�Behold to obey is better than sacrifice!� Samuel 15:22
This is the basic message of the Hebrew scriptures. With HYVH, the ONLY true Deity, actions speak louder than words! Creeds, and human doctrines, and �confessions of faith� do NOT satisfy the demands of YHVH, the Divine Creator and King. Blood offerings, �human� AND animal, NEVER really atoned for sin. Only sincere repentance, the decision to obey, once again, the Word of YHVH, can blot out the death penalty incurred by sin: �But if the wicked turns from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all My statutes and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely LIVE, he will NOT die! None of the sins he has committed will be held against him. By virtue of his righteousness, that he has DONE, he shall LIVE!� Ezekiel 18:21-22.
Millions of unfortunate souls have been brainwashed into believing that by accepting a �son of god� who was murdered �for them�, all their sins are miraculously washed away. YHVH�s Word says that obedience, NOT sacrifice (certainly not an abominable human sacrifice!) washes away sin. Christians are NOT obedient to YHVH�s commands! �I am YHVH your Almighty One � you shall have NO other gods in addition to ME!� Exodus 20:2-3. Jesus of Nazareth is a god other than YHVH: �Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be EQUAL TO GOD!� Philippians 2:5-6. Jesus was NOT THE TRUE GOD; �And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee (who?), the ONLY TRUE GOD (YHVH!) and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent!� John 17:3. Let nobody deceive you! Even the Christian �new testament� states that Jesus was NOT THE true �God�, but one �sent� by the true �God�. The �God� of Mary Magdalene was also the �God� of Jesus: �I ascend to my Father and your Father; and to my �God� and your �God�! John 20:17. A �true god� cannot have a true �GOD� himself unless there is more than ONE God! Since Jesus was NOT YHVH, NOT THE TRUE �GOD�, he was not and IS NOT our saviour: �I, yes I am YHVH! And beside ME there is NO SAVIOR! I have declared, and I have SAVED, and I have announced, and there was NO strange god among you! Therefore, YOU are My witnesses!� Isaiah 43:11-12.
Dear reader, two answers have been submitted to the question, �what must we do to be saved?� The first promulgated by the church, is believe on the lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!�
The second, given by YHVH the Elohim of Israel, Creator of Heaven and Earth, the ONE and ONLY Savior and King is, �Wash you, make you clean, put away the EVIL of your doings from before My Eyes; cease to DO EVIL, learn to DO WELL; seek justice, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow! Come now and let us reason together, says YHVH! Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. IF you be WILLING AND OBEDIENT�!� Isaiah 1:18-19.
The first easy, �magic� way is the way of god whose kingdom is not of this world; a god who taught us to resist not evil, a god of �make believe.�!
The second way is the only effective way to make this planet a veritable paradise; the way to YHVH�s very real, very actual Kingdom; the way of OBEDIENCE to YHVH�s LAW OF LIFE!
The choice is yours!
