WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 21.10-14.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 21.10-14.

WHEN YOU GO FORTH TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS DELIVERED THEM INTO YOUR HANDS, AND YOU HAVE TAKEN THEM CAPTIVE,

AND YOU SEE AMONG THE CAPTIVES A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, AND YOU DESIRE HER, AND YOU TAKE HER TO BE YOUR WIFE,

THEN YOU SHALL BRING HER HOME TO YOUR HOUSE, AND SHE SHALL SHAVE HER HEAD, AND TRIM HER NAILS,

AND SHE SHALL PUT OFF THE CLOTHING OF HER CAPTIVITY, AND SHE SHALL LIVE IN YOUR HOUSE AND GRIEVE FOR HER FATHER AND HER MOTHER FOR A MONTH OF DAYS.  AND AFTER THAT YOU SHALL GO INTO HER AND BE HER HUSBAND AND SHE SHALL BE YOUR WIFE.

AND IT SHALL BE IF YOU HAVE NO DELIGHT IN HER, THEN YOU SHALL LET HER GO WHEREVER SHE WISHES.  BUT YOU SHALL NOT SELL HER AT ALL FOR MONEY, NOR SHALL YOU TREAT HER LIKE A SLAVE, BECAUSE YOU HAVE HUMBLED HER.

THESE ARE LAWS OF WAR ESTABLISHED BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THAT APPLIED TO THE WAR WITH CANAAN, AND WARS OUTSIDE OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO DESTROY AND POSSESS CANAAN BECAUSE THE INIQUITY OF THE CANAANITES WAS FULL, AND GOD PROMISED TO GIVE CANAAN, THE PROMISED LAND, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GENESIS 15.16, GENESIS 17.8

OTHER WARS CONCERN NATIONS THAT ATTACK ISRAEL, AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE DEFEND THEMSELVES, AND DEFEAT THE ENEMY, AND ADVANCE INTO THE ENEMIES’ COUNTRY AND TAKE CAPTIVES.

THE ONLY NATION THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ATTACKED WITHOUT PROVOCATION IS THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO POSSESS TO BECOME THEIR EVERLASTING HOMELAND, ERETZ YISRAEL, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE NOT A CONQUERING PEOPLE.  THEY NEVER HAVE BEEN, NOR EVER WILL BE.  THE JEWISH PEOPLE SEEK TO LIVE IN PEACE BUT THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE NATIONS LOOK TO DESTROY HER AND OCCUPY HER GOD-GIVEN LAND.  BUT EVERLASTING PEACE WILL COME TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL WHEN THE MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND DESTROYS ALL THAT HATE ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  ZECHARIAH 14.12

ISRAEL HAS BEEN OCCUPIED BY THE ASSYRIANS, CURRENT DAY N. IRAQ AND S.E. TURKEY, IN 722 B.C.E./B.C., THE BABYLONIANS, CURRENT DAY IRAQ IN 586 B.C.E./B.C., THE PERSIANS, TODAY’S IRAN IN 538 B.C.E./B.C., THE GREEKS IN 332 B.C.E./B.C., THE ROMANS IN 37 B.C.E./B.C., THE BYZANTINES, IN 324 C.E./A.D., THE EASTERN ROMAN EMPIRE THAT THE ROMAN EMPEROR CONSTANTINE DEDICATED A NEW ROME, THE ISLAMIC ARABS IN 638 C.E./A.D., THE CRUSADERS, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC EUROPEANS FROM 1099 TO 1260 C.E./A.D., THE MUSLIM MAMLUKS IN 1260 C.E./A.D., THE OTTOMAN TURKS IN 1517 C.E./A.D., AND THE BRITISH IN 1917 TO THE TIME THE JEWS KICKED THEM OUT AND DECLARED THE LAND OF ISRAEL THEIR SOVEREIGN NATION IN 1948.

AND STILL ISRAEL BATTLES HER ENEMIES.  AND ISRAEL WILL DEFEAT HER ENEMIES.  BUT WARS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND KILLS ALL THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  DANIEL 9.26

SO GOD SAYS TO ISRAEL, IF A MAN SEES A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN FROM THE CAPTIVES OF WAR, AND DESIRES TO TAKE HER TO BE HIS WIFE, THEN TAKE HER ACCORDING TO MY LAWS, SAITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LET’S TALK ABOUT GOD’S LAWS.

YESHUA THE MESSIAH, WHOM CHRISTIANITY CALLS JESUS CHRIST, WAS ASKED, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

AND MESSIAH ANSWERED, AND SAID, THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL IS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. 

MARK 12.29

THESE WORDS THAT MESSIAH SPOKE COME FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN DEUTERONOMY 6.4

LET’S EXPLAIN WHAT THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT MEANS.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR HEAR, AS IN, HEAR O ISRAEL, IS SHEMA.  SHEMA MEANS, HEAR AND OBEY.  GOD TEACHES ALL MANKIND TO HEAR AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. 

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT TEACHES THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

IF WHAT YOU HEAR OR READ DOES NOT AGREE WITH GOD’S COMMANDMENT, OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, THEN WHAT YOU ARE HEARING OR READING IS NOT TRUTH.

GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT GOD, AND WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF ALL MANKIND.  AND THAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED WHEN JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

EVERY WRITER OF THE BIBLE IS JEWISH EXCEPT PERHAPS LUKE.  MATTHEW IS MAHTEETYAHU, MARK IS MARCOS, LUKE IS LUKAS, JOHN IS YOKHANAN, PAUL IS SHAUL OR SAUL, JAMES IS YA’AKOV, OR JACOB, PETER IS SHIMONE, AND JUDE IS YEHUDAH, OR JUDAH.  ALL ARE JEWISH AS IS MESSIAH YESHUA AND HIS DISCIPLES AND APOSTLES WHO WERE JEWISH. 

AND GOD IS JEWISH.

EXODUS 4.22 MATTHEW 1.1-2, ISAIAH 43.10-11, ROMANS 2.13

GOD IS THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES.  AND EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING TO HEAR AND OBEY.  AND GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR EVERYBODY.  AND THAT ONE LAW IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN IT FOR ALL MANKIND TO LIVE BY.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  AND THE LAW OF MOSES DOES NOT CONTAIN THE LAWS OF MOSES.  RATHER THE LAW OF MOSES CONTAINS THE LAWS COMMANDED BY GOD FOR ALL MANKIND.

THE LAW OF MOSES TEACHES GOD’S SABBATH FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN ON SATURDAY, AND THE OTHER SABBATHS OF GOD.  GOD’S LAW OF MOSES ALSO TEACHES THE FESTIVALS OF THE LORD SUCH AS PASSOVER AND TABERNACLES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23.  AND THE LAW OF MOSES TEACHES ATONEMENT, AND GOD’S FOOD LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 11 AND DEUTERONOMY 14,  AND OTHER LAWS OF GOD THAT WHEN OBEYED ALONG WITH YOUR FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS, YOU LIVE A HOLY LIFE IN THE LORD YOUR GOD.  AND THAT RESULTS IN A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

SO GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, JESUS CHRIST SAYS TO ALL MANKIND, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

WHY HEAR O ISRAEL?  BECAUSE GOD REQUIRES ALL ISRAEL, WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND AS GOD’S WITNESSES, THE JEWISH PEOPLE TELL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE THEY WROTE THAT GOD REQUIRES EVERY HUMAN BEING TO OBEY HIM.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT WITH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS SALVATION. 

AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

MATTHEW 4.4, ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

WHEN MESSIAH WAS ASKED, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL, HE SAID, THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL IS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

MESSIAH DID NOT SAY, THE LORD IS THREE.  MESSIAH SAID, THE LORD IS ONE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  NOT ONE GOD IN THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS, OR ONE GOD IN THREE DIFFERENT gods.  THE TRINITY TEACHES THAT THE FATHER IS A GOD, THAT JESUS IS ANOTHER GOD DISTINCT IN NATURE AND DIFFERENT THAN THE FATHER.  AND THE SPIRIT IS ANOTHER GOD DISTINCT IN NATURE AND DIFFERENT FROM BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON. 

THE TRINITY TEACHES THREE DIFFERENT gods AND THAT IS IDOLATRY.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

IT IS WRITTEN IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, OUT OF THE HOUSE OF SLAVERY.  YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER gods BEFORE ME. 

EXODUS 20.1-3, DEUTERONOMY 5.6-7

GENESIS 1.1 READS, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IN GENESIS 1.1 IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

32 TIMES IN GENESIS CHAPTER 1, THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  IN FACT, THE HEBREW WORD ELOHIM, MEANING GODS, IS WRITTEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SOME 3,000 TIMES.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

SO WHY DOES GOD REFER TO HIMSELF AS ELOHIM, GODS?

BECAUSE GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER,, THE LORD IN HEAVEN, HE IS MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF MAN, THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE, AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND OFTEN THE ANGEL OF THE LORD AND THE ANGEL OF GOD.  WHEN MELCHIZEDEK MET WITH ABRAHAM, THAT WAS GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.  AND WHEN GOD ALMIGHTY APPEARED TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, MOSES, AND OTHERS, THAT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA.

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD. 

THUS GOD’S NAME, AND A VERY IMPORTANT NAME IS ELOHIM.

WHEN MESSIAH YESHUA SPOKE WITH GOD THE FATHER IN HEAVEN, GOD SPEAKS TO GOD. 

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

JOHN 17.1, MARK 16.19, PSALM 110.1, GENESIS 1.26, GENESIS 3.22

WHEREVER YOU SEE GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, THAT IS MESSIAH YESHUA.

JOHN 1.1-5, GENESIS 17.1, GENESIS 18.1, GENESIS 19.24, EXODUS 24.10, EXODUS 33.11, 17-23

EXODUS 33.17-23  GOD IS SPIRIT.  BUT WHEN GOD APPEARS IN HUMAN FORM, THE FACE OF GOD IS SEEN.  IN THIS WRITING OF EXODUS 33.23, MOSES SAW THE BACK OF GOD’S SPIRIT, BUT MAN CANNOT SEE THE FACE OF GOD’S SPIRIT AND LIVE.

JEREMIAH 23.24, JOHN 4.24

I BELIEVE THAT WILL CHANGE WHEN WE, THE FAMILY OF GOD, ARE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL, AND IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.

WHAT IS SIN?  SIN IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  DISOBEYING ANY LAW WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IS SIN.

1 JOHN 3.4-6, PSALM 105.8-10, REVELATION 14.12-13, ETC.

HOW DO WE LIVE OUR LIFE DEAD TO SIN?  BY OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES. 

ROMANS 6.1-6, 1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

WHY WILL GOD DESTROY THE WORLD?  BECAUSE THE WORLD DISOBEYS THE LAW OF MOSES. 

ISAIAH 24.4-6, 1 JOHN 3.4

AND GOD’S LAWS ARE NOT DIFFICULT. 

1 JOHN 5.3, JOHN 1.9

WHEN YOU HAVE DOUBT READING A SCRIPTURE, OR HEARING A BIBLE TEACHER, ALWAYS REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL; HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. 

OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. 

EVERY WORD IN THE BIBLE MUST AGREE WITH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE ONLY WAY TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TO OBEY GOD.  EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  ACTS 5.32

SO IN CONCLUSION, THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL IS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.  MEANING, HEAR AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL, THE MYSTERY OF GOD, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

ELOHIM

THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HAS MANY NAMES, BUT THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT BIBLICAL NAMES OF GOD ARE YEHOVAH AND ELOHIM.

YEHOVAH IN HEBREW MEANS LORD.  ELOHIM IN HEBREW MEANS GODS.  ALTHOUGH WHEN APPLIED TO THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, ELOHIM, GODS, IS USED IN THE SINGULAR, GOD.

SO WHY DOES GOD REFER TO HIMSELF SOME 3,000 TIMES IN TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES AS ELOHIM, GODS, WHEN THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS?

BECAUSE GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER, THE LORD IN HEAVEN.  HE IS MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF MAN, THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE.  AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND OFTEN THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD.  GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE GLORY OF GOD, THE SHEKHINAH, THE DIVINE PRESENCE OF GOD.  WHEN MELCHIZEDEK  MET WITH ABRAHAM, THAT WAS YESHUA THE MESSIAH, GOD ALMIGHTY.  WHEN GOD ALMIGHTY APPEARED TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, MOSES, AND OTHERS, THAT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA. 

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD. 

THUS AN IMPORTANT NAME FOR GOD IS ELOHIM.   

GENESIS 1.26, GENESIS 3.22, GENESIS 14.18-20, GENESIS 17.1, GENESIS 18.1, GENESIS 19.24, EXODUS 3.2-4, EXODUS 20.1-3, EXODUS 24.10, EXODUS 33.11,17-23, DEUTERONOMY 5.6-7, DEUTERONOMY 6.4, PSALM 110.1, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 45.8, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 45.7, PSALM 110.1, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.10-11, ISAIAH 44.6,8, ISAIAH 45.5,6,14,18,21, ISAIAH 48.16-18, MATTHEW 1.1,21, MARK 12.29, MARK 14.61-62, MARK 16.19, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, JOHN 17.1, HEBREWS 7.1-3

EXODUS  33.17-23  GOD IS SPIRIT.  HOWEVER WHEN GOD APPEARS IN HUMAN FORM, THE FACE OF GOD CAN BE SEEN.  MOSES SAW THE THE BACK OF GOD’S SPIRIT.  BUT MAN CANNOT SEE THE FACE OF THE FULLNESS OF GOD’S SPIRIT AND LIVE.

JEREMIAH 23.24, JOHN 4.24

I BELIEVE THAT WILL CHANGE WHEN WE, THE FAMILY OF GOD, ARE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL, AND IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

DEUTERONOMY 6.4 READS IN THE HEBREW, SHEMA YISRAEL, ADONAI ELOHAYNU (OUR GODS), ADONAI EKHUD. 

HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD (OUR GODS), THE LORD IS ONE.

ONE IN HEBREW, AS THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE, IS EHKHUD, A PLURAL FORM OF ONE BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, BUT GOD IS MANY CALLED GOD.

AND ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from The Law of Moses in Deuteronomy 21.1-9.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 21.1-9.

DEUTERONOMY 21.1-8  IF ONE IS FOUND KILLED IN THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS IT, LYING IN THE FIELD, AND IT IS NOT KNOWN WHO HAS KILLED HIM,

THEN YOUR ELDERS AND YOUR JUDGES SHALL COME FORTH AND THEY SHALL MEASURE TO THE CITIES WHICH ARE AROUND THE ONE KILLED.

AND IT SHALL BE THAT THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE ONE KILLED, THE ELDERS OF THAT CITY SHALL TAKE A HEIFER WHICH HAS NOT BEEN WORKED WITH, AND WHICH HAS NOT DRAWN IN THE YOKE,

AND THE ELDERS OF THAT CITY SHALL BRING THE HEIFER DOWN TO A ROUGH VALLEY WITH A STREAM IN IT, THAT HAS NEITHER BEEN PLOWED NOR SOWN, AND SHALL BREAK THE HEIFER’S NECK BY THE BROOK.

AND THE PRIESTS, THE SONS OF LEVI, SHALL COME NEAR, FOR THEM THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN TO MINISTER TO HIM, AND TO BLESS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.  AND BY THEIR MOUTH SHALL EVERY CONTROVERSY AND EVERY STROKE BE.

AND ALL THE ELDERS OF THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE ONE KILLED SHALL WASH THEIR HANDS OVER THE HEIFER WHOSE NECK WAS BROKEN BY THE BROOK.

AND THEY SHALL ANSWER AND SAY, OUR HANDS HAVE NOT SHED THIS BLOOD, NEITHER HAVE OUR EYES SEEN IT.

ATONE FOR YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL WHOM YOU HAVE REDEEMED AND RESCUED, O LORD, AND FORGIVE THEM, AND DO NOT PUT INNOCENT BLOOD IN THE MIDST OF YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL.

