STEPPING STONES to the KINGDOM of YaHuWaH (BELIEVE)

  1. 1. ‫אמן‬ 'âman aw-man‚ A primitive root; properly to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once to go to the right hand: - hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, steadfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right. BELIEF
  2. 2. The ALEF is formed by two yuds, one to the upper right and the other to the lower left, joined by a diagonal vav. These represent the higher and lower waters and the firmament between them, Water is first mentioned in the Torah in the account of the first day of Creation: "And the Raukh of YaHuWaH hovered over the surface of the water." At this time the higher and the lower waters were indistinguishable; their state is referred to as "water in water." On the second day of Creation YaHuWaH separated the two waters by "stretching" the firmament between them. The MEM, the letter of "water" (mayim) symbolizes the fountain of the Divine Wisdom of Torah. Just as the waters of a physical fountain (spring) ascend from their unknown subterranean source (the secret of the abyss in the account of Creation) to reveal themselves on earth, so does the fountain of wisdom express the power of flow from the superconscious source. In the terminology of Kabbalah, this flow is from keter ("crown") to chochmah ("wisdom"). The stream is symbolized in Proverbs as "the flowing stream, the source of wisdom." In the beginning of Creation, when Infinite Light filled all reality, YaHuWaH contracted His Light to create hollow empty space, as it were, the "place" necessary for the existence of finite worlds. Into this vacuum YaHuWaH drew down, figuratively speaking, a single line of light, from the Infinite Source. This ray of light is the secret of the letter VAV. Though the line is singular in appearance, it nonetheless possesses two dimensions, an external as well as an internal force, both of which take part in the process of Creation and the continuous interaction between the creative power and created reality. ‫אמן‬ Vav , Mem Alef
  3. 3. The Hebrew word for believe is from the same Hebrew root as faith It means to stand sure as a firm pillar. Hebrew definition H539 ‫אמן‬ ‘ âman aw-man’ A primitive root; properly to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be)firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (in Isa_30:21; by interchange for H541) to go to the right hand: – hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, steadfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right. It is the same word as ‘Amein’ The Mashiyach is the Amein…the Faithful One, the Sure foundation Belief, Believe, Believers
  4. 4. 1 Qorinthíym3:9 For we are YaHuWaH’s fellow-workers, ye are YaHuWaH’s cultivated field, the House-edifice of the mighty One (Bë´yth-’Äl). 1Qorinthíym 3:11 For no one is capable of placing a different foundation besides this One Which is laid out, Which is Yâhuwshúa`, the Anointed One! Chanówkh 97: 12 Woe to you who lay the foundation of fraud and deceit [false anointed], and who provoke the rebellion upon the earth, for by it you shall be consumed. Ber 15:5 . And He brought him outside and said, "Please gaze at the sky and count the stars--if you can count them!" And He told him, "This is what your seed will be like!" Ber 15:6 And he believed in YaHuWaH and He reckoned it to him for righteousness . Gal 3:6 Just as “’Avrâhâ´m believed in YaHuWaH, and He accounted it to him for righteousness "established" or "trustworthy
  5. 5. The Hebrew word for believe is from the same Hebrew root as faith It means to stand sure as a firm pillar. Pillar stulos (G4769), “ a column supporting the weight of a building," is used (a) metaphorically, of those who bear responsibility in the assembly, as of the elders in the assembly at Yerushalom of a local assembly as to its responsibility, in a collective capacity, to maintain the doctrines of the faith by teaching and practice, some would attach this and the next words to the statement in 1Ti_3:16; the connection in the Eng. versions seems preferable; (b) figuratively in Rev_3:12, indicating a firm and permanent position in the Raukhual, heavenly and eternal Temple of YaHuWaH; (c) illustratively, of the feet of the Envoy in the vision in Rev_10:1, seen as flames rising like columns of fire indicative of Sacredness and consuming power, and thus reflecting the glory of YâHuWsHúa as depicted in Rev_1:15; cf. Eze_1:7. Pillar
