A CLARIFICATION OF TERMS
The man, (or men), writing under the name 'Paul', pretends to reveal to us a great, new 'truth'! We ar told: 'by the deeds of the law shall no flesh be justified!' Romans, 3:20
The truth is; it is NOT, nor was it EVER, the purpose of YHVH'S Law to provide man with 'justification'!! The purpose of the Divine Torah legislation is the establishment of a just and moral society in THIS REAL< MATERIAL WORLD! The commandments of YHVH recorded therein are GUIDELINES toward the building of this, YHVH'S, kingdom. The commandments ('deeds') deal in RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT JUSTIFICATION! (see Deuteronomy 6:25).
What is justification? Justification means: to be upheld in a court of law; to be exonerated by a judge; to have a jury declare one innocent; to have one's claims verified and proclaimed just in a judgement!
David, YHVH'S Messiah, states: 'enter not into judgement with Your servant, for before You shall NO LIVING PERSON BE JUSTIFIED!' Psalm 143:2. This is a permanent fact of life, NOT subject to change! Men may claim that they are 'just', and cast doubt upon YHVH'S justice. They don't stand a chance, because YHVH'S justice is ABSOLUTE, OBJECTIVE JUSTICE, whereas man's 'justice' is subjective, apparent justice! Therefore, NO MAN CAN EVER be 'justified' before YHVH, the TRUE JUDGE. You cannot win an argument with YHVH.
One may be deluded into believing that a bleeding, dying, god- man saviour 'justifies' one (in the words of 'Paul'; Romans 5:9.) in the eyes of YHVH, but such belief won't help one bit! (Man-made 'theology' is just words, without real content!) Man can NEVER be justified before YHVH, but his sins can be FORGIVEN by YHVH, if HE REPENTS! 'When the wicked man turns from his wickedness and DOES what is LAWFUL and RIGHT (good works!), he SHALL SAVE HIS SOUL ALIVE!' Ezekiel 18:27, 33:14, etc. YHVH provides FORGIVENESS in return for sincere repentance. But forgiveness is NOT JUSTIFICATION.
Dear Reader, do not let the forces of satanic deception confuse you by misusing terms and falsifying the true message of YHVH'S true Scripture!
The serpent sought to lead Adam away from obedience to YHVH by telling him there was no benefit in keeping His commandments! The CHURCH of the serpent (John 3:14) is still at it, teaching men that the 'law' has no power to 'save'!
Belief in a dead human being, who supposedly died 'for you', will avail you NOT AT ALL! Only one thing can help you - OBEDIENCE! OBEDIENCE TO YHVH AND HIS COMMANDMENTS!
HAVE YOU EVER SINNED? REPENT! COME TO YHVH, TODAY! HIS FORGIVENESS IS THERE FOR THE ASKING! REPENT, AND LIVE!!