THE KEY HERE IS THAT GOD FORGIVES THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICIAL SLAUGHTER, AND ATONEMENT MADE BY THE HEIFER.  PERHAPS THE WAY THE HEIFER WAS KILLED REVEALS THE AGONY THAT THE INNOCENT VICTIM EXPERIENCED, AND THE PUNISHMENT THE MURDERER WILL RECEIVE.

ALSO IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ELDERS OF THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE DEAD BODY, AND THE PRIESTS TO DETERMINE WHO DID IT.  AND THEN THE PRIESTS WILL DECIDE THE PUNISHMENT FOR THE KILLER IF AND WHEN HE OR SHE IS FOUND.

BUT NO ONE CAN HIDE FROM GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 19.21, JEREMIAH 23.23-24

DEUTERONOMY 21.9  AND YOU SHALL PUT AWAY THE GUILT OF INNOCENT BLOOD.  THAT IS TO SAY, GOD WILL CLEAR THE INNOCENT FROM SIN AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHEN THEY SHALL DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

THE TITLE OF THIS MESSAGE IS, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

SO I DECIDED TO LOCATE THE FIRST BLESSING OF GOD THAT IS RECORDED IN THE BIBLE THINKING THAT ABEL RECEIVED THE FIRST BLESSING.  AND THEN I REMEMBERED THAT ABEL WAS KILLED BY HIS BROTHER CAIN.

I’M ASSUMING THAT GOD BEGAN THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM WITH ADAM AND EVE WHEN THE LORD MADE COATS OF ANIMAL SKINS FOR THEM AFTER GOD HAD ADAM SACRIFICE A CLEAN ANIMAL OR ANIMALS TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SIN, DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

LET’S GO BACK IN HISTORY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION WHEN GOD PLANTED THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND THERE HE PUT THE MAN ADAM WHOM HE FORMED OUT OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND.  AND YOU ALL KNOW THE WORDS OF SOLOMON, THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

AND YOU ALL KNOW THE WORDS THAT GOD SAID TO ADAM IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN YOU MAY FREELY EAT, BUT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF IT.  FOR IN THE DAY THAT YOU EAT OF IT, YOU WILL SURELY DIE. 

THESE ARE THE FIRST WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE TO A HUMAN BEING.  A COMMANDMENT.  AND GOD’S COMMANDMENT IS LAW.

SO AS THE WORLD KNOWS, ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD AND LISTENED TO THE SNAKE SATAN, AND ATE THE FRUIT OF THE TREE THAT GOD COMMANDED ADAM NOT TO EAT.  AND IN TIME, AS GOD SAID, ADAM AND EVE, WHOM GOD CREATED TO LIVE FOREVER, DIED BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN OF DISOBEYING THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

SO GOD BEGAN THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM FOR ATONEMENT BACK THEN WITH ADAM AND EVE BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN OF DISOBEYING GOD.  AND I’M SURE ADAM AND EVE TOLD THEIR CHILDREN TO OBEY GOD, AND THAT GOD REQUIRED AN ANIMAL SACRIFICE TO FORGIVE THEIR SINS.

AND YOU KNOW WELL THESE WORDS THAT GOD SPEAKS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES; AND THESE WORDS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY SHALL BE IN YOUR HEART, AND YOU SHALL TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY TO YOUR CHILDREN AND SHALL TALK OF THEM WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE, AND WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY, AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN AND WHEN YOU RISE UP.  DEUTERONOMY 6.6-7

I’M GUESSING THAT ADAM AND EVE TAUGHT SIMILAR WORDS TO THEIR KIDS.  ADAM AND EVE BOTH SPOKE WITH GOD FACE TO FACE, AND AFTER THEY DISOBEYED GOD, THE LORD TOLD THEM WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE FOR THEIR SIN.  YOU CAN READ OF THEM IN GENESIS 3.  BUT LIKE MOST CHILDREN AND ADULTS, VERY, VERY FEW PEOPLE DO WHAT GOD SAYS.

SO CAIN, ADAM AND EVE’S FIRST SON, DECIDED TO DISOBEY GOD.  AND RATHER THAN BRING A CLEAN ANIMAL TO THE LORD FOR A SACRIFICE TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR HIMSELF, HE BROUGHT CROPS FROM HIS GARDEN TO THE LORD.  AND ABEL, HIS BROTHER, THE SECOND BORN TO ADAM AND EVE, OBEYED GOD AND BROUGHT THE FIRST BORN OF HIS FLOCK FOR A SACRIFICE.  AND THE BIBLE SAYS, THE LORD HAD RESPECT FOR ABEL’S OFFERING, BUT THE LORD DID NOT RESPECT CAIN’S OFFERINGS OF CROPS.

AND GOD ASKED CAIN, WHY ARE YOU ANGRY?  WHY IS YOUR FACE FALLEN?  AND GOD ASSURED CAIN THAT IF HE DID WELL AND OBEYED GOD, THE LORD WOULD ACCEPT HIM AND RECEIVE HIM, AND GIVE HIM FAVOR.  AND CAIN WOULD BE RIGHT WITH GOD.  AND GOD WILL BLESS HIM.

THAT IS WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES THROUGHOUT FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, BY GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA, THE PROPHETS, THE DISCIPLES, THE APOSTLES, THE WRITERS OF THE BIBLE, AND SO MANY OTHERS, THAT IF YOU DO RIGHT BY OBEYING GOD, BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, THE LORD WILL ACCEPT YOU, AND RECEIVE YOU, AND GIVE YOU FAVOR, AND YOU WILL BE RIGHT WITH GOD, AND GOD WILL BLESS YOU.

GOD’S SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.  THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME.

BUT THE WORLD FOR THE MOST PART DOES NOT OBEY GOD, OR ANYTHING GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE.  AND HORDES OF PROFESSIONAL BIBLE TEACHERS TEACH THE WORLD NOT TO OBEY GOD WITH THE IDIOTIC TEACHING THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES. 

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  AND FOR THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, THEY HAVE CREATED BIG PROBLEMS FOR THEMSELVES AND FOR THOSE WHO RECEIVE THEIR LIE.  2 PETER 3.16

2 PETER 3.16  TO WREST THE SCRIPTURES MEANS TO PERVERT, TWIST, ABUSE, POISON, LEAD ASTRAY, AND TORTURE THE SCRIPTURES. 

SO CAIN KILLED ABEL.  WHY?  BECAUSE CAIN’S WORKS OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD WERE EVIL, AND HIS BROTHER ABEL’S WERE RIGHTEOUS.  1 JOHN 3.12

CAIN AND ABEL WERE NOT JEWISH.  FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION, GOD REQUIRES ALL MANKIND TO OBEY HIM.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD.  BUT THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL TEACH THE WORKS OF EVIL.

AND PERHAPS THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS THE CANCER OF ANTI SEMITISM HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.  WHY?  ONE REASON IS BECAUSE GOD SAID TO SATAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THAT HE WOULD PUT HATRED BETWEEN THE WOMAN, WHO IS ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND SATAN AND HIS SEED.  SATAN’S SEED ARE THOSE WHO ARE LIKE SATAN WHO HATE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

AND PERHAPS ANOTHER REASON FOR ANTI SEMITISM IS BECAUSE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY GOD WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD IS NOT TAUGHT TO OBEY THE GOD OF CREATION, THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY GOD FROM THE BIBLE, BUT MOSTLY THROUGH THE TEACHINGS OF TALMUD.  TALMUD IS RABBINIC LAW, THAT IS ALSO JEWISH LAW.  AND ALTHOUGH TALMUD, WITH ITS MANY RABBINIC LAWS, IS PREDOMINATE IN JEWISH LIFE, THE TALMUD ALSO TEACHES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE PROPHETS, AND THE WRITINGS SUCH AS THE PSALMS AND THE PROVERBS. 

JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY THE BIBLICAL TEACHINGS OF GOD.

BUT MUCH OF THE WORLD TEACHES THAT TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IS ABOLISHED.  AND THE REST OF THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF JUDAISM SIMPLY DOES NOT TEACH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD FROM THE BIBLE.  THEREFORE LIKE CAIN, MANY PEOPLE REJECT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE, OR THEY ARE NOT TAUGHT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD, OR THEY DON’T CARE, OR THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN THE BIBLE, OR THEY REJECT THE BIBLE.

BUT ONE DAY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT IS FULLY PART OF THE BIBLE, AND THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THEIR MESSIAH.  BUT WHEN WILL NON JEWISH PEOPLE START TO SEE THE TRUTH OF BIBLICAL TEACHING?

GENESIS 2.15-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, 15, 21, GENESIS 5.5, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53, ECCLESIASTES 1.9, ZECHARIAH 12.10, REVELATION 12.13

SO WITH THAT SAID, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD GIVES TO THOSE WHO DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.

DOING RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, AND MOSES  TEACH THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  DOING RIGHT IS LIVING BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. 

GOD TOLD ADAM AND EVE AND CAIN AND ABEL TO OBEY HIM AND IT WOULD GO WELL WITH THEM.  AND THAT IS WHAT GOD TEACHES YOU FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AND IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE FIRST BLESSING RECORDED IN THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN IN GENESIS CHAPTER 1 WHERE GOD SAID, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, AND EVERYTHING IN THEM.  AND GOD CREATED US, EVERY HUMAN BEING.  AND ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE IN PREDESTINATION, WE HAVE GOD’S GREAT BLESSING TO LIVE ON THIS EARTH WHICH AT TIMES CAN BE A TOUGH ASSIGNMENT.  BUT GOD IS WITH US, TO PROTECT US, AND GIVE US GOOD SUCCESS, AND BLESS US WHEN WE OBEY HIM.  AND WE ALSO HAVE THE GREAT BLESSING IF WE DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD BY OBEYING HIM, OF SPENDING ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD OUR GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA WHERE THERE IS NO DEATH, NO SIN, NO CURSE, NO PAIN, NO TEARS, AND NO SORROW, BUT EVERLASTING JOY AND HAPPINESS.

AND THE BIBLE GIVES US THE FORMULA, THE GOOD NEWS, THE GOSPEL, THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ON HOW TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  AND GOD’S FORMULA TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS BY DOING THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.  LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES GOD’S SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8, MATTHEW 7.21-23, ROMANS 8.29-30, EPHESIANS 1.5, 11, REVELATION CHAPTERS 21 & 22

THE INDIVIDUAL WHO IS FIRST RECORDED IN THE BIBLE TO RECEIVE GOD’S BLESSING WAS ENOCH.  GENESIS 5.21-24

ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, AND HE WAS NOT, FOR GOD TOOK HIM.  GOD TOOK ENOCH TO HEAVEN PROBABLY THE SAME WAY GOD TOOK ELIJAH TO HEAVEN.  2 KINGS 2.1, 11

ELIJAH WALKED WITH GOD AS ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, AND GOD TOOK ELIJAH TO HEAVEN WHILE HE WAS YET ALIVE AS HE DID WITH ENOCH.

FOR ANYONE TO BE TAKEN UP INTO HEAVEN LIKE ENOCH AND ELIJAH, YOU MUST CLOSE YOUR EARS TO THE LIE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, BUT OPEN YOUR EARS TO THE TRUTH THAT GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. 

AND LIVING BY THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOT DIFFICULT.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LUKE 4.4, LUKE 8.21, 1 JOHN 5.3

THE WORD WALKED IN HEBREW, AS IN ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, IS KHAH’LAKH MEANING, FOLLOWED.  ENOCH FOLLOWED GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN ENOCH’S DAY.  READ GENESIS CHAPTERS 1 THROUGH CHAPTER 5 TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT GOD SPOKE IN THE DAYS OF ENOCH.

THE NEXT PERSON AND PERSONS BLESSED IN THE BIBLE ARE NOAH AND HIS FAMILY, EIGHT PEOPLE IN ALL.  WHY?  BECAUSE NOAH WAS A JUST MAN AND PERFECT, AND NOAH WALKED WITH GOD.  AND GOD SAW NOAH AS RIGHTEOUS BEFORE HIM.

GOD SAVED ONLY EIGHT PEOPLE FROM THE FLOOD, NOAH AND HIS FAMILY.  AND THEY ALSO INHERITED ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  EVERYONE ELSE DIED IN THE FLOOD BECAUSE THEY DISOBEYED GOD. 

GENESIS 6.5-9

GOD SAID, NOAH WAS A JUST MAN.  THE HEBREW FOR JUST IS STAH’DEEK MEANING LAWFUL.  THAT IS LAW ABIDING.  NOAH OBEYED GOD.  AND HE WAS RIGHTEOUS AS ENOCH AND ELIJAH WERE RIGHTEOUS.  NOAH DID WHAT GOD SAID.  HE DIDN’T LISTEN TO THOSE WHO SAID DIFFERENTLY, LIKE THOSE WHO SAY THE LAW IS ABOLISHED.

FROM THE DAYS OF ADAM AND EVE, MANY ARE BLESSED BY GOD FOR OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS WHICH ARE BUT A FEW.

GENESIS 7.1-2, MATTHEW 7.13-14, MATTHEW 22.14

HERE’S A FAMILIAR SCRIPTURE SEEN BY MANY EVERY SUNDAY.  MATTHEW 26.26-28

MESSIAH DID NOT SAY THAT HE CAME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  BUT ON THE CONTRARY, HE CAME TO SHED HIS BLOOD FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  MATTHEW 1.21

AND THEN WHAT, NOW THAT YOU BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA?  GOD REQUIRES YOU TO DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THAT INCLUDES OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES. 

AND YOU WILL MEET ABEL AND ENOCH IN HEAVEN, AND ELIJAH, AND NOAH AND HIS FAMILY, AND ALL THOSE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD WHO LIVED THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, AND THOSE WHO BLESSED THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 25.31-46

HERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES TEACHING YOU THAT GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 28, MATTHEW 6.31-33, MATTHEW 13.23, ACTS 5.32, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 8.6-7, EPHESIANS 5.1, JAMES 1.25, AND REVELATION 22.14 IN KJV & NKJV

SO YES, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND CONTINUE TO COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

GOD’S LAWS FOR WAR AND MILITARY SERVICE

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue in Deuteronomy 20.1-20.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR WAR AND MILITARY SERVICE.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 20.1-20.

DEUTERONOMY 20.1  WHEN YOU GO OUT TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES AND SEE HORSES AND CHARIOTS, AND A PEOPLE MORE THAN YOU, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THEM, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU WHO BROUGHT YOU UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.

CAN THIS BE THE REASON FOR ANTI SEMITISM?  BECAUSE THE LORD GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR?  IS ANTI SEMITISM AND ANTI ISRAEL A PRODUCT OF JEALOUSY THAT GOD HAS CHOSEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, AND THAT GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR?

ANTI SEMITISM CONTINUES BEING A GLOBAL CANCER TODAY THAT SPITS OUT LIES ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR.

SO WHY IS GOD WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE?  BECAUSE IT IS AN ACT OF GRACE ON BEHALF OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY TO CHOOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.

THE PROPHET MOSES SPOKE GOD’S WORDS TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS 3,400 YEARS AGO JUST BEFORE THEY FOUGHT AGAINST, AND POSSESSED THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT GOD GAVE HIS JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN INHERITANCE.

MOSES SAID, FOR YOU ARE A HOLY PEOPLE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.  THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

THE LORD DID NOT SET HIS LOVE UPON YOU NOR CHOOSE YOU BECAUSE YOU WERE MORE IN NUMBER THAN ANY PEOPLE, FOR YOU WERE THE FEWEST OF ALL PEOPLE.

BUT BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED YOU, AND BECAUSE HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE HAD SWORN TO YOUR FATHERS, HAS THE LORD BROUGHT YOU OUT WITH A MIGHTY HAND AND DELIVERED YOU AND RESCUED YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE OF SLAVERY FROM THE HAND OF PHARAOH KING OF EGYPT.

