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.

THE LAST TRUMP

Shalom

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.

WHO WILL GO UP TO MEET MESSIAH IN THE AIR?

Shalom,

Our Teaching will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 25.1-10.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHO WILL GO UP TO MEET MESSIAH IN THE AIR?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 25.1-10

DEUTERONOMY 25.1-3  IF THERE IS A CONTROVERSY BETWEEN MEN, AND THEY COME TO JUDGMENT, AND THEY JUDGE THEM, AND DECLARE THE RIGHTEOUS TO BE RIGHTEOUS, AND DECLARE THE GUILTY TO BE GUILTY AND LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PUNISHMENT,

THEN IT SHALL BE IF THE JUDGE SHALL CAUSE THE GUILTY TO BE BEATEN, THAT THE JUDGE SHALL HAVE HIM TO LIE DOWN IN HIS PRESENCE, AND BE BEATEN ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF HIS WICKEDNESS BY A CERTAIN NUMBER OF LASHES.

FORTY TIMES HE MAY STRIKE HIM, AND NOT MORE.  LEST IF HE SHOULD EXCEED AND BEAT HIM ABOVE THESE MANY LASHES, THEN YOUR BROTHER WOULD BE VILE BEFORE YOUR EYES.

I NEVER QUESTION GOD.  I NEVER QUESTION THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

I WAS GOING TO BREAK THESE VERSES DOWN AND EXPLAIN THE MEANING OF A NUMBER OF WORDS FROM THE HEBREW BUT THAT IS JUST NOT NECESSARY.  THE POINT IS WELL MADE IN THESE VERSES.  THE JUDGMENT IS BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE GUILTY.

THE RIGHTEOUS ARE THOSE WHO ARE LAWFUL.  THEY LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  IN THE UNITED STATES, THE RIGHTEOUS LIVE BY THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES, AND BY GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES FROM GENESIS THROUGH DEUTERONOMY.

THE LAW OF MOSES CONTAINS THE LAWS OF GOD THAT APPLY TO EVERY HUMAN BEING IN THE WORLD.  JEWISH AND GENTILE, BECAUSE GOD IS THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES.

THE GUILTY OR WICKED, AS SOME BIBLES READ, ARE UNRIGHTEOUS.  THE GUILTY DEPART FROM GOD.  THEY ARE WRONG IN THE SIGHT OF GOD BECAUSE THEY DISOBEY GOD.

JAN AND I WERE SHOPPING AT A GROCERY STORE THIS WEEK.  AND ONE OF THE WORKERS AT THE STORE I USUALLY HAVE A BRIEF CONVERSATION WITH IS A CHRISTIAN MAN.  AND THIS WEEK WE TALKED ABOUT CURRENT-DAY EVENTS AROUND THE WORLD; DIVISION, TERROR, ANTI SEMITISM, ETC.

AND THE CHRISTIAN MAN SAID TO ME, IT’S ALL BAD, BUT WE IN THE CHURCH DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE THINGS BECAUSE WE’RE ALL GOING UP TO MEET JESUS IN THE AIR.  HE SAID THIS ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE TIMES.  WE DON’T HAVE TO WORRY BECAUSE WE’RE ALL GOING UP TO MEET JESUS IN THE AIR.

AND I SAID TO HIM, YOU KNOW, JESUS SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, AND HE FINISHED THE SENTENCE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

AND I SAID TO HIM, EVERY WORD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT WAS THE END OF THE CONVERSATION.

AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, HOW MISLED THIS MAN IS.  HOW MISLED SO MANY PEOPLE ARE BECAUSE IT IS UNIVERSAL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES FROM GENESIS THROUGH DEUTERONOMY IS ABOLISHED, DONE AWAY WITH, AND DESTROYED.

CHRISTIANITY ALONG WITH SO MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE SWALLOWED THE CHRISTIAN LIE THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES FROM GENESIS THROUGH DEUTERONOMY IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL MAKING THEM GUILTY, WRONG, AND UNRIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.  BECAUSE THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD, WHETHER GOD’S WORDS THAT PROCEED OUT OF HIS MOUTH ARE WRITTEN IN GENESIS OR NUMBERS OR MATTHEW OR REVELATION, OR ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE CAN NEVER BE ABOLISHED.

THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE CAN NEVER BE BROKEN.  NOT BY THE CHURCH, NOT BY ANYONE.  NOT EVEN BY GOD.

AS YOU WELL KNOW, THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE GOD’S WITNESSES TO THE WORLD.  AND GOD SPOKE THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND GOD SPOKE HIS WORD TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

MY POINT IS THIS.  NOT ONLY MUST THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, BUT ALL HUMANITY MUST LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  FOR GOD IS THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES.

AND OBEDIENCE TO THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD LEADS TO SALVATION AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THAT IS HOW THE JEWISH PEOPLE WITNESS TO THE WORLD, BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE RECORDED. 

AND NO WHERE IS IT WRITTEN THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL OR ONLY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE.

THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES IS GIVEN TO THE ENTIRE WORLD FOR SALVATION AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WHEN OBEYED.

IT IS WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT THE WORD OF OUR GOD SHALL STAND FOREVER.  THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT ENDURES FOREVER.  THE WORD ENDURE MEANS THAT THE LAW OF MOSES SUFFERS PATIENTLY WITHOUT YIELDING.  IT NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS, IT CONTINUES IN EXISTENCE AND LASTS FOREVER.

MATTHEW 5.17-20, MESSIAH YESHUA DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF MOSES OR THE PROPHETS, BUT TO FULFILL THE PROPHESIES OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND THAT INCLUDES HIS PROPHESIED DEATH, AND THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS THROUGH HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD.

EARTH WILL PASS AWAY BUT HEAVEN WILL NEVER PASS AWAY.  TEMPORARY THINGS WILL PASS AWAY AND END, BUT THE WORD OF GOD THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WILL NEVER END.

AND THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS GOD, AND THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS HEAVEN, EARTH, AND HELL.  AND THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ARE LEAST IN HELL.  AND GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE KING RULES IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

AND RIGHTEOUSNESS EXCEEDING THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES IS OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. 

MATTHEW 24.35  MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  HIS WORDS INCLUDE THE LAW OF MOSES THAT WILL NEVER PASS AWAY.

HEAVEN IN HEBREW IS HA’SHAH’MAH’YEEM, MEANING THE HEAVENS.  THE HEAVENS ARE THE SKY, THE FIRMAMENT, THE EXPANSE OF SPACE SURROUNDING THE EARTH.  THAT IS WHAT WILL PASS AWAY.  BUT HEAVEN WILL NEVER PASS AWAY.

MATTHEW 26.26-28, LUKE 12.5

JOHN 10.35  THE SCRIPTURE CAN NOT BE BROKEN.  THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES THAT CAN NOT BE BROKEN.  1 PETER 1.25

LEVITICUS 17.11, DEUTERONOMY 4.2

PSALM 1.1-6  THE UNGODLY ARE UNRIGHTEOUS.  THEY DISOBEY THE LAW OF MOSES.

