Faith Produces Action

                                         Contributed by Ed Moore

When true faith is present action will be the result
Suppose I said I believed in something. Wouldn't the proof of my belief be the action it produced in my life? No action no faith.
We have all been taught in Christianity that we are saved by faith not by works of The Law. It is a true statement that we are saved by faith, however we need to know what faith is to understand what that means.
Faith, by definition, is expressed through keeping The Law of Yahuah and believing in the promises made in Scripture which is The Torah and Prophets.
In Scripture (the Torah and Prophets) Yahuah promised us:
eternal life for obedience
death for transgression
a Passover Lamb to cover our transgression
a Sabbath Rest
A Sabbath Resurrection
Sacrifices to cover our sin (transgression of His Law) to be made by the High Priest
A marriage covenant whereby he would give us a loving spirit of obedience to His Law which would be transposed into our hearts
Simply “saying you have faith” and not backing that faith up with action in keeping Yahuah’s commandments is dead faith. Christians are willingly ignorant of this fact and choose to believe all they need is to believe in Jesus Christ (the false messiah) and nothing else is required of them.
Jas 1:22 And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves
Heb 6:11 And we desire that each one of you show the same eagerness(in keeping The Law of Yahuah), to the entire confirmation of expectation until the end,
Heb 6:12 in order that you do not become sluggish(keeping The Law), but imitate those who through belief and patience inherit the promises
2Pe 1:4 Through these there have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, so that through these you might be partakers of the Mighty-like nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world, caused by lust.
2Pe 1:5 And for this reason do your utmost to add to your belief uprightness, to uprightness knowledge,
2Pe 1:6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control endurance, to endurance reverence,
2Pe 1:7 to reverence brotherly affection, and to brotherly affection love. ,
Rom 15:4 For whatever was written before was written for our instruction, that through endurance and encouragement of the Scriptures we might have the expectation
2Co 7:1 Having, then, these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and spirit, perfecting set-apartness in the fear of Elohim.
James 1:12
12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that Yahuah has promised to those who love him (to love Yahuah is to keep His Law 1 John 5:3).
1Jn 2:24 As for you, let that stay in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning (the Torah and Prophets) stays in you(written on your heart) , you also shall stay in the Son and in the Father.
1Jn 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us(in The Torah): everlasting life.
Jas 2:14 My brothers, what use is it for anyone to say he has belief but does
not have works? This belief is unable to save him.
What did YAHUAH say about WHO are His people? He gives three requirements in Isaiah 56:6-8...To love His Name, honor His Sabbath and keep His covenant (Torah):
Isa 56:6 “Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to יהוה, to serve Him, and to love the Name of יהוה, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My covenant –
Isa 56:7 them I shall bring to My set-apart mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their slaughterings are accepted on My altar, for My house is called a house of prayer for all the peoples.”
Isa 56:8 The Master יהוה, who gathers the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl, declares, “I gather still others to him besides those who are gathered to him.”
There's more to having a relationship with YAHUAH than just "believing in YAHUSHA." The thing is, our Creator has some rules to follow, and if we refuse, then we don't belong to Him.
If you say you have faith and don’t express it through keeping The Law you are a liar and your faith is dead.
