Are you on the narrow path? The Yochanan/Johannine Epistles are an exposition of those who have gone out from us on the narrow Melchizedek Path, into the esoteric wisdom of men. There is truly nothing new under the sun, as the same perversions that crept into the assemblies of The Way are present with us today.
Do you have the Word of Life? Those that claim to know and have a relationship with יהוה/Yahuwah will be tested by their attitudes towards sin. Yochanan/John addresses the claims of the secessionists by delving into what intimacy with יהוה/Yahuwah really is.
What good is knowledge without discernment? If we are unable to know the difference between what is clean and unclean, good and evil, right and wrong. True knowledge of יהוה/Yahuwah is dependent upon ongoing obedience towards Him.
Are you one of the B’nai יהוה/children of Yahuwah? The entrustment of this title comes with the mandate that we do righteousness in the midst of this fallen world. The works of your hands are a revelation of your parentage.
Have you tested the ruachim/spirits? It is written that יהוה/Yahuwah will send lying spirits to those who are part of the congregations of the wicked. Yahusha has provided us with an indivisible Covenant with an indivisible priesthood!
Are you guarding His mitzvoth/commandments? True belief is not learned, but born out of conversion. Birthed from our faith, our struggle with flesh and sin is what identifies us as Yisrael/Israel.
