Marks of a Sincere Faith - Study
 
Well, want to talk today; actually I want to start today by asking an important question. What does it really mean to be a sincere believer
in Yahweh?
What does it really mean? What would be some signs that we are his? What would be some things that we could look at and say, now that, that right there that's what it really means to be a believer! I have heard some people say these kinds of things in the past. What does it really mean to be a believer?
And so I thought we would go through the scriptures
and examine Some marks of sincere faith. Actually the picture behind this graphic here; behind the text would be a sign of a sincere believer. A well marked, well worn Bible would be one sign, right! It's not the only sign; but it is one sign of a sincere believer. I'm sorry I did not put it up there. So what are some marks of a sincere faith? What are some things that you could look at about a person's walk with Messiah that would be some signs that this person is the real deal? And most importantly, this is a question we have to ask ourselves, personally. What are some signs, some marks, and some indicators, that we have a sincere faith? And of course the Bible, a well marked Bible is just
an example of that; but someone could mark in
their bible just for show. I'm sure someone could do that! Let me ask you a question, suppose there was a man, he was a fantastic communicator; he could explain the word of Yahweh and speak in such a way that people became converted to the true faith. And what if they actually were prophets and they could speak the word of Yahweh and they could literally say, thus sayeth Yahweh and it would always be true? And suppose that person could explain some of the most difficult mysteries in all of scripture. And suppose that person had the kind of faith that, I mean, when they prayed it happened -- it didn't matter what it was, it would happen. And this person lived the life of a homeless man because he gave everything he had to the poor. And eventually people hated his preaching so much that they had an opposition to him; they hated his preaching so much they literally burned him alive.
Do you suppose that person would be found having had
eternal life in the age to come?
Not necessarily!

Not necessarily!
Why do I say that? 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned, but have not
love, it profits me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, Does not parade itself, you facebook users. is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
And so the key elements; one of the key marks of
one who has a sincere faith is whether or not they love. Do they truly, truly love? You can understand all you want. You can have the knowledge all you want. The whole purpose of everything is not to be smarter and be better able to expound and explain; the purpose of it all is love. 1 Timothy 1:5 5 Now the purpose of the commandment
is love from a pure heart, from a good
conscience, and from sincere faith, The title of this message - sincere faith! So we must understand the reason for the commands to
begin with.
It is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, from a sincere faith. Then it says: 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, They don't know what they are talking about. 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. And so they speak the words, but they don't understand them. And they don't understand what they are even affirming when they affirm the validity of what the law teaches. And, I see this.
I am not judging individuals; but just
generally speaking. People have missed the whole point of the law to begin with - love - from a pure heart and from a sincere faith; with a good conscience. So why are you here right now? Why do you come to listen to the scriptures being taught? Why do we go over the scriptures, the inspired words of Elohim and try to understand them? Because we are trying to find out what it really means to love. What it really means to love our Heavenly Father! What it really means to love our fellow man! And that is the purpose of it all. That's the reason why we seek to understand the scriptures. And so I want to talk today about what it really means to be a believer.
I know sometimes I give a kind of difficult message,
a hard message. And, I don't claim to be perfect in my performance of what I even teach. But I have to teach truth; even if it's hard, even if it's difficult for me in my natural state to live it out. And for this reason -- because I do give sometimes difficult messages and oh things, that are harder to live out than the average. Well, most of the time I am not talking to pretenders out there; I am not pandering to those who don't have a sincere faith I don't want to water down Yahweh's word in order to pander to people who think they are believers while they still want to hold on to carnality rather than holiness.
I would rather hear it straight what the Word
says, just the facts. What the Word says and let it convict me and let it teach me and then hopefully it will convict you and teach you. But if we love Yahweh, we will love correction. We will love reproof. We will want to listen to the things that challenge us. We will desire it. We will pursue it. We will chase after it. We will hunger for it. We will thirst for it.
We will!
And I am just reminded of something I read with -
the Frazier family came over this week and we did
some scripture study together, and this scripture just rang in my mind as I am sharing this from the book of Proverbs. It says: Proverbs 12:1-2 Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, But he who hates correction is stupid.
We love, love instruction and love correction, if we
want to be wise. If you want to be stupid you won't listen to the correction you won't care what the Word of Yahweh says. You really don't want to hear it because you really don't want to change. You really down deep in your heart would rather go watch TV or something. Go sit on Facebook and go do something else; because the Word of Yahweh is, you know, not very, kind to our flesh.
It says: 2 A good man obtains favor
(that means obtaining Grace) from Yahweh, But a man of wicked intentions He will condemn. If our intent is righteousness; if our goal and our intent is holiness and love; we will obtain grace. You know even Yahushua says, why do you call me good? He got grace too. But what made Him good was Yahweh's goodness in Him;
Yahweh's righteousness in Him.
So we, if we have a sincere faith, will look for, and pursue, and desire, and want to be corrected; to be changed. Our intent in reading the scriptures is not just to read through and kind of polish off a little novel and stick it on the shelf. It is to find things about ourselves that we need to change. And, some people are afraid to hear those difficult words partly because they think that Yahweh hates them and wants to condemn them and so they have some difficult times accepting
correction, because they want to see themselves,
not so bad - have self esteem issues. But listen, Yahushua, while we were yet sinners died for us. So there is no question as to our value. The question is whether we value Him and if we value His correction, His Words. You know the mark of - I've heard it said, the mark of a false teacher is he always tells you what you want to hear and never rains on your parade.
