What Would Yahshua Do?
These four little words make up the most profound question we should ask ourselves daily. When we encounter questions or decisions of various kinds, we should ask ourselves, “What would Yahshua do?”
Every day we must make decisions of Truth vs. error. We must decide if something is good Doctrine, or bad. In our daily walk and practices, indeed in every question we encounter, we should be asking ourselves the question, “What would Yahshua do?”
Notice what we are told in Scripture:
“He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” (1John 2:6)
If we are to become perfected in love, as the Scripture tells us, we must walk as HE walked, in every way. If we are to walk even as He walked, we must ask ourselves this question, in every matter, “What would Yahshua do?”
If we are to walk as He walked, then we should desire to practice the same things HE did, speak the same words, and literally BE the same, in all areas of our life. Why is this true? The following passages reveal the answer:
“…To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory…” (Colossians 1:27)
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Romans 8:11)
“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?” (2Corinthians 13:5)
“My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you…” (Galatians 4:19)
“Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:11)
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…” (Philippians 2:5)
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1John 4:4)
The above passages reveal that Messiah actually is living within every Born-Again Believer, and He desires to express the fullness of His Life in us, as a Testimony. Even the apostle Paul spoke in a similar way, exhorting us to imitate him and the other disciples, in our manner of life:
“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.” (Philippians 3:17)
“For I delight in the law of God after the inward man…” (Romans 7:22)
Paul’s whole focus in his ministry was to reveal the many facets of “Messiah-in-you,” with its goal of perfecting of love. There is, however, a disease that will spoil the fruit that Messiah-in-you desires to produce. That is the disease of being “carnal.” Notice what Paul said about avoiding this carnality disease:
“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” (Romans 8:7)
Paul reveals that the only way we can allow the fullness of Messiah-in-us to live His life, and to produce fruit in our lives, is for us to allow Him to write the law (Torah) on our heart, and then for us to walk in it, just as He did.
Most think Yahshua was a nice Gentile boy, who went to Sunday-School faithfully every week, and that He practiced pagan Feasts and Festivals, and that He avoided keeping Sabbath and Passover, and the other Feasts of Yahweh.
Then why do we, while claiming Yahshua lives-in-us, do these things?
If we are to mature in love, we must stop preventing Messiah-in-us from walking in us, the same way He walked 2,000 years ago, while He was in His own body. We must change OUR thinking to HIS thinking. We must avoid being carnal. We must become like Paul and the other disciples, and yes, even like Messiah Himself.
For those who hope to overcome, and to know Him, we must ask the question, concerning all things — “What Would Yahshua Do?”
- If You Love Me, Keep ‘My’ Commandments – Do we show our love for Messiah, in the way He has told us — or have we lost sight of His identity?
- What Are the Ten Commandments? – Also called The Ten Words, these Scripture passages are shown in both Hebrew and English, enabling us to see for ourselves what these Commandments actually say. When we as New Covenant Believers understand whose words they are, we can better know how to respond to them.
- Obeying Torah is Not About Salvation – Obedience to the Torah [Father’s House Rules for His family] is not about our redemption by Yahushua’s blood. Instead, it is Messiah’s New Testament instruction to all Born-again Believers in how to abide in Him, how to love Him, and how to walk as He walked.
- Seven Biblical Guidelines for Studying the Bible: Using Scripture to Interpret the Scriptures – What is the source of our current understanding of the Bible? The pure Truths of Scripture are of highest importance — how we understand the Scriptures will affect our eternal condition! To avoid being deceived by man-made doctrines, we must not rely on Preachers, Teachers, Bible notes or commentaries.
