TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS. AND THEN SHALL THE END COME.

SHALOM, 

OUR TEACHING WILL CONTINUE IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES FROM DEUTERONOMY 27.1.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS.  AND THEN SHALL THE END COME. 

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 27.1.

DEUTERONOMY 27.1  AND MOSES AND THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL COMMANDED THE PEOPLE, SAYING, KEEP ALL THE COMMANDMENTS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY.

THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT MOSES AND THE ELDERS COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO KEEP, ARE ALL THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT WILL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS.  AND THEN THE END SHALL COME. 

MATTHEW 24.14, 36, 37, 38, 29, MATTHEW 22.14

GOSPEL MEANS TO ANNOUNCE GOOD NEWS, AND THE GOSPEL IS A GOOD MESSAGE.

THE CHURCH DEFINES THE GOSPEL AS THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST.  BUT THE CHURCH DOES NOT PREACH THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST.  BUT RATHER THE CHURCH PREACHES THE MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH THAT IS NOT THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST.

THE CHURCH LEADS BY EXAMPLE BY NOT OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  BECAUSE CHURCH DOCTRINE IS THIS; THE LAW OF MOSES WAS VALID UP UNTIL THE CROSS, AND CHRIST’S DEATH ON THE CROSS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.

CHRIST NEVER SPOKE THOSE WORDS. BECAUSE THEY ARE ANTI-GOD AND ANTI-SALVATION WORDS.  RATHER CHRIST SAID, IT IS WRITTEN, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD. 

EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD IS GOD’S LAW, HIS COMMANDMENT, HIS TEACHING, AND HIS INSTRUCTION WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, 1 JOHN 3.4, MATTHEW 26.28

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

MARK 12.29, DEUTERONOMY 6.4

THOSE WORDS ARE ALSO THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM.

MESSIAH SPOKE HEBREW IN ISRAEL, AND “HEAR,” AS IN “HEAR” O ISRAEL, IN HEBREW IS “SHEMA” MEANING, HEAR, PAY ATTENTION, AND OBEY.

THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST IS TO HEAR EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, PAY ATTENTION TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

THOSE WORDS OF OBEDIENCE TO GOD ARE THE GOSPEL THAT ARE SPOKEN BY GOD THROUGHOUT THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.  BECAUSE THE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD ARE THE GOOD NEWS AND THE GOOD MESSAGE.  AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS THE GOSPEL.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU OBEY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL REWARD YOU WITH A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND PROSPEROUS LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL.

ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOT A GOOD MESSAGE NOR IS IT GOOD NEWS, BUT ON THE CONTRARY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD LEAVES YOU FAR OFF FROM SALVATION.

MESSIAH ALSO SAID HE DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS.  HE CAME TO FULFILL.

MESSIAH SAID, ALL THINGS MUST BE FULFILLED WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND IN THE PROPHETS, AND IN THE PSALMS CONCERNING ME.  

MATTHEW 5.17, LUKE 24.44

THEREFORE THE MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH FOR OVER 1,700 YEARS THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED AND NO LONGER IN EFFECT IS NOT THE GOSPEL.  GOD FORBID.

THE GOOD MESSAGE, THE GOOD NEWS, IS WHAT MOSES AND THE ELDERS SAID TO THE PEOPLE; KEEP ALL THE COMMANDMENTS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT MESSAGE, KEEP ALL GOD’S WORDS, LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THAT IS FOR ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY IS THAT THOSE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD ARE THE GOSPEL.  AND THAT IS THE GOOD MESSAGE ANNOUNCING GOOD NEWS.  BECAUSE WHEN YOU OBEY GOD, WHEN YOU OBEY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, GOD WILL HEAP BLESSINGS UPON YOU THAT WILL OVERTAKE YOU, AND GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  IT IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 28.

LET’S LOOK AT HEBREWS 8.6.  HEBREWS 8.6 IS A SCRIPTURE THAT IS MISTRANSLATED.  I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS INTENTIONAL OR NOT.  BUT THE SCRIPTURE HAS A VERY DIFFERENT MEANING WHEN LOOKING UP ONE WORD IN THE GREEK, AND ITS MEANING.

HEBREWS 8.6 IN THE KING JAMES, READS, BUT NOW HAS HE (MESSIAH YESHUA) OBTAINED A MORE EXCELLENT MINISTRY, BY HOW MUCH ALSO HE IS THE MEDIATOR OF A BETTER COVENANT WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED UPON BETTER PROMISES.

A MEDIATOR IS A GO-BETWEEN, A PEACEMAKER. 

BETTER, MEANING BETTER AND STRONGER.

COVENANT IS A CONTRACT OR A TESTAMENT.

AND BETTER PROMISES MEANS BETTER PROMISES.

BUT HERE’S THE WORD THAT IS MISTRANSLATED, THE WORD ESTABLISHED. 

ESTABLISHED IN GREEK IS NOMOTHETEO THAT MEANS TO LEGISLATE, MEANING, TO MAKE LAWS, ESTABLISH, RECEIVE THE LAW.

LET’S LOOK AT THIS VERSE THAT IS MISTAKEN IN ONE WORD, THE WORD ESTABLISHED, AND REPLACE IT WITH THE WORDS FROM ITS GREEK MEANING.

BUT NOW HAS HE (MESSIAH YESHUA) OBTAINED A MORE EXCELLENT MINISTRY BY HOW MUCH ALSO HE IS THE MEDIATOR OF A BETTER COVENANT WHICH “WAS MADE INTO LAW” AND ESTABLISHED UPON BETTER PROMISES.

MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD FOR OUR ATONEMENT IS THE BETTER COVENANT MADE INTO LAW THAT IS FULLY PART OF TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  BECAUSE GOD TEACHES IN THE LAW OF MOSES, SAYING, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  

AND IT IS MESSIAH’S SHED BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  LEVITICUS 17.11

THIS IS NOT ADDING TO THE WORD OF GOD AS GOD SAYS NOT TO DO.

DEUTERONOMY 4.2 READS, YOU SHALL NOT ADD TO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YOU DIMINISH FROM IT, THAT YOU SHALL KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES BECAUSE MESSIAH IS OUR ATONEMENT BY HIS SHED BLOOD.  FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  

QUITE FRANKLY, MESSIAH YESHUA IS ALREADY IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, BECAUSE MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD, ELOHIM.

THE HEBREW WORD ELOHIM, AS YOU KNOW, IS THE PLURAL WORD GODS, YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY, IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND SO MUCH MORE.                       ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

MESSIAH IS GOD, ELOHIM, WHO SAID IN GENESIS 1.1, IN THE BEGINNING GOD (ELOHIM) CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

PSALM 22 IS PROPHESY OF MESSIAH’S CRUCIFIXION, AND HIS SHED BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.

LET’S LOOK AT PSALM 22, VERSES 15-19, & 32, IN THE HEBREW BIBLE, AND VERSES 14-18, & 31, IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE.

MESSIAH’S WORDS IN VERSE 14 OR 15, I AM POURED OUT LIKE WATER.  THE WORDS “POURED OUT” COMES FROM THE HEBREW, SHAH’FAKH, MEANING THAT MESSIAH’S BLOOD WAS POURED OUT LIKE WATER. 

VERSE 31 OR 32, THAT HE HAS DONE THIS, IS THAT MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR ATONEMENT.

MY POINT IS THIS, MESSIAH YESHUA’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD THAT WAS POURED OUT LIKE WATER FOR OUR ATONEMENT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  LEVITICUS 17.11, MATTHEW 26.28

SO MESSIAH IS FULLY PART OF TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, BECAUSE MESSIAH FULFILLS THE TEACHING OF TORAH THAT IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.

MESSIAH ALSO FULFILLS THE PROPHESY OF JEREMIAH 31.31-34 THAT MESSIAH’S ATONING DEATH FORGIVES OUR SINS, AND GOD WILL REMEMBER OUR SINS NO MORE.  AND GOD WILL BE OUR GOD, AND WE WILL BE HIS PEOPLE.  JEREMIAH 31.31-34

AND THOSE ARE THE BETTER PROMISES WRITTEN IN HEBREW 8.6.

THE PROMISE OF GOD FORGIVING YOUR SINS AND REMEMBERING THEM NO MORE, AND GOD BEING YOUR GOD, AND YOU ARE GOD’S PEOPLE, IS CONDITIONAL UPON YOUR OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, THE LAWS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4, ROMANS 6.1-2

WHERE GOD SAYS IN JEREMIAH 31.33, I WILL PUT MY LAW IN THEIR INWARD PARTS AND WRITE IT IN THEIR HEARTS, THE WORDS “MY LAW” IN HEBREW IS “TORAHTI,” MY LAW, THAT IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT GOD PUTS IN YOUR INWARD PARTS AND WRITES IT IN YOUR HEARTS WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA.

BUT WHEN YOU ARE TOLD THAT YOU HAVE GOD’S LAW WRITTEN IN YOUR HEARTS BECAUSE OF YOUR BELIEF IN JESUS, AND YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU ARE BEING FOOLED AND TAUGHT A LIE.

AND THAT LIE IS VERY MUCH LIKE THE LIE OF THE SERPENT SATAN SAYING TO EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, YOU SHALL SURELY NOT DIE.  AND THIS AFTER GOD COMMANDED HER HUSBAND ADAM NOT TO EAT THE FRUIT OF A CERTAIN TREE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, BECAUSE GOD SAID TO ADAM, IN THE DAY YOU EAT OF IT, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE.

ADAM AND EVE HAD NO SIN IN THEM UP TO THAT POINT IN THEIR LIVES.  THEY WOULD LIVE FOREVER IN THE PERFECTION OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN, UNTIL THEY LISTENED TO SATAN AND DISOBEYED GOD.

SO HERE’S THE SNAKE SATAN TALKING TO EVE, SAYING, YES, HAS GOD SAID, YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE IN THE GARDEN?

AND EVE SAID, WE MAY EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREES OF THE GARDEN, BUT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREE THAT IS IN THE CENTER OF THE GARDEN, GOD HAS SAID, YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YOU TOUCH IT, LEST YOU DIE.

AND SATAN THE LIAR WHO WAS IN THE FORM OF A SNAKE, SAID TO EVE, YOU SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.

SATAN IS SAYING, YOU WILL SURELY NOT DIE IF YOU DISOBEY GOD.

AND THAT’S WHAT WE ARE BEING TAUGHT TODAY.  YOU WILL NOT DIE IF YOU DISOBEY GOD BY NOT OBEYING HIS LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE CHURCH EXCUSE FOR NOT OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES, IS, CHRIST ABOLISHED IT ON THE CROSS.  THAT IS A LIE.  CHRIST NEVER ABOLISHED THE LAW, EVER.

SATAN’S LIE WAS THIS, FOR GOD DOES KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YOU EAT OF THAT TREE, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED AND YOU SHALL BE AS GOD KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.

BUT GOD SAID TO ADAM, DO NOT EAT FROM THAT TREE, FOR IN THE DAY YOU EAT OF IT, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE.

WELL, ADAM AND EVE WHO WERE SINLESS AND PERFECT LISTENED TO SATAN.  THEY DISOBEYED GOD AND FELL INTO SIN.  AND SIN, WHICH IS DISOBEYING GOD, IS A DISEASE.

SIN IS A DISEASE BECAUSE GOD SAYS THROUGH HIS PROPHET ISAIAH, WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED. 

ISAIAH 53.5, 1 JOHN 3.4

AS YOU KNOW THOSE ARE THE STRIPES FROM THE WOUNDS THAT MESSIAH TOOK FROM THE WHIPS AND BEATINGS WHEN HE WAS KILLED ON THE CROSS TO SHED HIS BLOOD, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.

THE WORD HEALED COMES FROM THE HEBREW RAH’FAH THAT MEANS, TO CURE AND HEAL A SICK PERSON AS A PHYSICIAN HEALS.

AND WE ARE ALL SINNERS.  PSALM 14.2-3

THEREFORE WE NEED ATONEMENT FROM GOD BY THE SHED BLOOD OF MESSIAH, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL. AND THEN GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IN MESSIAH YESHUA TO LIVE BY TORAH, GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

I GUESS THAT IS WHY MESSIAH SAYS, FOR MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.  BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT RECEIVE THIS MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL THAT TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS.  AND THEN SHALL THE END COME. 

MATTHEW 24.14, 38, 39

SO BACK TO PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN HISTORY THAT IS THE GATEWAY TO HELL WHEN SATAN TOLD ADAM AND EVE, THEY DO NOT HAVE TO OBEY GOD.  OR WHEN WE ARE TOLD TODAY,  WE DO NOT HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW OF MOSES.  SOME EVEN TEACH THAT IF YOU OBEY THE LAW OF MOSES YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SALVATION.

AFTER ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD AND ATE FROM THE TREE THEY WERE TOLD NOT TO EAT OF IT, HERE COMES THE GRIEF FOR SIN, DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

WHEN ADAM AND EVE HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD IN THE GARDEN CALLING FOR THEM, THEY HID THEMSELVES FROM THE LORD.

NO ONE CAN HIDE FROM GOD.

AND GOD SAID TO SATAN THE SNAKE, BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE THIS, YOU ARE CURSED, AND AMONG OTHER THINGS, YOU WILL BE CRUSHED IN DUE TIME.

AND GOD SAID TO THE WOMAN EVE, I WILL GREATLY MULTIPLY YOUR SORROW, YOUR LABOR AND PAIN.  AND YOUR PREGNANCY WILL BE IN PAINFUL LABOR WHEN YOU BRING FORTH CHILDREN.

AND YOUR DESIRE SHALL BE TO YOUR HUSBAND, AND HE SHALL RULE OVER YOU.

AND TO ADAM, GOD SAID, BECAUSE YOU LISTENED TO THE VOICE OF YOUR WIFE AND DID WHAT SHE SAID BY EATING OF THE TREE WHICH I COMMANDED YOU NOT TO EAT OF IT, CURSED IS THE GROUND FOR YOUR SAKE.  IN SORROW, THAT IS IN WORRISOMENESS AND LABOR AND PAIN AND TOIL YOU SHALL EAT OF IT ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE.

THORNS, AND THISTLES THAT ARE PRICKLY PLANTS, SHALL THE EARTH BRING FORTH TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL EAT THE HERB OF THE FIELD.

IN THE SWEAT OF YOUR FACE SHALL YOU EAT BREAD TILL YOU RETURN TO THE GROUND.  FOR OUT OF IT WERE YOU TAKEN, FOR DUST YOU ARE, AND TO DUST SHALL YOU RETURN.

THAT CURSE HAS FOLLOWED ALL HUMANITY TO THIS DAY BECAUSE OF MAN’S DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.

AND GOD SENT ADAM AND EVE OUT OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN, AND IN TIME, INSTEAD OF LIVING FOREVER IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THAT WAS LIKE HEAVEN, THEY DIED.  GENESIS 5.5

WHAT’S THE OLD EXPRESSION?  THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.  SATAN IS STILL LYING, BUT NOW HE HAS HORDES OF MESSENGERS TO LIE FOR HIM.

GETTING BACK TO THE SERPENT AND ADAM AND EVE, GOD SAID, BEHOLD, THE MAN HAS BECOME AS ONE OF US.  GOD IS AN US BECAUSE GOD IS THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE MESSIAH, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND MUCH MORE.  THEY ARE ALL ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  GOD IS AN US.

AND THE LORD GOD SAID, BEHOLD THE MAN, OR BETTER SAID, THE HUMAN BEING HAS BECOME AS ONE OF US TO KNOW GOOD AND EVIL.  AND NOW LEST HE PUT FORTH HIS HAND AND TAKE ALSO OF THE TREE OF LIFE, AND EAT AND LIVE FOREVER.

SO THE LORD GOD SENT ADAM AND EVE FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN TO TILL THE GROUND FROM WHERE THEY WERE TAKEN.

AND GOD DROVE THEM OUT AND PLACED THEM AT THE EAST OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN WHERE CHERUBIM AND A FLAMING SWORD THAT TURNED EVERY WAY TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THE TREE OF LIFE. 

GOD HAS LAWS FOR ALL HUMANITY, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  BECAUSE GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW AND THAT LAW IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  AND THAT LAW FOR ALL THE WORLD IS THE GOSPEL.

AND WHEN YOU ARE TOLD THAT YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW OF MOSES, THINK SATAN, AND ADAM AND EVE.  AND PICTURE SATAN SAYING TO EVE, “YOU SHALL NOT SURELY NOT DIE.”

TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT INCLUDES MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT IS YOUR SALVATION IF YOU OBEY IT, AND THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS.  AND THEN SHALL THE END COME.

GOD PROPHECIES THE FUTURE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD, THE PEOPLE WILL BE BURNED, AND FEW WILL BE LEFT.

SHALOM,

OUR TEACHING WILL CONTINUE IN GOD’S LAW THAT IS ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES, FROM DEUTERONOMY 26.15-19.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD PROPHECIES THE FUTURE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD, THE PEOPLE WILL BE BURNED, AND FEW WILL BE LEFT.

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 26.15-19.

DEUTERONOMY 26.15  LOOK DOWN FROM YOUR HOLY HOME FROM HEAVEN AND BLESS YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL AND THE LAND WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN US AS YOU SWORE TO OUR FATHERS, A LAND THAT FLOWS WITH MILK AND HONEY.

AT THIS TIME IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY, AFTER FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, AND ANOTHER FORTY YEARS OF WALKING THROUGH THE WILDERNESS, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE PREPARING TO CONQUER CANAAN THAT WOULD BECOME THE JEWISH HOMELAND, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

SOME EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS EARLIER, GOD HAD PROMISED ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB THAT HE WOULD GIVE THEM AND THEIR DESCENDANTS AFTER THEM, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.

THE BORDERS OF CANAAN ARE THE SAME AS GOD’S BORDERS FOR ISRAEL.  FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER THAT FLOWS THROUGH SYRIA AND IRAQ.

BUT TODAY ISRAEL INHABITS A MUCH SMALLER PORTION OF THAT LAND; FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA, TO THE SINAI, TO LEBANON, TO THE BORDER OF SYRIA, TO THE JORDAN RIVER.