And, the mark of a false believer is that he never
listens to anyone who would rain on their parade. But you know that in many of my talks I am trying to speak to remnant out there; the ones who have a true passion for Yahweh's ways. The ones who have put away his old ways, with his carnalities and put on the new man Yahushua, the Messiah. And that's generally who I am talking to most of the time. But today I want to talk to the rest of you.
The ones who listen, maybe half listen to the program
because you're sitting on the fence. And maybe you have for a while now. Almost every congregation has people like this in the group. They are the ones who are in attendance, paying their dues, applauding the message that they didn't really pay attention to, and they can't wait until the message is over so they could go about their business - much of which involves nothing to do with spiritual things.
Almost every congregation has folks like that.
I will say there are people who are sitting on the couch right now, they see me, they hear me, but they don't really hear me. They are going through the motions -- maybe a teenage child, maybe a spouse - oh, here's that guy again.
I'm going to sleep.
(chuckle) Now it's okay if you want to sleep because you're tired; but if you want to sleep because you don't want to hear it, then that's a different story. But please, I know there are some among us like that. They feel like, well I keep the Shabbat, I avoid the unclean foods, I observe the festivals, I use the right names; I think I've picked the right religion and so basically I have done what I need to do in order to be saved. And some of us have inherited this churchgoer mentality. You know the scriptures never teach a believer is saved because of what church or congregation they happen to attend; or by what bible teachers they listen too. You know it they never say that! They never say you are saved when you reach this level of righteousness.
You understand these things; you understand the
feast, Shabbat, Torah, clean and unclean and you're set for life. It never says that! You still have to walk the walk that Yahushua walked. You still have to be the kind of husband to you wife that Yahushua is to the assembly. The mark of a sincere faith is a continual awareness of Yahweh's presence in our life; a continual understanding that He is watching us at all times and He wants to instruct us and teach us how we need to live.
So if you are looking at some marks, some examples
of a sincere faith: 1. A faith that loves Someone says, well you
know that person over there did this to me and
that to me, how can they claim to be a believer; how can I love that person, they not even acting like a believer. What did Yahushua do when you were an unbeliever? What did He do when you were His enemy?
He loved you, right!
We have to love everybody. 2. A faith that lives as though Yahweh is always in attendance, and paying close attention to what we are doing A question for you; if you knew that everything you did at home, everywhere you
walked, there were cameras and microphones recording
your activities; and those activities were going to be seen on the nightly news everyday or replayed as part of the following week's Shabbat gathering or on my broadcast; would you live you life any different than you do now? Would anything change?
We read this week that the CIA has the capability,
which I suspected all along, or listening to our conversations in our living rooms through a smart TV which has a microphone, or an Xbox which has a microphone, or listening to our conversations with our little cell phones, just listen in or even turn on a video to see what's going on. Anything change?
I might say something might change, to mean
something will change.
I hope not, I hope I am the same guy in person
that I am anywhere. And that, you know, maybe I wouldn't say it that way to my family members if everything was recorded and broadcast everywhere. Maybe there will be something that changes. Would there be anything that changes? No, No! (chuckle). Would you act differently, would you speak differently, would you think differently? What would happen if all your thoughts were broadcast everywhere? You know it all seems that we all live our lives knowing everything really is recorded. Forget the CIA. How about the Yod Hey Vav Hey (YHWH)? Because there is nothing hidden from the eyes of Yahweh! How many of us are living as if Yahweh sees not?
That's an important question for us.

The Psalm 139 verse 5 says:
Psalm 139:5-12 5 You have hedged me behind and
before, And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it. 7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell (sheol, the grave), behold, You are there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," Even the night shall be light about me; 12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
He sees everything, wherever we go.

Ever heard that saying, you know wherever you go
there you are! Well, wherever we go, there He is. We can't hide from His presence. We can't flee from it. You know there were some in Ezekiel's day who thought they could. Ezekiel 8:1 says: Ezekiel 8:1- 12 8 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Master Yahweh fell upon me there. 2 Then I looked, and there was a likeness, like the appearance of fire-from the appearance of His waist and downward, fire; and from His waist and upward, like the appearance of brightness, like the color of amber. 3 He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; (ouch) and the Spirit
lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me
in visions of Elohim to Jerusalem, to the door of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy. 4 And behold, the glory of the Elohim of Israel was there, like the vision that I saw in the plain. 5 Then He said to me, "Son of man, lift your eyes now toward the north." So I lifted my eyes toward the north, and there, north of the altar gate, was this image of jealousy in the entrance. 6 Furthermore He said to me, "Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations." 7 So He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, there was a hole in the wall. 8 Then He said to me, "Son of man, dig into the wall"; and when I dug into the wall, there was a door. 9 And He said to me, "Go in, and see the wicked abominations which they are doing there." 10 So I went in and saw, and there-every sort of creeping thing, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed all around on the walls. 11 And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in their midst stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan. Each man had a censer in his hand, and a thick cloud of incense went up. 12 Then He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, 'Yahweh does not see us, Yahweh has forsaken the land.' " (Chuckle) They thought since Yahweh had departed from the land that he couldn't see them any more. But Yahweh revealed to Ezekiel and also now to us what men thought they did in secret it was all open and bare to Yahweh. How foolish to think that one could escape the judgments and warnings in the word of Yahweh by hiding! You can go underneath you sheet blankets, you can go in a room, you can go - no matter where you go Yahweh is there. Hebrews 4:12-13 12 For the word of Elohim is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Nothing can hide from Yahweh.
