“He (Yeshua) is the Stone . . . which became the very head of the corner. 12 And there is salvation in no other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved.” (Act 4:11-12)
To whom does the above statement apply?
“Yeshua said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.” (Joh 14:6)

To deny or refuse the Messianic office of Yeshua of Nazareth that came in the flesh is to refuse the renewal of The Covenant promised by Father God, ‘The Renewal’ consummated by the death and shed blood of Yeshua.
“Behold, the days are coming,” declares YHVH, “when I will renew the covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which THEY BROKE, although I was a husband to them,” declares the LORD. ” (Jer 31:31-32)
” . . . This cup which is poured out for you is the (kainos – renewed) covenant in My blood.” (Luke 22:20)
” . . .and he said to them, ‘Having gone to all the world, proclaim the gospel to all creation; 16 he who hath believed, and hath been baptized, shall be saved; and he who hath not believed, shall be condemned.” (Mar 16:15-16)
“He who believes in Him (Yeshua) is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (Joh 3:18)
7 “So you, son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 8 If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.” (Eze 33:7-8)
But hey, as the Pope said, don’t evangelize Judah . . .
God, forgive us . . .
