Beliefs

1.  I believe in one God whose name is YHVH (Yehovah); He’s the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  He is the Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) who lives in all believers to lead, counsel, and teach them. We must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

2.  Yeshua is the image of YHVH; He’s also known as the Son of God, the promised Messiah, and the Suffering Servant (the Son of Joseph).  He will come in the future as the King of kings and Lord of Lords (the Son of David).

3.  I believe YHVH chooses those He calls into relationship with Yeshua to be the Bride of Messiah and that He extends grace (favor) to those He chooses.  It is because of grace that believers are saved and will be saved.

4.  I agree with the apostle Paul who confirmed that Torah has not been abolished because of faith (trust) in Yeshua (Romans 3:31).

5. I agree with the Scriptures which defines the Sabbath as the 7th day of the week.

6.  I believe everyone needs to repent of their sins (turn away from them) and trust in the atonement of the blood of Yeshua for their sins and trespasses.  Believers are to walk out their faith with fear and trembling as they seek to obey YHVH’s commandments.  Everyone who does so will have eternal life.

7.  I believe everyone who receives Yeshua as Lord and Savior is grafted into the olive tree of Israel.  In other words, Jewish and Gentile believers are one flock called Israel.

8.  I believe the Torah is one law for both Jews and Gentiles.

9.  The saints are those who keep the commandments of YHVH and the faith of Yeshua (Rev. 14:12).

  1. I agree with you as far as Torah goes. The NT concept of repentance and faith in Jesus goes along with the prophets’ call to repentance and faith in Jesus’ atonement is similar to the trust people had in the atonement of the Levitical offerings.

    Revelation 14:12 says the saints are the ones who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus so Torah observance is very important.

    My relationship with the Creator has been significantly deepened and changed as I have embraced Torah.

    Thank you for your comment.

    • There is no major difference. Both spellings for our Heavenly Father are based on the Hebrew consonant letters Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh (Written either YHVH or YHWH). There is no certainty on all of the vowels because at least 4 different sets of vowels are seen in Scripture. I think this keeps the name from being taken in vain. In Hebrew, Yahweh is not technically correct because there is no sheva after the first heh, but people use it anyway. That spelling is most often present in Scripture. In Hebrew, Yehovah correctly has proper Hebraic syllabification, and proper vowels are used. There are at least 44 times in Scripture it is spelled this way; the majority are in Jeremiah. There are a few other pronunciations out there (and spellings in Scripture) but these two predominate. I switch back and forth sometimes because my assembly prefers to use Yahweh. If you go to the Hebrew lesson page, take a look at the lesson on vowel pointings and you will see what I mean.