KNOW THEREFORE, GOD SAID, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD, HE IS GOD, THE FAITHFUL GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND MERCY WITH THEM WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.

GOD’S COVENANT IS HIS WORD SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE THAT IS LAW THAT GOD KEEPS, ALONG WITH HIS MERCY TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM, TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.  THAT IS FOREVER.

AND GOD REPAYS THEM WHO HATE HIM TO THEIR FACE, TO DESTROY THEM.  HE WILL NOT BE SLACK TO HIM WHO HATES HIM.  GOD WILL REPAY HIM TO HIS FACE.

THEREFORE GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS AND THE STATUTES AND THE JUDGMENTS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY TO DO.  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS ARE HIS LAWS AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND IT SHALL BE, GOD SAYS, BECAUSE YOU OBEY THESE JUDGMENTS, GOD’S LAWS, AND KEEP, AND DO THEM, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SHALL KEEP TO YOU THE COVENANT AND THE MERCY THAT HE SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS.

AND HE WILL LOVE YOU, AND BLESS YOU, AND MULTIPLY YOU.  HE WILL ALSO BLESS THE FRUIT OF YOUR WOMB, AND THE FRUIT OF YOUR LAND, YOUR GRAIN, AND YOUR WINE, AND YOUR OIL, THE INCREASE OF YOUR CATTLE, AND THE FLOCKS OF YOUR SHEEP IN THE LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS TO GIVE YOU.

YOU SHALL BE BLESSED ABOVE ALL PEOPLE.  THERE SHALL NOT BE MALE OR FEMALE BARREN AMONG YOU, OR AMONG YOUR CATTLE.

AND THE LORD WILL TAKE AWAY FROM YOU ALL SICKNESS, AND PUT NONE OF THE EVIL DISEASES OF EGYPT WHICH YOU KNOW, UPON YOU.  BUT HE WILL LAY THEM UPON ALL THAT HATE YOU.

FOR YOU ARE MY WITNESSES SAITH THE LORD, AND MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN THAT YOU SHALL KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM HE.  BEFORE ME THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE AFTER ME.

I, I AM THE LORD, AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15, PSALM 105.8-10, ISAIAH 43.10-11

GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE HE LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BRING HIS SPOKEN WORD, THE WORD OF GOD, TO THE WORLD THAT HE LOVES, BY WRITING THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

BUT IF GOD ALLOWED THE NATIONS TO WIPE OUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH AS SO MANY HAVE TRIED, THERE WOULD BE NO BIBLE, NO MESSIAH, AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WOULD HAVE DISAPPEARED FOREVER.  A TRAGEDY BECAUSE THERE IS NO RELIGION IN THE WORLD OTHER THAN JUDAISM THAT TEACHES THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT THEIR LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS, ARE WRITTEN BY MEN, NOT GOD.

2 PETER 3.16

BUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ERRED ALSO.  RATHER THAN TEACH THE PURE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE WRITTEN WHICH HAS THE TORAH THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, AND THE PROPHETS, AND THE WRITINGS, AND THE NEW TESTAMENT, JUDAISM TEACHES TALMUD, RABBINIC LAW THAT HAS TORAH WRITTEN IN IT, BUT IS OVERWHELMED WITH RABBINIC LAW.

GOD NEVER COMMANDED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE TAUGHT RABBINIC LAW.  GOD COMMANDS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL HUMANITY TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LEVITICUS 10.10-11, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THAT IS THE REASON MESSIAH YESHUA HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE PHARISEES.  NOT BECAUSE HE HATED THEM.  ABSOLUTELY NOT, BUT BECAUSE THE PHARISEES TAUGHT TALMUD, RABBINIC LAW TO HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE RATHER THAN PURE TORAH THAT CONTAINS THE PURE WORD OF GOD.  AND RABBINIC LAW, THAT IS JEWISH LAW, IS TAUGHT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD RATHER THAN THE PURE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  AND THE BIBLE INCLUDES THE NEW TESTAMENT.

BUT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR EVERY NON JEWISH PERSON TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO BE FULLY PART OF GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.  NOT BY BECOMING JEWISH, BUT BY LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  FOR MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, IT IS WRITTEN, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

DEUTERONOMY 20.2-4  AND GOD, SPEAKING THROUGH HIS JEWISH PROPHET MOSES, SAID, AND IT SHALL BE WHEN YOU COME NEAR TO THE BATTLE, THAT THE PRIEST SHALL APPROACH AND SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE,

AND HE SHALL SAY TO THEM, HEAR O ISRAEL, YOU APPROACH THIS DAY TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES.  LET NOT YOUR HEARTS FAINT.  FEAR NOT, AND DO NOT TREMBLE, NEITHER BE TERRIFIED BECAUSE OF THEM.

FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS HE THAT GOES WITH YOU TO FIGHT FOR YOU AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES TO SAVE YOU.

GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  THAT IS TO SAY, THE SPIRIT OF GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  AND THERE IS NO BEGINNING OR END TO THE HEAVENS WHICH ARE THE TOTALITY OF SPACE.

AND SINCE THE SPIRIT OF GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, GOD IS, AND CAN BE IN MANY DIFFERENT PLACES AT THE SAME TIME IN HUMAN FORM.  GOD IS MELCHIZEDEK, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  GOD IS YEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE SON OF GOD.  AND GOD IS THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD.  AND IN SPIRIT, GOD IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  AND AS A HUMAN BEING, GOD IS MESSIAH YESHUA, AND GOD ALMIGHTY, AND GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER IN HEAVEN.  AND GOD IS THE SAVIOR.

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  ALL ARE ELOHIM.  ELOHIM IN HEBREW MEANS GODS, YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY, AND SO MUCH MORE.  HE IS ELOHIM. 

ISAIAH 43.10-11, HEBREWS 7.1-3

GOD SAID THROUGH HIS PROPHET MOSES, THE SECRET THINGS BELONG TO THE LORD OUR GOD, BUT THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE REVEALED BELONG TO US, AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOREVER, THAT WE ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW.  THAT IS, WE ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW OF MOSES.

EVERYTHING GOD DOES IS A MIRACLE.  SPEAKING THE CREATION INTO EXISTENCE, CREATING LIFE.  RAISING THE DEAD, HEALING THE SICK.  GUIDING THE PATH OF EVERY HUMAN BEING AND EVERY LIVING THING.  THE SECRET THINGS BELONG TO THE LORD OUR GOD BUT THE THINGS THAT ARE REVEALED BELONG TO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOREVER THAT WE ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW OF MOSES.

BUT YET THE WORLD IGNORES GOD AND DOES NOT LIVE BY HIS LAWS AND TEACHINGS, AND WORD, WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND FOR THE MOST PART IN THIS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE ARE TAUGHT THAT ALL THE WORDS OF THE LAW OF MOSES ARE ABOLISHED.  AND WE WONDER WHY THIS COUNTRY HAS SO MANY PROBLEMS, AS DOES THE REST OF THE WORLD FOR DISOBEYING GOD.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.28, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.29, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JEREMIAH 23.24, MATTHEW 18.10, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

DEUTERONOMY 20.5-9 AND THE OFFICERS SHALL SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE, SAYING, WHAT MAN IS THERE THAT HAS BUILT A NEW HOUSE, AND HAS NOT DEDICATED IT?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE, LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE, AND ANOTHER MAN DEDICATE IT.

AND WHAT MAN IS HE THAT HAS PLANTED A VINEYARD, AND HAS NOT EATEN OF IT?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE AND ANOTHER MAN EAT OF IT.

AND WHAT MAN IS THERE THAT IS ENGAGED TO A WOMAN AND NOT MARRIED TO HER?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE AND ANOTHER MAN TAKE HER.

AND THE OFFICERS SHALL SPEAK FURTHER TO THE PEOPLE, AND SAY TO THEM, WHO IS THE MAN WHO IS AFRAID AND FAINT OF HEART?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HIS BROTHER’S HEART FAINTS AS WELL AS HIS HEART.

AND IT SHALL BE WHEN THE OFFICERS HAVE FINISHED SPEAKING TO THE PEOPLE THAT THEY SHALL MAKE CAPTAINS OF THE ARMIES TO LEAD THE PEOPLE.

SO NOW ISRAEL HAS AN ARMY WITHOUT MEN WHO RECENTLY BUILT A NEW HOUSE BUD DID NOT DEDICATE IT, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO RECENTLY PLANTED A VINEYARD BUT HAVE NOT EATEN OF IT, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO WERE RECENTLY ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO ARE AFRAID AND FAINTHEARTED.

BUT THE ARMY OF ISRAEL HAS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GOES WITH THEM TO FIGHT AGAINST THEIR ENEMY TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE.

DEUTERONOMY 20.10-18  AND MOSES SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE THE WORDS OF GOD, SAYING, WHEN YOU COME NEAR TO A CITY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT, THEN YOU SHALL CALL OUT TO IT FOR PEACE.

AND IF THEY ANSWER YOU, AND THEY SEEK PEACE, AND THEY OPEN THE CITY TO YOU, THEN IT SHALL BE THAT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE FOUND IN THAT CITY SHALL BE LABORERS FOR YOU, AND THEY SHALL SERVE YOU.

BUT IF THEY WILL NOT MAKE PEACE WITH YOU, BUT WILL MAKE WAR AGAINST YOU, THEN YOU SHALL LAY SIEGE TO IT AND SURROUND THE CITY, AND ATTACK IT.

AND WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS DELIVERED THE CITY INTO YOUR HANDS, YOU SHALL KILL EVERY MALE OF THE CITY WITH THE EDGE OF THE SWORD.

ISRAEL IS NOT DOING TODAY WHAT GOD COMMANDS IN THIS PASSAGE, BUT WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH RETURNS, HE BY HIMSELF WILL CARRY OUT HIS WORDS.  ZECHARIAH 14.12

BUT THE WOMEN, AND THE LITTLE ONES, AND THE CATTLE, AND ALL THAT ARE IN THE CITY, EVEN ALL THE SPOIL OF IT, YOU SHALL TAKE FOR YOURSELF, AND YOU SHALL EAT THE SPOIL OF YOUR ENEMIES WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.

SO SHALL YOU DO TO ALL THE CITIES THAT ARE VERY FAR OFF FROM YOU WHICH ARE NOT OF THESE CANAANITE NATIONS.

BUT OF THE CITIES OF THESE PEOPLE WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES TO YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, YOU SHALL NOT KEEP ALIVE ANYTHING THAT BREATHES.

BUT YOU SHALL UTTERLY DESTROY THEM, THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, THE CANAANITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE, AS THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS COMMANDED YOU.

SO THEY WILL NOT TEACH YOU TO DO AFTER ALL THEIR ABOMINATIONS WHICH THEY HAVE DONE FOR THEIR gods, AND YOU WOULD SIN AGAINST THE LORD YOUR GOD.

THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED ARE AN ABOMINATION.  THEY SIN AGAINST MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. 

1 JOHN 3.4-10, REVELATION 3.10, ISAIAH 24.4-6

1 JOHN 3.4-6  THOSE WHO SIN, THOSE WHO TRANSGRESS THE LAW OF MOSES, DO NOT KNOW GOD. 

DEUTERONOMY 20.19-20  WHEN YOU SHALL BESIEGE A CITY MANY DAYS, TO WAGE WAR AGAINST IT TO SEIZE IT, YOU SHALL NOT DESTROY ITS TREES BY FORCING AN AXE AGAINST THEM, FOR YOU MAY EAT OF THEM.  AND YOU SHALL NOT CUT THEM DOWN, FOR IS THE TREE OF THE FIELD A MAN THAT IT SHOULD BE BESIEGED OF YOU?

ONLY THE TREE THAT YOU KNOW IS NOT A TREE FOR FOOD, THAT YOU MAY DESTROY AND CUT DOWN, AND YOU MAY BUILD SIEGE-WORKS AGAINST THE CITY THAT MAKES WAR WITH YOU UNTIL IT IS SUBDUED.

SO HOW TO SUMMARIZE THIS TEACHING?

KNOW THAT GOD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS, IN WAR, IN PEACE, AND EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU ARE DOING ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS WRITTEN IN IT.

Shalom,

GOD’S LAWS FOR THE MURDERER, THE INNOCENT, AND THE TESTIMONY AND INTEGRITY OF WITNESSES.

Shalom,

Our studies in Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 19.1-21.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR THE MURDERER, THE INNOCENT, AND THE TESTIMONY AND INTEGRITY OF WITNESSES.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 19.1-21.

DEUTERONOMY 19.1-2  WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CUT OFF THE NATIONS WHOSE LAND THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU, AND YOU REPLACE THEM, AND DWELL IN THEIR CITIES AND IN THEIR HOUSES,

YOU SHALL SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR YOURSELVES IN THE CENTER OF THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS.

THESE BIBLICAL WORDS FROM THE PROPHET MOSES WERE WRITTEN SOME 3,400 YEARS AGO THAT FULFILLS THE PROMISE THAT GOD MADE WITH ABRAHAM TO GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO HIM AND HIS JEWISH DESCENDANTS FOREVER.  GENESIS 13.12-18

YET THE WORLD IS LIED TO DAILY.  THE WORLD IS TOLD THAT THE WEST BANK, KNOWN IN ISRAEL AS JUDEA AND SAMARIA ARE HELD UNDER ISRAELI MILITARY OCCUPATION.  BUT THE WEST BANK IS JEWISH LAND IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL, AND HAS BEEN JEWISH LAND FOR 3,400 YEARS.

WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DESCRIBES THE WORD OCCUPATION AS SEIZURE AND CONTROL OF AN AREA BY MILITARY FORCES.  ESPECIALLY A FOREIGN TERRITORY.

JUDEA AND SAMARIA, THE WEST BANK, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF ISRAEL, AS NORTH CAROLINA IS PART OF THE UNITED STATES, AND NEVER FOREIGN TERRITORY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  HOWEVER THE WEST BANK IS FOREIGN TERRITORY TO THE PALESTINIAN ARABS, AND OCCUPIED BY PALESTINIAN ARABS.

LIKE ALL GOD’S CREATION, THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS TO GOD, AND GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.  AND OFTEN REPEATED BY THE LORD THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE AS WRITTEN HERE IN DEUTERONOMY 19.1 THAT READS, “WHOSE LAND THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU,” THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

4,000 YEARS AGO, GOD PROMISED ABRAHAM THAT HE WOULD GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.  AND 600 YEARS LATER, GOD COMMANDED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO CONQUER AND POSSESS THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR THEIR INHERITANCE TO BECOME THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH HOMELAND FOR AS LONG AS THE EARTH REMAINS.

GENESIS 15.18-21, GENESIS 17.8, LEVITICUS 25.23

Webster’s Dictionary describes RELIGION as, The service and worship of GOD, or the supernatural.  And a personal set and institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices.

IN OTHER WORDS, A RELIGION IS BELIEF IN GOD, AND ITS RULES ARE MADE BY PEOPLE.

AS COMPARED TO THE BIBLE THAT IS NOT A RELIGION BUT A WAY TO LEARN ABOUT GOD, TO KNOW GOD, BELIEVE IN GOD, WHOSE RULES ARE MADE BY GOD, AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD

MY POINT IS THIS.  MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE IN GOD, AND MANY READ THE BIBLE.  THEREFORE THEY SHOULD BELIEVE GOD THAT HE HAS GIVEN ALL THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THAT INCLUDES THE WEST BANK, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER, RATHER THAN BELIEVE LIES ABOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  GENESIS 12.3

THE JEWISH PEOPLE DO NOT OCCUPY ISRAEL NOR DO THEY OCCUPY THE WEST BANK.  ALL ISRAEL, THAT INCLUDES THE WEST BANK, IS THE HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.

