I thank God for the grace to accept the one true “good message” or “good news” of God without reservations and controversy. It is not evidence that demands a verdict, but grace that allows us to accept His “good news”. The “good news” is the Mashiach, Yeshua of Nazareth, died for our sins according to the Old Testament (Tanach), He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the Old Testament. (Luke 24, 1 Cor 15). The testimony of two confirms the fact of God’s one true good news.
The good news is called the good news of grace. And the good news is the power of God unto salvation. Thus it is this good news that causes believers to endure to the end. For the good news is the power of God. This is what Paul declares “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Yeshua the Mashiach, and Him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:2) Paul states that he did not want believers to know anything but Yeshua the Mashiach and Him crucified in their thoughts. The only way this can happen is declaring God’s good news continually. The good news can only be declared continually by the grace of God. God’s good news is that the Mashiach Yeshua died for our sins, and if He died He has been buried and He rose again the third day and according to the Old Testament. And as Yeshua the Mashiach died for all, then all were dead. And in the Adam all died, in the Mashiach all are made alive, each person in God’s own order.
Now the grace of God works to save the individual believer, as Paul writes in Romans 14, “Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? To his own master he standeth or falleth. Yes, he shall be holden up; for God is able to make him stand.” But the grace of God at the same time works also with believers who walk together, for Jude talks about those who separate themselves, “Beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostolos of our Lord Yeshua the Mashiach, because they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.” There is a work of grace that works between God and the believer, and there is a work of grace that works between God and the assembly. The believer stands before God as an individual and as part of the assembly. If the believer separates himself from the assembly, he has resisted the grace of God. This is called dissembling and this is a work of the flesh. This is what Peter did when he dissembled himself and believers of Yudah from the believers of the nations in Galatians chapter 3. Thus, the believer as an individual cannot be separated from God or the assembly and have the operation of grace continue to save him or her to the end. When the believer dissembles there is only God’s mercy left. They are unable to restore themselves. For it was God’s mercy that brought Paul to Peter to rebuke him and Peter found grace (or better yet grace found Peter) outside himself to repent. For Paul was walking in grace and the one true good news and was able to minister grace to Peter. Be not highminded to think any believer can stand apart from the grace of God and the one true good news and continue to walk in the Spirit and life and truth and God. For where the good news is preached continually there is the grace of God. For the good news can only be preached continually by the grace and will of God. Again I say apart from the assembly where the good news is preached the believer cannot continue in grace. This is also what James speaks of, “Even so the faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” And without the work of assembling the believer is dead and he or she is alone.
To endure to the end with grace and God and God and the assembly to the believer even all of this is not enough to save believers in a generation of judgment. For I agree with words of Yeshua judged by the “good news”, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved, but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Mat 24) So in a generation for the believer to be saved there is God and His grace and God and His assembly and God shortening the day to save believers.
I mark this writing by the one true good news of God. The Mashiach, Yeshua of Nazareth, died for our sins according to the Old Testament, He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the Old Testament. (Luke 24, 1 Cor 15:1-6)
