But without faith it is impossible to please him:
for he that cometh to Elohim must believe that He is,
and that He rewards them that diligently seek Him.
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith,
and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Master Yeshua Mashiyach,
in the sight of Elohim and our Father;
Faith is the action of fulfilling Torah, by opening our hearts to the Word of YHWH and doing His Commandments, we turn from the lower nature of man and become a Kedoshim (Holy People). In the Malchut Elohim (Kingdom of the Mighty Ones) each man is specifically called to Sanctify himself and appear before YHWH at least three times a year, and we are also called to rest in Him each Shabbat. By asking YHWH for His Spirit, we receive the anointing of Grace that empowers us to live a Holy life and delight in His Word each day. YHWH's Commandments are not burdensome, they are a delight to walk in through Faith and Mercy. We delight to be His Children, and His children don't go looking for loopholes and excuses to disobey Him. Rather we observe each Commandment that applies to us, and approximately half of the Torah applies directly to us and the other half is meant for the Priests and Temple service. The Word of YHWH is Torah (instruction in righteousness) and applies each day, Torah lives inside of Yeshua and His Talmidim (disciples). By Faith we choose to walk in His Torah, we ask YHWH to Grace us with an anointing from the Ruach HaKodesh (Set-Apart, Holy Spirit) so that we are able to joyfully Observe His Torah and be a Kedoshim (Set-Apart Holy people) .
Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
Yes, a man may say, you have faith, and I have works:
show me your faith without your works,
and I will show you my faith by my works.
You believe that there is one Elohim;
you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
But wilt you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works,
when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
Do you see how faith brought about his works,
and by works was faith made perfect?
And the scripture was fulfilled which says,
Abraham trusted Elohim, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness:
and he was called the Love of Elohim.
You see then how that by works a man is made righteous, and not by faith only.
Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot made righteous by works,
when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Therefore the Torah is Holy Just and Good
the Torah is the "Mind of Mashiyach"
The Torah of YHWH is "perfect converting the soul"
HOW then do we go?
We let Mashiyach live inside of us.
"Blessed are they that do His Commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city."

The Aramaic English New Testament (AENT) contains the original teachings of Y'shua Mashiyach and the writings of the Shlichim (Sent Ones - Apostles). Contrary to Western opinion the teachings of Y'shua and Paul were originally in Aramaic not Greek. The Aramaic New Testament has been preserved by the Church of the East who trace their roots back to the original Netzarim followers of Y'shua. Some 360 Aramaic manuscripts (known as Peshitta) have beautifully maintained Netzarim teachings in their original language with very minor differences between manuscripts. In the AENT you will find notes referring to the recently discovered Khabouris Codex (Aramaic New Testament), 1700 footnotes and 350 pages of appendixes that detail the Netzari Faith and lifestyle of the original Jewish followers of Y'shua.
The Aramaic English New Testament was translated into English by Andrew Gabriel Roth with the help of a team of Netzari and Aramaic Primacists who are collectively restoring the Aramaic and Hebrew roots of the New Testament. We invite you to obtain a copy for your personal study to learn the Way of Mashiyach Y'shua according to the original Faith that was once delivered unto the Household of Faith.
