MY HANDS WILL I LIFT UP TO YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHICH I LOVE.

Shalom.

Our Teaching this morning will continue from Psalm 119.  And the writer’s words of encouragement will come from Verses 41-56.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS,  MY HANDS WILL I LIFT UP TO YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHICH I LOVE.

And With that said, let’s read Psalm 119.41-56.

PSALM 119.41  LET YOUR MERCIES COME ALSO UNTO ME, O LORD, EVEN YOUR SALVATION, ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

The Word MERCIES comes from The Hebrew KHEH’SEHD meaning KINDNESS, GOODNESS, AND FAVOR.

And the Word SALVATION comes from The Hebrew TEH’SHUA meaning, TO BE RESCUED, DELIVERED, HELPED, SAFETY, AND VICTORY.

Theologically, or according to The Study of GOD in The Bible, Salvation, also The Hebrew Yeshua, includes Eternal Life in Heaven when you live by every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses, and you have Messiah Yeshua for your Atonement, the forgiveness of all your sins.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, ISAIAH 53.10, ROMANS 5.11

We know from reading Psalm 119 that the writer is in love with GOD.  He or she shows it by loving GOD’S Word, living by every Word that The LORD Speaks in The Law of Moses and throughout The Bible.

YOU ALSO WILL HAVE GOD’S MERCIES AND SALVATION WHEN YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

PSALM 119.42  SO SHALL I HAVE WHEREWITH TO ANSWER HIM THAT REPROACHES ME.  FOR I TRUST IN YOUR WORD.

THE WORD WHEREWITH COMES FROM THE HEBREW DAH’VAHR MEANING WORD.  SO A BETTER TRANSLATION WOULD READ, SO SHALL I HAVE A WORD TO ANSWER THOSE THAT REPROACH ME.  FOR I TRUST IN YOUR WORD.

The Word REPROACH means, FINDING FAULT, or BLAMING YOU, or CRITICIZING YOU, or DISCREDITS YOU.  That is, A PERSON WHO SAYS SOMETHING THAT DAMAGES YOUR GOOD REPUTATION.

Trust in Hebrew is VAH’TAKH, that also means, CONFIDENCE, HAVING CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S WORD.

THEREFORE EVERY THING IN YOUR LIFE, WHETHER IT’S THINGS YOU DO, OR WORDS YOU SPEAK, SHOULD ALWAYS BE ACCORDING TO THE TEACHINGS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  AND HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S TEACHINGS WHEN YOU ANSWER THE PERSON WHO REPROACHES YOU.

PSALM 119.43  AND TAKE NOT THE WORD OF TRUTH UTTERLY OUT OF MY MOUTH, FOR I HAVE HOPED IN YOUR JUDGMENTS.

THE WRITER IS SAYING TO THE LORD, LORD GOD, NEVER REMOVE YOUR WORD OF TRUTH FROM THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK.  NEVER LET ME SPEAK THE FOOLISH WORDS THAT I SPOKE BEFORE I KNEW YOU THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE IN YOUR EARS.  FOR I HAVE HOPED IN YOUR JUDGMENTS.

IF THE WRITER IS CONNECTING THIS VERSE WITH THE PREVIOUS VERSE WHERE HE OR SHE WRITES ABOUT SOMEONE CRITICIZING YOU OR DISCREDITING YOU FOR SOMETHING YOU DID OR SAID THAT DOESN’T DESERVE SUCH AN ATTACK, THEN CONTINUE TO ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH AND HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S JUDGMENTS, HIS DECISIONS ON HOW HE WILL JUDGE THAT PERSON WHO IS ATTACKING YOU FOR NO GOOD REASON.

PSALM 119.44  SO SHALL I KEEP YOUR LAW CONTINUALLY FOREVER AND EVER.

NO MATTER WHAT, YOU WILL ALWAYS KEEP GOD’S TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE  CONTINUALLY, FOR EVER AND EVER.

PSALM 119.45  AND I WILL WALK AT LIBERTY, FOR I SEEK YOUR PRECEPTS.

WHEN YOU FOLLOW GOD’S PRECEPTS, THAT IS HIS LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, YOU WALK IN LIBERTY.  MEANING YOU LEAD YOUR LIFE FREE OF SIN AND FREE OF SPIRITUAL DEATH BECAUSE YOU OBEY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND YOU ARE PLEASING GOD.  YOU ARE PERFECT WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

GENESIS 6.9, 1 KINGS 8.61

GENESIS 6.9  NOAH WAS A JUST MAN AND PERFECT.  THAT IS, NOAH LIVED BY EVERY WORD, LAW, AND COMMANDMENT THAT GOD SPOKE IN HIS DAY. AND GOD SAVED ONLY NOAH, HIS WIFE, HIS THREE SONS AND THEIR WIVES OUT OF MILLIONS OR BILLIONS OF PEOPLE FROM THE FLOOD.  NOAH WAS NOT JEWISH.

PSALM 119.46  I WILL SPEAK OF YOUR TESTIMONIES ALSO BEFORE KINGS, AND I WILL NOT BE ASHAMED.

GOD’S TESTIMONIES ARE EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS TRUTH.

HERE IS A TESTIMONY OF GOD THAT IS TRUTH AND GREAT POWER.  GOD SPOKE THE CREATION INTO EXISTENCE.

GENESIS 1.1, 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, PSALM 33.6-9

THEREFORE WHEN YOU SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD TO SOMEONE, YOU ARE SPEAKING GREAT POWER OF GOD.

GOD SAYS, SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH.  IT SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERE I HAVE SENT IT.  ISAIAH 55.11

NOW, WHAT GOD DECIDES TO DO WITH THAT PERSON IS GOD’S DECISION.  BUT THEY HEARD THE POWERFUL WORD OF GOD.

THEREFORE NEVER BE ASHAMED OF SPEAKING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE TO ANYBODY, EVEN KINGS.

PSALM 119.47  AND I WILL DELIGHT MYSELF IN YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHICH I LOVE.

REMEMBER GOD’S COMMANDMENTS IN T’NACH, THE OLD TESTAMENT, AND HIS COMMANDMENTS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ARE THE SAME.  THEY ARE ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

GOD ALMIGHTY WHO IS MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.  IF YOU LOVE MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS THE FATHER AND GOD ALMIGHTY, THEN YOU SHOULD OBEY ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

JUST BECAUSE MESSIAH WAS A BABY BORN FROM A VIRGIN, AND GREW TO THE AGE OF 33, THE SON OF GOD IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER.  THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. 

REMEMBER, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE ALMIGHTY GOD.  BEING BORN OF A VIRGIN, AND SPEAKING THE CREATION INTO EXISTENCE IN SIX DAYS, AND RESTING ON THE SEVENTH DAY IS NOT A BIG DEAL TO GOD, BECAUSE GOD IS GOD, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.

GENESIS 18.14, MATTHEW 19.26, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.10-11,  JOHN 17.1-3, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, 15

SO WE SHOULD BE LIKE THE WRITER OF PSALM 119 WHO DELIGHTS IN GOD’S COMMANDMENTS AND LOVE THEM.

PSALM 119.48  MY HANDS ALSO WILL I LIFT UP TO YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHICH I LOVE, AND I WILL MEDITATE IN YOUR STATUES.

WE LIFT UP OUR HANDS TO THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA BECAUSE WE LOVE THE LORD, AND RESPECT HIM, AND THIRST AFTER HIM.  AND WE BLESS THE LORD AND LOVE BEING OBEDIENT TO THE LORD OUR GOD.  AND RAISING HANDS TO THE LORD IS A FORM OF PRAYER FOR US AND FOR OUR CHILDREN.

PSALM 28.2, PSALM 63.4, PSALM 68.31, PSALM 119.48, PSALM 134.2-3, PSALM 141.2, PSALM 143.6, LAMENTATIONS 2.19, 1 TIMOTHY 2.8

SO WE LIFT UP OUR HANDS TO THE LORD OUT OF LOVE AND RESPECT FOR HIS COMMANDMENTS.  AND WE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT ON GOD’S STATUTES BECAUSE THEY ARE GOD’S STATUTES.

PSALM 119.49  REMEMBER THE WORD UNTO YOUR SERVANT UPON WHICH YOU HAVE CAUSED ME TO HOPE.

THE HEBREW FOR WORD IS DAH’VAHR THAT ALSO MEANS PROMISE.

WE HOPE IN ALL GOD’S PROMISES.  WE LIVE OUR LIFE IN HOPE OF RECEIVING EVERY WONDERFUL PROMISE THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND GOD WILL GRANT YOU THOSE PROMISES BECAUSE YOU KEEP HIS WORD, AND HIS COMMANDMENTS.  AND YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO HAS FORGIVEN YOU ALL YOUR SINS.

PSALM 119.50  THIS IS MY COMFORT IN MY AFFLICTION, FOR YOUR WORD HAS REVIVED ME AND RESTORED MY LIFE TO ME.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO TEACH AND BELIEVE THAT GOD’S LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL.  MEANING, THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS FOR GOD’S LOVE.  DO ANYTHING YOU WANT AND GOD WILL LOVE YOU.  THAT IS JUST NOT TRUE.

THE WORD UNCONDITIONAL IS NEVER WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  BUT THE WORD IF IS WRITTEN HUNDREDS OF TIMES IN THE BIBLE.

GOD’S LOVE IS CONDITIONAL.

MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, SAYS, IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.  AND MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

DEUTERONOMY 7.9

GOD ALSO SAID, I LOVED JACOB AND I HATED ESAU.

WHY DID GOD LOVE JACOB AND HATE ESAU?  BECAUSE JACOB’S LIFE WAS ALL ABOUT GOD.  HE LIVED HIS LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE.

WHILE ESAU NEVER OBEYED A WORD GOD SAID.  THEREFORE GOD LOVED JACOB AND HATED ESAU.

WE SHOULD ALL BE LIKE JACOB AND NOT ESAU.

JOHN 14.9, 15, MALACHI 1.2, 3

THEREFORE GOD WILL ALWAYS COMFORT YOU IN YOUR AFFLICTION BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU BECAUSE YOU LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.

PSALM 119.51  THE PROUD HAVE HAD ME GREATLY IN DERISION.  YET HAVE I NOT DECLINED FROM YOUR LAW.

THE PROUD IN HEBREW IS ZAY’DEEM MEANING ARROGANT, PRESUMPTUOUS, AND PROUD.

DERISION MEANS, BEING MOCKED.

THE PROUD WHO DISOBEY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, MOCK US BECAUSE WE LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

BUT, AS THE WRITER SAYS, WE WILL NOT DECLINE FROM YOUR LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  WE WILL NOT TURN AWAY FROM YOUR LAW.

PSALM 119.52  I REMEMBERED YOUR JUDGMENTS OF OLD, O LORD, AND HAVE COMFORTED MYSELF.

THE WORDS, OF OLD, COME FROM THE HEBREW MAY’OLAM MEANING, FROM ETERNITY, ALWAYS, ETERNAL, FOREVER, EVERLASTING, EVER MORE.

GOD’S JUDGMENTS ARE FOREVER AND EVERLASTING.

GOD’S JUDGMENTS ARE HIS DECISIONS THAT HE MAKES ACCORDING TO HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEY ARE THE SAME, YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER.  ISAIAH 40.8

THEREFORE WE SHOULD ALWAYS COMFORT OURSELVES IN GOD’S JUDGMENTS, HIS LAWS AND HIS DECISIONS.

PSALM 119.53  HORROR HAS TAKEN HOLD UPON ME BECAUSE OF THE WICKED THAT FORSAKE YOUR LAW.

THE WORD HORROR IN HEBREW IS ZAHL’AH’FAH THAT MEANS, HORROR AND ANGER.

WICKED IN HEBREW IS RAH’SHAH THAT MEANS MORALLY WRONG, A BAD PERSON, CONDEMNED, GUILTY, WICKED, AND AN UNGODLY PERSON BECAUSE THEY DISOBEY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES.

SO THE WRITER OF PSALM 119 WRITES, ANGER AND HORROR HAVE TAKEN HOLD UPON ME BECAUSE THE WICKED FORSAKE YOUR LAW OF MOSES.

I PLACE THE BLAME ON BIBLE TEACHERS WHO HAVE CHEATED THE CHURCH FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS BY TEACHING THEM TO FORSAKE GOD’S LAW, HIS LAW OF MOSES BY TEACHING THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE DISHONEST TEACHING THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES IS TEACHING THE CHURCH THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE WORD OF GOD.  THAT IS AN OUTRAGEOUS LIE.

IT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GAVE EVERY LAW AND EVERY WORD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES TO MOSES FACE TO FACE FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, CHRISTIANS, AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY.

THE CHURCH ALSO TEACHES THE LIE THAT JESUS SUPPLANTED OR GOT RID OF THE OLD TESTAMENT WHICH IS FILLED WITH GOD’S SPOKEN WORD THAT ENDURES FOREVER. 

THEREFORE THE CHURCH TEACHES THAT JESUS ABOLISHED EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THAT IS A MESSAGE OF HORROR.

EXODUS 33.11, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, MALACHI 3.6, 1 PETER 1.23-25

EXODUS 33.11  THE LORD IS MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST.

I FOR ONE AM HORRIFIED AND ANGRY THAT THE CHURCH IS TAUGHT BY THE WICKED TO FORSAKE GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND TO FORSAKE GOD’S WORD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

PSALM 119.54  YOUR STATUTES HAVE BEEN MY SONGS IN THE HOUSE OF MY PILGRIMAGE.

BETTER SAID, YOUR LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS HAVE BEEN MY SONGS IN THE HOUSE OF MY PILGRIMAGE WHERE I AM A TEMPORARY RESIDENT ON THIS EARTH, FOR MY PERMANENT HOME IS IN HEAVEN.

SO IT’S A JOY WHEN WE SING SONGS OF PRAISE TO THE LORD THAT INCLUDE GOD’S STATUTES AND LAWS BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT OUR LIFE DOWN HERE IS TEMPORARY, BUT OUR LIFE WITH GOD ALMIGHTY THE MESSIAH YESHUA IN HEAVEN IS PERMANENT.

PSALM 119.55  I HAVE REMEMBERED YOUR NAME, O LORD IN THE NIGHT, AND HAVE KEPT YOUR TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

GOD HAS MANY WONDERFUL NAMES AND TITLES, BUT WE KNOW GOD WELL AS YESHUA HA MASHIAKH, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.

