Does Faith alone get us into the Kingdom? We know HE says we are saved by Grace and that Faith is what we must have. Does this mean we can be disobedient and not follow HIS LAW because it got nailed to the cross??? Let’s go back and look at the beginning.
When the Israelites where let out of Egypt, Yahweh (God) promised to send death to the 1st born Male child of the Egyptians. He then gave a command!!!
Exodus 12:23 Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you.
FOLKS!!! CHECK THAT OUT!!! Read again and look at what happened. We all know they had FAITH but they were also given a command. If the Israelites did not have belief that Faith includes obedience then they would not have put the blood on the doorpost. We know they did believe in HIM and they had Faith in HIM but they were not saved on their Faith alone, they were saved on their obedience through their Faith to the command of putting blood on the doorpost. They didn’t base their salvation on the fact that they believed because the LAMB was SLAIN!!! Get that??? If they would have just said “We have Faith HE won’t harm us” and failed to put the blood on the door posts their 1st born male sons would have been consumed.
Our Lamb has been slain. HIS name was HaMashiach Yeshua = The Messiah of Salvation. We can’t and shouldn’t base our belief in salvation because the LAMB was slain. We should base our belief in salvation by our Faith and OBEDIENCE to HIS Torah (Law).
How powerful is that? Did you see that just as we did? In the beginning they all had to have Faith. The entire Old Testament tests their Faith over and over again and yet they were Faithfully obedient to HIS commands and not just 10 of them.
Wow so much good stuff on your site. But then I come to this. Salvation is The result of repenting from our old ways of thinking. What we now think is that we are in fact sinners and we believe that in fact Jesus Christ is God and he died for our sins. that is salvation – that is putting the blood on the door post. we do not add to it and we do not earn it. We do however change the way we live as we are obedient to the conviction of the spirit of God in our lives – some do better than others otherwise it would not describe some as being saved but through fire. Otherwise we spend our lives wondering if we’ve met some sort of standard. Because we all continue to sin. Then nothing we do is out of love because everything is connected to us assuring ourselves we are saved – so everything we do is for us. And that would not be good news. Not trying to be disrespectful but again on this one you are just flat out wrong. You’re putting works into salvation. That is exactly what the enemy has been trying to do. John Calvin was a Freemason used by the enemy to cause people to doubt their salvation and to make them ineffective. Also to cause people to miss salvation by thinking they themselves contribute to their own salvation and taking away from what God did. I have to ask if any of you are freemasons. Very sorry but until I read this I thought you guys were great but now I don’t know if I trust you.
Nope, not Freemasons or anything else. Just posting our research. All throughout scripture it talks about Faith. With Faith comes obedience as you mentioned (John 14:15). We all fall short (Romans 3:23). Do we forego obedience to the law because we have faith, nope (Romans 3:31). YHVH said (John 14:15)
