Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheynu Adonai Echad You are Lord, over all - Adonai Eloheynu Adonai Echad Heaven and Earth will shake, at the sound of Your Name The Lord our God, oh the Lord is One
A Study of Matthew 23:2-3 And More
THE TORAH—WAS IT “NAILED” TO THE CROSS?
We must stop and ask ourselves this question “If Yeshua came to do away with the Torah, Yahweh’s Teachings and Instructions, then how did this fit in with the “For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law (Torah) until all things are accomplished” (Holeman Christian Standard Bible Translation, Emphasis mine.) passage in Matthew 5:18, which clearly upholds the minutest points of Torah?” Why do ministers in Christianity teach this when the written text “clearly” teaches us that “not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law (Torah) until all things are accomplished?” This is something we all need to stop and strongly consider. We know that the earth and heavens have not passed away at this point. So, why in the world would we believe those who teach us that the “Law” has been done away with? We, not your pastor, Christian Theologian or TV Evangelist, are responsible for what we “receive,” i.e….listen to and apply to our daily walk with Him. When we stand before the Great I AM on Judgment Day there will only be you before Him. You will not have your pastor whom you “believed” to back you up. He will say to you “My child, you had my Written Word with you and yet you chose not to listen to Me by reading My Word but chose to listen to man and blindly receive what he taught you without reading My Word.” We do not take the time to stop and realize when we hear those teaching that the “Law” has been done away with or that it (the Law) was nailed to the cross is that those who teach this are saying that Yeshua is a liar.
The “only” thing that was nailed to the cross is the law of sin and death. Nothing more and nothing less.
Today, nearly two thousand years after the death and resurrection of Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus), most ministers and theologians would have you believe that the “Law” (Torah) was nailed to the cross. They teach that we are at liberty from the Law since we are now under grace. Scriptures such as Romans 3:28 are used to show you “that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the Law,” and others such as Romans 6:14 which states that “…ye are not under the law, but under grace.” Can it be true that the Law was indeed nailed to the cross?
PROPHECY CONCERNING MESSIAH
If indeed this is true, then why did Yahweh prophesy by the mouth of Isaiah approximately seven hundred years before Messiah the following:
Isaiah 42:1-4 “1 See, My Servant whom I (Yahweh) uphold, My Chosen One (Messiah Yeshua) My being has delighted in! I have put My Spirit upon Him (Yeshua); He brings forth right-ruling (judgment) to the nations. 2 He (Yeshua) does not cry out, nor lifts up His voice, nor causes His voice to be heard in the street. 3 A crushed reed He (Yeshua) does not break, and smoking flax He does not quench. He brings forth right-ruling (judgment) in accordance with truth (established in My Written Word—Torah). 4 He (Yeshua) does not become weak or crushed, until He has established right-ruling (judgment) in the earth. And the coastlands wait for His Torah (Teachings and Instructions).” (The Scriptures Translation, Emphasis mine.)
How could the Law have been magnified and made honorable IF it was nailed to the cross and abolished?
To further complicate this question, we must contend with another prophecy also. This one was given by the prophet Daniel over five hundred years before Messiah came to earth. Archangel Gabriel stated that “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people (Israel) and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem) to FINISH the transgression, and to make an END of sins,…” (Daniel 9:24, KJV).
It is known from 1 John 3:4 that sin is defined as the breaking of Yahweh’s Teachings and Instructions known to most as “The Law” because “whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law (Torah): for SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW.” (KJV, Emphasis mine.) This means that the Torah/Law would have to continue for at least seventy prophetic weeks, since without the Torah/Law there would be no sin. (Romans 4:15)
Going back now to Daniel’s prophecy, he states that it will take seventy prophetic weeks to make an end of sins. He further mentions that we are to “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem UNTO THE MESSIAH the Prince shall be seven weeks and three score and two weeks…” (a total of 69 weeks). (Daniel 9:25, KJV) [Emphasis mine.]