AND WE REMEMBER MESSIAH YESHUA AT NIGHT IN OUR PRAYERS AND MENTION HIS NAME WITH CONFIDENCE AND LOVE BECAUSE WE KEEP HIS TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES.

PSALM 119.56  THIS I HAD, BECAUSE I KEPT YOUR PRECEPTS.

WE HAVE ALL THE WONDERFUL PROMISES AND BLESSINGS OF GOD THAT INCLUDE HEALTH AND ETERNAL LIFE BECAUSE WE KEEP GOD’S PRECEPTS, HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE THAT WE KEEP THE LAWS OF GOD AS GOD COMMANDS US.  AND FOR THAT, GOD BLESSES US ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.  DEUTERONOMY 28.1-2

TO THAT WE SAY, BARUKH HA SHEM, BLESS THE LORD.

Shalom,

THE GODLY MAN AND WOMAN LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT. PART 2

Shalom,

We are continuing our teaching in Psalm 119 from Verses 25-40.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE GODLY MAN AND WOMAN LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT. PART 2

PSALM 119.25 THE WORD LAW IS WRITTEN 25 TIMES IN PSALM 119. AND THE HEBREW FOR LAW IS TORAH MEANING THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS.

THE WORD COMMANDMENTS IS WRITTEN 21 TIMES IN PSALM 119. AND THE HEBREW FOR COMMANDMENTS IS MEETZ’VOTE MEANING ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE.

THE WORDS FOR GOD’S “WORD” AND GOD’S “WORDS” ARE WRITTEN 44 TIMES IN PSALM 119. AND THE HEBREW FOR GOD’S “WORD” AND GOD’S “WORDS” ARE DAH’VAHR, D’VAH’REEM, AND EEM’RAH MEANING GOD’S WRITTEN WORD IN THE BIBLE IS LAW.

AND PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL GOD’S WRITTEN WORD IS.

THE WORD STATUTES IS WRITTEN 22 TIMES IN PSALM 119. AND THE HEBREW FOR STATUTES IS KHU’KEEM MEANING GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL GOD’S STATUTES ARE.

THE WORD JUDGMENTS IS WRITTEN 18 TIMES IN PSALM 119. AND THE HEBREW FOR JUDGMENTS IS MEESH’PAH’TEEM MEANING GOD’S LAWS, JUDGMENTS, DECISIONS, VERDICTS, AND SENTENCING THAT THE LORD GOD MAKES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL GOD’S JUDGMENTS ARE.

PSALM 119 IS A LOVE LETTER TO GOD ABOUT HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES FOR ALL THE WORLD TO READ, STUDY, LEARN, AND LIVE BY.

PSALM 119.25. MY SOUL CLEAVES TO THE DUST. QUICKEN ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

BETTER SAID, MY SOUL CLEAVES TO THE DUST, O LORD. REVIVE ME, AND RESTORE MY LIFE TO ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

I SEE THE WRITER BEING SAD BECAUSE HE OR SHE LIVES BY THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD THAT INCLUDES HIS LAWS AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. BUT MOST PEOPLE REJECT GOD BY REJECTING HIS LAW OF MOSES. AND THAT IS SAD FOR THE WRITER OF THE PSALM.

AND A SERIOUS PROBLEM FOR THE PERSON WHO REJECTS THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE WRITER ASKS GOD, REVIVE ME OF MY SADNESS O LORD, AND RESTORE MY LIFE TO ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

AND GOD PROMISES YOU THAT HE WILL RESTORE YOUR LIFE. HE WILL RESTORE THE LIFE OF THE CRUSHED AND THE HUMBLE SPIRIT. THOSE WHO OBEY GOD, WHO OBEY HIS WRITTEN WORD IN THE BIBLE, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD OF HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. ISAIAH 57.15

PSALM 119.26 I HAVE DECLARED MY WAYS, AND YOU HAVE HEARD ME. TEACH ME YOUR STATUTES.

HERE IS A PERSON WHO HAS WRITTEN THIS PSALM FOR ALL THE WORLD TO KNOW HOW WONDERFUL THE LAW OF MOSES IS, AND THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD POURS UPON ALL WHO LIVE BY GOD’S STATUTES, GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. DEUTERONOMY 28.1-14

BUT SO MANY PEOPLE BASH THE LAW OF MOSES. DO THEY KNOW THAT GOD’S TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES TELLS THE WORLD THE CURSES FOR DISOBEYING IT? DEUTERONOMY 28.15-68

TEACH ME YOUR STATUTES, THE BIBLE WRITER PLEADS TO GOD.

PSALM 119.27 MAKE ME TO UNDERSTAND THE WAY OF YOUR PRECEPTS. SO SHALL I TALK OF YOUR WONDERFUL WORKS.

BETTER SAID, MAKE ME TO UNDERSTAND THE WAY OF YOUR LAWS AND I WILL MEDITATE ON YOUR WONDERFUL WORKS.

YOUR PRECEPTS IN HEBREW IS PEE’KU’DAY’KHA THAT MEANS, COLLECTIVELY THE LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE WRITER ASKS GOD, MAKE ME UNDERSTAND THE WAY OF YOUR LAWS AND I WILL MEDITATE ON YOUR WONDERFUL WORKS.

WAY IN HEBREW IS DEH’REKH MEANING, A COURSE OF LIFE.

MAKE ME UNDERSTAND, O LORD, ALL THE BLESSINGS YOU POUR UPON THOSE WHO OBEY YOUR LAWS, AND I WILL MEDITATE ON YOUR WONDERFUL WORKS.

PSALM 119.28 MY SOUL MELTS FOR HEAVINESS. STRENGTHEN ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

ANOTHER WAY OF TRANSLATING THIS SCRIPTURE IS, MY SOUL WEEPS FOR SORROW. STRENGTHEN ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE WRITER OF PSALM 119 STANDS FOR THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO REJECT TO THEIR HURT.

AND THE WRITER’S HEART WEEPS WITH SORROW BECAUSE SADLY, SO MANY PEOPLE FOLLOW THE LIES OF THE FALSE BIBLE TEACHERS WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED. WHERE DOES GOD EVER SAY IN THE BIBLE THAT TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED? NOT ANY WHERE.

THEREFORE THE WRITER PLEADS WITH GOD, PLEASE LORD, STRENGTHEN ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD BECAUSE SO FEW LOVE YOU. JOHN 14.9, 15

AND YES, THE LORD STRENGTHENS THE RIGHTEOUS, THOSE WHO LIVE BY HIS WORD THAT IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

DEUTERONOMY 7.9, ISAIAH 40.31, ISAIAH 41.10, EPHESIANS 3.16, 1 PETER 5.6-10, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

PSALM 119.29 REMOVE FROM ME THE WAY OF LYING, AND GRANT ME YOUR LAW GRACIOUSLY.

HELP ME TO NEVER LIE, THE WRITER ASKS THE LORD. AND FROM YOUR LAW, FAVOR ME, BE GRACIOUS TO ME.

THAT IS A WONDERFUL REQUEST FOR THE GODLY PERSON WHO LIVES BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. HELP ME TO NEVER LIE, LORD GOD. AND FAVOR ME WITH YOUR BLESSINGS FOR LIVING MY LIFE ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

PSALM 119.30 I HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH. YOUR JUDGMENTS HAVE I LAID BEFORE ME.

TRUTH IS A RARE COMMODITY IN THIS WORLD. BUT WHEN YOU LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT TEACHES THE TRUTH, YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH.

GOD’S JUDGMENTS, HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE ARE BEFORE YOUR EYES IN THE BIBLE THAT YOU READ EVERY DAY. THEREFORE YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH, GOD’S TRUTH.

PSALM 119.31 I HAVE STUCK TO YOUR TESTIMONIES. O LORD, PUT ME NOT TO SHAME.

WHEN WE LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA, THAT HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING FOR OUR ATONEMENT, AND TESTIFY THE TRUTH, WE ARE ATTACKED FROM EVERY CORNER. OUR FRIENDS, OUR RELATIVES, CO-WORKERS THE CHURCH, THE SYNAGOGUE, FROM JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE. EXCEPT FROM GOD WHO BLESSES US.

LORD GOD, DON’T LET US FEEL SHAME FOR STANDING FOR YOUR TESTIMONIES, YOUR WORD THAT IS TRUTH.

PSALM 119.32 I WILL RUN THE WAY OF YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHEN YOU SHALL ENLARGE MY HEART.

THE PSALMIST IS SAYING, I WILL RUN THE WAY OF YOUR COMMANDMENTS WHEN YOU SHALL BROADEN MY UNDERSTANDING, AND MAKE ME WISER.

THINK ON THIS FOR A MOMENT. IT IS GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES THAT WHEN YOU LIVE BY THEM, GOD WILL BROADEN YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF HIS WORD, AND GIVE YOU GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF HIMSELF. AND MAKE YOU WISER.

PSALM 119.33 TEACH ME O LORD THE WAY OF YOUR STATUTES, AND I SHALL KEEP THEM TO THE END.

GOD’S STATUTES, HIS LAWS ARE LIKE GOOD FOOD. THEY NOURISH YOU WITH HEALTH, STRENGTH, AND LIFE, AND WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING. AND THEY GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE WHEN YOU HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

TEACH ME O LORD THE WAY OF YOUR STATUTES AND I WILL KEEP THEM TO THE END.

PSALM 119.34-35 GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING AND I SHALL KEEP YOUR LAW. YES, I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART.

MAKE ME TO GO IN THE PATH OF YOUR COMMANDMENTS FOR THAT IS MY DELIGHT.

I THINK ON THE WORDS OF MESSIAH YESHUA WHEN HE SAID, ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU. SEEK, AND YOU SHALL FIND. KNOCK, AND IT SHALL BE OPENED TO YOU.

ASK GOD TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND HIS LAWS WHICH ARE NOT DIFFICULT. BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF GOD’S LAWS, YOU WILL HAVE EVEN GREATER DELIGHT LIVING BY THEM. MATTHEW 7.7-8, 1 JOHN 5.3

PSALM 119.36-37 INCLINE MY HEART TO YOUR TESTIMONIES, AND NOT TO COVETOUSNESS.

TURN AWAY MY EYES FROM BEHOLDING VANITY, AND RESTORE MY LIFE TO ME IN YOUR WAY.

THE WRITER IS SAYING, LORD, GUIDE MY HEART IN YOUR WORD, AND NOT TO DISHONEST GAIN. TURN AWAY MY EYES FROM SEEING LIES AND RUIN. AND RESTORE MY LIFE TO ME IN YOUR WAY.

ALL THIS WRITER DESIRES IS TO LIVE HIS OR HER LIFE BY THAT WHICH GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. AND NOT TO DISHONEST GAIN.

AND TURN AWAY MY EYES FROM SEEING VANITY.

THE WORD SEEING IN HEBREW IS RAH’AH THAT NOT ONLY MEANS SEEING, BUT ALSO MEANS, RECOGNIZING, EXPERIENCING, AND OBSERVING.

VANITY IN HEBREW IS SHAV MEANING LIES AND RUIN.

WHEN IT COMES TO TEACHING THE BIBLE, VANITY, LIES AND RUIN ARE THE TEACHING OF THE DAY BY MANY FALSE BIBLE TEACHERS WHO TEACH THE LIES THAT BRING RUIN TO THE DOERS OF THE LIES THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, AND THERE IS A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

LORD GOD, THE WRITER WRITES, TURN AWAY MY EYES FROM SEEING VANITY. DO NOT EVER LET ME TEACH THOSE LIES THAT BRING RUIN.

PSALM 119.38 ESTABLISH YOUR WORD TO YOUR SERVANT WHO IS DEVOTED TO YOUR FEAR.

LORD GOD, THE WRITER PRAYS, ESTABLISH YOUR WORD IN MY HEART THAT IT MAY NEVER LEAVE ME. BECAUSE I AM DEVOTED TO THE FEAR OF THE LORD THAT CAUSES ME TO LIVE IN OBEDIENCE TO YOUR WORD ALWAYS.

PSALM 119.39-40 TURN AWAY MY REPROACH WHICH I FEAR, FOR YOUR JUDGMENTS ARE GOOD.

BEHOLD, I HAVE LONGED AFTER YOUR PRECEPTS. REVIVE ME, AND RESTORE LIFE TO ME IN YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

LORD GOD, REMOVE SHAME FROM ME WHICH I FEAR WHEN I SPEAK OF YOUR LAW OF MOSES, AND MESSIAH YESHUA. FOR YOUR JUDGMENTS AND LAWS ARE GOOD. AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS HA SHEM, GOD ALMIGHTY.

I HAVE FOR ALL THESE YEARS LONGED AFTER YOUR LAWS, THE PSALMIST WRITES. IN YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, O LORD, RESTORE MY LIFE FROM SADNESS BECAUSE SO MANY TRANSGRESS YOUR LAWS, AND CHANGE YOUR ORDINANCES, AND BREAK YOUR EVERLASTING COVENANT. RESTORE MY LIFE TO JOY IN YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS O LORD. ISAIAH 24.5-6

PSALM 119 TELLS THE WORLD HOW WONDERFUL THE LAW OF MOSES IS. AND MATTHEW 7.23 TELLS THE WORD HOW CRUCIAL IT IS TO LIVE BY THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE GODLY MAN AND WOMAN LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT.

Shalom,

Our Teaching this morning will be from Psalm 119, Verses 1 through 24.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR TEACHING IS, THE GODLY MAN AND WOMAN LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT.

And we will teach these verses line upon line.

PSALM 119.1 BLESSED ARE THE UNDEFILED IN THE WAY WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.

THE WORD UNDEFILED COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD TAH’MEEM THAT MEANS, PERFECT, BLAMELESS, TRUTHFUL, NOT SINNING.

SIN IS TRANSGRESSING THE LAW OF MOSES. 1 JOHN 3.4

THEREFORE THE JEWISH PERSON AND NON-JEWISH PERSON WHO LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, ARE BLESSED BY GOD, AND HAPPY BECAUSE THEY WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD WHICH IS TORAH, GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

LIVING BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE EXAMPLE MESSIAH YESHUA LEFT US THAT WE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS WHO DID NO SIN BECAUSE HE LIVES HIS LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

1 JOHN 3.4, 1 PETER 2.21-22

DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD AND THE LORD ARE WRITTEN OVER 2,600 TIMES IN THE LAW OF MOSES?