And so when the children of Israel, you know how it talks about they murmured against Yahweh in the wilderness, it wasn't necessarily outwardly done. Psalm 106 verse 24 says: Psalm 106:24-25 24 Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe His word, 25 But complained in their tents, Secretly, this place is terrible, I miss the leaks and the onions and the fish which we so freely ate in Egypt. It was all quite possibly secretly done in their tents and Yahweh heard it and he said, this congregation murmurs against me.
And did not heed the voice of Yahweh.

So Yahweh is listening to every word we speak.

Matthew 12:35-37 35 A good man out of the good
treasure of his heart[a] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day
of judgment.
Every idle word, every little tiny word you say
we will give account.
37 For by your words Think about that, do you think that you have Yahweh's words to worry about, you have you own words to worry about. you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." Wow, just chew on that one for a while; ruminate on that one for a while. Now He will compare your words to His words, and whether or not your words were in accordance with
His words.

And, you will have to give an account.
And, if particularly we are judgmental in the sense that we condemn everybody who is not like us! Yahweh pays attention to that! He said by which judgment you judge you will be judged, right! So every thought is known to Yahweh, every word spoken reaches His ears, and every intent of every
thought is known.
If you look around, you don't have to look very far, all you have to do is read a newspaper or the news reports you can see how wicked the world is and every evil imaginable thing is done. And now think for a moment, we can see the wickedness that is going on in the news reports here and there; but imagine the things that that Yahweh sees and hears in the hearts as he looks into the hearts of men. When you really think about that you just say, wow! What restraint He must have to not just wipe us all out in an instant. Jeremiah 23:23-24 23 "Am I a Elohim near at hand," says Yahweh, "And not a Elohim afar off? 24 Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?" says Yahweh; "Do I not fill heaven and earth?" says Yahweh.
Yahushua in Matthew 9 verse 2 says: Matthew
9:2-4 2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Yahushua saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you." 3 And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, They didn't even say it out loud! The said it within themselves: "This Man blasphemes!" 4 But Yahushua, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts?
What their reactions must have been.
You are just thinking something "blasphemy" in their minds and Yahushua's responding to their secret thoughts. They must have had the impression that their thoughts were not known to Yahushua; but Yahushua knew what they were thinking and responded to them. And so my question for all of us today: How is He responding to your thoughts, to our thoughts? How is He responding? Is He rejoicing over our thoughts? Are our thoughts His delight? Or, are they a burden to Him?
Do our thoughts cause rejoicing in heaven or do
they grieve the spirit of Elohim? Is He grieving over our thoughts or is He rejoicing over our thoughts? Because from His throne He knows our thoughts today! He knows what you are thinking in response to what I am saying. And He knows why you are thinking it. 1 Chronicles 28:9 9 "As for you, my son Solomon, know the Elohim of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for Yahweh searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. Not just the thoughts, but the intent of the thoughts; the reason why you are thinking what you're thinking. So He not only knows your thoughts, He also knows why you are thinking them. Pretty intense if you ponder that for a while. If you seek Him, (David said) He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever. So David is trying to communicate to his son; look Yahweh knows all the imagination of your heart. If you forsake Him in your heart, He will cast you off. And we learn later the power of influence - his wives had turned away Solomon's heart from Yahweh. Yahweh wants us to love Him with all our hearts; not just part of our hearts - all of our hearts; and we are supposed to. The thoughts of our hearts need to express love for Him. If we love Him with all our hearts; then our thoughts will be one of love and dedication to Him. I am not trying to say this with a scowl; like
He'sssss watching you!
Ooh, He's going to get you! I'm not trying to say that! Yahweh wants you to love Him and He knows if you really are! He wants all of your heart, not just a part of it. It's not good enough to just give Him a half of your heart; He wants it all! So, let's just be open, transparent! Confess our sins that He already sees anyway and ask for His strength and wisdom to to overcome the things that we know is not His will. So the next time you enter into temptation remember Yahweh is there in observation; and He just want to know what you are going to do about this. He is testing our hearts. He is trying the reigns. And so a sincere faith lives are if Yahweh is always in attendance, always in observation, always paying close attention, and is aware of His presence. So many people are concerned with I hope so and so doesn't see me doing this and yet it is all being written down in heaven. What we speak and have spoken will be screamed from the housetop, right? Another mark of a sincere faith is: 3. A faith that is transparent to Yahweh, striving to overcome sin, attentive to discipline.
If we love Him we don't want to grieve Him; He is
ready to be our strength if we call upon him and we seek His faith during temptations, difficulties and trials. We need to be willing to look to Him to be our strength during those times. Will we just be transparent? And just be totally, completely, fully open and honest with him? Because guess what? We are already transparent. I mean, He already knows! And, do we fail to seek out wisdom; maybe because we don't want to read the scripture today because I am afraid of what I might find, and then I have to change and I don't want to change. He knows all those little thoughts going on. Just admit! Yahweh, I have a problem, I don't want to change!
Yahweh, I have a problem, my faith toward you I know
is not sincere enough for you to be pleased with it. Don't deceive yourself and pretend like nothing is going on, that nothing is wrong! When down deep He already knows it is wrong; it's whether you want to confess that or not and admit it! Psalm 32:1-6 32 Blessed is he whose transgression is for given, Whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. 3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my groaning all the day long. He couldn't stand it, he knew he had done something he shouldn't have done, but he kept quiet about it, he didn't confess it; but his bones were groaning. 4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah 5 I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh,"
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Selah 6 For this cause everyone who is righteous shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; So you don't confess your sins, you don't acknowledge it; you just go on in your sin. You don't want to confess it, because then you will have to stop, and you don't want to stop because you flesh loves it so much. Are we willing to look to Him to be our strength in times of temptations? Or are we going to act as if He is not around and pretend like He is not the watcher of men? And behave as those who thought, well Yahweh seeth not? Will we choose to love him or will we stray from him and choose another kingdom to follow after? Will we seek to walk in His image we are created to be - walking in His image; or will we walk in the image of the rebellious enemy, Satan, the devil who doesn't want to do the father's will? That's my question. Our decisions tell the story of our lives and it will tell the story of our lives on judgment day. And will determine our ultimate destiny. Those little heart decisions will be manifest on that final day of judgment. They will come forth, they will be seen. You might as well acknowledge it. You might as well admit it. It's there, he sees everything.
