Why are your “works” or actions important?

Rabbi Steve Berkson continues teaching about the relationship between salvation, faith/belief and works/actions by taking us to the letter from Peter, an emissary/apostle of Messiah Yeshua, to the chosen, and dissects what he said about being born-again and living in obedience by the Ruach.

Contrary to the vast majority of those who twist the writings (2 Peter 3:16) and teach that “works” are no longer important or necessary, Rabbi Steve Berkson brings us to the understanding of why “works” are important.

In part 9 of “Are You Saved?”, we read through James (Ya’akov) chapter 2 and now understand that faith/belief and works are intertwined so that one without the other cannot exist.

In this lesson, Rabbi Steve Berkson takes us to the book of Hebrews, chapters 11 and 12 to show us proof by examples that “by belief/faith” those “heroes” that came before us were inspired by “salvation” to exemplify their belief/faith with their works.

What is meant by “the substance of what is expected, and the proof of what is not seen”?

How did Moses see Him who is invisible? (Heb 11:27)

If our walk of faith is compared to a running a race to receive a prize, how does today’s society ruin that analogy? (Heb 12:1)

How does the Father keep us on the right path?

If “grace” is the “unmerited favor” of Elohim, how can one fall short of it?

In Matthew 24:12 Yeshua taught that because of the increase in lawlessness, the love of many will become cold–what is the love that’s connected to the Law (Torah)?

When Yeshua said, “But he who shall have endured to the end…”–what is meant by “to the end”?

Moving from there to the parable of the talents, Matthew 25:13-29, Rabbi Steve Berkson explains the idea of possessing and not possessing, entering into the joy of the Master, and how critically connected these concepts are to salvation, belief and works.

Rabbi Steve then takes us to the second chapter of James (Ya’akov) where we see a direct connection of belief in Messiah Yeshua to works.

What is it that Ya’akov calls the “Law of freedom”?

Does a person’s “belief” save them?

In this teaching Rabbi Steve Berkson continues clarifying our understanding about the relationship between salvation, faith and works, with a subtopic of guarding the commands and possessing the Witness.

Continuing from part 7, Rabbi Steve teaches further on the topic of guarding the Torah and possessing the Witness.

As he takes us to Luke 10:25 we see once again Messiah Yeshua being tested by someone considered as “learned”. We also see here the word “inherit” being used regarding eternal life. What does this mean? How does it bring an critical understanding to being “saved”?

In this passage we also see the question, “What must I do…”; how did Yeshua respond?

Is salvation through Messiah the same as receiving eternal life?

In Luke 8 we find the parable of the Seed and the Sower. Rabbi Steve takes us backwards through Yeshua’s explanation of this parable in order to understand it in a very unique way.

If the “soil” is symbolic of the heart of a person, are people locked-in to the type of “soil” they find themselves to be, or can people choose the type of “soil” they would like to be? To what is the “fruit” referring? What is the key word most people overlook when reading about the “good soil”?

In your excitement about discovering the truth of Torah, was your first reaction to run to tell your family and friends all about it? Rabbi Steve gives some crucial advice on how to avoid being blown out when starting your Torah-observant life.

Rabbi Steve continues to unpack and expand through scripture the understanding of this vital topic of the relationship between salvation, faith/belief and works.

Messiah Yeshua said, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate…” (Luke 13:24) Does salvation and reward require effort? What is that effort? To where does the narrow gate lead?

What does the saying mean, “Our righteousness is as filthy rags”?

In Acts 16:30 someone asked, “What do I have to do to be saved?” How are we saved?

Do we ‘need’ the writings of Paul, of Peter, or the other writers of the New Testament? Can a person lead another to the narrow path that leads to the Kingdom of Elohim without those writings?

What should be the correct order of reading and better understanding the books of the New Testament?

In Matthew 19:16-22 we see Yeshua telling a man to sell what they own and follow Him, but he went away sad because he had great possessions…what are you attached to that would keep you from wholly following the Messiah? Possessions? Family? Friends? Job? Career? What is it you love more than Him?

Rabbi Steve Berkson continues to clarify the relationship between salvation, faith/belief and works.

What does the Hebrew name Yeshua mean? Why was Yeshua born into this world as the Messiah?

In this teaching Rabbi Steve Berkson continues the topic on the relationship between salvation, faith/belief and works by looking at Yeshua as the Savior…the one who saves.

“I think that we get so verse-focused that we are missing the application, walking-it-out part.”

Rabbi Steve Berkson challenges our mindset this Shavuot 2018 about how we should be walking out our faith by taking a look at how the events of Mt. Sinai and the pouring out of the Holy Spirit of Acts 2 were major launching points toward breakthrough and moving forward.

Rabbi Steve Berkson focuses on the topic of “Who Shall be Saved?”, as he takes us to the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 13. There we find the parable Yeshua taught about “The Wheat and the Tares” – which was meant to describe two types of people within the congregation of Elohim.
How do we know today who is which? Does that responsibility rest on us? If Elohim knows about this (He does), why does He allow it? What will be done and when? By whom?

From there Rabbi Steve moves to Paul’s letter written to those who were in Rome–those who’s eyes and ears were opened and whose hearts were ready to receive–those who should know better.
In chapter 11 Paul begins by posing the question, “Has God rejected His people?” Rabbi Steve points out that even then people were consumed with “Who gets in and who doesn’t”. So much so that in chapter 11 we read Paul explaining the plan of Elohim through a metaphor using olive trees.
What are the branches? What is the root? What is the real problem going on here?

This teaching is loaded with what you need for your daily walk and to understand more deeply the love of the Father toward you.

Has the One who chose a group of people from among a group of people and set them apart unto Himself rejected those people? Has now another group of people replaced them? Weren’t there promises made according to The Covenant that was made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Wasn’t there an expectation by the chosen people that those promises were for them?

What does the Prophet Ezekiel have to say about the chosen people? What are the “sticks and bones” in Ezekiel chapter 37 all about? What are the “graves”? How do they connect with something Yeshua Messiah said?

What is “the stuff before the then”?

Rabbi Steve Berkson unpacks all this and more here in part 4. He also reminds us that periodically we need to stop and evaluate where we are in our walk to determine if we’re on the right path or if we need to backup to where we made a wrong turn and get back into the right direction.