PSALM 119.1, 2, 3, 9, 19, 21, 29, 30, 44, 45, 50, 63, 65, 71, 72, 77, 81, 89, 92, 103, 104, 105, 113, 114, 118, 123, 126, 130, 136, 137, 138, 142, 151, 152 155, 163, 165, 172, 174

ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 43.10, ISAIAH 46.10-11 ISAIAH 53.10

RETURNING TO DEUTERONOMY 25.1-3, THE WICKED WHO ARE GUILTY DEPART FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  THEY ARE UNRIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THOSE WHO LIVE BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE ARE RIGHTEOUS AND RIGHT WITH GOD AND ARE JUSTIFIED.  THEY HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.  AND THEY WILL MAKE THEIR WAY PROSPEROUS AND HAVE GOOD SUCCESS.

SO, WHO WILL GO UP AND MEET MESSIAH IN THE AIR?  THOSE WHO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THE GENTILES WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  THEY WILL GO UP TO MEET MESSIAH YESHUA IN THE AIR, IN THE CLOUDS, AND PROCEED TO THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL FOR 1,000 YEARS THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  AND AFTER THE 1.000 YEARS, THE EARTH WILL FLEE AWAY AND THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 51.1-3, JOSHUA 1.7-9, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, ROMANS 2.13

ROMANS 3.29, 31  PAUL TEACHES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT WE SHOULD ESTABLISH THE LAW OF MOSES IN OUR LIFE AND LIVE BY IT.

ROMANS 13.1, 1 THESSALONIANS 4.13-18, 1 PETER 1.23-25, 1 PETER 2.13, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.34, JUDE 8, REVELATION 20.11-15, EXODUS 32.33, JAMES 1.25

NO WHERE IN THE BIBLE IS IT WRITTEN THAT GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, HA SHEM SAYS THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR CHANGED.  RATHER GOD SAYS HIS LAW OF MOSES STANDS FOREVER.

THE CHURCH ALSO HAS THIS MIND SET THAT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST YOU DON’T HAVE TO OBEY ANYTHING GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE EXCEPT DO NOT BE A HOMOSEXUAL, OR A LESBIAN, AND DO NOT COMMIT ABORTION.  EVERY OTHER CRIME OF DISOBEYING THE LAWS OF GOD ARE COVERED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS.  WE’RE ALL GOING UP TO MEET JESUS IN THE AIR, THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS ARE TAUGHT.  THAT IS A FAIRY TALE, AND CERTAINLY NOT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  AND VERY SAD, AND WRONG.

THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER.

THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH THE ENTIRE BIBLE STANDS IS THE LAW OF MOSES. 

THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO LIVE OUR LIFE FOR GOD WHO CREATED US.  AND WE LIVE OUR LIFE FOR GOD WHEN WE LIVE IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, FOR OUR GOOD, FOR OUR HEATH, FOR OUR SALVATION, AND FOR OUR ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD FOREVER.

WITHOUT THE LAW OF MOSES, PEOPLE ARE LIVING THEIR LIVES WITHOUT GOD IN THEIR LIFE.  AND WITHOUT GOD IN YOUR LIFE THERE IS NO SALVATION.  AND WITHOUT THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS GOD’S SPOKEN WORD, HIS LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS, THERE IS NO ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  UNLESS THE GENTILE BLESSES THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

DEUTERONOMY 25.4  YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHEN HE TREADS OUT THE CORN.  THAT IS TO SAY, YOU SHALL NOT PREVENT THE OX FROM EATING WHILE IT IS WORKING.

GOD TEACHES US TO HAVE RESPECT FOR ANIMALS AND OTHERS.

DEUTERONOMY 25.5  THIS IS KNOWN IN JUDAISM AS THE LEVIRATE MARRIAGE.

IF BROTHERS DWELL TOGETHER AND ONE OF THEM DIES AND HAS NO CHILD, THE WIFE OF THE DEAD SHALL NOT MARRY OUTSIDE TO A STRANGER.

IN HEBREW, “IF BROTHERS DWELL TOGETHER,” IS, KEE YAYSH’VU AH’KHEEM YAHKH’DAHV.

YAKH’DAHV IS FROM THE HEBREW YAY’KHAD, MEANING, UNITED TOGETHER.  WHEN BROTHERS DWELL TOGETHER AND ARE UNITED TOGETHER AND ONE OF THEM DIES AND HAS NO CHILD, THE WIFE OF THE DEAD SHALL NOT MARRY OUTSIDE TO A STRANGER, THAT IS TO A NON JEWISH PERSON.  HER HUSBAND’S BROTHER SHALL MARRY HER.

DEUTERONOMY 25.6-10  AND IT SHALL BE THAT THE FIRST BORN WHICH SHE BEARS SHALL CARRY ON THE NAME OF HIS BROTHER WHO IS DEAD THAT HIS NAME SHALL NOT BE PUT OUT OF ISRAEL.

AND IF THE MAN DOES NOT DESIRE TO TAKE HIS BROTHER’S WIFE, THEN SHALL HIS BROTHER’S WIFE GO UP TO THE GATE TO THE ELDERS, AND SAY, MY HUSBAND’S BROTHER REFUSES TO RAISE UP TO HIS BROTHER A NAME IN ISRAEL.  HE IS NOT WILLING TO PERFORM THE DUTY OF MY HUSBAND’S BROTHER.

THEN THE ELDERS OF HIS CITY SHALL CALL HIM AND SPEAK TO HIM, AND HE SHALL STAND AND SAY, I DESIRE NOT TO TAKE HER.  THEN HIS BROTHER’S WIFE SHALL COME TO HIM IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ELDERS, AND SHALL TAKE HIS SHOE FROM OFF HIS FOOT, AND SPIT IN HIS FACE, AND SHALL ANSWER AND SAY, THUS SHALL IT BE DONE TO THAT MAN WHO WILL NOT BUILD UP HIS BROTHER’S HOUSE.

AND HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED IN ISRAEL, THE HOUSE OF THE ONE WHOSE SHOE WAS REMOVED.

SO, THE LEVIRATE MARRIAGE REQUIRES THE BROTHER OF A DECEASED CHILDLESS MAN TO MARRY HIS WIDOW IN ORDER THAT THE FIRST BORN WHOM SHE GIVES BIRTH TO WILL CARRY ON THE NAME OF HIS BROTHER WHO IS DEAD THAT HIS NAME WILL NOT BE PUT OUT OF ISRAEL.

IF THE BROTHER DOES NOT DESIRE TO MARRY HER, IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ELDERS, SHE REMOVES HIS SHOE FROM OFF HIS FOOT AND SPITS IN HIS FACE, AND SAYS, SO SHALL IT BE DONE TO THE MAN WHO WILL NOT BUILD UP HIS BROTHER’S HOUSE, AND SHE MOVES ON WITH HER LIFE.

