REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS

Introduction to Seven Basic Doctrines of Hebrews 6:1-2

We have begun a review of the lessons covered last year. Enclosed is a list of the topics that were covered. Anyone wanting a copy of any of these lessons, please let us know. Repetition is one of the best ways to learn. This is one reason that the Set Apart Days are repeated year after year. Though I have been keeping these Days for over 40 years, the review of all of these subjects has increased my understanding as I am sure it will increase yours as we revisit these topics.

I will cover each Set Apart Day in their proper sequence as they arrive. I will also supplement these topics with other topics as they are requested or I see a need arise. I am also thinking of a topic about Satan called “Know Your Enemy.

This Sabbath’s Lesson is nine pages so it will probably take 2 Sabbaths to cover it. Every Sabbath, we have had some kind of technical or electrical problem. Please pray for a problem free Sabbath and for others to join us.

SEVEN BASIC DOCTRINES OF HEBREW 6:1-2

The Seven Basic Doctrines are: Repentance from dead works, Faith toward YAH, Baptism, Laying on of Hands, Going on to Perfection, Eternal Judgment, and the Resurrection of the Dead.

We have all studied the Set Apart Days and their meanings. We have kept the Passover, the Night to be Much Remembered, the First Day of Unleavened Bread and we will soon be observing the Last Day of Unleavened Bread. As many of you have commented, the actual observation of the Days brings a much deeper understanding and vision of YAH’s plan of Salvation for all mankind.

The basic doctrines reveal the conversion process that gives the power and understanding that actually bring about the real fulfillment of the Set Apart Days.

As we have discovered in previous studies, what mainstream Christianity teaches is very different than what the truth of Scripture reveals and so it will be with the seven Basic Doctrines. The world doesn’t understand what they really need to repent of, or what kind of Faith is needed for Salvation, or the correct biblical way to be baptized and receive His Set Apart Spirit as it is not generally taught or practiced.

The first Doctrine is: What is Repentance From Dead Works/What is Real Repentance?
Repentance means to change. In this case, a change of one’s heart and mind from sin to putting sin out; from evil to doing good. Examples of Dead Works are found in:

Galatians 5:19-21 – Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envying’s, murders, drunkenness, retellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of EL.