BUT THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH BY ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES FOR ALL CHRISTIANS HAS WIPED OUT ALL GOD’S LAWS LEAVING THE CHRISTIAN LAWLESS.

WHICH BRINGS TO MIND THE WORDS OF MESSIAH YESHUA, SAYING TO THOSE WHO DO NOT DO THE WILL OF GOD; THE WILL OF GOD IS OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES. THOSE WHO DO NOT DO THE WILL OF GOD, MESSIAH SAYS, WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BECAUSE THEY DISOBEY THE LAW OF MOSES. AND MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, WILL SAY TO THEM, DEPART FROM ME YOU THAT WORK INIQUITY.

MATTHEW 7.21-23, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8

THE GREEK WORD FOR INIQUITY IS ANOMIA, MEANING TRANSGRESSING THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN IT.

THEREFORE THE CHURCH TEACHES THEIR PEOPLE TO DISOBEY GOD.

THEREFORE BY DISOBEYING GOD, THEY WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN UNLESS THEY REPENT ACCORDING TO THE TEACHING OF GOD. YOU CAN FIND GOD’S TEACHING ON REPENTANCE IN EZEKIEL 18.20-22.

OR UNLESS CHURCH PEOPLE TRULY LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL. GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

PSALM 119. 2 BLESSED ARE THEY WHO KEEP HIS TESTIMONIES, AND THAT SEEK HIM WITH THE WHOLE HEART.

GOD’S TESTIMONIES ARE EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION. AND THOSE WHO KEEP HIS TESTIMONIES, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS ARE BLESSED.

THOSE WHO SEEK THE LORD GOD WITH THEIR WHOLE HEART WILL FIND THE TRUTH IN THE BIBLE. THE TRUTH, IN HEBREW IS, SHEMA YISRAEL, ADONAI ELOHAYNU, ADONAY EKHUD.

HEAR O ISRAEL, OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29

IF WHAT YOU ARE BEING TAUGHT BY TEACHER, BOOK, FRIEND, OR RELATIVE DOES NOT LINE UP WITH THAT SIMPLE TEACHING, TOSS THEIR FALSE TEACHING AND MOVE ON.

SEEKING GOD WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART IS OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND KNOWING AND BELIEVING THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.10-11, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

PSALM 119.3 THEY DO NO INIQUITY. THEY WALK IN HIS WAYS.

DOING NO INIQUITY (ANOMIA) MEANS YOU ARE NOT VIOLATING THE LAW OF MOSES. VIOLATING THE LAW OF MOSES IS SIN. 1 JOHN 3.4

THEREFORE THE BLESSED OF GOD, AND THE UNDEFILED WALK IN THE WAYS OF GOD.

THINK ON THAT FOR A MINUTE. THE WAYS OF GOD ARE WALKING IN TORAH, HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. GOD’S WORD IS LAW.

BEING HOLY IS BEING LIKE GOD. OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, THE SAME LAW GOD WALKS IN THROUGHOUT ETERNITY WITHOUT BEGINNING, WITHOUT END.

LEVITICUS 19.1-2, 1 PETER 1.14-16

PSALM 119.4 YOU HAVE COMMANDED US TO KEEP YOUR PRECEPTS DILIGENTLY.

GOD HAS COMMANDED US TO KEEP HIS PRECEPTS DILIGENTLY. THAT IS BEING OBEDIENT TO ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

BUT THE CHURCH AND CERTAIN MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS DO NOT SEE GOD’S COMMANDS AS BEING IMPORTANT.

BUT WITH AUDACITY AND TOTAL DISREGARD OF THE LORD GOD OF CREATION, THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

PSALM 119.5 O THAT MY WAYS WERE DIRECTED TO KEEP YOUR STATUTES.

BETTER TRANSLATED, O THAT MY WAYS WERE FIXED AND ESTABLISHED TO KEEP YOUR LAWS.

THAT IS THE WRITER’S DESIRE, THAT HIS WAYS WERE FIXED AND ESTABLISHED TO KEEP TORAH, THE LAWS OF GOD. OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS WORK WITH BLESSINGS AND JOY.

AND GOD SEES US AS BEING PERFECT WHEN WE WALK IN HIS TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES.

BUT WE DO SIN FROM TIME TO TIME. AND WE ARE TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE THAT WHEN WE SIN BY BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, WE CAN CONFESS OUR SINS TO GOD, FOR GOD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL INIQUITY.

1 KINGS 8.61, 1 JOHN 1.9

HERE IS AN IMPORTANT TEACHING FROM THE BIBLE.

1 KINGS 8.61 READS, LET OUR HEART THEREFORE BE PERFECT WITH THE LORD OUR GOD, TO WALK IN HIS STATUTES, AND TO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS AS AT THIS DAY.

THE WORD COMMANDMENTS COMES FROM THE HEBREW MEETZ’VOTE MEANING, COLLECTIVELY ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THEREFORE WHENEVER YOU SEE THE WORD COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS GOD’S COMMANDMENTS IN TNACH, THE OLD TESTAMENT, AND THE NEW TESTAMENT, KNOW THAT COMMANDMENTS ALWAYS MEAN COLLECTIVELY ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

COMMANDMENTS DO NOT MEAN JUST THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. COMMANDMENTS MEAN ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

IN HEBREW, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE AH’SEH’REHT HAHD’VAH’REEM, THE TEN WORDS.

PSALM 119.6 THEN SHALL I NOT BE ASHAMED WHEN I HAVE RESPECT TO ALL YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

YOU SHOULD NEVER BE ASHAMED TO KEEP ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS. YOU SHOULD NEVER BE ASHAMED TO OBEY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES. BECAUSE YOU SERVE THE LORD YOUR GOD AND IT IS HE, AND NO ONE ELSE WHO GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU AS A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT THAT LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE.

THEN YOU FOLLOW THE LAW OF MOSES, AND GOD WILL GIVE YOU HIS HOLY SPIRIT. ACTS 5.32

PSALM 119.7. I WILL PRAISE YOU WITH UPRIGHTNESS OF HEART WHEN I SHALL HAVE LEARNED YOUR RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENTS.

WHEN YOU LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU WILL PRAISE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH UPRIGHTNESS OF HEART BECAUSE YOU HAVE LEARNED GOD’S RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENTS WITH JOY AND THANKSGIVING. GOD’S RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENTS ARE YOUR VERDICTS AND DECISIONS THAT ARE ACCORDING TO HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

PSALM 119.8 I WILL KEEP YOUR STATUTES. O FORSAKE ME NOT UTTERLY.

WHEN YOU LIVE BY GOD’S STATUTES, GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU, OR YOUR FAMILY.

PSALM 119.9 HOW SHALL A YOUNG MAN CLEANSE HIS WAY? BY TAKING HEED ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.

THE YOUNG AND OLD AND ALL IN BETWEEN CLEANSE THEIR WAY BY LIVING ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR WORD, AS IN THE WORD OF GOD, IS DAH’VAHR THAT MEANS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, DECREE. A DECREE, AS YOU KNOW, IS A FORMAL ORDER THAT HAS THE FORCE OF LAW.

EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE ARE DECREES, HAVING THE FORCE OF LAW.

PSALM 119.10 WITH MY WHOLE HEART HAVE I SOUGHT THEE. O LET ME NOT WANDER FROM YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

THE GODLY PERSON AGREES WITH AND DOES EVERY WORD OF PSALM 119. YOU SEEK THE LORD WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART. YOU LEARN HIS WORD AND LIVE BY GOD’S WAYS. AND YOU DO YOUR BEST NOT TO WANDER FROM THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD.

PSALM 119.11 YOUR WORD HAVE I HID IN MY HEART THAT I WILL NOT SIN AGAINST YOU.

THE FOUNDATIONAL TEACHING OF GOD IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD, OBEDIENCE TO HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

YOU MIGHT BELIEVE IN YESHUA / JESUS BUT IF YOU DO NOT OBEY GOD’S SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AS PAUL TEACHES IN 1 CORINTHIANS 15.1-2, YOU HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN. ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 7.1, ROMANS 8.6-7

SO READ THE BIBLE, STUDY IT, AND OBEY AND DO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS. AND HIDE HIS WORD IN YOUR HEART SO THAT YOU WILL NOT SIN AGAINST THE LORD YOUR GOD. THAT IS PERFECTION IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. AND WITH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD, SUCCESSFUL, AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN. AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

PSALM 119.12 BLESSED ART THOU O LORD, TEACH ME YOUR STATUTES.

WHEN YOU SET YOUR HEART TO LIVE BY GOD’S STATUTES, HIS LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, YOU WILL BLESS THE LORD IN TRUTHFULNESS AND JOY.

PSALM 119.13 WITH MY LIPS HAVE I DECLARED ALL THE JUDGMENTS OF THY MOUTH.

THAT IS THE CHILD OF GOD, THE TRUE WITNESS OF GOD. YOU DECLARE WITH YOUR LIPS ALL GOD’S JUDGMENTS, ALL HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. MANY WILL REJECT YOUR WORDS, BUT GOD WILL BLESS YOU, THE UNDEFILED BECAUSE YOU WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.

PSALM 119.14 I HAVE REJOICED IN THE WAY OF YOUR TESTIMONIES AS MUCH AS IN ALL RICHES.

RICHES ARE FINE, BUT DO NOT GIVE ETERNAL LIFE. OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S WORD, AND HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IS GREATER THAN ALL RICHES, HAVING GOD’S PROMISE OF ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

PSALM 119.15 I WILL MEDITATE IN YOUR PRECEPTS AND HAVE RESPECT TO YOUR WAYS.

THE CHILD OF GOD IS BOUND IN THE BUNDLE OF LIFE WITH THE LORD THEIR GOD ALWAYS THINKING ON GOD’S WORD, AND DOING AS GOD SAYS.

PSALM 119.16 I WILL DELIGHT MYSELF IN YOUR STATUTES. I WILL NOT FORGET YOUR WORD.

ALTHOUGH MANY WILL FOOLISHLY SAY THAT WE WHO LIVE BY THE LAW OF MOSES ARE LEGALISTS. BUT RATHER, WE DELIGHT OURSELVES IN GOD’S STATUTES, AND WILL NOT FORGET HIS WORD.

WE OBEY GOD, NOT MAN.

PSALM 119.17 DEAL BOUNTIFULLY WITH YOUR SERVANT THAT I MAY LIVE AND KEEP YOUR WORD.

WE HAVE GREAT HOPE IN GOD BECAUSE WE SERVE THE LORD OUR GOD BY OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. AND WE KNOW THAT GOD WILL DEAL BOUNTIFULLY WITH US. HE WILL TREAT US WELL, AND SHOW US GOOD IN A ROUGH AND TUMBLE WORLD.

PSALM 119.18 OPEN THOU MINE EYES THAT I MAY BEHOLD WONDROUS THINGS OUT OF YOUR LAW.

THAT IS A MIGHTY REQUEST TO GOD, TO OPEN YOUR EYES TO SEE THE WONDERFUL THINGS IN HIS LAW. BECAUSE THE LAW IS OF GOD, SIMPLE, AND EASY, AND NOT DIFFICULT, THAT HAS WONDERFUL THINGS IN IT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. 1 JOHN 5.3

PSALM 119.19 I AM A STRANGER IN THE EARTH. HIDE NOT YOUR COMMANDMENTS FROM ME.

IT’S TRUE, WE ARE STRANGERS ON THIS EARTH FOR OBEYING GOD, AND KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS. BUT WE ARE ALSO PART OF THE FEW OF WHOM MESSIAH SAYS, MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN. THE FEW WHO SPEND ETERNITY WITH GOD IN HEAVEN.

MATTHEW 22.14, MATTHEW 7.21-23

PSALM 119.20 MY SOUL BREAKS FOR THE LONGING THAT IT HAS TO YOUR JUDGMENTS AT ALL TIMES.

THE CHILD OF GOD YEARNS TO PLEASE GOD AT ALL TIMES BY OBEYING HIM. IT IS JOY TO OUR HEART BECAUSE WE PLEASE GOD, AND DO RIGHT.

PSALM 119.21 YOU HAVE REBUKED THE PROUD THAT ARE CURSED WHICH DO ERR FROM YOUR COMMANDMENTS.

GOD BLESSES THOSE WHO OBEY HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. AND HE CURSES THOSE WHO DO NOT OBEY HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. IT IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 28

GOD WILL ALSO DESTROY THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO DISOBEY HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES WHEN HE DESTROYS THE WORLD. THAT IS ALSO WRITTEN IN ISAIAH 24.1-6

OBEY GOD RATHER THAN THE FALSE BIBLE TEACHERS.

PSALM 119.22 REMOVE FROM ME REPROACH AND CONTEMPT, FOR I HAVE KEPT YOUR PRECEPTS.

AND GOD WILL REMOVE FROM YOU REPROACH, AND CONTEMPT. THAT IS GOD WILL NOT FIND FAULT IN YOU, NOR BLAME YOU FOR ANYTHING, OR DESPISE YOU BECAUSE YOU OBEY THE LORD YOUR GOD BY LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. AND YOU HAVE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA BY HIS SHED BLOOD. LEVITICUS 17.11

PSALM 119.23 PRINCES ALSO DID SIT AND SPEAK AGAINST ME. BUT YOUR SERVANT DID MEDITATE IN YOUR STATUTES.

YES, PEOPLE IN HIGH PLACES SIT AND SPEAK AGAINST US FOR OBEYING GOD AND HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. BUT WE WILL CONTINUE TO MEDITATE ON GOD’S STATUTES AND DO WHAT IS WRITTEN IN HIS LAW.

PSALM 119.24 YOUR TESTIMONIES ALSO ARE MY DELIGHT AND MY COUNSELORS.

YES, AND ALSO GOD’S TESTIMONIES, HIS WORDS SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE ARE OUR DELIGHT AND OUR COUNSELORS THAT ADVISE US AND DIRECT OUR STEPS THROUGHOUT LIFE.

HOW FORTUNATE YOU ARE WHEN YOU OBEY GOD. YOU ARE BLESSED AND UNDEFILED IN THE WAY WHEN YOU WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD.

THE FUTURE KING OF ISRAEL IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM.

Shalom,

Our Teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses continues in Deuteronomy 17.14-20.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE FUTURE KING OF ISRAEL IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 17.14-20.

