Baptized Into This World, Or, Not Of This World!


   
Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for Elohim has received him. Who are you to judge others servants? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for Elohim is able to make him stand.
One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives Elohim thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives Elohim thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to The Lord; and if we die, we die to The Lord.
Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end, Messiah died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the Judgment seat of Messiah. For it is written: 'Every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall take an oath!' So then, each of us shall give account of himself to Elohim. Therefore, let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother's way. (Rom 14:1-10) {cf. Isa 45:22-24}
In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah Yeshua; buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of Elohim, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the Cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
So, let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbath's, which are shadows of things to come, but the substance is of Messiah Yeshua. Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from Elohim.
Therefore, if you died with Messiah from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances or regulations; 'do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,' which all concern things which perish with the using, after the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, and false humility, and a neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgences {immorality} of the flesh. (Col 2:11-23)
Jude, the servant of Yeshua the Messiah, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by Elohim the Father, and preserved in Yeshua the Messiah, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and Love be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto the Saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old, ordained to this condemnation; Godless men, turning the grace of our Adonai Elohim, into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord; our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah.
I will therefore, put you in remembrance, though you once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels, which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the Judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also, these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion {Lordship}, and speak evil of {said} dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil, as he disputed about the body of Moses, did not bring against him a railing accusation, but said: The Lord rebuke you!
But these speak evil of those things that they know not; but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: Clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, for who is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying: Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousand Saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are Godless among them of all their Godless deeds which they have committed, and of all their hard speeches which Godless sinners have spoken against Him. These murmur; they are complainers, walking after their own lusts, and their mouth speaks great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. {e.g: the hero worship of rich & famous humans, and the covert or open desire to be one of them}.
But beloved, you remember the words, which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah: How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own Godless lusts. These are they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But you beloved, building up yourselves on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the Love of Elohim, looking for the mercy of our Lord, Messiah Yeshua, unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy: To the only wise Lord our Savior be the glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen! (Jude: all)
