As the Messiah was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching, and proceeding on His way to Jerusalem. When someone asked him, "Master, are there just a few who will be saved?" The Messiah answered him, "Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. Luke 13:22-24

The word 'strive' is the Greek wordagoĢ„nizomai# G75 in the Strong's Concordance. You'll notice it contains the root word 'agoniz'. What the Savior is telling us is that in order to inherit Eternal Life we have to make an agonizing effort to enter through that Narrow Gate.

Contrary to what the Christian ministers are teaching their followers today, salvation is not a matter of one's bowing their head and saying what's called a 'sinner's prayer'.

Six different times in the Gospels the Messiah tells us that we need to “lose our lives and allow him to live his life in us” if we hope to be saved on Judgment Day. (Mat 10:38-39; 16:24-25; Mar 8:34-35; Luk 9:23-24; 17:33; John 12:24-25)

The apostle Paul warns us in Phil 2:12 to “"... work out your salvation with fear and trembling;”

The apostle Peter asks the questionIf it is with difficulty that the Righteous are scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly man and the sinner  ? 1 Peter 4:18 . The answer is the sinners will not make it on Judgment Day.

The passages below make it clear that it was “sin” that the Messiah came to save us from, and no one who continues in sin will be saved. “Sin” is a violation of the Heavenly Father's Law, His Torah. Please consider carefully the following passages: 

When someone asked the Messiah "What must I do to inherit Eternal Life" unlike the Christian ministers of today who through their misunderstanding of the Scriptures tell their parishioners to bow their head and say a prayer, the Savior told the man to "keep the Commandments"

         Mat 19:16  "... what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?"
         Mat 19:17  "... if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."

The Messiah died to save us from "sin". 

Mat 1:21  "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Yahoshua, for He will save His people from their sins."
John 5:14  Afterward Yahoshua found him in the temple and said to him, "Behold, you have become well;
do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you."
John 8:11  She said, "No one, Lord." And Yahoshua said, "I do not condemn you, either.
Go. From now on sin no more."
1 John 3:5  You know that
He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

  •  Sin is a violation of the Heavenly Father Law, the Torah.

1 John 3:4  Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

  • Can those in the Messiah continue to sin, that is can they continue to violate Yahuweh's Law?  Let's allow the apostle Paul to answer that question.

Rom 6:1-2  What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? Yahuweh  forbid!  How shall we who died to sin still live in it?      

Rom 2:13  "... not the hearers of the law are just before Yahuweh, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

1 Cor 6:9  "...do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of Yahuweh?

  • "Righteousness" is obeying the commandments and "Sin" is violating the commandments

1 John 3:7- 8  Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous the one who practices sin is of the devil; ..... 

1 John 3:9-10 No one who is born of Yahuweh practices sin.... By this the children of Yahuweh and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of Yahuweh....

Deut 6:25  "It will be righteousness for us if we are careful to observe all this commandment before Yahuweh our Elohim, just as He commanded us.

Clearly the Savior died to save us from our sins, and not from his Father's Law. The Law given to Israel at Mount Sinai will endure "forever". Now in this age and in the age to come.

Matt 5:18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

Peter tells us that because of their lack of understanding in the Scriptures many people are twisting some of the things the apostle Paul said concerning the Heavenly Father's Law. things that even the apostle Peter found hard to understand, and consequently so did many of the Jews in his day, as does almost all of Christians today. And because of these "Hard Sayings of Paul" many Christians today are of the belief that they no longer have to obey the heavenly Father's Law, His Torah.  If you're one of those that think Paul spoke of the Law as not having to be obeyed please consider carefully Peter's warning.

