IS A HEBREW WORD THAT MEANS
Dr. Elias E. Hidalgo
Do you feel that a complete and fulfilled life is:
* Accomplishing your goals
* Never saying the wrong thing
* Being liked by everyone
* Living a good and moral life
* A wonderful family
Yes, all of these are very important, and yet, if you have no Shalom (Peace), then all you will ever do is to no avail.
Peace with GOD is the highest form of inward satisfaction that will reflect upon the outward person.
HOW CAN I OBTAIN SHALOM ... ?
We're Glad You Asked !
" Thou wilt keep him (her) in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he (she)
trusteth in thee. Trust in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord GOD is everlasting strength".
WHY, aren't most people experiencing S H A L O M (PEACE) ?
most people are not TRUSTING IN THE LORD GOD.
" Trust in The LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all
thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths".
What keeps an individual from experiencing S h a l o m (Peace) WITH GOD ?
WHAT IS SIN ?
It is the transgression or violation of The Law of GOD.
The Law of GOD ...... consists of BETWEEN 10 to 613 do's AND don'ts.
If we are honest with ourselves .............
NO ONE can keep to perfection ONE OF GOD'S LAWS.
AND, the breaking of any of The LAWS of GOD
Places us in a state of separation (NO Shalom-Peace) from GOD...
can we WHO are in SIN be made righteous in GOD'S EYES.
There must be a BLOOD ATONEMENT
for all of our SINS ! ! !
"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood;
and without shedding of blood is no remission".
This wonderful payment for our SINS was
made by "Y E S H U A" (Jesus) OF NAZARETH.
"IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE;"
NOW, it's one thing to know all of this, but nevertheless, GOD'S WORD tells us that we must act willingly upon this TRUTH ...
BUT HOW ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
By FAITH ! By EXERCISINGF = Full
A = Assurance
I = In
T = The
H = Holy-one
By recognizing that you have sinned (broken GOD'S law), and, that The Lord Yeshua has already paid the debt.
"FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD."
"FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH YESHUA MESSIAH (CHRIST) OUR LORD".
"THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD YESHUA, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED".
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto SALVATION".
Have you ever in your LIFE
said to THE LORD ... YES,
I recognize MY SIN, and, YES, I believe with...
all MY HEART that I ...
cannot SAVE Myself,
But, I NOW recognize that YESHUA died for all MY SINS, and that He was buried and rose from the dead in order to bring me unto GOD and give me SHALOM (Peace).
GUESS WHAT ?
You Just Did !
"BUT AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME: WHICH WERE BORN NOT OF BLOOD (INHERITANCE), NOR OF THE WILL OF THE FLESH (INVOLVEMENT), NOR OF THE WILL OF MAN (INTELLECT),
BUT OF GOD".
NOW that you BELIEVE and BELONG to GOD,
"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your request be made known unto GOD. And the Shalom (Peace) of GOD, which passeth
all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through MESSIAH YESHUA".
Praise ye the Lord!
NOW your LIFE is complete and fulfilled,
and you can definitely say ...
SHALOM MEANS PEACE