Just confess it!
A profession of faith now doesn't mean that you are automatically saved; you have to have a repentant heart. That means you turn away from unrighteousness and turn to righteousness. Romans 2 say that the goodness of Yahweh leads us to repentance. So we confess our sins.
We need to have the lifestyle that is
concerned with the will of the Father; that really, is genuinely concerned about the will of the Father. And we have to have a heightened sensitivity to what His will might be in every situation.
So it is not just a profession Yahushua
mastered that determines whether our faith is genuine; it's really if He is our Master. You could say He's master, but not act like He is.
It's whether we are willing to walk away from
the world and live a life that is genuinely in hot pursuit of Yahweh's will.
So we need to get on our faces if we enjoying the
things that Yahweh hates; listening to the things he despises and we act like the world; we look like the world, have the aroma of the world. One scripture says, do not love the world. 1 John 2:15-17 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust
of it; but he who does the will of Elohim abides
forever. Do we want to abide forever? What will Yahweh say about us? Will He say that man did not love the world; that woman did not love the world or the things in the world? What will He say about you?
Will we come before Him so ashamed of our love for
worldly things and our unconfessed sin; that sin had a hold on us that we liked it too much and we wanted it to have a hold of us because we enjoyed that!
And then we have not confessed our sins, we
have not repented of our sins. We go on in our sin, we live in our sins because we love our sins and not find favor in the Day of Judgment. You can't treat Yahweh though as a vending machine; up goes the pray, down comes the forgiveness. It has to be real, real sincere prayer.
Like He has to forgive you even though you didn't
repent; even though you didn't care you have done the wrong that He has to forgive you. You get a get our hell free card! You got your little card you're going to wave to Him on your final day. Doesn't work that way! Hebrews 10:26-29 26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? Wow, strong words! We're talking about unconfessed sin. Just living in sin! Strong words!
Now what if we hadn't done these things?
What if we actually cared when we transgressed? What if we, although we may have sinned in our weaknesses, came to Him again, and again, and again; asking for deliverance, asking for forgiveness, asking for mercy, confessing our sins, desiring His strength and His power to do the right thing? What if our attitude consisted of a zeal for His ways and we despised ourselves when we failed him? Will He forgive us?
Yes He would.
1 John 1:9 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
But you know all these things they take place in

the privacy of our prayer life; a place that Yahweh
alone sees and discerns. It's not for me, Tom Martincic to decide whether this applies to you or not; it's only up to me to share with you that Yahweh, the watcher of men, behold your attitude and your actions.
And, He will determine whether you are worthy of
condemnation and judgment or forgiveness. And consistently He forgives those who humble themselves before Him; who have a sincere desire to please Him; who truly love Him and want His favor in their life. And want Yahweh to look upon them and say, well done good and faithful servant! Because wouldn't it be wonderful if our actions, and our deeds, and our humility, and our attitude were actually secretly good! Yahweh weighs every thought, right? Proverbs 15:3 3 The eyes of Yahweh are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good. He also sees the good you are doing. People might judge you and say you are evil, you have done this bad thing; but He knows whether your intent wasn't evil or whether your intent was really actually good. You know sometimes even you don't what your intent is, because sometimes our hearts deceives us as desperately wicked. Who can know it? We think our intentions were good; but if we really sat there and meditated on what was really going on, what was really happening in our hearts, we might have to admit our intentions were not all necessarily one hundred percent good. You know Job a man who Yahweh called blameless, who feared Elohim and hated evil; he paid attention, he knew that Yahweh watched his ways. Job 31:1-4 31 "I have made a covenant with my
eyes; Why then should I look upon a young woman?
2 For what is the allotment of Elohim from above, And the inheritance of the Almighty from on high? 3 Is it not destruction for the wicked, And disaster for the workers of iniquity? 4 Does He not see my ways, And count all my steps?
So he decided to make this agreement with his
eyeballs. Okay eyeballs you are only going to look at the right things. So when you see a young woman and she's not dressed the way she should be or she's not - you're not going to look. Because Yahweh, He sees you! You see her, while He sees you. He's counting your steps, and He says, destruction will be for the wicked; disaster for workers of iniquity. So, he feared Yahweh. And the awareness of Yahweh's eyes being upon him all the time and he feared Yahweh, shunned evil. But notice He counts your steps, one, two, three, four, five, six; and He is also counting your hairs. Matthew 10:30 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. I guess it's easy for Him to count my hairs in comparison to other people; but our hairs are numbered. Why is He numbering the hairs on your head? And why is He counting your steps? 2 Chronicles 16:9 9 For the eyes of Yahweh run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. He's looking around. Okay, where is the loyal man? Where is he? Where is the faithful man? Who can I show myself strong for?
He's looking for the ones who love Him with their
hearts; who have a sincere faith; who are not willing to be hypocrites. But are willing to do righteous things even if Yahweh alone will see! Oh, that will please Him greatly. It will show that we really care about what He says and what He sees.
