jerusalem), touches the apple of My eye”.
Amos 9:14, 15 confirms that YHVH would certainly re-erect Israel and that the ancient cities would be re-inhabited – and that the nation would never be ejected again!
Ezekiel 20 gives a summary of the history of Israel, including that which is still future. Many a time the Almighty would have wiped them out because of their disloyalty and disobedience, but He resisted to do so because “…respect for My own Name kept Me from allowing it to be profaned in the opinion of the nations” (as repeatedly stated by the Almighty in this chapter). In verse 39 He vows that eventually, Israel would serve Him with sincerity and that all the nations would then understand and acknowledge His Divine Loyalty.
Do you believe that Israel is forever doomed? Does the realization upset you that, as a believer, you eventually should be joined to the one true Body and ‘Jewish’ System under the Eternal Covenant? This is surely where God wants you – but YOU are left with the choice to accept, avoid or reject. May you choose to strive for and to select and join His Body and walk in His Way.
2. ONE SPIRIT
The Almighty deals in a direct and physical way with the physical side of the Body, which is the nation of Israel. He communicated with Moses and the prophets personally; He led Israel through the wilderness in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. With His ‘New Testament Body’, however, He communicates in a spiritual manner, by way of His “indwelling Spirit”, according to Prophetic Promise.
Ephesians 4:4 emphasizes that there is only ONE True and pure Spirit. It also warns us about the existence of ‘another’ spirit:
- An evil spirit Judges 9:23
- A lying spirit 1 Kings 22:23
- An adulterous spirit Hosea 4:12
- An unclean spirit Zechariah 13: 2
In speaking of the True Spirit, the Bible describes the Spirit of YHVH as moving over the earth (Genesis 1:2), as well as indwelling the human being (Exodus 31:3; Numbers 27:18). This empowers the human being with wisdom and inspires them to good and great deeds.
In fulfilling His part of the Eternal Covenant with His One True Body, the Almighty promises in Ezekiel 36:27, when He refers to the New Covenant which He would conclude with them: “I shall put My Spirit in you, and make you keep My Laws and sincerely respect My Observances. You will live in the Land which I gave your ancestors. You shall be My People and I will be your God.” (Read also: Jeremiah ch. 31)
Does the SPIRIT in you, urge you to stricter obedience of the Divine Law, or have you been taught that “the Law has been nailed to the cross”; superseded by the New Covenant (canceled for all time)? What will you do with the explicit Scriptural directives mentioned above? Which spirit will you follow?
The Bible emphasizes the solemnity of the believer’s obligation to obey the Divine Law. In fact ,the Almighty in His Wisdom, has instituted a Test Command, namely the Sabbath commandment, i.e. the observance of the 7th day – Saturday, instead of the 1st day – Sunday (Read Exodus 16). Sooner or later the believer will have to choose between these two days, in order to be identified as a member of the Body of true believers, because according to Exodus 31:13, the 7th day Sabbath is the identifying sign between the Almighty Creator and His true followers.
As usual, the evil one has planted his “sign” right alongside that of the Almighty: “Not Saturday, like the Jews, but Sunday, the first day of the week… and then he gives many misguided reasons for this change in the Law of YHVH.
Check your ‘Road Map’ carefully, to determine along which Way you find yourself, on this journey to Eternal Life.
Contrary to the teaching of many believers, Messiah YAHU’SHUAH did not give one single instruction to abolish the Divine Law. In fact. He commands strict observance thereof (Matthew 5:18-19). Furthermore, He emphasises that observance of the Law is a prerequisite to Eternal Life, which means that He regards His Law as the KEY to ETERNAL LIFE!
Mark 10:17-19: As YAHU’SHUAH walked, a rich man approached Him, and going down on his knees before Him, asked: “‘Good Master, what must I do to inherit Eternal Life?’ …You know the Commandments: You must not kill…’” (and then follows the rest of the last 6 Commandments). He deliberately avoided the first 4 Commandments here, for the reason that we shall shortly see. The first 4 Commandments refer to honouring the Almighty, while the last 6 refer to honouring fellow human beings.