THE GOD-GIVEN BORDERS OF ISRAEL, NOT TODAY’S BORDERS, INCLUDE CURRENT-DAY ISRAEL, THE SINAI PENINSULA, AND DEPENDING ON THE RIVER IN EGYPT, A SMALL PORTION OF EGYPT.  ADD TO THAT, LEBANON, JORDAN, AND A LARGE CHUNK OF SYRIA AND IRAQ.  GENESIS 15.18-21

AND THOSE GOD-GIVEN BORDERS OF ISRAEL WILL RETURN TO ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHEN THE LORD RETURNS AND ESTABLISHES HIS MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL FOR 1,000 YEARS THAT WILL BECOME LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, WILL BE KING OVER ALL THE EARTH FROM THE HOLY CITY JERUSALEM.

ISRAEL IS MUCH SMALLER TODAY THAN ITS GOD-GIVEN BORDERS BECAUSE OF JEWISH DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD FOR NOT OBEYING GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THEIR REJECTION OF THEIR MESSIAH, MESSIAH YESHUA.  LUKE 19.41-44

GOD SENT HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE INTO CAPTIVITY THREE TIMES.  TO ASSYRIA IN 722 B.C.E./B.C., TO BABYLON, CURRENT-DAY IRAQ IN 586 B.C.E./B.C., AND TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH IN 70 C.E./A.D. FOR CLOSE TO 2,000 YEARS.

BUT THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A JEWISH PRESENCE IN ISRAEL.  HOWEVER THE GREAT RETURN TO ISRAEL OF JEWISH PEOPLE BEGAN IN HUGE NUMBERS AFTER THE HOLOCAUST IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR.  AND JEWISH PEOPLE CONTINUE TO MOVE TO ISRAEL TO MAKE ALYAH, THEIR NEW HOME IN THE LAND.

DURING THE EXILES OVER A PERIOD OF SOME 2,700 YEARS, ASSYRIA, BABYLON, PERSIA, THE GREEKS, THE ROMANS, THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE THAT WAS THE EASTERN PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, THE ISLAMIC ARABS, THE CHRISTIAN CRUSADERS, THE MUSLIM MAMLUKS, THE OTTOMAN TURKS, AND THE BRITISH, HAVE OCCUPIED THE JEWISH HOMELAND ISRAEL. 

NEVER AGAIN WILL A FOREIGN POWER OCCUPY THE JEWISH HOMELAND.

SO IN THIS READING OF DEUTERONOMY, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ARE ABOUT TO CONQUER THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT GOD PROMISED TO GIVE TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.

AND DURING THOSE FORTY YEARS IN THE DESERT FROM EGYPT TO CANAAN, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, SOME THREE MILLION SOULS WHOM GOD HAD DELIVERED FROM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, HAD NONE OF THE CONVENIENCES THAT WE HAVE TODAY.  BUT GOD PROTECTED AND PROVIDED FOR HIS PEOPLE.

AND DURING THE MANY YEARS OF THE EXILES, THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE CONTRIBUTED SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE NATIONS THEY LIVED AMONG, AND THE NATIONS THEY CURRENTLY LIVE IN.  WHILE SOME NATIONS EXPELLED THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

HOWEVER GOD ALWAYS WATCHES OVER HIS PEOPLE.  AND GOD PROVIDES FOR ALL WHO BELONG TO HIM.

AND THE LORD TELLS ALL HUMANITY THROUGH HIS SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION HOW YOU CAN RECEIVE THE GREAT BLESSINGS OF GOD, AND BELONG TO THE LORD GOD OF CREATION.  AND THAT IS BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.  IT’S THAT SIMPLE.  1 JOHN 3.4

MESSIAH YESHUA TELLS US IN PROPHESY THAT THE LORD WILL RETURN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE FUTURE GREAT TRIBULATION. 

MATTHEW 24.1-29-35

THE WORD TRIBULATION COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD THLIPSIS THAT MEANS, GREAT TROUBLE.

GREAT TROUBLE COMES FROM DISOBEYING GOD.  TO BE SPECIFIC, GREAT TROUBLE COMES BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD’S LAWS, HIS TEACHINGS, AND HIS INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND ALL THE NATIONS DISOBEY GOD.  THEIR PEOPLE REJECT GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE WORLD BECAUSE OF OUR DISOBEDIENCE TO THE LORD OUR GOD.  AND THE PEOPLES OF THE NATIONS WILL BE SCATTERED WHEN THE LORD RETURNS BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY DISOBEYING GOD’S LAW, HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND DISOBEYING JUST ABOUT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

GOD SAYS THROUGH THE PROPHET ISAIAH, BEHOLD, THE LORD MAKES THE EARTH EMPTY, AND MAKES IT WASTE AND TURNS IT UPSIDE DOWN, AND SCATTERS ITS PEOPLE.

THE HEBREW FOR, AND SCATTERS ITS PEOPLE, ARE V’HAY’FEETZ YEESH’VAY’HAH.  AND THE TRANSLATION IS NOT PRETTY.

BECAUSE THE NATIONS HAVE TRANSGRESSED GOD’S LAWS, AND CHANGED GOD’S ORDINANCE.  THAT IS, THE NATIONS HAVE CHANGED GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  AND THE NATIONS HAVE BROKEN GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT.  GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT IS HIS WORD SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE THAT IS LAW, GOD’S LAW.  PSALM 105.8-10

AND THE MEANING OF THE LORD SCATTERING THE PEOPLE ON THE EARTH IS THIS; GOD WILL DASH THEM IN PIECES, DISPERSE THEM, AND SPREAD THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH, THOSE WHO REMAIN, ALL OVER THE WORLD.

GOD WILL SCATTER THE PEOPLE OF THE NATIONS FOR THEIR GREAT DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, AND FEW PEOPLE WILL BE LEFT WHEN THE LORD RETURNS TO ESTABLISH HIS MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL.

AND NO, THE CHURCH WILL NOT HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN RAPTURED AND ARE UP IN HEAVEN.  NO, BECAUSE THE CHURCH TEACHES DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD WITH THEIR FALSE DOCTRINE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED AND NO LONGER IN EFFECT THROUGH THE DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS.  

IT IS WRITTEN IN ISAIAH 24.1-6. 

1/  BEHOLD, THE LORD MAKES THE EARTH EMPTY, AND MAKES IT WASTE AND TURNS IT UPSIDE DOWN AND SCATTERS ITS INHABITANTS.

2/  AND IT SHALL BE, AS WITH THE PEOPLE, SO WITH THE PRIEST, AS WITH THE SERVANT, SO WITH HIS MASTER, AS WITH THE MAID, SO WITH HER MISTRESS, AS WITH THE BUYER, SO WITH THE SELLER, AS WITH THE LENDER, SO WITH THE BORROWER, AS WITH THE TAKER OF INTEREST, SO WITH GIVER OF INTEREST WITH HIM.

3/  THE EARTH SHALL BE UTTERLY EMPTIED, AND UTTERLY SPOILED.  WORDS MEANING, THE EARTH WILL BE UTTERLY DESTROYED AND UTTERLY RUINED, FOR THE LORD HAS SPOKEN THIS WORD.

4/  THE EARTH MOURNS AND FADES AWAY.  THE WORLD LANGUISHES AND FADES AWAY.  THE PROUD PEOPLE OF THE EARTH (THOSE WHO WILL NOT OBEY GOD) DO LANGUISH.  THEY WILL BECOME WEAK AND FEEBLE.

5/  LISTEN TO WHAT THE LORD SAYS; AND THE EARTH IS CORRUPT, POLLUTED, PROFANE, AND DEFILED, UNDER ITS INHABITANTS BECAUSE THEY HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE LAWS, CHANGED THE ORDINANCE, AND BROKEN THE EVERLASTING COVENANT.

6/  THEREFORE THE CURSE DEVOURS THE EARTH, AND THEY THAT DWELL ON IT ARE GUILTY OF TRESPASS.  THEY ARE GUILTY OF SIN BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS LAW OF MOSES.  THEREFORE THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH ARE BURNED, AND FEW PEOPLE LEFT.

THAT IS GOD’S PROPHESY OF THE FUTURE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS, AND THE WORLD WILL BE BURNED, AND FEW PEOPLE LEFT.

ISAIAH 13.6-11 ISAIAH 26.21, 1 JOHN 3.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, LEVITICUS 17.11, MATTHEW 26.28

THE FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD. 

WITHOUT OBEDIENCE TO GOD, WITHOUT OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN.

BUT OBEYING GOD, AND HIS LAW, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOU HAVE SALVATION, LIFE, EVEN ETERNAL LIFE.  MATTHEW 26.28

KEEP THIS IN MIND.  CHRIST IS NOT THE END OF THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES AS ALL CHRISTIAN BIBLES READ.  BECAUSE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE TEACHES THAT CHRIST ENDED THE LAW BY HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS. 

THAT IS BLASPHEMY, DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, AND PUTTING SALVATION FAR OFF FROM YOU.  ROMANS 10.4

TO SAY THAT CHRIST ENDS THE LAW IS NUTS.

BUT CHRIST IS THE GOAL TO OBEY THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVES.

PAUL AND ALL THE NEW TESTAMENT WRITERS TAUGHT ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES.  PAUL AND THE OTHER WRITERS NEVER TAUGHT CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE THAT GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR NO LONGER IN EFFECT.  THEY TAUGHT THAT THE LAW IS ESTABLISHED FOREVER.  1 PETER 1.23-25

THE GOAL OF MESSIAH YESHUA / THE GOAL OF JESUS CHRIST FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IS TO OBEY GOD BY OBEYING HIS LAW OF MOSES FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.  AND THEN YOU WILL  HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS.  ROMANS 10.5, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 14.9, 1 JOHN 3.4

AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL, OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW, AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS SALVATION AND ETERNAL LIFE.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE BECAUSE THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST, BUT DO NOT OBEY HIS LAW OF MOSES, THAT PERSON’S BELIEF IS IN VAIN.  THERE IS NO RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THAT PERSON IN THE EYES OF GOD, BUT UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

THE GOAL OF MESSIAH IS FOR YOU TO OBEY GOD BY OBEYING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 

ISAIAH 42.1, MATTHEW 12.18, 1 PETER 2. 21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH, THE ONE GOD WHOSE LAWS ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THEN GOD WILL LOOK DOWN FROM HIS HOLY HOME IN HEAVEN, AND GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 26.16  THIS DAY THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS COMMANDED YOU TO DO THESE STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS.  YOU SHALL THEREFORE KEEP AND DO THEM WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL.

GOD IS TALKING TO YOU.  GOD IS NOT ONLY TALKING TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE DESERT, GOD IS TALKING TO EVERY HUMAN BEING IN THE WORLD.  AND HE SAYS, THIS DAY THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS COMMANDED YOU TO DO THESE STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS.  YOU SHALL THEREFORE KEEP AND DO THEM WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL.

THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN SO THAT EVERY HUMAN BEING IN THE WORLD CAN KNOW GOD, AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS GOD, AND THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.

AND GOD, THE GOD OF ALL HUMANITY REQUIRES EVERY PERSON, JEWISH, CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, HINDU, OR WHOMEVER THE PERSON MIGHT BE, TO OBEY GOD’S STATUTES AND HIS JUDGMENTS.  THAT IS TO OBEY EVERY LAW, TEACHING, AND INSTRUCTION OF GOD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE DIVINE LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL.  BECAUSE GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR MANKIND, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  GOD IS NOT THREE DIFFERENT gods.  GOD IS ONE GOD WHO IS THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE MESSIAH, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND MUCH MORE.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD. 

AND THE ONLY PLACE TO LEARN ABOUT GOD IS IN THE BIBLE FROM EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

DEUTERONOMY 26.17  YOU HAVE DECLARED TO THE LORD THIS DAY TO BE YOUR GOD, AND TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO OBEY HIS STATUTES, AND HIS COMMANDMENTS.  THAT IS EVERY WORD GOD HAS SPOKEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HIS JUDGMENTS THAT ARE ALSO GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND TO OBEY HIS VOICE BY DOING EVERYTHING GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT INCLUDES THE WORDS THAT GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER; THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  MATTHEW 26.28

THAT IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE.  THAT IS SALVATION, AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL FOR A GOOD, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

WALKING IN THE WAYS OF GOD IS LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD’S STATUTES, GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, AND GOD’S JUDGMENTS.  AND OBEYING GOD’S VOICE IS OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION. 

THAT IS THE LIGHT, AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.  

DEUTERONOMY 26.18-19  AND THE LORD HAS DECLARED TO YOU THIS DAY TO BECOME HIS PEOPLE, A SPECIAL TREASURE AS HE HAS PROMISED YOU.  AND THAT YOU SHOULD KEEP AND OBEY ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS.  AND GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE HIS LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND TO MAKE YOU HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS WHICH HE HAS MADE IN PRAISE, AND IN NAME, AND IN HONOR.  AND THAT YOU SHALL BE A HOLY PEOPLE UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AS GOD HAS SPOKEN.

DOING THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN IN THESE VERSES, 16,17,18 AND 19, YOU WILL BECOME GOD’S PEOPLE, A SPECIAL TREASURE.  AND GOD WILL MAKE YOU HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS IN PRAISE AND IN NAME AND IN HONOR.  AND YOU WILL BE A HOLY PERSON UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AS GOD HAS SPOKEN.  1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 5.3

AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.  AND MESSIAH SAYS, AND THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS, AND THEN SHALL THE END COME.  MATTHEW 24.14

LET’S AGAIN LOOK AT PAUL’S WORDS IN 1 CORINTHIANS 14.37.

IF ANY MAN THINK HIMSELF TO BE A PROPHET OR SPIRITUAL, LET HIM  ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE THINGS THAT I WRITE TO YOU ARE THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD.

THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD ARE EVERY LAW OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

LISTEN TO THIS, PLEASE, PAUL AND EVERY WRITER IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WROTE AND TAUGHT ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES.

THEREFORE GOD’S PROPHESY IS DOOM FOR THOSE WHO DISOBEY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  UNLESS YOU BLESS JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

BUT GOD’S PROMISE FOR SALVATION, AND A GOOD, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN IS TO THOSE WHO LIVE BY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  MATTHEW 26.28

GOD REMINDS US ALWAYS TO REMEMBER HIM AND OBEY HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES. AND GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU IF YOU OBSERVE TO DO ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES. SO WHY ARE WE TOLD THAT GOD’S LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED WHEN GOD’S LAW IS NOT ABOLISHED NOR WILL IT EVER BE ABOLISHED?

SHALOM,

OUR TEACHING WILL CONTINUE FROM THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF GOD.  AND OUR MESSAGE WILL COME FROM DEUTERONOMY 26.4-14.

AND REMEMBER, GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD REMINDS US ALWAYS TO REMEMBER HIM AND OBEY HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU IF YOU OBSERVE TO DO ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  SO WHY ARE WE TOLD THAT GOD’S LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED WHEN GOD’S LAW IS NOT ABOLISHED NOR WILL IT EVER BE ABOLISHED?

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 26.1-14

IN THESE VERSES, THE PROPHET MOSES IS THE SPEAKER TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.  AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ARE PREPARING TO CONQUER CANAAN TO MAKE IT THEIR EVERLASTING HOMELAND, AND CHANGE THE NAME CANAAN TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

A PROPHET OF GOD, LIKE THE PROPHET MOSES, IS ONE WHOM GOD SPEAKS TO, AND THE PROPHET TELLS THE PEOPLE WHAT GOD SAID.

WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DESCRIBES A PROPHET AS A PERSON CHOSEN TO SPEAK FOR GOD, AND GUIDE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, WEBSTER’S IS NOT ENTIRELY CORRECT.  THE PROPHET WHO IS CHOSEN BY GOD TO SPEAK FOR GOD GUIDES ALL PEOPLES WITH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD, NOT JUST THE JEWISH PEOPLE ISRAEL.

MOSES IS ONE OF THE GREAT PROPHETS CHOSEN BY GOD TO SPEAK FOR GOD.  AND THE WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE TO MOSES ARE NOT JUST FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE ISRAEL, BUT FOR ALL MANKIND.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND HE IS THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES.  THEREFORE THE SPOKEN WORDS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE ARE FOR ALL HUMANITY.  ROMANS 3.29, ISAIAH 44.6

DEUTERONOMY 26 BEGINS WITH MOSES TELLING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND (WHICH IS THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN) THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, AND YOU POSSESS IT AND LIVE IN IT,

YOU SHALL TAKE THE FIRST OF ALL THE FRUIT OF THE GROUND WHICH YOU SHALL BRING OF YOUR LAND THAT THE LORD GIVES YOU.  AND YOU SHALL PUT IT IN A BASKET, AND GO TO THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD SHALL CHOOSE TO PLACE HIS NAME THERE.

THE LORD GOD CHOSE TO PLACE HIS NAME IN THE TABERNACLE IN THE WILDERNESS THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BROUGHT TO SHILOH WHEN THEY CONQUERED CANAAN, AND LATER GOD PLACED HIS NAME IN THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES IN JERUSALEM.  JOSHUA 18.1

AND MOSES SAID, YOU SHALL GO TO THE PRIEST THAT SHALL BE IN THOSE DAYS, AND SAY TO HIM, I PROFESS THIS DAY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD THAT I HAVE COME TO THE COUNTRY WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO OUR FATHERS TO GIVE US.

DEUTERONOMY 26.4-5 AND THE PRIEST SHALL TAKE THE BASKET OUT OF YOUR HAND AND SET IT DOWN BEFORE THE ALTAR OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND YOU SHALL SPEAK AND SAY BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD, A SYRIAN READY TO PERISH WAS MY FATHER, AND HE WENT DOWN TO EGYPT, AND SOJOURNED THERE.  THAT IS TO SAY, THE SYRIAN READY TO PERISH WAS MY FATHER AND HE WENT DOWN TO EGYPT AS A STRANGER IN EGYPT WITH A FEW, AND BECAME THERE A NATION, GREAT, MIGHTY, AND POPULOUS.

LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN TO YOU WHY GOD IS CALLING THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE A SYRIAN, OR IN OTHER BIBLES AN ARAMEAN, OR FROM ARAM.

BEAR WITH ME FOR A MINUTE.

SYRIAN IN HEBREW IS AH’RAH’MEE MEANING ARAMEAN OR ARAM.

ARAM WAS A REGION LOCATED IN THE EUPHRATES – TIGRIS RIVERS REGION WHERE CURRENT DAY SYRIA, AND IRAQ, AND KUWAIT, ARE.

ABRAM, WHOM WE KNOW BETTER AS ABRAHAM, THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WAS BORN IN MESOPOTAMIA.  MESOPOTAMIA IS A GREEK WORD MEANING BETWEEN TWO RIVERS.  THOSE TWO RIVERS ARE THE EUPHRATES AND TIGRIS RIVERS.

SO ABRAHAM WAS AN ARAMEAN BEFORE GOD MADE HIM THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

ABRAHAM WAS BORN IN UR OF THE CHALDEES THAT IS ABOUT 60 MILES EAST OF THE EUPHRATES RIVER IN CURRENT DAY IRAQ DOWN NEAR THE PERSIAN GULF, AND CLOSE TO IRAN.

SO ABRAHAM IS THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO IS THE ARAMEAN, NOT A SYRIAN.  AND ABRAHAM’S PEOPLE, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AT THE TIME WHO WENT DOWN TO EGYPT WERE SEVENTY IN ALL WHO WERE READY TO PERISH BECAUSE THE KING OF EGYPT SET OUT TO KILL ALL THE MALE CHILDREN WHO WERE BORN TO THE HEBREWS, THE JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY.  EXODUS 1.15-17

THE KING JAMES BIBLE CALLS THESE ARAMEAN PEOPLE, SYRIANS.  BUT THEY WERE ARAMEANS AND NOT SYRIANS.  AND ABRAHAM WAS AN ARAMEAN, NOT A SYRIAN WHOM GOD MADE THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

OKAY, MOVING ON.  SO THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO WERE READY TO PERISH BECAME A GREAT NATION IN EGYPT, MIGHTY, AND POPULOUS.

AND THIS IS FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S WORDS TO ABRAHAM WHO ALSO WAS A GREAT PROPHET.  GENESIS 12.1-2, GENESIS 20.1-7

LET’S CONTINUE IN DEUTERONOMY 26.5-14, THE WORDS THAT MOSES SPOKE TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.  AND YOU SHALL SPEAK AND SAY BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AN ARAMEAN READY TO PERISH WAS MY FATHER, AND HE WENT DOWN INTO EGYPT AND SOJOURNED THERE WITH A FEW, AND BECAME THERE A NATION, GREAT, MIGHTY, AND POPULOUS.

VERSE 6  AND THE EGYPTIANS TREATED US WITH EVIL AND AFFLICTED US, AND LAID UPON US HARD SLAVERY.

AND WHEN WE CRIED TO THE LORD GOD OF OUR FATHERS, THE LORD HEARD OUR VOICE, AND LOOKED ON OUR AFFLICTION, AND OUR LABOR, AND OUR OPPRESSION.

8  AND THE LORD BROUGHT US FORTH OUT OF EGYPT WITH A MIGHTY HAND, AND WITH AN OUTSTRETCHED ARM, AND WITH TERRIBLENESS, AND WITH SIGNS AND WONDERS.

9  AND HE HAS BROUGHT US INTO THIS PLACE, AND HAS GIVEN US THIS LAND, A LAND THAT FLOWS WITH MILK AND HONEY.

10  AND NOW, BEHOLD, I HAVE BROUGHT THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE LAND, WHICH YOU O LORD HAVE GIVEN ME.  AND YOU SHALL SET IT BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND WORSHIP BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

11  AND YOU SHALL REJOICE IN EVERY GOOD THING WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS GIVEN TO YOU, AND TO YOUR HOUSE, YOU, AND THE LEVITE, AND THE STRANGER WHO IS AMONG YOU.

12  WHEN YOU HAVE MADE AN END OF TITHING ALL THE TITHES OF YOUR INCREASE THE THIRD YEAR WHICH IS THE YEAR OF TITHING, AND HAVE GIVEN IT TO THE LEVITE, THE STRANGER, THE FATHERLESS, AND THE WIDOW, THAT THEY MAY EAT WITHIN YOUR GATES AND BE FILLED,

13  THEN YOU SHALL SAY BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD, I HAVE BROUGHT AWAY THE HALLOWED THINGS OF MY HOUSE.  THAT IS TO SAY, I HAVE BROUGHT AWAY THE HOLY AND DEDICATED THINGS OF MY HOUSE.  AND ALSO I HAVE GIVEN THEM TO THE LEVITE, AND TO THE STRANGER, TO THE FATHERLESS, AND TO THE WIDOW ACCORDING TO ALL YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHICH YOU HAVE COMMANDED ME.  I HAVE NOT TRANSGRESSED YOUR COMMANDMENTS, NEITHER HAVE I FORGOTTEN THEM.

14  I HAVE NOT EATEN ANY OF IT IN MY MOURNING, NEITHER HAVE I TAKEN AWAY ANY OF IT FOR ANY UNCLEAN USE, NOR GIVEN ANY OF IT FOR THE DEAD.  BUT I HAVE OBEYED THE VOICE OF THE LORD MY GOD, AND HAVE DONE ACCORDING TO ALL THAT YOU HAVE COMMANDED ME.

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE NEW TESTAMENT, GOD REQUIRES NOT ONLY THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, BUT GOD COMMANDS EVERY HUMAN BEING IN THE WORLD TO OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD.  THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

WHEN YOU LOOK UP THE WORD COMMANDMENTS IN HEBREW FOR ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, YOU WILL FIND THAT THE HEBREW FOR COMMANDMENTS IS MEETZ’VOTE THAT MEANS, A COMMAND OF GOD, AND COLLECTIVELY THE LAW OF GOD THAT IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT CONTAINS GOD’S LAWS.

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, GOD REMINDS US TO ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM, AND OBEY HIM BY OBEYING HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU IF YOU OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  DEUTERONOMY 28.1-2, 15

SO WHY ARE WE TOLD THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED WHEN GOD’S LAW OF MOSES IS NOT ABOLISHED NOR WILL IT EVER BE ABOLISHED?  BECAUSE THE LAW OF MOSES REMAINS IN EFFECT FOREVER FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING FOR OUR GOOD.

AND THE BLESSINGS FOR OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES ARE WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE NEW TESTAMENT FROM MATTHEW THROUGH REVELATION.

SO I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE WITH YOU GOD’S TEACHINGS OF HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, AND THE TEACHINGS OF GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES FROM THE WRITERS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, AND THE GREAT BLESSINGS FOR OBEYING GOD’S LAW.  BECAUSE THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOT ABOLISHED NOR WILL IT EVER BE ABOLISHED.

TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT, MESSIAH SAID THAT HE DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF MOSES OR THE PROPHETS, BUT TO FULFILL ALL THINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN OF HIM IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THE PROPHETS AND IN THE PSALMS.  MATTHEW 5.17, LUKE 24.44

AND MESSIAH ALSO SAID, IT IS EASIER FOR HEAVEN AND EARTH TO PASS THAN ONE TITTLE IN THE LAW OF MOSES TO FAIL.  A TITTLE IS THE SMALLEST STROKE OF A HEBREW LETTER.  LUKE 16.17

FOLKS, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES IS FOR YOUR GOOD, AND IT IS FOREVER..

REPENTANCE.  REPENTANCE CAN ONLY BE ACCOMPLISHED BY TURNING FROM ALL YOUR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES TO OBEYING ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING ATONEMENT THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND GOD SAYS, YOU WILL SURELY LIVE. YOU WILL NOT DIE.   LUKE 24.46-47, ACTS 2.38, EZEKIEL 18.21, 1 JOHN 3.4

MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY, AND MESSIAH SAYS, GO AND SIN NO MORE.  SIN IS BREAKING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  WHEN GOD SAYS, GO AND SIN NO MORE, GOD MEANS, GO, LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES AND YOU WILL STOP SINNING AGAINST THE LORD YOUR GOD.  JOHN 5.14, JOHN 8.10, 11, 1 JOHN 3.4, ROMANS 6.1-2,

FOLLOWING MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH IS LIVING YOUR LIFE BY GOD’S TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. 

GOD’S TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE LAW OF TRUTH.  MALACHI 2.6, JOHN 8.12, 58, 59, JOHN 10.30-33, JOHN 12.26, 44-45, 1 PETER 2.21-22

JOHN 8.12  THE LIGHT IS THE TRUTH.  AND THE TRUTH IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW  OF MOSES.

DO YOU LOVE MESSIAH YESHUA?  YOU PROVE THAT YOU LOVE MESSIAH YESHUA WHEN YOU OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS, ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS JEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY.  JOHN 14.15, JOHN 14.9

JOHN 16.13  THE HOLY SPIRIT WHICH IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, GUIDES YOU INTO ALL TRUTH.  AND ALL TRUTH IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  PSALM 119.142, 1 THESSALONIANS 2.13, 2 THESSALONIANS 2.10, 35, ISAIAH 26.2

THOSE WHO OBEY GOD BY LIVING ACCORDING TO HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

ACTS 5.32  AND WE ARE HIS WITNESSES OF THESE THINGS, AND SO IS ALSO THE HOLY SPIRIT WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN TO THEM WHO OBEY HIM.

PAUL AND THE APOSTLES PREACHED THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. ACTS 8.4, 14, 22, 25, ACTS 12.24, ACTS 15.35, 36, ACTS 18.11

THE LAW OF MOSES IS TAUGHT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT FROM EVERY WRITER.  AND EVERY WRITER IN THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES YOU THAT THEIR WRITINGS ARE OF THE LORD FROM THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 CORINTHIANS 14.37

ROMANS 2.13  THE DOERS OF THE LAW OF MOSES ARE JUSTIFIED AND RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD.  BUT THOSE WHO DO NOT DO THE LAW OF MOSES ARE NOT JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD.

REVELATION 15.3  THEY SING THE SONG OF MOSES, THE SERVANT OF GOD WHO OBEYED GOD, AND WROTE GOD’S LAWS IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW OF MOSES FOR ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY FOR YOUR GOOD.

ROMANS 10.17  FAITH COMES BY OBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE WORD HEARING IN HEBREW IS SHEMA MEANING, TO HEAR AND OBEY.

ROMANS 10.5  GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES IS RIGHTEOUSNESS.  AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IS BEING RIGHT WITH GOD.  AND RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES BY OBEYING GOD, HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEREFORE YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE BY THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND YOU BECOME HOLY BY LIVING ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS HOW GOD LIVES HIS LIFE, BY THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THAT IS HOW YOU SHOULD LIVE YOUR LIFE, BY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES FOR YOUR GOOD.  1 PETER 1.15-16, ROMANS 7.12, LEVITICUS 19.1-2

ROMANS 16.25-26  PAUL’S GOSPEL IS TEACHING OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS. 

1 CORINTHIANS 14.37  PAUL WRITES, IF ANY PERSON THINKS HIMSELF TO BE A PROPHET OR SPIRITUAL, LET HIM ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE THINGS THAT HE WRITES TO YOU ARE THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD.  AND THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD ARE ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.34  AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND DO NOT SIN IS ACCOMPLISHED BY OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

1 CORINTHIANS 15.56  DEATH IS BECAUSE OF SIN, DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  BUT WHEN YOU REPENT OF YOUR SINS ACCORDING TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS, YOU WILL LIVE, AND NOT DIE.  EZEKIEL 18.21-24, EXODUS 32.33  

THE SINNER NEEDS GOD’S REPENTANCE THAT IS WRITTEN IN EZEKIEL 18.21 TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD.

ROMANS 10.4  MESSIAH IS THE END OF THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS TO EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES.  THAT TRANSLATION THAT MESSIAH IS THE END OF THE LAW IS A WICKED TRANSLATION.

THE WORD END IN GREEK IS TELOS THAT MEANS GOAL.

MESSIAH IS THE GOAL OF THE LAW TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.  AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IS ATTAINED BY OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.

THEREFORE THE GOAL FOR YOU HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS TO OBEY GOD BY OBEYING HIS LAW OF MOSES.  THAT WILL BRING YOU RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.  

MATTHEW 12.18, ISAIAH 42.1, JEREMIAH 31.31-34, HEBREWS 10.16-17

EVERYTHING MESSIAH YESHUA SAID OR DID WAS ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS WHY THERE WAS / IS NO SIN IN HIM.  1 PETER 2.2-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

2 CORINTHIANS 6.4, 7  MINISTERS OF GOD LIVE BY AND TEACH THE WORD OF TRUTH.  AND THE WORD OF TRUTH IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE BIBLE.

2 CORINTHIANS 7.1  PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD IS LIVING BY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  ECCLESIASTES 12.13

GALATIANS 3.1  THE TRUTH IS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  WHO BEWITCHED YOU THAT YOU SHOULD NOT OBEY THE TRUTH? 2 CORINTHIANS 6.7, PSALM 119.142, MALACHI 2.6

GALATIANS 3.6 TO BE A CHILD OF ABRAHAM YOU MUST BE RIGHTEOUS AS ABRAHAM WAS RIGHTEOUS WITH GOD BY OBEYING THE VOICE OF GOD. THAT IS OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, HIS CHARGE, GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, HIS STATUES, AND HIS LAWS.  AND THAT IS ACCOMPLISHED TODAY BY OBEYING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  GENESIS 15.6, GENESIS 26.1-5

ROMANS 8.4  WALKING ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT IS WALKING WITH GOD IN OBEDIENCE TO HIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.

GALATIANS 3.27  BEING BAPTIZED IN MESSIAH IS PUTTING ON MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND PUTTING ON MESSIAH YESHUA IS LIVING BY GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 PETER 2.21-22

GALATIANS 6.15-16  BEING A NEW CREATURE IS FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS, AND LIVING BY TORAH, GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.

PEACE AND MERCY UPON THEM AND UPON THE ISRAEL OF GOD.  THE ISRAEL OF GOD IS ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

JOHN 4.22  WHY IS SALVATION OF THE JEWS?  BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE SALVATION WHEN YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE.  THEREFORE SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS.

AND THE NEW TESTAMENT IS THE GOSPEL, OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS THE GOSPEL AND THAT IS A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 26.28, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ROMANS 5.11

SO WHY ARE WE TOLD BY SO MANY BIBLE TEACHERS THAT GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED WHEN GOD’S LAW IS NOT ABOLISHED NOR WILL IT EVER BE ABOLISHED?  ISAIAH 40.8, LUKE 16.17

WHY THEY TEACH THAT I DO NOT KNOW.  BUT THIS I DO KNOW.  THAT TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR NO LONGER IN EFFECT, OR JUST FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, IS AN ANTI GOD MESSAGE.

DISOBEYING GOD BEGAN EARLY IN THE CREATION WHEN GOD GAVE ADAM A SIMPLE COMMANDMENT.  DO NOT EAT THE FRUIT FROM A CERTAIN TREE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  BUT ADAM AND HIS WIFE EVE DECIDED TO LISTEN TO SATAN’S LIE THAT IT WAS OKAY TO DISOBEY GOD AND EAT FROM THAT TREE, RATHER THAN OBEY GOD AND NOT EAT FROM THAT TREE.  THAT IS THE TEACHING TODAY OF SO MANY BIBLE TEACHERS.  DO THE NATIONS DO ANYTHING THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE?  NO, NOTHING. 

SO ADAM AND EVE ATE THE FRUIT WHICH GOD TOLD THEM NOT TO AND GOD CAST THEM OUT OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND IN TIME THEY DIED.

YOU SEE, BEFORE THEY DISOBEYED GOD AND DID WHAT SATAN SAID, ADAM AND EVE HAD NO SIN.  THEY WOULD LIVE FOREVER IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THAT WAS PERFECT, WITHOUT SIN, WITHOUT TROUBLE, AND WITHOUT SICKNESS AND DEATH.  LIKE HEAVEN.

BUT THEY DID WHAT SATAN TOLD THEM.  THEY DISOBEYED GOD.  TODAY, DISOBEYING GOD IS DOING WHAT SO MANY BIBLE TEACHERS TELL YOU THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR NOT IN EFFECT, OR ONLY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, WHEN YOU SHOULD BE TAUGHT THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS IN EFFECT AND SHOULD BE OBEYED FOR YOUR GOOD.

SO BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, ADAM AND EVE LOST THEIR SALVATION.  THERE PERFECT LIFE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN CAME TO AN END, AND IN TIME THEY DIED.

LOOK, THE TROUBLES YOU SEE HERE AND AROUND THE WORLD ARE GOD’S JUDGMENTS FOR DISOBEYING HIM.  DISOBEYING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE NATIONS DISOBEY THE GOD OF ISRAEL.  AND THE FIRES YOU SEE IN CALIFORNIA ARE A PREVIEW OF THE END BECAUSE GOD SAYS, AND LISTEN TO THIS.  THE EARTH ALSO IS DEFILED UNDER THE INHABITANTS OF IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE LAWS, CHANGED THE ORDINANCE, BROKEN THE EVERLASTING COVENANT THAT IS GOD’S WORD THAT IS HIS LAW.

THEREFORE HAS THE CURSE DEVOURED THE EARTH, AND THEY THAT DWELL ON IT ARE DESOLATE.  THEREFORE THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH ARE BURNED AND FEW PEOPLE LEFT.  ISAIAH 24.5-6, MATTHEW 7.21-23

IT IS SO MUCH BETTER TO OBEY GOD BECAUSE OBEYING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES COMES WITH GREAT, GREAT BLESSINGS FROM GOD, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

GENESIS 2.16-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 28, PSALM 105.8-10, MATTHEW 25.31-46

DOES GOD DETERMINE EVERYTHING?

