Just confess with your mouth?

I just recently watched a short video on YouTube about Yeshua coming back soon and I scrolled through the comments because those are usually very interesting, if not crazy. There was a comment from a girl who quoted this verse of Saul:

As anyone who visits my blog very often would know, I believe Yeshua is the Messiah with all my heart and I believe that He raised Himself from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights, as opposed to Eloheim raising Him, as Saul claims (see below).

But Yeshua raising Himself is not what I addressed in her reference. It is the “confess with your mouth” making you saved is what’s going to get people killed. I have a problem with that because Yeshua never said that and the Lamb’s apostles never say that. Yeshua does say:

Mat 7:21 -“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22) “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23) “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

“Just believing” is not enough. Even the demons believe, and tremble.

James, Yeshua’s brother, reminds us four times!

James 2:17 - Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
James is actually speaking to someone specific and the hint is in the word “foolish”. Can you figure it out?
James 2:24 - You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

And last, but certainly not least:

Confessing with your mouth may be the very first, tiny step but there is so much more to it. Remember, Yeshua tells those who “practice lawlessness” to depart from Him. He wants nothing to do with the lukewarm.

Listen to Yeshua! He is the way, the truth and the life!

It's not about me, it's about my Father, His holy, unchanging Word, Yeshua made flesh! No ear tickling here. (And maybe a couple of posted recipes that I've been unable to find online elsewhere. 😉)
