Jude 1:3
Beloved ones, I am writing to you in all haste, concerning our common salvation (deliverence). I felt it necessary to write to you urging you to earnestly contend for the belief which was once and for all delivered to those that are called.
As believers in Yahshua, we are to make sure we learn the true message of salvation

Matt. 7:24
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the Rock.
the rains came and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon the house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the Rock.

All the trials we have in this life we can overcome through or by the Rock, Yahshua. Yahshua brought the true message of salvation from His Father, one that had not been delivered before. He taught those whom He called for three and one half years. They knew the true message and taught it to many, it was His message they taught, not a counterfeit substitute. We must follow His teaching in all we do, not the teaching of any other, but the teaching of Yahshua.

1 Peter 2:21

For to this we were called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow in His steps. We should be learning His ways, His teaching following Him, Yahshua. Paul states that if we follow a man, it should be only as long as he follows Yahshua. 2 Cor.13:5

We are to "examine ourselves whether we are in the faith (belief). Prove ourselves, don't you know that unless Yahshua Messiah is in you, you are reprobates!! When we compare this with 1 Peter 2:21, we can see that Paul is saying that unless we follow in His, Yahshua steps, in His teaching, then we not being faithful.

1 John 2:6
The one who says he stays in Him (Yahshua) ought to walk even as He, Yahshua walked.

2 John 9
Everyone who is transgressing and not staying in the teaching of Messiah does not have the Father nor the Son.

The one staying in the teaching of Messiah, (what teaching ? that of Yahshua) has both the Father and the Son.

A warning!!

2 John 10
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, (the teaching of Yahshua) do not receive that one nor greet him.

In the Scripture we see Yahshua called many different titles, "Righteous One", "Light" "Righteous Judge" and others, and in Rev. 19:13 He is called the "Word of Yahweh".

John 14:6

Yahshua said, "I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the Father but by Me.

Yahshua was the representative of the Father, the "Word" the Spokesman. The Father created all that was created by, for and through Him.

John 8:12 Yahshua says, I an the Light of the world, he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness.

John 12:46

I am come into the world that whoever believes on Me should not abide in darkness.
Yahshua was the first born of many. And those that were there when the "Spirit" was poured out, at the "Feast of First Fruits" were the first fruits of the kingdom. If we want to be in that Reign of Yahshua, we must look to Him the "Starter" and "Finisher" of the plan of salvation. If we do not have Yahshua and follow Him and His teaching, we will be walking darkness and not even know it.