Shalom,

Our teaching will return to The Book of Deuteronomy in Chapter 26, Verses 1-3

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, DOES GOD DETERMINE EVERYTHING?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 26.1-3

DEUTERONOMY 26.1  AND WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, AND POSSESS IT, AND LIVE IN IT, (THAT WAS CANAAN, THAT TODAY IS THE LAND OF ISRAEL)

THE NAME ISRAEL IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE HUNDREDS OF TIMES BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GOD GAVE JACOB THE NAME ISRAEL AFTER JACOB WRESTLED WITH A MAN.  THAT MAN WAS GOD.  AND YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD. 

AND THEY WRESTLED FROM EVENING TO MORNING.  AND GOD SAID TO JACOB, WHAT IS YOUR NAME?  AND HE SAID, JACOB.  AND GOD SAID YOUR NAME SHALL NO LONGER BE JACOB BUT ISRAEL.

ISRAEL MEANS, FOR AS A PRINCE YOU HAVE POWER WITH GOD AND WITH MEN, AND HAVE PREVAILED.  GENESIS 32.22-30

WHEN GOD NAMED JACOB ISRAEL, THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT THE NAME ISRAEL WAS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT WAS SOME 4,000 YEARS AGO.

MUCH EARLIER, WELL BEFORE JACOB WAS EVEN BORN, AND ISAAC WAS BUT A YOUNG CHILD, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC’S FATHER, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR SEED BE CALLED.  OR, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR DESCENDANTS BE NAMED.  GENESIS 21.12

ABRAHAM AND SARAH HAD ONE CHILD, THEIR SON ISAAC.  ISAAC AND REBEKAH HAD TWINS, ESAU AND JACOB.

MANY BIBLES SAY THAT ESAU WAS A CUNNING HUNTER, A MAN OF THE FIELD, WHILE JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN DWELLING IN TENTS.

BUT WHEN GOD TOLD MOSES ABOUT JACOB AND ESAU WHEN MOSES WAS RECORDING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, GOD SAID THAT JACOB WAS A PERFECT MAN LIVING IN TENTS.

GENESIS 25.27  THE WORD PLAIN, AS IN JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN, COMES FROM THE HEBREW TAHM THAT MEANS PERFECT.

ALL THE BIBLES THAT I HAVE SAY THAT JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN DWELLING IN TENTS, OR A MILD MAN LIVING IN TENTS, OR A WHOLESOME MAN, OR A PLAIN AND QUIET MAN, OR A PEACEFUL MAN, OR THAT JACOB HAD A QUIET TEMPERAMENT PREFERRING TO STAY AT HOME, OR A SIMPLE MAN, OR JACOB WAS A QUIET SORT WHO LIKED TO STAY HOME, OR A COMPLETE MAN.

NOT ONE BIBLE I HAVE SAYS THAT JACOB WAS A PERFECT MAN.  I WONDER WHY?

SO WHY WAS JACOB PERFECT WITH THE LORD OUR GOD?  BECAUSE JACOB WALKED IN THE STATUTES OF GOD, AND KEPT THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD, EVERY LAW OF GOD DURING THE DAYS OF JACOB.  1 KINGS 8.60-61

SO GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR SEED BE CALLED.

ESAU HAD ZERO INTEREST IN GOD, WHILE HIS TWIN BROTHER JACOB LIVED HIS LIFE FOR GOD.  AND GOD NAMED JACOB, ISRAEL.

JACOB AND HIS FOUR WIVES, OR HIS TWO WIVES AND TWO CONCUBINES HAD TWELVE SONS AND A DAUGHTER DINAH.

THEREFORE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO ARE ISRAEL DESCEND FROM ISAAC, AND JACOB, AND JACOB’S TWELVE SONS.

JACOB’S DAUGHTER DINAH IS NOT MENTIONED AFTER GENESIS 46.15.

THEN OF COURSE, THERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE WHO CONVERT TO JUDAISM AND THEY BECOME FULLY JEWISH WITH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

SO FROM THE TIME THAT GOD NAMED JACOB ISRAEL, ALL THE DESCENDANTS OF ISAAC AND JACOB AND JACOB’S TWELVE SONS ARE CALLED IN HEBREW, B’NAI YISRAEL, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

THUS THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE FROM JACOB’S TWELVE SONS WHO ARE THE FATHERS OF THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL.

THEREFORE THE PEOPLE WHO DESCEND FROM ISAAC AND JACOB ARE ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

SO IT WAS ONLY NATURAL TO CALL THE PROMISED LAND THE LAND OF ISRAEL WHEN 3,400 YEARS AGO, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL POSSESSED IT AND LIVED IN THE PROMISED LAND.  A LAND THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION. GENESIS 17.8

HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD KNOW AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION?

WHO UNDERSTANDS THOSE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD?  HOW LONG WILL THE NATIONS WORK OVERTIME TO PUSH THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMELAND ISRAEL WITHOUT SUCCESS?

WE SEE AND WITNESS ALMOST EVERY DAY HOW THE NATIONS CONTINUE THEIR SICK DESIRE TO PUSH THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMELAND WITH ZERO SUCCESS.  AND THE NATIONS WILL NOT GIVE UP UNTIL THE LORD GOD MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS.  AND IN A MOMENT GOD THE MESSIAH WILL DESTROY ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST JERUSALEM.  IT IS WRITTEN IN ZECHARIAH 14.1-15.

WHEN IT HAPPENS, THIS GREAT PLAGUE FROM GOD THAT WILL DESTROY THE NATIONS WILL BE THE END OF THIS WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.  AND THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL WILL BEGIN IN THE GOD-GIVEN BORDERS OF ISRAEL FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER.  GENESIS 15.18-21

AND MESSIAH YESHUA WILL BE KING OVER ALL THE EARTH FROM JERUSALEM.

AS A POINT OF INFORMATION, THE LAW OF MOSES IS CALLED, THE LORD’S LAW, MY LAW, AS IN GOD’S LAW, THE LAW, THE BOOK OF THE LAW OF GOD, THE LAW OF TRUTH, THE LAW OF RIGHTEOUS, THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY (FROM SIN AND DEATH), AND THE LAW OF MOSES.

LET’S LOOK AT SOME SCRIPTURES IN THE OLD  TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT ABOUT GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT MIGHT OPEN YOUR EYES A LITTLE BIT.

EXODUS 13.9, EXODUS 16.4, DEUTERONOMY 4.44, JOSHUA 24.26, MALACHI 2.6, HEBREW BIBLE MALACHI 3.22, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MALACHI 4.4, MATTHEW 5.17, LUKE 2.23, LUKE 16.17, ROMANS 7.12, 25, ROMANS 9.31, JAMES 1.25, 1 JOHN 3.4

WHERE DOES IT SAY ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE THAT GOD ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES?  NO WHERE.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR ALL THE WORLD, FOR ALL HUMANITY.  AND THAT LAW IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  ROMANS 3.29-31

ISRAEL IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE SOME 2,567 TIMES.  AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, NOW KNOWN AS THE JEWISH PEOPLE, ARE ONE OF THE OLDEST PEOPLES ON EARTH.  WE ARE 4,000 YEARS OLD.  AND THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE.

THE FIRST TIME THE NAME JEW OR JEWISH IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN THE SYRIANS DROVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ELATH.  TODAY ELATH IS ELAT IN SOUTHERN ISRAEL ON THE RED SEA.  2 KINGS 16.6

THE HEBREW WORD FOR JEW OR JEWISH IS YEHUDI THAT MEANS PRAISER OF GOD.

ISRAEL, WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE EARTH GET THEMSELVES INTO TROUBLE, INTO WARS, CRIME, MURDERS, GREED, PAIN, HURRICANES, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES, FATAL SICKNESSES, AND ALL KINDS OF GRIEF BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.  BECAUSE THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DISOBEY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

HAD THE WORLD PAID ATTENTION TO THE LORD THEIR GOD AND OBEYED HIS LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS, THEY WOULD HAVE PEACE AS A RIVER, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS WOULD BE AS THE WAVES OF THE SEA.  ISAIAH 48.16-18

DEUTERONOMY 26.1  WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE.

YOU KNOW, AN INHERITANCE REMAINS WITH THOSE WHO INHERIT SOMETHING FOR AS LONG AS THEY LIVE, OR UNTIL THEY SELL IT TO SOMEONE ELSE.  THAT’S WHY GOD SAYS, THE LAND OF ISRAEL SHALL NOT BE SOLD FOREVER, FOR THE LAND IS MINE.  FOR YOU ARE STRANGERS AND TENANTS WITH ME.  LEVITICUS 25.23

GOD PROPHESIES THAT THE NAME ISRAEL, AND MANY JEWISH PEOPLE WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD AS THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD.  AND THAT IS FOREVER.

THE NEW EARTH IS HEAVEN THAT WILL BE CALLED THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM THAT WILL COME DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN PREPARED AS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND.  AND THAT WILL HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL.

THEREFORE GOD SAYS THAT MANY JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE NAME ISRAEL WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD FOREVER.

ISAIAH 66.22, REVELATION 21.1-5

BACK TO DEUTERONOMY 26. 1, 2, 3  WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, AND POSSESS IT, AND LIVE IN IT,

YOU SHALL THEN TAKE THE FIRST OF ALL THE FRUITS OF THE GROUND WHICH YOU SHALL BRING OF YOUR LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU, AND SHALL PUT IT IN A BASKET, AND SHALL GO TO THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD SHALL CHOOSE TO CAUSE HIS NAME TO DWELL THERE.  THAT WOULD BE THE TEMPLE.

AND YOU SHALL GO TO THE PRIEST WHOMEVER HE SHALL BE IN THOSE DAYS, AND SHALL SAY TO HIM, I DECLARE THIS DAY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD THAT I HAVE COME INTO THIS LAND WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO OUR FATHERS TO GIVE US.

IN VERSE 3, THE PERSON WITH THE TITHE IS TO SAY TO THE PRIEST OF THAT DAY, I PROFESS THIS DAY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD THAT I HAVE COME INTO THIS LAND, (THE LAND OF ISRAEL) WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO OUR FATHERS TO GIVE US.

THIS PAST MONDAY AT OUR SERVICE FOR THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES, WE DISCUSSED A SCRIPTURE THAT IS WORTH REPEATING.

ZECHARIAH 12.1  THE BURDEN OF THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR ISRAEL, SAITH THE LORD, WHO STRETCHES FORTH THE HEAVENS, AND LAYS THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

THE BURDEN OF THE WORD OF THE LORD IS SOMETHING SAID BY THE LORD.

THE WORD SPIRIT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD RUAKH THAT MEANS BREATH.  AND BREATH IS LIFE.  AND THAT BREATH AND LIFE IS GOD.  GOD GIVES EVERY HUMAN LIFE WHEN HE BREATHES THE SPIRIT OF LIFE INTO US AT BIRTH OR BEFORE BIRTH.  AND GOD FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

LET’S LOOK AT GENESIS 2.7  AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE, AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR FORMED, AS IN, THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN, IS YAH’STAHR.  THE SAME HEBREW WORD GOD USES IN ZECHARIAH 12.1 WHEN HE SAID, HE FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

GOD FORMED EVERY HUMAN BEING, MEANING THAT GOD SQUEEZES INTO SHAPE, MOLDS INTO FORM, AND DETERMINES.

GOD DETERMINES WHO WE ARE.  GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING ABOUT US.  GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING PEOPLE WILL DO, OR NOT DO.  EVEN THE FACT THAT GOD WAS PERFECTLY ABLE TO PROMISE ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB TO GIVE THEIR DESCENDANTS, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT WOULD BECOME ISRAEL, THE JEWISH HOMELAND FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION SOME 700 YEARS BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME ISRAEL.

BECAUSE GOD DETERMINES WHO AND WHAT EVERY PERSON WILL BE.  AND GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING EVERY HUMAN WILL DO, OR NOT DO.

I WAS READING THE STORY OF RUTH THE OTHER DAY.  NAOMI AND HER HUSBAND, AND THEIR TWO SONS WENT TO LIVE IN MOAB BECAUSE OF A FAMINE IN ISRAEL.  MOAB WOULD BE IN CURRENT-DAY JORDAN.

NAOMI’S HUSBAND DIED.  THEN HER TWO SONS WHO WERE MARRIED TO MOABITE WOMEN DIED.  ONE OF NAOMI’S DAUGHTER’S-IN-LAW WAS RUTH.

AND NATURALLY NAOMI WAS CRUSHED AS WERE HER TWO DAUGHTERS-IN-LAW.  BUT GOD DOES THINGS FOR HIS PURPOSE, AND FOR OUR GOOD.

GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING.

AND NAOMI BROUGHT RUTH TO BETHLEHEM-JUDAH IN ISRAEL.  HER OTHER DAUGHTER-IN-LAW REMAINED IN MOAB.

AND RUTH ENDS UP MARRYING BOAZ, A JEWISH MAN FROM BETHLEHEM.  IN YEARS TO COME, BOAZ BECAME THE GREAT GRANDFATHER OF KING DAVID, AND AN ANCESTOR OF MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND RUTH, THE WIFE OF BOAZ BECAME THE GREAT GRANDMOTHER OF KING DAVID.  AND THE ANCESTOR OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

GOD DETERMINED THAT ALSO FOR HIS PURPOSE.  EVEN THOUGH THREE PEOPLE HAD TO DIE.  KING DAVID IS FROM BETHLEHEM, AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA MUST BE A DESCENDANT OF KING DAVID, AND MESSIAH MUST BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM.

RUTH 4.13-22, MATTHEW 1.1-6, JEREMIAH 23.5, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, ROMANS 8.28

LOOK BACK ON YOUR LIVES TO THIS DAY.  YOU PERHAPS WENT THROUGH SOME DIFFICULT TIMES BUT NOW YOU ARE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD, INHERITING ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

GOD DETERMINED THAT FOR YOU.

GENESIS 15.18-21, GENESIS 17.8, GENESIS 26.1-5, GENESIS 35.9-13, ISAIAH 46.9-11

SO, WILL PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP BE IMPEACHED OUT OF OFFICE, OR WILL HE REMAIN PRESIDENT FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS?  ASK GOD.  GOD DETERMINED THAT A LONG TIME AGO.  GOD PUT DONALD TRUMP IN OFFICE AS GOD DOES EVERY LEADER OF ALL THE NATIONS, PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.  AND GOD DETERMINES WHEN HE WILL TAKE THEM OUT OF OFFICE AT HIS GOOD TIME.

JEREMIAH 27.4, 5, DANIEL 4.17, 32, 35, DANIEL 5.21

AND GOD DETERMINED BEFORE THE CREATION THAT HE WOULD GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE THE JEWISH HOMELAND ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.

THEREFORE GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING BECAUSE GOD FORMS AND DETERMINES THE LIFE OF EVERYONE ON EARTH.  AND GOD DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS IN THE HEAVENS, AND HE DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN.

GOD BREATHES LIFE INTO EVERY HUMAN BEING AND EVERY LIVING CREATURE AND EVERY LIVING THING.  THE LIFE WE BREATHE IS GOD.  GOD LIVES IN US.  GOD LIVES IN EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING, AND GOD LIVES IN EVERY LIVING THING, AND GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING, ON EARTH, IN THE HEAVENS, AND IN HEAVEN.

A DAY WITH MESSIAH YESHUA ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

Shalom,

Our teaching this morning will come from The New Testament from John 7:37-40.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, A DAY WITH MESSIAH YESHUA ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

AND WITH THAT SAID LET’S READ JOHN 7.37-40

JOHN 7.37  IN THE LAST DAY, THE EIGHTH DAY, THAT GREAT DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, YESHUA THE MESSIAH STOOD, AND LOUDLY SPOKE, SAYING, IF ANYONE THIRSTS LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.

JOHN 7.2  CONFIRMS THAT IT IS THE TIME OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

AND JOHN 7.37 IS THE EIGHTH DAY, THE GREAT DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES THAT THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY COMMANDS US TO OBSERVE IN LEVITICUS 23.33-43.

AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, MESSIAH SAID TO THE CROWD OF JEWISH PEOPLE AROUND HIM, IF ANYONE THIRSTS, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.

THIS IS A PARABLE.  AND MESSIAH IS SPEAKING ABOUT BEING THIRSTY FOR THE WORD OF GOD.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON WHO COMES TO MESSIAH TO DRINK IS THE PERSON WHO IS UNIQUE.  A PERSON WHO IS THIRSTY FOR THE WORD OF GOD.  A PERSON WHO HAS A GREAT DESIRE TO KNOW GOD AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  A PERSON WHO WANTS TO WALK WITH GOD, AND SERVE HIM, AND OBEY HIM.  A PERSON WHO SEEKS THE TRUTH OF GOD FROM EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON FOR GOD FINDS THE TRUTH OF GOD IN THE BIBLE FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH, THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON WHO DILIGENTLY SEEKS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, FINDS THE TRUTH.  THE TRUTH THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE ONE AND ONLY GOD.

AND THE FOLLOWERS OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY BELIEVE EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND WE LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FOR OUR GOOD, AND FOR OUR CHILDRENS’ GOOD.

AND HERE, IN ISRAEL, ON THE EIGHTH AND GREAT DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS STANDING BEFORE THESE JEWISH PEOPLE SPEAKING TO THEM FACE TO FACE.  SPEAKING THE MIGHTY WORD OF GOD.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT.

AND CERTAIN OF THESE JEWISH PEOPLE AND PERHAPS SOME NON JEWISH PEOPLE AS WELL UNDERSTOOD WHAT MESSIAH MEANT WHEN HE SAID, IF ANYONE THIRSTS, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.  THEY KNEW THAT WHAT THEY WOULD DRINK FROM THE LORD IS HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT IS LIFE, AND HEALTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THEY MIGHT HAVE REMEMBERED THE WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, WHEN HE SAID, YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND OBEY HIS VOICE, AND CLING TO HIM.  FOR HE IS YOUR LIFE AND THE LENGTH OF YOUR DAYS TO LIVE ON THE LAND WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS, TO ABRAHAM, TO ISAAC, AND TO JACOB, TO GIVE IT TO THEM.  DEUTERONOMY 30.20

I BELIEVE THAT CERTAIN OF THESE JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT MESSIAH YESHUA WAS GOD ALMIGHTY.  THAT GOD REVEALED THAT TO THEM EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NO NEW TESTAMENT WRITTEN AT THE TIME.

