Truth-whatever it takes

Restoring the Biblical Feasts

Speak and live the truth whatever the cost? Is it worth it?

In society we live in, it’s impossible not to lie?

If we lie, or believe in lies (false truths) how is our spiritual life before God?

If in fact we are converted, and followers of the ” REVEALED TRUTH”, YESHUA HAMASHIACH, shouldn’t we just talk and believe the truth?

Who will inherit the Kingdom of heaven?

The Bible says about those who will be left out, it is worth reviewing this list:

“Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” Revelation 22:15

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. ” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” Revelation 21:08

It may seem complicated, but we must speak the truth even if it costs our reputation, even if that truth causes losses in our lives.

In the spiritual realm and private life “the lie” is serious, because the Bible clearly shows that those who live a life of lies is on the opposite way of GOD and that those who live in practice of lie will not inherit the Kingdom of God. The opposite of the lie is the truth and the Messiah is the truth, as he himself stated saying:

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. “. John 14:6

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32

Servants of God disciples of Yeshua should not live a life based on lies.

“There are six things that the Lord hates,seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue,and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans,feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies,and one who sows discord among brothers.” Proverbs 6:16-19

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.”
1 Timothy 4:1-3  

“No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house;no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.”
Psalms 101:7

“Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. ”
Colossians 3:9-10

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”Exodus 20:16

“Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. ”
Ephesians 4:25

The Bible gives the devil paternity when the subject is LYING.

“You belong to your father, the devil, and want to realize his wish. He was a murderer from the beginning and not clung to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When you lie, your own language, because he’s a liar and father of lies.John 8:44

Why then should the Church called Protestant, still live under the idolater and liar yoke of Rome?

We believers are not supposed to follow the truth written in the Bible, and to God only submit?

“But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.” Matthew 23:8-9

The Word tells us about Babylon and their abominations, it is a false prophet and deceives the people with half-truths.

” For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living. Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,”Come out of her, my people,lest you take part in her sins,lest you share in her plagues; “

Revelation 18:3-4

Over time we see that many things are taken from the original context and used for their own benefit. We see the Church of the Messiah choosing how and when to stand, to celebrate, how to be sanctified, what to follow or not, while the truth is one – ” The Word of God “ (the Bible) and whole, not only what suits us, but we must have an understanding of the whole.

The UNDERSTANDING of truth and love will compel our brothers, we should not JUDGE anyone by what they do, celebrate, eat, wear, etc., but through our testimony in Holiness, convince those who still live under the idolater Roman weight.

The be holy because he is holy. It has to do with Him, and not us; with his name being glorified, not ours.

Peter 1:13-25

” Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for”All flesh is like grassand all its glory like the flower of grass.The grass withers,and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.”And this word is the good news that was preached to you.”

The Lord established times and seasons, for his honor and glory.

The festive dates established by God for his people are described in Leviticus 23.

The established dates are 7 appointed times by God for his people to celebrate through attitudes and symbols, recalling events and prophesying future events.

We believe that through these celebrations in their appointed time the path of the Messiah was, is and will be prepared.

There are two other very important holidays in God’s prophetic calendar: Hanukkah and Purim, true stories that we remember in order to bring forth God’s principles and truths in our days.

We also believe that people who were not part of the Jewish people but who wished to celebrate/worship God through these acts and symbols could join them.

The Gentiles believers in Yeshua have increasingly approached the Jewish people and desiring to celebrate the feasts.

Zechariah 8.23 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”

Even so there is still a path to be trodden to what is called “fullness of the Gentiles” in Romans 11.25. “Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.”

The fullness is not about quantity but quality, i.e. the Gentiles believers being full in the understanding and practice of the Scriptures causing jealousy to the Jews and all Israel being saved.

 Romans 11.26 “And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,”The Deliverer will come from Zion,he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”

If you grew up celebrating pagan feasts, false and DECEITFUL, that are not in the Bible, (Carnival, Easter, Christmas, among others) repent, talk to your beloved ones, take a stand and start celebrating what’s true and pure.

Respect the Lord’s times and SEASONS. If he set dates, it’s because he wants to have a meeting with you on those dates, not before or after.

“And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not to be (let the reader understand),” Mark 13:13-14a

Speak and live the truth at all costs. Yes, it’s worth it!

In this way you will speed the salvation of the Jews and the return of the Messiah Yeshua.

In the Sublime and wonderful love of Yeshua haMashiach
