It is written:
“…He delivered us and called us to a life of holiness as his people. It was not because of our deeds, but because of his own purpose and the grace which he gave to us who are united with the Messiah Yeshua.” (2 Timothy 1:9 Complete Jewish Bible)
Entering in my 73th year, I can still remember with sorrow and shame my former sins; I know how much I am indebted to Free Grace, and humbly own that I never merited at YHWH’s hand anything but wrath and the curse.
But YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father, has begun to Save us, Jews and non-Jews, through our union with His Beloved Son, Yeshua HaMashiach, and will complete it in due time. He has Delivered us and is calling us to a life of holiness as His People, His Isra’el.
Our Salvation is ascribed to YHWH’s Grace, not to our own merit, and to the Eternal purpose of YHWH in the Messiah Yeshua. Yes, our Salvation is of Free Grace, and not according to our works. This Grace has been given to us before the world began, that is, in the Purpose and designs of YHWH from ALL Eternity in the Messiah Yeshua; for ALL the gifts that come from YHWH to us, sinful men, come in and through Yeshua HaMashiach.
Now YHWH has entrusted us with His Torah, His Shabbats, His Spirit (The Ruach HaKodesh), as tokens of His Presence and Favour; let us follow the pattern of the sound teachings we have received from Yeshua HaMashiach and from Paul, (which comes from Torah), with Trust and the Love which is ours in the Messiah Yeshua. Let us keep safe the great treasure that has been entrusted to us, with the help of the Ruach HaKodesh, (The Spirit of YHWH), who lives in us.
For us Jews and non-Jews Believers in the Messiah Yeshua, as the Isra’el of YHWH, all that YHWH our Elohim and our Father asks from us is to fear YHWH our Elohim, follow ALL His ways, Love Him, Serve Him, Bless His Name with ALL our heart and ALL our being and to obey, for our own good, His mitzvot and regulations.
Let us adore His Majesty, acknowledge His Authority, stand in awe of His Power, and dread His wrath. Let us reflect the beauty and glory of YHWH‘s Ruach HaKodesh (The Spirit of YHWH) as we serve Him.
Shabbat Shalom to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Messiah Yeshua: Let us fulfill our destiny, and take our place in the spiritual house, whose cornerstone—the One who holds it all together—is Yeshua HaMashiach.
