Find The Answer With Yisrayl…

 

Acts 3:19

19 Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out; that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of Yahweh.

 

Convert from practicing sin to practicing Righteousness.

 

Sin? What is sin?

 

I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8, 10

4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.

7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.

8 He who practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.

10 In this the Children of Yahweh and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice Righteousness is not of Yahweh, and he does not love his neighbor!

 

I hope you noticed verse 8.

·         These religions that are practicing breaking one or more of Yahweh’s Laws of Righteousness belong to Satan, that old serpent.

 

Revelation 12:9

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. She was cast out into the earth, and her angels were cast out with her.

 

·         They pretend to practice Righteousness while they break one or more of Yahweh’s Laws.

·         They are deceivers leading their subjects to death, not Life.

 

So what do the Scriptures say will occur to you if you repent of sin and convert to practicing Righteousness?

·         The Scriptures say you will receive Eternal Life.

 

Revelation 22:12-16

12 And behold, I come quickly, and My Reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work will be.

13 I am the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

14 Blessed are those who keep His Laws, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the City.

15 For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and worshipers of Gods (elohim) and everyone who professes to love, yet practices breaking the Laws.

16 I, Yahshua, have sent My Messenger to testify to you these things in the congregations of The House of Yahweh. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.

 

If you do not repent of sin and convert to practicing Righteousness, you will receive eternal death.

 

Yechetzqyah 18:20-32

20 The soul that sins, it will die. The son will not bear the iniquity of the father, nor will the father bear the iniquity of the son. The Righteousness of the Righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.

21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all My Statutes, and do that which is Lawful and right, then he will surely live; he will not die.

22 And his transgressions that he has committed will not be mentioned against him; in his Righteousness that he has done, he will live.

23 Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? says Father Yahweh: No, but rather that he would turn back from his wicked ways, and live.

24 But when the Righteous turns away from his Righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does—should he live? All his Righteousness that he has done will not be mentioned in his behalf. In his trespass that he has trespassed, and in his sin that he has sinned, in them he will die.

25 Yet you say; The Way of Yahweh is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israyl: Is not My way equal? Are not your ways unequal?

26 When a Righteous man turns away from his Righteousness, and commits iniquity and dies, it is because of the iniquity he has done, that he will die.

27 Again, when the wicked man turns away from his wickedness that he has committed, and does that which is Lawful and right, he will save himself, and live.

28 Because he considered, and turned away from all his transgressions that he has committed, he will surely live; he will not die.

29 Yet the house of Israyl says; The Way of Yahweh is not equal. O house of Israyl, are not My Ways equal? Are not your ways unequal?

30 Therefore, I will judge you, O house of Israyl, everyone according to his own ways, says Father Yahweh. Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so iniquity will not be your ruin; downfall.

31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, in which you have transgressed, and prepare yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israyl?

32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies, says Father Yahweh. Therefore, turn and live!
