Whoever Obeys The
Ten Commandments Will Go To Heaven
is wrong for
at least three reasons:
The Bible never states
that obeying the Ten Commandments will get you into Heaven. In fact if you
didn't know the laws you wouldn't know when you were sinning and breaking the
The Ten Commandments are a
small amount of the Bible (Exodus chapter 20, verses 3-17 later repeated in
Deuteronomy chapter 5, verses 7-21). If that were all people needed to know, the
majority of the Bible would not have been written.
Even the most holy people
cannot claim they have never broken the Ten Commandments. If not in word or
deed, we blow it with our thoughts! Remember
it is not a sin to be tempted, it is a sin to act upon the temptation! YAHUSHUA was
tempted by the devil and yet he did NOT sin! Yet, how many times have you become
angry and thought about what you would like to do to get even?
On the other hand, had a thought for that person that you know would be a
sin if you spoke it? Only YAHUVEH is perfect! Everyone else is a liar! For all have
sinned and fell short of the GLORY of YAHUVEH! For all those that claim they do not
sin, then why do they need a Savior? Why would they want to accept YAHUSHUA as LORD and SAVIOUR (Messiah)
I have met a number of people who think they have always obeyed the Ten
Commandments, a few questions typically reveal that they have broken most of
them hundreds of times each. For example, most people broke the commandment
"honor your father and your mother" at least once as a sassy child.
People then realize that by the time they finished their teenage years, they
broke that Commandment hundreds of times more.
But what do you do when your
parents want you to behave ungodly? What do you do when your parents make you
choose between obeying YAHUSHUA and obeying them? Is it sinning to disobey them or to
rebuke them? No, for the bible says obey YAHUVEH not man (first) whether it is your
parents, or the government! First we must obey YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. Some
Churches teach that no matter what the Government tells us to do we must OBEY
for YAHUVEH wants us to do this.
This is true as long as it does not go against what the bible tells us to do. If this is
not true then the Germans that hid the Jews so they would not be killed, or those
that hid the Christians, were sinning against YAHUVEH! Nonsense! The government
says abortion is not murder, does this mean YAHUVEH wants Christians to do this?
To help do this? To defend the act of murdering the innocent babies? NO!
We could continue with examples from the other
commandments, but the point has been made. People who examine themselves truthfully discover
they have broken most of the Ten Commandments at some time in their lives and if
you break one once, you are lost. Unless you believe that YAHUSHUA Messiah
gave his life in our place paying the price for our sins in our place by
shedding his HOLY PURE SINLESS BLOOD at CALVARY! No man killed
YAHUSHUA he willingly laid down his life so we would be saved!
Do the best you can to obey but leave the rest up to YAHUSHUA
knowing that our most Holy behavior cannot compare to YAHUSHUA'S
purity, holiness and sinlessness! Just believe that YAHUSHUA is
faithful to save all of us who call on HIS name to be saved from our sins,
repent, turn away from those sins, and when you sin know that YAHUSHUA is not only
our intercessor, like a Lawyer, before YAHUVEH but the bible says HE is the JUDGE!
Now this is winning odds isn't it? How could YAHUVEH be more
merciful than this? Have you ever noticed the more we try to be perfect the more
we realize we are not perfect?
the Father, YAHUSHUA the SON, and the RUACH HA KODESH/HOLY SPIRIT is PERFECT! When we ask for
forgiveness we believe that YAHUSHUA our MASHIACH, paid the price for our sin, and don't
premeditate sin, because there is such a thing as tempting YAHUVEH. We are not to
sin because we fear YAHUVEH or hell contrary to what is taught, we are to not desire
to sin because we Love YAHUSHUA and YAHUVEH the FATHER so much that we don't want to
hurt them in anyway!
We do not have
to fear our Heavenly Father when we love HIM and his Son YAHUSHUA and putting
them first in our lives! Desiring
to be pleasing unto our Daddy YAHUVEH in all ways!
Whoever Goes To Church Will Go To Heaven.
This opinion is wrong for
at least three reasons.
The Bible never states
that attending church will get you into Heaven.
Since churches disagree
with one another, how do you know you are in the correct one to get you into Heaven?
If going to a restaurant
does not turn you into a hamburger, why do you think going to a church will turn
you into a saint? (Yes, that was supposed to be humorous, but the concept is
have seen people who go to church each week and promptly fall asleep. If they
are openly bored with YAHUVEH, will HE still invite them into
Heaven anyway? We do
not think so. What if the church they are attending is actually a cult or a
false religion? If that is the case, they are in trouble. Do you know for all
eternity we will be praising and worshipping our Savior and Creator? Can you
picture someone that hates praising YAHUVEH here on earth desiring to worship YAHUVEH
for all eternity in Heaven?