A little over 3,000 years ago, The Children of Israel, today The Jewish People, asked The Prophet Samuel for a king to judge them like all the nations. But the request upset Samuel because he knew that GOD alone is the sole King of Israel and The Jewish People.

But The LORD said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of The People in all that they say, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me that I should not Reign over them. 1 SAMUEL 8.1-10

The first King of Israel whom GOD chose was Saul, followed by David and Solomon who were both chosen By GOD to reign in Israel.

After the division of Israel in the days immediately following King Solomon’s death, some 35 kings, including Saul, David, and Solomon have reigned in Israel, and in the northern kingdom of Israel, and in the southern kingdom of Judah.

The last kings were Jehoichin and Zedekiah. And they reigned in the southern kingdom of Judah at the time The LORD GOD exiled The Jewish People to Babylon in 586 B.C.E./B.C. for seventy years because of their sins against The LORD their GOD.

2 CHRONICLES 36.11-21

There have been no kings since in Israel. Today, elected Prime Ministers rule in The Land of Israel.

The King that this Message will be focused on is The King Who will Reign in The Messianic Kingdom in Israel, or as some Jewish People call it, The Kingdom of GOD on earth, or as Christianity calls it, The One Thousand Year Millennium.

AND THAT KING WHO WILL REIGN IN THE FUTURE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL FOR 1,000 YEARS IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, HA SHEM ELOHIM.

And in this teaching, GOD lays out the rules for The Kings of Israel, even The future King of Israel, Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD Himself Who will rule in The 1,000 year Messianic Kingdom on earth in Israel, The Everlasting Possession of The Jewish People.

GENESIS 17.8, ZECHARIAH 9.9, ZECHARIAH 14.1-9, 16, 17

DEUTERONOMY 17.14 This teaching came into effect when Israel conquered the land of Canaan some 3,400 years ago that became The Land of Israel. The land of Canaan and The GOD given borders of Israel are from a river in Egypt to the Euphrates River that runs through Syria and Iraq. GENESIS 15.18-21

The name Israel was first given to Jacob after he wrestled with GOD from evening to morning at a crossing near a brook in Canaan. And GOD said to Jacob, Your name shall not be called Jacob any more but Israel, for as a Prince you have power with GOD and with men and have prevailed.

That is the meaning of Israel. For as a Prince you have power with GOD and with men and have prevailed. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, For I have seen GOD Face to face, Jacob said. GENESIS 32.22-30

The Jewish People, The Children of Israel descend from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Jacob’s twelve sons. But Jacob is hated today by many non Jewish People who associate many lies to Jacob because his name is Israel the name of The Jewish People and the name of Their Jewish Homeland Israel. GENESIS 21.12

After GOD exiled The Jewish People from Israel in 70 C.E./A.D. to the four corners of the earth, many nations occupied Israel, such as Assyria, Babylon, Persia, which is current day Iran, Greece, Rome, the Byzantines of the eastern Roman Empire, The Islamic Arabs, The Christian Crusaders, the Muslim Mamelukes, The Ottoman Turks, and finally the British from 1917 to 1948.

Yet there has always been a Jewish presence in Israel for 3,400 years to this day.

When millions of Jewish People returned to Israel from the European Nazi death camps after World War 2, The United Nations voted to divide Palestine, a name given to Israel by the Romans in 135 C.E./A.D. Palestine became a much smaller country than The GOD given borders of Israel from a river in Egypt to The Euphrates River. Much of The GOD Given Land of Israel is currently occupied by Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, and the Palestinian Arabs.

And in 1948, Israel again became a sovereign Country of The Jewish People. But The Jewish People must continue to fight for its existence, and freedom, and sovereignty as many of the same conquering nations seek to destroy The Jewish People and occupy their Land. That will never happen because The GOD of Israel and The Jewish People will not let it happen. And Messiah Yeshua is The GOD of Israel.

The Jewish People and the Name Israel will remain forever, but the current nations of today will become but a memory. ISAIAH 66.22

And GOD will restore The GOD Given Borders of Israel to The Jewish People when The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE JEWISH KING, MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS to establish His Messianic Kingdom in Israel from a river in Egypt to the Euphrates River.

DEUTERONOMY 17.15 THE KING OF ISRAEL MUST BE JEWISH.

A STRANGER, A NON JEWISH PERSON, CAN NEVER BE KING OF ISRAEL. IT IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THAT KING WHO WILL REIGN OVER ISRAEL AND THE WORLD IN THE FUTURE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL WILL BE YESHUA HA MASHIAKH, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, AND THE KING OF ISRAEL.

MATTHEW 1.1-6, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2

DEUTERONOMY 17.16-17 The Jewish Kings of Israel are Commanded by GOD not to multiply horses to themselves, nor cause The People to return to Egypt. Nor shall he multiply wives to himself that his heart does not turn away from The LORD His GOD, nor shall he greatly multiply to himself gold and silver.

The Bible says that The LORD GOD, Messiah Yeshua will return and set up His Messianic Kingdom in Israel after the great tribulation.

For Messiah says, For then shall there be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And except those days shall be shortened, Messiah says, there should no flesh be saved. But for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened. MATTHEW 24.1-3, 14-22

LISTEN TO THESE VERY IMPORTANT WORDS.

When Messiah returns, GOD says in The Prophets, The curse will devour the earth. And they that dwell on it are desolate, guilty and destroyed. Therefore the people of the earth will be burned, and few men left because the earth is defiled under it by the people who live on it. Because they have transgressed GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses. They have changed The Ordinance of GOD, GOD’S Laws, and Commandments written in The Law of Moses. And they have broken GOD’S Everlasting Covenant, His Word and His Law of Moses. ISAIAH 24.1-6, PSALM 105.8-10

Those who will enter The Messianic Kingdom, The 1,000 year millennium with Messiah Yeshua Reigning over it, followed by Eternal Life in Heaven will be His Chosen and Elect. Those people who followed The Gospel of GOD.

The Gospel of GOD is living your life according to every Word that Proceeds out of The Mouth of GOD written in The Bible, that includes The Law of Moses. Believing in One GOD Who is Messiah Yeshua. And having Messiah Yeshua for your Atonement, the forgiveness of all your sins.

MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

Those are GOD’S Elect and Chosen who will be with GOD in The Messianic Kingdom in Israel, who inherit Eternal Life in Heaven.

The disobedient to GOD, the disobedient to His Word, the disobedient to His Law of Moses, and the disobedient to His Prophets will not be there.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT WILL BE PREACHED TO ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS TO ALL NATIONS. OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES. BELIEF IN ONE GOD, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD, AND YOUR ATONEMENT.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF GOD FOR A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH WITH HEALTH, SUCCESS, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

Also those who will Join The LORD and His Chosen and Elect in The Messianic Kingdom, and in Heaven are the Gentiles who have blessed The Jewish People and Israel.

And The Messianic Kingdom in Israel will be like The Garden of Eden.

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46, ISAIAH 51.1-3

ISAIAH 51.1, THOSE WHO FOLLOW AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT, THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.

I was told recently by a person who has been a Christian for many years that Jesus supplanted The Old Covenant.

Meaning that Jesus replaced and got rid of The Old Testament that contains The Law of Moses that has GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions Written in it. And that Jesus got rid of The Prophets and The Writings such as The Psalms and Proverbs.

That statement is about another jesus. Proof example of what Paul teaches about another jesus in 2 Corinthians 11.1-4

The jesus of the church who abolished The Law of Moses for Christianity is another jesus whom Paul and the other New Testament Writers and all the Writers of The Bible never taught.

And this person also said that Judaism is a stumbling block. I guess a stumbling block to salvation, or a stumbling block to Jesus, or a stumbling block to eternal life in Heaven.

Besides making an anti-Semitic statement, that is so untrue.

GOD Spoke His Word to The Jewish People in The Old and New Testaments. And Jewish People recorded GOD’S Spoken Word in Hebrew from Genesis through Revelation for all the world to know and believe GOD.

To know and believe there is only one GOD, and to know The Truth of GOD. To live by GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Commandments that are written in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses. ISAIAH 43.10-11

And that The Jewish Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER gave His Life as a Human Being to be your Atonement.

The New Testament was translated from the original Hebrew to Greek to other languages.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS FROM GOD.

The Law of Moses is not from The Jewish People. The Words of The Law of Moses were spoken by GOD Face to face to Moses, and given to Moses by GOD for all the world to live by. EXODUS 33.11

GOD does not have one Law for The Jewish People, and no Law for Christianity. GOD only has One Law for all the world, and that Law is The Law of Moses.

THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE SAYS, IT IS EASIER FOR HEAVEN AND EARTH TO PASS THAN ONE TITTLE OF THE LAW TO FAIL.

LUKE 16.17

MEANING, NOT ONE DOT, NOT ONE STROKE, NOT ONE LETTER, NOT ONE WORD OF THE LAW OF MOSES WILL EVER CHANGE, OR END, OR DISAPPEAR.

Judaism is certainly not a stumbling block.

But Christian doctrine is a stumbling block for Salvation because Christian doctrine teaches that GOD’S Word Written in The Law of Moses is abolished by another jesus.

And Christian doctrine teaches a trinity of three different gods. There is no such thing as a trinity of three different gods in The Bible.

The trinity jesus is not The Jesus of The Bible but another jesus, and not GOD ALMIGHTY but some other god who has supplanted The Old Testament in the doctrine of Christianity. The jesus who supplanted The Old Testament for Christianity is an anti GOD, an anti Christ.

That type of teaching destroys the entire Word of GOD for Christians. It is hateful and disrespectful to GOD.

Paul wrote about being saved. He writes IF you keep in memory what I preached to you, unless you have believed in vain. 1 CORINTHIANS 15.1-2

Paul and the other New Testament writers taught Torah, The Law of Moses. ROMANS 7.1, ROMANS 8.7, Etc.

DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4, MATTHEW 8.22, 2 TIMOTHY 4.1-4, JOHN 17.1-3, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

MATTHEW 8.22 Following Messiah Yeshua, Who never sinned because He lived His Life according to Torah, The Law of Moses, is living your life according to GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses. For sin is transgressing The Law of Moses.

And let the dead, who are spiritually dead because they reject The Law of Moses, bury the dead.

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 1.9

DEUTERONOMY 17.18-19 Messiah Yeshua, The future King of Israel will rule His Kingdom in Israel and throughout the world according to Torah, The Law of Moses. The same Law that Christianity has abolished to their great hurt.

Messiah Yeshua says, If you love Me, Keep My Commandments.

GOD’S Commandments are more than The Ten Commandments. GOD’S Commandments are His Laws written in The Law of Moses.

The Hebrew Word for Commandments is MEETZ’VOTE meaning, Collectively GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses

GOD also says, Know therefore that The LORD your GOD is a Faithful GOD Who keeps Covenant, His Word and His Law, and Mercy, with them that love Him, and Keep His Commandments to a thousand generations. That is forever.

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

JOHN 14.15, DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10

Yeshua The Messiah, Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, The future King of Israel says, If you love Me, Keep My Commandments, all GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.

WHILE IN DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10, GOD ADDRESSES THOSE WHO HATE GOD.

HATING GOD IS SHOWING NO RESPECT FOR GOD BY TEACHING THAT GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES ARE ABOLISHED

DEUTERONOMY 17.19-20 Since The Kings of Israel, and the future King of Israel, The Messiah Yeshua are Commanded by GOD to obey and live by The Commandments of GOD, GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses, I say then that the false Bible teachers who teach out of a Bible of Truth but turn it into a book of lies by teaching that The Law of Moses is abolished, and teach a trinity of three different gods should reconsider their very, very low position with GOD.

And they should start teaching The Truth to their church that The Law of Moses must, without question be obeyed. And they must teach that there is only One GOD. And Messiah Yeshua, The Jesus of The Bible is that One GOD, The GOD of Israel before it is too late for them and their congregants.

THE GOSPEL IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES

 Shalom,

Our Teaching this morning from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 17.8-13.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE GOSPEL IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

And with that said, Let’s read Deuteronomy 17.8-13.

The Bible says, If a legal matter of judgment arises that is too difficult for you to judge concerning bloodshed, or a final sentence, or personal injury, matters of controversy within your cities, The LORD says, You shall then go to The Place that The LORD Your GOD shall choose.

The Place that The LORD GOD chose was first The Tabernacle, and following The Tabernacle were the first and second Temples in Jerusalem.

And then, The LORD says, you shall go to The Priests, The Levites, and to the Judge that shall be in those days, and inquire.  And they will show you the sentence of the judgment.

And you shall do according to their word.  And you shall do according to all that they tell you.

And their sentence will be according to Torah, The Law of Moses which they will teach you, and according to the judgment which they will tell you.  That you shall do.  And you shall not turn aside from the sentence in which they tell you, to the right hand, nor to the left.

And the man who acts with pride so as to sin by disobeying Torah, The Law of Moses, not obeying The Priest who is standing there to serve before The LORD Your GOD, or to the Judge, that man shall die, and you shall put away the evil from Israel.

And all The People shall hear and obey and fear GOD, and will no longer knowingly sin against GOD by disobeying His Laws that are Written in The Law of Moses.

THE WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS ALWAYS IN AGREEMENT WITH TORAH, GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH THE BELIEVER IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA SHOULD LIVE HIS OR HER LIFE, IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES.  MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

If you were to do a careful Bible Study of all The GODLY men and women in The Bible, you would see that they lived their lives according to Torah, The Law of Moses.

From Enoch to Noah to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Miriam, the sister of Moses, David, The Prophets, Yeshua /Jesus The Messiah, Messiah’s Disciples and Apostles, Miriam, Messiah’s mother in the flesh, Paul, James, Jude, etc., they all lived according to Torah, GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions that are Written in The Law of Moses.

GENESIS 5.24, GENESIS 6.9, GENESIS 26.1-5, 1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 PETER 1.1-2, LUKE 2.21-33, 1 JOHN 5.3, EPHESIANS 5.1, 6, JAMES 1.22, 25, JUDE 15,18,21

1 PETER 2.22 SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.  MESSIAH DID NOT SIN BECAUSE HE LIVED BY THE LAW OF MOSES.

JUDE 15 SINNERS BREAK THE LAW OF MOSES.  VERSE 21 KEEPING YOURSELF IN THE LOVE OF GOD IS OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4,  1 JOHN 5.3

There is not one GODLY Person in The Bible who rejected or abolished The Law of Moses.  No not one.  Yes, from time to time they messed up, and slipped, but they confessed their sin of breaking The Law of Moses, and returned to GOD by obeying His His Torah, The Law of Moses.  And when we sin, and confess our sin to GOD, The LORD will always forgive us. 