“Master, I have kept all these from my earliest days”, responded the man.
YAHU’SHUAH knew exactly what the man’s weak point was … (verse 21) “There is one thing you lack. Go and sell everything you own and give the money to the poor … then come, follow Me’ But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great riches.”
YAHU’SHUAH knew that this man did not actually fulfill the Commandments. Although the literal observance of the Divine Law is essential for inheritance of Eternal Life, there is more to it … a loving, caring, spirit toward the Creator and toward fellow human beings. This is what was lacking in this rich man, … his riches were in the way. YAHU’SHUAH (being the Word Himself, John 1:1) offered the man a dual solution:
- To give all his possessions to the poor … thereby truly fulfilling the last 6 Commandments, and in addition to that …
- To follow the Messiah … in so doing, fulfilling the first 4 Commandments.
The rich man had been living according to the ‘letter’ of the Law (as is required of us to do), but without a love or spirit motivated drive. Through a true spiritual rebirth, his possessions would become less meaningful to him. He would then also develop a deeper love, not only for his Creator and Saviour, but also for his fellow beings. In this way he would then truly fulfill the Commandments, as stressed in Deuteronomy 6:4, namely, to love the Almighty “with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind”. Matthew 22:38,39 “This is the greatest and the first Commandment. The second resembles it: ‘You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two Commandments hang the whole Law (the 5 books of Moses) and the Prophets also.’” (Please note: this Scripture does not say that the Law has been “done away with”).
Ezekiel 36:27 and Jeremiah 31:31 refer to this ‘spiritual’ (mind or mental) observance of the LAW, when the Almighty – according to His promise – puts His Spirit into the believer, and by so doing, enables the believer to observe and obey the Divine LAW in it’s fullness.
The ONE true Spirit enables the believer to love and to literally observe and obey the LAW (as did the rich man). This is also the means by which the individual should know that he/she is actually filled by the True Spirit of the Almighty, and thereby fulfilling the requirements for obtaining Eternal Life.
1 John 4:1 gives us a further clear measure by which to test and distinguish the different ‘spirits’: “It is not every spirit that you can trust; test them to see if they come from YHVH. There are many false prophets in the world. You can tell the Spirits that come from YHVH by this …”, and then follows the vital test:
“Every spirit which acknowledges that YAHU’SHUAH the Messiah (‘Jesus’, according to popular Christian belief) has come in the flesh, is from YHVH”.
But isn’t this, after all, what every believer professes? Yes indeed, but even unbelievers acknowledge this fact superficially. So also do satanists, atheists, pagans, agnostics and others, because it is generally today accepted as an historical fact that YAHU’SHUAH came to Israel. Does this now mean that all these people are being influenced by the True Spirit?
Unless this test is to be interpreted otherwise, then every one out there has to qualify. But, how can this be? Surely there must be more to this condition than meets the eye?
Messiah Himself gave the solution to this question, in John 8:24, a key which many will protest against, or even deny outright: “ … if you do not believe that I AM HE, (i.e.: YHVH the Eternal FATHER – ‘the Great I AM’), you will die in your sins!” Thus, unless we acknowledge that the Son and the Father is the One and self-same Being, then there is no Salvation for us!
Let us now apply this fact to the test given in 1 John 4:2, and it will read as follows: “Every spirit which acknowledges that YAHU’SHUAH (i.e. the Eternal FATHER and Almighty Creator Himself – Isaiah 9:5) has come in the flesh, is from YHVH”.
It is amazing how that only a few people are ready to acknowledge this important fact. It seems to be more acceptable to acknowledge that the FATHER sent His SON- a separate being, rather than to accept that the FATHER Himself, took the form of a human being (as clearly stated in 1 Timothy 3:16), and died on Golgotha as the Supreme Sacrifice! It should be obvious that Satan would rebel against this fact, because he knows it is true ! (This subject, probably the most revelationary subject in the Bible, is indeed far too wide and deep to be dealt with in this study. Refer to our On-Site Library for a more detailed study on: The ONENESS versus The Trinity).