Do Racists Go To Heaven?
NO! For I tell
you true there will not be one race, or one religion in Heaven! I know racists
and they come in all skin colors and religions! I do not believe you can be a
racist and truly Love YAHUSHUA! People
who hate Jews and claim to be Christians, or Jews that hate Christians,
Catholics that hate Protestants, and vice versa, and white people who think
Heaven will be segregated, SURPRISE! HELL
will be filled with racists! Moreover, I do not care what color your skin is
or your nationality! You are not a Christian, if you do not love people regardless of
their race! Heaven will be filled with all different races, and nationalities!
How boring Heaven would be if this were not so! I have felt the anger of
the Lord as on TV I hear the Ku Klux Klan, quote the bible and yet spew their
vomit from their mouths with hatred toward other races and nationalities!
Proving they serve satan! This is their true father and hell will be their home,
if they don't repent!
will be overflowing with racists and bigots! No one race, gender, or nationality is
superior over another! I think it
is a blessing to get to know other people from other nationalities. How can we
claim to Love YAHUSHUA and yet hate people because they do not look like us?
I grieve when I see how we judge others for the way they look, their age,
weight, and color of skin or nationality.
Can any of us change the country we were born in?
I admit I struggle with a prejudice but it is because of the deep hatred
Muslims have of YAHUSHUA and all who are Christians or Jewish.
Muslims are torturing and murdering our Brothers and Sisters in YAHUSHUA all over
the world! Men, Women, and Children! I pray the Muslims will repent and
turn away from the evil they are doing! There will not be any Muslims in Heaven!
They must accept YAHUSHUA as Lord and SAVIOUR. We must pray that
the Muslims will accept YAHUSHUA, as Lord and Saviour!
Everyone Who Goes To Church Goes To Heaven.
YAHUVEH tells us No Pew warmer, lukewarm in faith,
and has no relationship with YAHUSHUA will be saved. YAHUSHUA will
spew ,that means vomit, them out of his mouth! Better to be hot on fire for the
Lord or Cold hating YAHUSHUA, than to be lukewarm. Those that go to church for show
because they think this is a free ticket to Heaven, yet they have no personal
relationship with YAHUSHUA are only fooling themselves. Church is not a fashion
show, nor is it a place to lift up the pastor as a God or one that can do no
wrong! There is but one Good
Shepherd and it is NOT a mortal man or woman! A lie is being told in some churches that the people can buy their way into
Heaven! Tithe to the pastor and
your guaranteed Heaven. WRONG! No one can bribe their way into Heaven! No amount of lighting candles
can get a soul out of Hell! Taking
communion is a good thing, like observing the True Sabbath day and keeping it
holy, but it will not save your soul!
Don't get me wrong, it
is good to go to a bible believing Church, which puts YAHUSHUA first! A church that
shows the true love of YAHUSHUA by loving the congregation and encourages the gifts of
the HOLY SPIRIT! Teaches the uncompromising word of YAHUVEH! Teaching Holiness, and
helping to prepare the bride of YAHUSHUA Messiah for HIS coming again! Still, going to church will not get you into
Heaven. Only ONE way to
Heaven and HIS name is YAHUSHUA.
Whoever Does More Good Things Than Bad Things Will Go To Heaven.
This is also called balance
scale judgment, and is one of the most common wrong beliefs. This opinion is
wrong for at least three reasons:
The Bible never states that
doing more good things than bad things will get you into Heaven.
YAHUVEH is so holy (perfect and
sinless) that all our righteousness are like filthy rags to HIM (see Isaiah
chapter 64, verse 6). Do you think giving YAHUVEH a pile of filthy rags will cause
HIM to bring you into Heaven? We dont.
Heaven (or being
saved) is a free gift of YAHUVEH. He made it that way so nobody could boast that
they made it to Heaven by their own good deeds. (See Ephesians chapter 2, verses
8 and 9.)
Whoever Believes In YAHUVEH Will Go To Heaven.
This opinion is wrong for at
least three reasons:
The Bible never states that
believing in YAHUVEH will get you into Heaven.
Satan (the Devil) believes
YAHUVEH exists. In fact, he talks with YAHUVEH in Job chapters 1 and 2. Yet, he is not
going to Heaven, he is going to be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. This is recorded in Revelation chapter 20, verse 10.