PERHAPS THROUGH THE PROPHESY OF DANIEL CHAPTER 9.20-27, THAT PREDICTS THE EXACT TIME MESSIAH YESHUA WOULD COME THE FIRST TIME TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL.  AND THAT WAS THE TIME.

OR ISAIAH 9.5 IN THE HEBREW BIBLE, AND NOW ISAIAH 9.6 IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE, THAT THE NAME OF A UNIQUE SON GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE.  AND HE, MESSIAH YESHUA, IS THAT UNIQUE SON, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

HOWEVER GOD REVEALED IT TO THEM, HOWEVER GOD OPENED THEIR EYES OF UNDERSTANDING, CERTAIN JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE, THEN AND TODAY KNOW THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  AND HE IS THEIR LIFE, AND OUR LIFE FOR A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

BECAUSE GOD IS EMPHATIC IN HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.

THAT GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW, THE TORAH, CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES THAT CAN NEVER BE ABOLISHED OR CHANGED BUT REMAINS FOREVER THROUGHOUT ETERNITY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL PEOPLES FOR OUR GOOD.

AND THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOURISHMENT AND LIFE.  AND WHERE GOD’S LAW IS ABOLISHED, THERE IS EMPTINESS.

NOT ONE WORD SPOKEN BY GOD AND WRITTEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT STRAYS FROM GOD’S TEACHINGS IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND NOT ONE WORD SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS ADDED TO THE LAW OF MOSES OR SUBTRACTED FROM THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE NEW TESTAMENT ALONG WITH TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT IS PERFECT WHEN SEEN CLEARLY FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

AND BECAUSE GOD FORBIDS ANIMAL SACRIFICES WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, WHO IS JEHOVAH, MADE HIMSELF A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF THE SON OF GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA, TO BE AN OFFERING FOR OUR SINS BY HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD ON A ROMAN CROSS IN JERUSALEM TO BE OUR ATONEMENT.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT NEVER ENDS OR CHANGES.  AND GOD TEACHES US THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD DOES MAN LIVE.

THEREFORE THE DISCIPLES OF MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU AND ME,  JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED BY GOD TO LIVE OUR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THAT IS LIFE.  A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

EXODUS 13.9, LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11, DEUTERONOMY 4.2, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, JOSHUA 8.31, 34, 1 CHRONICLES 16.40, NEHEMIAH 8.8, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53, PSALM 22.1, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 27.46, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25

MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD DOES NOT REPLACE THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DOES MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD REPLACE THE OLD TESTAMENT.  THAT IS ANTI-GOD TEACHING.

MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR ATONEMENT.  TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS.  THOSE ARE MESSIAH’S WORDS SPOKEN IN MATTHEW 26.28.

SO IN JOHN CHAPTER 7.37-40, A WHOLE LOT OF JEWISH PEOPLE AND PERHAPS SOME NON JEWISH PEOPLE WERE STANDING IN FRONT OF GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THEIR JEWISH MESSIAH.  SEEING GOD AND LISTENING TO THE LORD THEIR GOD TEACH ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

JOHN 7.38  AND MESSIAH SAID TO THE PEOPLE, HE THAT BELIEVES ON ME AS THE SCRIPTURE HAS SAID, OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER.

OUT OF GOD FLOWS LIVING WATERS, THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT IS LIFE.

BUT GOD HAS A BLUEPRINT TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT SO THAT OUT OF YOUR BELLY THE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL FLOW OUT OF YOU.

YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA BY OBEYING EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

ACTS 5.32, ISAIAH 12.1-3, ISAIAH 44.1-3, ISAIAH 55.1-3

JOHN 7.39  BUT THIS HE SPOKE OF THE SPIRIT WHICH THEY THAT BELIEVE ON HIM SHOULD RECEIVE.  FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS NOT YET GIVEN BECAUSE YESHUA WAS NOT YET GLORIFIED.  THAT IS TO SAY, MESSIAH WAS NOT YET RAISED AND GLORIOUS IN HEAVEN.

BELIEVING IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS NOT BELIEVING IN HIM AND LIVING A LIFE OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY DISOBEYING GOD’S LAW.  BELIEVING IN MESSIAH YESHUA MEANS THAT YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU BELIEVE THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY AS THE BIBLE TEACHES.

LET’S RETURN TO ACTS 5.32 THAT EXPLAINS THAT WE RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT BY OBEYING GOD.

SO I LOOKED UP THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY AS IN, GOD HAS GIVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THEM WHO OBEY HIM.  AND THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY IS PEITHARCHEO IN THIS VERSE THAT MEANS, TO BE PERSUADED BY A RULER.  THAT RULER IS GOD.  AND TO SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY.  THAT AUTHORITY IS GOD.  AND TO CONFORM TO ADVICE.  ADVICE IS COUNSEL.  AND THE ADVICE AND COUNSEL FROM GOD IS TO OBEY GOD.  OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY ALSO MEANS OBEY.  OBEY GOD.  OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES AND YOU WILL RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

JOHN 14.21-24  IN VERSE 23, THE WORD WE IS GOD.  THE ONE GOD WHO IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO COMES INTO US AND MAKES HIS HOME IN US.

JOHN 7.40  MANY OF THE PEOPLE WHEN THEY HEARD THE WORDS OF MESSIAH, SAID, OF A TRUTH THIS IS THE PROPHET.

AND THEY WERE RIGHT.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE PROPHET PROPHESIED BY GOD IN DEUTERONOMY 18.15 THAT READS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOU OF YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME (MOSES).  TO HIM SHALL YOU LISTEN TO AND OBEY.

AND YES, MESSIAH YESHUA IS LIKE MOSES IN MANY WAYS.

BOTH ARE JEWISH.  BOTH ARE PROPHETS, BOTH DID MIRACLES.  THE MIRACLES THAT MOSES DID WERE BY GOD.  THE MIRACLES THAT MESSIAH DID WERE ALSO BY GOD.  BUT MESSIAH IS GOD.

MOSES AND MESSIAH YESHUA WERE BOTH DELIVERERS.  MOSES DELIVERED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF 400 YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  OF COURSE MOSES COULD NOT HAVE DONE SUCH AN IMPOSSIBLE FEAT IF NOT BY THE HAND OF GOD.

AND MESSIAH YESHUA DELIVERS US FROM SIN BY HIS ATONING DEATH.

BOTH MESSIAH AND MOSES WERE KINGS OF ISRAEL.  MOSES IN HIS DAY WAS LIKE THE KING OF ISRAEL DURING THE EXODUS.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS ALWAYS THE KING OF ISRAEL.

BOTH MESSIAH YESHUA AND MOSES ARE LAW GIVERS.  MESSIAH WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY GAVE HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF GOD TO MOSES, FACE TO FACE.

AND MOSES GAVE GOD’S LAW TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO ALL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE FOR ALL MANKIND TO KNOW GOD AND LIVE BY GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS FOR THEIR GOOD.

BOTH MOSES AND MESSIAH YESHUA WERE AND ARE HATED.

MOSES WAS CHALLENGED FROM TIME TO TIME BY CERTAIN OF HIS PEOPLE BECAUSE GOD APPOINTED MOSES AND NOT THEM TO LEAD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND.  THAT IS HATRED OF GOD.  THEY CAME AGAINST THE ANOINTED OF GOD.  

MESSIAH YESHUA IS HATED BY A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE.

MANY PEOPLE SIMPLY DO NOT BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS REJECTING GOD, AND THAT IS HATE.

AND MOST PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA BELIEVE MESSIAH IS ANOTHER GOD, THE SECOND GOD OF THE GODHEAD.  NOT THE ONE GOD OF CREATION.  THAT TOO IS HATRED, REJECTING GOD.

AND MOST PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA DO NOT OBEY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  THEY DO NOT OBEY HIS SPOKEN WORDS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT GOD’S LAW IS ABOLISHED.  THAT IS HATRED OF GOD FOR DISOBEYING HIM.

AND OF A TRUTH MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE PROPHET SPOKEN OF BY GOD TO MOSES IN THE WILDERNESS.

BUT HE IS MORE THAN A PROPHET.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND SO MUCH MORE.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE ALMIGHTY GOD WHO SAYS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD THE LORD IS ONE.

AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT.

AND THESE WORDS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY SHALL BE UPON YOUR HEART.

AND YOU SHALL TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY TO YOUR CHILDREN.  AND YOU SHALL TALK OF THEM WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE, WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY, AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN, AND WHEN YOU RISE UP.

AND YOU SHALL BIND THEM FOR A SIGN UPON YOUR HAND, AND THEY SHALL BE FRONTLETS BETWEEN YOUR EYES.

AND YOU SHALL WRITE THEM ON THE DOORPOSTS OF YOUR HOUSE, AND ON YOUR GATES.

EXODUS 2.1-10, EXODUS 25.21-22, DEUTERONOMY 6.4-9, DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, ISAIAH 5.24, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.15, ISAIAH 44.6, ISAIAH 49.7, ZECHARIAH 14.9, MATTHEW 1.1, JOHN 7.7, JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9,

SO WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES?

IN LEVITICUS 23.33-43 IT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WHO SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING,

SPEAK TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SAYING, THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH SHALL BE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FOR SEVEN DAYS TO THE LORD.

ON THE FIRST DAY SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING. YOU SHALL DO NO WORK OF ANY KIND.

SEVEN DAYS YOU SHALL OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  ON THE EIGHTH DAY SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  IT IS A SOLEMN ASSEMBLY.  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK OF ANY KIND.

THESE ARE THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, MESSIAH SAID TO MOSES, WHICH YOU SHALL PROCLAIM TO BE HOLY GATHERINGS, TO OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  A BURNT OFFERING, AND A GRAIN OFFERING, A SACRIFICE, AND DRINK OFFERINGS.  EVERYTHING UPON IT’S DAY.

BESIDE THE SABBATHS OF THE LORD, MESSIAH SAID, AND BESIDE YOUR GIFTS, AND BESIDE ALL YOUR VOWS, AND BESIDE ALL YOUR FREEWILL OFFERINGS WHICH YOU GIVE TO THE LORD.

ALSO IN THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH WHEN YOU HAVE GATHERED IN THE FRUIT OF THE LAND, YOU SHALL KEEP A FEAST TO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS.  ON THE FIRST DAY SHALL BE A SABBATH, AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY SHALL BE A SABBATH.

AND YOU SHALL TAKE TO YOURSELVES ON THE FIRST DAY THE FRUIT OF MAJESTIC TREES, PALM BRANCHES, AND BOUGHS OF OAK TREES, AND WILLOWS OF THE BROOK.  AND YOU SHALL REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD SEVEN DAYS 

AND MESSIAH SAID TO MOSES, AND YOU SHALL KEEP IT A FEAST TO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS IN THE YEAR.  IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOREVER IN YOUR GENERATIONS.  YOU SHALL CELEBRATE IT IN THE SEVENTH MONTH.

YOU SHALL LIVE IN BOOTHS SEVEN DAYS.  ALL THAT ARE BORN IN ISRAEL SHALL LIVE IN BOOTHS.

THAT YOUR GENERATIONS SHALL KNOW THAT I MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL LIVE IN BOOTHS WHEN I BROUGHT THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND MOSES DECLARED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.  THE FEASTS OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, AND LOVE, AND REJOICING IN THE TRUTH, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

Shalom,

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS TOMORROW, SUNDAY AT SUNDOWN THROUGH MONDAY AT SUNDOWN.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, AND LOVE, AND REJOICING IN THE TRUTH, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

AND OUR MESSAGE WILL START FROM LEVITICUS 23.33-44 WHERE GOD’S LAWS FOR SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES ARE WRITTEN.

SO WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.33-44.

GOD’S LAWS FOR SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES ARE;

34/  THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FALLS ON THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH FOR SEVEN DAYS.

35/  ON THE FIRST DAY IS A HOLY GATHERING.  MEANING, GOD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO ATTEND A SERVICE DEDICATED TO THE LORD ON THE FIRST DAY OF TABERNACLES.

AND NO WORK IS TO BE DONE ON THE FIRST DAY OF TABERNACLES.

36/  SEVEN DAYS YOU SHALL BRING AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD. 

GOD SPOKE THESE LAWS INTO EXISTENCE DURING TABERNACLE TIMES SOME 3,400 YEARS AGO WHEN THE OFFERING FOR ATONEMENT WAS THE SACRIFICE OF A CLEAN ANIMAL ON THE TABERNACLE ALTAR.  AND LATER THE ANIMALS WERE SACRIFICED ON THE ALTARS OF THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES FOR ATONEMENT.  ALWAYS FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

BUT GOD FORBIDS ALL SACRIFICES WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  TODAY THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.

WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, OUR OFFERING TO THE LORD FOR ATONEMENT IS FAITH IN MAHSHIAKH, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  AND FAITH IN MESSIAH MUST ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED BY A LIFE OF OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE.  THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE FOR ATONEMENT BUT FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, AND OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION. 

GOD REQUIRES OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, FOREVER.  FOR GOD SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

AND GOD’S SPOKEN WORD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

LEVITICUS 17.8,9,11, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, PSALM 22, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 26.27-28, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25  

GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.  JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE WITHOUT ATONEMENT, THE LAW OF GOD, WHICH IS THE LAW OF MOSES, REQUIRES THOSE PEOPLE TO MAKE ATONEMENT DURING HIS FESTIVAL OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES IS A HOLY GATHERING TO THE LORD.  AND GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS, OR MAKE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

BY HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MAHSHIAKH, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, AND LIVING YOUR LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL REWARD YOU WITH A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT IS AN ASSEMBLY AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES.

39/  THE FIRST AND EIGHTH DAYS OF TABERNACLES ARE SABBATHS.

40/  SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, IS A TIME TO REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD SEVEN DAYS.

41  GOD’S LAWS FOR TABERNACLES ARE A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT JEWISH GENERATIONS THAT IS FOREVER.  AND IT SHALL BE CELEBRATED IN THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH.  ISAIAH 66.22

42-43/  ALL WHO ARE BORN IN ISRAEL MUST DWELL IN BOOTHS FOR SEVEN DAYS SO THAT YOUR GENERATIONS MAY KNOW THAT GOD MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DWELL IN BOOTHS WHEN HE BROUGHT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, SAYS THE LORD.

SOME BIBLES SAY THAT THE FEASTS OF THE LORD ARE JEW’S FEASTS.  THAT IS WRONG AND POORLY SAID.  BETTER SAID, JEWISH FEASTS.  BUT THE FEASTS OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23 ARE ALWAYS THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.

JEWISH PEOPLE CALL THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, JEWISH HOLIDAYS.  PERHAPS BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND FEW NON JEWISH PEOPLE OBSERVE GOD’S FESTIVALS WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD DOES NOT.

AND SINCE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS A TIME TO REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD, I THOUGHT THAT WE’LL HAVE A WORD ON LOVE WHILE WE REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD OUR GOD.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.1  EVEN THOUGH YOU AND I MIGHT SPEAK MANY LANGUAGES, EVEN THE LANGUAGE OF ANGELS, IF WE DO NOT HAVE LOVE WE SOUND LIKE ONE BIG NOISE.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.2  EVEN IF YOU AND I HAVE THE GIFT OF PROPHESY AND UNDERSTAND ALL MYSTERIES AND KNOWLEDGE, EVEN THE MYSTERIES AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND HAVE FAITH TO MOVE MOUNTAINS, BUT WE HAVE NO LOVE, WE ARE NOTHING.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.3  AND THOUGH YOU AND I MIGHT GIVE EVERYTHING WE OWN TO FEED THE POOR, AND WE GIVE OUR BODY TO BE BURNED, BUT DO NOT HAVE LOVE, IT PROFITS US NOTHING.

HERE IS WHAT LOVE IS;

1 CORINTHIANS 13.4  LOVE SUFFERS LONG.  LOVE HAS PATIENCE AND ENDURANCE.  ENDURANCE IS PERSEVERING THROUGH PAIN, HARDSHIP,  AND ADVERSITY.  AND LOVE IS KIND.

LOVE DOES NOT ENVY ANYONE.  ENVY RESENTS ANOTHER’S SUCCESS, OR POSSESSIONS, OR A DESIRE TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT ANOTHER PERSON HAS.  ENVY IS JEALOUSY, AND LOVE IS NOT ENVIOUS OR JEALOUS.

AND LOVE DOES NOT VAUNT ITSELF AND IS NOT PUFFED UP.  THAT IS TO SAY THAT LOVE DOES NOT BOAST OR BRAG.  LOVE IS NOT INFLATED WITH PRIDE OR VANITY.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.5  LOVE DOES NOT BEHAVE INDECENTLY.  THAT IS TO SAY, LOVE IS NOT OBSCENE, OR DIRTY, OR RUDE, OR COARSE, OR VULGAR.  AND LOVE DOES NOT SEEK HER OWN.  YOU DON’T PUT YOURSELF FIRST.  BUT RATHER YOU HAVE EMPATHY FOR OTHERS.  YOU UNDERSTAND AND SHARE THE FEELINGS OF OTHERS.

AND LOVE IS NOT EASILY PROVOKED.  THAT IS, LOVE IS NOT EASILY INCITED TO ANGER, DOES NOT RAGE.  AND LOVE NEVER THINKS EVIL.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.6  LOVE NEVER REJOICES IN SIN, BUT RATHER REJOICES IN THE TRUTH. 

AND THE TRUTH IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE HEBREW FOR “THE LAW OF GOD” IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, “TORAT HA ELOHIM.”  THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IN THIS SCRIPTURE IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS, G-O-D-S.  NOT THAT THERE ARE MANY GODS, OR A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT GODS.  THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS ELOHIM. 

