Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24)
TRUTH: Yeshua manifested in the believer by His Spirit, so He is known as a Living Person on the Throne in heaven, and the believer joined in spirit to Him there. With the result that Yeshua’s life and nature are imparted to him, forming and building up in him a “New Creation.” (Gal. 1:16, 4:19, Col. 1:17,) The believer growing up into Him in all things.
Yeshua stated the following: “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it,” (Matthew 7:14 ). The enemy uses many deceptions to draw us away from the truth; it is our responsibility to study and through diligently working out our salvation receive and discern the truth; which guides us to the narrow path; the following is a description of the fraud leading many away from that gate.
DECEPTION: “YESHUA,” apparently manifested inwardly, “as a Person,” to whom the soul prays, or with whom he holds communion, yet there is no real evidence of the expression of the Divine nature or real growth of a Christ life, with a deepening fellowship with Yeshua in heaven. On the contrary, Yeshua in heaven seems far away. The counterfeit centers and ends in an “experience,” which keeps the person introverted or self -centered (spiritually). Pgs. 107, 289, 290, 291.

When we look in a mirror, we see an image portrayed, however, it has been shown we know the image in our minds is what we desire it to appear as, in many cases. The truth is if we use a defined comparison, we most definitely would see the real picture; then it becomes a decision on our part which image we will accept and follow leading to life eternal. Our free will allows this choice within our walk to eternal life, right or wrong, it is always our choice. All our working on salvation depends upon God working in us “Do not trifle with “God,” by “neglects” and “delays,” lest you provoke him to “withdraw” his help, and all your endeavors prove to be vain.

A prayer for guidance: Heavenly Father, I present before your throne these petitions to be heard on behalf of those who are committing their walk to your footprints. I ask Father you would fill them with discernment, understanding, commitment to you faithfully, the spirit of endurance, the sense of foresight. Bring them strength, courage which removes the feeling of fear, that they might face the enemy with confidence. Most of all Father lift from them the spirits of arrogance, pride, and self-centeredness, self-regard, self-interest, and those spirits Father that represent the temptations of the flesh which would draw them from your word and the narrow path to eternal life, which I pray in your name Yeshua Amen and Amen.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient unto our Lord Yeshua as a Watchman. This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua. “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength.
