According to Romans 5:12 we have all sinned; and the penalty of sin is death (Romans 6:23). However, it is Yahweh’s will that all should be saved, even the vilest of sinners. No sin is too great for Yahweh to forgive, and he has promised the gift of eternal life to all, which can be obtained only through Yahshua the Messiah, our redeemer.
Yes, we have sinned and fall short of Yahweh’s mercies, but our Heavenly Father knows of our shortcomings and is ready to forgive us. That is why he sent his son to die for us, so we can obtain eternal life if we believe in him. John 3:16, 17 says “For Yahweh so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For Elohim sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
In I Timothy 1:15, Paul reminds us “that Yahshua the Messiah came into the world to save sinners."
Yahshua said in Luke 5:32 “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Eternal life is available to everyone "and the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely," Revelation 22:17.
We are dependent on Yahshua the Messiah for our salvation. Yahshua said "I am the vine, ye are the branches: . . . for without me ye can do nothing," John 15:5. Yahshua is therefore “able to save them to the utmost that come unto Elohim by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them," Hebrews 7:25.
Invite Yahshua into your heart today and he is ready and prepared to forgive you for your sins.
After Abraham's death, Elohim blessed Isaac and renewed the covenant with him. In Genesis 26: 3-4 Elohim said to Isaac. “Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed. The covenant was made “Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” Genesis 26: 5.
Yahweh has promise to show mercy to all those who keep His commandments in Deuteronomy 7: 9 reads “Know therefore that Yahweh thy Elohim, he is Elohim, the faithful El, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations.”
In Luke 11:28, He has promised to pronounce a blessing on those who obey His word “… blessed are they that hear the word of Elohim, and keep it.”
While many live with the hope of eternal life, it is only those who keep His word will be allowed to enter the Kingdom. “Not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21. “For not the hearers of the law are just before Elohim, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” Romans 2:13
As we seek to do the will of Yahweh, let us be reminded that we are expected to keep all His commandments “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” James 2: 10.
John said in Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”