2 Pet 3:15-17 "...our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, ...speaking in them of these things, in which are some things are hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of LAWLESS men and fall from your own steadfastness,

In verse 17 the word translated "lawless" is #113 in the Strong's Concordance. The KJV uses the word "wicked" and the NASV uses the word "unprincipled" but the literal meaning is "lawless". Who are these "Lawless" men that Peter is warning us about? It's the ministers who through their misunderstanding of some of the things the apostle Paul said, are misleading their congregations into thinking that the Heavenly Father's Law no longer has to be obeyed. And as Peter tells us the lawless ministers and their congregations will be destroyed on Judgement Day   

The Messiah tells us that many on Judgement Day will find out when it's to late that because of their disobedience to the Law they will be cast out.

Mat 7:22  "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'

Mat 7:23  "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' 

The apostle Paul tells us in words that are hard to misunderstand that those who live without the Law, such as most of Christianity today, will perish without the Law. He goes on to say that it's not those who 'hear' the Law that will be justified but rather it's those who do the Law that will be justified. Rom 2:11-13 

Rom 2:11  For there is no partiality with Yahuweh.
Rom 2:12  For all who have sinned without the Law (the Christian) will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law (the non-believing Jew) will be judged by the Law;
Rom 2:13  for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before Yahuweh, but the doers of the Law (the followers of Messiah 1 John 2:3-6) will be justified.

The Heavenly Father's Name

Exo 3:15  Elohim, furthermore, said to Moses, "Yahuweh, ....' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.

Did you know that the Heavenly Father put His Name in His book, the Bible, over 6,823 times? Why is it than that most people that read the Bible, Jew and Christian alike, never heard of the Almighty's Name? Is it important that you know the heavenly Fathe's Name? You be the judge Click here to read the articles and view the video.

Psa 83:18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is Yahuweh, Are the Most High over all the earth.

Isa 52:6 "Therefore My people shall know My name; therefore in that day I am the one who is speaking, 'Here I am.'"

       Mal 3:16 Then those who feared Yahuweh spoke to one another, and Yahuweh gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear Yahuweh and who esteem His name.

       Mat 6:9 "Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

       Rom 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "for this very purpose I raised you up, to demonstrate my power in you and that My Name might be proclaimed throughout the whole earth."

Shocking but true - the Savior NEVER heard the name 'Jesus' !

 Are you aware that the letter “J” did not exist in any language on the face of the      earth until the year 1520 A.D., And was not in popular use for roughly another 100 years. Even in the year 1611, when the original King James Bible was written the letter 'J' was not in popular use, for it is not found in the King James Bible of 1611 not one time. Let me repeat that, “the original 1611 King James Bible does not contain the letter 'J' not even one time. If the letter 'J' didn't exist until the year 1520, and was never used in the 1611 King James Bible, than how could the Messiah's name have been pronounce “Jesus”? The answer is “it wasn't”. The One who died for the sins of Israel was never called by the name 'Jesus', nor did he or anyone else in his day ever hear the name 'Jesus'. Why? Because the name 'Jesus' would not have existed for roughly another 1,500 years. With that being the case then what name was Peter talking about when he said

Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

If the name whereby we must be saved is not 'Jesus' which it cannot be since that name did not exist when Peter made that statement, what is the name by which we must be saved? For the answer as to what name was the Messiah was/is called by click here.

"I said you are elohim (g-ds)"  John 10:34

The Messiah asked the Pharisees "If He, that is the Heavenly Father, called them elohim (g-ds) to whom the word of Elohim (G-d) came..."

Who are these elohim (g-ds) that the Father was referring to? Most Christians and Jews are unaware of the fact that "the judges of Israel, Moses, angels and Samuel the prophet" are all referred to as "elohim" or "gods", as it is translated in many Bibles? Find out the reason why "click here"  

                         The Trinity

 

With billions of Christians believing in a Triune god, that is a 3 in 1 god known as the  "Trinity" one would think that it's talked about throughout the entire Bible, and yet the fact is it's never mentioned in the Bible, not one single time. Why is that? Click Here to find out the answer.

What 'must' we believe about the Messiah !