1 JOHN 1.9, EZEKIEL 18.21-22

But the ungodly people in The Bible all rejected Torah, GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.

THAT LEADS US TO THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE, THE GOSPEL IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

You probably know that the word Gospel means GOOD NEWS.

The Bible teaches in The New Testament that The Gospel is The Good News of The Kingdom, The Good News, or The Gospel of Messiah Yeshua, The Gospel of The Grace of GOD, The Gospel of GOD, The Gospel of Peace, The Gospel is Hidden, The Gospel is to the uncircumcision and the circumcision, The Mystery of The Gospel, The Truth of The Gospel, The Gospel was preached before to Abraham, The beginning of The Gospel, The Hope of The Gospel, and The Everlasting Gospel.

THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM.  MATTHEW 4.23

The Gospel of The Kingdom can be about GOD Himself, or about Heaven and earth, and the entire universe that has no beginning or end.

No one can know or explain GOD to perfection because GOD says that the secret things belong to The LORD our GOD, but those things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we should do all The Words of The Torah, The Law of Moses.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.28, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.29

The Gospel, or The Good News of The Kingdom contains all the wonderful blessings we receive from GOD when we obey His Laws, Commandments, Teachings, and Instructions that are Written in The Law of Moses from Genesis through Deuteronomy. 

DEUTERONOMY 28.1-68

THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES BY MOSES AND GOD THAT TEACHES ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  EXODUS 32.31-33

EXODUS 32.33  Here The LORD GOD teaches Biblical Repentance, turning from your sins of breaking The Law of Moses by obedience to The Law of Moses.  That is Eternal Life in Heaven and not death.  EZEKIEL 18.21, REVELATION 21.27, REVELATION 20.15, 1 JOHN 3.4

And GOD’S Law of Moses concerning The teaching of The Kingdom teaches the way to make atonement, by the shed blood of a sacrifice.  Today, atonement is made by The Shed Blood of The Messiah Yeshua.  LEVITICUS 17.11, ISAIAH 53.10, JOHN 19.34

THEREFORE THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM IS TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE GOSPEL OF MESSIAH YESHUA.  MARK 1.1

THE GOSPEL OF MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THIS IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW.

ONE OF THE HEBREW NAMES FOR GOD ALMIGHTY IS ELOHIM.  ELOHIM IN HEBREW MEANS GODS.  YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SO MUCH MORE.

ALL ARE THE SAME GOD.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER.

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

THE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES FIRST INTRODUCES YESHUA THE MESSIAH IN GENESIS 1.1 WHEN GOD (ELOHIM) SAID, IN THE BEGINNING ELOHIM CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH. 

MESSIAH YESHUA IS ELOHIM.

AND ELOHIM IS WRITTEN SOME 799 TIMES IN TORAH.

JACOB SAID IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, I HAVE WAITED FOR YOUR SALVATION O LORD.  SALVATION IS THE NAME OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  GENESIS 49.18

AND GOD SAID IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES CONCERNING THE FUTURE MESSIAH, THE LORD YOUR GOD (ELOHIM) WILL RAISE THEM UP A PROPHET FROM AMONG THEIR BRETHREN LIKE YOU MOSES.  AND I WILL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH AND HE SHALL SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE ALL THAT I SHALL COMMAND HIM.

AND WHOSOEVER WILL NOT OBEY MY WORD WHICH HE SHALL SPEAK IN MY NAME, I WILL CALL HIM TO ACCOUNT. 

DEUTERONOMY 18.18-19

THEREFORE THE GOSPEL OF MESSIAH YESHUA IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD.  ACTS 20.24

THE GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES WHEN GOD CHOSE NOAH AND HIS FAMILY FOR DELIVERANCE FROM THE FLOOD.  EIGHT PEOPLE IN TOTAL FROM THE MILLIONS OR BILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON THE EARTH IN THEIR DAY WHOM GOD DELIVERED FROM DEATH.  THAT IS THE GRACE OF GOD.

AND TODAY, ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DESCEND FROM NOAH’S THREE SONS.  GENESIS 6.8-10, GENESIS 10.1-2 FF

THAT IS GOD’S GRACE THAT SAVED THEM.  NOAH DID NOTHING TO EARN THE LORD’S GRACE.

NOR DID ABRAHAM AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE DO ANYTHING TO EARN GOD’S FAVOR WHEN GOD CHOSE ABRAHAM AND HIS JEWISH DESCENDANTS TO BE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE WHOSE SPECIAL MINISTRY IS TO BE GOD’S SERVANT AND WITNESSES TO WRITE THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION FOR THE WORLD TO KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

GENESIS 12.1-3, DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15, ISAIAH 43.10-11

DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15  THESE WORDS ALSO APPLY TO NON JEWISH PEOPLE WHO OBEY AND KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE.

THE GOSPEL OF GOD.  ROMANS 1.1

KNOWING GOD, AND FOLLOWING GOD IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU DO NOT LIVE BY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES.  NOT HAVING THE LAW OF MOSES IN YOUR HEART IS NOT KNOWING GOD, NOT DOING THE WILL OF GOD, AND NOT KNOWING WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU TO LEAD A GODLY LIFE PLEASING TO GOD. 

DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8, MATTHEW 7.21-23, LUKE 8.21

DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10  THE WILL OF GOD IS TO LOVE GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, ALL HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

YOU MUST ALSO KNOW AND BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29

SHEMA YISRAEL ADONAY ELOHEYNU ADONAY EHKHAD. 

MEANING, HEAR AND OBEY O ISRAEL EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. 

DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29, ISAIAH 43.10

THAT IS THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH THE BIBLE STANDS.  AND THAT IS THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH THE CHILD OF GOD STANDS. OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.  ROMANS 10.15

GOD’S PEACE IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU.

THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU, AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU.

THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU, AND GIVE YOU PEACE. 

NUMBERS 6.22-27

THOSE WORDS ARE FOR ALL WHO LIVE BY THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE GOSPEL IS HID.  2 CORINTHIANS 4.3

HIDING THE GOSPEL, THE GOOD NEWS OF GOD, IS ACCOMPLISHED BY GOD HIDING HIMSELF.  THAT IS TAUGHT BY MOSES IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

YET THE LORD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A HEART TO UNDERSTAND, AND EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR TO THIS DAY. 

HEBREW BIBLE  DEUTERONOMY 29.3, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.4   

THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL.  GALATIANS 2.14

GOD TEACHES THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL EARLY  IN THE CREATION IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

EVERYONE KNOWS THE STORY.  IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  GOD COMMANDED ADAM NOT TO EAT OF THE FRUIT OF A CERTAIN TREE, FOR GOD SAID, IN THE DAY THAT YOU EAT OF IT YOU WILL SURELY DIE.

BUT LATER, SATAN SAID TO EVE, YOU WILL NOT SURELY DIE IF YOU DISOBEY GOD BECAUSE YOU WILL BE LIKE GOD KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL. 

GENESIS 2.15-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, 22, GENESIS 5.3

GOD TEACHES IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE CREATION THAT OBEYING GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE. GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE TO LIVE FOREVER UNTIL THEY SINNED AGAINST GOD BY DISOBEYING HIM.  DISOBEYING GOD IS DEATH.  ADAM AND EVE LISTENED TO satan RATHER THAN OBEYING GOD.  AND THEY DIED.

THAT IS THE SAME STORY TODAY.  PEOPLE DON’T LISTEN TO GOD.  MANY ARE TAUGHT TO DISOBEY THE WORD OF GOD BY BIBLE TEACHERS TELLING THEM THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.  THAT IS DEATH.  JOHN 1.1

DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES IS DISOBEYING GOD.  THAT IS THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL TAUGHT IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

BUT OBEYING GOD BY OBEYING HIS TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES WITH MESSIAH YESHUA IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.    

THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED BEFORE TO ABRAHAM.  GALATIANS 3.8

THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED BEFORE TO ABRAHAM, SAYING, IN YOU SHALL ALL THE NATIONS BE BLESSED.  GENESIS 12.3  

THE NATIONS ARE BLESSED IN ABRAHAM AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BROUGHT THE BIBLE TO THE NATIONS THAT CONTAINS THE WORD OF GOD, THE TRUTH OF GOD, AND THE LAWS, COMMANDMENTS AND TEACHINGS OF GOD FOR ALL PEOPLES TO HAVE A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, WHEN OBEYED.

AND THE NATIONS ARE BLESSED IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BROUGHT THE MESSIAH YESHUA /JESUS TO THE NATIONS FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS, AND SALVATION, CONDITIONAL UPON THEIR OBEDIENCE TO GOD AND HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. 

SO YES, THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED BEFORE TO ABRAHAM.

THE GOSPEL IS A MYSTERY.  EPHESIANS 6.19

THE GOSPEL IS A MYSTERY FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS;

GOD HAS SHUT THE EYES, AND HID HIMSELF FROM MANY PEOPLE TO THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL. 

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.3, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.4, ISAIAH 45.15, LUKE 24.16

THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS CHOOSE TO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, MAKING THE GOSPEL A MYSTERY TO THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS.

AND MAINSTREAM JUDAISM HAS THEIR EYES SHUT, NOT SEEING THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE JEWISH MESSIAH.  AND THEIR ATONEMENT FOR ALL THEIR SINS.

THEREFORE THE GOSPEL IS A MYSTERY.

THE GOSPEL IS HOPE.  COLOSSIANS 1.23

MY ANSWER TO THE GOSPEL IS HOPE IS WHEN A PERSON LIVES HIS OR HER LIFE ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH GOD TEACHES IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAS MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT, THEIR HOPE IS IN THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL FOR A GOOD, SUCCESSFUL, AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  IN FACT, THAT IS PAUL’S TEACHING THROUGHOUT HIS NEW TESTAMENT TEACHINGS.  EXODUS 15.26

THE GOSPEL IS EVERLASTING.  REVELATION 14.6-7

I REFER BACK TO THE EVENT OF GOD, satan, AND ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN IN GENESIS CHAPTERS 2 AND 3.

THOSE TWO CHAPTERS GIVE THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL.  OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  THEREFORE THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL IS TAUGHT IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND FINALLY, THE GOSPEL IS TO THE UNCIRCUMCISION AND THE CIRCUMCISION.  GALATIANS 2.7

THE GOSPEL THAT IS FIRST TAUGHT IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS FOR BOTH NON JEWS, AND JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES, THAT WHEN OBEYED IS FOR YOU THE GOOD NEWS OF GOD.

SO IN CONCLUSION, NOT ONLY IS THE GOSPEL WRITTEN IN THE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT WHEN TAUGHT, THE GOSPEL MUST INCLUDE THE LAW OF MOSES TO BE TRUTH.

Shalom.

WHY DID HANUKKAH HAPPEN?

Shalom and Happy Hanukkah.

Hanukkah is an eight day Jewish Holiday, and today is the sixth day of Hanukkah.

In Hebrew, Hanukkah means Dedication, for the Rededication of The Second Temple in Jerusalem in 165 B.C.E./B.C. to The MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL.

That was the victorious conclusion of the Triumph, and Heroism of The Jewish People who were led by the Maccabees that fought a great war against a mighty Syrian army.

WHY DID HANUKKAH HAPPEN?  

In the days and years leading up to Hanukkah, so many Jewish People in Israel joined in with the Gentiles by disobeying Torah, The Law of Moses.  The Laws and Teachings of GOD that GOD put in the hands of Moses for The Jewish People and all the world to live by and obey.

And because of their disobedience to GOD by disobeying His Laws Written in The Law of Moses, GOD brought upon Israel and The Jewish People great punishment, and death, and grief from the wrath of the king of Syria, Antiochus Epiphanes that The LORD GOD brought into Israel to rule The Jewish People.

And the king of Syria proceeded to forbid all Jewish People to live by GOD’S Laws written in The Law of Moses.  And in his insane anger, he decided that he would kill all The Jews and make a complete destruction of The Jewish People.

Let’s look at Daniel’s Prophesy that leads up to Hanukkah, and why GOD brought upon The Jewish People in Israel such great punishment.  DANIEL 8.11-12

DANIEL 8.11-12  Because of sin, breaking Torah, The Law of Moses, (1 Jn. 3.4) GOD gave The Jewish People over to The Syrian king Antiochus Epiphanes who stopped the daily sacrifice, and the Truth, The Torah was thrown down.  And the king prospered.

The plan of the Syrian king failed because of The Mighty GOD OF ISRAEL, and a great number of Jewish warriors led by the Maccabees that routed the Syrian army and sent them back to Syria.

The Maccabees, along with a large number of Jewish fighters used guerilla warfare, and open battle to destroy the war effort of the Syrian armies.

As a point of information, Hanukkah was 2,183 years ago.

2,183 years ago there was no such thing as an Arab, or a Palestinian, or a Palestinian Arab.  Only Gentiles and their nations who sought to occupy and rule The Jewish People and their Homeland Israel that GOD gave to The Jewish People for an Everlasting Possession.  GENESIS 17.8

Jerusalem has been The Capital of Israel since the days of King David, 835 years before Hanukkah.  And today, 2,183 years after Hanukkah, Jerusalem remains the Capital of Israel and The Jewish People, and will always be The Capital of Israel and The Jewish People.

The Maccabees were Levitical Priests from the Hasmonean Family Dynasty of Priests.  They came to power in 166 B.C.E./B.C. when Mattathias, the elderly Priest of the Dynasty launched The Jewish Revolt against the Syrian armies and their king, Antiochus Epiphanes whose armies ruled Israel at the time with a brutal hand, and anti-Jewish atrocities killing thousands of innocent Jews; men, women and children.

One year later, in 165 B.C.E./B.C., the result was victory, for The Jewish People, for Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses, and for The GOD of Israel.  And The Jewish People declared Hanukkah, The Rededication of The second Temple.

The word Maccabees comes from the Hebrew MAH’KAH’VEEM, meaning Hammers.

So why is Hanukkah so important, not only to The Jewish People, but also to the Gentiles throughout the world?

