One Torah For All

One Torah shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
Exodus 12:49

I have told you in advance."

Plan of Salvation

I firmly believe that I would be remiss in my duties and call as a follower of Yeshua Messiah, if I did not include this section in this book. It is so very important that a person confess their sins before YHWH and man now, while there is some freedom to do so without life threatening implications. This becomes even more urgent as the time of the great tribulation draws ever nearer.

Step 1: Realize that YHWH is reaching out to you. You, in turn, become aware of the need in your life. That is, you are a sinner and are not worthy of having eternal life.

Romans 5:8
But YHWH commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us.

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of YHWH;

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of YHWH is eternal life through Yeshua Messiah ourYHWH.

2 Peter 3:9
YHWH is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.[47]

Step 2: Once you have become aware of your need to have your sins forgiven, you must realize that this involves a moral choice, either to accept what YHWH says about you, and His remedy for your sin problem, namely, His Son, Yeshua Messiah, who died and shed His Blood for you, that you may receive the forgiveness of sins in your life. The other option is for you to reject YHWH’s plan of salvation for you and His Son Yeshua, thereby, rejecting eternal life.

John 3:36
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of YHWH abideth on him.

Step 3: Once you understand the need in your life, once you understand that you have a moral choice to make, then you must make the decision either to accept or reject Him. No one can make this decision for you. Only you can decide! Moreover, you will stand one day before the Judgment seat of YHWH and give an accounting of whether or not you have accepted YHWH’s wonderful gift of salvation that Yeshua purchased with His own Blood upon the cross of Calvary.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Romans 10:9, 10
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Master Yeshua, and shalt believe in thine heart that YHWH hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Revelation 3:20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Once you have made the decision to accept Yeshua Messiah as your personal Savior, just pray a simple prayer of confession, agreeing with YHWH that you are a sinner; and ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and then believe that He has done it. Then, live according to His commandments (Torah) and learn to hear and obey His Voice.

1 John 5:14, 15
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Once a person has confessed, repented, and trusted in Yeshua Messiah; then YHWH does His part, He does that which He promised to do.

Forgiveness: He pardons from the penalty of sin.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Acts 10:43
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Justification: This is a legal act that satisfies the Law of YHWH. That act places the person who has confessed his sins into a just state before the judgment seat of YHWH; not by one’s own merits, but rather by and through the righteousness of Yeshua, applied to your life through His Blood.

Romans 3:25 (NIV)
YHWH presented Him [Yeshua] as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in His Blood. He did this to demonstrate His justice.

Regeneration: YHWH brings new life in Messiah; one is “born-again.”

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold,all things are become new.

John 3:3
Yeshua answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of YHWH.

John 5:25
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the Voice of the Son of YHWH: and they that hear shall live.

Adoption: YHWH adopts you into His family and accepts you as His own son, with all the privileges that come with it.

Galatians 4:7
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of YHWH through Messiah.

Romans 8:16, 17
The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of YHWH: and if children, then heirs; heirs of YHWH, and joint-heirs with Messiah; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

If you have gone through the steps above, and have accepted Yeshua Messiah as your personal Savior, I would like to encourage you to find a Shabbat keeping, Scripture believing, Scripture preaching, teaching, and obeying fellowship where you can become an active part of that local fellowship, where you can be immersed in Yeshua’s name into the family of YHWH. May YHWH richly bless you as you seek Him and seek to do His will.

[47] To repent, simply means to turn from one’s sins and go the other direction. Instead of living lawlessly, away from Messiah, one now wants to please Him and to do His will (keep Torah), rather than his own. It is not just being sorry for your sins, although that is part of it; but it is also no longer doing those things that are displeasing to YHWH.