Scripture says: 1 Peter 3:12 12 For the eyes of
Yahweh are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of Yahweh is against those who do evil."
And so, if we ponder the eyes of Yahweh continually
being upon us, will we do anything different; will be a little better overcoming temptation? Those are the questions. Why is He looking at us though? Why is He always staring at us? Have you ever wondered that? What is it about me that He is always looking at me; judging everything I do and looking at me? Why does He do that? Let me ask you a question - have ever got you something new; you bought something you like it, an outfit, or a car, or a house - you just look at it! You're always looking at it because you like what you bought, you like what you got. Or, have you ever just, you know, look at your family and just smile because you love them?
That's why He's looking at you.
That's why He's counting your steps and counting the hairs of your head; because He really, really does love you! He really does! If He didn't love you He wouldn't care what you did. He would watch self destruct and take no notice. He's a jealous Elohim. Why is He jealous? He's jealous because He loves you, He cares about jealous is because you made a covenant with your you. Wives, how many of you wouldn't be jealous of your husbands if he was looking at another woman with delight and lust? Husbands, how many of you wouldn't be jealous if
spouse; you made a commitment to each other
your wife began drawing her affections toward another man? Because you love them; and the reason why you're
that you would have nobody else in your life.
Well, we made a commitment to Yahweh the day we decided to serve Him and receive Yahushua. And Yahweh deserves our commitment; He deserves no less. There is no Elohim but Him! He's jealous because He knows the other gods; the other things of this age will only cause us to turn away from what the true way of love really is. We won't be able to even love another person properly until we love Him.
So He is just, He's holy, and loving.
He's always in observation. Not because He hates you, and wants to stand over you with a whip and beat you; because He loves you.
Don't you place your eyes, and affections, and
concerns, and attention on what you love?
In fact, what and who we love can often be
determined by the amount of attention that we happen to give, right? And so Yahweh's attention is always on us, not because he hates us and wants to bring us to damnation; but because He loves us. He wants to show Himself strong towards us; He wants to bless us for our good deeds. He wants to care about us and our afflictions. If we will only turn our eyes and hearts away from the things that are not; the things that do not profit; the things that will not help us in the day of trouble! And keep our eyes focused on the maker of heaven and earth; the one who is in control of all things, then we will have what we really need. And, we will find that the one who loves us and cares about us is actually able to help us and pull us out of the miry pit we've dug ourselves in and fell into.
And when we're sad and weary, and we're
struggling: Psalm 56:8 8 You number my
wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are
they not in Your book?
Are they not in Your book?
Think about that! All the tears that we have cried, He has written it all down and we'll be glad He was watching during
those times, right!
When we're hurting and realize He cares. Now He never promised us we will never have trouble in this life; He just promises to walk with us through it all. If we are willing to make that connection to Him, because He does care about us! And, He is all about love. 1 John 4:8 8 He who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love.
That's what He is!
Deuteronomy 32:1-4 32 "Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech
distill as the dew, As raindrops on the tender
herb, And as showers on the grass. 3 For I proclaim the name of Yahweh: Ascribe greatness to our Elohim. 4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A Elohim of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He. Psalm 34:8 8 Oh, taste and see that Yahweh is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Do you know what the most terrifying thing in the Bible will be for a lot of people; the most terrifying thing? Is that Yahweh is good!
Now the reason why it's so terrifying is that He is
good; is that He made us in His image and He made us to be good! And so, when we meet Him on that final day and He sees we've not been good, His goodness will terrify us. Because what are we going to do. I mean if He just pardons all the wicked and lets them all go, He is no longer good and just. He is not a just and good judge, right! Imagine if all of the judges in our own society let all the criminals out of prison and never sends a single person to prison, never punishes them for any evil thing that was ever done; will they be a good judge or a bad judge? We know the answer. And, so Yahweh, the fact that He is good judge and unless He looks at us and say we're good, we can't enter the fellowship with Him. So how can He call us into fellowship with Him and still be holy if we are not holy. Well there was a sent one from the Father. Isaiah 53:6 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And Yahweh has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. And He was willing to bear our sins.
But the only way He'll do it is if we are willing to
repent; that means turn away from it. It doesn't mean tomorrow you're perfect; you'll never make another mistake. It just means you are now in hot pursuit of righteousness with a sincere faith.
How do you know whether you have a sincere heart
change; a genuine heart change? The sin that you once loved, do you now hate? Are you growing in the knowledge and becoming more and more like Yahushua? Or are you growing stale and have no real passion for truth? For righteousness in yourself, let alone other people? That's one of the big tests, whether our faith
really took.
You can't dwell forever in immaturity and still claim to be a believer. You have to grow. And Yahweh knows where the line is; I'm not going to pretend to know. Yahweh knows when someone crosses that line.
So these are the attributes, some marks of
a sincere faith * A faith that loves. * A faith that lives as though Yahweh is always in attendance, and paying close attention. * A faith that is transparent to Yahweh, striving to overcome sin, attentive to discipline. When we recognize something negative happening in our life, we're like could I have done something that could have brought this about? And, pay attention, maybe its Yahweh's discipline. Maybe it's just a test. But we need to be attentive to discipline. I tend to want to assume its discipline, and if it's not; then okay! I'm being tested either way, but just in case it might be discipline. Try to look for something that maybe I have done to bring this on myself. So, be attentive to discipline! Another mark: 4.
A full-time faith that has yielded ALL to Yahweh

Deuteronomy 6:5 5 You shall love Yahweh your
Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. There is all, all, and all. Heart, soul, and strength (the Hebrew reads muchness). Yahweh didn't say give me a piece of that heart over there; I will like to have some of that heart. He didn't say He was hoping to get some of that attention from you. No, he said He wants everything.