IT IS THE PALESTINIAN ARABS WHO OCCUPY LAND IN ISRAEL IN THE WEST BANK THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.  AND THE PALESTINIANS SEEK TO KILL THE JEWS AND OCCUPY ALL ISRAEL.  SEE THE ACTIONS OF HAMAS, HEZBULLAH, AND THE PLO, AND KNOW THEIR CHARTER.

THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, EVER.  WHY?   BECAUSE GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE PALESTINIAN ARABS WERE A PEOPLE, “AND I WILL GIVE TO YOU AND TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU THE LAND WHEREIN YOU ARE A STRANGER, ALL THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.”

ABRAHAM’S DESCENDANTS ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO DESCEND FROM ABRAHAM AND ISAAC. 

GENESIS 21.12

AND YES, GOD DOES HAVE BORDERS FOR THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  DEUTERONOMY 32.8

AND THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL CONTINUE TO LOSE MEN AND WOMEN AND BLOOD BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO GOD, NOR WILL THEY DO WHAT GOD SAYS, THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.

AND WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS, AND IT MAY NOT BE ALL THAT FAR OFF, HE WILL ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM IN THE ORIGINAL BORDERS OF ISRAEL FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER FOR THE WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, AND HIS HOLY ONES, WHOSE KINGDOM IS AN EVERLASTING KINGDOM, AND ALL DOMINIONS SHALL SERVE AND OBEY HIM.

GENESIS 15.18-21, DANIEL 7.27, ZECHARIAH 14

SO, DEUTERONOMY 19.1-3 READS, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CUT OFF THE NATIONS, THAT IS, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD DESTROYS THE KENITES, THE KENNIZITES, THE KADMONITES, THE HITTITES, THE PERIZZITES, THE REPHAIM, THE AMORITES, THE CANAANITES, THE GIRGASHITES, AND THE JEBUSITES, AND GIVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE THEIR CITIES, AND THEIR HOMES, AND YOU LIVE IN THEM, AND REPLACE THEM, YOU SHALL SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR YOURSELVES IN THE CENTER OF THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO INHERIT, THAT EVERY SLAYER OF A HUMAN BEING MAY FLEE THERE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.4-6  AND GOD SAYS, THIS IS THE CASE OF ONE WHO KILLED A PERSON AND FLEES THERE TO THE CITY OF REFUGE, AND SHALL LIVE.  THE PERSON WHO KILLS SOMEONE BY ACCIDENT, WITH NO INTENT WHOM HE DID NOT HATE IN TIME PAST.

FOR INSTANCE, THE LORD GOD SAYS, A MAN GOES INTO THE WOODS WITH SOMEONE TO CUT WOOD, AND HIS HAND SWINGS AN AXE TO CUT A TREE, AND THE AXE HEAD SLIPS OFF ITS HANDLE AND HITS HIS FRIEND, AND KILLS HIM.  THAT MAN SHALL FLEE TO ONE OF THOSE CITIES AND LIVE, LEST THE AVENGER OF BLOOD WHO SEEKS TO TAKE VENGEANCE FOR THE KILLING PURSUES THE KILLER IN THE HEAT OF HIS ANGER, AND OVERTAKES HIM BECAUSE THE WAY IS LONG, AND KILLS HIM.  YET THERE WAS NO DEATH PENALTY, NO SENTENCE OF DEATH BECAUSE THE SLAYER DID NOT HATE HIM, NOR WAS HE AN ENEMY BEFORE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.7-9  SO GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR THEMSELVES.  AND IF THE LORD GOD ENLARGES YOUR BORDERS AS HE HAS SWORN TO YOUR FATHERS, AND GIVES YOU ALL THE LAND WHICH HE HAS PROMISED YOUR FATHERS,

IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS.  THAT IS, IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, TO DO THEM WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU THIS DAY, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND WALK IN HIS WAYS FOREVER, THEN YOU SHALL ADD THREE MORE CITIES BESIDE THESE THREE.

THESE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT.  IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS TO SAY, IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, TO DO THEM WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU THIS DAY, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND WALK IN HIS WAYS FOREVER, AND AS DEUTERONOMY 28.1 AND 2 READ, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL SET YOU ON HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH, AND ALL THESE BLESSINGS SHALL COME ON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU, IF YOU WILL OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND DEUTERONOMY 28.15 READS, BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF YOU WILL NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, TO OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS, ALL HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY, ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU.

THE BIBLE TEACHES YOU TO LEARN ABOUT GOD, TO KNOW GOD, AND BELIEVE IN GOD, WHOSE RULES ARE MADE BY GOD.  AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT IF YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, YOU WILL INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD.

MATTHEW 26.28  

BUT IF YOU LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW GOD, WHO TEACH YOU TO DISOBEY GOD BY DISOBEYING GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, YOU WILL NOT INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD, BUT AS GOD SAYS IN DEUTERONOMY 28.15, ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU.

1 JOHN 3.4-10, MATTHEW 7.21-23

BUT GOD BLESSES THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  

GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

It’s interesting to note that the three times THE GOD OF ISRAEL exiled His Jewish People out of The Land of Israel into captivity in 586 B.C.E./B.C., 722 B.C.E./B.C., and 70 C.E./A.D., was because of sin, disobeying GOD.  Not obeying THE LAW OF MOSES which is The Spoken Word of GOD

GOD exiled The Jewish People out of Israel in 70 C.E./A.D. because they rejected Their Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  They should have known the time of His coming, Messiah said.

DANIEL 9.20-26, LUKE 19.41-44, 1 JOHN 3.4

So many people, Messianic Jews and Christians are taught the huge lie that because you believe in Yeshua The Messiah / Jesus Christ, you are free from obeying The Law of Moses.  You are saved by grace, and you don’t have to obey The Law of Moses, you are taught.  You have been taught a lie.  A very serious lie.

GOD Chose The Jewish People by an act of grace to be His Chosen People.  We did not do anything to be GOD’S Chosen People.  But yet GOD not only Chose The Jewish People, GOD Commands His Chosen People to always Obey Torah, His Law of Moses.

For Messianic Jews and Gentiles to be fully part of GOD’S Chosen People, along with your belief in Messiah Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you best obey The Law of Moses also. 

Obedience to Torah, The Law of Moses is Commanded by GOD throughout The Bible.

What does Paul say? Is GOD The GOD of The Jews only?  Is He not also The GOD of The Gentiles?  Yes, of The Gentiles also.

DEUTERONOMY 28, LUKE 8.21, ROMANS 3.29, 31

The sooner people realize that, the better off they will be in the end, because The Spoken Word of GOD that Jewish People recorded in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses is for all mankind, Jews and Gentiles to obey.

THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE MUST ALWAYS HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE TEACHINGS OF YOUR BIBLE TEACHERS. 

MATTHEW 5.17  YESHUA THE MESSIAH / JESUS CHRIST SAID, DO NOT THINK THAT I HAVE COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS.  I HAVE NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFIL. 

TO FULFIL THE PROPHESIES CONCERNING THE JEWISH MESSIAH.

JOHN 14.9  YESHUA / JESUS SAID, HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER.

SO IF GOD CAST OUT HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMELAND ISRAEL THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, WILL GOD NOT ALSO PUNISH THOSE WHO DISOBEY HIM ACCORDING TO HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE?

DEUTERONOMY 18.19, ISAIAH 24.5-6

BACK TO DEUTERONOMY 19.10  THEREFORE, THE KILLER OF A PERSON BY MISTAKE, WITHOUT ANY INTENT OF MURDER CAN FLEE TO ONE OF THESE CITIES OF REFUGE BECAUSE HE IS INNOCENT AND NO BLOOD SHALL BE UPON HIM.

DEUTERONOMY 19.11-12  BUT IF A PERSON HATES SOMEONE, AND LIES IN WAIT FOR THAT PERSON, AND KILLS HIM, AND ESCAPES TO ONE OF THESE CITIES OF REFUGE, THEN THE ELDERS OF HIS CITY SHALL BRING HIM BACK FROM THE CITY OF REFUGE AND DELIVER HIM INTO THE HAND OF THE ONE WHO WILL EXACT RETRIBUTION FOR THE MURDER THAT HE SHALL DIE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.13  NO ONE SHALL PITY THE MURDERER, BUT YOU SHALL PUT AWAY THE GUILT OF INNOCENT BLOOD FROM ISRAEL THAT IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

THAT IS BIBLICAL TEACHING.  OBEY WHAT GOD SAYS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION AND IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 19.14  THIS IS LAW.  JEWISH PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS SET UP LANDMARKS IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  LANDMARKS ARE BOUNDARY MARKERS.  GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL NOT REMOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR’S LANDMARK WHICH WAS SET UP IN TIME PAST IN YOUR INHERITANCE WHICH YOU SHALL INHERIT IN THE LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS IT.

DEUTERONOMY 19.15  ONE WITNESS IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO CONVICT A PERSON OF ANY OFFENSE OR SIN.  BUT THE MATTER IS ESTABLISHED ONLY IF THERE ARE TWO OR THREE WITNESSES TESTIFYING AGAINST HIM.

DEUTERONOMY 19.16-19  IF A FALSE WITNESS COMES FORWARD AND LIES IN TESTIMONY AGAINST ANYONE, THEN BOTH WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE CONTROVERSY SHALL STAND BEFORE THE LORD, BEFORE THE PRIESTS, AND THE JUDGES, WHICH SHALL BE IN THOSE DAYS.  AND THE JUDGES SHALL MAKE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION.  AND IF THE WITNESS IS A FALSE WITNESS WHO LIES IN HIS TESTIMONY AGAINST HIS BROTHER, THEN THEY SHALL DO TO HIM AS HE SCHEMED TO DO TO HIS BROTHER.  SO SHALL YOU PUT THE EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 19.21  AND YOU SHALL NOT PITY THE CONVICTED PERSON.  AND THIS IS HOW YOU SHALL JUDGE THE GUILTY; LIFE FOR LIFE, EYE FOR EYE, TOOTH FOR TOOTH, HAND FOR HAND, FOOT FOR FOOT.

SO, IN SUMMARY, IF YOU WILL DILIGENTLY OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE AND DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL SET YOU ON HIGH ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, AND ALL GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU, IF YOU WILL OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, HIS SPOKEN WORDS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME. TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 18.15-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME.  TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 18.15-22.

Let’s take these Verses line upon line and study what GOD told His Prophet Moses to tell The Jewish People, and all the world through The Bible.

DEUTERONOMY 18.15  THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME.  TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

TO START WITH, THIS PROPHET WHOM MOSES PROPHESIES THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP FROM AMONG THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WILL BE JEWISH LIKE MOSES WHO IS JEWISH.

NOW, THIS JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD WILL RAISE UP TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE IS UNIQUE BECAUSE ALL PROPHETS OF GOD ARE APPOINTED BY GOD AFTER THEY ARE BORN.  BUT THIS IS THE ONLY PROPHET WHO IS PROPHESIED TO BE RAISED UP BY GOD AT A FUTURE TIME.

SO NOT ONLY IS THIS PROPHET JEWISH LIKE MOSES, THIS UNIQUE PROPHET IS A DELIVERER LIKE MOSES.

AS MOSES DELIVERED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY AND DEATH IN EGYPT, LED BY THE HAND OF GOD, THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET DELIVERS FROM SIN AND DEATH.

MOSES WAS A GREAT PROPHET WHOM THE LORD KNEW FACE TO FACE.  AND MOSES PROPHESIED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOU OF YOUR BROTHERS WHO WILL BE LIKE ME, LIKE MOSES.  AND TO THIS PROPHET, YOU SHALL OBEY.

JEWISH PEOPLE SAY, MAHSHIAKH IS COMING.  MESSIAH IS COMING.  WELL, 1,300 YEARS AFTER MOSES SPOKE THIS PROPHESY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD RAISED UP THAT UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET.  AND HE IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH.  THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

AND THIS JEWISH PROPHET PROPHESIED BY MOSES TO BE RAISED UP BY THE LORD GOD TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL PROPHETS BECAUSE HE IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE JEWISH MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, ELOHIM, AND SO MUCH MORE; ALL IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA, THE GREATEST OF ALL PROPHETS.

BESIDES THE NUMEROUS MIRACLES THAT THIS UNIQUE PROPHET DID THAT CAN ONLY BE DONE BY ALMIGHTY GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA ALSO PROPHESIED OF HIS DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION.  THAT HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD WOULD BE FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  AND HE PROPHESIED OF HIS RETURN AND THE END OF THE WORLD.

EXODUS 33.11, DEUTERONOMY 18.15, 18, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, MATTHEW 24.1-44, MATTHEW 26.28, LUKE 9.22,

MOSES WAS THE LAWGIVER WHO RECEIVED FROM GOD THE LAWS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND GAVE THEM TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND ALL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE LAWGIVER.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GAVE HIS LAWS TO MOSES FOR ISRAEL AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY.

MOSES DID MIRACLES SUCH AS LEADING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO THE PROMISED LAND BY THE HAND OF GOD, AND BRINGING WATER FROM A ROCK.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, NOT ONLY DOES MIRACLES, HE IS THE SOURCE OF ALL MIRACLES BECAUSE HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM.  EXODUS 17.6

MOSES NEVER REFERRED TO HIMSELF AS THE KING OF ISRAEL, THOUGH IN HIS DAY, MOSES WAS LIKE THE KING OF ISRAEL WHILE LEADING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FOR FORTY YEARS FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN.  BUT THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE KING OF ISRAEL.

ISAIAH 43.15, ISAIAH 44.6, JOHN 12.12-13

MOSES WAS OBEDIENT TO GOD.  HE OBEYED EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE.  BUT MOSES DID FALL FROM TIME TO TIME.  HOWEVER THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES NEVER SINNED BECAUSE HE OBEYED EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4 

MOSES WAS MEEK ABOVE ALL THE MEN THAT WERE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.  THE JEWISH PROPHET THAT GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, MESSIAH YESHUA, WAS MEEK UNTO DEATH.

NUMBERS 12.3, ISAIAH 42.1-4, ISAIAH 53, MATTHEW 12.15-21

MOSES SPOKE AS GOD WHEN HE AND HIS BROTHER AARON SPOKE TO PHARAOH.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.

EXODUS 4.14-16, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6

MOSES TAUGHT TORAH, GOD’S LAWS CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, BRINGS FORTH JUDGMENT TO THE GENTILES.  THAT IS, MESSIAH YESHUA BRINGS FORTH GOD’S LAWS TO THE GENTILES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THROUGH HIS SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

ISAIAH 42.1, MATTHEW 12.18

DEUTERONOMY 18.15-18  SO MOSES SAID TO THE PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST WHAT YOU ASKED OF THE LORD YOUR GOD IN HOREB, THAT IS, IN MOUNT SINAI, WHEN THE LORD GAVE US THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN THE DAY WHEN ALL ISRAEL ASSEMBLED AT THE BOTTOM OF MOUNT SINAI.  AND YOU SAID, DO NOT LET ME HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD MY GOD AGAIN, NEITHER LET ME SEE THIS GREAT FIRE ANY MORE SO THAT I WILL NOT DIE.

AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, THEY HAVE WELL SPOKEN THAT WHICH THEY HAVE SPOKEN.

AND AGAIN, MOSES SAID TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHAT GOD TOLD HIM; THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE YOU, LIKE MOSES, AND I WILL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH, AND HE SHALL SPEAK TO THEM ALL THAT I SHALL COMMAND HIM.

THE WORDS THAT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, SPEAKS ARE WORDS THAT GOD PUT IN HIS MOUTH TO SPEAK.  EVERY WORD MESSIAH SPEAKS IS THE WORD OF GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.  THEY ARE WORDS THAT GOD COMMANDS THE MESSIAH YESHUA TO SPEAK TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO ALL THE WORLD.  FOR THE BIBLE SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE. 

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS TO BE OBEYED BY ALL MANKIND.

