What is Sin?


The Bible is very clear about sin from the beginning of the Genesis story. Sin kills because it separates us from a relationship of life with God. Sin is the plan of the enemy of God and humanity, the deadly design of the adversary and the goal of the deceiver. Sin's objective is death and the destruction of humanity.

The end game of sin is separation from the life giver, our creator God. Death is the judgment declared in Eden, but God offers a way through the death sentence of haSatan. God offers atonement, salvation and redemption.

In Hebrew, the one name that literally means "salvation" is the name "Yeshua". Today, in English we call Him Jesus. He was sinless, He never missed the mark, never broke any command of the Torah.

So, what is the Torah?

It is the loving teaching and instruction for living given by the Almighty Creator. It literally means direction, instruction and prophetic teaching, not "exactly" law as we think of it.


Lawlessness is "less" living, Torah-less life.
It is a life outside the Kingdom of loving teaching and instruction of God.


Exodus 12:49 tells us:
"One law [Torah] shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you."
This message is repeated again in Numbers 15:16 and Numbers 15:29.

The Torah ultimately points us to the need for Messiah. Jesus is the living "word" of God. He is the "law" alive, shining the Torah's light into darkness, we have to open our eyes and our hearts to see this, to comprehend it. If we do not, we are still stumbling in the dark. John 1:1-5 tells us:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."
So now you know, the English word we call the "law" in Hebrew - is "Torah". It means teaching and instruction. We can see that when we break the language barrier!

The Savior of mankind walked in the Torah, the "life" teaching of the Bible. He never ignored it, He taught everyone how to live in the spirit of Torah, after all, the words of Torah are His words. He is "the word", the living Torah of God. Everything He did is reflected in the Torah. Even the ark of the Covenant speaks of Him. All the writing of Moses is about Him (John 5:46). The words were put into the ark, as if buried inside. Jesus, the "word of God" was also put into a tomb. But He overcame it in resurrection.

Yeshua (Jesus) kept the Torah and therefore, He was sinless. He was never Torah "less". This is the reason the Roman Centurion defined His life as "righteous":
"Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man." Luke 23:47
John explained the same thing the Roman declared:
"My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ [Messiah Yeshua] the righteous: And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep his commandments [The Torah]." 1John 2:1-3
John also tells us:
"If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him." 1John 2:29
John is telling us to do righteousness, to do God's Torah, like Jesus.

Jesus did not come to "do away with the Torah". He tells us to NEVER think that, just read Matthew 5:17-19 for what He says:
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:17-19
He tells us He came to fill up its purpose to establish it with meaning by teaching it and physically living it out to show the world how to live in His Kingdom.

The Apostle Paul teaches that Messiah Yeshua died and was resurrected into new life on the 3rd day to free us from the curse of the law. The "curse" given by God in Eden is the death penalty of purposeful sin against God's instruction (see Genesis 2:14 and Genesis 3:3). God's instruction and teaching is for eternal life, that is the message in Genesis!! His instruction is eternal, it is never a curse, if it were then Messiah Yeshua would be an senseless, sinless imposter that came to free us from the teaching of God that reveals our need for Him as Savior and redeemer from the curse of death, the penalty of sin:
"Messiah hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." Galatians 3:13-14
To truly follow Jesus, we must follow in His ways. A way of life following the path after Jesus is a life walking in the Torah, the teaching of life.

Believe it or not, the truth is simple, but we have been deceived. The Torah points to Messiah.

Jesus kept the seventh day Sabbath of rest, He celebrated the seven Feasts of The Lord, after all He lived them in life and death. He is the Passover Lamb of God. His blood was shed on the wood of the cross. He was put into the grave on the day of Unleavened Bread, He is the Firstfruits, He was resurrected into eternal life on the very Day of First Fruits. He even ate healthy according to the word of The Creator’s Torah, not man's traditions, deductions and additions to it. He taught the Pharisees that did this that it was not the way of Torah, the way of life to add to man's traditions and religion to God's word.