So far we have pointed out that the TRUE SPIRIT can be identified on two levels:
- A Spirit subordinate to the whole LAW of the Almighty, …and,
- A Spirit of Acknowledgment (Witnessing) of the Divinity of YAHU’SHUAH the Messiah ,i.e. that the Only True Almighty of Israel (Deut 6:4) Himself came to this world, to save His people. This dual purpose runs like a golden thread right throughout Scripture: viz. “To the Law and to the Testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because they have no light in them” (Isaac 8:20). According to Revelation 14:12, these are also the two identifying factors of those who qualify for Eternal Life. Revelation 12:17 also describes how the Dragon makes war with “the people of YHVH, who keep His commandments, and have the Testimony of YAHU’SHUAH”, i.e. that He is the One and only True Almighty.
Once again we see different ‘roads’ and ‘road signs’- the one sign points to the ONE AND ONLY CREATOR (Deut 6:4, Isaiah 43:11, 45:5,24, etc.), while the other sign directs to a “triune” (three in one) creator. There are no direct text references in the Bible to verify this theory. Some translations do quote such a reference in 1 John 5:7, but new translations generally discard with it, because it is today generally acknowledged by scholars, that this reference was inserted in some late manuscripts and was not in the original transcript.
It is therefore not surprising that the ‘other spirits’ are vehemently protesting and rebelling against these Bible Truths! What is your choice? Which Spirit will you choose to obey?
3. ONE MASTER (LORD)
Our analysis thus far of Ephesians 4:4, has shown that the True Way is the way of obedience and observance of the Law, as well as the profession of the ONENESS of YHVH, namely that YAHU’SHUAH the Messiah is the ONE and only Almighty Creator, YHVH Himself.
The opposite and confusing theory claims: “not One Lord” as stipulated by Ephesians 4:4, but “three Lord’s, who are one.”
This contradicting theory of a Trinity is supported by many Bible believers, in spite of the declaration in 1 Cor 8:4 “… We know that…there is no God but the ONE … for us there is ONE God, the Father,… and there is ONE Lord, YAHU’SHUAH the Messiah, through whom all things came and through whom we live”
Although it seems as if this Scripture refers to two Beings, the alternative is just as true. Consider, if this passage, in similar style, stated: “…There is ONE Saviour and ONE Mediator …” Would it thereby suggest two separate Beings? Of course not! The writer may as well have continued with: “There is … ONE shepherd … and ONE Redeemer… and ONE Advocate with the Father … and ONE Mediator between Man and the Almighty … etc. These are not different Beings – but ONE and the selfsame BEING with many different titles. Scripture, correctly interpreted, confirms that it is YAHVH the Almighty, Who took on the form of flesh, as YAHU’SHUAH the Saviour (1 Timothy 3:16).
We will deal with the ONENESS of the Almighty in greater detail in our closing chapter.
4. ONE FAITH (SYSTEM)
This signpost on the Way, hardly needs any further comment, because if there is only ONE Body, ONE Spirit and ONE Master, then there must of necessity be only ONE underlying Faith (or System).
Let us submit to the admonition of the writer in Jude 3: “ … I have been forced to write to you now and appeal to you to fight hard for the Faith which has been once and for all entrusted to the Saints”
The Saints therefore possess that ONE FAITH and it is important for every believer to strive toward it, and to uphold it. Hence the above quoted solemn calling from the last pages of the New Testament, which is similar to the solemn calling in the last paragraph of the Old Testament: Malachi 4:4 “Remember the Law of My servant Moses, to whom I prescribed Laws and Customs for the whole of Israel”.
The apostle Paul also refers to this same ONE Faith in Titus 1:1 as the Faith for “those whom God has chosen”, to bring them to “the knowledge of the Truth that leads to True religion”.