EXODUS 20.18-20, DEUTERONOMY 5.22-29, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

DEUTERONOMY 18.19  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, OR TRANSLATED FROM THE HEBREW, VAY’HAH’YAH, AND IT SHALL BE, THAT WHATEVER MAN, OR WHATEVER PERSON WILL NOT OBEY MY WORDS WHICH HE SHALL SPEAK IN MY NAME, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM.

NOW, WHAT DOES GOD MEAN WHEN HE SAYS, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM?

SOME JEWISH BIBLES TRANSLATE THE WORDS, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM, TO MEAN, HE OR SHE WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR HIMSELF TO ME, OR, I WILL EXACT FROM HIM, OR, I MYSELF WILL CALL HIM TO ACCOUNT.

WHATEVER THE EXACT WORDS ARE THAT GOD SPOKE TO MOSES, TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM, IS VERY SERIOUS.  BECAUSE NOT OBEYING GOD, NOT OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE IS A SERIOUS WRONG.  FOR GOD WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM OR HER.

MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 4.17, EZEKIEL 18.21, 1 JOHN 3.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LUKE 4.4, MATTHEW 5.17-20, 48, MATTHEW 13.23, MATTHEW 17.5, MATTHEW 24.35, MATTHEW 25.46

MATTHEW 5.17  MESSIAH YESHUA DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS.  

MATTHEW 17.5  THE WORD, HEAR, COMES FROM THE HEBREW, SHEMA, MEANING OBEY.  OBEY HIM.

MATTHEW 25.46  RIGHTEOUS IN HEBREW STAH’DEEK MEANING LAWFUL, OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  ALSO BLESSING JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL IS RIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

THEREFORE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP LIKE MOSES FROM THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS YESHUA THE MESSIAH, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE EVERLASTING FATHER.

JOHN 6.14, JOHN 7.37-40, ACTS 3.22-23, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6

THERE IS ONLY ONE BIBLE.  IT IS NOT DIVIDED INTO TWO SECTIONS, THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.  THOSE ARE MAN MADE NAMES.  THE BIBLE IS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  THAT IS THE BIBLE.

MESSIAH SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

THE NEW COVENANT IS MESSIAH YESHUA.  HE IS THE NEW COVENANT WHO REPLACED THE OLD COVENANT OF THE ANIMAL SACRIFICE FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS BY HIS SHED BLOOD WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.

MESSIAH DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DID HE COME TO PROCLAIM HIMSELF THE SECOND GOD IN THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, HA SHEM ELOHIM.  AND HE CAME, AS HE SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, TO BE THE NEW COVENANT WHOSE BLOOD HE SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

ISAIAH PROPHESIES THAT THE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS THE SERVANT OF GOD, ALSO CAME TO BRING FORTH JUDGMENT TO THE GENTILES.  THAT IS, MESSIAH SHALL BRING FORTH THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE GENTILES THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

ISAIAH 42.1, MATTHEW 12.18

ISAIAH 42.1 THE WORD JUDGMENT IN HEBREW IS MEESH’PAHT MEANING GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, COLLECTIVELY ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES THAT MESSIAH YESHUA BRINGS TO THE GENTILES FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO SAID IN GENESIS 1.1, IN THE BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

TO REPEAT, MESSIAH YESHUA DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DID HE COME TO DESTROY THE PROPHETS, NOR DID HE COME TO SUPPLANT THE OLD TESTAMENT.  NOR DID HE COME AS ANOTHER GOD, BECAUSE MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD, THE ALMIGHTY GOD.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FULFILLMENT OF MOSES’ PROPHESY, THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES, TO FORGIVE THE SINS OF MANY.  TO BRING THE GENTILES GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND TO BE KILLED ON A STAKE IN JERUSALEM, AND TO DIE AND SHED HIS BLOOD AS A HUMAN BEING FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 1.1-2 ff, MATTHEW 5.17, MATTHEW 12.17-18, MATTHEW 26.27-28

DEUTERONOMY 18.20  BUT THE PROPHET WHO SHALL PRESUME TO SPEAK A WORD IN MY NAME WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED HIM TO SPEAK, OR THAT SHALL SPEAK IN THE NAME OF OTHER gods, EVEN THAT PROPHET SHALL DIE.

NO NEED FOR EXPLANATION.

DEUTERONOMY 18.21-22  AND IF YOU SAY IN YOUR HEART, HOW SHALL WE KNOW THE WORD WHICH THE LORD HAS NOT SPOKEN?

WHEN A PROPHET SPEAKS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IF THE THING DOES NOT COME TRUE, NOR COME TO PASS, THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HAS NOT SPOKEN.  BUT THE PROPHET HAS SPOKEN IT ARROGANTLY.  YOU SHALL NOT BE AFRAID OF HIM.

AGAIN, NO EXPLANATION NEEDED.

SO IN SUMMARY, THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES IS MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GLORY OF GOD, MECHIZEDEK, THE GOD OF CREATION, ELOHIM.  ALL ARE THE MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL.

THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS ALL THAT GOD IS BECAUSE THE JEWISH PROPHET MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  THAT IS THE UNSEARCHABLE GREATNESS OF THE LORD OUR GOD WHO FILLS THE HEAVENS AND EARTH.

TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

PASSOVER AND ITS HISTORY

Shalom, and Happy Passover.

Our message this morning will come from Genesis 15.1-21.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, PASSOVER AND ITS HISTORY.

And with that said, let’s read Genesis 15.1-21

Genesis Chapter 15 goes back in history about 4,000 years and has some staggering history written in it that gives us some insight as to why The LORD GOD gave The Jewish People Passover.

LET’S START WITH GENESIS 15.1  ABRAHAM’S ORIGINAL NAME WAS ABRAM, AND HIS NAME REMAINED ABRAM FOR 99 YEARS BEFORE GOD CHANGED HIS NAME TO ABRAHAM.

AFTER THE LORD TOOK ABRAHAM OUT OF THE GENTILES WHEN HE WAS 75 YEARS OLD TO BE THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THE FATHER OF MANY NATIONS, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM IN A VISION, FEAR NOT ABRAM, I AM YOUR SHIELD AND YOUR EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD.  WHICH TELLS ME THAT WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT AND YOU ARE LIKE ABRAHAM WHO BELIEVES IN THE LORD GOD, AND YOU OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS AS ABRAHAM DID, GOD IS YOUR SHIELD AND YOUR EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD.

GENESIS 26.5

AND CONTINUING WITH THIS STAGGERING EVENT IN HISTORY, GOD TOLD ABRAHAM IN THAT VISION THAT HE WOULD GIVE ABRAHAM “THIS LAND.”  “THIS LAND” WAS CANAAN WHERE ABRAHAM AND SARAH WERE LIVING AT THE TIME. 

GENESIS 12.1-6, GENESIS 15.7, GENESIS 17.1,5

SO ABRAHAM ASKED GOD, HOW WILL I KNOW THAT I WILL INHERIT THIS LAND?  AND GOD TOLD ABRAHAM, GET ME A THREE YEAR OLD HEIFER, AND A THREE YEAR OLD FEMALE GOAT, AND A THREE YEAR OLD RAM, AND A TURTLEDOVE AND A PIGEON.  AND ABRAHAM DID AS GOD SAID.  AND HE CUT THEM IN TWO, AND HE LAID EACH PIECE OPPOSITE THE OTHER, BUT HE DID NOT CUT THE BIRDS IN TWO. 

AND WHEN BIRDS OF PREY CAME DOWN UPON THE CARCASSES ABRAHAM DROVE THEM AWAY.  AND WHEN THE SUN WAS GOING DOWN, A DEEP SLEEP FELL UPON ABRAHAM, AND A HORROR OF GREAT DARKNESS FELL UPON HIM.

AND THESE ARE THE WORDS GOD SPOKE TO ABRAHAM THAT LEAD UP TO THE FIRST PASSOVER SOME 721 YEARS LATER. 

KNOW WITH CERTAINTY, GOD SAID, THAT YOUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE STRANGERS IN A LAND THAT IS NOT THEIRS.  THAT LAND, OF COURSE, WAS EGYPT.  AND THEY SHALL SERVE THEM, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.

AND ALSO, GOD SAID, THAT NATION WHOM THEY SHALL SERVE, I WILL JUDGE.  AND AFTERWARD THEY WILL COME OUT WITH GREAT WEALTH.  AND YOU SHALL GO TO YOUR FATHERS IN PEACE.  AND YOU SHALL BE BURIED IN A GOOD OLD AGE.  BUT IN THE FOURTH GENERATION, THAT IS TO SAY, AFTER FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, THEY SHALL COME HERE AGAIN, TO CANAAN.  FOR THE INIQUITY OF THE AMORITES IS NOT YET FULL.  THAT IS, THE SIN OF THE CANAANITE NATIONS WAS NOT COMPLETE AND BROUGHT TO AN END.

AMORITES IS A TERM FOR ALL THE CANAANITE NATIONS.

AND WHEN THE SUN WENT DOWN, AND IT WAS DARK, AND BEHOLD, A SMOKING FURNACE, AND A FLAMING TORCH OF FIRE PASSED BETWEEN THE ANIMAL PIECES.  THAT WAS GOD PASSING BETWEEN THE PIECES CONFIRMING THAT WHAT HE SAID TO ABRAHAM WILL SURELY HAPPEN.  AND IT DID HAPPEN.  EVERYTHING GOD SAYS WILL HAPPEN, HAPPENS.

AND IN THE SAME DAY THE LORD MADE A COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM.  THAT IS TO SAY, GOD PROMISED ABRAHAM, SAYING, UNTO YOUR DESCENDANTS HAVE I GIVEN THIS LAND FROM THE RIVER OF EGYPT TO THE GREAT RIVER, THE RIVER EUPHRATES, THE KENITE, AND THE KENIZZITE, AND THE KADMONITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE REPHAIM, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE CANAANITE, AND THE GIRGASHITE, AND THE JEBUSITE.

NOW IN TIME ABRAHAM AND SARAH HAD A SON, THEIR ONLY SON ISAAC.  AND ISAAC AND REBEKAH HAD TWINS, ESAU AND JACOB.  AND ONE OF JACOB’S AND HIS WIFE RACHEL’S SONS WAS JOSEPH.

YOU ALL KNOW THE STORY OF JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS.  JOSEPH’S BROTHERS HATED HIM AND WANTED TO KILL HIM BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THEIR FATHER JACOB FAVORED HIM ABOVE THEM.  SO JOSEPH’S BROTHERS TOSSED HIM INTO A DITCH WITHOUT WATER, AND WHILE THEY WERE DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH HIM, A GROUP OF MIDIANITE MERCHANTMEN CAME BY THE DITCH WITH JOSEPH IN IT AND PULLED HIM OUT AND SOLD HIM TO A GROUP OF ISHMEELITES FOR TWENTY PIECES OF SILVER.  AND THEY BROUGHT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT AND SOLD HIM.

GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM IS BEGINNING TO BE FULFILLED.  JOSEPH IS SOLD TO AN EGYPTIAN ARMY OFFICER.  THE OFFICER’S WIFE FAILS TO GET JOSEPH  IN BED SO THE WIFE HAS JOSEPH TOSSED INTO PRISON.  JOSEPH ENDS UP RUNNING THE PRISON, AND IN TIME INTERPRETS TWO DREAMS OF TWO EGYPTIAN PRISONERS.  THE DREAMS ARE INTERPRETED CORRECTLY.  ONE EGYPTIAN IS HANGED.  THE OTHER EGYPTIAN IS RETURNED TO HIS JOB WITH PHARAOH.

NOW PHARAOH HAD TWO DREAMS BUT NO ONE COULD INTERPRET THEM.  BUT THE EGYPTIAN WHO WAS RESTORED TO HIS JOB WITH PHARAOH TOLD THE KING ABOUT JOSEPH INTERPRETING HIS DREAM AND THE OTHER WHOM PHARAOH HUNG.  PHARAOH QUICKLY SUMMONED JOSEPH FROM PRISON TO INTERPRET HIS DREAMS, AND JOSEPH TOLD PHARAOH THAT IT IS GOD WHO INTERPRETS DREAMS. 

THE DREAMS PHARAOH HAD WERE ABOUT SEVEN YEARS OF GREAT AND PLENTY IN EGYPT AND JUST ABOUT ALL THE WORLD INCLUDING CANAAN WHERE THE FAMILY OF JOSEPH WAS.  AND THEN SEVEN YEARS OF HARD FAMINE IN EGYPT AND ALL THE COUNTRIES INCLUDING CANAAN.

SO PHARAOH NAMED JOSEPH THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT.  AND EVERYTHING JOSEPH SAID OF PHARAOH’S DREAMS CAME TRUE.  AND AFTER SEVEN YEARS OF GREAT AND PLENTY, CANAAN ALSO EXPERIENCED HARD FAMINE.  SO JACOB SENT HIS BOYS, TEN OF THEM TO EGYPT TO BUY FOOD.  YOU ALL KNOW THIS.  AND IN EGYPT, THEY BOW DOWN TO THEIR BROTHER JOSEPH WHOM THEY DO NOT RECOGNIZE, THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT.  BUT JOSEPH KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.

SO JOSEPH PROCEEDS TO DRIVE HIS BROTHERS NUTS CALLING THEM SPIES, PUTTING ONE OF HIS BROTHERS IN PRISON AND SENDING THEM BACK TO CANAAN LOADED WITH FOOD AND THE MONEY THEY BROUGHT TO BUY THE FOOD. 

AND TO RELEASE THEIR BROTHER FROM PRISON, JOSEPH, THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT, INSISTS ON SEEING THEIR YOUNGEST BROTHER. 

NOW JACOB, FEARING HE WOULD LOSE YET ANOTHER SON BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT DEMANDS TO SEE THEIR YOUNGEST BROTHER WHO WAS JOSEPH’S YOUNGER BROTHER, FINALLY AGREES TO SEND BENJAMIN TO EGYPT WITH HIS BROTHERS. 

SO THE BROTHERS RETURN TO EGYPT WITH BENJAMIN, AND JOSEPH BREAKS DOWN AND TELLS HIS BROTHERS WHO HE IS.  KISSING, AND HUGGING, AND WEEPING, AND TEARS.  AND AT JOSEPH’S INVITATION WITH PHARAOH’S APPROVAL, THE ENTIRE JEWISH FAMILY OF JACOB, SEVENTY PEOPLE, FOR JOSEPH WAS ALREADY IN EGYPT, LEAVE CANAAN AND MOVE DOWN TO EGYPT.

AFTER JOSEPH AND ALL HIS BROTHERS, AND ALL THAT GENERATION DIED, THE BIBLE SAYS, THERE AROSE A NEW KING OVER EGYPT WHO DID NOT KNOW JOSEPH.  AND ALL THE PHARAOHS AFTER JOSEPH PUT THE JEWS TO HARD SLAVERY THAT LASTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.  AS GOD PROPHESIED.

NOW, GOD HAD PROMISED ABRAHAM THAT HE WOULD MAKE OF HIM A GREAT NATION.  AND GOD FULFILLED THAT PROPHESY IN EGYPT.  THE JEWISH PEOPLE GREW FROM SEVENTY PEOPLE TO A POPULATION OF SOME THREE MILLION.  AND THESE THREE MILLION JEWS WANTED OUT OF EGYPT, AND OUT OF SLAVERY.

AND GOD DID JUST THAT CHOOSING MOSES WHOM HIS MOTHER HID FROM THE EGYPTIAN SLAUGHTER OF JEWISH BOYS.  WHEN MOSES WAS THREE MONTHS OLD HIS MOTHER PUT HIM IN A BASKET AND SENT THE BASKET WITH THE BABY MOSES IN IT DOWN A RIVER.  AND PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER WAS WASHING HERSELF IN THE RIVER AND SAW THE BASKET AND SENT HER SERVANT GIRL TO GET IT.  AND MOSES BECAME THE SON OF PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER.

