God’s Love is not for sale and you can’t earn a ticket to Heaven
by works or good deeds or wealth or fame or human intellect.
God’s Love is like His Grace; Unconditional and Eternal!
We have His undeserved kindness and love no matter who or
what we are. Eventhough we’ve sinned and not a penny to our
name; He’s ever ready there to forgive us when we repent of
our sins truthfully and honestly from the heart.
God doesn’t measure or grade us according to our intellect
nor our good deeds nor our works and certainly not our
bank accounts but only through our love for Him; whether it
is genuine and whole-heartedly.
Be consistent in contact with Almighty God for He sits in the
Heavens above and that should be the key to remind ourselves
that we are on earth below. We are just mere mortals, kind of
like vapor that’s here one minute and gone in another. On that
note, we should strive not to be proud, arrogant or boastful at all.
Let us adopt a humble attitude and God will exalt us in due time.
“Forming light and creating darkness, making peace and creating calamity,
I, Jehovah, am doing all these things.” – Isaiah 45:7

Wait expectantly for His Miracles, Be in Awe of His Creation
of the whole Universe. Meditate on His Holy Words! God’s
words fills, nourishes, rejuvenates and refreshes our souls and
senses like mountain dew; it is His Love for us in the 66 books
of the Bible; it’s His loving letters of guidance to us. God’s love
for us in Christ Jesus keeps flowing like the river that never
runs dry if we ourselves never stop loving Him.
“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any
double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and
spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes
of the heart.”
Even the Lord Byron in his quote, “I have drunk every cup of
pleasure, and I have quaffed every cup of fame, and yet alas,
I die of thirst!”; realized and lamented that his thirst can
only be quenched by the Living and One True God Jehovah
and His only Begotten Sinless Son, Jesus Christ, our Messiah.
Though he found pleasure, fame and fortune; he was still
empty and starving, he was craving for Almighty God’s love
which can be gotten only through Jesus, the Bread of Life,
the only Way and Truth to God.
“Jesus said to him: “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Micah : 6 : 8
“He has told you, O earthling man, what is good. And what is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?”
Our Almighty One True Eternal God has blessed us in so many ways, in return, He has asked of us to exercise justice in whatever circumstances, be compassionate, be kind, honest in our dealings and also to be humble in all our ways in walking with Him.
Isaiah : 45 : 21-24
“Turn to ME and be saved, all YOU [at the] ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no one else. By my own self I have sworn—out of my own mouth in righteousness the word has gone forth, so that it will not return—that to me every knee will bend down, every tongue will swear, saying, “Surely in Jehovah there are full righteousness and strength.”
There is no other God besides ME, I AM the One True Eternal & Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh, a Righteous God and Savior.
Psalms : 129 : 4
“Jehovah is righteous. He has cut in pieces the ropes of the wicked ones.”
God hates those that practices wickedness and those that are evil at heart, He will certainly annihilate them and they’ll be remembered no more.
Proverbs : 12 : 28
“In the path of righteousness there is life, and the journey in its pathway means no death.”
Proverbs : 11 : 3-4
“The integrity of the upright ones is what leads them, but distortion by those dealing treacherously will despoil them. Valuable things will be of no benefit on the day of fury, but righteousness itself will deliver from death.”
Proverbs : 15 : 9
“The way of the wicked one is something detestable to Jehovah, but the one pursuing righteousness He loves.”
God detest wickedness but loves righteousness!
Proverbs : 28 : 5
“Men given to badness cannot understand judgment, but those who are seeking Jehovah can understand everything.”
Isaiah : 61 : 1-3
“The spirit of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah is upon me, for the reason that Jehovah has anointed me to tell good news to the meek ones. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to those taken captive and the wide opening [of the eyes] even to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of goodwill on the part of Jehovah and the day of vengeance on the part of our God; to comfort all the mourning ones; to assign to those mourning over Zion, to give them a headdress instead of ashes, the oil of exultation instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the downhearted spirit; and they must be called big trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, for [him] to be beautified.”
Jehovah God in Christ Jesus has appointed anointed ones to proclaim the good news of His name and His Glory to the whole world.
Hosea : 10 : 12
“Sow seed for yourselves in righteousness; reap in accord with loving-kindness. Till for yourselves arable land, when there is time for searching for Jehovah until He comes and gives instruction in righteousness to YOU.”
