Saints, according to Scripture…

image

Here is a YouVersion image from good friend, Steve King.  How do the Scriptures define ‘saint?’  You may have the testimony of Yeshua, but do you keep the commandments of God?

Malachi 4 says the generation in the days of Elijah will keep the Law of Moses…  EVEN the statutes and ordinances!!

Got Torah?  Might be a good time to investigate…

‘IF,’ and ‘AND.’ Three perspectives….

Ever noticed some verses can have totally different meanings, depending on whose perspective or lens you read it through?prism

Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My [a]own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine;  Exodus 19:5

Christendom sees,

Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My [a]own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine;

They have and speak of the ‘Spirit.’

Excellent passage defending Messianic Torah observance!!

Here is an interesting passage that I already knew was a solid defense for Torah observance by the believer in Yeshua (Jesus), but, while referring to it in today’s Shabbat message, I noticed a couple words that have been there all along!  Funny how we can read verses and not SEE what is actually there.

Before we look at it, I want you to notice, this is a ‘last days’ passage.  Verse two gets quoted with the coming of Yeshua, but most never notice the context is decidedly eschatological…  End times!  Last days!  Has ‘not yet happened!!’

How many times?? Not 2 or 3, but…

I thought just two, then I saw three…  Now, just now, I saw the fourth!!  What am I talking about?  Check this out:   (All quotes from Revelation)

‘…who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.’

‘…who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.’

‘…they sang the song of Moses, … and the song of the Lamb…’

‘…had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God…’

It just keeps popping up.  Walking Torah and having faith in Yeshua!  See those references for yourself: 12:17; 14:12; 15:3; 20:4!!

Seems pretty important to keep studying this Torah stuff and learning to walk it out!

Shalom!