BUT WHEN MOSES GREW INTO A MAN, HE KILLED AN EGYPTIAN WHEN HE SAW THE EGYPTIAN BEATING A JEWISH MAN.  AND IT WAS TOLD TO PHARAOH AND MOSES FLED TO MIDIAN, A COUNTRY OF JEWISH HERITAGE.  BECAUSE AFTER SARAH DIED, ABRAHAM MARRIED KETURAH WHO GAVE BIRTH TO CHILDREN THAT INCLUDED A SON, MIDIAN, WHO BECAME THE FATHER OF MIDIAN.  GENESIS 25.1-2

SO IN MIDIAN ON MOUNT SINAI, GOD IN THE PERSON OF THE ANGEL OF GOD APPEARED TO MOSES IN A FLAME OF FIRE OUT OF THE MIDST OF A BUSH THAT BURNED BUT DID NOT CONSUME.  SO IN HIS CURIOSITY, MOSES WENT TO THE BUSH, AND GOD CALLED TO MOSES OUT OF THE FLAME IN THE BUSH.  AND GOD TOLD MOSES, DO NOT COME NEAR.  TAKE OFF YOUR SANDALS FOR THE PLACE WHERE YOU STAND IS HOLY GROUND. 

AND GOD TOLD MOSES THAT HE WAS THE GOD OF HIS FATHER, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB.  AND MOSES HID HIS FACE FOR HE WAS AFRAID TO LOOK UPON GOD.

AND THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, I HAVE SEEN THE AFFLICTION OF MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE IN EGYPT, AND I HAVE HEARD THEIR CRY BY REASON OF THEIR TASKMASTERS.  FOR I KNOW THEIR SORROWS.  AND I HAVE COME DOWN TO DELIVER THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE EGYPTIANS, AND BRING THEM INTO A GOOD LAND AND A LARGE LAND TO A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY TO THE PLACE OF THE CANAANITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE.

NOW THEREFORE, GOD SAID, BEHOLD, THE CRY OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAS COME TO ME, AND I HAVE SEEN THE OPPRESSION BY WHICH THE EGYPTIANS OPPRESS THEM.  COME NOW THEREFORE, THE LORD SAID, AND I WILL SEND YOU TO PHARAOH THAT YOU SHALL BRING FORTH MY PEOPLE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT.

AND MOSES SAID TO GOD, WHO AM I THAT I SHOULD GO TO PHARAOH AND THAT I SHOULD BRING FORTH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?  AND GOD SAID, I WILL CERTAINLY BE WITH YOU AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN TO YOU THAT I HAVE SENT YOU.  WHEN YOU HAVE BROUGHT FORTH THE PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT, YOU WILL SERVE GOD ON THIS MOUNTAIN.

AND MOSES SAID TO GOD, WHEN I COME TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND I SHALL SAY TO THEM, THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS HAS SENT ME TO YOU, AND THEY SHALL SAY TO ME, WHAT IS HIS NAME?  WHAT SHALL I SAY TO THEM?

AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, I AM THAT I AM.  AND GOD SAID, THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU.

AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB HAS SENT ME TO YOU.  THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, AND THIS IS HOW I AM TO BE REMEMBERED TO ALL GENERATIONS.

GO AND GATHER THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL TOGETHER AND SAY TO THEM, THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, OF ISAAC, AND OF JACOB HAS APPEARED TO ME SAYING, I HAVE SURELY VISITED YOU, AND SEEN THAT WHICH IS DONE TO YOU IN EGYPT.  AND I HAVE SAID, I WILL BRING YOU UP OUT OF THE AFFLICTION OF EGYPT TO THE LAND OF THE CANAANITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE TO A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY.

AND THEY WILL LISTEN TO YOUR VOICE, AND YOU SHALL COME, YOU AND THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL TO THE KING OF EGYPT.  AND YOU SHALL SAY TO HIM, THE LORD GOD OF THE HEBREWS HAS MET WITH US, AND NOW LET US GO, WE BESEECH YOU, THREE DAYS JOURNEY INTO THE WILDERNESS THAT WE MAY SACRIFICE TO THE LORD OUR GOD.

AND I AM SURE THAT THE KING OF EGYPT WILL NOT LET YOU GO.  NO, NOT BY A MIGHTY HAND.  AND I WILL STRETCH OUT MY HAND AND STRIKE EGYPT WITH ALL MY WONDERS THAT I WILL DO IN THE MIDST OF IT, AND AFTER THAT, HE WILL LET YOU GO.

AND I WILL GIVE THE PEOPLE FAVOR IN THE SIGHT OF THE EGYPTIANS, AND IT SHALL BE THAT WHEN YOU GO, YOU WILL NOT GO EMPTY.  BUT EVERY WOMAN SHALL ASK OF HER NEIGHBOR, AND FROM THE STRANGER IN HER HOUSE, JEWELS OF SILVER, AND JEWELS OF GOLD, AND GARMENTS, AND YOU SHALL PUT THEM UPON YOUR SONS, AND UPON YOUR DAUGHTERS, AND YOU SHALL STRIP EGYPT.

BUT MOSES ARGUED WITH GOD.  THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BELIEVE ME, NOR WILL THEY LISTEN TO ME, FOR THEY WILL SAY, THE LORD HAS NOT APPEARED TO YOU.  AND THE LORD SAID, WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR HAND?  AND MOSES SAID, A ROD.

AND GOD SAID, TOSS IT ON THE GROUND.  AND MOSES TOSSED IT ON THE GROUND AND IT BECAME A SNAKE.  AND MOSES FLED FROM BEFORE IT.  AND GOD SAID, TAKE IT BY THE TAIL.  AND MOSES TOOK IT BY ITS TAIL AND IT BECAME A ROD IN HIS HAND.

AND GOD SAID, THAT THEY WILL BELIEVE THAT THE LORD GOD OF THEIR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB HAS APPEARED TO YOU.  BUT MOSES KEPT ARGUING WITH GOD.  AND THE LORD BECAME A LITTLE ANGRY WITH MOSES.  AND HE SENT HIS BROTHER AARON TO ASSIST HIM.  EXODUS 3-4

THE REST IS FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM.  GOD DESTROYED EGYPT BY TURNING THE WATERS TO BLOOD, SENDING PLAGUES OF FROGS, AND LICE, AND FLIES, UPON EGYPT.  AND GOD KILLED THE EGYPTIAN CATTLE, AND PUT BOILS AND ERUPTIONS ON THE EGYPTIANS.  AND GOD SENT HAIL AND FIRE, AND LOCUSTS, AND THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS UPON THE EGYPTIANS THAT COULD BE FELT.  AND THE LAST AND FINAL PLAGUE, GOD KILLED THE FIRSTBORN EGYPTIANS.

AND ON THE EVENING OF THE FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE FIRST HEBREW MONTH, GOD ESTABLISHED THE FIRST PASSOVER. 

GOD HAD EACH JEWISH HOUSEHOLD KILL A LAMB AND STRIKE ITS BLOOD ON THE UPPER DOOR POST, AND TWO SIDE POSTS OF THEIR HOUSES.  AND WHEN GOD CAME THROUGH EGYPT TO KILL THE FIRSTBORN EGYPTIANS, GOD WOULD SEE THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB ON THE DOORPOSTS.  AND GOD PASSED OVER THEIR HOUSES AND SAVED THEM ALIVE FOR THEIR DELIVERANCE OUT OF EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN TO BE CALLED THE LAND OF ISRAEL, A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAND ON EARTH.

AND DURING THEIR FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS GOD TAUGHT HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY TO SERVE THE HOLY GOD OF ISRAEL ACCORDING TO HIS SPOKEN WORD.  AND WHEN FORTY YEARS WERE COMPLETE, GOD SENT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL INTO CANAAN TO DESTROY THE CANAANITES AND POSSESS THE LAND OF CANAAN BECAUSE OF CANAAN’S GREAT SINS AGAINST GOD.  EZEKIEL 20.6

GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM WAS COMPLETE AND FULFILLED.  BUT BEFORE ANSWERING THE QUESTION, WHY DID THE LORD GOD GIVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE PASSOVER, I’D LIKE TO SPEND A MOMENT ON WHY GOD EXILED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ISRAEL YEARS AFTER THEY ARRIVED.

GOD SENT ISRAEL INTO EXILE THREE TIMES.  FIRST TO ASSYRIA IN 722 B.C.E./B.C., AND THEN TO BABYLON IN 586 B.C.E./B.C.  BOTH TIMES BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE SINNED AGAINST THE LORD THEIR GOD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL BY DISOBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD.  AFTER WARNING AFTER WARNING AFTER WARNING FROM GOD’S PROPHETS, GOD EXILED HIS PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR LAND.  BUT GOD BROUGHT THEM BACK TO ISRAEL AGAIN IN 516 B.C.E./B.C.

AND GOD EXILED HIS JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ISRAEL A THIRD TIME IN 70 C.E./A.D. WHEN THE ROMANS DESTROYED JERUSALEM AND THE SECOND TEMPLE. NOT TO RETURN TO ISRAEL UNTIL AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR ENDED IN 1945, 2,000 YEARS LATER.

THERE WAS ALWAYS A PRESENCE OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL DURING THE EXILES.

DURING THE EXILE OF 70 C.E./A.D., THE ROMANS RENAMED ISRAEL, PALESTINE IN 135 C.E./A.D..

GOD’S EXILE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM ISRAEL IN 70 C.E./A.D. WAS NOT ONLY BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE DISOBEYED THE LORD THEIR GOD, THEY ALSO REJECTED THEIR GOD AND MESSIAH, YESHUA HAMASHIAKH.  AND FOR THOSE REASONS, GOD CAST HIS PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR LAND FOR ALMOST 2,000 YEARS.

THE EXILE TO ASSYRIA, 2 KINGS 17.6-23

THE EXILE TO BABYLON, 2 CHRONICLES 36.14-20

THE EXILE IN 70 C.E./A.D., LUKE 19.41-44

GOD BROUGHT MILLIONS OF JEWS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL AFTER THE WAR.  AND IN 1948 WHEN THE UNITED NATIONS DECIDED TO ALLOW THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO HAVE THEIR OWN HOMELAND IN ISRAEL THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION, PALESTINE WAS DIVIDED.  THE ONE HALF WAS GIVEN TO THE ARABS WHO CALL THEMSELVES PALESTINIANS, AND THE OTHER HALF TO THE JEWS, WHO RENAMED THEIR LAND, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  AND TODAY, AFTER MANY WARS, ISRAEL IS UNDER JEWISH CONTROL.

AND GOD PROMISES TO BRING HIS JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL WHO OBEY HIS SPOKEN WORD TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL WHEN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND ESTABLISHES HIS MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL FOR 1,000 YEARS WHERE MESSIAH WILL REIGN IN JERUSALEM.

DEUTERONOMY 30.1-10, JEREMIAH 23.5-8

OKAY, SO WHY DID THE LORD GOD GIVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE PASSOVER? 

UNLIKE THE THREE EXILES BECAUSE OF JEWISH SIN, DISOBEYING GOD, THE LORD SENT JACOB AND HIS JEWISH FAMILY OF 70 TO EGYPT FOR THE REASONS GOD CREATED PASSOVER FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. 

DURING 400 YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, GOD MADE OF ABRAHAM A GREAT NATION FROM 70 JEWISH PEOPLE TO 3 MILLION JEWISH PEOPLE. 

AT THE CONCLUSION OF 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY, GOD ESTABLISHED HIS FIRST PASSOVER TO DELIVER HIS PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT.  BUT NOW WITH A MIGHTY JEWISH ARMY TO CONQUER CANAAN, WITH GOD’S GREAT HELP, THAT BECAME THE JEWISH HOMELAND, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

AND DURING THOSE FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS FROM EGYPT TO CANAAN, GOD TAUGHT HIS PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY BY OBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS FOR A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN ISRAEL, FOLLOWED BY ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN. 

AND 2,000 YEARS AGO GOD ALMIGHTY, AS A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA, GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD IN JERUSALEM ON THE FIRST DAY OF PASSOVER TO BE YOUR ATONEMENT TO DELIVER YOU, AND GIVE YOU FREEDOM FROM YOUR SINS.

HAVE A WONDERFUL PASSOVER.

WHAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS?

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue in Deuteronomy 18.9-14.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS?

So with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 18.9-14.

THE BIBLE THAT HAS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN IT IS FOR ALL MANKIND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, FOR GOD IS THE CREATOR OF THE WORLD AND ALL THE PEOPLE IN IT. 

THEREFORE IN THESE VERSES OF DEUTERONOMY 18.9-14, GOD ALMIGHTY TEACHES THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL HUMANITY THAT MAGIC, AND WIZARDS, AND OTHER MAGIC STUFF IS AN ABOMINATION.  YOU SHALL NOT LEARN TO DO AFTER THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE CANAANITE NATIONS.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW.  HIS WORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  AND WE ARE TEACHING GOD’S LAW RIGHT NOW.

LEVITICUS 24.22, NUMBERS 15.16, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

LET’S LOOK BACK INTO JEWISH HISTORY.  IT IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 7.6-8 THAT GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE, SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT THAT WAS NOT WHEN GOD FIRST CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.  SOME 721 YEARS EARLIER, GOD CALLED ABRAHAM OUT FROM THE GENTILES TO BE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

ABRAHAM WAS CALLED ABRAM WHEN HE WAS BORN IN UR OF THE CHALDEES THAT WOULD BE IN CURRENT DAY IRAQ NEAR THE PERSIAN GULF.  THERE IN UR OF THE CHALDEES ABRAM MARRIED SARAI WHOSE NAMES GOD CHANGED AT A LATER TIME TO ABRAHAM, MEANING A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS, AND SARAH, MEANING PRINCESS.

FROM UR OF THE CHALDEES, ABRAHAM’S FATHER TOOK HIM AND HIS WIFE SARAH, AND ABRAHAM’S NEPHEW LOT, AND THEY LEFT FOR THE LAND OF CANAAN.  BUT FIRST THEY CAME TO A PLACE CALLED HARAN THAT WOULD BE IN CURRENT DAY NORTHERN IRAQ.  AND THERE THEY STAYED FOR AWHILE.

NOW IN HARAN, THE LORD GOD SPOKE TO ABRAHAM.  WHETHER FACE TO FACE, OR GOD SPOKE TO ABRAHAM IN HIS MIND, I DON’T KNOW.  BUT GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, GET OUT OF YOUR COUNTRY, AND FROM YOUR FAMILY, AND FROM YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE TO A LAND THAT I WILL SHOW YOU.  THAT LAND WAS THE LAND OF CANAAN, THE PROMISED LAND THAT GOD WOULD LATER GIVE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION TO BE CALLED THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

AND GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, I WILL MAKE OF YOU A GREAT NATION, AND I WILL BLESS YOU, AND MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT, AND YOU SHALL BE A BLESSING.

AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS YOU, AND CURSE HIM WHO CURSES YOU.  AND IN YOU SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.

SO ABRAHAM LEFT HARAN AS THE LORD SAID, AND HE TOOK HIS WIFE SARAH, AND HIS NEPHEW LOT AND THEY WENT INTO THE LAND OF CANAAN.  ABRAHAM WAS SEVENTY FIVE YEARS OLD AT THE TIME.

TWENTY FOUR YEARS LATER WHEN ABRAHAM WAS 99 YEARS OLD, THE LORD APPEARED TO ABRAHAM, AND GOD SAID TO HIM, I AM THE ALMIGHTY GOD.  WALK BEFORE ME AND BE PERFECT.

BEING PERFECT WITH GOD IS DOING WHAT GOD SAYS, OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS. 

TODAY BEING PERFECT WITH GOD IS LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.

AND GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, I WILL MAKE MY COVENANT BETWEEN ME AND YOU, AND I WILL MULTIPLY YOUR DESCENDANTS EXCEEDINGLY.  AND ABRAHAM FELL ON HIS FACE, AND GOD TALKED TO HIM.

GOD’S COVENANT IS GOD’S SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE THAT IS LAW FOREVER.

