Romans 4:13-15

4:13-15 The promise to Abraham and his descendants, that they should inherit the world Note: not the Land, did not come through the Torah but through the righteousness of a’men. 14 If it is the adherents of the Torah who are to be the heirs, a’men is null and the promise is void. 15 For the Torah brings wrath, but where there is no Torah there is no transgression. 

What is a promise? 

When YHVH-God tells you that something is truth you can depend on it because of who he is, not because of how you live or what you do to receive the promise. YHVH enters into a legal agreement with you (covenant), and that covenant depends completely on him keeping his word. What then is your part to the covenant? Must you act a certain way? Promise to avoid some actions or embrace others?

The moment you see the covenant of YHVH as being dependent on yourself, on what you do, what you will gain is not the promise, but the wrath of YHVH because you WILL fall short of the required ideal. You do have a part in this covenant, it is to Amen the Word of God. This means that you stand in faith.When I say you "amen the Word" I'm not talking about the words in a book, I'm talking about the Word made flesh, Y'shua ha Mashiach- Jesus who is the Christ. Follow him in ?The Way."
