"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21


Direct Relationship

You can enter into a deep, joyful and fulfilling relationship with the One Creator of heaven and earth without having anyone else involved in that relationship aside from the two of you: G-d and yourself.

Don’t let anyone tell you that your Creator is “unapproachable”. You don’t need anyone to stand between you and Him.

He is close to all who call upon Him in truth (Psalm 145:18).
Forgiveness

You are NOT damned to hell forever and ever. The One who created you knows your weaknesses; He doesn’t expect you to be more than human.

When you do wrong, you don’t need a blood offering to get your Creator to forgive you.

G-d gave us His word that He will freely forgive all who turn to Him in sincere repentance (Isaiah 55:7).
No Purchase Necessary

You don’t need to “purchase” G-d’s favor. You don’t need to “pay” for His favor with your righteousness or your sacrifice. You don’t need to present Him with anyone else’s righteousness or with their sacrifice.

“Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your G-d” (Micah 6:8). These are not “bargaining chips”; these activities, in and of themselves ARE intimacy with G-d (Jeremiah 9:23; 22:16)
