What Is Your Firm Foundation?

Updated on March 5, 2018

Mattityahu (Matthew) 7:24-27

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock,

And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them, shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand,

And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.”

Yeshua was talking about having a firm foundation. But, many are confused today what that foundation is. So, what is our firm foundation?

In the quick, fast, and in a hurry answer, our firm foundation is יהוה and His Torah. Read what Bereshit (Genesis) 1:1 says; “In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.”

In a longer answer, let us read what it says in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 6:4-9; “Hear, O Yisra’el: יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one! And you shall love יהוה with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your might. And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your heart, and you shall impress them upon your children, and shall speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, adn when you lie down, and when you rise up, and shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

No matter who you are, no matter where you are, no matter what you do, first and foremost in your life should be יהוה and His Torah. And, since we were having a hard time learning how to trust and obey, יהוה sent to us His Son to show us how to be who we are to be, go where we are to go, and do what we are to do and continually trust and obey Him (יהוה)- Yochanan (John) 4:34 says, “יהושﬠ (Yeshua) said to them, ‘My food is to do the desire of Him (יהוה) who sent Me, and to accomplish His work.’” Also, consider Mattityahu (Matthew) 5-7, which is so famously called “The Sermon on the Mount”; during these chapters in Mattityahu, יהושﬠ is teaching the Ten Commandments as a heart matter, because the heart of the matter is the matter of the heart. Also consider Pilipiyim (Philippians) 2:5-8, which says, “For, let this mind be in you which was also in יהושﬠ ha-Meshiach, who, being in the form of Elohim, did not regard equality with Elohim a matter to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, and came to be in the likeness of men. And having been found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, death even of a stake.”

My prayer is that each of you would come to know your firm foundation.

Be Blessed

Baruch ata, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech ha-olam, asher natan lanu et derekh ha’yeshua’ba’meshiach Yeshua, baruch hu. Amein

Blessed are You, Adonai Eloheinu, King of the universe, who gave to us the way of salvation through Yeshua ha-Meshiach, blessed be He. Amein.

Supporting Scripture and Statements

Yisra’el is all who are native-born and those who are grafted in.

Yochanan (John) 3:36--”He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life, but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim remains on him.”

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 5:22--”These Words יהוה spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a loud voice, and HE added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.”

The “Words” mentioned in the above Scripture- Devarim (Deuteronomy) 5:22 -is synonymous with the commands, the decrees, the laws, the precepts of יהוה … His Torah.