All of it!
And all your soul too! In fact everything you have He wants it. Why? Because He owns it anyway (chuckle)! He made you. So, you might as well recognize it.
Next verse:
Deuteronomy 6:6-9 6 "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Now, someone who does that I'd say they are pretty much sold out for Yahweh. They got this word everywhere; written on their gates, on their house; talk about them all day long. It just overflows! Spilling out of his heart! It's in the heart and it's just spilling out.
Now that's a picture of a home that's given
themselves to Yahweh. They are talking about His commandments all day long Yahweh's word is at the center of everything. He doesn't say, one day a week come and pay attention to me. It's not like Shabbat shows up and He introduces himself (handshake gesture). How are you doing? It's nice to see you again. It's been a while since I've seen you. You know, good to see you again. Come on over. Visit for a while and when Shabbat ends - see you later; see you next week. (chuckle) It doesn't work that way! He wants all of our hearts, every day, all day. Keep talking about Him - sitting in your house, walking by the way, when you're lying down, you're rising up, all you heart, all your soul, all you strength. And you know what? When you love someone you can't stop talking about them, because you love them. You want to bless them. You want to have intimate communication with them. You want to listen to what they like and don't like, and you want to talk to them. And so that's what Yahweh wants from us. He wants to talk to us. He wants our attention. Deuteronomy 10:12-13 12 "And now, Israel, what
does Yahweh your Elohim require of you, but to
fear Yahweh your Elohim, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul, So also He not only want you to love Him, but to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul 13 and to keep the commandments of Yahweh and His statutes which I command you today for your good?
It's for your good, for your own benefit that you
keep His commandments. 1 John 5:2-4 2 By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and keep His commandments. You can't love any human being until you first love Elohim and keep His commandments. Then you can love some body else. 3 For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of Elhim overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. They are a blessing. Well, thank you Yahweh that on the Shabbat I can't do this! HalleluYah! It's not a burden for me, I'm glad to do it. Thank you Yahweh that I have to check the ingredients on this package here and make sure there is no pork in it.
Not a burden!
Now wait a minute - I had somebody I talked to yesterday, I can't remember who it was, I was talking to him on the phone and he said, yeah people tell me you're under the big heavy yoke of the law, you know. Just bearing you down! You got to check all those ingredients and make sure you're doing this right and doing that right! I've got the freedom in Christ; I can live how I please and I don't have to do all of that, see! Well it's not Yahweh's word that's putting the burden on us, it's the world. Because the rest of the world does not fear Elohim, the do not observe these commandments and they lay a burden on us. We've got to check all the ingredients, you have to make sure it's clean; you can't have this, you can't have that. Why? Because the world doesn't care about the commandments of Elohim and so they are putting the burden on us, not Yahweh. And so some people will say, if it's too hard to
do I'm probably being a legalist.
I don't want to be legalist! Yahushua says in Matthew 23:23, Scribes and Pharisees, you pay tithe on anise, and cumin, and mint and all these things and yet you neglect the weighty matters of the law. He says, these you ought to have done, what? Pay tithes of the little things but not leave the others undone. You have to do both! You have to do both! Because listen, Yahweh is not part time Elohim, He is always on the throne. Our obedience to Him always applies no matter how small it might be. You know Yahweh is not on the throne some of the time; He's always on the throne. He is a 24/7 Elohim! He doesn't stop being Elohim when Shabbat services end and He doesn't bid you goodbye. He doesn't stop being Elohim when you go and do what you want. Tell you what, if you are a part time believer trying to serve a full time Elohim, then you are in big trouble. Yahushua has a word for that, it is called
"hyprocrisy".
Matthew 23:27-28 27 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
See, they thought Yahweh was only a part time
Elohim. Luke 12:1b-3 12 "Beware of the leaven of the
Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2 For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. 3 Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops. Romans 12:9 9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. You know most of the time when you are having a problem with a particular sin is because you like the sin. Ask Yahweh to teach you to have a holy hatred for it,
so you could have His mind about it.
Ask him; give you a holy hatred for it. Give you a holy hatred for cigarettes, or drugs, or alcohol, or lust, or whatever. Ask Him to give you a holy hatred for it. To have His mind on it! 1 Peter 2:1-3 2 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,[a] 3 if indeed you have tasted that Yahweh is gracious. Have you tasted it; His grace? Have you tasted it? It's beautiful isn't it? Isn't it sweet? Amazing grace how sweet the sound!
So lay aside these other things.
I know one brother I talked to a few months ago. He said, I have been completely delivered from lust, because I fasted and I took one hour a day of
doing nothing but crying out to Yahweh to deliver
me from lust. Over and over, I cried out, I cried out, I cried out, I cried out! And within a week, he was completely delivered; he hated lust. And he hasn't had a problem since. How about that? You know Yahweh is looking for full-time believers and in the midst of part time part-timers. He is looking for those who have a sincere faith and wants to put Him first. I mean, guess what, He is already first; He already is. Whether you want to live you life in recognition of that is up to you. And that means he needs to be first in every decision that you make; in every expression of will; every action, every thought.
So my question for all of us is this - Is Yahweh
really first in our life or are we first?
Do we have a passion for the things that He has a
passion for?
Or do we have a passion for things that have no
eternal value whatsoever?