THE FULFILLMENT OF DANIEL’S PROPHECY
Messiah Yeshua did this when He died upon the stake/cross. He was our Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7; John 1:29). There is no need any more to sacrifice animals. “12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He (Yeshua) entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained Eternal Redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this cause He is The Mediator of the new testament (Covenant), that by means of death for the redemption of the TRANSGRESSIONS that were under the first testament (Covenant), they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.” (Hebrews 9:12-15, KJV) [Emphasis mine.]
TO FULFILL THE TORAH/LAW (Yahweh’s Teachings and Instructions)
Does this make an end of sins? Some would have you believe that the “Law” was fulfilled here (meaning that the Law had ended here). They quote the last part of verse 17 of Matthew Chapter 5 where it is written:
“I am not come to destroy (the law) BUT TO FULFILL.” (KJV, Emphasis mine.)
What is meant by Yeshua’s statement “but to fulfill?” The answer is given in Romans 8:3-4:
“3 For what the Torah (Law) could not do by itself, because it lacked the power to make the old nature (of mankind) cooperate, God did by sending His own Son as a human being with a nature like our own sinful one [but without sin]. God did this in order to deal with sin, and in so doing He (Yahweh) executed the punishment against sin in human nature, 4 so that the Just Requirement (Righteousness) of the Torah (Yahweh’s Teachings and Instructions) might be FULFILLED IN US…” (Complete Jewish Bible Translation, Emphasis mine.)
Because of the weakness of our flesh, we could not obtain eternal life; but only eternal death “For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23, KJV) [Emphasis mine.]
But because Yeshua/Jesus was able to live a perfect life without sin, He was able to claim Eternal Life, something that no one else was able to do. This He did so that we could have eternal life also, saving us from the penalty of sin which is death. “Therefore, there is no longer any condemnation (criticism, disapproval, denunciation, blame) awaiting those WHO ARE IN UNION (obedient to keeping the Torah/Law) WITH the Messiah Yeshua.” (Romans.8:1, Complete Jewish Bible Translation) [Emphasis mine.]
Notice that our redemption from the Torah/Law of sin IS NOT unconditional. It clearly states here that there is no condemnation to them who “walk not after the flesh.” Paul continues again on this point in verse 4 of the same chapter saying that “the righteousness of the law (Torah) might be fulfilled in us. WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, but after the spirit.” (KJV, Emphasis mine.)
THE PURPOSE OF THE TORAH/LAW
Many people who believe that the Torah/Law was nailed to the cross “think” that the Law was very harsh and cruel bringing death to all those who lived in them. They fail to recognize the purpose, which the Torah/Law serves. In Paul’s writings to the Galatians he mentions that “the law was OUR schoolmaster to bring US to Christ…” (Galatians 3:24, KJV) [Emphasis mine.]
Before a person knows any of Yahweh’s truths, he lives a life “contrary” to the Torah/Laws of Almighty Yahweh, since the carnal (unconverted) mind is enmity (hostile, hate, antagonism, bad feeling) against Yahweh (Romans 8:7). In fact, the things concerning the Spirit of Yahweh “are foolishness unto him” (1 Corinthians 2:14, KJV). A person does not even realize that he/she is committing sins against Yahweh until they become aware of the fact that there is an existing Teaching and Instruction/Law that defines sin, “for by the law (Torah) is the knowledge of sin” (Romans 3:20, KJV). [Emphasis mine.] Once a person does realize that the Torah/Law of Yahweh exists, he/she then knows that they have committed various sins against Yahweh, and that he/she (the person) carries the death penalty. It is a shocking realization. This is the reason why Paul writes that “we know that what things soever the law (Torah) saith, it saith to them who are under the law (to them who are under the penalty of death): THAT EVERY MOUTH MAY BE STOPPED and all the world may become guilty before God.” (Romans 3:19, KJV) [Emphasis mine.]
