It is written:
“For you have been delivered by grace through trusting, and even this is not your accomplishment but God’s gift. You were not delivered by your own actions; therefore no one should boast.” (Ephesians 2: 8-9)
ADONAI (YHWH), the G-d of Isra’el, our G-d, is the Source and the initiator of our Salvation. It is ADONAI (YHWH), our God, who Delivered us through His Beloved Son Yeshua Ha-Mashiach our Lord, and called us to a life of Holiness as HIS People (Jews and non-Jews in Unity).
In the Messiah, ADONAI (YHWH), His G-d and Father, our G-d, chose us in Love before the creation of the universe to be holy and without defect in His Presence. He determined in advance that through Yeshua the Messiah we would be His Sons (Jews and non-Jews) in keeping with His pleasure and purpose (Ephesians 1:4-5).
And through our union with the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d, can forgive our mistakes and help us to start fresh.
Our Faith, and our Eternal Salvation, are not the mere product of our natural abilities, nor of any merit of our own. ADONAI (YHWH) Himself is the author of this great and happy change, and His Great Love is the spring and fontal cause of it; hence He resolved to show Mercy.
That Love of ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d is Great Love, and that Mercy of His is Rich Mercy, inexpressibly great and inexhaustibly rich.
The Grace that Saves us is the FREE undeserved Goodness and Favour of ADONAI (YHWH), the G-d of Isra’el, our God; and He Saves us, through Faith in His Beloved Son, the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, by means of which we come to partake of the Great Blessings of His Covenant; and both that Faith and that Salvation on which it has so great an influence are the Gift of ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d.
May the Goodness of ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d, in converting and Saving us sinners, be a proper encouragement to others, to Hope in His Grace and Mercy.
As for us, knowing that Yeshua Ha-Mashiach is not G-d–ELOHIM, let us treat the Messiah as Holy, as Lord in our hearts (1 Peter 3:15); while recognizing ADONAI (YHWH), His G-d and Father, our G-d, as “The Ultimate Authority” to whom ALL must submit, in whom ALL may Trust, and to whom EVERYONE must render an account.
Blessed be ADONAI (YHWH), the G-d of Isra’el, our G-d, for the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”!
