"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:Not of works, lest any man should boast."
The battle for the salvation of our souls is unrelenting. Satan knows his time is short and fire and torment await him. Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah came to save those who believe in God's plan of salvation and there is no other. You are not saved by good works, taking sacrements, going door to door or by attendance in your house of worship. You are saved by the unmerited grace of God given to us by trusting in the atoning work on the cross by His majesty, Yeshua the Messiah. It is a gift and you can't buy it or earn it. Now the Torah states that without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sins. Only blood shed will redeem us before a Holy God and Yeshua's blood is our only hope to salvation. Many are taught wrong that there is some other road. Essentially there are 2 basic thoughts about how one 'gets saved'. One, you have to do something to earn it, whether through rituals, finances or tradition, one must 'do something' to merit the favor of our creator. The second way, and according to the Bible the only way, is through the atoning blood of the Messiah, Yeshua the Son of God. We must be strong on this point because the author of confusion will try to deceive those who are in the valley of decision. May the Lord open our eyes to His power and truth. There is no other way of salvation except through Yeshua.