A WAY OF ESCAPE
After a person receives this knowledge, he/she then has to realize that the only way that they can have the penalty of death removed from them is to repent of their sins, be baptized (Hebrew-Mikvah-immerse), and receive the Spirit of Yahweh. He/she should then continue to observe the commandments of Yahweh the best he/she knows how to based on their reading and studying His Written Word and most importantly by the guidance by the Set-Apart (Holy) Spirit dwelling in you. (Matthew 28:19-20 and Luke 24:47).
Since a person can have the death penalty removed ONLY by accepting the sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua, and since everyone has committed sins and carries the death sentence, it can easily be seen why Paul writes “23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by His (Yahweh’s) grace through the Redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a Propitiation through faith in His (Yeshua’s) blood to declare His Righteousness for the remission of sins that ARE PAST through the forbearance of God; 26 to declare I say, at this time His Righteousness: that He might be just, and The Justifier of him (mankind) which believeth in Jesus. 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Romans 3:23-28, KJV). [Emphasis mine.] Paul continues in verse 31 of the same chapter “Do we then make VOID (make powerless, no good) the law (Torah) through faith? GOD FORBID: YES, WE ESTABLISH THE LAW.” [Emphasis mine.] Yes indeed, we do in fact establish the Torah/Law of Almighty Yahweh because before we knew the truth we did not keep the Torah/Law. We did not realize the Torah/Law existed.
This concludes our study of Part 4 of Part 6 on A Study of Matthew 23:2-3 And More. Stay tuned for Part 5.
DEDICATED — HIS UNSPEAKABLE GIFT
September 17, 2021
Deuteronomy 20 Second Corinthians 9
This WORD, “dedicated” is a gold mine of information; IF, we dig deeper than a “sinner’s prayer,” a lone book of John, our ticket to Heaven punched, and then sent on our merry wayward way with the proverbial pat on the eat of the pants — IF we dig deeper than all the hoopla of current public politics, education, and religion — wherein most folks have forgotten to put GOD’s Instructions for LIFE on the door posts of our houses (per Deuteronomy 11:18-20) LITERALLY!! A mezuzah by our door
Deu 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these MY [our never-changing GOD’s] WORDs in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand [always keep these WORDs handy], that they may be as frontlets between your eyes [always in the forefront of our mind!].
Deu 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deu 11:20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: [why?]
Deu 11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which YHVH sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of Heaven upon the earth.
In the din (https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=din+definition) of BLEATING for “peace & security,” The TRUTH of our Heavenly Father’s WORD becomes drowned into oblivion; until, we hear more clearly such voices as world renowned Atheist Richard Dawkins, who said in his book, The GOD Delusion:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” ― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
Mr. Dawkins seems to have his crosshairs on this morning’s Bible reading in both Deuteronomy 20 & Second Corinthians 9, regarding our households and “The CHURCH” therein (per Romans 16:5, 1 Corinthians 16:19, Colossians 4:15, Philemon 1:2). This is ALL ABOUT The BODY of MASHIYACH Christ and how ZEALOUS we are for safeguarding it! Sometimes… this means “guerrilla warfare”!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerrilla_warfare Apostle Paul told us:
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
POINT-BLANK: Richard Dawkins REMOVES this POSSIBILITY! because he declared WAR!
How serious is this? King Saul lost his kingship BECAUSE he defied the INSTRUCTIONS of GOD! He was to exterminate ALL the modified DNA “Nephilim” but he kept some alive; and, our Prophet Samuel asked King Saul:
1 Samuel 15:14 And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?
And today, I have to ask: “What’s this BLEATING I hear?” With the handwriting ON THE WALL, of THIS U.S.A. kingdom, our RETURNING KING will be here soon and HE will fulfill:
Revelation 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Revelation 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
Revelation 19:13 And HE was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and HIS name is called The Word of God.
As we should know by now, “the daze of sweet baby Jesus stories are over!” HE is now The LION of the Tribe of JUDAH! Revelation 19:13 is coming sOOn to a city near you… and me.