Angels that sinned were cast
into Hell and they knew YAHUVEH. Read 2 Peter, chapter 2, verse 4.
Sorry, believing in
not enough to allow you to enter Heaven.
Whoever Has Not Killed Anyone Or Done Anything "Really Bad"
Will Go To Heaven.
opinion is wrong for at least three reasons:
murdering someone is one of the best ways to help you go to Hell, the Bible
never states that not murdering anyone will get you into Heaven. The same is
true of not doing "lesser" crimes.
the Bible, there are at least two murderers that went to Heaven: Moses and
are some people who never killed anyone (or did anything else "really
bad") who still went to Hell (Hades). Read an example in Luke chapter 16,
verses 19 to 31.
Everyone In A Christian Household Will Go To Heaven.
opinion is wrong for at least three reasons:
Bible never states that being part of a specific family will allow you to go to Heaven.
are not physically born a Christian like you are born a citizen of a country. To
become a Christian and go to Heaven (enter the kingdom of YAHUVEH) you have to be
"born of water and the Spirit. This is different. See John chapter 3,
Bible states that some members of a family will go to Heaven while others
sleeping or working next to them will not (Matthew chapter 24, verses 40,41 and
Luke chapter 17, verses 34,35).
the member of a family is not the way to get into Heaven.
we said before, the one way to get right with YAHUVEH is based completely on the
Bible, not our opinion. This can be verified by reading the Bible yourself. That
is why we inserted the Bible link above. Now, if we are going to follow what the
Bible says about getting right with YAHUVEH, we have to answer three important
1: Why Do I Need YAHUSHUA?
Most people begin with a wrong
view of their condition in their relationship to YAHUVEH. If they believe in a life after
this life, they think their own way of getting to Heaven is "good
enough" to make it through those "pearly gates." Reincarnation is
a lie of the devil! How do I know? Because if all it took was for us to keep
coming back in different lives until we reach perfection and then we could go to
Heaven, it would disqualify the work and price YAHUSHUA paid at
Calvary! It disqualifies the bible
that tells us hell is real and Heaven is real! The Word of YAHUVEH does not
lie! Seventh Day Adventists,
believe that their prayers are not heard if the prayers are not said on bended
knees! WRONG! Other church
doctrines say if a woman wears makeup or slacks, jewelry, or has a spiritual
leadership role, she will go to Hell! This is pure FOOLISHNESS!
I was told this by more than one religion.
Seventh Day Adventists teach that if a person stops going to the Seventh Day
Adventist Church that person will lose their salvation!
Wrong! Salvation does not depend on your affiliation with a church! It is
about a relationship with YAHUSHUA!
know that we are to honor and keep holy the true Sabbath day, but if you
believe that only the True Sabbath Keepers will go to Heaven! And I am not
speaking of Sunday either, but the Sabbath set up by our Creator as stated in
the book of Genesis. Friday sunset to Saturday sunset...but the Seventh Day
Adventist teach that if you work, or buy or choose another day to worship YAHUVEH
that you will NOT go to Heaven! LIES! IF that is all it took then every Orthodox Jew that refuses
to accept YAHUSHUA as their Savior would be guaranteed Heaven! Again if
this were true then the work and gift YAHUSHUA gave us at Calvary would not have been necessary! Others believe
anyone that eats pork or other unclean foods (lobster, shrimp, crab, oysters,
etc )will not go to Heaven! WRONG! Yes, YAHUSHUA, cast the demons into a herd
of swine and then the pigs ran off a steep cliff and drowned! Yes, certain foods are
considered unclean foods but you will not go to hell just because you ate them.
I have a personal confession. I taught my son this law and he hates pork! We rarely eat it, so I thought until I found out Pepperoni was Pork! I
had a dont ask don't tell policy!
year my young son said to me when I was offered a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich
and he said don't do it mom or you will go to Hell! I knew then somehow I failed in conveying that not eating
pork does not save our souls! Again, if this was the case YAHUSHUA,
would not have had to shed HIS blood and gave HIS life at Calvary! When I was ministering to a young new messianic Jewish convert and she
said to me that if her and her 3 daughters were starving to death and there was
only pork in the freezer she would die and force her girls to die instead of
counting that pork as a blessing! I knew then as her mentor I must have failed
her in someway! No amount of proving it scriptural would change her mind. Now I
once in a while will eat pork or other unclean foods as stated in the Bible (Torah) just
so my son is reminded mom knows that eating it will not send
us to Hell!
