The Holy Scriptures:
The Bible (the propositional revelation of the 66 books of the Protestant Canon) is the living Word of God; it is infallible and inerrant and has supreme authority in our thoughts (Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Proverbs 3:1-6; Psalms 119:89, 105; Isaiah 48:12-16; Romans 8:14-17; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17). It is to be used to test all spirits who come to us and all who claim to be prophets and/or Apostles. The Bible is profitable for not only developing sound doctrine, but the Bible is relevant and applicable to our life, today. The only right way to divide the Word of God is by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
There is one God who is revealed to us in the Bible distinctly as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit who are co. eternal and always active both in creation and in heaven (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).
God is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, and all good. By His Word, the universe was created (Hebrews 11:3). He is the Lord of hosts (Isaiah 47:4) and He is our redeemer who is mighty to save, mighty to heal, and mighty to deliver (Zechariah 3:17). His joy is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).
God the Father acts as a father figure to all people, including Yeshua while he was on earth robed in flesh (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). He is a good father who desires us to seek His Kingdom first so that he can bless us with everything we need (Matthew 6:33).
God the Son is Yeshua the Messiah, and he was sent by God the Father to conquer our sins and the grave. Yeshua humbled himself and was robed in flesh, born of a virgin, and came to be the sin offering to make the washing away of sins available to the world by grace through faith (Philippians 2:5-8, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8).
The Holy Spirit is the comforter and guide who was sent to us by God the Father in Yeshua’s name after Yeshua’s ascension to heaven (John 14:26). Through the Holy Spirit, we now have better access to God than humanity ever has had before, for the Holy Spirit dwells within us as God used to dwell in tabernacles; our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). The Holy Spirit ministers to our spirit, and when our minds are renewed, our spirit ministers to our soul.
Man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27), but fell through willful disobedience and became separated from God (Genesis 2:17;3:22-24). Now, all men are born with a sinful nature (Psalms 14:1-3;49:7;53:13; Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:9-12 & 23; 5:12). Man, however, can be redeemed through the sin offering that was given by Yeshua HaMasiach/Jesus Christ (Leviticus 17:11; Isaiah 53; Daniel 9:24-26; 1 Corinthians 3:35). By reliance on Yeshua’s sin offering (his death and atonement) and believing in his burial and resurrection from the dead, man can be saved (Acts 16:31).
Man is composed of spirit, soul, and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). His spirit is is the part of him that makes contact with the spiritual realm, his soul makes contact with the mental realm, and his body makes contact with the physical realm.
When Adam fell, his spirit died (Romans 5:12), but those who believe in the Gospel of Yeshua will have their spirit die and again as Yeshua rose from the dead (Colossians 3:1). In order to be saved, man must be born again (John 3:3-6).
When man is born again, he must make a conscious choice to renew his mind (Romans 12:2). He should not identify with who he was when he was enslaved to sin; rather, he should identify with the Kingdom of God (Ephesians 4:22). The things of old are no longer relevant to him, and he should earnestly seek God’s kingdom first. When the mind of man is renewed to agree with his new spirit, which is ministered to by the Holy Spirit, he can be singled minded and focused on the kingdom and his prayers will be effective (James 5:16).
Through the renewed mind that is set on the kingdom, man can walk in divine health (3 John 2:2). Our spiritual health affects our body’s health, and if we are spiritually healthy, our body will also be healthy (Proverbs 3:5-8). When our mind is renewed, our body is used for the glory of the kingdom of God rather than personal gain (Romans 12:1). No person who is born again has to depart from this world until he is ready to depart.
God’s Law is the standard of righteousness. The Law has no power unto salvation (Romans 8:3). Though the Law has no saving power, it is still good (Romans 7:12), and this is why Yeshua came to fulfill the law rather than abolish it (Matthew 5:17). The law will be fully fulfilled until the coming of the eschaton by the eradication of the old things (Revelation 21:3-6). We are to meditate on God’s Word and Law day and night, whether it be with joy or with anger (Joshua 1:8-9). The penalty of the Law is bondage, but the commandments themselves are not (Romans 7:6)–we are released from the penalty of the law when we are born again and we are to follow the Law by living in the Spirit.
The End Times:
There are two comings of Messiah. The first coming was for Yeshua to fulfill the penalty of the law by fulfilling the righteousness of the Law (Romans 8:3-4). The second coming of the Messiah will be to completely fulfill the law by eradicating sin, pain, and suffering completely (Revelation 21:4).
A new Jerusalem will descend from heaven prepared as a bride for God (Revelation 21:2). God will dwell with His people, forever, and pain and suffering will be alleviated, forever.