Please turn in your Bble to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. 
Please turn in your Bible to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. Can't  find it? How about the passage that tells us that the Messiah is the 2nd person of the Triune godhead? You say "That's not there either"?  How about the passage that calls him "god the son". No, again that term is never found in the Bible. You're not going to find any of those phrases ever mentioned in the Bible and yet that is exactly what the majority of Christianity today  believes.

If such terms as god/man, god the son. or the 2nd person of the Triune godhead are never mentioned in the Bible then what exactly are we told to believe about the Messiah Yahoshua? In this article we'll be taking a look at everything the Bible tells us about the Messiah and what it is we MUST believe about Him in order to be saved, many things that most people never even notice before.  To view the artiflce "click here".  

 

 "I and the Father are One" John 10:30

 Before we take a look at how the Savior meant for us to understand how he and the Father are one, there's a couple of things I'd like to point out first. 

How many beings or persons does it take to make up a triune god, or Trinity? Of course the answer is ' 3.'  How many persons, or beings does the Savior tells "are one"? The answer is, "I and My Father are one."  If anything the Messiah 'disproved' the idea of a 'triune'  or 3 in 1 god with his statement. If Yahoshua was part of a triune god he would have said, "I and the Father and the Holy Spirit are one."  But of course neither he, nor anyone else in the Bible ever said such a thing.

The concept of a 'Trinity' was not only never mentioned in the entire Bible, the very first time in history that anyone ever suggested such a thing, as far as the Scriptures are concerned, was in the year 200 A.D. by a man named Tertullian, one of the so-called 'early church fathers'.  And from that time until now 'trinitarians' have been trying to harmonize such a belief with the Bible by using a handfull of passages, always taken out of context. All of those passages will be discussed on this website, 'theremnantofisrael.org'.  

Even though Yahoshua made it clear on numerous occasions while on earth, and afterwards, that his Father, Yahuweh, is the Only True God (John 17:3; 20:17; Matt 27:46; 1 Cor 8:6; 1 Time 2:5; Rev 3:2,12, etc) so many refuse believe it. And one of the passages used in an attempt to deny the words of the Savior is found in John 10:30. So with a desire to find "truth" rather than continue on in a tradition let's take a look it. 

I think it will become extremely obvious in this article that the Messiah is in no way trying to make himself out to be part of a 2 in 1, or 3 in 1 god, in which it is said he's the second part of. 

If the Messiah was not trying to imply that he and his Father "are one" in the sense of them both being part of a "godhead" then what did he mean by saying that he and his Father are "one"?  Turn, if you would, to John 17 and we're going to read verses 3, 11, and 21-23. (You might want to mark these passages in your Bible)

In John 17:3, "This is Eternal Life, that they might know YOU, Father, the only True Elohim (G-d), and Yahoshua the Messiah, whom you sent"

Yahoshua's starts his prayer to His Heavenly Father, by making it clear to all those who will hear him, that He IS NOT the Only True Elohim (G-d), but rather His Father, Yahuweh is. And He, Yahoshua the Messiah, is the one whom the Only True Elohim, Yahuweh, has sent. To know and believe this, according to the Savior, is Eternal Life.

In verse 11, of chap 17, the Savior, tells us: John 17:11, "And I am no more in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to you, Holy Father, keep them in your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one, even as we are one"

In what sense are we to be 'one' even as the Yahuweh, the Father, and Yahoshua, the Messiah, are 'one'?   We'll take a look at the answer in a moment. But if you would please drop down to verses 21 -23 of the same chapter,

Jn 17:21-23, "...that they may all be one;even as You Father, are in Me, and I in you, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that You did send Me. And the glory which You have given Me I have given to them; that they may be one, 'just as We are one'; I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that You did love Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, in order that they may behold My glory, which You have given Me; for You did love Me before the foundation of the world, O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You did send Me..."

