11 STEPS TO LIVE AS A MESSIANIC NAZARENE JEW
Now that you is a disciple of Messiah, make your spiritual life grow doing what YHWH decides in your life. If want to be used by Adonai (Lord) you must:
1.READ AND STUDY TORAH : sit aside for at least 15 minutes for Torah studies and YHWH will talk to you through His word and will guide you. 1 Peter 2: 2. “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” Weekly memorize a Torah verse.
Learn about the Lord (Adonai) in a Torah class.
You can begin by studying the laws of YHWH that are applicable to you between Exodus 12 and Deuteronomy 34, and the laws of Yeshua to apply them to your life at this time.
Remember as it is in Joshua 1: 8 “This book of the law (Exodus 12 to Deuteronomy 34) shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”.
2.PRAY constantly and RECITE the SHEMA two times daily: pray is talking with the Almighty. Speak with Him especially about your life: joys, difficulties, new projects or desires. Pray all the time, in your house, with your partner, in the work, alone or in groups. At least do it twice a day, after saying the Shema and the Scripture in Deuteronomy 6: 4–9, and you will see the difference in all aspects of his life.
Don’t worry about anything; “in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto Elohim.” Philippians 4: 6
3.KEEP AWAY FROM THE WORLD AND ITS EVIL THINGS: maintain yourself away from negative people, books or videos. You were captive a while ago, but now you are victorious and free in Yeshua. ….. Read Psalm 1. “Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? “2 Cor 6:14.
4.PARTICIPATE, IN ALL THE SHABBATS, IN A MESSIANIC NAZARENE JEWS COMMUNITY OF FAITH: be part of a community that proclaims the truth of the Gospel and the Torah with authority, and who are faithful servers, and keep on learning more about the word of YHWH. Find a congregation where the Shabbat is kept, who do the Festivities of Elohim, and study the Torah above all. A place where the Gospel is seen as part integrated to the Torah. The Scripture says: “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging, and so much more as you see the Day coming near. “Hebrews 10:25
5. APPLY THE COMMANDMENTS OF DEUTERONOMY 6: 4-9: Elohim asks to love Him with all your heart, soul and mind, more that anyone else, and twice a day remind yourself of His commandment “the Shema” (Deu 6:4-9). In addition He calls you to be always with YHWH in His Shabbat. Also use the mezuzah to remember His laws whenever you enter or get out of your house, apartment or office.
6.COMPLY WITH YOUR TITHES, OFFERINGS AND ZEDAKAH TO YHWH YOUR ELOHIM: Elohim has made you prosperous. (1 Corinthians 16: 2) “Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not of grief or of necessity, for Elohim loves a joyous giver. … “2 Corinthians 9: 7.“ See why Yeshua has ordered to give tithes.
7.DO NOT GET DISCOURAGE: wait for temptations, doubts and persecution: “and all that will live godly in Yeshua the Messiah will suffer persecution.”. 2 Timothy 3: 12. Elohim is your refuge and your brothers and sisters in Christ are there to help you. If has problems let us join us in prayer for Elohim intervene in their time of need.
8.OFFER your TALENTS to YHVH: “Now having different gifts, according to the favour which was given to us, let us use them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of belief; if serving, in the serving; or he who is teaching, in the teaching; or he who encourages, in the encouragement; or he who is sharing, in sincerity; he who is leading, in diligence; he who shows compassion, joyously” Romans 12: 6-8.
9.WAIT FOR MESSIAHS TRIUMPHANT COMING: the Torah shows us that the second coming of Messiah will be visible for everyone and will be with power “they shall see the Son of Aḏam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem.” Matthew 24:30, because the same Lord, Yeshua, with voice command, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of Elohim, will descend from the sky; “and the dead in Messiah shall rise first.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16. Hope for yourself to have an extraordinary and abundant Jewish life.
10.SHARE the testimony of your faith: to grow spiritually you need to help others to discover Yeshua (Jesus) and show them the wonders of the love of Mashiach “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” Mark. 16:15 explaining to others in your own words how Yeshua became known to you and how he brought changes into your life. Use our page: “Get to know Yeshua” as your guide.
11.LOVE ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND PRAY ALWAYS FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM: Remember always that Yeshua our Messiah was a dedicated jew, and that loves his people with all his heart. (See Psalm 122: 6-7).
Blessings to all
