what is the gospel of SALVATION? (How cAN i BE SAVED?)
Romans 6:23 KJV: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God (Elohim) is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
John 3:16 KJV For God (YAH) so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 KJV For God (YAH) did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 KJV He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (YAH).
Acts 2:38 KJV Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Rom 10:9 KJV: …That If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God (YAH) hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 KJV: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
1 John 5:13-15: I am writing this to you so that you may know that you have eternal life—you that believe in the Son of God (The Most High YAH). 14 We have courage in God's (YAH's) presence, because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will. 15 He hears us whenever we ask him; and since we know this is true, we know also that he gives us what we ask from him.
HOW DO I KEEP MY SALVATION?
YHWH has given us Ten Commandments to live by, as well as statutes, of which his son Jesus Christ (YAHUSHUA) confirms by summarizing these commandments into two categories:
do you have to be a jew (hebrew) to be saved?
Rom 2:28 BBE You are not a true Jew (Hebrew) if you are only a Jew in your physical body. True circumcision is not only on the outside of the body.
Rom 2:29 BBE A true Jew is one who is a Jew (Hebrew) inside. True circumcision is done in the heart. It is done by the Spirit, not by the written law. And anyone who is circumcised in the heart by the Spirit gets praise from God (YAH), not from people.
YAH is the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. To the Hebrew, He is our Heavenly/Spiritual Father. Psalm 145:18 says "The LORD" (YAH) is near to all who call on Him, to all who call out to Him in truth. John 4:23 says But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him.
Jesus (YAHUSHUA or Y'SHUA for short) is the Son of the Most High YHWH ELOHIM and he is our kinsman redeemer, meaning he is the image of the most YHWH in the form of a man, who came through the tribe of Judah.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
This makes him a Hebrew in the context of the flesh. He first preached to his brethren, the Hebrews, repentance through baptism for the remission of sins AND faith that he was the Messiah, spoken of by the prophets of old. However his brethren, the Hebrews, rejected him, but because the Most High YAH is rich in mercy and grace, this rejection ultimately opened up salvation to all men and women of every nation, tribe, and/or tongue. Therefore salvation is open to whomever worships the Most High YAH in spirit and truth, not according to the flesh!
Tit 2:11 KJV For the grace of [YHWH] that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Rom 1:16 KJV For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of [YHWH] unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Romans 11:11 ERV So I ask: When the Hebrews fell, did that fall destroy them? No! But their mistake brought salvation to those who are not Jews. The purpose of this was to make the Jews jealous.
Romans 11:12 ERV Their mistake brought rich blessings to the world. And what they lost brought rich blessings to the non-Jewish people. So surely the world will get much richer blessings when enough Jews become the kind of people God wants.
Romans 11:13 ERV Now I am speaking to you people who are not Jews. I am an apostle to the non-Jewish people. So while I have that work, I will do the best I can.
Romans 11:14 ERV I hope I can make my own people jealous. That way, maybe I can help some of them to be saved.
Romans 11:15 ERV God turned away from the Jews. When that happened, he became friends with the other people in the world. So when he accepts the Jews, it will be like bringing people to life after death.
Romans 11:16 ERV If the first piece of bread is offered to God, then the whole loaf is made holy. If the roots of a tree are holy, the tree's branches are holy too.
Romans 11:17 ERV It is as if some of the branches from an olive tree have been broken off, and the branch of a wild olive tree has been joined to that first tree. If you are not a Jew, you are the same as that wild branch, and you now share the strength and life of the first tree.
Romans 11:18 ERV But don't act as if you are better than those branches that were broken off. You have no reason to be proud of yourself, because you don't give life to the root. The root gives life to you.
Romans 11:19 ERV You might say, "Branches were broken off so that I could be joined to their tree."
Romans 11:20 ERV That is true. But those branches were broken off because they did not believe. And you continue to be part of the tree only because you believe. Don't be proud, but be afraid.
Romans 11:21ERV If God did not let the natural branches of that tree stay, he will not let you stay if you stop believing.
Romans 11:22 ERV So you see that God is kind, but he can also be very strict. He punishes those who stop following him. But he is kind to you, if you continue trusting in his kindness. If you don't continue depending on him, you will be cut off from the tree.
Romans 11:23 ERV And if the Jews will believe in God again, he will accept them back. He is able to put them back where they were.
Romans 11:24 ERV It is not natural for a wild branch to become part of a good tree. But you non-Jewish people are like a branch cut from a wild olive tree. And you were joined to a good olive tree. But those Jews are like a branch that grew from the good tree. So surely they can be joined to their own tree again.