AND GOD ALSO SAID TO ABRAHAM, YOU SHALL BE A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS, AND YOUR NAME SHALL NO LONGER BE ABRAM, BUT YOUR NAME SHALL BE ABRAHAM FOR I HAVE MADE YOU A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS.

AND I WILL MAKE YOU EXCEEDING FRUITFUL, AND I WILL MAKE NATIONS OF YOU, AND KINGS SHALL COME OUT OF YOU.

AND I WILL ESTABLISH MY COVENANT BETWEEN ME AND YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT TO BE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND HIS DESCENDANTS AFTER HIM. 

AND YOU ABRAHAM AND YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE THE PEOPLE OF GOD.  GENESIS 17.7

AFTER ISAAC WAS BORN TO ABRAHAM AND SARAH, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR DESCENDANTS BE CALLED.  THAT IS TO SAY, THE DESCENDANTS OF ISAAC, HIS SON JACOB, AND JACOB’S TWELVE SONS, AND THEIR DESCENDANTS AFTER THEM MAKE UP THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

AND GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, I WILL GIVE TO YOU AND TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU THE LAND WHERE YOU ARE A STRANGER, ALL THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.

ABRAHAM AND HIS FAMILY AT THE TIME WERE LIVING IN THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT YEARS LATER BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GENESIS 12.1-7, GENESIS 17.1-12, GENESIS 21.12, DEUTERONOMY 7.6-10, 1 CHRONICLES 16.15-17, PSALM 105.8-10

THE POINT I’M MAKING HERE IS THIS.  WHEN GOD TOOK ABRAHAM OUT FROM THE GENTILES TO BE THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.

AND IT IS GOD WHO TEACHES THE JEWISH PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND GOD ESTABLISHED HIS EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND.

GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT IS HIS WORD THAT IS LAW FOREVER.

AGAIN, GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT IS HIS WORD THAT IS LAW FOREVER.

AND GOD REQUIRES ALL MANKIND, JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE TO OBEY HIS EVERLASTING COVENANT, HIS WORD THAT IS LAW FOREVER.  FOR THAT IS BEING HOLY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR ALL MANKIND.  HIS SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE. 

AND WHEN YOU OBEY GOD’S SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL GIVE YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT.  ACTS 5.32

AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, THE LAST SUPPER, MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, TOOK MATZAH AND BLESSED IT, AND BROKE IT, AND GAVE IT TO HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES AND SAID, TAKE, EAT.  THIS IS MY BODY.

AND HE TOOK THE CUP, AND GAVE THANKS, AND GAVE IT TO THEM, SAYING, DRINK ALL OF IT, FOR THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. 

MATTHEW 26.26-28

GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, HA SHEM IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA IS OUR ATONEMENT.  THAT IS LAW.

EVERY WORD MESSIAH YESHUA SPEAKS THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD BECAUSE MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, THE SON, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, MELCHIZEDEK, THE GLORY OF GOD, HA SHEM, AND SO MUCH MORE.

WHEN YOU ARE HOLY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, CHOSEN TO BE SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND LOVED BY GOD BECAUSE YOU ARE OBEDIENT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.

PSALM 110.3, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

THE WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE STANDS FOREVER.  IT NEVER CHANGES NOR DOES IT EVER END.  NO ONE, NOT EVEN GOD HIMSELF CAN CHANGE OR END THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

GOD APPOINTED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO RECORD EVERY WORD THAT HE SPOKE TO THEM AND OTHERS.

AND IT IS THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WROTE THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION RECORDING THE WORDS THAT GOD TEACHES ALL PEOPLES, JEWISH AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD. 

AND HOLINESS TO THE LORD IS LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THEN YOU WILL BE A TRUE WITNESS FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND A SERVANT WHOM GOD HAS CHOSEN.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 43.10-11, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

ANOTHER POINT IS THIS.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE SLAVES IN EGYPT FOR 400 YEARS BEFORE GOD CHOSE MOSES TO BRING THEM OUT AND LEAD THEM TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT GOD GAVE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION THAT WAS RENAMED THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

AND IN EGYPT, GOD MADE OF ABRAHAM A GREAT NATION.

WHEN GOD BROUGHT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO THE DOOR STEP OF CANAAN, THE LORD CONTINUED TEACHING HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE THROUGH HIS PROPHET MOSES HOW TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE, SPECIAL TO GOD ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

TO BE HOLY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SPECIAL ABOVE ALL PEOPLE, AND LOVED BY GOD, ALL PEOPLE, JEWISH AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE MUST LEARN THE LAW OF MOSES FROM THE BIBLE, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD OF THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THE LAW OF MOSES DOES NOT CONTAIN LAWS MADE BY MOSES.  THE LAW OF MOSES CONTAINS ONLY LAWS THAT GOD MADE FOR THE WORLD TO OBEY IN ORDER TO BE HOLY UNTO THE LORD, THE GOD OF CREATION.  TO EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.

WHILE SLAVES IN EGYPT, I’M SURE THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAD SOME UNDERSTANDING ON HOW TO BE HOLY BY WORD OF MOUTH.  FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL LEARNED ABOUT GOD AND THEIR FATHERS ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB.

BUT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL LIVED IN PAGAN EGYPT THAT BELIEVED IN HUNDREDS OF gods.  AND THE CANAANITE PEOPLE WERE THE SAME HAVING ZERO KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, DOING ABOMINATIONS THAT GOD HATED.

THEREFORE DURING THEIR FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS, FROM SLAVERY IN EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN, GOD TAUGHT HIS PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY AND SPECIAL AND LOVED, TO LIVE IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS BY TEACHING THEM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES TO OBEY AND DO.

AND IN THESE SCRIPTURES, DEUTERONOMY 18.9-14, GOD TAUGHT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND THE WORLD THAT MAGIC AND OTHER PAGAN STUFF IS AN ABOMINATION TO GOD. 

AND GOD WARNS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE WORLD, DO NOT LEARN THE PRACTICES OF THE CANAANITES BECAUSE ALL THOSE THINGS ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND GOD HAS NOT APPOINTED YOU TO DO THOSE ABOMINATIONS.

GOD’S LOVE IS CONDITIONAL UPON YOU BEING HOLY, LIVING YOUR LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  FOR GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY. 

THAT IS SALVATION, AND THAT IS THE BEAUTY HOLINESS.   

GOD IS HOLY BECAUSE GOD LIVES BY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU AND ME.   

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

BY DOING NO SIN, MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY LIVED BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  GOD DOES NOT SIN BECAUSE HE LIVES HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES.

LEVITICUS 19.1-2, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, ROMANS 6.22, EPHESIANS 5.27, 1 JOHN 3.4, HEBREWS 13.20-21, JAMES 1.17, 18, 21-25, 1 PETER 1.15-16

DEUTERONOMY 18.9  WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU, YOU SHALL NOT LEARN TO DO AFTER THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS.

ABOMINATIONS IN HEBREW IS TOW’AH’VOTE THAT MEANS WHAT THOSE NATIONS DO ARE AN ABOMINATION, HATEFUL, DISGUSTING, ABHORRENT, AND IDOLATRY.

IT IS GOD WHO TAUGHT AND TEACHES THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND ALL PEOPLES THAT HOLINESS IS DOING ALL THAT GOD SAYS.  LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

NOT DOING MAGIC IS PART OF GOD’S HOLINESS.  YOU SHALL NOT LEARN TO DO AFTER THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS.

THE NATIONS THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED IN CANAAN AT GOD’S COMMAND WERE THE KENITES, THE KENIZZITES, THE KADMONITES, THE HITTITES, THE PERIZZITES, THE REPHAIM, THE AMORITES, THE CANAANITES, THE GIRGASHITES, AND THE JEBUSITES.  GENESIS 15.18-21

REMEMBER, BEING HOLY IS OBEYING GOD, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEN YOU WILL EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS. AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL GIVE YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT. 

PSALM 29.2, ACTS 5.32

BUT HOLINESS HAS A WHOLE LOT OF ENEMIES WHO WILL TELL YOU THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.  AND THAT IS A LIE.

DEUTERONOMY 18.10-12  THERE SHALL NOT BE FOUND AMONG YOU ANY ONE THAT MAKES HIS SON OR HIS DAUGHTER TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR THAT USES DIVINATION, OR AN OBSERVER OF TIMES, OR AN ENCHANTER, OR A WITCH, OR A CHARMER, OR A CONSULTER WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS, OR A WIZARD, OR A NECROMANCER.

FOR ALL THAT DO THESE THINGS ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.  AND BECAUSE OF THESE ABOMINATIONS, THE LORD YOUR GOD DOES DRIVE THEM OUT FROM BEFORE YOU.

PASSING THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER THROUGH FIRE IS BEYOND AN ABOMINATION.  AND GOD REFUSED TO ALLOW HIS HOLY PEOPLE TO LIVE IN THE SAME LAND WITH THEM.

THEREFORE GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO KILL THE CANAANITES BECAUSE OF THEIR ABOMINATIONS. 

GOD OWNS ALL THE LAND ON EARTH.  IT BELONGS TO HIM.  HE CREATED IT.  IT IS HIS TO DO WITH AS HE PLEASES ACCORDING TO HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND GOD DID NOT WANT HIS HOLY PEOPLE, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO EVEN BE NEAR THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS.  THEREFORE, AS GOD PROMISED ABRAHAM, THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE CANAANITES HAD COME TO AN END.  THEIR INIQUITY WAS FULL, COMPLETE, AND FINISHED.  GENESIS 15.13-16

DIVINATION IS WITCHCRAFT, THE USE OF MAGIC, AND SORCERY, THE PRACTICE OF SEEKING TO FORETELL FUTURE EVENTS BY DEMONIC POWER.

AN OBSERVER OF TIMES PRACTICES MAGIC SEEKING TO INFLUENCE THE COURSE OF EVENTS BY USING DEMONIC SPIRITS, WITCHCRAFT, AND CONSULTING WITH DEMONS AND THE DEAD.

AN ENCHANTER PRACTICES MAGIC SPELLS.

A WITCH USES SORCERY WHICH IS MAGIC USING THE POWER OF EVIL SPIRITS AND DEMONS.

A CHARMER IS A MEDIUM CHANNELING THEIR EVIL BY CONSULTING WITH DEMONS.

A CONSULTER OF FAMILIAR SPIRITS CONSULTS WITH THE DEAD, WITH DEMONS, AND WITH EVIL SPIRITS.

A WIZARD PRACTICES MAGIC ARTS.  THEY ARE SORCERERS DEALING WITH EVIL SPIRITS.

A NECROMANCER CONSULTS WITH THE DEAD.

DEUTERONOMY 18.13  YOU SHALL BE PERFECT WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

BEING PERFECT WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD IS BEING HOLY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD BY LIVING YOUR LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO GOD.  OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE WHICH IS NOT DIFFICULT.

AND WHEN YOU MESS UP, CONFESS YOUR SIN TO GOD, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU YOUR SIN.

1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 5.3, HEBREWS 13.20-21, 1 KINGS 8.61, 1 CHRONICLES 29.19

DEUTERONOMY 18.14  FOR THESE NATIONS WHICH YOU WILL POSSESS LISTENED TO, AND DID WHAT OBSERVERS OF TIMES, AND DIVINERS TOLD THEM TO DO.  BUT AS FOR YOU, THE LORD YOUR GOD DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DO THESE THINGS.

BY NOT DOING THE THINGS GOD COMMANDS YOU NOT TO DO, AND DOING THE THINGS GOD COMMANDS YOU TO DO IS LEADING A HOLY LIFE.

SO WHAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS?

THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS IS LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY FOR YOUR ATONEMENT. 

THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.  AND YOU WILL EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS IN YOUR OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE HERE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THAT IS SALVATION, AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

THE PRIESTS AND THE LEVITES ARE COMMANDED BY GOD TO TEACH TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

Shalom,

Our teaching will return to The Book of Deuteronomy from Deuteronomy 18.1-8.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE PRIESTS AND THE LEVITES ARE COMMANDED BY GOD TO TEACH TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 18.1-8.

DEUTERONOMY 18.1-4  THE PRIESTS, THE LEVITES, AND ALL THE TRIBE OF LEVI SHALL HAVE NO PART NOR INHERITANCE WITH ISRAEL.

First of all, not all Levites are Priests, but all Priests are Levites.  Priests must be males who descend from Aaron, The first High Priest.  And The Priesthood is active only when there is a Temple standing in Jerusalem.  But inactive when there is no Temple in Jerusalem.

The Priests served The LORD in The Tabernacle and The First and Second Temples.  No other person was allowed in The Sanctuary but The Priests.

However Moses spent a great amount of time in The Tabernacle in the desert because GOD met with him and spoke with Moses Face to face from above The Cover of The Ark from between the two cherubim which were upon The Ark of The Covenant of everything GOD gave Moses in Commandment to The Children of Israel.

And as GOD’S Witnesses, all that GOD Spoke to Moses, and The Children of Israel that is Written in The Law of Moses in the first five Books of The Bible is for all the world to obey and live by.

EXODUS 25.21-22, ISAIAH 43.10, LUKE 16.17

However today, without a Temple in Jerusalem, the sacrificial system and The Priesthood have temporarily ended until The Temple is rebuilt in Jerusalem.

The Priests minister to The LORD in The Sanctuary and Teach The Jewish People Torah, The Law of Moses.  While The Levites attended to all the furniture and vessels in The Tabernacle and Temples and taught The People Torah, The Law of Moses when GOD brought The Jewish People into The Promised Land Canaan that became The Land of Israel.

EXODUS 28.1, 42-43, EXODUS 29.9, EXODUS 40.13, LEVITICUS 17.1-9, DEUTERONOMY 10.8

What does GOD mean when He says, The Tribe of Levi shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel?  The LORD is their inheritance.

It means that The Levites did not inherit any land in Israel as the other Tribes did when Joshua led The Children of Israel into Canaan some 3,400 years ago that The LORD gave to The Jewish People for an everlasting Possession.

The inheritance The Levites received from GOD was The Priesthood forever.

The Levites who were not Priests were assigned to the other Tribes throughout Israel to serve GOD, and Teach The People Torah, The Law of Moses.  And they served as Judges.

And they were given land for themselves and their families in all The Tribes throughout Israel where they Served GOD and Taught The People.

And GOD required all the Tribes of Israel to provide The Levites with their every need by giving them tithes; Ten percent of their crops and their farm animals.

While the bulk of their food came from the daily sacrifices made to The LORD.  And those animals were perfect, without blemish.

NUMBERS 18.1-32, GENESIS 17.8, JOSHUA 13.14

And it must be noted that The Levites devoted their lives to GOD.

Let’s look at some Scriptures where GOD appointed The Priests and The Levites to Teach The Jewish People throughout Israel, Torah, that is The Law of Moses, and GOD’S Judgments, and Statutes.  GOD’S Statutes are GOD’S Laws, Commandments, Festivals, and Sabbaths.

LEVITICUS 10.8-11, DEUTERONOMY 33.1, 8-10, 2 CHRONICLES 17.1, 7-9, 2 CHRONICLES 35.1-3, EZRA 7.1-10, NEHEMIAH 8.1-9

LET’S LOOK AT EZEKIEL 44.1-2. 

THESE WORDS ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT FOR ALL JUDAISM BECAUSE THEY CONCERN OUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE FUTURE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL WHEN OUR MESSIAH, THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL RETURNS FROM HEAVEN.  EZEKIEL 44.1-2

THE EASTERN GATE IN THE OUTWARD SANCTUARY THAT IS SHUT TODAY AND NOT OPENED, AND NO MAN SHALL ENTER INTO IT, THE LORD SAYS, BECAUSE THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL ENTERED IN BY IT.  THEREFORE IT IS SHUT.

THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL WHO ENTERED INTO THAT GATE, THE EASTERN GATE 2,000 YEARS AGO WAS OUR MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL.