Unclean foods can be made clean by the Blood of
YAHUSHUA! It is
not what goes into our mouth that defiles us but what comes out of our mouth
that defiles us! That does not mean
we should purposely defile this temple of the HOLY GHOST and put in unclean
foods just to test this either. Whatever we eat, just ask YAHUVEH's blessings and
do it with thanksgiving!
Honor and Worship YAHUVEH 7 days a week but remember the
true Sabbath also. Seventh Day Adventist are out of balance in many ways. They
really believe that only Seventh Day Adventists have the truth and no person
will be found in Heaven unless they believe Seventh Day Adventist doctrines.
Well for the record I don't believe in Soul sleep, and I do believe if I were to
die right now I would go immediately to Heaven. SDA believe that no one that
dies now goes to Heaven, until YAHUSHUA comes again. I believe in the rapture, and
I believe in a literal Hell, and I know my enemy is satan and hell is also
called Hades, and it is not a lore or myth! I believe there will be people in
Heaven of many different church affiliations but none will be found that refuse YAHUVEH's
GIFT AT CALVARY! I refuse to believe that YAHUSHUA is Michael the Arch Angel!
All the above was attempted to be indoctrinated into me and this man failed.
I know this from personal
experience recently because I refused to be converted to this religion and
I refused to teach or repent for the way I believe and minister
Prophecy. This ministry I would not allow to be used as a Seventh Day Adventist
outreach! Even though it meant losing the love of someone. I still love and pray
YAHUSHUA will show him the truth and he will run from the Seventh Day Adventist
Church for his own soul sake. He is only a new babe in YAHUSHUA 2 years old.
beliefs measure these people against other people. None of these beliefs really
explain those peoples condition when related to YAHUVEH. The Bible tells us that
every person is totally separated from YAHUVEH by a thing called "sin."
(This is shown in the book of Romans, chapter 3, and verse 23. People familiar
with the Bible call this "Romans 3:23" as a type of "Bible
shorthand.") Sin is disobeying YAHUVEH. Since YAHUVEH is sinless, He cannot stand
sin, or people with sin (every one of us). We strive to be perfect. The problem
is that we cannot be perfect, it is impossible. So although we fail we strive to
be more like our beloved YAHUSHUA knowing the more we try the more we realize we
fail and why we need a Saviour!
of it this way. If three of us throw darts at a dart board and one gets two
inches away from the bulls eye, another four inches away, and another misses
the board completely, which one of us hit the bulls eye? No one, of course!
This is how it is with us compared to YAHUVEH. The bulls eye is what YAHUVEH demands
(perfection, no sin ever). Some will come closer to obeying YAHUVEH than others, but
no one ever hits the bulls eye of perfection. Thus, everyone is totally lost
and they are (literally) enemies of YAHUVEH, even if they get close to the bulls
eye. Just one sin totally separates us from YAHUVEH. What makes this worse is that
we know that if we sin we have to die. See Romans 6:23 (chapter 6, verse 23). We
will also be separated from YAHUVEH and eternally in Hell. Needless to say, we have
a problem. The bible says, " we work out our own salvation with fear and
is where YAHUSHUA comes in. YAHUVEH knew that there was no possible way that we could
ever have any association with Him because of our sin. Knowing that we could not
erase even one sin on our own, He loved us so much that He sent His Son YAHUSHUA
into the world. See John 3:16-17. Since
YAHUSHUA never sinned, HE did not have to die. Still, HE chose to die on the cross for
the sins of all people. HE became the "perfect sacrifice" for all our
sins, and YAHUVEH accepted HIS death for our sins as payment in full! Therefore, YAHUSHUA
became the "bridge" between us and YAHUVEH. It is only through what
HE did that we can have any association with YAHUVEH. See John 14:6. All we have to
do is accept YAHUSHUA as our Savior and then live for HIM. That brings us to our
2: How Do I Accept YAHUSHUA?
The Bible reveals
in YAHUSHUA and put your faith in Him. See Ephesians 2:8-10 (chapter 2, verses 8
not a blind faith, but rather a faith based on facts. That is, unlike other
faiths, it can be verified and proven to be true.
of your sins. (See Acts 17:30,31.)