Jesus has great compassion beyond our understanding, and that's one reason why He physically healed the blind and the crippled. He was demonstrating that "by faith" we must do God's word and walk in it to be healed. Every sick person was healed by faith while following His instruction. Knowing this, we must open our own eyes and see the light of Torah in Messiah.

The humble Jesus or Yeshua (in Hebrew, it means salvation) will return as King. He will have a united Kingdom, a commonwealth people ready to learn to live under His covenant constitution of life - The Torah.

That will be when we are restored and return back to the Covenant of His Torah within our hearts so that we can be empowered to represent our King on earth and serve Him as He reigns from Jerusalem. So let's get ready... now!
"Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send Messiah Yeshua, who was ordained for you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God spoke long ago by the mouth of his holy prophets." Acts 3:19-21
Many scattered in "the nations" are victims of identity theft. An identity lost to thinking in the so-called "Old Testament" instruction for living was hung on the cross, declaring it is finished but truth does not change.

So, the law, the Torah was not the law hung on the cross... just the death penalty for breaching it. That's the message from Paul in Romans 3. Many miss this truth because they only listen to a preacher quote excepts of the letter. I encourage you to read it all for yourself. In summary:
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus... Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law."
Paul teaches us more truth in his letter to the Corinthians.

Many do not realize that they do not need to live with a lost heritage. They can claim their family name as God's sons and daughters (see 2Corinthians 6:18).

Many today think of themselves as "Gentiles", but in God's eyes they are not any longer because they have been saved by grace, adopted and grafted into the ancient assembly that began at Mount Sinai, the assembly of the family of God, a people He calls "Israel".

We do not have to be lost sheep, lost to our true identity in Messiah, we just need to find the lost meaning of Torah in our lives. Just ask the Scriptures to know the teaching of God and His plan for your life that includes doing the things that Jesus did as He honored God and went the extra mile to help others.

So, if you love Jesus, wake up! Walking in His light is simple really, but it is up to you. It's your choice.

Jesus is the mediator of the Covenants, they are His words, and He wants to circumcise our hearts with a love and joy for walking in His ways. He wants us to be like Him and to help and teach others to do the same... now.

If you let Him, He can take away your disregard of His Covenant, allowing the Holy Spirit to move the words en-scribed in the two stones to the flesh of our hearts.

Today, He is actively working through His Spirit encouraging messengers to speak to the Believers that He is calling back to the Bible's instruction. I pray that is why you are here today reading these words. If you doubt the restoration that is occurring, just try an Internet search with the word's "walking in Torah" and you will see for yourself what is happening all around the world.

Just 10 years ago, those words would only give you a few results, perhaps most of them from orthodox Jewish sources, but today there are over 9,480,000 on Bing and 12,000,000 on Yahoo, which by its name alone is my favorite. Most of the link results are "believers" and "followers" seeking to learn to walk in the ways of Messiah Yeshua.

The restoration of the Kingdom and its covenant way of living is underway worldwide as the 120 Jubilees of time God told Noah of in Genesis 6:3 now wind up to the return of The King in glory when His Spirit will not longer strive and plead with a sinful mankind. Just like Messiah Yeshua promised His disciples, the re-gathering, the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel will occur the end days like the flood, after the coming great tribulation.

He came first as the humble Yeshua, Messiah, and He returns to reign as King on this Earth.

Two witnesses are always required by Torah and Yeshua made no exception for Himself. Just as Ezekiel 37:16-28 tells us the Messiah will restore Israel into one family tree as the two witnesses of the “Joseph” and “Judah” are reunited under the King as the re-stored “House of Israel” living in peace, as one kingdom people just as the prophet tells us.

There are two witnesses in Jew and Joe, both have been a light of spirit and truth to the nations of the world, one holding on to God's Torah and the other to His Messiah. But it is time to come together as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 18:20:
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
We must now awaken others to this promise of gathering in His name and to the heritage and identity of the family name of the children of God in Messiah which is "Israel." There is a parable that tells us about this amazing event, it is the “prodigal son” parable. It is about the lost son who left his Father’s “household” yet He returned to be restored to his Father and his brother.