GOD ALMIGHTY FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WITH HIS SPIRIT. 

AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER, THE SON, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, OFTEN THE ANGEL OF GOD, THE ANGEL OF THE LORD AND SO MUCH MORE.  JEREMIAH 23.24

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD, ELOHIM.

THE LAW OF GOD IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND TORAH IS THE LAW OF MOSES, THE LAW OF THE LORD.

AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS LAW, TORAH, THAT NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS. 

AND TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS GOOD.  ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT.

1 JOHN 5.3 

AND TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS LIVED BY AND TAUGHT BY GOD ALMIGHTY, AND MESSIAH YESHUA, AND THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD BECAUSE ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  THEY ARE ELOHIM, THE GIVER OF THE LAW TO ALL MANKIND.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR ALL HUMANITY, AND THAT LAW IS THE LAW OF GOD, THE LAW OF MOSES.  NEHEMIAH 8.8

DO YOU REALIZE THAT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD?  GOD’S LAWS, HIS TEACHINGS, HIS INSTRUCTIONS, HIS WISDOM, AND SO MUCH MORE THAT ARE THE TRUTH FOR ALL MANKIND TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. 

AND GOD’S SPOKEN WORD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS. 

IT IS FOOLISHNESS TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS OR ANYBODY ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.  NO ONE CAN DO THAT.  THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER. ISAIAH 40.8

ARE YOU BEING TAUGHT THE TRUTH OF GOD?

SO LOVE REJOICES IN THE TRUTH.  AND THE TRUTH IS THE LAW OF GOD, THAT IS THE LAW OF THE LORD, AND ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THEREFORE LOVE REJOICES IN THE TRUTH.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.7  LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, BELIEVES ALL THINGS, HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS.

IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THIS WORD BEARS, AS IN LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, MEANS TO COVER WITH SILENCE.  THEREFORE LOVE ENDURES ALL THINGS PATIENTLY IN SILENCE.  AND LOVE SUFFERS ALL THINGS PATIENTLY IN SILENCE.  WE PERSEVERE PATIENTLY.  WE KEEP ON KEEPING ON WITH PATIENCE.

AND LOVE BELIEVES ALL THINGS. 

I’VE GOT TO TELL YOU, I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.  BELIEVING ALL THINGS THAT WE KNOW ARE NOT TRUTH?  ESPECIALLY WHEN LIES ARE TOLD AND TAUGHT ABOUT GOD.  I DON’T THINK SO.

I LOOKED UP THE GREEK WORD FOR “ALL THINGS.”  AND PAS IS THE GREEK WORD THAT MEANS, “ALL, ANY, EVERY, ALWAYS.”  I DON’T THINK SO.

I KNOW THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS TRUTH.  AND I BELIEVE THAT ALL THE WRITERS OF THE BIBLE WROTE TRUTH.  BUT SOMETHING MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN THE TRANSLATION FROM THE HEBREW.

AND LOVE HOPES ALL THINGS.  THE WORD HOPE COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD TIK’VAH THAT MEANS EXPECT.  LOVE THEREFORE HOPES ALL THINGS, AND EXPECTS ALL THINGS.

GOD SAYS, BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES.  THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT.

ISAIAH 40.31

1 CORINTHIANS 13.8  LOVE NEVER FAILS, BUT WHERE THERE ARE PROPHESIES, THEY SHALL FAIL.  MEANING, PROPHESIES WILL CEASE TO EXIST IN ETERNITY BECAUSE ALL PROPHESIES WILL HAVE BEEN FULFILLED.

TONGUES OR LANGUAGES WILL CEASE BECAUSE I ASSUME WE WILL ALL BE SPEAKING ONE AND THE SAME LANGUAGE IN HEAVEN.  THE SAME LANGUAGE GOD WILL BE SPEAKING.  AND I THINK THAT IS HEBREW.

KNOWLEDGE WILL VANISH AWAY.  I’M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND THIS. I’M SURE WE WILL HAVE GREAT KNOWLEDGE IN HEAVEN.  BUT PERHAPS EARTHLY KNOWLEDGE WILL VANISH BECAUSE WE WILL HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HEAVENLY. 

COME TO THINK OF IT, THERE’S A WHOLE LOT OF EARTHLY KNOWLEDGE THAT SHOULD DISAPPEAR.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.9-10  FOR WE KNOW IN PART AND WE PROPHESY IN PART.

BUT WHEN THAT WHICH IS PERFECT, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY RETURNS, THEN THAT WHICH IS IN PART, THE LORD WHOM WE DO NOT KNOW FULLY, WE WILL KNOW FACE TO FACE.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.11  WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE SPOKE AS CHILDREN, WE UNDERSTOOD AS CHILDREN, WE THOUGHT AS CHILDREN.  BUT WHEN WE BECAME GODLY ADULTS WE PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.12  FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY.  THAT IS, WE DO NOT FULLY SEE GOD, NOR DO WE FULLY KNOW GOD.  BUT WHEN THE LORD RETURNS, YOU WILL BE FACE TO FACE WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  SO NOW YOU KNOW IN PART, BUT THEN YOU WILL KNOW GOD EVEN AS GOD KNOWS YOU.  YOU WILL KNOW GOD PERFECTLY.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.13  AND NOW THERE ARE FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE.  THESE THREE.  BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.

I WILL ADD TO THAT.  LOVE IS MOST IMPORTANT OF THE THREE, BUT FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, AND A LIFE OF OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, WITH LOVE, IS THE GREATEST OF ALL IN THE EYES OF GOD.

WHAT ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT HE SAYS?

SHALOM,

OUR TEACHING ABOUT YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WILL COME FROM GOD’S SPOKEN WORDS IN LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHAT ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT HE SAYS?

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

LEVITICUS 23.26-27  THE FOLLOWING WORDS ARE FROM GOD ALMIGHTY, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT ARE IN THEM.  WHO FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WITH HIS SPIRIT WHO IS ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE SAVIOR.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.   BEFORE GOD THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED. NEITHER SHALL THERE BE AFTER HIM.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING, ALSO ON THE TENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.  IT SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU.  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, AND OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE.

THUS ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

THIS IS THE DAY GOD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.  SIN IS BREAKING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND IF THEY DO NOT HAVE ATONEMENT, GOD REQUIRES THEM TO MAKE ATONEMENT ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

IN THE DAYS OF THE TABERNACLE AND THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES, ATONEMENT WAS MADE BY THE SHED BLOOD OF A CLEAN ANIMAL SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR OF THE TABERNACLE OR THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES.

HOWEVER GOD FORBIDS ANIMAL SACRIFICES OF ANY KIND INCLUDING SACRIFICES FOR ATONEMENT WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM TODAY.

TODAY, ATONEMENT IS MADE BY THE DEATH OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY AS A HUMAN BEING, AND HIS SHED BLOOD. 

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE.

ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.10, JEREMIAH 31.31-34, MATTHEW 26.28

ATONEMENT TODAY FOR ALL MANKIND COMES BY NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE BUT BY THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA AS A HUMAN BEING WHO IS HA SHEM GOD ALMIGHTY.

A HOLY GATHERING, OR A HOLY CONVOCATION MUST BE HELD, AND GOD’S PEOPLE SHOULD ATTEND A SERVICE TO THE LORD ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS.  THE WORD AFFLICT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD “AH’NAH” THAT MEANS, IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TO “HUMBLE YOURSELF” BY SUBMITTING TO GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS. 

“AFFLICT FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH” DOES NOT MEAN TO FAST.

FASTING IS NOT A COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD ON YOM KIPPUR, BUT TO HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO THE LORD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS; THAT IS A COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

EXODUS 23.22,25, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, DEUTERONOMY 32.46-47, JOSHUA 1.7-9,  JOB 23.12, PSALM 119, JEREMIAH 15.16, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 14.15

JOHN 14.15  MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY

OFFERING AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD IN THE DAYS OF THE TABERNACLE AND THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES WAS THE ONLY MEANS OF MAKING ATONEMENT.

BUT TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD FOR ATONEMENT OR ANY OTHER ANIMAL SACRIFICE IS FORBIDDEN BY THE LORD.

FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF MAKING ATONEMENT FOR YOU, HA SHEM, GOD ALMIGHTY MADE HIMSELF A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA 2,000 YEARS AGO IN JERUSALEM TO GIVE HIS LIFE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD TO MAKE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS YOUR ATONEMENT.

AND FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOUL.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  TODAY, YESTERDAY, AND FOREVER.

LEVITICUS 1.1-4, LEVITICUS 17.8-9,11, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 26.28

LEVITICUS 23.28  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK IN THAT SAME DAY, FOR IT IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOU BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

GOD REQUIRES YOU TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOURSELF ON YOM KIPPUR.  AND TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO MAKE ATONEMENT, AND THAT IS BY THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF GOD COMING TO ISRAEL IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA 2,000 YEARS AGO, TO BE AN OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS, TO BE YOUR ATONEMENT AFTER THE SECOND TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED BY THE ROMANS IN 70 CE / AD.  EVEN TO THIS DAY.

WHY IS IT SO URGENT TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA?  BECAUSE GOD SAYS, WHOSOEVER HAS SINNED AGAINST ME, I WILL BLOT FROM MY BOOK OF LIFE, AND CAST THEM INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. 

SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.

THOSE WHO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS IN MESSIAH YESHUA, AND HUMBLE THEMSELVES TO THE LORD THEIR GOD, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.

EXODUS 32.33, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 51.7, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 51.5, REVELATION 20.15, REVELATION 21.27, 1 JOHN 3.4

LEVITICUS 23.29 FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFFLICTED IN THAT DAY, OR BETTER READ, THOSE WHO DO NOT HUMBLE THEMSELVES IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, GOD SAYS, THEY SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM THEIR PEOPLE.  

THE HEBREW FOR, SHALL BE CUT OFF, IS VAY’NEEKH’R’TAH, MEANING, SHALL BE DESTROYED.  THAT IS WHY IT IS SO VITAL TO HAVE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

LEVITICUS 23.30-31 AND THE PERSON WHO DOES ANY WORK DURING YOM KIPPUR, GOD SAYS, HE WILL DESTROY FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  THIS IS A STATUTE FOREVER.

THAT IS WHY PEOPLE GET THEMSELVES IN TROUBLE, BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  READ THE BIBLE, IT’S ALL EXPLAINED THERE.

LEVITICUS 23.32  THE DAY OF ATONEMENT IS A SABBATH OF REST FOR YOU, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS.  BETTER READ, YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOURSELVES BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS TORAH BECAUSE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES DESCRIBES ATONEMENT, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT.

EXODUS 29.36, LEVITICUS 16.6, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, ETC., LEVITICUS 17.11, MATTHEW 26.27-28

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE ABOUT OUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS HA SHEM ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CAME TO ISRAEL SOME 2,000 YEARS AGO TO FULFILL THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHESIES OF THE COMING MESSIAH.  TO GIVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE TO MAKE ATONEMENT.  FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  AND IT IS MESSIAH’S BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOU.

THOSE ARE THE WORDS OF HA SHEM.  AND THOSE WORDS APPLY TODAY AS THEY DID 3,400 YEARS AGO. LEVITICUS 17.11, ISAIAH 40.8 

IN SUMMARY, THESE ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR

THE TENTH DAY OF 7TH HEBREW MONTH IS YOM KIPPUR.

ON THE DAY OF YOM KIPPUR, ATTEND A SERVICE FOR THE LORD 

HUMBLE YOURSELF BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOURSELF THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  MESSIHA IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT WHOSE BLOOD WAS SHED FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS.

DO NOT WORK ON YOM KIPPUR.

WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT GOD SAYS?

DEUTERONOMY 8.3 READS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

YESHUA THE MESSIAH REPEATED THOSE WORDS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IN MATTHEW 4.4 AND LUKE 4.4,

THEREFORE TO RECEIVE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS, DO AS GOD SAID TO JOSHUA.  ONLY BE STRONG AND VERY COURAGEOUS TO OBSERVE TO DO ACCORDING TO ALL THE TORAH, ALL THE LAW OF MOSES.  DO NOT TURN FROM IT TO THE RIGHT OR TO THE LEFT SO THAT YOU WILL PROSPER IN YOUR WAY.  AND THEN YOU SHALL SUCCEED.  FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.

AND THOSE WHO ARE WRITTEN IN GOD’S BOOK OF LIFE BECAUSE YOU HAVE ATONEMENT IN YOUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOU WILL INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

THEREFORE WHEN YOU DO WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO, AND YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES LIVING BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU WILL RECEIVE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS. 

YOUR BLESSINGS WILL BE GREAT ON EARTH.   GOD WILL HAVE YOU TO PROSPER IN YOUR WAY, AND YOU WILL SUCCEED, AND HAVE GOOD HEALTH.  AND GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.  AND THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE MESSIAH YESHUA

JOSHUA 1.7-9, ISAIAH 51.1-3, DANIEL 12.1-3, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 5.3, REVELATION 21.1-27, REVELATION 22.1

WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

SHALOM,

THIS COMING TUESDAY AT SUNDOWN THROUGH WEDNESDAY AT SUNDOWN IS YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

AND GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR TEACHING IS, WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.26-32, GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

VERSE 26  AND THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING,

VERSE 27  ALSO ON THE TENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH IS A DAY OF ATONEMENT.  IT SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, AND OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE UNTO THE LORD.

VERSE 28  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK IN THAT SAME DAY, FOR IT IS A DAY OF ATONEMENT TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOU BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

VERSE 29  FOR ANY PERSON WHO IS NOT AFFLICTED IN THAT SAME DAY, THIS PERSON SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.

VERSE 30  AND ANY PERSON WHO DOES ANY WORK IN THIS SAME DAY, I SHALL DESTROY THAT PERSON FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.

VERSE 31  YOU SHALL DO NO MANNER OF WORK.  IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS IN ALL YOUR DWELLINGS.

VERSE 32  IT IS TO YOU A SABBATH OF REST, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS IN THE NINTH DAY OF THE MONTH AT EVENING, FROM EVENING TO EVENING YOU SHALL CELEBRATE YOUR SABBATH.

SO THE QUESTION IS, WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEANS, HUMBLE, OR HUMBLE YOURSELF OR AFFLICT, AFFLICTED OR AFFLICTION.

HUMBLE YOURSELF MEANS TO BE SUBMISSIVE, MEEK, NOT PROUD OR ARROGANT.  AND SUBMISSIVE MEANS INCLINED OR READY TO SUBMIT UNRESISTINGLY, OR HUMBLY OBEDIENT.

MOST BIBLES TRANSLATE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN THESE VERSES FOR YOM KIPPUR TO MEAN, AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, OR AFFLICT YOURSELVES, BE HUMBLE, OR SELF DENIAL, OR DENY YOURSELVES.

BUT WITH THESE VERSES OF GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, JUDAISM HAS TAKEN THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH TO MEAN AFFLICT YOURSELF, OR PRACTICE SELF DENIAL BY FASTING.

I MAINTAIN THAT THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT DOES NOT MEAN TO AFFLICT YOURSELF BY FASTING.  BUT ON THE CONTRARY, GOD USES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH TO MEAN, HUMBLE YOURSELF AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

LET’S LOOK AT LEVITICUS 23, VERSES 27, 29, AND 32 WHERE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IS TRANSLATED IN MOST BIBLES TO MEAN AFFLICT YOURSELF, HUMBLE YOURSELF, DENY YOURSELF, OR SELF DENIAL.

AGAIN, I MAINTAIN THAT THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH SPOKEN BY GOD IN HIS YOM KIPPUR LAWS MEANS HUMBLE YOURSELF BY SUBMITTING TO GOD.  BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN THE BIBLE NEVER MEANS TO FAST.

GOD DOES NOT REQUIRE A FAST ON YOM KIPPUR.  BUT RATHER THE LORD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND SUBMIT TO THE LORD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS. 

TORAH SAYS, 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 

FASTING IS NOT A COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL JEWISH COMMENTATORS IN JEWISH HISTORY ON TNAKH, THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, AND TALMUD IS RABBI SHLOMO YITZCHAKI WHO IS BETTER KNOWN AS RASHI.  RASHI WAS BORN IN FRANCE IN 1040.

AND RASHI SAID, YOU SHALL AFFLICT IS THE TORAH TERM FOR FASTING.

I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE.  THE TORAH TERM,  YOU SHALL AFFLICT DOES NOT MEAN FASTING.

IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, THE TERM, YOU SHALL AFFLICT, OR DENY YOURSELF, MEANS, YOU SHALL BE HUMBLE BY OBEYING GOD, BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

BUT SINCE RASHI SAID THAT YOU SHALL AFFLICT IS THE TORAH TERM FOR FASTING, I RESEARCHED THE SCRIPTURE VERSES IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, WHERE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH FOR AFFLICT OR DENY IS WRITTEN AND NEVER MEANS TO FAST. 

HERE ARE SOME VERSES IN TORAH THAT USE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH THAT MEANS EITHER HUMBLE YOURSELF OR AFFLICT YOURSELF, OR AFFLICTED, BUT NEVER MEANING TO FAST.

EXODUS 10.3  AND MOSES AND AARON WENT TO PHARAOH AND SAID TO HIM, THUS SAITH THE LORD, THE GOD OF THE HEBREWS, HOW LONG WILL YOU REFUSE TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE ME.  LET MY PEOPLE GO THAT THEY MAY SERVE ME?

THE WORD HUMBLE IN THIS VERSE COMES FROM THE HEBREW LAY’AH’NOTE THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH MEANING HUMBLE.

GOD DID NOT ASK PHARAOH WHY HE IS NOT FASTING BEFORE THE LORD.  GOD ASKED PHARAOH, HOW LONG DO YOU REFUSE TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE ME?  HOW LONG DO YOU REFUSE TO SUBMIT YOURSELF BEFORE ME?

GENESIS 15.13  AND HE (GOD) SAID TO ABRAM, KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE A STRANGER IN A LAND THAT IS NOT THEIRS, AND SHALL SERVE THEM, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.

