As ambassadors for Yahshua, we must be able to present the true Gospel of Christ, the Messiah, directly and correctly. It is through the Spirit of truth that Yahshua gives unto his chosen ones, that we are able to step out of darkness into His marvelous light – unto everlasting life (1 Peter 2:25; John 8:12; John 4:23).
2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The children of Yahshua are called and chosen to preach the Good News of the Gospel. They can indeed, rightly and correctly, understand and elaborate on Scripture so that its true intent becomes clearer, and not more confusing.
God who was without sin, was manifest for us to take away our sins. And thus our righteousness is found through our faith in Yahshua who is the very image of Yahweh (2 Cor 5:21, Col 1:14, Rom 4:11, Phl 3:9).
Ambassadors for Yahshua can discern the difference between Gospel truths and man-made doctrinal errors. To suggest that our God became sin is one of those misinterpretations.
2 Cor 5:21 For (he hath) made (him to be) sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
There are five words added to this verse in 2 Cor 5:21, that make for a terrible translation.
The words, he hath made, represent yet another trinitarian mistranslation. The words he hath need to be removed, and the word made, should be translated here as to provide for.
Also, the three words him to be, are inserted incorrectly and with purposeful deceit.
And finally, the message in 2 Cor 5:21-22, is obstructed when separated into individual sentences.
Now then as ambassadors for Yahshua as unto God, and the desire therefore of us is that we pray as representatives of the Messiah on your behalf. Be ye reconciled to God therefore that provided for our sins, who Himself knew not sin, that we would be made the righteousness of God through Him ( 2 Cor 5:20-21, Rom 8:10, 9:30-31).
2 Tim 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
We are bought with a price, and Yahshua’s incredible love was demonstrated when He gave his body for us as a sacrifice for our sins. Therefore we are to glorify God in our body and spirit, which are His. As His ambassadors we must preach His new covenant wherein there is the remission or forgiveness of sins.
Under the first covenant, there was a continual offering but only a temporary covering for sins (Heb 10:16-18, 1 Cor 6:20, Gal 3:21, Isa 25:9, Mat 10:22).
We are reconciled to God through a restored relationship, because of what Yahshua provided for us, on the cross (2 Cor 5:14-21).
1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
He knew no sin, yet because of our sin, He was brought forth to provide forgiveness for those sins (John 3:16-17, Rom 5:10, 1 John 5:11, 20).
Ambassadors for Yahshua are Spirit Filled
To uncover the spiritually discerned truths contained in the Word of God is to allow Yahshua’s Spirit to dwell within us. The path that leads us unto eternal life is illuminated by means of the Spirit of God (John 14:6-9, 1 Cor 2:11-16).
Now if any man does not have the Spirit of Messiah, he is none of His (Romans 8:9-11, John 6:63).
Yahshua the Messiah is the only true Shepherd and He is also the light of the world. Those that follow Him in Spirit and in truth, shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (1 Peter 2:25; John 8:12; John 4:23).
The only ones, who can ever obtain the knowledge of the truth, are those who have a personal spiritual relationship with the Creator of all Truth.
2 Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
It is quite impossible to truly understand and obey the gospel message without the Holy Spirit residing within us. All of the true ambassadors of Yahshua must be Born Again (John 3:3, 7, 1 Peter 1:23).
It is Yahshua’s Spirit of Truth that enables His children to hear, understand, and then trust in the Gospel unto Salvation (John 14:17, 16:13).
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God as they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (Rom 12:2; 1 Cor 2:14; Eph 5:6-7).
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Becoming transformed involves the renewing of our minds through Yahshua’s Holy Spirit – this enables us to be set apart unto Him (Psalm 4:3).
Yahshua is not as concerned with the outward actions that we show off to others, but an inward change that naturally produces good works.
We must not trust in our own works, treasures or intellect (Eze 6:6, Mat 7:22, 23:5, John 7:7, Rom 9:32, Gal 2:16, 3:2).
Eph 2:8-9 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 path unto Christian Salvation is fully realized at the appearing of our Savior who rewards the Elect with eternal life (Heb 9:28, Mat 24:29-31, Mark 13:24-27, Rom 2:7, 1 Cor 15:53-54).
1 Pet 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.