Don't "miss the mark" here, the prophetic teaching and instruction found in the Bible is given to the people Israel and those joined with them ingrafted into the family of the living God. The Bible, all of it is for anyone that wants to be a friend, a child of God. Israel is not just a promised land, Israel is not just a name for the people known as Jews, and don't think for a moment that the keepers of the oracles of God are not a part of this great restoration to come.

You see, the Jewish people are one God's two witnesses, one of the two olive trees and that is as certain as the Bible. Replacement theology is a lie, a big deception. The Jewish people are now opening their eyes to the truth of Messiah and Christians everywhere are learning that God's words, all of them are still alive and well to teach us how to live in His Kingdom ways.

This 'grafting theology' awakening will soon allow us to come together and walk in Spirit and in Truth.

One Biblical truth is that "Israel" is the family name, the identity given all people that are united as the "children of God" whose names are written in the Book of Life. Re-united and re-gathered these two will be the "saints" we read about in Revelation 14:12. Join the family, be a part of those patiently waiting for the King as these two witnesses "keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus" wearing the fine white linen of righteousness.

Have you ever thought about it, you know, what is the true "faith" of Jesus?

The very definition of “truth” requires that only one thing can be true. That the only way is God’s way. This is a great "predicament", a paradox for many of us. Only one way and one truth can be the real deal! The truth is that all of the life teachings in the Bible, all of God's words that were given to Israel are there in the book for us today, but the history of mankind proves that we will not listen to God. Some of us had rather hear the sound of a pulpit and do so with Bibles closed. Others look to the politicians to lead them.

It is the election season this year, a "time" for some to "stretch" the truth and a "time" for others to lie. Do you ever get tired of all the lies? Do you know the lies when you hear them? Many do not. That is why the news networks now have "Fact Checks" after each nationally televised Presidential Debate.

Many have become so desensitized to lying today that they cannot discern the truth. We can't recognize it because deception has become an accepted expectation of politics and for many a norm. Lying is the opposite of truth. Like politics, lying is often the result of people thinking that they are right in their own eyes. They selfishly and stubbornly hold on to their views regardless of clear evidence to the contrary. Lies are becoming a constant in politics and that is a reflection of life that we tend to simply accept.

The Bible gives us God's great instruction: "do not steal". Lying is stealing the truth. Lying is a sin. But this commentary is not about politics and it is not about throwing out another negative political sentiment. Deception is at the very heart of all the world's problems. If you think politics are bad, perhaps the deceptions heard there are nothing compared to those found in religion where God's words are often twisted and turned to suit a theology. Politics have been around a long time, they are man's way of self governance which is often in opposition to God's rule and sovereignty, yet man's religions have been around even longer.

There are it seems hundreds of separate religions or denominations and each "thinks" they possess "the" truth. Each believe that they are correct in their own interpretation and doctrine.

Please don't go off the cliff here, I am NOT promoting secularization. I am simply pointing out the hard truth. The truth that rarely anyone addresses by seeking out the light of YHVH God's literal truth. Seeking God is not a religion. Reading and studying the Bible is not religious. It is just the journey of an imperfect person seeking instruction from the perfect One to guide us through life.

It's just that people tend to use their own views rather than seeking God's word. Grievously, perhaps that is what religion is at the end of the day despite all the noble intent. But when a rare thing does happen, when the truth is told, people often do not want to hear it. Perhaps that is why so many Bibles are on the shelf and not in our hands. That is because it's in our "fallen" nature. Eve knew the truth - straight from God's presence and mighty voice, but she believed the whispered lies of the Deceiver, the original liar. I urge you, seek the truth, all of it, but start at the front of the book and God's word will set you free in His Spirit and Truth.

We all need to wake up from our truth slumber. Seeking the simple truth, following the lead of the Spirit of God is the purpose of the website, to help you wake up to God's word. It is the way of life.

