A New Creature

The new covenant that God made with man through Christ Jesus and the shedding of His blood, is a covenant. It is an agreement and we must hold up our end of the agreement, and we must be obedient and transformed out of our old sinful life and be made a new creature in Christ - conformed to the image of Christ Jesus through the washing of the word and the sanctification by the Holy Spirit.


As Christians, we are representatives of God, and when we act poorly, we do injustice to His good name, and may give others a false impression of God's Holy and loving character.

Matthew 22:37-40 KJV - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

If we love our Heavenly Father, we will keep the first 5 commandments, and if we love our neighbors, we will keep the second half of the 10 Commandments.


10 Commandments - Love

Romans 13:8-10 KJV - Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. [9] For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [10] Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.



I'm afraid many people who go to church these days are just going through the motions and don't really know God, and are still living in sin.  They have not truly repented nor have been born again by the Holy Spirit. Read John chapter 14.

Obedience is Key

Once Saved Always Saved?

Apostasia - 2 Thess 2

Scripture makes it clear that we are to be free from sin, to be purified and sanctified through His Spirit and proven through trials, tribulations and temptations. We become disciples of Christ by keeping His commandments, and staying true to Him and His doctrine. Although some people fall away and turn back to the old man of sin (Romans 6). Yet God may have mercy if they turn back to Him with all their heart and turn away from sin:

Luke 15:17-24 KJV — And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

Psalm 51:1-12 KJV - Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. [2] Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. [3] For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. [4] Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. [5] Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. [6] Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. [7] Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. [8] Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. [9] Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. [11] Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. [12] Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Beware of certain Messianic Synagogues (Jews for Jesus) and Hebrew Roots movements who claim that we must be obedient to all the laws of Moses and the ceremonial laws of Leviticus. Jesus fulfilled the law of sin and death that Moses gave to Israel:

Matthew 5:18 KJV - For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Romans 10:4 KJV - For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Christ Jesus is the only one who was able to fulfill the Law perfectly, and he has freed us from the bondage of the law and this is reiterated in the book of Acts as it was declared unto the Gentiles:

Acts 15:28-29 KJV — For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; [29] That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.

No man is able be justified by the law, except Christ Jesus (Yeshua/Yahushua) Himself:

Galatians 2:16 KJV - Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Galatians 5:1-6 KJV - Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. [2] Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. [3] For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. [4] Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. [5] For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. [6] For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

The blood of Jesus paid for and initiated the new covenant that God made between man and God:

Hebrews 8:7-13 KJV - For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. [8] For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: [9] Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. [10] For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: [11] And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. [12] For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. [13] In that he saith, A new covenant , he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Apostle Paul echoes this law of the Spirit in his letter to the Romans and the Galatians.

Romans 8:1-5 KJV — There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. [3] For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: [4] That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [5] For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Galatians 5:13-17,17-21 KJV - For brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. [14] For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [15] But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. [16] This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. [17] For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. [17] For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. [18] But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. [19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these ; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, [20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, [21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Yet, Apostle Paul makes it clear, our old life of sin is dead and gone away, and we are a new creature in Christ:

Romans 6:1-4 KJV — What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

This verse shows that we could lose that which we have attained:

2 John 1:8-9 HNV — Watch yourselves, that we don't lose the things which we have accomplished, but that we receive a full reward.

Whoever transgresses and doesn't remain in the teaching of Messiah (Jesus), doesn't have God. He who remains in the teaching, the same has both the Father and the Son.

1 John 1:5-7 KJV — This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 John 5:17-19 KJV — All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

Again, we are grafted into salvation by our faith and the new covenant by the blood of Christ, yet we are to fear God and live rightly by him lest we be cut off:

Romans 11:19-22 KJV — Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

In the parable of the talents, the slothful and wicked servant was given the seed of the Spirit if he was given a talent, yet his talent was taken away because he was slothful and wicked.

Matthew 25:30 KJV — And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

A covenant is contingent upon both parties acting as agreed. Jesus clearly says IF you abide in Him and His words, then we bear fruit, meaning we keep His commandments as well as the early epistles, otherwise we will be thrown into the fire:

John 15:6-7 KJV — If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:10 KJV — If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

Even Apostle Paul was in fear of being a cast away, knowing he will be judged more severely knowing he is an example and chief aposlte of the gentiles:

1 Corinthians 9:27 KJV — But I (Paul) keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Apostle John encaptures the new life in Christ, and describes those who are truly the LORD's:

1 John 3:6-9 KJV — Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Apostle Peter, called us to be Holy like Jesus:

1 Peter 1:16-25 KJV - Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. [17] And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: [18] Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: [20] Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, [21] Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. [22] Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: [23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. [24] For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: [25] But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Apostle Paul, as spoken to the Jews, gave a careful advise to not allow ourselves to fall away from faith and back into sin:

Hebrews 2:1-3 KJV — Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. [2] For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; [3] How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him ;

In Revelations, Jesus reveals that there is a church in the last days who will have to endure great tribulation:

Revelation 2:20-23 KJV — Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Matthew 24:21 KJV — For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

To the church of Laodicea, which I believe is America at latge, Jesus made it clear that their worldliness and lukewarmness was not good:

Revelation 3:15-21 KJV — I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

We are justified by faith in Christ, yet faith without works is dead:

James 2:17-20 KJV — Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Ephesians 2:10 KJV — For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Also, the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 KJV — Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

1 Peter 4:18 KJV — And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

1 John 2:3-6 KJV — And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Revelation 3:3-5 KJV — Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Hebrews 9:15 KJV — And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Hebrews 10:26-29 KJVS - For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, [27] But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. [28] He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: [29] Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