Back to our study about The Levites.  The Priests and not The Levites will Teach The People in The 1,000 year Messianic Kingdom on earth in Israel because The Levites, at some time in the past, went astray after idols.  But GOD will allow The Levites to be ministers, serving GOD by having charge of The Gates of The Temple.  And they will kill the burnt offerings and the sacrifice for The People.

EZEKIEL 44.10-16, 23-24

DEUTERONOMY 18.5  FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN HIM (LEVI) OUT OF ALL YOUR TRIBES TO STAND TO MINISTER IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, HIM AND HIS SONS FOREVER.

After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E. / A.D., and I do not know the exact year or time in Jewish history, Rabbis, on their own authority and not GOD’S authority, replaced The Levites as the official Torah Teachers to The Jewish People.

According to The Oxford Edition of The Jewish Religion, virtually all religious functions and privileges, including tithes were removed from The Levites, and authority was given to The Rabbis who were students of Talmud, the oral law.

However, and these are my words, GOD appointed The Levites to Teach Torah, The Law of Moses to The Jewish People.

Let’s spend a moment or two on the fact that GOD appointed The Levites to Teach The Law of Moses to The Jewish People.  Talmud is never taught in Torah.  But it is Torah that The LORD requires to be taught to His People.

Let’s move on from the Rabbis because The Rabbis are The Religious Leaders of Judaism today.

GOD requires Torah to be taught to The Jewish People because GOD says to The Jewish People in Torah, For you are a Holy People unto The LORD Your GOD.  The LORD Your GOD has Chosen you to be a Special People unto Himself above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

The LORD did not set His Love upon You, nor choose You because You were more in number than any people, for You were the fewest of all people.

But because The LORD Loved You, and because He would keep the Oath which He had Sworn unto Your fathers has The LORD brought you out with a Mighty Hand, and Redeemed You out of the house of bondmen from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Know therefore that The LORD Your GOD, He is GOD, The Faithful GOD Who Keeps Covenant and Mercy with Them that Love Him and Keep His Commandments to a thousand generations.  That is forever.

And repays them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them.  He will not be slack to them that hate Him.  He will repay them to their face.

You shall therefore Keep The Commandments and The Statutes, and The Judgments which I Command You this day to do them.  DEUTERONOMY 7.6-11

TO BE HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SPECIAL UNTO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, YOU MUST LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS, INSTRUCTIONS AND COMMANDMENTS WRITTEN IN IT.  AND BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  THAT IS BEING A HOLY PERSON UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT. 

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4 

GOD’S Torah, His Law of Moses that never changes or ends is The Spoken Word of GOD, and The Foundation of Truth that must be Obeyed by all mankind.

Read about the necessity of obeying GOD in the event with satan the snake and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 2.16-17 and Genesis Chapter 3.  Adam and Eve were not Jewish.  They were Gentiles.

How can someone read The Bible, and for some to teach from The Bible, and believe the foolishness that Jesus abolished The Law of Moses, and supplanted The Old Testament?  Don’t they realize that that teaching is hating GOD by rejecting every Word GOD Speaks in His Law of Moses, and Rejecting The Words that GOD Speaks in The Bible?

DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10, HEBREWS 12.25

However GOD will Bless Those Who Bless The Jewish People and Israel.  That is also Salvation.

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

DEUTERONOMY 18.6-8  AND IF A LEVITE COMES FROM ANY OF YOUR GATES OUT OF ALL ISRAEL WHERE HE SOJOURNED, AND COMES WITH ALL THE DESIRE OF HIS MIND TO THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD SHALL CHOOSE, THEN HE SHALL MINISTER IN THE NAME OF THE LORD HIS GOD AS ALL HIS BRETHREN THE LEVITES DO WHICH STAND THERE BEFORE THE LORD.  THEY SHALL HAVE LIKE PORTIONS TO EAT IN ADDITION TO WHAT HE MAY RECEIVE FROM THE SALE OF HIS INHERITANCE THAT HE RECEIVED FROM HIS ANCESTORS.

LET’S READ HEBREWS 11.13-16. 

THESE ALL DIED IN FAITH, AND CONFESSED THAT THEY WERE STRANGERS AND PILGRIMS ON THE EARTH BUT DESIRE A BETTER COUNTRY.  THAT COUNTRY IS HEAVEN.

PILGRIMS ARE RESIDENT FOREIGNERS.

HEBREWS 11, AS YOU KNOW, IS THE FAITH CHAPTER.  FAITH IN GOD IS BELIEVING GOD AND OBEYING HIM, AND HAVING FAITH IN THE LORD.  OUR FAITH TODAY IS BELIEVING GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING FAITH IN THE LORD, AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS THE LORD FOR OUR ATONEMENT.

THOSE WRITTEN IN THIS CHAPTER WHO DIED IN FAITH OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE WERE ABEL, ENOCH, NOAH (NON JEWS), ABRAHAM, SARAH, ISAAC, JACOB, JOSEPH, THE PARENTS OF MOSES, AND YEARS LATER MOSES HIMSELF, AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO BY FAITH PASSED THROUGH THE RED SEA ON DRY LAND, AND BY FAITH, THOSE WHO WALKED AROUND THE WALLS OF JERICHO THAT FELL DOWN, AND THE HARLOT RAHAB, AND GIDEON, AND BARAK, SAMSON, JEPHTHAH, DAVID, SAMUEL, THE PROPHETS, THE WOMEN WHO RECEIVED THEIR DEAD RAISED TO LIFE AGAIN, ALL OF WHOM THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY.

ALL THESE HAVING OBTAINED A GOOD WITNESS THROUGH FAITH RECEIVED A BETTER COUNTRY.  THAT BETTER COUNTRY IS HEAVEN.

GOD COMMANDED THE PRIESTS AND THE LEVITES TO TEACH TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO LEARN AND OBEY BECAUSE GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF, AND A SPECIAL PEOPLE ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND BECAUSE GOD LOVES HIS JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES TO KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD AND THERE IS NO OTHER GOD BUT HIM.

THEREFORE FOR YOU TO BE HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT, AND SPECIAL TO THE LORD ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND LOVED BY GOD, AND TO BE A TRUE WITNESS FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE LORD COMMANDS YOU TO OBEY HIS TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAVE ATONEMENT THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  THEN YOU WILL BE HOLY TO THE LORD, SPECIAL ABOVE ALL PEOPLE, AND LOVED BY GOD.  AND YOU WILL INHERIT THAT HEAVENLY COUNTRY THAT IS HEAVEN.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS.

LEVITICUS 17.11, DEUTERONOMY 7.6-11, ISAIAH 43.10, ISAIAH 53.10, LUKE 8.21, REVELATION 21 & 22

YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue in Psalm 119 from verses 169-176.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT.

And with that said, let’s read Psalm 119.169-176.

PSALM 119.169  LET MY CRY COME NEAR BEFORE YOU, O LORD.  GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THIS WORD CRY IN HEBREW IS RE’NAH THAT MEANS A PRAYERFUL PLEA.  THE WRITER OF PSALM 119 CRIED OUT TO GOD IN PRAYER FOR UNDERSTANDING OF HIS WORD.

UNDERSTANDING IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE WHEN READING THE BIBLE, AND STUDYING THE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD.  IT TAKES TIME AND EFFORT.  IT TAKES OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  KNOWING THAT GOD’S WORD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

IT IS KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.  BUT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THE REASONS WHY GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

GOD TEACHES IN THE BIBLE THAT HE CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE, AND A SPECIAL PEOPLE TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND BECAUSE GOD LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES TO THE WORLD, TO KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD.  BEFORE HIM THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED.  NEITHER WILL THERE BE ANOTHER GOD AFTER HIM.

AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO KNOW, AND BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS THE LORD, AND BESIDE HIM THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

THAT IS AN EXTRAORDINARY HONOR THAT GOD HAS PLACED UPON THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND A MINISTRY TO BE CHERISHED.

GOD FOR THE MOST PART SPOKE EXCLUSIVELY TO JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, THROUGHOUT THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

AND JEWISH PEOPLE RECORDED EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS FOR JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY. 

GOD IS THE GOD OF EVERY HUMAN BEING.  AND GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW AND ONE TEACHING.  AND THAT ONE LAW AND ONE TEACHING IS EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15  THESE WORDS ARE NOT ONLY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, BUT FOR EVERYONE WHO REPENTS AND TURNS TO GOD AND LIVES BY EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  EZEKIEL 18.21

AND ISAIAH 43.10-11.  GOD SAID TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGH THE JEWISH PROPHET ISAIAH, YOU ARE MY WITNESSES, SAITH THE LORD, AND MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN THAT YOU SHALL KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

TO KNOW GOD, YOU MUST KNOW THAT GOD IS GOD, AND THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.  YOU MUST RECOGNIZE THAT GOD IS A GOD OF TRUTH.  THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH.  THAT IS TO SAY, YOU MUST AGREE WITH EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AS OPPOSED BY WHAT YOU HEAR FROM MAN.

TO BELIEVE GOD IS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD.

AND TO UNDERSTAND GOD, YOU MUST KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT DIFFICULT.  

GOD SAYS THROUGH THE PROPHET IN ISAIAH 43.11, I EVEN I AM THE LORD AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

THE HEBREW FOR I EVEN I AM THE LORD IS, AH’NO’KHI AH’NO’KHI YEHOVAH.

AH’NO’KHI AH’NO’KHI  YEHOVAH MEANS I AM, I AM THE LORD.

GOD IS SPECIFIC BY SAYING, I AM, I AM THE LORD AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.  MEANING, MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD AND SAVIOR, IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE FATHER.

AS A WITNESS FOR THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, YOU MUST KNOW, AND BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH, TO BE OBEYED.  YOU MUST AGREE WITH, AND OBEY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND MESSIAH YESHUA, THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25, 1 JOHN 5.3

THEREFORE THE TRUE WITNESS OF GOD MUST KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  THAT THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods, JESUS BEING THE SECOND god IN THE GODHEAD IS IDOLATRY AND BELIEF IN MANY gods.  BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  IT IS WRITTEN.

AND THE TRUE WITNESS OF GOD MUST KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYONE INCLUDING YOURSELF MUST LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WHICH IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  AND ATONEMENT IS REQUIRED THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS BEING A WITNESS FOR GOD.

PSALM 119.170  LET MY SUPPLICATION COME BEFORE YOU.  DELIVER ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE WORD SUPPLICATION MEANS BEING VERY HUMBLE WHEN COMING TO THE LORD IN PRAYER AND ASKING HIM FOR SOMETHING.

SO THE WRITER IS ASKING THE LORD IN PRAYER, LET MY SUPPLICATION COME BEFORE YOU.  DELIVER ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE WORDS DELIVER ME IN HEBREW IS HA’STEE’LAY’NEE THAT MEANS DEFEND ME, RESCUE ME, SAVE ME, AND DELIVER ME.

WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD.

YOU ARE A HOLY PERSON UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD LOVES YOU.

AND YOU KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD AND THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.  THAT HE IS THE LORD, AND BESIDE HIM THERE IS NO SAVIOR.  THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE FATHER, THE ONE AND ONLY GOD, YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

THEREFORE WHEN YOU GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, YOU CAN EXPECT THAT GOD WILL ALWAYS DELIVER YOU FROM WHATEVER DELIVERANCE YOU ARE ASKING HIM FOR.  BECAUSE YOUR LIFE IS BOUND IN THE LORD YOUR GOD.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

PSALM 119.171  MY LIPS SHALL UTTER PRAISE WHEN YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME YOUR STATUTES.

AGAIN, STATUTES IN HEBREW IS KHU’KEEM MEANING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, HIS DECREES AND HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE IS GOD’S COMMANDMENT, HIS DECREE, AND HIS LAW.

AND WHEN GOD TEACHES YOU HIS STATUTES, AND GOD WILL TEACH YOU HIS STATUTES WHEN YOU DILIGENTLY SEARCH FOR UNDERSTANDING FROM THE BIBLE AND NOT FROM MAN, YOU WILL PRAISE THE LORD.

PSALM 119.172  MY TONGUE SHALL SPEAK OF YOUR WORD, FOR ALL YOUR COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGHTEOUSNESS.

AGAIN, THE WORD RIGHTEOUSNESS IN HEBREW IS STEH’DEHK MEANING RIGHT.  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGHT.  THEY ARE TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

COMMANDMENTS IN HEBREW, AS IN ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, IS MEETZ’VOTE MEANING EVERY COMMANDMENT OF GOD IN THE BIBLE IS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND LAW, TEACHING AND DOCTRINE.

THEREFORE KNOWING, BELIEVING, AND UNDERSTANDING GOD IS OBEYING EVERY COMMANDMENT OF GOD IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT.

PSALM 119.173  LET YOUR HAND HELP ME, FOR I HAVE CHOSEN YOUR PRECEPTS.

BECAUSE YOU ARE LIVING BY EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD.

THEREFORE THE HAND OF GOD IS ALWAYS UPON YOU TO HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY BECAUSE YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD’S PRECEPTS.  ACCORDING TO EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

PSALM 119.174  I HAVE LONGED FOR YOUR SALVATION, O LORD.  AND YOUR LAW, THAT IS, YOUR TORAH IS MY DELIGHT.

LET’S LOOK AT HEBREWS 6.1.  THEREFORE LEAVING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF MESSIAH.  I LIKE HOW THE COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE DESCRIBES THE PRINCIPLES OF THE DOCTRINE OF MESSIAH, AS THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH.

I BELIEVE THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH TAUGHT IN THE CHURCH IS THIS.  JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS, WAS RAISED AGAIN THE THIRD DAY.  BELIEVE THAT AND YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

WELL, THERE’S A WHOLE LOT MORE TO IT THAN THAT.  THE OLD TESTAMENT IS STILL VERY MUCH PART OF THE BIBLE AND WILL ALWAYS BE VERY MUCH PART OF THE BIBLE.  IN FACT THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE.  THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE.  NO ONE CAN ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR CAN ANYONE SUPPLANT THE OLD TESTAMENT. 

ISAIAH 40.8, MALACHI 3.6, 1 PETER 1.23-25

BUT LET’S CONTINUE WITH THE VERSE.  THEREFORE LEAVING BEHIND THE INITIAL LESSONS ABOUT THE MESSIAH, LET US GO ON TO PERFECTION, NOT LAYING AGAIN THE FOUNDATION OF REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS.  DEAD WORKS ARE SIN.  SIN IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND OF FAITH TOWARD GOD.

FAITH IN GOD IS BELIEF AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD.

GOING ON TO PERFECTION IS BEING PERFECT IN THE EYES OF GOD BY WALKING IN HIS STATUTES, KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS, ALL GOD’S LAWS, AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE POINT I’M MAKING HERE FROM THE WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS THAT SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, COMES FROM LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.

AND WHEN YOU MESS UP, CONFESS YOUR SINS TO THE LORD BECAUSE HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS, AND CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

HEBREWS 13.20-21, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 CHRONICLES 29.19, JOB 1.1, 8, PSALM 37.37

WE ALL LONG FOR GOD’S SALVATION, BUT GOD’S TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES MUST BE YOUR DELIGHT.

PSALM 119.175-176  LET MY SOUL LIVE, AND IT SHALL PRAISE YOU.

I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP.  SEEK YOUR SERVANT FOR I DO NOT FORGET YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

YOU ARE THE CHOSEN OF GOD, HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD BECAUSE YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  BECAUSE GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE SPECIAL TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.  AND THE LORD LOVES YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE. 

YOU NEVER FORGET HIS COMMANDMENTS.

THEREFORE DO NOT EVER GO ASTRAY, BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD LOVES YOU, AND REQUIRES YOU TO CONTINUE TO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, HIS TORAH FOREVER WITH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  FOR HE IS YOUR LIFE.

DEUTERONOMY 7.9, JEREMIAH 31.3