THE WORDS, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT, COME FROM THE HEBREW V’EE’NU THAT COME FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH.  GOD PROPHESIED THAT THE SEED OF ABRAHAM WILL BE AFFLICTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.  THAT WAS FULFILLED IN EGYPT WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE AFFLICTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS IN EGYPTIAN SLAVERY.  FASTING NEVER COMES INTO PLAY HERE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.2, 3, 16 

VERSE 2  AND YOU SHALL REMEMBER ALL THE WAY WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD LED YOU THESE FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS TO HUMBLE YOU, AND TO TEST YOU, TO KNOW WHAT WAS IN YOUR HEART WHETHER YOU WOULD KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS OR NOT.

VERSE 3  AND HE HUMBLED YOU, AND GAVE YOU HUNGER, AND FED YOU WITH MANNA WHICH YOU DID NOT KNOW, NEITHER DID YOUR FATHERS KNOW, THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

VERSE 16  WHO FED YOU IN THE WILDERNESS WITH MANNA WHICH YOUR FATHERS DID NOT KNOW IN ORDER TO HUMBLE YOU, AND TO TEST YOU, TO DO YOU GOOD AT YOUR LATTER END.

THE WORDS HUMBLE YOU, AND HUMBLED YOU IN THESE VERSES COME FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH THAT NEVER MEAN TO FAST, BUT TO BE HUMBLED, TO SUBMIT TO THE LORD, TO OBEY EVERY WORD THE LORD SPEAKS.

RESPECTIVELY IN THE ORDER, HUMBLE YOU, AND HUMBLED YOU IN HEBREW ARE  AH’NO’TEH’KHAH AND VY’AH’NEH’KHAH, AND AH’NO’TEH’KHAH.  ALL FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH, MEANING TO HUMBLE YOURSELF.  SUBMIT TO GOD AND OBEY HIM, EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS.

LET’S AGAIN LOOK AT GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT IN LEVITICUS 23.27, 29, 32.

LEVITICUS 23.27  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT  IN HEBREW IS V’EE’NEE’TEHM THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH THAT MEANS, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE.  YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOUR SOULS AND SUBMIT TO GOD BY OBEYING HIM.

THE HEBREW WORDS IN THIS SCRIPTURE DO NOT MEAN TO FAST, BUT RATHER SUBMIT TO GOD AND OBEY HIM.

AND SUBMITTING TO GOD IS HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS.  IT IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.  BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS, ALL HAVE BEEN CONCEIVED IN SIN.  AND SIN IS VIOLATING THE LAW OF MOSES.  THUS EVERYBODY HAS BROKEN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEREFORE EVERYONE IS REQUIRED TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.

TODAY, ATONEMENT CAN ONLY BE MADE THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM WHOSE DEATH AS A HUMAN BEING, AND HIS SHED BLOOD IS GOD’S OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS.  ISAIAH 53.10

AND HAVING FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IS AH’NAH, BEING HUMBLE, SUBMITTING TO GOD AND OBEYING HIM.  FOR THE BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOUL.  THAT IS TORAH.  LEVITICUS 17.11, ISAIAH 53.10

LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11  HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 51.7, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 51.5, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 53.10, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, THE NEW TESTAMENT, JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9

LEVITICUS 23.29  NOT AFFLICTED IN HEBREW IS  LO’TEH’OO’NEH THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW  AH’NAH  THAT MEANS, NOT HUMBLED, OR DOES NOT SUBMIT TO GOD.  THAT PERSON SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM HIS PEOPLE.

GOD WILL NEVER CUT ANYONE OFF FOR NOT FASTING, BUT GOD WILL CUT PEOPLE OFF FOR NOT SUBMITTING TO HIM.

LEVITICUS 23.32  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT IN HEBREW IS VEH’EE’NEE’TEHM, THAT IS FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH, MEANING, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE.  AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD.

I THINK OF THE PROPHET SAMUEL’S WORDS.  “HAS THE LORD AS GREAT DELIGHT IN BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES AS IN OBEYING THE VOICE OF THE LORD.  BEHOLD, TO OBEY IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE, AND TO OBEY THAN THE FAT OF RAMS.”

TO OBEY GOD IS BETTER THAN FASTING.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU AND ALL MANKIND. 

1 SAMUEL 15.22, ECCLESIASTES 12.13

THE HEBREW WORDS FOR FASTING ARE STOOM AND STOME.

LET’S LOOK AT THREE SCRIPTURES ABOUT FASTING.

2 SAMUEL 12.16  AND DAVID SOUGHT GOD FOR THE CHILD AND DAVID FASTED A FAST.

IN HEBREW, VAH’YAH’STAHM  DAH’VEED STOME.  MEANING, DAVID FASTED A FAST.  BOTH HEBREW WORDS, VAH’YAH’STAHM AND STOME MEAN FAST.

JUDGES 20.26  THEN ALL THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, EVEN ALL THE PEOPLE WENT UP AND CAME TO BETH EL, THE HOUSE OF GOD, AND WEPT AND SAT THERE BEFORE THE LORD AND FASTED THAT DAY UNTIL EVENING, AND OFFERED BURNT OFFERINGS AND PEACE OFFERINGS BEFORE THE LORD.

THE HEBREW  VAH’YAH’STOO’MU  FROM THE HEBREW STOOM  MEANS FASTED.

BUT THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH SUM IT ALL UP THAT SUBMITTING TO GOD BY OBEYING HIM IS NOT ONLY FAR SUPERIOR TO FASTING, BUT SUBMITTING TO GOD AND OBEYING EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU.

ZECHARIAH 7.5  SPEAK TO ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND, AND TO THE PRIESTS, SAYING, WHEN YOU FASTED AND MOURNED IN THE FIFTH AND SEVENTH MONTH, EVEN THOSE SEVENTY YEARS, DID YOU TRULY FAST TO ME, EVEN TO ME?  (THINK ON THESE WORDS)

YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT FALLS IN THE SEVENTH MONTH.  AND APPARENTLY THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WHILE THEY WERE IN BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY SOME 2,500 YEARS AGO FOR SEVENTY YEARS, FASTED ON YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

HOWEVER IF THE PEOPLE WERE TAUGHT TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES BEFORE THE LORD ON YOM KIPPUR, AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, THE PEOPLE CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE FASTED TO HA SHEM, THE LORD THEIR GOD. IN FACT, GOD NEVER WOULD HAVE EXILED HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HAD THEY SUBMITTED THEMSELVES TO THE LORD AND LIVED BY EVERY WORD HE SPOKE.  

BECAUSE WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE IN SUBMISSION TO THE LORD, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL ALWAYS BE ON YOUR HEART 24/7 IN EVERYTHING YOU DO.  BECAUSE YOU LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND TO PROVE AGAIN THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD OF GOD ABOVE FASTING, LET’S READ ZECHARIAH 7.5-14 FOCUSING ON VERSES 12-14.

ZECHARIAH 7.5-11

ZECHARIAH 7.12-14  AND THEY MADE THEIR HEARTS AN ADAMANT STONE (UTTERLY UNYIELDING TO GOD) FROM OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE WORDS WHICH THE LORD OF HOSTS HAS SENT BY HIS SPIRIT BY THE FORMER PROPHETS.  THEREFORE CAME GREAT WRATH FROM THE LORD OF HOSTS.

THUS IT CAME TO PASS, THAT AS HE, GOD ALMIGHTY, CRIED, AND THEY WOULD NOT HEAR, SO THEY CRIED AND I WOULD NOT HEAR, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.

BUT I SCATTERED THEM WITH A WHIRLWIND AMONG ALL THE NATIONS TO WHOM THEY DID NOT KNOW.  SO THE LAND (OF ISRAEL) IS DESOLATE BEHIND THEM FROM PASSING AND FROM RETURNING FOR THEY LAID THE PLEASANT LAND DESOLATE.  (BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD)

SO IN SUMMARY, WHEN YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE WRATH FROM THE LORD OF HOSTS.  BUT RATHER THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL LOVE YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU LIFE, HEALTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

OUR TEACHING THIS MORNING WILL COME FROM THE WORDS OF 1 CORINTHIANS 15.52.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE LAST TRUMP.  OR PERHAPS BETTER SAID, THE LAST SHOFAR.

SO WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ 1 CORINTHIANS 15.52.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.52  IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP / OR THE LAST SHOFAR, FOR THE SHOFAR SHALL SOUND, AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED.

PAUL IS THE WRITER OF THESE WORDS, AND HE IS TEACHING THE WORLD ABOUT THE LAST TRUMP OR THE LAST SHOFAR THAT WILL BE BLASTED DURING THE FUTURE RETURN OF THE LORD FROM HEAVEN ON HIS WAY TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  THIS IS THE MIGHTY EVENT WHEN GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA WILL RAISE UP THE DEAD IN MESSIAH, INCORRUPTIBLE.  AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED.  AND WE WILL MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR.

INCORRUPTIBLE IS A WORD THAT MEANS OUR BODY, SOUL, AND LIFE WILL NEVER DECAY OR DIE, BUT WE WILL BE EVERLASTING AND ETERNAL WHEN THE GOD OF ISRAEL, THE MESSIAH YESHUA RESURRECTS US AT THE LAST TRUMP TO MEET HIM IN THE AIR.  AND WE WILL BE IMMORTAL.  WE WILL NEVER BE SICK OR SAD, NOR WILL WE EVER DIE.  WE WILL BE INDESTRUCTIBLE.  WE WILL HAVE A SPIRITUAL BODY LIKE GOD.  OUR LIFE WILL BE EVERLASTING AND ENDLESS IN THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN IN THE BEAUTIES OF HOLINESS WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

LET’S LOOK AT ISAIAH 26.19  THE PROPHET ISAIAH PROPHESIES, YOUR DEAD BODY SHALL LIVE, TOGETHER WITH MY DEAD BODY SHALL THEY ARISE.  AWAKE AND SING YOU THAT DWELL IN THE DUST OF THE EARTH.  FOR YOUR DEW IS AS THE DEW OF HERBS.  AND THE EARTH SHALL CAST OUT THE DEAD.

A DEAD BODY BECOMES NOTHING BUT DRY BONES.  BUT AT THE RESURRECTION OF GOD’S ELECT, THEIR DEAD BODIES WILL BE MOIST AGAIN AND RAISED TO LIFE AT THE RESURRECTION, AT THE LAST TRUMP.  AND WE WILL BE INCORRUPTIBLE AND IMMORTAL WITH A NEW SPIRITUAL BODY THAT WILL BE LIKE THE BODY OF GOD AT THE LORD’S RETURN.  1 THESSALONIANS 4.13-18

BUT WHO WILL BE RAISED UP TO ETERNAL LIFE IN THE RESURRECTION, AND WHO WONT?  DOES GOD HAVE REQUIREMENTS?  DOES GOD HAVE WORKS FOR US THAT MUST BE PERFORMED TO BE RAISED UP IN THE RESURRECTION TO ETERNAL LIFE TO MEET MESSIAH IN THE AIR?

MESSIAH GIVES US THE ANSWER IN JOHN 5.24-29

TO BE RAISED UP IN THE FUTURE RESURRECTION AT THE LAST TRUMP TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE FOREVER IN THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN, MESSIAH YESHUA, THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE SAYS, YOU MUST OBEY HIS SPOKEN WORD. 

THE WORD HEAR SPOKEN BY MESSIAH COMES FROM THE HEBREW SH’MA THAT MEANS TO HEAR AND OBEY.  TO HEAR AND OBEY THE VOICE OF GOD IN THE BIBLE. 

AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO SAID IN GENESIS 1.1, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

AND IT IS MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO SPOKE TO MOSES FACE TO FACE TO GIVE HIM THE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS RECORDED IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL MANKIND TO HEAR AND OBEY EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD TO HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

MESSIAH SAYS, YOU MUST OBEY HIS WORD AND BELIEVE ON HIM WHO SENT ME TO BE RAISED UP TO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE.

WHO SENT MESSIAH YESHUA?

MESSIAH SAYS, HE THAT SEES ME SEES HIM THAT SENT ME.  THINK ON THAT FOR A MOMENT.  JOHN 12.45

AND MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, THEY WHO HEAR AND OBEY MY WORDS, THAT IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, SHALL LIVE, AND HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

AND DOING GOOD TO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE IS LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES AND HAVING ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA.

AND DOING EVIL TO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION IS BEING DISOBEDIENT TO GOD.  DISOBEYING THE WORDS THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND NOT OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND BELIEVING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

THOSE ARE GOD’S REQUIREMENTS AND WORKS TO BE RAISED UP AT THE LAST TRUMP IN THE RESURRECTION TO ETERNAL LIFE, OBEDIENCE TO GOD.  OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAVING ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF EVERYONE, JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL WILL BE RAISED UP BY GOD AT THE LAST TRUMP TO EVERLASTING LIFE.

GENESIS 12.3, EXODUS 33.11, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, PSALM 17.15, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 25.31-46, MATTHEW 26.28, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9, 1 JOHN 3.2, EZEKIEL 37.1-14

AND THE RESURRECTION OF GOD’S ELECT AT THE LAST TRUMP WILL INCLUDE THOSE WHO ARE ALIVE IN MESSIAH AT MESSIAH’S RETURN.  AS GOD’S REQUIREMENTS AND WORKS FOR THE DEAD IN MESSIAH FOR ETERNAL LIFE, SO ARE THEY THE SAME FOR THOSE WHO ARE ALIVE AT MESSIAH’S RETURN, OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

SOME 3,400 YEARS AGO, GOD SPOKE TO MOSES AND SAID, CONCERNING THE FEASTS OF THE LORD WHICH YOU SHALL PROCLAIM TO BE HOLY GATHERINGS, THESE ARE MY FEASTS.  LEVITICUS 23.1-2

AND GOD GAVE MOSES THE FESTIVALS OF GOD, NOT ONLY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO OBSERVE, BUT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO OBSERVE.

LET ME SAY THIS, IN THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN, EVERYONE WILL OBSERVE THE FESTIVALS OF GOD WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23.

AND GOD’S FESTIVALS THAT ARE ETERNAL AND EVERLASTING ARE THE SEVENTH DAY WEEKLY SABBATH FROM FRIDAY AT SUNDOWN TO SATURDAY AT SUNDOWN, PASSOVER, PENTECOST OR SHAVUOT IN HEBREW, AND A FESTIVAL CALLED, A MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS.  BUT IN JUDAISM THAT FESTIVAL OF GOD HAS BECOME ROSH HASHANA, THE JEWISH NEW YEAR.  THEN TEN DAYS LATER IS YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.  AND FIVE DAYS AFTER YOM KIPPUR IS THE FESTIVAL OF SUKKOT CALLED TABERNACLES.

LET’S LOOK AT LEVITICUS 23.23-25.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING, SPEAK TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, SAYING, IN THE SEVENTH MONTH, IN THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH, YOU SHALL HAVE A SABBATH, A MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS, A HOLY GATHERING.

YOU SHALL DO NO SERVILE WORK IN THAT DAY, BUT YOU SHALL OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.

BUT JUDAISM OBSERVES THIS FESTIVAL OF THE LORD AS ROSH HASHANA, THE JEWISH NEW YEAR.  THAT IS A DECISION THE RABBIS MADE SOME 2,500 YEARS AGO.

BUT GOD SAYS THAT THE FIRST MONTH OF THE YEAR IS THE MONTH THAT PASSOVER FALLS IN.  EXODUS 12.1, 2, 11

HOWEVER JUDAISM DOES SOUND THE SHOFARS DURING THIS HOLIDAY AND IS OBSERVED AS A SABBATH THROUGHOUT THE JEWISH WORLD.

BUT SINCE MAINSTREAM JUDAISM HAS REJECTED THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, THEY HAVE NO ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS BECAUSE TODAY MESSIAH YESHUA IS OUR ATONEMENT FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS.

DURING TABERNACLE TIMES WHEN THE LORD GAVE MOSES THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, THE BURNT OFFERING MADE BY FIRE, THE SACRIFICE FOR ATONEMENT, WAS MADE IN THE TABERNACLE AND THEN IN THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES BY THE SHED BLOOD OF AN ANIMAL SACRIFICE.

AND EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IS ETERNAL.  THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

BUT TODAY, GOD FORBIDS ANY ANIMAL SACRIFICE WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE STANDING IN JERUSALEM.

BUT GOD HAS GIVEN US A NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING, AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

THAT IS PROPHESIED IN THE WRITINGS OF THE PROPHET ISAIAH AND FULFILLED IN THE JEWISH NEW TESTAMENT.

IT IS EXTRAORDINARILY IMPORTANT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT MESSIAH YESHUA NEVER GAVE HIS LIFE TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, OR TO REPLACE THE OLD TESTAMENT WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT.  THAT IS ANTI-GOD, ANTI-SEMITIC DEMONIC DOCTRINE.  

MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR  ATONEMENT, FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, PERIOD.

MATTHEW 26.28, LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11, ISAIAH 52. 13-15, ISAIAH 53.10

I BELIEVE THAT THIS FESTIVAL OF GOD IN LEVITICUS 23.23-25, A MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS THAT JUDAISM HAS MADE ROSH HA SHANAH, THE JEWISH NEW YEAR, IS WHEN MESSIAH YESHUA WILL RETURN FROM HEAVEN AT AN UNKNOWN TIME IN THE FUTURE.  AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THEIR SYNAGOGUES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WILL BE BLOWING SHOFARS.  IT WILL BE AN AMAZING DAY WHEN MESSIAH RETURNS.  SO MANY GREAT THINGS WILL HAPPEN.  SO MANY.

GOD WILL OPEN THE GRAVES OF THE DEAD WHO ARE THE ELECT, AND CAUSE THEM TO COME UP OUT OF THEIR GRAVES.  AND GOD WILL PUT HIS SPIRIT IN THEM, AND THEY WILL LIVE.  AND GOD WILL RAISE THEM UP TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR. 

