It is written:
“You are agreeing today that Adonai is your God and that you will follow his ways; observe his laws, mitzvot and rulings; and do what he says. In turn Adonai is agreeing today that you are his own unique treasure, as he promised you; that you are to observe all his mitzvot;” (Deuteronomy 26:17-18 Complete Jewish Bible)
As through our union with the Messiah Yeshua, we are agreeing that YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, is our Elohim and our Father, let us perform our part of the Covenant and follow His ways; observe His Torah, mitzvot and rulings; and do what He says.
In turn YHWH, through our union with His Beloved Son Yeshua HaMashiach, is agreeing that we are His own UNIQUE TREASURE, as He Promised us; as He said, through that union with the Messiah, we will be a holy people for YHWH our Elohim.
In the Messiah Yeshua, YHWH chose us in Love before the creation of the universe to be holy and without defect in His Presence (Ephesians 1:4). In our union with Yeshua HaMashiach, let us cling to YHWH, our Elohim and our Father, so that we can be His People, building Him a Name and becoming for Him a source of Praise and Honour.
Our Master Yeshua HaMashiach gave himself up on our behalf in order to free us from all violation of Torah (Titus 2:14); so we violate the most sacred engagements, if, when we have taken YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, to be our Elohim, we do not make conscience of obeying His mitzvot (commands).
The Covenant is mutual, and it binds to obedience both ways. So we are bound in duty and gratitude to obey YHWH, and it is at our peril if we disobey. It is His Torah; therefore we shall obey it, for to that end His Torah was given to us.
In fidelity to our word, as well as in duty to our Sovereign, let us keep His Torah and His mizvot (commandments). Let us obey them and not dispute them, do them and not draw back from them; do them not carelessly and hypocritically, but with our heart and soul, our whole heart and our whole soul.
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Messiah Yeshua. Grace and Shalom be yours in full measure. The greatest honour we are capable of in this world is to be taken into Covenant with YHWH, through a union with His Beloved Son Yeshua, and to live in His service.