Deuteronomy 20 & Second Corinthians 9 are about BEING “dedicated.” We see this in Deuteronomy 20:5
Deuteronomy 20:5 And the officers shall speak unto the people [who have just been drafted into the military for WAR], saying, What man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it.
For this recruit to go back home and “dedicate” his house is what our MESSIAH is showing us how to do in:
John 10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of the dedication*, and it was winter.
John 10:23 And YESHUA Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
chănûkkâh HANUKKAH! our MESSIAH is honoring HANUKKAH!!
From H2596; initiation, that is, consecration: - dedicating (-tion).
“Solomon’s porch” is at the entrance of HIS (and your and my) FATHER’s HOUSE! Are we “fit for the battle of Jericho”?
Or had we best go home and dedicate our house?? In the words of our Apostle Paul:
2 Corinthians 9:1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you: …
2 Corinthians 9:9 (As it is written, HE hath dispersed abroad; HE hath given to the poor: HIS righteousness remaineth for ever.
(As it is written [WHERE? HERE IT IS!] lOOk:
Psalm 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in HIS Commandments.
Psa 112:2 HIS seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Psa 112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in HIS house: and HIS righteousness endureth for ever.
Psa 112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: HE is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
Psa 112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
Psa 112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
Psa 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
Psa 112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. (As it is written [WHERE? NEXT VERSE!]
*Psalm 112:9 HE hath dispersed, HE hath given to the poor; HIS righteousness endureth for ever; HIS horn shall be exalted with honour.
Psa 112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
THIS… THIS… THIS IS HIS unspeakable GIFT!!!
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the dedicating, HANUKKAH, of our house!

Deuteronomy 19 Second Corinthians 8
When YHVH thy ELohim hath cut off the nations,
whose land YHVH thy ELohim giveth thee,
and thou succeedest them,
and dwellest in their cities,
and in their houses;
We’re talkin’ “PROMISED LAND” here!
As this catapults into our NEAR FUTURE:
see First Corinthians 10 about how this pertains to us TODAY! AND verse 18
1 Corinthians 10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh:
Yes, we’re talkin’ sacrifices, in 1 Corinthians 10:18, AS WELL AS
SURVEYOR MARKERS designating our “PROMISED LAND”!
And, in Paul’s reply LETTER he writes:
2 Corinthians 8:2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
When Apostle Paul says:
2 Corinthians 8:15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.
what, pray tell, is Paul referring us to? SEE Exodus 16:18
Exodus 16:18 And when they did mete [measure] it with an omer [keep this “omer” in mind!], he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
Our NEW Testament Apostle Paul is directing our attention to this Exodus passage of Scripture (in The TORAH), about TOTAL provisions in the coming “PROMISED LAND” AND! When we go back and actually read what Paul is referring us to, we see that “the counting” [measure] of the “omer” is still included in our ETERNAL INSTRUCTIONS of ALMIGHTY GOD — as we read in Acts:
Acts 1:4 And [YESH-OO-AW’ after HIS death, burial, AND RESURRECTION] being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith HE, ye have heard of ME.
Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence [when the counting of the “omer” is FULL!!! at SHAVUOT/Pentecost the 2nd annual harvest — of wheat].
Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of HIM, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom [with surveyor markers] to Israel [as we read in Genesis 15:18 “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates (in current day IRAQ!):” and our Brothers were asking our MESSIAH about These SURVEYOR MARKERS! that were, and still are, being violated by ROME!]?
Acts 1:7 And HE said unto them, It is not for you [in the 1st Century] to know the times or the seasons [see Genesis 1:14 about our FATHER’s moadim/appointed times of ABBA’s REAL ESTATE COVENANT — “DECLARING the END FROM the beginning!” per Isaiah 46:8-10 until THE END according to Daniel 12:9 and “the time of the end” is RIGHT NOW!], which the Father hath put in HIS own power.