There is so much that the Savior said here that we can discuss in more detail, such as the fact that glory which the Father gave to the Messiah, He gave that glory to His disciples, and of course THIS IS NOT the glory that was His because He was part of a Trinity, or co-equal with the Father, who He just got through telling His disciples was the "Only True Elohim (G-d)," in vs 3. If it was such a 'glory', making the Messiah equal with the Father, than I'm sure there are those that would come up with all kinds of wild ideas. Such as the Mormons for example, who use this very passage to say "they" are all going to be 'gods' some day, ruling over their own planets. I hope that sounds as bizarre to you as it does to me. But that is exactly how so many people through their misunderstanding of a passage develop such unscriptural concepts. The Trinity would be another one of the concepts that developed through people's misunderstanding of certain passages.

The fact is, that the "glory" which the Father gave to the Son, the Son gave to His disciples. We'll talk more about 'His Gory' in another article, but what we want to focus on for the moment is the fact that the disciples are to be one. How are they to be one? 'JUST AS THE FATHER AND SON ARE ONE,' we are to be one with them. Vs 22.

Now if we can understand in what sense the Father, Yahuweh and His Son, Yahoshua, and are one, it should become clear in what sense we, the disciples, are to be one, with them.

1) We are to be one with Yahoshua and the Father, in doctrine, or teaching.

  • 2John 1:9 "Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in 'the teaching of Messiah,' does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son,"

Of course one of the primary teachings of the Messiah is that His Father, is His Elohim (G-d), (John 20:17; Rev 3:2,12) and His Father is, the "Only" True God, (John 17:3).

For anyone to go beyond this and say that the 'Only True Elohim (G-d)' is actually made up of a 2 in 1, or a 3 in 1 god, known as a trinity, in which the Savior is the 2nd part of, is not abiding in the teaching of the Messiah, and does not have Elohim (G-d). As the apostle John just stated above.  For NEVER does the Savior or anyone else in the bible ever ask us to believe that the Almighty is anyone other then the Heavenly Father, Yahuweh.

  • 1 Cor 1:3,10; "Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Master(Lord) Yahoshua the Messiah,...Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Master Yahoshua the Messiah, that you all agree, and there be no divisions among you, but you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment."

Obviously one of the things that the Corinthians agreed on, was that the 'Elohim' (G-d) mentioned here, or any where else in the bible, was not a Trinity.

2) We are to be forgiving towards one another as Yahuweh is towards us

  • Matt 6:14-15; For if you forgive men for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if do not forgive men, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions."

  • Eph 4:32; "And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Messiah also has forgiven you"

3) We, believers, should be one, in are love for one another.

  • John 17:23; I in them, and Thou in Me. that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and didst love them, even as Thou didst love Me"

  • John 13:34; "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another"

4) We should "walk even as He (the Savior), walked," 1 Jn 2:6, with the same attitude that He had, that not our will be done, but Yahuweh's will be done.

  • Matt 26:39, "My Father if it be possible let this cup pass from me, yet not my will but your will be done."

  • Jn 7:17, If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of Elohim, OR whether I speak from Myself.

In other words, 'one in unity of purpose.'

In conclusion, the Savior in John 10:30, COULD NOT be implying that He and His Father are one in the sense that they make up a the 3 in 1 god of the Trinity, for they are only 2, NOT 3. And in whatever way the Savior and his Father are one, he clearly tells us - we are to be one "just as they are one" - John 17:11,22.

The Messiah Yahoshua's prayer to the Heavenly Father did not go unanswered. His followers are one, in the manner described above, "just as" He and the Father are one. For we are commanded to "walk even as the Savior walked" (1 John 2:6)

If you've come to believe the words of the Savior in that his Father is the Only True Elohim won't you please join us in worshiping the Father in spirit and Truth?

For an explanation on the remainder of this passage, and who the 'gods' were that the Savior referred to in verse, 34-35, see the article, "I said you are elohim (or gods)."