Because, had the Syrians succeeded in destroying The Jewish People from off the face of the earth, The Sacred Writings of Tnakh, The Old Testament Scriptures that include The Teachings of GOD, and The Teachings about GOD, and The Laws of GOD in The Law of Moses for all the world to live a Righteous life in The Sight of GOD, all would have been destroyed by the enemies of GOD along with The Jewish People who wrote The Bible from The Lips of GOD.

Israel is GOD’S son, even His Firstborn.  Therefore GOD is The Father of The Jewish People, The GOD of The Jewish People, and GOD is Jewish.  EXODUS 4.22

HATRED OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS HATRED OF GOD.

Without The Jewish People, there would be no Jewish Messiah Yeshua Whom the world calls Jesus.  There would be no atonement for sins.  No Salvation, no Eternal Life, and no New Testament.  There would be no Light of Truth in the world.

But fortunately for the world, GOD ordained His Jewish People to be an Eternal People, a People who will remain forever as long as the new Heavens and the new earth shall remain before GOD.

And GOD ordained His Jewish People to be His Servant and His Witnesses to the world through The Bible.  ISAIAH 66.22, ISAIAH 43.10-11

Add to that, GOD says, All the families of the earth are blessed in The Jewish People.  GENESIS 12.3  

When Gentiles Bless The Jewish People, and Israel, GOD Blesses the Gentiles.

When Gentiles live by The Law of Moses and every Word that GOD speaks in The Bible from Genesis through Revelation that Jewish People recorded for The Bible, GOD will bless the Gentiles.

And all the families of the earth are blessed in The Jewish People through The Jewish  Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, for your Atonement, for the forgiveness of your sins, all your sins, when you have faith in The Messiah Yeshua and live by Torah, GOD’S Laws Written in The Law of Moses.

1 JOHN 5.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

Yes, all the families of the earth are blessed in The Jewish People.  A mystery rarely told.

Hanukkah is not a Commanded Festival of GOD in the grouping of The LORD’S Festivals written in Leviticus 23.  Hanukkah is a Jewish Holiday and nothing like Christmas, except both celebrate THE GOD OF ISRAEL.

Hanukkah traces its roots to Alexander the Great who was the king of the ancient Kingdom of Macedonia.  The Kingdom of Macedonia was in the region of the Balkans, and in Albania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Romania, and northern Greece.  And eventually Alexander the Great became the king of the world when he defeated the Great Persian Empire that included Iran, Syria, Egypt, and Israel.

When Alexander died in his twenties, his Empire was divided into four Kingdoms.  And Syria and Egypt, two of the Kingdoms, were continually at war with each other for one hundred years.  And Israel served as a land bridge between those two Kingdoms.  And Israel was torn apart by both invading armies.

When the war ended, Syria took possession of Israel.  And for a time there was peace in Israel until 175 B.C.E./B.C., ten years before Hanukkah, when Antiochus Epiphanes became the king of Syria.  He was insane, and The Jewish People in Israel suffered because of him.

From the very beginning of Antiochus’ reign, he hated The Jews because The Jewish People served The LORD Their GOD, The GOD of ISRAEL, and not the Greek gods of the Syrians.

The Jewish People refused to accept Greek idol worship.  And many Jews gave their life for Their Faith in The LORD Their GOD.

And the king of Syria, Antiochus Epiphanes, forbid The Jewish People to observe Torah, The Law of Moses, the very Teachings of GOD.  And then he sought to completely destroy The Jewish People.

WHEN WILL THE NATIONS THAT HATE ISRAEL EVER LEARN?

Antiochus Epiphanes placed Greek altars and Greek statutes everywhere in Israel.  He dedicated The Temple, The House of GOD, to the false Greek gods, olympia an zeus.  Pigs were offered on The Temple Altar.  Pig blood was sprinkled inside The Holy of Holies.  Their flesh cooked, and their broth poured upon the Temple Scrolls.  And The Sabbath was forbidden to be observed.  The penalty for observing The Saturday Sabbath was death.

And Antiochus Epiphanes tortured and killed thousands of Jewish People.  He desecrated The Temple with abominations.  He even entered The Holy of Holies which even for a lunatic was a lunatic thing to do.  And he ended the daily sacrifice to THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL at The Temple.

There were pigs in The Temple.  And the Syrians stole The Temple Altar, The Menorah, and the precious Temple objects, and all the gold that was on The Temple.

Jewish women were torn from their families and sold on the auction block for slaves.  Or killed if they were found observing Torah, The Law of Moses.

But from the little village of Modi’in, a man named Mattathias, an elderly Priest from The Hasmonean Family of Priests saw a Syrian officer approach The Temple Altar to offer a pig for a sacrifice.  But Mattathias walked up to the Syrian and plunged his dagger into the Syrian’s belly.  That was the beginning of The Jewish revolt.

And Mattathias called his five sons, Judah Maccabee, Jonathan, Yokhanaan, Eleazar, and Shimone to follow him against the Syrians.  Whosoever is with GOD and His Everlasting Covenant, Mattathias said, Follow me.  And the Maccabees became hunted fugitives.  Most of The Jews were equipped with pitchforks and swords, and GOD.  PSALM 105.8-10

With GOD, that’s an unfair fight.  The Syrians were dead men before the battle began.  But many Jews gave their lives in the fight.

The final battle came at Emmaus, the same small town which stood on the road some seven miles from Jerusalem where Yeshua The Messiah drew close to two men who were His Disciples.  And they were talking about Messiah’s death, burial, and resurrection.  But GOD The Messiah hid Himself from them for a time that they did not know Who He was.  LUKE 24.13-35, ISAIAH 45. 15

But Judah Maccabee knew that the town of Emmaus was packed with Syrian fighters.  And the Syrians blocked the road to Jerusalem.  But Judah Maccabee took his men, and the two armies, The Jews and the Syrians clashed at the first rays of the morning sun.  But it was quick, and soon over.  The Syrians were routed, and surrendered.  And the Syrian Commander came, and bowed down to The Jewish Forces to mark the victory of Judah Maccabee and The Jewish People, and The Mighty Power of The GOD of Israel.

And The Jewish People returned to Jerusalem, but what they saw was sickening.  The Torah Scrolls in The Temple were torn to pieces and scattered throughout.  Dirt and filth littered The Temple.  Statues of Greek gods and goddesses were seen everywhere in The Temple.  And so many of The Holy Vessels were stolen.  So The People braced themselves and scrubbed, and cleansed The Temple.  And made a new Altar and new Vessels for The Altar.  And they made other Holy things for The Temple that were stolen or desecrated.

And on the 25th Day of The Hebrew Month Kislev, which was this past Monday, in the year 165 B.C.E./B.C., 2183 years ago, The Temple in Jerusalem was Rededicated to THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.  And Hanukkah was declared.

With the little flask of Oil, the only Holy Oil that was found in the destruction, The People lit the great Temple Menorah.  And exceeding all expectations, the oil miraculously burned for eight days.

And since that time, Jewish People around the world celebrate Hanukkah, The Festival of Light for eight days each year in commemoration of Their Great Victory over the Syrians.

So what happened to Antiochus Epiphanes, the king of Syria who was responsible for thousands of Jewish deaths and the grief of so many Jewish People?  GOD killed him by disease in his bed as Prophesied in The Words of The Prophet Daniel in the Prophetic Words of Hanukkah written in DANIEL 8.23-25

SO AGAIN, WHY DID HANUKKAH COME ABOUT?

BECAUSE IT IS CRITICAL TO KNOW THE REASON WHY GOD BRINGS  TRAGEDY, AND DEATH, AND GRIEF UPON HIS JEWISH PEOPLE, AND UPON ALL THE WORLD.

WHY DID HANUKKAH COME ABOUT?  BECAUSE SO MANY JEWISH PEOPLE LIVING IN ISRAEL IN THE YEARS LEADING UP TO HANUKKAH DISOBEYED GOD’S TORAH, GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  IT WAS PROPHESIED BY DANIEL IN  DANIEL 8.11-13, 1 JOHN 3.4 

GENTILES AND CHRISTIANS, YOU TOO ARE UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES WHILE YOU LIVE.  JESUS SAYS SO IN MATTHEW 7.21-23, AND PAUL ALSO TEACHES THAT YOU ARE UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES WHILE YOU LIVE, IN ROMANS 7.1.

WHEN YOU LIVE BY THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THOSE ARE GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND BELIEVE IN ONE GOD, THAT GOD BEING MESSIAH YESHUA, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, YOU ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH, BUT RATHER YOU ARE UNDER GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES THAT GIVES YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

HERE IS THE GOSPEL, THE GOSPEL OF GOD.

OBEY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

KNOW AND BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.

BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT. 

THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF GOD FOR A GOOD AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

Happy Hanukkah.

FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN. THEREFORE JOIN THE FEW WHO ARE CHOSEN, FOR THE CHOSEN INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD.

Shalom.

We’re continuing our studies in Torah, The Law of Moses, from Deuteronomy 17.6-7.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.  THEREFORE JOIN THE FEW WHO ARE CHOSEN FOR THE CHOSEN INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 17.6-7.

DEUTERONOMY 17.6-7  This is straight forward language written in The Bible that two or more witnesses are required to put anyone to death for their crime.

THIS CRIME THAT IS SPOKEN OF IS THE EVIL OF SERVING OTHER gods OTHER THAN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, AND WORSHIPING THEM, OR WORSHIPING THE SUN, OR THE MOON, OR ANY THING IN THE SKY, OR IN IN HEAVEN.

THE CRIME IS DEATH, GOD SAYS, AT THE MOUTH OF TWO WITNESSES OR THREE.  

DEUTERONOMY 17.2-7

GOD Commanded the witnesses to be first to stone the idol worshiper to death.  And afterward the hands of all the people.  So, you shall put the evil away from among you, GOD said.

Of course, today, if anyone kills an idol worshiper, one who serves and worships other gods other than THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, the killer of the idol worshiper would be convicted of murder.

However today, if those who worship other gods do not Repent, and Biblical Repentance is turning to GOD from all your sins of transgressing The Law of Moses, and worshiping other gods is sin, and begin to keep all GOD’S Laws that are Written in The Law of Moses, GOD will deal with that person Himself.  And GOD will carry out the penalty Himself.  1 JOHN 3.4, EZEKIEL 18.21-24 

THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods IS SIN.  THE TRINITY IS PAGAN. 

THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods TEACHES THAT THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE SPIRIT ARE THREE DIFFERENT gods.

The doctrine of Christian orthodoxy, that is the approved Christian belief, teaches that Jesus Christ is the son of GOD, and very GOD “of” very GOD.  Jesus, the Church teaches, is also of the “same substance”  with The Father and The Holy Spirit, and is “equal” in power and glory to The Father and Holy Spirit.

THAT IS 1,000% WRONG.

THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS NOT “OF” VERY GOD.  JESUS IS GOD.  GOD ALMIGHTY.

JESUS, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, IS THE ONE AND ONLY GOD OF CREATION.

AND JESUS, WHO IS MESSIAH YESHUA, IS NOT OF THE “SAME SUBSTANCE” WITH THE FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND “EQUAL”  IN POWER AND GLORY WITH THE FATHER AND HOLY SPIRIT.

THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS THE FATHER, THE JEWISH MESSIAH, AND HE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.

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

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE THE SAME GOD.

THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF ELOHIM WHEN SPEAKING OF GOD ALMIGHTY.  ELOHIM IS ONE OF THE HEBREW NAMES FOR GOD.  ELOHIM IN HEBREW MEANS GODS.

THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA / JESUS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE ALL THE SAME GOD.  THEREFORE GOD OFTEN REFERS TO HIMSELF IN SCRIPTURE AS ELOHIM.

AND MESSIAH YESHUA / JESUS IS THAT ONE GOD.

PSALM 110.1, MARK 16.19, JOHN 17.1-3, JOHN 12.44-45

BELIEVING AND TEACHING THAT JESUS IS NOT THE FATHER BUT A DIFFERENT god, EQUAL WITH THE FATHER IS EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND WORTHY OF DEATH, GOD SAYS.  UNLESS THE IDOL WORSHIPER REPENTS ACCORDING TO BIBLICAL REPENTANCE WRITTEN IN EZEKIEL 18.21

HOWEVER GOD SAYS THAT HE WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46, EXODUS 20.1-3, DEUTERONOMY 5.6-7, DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29, ISAIAH 44.6,8, ISAIAH 45, 5-7, 14-18, ETC.

THE CHURCH IS IN BIG TIME TROUBLE FOR TEACHING THE PAGAN AND ANTI GOD DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY.

AND THE CHURCH IS IN BIG TIME TROUBLE FOR TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED  BECAUSE GOD NEVER ABOLISHED HIS LAW OF MOSES. ISAIAH 40.8,  JAMES 3.1

JAMES 3.1  The masters that James writes about are those who teach The Bible such as Bible Teachers and Doctors of Theology.

If those Bible teachers teach the pagan trinity doctrine of three different gods, or teach that The Law of Moses is abolished, teaching their Congregations not to obey GOD, those Bible teachers, James writes, have the greater condemnation.

The followers of those false Bible teachers have condemnation, but the false Bible teachers receive the greater condemnation for teaching their lies.

UNLESS THEY REPENT.  FOR GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD.

EZEKIEL 18.21-22, ISAIAH 24.4-6

ISAIAH 24.5-6 GOD TELLS THE WORLD IN PLAIN LANGUAGE WHY AND HOW HE WILL DESTROY THE EARTH.

WHY WILL GOD DESTROY THE EARTH AND FEW PEOPLE WILL BE LEFT? 

BECAUSE GOD SAYS, THE EARTH IS DEFILED UNDER THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE LAWS OF GOD.  THAT IS THE LAW OF MOSES AND THE WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

GOD’S LAWS, AND TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS ARE WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IN THE LAW OF MOSES, IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE THAT THE CHURCH AND CERTAIN MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE FOOLISHLY REJECTED BY TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

THEREFORE THE CHURCH AND THOSE MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH THEIR PEOPLE TO SIN AGAINST GOD BECAUSE THEY DECEITFULLY TEACH THAT GOD’S LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR EVEN OPTIONAL AS SOME MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH.

THEY TEACH THEIR PEOPLE THAT IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO OBEY GOD’S LAWS.  THEY TEACH THEIR PEOPLE NOT TO OBEY GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, OR HIS TEACHINGS, OR HIS INSTRUCTIONS.