Acts 1:8 But ye [this includes you & me! IF we, also, count the “omer” to SHAVUOT/Pentecost, in order that we, TOO] shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto ME both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
To forget everything LEFT OF MATTHEW is a travesty! Without our “schoolmaster (Galatians 3:24),” it is impossible to understand these things “hard to be understood” (2 Peter 3:16). On-the-other-hand, when we read & heed The ENTIRE Holy BIBLE — VOILA!!!
When folks say that The LAW/TORAH of our never-changing CREATOR GOD
no longer applies, whether they know it or not, they are saying that it is OK
for someone else to infringe on their

Deuteronomy 16 – 18 Second Corinthians 7
Deuteronomy 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set HIM [YESH-OO-AW’] KING over thee, whom YHVH thy ELohim shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set KING over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger [a Gentile, like me, not even the pope!] over thee, which is NOT thy Brother.
Why do I believe Moses is foretelling us of our MESSIAH?
Deuteronomy 18:15 YHVH thy ELohim will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me [Moses]; unto HIM [YESH-OO-AW’ our SALVATION per H3444] ye shall hearken;
FLYING off this handle — into the NEW Testament:
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of ELohim.
With Isaiah 46:8-10 in mind (Isaiah being very close to the center of The BOOk)
Isaiah 46:8 Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
Isaiah 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am ALE [H410 your STRENGTH!], and there is none else; I am ELohim, and there is none like ME,
Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, MY counsel shall stand, and I will [still YET to come, ABBA is saying that HE will] do all MY pleasure:
I do not mean to “beat-this-drum-to-death”; and yet, this is at The CRUX of WHY we are here! Our late Brother, Brad Scott, said it profoundly well in his book, “The PRINCIPLE of the SEED” https://www.amazon.com/Principle-Seed-Bradford-Scott/dp/B002SHNIM0 “The SEED” of our FATHER Which-art-in-Heaven is ETERNAL! When our MESSIAH promised us ETERNAL LIFE, in John 3:15 & 16, HE was NOT speaking of life FROM-NOW-ON; but, LIFE from before created time WITHOUT BEGINNING OR END, even as HIS own LIFE (with a brief moment of DEATH!!! Our MESSIAH, Whom our FATHER chose “from among our JEWISH brethren” is so much FROM THE BEGINNING that HE (in very tiny Hebrew letters) IS in the very first verse of the ENTIRE HOLY BIBLE!!! Again,
The Aleph-Tav and its various forms occur more than ten thousand times throughout the Hebrew Bible. Here is Genesis 1:1 as it would be typically found in an interlinear Bible: [Hebrew is read from right to left, east to west, as HE will come!]
As you may notice, the middle word is the Aleph-Tav, and it is not translated [into Greek or English]. Aleph-Tav theorists claim that this is because even Hebrew scholars do not know what the Aleph-Tav means. They then suggest that the Aleph-Tav is actually Jesus’ signature, based on their interpretation of Jesus’ words in Revelation 1:8: “I am the Alpha and the Omega.”
Our Apostle Paul speaks to us about the importance of us Gentiles being “graffed in among them” (“them” being Israel, in Romans chapter 11). When we turn the pages of time to the book of Revelation, and enter that KINGDOM City, we see that there are NO Gentile gates! Only Israeli:
Revelation 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
As Gentile, Moabitess, RUTH entered the “Commonwealth of ISRAEL” via marriage to the “kinsman redeemer” Boaz — us NON-Israelis have only ONE opportunity to enter THAT “Commonwealth of ISRAEL” and it is by “IN-LAW” marriage to our KINSMAN REDEEMER YESH-OO-AW’! THAT WEDDING is coming SOON!!!
Clear back in Deuteronomy, our Prophet Moses is explaining to us WHO our MESSIAH IS and how to WELCOME HIM at HIS MOADIM = APPOINTED TIMES!!! There are 7; but, at 3 we are instructed to bring HIM our gifts!!! At the barley harvest, at the wheat harvest, and at the GRAND FINALE SUKKOT/TABERNACLES — The FEAST of IN-GATHERING! Some will be there. MOST will NOT. ULTIMATELY THEY will hear (according to our MESSIAH’s own WORDs):
Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to ME in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in THY name? and in THY name have cast out devils? and in THY name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that work iniquity [G458 anomia = without TORAH = LawLESSness!].

