24. Sometimes disagreements in how to run a ministry can cause people to go two different directions, such as Paul and Barnabas disagreeing over John called Mark, but in the end we must consider that we are still one body, so always be open to ministering together again in the future. (Acts 13:5; 15:39, 1st Corinthians 9:6, 2nd Timothy 4:11) Part 7

35. As the world and their behavior gets worse and worse, look at it as an evangelism opportunity rather than a reason to walk in fear and anxiety. Greater is He that’s in you than He who is in the world.(Acts 19:8-10; 1st John 4:4) Part 9

36. Do not cast out demons through methods used by unbelievers, such as forcing oaths, incantations or sprinkling “holy water.” Cast them out by rebuking them in the name of Yahushua. (Acts 19:13-17) Part 9

37. If you have repented from sin, don’t use your departure from sin as an opportunity to make money. Follow the practice of the Ephesians who burned the magic books rather than profiting from the sale of them. That’s true repentance.  (Acts 19:18-20) Part 9

38. Do not blaspheme, mock or ridicule the sins of others. Seek to have sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.(Acts 19:37, Titus 2:8) Part 10

39. Paul did not fail to declare the full counsel and will of Yahweh. Therefore, nothing in his writings should be understood as changing the Sabbath to the first day of the week or doing away with the law of Yahweh as spoken through Moshe. (Acts 20:27) Part 10

40. Beware of grievous wolves, who pervert the way of Yahweh, and draw people into violating Yahweh’s law. (Acts 20:28-31, Matthew 7:15-23) Part 10

44. Do not give into compromise by sinning against Yahweh, even if you think the end result will be that more people will be saved. We cannot do evil that good may come. (Acts 24:26-27, Rom. 3:8) Part 12

45. We are saved by faith, but it’s a living faith that works. Therefore do faith-driven works worthy of repentance. Faith without works is dead. (Acts 26:20, James 2:15-26) Part 12

48. Our willingness to have a thankful heart creates an environment of thanksgiving that moves Yahweh to work in the lives of others.

75. If you are a believer, recognize that you have now become a Jew inwardly, the seed of Abraham and part of the commonwealth of Israel who receives the promises of the new covenant, which is given to Israel.

(Romans 2:28, Galatians 2:20; 3:29, Ephesians 2:11-13, Jeremiah 31:31-34) Part 18

76. Never blame Yahweh for being unfaithful when men sin and do wrong. (Romans 3:1-4) Part 18

80. We are not under the law, but neither are we above the law. The law is in our hearts and minds, so that we may do it. Therefore, do not make void the law through faith. On the contrary, establish and cause the law to stand. (Romans 3:31) Part 19

81. Do not live your life under the law by doubting Yahushua can forgive your sins, or by believing that you can live a life of willful sin. (Romans 3:19; 6:15-16. Galatians 5:18, 1 John 1:9) Part 19

(Romans 7:21-8:2) Part 21

89. We have not been given a spirit of fear or a spirit of bondage again to fear. Therefore, walk in faith and trust rather than fear and anxiety, and for the joy set before you endure whatever suffering Yahweh allows in your life, knowing that He will work all things together for your good and for His glory. (Romans 8:14-28, 2nd Corinthians 4:16, 5:1-2, Hebrews 12:2) Part 22

90.Trials and tribulations are a normal part of being a believer. Therefore, don’t assume that they are a sign that Yahweh is against you, or that Yahweh hates you.

While He knows your choices beforehand and through that predestines us to life or death, don’t let that discourage you into thinking you have no choice but to commit the sins you are tempted to commit. You can choose life! (Deuteronomy 30:19, Joshua 24:15, Romans 9:11-24) Part 24

114. Render taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. Otherwise, you will distract them from your true testimony. Owe no one anything, but to always love them as Yahushua did. (Romans 13:6-10) Part 29

115. Awaken out of your sleep by casting off works of darkness such as revelry, drunkenness, lewdness, lust, strife and envy. Instead, put on the Master Yahushua, making no provision for the flesh to obey its lusts. (Romans 13:11-14, 1st Thessalonians 5:5-8) Part 29

116. Be sober and maintain sobriety by being filled with the Spirit rather than being drunk with wine and/or high on cannabis & other drugs.  (Romans 13:13-14; Proverbs 31:4-7; Leviticus 10:9-11). Part 30

126. Cease from the spirit of the world expressed in carnal deeds such as envy, strife, divisions, and other works of the flesh. Instead, walk in the Spirit of Elohim.

144. Use the right bait when trying to minister to others by loving them enough to mentally place yourself in their position, so that you know how to more effectively win their soul and/or guide them to righteousness. (1st Corinthians 9:19-23, Acts 17:22-24; 22:1-3, Proverbs 11:30, Daniel 12:3)

146. Be content to trust Yahweh’s plan and leadership in your life no matter what happens rather than complaining about your circumstances and putting Yahweh to the test.
(1st Corinthians 10:10)

147.The examples of what happened to various men in scripture who refused to believe and heed the voice of Yahweh were written for our learning. Take heed to those admonitions, lest when you think you stand…you fall. (1st Corinthians 10:11)

149. Don’t practice syncretism by worshiping Yahweh in the way the pagans worshiped their idols, like what is seen in Christmas and Easter observances. Yahweh is not honored when we give Him or our Savior the character traits of idols. (1st Corinthians 10:21, Deuteronomy 12:29-32, Jeremiah 10:1-4)

150. Look for believers who walk out the example of Yahushua that you want to imitate and imitate them. (1st Corinthians 11:1)

154. Love is patient and longsuffering. Walk in it. (1st Corinthians 13:4)

159. Do not behave rudely because love does not behave rudely. (1st Corinthians 13:5)

160. Love is not self-seeking. Therefore, let nothing be done through selfish ambition, but seek the well-being, needs and interests of others. (1st Corinthians 13:5)

161. Do not allow yourself to be provoked to selfish anger, for this is not an expression of love. (1st Corinthians 13:5)