FOR THE BIBLE SAYS, SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

THE LAW OF MOSES CONTAINS ALL GOD’S LAWS FOR ISRAEL AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY AND OBEY.

AND THE WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.  NOT ONE LAW, NOR ONE WORD EVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

HOW CAN THE CHURCH AND THOSE MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED?  THAT IS ANTI GOD, ANTI CHRIST.

GOD’S LAWS ARE NOT ONLY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  GOD’S LAWS ARE FOR EVERYONE TO LIVE BY, AND OBEY, TO LEAD A GODLY LIFE THAT IS RIGHT AND PLEASING IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

ADD TO THAT, THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE BROKEN THE EVERLASTING COVENANT.

THE EVERLASTING COVENANT IS GOD’S WORD THAT IS EVERLASTING, AND GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE THAT ARE EVERLASTING.

THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE BROKEN GOD’S EVERLASTING COVENANT BY NOT TEACHING AND NOT FOLLOWING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT TORAH AND MESSIAH YESHUA SAY, THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

BUT INSTEAD OF TEACHING AND OBEYING GOD’S LAWS, THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH AND FOLLOW CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE THAT DESTROYS ALL GOD’S LAWS.

AND MOST CHURCHES AND MANY MESSIANIC CONGREGATIONS TEACH A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

I READ IN A POPULAR CHRISTIAN BIBLE DICTIONARY THAT ALL THEIR DOCTRINAL ARTICLES MUST ADHERE TO CHRISTIAN ORTHODOXY.  NOT ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, BUT ACCORDING TO CHRISTIAN DOCTRINAL BELIEF.  AND THAT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE, FOR CHRISTIANS, AND THOSE MESSIANIC JEWS WHO FOLLOW CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE.

AND GOD WILL ALSO DESTROY THE EARTH AND FEW PEOPLE WILL BE LEFT BECAUSE THE PEOPLE LIVING ON EARTH HAVE CHANGED GOD’S ORDINANCES.  ISAIAH 24.5

THE CHURCH HAS CHANGED EVERY ORDINANCE OF GOD.  THAT IS EVERY LAW, COMMANDMENT, AND SET TIME OF GOD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

THE CHURCH HAS CHANGED GOD’S SATURDAY SABBATH TO SUNDAY, OR ANY OTHER DAY.

THE CHURCH HAS CHANGED AND ABOLISHED ALL THE FESTIVALS OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23.

THE CHURCH HAS CHANGED GOD’S FOOD LAWS WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 11 AND DEUTERONOMY 14 TO NO FOOD LAWS.

AND MUCH OF THE CHURCH AND MANY OF THE MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE CHANGED ONE GOD TO A PAGAN TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

THEREFORE THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS DO NOT TEACH GOD’S MESSAGE OF SALVATION.

BUT RATHER THEY TEACH NO SALVATION BECAUSE THEY TEACH ANOTHER JESUS. 

THEY TEACH A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.  AND THEY TEACH WITH ENTHUSIASM THAT ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES ARE ABOLISHED.

2 CORINTHIANS 11.1-4, GENESIS 3.4

PAUL LIVED BY TORAH, AND TAUGHT OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT ALSO TEACHES ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

ACTS 15.35-36, ACTS 24.14, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 3.31, ROMANS 6.4-6 (SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES), ROMANS 7.1, 22, ROMANS 8.4-7

GOD HAS NOT, NOR WILL HE EVER ABOLISH HIS LAW OF MOSES, OR HIS WORD WHICH HE HAS COMMANDED TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.  THAT IS FOREVER.

SO, HOW WILL GOD DESTROY THE EARTH?  GOD WILL DESTROY THE EARTH WITH FIRE.  AND GOD SAYS, FEW PEOPLE WILL BE LEFT.

SOMETHING WE MIGHT CONSIDER BECAUSE OF THE FIRES THAT RAVAGE CALIFORNIA ALMOST EVERY YEAR.

GOD’S SALVATION MESSAGE AND HIS GOSPEL WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE REQUIRE OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES OBEDIENCE TO ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THAT MEANS STARTING YOUR LIFE ON THE PATH OF GODLINESS.  LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND GOD’S SALVATION MESSAGE AND HIS GOSPEL IS SERVING AND WORSHIPING ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  KNOWING THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS THE FATHER, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE ONE GOD. 

AND GOD’S SALVATION MESSAGE AND HIS GOSPEL FOR ATONEMENT IS HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA.

FOR MESSIAH SAYS, FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.  MATTHEW 22.14

THEREFORE JOIN IN WITH THE FEW WHO OBEY GOD, HIS EVERY WORD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, AND BECOME PART OF THE CHOSEN. 

FOR THE CHOSEN INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD.

1 JOHN 3.4, ISAIAH 40.8, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, 1 PETER 1.23-25, PSALM 105.8-10, 1 CHRONICLES 16.15-17, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 5.3

CHRISTIANITY AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE ABOLISHED TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND TEACH A PAGAN DOCTRINE OF THREE DIFFERENT gods. THIS IS A SALVATION MESSAGE.

Shalom,

Our teaching this morning from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 17.1-5.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, CHRISTIANITY AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE ABOLISHED TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND TEACH A PAGAN DOCTRINE OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

THIS IS A SALVATION MESSAGE.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 17.1-5.

Christianity and many Messianic Jewish Congregations have decided to abolish The entire Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses that begins in Genesis 1.1 in which GOD says, In the beginning GOD created the Heavens and the earth, and continues in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, all containing GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions.  And concludes in Deuteronomy Chapter 34 when Moses died.

BY ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES, CHRISTIANITY AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS HAVE DONE AWAY WITH ALL GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS.  LEAVING THEM LAWLESS AND DISOBEDIENT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

GOD NEVER ABOLISHED HIS TORAH.  IT STANDS FOREVER. 

ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

SO THEREFORE WE CONTINUE TO TEACH THE GOD OF TRUTH AND HIS WORD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

Earlier we read a serious account in Luke 16.19-31 in which Messiah tells a story about a rich man and poor man.  The poor man, Lazarus, died and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom in Heaven, and the rich man died and went to hell.

And the rich man in hell being in torment lifts up his eyes and sees Abraham far off in Heaven.  And the rich man pleads with Abraham, Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus to my brothers to testify to them lest they also come into this place of torment.

And Abraham said to the rich man in hell, They have Moses (which is The Law of Moses) and The Prophets.  Let them Hear them, which means, Let them Hear and Obey The Law of Moses and The Prophets.

But the rich man said, No, father Abraham.  But if one went to them from the dead they will repent.

And Abraham said to the rich man in hell, If they do not Hear and Obey Moses and The Prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.

THE CRUCIAL POINT OF MESSIAH’S STORY IS THIS.  OBEDIENCE TO MOSES, THAT IS, OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, AND THE PROPHETS RESULTS IN ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD’S LAW OF MOSES AND THE PROPHETS RESULTS IN ETERNAL LIFE IN HELL.

IT IS WRITTEN, IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

SO WE CONTINUE TO TEACH THE LAW OF MOSES ON WHICH THE ENTIRE BIBLE STANDS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

DEUTERONOMY 17.1  Sacrificing an animal to The LORD such as an ox or a sheep that has a blemish or anything evil or bad in it is an abomination to The LORD.

An abomination is anything that is disgusting, abhorrent, or detestable.

Therefore the sacrifice to The LORD, even for Atonement, must always be perfect, without blemish, or anything bad or evil in it.

As you know, GOD Commands His People in Torah, The Law of Moses that the animal sacrifice is forbidden when The Temple is not standing in Jerusalem.  LEVITICUS 17.8-9

There is no Temple in Jerusalem today.

Let’s look at a little history.

Messiah Yeshua was killed and shed His Blood when The Temple was standing and active in Jerusalem.  Messiah often taught there.

But some thirty-seven years after His Death, Burial, Resurrection, and Ascension into Heaven, the Roman armies rode into Jerusalem and killed some one million Jewish People, and destroyed The Temple in which Messiah Prophesied, Not one stone will be left upon another.  The stones of The Temple were thrown down by the Romans. MATTHEW 24.1-2

However, GOD predicted some seven hundred years before The Temple was destroyed that the future Messiah will be despised and rejected of men, and wounded and killed for our transgressions.  He will be bruised for our iniquities.  He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter, and was cut off out the land of the living, even though He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His Mouth.

But yet it pleased The LORD to bruise Him.  Literally, it pleased The LORD to break Him in pieces and kill Him,  and put Him to grief,

BECAUSE GOD MADE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN.  GOD MADE HIS SOUL TO ATONE FOR YOUR SINS.

But GOD prolonged Messiah’s days by resurrecting Him to Life.  And Messiah lives today and forever because MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.   

And The Prophesy continues.  GOD’S Righteous Servant, Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, MESSIAH YESHUA, justifies many.  For He carries our iniquities thereby making Atonement for our soul.

And He poured out His Soul unto Death, and was numbered with the transgressors, and He carried the sins of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.  ISAIAH 53

ISAIAH CHAPTER 53, OF COURSE, IS PROPHESY OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FATHER, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOUR ATONEMENT AS A HUMAN BEING.

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

AS A HUMAN BEING, MESSIAH WAS KILLED ON A ROMAN CROSS TO SHED HIS BLOOD THEREBY MAKING ATONEMENT FOR MANY.

GOD SAYS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  LEVITICUS 17.11

SO MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES AS IT IS WRITTEN IN DEUTERONOMY 17.1

MESSIAH YESHUA’S ATONING SACRIFICE AND SHED BLOOD TO THE LORD OUR GOD TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR MANY IS PERFECT, WITHOUT BLEMISH, WITHOUT ANYTHING EVIL OR BAD IN HIM AS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE ONLY ONE PERFECT THROUGHOUT THE CREATION, WITHOUT BLEMISH OR EVIL, OR BAD IS YESHUA THE MESSIAH WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING TO BE YOUR ATONEMENT.

GOD ALWAYS CONDUCTS HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

EVEN IN DEATH AS A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOUL, GOD CONDUCTS HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO TORAH.

DEUTERONOMY 32.4, PSALM 22.1, MATTHEW 27.46, 1 PETER 2.21-22

DEUTERONOMY 32.4  GOD’S WAYS ARE JUDGMENT, ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF GOD

There hasn’t been a Temple standing in Jerusalem since the Romans destroyed it in 70 C.E./A.D.  Therefore causing the sacrifice to stop.

But it is taught in mainstream Judaism today that Atonement can be made by the payment of compensation for any wrong committed, or through suffering, or through the performance of certain rituals, all accompanied by repentance, and making things right in your life.  But that is not Biblical Doctrine for Atonement.

BECAUSE IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL, GOD SAYS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  LEVITICUS 17.11

Christianity teaches that Atonement is made by the Death and Shed Blood of Jesus Christ, Who is Messiah Yeshua.  And that is correct.

But since Christianity and many Messianic Jewish Congregations that follow Christian doctrine have abolished The Law of Moses, Christians and many Messianic Jews continue to sin after they receive Jesus Christ by rejecting and disobeying The Law of Moses which their Bible teachers have been teaching for hundreds of years since the days of Constantine.

BUT GOD REQUIRES EVERYBODY TO OBEY HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, HERE ON EARTH, IN THE FUTURE ONE THOUSAND YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.

THEREFORE CHRISTIANS AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWS HAVE NO ATONEMENT OR SALVATION BECAUSE THEY FOLLOW THE ABOMINABLE TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

GOD NEVER ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

CHRISTIANITY TEACHES THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES ON THE CROSS.  THAT IS NO WHERE WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  IT IS A LIE.  THAT IS NOT THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE.  THAT IS ANOTHER JESUS WHO THINKS TO ABOLISH THE LAW.

THAT LIE IS FROM SATAN AND HIS MESSENGERS THAT BEGAN IN GENESIS 3.4-5 THAT RESULTS IN ETERNAL LIFE IN HELL. 

UNLESS THE SINNER REPENTS OF THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, AND TURNS TO GOD AND OBEYS ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEN THAT PERSON WILL LIVE, AND NOT DIE.  1 JOHN 3.4, EZEKIEL 18.21

By rejecting The Law of Moses, and disobeying it, Christians, and many Messianic Jews are like the rich man in Luke 16.19-31 who went to hell because the rich man disobeyed The Law of Moses.

HERE ARE SOME SCRIPTURES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT TEACH YOU TO OBEY THE TRUTH, EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

1 JOHN 3.4, LUKE 11.28, LUKE 16.17, ROMANS 7.1, 1 CORINTHIANS 7.19, 2 CORINTHIANS 2.9, GALATIANS 5.7, EPHESIANS 5.1, PHILIPPIANS 2.5, 1 PETER 2.21-22, COLOSSIANS 2.6, 8, 1 THESSALONIANS 1.6, 9, 1 THESSALONIANS 2.13, 2 THESSALONIANS 2.10, 13, 2 THESSALONIANS 3.1

THE TRUTH IS THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

DEUTERONOMY 17.2-5  THINK ON THIS LAW FROM GOD WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES ABOUT SERVING OTHER gods AND WORSHIPING THEM.

IF THERE IS FOUND AMONG YOU WITHIN YOUR GATES, THAT IS, WITHIN YOUR CITIES OR TOWNS, A MAN OR A WOMAN THAT HAS DONE WICKEDNESS IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD YOUR GOD IN TRANSGRESSING HIS COVENANT.

GOD’S COVENANT IS HIS WORD AND HIS LAW OF MOSES.

AND HAS GONE AND SERVED OTHER gods, AND WORSHIPED THEM, OR THE SUN, OR MOON, OR ANY OF THE HOST OF HEAVEN WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED.

AND YOU ARE TOLD, AND YOU HAVE HEARD OF IT, AND INQUIRED DILIGENTLY, AND IT IS TRUE, AND THE THING IS CERTAIN THAT SUCH ABOMINATION IS DONE IN ISRAEL.  THEN SHALL YOU BRING FORTH THAT MAN OR THAT WOMAN WHICH HAS COMMITTED THAT WICKED THING, AND SHALL STONE THEM WITH STONES TILL THEY DIE.

GOD’S WORD IN THE BIBLE IS FOR THE WORLD.  NOT JUST ISRAEL.  ISRAEL IS GOD’S WITNESS TO THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE. 

ISAIAH 43.10-11, 1 CHRONICLES 16.15-17, PSALM 105.8-10

THE TRINITY TEACHES THREE DIFFERENT gods BECAUSE THE TRINITY IS DESCRIBED AS THREE DISTINCT AND DIFFERENT PERSONS.  ONE GOD.

