The Gift of Life

                                       by Ed Moore

Yahuah loves everyone He created. He gives everyone this life on Earth as a gift. Yahuah then makes His sons a promise that requires an immense amount of faith. He offers eternal life as a gift for those that will give this life back to Him. We “give this life up” by denying our own selfish will and seeking His Will by obeying His Commandments.
We must serve His purposes and not our own. We are to give up our own will for this life and do the Will of our Father and submit our lives as living sacrifices to Him. Just like Yahusha did. That means… we are to submit to this life as a training ground for His Kingdom.
Luke 18
18 Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 19 So Yahusha said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but (the) One (Elohim), that is, Yahuah (Yahusha is declaring The Shema). 20 You know (to keep) the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’ (the Ten Commandments)” 21 And he said, “All these things I have kept from my youth.”
22 So when Yahusha heard these things, he said to the young ruler, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, FOLLOW ME.” 23 But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich.
24 And when Yahusha saw that he became very sorrowful, he said, “How hard it is for those who have riches (physical metaphor of richness of lives) to enter The Kingdom of Yahuah ! 25 For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man (a man with a richness of life to give this life up and) to enter The Kingdom of Yahuah.”
26 And those who heard it (realized he was not talking about rich as in money but rich meaningful earthly lives and) said, “Who then can be saved?” (Because giving up this life in hope of the next life is a huge leap of faith) 27 But Yahusha said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with Yahuah.” (you have to be chosen by Yahuah to be able to truly sacrifice this life in faith)
Now Yahusha clearly says he wasn’t talking about material wealth but richness of life in terms of family, friends, wives, and children
28 Then Peter said, “See, we have left all and followed You.” 29 So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of The Kingdom of Yahuah , 30 who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.”
As we give this life up and surrender to our training, study His Laws; we will apply ourselves in walking the example set by Yahusha. Exercising our authority given us as judges, declaring our birthright as sons of Yahuah, setting ourselves apart from this world with Yahuah by keeping His Sabbaths and Ordained Festivals, we will be transformed into living Temples of Yahuah.
1 Corinthians 6
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from Yahuah, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify Yahuah in your body and in your spirit, which are Yahuah’s.
We will be transformed into living stones uncut by human hands. Our hearts and minds are sanctified through the study of His Word and become altars to Yahuah upon which our spiritual sacrifices are offered:
I Peter 2:5
You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house…

The keeping of Passover to be saved from death was established clearly by the original Passover when Isaac was spared by a substitutionary ram (a male lamb). Then again in Egypt when the Angel of Death “passed over” those who had the blood of the lamb on their doorposts.
Yahusha made this clear as he kept Passover the day he died. John the Baptist made this point crystal clear when he saw Yahusha at his Mikveh and declared “Behold! The Passover Lamb of Yahuah”. The Apostle Paul makes this point clear instructing us in “how” to keep Passover, Peter stressed it, John the
Revelator showed us this in the Spirit;
Passover is truly the scarlet thread (blood) of redemption running from cover to cover in the Word of Yahuah beginning with Abraham and Isaac:
Luke 22:19
19 And when He had taken some bread and given thanks (at Passover), He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This (Passover Dinner) is My body (Passover Lamb) which is given (sacrificed) for you; do this (keep Passover) in remembrance of Me."
John 1:29
"Behold the (Passover) Lamb of Elohim, which taketh away the sin of the world."
John 1:36
"and he looked at Yahusha as He walked, and said, "Behold, the (Passover) Lamb of Elohim!"
1 Corinthians 5: 7-8
"Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For the Messiah, our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival (of Passover/Unleavened Bread), not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth."
1 Peter 1: 18-25
"For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of the Messiah, a (Passover) lamb without blemish or defect”
Revelation 5:6
"Then I saw a (Passover) Lamb, looking as if it had been slain.
Revelation 5:12
"In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the (Passover) Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!".
Revelation 5:13
"Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the throne and to the (Passover) Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!"
So we see the “proper” sacrifice for sin on The Altar of Yahuah (our hearts) is The Passover Lamb of YAHUAH, the Messiah Yahusha. We are to keep and put our faith in Passover each year as we “do this” in remembrance of The Messiah’s sacrifice. Keeping Passover is our spiritual sacrifice to Yahuah and in doing so, we are “covered by the Blood of the Lamb” and will be Passed Over the Second Death. This is the story of salvation told in the Bible.
Today, however, Christianity no longer puts their faith in Passover but rather “Easter”.
Christians abolish the law did away with the writings about Yahusha and Torah. They made up their own demi-god Jesus Christ (Hesus Krishna) and celebrate this demi-god on Christmas and make the abominable sacrifice Easter. Which makes the Passover Lambs blood that covers our sins non existent leading them to destruction.
Christianity has no foundation at all in Biblical Truth
Christianity (both Catholic and Protestant) has literally created a composite god and another gospel based totally on lies that have their beginning in the mystery religion of Babylon.
Christianity has given us a lie:
The Trinity/Jesus/Sunday/Christmas/Easter/abolishment of law
A lie totally contrary to The Truth and The Way found in scripture…
It really isn’t that hard. Just replace the pagan rituals with the true Festivals of YAHUAH; the ones actually IN The Bible.
Keep Sabbath not Sunday. Celebrate Passover not Easter. Call on the name of Yahusha not Jesus.
You are already doing the same amount of things! Just trade in the “way of the pagan gentiles” and stand up and be counted as one of The Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.