Who are these holy ‘Saints’ or ‘chosen’ ones? In the Old Testament the word ‘Kadoshim’ – meaning ‘separated’ or ‘sanctified’. On researching the use of this word in the Old Testament, we find that it does not refer to heavenly ‘winged angels’ or ‘harp playing celestial beings’, but to the children of Israel! That is, His ‘chosen’ or ‘separated’ nation.
Exodus 19:3-9 “…YHVH called (to Moses) from the mountain and said: ‘… If you (Israel) obey My Voice and hold fast to My Covenant, You of all the nations shall be My very own … I will count you a Kingdom of Priests; a consecrated nation’”.
The ‘Saints’ therefore, refer to His chosen ‘Body’, the carriers of His ONE Faith which He entrusted to them by Divine Covenant. This includes both the ‘Old Testament Body’ (Israel), as well as the ‘New Testament Body ‘ (Spiritually Reborn).
Isaiah 43:1 & 10 “Thus says YHVH Who formed you, Israel … You yourselves are My witnesses … My servants whom I have chosen”.
Deuteronomy 7: 6 “For you (Israel) are a people consecrated to YHVH your God. It is you who YHVH our God has chosen to be His very own people out of all the peoples on the earth”.
It should be obvious, that He would reveal His ONE True Faith (religion or system) to this His chosen people. It is this same religion which Jude and Malachi wanted believers to return to.
It stands to reason that, if the Covenant people of Israel reaped the bitter fruits of punishment, suffering and exile across the world for 2000 years, as a result of their disobedience to the Law, and breaking of the Divine Covenant – then so also will it be the reward for anyone who chooses to reject the Eternal Covenant and teach that it had been ‘done away with’.
Which Faith will you choose: The ONE original Hebrew Faith which had been “once and for all entrusted to the Saints” – or perhaps another?
5. ONE BAPTISM
Christians generally see and understand Baptism as a ‘New Testament’ concept. But the remains of a multitude of baptismal fonts that exist to this day, dug out in shallow caves which encircle the ancient steps to the Temple in Jerusalem, bear witness to the contrary. Immersion (a ritual purifying bath undertaken by religious believers) was common practice in ancient Israel amongst religious Jews. John the Baptist therefore, did not introduce a new concept.
Even today, it is still common practice for strictly observant Jews to undergo this ritual cleansing process prior to religious holy days. The Charidim (a sect known internationally for wearing the peculiar black hat and clothes), queue up for such a bodily ritual cleansing at the Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem, just before sunset, marking the start of the festival. Incidentally, this ancient Biblically mentioned site is also the only natural source of running water in Jerusalem. Similar ritual cleansing immersion or baptism ceremonies are performed all over the world in ‘Mikvehs’ (ritual pools) at central Synagogues.
John the Baptist simply fulfilled the age old traditional ritual cleansing process, by immersing or baptizing those Jews who accepted YAHU’SHUAH as the Messiah (note: at that time there were no Christians yet). This ceremony was performed upon the candidates’ repentance of their sins in order to purify and prepare themselves for citizenship of the Kingdom of YHVH. Because of the controversial nature of his Message, John could not possibly make use of the public ritual Mikveh baths. He therefore baptised in remote areas, like the river Jordan.
The apostles (disciples) of YAHU’SHUAH who, initially, were mainly Jews, continued with this baptizing ceremony according to Messiah’s instruction in Matthew 28:19 (prior to HIS ascension to Heaven): “… Go, therefore, make disciples of all the nations; baptise them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; and teach them to observe all the Commands I gave you.”