AND WHO WILL GO UP TO MEET MESSIAH IN THE AIR?  ALL WHO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. AND THE GENTILES WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  ZECHARIAH 14.1-5

MOSES IS PROOF THAT GOD REWARDS ALL PEOPLE WHO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS WITH GOOD HEALTH AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses, will continue from Deuteronomy 24.5-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, MOSES IS PROOF THAT GOD REWARDS ALL PEOPLE WHO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS WITH GOOD HEALTH AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ DEUTERONOMY 24.5-22.

BEFORE DOING A STUDY ON THESE WORDS IN DEUTERONOMY 24.5-22, I WAS THINKING ABOUT MOSES, THE SERVANT OF GOD.  THAT MOSES DIED AT THE AGE OF 120 YEARS OLD WHEN HE WAS STILL IN VERY GOOD HEALTH.

BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS, AND MOSES WAS 120 YEARS OLD WHEN HE DIED.  HIS EYE WAS NOT DIM, NOR WAS HIS STRENGTH AND ENERGY DIMINISHED.  DEUTERONOMY 34.7

AND MOSES WAS 120 YEARS OLD WHEN HE DIED.  HIS EYE WAS NOT DIM, NOR HIS NATURAL FORCE ABATED.  MEANING MOSES STILL HAD GOOD EYESIGHT WHEN HE DIED, AND HIS STRENGTH AND ENERGY HAD NOT DIMINISHED.

MOSES WAS IN GOOD HEALTH WHEN HE DIED BECAUSE HE WAS OBEDIENT TO GOD.  MOSES OBEYED EVERY WORD, LAW, TEACHING, AND COMMANDMENT THAT GOD SPOKE. AND THAT IS WHAT THE LORD YOUR GOD REQUIRES OF YOU AND ALL MANKIND WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT.

EXODUS 15.26, EXODUS 23.25, LEVITICUS 26.1-16 ff, DEUTERONOMY 12.28, HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 13.18-19, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 13.17-18, DEUTERONOMY 28.1-15 ff, PSALM 147.3, HOSEA 6.1, MATTHEW  5.48, 1 KINGS 8.61, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 3.4 

YES, IT IS WRITTEN THAT MOSES DISOBEYED GOD AT A CERTAIN ROCK BEFORE THE PEOPLE CROSSED THE JORDAN RIVER AND CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN.  AND BECAUSE OF HIS DISOBEDIENCE TO THE LORD AT THE ROCK, GOD PUNISHED MOSES BY NOT ALLOWING HIM TO ENTER CANAAN TO SEE THE NEW HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL. 

AND THERE GOD BROUGHT FORTH WATER FROM THE ROCK FOR ALL THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO DRINK, SOME THREE MILLION PEOPLE, AND THEIR ANIMALS.

THAT IS WRITTEN IN NUMBERS 20.1-13

BUT ASIDE FROM THIS ONE ACT OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, MOSES WAS OBEDIENT IN ALL THAT THE LORD SPOKE.  SO NOT ONLY DID GOD REWARD MOSES WITH GOOD HEALTH, BUT MOSES IS ALSO IN HEAVEN BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT SOME 1,400 YEARS LATER MOSES WAS IN ISRAEL WITH MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, AND ELIJAH THE PROPHET AT THE TRANSFIGURATION OF MESSIAH.  MATTHEW 17.1-3

NUMBERS 12.3 READS, NOW THE MAN MOSES WAS VERY MEEK MORE THAN ANY MAN WHO WAS ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

VERY MEEK IN HEBREW IS AH’NYVE ME’ODE, MEANING MOSES WAS VERY HUMBLE.  HE SUBMITTED TO GOD.  THAT IS, MOSES OBEYED GOD.  HE OBEYED THE WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE.

THEREFORE MOSES IS PROOF THAT IF YOU OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOUR REWARD FROM GOD WILL BE GOOD HEALTH ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

BUT YOU MIGHT SAY, WHY DON’T YOU INCLUDE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA?  BECAUSE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS INCLUDED WHEN YOU OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS JEHOVAH, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  AND AS YOU WELL KNOW, GOD SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER IN JERUSALEM, “FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.”  MATTHEW 26.28

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDES THOSE WORDS THAT MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SPOKE AT HIS SEDER, “FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.”

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, MICAH 5.2, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD TOUCH ON THE FACT THAT MOSES IS PROOF THAT GOD REWARDS ALL, JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE, WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE WITH GOOD HEALTH AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  1 JOHN 1.9

OKAY, LET’S DO A STUDY ON DEUTERONOMY 24.5-22

DEUTERONOMY 24.5  WHEN A MAN MARRIES A NEW WIFE, HE SHALL NOT GO OUT TO WAR, NOR BE ASSIGNED BY THE ARMY FOR ANY PURPOSE.  BUT HE SHALL BE FREE AT HOME FOR ONE YEAR, AND SHALL REJOICE WITH HIS WIFE WHOM HE HAS TAKEN. 

GOD IS A KIND AND UNDERSTANDING GOD.  AND GOD IS KIND AND UNDERSTANDING WITH NEWLYWEDS.

DEUTERONOMY 24.6  NO ONE SHALL PLEDGE THE LOWER AND UPPER MILLSTONES, FOR A MAN’S LIFE IS HE TAKING IN PLEDGE.

THE PLEDGE IS SOMETHING DELIVERED AS SECURITY FOR THE PAYMENT OF A DEBT.

SOME BIBLES READ, THE NETHER.  THE NETHER IS A MILLSTONE.  MILLSTONES ARE CIRCULAR STONES BETWEEN WHICH GRAIN OR ANOTHER SUBSTANCE IS GROUND FOR BREAD OR OTHER FOODS.

THEREFORE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES FORBIDS A LENDER TO TAKE AS SECURITY ANYTHING THAT THE BORROWER NEEDS FOR HIS LIVELIHOOD.

AND SINCE TORAH IS THE WORD OF GOD, GOD SEES THIS TYPE OF PLEDGE OF TAKING A MAN’S MILLSTONES THAT PREPARES GRAIN NECESSARY TO MAKE FOOD AS A CRIME.

DEUTERONOMY 24.7  IF A MAN IS FOUND STEALING ANY OF HIS BRETHREN OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, AND MAKES MERCHANDISE OF HIM, OR SELLS HIM, THEN THAT THIEF SHALL DIE, AND YOU SHALL PUT EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.

GOD’S LAW IS SIMPLE.  DEATH FOR KIDNAPPING.

DEUTERONOMY 24.8-9  TAKE HEED IN THE PLAGUE OF LEPROSY THAT YOU OBSERVE DILIGENTLY AND DO ACCORDING TO ALL THAT THE PRIESTS, THE LEVITES SHALL TEACH YOU, AS I COMMANDED THEM.  SO YOU SHALL OBSERVE TO DO.