Hebrew Words Defined
by Brad Scott
There is a universal battle cry for those who embrace Jesus Christ as Lord and yet at the same time deny His words. "We are no longer under the law, but under grace." I meant what I just said. This has been the banner under which millions of Christians for hundreds of years have flown. Humankind, since the days of Adam, have turned away from the word of YHVH. It is a central part of our fallen nature. There are really three kinds of people in the world. Those who disobey the commands of YHVH because they do not acknowledge His existence, those who disobey Him and do it in His name, and those who claim His name and obey Him. Which one are you? When reading the Scriptures, it becomes quite evident that no matter what "dispensation" you are cruising through, disobedience is rampant, and so is chaos and moral decay. This is not only true today, but it seems to have reached it's pinnacle. At least in the times of the Judges or the times of David, YHVH's people realized that they had turned from His ways and repented now and then. Today, however, the modern church stills teaches that Yeshua‘’s death put an end to law. So we all stand by and watch as our society crumbles, having the peace of mind that it is not our fault. It is Satanism, the New World Order, the New Age Movement, the Catholics, the Democrats, liberalism, Bill and Hillary, Hollywood, Nintendo, Neo-Nazi's, and Oprah Winfrey.
I hope and pray that this study will begin to open your eyes to the commonly accepted interpretation of being under the law. Like many of the Hebrew words we have defined, this phrase has a background and an Old Testament meaning that is imperative in understanding it's New Testament use. This will take a few lessons to get through, but I believe it is very important. Yeshua', Sha’ul [Paul], and all the writers of the New Testament would have used the concept of law in the framework of it's previously established use. This word, or for that matter, the idea of being under the law, was not created in a vacuum. However, the use or misuse of this idea was so misunderstood by "Jew and Gentile" alike, that Sha’ul spends an incredible amount of time to make it clearly understood. Why so much attention to this word? Well, it is because one cannot draw the two usual conclusions to this matter. There seems to be a very fine line between obedience and what we call legalism. I hope to show that Sha’ul's desire for "Jew and Gentile" was that they lived in YHVH's glorious grace. He also stressed that YHVH's people walked in obedience in their newly found life in Yeshua', and that these two ideas were not in conflict. Considering the two opposing cultures, this was not an easy task. Drawing two such contrary views of life into one would take up a lot of writing space. I believe that the Messiah Yeshua‘ was the answer to that enmity created by the law between "Jew and Gentile".
The phrase under the law is found ten times in the New Testament. If you are familiar with scriptural numerics, then you will quickly notice that the number ten usually speaks of law or judgement for disobeying (10 commandments, 10 plagues, the tithe, etc.). I intend to discuss these ten occurrences. First, however, we must take the time to define what we mean by the law. As I have said many times before, the New Testament writers would have used this word as it has always been understood and defined. Simply put, if law was evil or bad in the Tanakh [Old Testament] then it would continue to be understood as evil or bad in the New Testament. If YHVH's laws were understood as righteous and set apart (holy) in the Tanakh, then they would continue to be defined as righteous and set apart in the New Testament. I would pray that this would not only be in harmony with the very nature of YHVH, but is simple common sense. If YHVH is constantly changing the meaning of these words, then there is no solid rock on which we are to stand. Our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Ivrim (Hebrews) 13:8). Do you believe that only Yeshua‘ was the same? YHVH does not change (Male’akiy (Malachi) 3:6). There is no explanation of the phrase under the law because it was already understood!
