EVIDENCE OF SALVATION

The Bible from cover to cover is a testimony to Yahuah’s Holy Instructions. “Torah” in Hebrew means INSTRUCTIONS IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Keeping The Law is how we will be declared righteous before Yahuah as The Torah is that instruction. It is in keeping The Law that the process of sanctification is accomplished as we are set apart for Yahuah as a prized possession through our obedience.

Sin is breaking The Law and Grace is forgiveness in light of our inability to keep The Law fully. The love of Yahuah is made complete in those who obey The Law.

Those who are zealous for good works of The Law are purified by The Law:

Romans 2:13

For it is not those who hear The Law who are righteous in Yahuah’s sight, but it is those who obey The Law who will be declared righteous.

Titus 2:14 – English Standard Version

who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness (abolishing The Law 1 John 3:4) and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works (of The Law James 2:14-26).

Romans 6:19 – International Standard Version

I am speaking in simple terms because of the frailty of your human nature. Just as you once offered the parts of your body as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater disobedience (to The Law; the carnal mind is hostile to The Law Romans 8:7), so now, in the same way, you must offer the parts of your body as slaves to righteousness (which is keeping The Law Romans 2:13) that leads to sanctification.

1 John 3:4 – King James 2000 Bible

Whosoever commits sin transgresses also The Law: for sin is the transgression of The Law.

1 John 2

3 We know that we have come to know Yahuah if we keep His commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know Yahuah,” but does not do what Yahuah commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys Yahuah’s word (Matthew 5:17-20), love for Yahuah is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in The Yahushaic Covenant: 6 Whoever claims to live in covenant with Yahusha must live as Yahusha did (keeping The Law of Yahuah in loving obedience)

Yahusha did not come to abolish The Law of Yahuah but to transpose it to its fullest meaning and spiritual intent. We know Yahusha’s view of those who violate the commandments of Yahuah:

Matthew 7:23 – New Living Translation

But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

Matthew 13:41- English Standard Version

The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers,

Matthew 23:28 – Weymouth New Testament

The same is true of you: outwardly you seem to the human eye to be good and honest men, but, within, you are full of insincerity and disregard of God’s Law.

Now let us review 1 John where the evidence of our salvation is laid out in detail. I’ve already covered 1 John 1 in detail.

Moving on to 1 John 2 below we see John enforce the reality of keeping His Law as the evidence you know Yahuah, and that if you say you know Yahuah and don’t keep His Law you are a liar!

1 John 2

1 My little children (speaking to the spiritually immature), these things I write to you, so that you may not break The Law of Yahuah. And if anyone breaks Yahuah’s Law, we have an Advocate with the Father, Yahusha the Messiah the righteous (one in keeping The Law of Yahuah that is Yahusha’s example on Earth). 2 And Yahusha is the propitiation for our sins and not for ours only but also for the whole world (Yahusha is The Passover Lamb).

3 Now by this we know that we know Yahuah, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Yahuah,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps Yahuah’s commandments, truly the love of Yahuah is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in covenant with Yahusha. 6 He who says he abides in covenant with Yahusha ought himself also to walk just as Yahusha walked (in obedience to The Law of Yahuah).

7 Brethren (in the family of Yahuah), I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning (the Commandments of Yahuah). 8 Again, a new commandment I write to you (here is the only new command in The Yahushaic Covenant), which Spirit of loving obedience is true in Yahusha and in you,

Ezekiel 36: 26, 27

I will give you a new heart (for my Law and write my Law on it) and put a new spirit (of loving obedience) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of The Law out of fear of death) and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

Continuing on with 1 John 2…

because the darkness (of The Law with active decrees that demand our death) is passing away, and the true light (Grace i.e. the decrees in The Law are covered by the blood of the lamb) is already shining. (Yahusha defeated The Law of Sin and Death and we now live in freedom through The Law of the Spirit of Life)

24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning (The Torah there was no New Testament until 300 years later). If what you heard from the beginning abides in you (you keep The Law of Yahuah), you also will abide in (the example set by) the Son and in the Father.

25 And this is the promise that Yahuah has promised us (for obedience in The Torah)— eternal life.

Deuteronomy 6

2 that you may fear Yahuah your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged (eternal life)

26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you (that The Law has been abolished). 27 But the anointing (the spirit of loving obedience to The Law) which you have received from Yahuah abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you (see Jeremiah 31 below); but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and (as we do) just as The Spirit has taught you (to do), you will abide in Him.

Jeremiah 31

33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahuah: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know Yahuah,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahuah. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Continuing on with 1 John 2…

28 And now, little children, abide in the example of obedience to The Law of Yahuah set by Yahusha, that when he appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed (of your habitual transgression) before Yahusha at his coming. 29 If you know that Yahuah is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness (which is keeping The Law Romans 8:4, Romans 2:13) is begotten of Yahuah.

Matthew 13:41 – English Standard Version

The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers,

I am going to stop here. The entire New Testament is testimony to keeping The Law of Yahuah. This was just one small example. The evidence of salvation is simply that you keep The Law of Yahuah and keep Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice thereby expressing faith in The Passover Lamb of God. That is The Yahushaic Covenant:

Revelation 12

17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of Yahuah, and have the testimony of the Messiah Yahusha (believe that Yahusha is the Passover Lamb).

Malachi 3:16

Then those who feared Yahuah spoke with one another. Yahuah paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared Yahuah (Deuteronomy 6:2 ‘2 that you may fear Yahuah your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you’) and esteemed his name.
.
.
“I asked Jesus into my heart and declared the name of the lawless one” is no evidence of salvation. That is a death sentence. The evidence of our salvation is that we keep The Law.
