WALKING WITH MESSIAH
WALKING WITH MESSIAH
Colossians 2:6 - As ye have therefore received YAHSHUA MESSIAH (the L-rd), so walk ye in Him:
John 10:27 - My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
John2:3-6-- ''And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments .4-He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5-But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.6-He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Scripture is very clear. If we claim to be believers we should be ''Walking, in the footsteps of Messiah'' This is the evidence of who belong to Him, those who have accepted Messiah as their Saviour and ''FoLLow Him"" as He told us to do.
Matthew 16:24--''“Then said YAHSHUA unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” To follow Messiah, it is necessary to "Walk in His Steps" As we read Scripture we see that Messiah was a righteous man, who was obedient and held to the Word-, who spoke as the Father gave him to speak...In other words He was "Obedient" to the Word, as HE WAS THE WORD. JOHN 1:14. He was in the Synagogue on Sabbath, He taught the Scripture, HE kept the Feasts. HE was perfect in all of HIS ways. 2 Samuel 22:31-40
He said in Matthew 5:17--''“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” *(Fulfill-Fill up) -Strong's 1603. Matthew 5:18--""For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
And Messiah tells us, John 15:10'-''If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's Commandments, and abide in His love.'' Straight forward statement,
Matthew 28:20--""“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
No-''maybe''; , as stated before, ""If we love Him, keep His commandments'' John 2:3-6 This shows why it is necessary to "Come out from among them and be ye separate""The world does not follow Him, nor do they walk in HIS ways.
2 Corinthians 6:17--''“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith YAHVAH (the L-rd), and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”'' We must obey His Word, The Scriptures, all of it, THE TORAH, the written Commands of our Heavenly Father. Not the words, nor oral laws of men, but the Scriptures only. His Words are a light unto our path, they are LIFE;
John 6:63--''It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life''
PSALM 119:105--'' Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path''.
Deuteronomy 11:26-28--''26-Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; 27-A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of YAHVAH (the L-RD) your Elohim (G-d), which I command you this day: 28-And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of YAHVAH (the L-RD) your Elohim (G-d), but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.''
ACTS 5:29 - ''Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey YAHVAH (G-d) rather than men'' GOOD ADVICE !!
IN HUMBLE OBEDIENCEi