  6. 6. HOW DO WE DEFINE “ BELIEF” To credit upon the authority or testimony of another; to be persuaded of the truth of something upon the declaration of another, or upon evidence furnished by reasons, arguments, and deductions of the mind, or by other circumstances, than personal knowledge. When we believe upon the authority of another, we always put confidence in his veracity. When we believe upon the authority of reasoning, arguments, or a concurrence of facts and circumstances, we rest our conclusions upon their strength or probability, their agreement with our own experience, &c. To expect or hope with confidence; to trust. To believe in, is to hold as the object of faith. . "Ye believe in YaHuWaH, believe also in me." To believe on, is to trust, to place full confidence in, to rest upon with faith. "To them gave he power to become the sons of YaHuWaH , even to them that believe on his name." Let me put it simply We began to obey the Law in Faith because it is YaHuWaH's revealed will The difference between the old and Renewed Covenants In the old covenant times, people sacrificed after sinning not before Believe
  7. 7. You are given faith (belief, fidelity) as a gift, and that faith produces the “good works”: obedience to the Torot (instructions) of YaHuWaH. Our obedience is the fruit of His righteousness. The Temple of YaHuWaH is a picture of the Mashiyach , His body. When we believe in Him, it is likened to being a tent peg driven into the ground that holds the tent down. When we believe, we become a part of His Body. Of His flesh, and of His bones just as the tent peg becomes one with the tent when they are joined together. When looking at the Tabernacle and the Temple in the Scriptures, not only does it teach about the Mashiyach but it also teaches about His Body, His Bride And the scripture was fulfilled, that says: “And he believed in YaHuWaH, and He credited it to him for righteousness and he was called a “friend” of YaHuWaH. See ye then that a man is justified from works, and not from belief alone. 2 Chronicles 20: 7, Yshá`Yâhuw 41: 8
  8. 8. Bereshiyth 15:6 And he believed in YaHuWaH (and he counted it to him for Tzedakah The faith making Abram righteous wasn’t so much believing in YaHuWaH (as we usually speak of believing in YaHuWaH), as it was believing YaHuWaH. Those only believing in YaHuWaH (in the sense of believing He exists) are merely qualified to be demons James 2:19. Thou believest that there is one ALuaHiYM thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. The Faith of the forefathers Abraham received righteousness by Grace through Faith ( there is no other way) Ivrim 11:16 But now they (we) desire a better [country], that is, an heavenly: wherefore ALuaHiYM is not ashamed to be called their ALuaHiYM: for he hath prepared for them a city. Believed in YHWH
  9. 9. Ivrim 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into menuchah (rest), as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, if they shall enter into My menuchati rest, although the melakhto works, were finished from the foundation of the Olam Hazeh. This is our faith our belief in His redemption and blessings, we look forward to his Kingdom and long for his return So then those who are of the Faith are blessed with faithful Avraham. Rhomaios 4:5-8 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for tzedakah. Even as David also describeth the me'ushar (blessedness) of the man, unto whom ALuaHiYM imputeth tzedakah without works, [Saying], Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed [is] the man to whom YaHuWaH will not impute sin. hence we read
  10. 10. When some people learn that they are saved by YaHuWaH through faith, they start to worry. "Do I have enough faith?" they wonder. "Is my faith strong enough to save me?" These people miss the point. It is YâHuWsHúa HaMaSHiYaCH who saves us, not our feelings or actions, and he is strong enough to save us no matter how weak our faith is. YâHuWsHúa offers us salvation as a gift because he loves us, not because we have earned it through our powerful faith. What, then, is the role of faith? Faith is believing and trusting in YâHuWsHúa HaMaSHiYaCH and reaching out to accept his wonderful gift of salvation .What can we do to get rid of guilt? King David was guilty of terrible sins—adultery, murder, lying—and yet he experienced the joy of forgiveness. joy of forgiveness We, too, can have this joy when we quit denying our guilt and recognize that we have sinned, admit our guilt to YHWH and ask for his forgiveness, and let go of our guilt and believe that YaHuWaH has forgiven us. This can be difficult when a sin has taken root in our life over many years, when it is very serious, or when it involves others. We must remember that YâHuWsHúa is willing and able to forgive every sin. In view of the tremendous price he paid on the cross, it is arrogant to think that there is any sin too great for him to forgive. Even though our faith is weak, our conscience is sensitive, and our memory haunts us, YaHuWaH's Word declares that sins confessed are sins forgiven