"repent" mean? Well, imagine that you were going to the store when you
realized that you forgot your money. What would you do? You would probably be
disappointed that you wasted so much time, but you would still turn around and
go home to get your money. Repentance is like that. A repentant person simply
says, "YAHUVEH, I behaved badly in my past, and I want to turn around and live
the way that You want me to live from now on." You can talk to YAHUVEH like you
would talk to a respected friend and repent of any sin that has been a part of
YAHUSHUA as Lord to someone. (See Matthew 10:32,33 and Romans 10:9,10)
In the Bible,
YAHUVEH always places emphasis on what we say probably because whatever is in your
heart determines what you say (Matthew 12:34).
Therefore, YAHUVEH wants us to verbally commit to YAHUSHUA (as Lord of our life)
baptized. (See Acts 2:38,39)
means being immersed in water. Typically, a person would stand in water, be
lowered into the water (by another Christian), and then be brought back up out
of the water. The significance of this act can be seen in Romans 6:1-7 and an
example of it in Acts 8:26-39.
Some people do not
think that baptism is part of accepting YAHUSHUA. However one thing is clear in the
Bible belief and baptism are always together, never separated."
Therefore, it is obvious that baptism is part of accepting YAHUSHUA. We encourage
you to search out baptisms "why" in the Bible. Any true Christian may baptize you.
To be baptized by
water is one way but YAHUSHUA said, "John baptized by water but YAHUSHUA baptizes
with FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT! After you get the baptism by water then seek the
infilling of the FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT! This is where the gifts of the HOLY
SPIRIT come in! However, do not believe that if you do not have the gifts or
speak in other tongues, that you will not go to Heaven! Another false doctrine!
If this were so then YAHUVEH would plainly say everyone that does not speak in other
tongues, would not be saved! Again, if this were true it would not have been
necessary for YAHUSHUA to give his life and blood at Calvary! Only the Blood of YAHUSHUA
washes away sins to those that receive that Gift in Faith! Baptists and
other Church organizations teach that if a person is not baptized even a young
child that person will not go to Heaven! If this were true again, why would it be
necessary for YAHUSHUA to be sacrificed at Calvary?
Baptism is a outward sign that we follow YAHUSHUA! Young Children cannot
understand this fully so they should not be baptized until they understand what
the price is to follow YAHUSHUA. Babies should be dedicated but not baptized for they
must be old enough to make their own decisions.
According to the
Bible, this four-step process gets you right with YAHUVEH. If you have chosen to do
this, congratulations! You are now on the straight and narrow path and can begin
developing and keeping a relationship with YAHUVEH. That leads us to our third and
3: How Do I Stay Right With YAHUVEH Through YAHUSHUA?
Many times people
think that YAHUVEH is going to forgive their past sins, but after becoming a Christian, they can never sin again or
YAHUVEH will reject them. This is not the
case at all, so let us get an understanding of how we are to live after
accepting YAHUSHUA as our Savior and Lord.
1 John 1:5-2:6
(chapter 1, verse 5 through chapter 2, verse 6) gives the best answer. This
passage describes people who are right with YAHUVEH, and explains to them that they
will still struggle with and fall into sin at times. At these times, it says
that the blood of YAHUSHUA cleanses them from all sin. However, it first qualifies
how believers must live to apply this promise to themselves. It uses the terms
"walking in the light" and "walking in the darkness."
The big issues
here are foundation, motivation, and consistency. If our foundation is the
Bible, if our motivation is being like YAHUSHUA, and if we consistently seek to
live like YAHUSHUA, then we know that YAHUSHUA covers our sins, and we are still
right with YAHUVEH. (See 1 John 2:5,6 and 1 John 5:13.) However, if we say that we
know YAHUVEH, and yet do not consistently seek to live like YAHUSHUA by obeying HIM
(that is, we continue to "walk in darkness") YAHUVEH says that we are
liars and the truth is not in us. (See 1 John 2:3,4 and 1 John 1:6.) Thus, if
you make a decision to accept YAHUSHUA, you must understand that it means a
lifetime commitment toward seeking to be like YAHUSHUA in the way that you live.
This is what "staying right with YAHUVEH" is all about" becoming more
like YAHUSHUA! We certainly hope that you will choose YAHUSHUA! The one way to make sure your name is written in the
Lamb's Book of life
is to put YAHUVEH FIRST and LOVE YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA and the HOLY SPIRIT with all your
mind, body, spirit, and soul! Do your best to obey YAHUVEH and keep the commandments
because we want to please our Heavenly Father for we do not want to grieve HIM.
Love your neighbors and do good to others the way you want them to do good to
you. All the commandments are wrapped up in these two commandments.
If you need to
know more please email me. I consider it a privilege to pray with you and meet
you in Heaven if not on earth.
Love to all in the
name of YAHUSHUA,
