Teshuva REPENT

Ps.5:4-5 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Repent and be about God's buisness.
All sin. 1 Jn.1:8-9 / Is.64:5-6/ Ps.14:1-3/ Rom.5:12/ (Rom.3:20,23/ Ecc.7:20 / ...)

Who does the saving? Christ does. For those who would say, "I have backslid and need to be saved all over again" /"Be carful", "Christ does his part, once he saves you its an insult to him to say you need to be saved again, its like saying he failed not you. Its an insult to the crusifixtion." - A.M.
Jn.10:27/ Jn.6:44/ Jn.15/ Rev.4:11/ Love isn't forced. Much like fishers of men look for those in which The WORD has sparked interest, The LORD is the heart knower. He takes pleasure in those in an ongoing relationship with him. There are good hearted people that bare fruits without much need of encouragement. God likes can do people rather than luke warm (Sower-Lk.11-14/ Rev.3:15-16/ Barren fig-Lk.13:6-9). He gave us The WORD that we may know him and walk in truth and light.
___Walk with God____________
* Heb.5:12-14
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
* Heb.6:1-6 *
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit.
(If it be God's will we shall increase in understanding of the Word once born of The Spirit and become fruitful)
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
(What is "impossible"? (vs.1) To mature in a relationship with God after (vs.6) "falling away" (transgressing The LORD) unless we are moved to embrace repentance, seeing as we have disrespected Elohim. Its all about an ongoing relationship. Christ did his part/ and his sheep are drawn to be fruitful. Jn.6:44/Rev.3:20/ Jn.15:1-8) (Jn.3)
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

__Example of maturity___________
Fear (Reverance) is the Beginning! (Ps.111:10 / Prov.1:7;9:10) Fear matures into LOVE:
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."- 1 Jn.4:18
(Jas.1:14-15/ Heb.2:14/ 2 Pet.2:21)
REPENT: Mk.1:15/ 2 Pet.3:9/ Proverbs 28:13/ Acts.2:21/Joel 2:12-13/ Rom.10:9-10,13/ 1 Jn.4:3/ 2 Jn.1:7/ Ps.32:5/ (Dan.9:4)/ Matt.10:32/ Lk.12:8/ Rom.14:11/ Rom.15:9/ Phil.2:11/ Jas.5:16/ 1 Jn.1:9/ 1 Jn.4:2-3,15/ Rev.3:5/ Rev.12:11/ Ps.116:4,13 (Ps.38:18/ Ps.41:4/ 1 Kings 21:27-29/ 2 Sam.12:13) 1 Jn.4:15 (Lam.3:40-42/ Is.1:10) Hosea 14:2,4 (Is.59:20) Eze.18:21-23/ John preached Matt.3:1-2, 7-12 (Acts 15:17) (Is. 54:5/ Is.62:2 / Zech.13:9/ Acts15:17) Acts 17:30/ *Is.55:7-9/ Lk.15:7
We know that faith without works is dead (Jas.2:17,20,26), and we are saved by Grace through Faith (Eph.2:8). Without the Law there would be no Grace (Grace= unmerited/ undeserving favor). Those who dont recieve God's Grace shall be found guilty according to the Law. We can't Con God. Repentance comes from the heart. Those who do have a relationship with God are in communion with him to the extint that even if they were to transgress the Law of their heart they immediately are moved to repentance. (circumcision of the heart Deut.10:16; 30:6/ Jer.4:4/ Rom.2:25-29/ Act.2:37-38/ Is.1:10/ Hosea 7:14/ Acts17:30) Logic tells us that if one doesn't embrace God's mercy that they shall not recieve it. At the great white throne of judgement all will know Messiah. However not all will embrace God's will.
Discipline is good but in our weakness we find strength in Christ (*1 Jn.2:1/ *2 Cor.12:9-10/ Rom.7:14-25/ Gal.3:24-29/ ). We shall be known by our fruits. To show me your faith I would see your works /Lk.8:15. Even the demons believe (Matt.8:28-33/ Jas.2:19/ Matt.7:21) Yet they didnt embrace Repentance (Reverance God).Just claiming the name without the relationship is to be found lacking Matt.7:21-23
2 Jn.1:8-9
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
/Wrought- G#2041 ; to toil (as a task, occupation, etc.), (by implication) effect, be engaged in or with, etc.: - commit, do, done, labor for, minister about, trade (by), work./
abideth- G#3306 A primary verb; to stay (in a given place, state, relation or expectancy): - abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry (for), X thine own.
Mk.13:13 / 2 Tim.2:3/ Jas.1:12/ Jas.5:11/ Eph.6:13/ 1 Chronicles 16:34
"Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Matt.4:17 (Matt.3:2/ Mk.1:15)
Repentance -Heb. Teshuva/ Gr. metanoia (Lk,24:44-47)
-Phil.2:10-16/ Col.2:10-11/ Lk.8:15/ Mk.6:12

2 Peter 2:20-22
For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit (Proverbs 26:11) again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
Heb.10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? (compare to Heb 6)
(2 Cor.13:5)
 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Matt.14:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mk.1:15 (Yeshua taught of repentance.)
The lukewarm (those who are good as long as they dont have to give up anything they lust for) love the feel good message. Many claim to be Christains but hate the mention of discipline, and taking up ones cross (1 Jn.2:19). Christ did his part. Do we bare fruits. Saved by Grace through faith. Faith without works is dead.
2 Cor.13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Phil.2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
1 Cor.9:27 But I keep under (discipline) my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway (disqualified/ outcast)./ Jn 17:23/1 Cor.11:28/

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

In Closing,
In Heb. 6 we are encouraged to Mature in God's Word. To move from the milk unto the meat ("unto perfection") and yet that is "impossible" for those who have been partakers of the Holy Spirit if they fall away seeing as they have need of repentance to go forward rather instead of being able to teach they have need that someone "teach them Again" the first oracles (Heb.512-14/ Heb.6:1-9/ Heb.10:38-39). Thus they keep falling back unto the milk or fall Away showing that they arent of us 1 Jn.2:19. God's sheep bare good fruits and while we may have times when we fall short our conscience immediately makes it aware that we have sinned and we turn it over to God rather than seek to JUSTIFY it. 1 Jn.3:7-10 "Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother."(1 Jn.1:8,*9,10/ Jude 1:3/ *1 Jn.2:1)
We are not to be lukewarm and Not to be Reprobates. Rom.6:1-14 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Rom.7:14-25 "For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."
Matt.16:14 "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."/ 2 Cor.13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?/ *Rom.7:1-6 / So basically we have those that hold the truth in unrighteousness (Rom.1:18-20) and we have those that are in an ongoing relationship with the Father and worship him in Spirit and in truth. The faith is more than claiming you believe. (Heb.6 is about sanctification). (1 Pet.7-16)