REMEMBER WHAT THE LORD YOUR GOD DID TO MIRIAM BY THE WAY AFTER YOU CAME OUT FROM EGYPT.  THAT EVENT IS WRITTEN IN NUMBERS 12.1-16

VERSE 7  MY SERVANT MOSES IS FAITHFUL IN ALL MY HOUSE.  FAITHFUL IN HEBREW IS EH’MAHN MEANING, MOSES SUPPORTS GOD, HE IS FIRM FOR GOD, HE TRUSTS GOD, HE IS TRUE TO GOD, HE BELIEVES GOD, AND MOSES OBEYED GOD.

VERSE 8  WITH MOSES I WILL SPEAK MOUTH TO MOUTH, EVEN PLAINLY, AND NOT IN DARK SPEECHES.  THAT IS, GOD DID NOT SPEAK TO MOSES IN RIDDLES.  HE SPOKE TO MOSES IN PLAIN AND SIMPLE LANGUAGE FOR MOSES TO UNDERSTAND, AND FOR ALL THE WORLD TO UNDERSTAND WHEN READING THE SPOKEN WORDS OF GOD IN THE BIBLE.

AND THE LIKENESS OF THE LORD WILL MOSES LOOK AT. 

WHEN GOD SPOKE TO MOSES, MOST OFTEN GOD SPOKE FACE TO FACE WITH MOSES. 

AND GOD SAID TO AARON AND MIRIAM, WHY THEN WERE YOU NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK AGAINST MY SERVANT MOSES? 

EXODUS 33.11, EXODUS 34.10, NUMBERS 12.9-16

SO GOD IS SAYING, OBEY WHAT I COMMANDED MOSES WHEN IT INVOLVES LEPROSY, AND OBEY EVERYTHING ELSE THAT I SPEAK.

DEUTERONOMY 24.10-11  WHEN YOU LEND YOUR NEIGHBOR A LOAN OF ANY KIND, YOU SHALL NOT GO INTO HIS HOUSE TO GET HIS PLEDGE.

YOU SHALL STAND OUTSIDE AND THE MAN WHOM YOU LEND TO SHALL BRING THE PLEDGE OUTSIDE TO YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 24.12-13  AND IF THE MAN IS POOR, YOU SHALL NOT SLEEP WITH HIS PLEDGE.  (HIS PLEDGE IS THE MAN’S CLOTHING)

CERTAINLY YOU SHALL GIVE HIM BACK HIS PLEDGE WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN THAT HE SHALL SLEEP IN HIS OWN CLOTHING, AND BLESS YOU.  AND IT SHALL BE RIGHTEOUSNESS TO YOU BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

EXODUS 22.26-27, JOB 22.5-6, PROVERBS 22.26-27

DEUTERONOMY 24.14  YOU SHALL NOT OPPRESS A HIRED SERVANT WHO IS POOR AND NEEDY OF YOUR BROTHERS OR OF YOUR STRANGERS WHO ARE IN YOUR LAND WITHIN YOUR GATES.

DEUTERONOMY 1.16-18  MOSES IS REPEATING GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS TO THE PEOPLE, AND TO ALL THE WORLD, ALL THE THINGS THAT MUST BE DONE TO LEAD A GODLY AND RIGHTEOUS LIFE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 1.16  JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY MEANS, JUDGE ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

DEUTERONOMY 5.14-15  THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK, FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN SATURDAY IS A SABBATH OF REST FOR ALL THE WORLD.

AND DEUTERONOMY 10.17-19

DEUTERONOMY 24.15  IN THE SAME DAY YOU SHALL GIVE HIM HIS WAGES.  DO NOT LET THE SUN GO DOWN UPON IT FOR HE IS POOR AND SETS HIS HEART UPON IT, LEST HE CRY AGAINST YOU TO THE LORD AND IT IS SIN TO YOU.

REMEMBER THE PARABLE THAT MESSIAH TOLD WHERE EACH LABORER WAS PAID THE SAME DAILY WAGE THOUGH SOME WORKED LONGER HOURS THAN OTHERS?  MATTHEW 20.1-16

VERSE 8 EACH WORKER WAS PAID WHEN EVENING CAME, AS GOD COMMANDS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN DEUTERONOMY 24.15 

CONTINUE FROM MATTHEW 20. 9

THE FARMER WHO IS LIKE GOD, SAID, THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST, AND THE FIRST LAST.  REGARDING SALVATION, NO MATTER WHEN A PERSON IS SAVED AND BECOMES A CHILD OF GOD BEING OBEDIENT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, WHETHER YEARS AGO, OR TWENTY MINUTES AGO.  AND THE ONE WHO RECEIVED SALVATION TWENTY MINUTES AGO DIES SHORTLY THEREAFTER, BECOMES FIRST.  ALL HAVE THE SAME WONDERFUL REWARDS IN HEAVEN.

FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW CHOSEN, SAYS THE LORD.  BECAUSE SO FEW OBEY GOD BY OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  SAD.  LUKE 4.4

DEUTERONOMY 24.16  THE FATHERS SHALL NOT BE PUT TO DEATH FOR THE CHILDREN, NEITHER SHALL THE CHILDREN BE PUT TO DEATH FOR THE FATHERS.  EACH MAN SHALL BE PUT TO DEATH FOR HIS OWN SINS.

DEUTERONOMY 24.17-18  YOU SHALL NOT PERVERT THE JUDGMENT OF THE STRANGER OR THE FATHERLESS, NOR TAKE A WIDOW’S CLOTHING FOR A PLEDGE.

BUT YOU SHALL REMEMBER THAT YOU WERE SLAVES IN EGYPT, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD REDEEMED YOU, AND DELIVERED YOU FROM THERE.  THEREFORE I COMMAND YOU TO DO THIS THING.

GOD’S LAWS PROTECT THE MOST VULNERABLE OF PEOPLE.

DEUTERONOMY 24.19-22 WHEN YOU CUT DOWN YOUR HARVEST IN YOUR FIELD, AND HAVE FORGOTTEN A SHEAF IN THE FIELD, (A SHEAF IS A BUNDLE OF GRAIN) YOU SHALL NOT TURN BACK TO TAKE IT.  IT SHALL BE FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS, AND FOR THE WIDOW THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD MAY BLESS YOU IN ALL THE WORK OF YOUR HAND.

WHEN YOU BEAT THE FRUIT OF YOUR OLIVE TREES, YOU SHALL NOT SEARCH THE BRANCHES BEHIND YOU.  THEY SHALL BE FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS, AND FOR THE WIDOW.

WHEN YOU GATHER THE GRAPES OF YOUR VINEYARD, YOU SHALL NOT GATHER WHAT ARE LEFT BY THE REAPERS.  THEY SHALL BE LEFT FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS, AND FOR THE WIDOW.

AND REMEMBER THAT YOU WERE SLAVES IN THE LAND OF EGYPT.  THEREFORE I AM COMMANDING YOU TO DO THIS THING.

THE LORD OUR GOD IS KIND AND UNDERSTANDING WHO ALSO SAYS, DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO TO YOU.  MATTHEW 7.12

JEREMIAH 3.8 READS, FOR ALL THE CAUSES WHICH BACKSLIDING ISRAEL COMMITTED ADULTERY, I PUT HER AWAY AND GAVE HER A BILL OF DIVORCE.