When Paul wrote about the danger of slumber in Roman's 11:8, the greek word "katanyxis" κατάνυξις tells us the truth. He was referring to a "spirit of stupor". A stupor is a mental dullness, a lethargic indifference; apathy, a state of suspended physical powers and activities. It is a "comatose-like" state that can occur when we are wide awake, it's not sleep. We need to know something, God's does not slumber or sleep. The Psalmist tells us:
"Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep." Psalms 121:4
The miracle of the flood and the miracle of the exodus from Egypt is that God showed the world the truth, He is God. He offers salvation (in Hebrew: Yeshua) to the entire planet, to all that will listen and act on His promise of life. Today, is not a time to ignore God’s truth, His voice in the Bible. Today, is not the time to “wait” to see what God will show us as His will in our lives. He already has, it's in His book - but we have to open it to see it.

God made us. He knows our nature. In Proverbs 21:2 God tells us that “every way of a man is right in his own eyes”.

Now is the time to know that being an adopted, redeemed people, a people following God and Messiah is what we need to be. Paul taught about this in Romans 8:15-23, Galatians 4:3-7 and Ephesians 1:4-7.

When we do this we join the citizenship in God's Commonwealth Kingdom and we assume the family name, the identity of a people He calls "Israel". The Bible gives us a great prophecy. It tells us the future, the hope and truth that Joseph and Judah will unite again as a family following Messiah, walking together in the teaching and instruction of God as we become the light of the world that we are asked to be.

That is what Paul taught in Romans 9:4-8, Galatians 3:26-29 and Ephesians 2:11-22. Read and study these, because to see oneself in the Kingdom of the God of Israel means that our heart and soul recognizes the identity and mission given by the Almighty.

His Torah is our sustenance our daily bread for living in the Kingdom with the blessings that come from His Spirit and Truth. There is instruction in the Bible specifically for priests tending to God's Altar and Tabernacle, there is teaching and instruction for men, for women and for children. To sum it up:
"Hold to the testimony, the life walk of Yeshua (Jesus) and keep the commandments of God". Just read Revelation 12:17.
Life is a challenge and a choice. Each day we must choose to show God that we love Him. We can show Him we love Him by what we do, what we do according to His instruction as a loving Father. Living according to God’s righteousness is a matter of choice. When we want to do things His way, it called righteousness, but we can't do it alone, we must ask God to empower us by His Spirit and in the end He alone can do it in us so that we have the heart to walk after Him and help others to do the same.

Scripture is always worth repeating, especially the words we've known from the one called Jesus, a.k.a. Yeshua, so:
"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches {them,} he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses {that} of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:17-20
The key here is that Yeshua is delivering an eternal message that the law or rather the Torah has a role in the ongoing plan of God and that we can never turn our back on or “abolish” the law if our goal is to be a part of sharing the redemptive work of God with others. As David noted, the reward for keeping and teaching others to engage in the Torah of Messiah is a “great" position in the kingdom and this should be the goal of any true disciple of Yeshua.

Incredibly, Yeshua also teaches us to emphasize the spiritual reality of the commandments because Messiah taught His disciples and He teaches us that true righteousness "must surpass" that of the scribes and Pharisees.

Whoa... what's up with that?

The deep message here from our Lord Yeshua is that the commandments of God, which are His commandments, can only be kept when they are understood as a love offering and blessing, not a religious obligation or duty.

We get to do what God asks us to do because we love Him and want to turn from sin. What an honor to keep!

Yeshua wants us to follow Him in the commandments from the vantage point of mercy and blessing, not merit from obligation. Like Abraham, we need to be reconciled to God by a walk in faith when He tells us something to do, so that The Father considers us a friend. As friend of God, we can walk in His instruction as a blessing not an obligation, and we can keep them in our heart and not look at them as a heavy stone to labor with.

The true Torah of God is freedom because Torah shows us sin and how much we must rely on God and not ourselves because we can't keep His word without Him showing us the way and helping us daily because we can never be righteous in the law. In the end, unless through His Spirit and a heart inscription, there is no ability to keep them.