In fulfilling this instruction, we read how the disciples baptized proselytes “…in the Name of the Messiah” (i.e.: YAHU’SHUAH, in the original text in Acts 8:16; 19:5; 10:48). As Jews, both the disciples as well as the newly converted proselytes understood very well that YAHU’SHUAH is the only true Salvation Name of their ONE only God, YHVH. They certainly did not misunderstand the Messiah’s clear Baptismal instruction, and by baptising “in the Name of YAHU’SHUAH”, as New Testament Scriptures relate, they actually confirmed that ‘YAHU’SHUAH’ is the Name that applies to Father, Son and Holy Spirit – yes, it also is the Name of the Saviour, Shepherd, Judge, Advocate, Rock of Salvation – and all of the 366 Titles that the Almighty fulfills in the Bible! For the Jew there is only ONE True Almighty (Deut 6:4). YAHU’SHUAH, being that ONE true Almighty, is the only Saviour – there is no other true Savior unto Eternal Life – Acts 4:12 “Salvation is found in no one else ; for there is no other Name under Heaven, given to man, by which we must be saved”.
No account is recorded in the New Testament, of any baptism done in a name other than that of ‘YAHU’SHUAH’. Why then do so many fellow believers of the early disciples baptize in a ceremony which does not mention any specific Name whatsoever? – They merely use titles, while His instruction clearly requires using “the Name of…” Or worse still – why should we baptize in strange names not even mentioned in the original Scriptures – like ‘Jesus’, ‘Jesu’, etc.- different names in different languages? His true original Hebrew Salvation Name was YAHU’SHUAH – i.e. YHVH the Saviour.
Once again, the reason lies in the fact that believers neglect to study their Road Map thoroughly and thus are unaware of the false road signs posted by the evil One.

6. ONE GOD
The next and final ‘sign post’ of the ONE TRUE WAY which we will discuss, is engraved in what the Messiah refers to as ‘The Greatest Commandment’ in Mark 12:28-34. This Commandment forms the cornerstone of Judaism and is recorded in Deut 6:4. Because it is such an important instruction, we will translate it directly from the original Hebrew – using ‘English’ phonetics as follows:
“SHMAA YISRA’EL YHVH ELOHEYNU YHVH ECHAD “
“LISTEN ISRAEL YHVH OUR GOD YHVH IS ONE “
Most translations render this verse something like this: “Hear O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is One”. Why is the Sacred Name of the Almighty not mentioned in these translations in this important verse and in almost 7000 other instances in most modern translations of the Old Testament?
Note: The Hebrew word ‘ECHAD’ is a commonly used word in daily usage of modern Hebrew, which is the official language of modern day Israel. Stick one finger up in the air and ask any Israeli: “how much?” The answer will be “echad!”. Deut 6:4 would be the final words that a dying Jew would utter.
By referring to “the Shemah” as “the Greatest Commandment, the Messiah, Who was Himself a practicing Jew, confirmed that YHVH is ONE and not “three”, as the major section of Christianity proclaims.
Our main text reference for our study, Ephesians 4:4, acknowledges this Oneness (Unity) of the Almighty clearly by the repeated use of the numeral ‘one’ … “There is … ONE Body … ONE Spirit … ONE Lord … ONE God and Father”
As already referred to in our discussion, Messiah regards the observance of the Commandments, including this ‘Greatest Commandment’, as the KEY TO ETERNAL LIFE.
John 17:3 renders it this way: “ Now this is Eternal Life: that they might know The, the Only True God, and YAHU’SHUAH the Messiah whom Thou has sent…”1 John 5:20 “We know too, that (YAHU’SHUAH) has come and has given us the power to know the True God. We are in the True God, in His Son YAHU’SHUAH. This is the True God. This is Eternal Life.”
We cant love someone we don’t know. In order to love HIM, we have to know HIM, and when we know Him, we will love Him. If we truly love Him, we will without question accept His Will as expressed in His Commandments and love Him Only – as there are none beside Him!
One may ask: ’Why does the New Testament seem to add another Being to the FATHER, i.e.: YAHU’SHUAH, “Whom Thou have sent”.
This brings us to the stunning, all inclusive revelation of which so many of us are ignorant of. Luke 10:22 “… No one knows who the Son is except the Father; and Who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the SON chooses to reveal HIM.”
