Religion vs. Spirit

Religion says, “Do this and that and you will be saved.”
Yah says, “Enter into my rest,” which means stop your works; seek and do His will.

Religion says, “The Bible is the final authority.”
Jesus, the Living Word, says, “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about Me, yet you refuse to come to Me that you may have life. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name (authority, nature, character), He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”