2 Timothy : 4 : 8
“From this time on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me as a reward in that day, yet not only to me, but also to all those who have loved his manifestation.”
A crown is reserved! A crown of Righteousness, waiting in the heavens, for those who loves our Almighty Eternal One True God Jehovah/Yahweh and His Only Begotten Son, Jesus/Yahshua, our Messiah.
Proverbs : 16 : 6
“By loving-kindness and trueness error is atoned for, and in the fear of Jehovah one turns away from bad.”
In the fear of our Lord God Jehovah/Yahweh, one will indeed slide away from doing wickedness and crookedness because by that awe of fear in Him, we are bestowed with wisdom and understanding so that we can distinguish right from wrong.
Proverbs : 14 : 27
“The fear of Jehovah is a well of life, to turn away from the snares of death.”
Romans : 15 : 9-13
Paul welcomes the non-Israelites, the Gentiles, to the knowledge of the One True God Jehovah/Yahweh, telling them to be glad of that and always be in praising the name of our Almighty Eternal True God Jehovah and openly acknowledging and proclaiming His Holy name. In return, God will bless them bountifully. Paul also bore the good news about Jesus/Yahshua, our Messiah, the root of Jesse, the one who will rule the nations and where all the hope of the world rests.
James : 2 : 13
“For the one that does not practice mercy will have [his] judgment without mercy. Mercy exults triumphantly over judgment.”
Exercise showing mercy just as Jehovah/Yahweh God has shown us mercy by giving us His Son, Our Messiah, Jesus/Yahshua to atone for all our sins.
Isaiah : 66 : 2
“Now all these things my own hand has made, so that all these came to be,” is the utterance of Jehovah. “To this one, then, I shall look, to the one afflicted and contrite in spirit and trembling at my word.”
Jehovah/Yahweh God will always deliver those in troubled times; those that are kind in heart, merciful, compassionate, righteous and at all times in the awe and love for Him.
Isaiah : 61 : 1
The Spirit of God is upon the anointed righteous ones of the earth.
Isaiah : 57 : 15-16
“For this is what the High and Lofty One, who is residing forever and whose name is holy, has said: “In the height and in the holy place is where I reside, also with the one crushed and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly ones and to revive the heart of the ones being crushed. For it will not be to time indefinite that I shall contend, nor perpetually that I shall be indignant; for because of me the spirit itself would grow feeble, even the breathing creatures that I myself have made.”
Isaiah : 57 : 21
“There is no peace,” my God has said, “for the wicked ones.”
Matthew : 5 : 3-16
The Kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are conscious of the spiritual need which is “Food for the Soul”. Be the light that shines onto men and be the salt that does not lose its strength and flavor of righteousness to the world.
Genesis : 5 : 22
Enoch, the man who pleased God, walked righteously with our Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh.
Genesis : 6 : 8-9
Jehovah/Yahweh God found favor in Noah because he walked righteously with the True God, Noah proved himself faultless in many ways and some of his traits were being merciful, kind, compassionate, honest in all dealings and also humble in spirit.
Malachi : 2 : 6
“The very law of truth proved to be in his mouth, and there was no unrighteousness to be found on his lips. In peace and in uprightness he walked with me, and many were those whom he turned back from error.”
Jehovah/Yahweh declares He will protect and bless those when there is no perverseness upon their lips and their hearts no deceitfulness and wickedness abounding.
Revelation : 3 : 4-5
“‘Nevertheless, you do have a few names in Sar´dis that did not defile their outer garments, and they shall walk with me in white ones, because they are worthy. He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments; and I will by no means blot out his name from the book of life, but I will make acknowledgment of his name before my Father and before his angels.”
Jesus/Yahshua declares that those who endures and conquers evilness and wickedness and have no defilement of their hearts, soul and spirit by walking in purity will be counted worthy in the eyes of Almighty Eternal One True God and Father Jehovah/Yahweh. This gives us the entitlement to be arrayed in white outer garments and our names in the Book of Life.

2 Timothy 3:1-5
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty,
3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without
5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away!