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 24.1-4.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, JEREMIAH 3.8 READS, FOR ALL THE CAUSES WHICH BACKSLIDING ISRAEL COMMITTED ADULTERY, I PUT HER AWAY AND GAVE HER A BILL OF DIVORCE.

THE NAME ISRAEL ALSO APPLIES TO ALL JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

LET’S FIRST READ JEREMIAH 3.8, AND THEN DEUTERONOMY 24.1-4.

JEREMIAH 3.8, DEUTERONOMY 24.1-4

DEUTERONOMY 24.1-4  WHEN A MAN HAS TAKEN A WIFE AND MARRIES HER, AND IT COMES TO PASS THAT SHE FINDS NO FAVOR IN HIS EYES BECAUSE HE HAS FOUND SOME UNCLEANNESS IN HER, THEN LET HIM WRITE HER A BILL OF DIVORCE, AND GIVE IT IN HER HAND, AND SEND HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE.

THE WORD UNCLEANNESS COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD EHR’VAHT THAT MEANS NUDITY, SHAME, DISGRACE, FILTHINESS, WHICH IN THIS CASE MOST LIKELY MEANS FORNICATION AND ADULTERY.

FORNICATION IN THE CASE OF A MARRIED PERSON IS VOLUNTARY SEXUAL INTERCOURSE BETWEEN TWO PERSONS NOT MARRIED TO EACH OTHER.

CONTINUING WITH DEUTERONOMY 24.2-4, AND WHEN SHE HAS DEPARTED OUT OF HIS HOUSE, SHE MAY GO AND BE ANOTHER MAN’S WIFE.

AND IF THE SECOND HUSBAND HATES HER, AND WRITES HER A BILL OF DIVORCE, AND GIVES IT IN HER HAND, AND SENDS HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE, OR IF THE SECOND HUSBAND DIES WHICH TOOK HER TO BE HIS WIFE, HER FORMER HUSBAND WHO SENT HER AWAY MAY NOT TAKE HER AGAIN TO BE HIS WIFE AFTER THAT SHE IS DEFILED.  FOR, GOD SAYS, THAT IS ABOMINATION BEFORE THE LORD, AND YOU SHALL NOT CAUSE THE LAND TO SIN WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE.

THOUGH GOD HATES DIVORCE, I BELIEVE IF A MAN HAS DIVORCED HIS WIFE, OR A WOMAN HAS DIVORCED HER HUSBAND FOR WHATEVER REASON, AND HAS MARRIED ANOTHER, THE BIBLE SAYS, IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, THE LORD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.  1 JOHN 1.9

MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, SAYS, WHEREFORE I SAY UNTO YOU, ALL MANNER OF SIN AND BLASPHEMY SHALL BE FORGIVEN UNTO MEN, BUT THE BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN UNTO MEN.

HOWEVER IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT GOD SAYS, HER FORMER HUSBAND WHO SENT HER AWAY BECAUSE HE FOUND SOME UNCLEANNESS IN HER SHALL NOT TAKE HER AGAIN TO BE HIS WIFE AFTER THAT SHE IS DEFILED, FOR THAT IS ABOMINATION BEFORE THE LORD.

DEUTERONOMY 24.4, 1 JOHN 1.9, MATTHEW 12.31, MALACHI 2.16

OKAY, LET’S ADDRESS THIS SUBJECT OF GOD DIVORCING HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE ISRAEL.  BECAUSE I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I’VE BEEN READING AND STUDYING THE BIBLE FOR SOME 39 YEARS AND I DID NOT WANT TO BELIEVE THAT GOD DIVORCED HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE UNTIL IT HIT ME IN THE FACE IN THIS SCRIPTURE.  JEREMIAH 3.8

JEREMIAH 3.8 READS, AND I SAW, WHEN FORASMUCH AS BACKSLIDING ISRAEL HAD COMMITTED ADULTERY, I HAD PUT HER AWAY AND GIVEN HER A BILL OF DIVORCE, THAT YET TREACHEROUS JUDAH HER SISTER FEARED NOT, BUT SHE ALSO WENT AND PLAYED THE HARLOT.

BACKSLIDING IN HEBREW IS M’SHUVA, MEANING, TURNING AWAY, TURNING AWAY FROM GOD.

ISRAEL COMMITTING ADULTERY MEANS THE PEOPLE TURNED AWAY FROM THE LORD THEIR GOD BY WORSHIPING AND FEARING OTHER gods, AND REJECTING HIS SPOKEN WORD, HIS LAWS, AND HIS STATUTES WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

SO FOR ME TO BE SURE THAT GOD DIVORCED ISRAEL, I CHECKED ON THE WORDS OF JEREMIAH 3.8 IN HEBREW WHERE GOD SAYS THROUGH HIS PROPHET JEREMIAH, “AND GAVE HER A WRITING OF DIVORCE TO HER.”  THE HEBREW READS, VAH’EH’TAYNE  ET  SEY’FEHR  K’RE’TU’TEHY’HA AY’LAY’HA.  THAT MEANS AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, AND GAVE HER (ISRAEL) A WRITING OF DIVORCE TO HER.

SO YES, GOD HAS DIVORCED ISRAEL, HIS JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT WHAT IS SO IMPORTANT IS WHAT GOD SAYS IN JEREMIAH 3.1.

THEY SAY, IF A MAN PUTS AWAY HIS WIFE, AND SHE GOES FROM HIM AND MARRIES ANOTHER MAN, SHALL HE RETURN TO HER AGAIN?  SHALL NOT THE LAND BE GREATLY POLLUTED?  BUT YOU (ISRAEL) HAVE WHORED WITH MANY LOVERS (WITH MANY idols and gods).

BUT HERE IS THE GREAT, GREAT MERCY OF GOD.  GOD SAYS TO ISRAEL, HIS JEWISH PEOPLE, YET RETURN AGAIN TO ME, SAITH THE LORD.

JEREMIAH 3.1

BUT WHAT UNCLEANNESS DID THE JEWISH PEOPLE DO TO THE LORD THEIR GOD THAT PROVOKED THE LORD, THEIR HUSBAND, THEIR FATHER, AND THEIR GOD TO DIVORCE HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL?

GENESIS 17.8, EXODUS 4.22, JEREMIAH 3.14, MALACHI 1.6

GOD DIVORCED HIS PEOPLE AND PUT THEM AWAY THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF THEIR UNCLEANNESS, THEIR SINS AGAINST GOD, AND THEIR SIN OF WORSHIPING OTHER gods.