I REMAIN – THE LION FROM THE TRIBE OF JUDAH

My daughter, write these words down.
My people, to all of you who call yourselves by My Name, I am observing your walk before My eyes. What are you doing? You are to be walking uprightly before Me yet you are submerging yourselves back into the ways of the world. You cannot follow the ways of the world if you desire to enter into My Kingdom. My kingdom is not of this world and I have called you out of the world yet you are following the world. You are NOT to engage with the darkness therein. You were to remove all that is not of Me, you were to remove anything of Babylon for it is not to be seen amongst you, you were to resist temptation, remove sin from your lives, die to self coming before Me seeking after righteousness.
Instead you are falling away and I am also referring to My elect; those that have been with Me for many years. You cannot call yourselves by My Name if you desire not the things of heaven. Is this walk too hard for you? Did I have it easy while I was with you? Did I not tell you in My Word that you would suffer with Me in order that you may be glorified when you came home to Me?
I am not pleased with what I see you are getting yourselves involved with. It is true I will never leave you but it is you leaving Me. Many of you are willingly walking away. You should hate sin as I hate sin yet you are returning to your sins. My people, you have left your posts, you are letting your guard down, you are opening your hearts up to the wrong ways and giving satan a foothold over you. If you willingly walk away, you can fall away and you will die in your sins. Have you forgotten your First Love? Have you forgotten the path you need to stay on to righteousness? Many are in danger and in a backslidden state and very close to falling away completely.
How will you fight off what is coming when you refuse to stay steadfast in the Word? You cannot get through this on your own. You underestimate the war on the mind. *asatan works through the minds of men and you MUST do warfare and resist. If you give in to these thoughts then *asatan has you in his grip. You are letting him in and once sin is conceived death ensues.
You MUST put to death these things, yield your hearts to Me and submit to My Will. Following your will only brings forth trouble. Your souls hang in the balance. I AM has provided everything you need in My Word to silence the enemy, to overcome this battle in the spiritual for this war is a spiritual one. You war not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.

Where is the fight in you? Where is your armor I told you to put on daily? Where is the repentance each day? All these you MUST do so that My Spirit can help you in all your infirmities. Do not be fooled. Do not deceive yourselves believing you will enter in if steeped in sin. No unrepentant sin will enter in.

My people, you are not far now from the finish line so get back on track, seek My face for guidance, repent of this wickedness you allowed back in and I will forgive you. You cannot remain in habitual sin. You must remove adultery, fornication, lust, debauchery, idolatry and anything you are in bondage to. Just because you accepted Me at one time as Lord & Savior it does not mean you are right before My eyes. If you are truly with Me where is the conviction then?

Do you not see that so many believe they are saved yet this is not so. Without conviction, a desire to turn from sin, to walk the narrow road and heartfelt sorrow when you stray, then child, you are still lost! Whomever told you that you are saved in this condition will be held accountable on that day before Me but you have a responsibility too. You HAVE NOT done your part. You believe the doctrines of men (demons) but have not done your homework. How often do you seek Me, the King of Kings? How often do you even open your Bible? How often do you say to yourselves-“without change, I am not the new man”? Do you see what I am showing you?

The only change I am seeing from My heavenly throne is that there is no change, no desire to repent, no desire to remove yourselves from Babylon. LISTEN TO ME! I am your Master! I am the Righteous One! I am the way, the truth and the life and if you continue this way you will be thrown into darkness for all eternity with the Master of lies. Following darkness here will bring you to darkness below.
Your lights are dim soon to go out if you do not do as I command. You see, My people, I came, lived, died and rose again to make a way for you yet you are abusing grace, you are defiling My temple (Your bodies) with filth. I didn’t die for you so you could go through life living as you desire to. I gave My All for all of you and you are to give your all to Me. Your life is not your own; you were bought with a price!

You are to be children of the light and very few are walking in obedience out of love for Me. Their light shines but for the rest of you your light is dimly lit ready to be extinguished at any moment if you refuse to stop doing what you are doing.

I have had enough of your excuses. I AM THE LION FROM THE TRIBE OF JUDAH and when I return I bring My reward with Me—some to everlasting life; some to everlasting torment. It is then too late for you.

Just because your name was written in the Book of Life at one time does not mean it will never be removed. Again I say, it is you that is willingly walking away. You can fall away forever and your name is then written out of the Book of Life. Don’t let yourselves fall away. To the backslidden I say “turn around now”. To the “unchanged ones” I say: “you are lost and need to be found”. REPENT, REPENT, REPENT.
To all I say you have tried My patience for far too long. Whom do you think you are that you can test Me? It was I who was there in the wilderness taking my people through. They tested Me and only two made it in the end. Do you hear Me? Do you understand it is I that tries man and tests man. To you who keep “testing Me” to see how much you can get away with, you will lose! You will be the ones that fail My test. STOP I SAY!!

Warnings will come to a close sooner than you all know. Changes of such magnitude you cannot even fathom are coming to this nation and to the world. Destruction is imminent! Come while you have a small window of time.
I remain!! The Lion of the Tribe Of Judah is Ready to Roar! Who will be able to stand before Me? Fear of Elohim is the beginning of wisdom for I hold the keys to hell and death.

I REMAIN,

Yahushua HaMasiach, Ruler of All Nations—I shall Reign!

Are you truly ready for My Return?
(Given to Ms. Sophie on 11/18/2017)
