God's timing is perfect: always. It turns out that even though the Lord spoke to me about this
on the 12th, I wasn't ready to write about it until I read something, sent to me by my friend
Laura, regarding our experiences, recently felt, with people who had become distracted away
from passion for Jesus to a passion for Torah.
What saves a man?
It is a belief...a trusting. Let's look at Romans 10:9-10
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
I'm not going to write a long article and risk having my point lost here. We are saved by
what we believe about the Lord Jesus. Are we willing to confess Him. Confess what? That
He is the messiah, the son of God, the Lord God. End of story! No! Confess that He is the
end of the Law. He is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other way. There is no other
name. There is no one who has other words that lead to eternal life.
What is a belief unto salvation? Biblically, it is a set of ideas, backed up by reasoned actions
that are taken based upon those beliefs. It is said that the faith that saves is not alone, even
though we are saved by faith alone. And yet, it begins with ideas...thoughts...beliefs held in
the heart, mind and soul.
Guard yourselves! There are many who are pulling on us to accept a Jesus + Torah, or Jesus +
Sabbath, or Jesus + Works salvation in this hour, just as it has happened before in times long
ago. The dissenting view that was presented at the Jerusalem council spoken of in Acts 13
has never rested. They have never accepted the decree of James.
Jesus will never have it or endure it. Coming back under the hegemony
of even one law brings you under the totalitarian rule of the whole 613 written laws of the
old covenant. Moses becomes the judge. NOT FOR ME! NOT FOR YOU!
When did a law ever keep you from doing something? No, in fact, many times, the existence
of the law encouraged the lawbreaking. Underage drinking would not have been exciting at
all for me if I had not been underage and my behavior thereby illegal. No, it is passion for
Jesus...belief in him, that saves and delivers from sin.
Remember: your salvation begins with a belief...a mere set of thoughts. Don't let anyone
confuse you or bewitch you into believing a lie. Discipline your mind in this hour. Don't
allow yourself to be drawn away to beliefs that do not save. If salvation begins with a thought,
perhaps it can be missed with an errant one. Guard your thoughts and your beliefs. Baptize
with the word of God. Content earnestly for the faith, once delivered to the saints. In the
power and passion of Jesus Christ, stop sinning and live holy lives unto the one who first loved
us and gave himself a ransom for us. He paid it all!