IN 722 B.C.E./B.C. DURING THE PERIOD OF THE DIVIDED MONARCHY, GOD SENT AWAY HIS JEWISH PEOPLE OF THE NORTHERN KINGDOM OF ISRAEL TO ASSYRIA BECAUSE ISRAEL SINNED AGAINST THE LORD THEIR GOD BY FEARING AND WORSHIPING OTHER gods, AND WALKING IN THE LAWS OF THE GENTILES.  AND GOD WARNED HIS PEOPLE THROUGH HIS PROPHETS TO TURN FROM ALL THEIR EVIL WAYS AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES ACCORDING TO ALL HIS LAW.  BUT THE PEOPLE WOULD NOT OBEY THE LORD THEIR GOD.  THEY DID NOT BELIEVE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.  THEREFORE THE LORD WAS VERY ANGRY WITH HIS PEOPLE AND HE REMOVED THEM OUT OF HIS SIGHT TO ASSYRIA.  2 KINGS 17.6-23

SIN IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE THAT ARE HIS LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, TEACHINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. 

NUMBERS 15.30-31, 1 JOHN 3.4

AND IN 586 B.C.E./B.C. GOD CAST HIS PEOPLE OUT OF JUDAH, THE SOUTHERN KINGDOM, INCLUDING HER ETERNAL CAPITAL JERUSALEM, FOR THE VERY SAME REASONS HE SENT HIS PEOPLE AWAY TO ASSYRIA 136 YEARS EARLIER.  SIN, WORSHIPING OTHER gods, DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND TNAKH, THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.  2 CHRONICLES 36.11-21

ISAIAH 54.5  THE LORD GOD OUR REDEEMER BUYS US BACK FROM THE SLAVERY OF SIN BY MAKING ATONEMENT FOR US AND LEADS US ON THE PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. 

ISAIAH 59.2  BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN  YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.

AND IN 70 C.E./A.D. GOD SENT HIS PEOPLE AWAY FROM ISRAEL TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH FOR ALMOST 2,000 YEARS FOR REJECTING THEIR MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM. 

LUKE 19.28-44, LEVITICUS 26.14-15, 33-46, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, JOHN 14.9

THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  HE IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON, THE SPIRIT, AND HE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS HA SHEM.  HE IS ELOHIM.

AND YES, GOD SAYS TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE, RETURN YOU BACKSLIDING ISRAEL, SAITH THE LORD, AND I WILL NOT CAUSE MY ANGER TO FALL UPON YOU, FOR I AM MERCIFUL, SAITH THE LORD, AND I WILL NOT KEEP ANGER FOREVER.  ONLY ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR INIQUITY THAT YOU HAVE TRANSGRESSED AGAINST THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND HAVE SCATTERED YOUR WAYS TO THE STRANGERS UNDER EVERY GREEN TREE, AND YOU HAVE NOT OBEYED MY VOICE SAITH THE LORD.  TURN O BACKSLIDING CHILDREN, SAITH THE LORD, FOR I AM MARRIED TO YOU. 

LET’S READ JEREMIAH 3.12-14

THE GOD OF ISRAEL, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB DIVORCED HIS JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR SINS AGAINST THE LORD THEIR GOD BY DISOBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE, AND THEIR SINS OF IDOLATRY, WORSHIPING OTHER gods.

SIN IS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, REJECTING GOD’S SPOKEN WORD IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  AND SIN IS REJECTING THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE DID NOT BELIEVE GOD.  THEY DID THE THINGS OF THE HEATHEN ROUND ABOUT THEM THAT GOD CHARGED THEM NOT TO BE LIKE THE GENTILES.

 

SO WHAT IS GOD’S REMEDY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO RETURN TO THE LORD THEIR GOD?

MANY JEWISH PEOPLE SAY THE SHEMA DAILY, SOMETIMES THREE TIMES A DAY.

THE SHEMA IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 6.4 THAT READS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

THAT IS THE REMEDY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND EVERY HUMAN BEING TO RETURN TO THE LORD, OR COME TO THE LORD.

SHEMA IN HEBREW MEANS HEAR, LISTEN INTENTLY, AND OBEY.  THAT MEANS, HEAR, LISTEN INTENTLY TO GOD, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  DO WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO. 

AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE WILL PREVENT YOU FROM SINNING AGAINST GOD.  

SO FOR JEWISH PEOPLE TO RETURN TO THE LORD OUR GOD, AND FOR GENTILES TO COME TO THE LORD THEIR GOD, YOU MUST OBEY GOD.  YOU MUST OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE THE BIBLE, AND THAT INCLUDES OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  IT IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, AND LUKE 4.4

THAT SHOULD NOT BE DIFFICULT FOR JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP TO OBEY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.

OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOT DIFFICULT, BUT FOR CHRISTIANS TO OBEY THE LAW IS PECULIAR BECAUSE CHRISTIANITY IS TAUGHT THE FALSE DOCTRINE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED. 

JESUS, WHO IS JEHOVAH, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, NEVER ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.  ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES IS IMPOSSIBLE.  IT IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  YET CHRISTIANITY HAS REMOVED THE LAW, THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD, FROM THE LIVES OF CHRISTIANS.

 MATTHEW.4.4, JOHN 14.9, 1 JOHN 5.3, DEUTERONOMY 28

1 JOHN 5.3  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND YOU MUST BELIEVE IN ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  THAT IS NOT DIFFICULT FOR JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP TO BELIEVE IN ONLY ONE GOD.

BUT MOST CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP TO BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods, AND THAT IS NOT BIBLICAL.  THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS THAT ONE GOD.  HE IS JEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY, AND HE IS THE SON AND THE MESSIAH, AND HE IS THE SPIRIT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

AND TO RETURN TO THE LORD YOU NEED ATONEMENT.  YOU NEED GOD TO FORGIVE YOU OF ALL YOUR SINS TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD.  YOU NEED A CLEAN SLATE.  AND REMEMBER, SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.  BREAKING ANY ONE LAW, OR DISOBEYING ANY ONE WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS SIN.

DURING TABERNACLE AND TEMPLE TIMES, ATONEMENT WAS MADE BY THE SHED BLOOD OF A CLEAN ANIMAL THAT WAS SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR AT THE TABERNACLE OR TEMPLE.  THAT IS WRITTEN IN TORAH.

BUT THERE HAS NOT BEEN A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM SINCE THE ROMANS DESTROYED THE TEMPLE IN 70 C.E/A.D. AND KILLED UPWARDS TO ONE MILLION JEWS IN THEIR FOUR YEAR WAR WITH ISRAEL.

AND TODAY SACRIFICES ARE FORBIDDEN BY GOD WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11

SO NOW WHAT?  HOW DO WE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE OUR SINS FORGIVEN BY GOD WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM?

WE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TOLD BY PEOPLE, NOT GOD, THAT WE CAN OBTAIN ATONEMENT BY PAYMENT OR COMPENSATION FOR WRONGS WE HAVE COMMITTED, OR THROUGH SUFFERING, OR THROUGH THE PERFORMANCE OF CERTAIN RITUALS, ALL ACCOMPANIED WITH REPENTANCE, AND CHANGING OUR LIVES TO THE GOOD.

BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS WHAT PEOPLE SAY.  AND THE PEOPLE WHO TEACH THAT ARE WRONG BECAUSE IT’S NOT BIBLICAL.

