One Faith

By Bro. Robert Stringer

Greetings in the Name of Yahshua the Messiah. I'm writing this message to show how unity in the assembly of believers has been lost. So, if you trust and believe in the Word, please continue to read this message which will show biblically who the true believers are. What is Truth? Who should we follow? What is Unity?

The first question we have to ask is this: What is TRUTH? According to John 17:17 and Psalm 119:142, the Word of Yah and the Law of Yah is Truth, which came directly from Him (2 Pet. 1:20-21, 2 Tim. 3:16-17). Only He gives understanding of His Word (Job 32:8, Lk. 24:45, Mat. 16:17). We are not to depart from the way He has revealed to us (Acts 24:14).

Now the next question is easily answered. Who do we follow? We follow Yahweh's Word and Law. Yahshua being His Word in the flesh, the One who became our living example, showing us how to keep that Law, is our Leader and we are to follow Him. We also follow leaders AS they follow Yahshua (1 Cor. 11:1, 1 Thes. 1:6, 2:14).

We are to be ONE body of Believers, but how can that be, with all the different sects, denominations, doctrines,  opinions, etc, that we find in the assemblies today? All of these differences show a breach in unity, lack of under-standing, and people not following Yahweh's Word. This is why we have so many counterfeit religions. They are false because they do not line up with, nor adhere to, the Word of Yah revealed through the Bible and in the person of Yahshua the Messiah. The Word says, "Broad is the way that leads to destruction (Mat. 7:13), but Narrow is the Way that leads to Life (v. 14)."

So, if there are many ways that lead to destruction, why do we see many ways in the world? Satan has really been working overtime in his deception. Just look at all these different people professing to be right. Who really is right?

According to the Word, there is only one kind of True Believer. Those who have the faith and testimony of Yahshua the Messiah, AND, are keeping the Command-ments of Yahweh (Rev. 12:17 and Rev. 14:12). So, we are to follow the Word, if we are TRUE Believers! The Word also says that many will claim to know Yahshua (Truth), but He will say that He never knew them (Mat. 7:21-23). Even though they thought they knew Him, they were not obedient to the Word. Are we really as obedient to the Word as we can be? Do we try to adhere to the Word? Or do we just follow people not knowing the Truth at all? Maybe these are the questions we should ask ourselves, and then ask Yahweh to reveal Himself to us. We can only know Truth by allowing Him to show us through His Spirit, and by studying the Word (Jn. 14:26, 2Tim. 2:15).

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, it hurts me dearly to see Yahweh's people not in one accord as it was in the beginning. See Acts 2:42-47. Many have lost their way and/or were taught the wrong way. But right now, every eye that reads these words Yahweh is calling His people home. He is calling us back to the Faith once delivered to the Apostles long ago that few still follow today. Think on these two scriptures as I close: Acts 17:30: And the times of this ignorance Elohim winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Rev 18:3-4:  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

He has looked past what you didn't know, but you know now. So what are you going to do? Will you pray to Mary, even though the Word says praay to the Father (Yahweh), in Yahshua's Name? (Mat. 6:9, After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.) John 16:23, And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Will you follow the Word? Or will you be spit out of His mouth for being lukewarm? (Rev. 3:15-16). We must overcome (Rev. 3:21). Today Yahweh has given me this message:

Deut. 30:15-19, " See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love Yahweh thy Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and Yahweh thy Elohim shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish,  and that  ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, w hither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

It's up to you to choose!! James (Yakob) 1:22 tells us, "Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves," and James 2:17, "Faith without works is dead."

He who has an ear, let him hear! My prayer is for the believers to hear the Truth and obey Yahweh's Will. Thank you, brothers and sisters. Bro. Robert Stringer, Waynesburg, PA ~