It is this Spirit filled heart issue that Yeshua is magnifying in His teaching when He speaks of “surpassing” the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees. This message in Matthew from our Teacher is amazing but it's one we can easily miss unless we know that as God’s children we are blessed by His "teaching and instruction" (Torah), and our honor as His children for their keeping in NOT a means to become righteous and it is NOT religious as a list of to dos or don'ts, but rather an opportunity of humble love worship because our hearts are overwhelmed in love for "The One" who redeems us.

The Ten Commandments are Almighty God’s outline, His two tables of contents of the Torah.

Can you imagine that on one tablet are the principles of how we are to honor God and on the other how we are to honor our neighbors in this world. This is why Matthew gives us the story of a lawyer. Do you suppose that was a man that studied Roman law? Nah, he was most likely a Yeshiva teacher, a Pharisee Rabbi, a teacher of Torah. He asked Jesus which was the great commandment in the law as the witness of Matthew 22:35-40 describes. The response from Yeshua referenced the two tablets as two commands sum up the honor of Torah.

Yeshua said that to love God is the first and greatest Commandment. It is the 'Shema" of Deuteronomy 6:4-5. It is first and greatest in that it represents the heartbeat of every Torah word. But also remember He also said, “If you love me, keep my Commandments” John 14:15 and He said: "I and [my] Father are one" John 10:30.

Yeshua went on to answer the man: "And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang ALL the law and the prophets.”"

The two tablets were given at the fiery pinnacle of Sinai and they need to be our focus in applying how we are to honor and keep the teaching of our God.

By God's design, His desire is to have us rely on Him as we diminish ourselves, and so many aspects of the law are virtually impossible for us to keep. Many too are in a two-thousand year time out, a half time if you will between appearances. These include some of the Tabernacle worship services which the Prophets say will be reinstated in the second coming and millennial reign of King Yeshua.

This half time is ending soon, but the pause does not do away with or annul God's instruction, but rather this is a part of God's 7 point game plan. Just as there is a long wait between the four Spring Feasts that show us His first coming and the three Fall Feasts that will engage at His second coming, God’s will is right on schedule.

A huge part, if not most of the Torah instruction, provides protocol for the Levites alone as they tend to the work of the Tabernacle and the altar services in the near physical presence of the fire of God Almighty. He does not stand before us now on Earth, that should be plain and simple to understand.

Yet this in no way takes away from the death and resurrection work of Yeshua as our Savior.

We tend to freak out a bit or shut down when we consider that altar offerings will be seen again in the millennium Kingdom of our Lord, but consider that they will fulfill the same function they did long ago before the Pillar of Fire of the God of Israel.

They will give us a graphic and physical representation of the ultimate sacrifice by Yeshua and the atonement that only He provides.

The gift of the Levites and their services clearly pointed all of mankind 'forward to' the coming of Messiah and His Passover miracle of atonement death and resurrection redemption. So too, Ezekiel show us that the millennial Temple will direct our hearts 'back to' what He has accomplished for the redemption of all that follow Him.

We know now that the word Torah means teaching, so we can see that the gift of the Levites is a teaching for us as a part of the adopted family of Israel. And part of the teaching is that we must guard if we are innocently seeking Torah as the letter of the law and we must protect ourselves from any satisfaction which we think might come from walking in the righteousness of the scribes and the Pharisees.

Instead, we must remember Yeshua’s words that teach us that those with such righteousness will 'not enter' the Kingdom of Heaven. The 12 gates will be closed. Only those who "surpass" the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees are viewed as truly righteous and enter in Messiah's city where He reigns as King.

That can only be a work of the heart not the hand. Only as our love for God and each other enables us to understand the commandments as a blessing from our Savior will we be empowered to 'keep' them as He intended. So He alone is our teacher and He says...
“Not every one who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father, who is in heaven.”
The relentless grief and admonishment that Yeshua gave the whitewashed men He called graves was because the Rabbis had lost sight of the spirited heart of Torah and they became entangled in the wire of the words, so much so that their traditions became obligation and a dividing wall.