GOD SAYS THAT IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  THAT NEVER CHANGES.  IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOU, TODAY, YESTERDAY AND FOREVER.  LEVITICUS 17.11

AND THAT IS THE REASON GOD ALMIGHTY IN THE PERSON OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA CAME TO ISRAEL 2,000 YEARS AGO, TO BE AN OFFERING FOR OUR SINS.  THAT TOO IS WRITTEN IN THE PROPHETS IN ISAIAH 53.10 AND JEREMIAH 31.31-34

JEREMIAH 31.31-34  THE NEW COVENANT GOD MADE WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT MADE BY OUR MESSIAH YESHUA WHEN HE VOLUNTARILY GAVE HIS LIFE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD ON A ROMAN STAKE IN JERUSALEM.

THE COVENANT THAT GOD MADE WITH OUR FATHERS, THE COVENANT WE JEWISH PEOPLE BROKE, IS GOD’S SPOKEN WORD THAT IS LAW.  PSALM 105.8-10

AND BY HAVING FAITH IN OUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD’S NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT, AND OBEYING HIS EVERLASTING COVENANT, HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE THAT IS LAW, GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS, AND REMEMBER THEM NO MORE.

SO BECAUSE GOD CAN NOT DIE, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO IS MESSIAH YESHUA MADE HIMSELF A HUMAN BEING TO VOLUNTARILY GO THROUGH THE AGONY OF A HORRIBLE DEATH ON A ROMAN CROSS TO SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR ATONEMENT.  FOR THE ATONEMENT OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ATONEMENT FOR OTHERS. 

PSALM 22.1,15, IN THE HEBREW BIBLE VERSE 16, MATTHEW 27.46, 50

AND MESSIAH WAS BURIED, AND RAISED TO LIFE ON THE THIRD DAY, ALL TO ATONE FOR OUR SINS. 

AND FOR HIS JEWISH PEOPLE WHOM HE LOVES BEYOND IMAGINATION, HE DID THIS FOR US TO RETURN TO HIM, THE LORD OUR GOD.

BUT IT DOES NOT END THERE.  AFTER RECEIVING ATONEMENT THROUGH YOUR FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO LEAD A GODLY LIFE THAT WILL STOP YOU FROM SINNING AGAINST GOD. 

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, AND LUKE 4.4

AND WHEN YOU HAVE ATONEMENT THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF YOUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOU WILL BE A NEW PERSON.  AND SIN WILL DISAPPEAR FROM YOUR LIFE.  1 JOHN 1.9

REMEMBER, MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  AND THIS IS WHAT GOD ALMIGHTY THE MESSIAH SAID AND DID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER IN JERUSALEM THAT CHRISTIANITY CALLS THE LAST SUPPER.

AS THEY WERE EATING, MESSIAH TOOK MATZAH AND BLESSED IT AND BROKE IT, AND GAVE IT TO HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES, AND SAID, TAKE, EAT, THIS IS MY BODY.

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

AGAIN, THE NEW COVENANT IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA THAT REPLACES THE ANIMAL SACRIFICE FOR ATONEMENT WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  MATTHEW 26.26-28

THAT IS HOW EVERYONE, JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE RETURN TO THE LORD, OR COME TO THE LORD.  BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM SINNING AGAINST GOD, KNOWING THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, AND BELIEVING THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT THROUGH THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA BY HIS DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION, AND HIS SHED BLOOD.

AND FOR YOU, THAT LEADS TO RECONCILIATION AND PEACE WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH THE ONE AND ONLY GOD, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD OUR GOD.

HOW MERCIFUL IS OUR GOD. 

L’CHAIM, TO LIFE.

GOD’S LAWS FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HEALTH, AND PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF DISEASE IN THE ISRAELI MILITARY CAMP

Shalom,

Our Teaching from The Law of Moses will continue in The Hebrew Bible in Deuteronomy 23.11-26, or in The Christian Bible in Deuteronomy 23.10-25.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HEALTH, AND PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF DISEASE IN THE ISRAELI MILITARY CAMP.

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ IN THE HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.11-26, OR IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.10-25.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.11-12

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.10-11

IF THERE IS AMONG YOU ANY MAN THAT IS NOT CLEAN BY REASON OF UNCLEANNESS, THE SOLDIER MUST THEN LEAVE THE CAMP, AND HE MUST NOT REENTER THE CAMP.

BUT IT SHALL BE WHEN EVENING COMES, HE SHALL BATHE IN WATER, AND AT SUN DOWN HE MAY ENTER THE CAMP.

THE HEBREW WORDS FOR UNCLEANNESS, ARE MEEK’RAY LY’LAH MEANING AN ACCIDENT AT NIGHT THAT MANY INTERPRET TO MEAN A NOCTURNAL EMISSION.

LEVITICUS 18.5  GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL THEREFORE KEEP MY STATUTES AND MY JUDGMENTS.  THAT IS, YOU SHALL OBEY EVERY WORD, LAW, TEACHING AND INSTRUCTION THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, WHICH IF A PERSON (A JEWISH PERSON OR A NON JEWISH PERSON) DOES, HE OR SHE SHALL LIVE IN THEM.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

THE WORD LIVE COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD KHY THAT AMONG ITS MANY DESCRIPTIONS ALSO MEANS WELFARE.

WELFARE IS HEALTH, GOOD FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY, ETC.

PROSPERITY CERTAINLY IN GOD.  KNOWING AND BELIEVING GOD, AND UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHER GODS BESIDE HIM.  AND PERHAPS FINANCIAL PROSPERITY.

SO GOD IS SAYING TO YOU, IF YOU LIVE ACCORDING TO MY WORDS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU WILL HAVE GOOD HEALTH, GOOD FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY, ETC.

THAT IS WHAT GOD IS TELLING THE ISRAELI ARMY, AND THAT IS WHAT GOD IS TELLING YOU, AND THAT IS WHAT GOD IS TELLING ALL MANKIND; IF YOU LIVE ACCORDING TO MY WORDS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU WILL HAVE GOOD HEALTH, GOOD FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY, ETC.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.13-15

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.12-14

YOU SHALL HAVE AN AREA OUTSIDE THE CAMP WHERE YOU MAY RELIEVE YOURSELF.

YOU SHALL HAVE A SHOVEL IN ADDITION TO YOUR WEAPON, AND IT SHALL BE WHEN YOU SIT OUTSIDE IN THAT AREA, YOU SHALL TURN BACK AND COVER THAT WHICH COMES FROM YOU.

FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WALKS IN THE MIDST OF YOUR CAMP TO DELIVER YOU, AND TO GIVE UP YOUR ENEMIES BEFORE YOU.  THEREFORE SHALL THE CAMP BE HOLY THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SEES NO UNCLEAN THING IN YOU, AND TURNS AWAY FROM YOU.

GOD SAYS, THE CAMP SHALL BE HOLY THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SEES NO UNCLEAN THING IN YOU AND TURNS AWAY FROM YOU.

BEING HOLY IS A REQUIREMENT OF GOD TO BE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD, AND TO BE A SERVANT AND A WITNESS OF GOD.  AND THAT IS VERY SERIOUS BUSINESS BECAUSE GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL BE HOLY FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY.

