All praises to the MOST HIGH, YAHUAH our ELOHIYM
for the confirmation of HIS WORD in our lives. In and through HIS SON MelkiZedek, KING YAHUSHA HA'MASCHIACH by the Power of HIS RUACH HA'QODESH.
Just like with Joshua, son of Nun, Moshe's Minister who ABBA YAH promoted to Leadership of HIS Beloved Children Yashara'el after the death of HIS Beloved and Faithful servant Moshe...
So can it be with us today...Joshua/Yahusha was encouraged by ABBA YAH to "Be of Brave and of a Good Courage." HalleluYAH
In keeping ABBAS charge, HIS Commands were necessary for it to be well with Joshua:
Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Mosheh. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Perath, all the land of the Chittiym, and unto the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Mosheh, so I will be with you: I will not fail you, nor forsake you. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto את eth-this people shall you divide for an inheritance את eth-the land, which I swore unto their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may guard to do according to all the Torah, which Mosheh my servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper whithersoever you go. This Cepher of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may guard to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make את eth-your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. YAHUSHA (JOSHUA) 1:3-8
Beloved ABBA promises to Joshua were priceless. Can you imagine, ABBA said, "No man would be able to stand before Joshua/Yahusha all the days of his life!"
Wow! What a Blessing!
ABBA loved and encouraged Joshua/Yahusha. HE told HIM twice to be Brave and of a Good Courage.
Now when we read the above verses we see there was a condition for Joshua's/Yahusha's success.
He had to "GUARD/KEEP YAHUAHS TORAH/COMMANDMENTS. Joshua was commanded to be mindful to do all that is written in ABBAS TORAH.
Not to let them depart from his mouth nor his childrens mouth. HalleluYAH
He was to meditate upon them night and day and guard to do all that written therein. And then his ways would be prosperous in all that he does.
Amazing Blessings for obeying the WORDS of YAHUAH our ELOHIYM.
HE is truly a faithful, kind, loving, compassionate ELOHIYM and when we like Joshua/Yahusha love HIM with our all...by guarding/keeping HIS TORAH, HE will cause us to have good success and prosperous us in all we do.
One of the Blessings HE promises in the New Covenant is Eternal Life through 1. Receiving and Believing in HIS only begotten beloved SON, MelkiZedek (King of Righteousness) YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH.
We read in John 16:3: "For ELOHIYM so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believes in HIM should not perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE."
We also see in John 1:12-13 that "whosoever believes and receives in HIM-YAHUSHA HA'MASCHIACH, HE gave the right to become SONS of ELOHIYM. Not born of human decision, a husbands will or flesh and blood but born of YAHUAH ELOHIYM."
Another great Blessing is the promise of the beautiful "RUACH HA'QODESH/HOLY SPIRIT" promised to all those who believe, repent and are immersed/baptized in the name of YAHUAH-YAHUSHA for the remission of their sins.
Acts 2:37-39 "Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Kepha/Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Then Kepha said unto them, Repent, and be immersed everyone of you in the name of YAHUAH-YAHUSHA for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the RUACH HA'QODESH.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as YAHUAH ELOHAYNU shall call."
HalleluYAH! Praise ye YAH!
Just like Joshua/Yahusha had to keep YAHUAHS charge back then for it to be well with him in all that he does...so it is still today.
We are to keep/guard ABBAS TORAH, that it may be well with us.
1. We see in Revelation 22:14
"Blessed are they that do YAHUAH'S commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."
Beloved, in reading the above verse we see that YAHUAHS commandments still stand in effect today. HalleluYAH!
For it is written, "Blessed are they that do HIS Commandments." "Which is HIS TORAH."
Let's take a close look at a conversation YAHUSHA HA'MASCHIACH had with a Lawyer regarding the Commandments/TORAH in the New Testament/New Covenant.
Observe their communication as found in the WORD...
"And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Rabbi, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
HE said unto him, What is written in the TORAH? how read you?
And he answering said, You shall love את eth YAHUAH ELOHAYKA with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.
And HE said unto him, You have answered right: this do, and you shall live."
Note: The Lawyers question points to Eternal Life?
YAHUSHAS response prompted his answer from the TORAH of YAHUAH.
We see the Lawyer knew the answer..."And he answering said, You shall love את eth YAHUAH ELOHAYKA with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself." (v27)
YAHUSHAS response was that he answered well...he should do this and live."
Do you desire "Eternal Life" my Beloved's.
Are you now keeping YAHUAHS TORAH? Excellent...HIS promises are Faithful and True. HE decreed Eternal Life for those who do.
(Like MASCHIACH pointed out, the Lawyer answered correctly in stating the greatest and second greatest command.) HalleluYAH!
On the contrary if you are not keeping HIS commands and you are living a lawless life as a Christian or non believer preaching that they are nailed to the cross...you are walking in error my Beloved.
It is my sincere prayer we pray to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth and pray for discernment into the guarding of HIS TORAH and