Read it over again! Read it carefully! This is a Divine Revelation by the Saviour, the Messiah- the ‘Son’! It is unimaginable that He would give such an awesome revelation to anyone who would not truly, voluntarily, and unconditionally wish to love, accept, and obey HIM !
It is obvious that since time immemorial, there has been problems with understanding and interpreting the issue of the ‘FATHER’ and the ‘SON’. The New Testament writings and history books are full of it. However, if this matter is so important that the Saviour Himself has to provide the solution by special revelation, then surely there must be some mystery about the whole issue. 1 Timothy 3:16 refers to exactly such a Mystery (Read it for yourself). But remember, it is a Mystery which He is prepared to reveal to us.
The revealed Truth regarding this matter is contained in the Scriptures itself. In answer to the question of the religious intellectuals regarding the identity and relationship between “the Father” and “the Son”, YAHU’SHUAH replied as follows, John 8:19 “You do not know Me, nor do you know My Father. If you did know Me, you would know my Father as well!” This very same answer applies to all of us today!
Follow carefully the reasoning in this Scripture reference. The Saviour declares that He is the Father Himself, in human shape as predicted by the Prophets of old. John 8:20 confirms this when it states: “… He spoke these words in the Treasury while teaching in the Temple”. He made these claims right there in the midst of the Temple Priests – dangerous ground for such controversial statements! Yet, “…no one arrested Him, because His time had not yet come”.
Had they really known Him, they would have loved and respected Him, and He would have revealed Himself to them.
The scholars insisted: John 8:41 “… We have only ONE FATHER, the Almighty Himself”, to which YAHU’SHUAH replied: ”If the ALMIGHTY were your Father, you would love Me …”
In His further discussions with them, YAHU’SHUAH claims (in verse 56) that He (the Messiah) saw their forefather Abraham, who lived centuries ago. John 8:57: “The Jews said, ‘You are not 50 yet and You saw Abraham?’ YAHU’SHUAH replied, ‘I tell you most solemnly, before Abraham ever was, I AM’”.
The Name ‘I AM’ (Refer to Notes on the Sacred Name) is the Name by which the ALMIGHTY revealed Himself to ancient Israelites and Prophets as the only True CREATOR. As such He identified Himself to Moses in Exodus 3:14, when He spoke to him from the midst of the burning bush.
The occasion of His appearance to Abraham, to which YAHU’SHUAH referred, occurred many centuries before His New Testament Appearance. It is fully documented in Genesis chapter 17. Please read it for yourself.
Moses and Abraham knew well that they stood before the Almighty “I AM”. Similarly, the Bible scholars whom YAHU’SHUAH faced here, realized exactly what He was insinuating, namely, that He was the Great I AM. But they were greatly offended by the Truth as revealed by YAHU’SHUAH regarding His Oneness with the Father, and “… they took up stones to kill Him …”.
YAHU’SHUAH’s staggering conclusion of the matter is contained in John 8:24 “… If you do not believe that I AM HE, you will die in your sins”.
Is this warning directed to us today as well? Yes, undoubtedly, unless we wish to do away with the KEY to Eternal Life as contained in John 17:3, which links the knowledge and acceptance of His True Identity to Eternal Life.
Why is it so important for us to believe that YAHU’SHUAH is indeed the CREATOR and FATHER, the Great I AM? Simply because the knowledge of His real exalted identity will lead to greater admiration and love, which will cause Him to really reveal His full true Identity to the believer. This, in turn, would lead to greater obedience of His Laws, Statutes and Commandments which He revealed to Israel many centuries ago at Sinai. These Laws were handed down through Moses and it formed the foundation principles of His Covenant with Israel. Conforming to these principles secured an extended and peaceful existence in the Land of Israel for the faithful citizen. In deeper essence, it referred to obtaining Eternal Life in His future Universal Kingdom which will be set up for His reign from Jerusalem.
The correct interpretation of John 17:3 therefore refers to the requirement of the sublime Revelation that the Father and the Son is One and the Self-Same Being! For a comprehensive study on the subject of the Oneness of the Godhead, be sure to study our Bible Revelations Course.
