There are teachings that teach one can be saved, receive eternal life in shamayim (pw heaven) if we simply believe in Elohim (pw God) and that there is no need to believe in the Messiah Yah'ushua (pw Jesus).
This is commonly taught by Judaism ,( Orthodox) Rabbis and by the pope who also encourages these Jews in their error. It would of course be taught by Islam too ( which is a catholic invention so it is no surprise). There is an ecumenical belief that there are many ways to paradise but to this we would answer, there are many roads that lead to destruction, to Rome which will be destroyed. ( see Whose Calender Do You Follow? to see where the roads will lead to at the end times according to prophet Zechariah).
Let us simply hear what the Messiah says himself regarding salvation. Decide based on fact rather than interpretation by false teachers of false religions.
There is an everlasting covenant made between Abraham and Yah'uah (pw the LORD). It is Messiah Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) who has confirmed this covenant by his death and resurrection which replaces animal offering for atonement. This was prophesied by prophet Daniel. Mohamed has not done any such thing and the fake "Jesus" is said to have abolished the law which Yah'ushua has not done either. He has confirmed the law of the covenant of his Father made with Abraham for all nations who belive and obey.
Prophet Moses prophesied that whosoever does not listen to the Messiah would be destroyed :
Acts 3: 22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall Yah'uah (pw the LORD)your Elohim (pw God) raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. 23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words (To'rah) which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
The very title "prophet" immediately demands two criteria according to the rules of To'rah. A true prophet:
1) CANNOT add to To'rah
2) CANNOT remove from To'rah
Deut 13: 1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yah’uah(pw the LORD) your Elohim (pw God) proveth you, to know whether ye love the Master (pw Lord) your Elohim (pw God) with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 Ye shall walk after Yah’uah (pw the LORD) your Elohim (pw God), and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
Messiah did not teach to anyone to worship a To'rahless Elohim (pw God)
The fake Christian Messiah "Jesus" ( J-Zeus / J-Esus) abolishes the law and the fake Muslim Prophet Mohamed is said to replace him because this Christian "Jesus" is false (rightly so ) yet Mohamed is no better since he also did not teach or do To'rah of Moses (eg. profaned 4th commandment - shabbat keeping, does not wear blue tassels and allows eating unclean foods which To'rah forbids, to name a few) he also added to To'rah of course via the Quran. So who is left? It is only the true To'rah keeping Messiah Yah'ushuah who was originally prophesied, not the To'rahless imposters who add and remove from To'rah.
Shaul (Paul) did not support a fake Messiah, neither a Muslim Mohamed neither a Christian /Catholic "Jesus" . Shaul only endorses the one who is like Moses who preaches To'rah like the prophet Moses and that is Yah'ushua of the true scriptures. Shaul has told us that Messiah Yah'ushua is the last Adam that redeems us from the sin of the first Adam
1Co 15:46 The spiritual, however, was not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.
1Co 15:47 The first man was of the earth, earthy; the second Man is the Master (pw Lord) from shamayim ( pw heaven).
there can be no other saviour and prophet that replaces the LAST Adam who is Messiah Yah'ushua. No To'rahless Mohamed can replace this LAST ADAM from shamayim (pw heaven) who died and was raised by his Father and ascended to shamayim and who will return and judge the To'rahless and those that do not believe.
Thus Messiah himself confirms he is the prophet that fulfills the prophet Moses's prophecy about him concerning the To'rah .Thus Shaul is confirming the To'rah-teaching and keeping Messiah, not a To'rahless Christian or Muslim one.
5:17 Think not
that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to
destroy, but to fulfil (Greek pleroo -full preach, accomplish, verify)
18 For verily I say unto you, Till shamayim (pw heaven) and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: .
No will (pw testament) promising inheritance is effective without the death of the person who has signed the will. We are then the inheritors who believe in the appointed devisor( pw testator) who is Messiah Yah'ushuah. He, appointed by his Father, chose to die and signed the everlasting covenant, as it were, with his own blood based on To'rah. He had to confirm the everlasting covenant of his Father based on To'rah commands. Yah'ushuah did not come to falsify what his Father taught. So if you believe or claim to believe in Messiah's existence then you must also believe what he says and obey and teach what he teaches from his Father ie To'rah.
The Son (Yah'ushuah- Yah is our saviour) did not come to do away with To'rah but to magnify it and make it honourable as prophesied by prophet Isaiah (YeshaYahu=Yah is salvation):
Here Messiah has shown the nature of Elohim in action by example [he is not Elohim (pw God) See Why Jesus is not God].
1) Yah'uah must be heard and obeyed
Deut 13:4 Ye shall walk after Yah’uah (pw the LORD) your Elohim (pw God), and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
2) And hearing and obeying his sent prophet Messiah Yah'ushuah who preaches his To'rah
teaches that there is another way besides accepting the
To'rah and obeying it as taught by both Messiah and his Father is a
liar. Some false teachers who preach such a lie are the
following: the Vatican, the Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu, American
Evangelist, Author and Film-maker Bishop TD Jakes, Evangelist Billy
Graham, Tele-Evangelist Joel Osteen etc... Many of them claim that
Messiah has another "fold" meaning that there is another way to the
Father. This is heresy. Messiah only speaks of lost sheep that need to
be brought to the one and only fold. He is the one and only voice
speaking the one and only To'rah. He is the one and only shepherd that
his Father has sent to die for his sheep. There is no other way for a man,
otherwise the "wrath of Yah'uah
abideth on him" (Jn 3:33).
No Christianity, Protestantism, Catholicism, Charismania,
Pentacostalism, Lutheranism. Evangelicism, Methodism, Adventism,
Calvinism. Mahomedism, Judaism etc etc, no "ism" is going to save you.
In fact you are most
likely headed to gehenna (pw hell) on a path of To'rahless confusion.
It must be the Hebrew Messiah that you follow, sent by the Father of
To'rah. It must be To'rah that you obey!
10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice (preaching one To'rah); and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
Jn 10:1 1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold (one and only), but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.An important note as well:
We have to believe in both the Father and the Son not that the Father is the Son. If that were true then we would not have to accept and believe that Messiah was obedient to his Father's law (To'rah) by the Spirit of his Father even to his death (the omnipotent eternal immortal Yah'uah Elohim cannot die, cannot be tempted and is not a man). Please see our Featured article: Why Jesus is Not God. The deceptive "Jesus is God" heresy would result in believing in one and the same single being thus contradicting Messiah who has clearly said you must believe in the Messiah AND the Father. They are not one and the same but preach the same!