  11. 11. Here is a gracious offer of pardon, and peace, and of all happiness. It shall not be in vain to seek YaHuWaH, now his word is calling to us, and his Raukh is striving with us. But there is a day coming when he will not be found. There may come such a time in this life; it is certain that at death and judgment the door will be shut. There must be not only a change of the way, but a change of the mind. We must alter our judgments about persons and things. It is not enough to break off from evil practices, we must strive against evil thoughts. To repent is to return to our Father, against whom we have rebelled. If we do so, YaHuWaH will multiply to pardon, as we have multiplied to offend. But let none trifle with this plenteous mercy, or use it as an occasion to sin. Men's thoughts concerning sin, YâHuWsHúa , and Sacredness, concerning this world and the other, vastly differ from YaHuWaH's; but in nothing more than in the matter of pardon. We forgive, and cannot forget; but when YaHuWaH forgives sin, he remembers it no more. The power of his word in the kingdoms of providence and grace, is as certain as in that of nature. Sacred truth produces a Raukhual change in the mind of men, which neither rain nor snow can make on the earth. It shall not return to the YaHuWaH without producing important effects. If we take a special view of the assembly, we shall find what great things YaHuWaH has done, and will do for it. The Jews shall come to their own land; this shall represent the blessings promised. Gospel grace will make a great change in men. Delivered from the wrath to come, the converted sinner finds peace in his conscience; and love constrains him to devote himself to the service of his Redeemer. Instead of being profane, contentious, selfish, or sensual, behold him patient, humble, kind, and peaceable. The hope of helping in such a work should urge us to spread the gospel of salvation. And do thou help us, O Raukh of all truth, to have such views of the fullness, freeness, and greatness of the rich mercy in YâHuWsHúa, as may remove from us all narrow views of sovereign grace. sovereign grace
  12. 12. THE TORAH SHOWS US THE NEED WE HAVE FOR A SAVIOUR 1 Yochanan 3:4 -6 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the Torah: for sin is the transgression of the Torah. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. THE LAW SHOWS US THE NEED WE HAVE FOR A SAVIOUR Ivrim12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, The Torah is the Law
  13. 13. Long-distance runners work hard to build endurance and strength. On race day, their clothes are lightweight and their bodies lean. To run the race that YaHuWaH has set before us, we must also strip off the excess weight that slows us down. How can we do that? Choose friends who are also committed to the race. Wrong friends will have values and activities that may deter you from the course. Much of your own weight may result from the crowd you run with. Make wise choices. Drop certain activities. That is, for you at this time these may be weight. Try dropping them for a while; then check the results in your life. Get help for addictions that disable you. If you have a secret "weight" such as pornography, gambling, or alcohol, admit your need and get help today. The Nätzräya life involves hard work. It requires us to give up whatever endangers our relationship with YHWH, to run with endurance, and to struggle against sin with the power of the Raukh HaQodesh. To live effectively, we must keep our eyes on YâHuWsHúa. We will stumble if we look away from him to stare at ourselves or at the circumstances surrounding us. We should be running for YâHuWsHúa, not ourselves, and we must always keep him in sight. WE LIVE OUR LIVES IN FAITH; PUTTING OUR LOVE FOR YaHuWaH INTO MOTION BY FOLLOWING HIS COMMANDMENTS HIS SACRED LAW Long distance runner
  14. 14. Rhomaios 5:1 -8 Therefore being justified by faith, we have shalom with ALuaHiYM through ALuaHiYM YaHuWsHua HaMaschiyach: By whom also we have access by emunah into this unmerited favour wherein we stand, and rejoice in tikvah of the glory of ALuaHiYM And not only [so], but we glory in tzorot (affliction, troubles) also: knowing that tzarah (trouble) worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, tikvah: And tikvah maketh not ashamed; because the love of ALuaHiYM is shed abroad in our hearts by the Ruakh HaQodesh which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Maschiyach died for the wicked. For scarcely for a tzadik will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But ALuaHiYM commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, HaMaschiyach died for us. AMEIN and AMEIN Finally
