Part of Yahweh's plan of Salvation is to help us develop character. Character, integrity,
and honesty, along with our intellect (including memory), is the only things from this life that we can expect
to take over into the life to come.
Our bodies are scheduled to rest in the grave at death, where we will lie until the resurrection, or else be changed
at His coming, if we are still alive at that time. If we are called and chosen in this life, we must learn to
obey Him. We must develop good character, overcome bad habits and eliminate the sin in our lives. We must have
His Holy Spirit to do this, and to inherit eternal life.
Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Yahweh dwell in you. Now if
any man have not the Spirit of The Messiah, he is none of his.
And in order to have His Holy Spirit dwelling in us, we must obey.
Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Spirit, whom Yahweh hath given to them
that obey him.
I have heard people say many times, "let your conscience be your guide." But in building good character,
is our conscience a reliable guide? Can it be trusted? No, not unless it has been properly trained. And proper
training can only come from a proper source. The only source for sound moral training with a perfect law as our
guide, is the Bible, as given by the Creator. And that perfect law is the Ten Commandments. Briefly, the first
Four of the Ten tell us how to relate to our Creator, Yahweh, and the last Six of the Ten, tell us how to relate
to our fellow-man.
Since the Ten Commandments and any teachings about the Creator were removed from the schools, the courts, and
very nearly every other place, including the home and some churches, an entire generation of so-called "baby-boomers"
has grown up without this knowledge. Now their children are growing up, even more ignorant and lawless than they
were, and we as a nation are in DEEP trouble.
Just by watching the evening news or reading a newspaper, we can see that there are all too many people who have
no conscience at all. Or one that has been trained in front of the TV set, in the movie theatre, or on the mean
streets of our scabs called cities. Gang violence, drug use, individuals doing violent things, fornication among
the young, with the resultant abortions, and rampant homosexuality are just some of the evil results of our new
national "no-law, no-fault" policies. And everyone it seems, especially politicians, are "out to
get theirs" while the getting is good. The sentiment has been, "there are no absolutes. If it seems
good to YOU, then DO it.
Many now say that our President's character doesn't matter, "as long as he's doing a good job." How
can someone do a "good job," and yet be immoral? It is impossible. What they mean is, "as long
as I get mine, let's not make waves."
Yahweh sent a Savior, His own Son, Yahshua, to save us from this mess. He taught a different way. He said we
can be saved by accepting His sacrifice for our sins, and then keeping that eternal moral law, the Ten Commandments.
He said it is better to give than to receive. He said we should put others before ourselves. He came to serve,
and He called us to be servants - to serve others.
He is coming again soon, to put down this unparalleled lawlessness. Our whole system has corrupted itself. Good
is being called evil, and evil is being called good. They will even fight against Him when He returns, according
to the Book of Revelation.
But a small group, called the "Firstfruits," is being prepared to serve with Him at His coming. These
are those who "have the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah, and keep the Commandments of Yahweh." (Rev.
12:17, 14:12, 22:14). He said, "IF ye will enter into life, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS."
As we begin to do these things, we will gain maturity and strength, just like a baby does as he/she begins to grow
up. We will be able to discern right from wrong, and will not be at the mercy of the satanic manipulators in our
society who would use us for their own evil purposes.
Will you join with us and thousands of others, to accept Him as our Savior and soon-coming king, and then begin
keeping His Commandments? To have faith that what He has promised, He is able to fulfill? If you will, then begin
studying the Scriptures and let THEM be your guide. They "are able to make you wise unto salvation through
faith which is in the Messiah Yahshua", 2 Timothy 3:15. Then heed the Apostle Peter's admonition in Acts
2:38, to "repent and be baptized in the Name of Yahshua the Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Then, and only then, will your conscience be a reliable guide. Our
character must reflect His perfect character; we must yield this carnal nature to the divine.