AND BEING HOLY AS THE LORD YOUR GOD IS HOLY IS LIVING YOUR LIFE AS GOD LIVES HIS LIFE.  GOD LIVES HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND THAT IS BEING HOLY.  LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND THAT MEANS, LISTEN TO THIS, NOT ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT LIVING BY THE LAW OF MOSES.

THAT IS WHY YESHUA THE MESSIAH SAYS, BE THEREFORE PERFECT EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT.  BECAUSE GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LEAD A HOLY LIFE TO BE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD, AND TO BE HIS SERVANT AND HIS WITNESS.

GOD NEVER BREAKS HIS LAW.  BUT WE STUMBLE AND SIN FROM TIME TO TIME.  HOWEVER WE ARE FORGIVEN BY THE LORD OUR GOD WHEN WE CONFESS OUR SINS OF BREAKING ANY LAW WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, KNOWING THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL INIQUITY.

ADD TO THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO IS MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS HOLY. 

AND THERE IS NO WAY ON GOD’S EARTH THAT GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL LIVE IN ANY PERSON WHO REJECTS HIS LAW OF MOSES THAT IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  JOHN 14.9, 21-24

REMEMBER, MESSIAH YESHUA IS JEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER WHO SAYS, IF A PERSON LOVES ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS, MY COMMANDMENTS, MY LAW OF MOSES.  AND MY FATHER WILL LOVE HIM, AND WE WILL COME INTO THAT PERSON.  (WE BEING THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, AND THE SPIRIT WHO ARE ALL ONE AND THE SAME GOD) AND WE WILL MAKE OUR HOME WITH THAT PERSON.

LEVITICUS 19.1-2, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4, PSALM 32.5, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 5.48, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 12.44-45, ACTS 5.32, 1 PETER 1.15-16, 1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 1.9

DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4  GOD’S DOCTRINE, EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS, IS FOR THE ANGELS AND GOD HIMSELF IN HEAVEN, AND ALL MANKIND ON EARTH.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.16-17

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.15-16

YOU SHALL NOT DELIVER A SERVANT TO HIS MASTER WHO HAS SOUGHT REFUGE WITH YOU FROM HIS MASTER.

HE SHALL LIVE WITH YOU IN ANY PLACE HE MAY CHOOSE AMONG THE SETTLEMENTS WITHIN YOUR GATES WHERE IT IS PLEASING TO HIM.  YOU SHALL NOT OPPRESS HIM.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.18-19

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.17-18

THERE SHALL BE NO WHORE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL, NOR A HOMOSEXUAL OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL.

YOU SHALL NOT BRING THE WAGES OF A WHORE OR THE WAGES OF A DOG INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD IN FULFILLMENT OF ANY VOW.  FOR BOTH ARE ABHORRENT TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

A DOG IS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE A MALE PROSTITUTE OR A HOMOSEXUAL.  LEVITICUS 18.22

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.20-21

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.19-20

YOU SHALL NOT CHARGE INTEREST FOR LOANS TO YOUR BROTHER, WHETHER INTEREST ON MONEY, OR INTEREST ON FOOD, OR INTEREST ON ANYTHING THAT IS LOANED.

TO A STRANGER YOU MAY CHARGE INTEREST ON A LOAN, BUT TO YOUR BROTHER YOU SHALL NOT CHARGE INTEREST ON A LOAN THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD MAY BLESS YOU IN ALL THAT YOU SET YOUR HAND TO IN THE LAND WHERE YOU GO TO POSSESS.

FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY MOST BIBLE TEACHERS DO NOT TEACH GOD’S BLESSINGS FOR OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES???

GOD SAYS THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT HE WILL BLESS YOU FOR OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT HE WILL LAY CURSES ON YOU FOR DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.

A GOOD EXAMPLE OF OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS NOAH.  THE ONLY PEOPLE GOD SAVED IN THE FLOOD WERE NOAH AND HIS FAMILY.  EIGHT PEOPLE.  BECAUSE NOAH OBEYED GOD, AND HE WAS PERFECT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.  GENESIS 6.9

PAUL WRITES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.  (AGAIN, SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES)  BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH YESHUA THE MESSIAH OUR LORD. 

ROMANS 6.23, 1 JOHN 3.4

YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS JEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO SPOKE THE LAW OF MOSES TO MOSES.  AND YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS THE ONE WHO SAID, YOU SHALL BE HOLY FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY.  AND IT IS MESSIAH YESHUA WHO SAYS, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW OF MOSES, AND SO SHOULD EVERY BIBLE TEACHER.

EXODUS 33.11, LEVITICUS 19.1-2, DEUTERONOMY 28, MATTHEW 4.4

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.22-24

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.21-23

WHEN YOU VOW A VOW TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, YOU SHALL NOT DELAY TO PERFORM IT.  SURELY THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL REQUIRE IT OF YOU, AND IT SHALL BE SIN WITH YOU.

BUT IF YOU DO NOT VOW, IT SHALL NOT BE SIN FOR YOU.

WHAT HAS GONE FROM YOUR LIPS YOU SHALL KEEP AND SHALL PERFORM ACCORDING AS YOU HAVE VOWED TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, EVEN A FREE WILL OFFERING WHICH YOU HAVE PROMISED WITH YOUR MOUTH.

A FREE WILL OFFERING IN TABERNACLE AND TEMPLE TIMES WAS ONE OF THE SACRIFICES MADE BY AN INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTARILY FOR PERHAPS ATONEMENT FOR A SIN HE COMMITTED, OR SOMETHING ELSE.

YOUR FREE WILL OFFERINGS TO THE LORD ARE THE WORDS YOU SPEAK TO GOD IN PRAYER.  PSALM 119.108

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.25-26

CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.24-25

WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR NEIGHBOR’S VINEYARD, THEN YOU MAY EAT GRAPES TO YOUR DESIRE, TO YOUR FILL, BUT YOU SHALL NOT PUT ANY IN YOUR BASKET.

WHEN YOU ENTER ANOTHER MAN’S FIELD OF STANDING GRAIN, YOU MAY PLUCK EARS WITH YOUR HAND, BUT YOU MUST NOT LIFT A SICKLE TO YOUR NEIGHBOR’S GRAIN.

I WOULD SAY, BE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR NEIGHBOR’S PERMISSION TO ENTER HIS FIELD AND PICK FROM HIS CROPS.

SO IN CONCLUSION, I WILL REPEAT A FEW WORDS THAT GOD SAYS IN THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE ARMIES OF ISRAEL, TO THE ARMIES OF THE WORLD, TO YOU, AND TO ALL PEOPLES EVERYWHERE;

AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IF YOU WILL OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE AND DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, (THAT IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES) WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL SET YOU ON HIGH ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH,

AND ALL THESE BLESSINGS SHALL COME ON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU, IF YOU OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.

BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS IF YOU WILL NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE AND DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY THAT ALL THESE CURSES WILL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 28.1, 2, 15
