An Open Letter
“It has been told you, man, what is good!”
This is AN OPEN LETTER to those who believe that all their sins have been “forgiven” because they believe that Jesus Christ “the saviour” died for, and instead of, them.
Friends, you are (yes you are!) in real trouble! Not only are you all still sin-laden, you have added a new, terrible sin to the old batch! You are all guilty of idolatry for worshipping a false “saviour” and god. The word of YHVH (spelled YEHOVAH in the massoretic text; some prefer Yahweh.) plainly states that He (YHVH) alone is Saviour; (Isaiah 43:11)– He alone can forgive sin, (Isaiah 43,25)– He alone is the True Deity, (Isaiah 43:10)!!
Moreover, you cannot “believe away” sin! Magic plays absolutely no role in the system of sin and atonement established by YHVH, the sole creator of this universe. Atonement by “faith” is not part of YHVH’s setup. The only way a sinner can get his sins forgiven is; by repenting and; by doing and fulfilling what YHVH wants him to do!! YHVH says: “again, when I say to the wicked, you shall surely die; if he turn from his sin (repents) and do that which is lawful and right (“good works”)…… he shall surely live, he shall NOT die!! NONE of his sins which he had committed shall be remembered against him! He has done that which is lawful and right! He shall surely LIVE!” Ezekiel 33:14-16. (Ezekiel was a prophet of YHVH. He wasn’t a Christian preacher!)
In Moses’ day, the repentant sinner usually (NOT ALWAYS) offered an animal sacrifice to symbolize his “giving” and YHVH’s “accepting”.
Later prophets put the emphasis not on sacrifice but on obedience.
“Behold, to OBEY is BETTER than sacrifice”! Samuel 15:22. “Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?” Psalm 50:13.
“By practicing mercy and truth is sin atoned for!” Proverbs 16:6
Dear friends, HOW can you come to YHVH? YHVH provides the answer: “Return, Oh Israel, to YHVH your almighty, for you have stumbled in your iniquity! Take with you WORDS and return to YHVH! (WHAT words?) Say to Him: ‘forgive all iniquity and accept GOODNESS’ (good works). Thus, will we offer, INSTEAD of bullocks (blood) the offerings of our LIPS!” Hosea 14:2-3.
Dear friends, according to the word of YHVH, NO ONE can die for you! If you don’t believe me, read Exodus 33:31-33; Deuteronomy 24:16; Ezekiel 18:3-4. But YHVH’s demands can be met by you, if only you will know the truth. You can come to YHVH on your own! Read YHVH’s word! “With what offering can I come before YHVH, and bow myself before the Mighty One on high? Should I come to him with burnt offerings, with year-old calves? Will YHVH be pleased by thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil? Should I give my first-born for my transgression (human sacrifice, like the crucifixion!), the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? It has been told you, man, what is good, and what YHVH (not religious doctrine but YHVH!) requires of you: ONLY to DO what is just (YHVH’s COMMANDMENTS) and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your Almighty!” Micah 6:6-8.
Hallelu-Yah, praise YHVH! His Salvation is open to all! No believing in fairy-stories, no bloody crucifixions! No “divine suicide” on a Roman Cross! Plain and simple is the Way of YHVH! Will you take Him at His Word today?
May YHVH bless you, Amen.
A Jew that cares