Many times I find modern Christian teachers teaching backwards! The modern church approaches the Scriptures by beginning in the New Testament, forming an understanding of its teachings, and then going back to the Old Testament to understand it's meaning. This denies the plain cultural meaning of the text and conforms the Scriptures to the ever changing ideology of the church rather than forming the church around the solid consistent rock of scripture. When you read the book of Acts, you see that, historically, the followers of Yeshua‘ did not simply accept whatever new teaching they heard. They could not have tested established revelation (Tanakh), which they knew to be true, by a new revelation which they did not know to be true. The three sections of the Tanakh were already accepted and established as YHVH's set apart, everlasting word. YHVH had already commanded, and Yeshua‘ confirmed, that a new teaching or claim of Messiahship was to be tested against what YHVH had already revealed, not the other way around. Interpreting the Scriptures backwards produces a message that is backwards. They could not have justified New Testament teaching by quoting the New Testament!
The English word law is translated from the Greek word nomos. It is very important to see how this word evolved because the defining of words change our image and perception of the full meaning of a sentence when it is formed. The translation process from Greek to English has already changed the meaning of law. In Greek society, the concept of law still held a positive, honorable, and instructive substance. When we peruse the Tanakh, we see that the law was reverently esteemed, and was given many other titles to describe it's place in the lives of YHVH's people. We will discuss those titles later. As this word traveled the translation process, it took on a much heavier, negative connotation. As early as the 3rd century A.D. the so-called early church fathers had already begun to denigrate this word. Law was already being taught as a product of 'the Jews'. An heretical character named Marcion taught that the entire Tanakh should be removed from the pulpits as well as many sections of the New Testament which put the law and 'the Jews' into a more positive light, such as the book of Luke and the book of Acts.
As the western culture progressed, the concept of law grew more and more negative. The whole scriptural concept of law and bondage was reversed. Law was taught as bondage, not sin. Certain cliches and phrases were adapted to express this bondage. What began in YHVH's word as light, life, righteousness, the Way, the walk, truth, goodness, and holiness, soon became disdained, loathed, and despised. IT'S THE LAW! LAW AND ORDER! THAT'S AGAINST THE LAW! HE BROKE THE LAW! I FOUGHT THE LAW AND THE LAW WON! The law has become the enemy. Today, in many movies the handsome bank robber or jewel thief is actually applauded over the bumbling representatives of the law, the police. Iniquity is actually portrayed as good and the law as bad! Law is no longer seen as good and righteous but is seen as nothing but fear and punishment. This is because the scriptural concept of law has been so twisted and redefined that it is virtually unrecognizable. I have come to at least one undeniable conclusion for a long time now. A nation's behavior is guided by it's philosophy, and a nation's philosophy is formed by it's religious values. All cultures and peoples form their society, no matter how large or small, from their view of whatever they deem to be the ultimate Superior. In this great nation it is supposed to be the 'God of the Bible'. But is it really? Next time we will begin with the creation of the very fabric of existence, Torah!
Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]

Is it possible for centuries of Bible teachers and scholars to have missed something vitally important in Paul's teachings? Could it be that Paul's writings actually support the Torah? Is the majority ever wrong?
Paul is often misunderstood, even Peter said that about him. But if we take the time to get to know Paul, he doesn't have to be. Join us in part 2 of the Pauline Paradox Series where see Paul evolve from a persecutor of Messiah's followers, to one of his greatest Law abiding advocates. Now is the time to learn the real Paul, the Paul you never knew.
Join us in part 3 of the Pauline Paradox Series. The common position of mainstream theology utilizes snippets from Paul to supposedly prove that God changed His law. However, many fail to take heed to Peter's warning about how people were twisting Paul's letters to promote a lawless doctrine.
Paul said that we are not "under the law"...but Paul makes mention of seven laws! Out of those seven laws, there is ONLY ONE we are no longer under. Which ONE law are we no longer under? Are we no longer under the law of God? A choice between context and doctrinal tradition is about to be placed before you...as we continue to "test everything" and ask "Which Law Paul?"
Ephesians 2 seems to say that the Law of God was abolished through our Messiah....or does it?
