If we can't gain salvation from religious or ritualistic acts, how can we gain salvation?
Jeremiah 50:1-9, 20 shows that all of the idols of this world will be broken down. Babylon is going to be taken out and the children of Yisrael together will go weeping before The Most High. The things that were used to keep us in idolatry aren't working anymore such as money, entertainment, vanity, alcohol, drugs, whoredom, religion, etc.
2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.
6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
9 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.
20 In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
We haven't done what this script says because we still think we're in a covenant with YAH although we're broken every covenant with The Most High. We're not ready to let the idol of America go. We have to trust YAH because He's going to give us the abundance of what we need, but Yisrael isn't ready for that. Open up your eyes to the way that YAH sees the world. The Most High is our rest, not this grid. Our adversaries don't care what they do to us because they recognized that we hate our God. When we return to YAH, the result is that YAH will pardon whom He reserves. Has this happened yet?
The Most High is ready for us to leave these things alone and come back to Him. Stop acting like this world can save you and recognize that your salvation is in YAH.
Leviticus 26:40-43 shows that the "they" is talking about all of the children of Yisrael. We turned against our Father to go be friends with our enemies. YAH gave us to our enemies because we love them more than we love Him. Being friends with our enemies will not lessen our punishment. The covenant that was made at Mt. Sinai contained the 613 laws, statutes, commandments, and judgments, but we broke that covenant.
41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.
We are waiting on the new covenant spoken of in Jeremiah 31:31-34. 31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
We've been told that living according to the covenant that we broke would give us salvation, but that was wrong. We despise YAH's judgments and statutes which is why the laws written in the prior covenant are null and void written in Lamentations 2:1-9.
2 The Lord hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied: he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the ground: he hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof.
4He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire.
5 The Lord was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.
6 And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest.
7 The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast.
8 The LORD hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Zion: he hath stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: therefore he made the rampart and the wall to lament; they languished together.
If everything was cool, why hasn't YAH given us any rest? Why're we still in the land of our enemies? Deuteronomy 30:1-8 shows that once we realize our current circumstance in all the nations we've been scattered and repent to Him, YAH is going to circumcise our hearts. Does baptism circumcise your heart?
1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,
1 Kings 8:47-54 explains how simple YAH's instructions are. His instructions will lead us to salvation. We've overcomplicated the path to salvation because we've chosen to go after idols and ourselves.
47 Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;
48 And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:
50 And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:
53 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.
54 And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.
The Most High is also showing in 2 Chronicles 6:37-42 what needs to be done to gain salvation. 37 Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;
38 If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:
All of these religious activities have not gotten us out of captivity. It has put us into a deeper sleep. If we truly want to get out of captivity, we have some decisions we have to make. It's going to take sacrifice. We have to turn to YAH with all of our hearts and souls, and acknowledge our sins that we and our fathers have committed, and apologize to The Most High as one.
If you're ready to take this step, join The United Nation of Yisrael for the Global Day of Repentance in Washington DC on September 2, 2023. It's sad that we have to plan and organize a simple apology to our Father, but it's time that we show our Father that we trust Him and not our enemies.
