It is written:
“Set them apart for holiness by means of the truth — your word is truth. On their behalf I am setting myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of the truth.” (John 17:17, 19)
The Message of the Bible is the story of the Redemption of Israel, by YHWH the Elohim of Isra’el. In His grace, YHWH has joined us to His people by uniting us to His Beloved Son Yeshua HaMashiach, the Head of His Isra’el, His People, therefore it is also the history of our Redemption in union with them and their history and NOT THE REVERSE.
There is only ONE olive tree to which we were grafted: Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, who is the Head of only ONE Body, “THE ISRA’EL of YHWH”.
YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father is asking us for a personal knowledge of His Son Yeshua the Messiah and a personal knowledge of His Word.
Eternal Life is this: to know YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, “The One True G-d”, and him whom He sent, “The Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”. (John 17:3)
Eternal life is to know Who? :YHWH “The One and Only True ELOHIM”; The Elohim of Avraham, of Yitz’chak and of Ya‘akov”, the Elohim of Isra’el, the King of the Universe; the Elohim of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord!
It is also to know the Real Messiah, “the Hebrew and Jewish” Yeshua of Natzeret, son of David, son of Avraham. There is only ONE, ONE ONLY TRUTH. It is Him that we must know, that we must know through the Word of YHWH, by the Ruach Hakodesh (the Spirit of God).
To know YHWH our Elohim and our Father is also to obey Him. For example, as foreigners who in our union with Yeshua have been joined to serve YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, to Love His Name, and to be His workers, like Yeshua, let us keep the Shabbat and not profane it, and let us hold fast to His Covenant.
The Truth is Yeshua HaMashiach, and the Truth is the Word of YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father. The Truth plays a fundamental role in the process of sanctification. The Truth is the personal knowledge of the True Yeshua of the Bible.
On our behalf Yeshua the Messiah set Himself apart for Holiness, so that we too may be set apart for Holiness by means of the Truth (John 17:19).
Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, wishes above all that we should be Holy. “TRUTH” is the means by which Holiness is attained. Error and deception are basic to evil, and TRUTH is basic for a life in union with Yeshua the Messiah.
Let us not follow the crowd when it does what is wrong, but pay attention to everything YHWH, our Elohim and our Father, have said to us, without reservation or exception.
The great thing to be asked of YHWH, our Elohim and our Father, is that we may be sanctified, effectually separated from the world, entirely devoted to Him, and experimentally acquainted with the influence of His Word upon our own hearts.
Let us keep the mitzvot (commandments) of Torah according to Yeshua’s teaching; we will retain our saltiness and our light will shine before men and bring honour to YHWH, our Elohim and our Father.
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. May Grace and Shalom be ours in full measure, as we come to a full knowledge of YHWH, our Elohim and our Father and of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord.