(Hatred, wars, rape, incest, violence, greed, love of money,
foul language, selfishness, divorce, homosexuality,
group sex, wife swapping, swinging, orgies,incest,
fornication, adultery, stealing, murder, lying,
mugging, kidnapping, prostitution, trafficking in
child slavery, worshipping “the son” only
instead of “the Father”, Christians celebrating pagan
holidays, Christians wearing pagan idols,
child abuse, parent abuse, grand-parent abuse,
spiritism, astrology, witchcraft, drug-abuse,
drunkeness, slander, haughtiness, arrogance,
lovers of pleasure, disobedient to parents,
disobedient to authority, ungrateful, unthankful,
not open to any agreement, puffed up with pride,
false witnesses, no self-control, fierce, headstrong,
and just plain mean.)
All the ABOVE brings people down and it starts with what’s in their minds,
it takes roots and it festers and soon the mind becomes a battlefield and leads
to internal spiritual warfare, the wrestle between doing good and bad,
these are the schemes and machinations of the Devil aka Satan aka Lucifer,
the fallen angel!
Time is short and running out for him, so he and his minions manipulates and
deceives mankind in every which way to deter them from worshipping
YAHWEH our God and YESHUA, our Messiah
16 For where jealousy and contentiousness are, there disorder and every vile thing are.
“Do not boast, lie or murmur sweet words to cover up the ugly truth in thine hearts
of arrogance, selfishness and bitter jealousy which is venom to thy souls”
It’s earthly and it’s the attitude of Satan, the father of all lies and deceit;
so purify yourselves with the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God Yahweh
so that you may stand blameless when our Messiah Yeshua comes back to reclaim
his rightful throne to rule.

“Children, obey your parents in the Master: for this is right. Honor thy father and thy mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the [new] earth.” (Ephesians 6:1). Children who dishonor their parents, and disobey them, and disregard their advice and instructions, can have no part in the earth made new. The purified new earth will be no place for the rebellious, the disobedient, the unthankful, ungrateful son or daughter. Unless such learn obedience and submission here, they will never learn the lesson hereafter; and the peace of the ransomed will never be marred by the disobedient, unruly, unsubmissive children. No commandment-breaker can inherit the kingdom of heaven. Will all the youth please read the fifth commandment spoken by Jehovah from Sinai, and engraven with his own finger upon tables of stone. “Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Master thy Yahuwah giveth thee.” (Exodus 20:12). “Children, obey your parents in all things; for this is well-pleasing unto the Master.”
There are many passages of Scripture that are plain, instructing the young, showing them clearly the will of Yahuwah concerning them. These plain teachings they must meet in the Judgment. Yet there is not one young man or woman in twenty who professes the present truth, who heeds these Bible teachings. They do not read the word of Yahuwah enough to know its claims upon them, and yet these truths will judge them in the great day of Yahuwah, when young and old will be judged according to the deeds done in the body.
Says John, “I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of Yahuwah abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of Yahuwah abideth forever.” (1 John 2:14-17).
This exhortation to young men extends also to young women. Their youth does not excuse them from the responsibilities resting upon them. The youth are strong. They are not worn down with the weight of years, and with cares. Their affections are ardent, and if they are withdrawn from the world, and placed upon Yahushua and heaven, doing the will of Yahuwah, they will have a hope of the better life that is enduring, and they will abide forever, being crowned with glory, honor, immortality, eternal life. If the youth live to gratify the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, they are seeking for the things of the world, are pleasing their great adversary, and separating themselves from the Father. And when these things that are sought after pass away, their hopes are blighted and their expectations perish. Separated from Yahuwah, then they will bitterly repent their folly of serving their own pleasure, of gratifying their own desires, and for a few frivolous enjoyments, of selling a life of immortal bliss that they might have enjoyed forevermore. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world,” says the inspired apostle. Then the warning, “If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” It is an alarming fact that the love of the world predominates in the minds of the young. They decidedly love the world and the things that are in the world, and for this very reason the love of Yahuwah finds no room in their hearts. Their pleasures are found in the world, and in the things of the world, and they are strangers to the Father and the graces of his Spirit. Frivolity and fashion, and empty, vain talking and laughing, characterize the life of the youth generally, and Yahuwah is dishonored. Paul exhorts the youth to sobriety: “Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.” (Titus 2:6-8).