Now today if you live like a full-time believer, you
will be called a fanatic. People will tell you, oh you taking this religion thing too far. You're an extremist! Maybe a legalist! If you devote too much time, too much attention, too much care, too much concern about walking in
His holiness, uprightness and truth, most people
will think, oh you're taking this religion thing way too far. You know it's funny, because they never say that about other things. For instance, look at the emphasis people place on sports. People give up their whole lives, sometimes even their childhood so they could train and practice and practice and practice and practice. And they fight through blood sweat and tears, just so that one day they could have that shiny trophy, that shiny little medal they could put in their glass case and admire; which will one day perish with them. And yet nobody say, oh they are fanatics, they are extremists; they're putting too much into the sports thing. They're getting too much into that. No one ever says that. And yet if you place the same amount of emphasis and strength and will and time and energy in the spiritual things, people got a problem with that; they don't like it. Why? Because their conscience is bothering them, they don't want to have to do all that that you are doing. And, so they put it down.
I once had a relative that said, yea them people over
there - they were real strict Christians - they spend so much time worrying about the next world, they're not living in this one. That's what they said. Well, how convenient! (chuckle) What does it mean to live in this one? What it means to live in this one is that yes, we can enjoy life, but within the parameters of Yahweh's will for us. And that's where joy is really found; that's where we are really going to be happy. That's where we are going to find completeness, and
fulfillment, and peace.
All the other things that people spend their time chasing will not give them the peace they are looking for; will not give them the joy they are looking for. And to me, living in this world is life in Messiah. For me to live is Messiah; to die is actually gain.
So people they put all their - blood, sweat, and
tears in college, or sports or good job, and nobody ever says, oh fanatics.
No one ever says that!
Why? 1 Timothy 4:8 8 For bodily exercise profits a little, but reverence is profitable for all things,
having promise of the life that now is and of that

which is to come.
People don't realize the level of dedication Yahweh really wants from us. He wants all of our heart, all of our soul, every ounce of our being; He wants it! He deserves it! 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. Like in the same way people put all their energy into winning this particular race, they give every thing they have, they move their feet as fast at they possibly can in their zeal to win the race. He says that's the way I want you to run.
Give everything you got to Yahweh.
Love Him with all your heart, soul, and strength.
25 And everyone who competes for the prize is
temperate in all things. You're self-controlled. Oh, they follow the rules of the game; there will never be penalties so they won't win the game if they're not temperate. Oh, the rules of this life we live in, we're supposed to live by. You don't want to be disqualified and then lose the prize of eternal life. Do you? Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. 26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. 27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified. Just as how they discipline their bodies to be the fastest runner or the most skilled basketball, football or track star, whatever. They discipline their body, they put effort into it. He say I also discipline my body too, and not let my body do what my body wants; which is give up and go serve myself. Lust of the flesh! Lust of the eye! Pride of life!
See we are made for greater things than a
perishable crown. Those things are not really going to satisfy us or make us happy anyway.
We were made for greater things than to be a part
time believer. He is not a part time Elohim and we shouldn't be part time believers. We are created to walk in love and holiness and reverence toward Yahweh and compassion toward our fellow man. We are created to serve one another; to bless one another; to reach out to one another; to live our lives serving Yahweh and man. Some of us have not had that mentality; haven't really had that encounter with Yahweh to the degree they were permanently changed.
We need to have that encounter with Yahweh.
Seek it! If you haven't had it, seek it. If you don't understand why people like us are so - our lives are about Yahweh. You don't get it, you don't understand it, and want to know why. What is it that we are getting? Ask Him to give you that kind of encounter with Him
and be touched by His love.
There's nothing like it! Nothing like it anywhere on the earth! Nothing like it in the human experience but to be touched by the love of Yahweh!
Have you been touched in that way?
If you haven't, seek it!
It's sort of like you know, sometimes we are so
caught up in things that we don't pay attention to what's going on. What if one day I saw you drowning and I went out
there and I pulled you to safety.
You'll probably say, you know Tom anything you ever want, you ask me and I will do it for you. And I say no, it's not me; give praise to my Father in heaven. Oh no, seriously Tom, whatever you want, anything; you saved my life. I owe you everything! Ever think about that! Yahushua he not only saved your life in this age, He's giving us eternal life. He saved our lives for good and do we have that now - anything you want us to do for you Yahushua, I'll do it! Whatever you say goes, I'll do it.
James 1:22 22 But be doers of the word, and not

hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

The messages I've shared lately, did they bring
change to your life?
The scriptures that you read that convicted you
recently; did it bring change to your life? Or, did you look at yourself and the mirror and say, oh look at that spot there, I need to get it cleaned off and then you walk away. You clean it off for a while and then go about your business. Did the word get planted into your heart and take root and bear fruit? Or was it just another, uh that's a good message there; boy I needed that and then a month later you done forget all about it? Ezekiel had that problem in his day. Ezekiel 33:30-32 30 "As for you, son of man, the children of your people are talking about you beside the walls and in the doors of the houses; and they speak to one another, everyone saying to his brother, 'Please come and hear what the word is that comes from Yahweh.' 31 So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain. 32 Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them. So when you hear the word of Yahweh, the words of His law, the prophets, the Messiah; and you hear them and you say, wow those are fine words there. Fine words, lovely song! Is that all? When we hear the words of Yahweh are we just the crowd standing there in the sidelines yelling yeah, yeah, halleluYah, I agree, I agree. Or are we going Yahweh help me, help me, I want to live this out, this is awesome; I want to be this way! Strengthen me, change me!
Jeremiah 15:16 16 Your words were found, and I
ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O Yahweh Elohim of hosts. Jeremiah rejoiced in Yahweh's words. He took them and placed them in his being. He let them become a part of who He was, and that's the mark of a sincere believer. For one who has sincere faith; Yahweh's words are not just pretty songs, things we like and agree with; like we're on this team over here so we rah, rah, rah this team wins; it's more than that.
