WE ARE ALL SINFUL.

IN HIS DEATH, YAHSHUA NAILED TO THE CROSS THE RECORD OF OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, AND NOT YAHWEH’S TORAH (LAW).
Colossians 2:13 -14

YAHSHUA IS THE WORD OF YAHWEH, THE LIVING TORAH.
Revelation 19:11-16; John 1:1-3; John 1:14

LIVING A TORAH OBSERVANT LIFESTYLE IS NOT A MEANS TO BE SAVED BUT AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE FOR YAHSHUA BECAUSE WE ARE SAVED.
Ephesians 2:4-10

OBEDIENCE IS AN ESSENTIAL EXPRESSION OF THOSE WHO ARE SINCERELY SAVED. OBEDIENCE IS OUR GREATEST ACT OF WORSHIP. WE MUST WORSHIP YAHWEH IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.

Matthew 5:48; 2 Corinthians 13:9-11, Romans 8:1, 1 John 2:6

We are not saved by saying a prayer. If we are sincere when we call on the name of Yahshua, out of our love for Him, we will obey Him, walk in His ways, walk as He walked, and live according to every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahweh. We must always aim for perfection in doing this. (Matthew 5:48; 2 Corinthians 13:9-11) “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Yahshua." "For the law of the Spirit of life in Yahshua has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” (Romans 8:1-2) The only way to avoid the condemnation we deserve for our sins is to be in Yahshua, to abide in Him. 1 John 2:6, “The one who says he abides in Him” [Yahshua] “ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.”