The Torah never describes a dividing wall between Israel and the nations. The people God calls to Himself as children of Israel are to be distinct and set apart by Torah, but as Yeshua taught His disciples earlier in chapter 5 of Matthew, this is so that they can be seen as a lamp, a light to the world. After all, if you blend in with the crowd no one will notice the menorah unless the lights are magnified as a bright fire because the seven menorah flames represent the manifest presence and Spirit of God. Isaiah 11:2 tells us of them:
"And the (1) spirit of YHVH shall rest upon him, the spirit of (2) wisdom and (3) understanding, the spirit of (4) counsel and (5) might, the spirit of (6) knowledge and of the (7) fear of YHVH."
Revelation show us these four times so they are VERY important to us in this time. I pray they are a revelation to you:
Revelation 1:4 "John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne."

Revelation 3:1 "And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead."

Revelation 4:5 "And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God."

Revelation 5:6 "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth."
I pray you will be a bright light to the lost as show others how to walk in the light of Messiah, the living Torah.
Isaiah 42:21 “The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will MAGNIFY the Torah, and make it honorable.”
May God Bless as you seek your oil to light a fire please Him because Messiah Yeshua is God, anointed in the flesh of His creation.

The Teacher is calling for you... He came in the flesh so that He could show us how to live and how to ask and seek forgiveness so that He could personally abolish the penalty for the enmity of willful sin. The death penalty is the warning to mankind that He gave in Eden and it is the law that He nailed to the cross as He alone overcame it in resurrection. You see, if you follow Messiah, what was "nailed to the cross" is the death penalty of our past sins.

If you are not certain about your salvation, that you will one day live with God as a child in His Kingdom, then you’re not saved. But salvation is not about being religious. The Bible is very clear. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, Catholic, Protestant or if you declare no particular religious creed or doctrine. The bottomline is: the one called Yeshua, the one many call Jesus says that "unless you be born again you cannot see the Kingdom of God".

That redemption is not religion: “You must be born again.” To do that, to be born again, starts by asking God for forgiveness and it means living by the word of God, the Scriptures which live for ever. This begins when you receive Yeshua - Jesus, as Lord of your life. To receive Him means to follow Him. What matters is what you will do now.

Will you can confess your sin and receive Him as your Lord and ask for forgiveness of your sin from God and the people you may have wronged?

If you will do that, the Bible promises that God will cleanse you, and He will take away your sin. This is not religion, no one can enter our creator God's almighty presence with sin and live. God's glory, His righteousness will destroy the sin and the person that the sin resides in will be lost too, so you must be clean of wrongdoing to approach God and only He can do that for you and cover you sin. It is that simple. God is that holy, yet He forgives, saves and will cover your sin.

Salvation and eternal life is God's gift. Turning away from sin, following God's way is the process of being born again by following Yeshua as Messiah. This birth of the heart will give a new beginning in your life. That means you can turn back to God and follow God's anointed, Jesus, as Lord of your life.

Confess with your mouth, believe in your heart and do things God's way starting today. If you will follow Him you shall be saved and He offers us an instruction manual, it's the Bible.

Pray to God, speak the words from your heart and soul to ask The Lord to forgive all sin, to wash it away and cleanse you. Then show God you love Him by walking in the light of the Bible in God's love, grace and presence.

Our Father wants His Kingdom to be right here on Earth, the Almighty "One" wants you to be a part of His Kingdom, that's why He made this planet in the first place and that why He teaches us to pray...
"Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven"
What does this all mean?

It means that it is now time to repent and return to God's covenant, return to hear and do His word and walk in the faith of His Kingdom path so that you can ready your lamp for your coming assignment.

God is a sovereign God. He is a loving God and He has provided a way to offer you His salvation. You can accept His gift of life. Consider carefully what your life consists of, look at it and repent of your sin, ask His forgiveness and accept His gift of love through Messiah Yeshua.

Today is the time. If you know you need to get your life right with God, don’t wait for tomorrow, get it right with Him now!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17
Shalom.