AND THOSE WHO ARE ALIVE, THE ELECT OF GOD ALMIGHTY THE MESSIAH WILL THE LORD RAISE THEM UP, AND THEY WILL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR.  AND WE WILL GO WITH MESSIAH YESHUA TO THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  AND ISRAEL’S GOD GIVEN BORDERS WILL RETURN FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER.  

AND HIS FEET WILL STAND IN THAT DAY UPON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES WHICH IS BEFORE JERUSALEM ON THE EAST.  AND THE MOUNT OF OLIVES WILL BREAK OPEN IN THE CENTER TOWARD THE EAST AND TOWARD THE WEST.  AND THERE WILL BE A VERY GREAT VALLEY.  AND HALF OF THE MOUNTAIN WILL MOVE TOWARD THE NORTH, AND HALF OF THE MOUNTAIN WILL MOVE TOWARD THE SOUTH. 

AND MESSIAH WILL DESTROY ALL THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL IN A MOMENT. 

AND MESSIAH YESHUA WILL BE KING OVER ALL THE EARTH FROM JERUSALEM.

GENESIS 15.18-21, ISAIAH 51.1-3, ZECHARIAH 14, 1-12, REVELATION 20.7-15

LET’S LOOK AT MESSIAH’S WORDS THAT SPEAK OF HIS RETURN IN MATTHEW 24.27-31

FOR AS THE LIGHTNING COMES OUT OF THE EAST, AND SHINES TO THE WEST, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN (MESSIAH YESHUA) BE.

FOR WHERESOEVER THE CARCASE IS, THERE WILL THE VULTURES BE GATHERED TOGETHER.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS SHALL THE SUN BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, AND THE STARS SHALL FALL FROM THE HEAVENS, AND THE POWERS OF THE HEAVENS SHALL BE SHAKEN.

AND THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN (GOD ALMIGHTY HA SHEM ELOHIM THE MESSIAH YESHUA) AND THEN SHALL ALL THE TRIBES OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL MOURN (ZECHARIAH 12.10), AND THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY.

AND HE SHALL SEND HIS ANGELS WITH A GREAT SOUND OF A SHOFAR, AND THEY SHALL GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER.

HERE’S A QUESTION, WHO ARE MESSIAH YESHUA’S ELECT?

PAUL TEACHES WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BE MESSIAH’S ELECT IN COLOSSIANS 3.12 

THE ELECT ARE HOLY.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE HOLY?

LEVITICUS 19.2  YOU SHALL BE HOLY FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY.

BEING HOLY IS BEING LIKE GOD WHO LIVES BY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS.

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS LAW.  EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS HIS PROMISE, HIS TEACHING, HIS INSTRUCTION, HIS COMMANDMENT, HIS JUDGMENT, HIS MESSAGE, AND HIS PURPOSE THAT IS FOREVER THAT NEVER CHANGES.

THEREFORE BEING HOLY IS LIVING YOUR LIFE AS GOD LIVES HIS LIFE.  IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  1 JOHN 1.9

AND BEING GOD’S ELECT IS TAUGHT BY PETER IN 1 PETER 1.2. 

ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT UNTO OBEDIENCE AND SPRINKLING OF THE BLOOD OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH.  GRACE TO YOU, AND PEACE BE MULTIPLIED.

THE ELECT ARE SANCTIFIED, MADE HOLY BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.  THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE MESSIAH YESHUA UNTO OBEDIENCE. 

THE ELECT LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES.

THAT IS HOW A PERSON BECOMES THE ELECT OF GOD.  BEING HOLY AS GOD IS HOLY.  LIVING IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND GOD’S ELECT INCLUDE THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

AND WHEN THE LAST TRUMP IS SOUNDED AT A TIME IN THE FUTURE DURING THE FESTIVAL OF THE LORD THAT GOD CALLS A MEMORIAL OF BLOWING OF TRUMPETS, THAT JUDAISM CALLS ROSH HA SHANAH, THE JEWISH NEW YEAR, MESSIAH SAYS, GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS WITH A GREAT SOUND OF THE SHOFAR AND THEY SHALL GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT.

GOD’S ELECT LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THEREFORE IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF ANY EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP, FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND AND GOD’S ELECT SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED.

TORAH, BETTER KNOWN AS THE LAW OF MOSES, IS A CONTINUOUS STORY WITH GOD’S LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS.

Shalom,

Our Teaching this morning will continue in Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 25.11-19.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, TORAH, BETTER KNOWN AS THE LAW OF MOSES, IS A CONTINUOUS STORY WITH GOD’S LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS.

AS YOU WELL KNOW, THE STORY IN THE LAW OF MOSES, KNOWN AS THE TORAH, TRACES THE HISTORY OF MANKIND FROM CREATION UNTIL GRADUALLY NARROWING ITS FOCUS ON ONE FAMILY, THE FAMILY OF ABRAM WHOM GOD LATER CHANGED ABRAM’S NAME TO ABRAHAM, MEANING, FATHER OF MANY NATIONS.

ABRAHAM WAS SEVENTY FIVE YEARS OLD WHEN GOD FIRST MET WITH HIM.  AND THE STORY CONTINUES TO FOCUS ON ABRAHAM’S FAMILY THROUGH HIS LINE OF ISAAC AND JACOB AND THEIR DESCENDANTS, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND THE LORD SAID TO ABRAM, GO FORTH FROM YOUR LAND, AND FROM YOUR RELATIVES, AND FROM YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE TO A LAND THAT I WILL SHOW YOU.

AND 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 THOSE WHO BLESS YOU, AND CURSE THOSE WHO CURSE YOU, AND IN YOU SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.

THE LAND THAT GOD SENT ABRAM AND HIS WIFE SARAI TO WAS THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT WOULD BECOME THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THE PERMANENT HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

AFTER THE BIRTH OF ISAAC, THE SON OF ABRAHAM AND SARAH, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR SEED BE CALLED. MEANING, THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL DESCEND FROM ISAAC.

ABRAHAM IS FIRST CALLED, THE HEBREW PRIOR TO ABRAHAM MEETING MELCHIZEDEK.

LATER IN THE DAYS OF JACOB, THE SON OF ISAAC, THE GRANDSON OF ABRAHAM, GOD SAID TO JACOB, YOUR NAME SHALL NOT BE CALLED JACOB ANYMORE, BUT ISRAEL.  FOR AS A PRINCE YOU HAVE POWER WITH GOD AND WITH MAN AND HAVE PREVAILED.

AND THE HEBREWS WERE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

AND THE HEBREWS, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, CAME TO BE KNOWN IN THE BIBLE SOME 2,700 YEARS AGO AS THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHEN THE KING OF SYRIA DROVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM ELATH.  AND THE SYRIANS CAME TO ELATH AND DWELT THERE.  TODAY ELATH IS CALLED ELAT THAT IS A RESORT TOWN IN ISRAEL LOCATED AT THE SOUTHERN TIP OF ISRAEL AT THE RED SEA.

JEW AND JEWISH IN HEBREW IS YEH’HUDI THAT MEANS ONE WHO CELEBRATES, PRAISES, HONORS, AND WORSHIPS GOD.

THE STORY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE BEGAN 4,000 YEARS AGO SOME 2,000 YEARS AFTER THE CREATION WHEN GOD TOOK ABRAHAM OUT FROM THE GENTILES.  AND OVER TIME, THE FAMILIES OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB WERE LIVING IN CANAAN, THE LAND THAT GOD PROMISED THEM THAT WOULD BECOME THE JEWISH HOMELAND FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.

THE BORDERS OF CANAAN WERE FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER THAT FLOWS THROUGH SYRIA AND IRAQ INTO THE PERSIAN GULF.

BUT THE PROMISE OF A JEWISH HOMELAND IN CANAAN APPEARED IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE BECAUSE THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB WERE VERY FEW.  BUT GOD HAD A PLAN. 

OVER THE COURSE OF TIME THE SONS OF JACOB BECAME JEALOUS OF THEIR BROTHER JOSEPH BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THEIR FATHER JACOB LOVED JOSEPH MORE THAN HE LOVED THEM.  SO THEY THOUGHT ABOUT KILLING JOSEPH.  AND THEY TOSSED JOSEPH INTO A DITCH WITHOUT WATER AND SAT DOWN TO EAT.  BUT IN THE MEANTIME, SOME MIDIANITE MERCHANT MEN SAW JOSEPH IN THE DITCH AND THEY PULLED HIM OUT AND SOLD HIM TO A GROUP OF ISHMAEELITES.  AND THE ISMAEELITES BROUGHT JOSEPH DOWN TO EGYPT AND SOLD HIM THERE.

AFTER JOSEPH SPENT TIME IN JAIL BECAUSE OF FALSE ACCUSATIONS, GOD BROUGHT ON A GREAT FAMINE IN THE MIDDLE EAST INCLUDING EGYPT AND CANAAN CAUSING JACOB TO SEND JOSEPH’S BROTHERS DOWN TO EGYPT TO BUY FOOD.  AND THE BROTHERS MET THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT WHO WAS SELLING THE FOOD.  AND THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT JUST SO HAPPENED TO BE THEIR BROTHER JOSEPH.

AFTER JOSEPH PUT HIS BROTHERS THROUGH SOME HOOPS TO DRIVE THEM A LITTLE CRAZY, AND BECAUSE OF THE GREAT AMOUNT OF FOOD IN EGYPT BECAUSE OF JOSEPH’S WISDOM, WITH THE HELP OF GOD, JOSEPH HAD HIS FAMILY OF SEVENTY JEWISH PEOPLE MOVE DOWN TO EGYPT.  THAT WAS THE ENTIRE JEWISH POPULATION AT THE TIME.

IN TIME, JOSEPH DIED, AND ALL HIS FAMILY, AND ALL THAT JEWISH GENERATION WHO CAME OUT OF CANAAN TO EGYPT ALSO DIED.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, NOW THERE AROSE A NEW KING OVER EGYPT WHO DID NOT KNOW JOSEPH.  AND THIS KING OF EGYPT PUT THE JEWS INTO SLAVERY THAT CONTINUED ON FOR FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.

PART OF GOD’S PLAN WAS TO MAKE OF ABRAHAM A GREAT NATION.  AND DURING THEIR FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF SLAVERY IN EGYPT, GOD MADE OF ABRAHAM A GREAT NATION OF SOME THREE MILLION PEOPLE.

AT THE END OF FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF SLAVERY, AS PERHAPS THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS, GOD MET MOSES ON MOUNT SINAI AT A BUSH THAT BURNED WITH FIRE, BUT THE BUSH DID NOT CONSUME.  AND THERE GOD APPOINTED MOSES TO LEAD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, AND A MIXED MULTITUDE OF SOME THREE MILLION PEOPLE OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED AND POSSESSED THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH HOMELAND.  GOD’S PLAN WAS ACCOMPLISHED.

AND BECAUSE OF JEWISH DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD IN THE WILDERNESS ON THEIR WAY TO THE PROMISED LAND FROM EGYPT, GOD DETERMINED THAT IT WOULD TAKE THEM FORTY YEARS TO WALK FROM EGYPT TO CANAAN WITH ALL THEIR ANIMALS AND THINGS.

BUT DAVID WRITES IN THE PSALMS THAT MAN IS CONCEIVED IN SIN.  SIN IS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY BREAKING GOD’S LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS WRITTEN IN IT.

GOD SAYS OFTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT MAN MUST HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS OF BREAKING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE ONLY ATONEMENT AVAILABLE TODAY IS THE ATONEMENT OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHOSE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD AS A HUMAN BEING IS FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF THE SINS OF MANY.  FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, AND FOR NON JEWISH PEOPLE.

AND DURING THOSE FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN, GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES AND HIS SERVANT.  AND GOD TAUGHT HIS JEWISH PEOPLE THE STORY AND HISTORY OF MANKIND FROM CREATION.  AND GOD TAUGHT HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HIS WORD, HIS LAWS, HIS COMMANDMENTS, AND HIS TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE FOR ALL HUMANITY TO OBEY.

AND OVER THE SPAN OF SOME 1,500 YEARS FROM MOSES TO THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA AND MESSIAH’S JEWISH DISCIPLES, GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE RECORDED IN THE BIBLE EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPOKE TO THEM FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THUS THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE FULFILLED GOD’S APPOINTMENT TO BE HIS SERVANT AND WITNESSES TO ALL HUMANITY THROUGH THE BIBLE THEY WROTE FROM EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THEY RECEIVED.

AND THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT ARE IN THEM.  HE IS THE FOCUS OF TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HE IS THE FOCUS OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE.  AND MESSIAH SHOULD BE THE FOCUS OF EVERYBODY FOR THEIR GOOD.

AND NOW IN OUR SHABBAT TEACHINGS OF TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY, WE ARE DRAWING TO THE CLOSE OF ISRAEL’S FORTY YEAR JOURNEY THROUGH THE WILDERNESS FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN WHERE GOD IS THEIR MIGHTY HELP FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO CONQUER AND POSSESS THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT BECAME THE JEWISH HOMELAND ISRAEL FOR AS LONG AS THE EARTH REMAINS.

GENESIS 1, GENESIS 12.1-7, GENESIS 14.13-20, GENESIS 15.18-21, GENESIS 17.8, GENESIS 21.12, HEBREW BIBLE GENESIS 32.29-33, CHRISTIAN BIBLE GENESIS 32.28-32, EXODUS 1.8, DEUTERONOMY 7.6-11, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, 2 KINGS 16.6, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 51.7, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 51.5, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.10, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 26.26-28, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, 1 JOHN 3.4

SO LET’S LOOK INTO THE SCRIPTURE VERSES OF STUDY WHERE MOSES ADDS ONE OF GOD’S LAWS, AND REVIEWS TWO IN DEUTERONOMY 25.11-19.

DEUTERONOMY 25.11-12  WHEN MEN FIGHT TOGETHER, A MAN AND BROTHER, AND THE WIFE OF THE ONE DRAWS NEAR TO DELIVER HER HUSBAND OUT OF THE HAND OF HIM WHO IS BEATING HIM, AND PUTS FORTH HER HAND AND TAKES HIM BY THE GENITALS,

THEN YOU SHALL CUT OFF HER HAND.  YOUR EYE SHALL NOT PITY HER.

DEUTERONOMY 25.13-16  YOU SHALL NOT HAVE IN YOUR BAG TWO SETS OF STONE WEIGHTS, A GREAT STONE AND A SMALL STONE.

YOU SHALL NOT HAVE IN YOUR HOUSE TWO SETS OF MEASURES, ONE BIG AND THE OTHER SMALL.

BUT YOU SHALL HAVE A PERFECT AND JUST WEIGHT, A PERFECT AND JUST MEASURE THAT YOU MAY PROLONG YOUR DAYS IN THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU.

FOR ALL WHO DO SUCH THINGS, AND ALL THAT DO UNRIGHTEOUSLY ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 25.17-19  REMEMBER WHAT AMALEK DID TO YOU BY THE WAY WHEN YOU CAME OUT OF EGYPT.

HOW HE MET YOU BY THE WAY AND ATTACKED YOUR BACK, ALL THE FEEBLE IN YOUR REAR WHEN YOU WERE FAINT AND WEARY, AND HE DID NOT FEAR GOD.

THEREFORE IT SHALL BE WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS GIVEN YOU REST FROM ALL YOUR ENEMIES ROUND ABOUT IN THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE TO POSSESS IT, THAT YOU SHALL BLOT OUT THE REMEMBRANCE OF AMALEK FROM UNDER THE HEAVENS.  YOU SHALL NOT FORGET IT.

GOD SAYS IN VERSE 18 THAT AMALEK DID NOT FEAR GOD WHEN THEY ATTACKED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF EGYPT.  EXODUS 17.8-17

AMALEK DID NOT FEAR GOD.  NEITHER DO THE PALESTINIANS AND MANY OTHERS WHO ATTACK AND CURSE ISRAEL AND JEWISH PEOPLE.  AT SOME POINT THOSE WHO ATTACK AND CURSE ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL EXPERIENCE WHAT GOD MEANS WHEN HE SAYS, THEY DO NOT FEAR GOD.

IN THE STORY OF PURIM, HAMAN WAS AN AMALAKITE.  HE HATED THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND WANTED THEM ALL KILLED IN THE GREAT PERSIAN KINGDOM 2,500 YEARS AGO.

HAMAN DID NOT FEAR GOD.

ESTHER 3.10  AGAG WAS KING OF THE AMALEKITES.

1 SAMUEL 15.1-35

1 SAMUEL 15.22-23  THE PROPHET SAMUEL SAID, DOES THE LORD DELIGHT  IN BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES AS IN OBEYING THE VOICE OF THE LORD?  BEHOLD, TO OBEY IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE, AND OBEYING THAN THE FAT OF RAMS.

FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT, AND STUBBORNNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND IDOLATRY.  BECAUSE YOU (KING SAUL)  HAVE REJECTED THE WORD OF THE LORD, SO HE HAS REJECTED YOU FROM BEING KING.

THE MOST IMPORTANT TEACHING OF GOD THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE IS OBEDIENCE TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.  OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD IS OBEYING HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND OBEYING EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND KNOWING AND BELIEVING THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD HA SHEM IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA IS YOUR ATONEMENT FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.

FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD SAYS IN DEUTERONOMY 25.16, ALL THAT DO UNRIGHTEOUSLY ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.

THE HEBREW FOR UNRIGHTEOUSLY IS AH’VEHL MEANING EVIL, WICKED, WICKEDNESS, INIQUITY, SIN.

SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES. 1 JOHN 3.4

ARE YOU BEING TAUGHT THE LIE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR OPTIONAL, OR ONLY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE?  

BACK TO HAMAN.  HAMAN WAS HUNG ON AN EIGHTY FOOT GALLOWS THAT HE HAD PREPARED TO HANG MORDECHAI THE JEW.  HAMAN DID NOT FEAR GOD. 

SO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS A CONTINUOUS STORY WITH GOD’S LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT GOD REQUIRES ALL MANKIND TO OBEY THAT STANDS FOREVER AND NEVER CHANGES.

Shalom,