I entreat the youth for their souls’ sake to heed the exhortation of the inspired apostle. All these gracious instructions, warnings, and reproofs, will be either a savor of life unto life or of death unto death. Many of the young are reckless in their conversation. They choose to forget that by their words they shall be justified, or by their words be condemned. Take heed to the words of our Saviour: “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things; and an evil man out the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of Judgment; for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” (Matthew 12:35-36). How little regard is paid even to the instructions of the heavenly Teacher! The word of Yahuwah is either not studied at all, or if it is, its solemn truths are not heeded, and these plain truths will rise up in Judgment and condemn them.
Words and acts testify plainly what is in the heart. If vanity and pride, love of self and love of dress, fill the heart, the conversation will be upon the fashions, the dress, and the appearance, but not upon Yahushua or the kingdom of heaven. If envious feelings dwell in the heart, the same will be manifested in words and acts. Those who measure themselves by others, and do as others do, and make no higher attainments, and excuse themselves over the wrongs and faults of others, are feeding on husks, and will remain spiritual dwarfs as long as they gratify the Devil by thus indulging their own unconsecrated feelings. Some dwell upon what they shall eat and drink and wherewithal they shall be clothed. Their hearts are filled with these thoughts, and they flow out from the abundance of the heart, as though these things were their grand aim in life, their highest attainment. They forget the words of Yahushua,”Seek ye first the kingdom of Yahuwah and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33).
Satan is gratified to have the attention of youth attracted by anything to divert their minds from Yahuwah, so that the deceiver can steal a march upon them, and they, unprepared for his attacks, be ensnared. They are not aware that the heavenly Artist is taking cognizance of every act, every word, and their deportment; and that even the thoughts and intents of the heart stand faithfully delineated. Every defect in the moral character stands forth revealed to the gaze of angels, and they will have the faithful picture presented to them in all its deformity at the execution of the Judgment. Those vain, frivolous words are all written in the book. Those false words are written. Those deceptive acts, with the motives concealed from human eyes, but discerned by the all-seeing eye of Jehovah, are all written in living characters. Every selfish act is exposed. The young generally conduct themselves as though the precious hours of probation, while mercy lingers, were one grand holiday, and that they are placed in this world simply for their own amusement, to be gratified by a continued round of excitement.
Satan has been making special efforts to lead the youth to find happiness in worldly amusements, and to justify themselves in thus doing, by endeavoring to show that these amusements are harmless, innocent, and even important to health. The impression has been given by some physicians that spirituality and devotion to Yahuwah are detrimental to health. This suits the adversary of souls well. There are persons with diseased imaginations who do not rightly represent the religion of Yahushua; such have not the pure religion of the Bible. Some are scourging themselves all through their life because of their sins; all they can see is an offended Yahuwah of justice. Yahushua and his redeeming power, through the merits of his blood, they fail to see. Such have not faith. This class are generally those who have not well-balanced minds. Through disease transmitted to them from their parents, and an erroneous education in youth, they have imbibed wrong habits, injuring the constitution, affecting the brain causing the moral organs to be diseased, and making it impossible for them upon all points to think and act rationally. They have not well-balanced minds. Yahuwahliness and righteousness are not destructive to health, but are health to the body and strength to the soul. Says Peter: “He that will love life, and see good days, . . . let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it: for the eyes of the Master are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers; but the face of the Master is against them that do evil.” (1 Peter 3:10) “But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled.” (1 Peter 3:14).
The consciousness of right doing is the best medicine for diseased bodies and minds. The special blessing of Yahuwah resting upon the receiver is health and strength. A person whose mind is quiet and satisfied in Yahuwah is in the pathway to health. To have a consciousness that the eyes of the Master are upon us, and his ears open to hear our prayers, is a satisfaction indeed. To know that we have a never-failing Friend in whom we can confide all the secrets of the soul, is a privilege which words can never express. Those whose moral faculties are beclouded by disease, are not the ones to rightly represent the life of Yahushua, or the beauties of holiness. They are often in the fire of fanaticism, or the water of cold indifference or stolid gloom.
The words of Yahushua are of more worth than the opinions of all the physicians in the universe. “Seek ye first the kingdom of Yahuwah and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” This is the first great object–the kingdom of Heaven, the righteousness of Yahushua. Other objects to be attained should be secondary to these.

We have taken out from the original article all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. Furthermore, we have restored in the Scriptures quoted the original names of the Father and Son, as they were originally written by the inspired writers of the Bible.
