.Where Do I Go From Here?
“Therefore if any man be in The Messiah, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; Behold all things are become new”
2 Corinthians 5:17
There is nothing so freeing as breaking away from the world’s bonds of stress and confusion and entering into a new life with God, through Jesus / Yeshua the Messiah. A wonderful new life awaits where you can walk together with God and others of like spirit.
Sometimes when we finally submit to God He will immediately heal the sickness or pain, and take away the addictions and other things that haunt us. Other times freedom can be a longer process. Either way,
Be confident of this very thing; He that has
begun a good work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus the Christ:
Entering into a relationship with God is very much like entering into a marriage covenant; in fact that is one way the Bible describes it. It is a relationship that, with proper commitment and attention, will only get better and better as the years progress.
Here are some points to consider in regards to what it means to enter into a covenant with God.
- God loves you so much that He sacrificed His only Son for you (John 3:16)?
- God became flesh in the person of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah (John 1:14), and willingly died as a sacrifice, accepting upon Himself the penalty for your sins (1John 3:4 / Ten Commandments)?
- Are you willing to “repent” of your offenses against God (repent means both to ask for forgiveness for your offenses and to change your thinking so that you are no longer in conflict with God) (Acts 2:38)(1 John 3:4)?
- Do you accept that Yeshua / Jesus suffered and died on the cross, as a sacrifice for your sins, and that He rose again on the third day to defeat death and the devil for you, so that you could have abundant life in every area of life? (John 10:10, 1 Cor. 15:3-4)?
- Are you committed to entering into and remaining covenant relationship with Yeshua (Rom 10:9)?

As you begin your new life there will be many questions; it truly is an exciting adventure. You have just begun a whole new way of life and you will soon find that the more you pattern your life in the way that Yahweh God wants for you, the more you will be blessed and the more satisfying your life will become. He has your best interest at heart and He knows what is best for you. The more you allow Him to work in your life the more at rest you will be. The more satisfying your life becomes the more you will want to serve Him. And the more you serve Him the more satisfying your life will become. And the more you…..
As you apply the following information to your life you will sort of give yourself a jump start as you begin your journey.
As time goes on, you can study these principles further. But for now, by following these basic principles you will be on the road to a brand new life that will be more satisfying, more rewarding, more content and, at times, more adventuresome than ever before.
God always answers prayer. But just as children don’t always receive the answers they expect or want from their parents, we don’t always receive the answers from God that we want or expect either. But He will answer and He will always deliver, one way or another. Ask in faith and know that as you put His priorities first in your life; He will always be there for you too.
The Bible says , “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Yeshua the Messiah for the remission of sins. . .” (Acts 2:38). Baptism is an outward expression of the commitment you have already made in your heart. Click on “Water Baptism” for more information.

This is where the Together Fellowship Congregation, and specifically your Fellowship Group will be invaluable to you. They share your desire to love God, while while fulfilling His call on your life while living in a way that is pleasing to Him.
Some say there are more verses in the Bible devoted to money than any other single subject. Whether that is accurate or not one thing is for sure; but I do know that where your treasure is, that your heart is also. God knows this too and it is His desire that we not be bound to anything of this world.
There is a war raging of which only a few are aware. It appears to some as good vs. evil, and it is, but more specifically it is between Yahweh, the God of Righteousness and satan, the god of evil. satan creates turmoil in our lives often without us even knowing it. Until now, you have not been serving Yahweh God whole heartedly. But now that has changed. You have given your heart to the King of Kings and what a wonderful experience that is as you are cradled in His loving arms. But the devil doesn’t want to loose you. He doesn’t want you to be blessed and enjoy life. He may fight to keep you so be aware. But praise God, Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world!
Evangelism & Discipleship
In the Bible, the book of Acts chapter 17 verse 6, we have a record of the Apostle Paul and other followers of Yeshua who had come to town spreading the good news of the Messiah. The religious leaders of the day were threatened and replied “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too”.
As we share our faith with others we solidify the reality of God’s blessings in our own lives. There are so many who are lost and hurting; the privilige of sharing true life with them is blessing.
Giving Thanks and Faith
For the believer, every day should be Thanksgiving Day. Knowing that our testing and trials serve to build our endurance and that God is helping us to be all that we can be. In this way, we can even be thankful in the midst of challenges. Don’t loose heart! By His Spirit and all the many ways that Yahweh God helps us, He will see you through. Read on and you will see how giving thanks unto God, and having faith in Him, are intricately connected.