Acceptance of this in submissive humility, will lead to further revelations, in order to bring the believer into the perfection of the One Body, through One Spirit, unto One God.
The awe-inspiring Power in the Name “I AM”, is clear from John 18, which describes the arrest of YAHU’SHUAH for His final hearing which condemned Him to death by crucifixion. The armed Roman guards approached Him where He was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane and asked Him if He was YAHU’SHUAH of Nazareth. “When YAHU’SHUAH said ‘I AM HE’, they moved back and fell to the ground.” John 18:6.
Armed guards who fell to the great at the utterance of a mere acknowledgment? Were they weaklings? How weak could they be? No, this rather is a clear indication of the mighty Power in the utterance of the Almighty’s Name by God Himself: I AM HE!
In similar fashion, there are many such veiled accounts hidden in Scripture, like sign posts to concealed lookout points for amazing views and meditation. Tragically though, many pilgrims on the way, hasten along on the Way on which they find themselves without heeding the signposts!
Thus we have, for instance, the beautiful viewpoint from John 10:24, during the Feast of Hanukkah in the Temple in Jerusalem. “The Jews gathered round Him and said, ‘How much longer are You going to keep us in suspense? If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly’. YAHU’SHUAH replied: ‘I have told you, but you do not believe … because you are no sheep of Mine. The sheep that belong to Me, listen to My voice … I give them Eternal Life … (Who else but the Almighty can do this?) … The Father and I are ONE!”
Do you truly also believe this? Not as claimed by the Trinity theory, that “the Father and Son is One, but the Father is not the Son, and the Son is not the Father.”
Friend, that is truly what the core of The True Way really is about, namely, the ONEness of the Almighty, not the THREE-in-one-ness!
John 14:8 “…Philip said (to YAHU’SHUAH): ‘Master, let us see the Father and then we shall be satisfied. YAHU’SHUAH answered: Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know Me? To have seen Me is to have seen the Father!” So how can you say, let us see the Father? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? You must believe Me”
To those who believe Him, He promises to reveal Himself and by so doing, He issues them with the Key to Eternal Life.
In John 10:38 He virtually pleads: “… Then even if you refuse to believe in Me, at least believe in the Work I do (like healing the sick and the blind; raising the dead and even forgiving Sin Mark 2:1 – 12). Then you will know for sure that the Father is in Me and I am in the Father.”
John 14: 1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in YHVH still and trust in Me … I shall return to take you with Me, so that where I am, you maybe too … I am the Way, the Truth and the Life…” (which is the theme of this study: ‘Acknowledge The WAY ‘)
“NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME. IF YOU KNOW ME, YOU KNOW MY FATHER TOO. FROM THIS MOMENT YOU KNOW HIM AND HAVE SEEN HIM” John 14:7.
7. ONE HOPE
Finally, the ONE HOPE spoken of in Ephesians 4:4. ‘Eternal Life’ (unending life), in Joy and Peace together with the Almighty in His perfect Kingdom- this is the ultimate: emanating from the Divine Promise, based on the Divine Condition … this is the whole purpose of the Divine LAW and the Eternal Divine COVENANT … the Hope that we may have ETERNAL LIFE, if we will follow the RIGHT WAY.
BIBLE REVELATIONS recognize the great Stumbling Block that evangelizing of Jews presents in the Reconciliation Process for the End Time, prescribed in Prophecy between Judah (Jews) and Messianic 10-Israel and the extensive damage done to the Jewish people over the centuries by attempts to convert them to Christianity.
BIBLE REVELATIONS do not support any of these missionary activities, either historically or currently. and declares its commitment to teach against the proselytizing or evangelizing of Jews, or the influencing of Jews in any way whatsoever to abandon their historic and correct faith.
Rather, BIBLE REVELATIONS strive to influence Messianics and re-identifying 10-Tribers to return to the Hebraic Roots of the Original One True Faith, to Torah and to Jewish Halachah and Rabbinic authority