It's a passion for living out His word and seeking
to make it a permanent part of our experience in our life and in our practice. And so, a sincere faith will have a love for the word and for the truth. 5. A faith that loves Yahweh's word and seeks the truth in all things. You can't love Yahushua until you love the word; because He is the word. One of the things I'm asked about - someone says do you think that guy is a believer? I'm looking, well Yahweh knows, but he looks like he loves the word. If we don't love the word how can we love Yahushua?
Are we in hot pursuit of learning how to live a
life that's more pleasing to the Father?
Are we pursuing the truth?
Suppose you were a tradesman and you had to teach a young man a trade of what it means to be a carpenter. And the guy comes to work and you teach how to do
things and he says, yep, yep, yep.
You can tell his mind was somewhere else.
He acknowledged what you said, he recognized it,
but then he goes back to do the carpentry work and he make the same mistake over, and over, and over again. And you could tell he really wasn't listening. Like, he didn't really value the time that you were taking to teach him how to be a carpenter! How much longer will it be before you say, you're fired? You don't really want to learn how to be a carpenter; you just want the benefit of being an employee and making the money. You don't really care to be a carpenter. To really care to be like Yahushua will depend on the attentiveness we have toward doing His will and learning His will and saying okay, this how we do it. Okay, alright, now Yahweh help me to remember this. Now you might make a mistake; you might out of weakness you forget or you don't do something right; but you're really trying. The same carpenter -- young student, maybe not the sharpest knife in the drawer; but he really tried. You could work with that. Even if he doesn't have the right stuff! Maybe he doesn't have the, you know, the mechanical ability naturally, you have to kind of teach it to him; you could work with that, right!
But if the guy don't want to learn what can you do?

So whether we really are real in our walk and
sincere in our walk; a lot of it has to do with whether we really want to learn how to be like Yahushua. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception
among those who perish, because they did not
receive the love of the truth, that they might be
saved.
We can't even be saved unless we love the truth. 11 And for this reason Elohim will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. There is a connection between having pleasure in unrighteousness and not receiving a love for the truth; and therefore believing the lie. It's all interconnected. Some people live their entire life believing lies because they are not pursuing truth. They really don't care one way or another what the truth is. If they look like their buddies at their church or their buddies in their congregation, that's good enough for them. But you know if a man had a son, and the son didn't
understand his father's will and he did something
wrong because of that what could the father do? He will take his son aside and explain it to him what he should be doing and go on from there. Now what if that son, while his father was trying to talk to him and he listened but then he went off and did it differently; then he didn't want to hear it, he didn't want to listen. He didn't want to have to do what his father said, so he didn't know the truth, but he wanted to do his own thing. His son will have to be disciplined. If the son wouldn't hear discipline, that at that point why would he be even be worthy of even being called a son, because he was no longer acting like a son. You know almost everything we need to know in order to be saved can be seen in a father/son relationship. It really is! Look, Yahweh sent in judgment on those who had pleasure in unrighteousness. And so therefore they were judged and did not receive the love of the truth and therefore they believed the lie. Matthew 7:22-23 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' Lawlessness - what the Greek word has is violation of the law. Faith is not necessarily how many miracles come out of you, how many miracles you can do, even in His name; it is determined by your willingness to practice righteousness.
Forget the miracle workers, it's all power,
signs and lying wonders. It doesn't matter! I am burdened by the possibility that there are some listening to this broadcast, who will here these words "I never knew you; depart from Me".
And, so I am explaining to you, we must have a
passion for truth; we must have compassion for our fellow men; we must have growth in our spiritual walk. If we don't have those things due a lack of interest, then we are not giving Yahweh all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our strength.
The part time believer may be doing the Shabbat and
the feast days, and the eating clean, and calling on His name; other than that there is no change in their life, there's no change in their ways and a false confidence as in the fact that they do these things. False confidence! That's not the only thing he requires of you.
Beware of because you have this one thing different
that other people don't believe that somehow gives you the ticket; your ticket's punched your in. Almost every denomination has their little piece of steak that they got and they think they got the whole cow, because they have that one piece of meat. Every denomination seem like they have one of those. And they talk about it all the time; isn't that steak wonderful! Wasn't that the best piece of meat there is?
That's all they talk about.
That's why I don't just talk about Shabbat and feasts and Torah and all, I get into the heart of things because that's where the rubber meets the road. I could probably get quite an audience, if every week I talk about, oh, we got to keep Torah. No, I need to talk about things that make you uncomfortable. Makes me uncomfortable sometimes to!
In a father/son relationship, the son is
always willing to hear what the father has to say. His son doesn't just take a little bit of what his dad says and go - well if I just do what my dad said to do five years ago I'll be alright - he'll like me forever. Well, guess what? It's a continual walk. Act of faith; faith that's aware of Yahweh's eyes at all times and ongoing growth. Pretty soon you'll have to get off the bottle and not act like a baby. You got to grow up! A sincere faith has a love for our father's words, our father's wonderful ways at all times.
Not just lip service; not just Shabbat service.
A faith that when confronted with one's sin will confess it and receive it and love it!
Are we willing to walk this out?

Is there anyone here who is not walking out the
sincere faith?
You know all the messages I share are meaningless
unless we have that foundation. Does your life honor our Father in heaven? Do others see fruit and know you are different from the world? Does Yahweh see you're different than the world in many different ways, in many different aspects?
If you are lacking that commitment or even if you