THE THREE DISTINCT AND DIFFERENT PERSONS OF THE TRINITY ARE THE FATHER IS A god, THE SON JESUS CHRIST IS ANOTHER  god, AND THE SPIRIT IS ANOTHER  god.  THREE gods.

THREE DIFFERENT gods CONTRADICT ONE GOD.

WHEN IT IS TAUGHT IN CHRISTIANITY THAT JESUS IS NOT THE FATHER, AND THAT JESUS WHO IS NOT THE FATHER IS WORSHIPED, THAT IS WORSHIPING ANOTHER god.

ADD TO THAT, ALL CHRISTIANITY RECEIVES THE FALSE DOCTRINE THAT THEIR JESUS HAS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS WRITTEN IN IT.  THUS MAKING CHRISTIANITY DISOBEDIENT AND LAWLESS IN THE EYES OF GOD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

THE ONE GOD IS THE FATHER, WHO IS THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

THEREFORE GOD SAYS, THE PENALTY FOR SERVING OTHER gods AND WORSHIPING THEM IS DEATH.

UNLESS THAT PERSON REPENTS AND TURNS TO GOD AND OBEYS ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN HIS LAW OF MOSES THAT ALSO TEACHES THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

JESUS IS THE FATHER.  JESUS IS ALSO THE SPIRIT, AND JESUS IS THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND JESUS IS SO MUCH MORE.

EXODUS 20.1-3, DEUTERONOMY 5.6-7, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, ETC., ETC., ETC.

BELIEVING IN MORE THAN ONE GOD IS PAGAN.

AND THE TRINITY IS PAGAN.

IT IS WRITTEN IN THE SCRIPTURES THAT GOD TALKS TO GOD, OR THE FATHER SPEAKS TO MESSIAH YESHUA, AS IN PSALM 110.1, AND JOHN 17.  YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

GOD SPEAKS TO YESHUA, THE MESSIAH JESUS.  BUT BOTH ARE GOD ALMIGHTY THE ONE GOD.

THAT IS BEYOND HUMAN COMPREHENSION.

BUT HERE’S THE THING.  GOD COMMANDS YOU TO BELIEVE IN ONLY ONE GOD.  EVEN IF YOU CAN NOT UNDERSTAND IT.

REMEMBER, GOD SAYS, THE SECRET THINGS BELONG TO THE LORD OUR GOD.  BUT THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE REVEALED BELONG TO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOREVER THAT WE SHALL DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW, (WHICH IS THE LAW OF MOSES).

SO, YOU AND I AND EVERY PERSON WHO CLAIMS TO BE A CHILD OF GOD MUST BELIEVE IN ONE GOD WHETHER YOU UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT. 

AND YOU ARE COMMANDED BY GOD TO OBEY HIS LAW OF MOSES.

AND THAT ONE GOD IS MESSIAH YESHUA, JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE FATHER, THE SON, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GLORY OF GOD, MELCHIZEDEK, AT TIMES THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD, AND SO MUCH MORE.

WHEN YOU SEE ME, MESSIAH SAID, YOU SEE THE FATHER.  WHEN YOU SEE ME, YOU SEE THE ONE WHO SENT ME.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.28, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.29, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6

SO HERE’S WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT.

OBEY AND DO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. 

HAVE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA.

AND BELIEVE IN ONE GOD.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.

INCORPORATE THAT INTO YOUR LIFE AND YOU HAVE SALVATION.  THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

DEUTERONOMY 6.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, MARK 12.29, LUKE 4.4

YOU SHALL NOT PERVERT JUDGMENT

Shalom.

Our teaching this morning will continue in Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 16.18-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YOU SHALL NOT PERVERT JUDGMENT.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 16.18-22.

DEUTERONOMY 16.18  The Torah, which is The Word of GOD, also called The Law of Moses, requires Israel to appoint Judges and Officers in all their cities and towns.

The Judges hear and decide cases as is the custom today.  And the Officers have the responsibility to enforce the decisions of the Judges.

AND THE JUDGES ARE TO JUDGE THE PEOPLE WITH JUST JUDGMENT.

THE WORD JUST COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD STEH’DEHK, MEANING, RIGHTEOUSNESS.

RIGHTEOUSNESS IN JUDGMENT, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IN LIFE IS ATTAINED BY DOING WHAT TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES SAYS TO DO.

THE WORD JUDGMENT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD MEESH’PAHT THAT MEANS, LAWFUL.

BEING LAWFUL IN JUDGMENT IS JUDGING THE PEOPLE ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

LIKEWISE, YOU AND ME AND EVERYONE ARE COMMANDED BY GOD TO LIVE A JUST AND LAWFUL LIFE ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  ROMANS 2.13

THEREFORE JUDGES ARE COMMANDED BY GOD TO JUDGE THE PEOPLE ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

WHY HAVE THE NATIONS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES AND REPLACED IT WITH MAN MADE LAWS WHEN THE LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT?

HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 19.8, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 19.7

THE HEBREW WORD FOR, AS SOME BIBLES WRITE, CONVERTING, OR RENEWING, OR RESTORING THE SOUL, IS “SHOOV” THAT MEANS “TURN OR RETURN.”

THUS THE BIBLE READS, THE LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT, TURNING THE SOUL TO GOD, OR RETURNING THE SOUL TO GOD.

THE JUDGE, AND THE MAN AND WOMAN ARE PERFECT IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD WHEN THE JUDGE JUDGES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE MAN AND WOMAN LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 KINGS 8.61

ADD TO THAT, MESSIAH SAYS, NOT EVERYONE THAT SAYS TO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT HE OR SHE THAT DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.

THE WILL OF THE FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS FOR YOU AND ME TO DELIGHT TO DO THE WILL OF GOD BY HAVING GOD’S TORAH, HIS LAW OF MOSES WITHIN OUR HEART.  AND THAT WE LIVE BY GOD’S LAW OF MOSES.

PROOF OF DOING THE WILL OF THE FATHER IS LOVING GOD AND OBEYING HIM BY KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS.  MESSIAH’S COMMANDMENTS ARE COLLECTIVELY THE LAW OF MOSES.

ADD TO THAT, ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN IS GIVEN TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND TORAH REQUIRES HAVING ATONEMENT.  AND THE ONLY ATONEMENT AVAILABLE TO MANKIND TODAY IS BY THE SACRIFICIAL DEATH, AND SHED BLOOD OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

MATTHEW 7.21, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8, ECCLESIASTES 8.5, LEVITICUS 17.11, JOHN 14.15

DEUTERONOMY 16.19  YOU SHALL NOT WREST JUDGMENT.

THE WORD WREST MEANS, PERVERT, PUT AWAY, TURN ASIDE, AND TURN AWAY.

GOD SAYS DO NOT PERVERT JUDGMENT BY PUTTING AWAY THE LAWS OF TORAH THAT HAS ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN IT.

DO NOT PERVERT JUDGMENT BY TURNING ASIDE FROM GOD’S LAWS, OR TURNING AWAY FROM GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

NEVER TURN AWAY FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN JUDGMENT OR IN YOUR WALK WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

You shall not Respect or Regard persons.  Actually, the verse reads, You shall not Respect Faces.  The Judge should never favor one person above another, or even favor a person because of his or her face.

THE JUDGE MUST JUDGE WITH JUST JUDGMENT ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAW OF MOSES. 

DEUTERONOMY 1.17, PROVERBS 24.23-25

Neither take a gift, The LORD GOD says, for the gift blinds the eyes of the wise.  The wise being The Judge or any GODLY person.

This GIFT, when speaking about Judgment, comes from the Hebrew word SHO’KHAD that means BRIBE.

Do not take a Bribe for the Bribe blinds the eyes of the wise.  You become blind to the truth when you accept a bribe.

And taking a bribe perverts the words of the Righteous.  The Righteous is the Judge who is called upon by GOD to be a Righteous Judge.  But when he or she takes a bribe the Judge turns from GOD and perverts GOD’S Law.

DEUTERONOMY 16.20  THAT WHICH IS ALTOGETHER JUST SHALL YOU FOLLOW THAT YOU SHALL LIVE, AND INHERIT THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU.

ALTOGETHER JUST IN HEBREW IS STEH’DEHK STEH’DEHK THAT MEANS, PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS.

PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS IS DOING WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

THEREFORE THE BIBLE SAYS, THAT WHICH IS ALTOGETHER JUST SHALL YOU FOLLOW THAT YOU SHALL LIVE, AND INHERIT THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU.

Those Words were written some 3,400 years ago just prior to The Children of Israel entering into, and possessing the land of Canaan that became The Land of Israel that GOD promised Abraham and The Jewish People some 4,000 years ago.

GENESIS 12.7, GENESIS 13.15, GENESIS 17.8.

TODAY, GOD PROMISES ALL HUMANITY THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO INHERIT THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN, WITH MESSIAH YESHUA “IF” YOU FOLLOW AFTER PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS.

REMEMBER, PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS IS LIVING BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING YOUR SINS FORGIVEN IN MESSIAH YESHUA.

AND GOD ALSO PROMISES EVERY HUMAN BEING THAT HE OR SHE IS ABLE TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH MESSIAH YESHUA “IF” YOU FOLLOW AFTER PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS.

PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS IS DESCRIBED BY MESSIAH YESHUA WHEN HE SAID, IT IS WRITTEN, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

BUT UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE SO MANY BIBLE TEACHERS WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR OPTIONAL.  AND BY TEACHING THAT LIE, AND FOR THOSE WHO FOLLOW THAT LIE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL, THE TEACHER AND THE DOER OF THE LIE REJECT SALVATION AND WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  UNLESS THEY REPENT AND TURN TO GOD AND LIVE BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. 

MATTHEW 7.21-23, EZEKIEL 18.21

NOWHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES GOD, OR MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, OR THE PROPHETS, OR THE DISCIPLES, OR THE APOSTLES EVER SAY THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL.  THAT IS TEACHING BLASPHEMY.  AND BLASPHEMY IS SPEAKING EVIL OF GOD.

FOR THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER. 

ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

DEUTERONOMY 16.21  A better translation is, You shall not set up an ah’shay’rah (Hebrew for a false Canaanite goddess) of any trees near the altar of The LORD Your GOD which you shall make for yourself.

DEUTERONOMY 16.22  And you shall not erect any idol for yourself which The LORD Your GOD hates.

LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF GOD’S LAWS FOR MURDER, KIDNAPPING, AND STEALING.

MURDER

Let’s start with DEUTERONOMY 17.6.

At the mouth of two witnesses or three witnesses shall he or she be worthy of death be put to death.  But at the mouth of one witness he or she shall not be put to death.

GOD CALLS FOR THE DEATH SENTENCE FOR MURDERERS.

EXODUS 21.12-15  He or she that strikes a person that he dies shall surely be put to death.

If a person does not lie in wait, but death came about because it was an act of GOD that GOD delivered that person into his hand, he or she shall not die for that person’s death.

But if a man schemes against another and kills him treacherously, the killer shall be put to death.

GENESIS 9.6, LEVITICUS 24.17, NUMBERS 35.16-21, 30-31

KIDNAPPING

EXODUS 21.16  He or she who kidnaps a person, whether he has sold him, or is still holding him shall be put to death.

DEUTERONOMY 24.7

STEALING/ROBBERY/THEFT

HEBREW BIBLE EXODUS 22.1-2, CHRISTIAN BIBLE EXODUS 22.2-3

If a thief is caught breaking in, and is killed, it is not murder.  If the thief is killed during daylight when the thief can be seen, it is murder.

Why? Because, One may kill his attacker to save his own life, but he may not kill the thief to save his property.

Since there is no Law in the United States to sell a thief, the thief should be handed over to the Judge for just judgment.

ZECHARIAH 5.1-4  Everyone that steals shall be cut off. Meaning, that person is to be destroyed  Unless he or she turns to GOD and turns from all their sins including stealing, to obeying GOD and every Word GOD speaks in The Bible.

PROVERBS 6.30-31  Do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his soul because he is hungry.  But if he is found he shall restore seven fold.  He shall give all that he owns in his house.

ECCLESIASTES 8.11  BECAUSE SENTENCE AGAINST AN EVIL WORK IS NOT EXECUTED SPEEDILY, THEREFORE THE HEART OF THE SONS OF MEN IS FULLY SET IN THEM TO DO EVIL.

To summarize,

Do not pervert Judgment.  That is, Do Not Turn Away from GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.  And that is true for everyone who calls themselves a Child of GOD, a Believer in The Messiah Yeshua.

BECAUSE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORD OF GOD.

Shalom.

HOW DO YOU REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE REJOICING?

Shalom.

Our teaching this morning will continue in Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 16.9-17.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, HOW DO YOU REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE REJOICING?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 16.9-17.

The Feast of Weeks, known in Hebrew as SHAVUOT, for WEEKS, and also called PENTECOST, comes seven weeks after the day of the Sabbath during the days of Passover.  LEVITICUS 23.15

To make it somewhat confusing as to what Sabbath to begin the count of seven weeks to The Feast of Weeks, the Pharisees understand that The Sabbath to begin the count is The Day after The First Day of Passover.  The First Day of Passover is a Sabbath no matter what Day it falls on.  LEVITICUS 23.7

The Sadducees understood that The Sabbath to begin the count is The Saturday Sabbath during Passover.  Therefore they began the count the following day on Sunday.

While the Qumran Community of Jewish People believed that The Sabbath to begin the count of seven weeks was The Saturday Sabbath of the following week after Passover.

The Qumran Community of Jewish People lived on the western shore of the Dead Sea between approximately 150 B.C.E./B.C. and 68 C.E./A.D. where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a cave at the shore of the Dead Sea in 1947.

Let’s again look at LEVITICUS 23.15 so that I can add my thoughts as to what Sabbath the count to seven Weeks should begin.

LEVITICUS 23.15  I associate the count to The Feast of Weeks with Messiah Yeshua’s Death, Burial, and Resurrection.

Messiah was killed on The First Day of Passover to make Atonement for our sins.

I see the day of The Wave Offering spoken of by GOD in LEVITICUS 23.15 to also be Prophetic of The Day (Sunday) Messiah was raised from the dead.

Messiah held His Passover Seder, called in Christianity The Last Supper, on Wednesday Evening.

Messiah was killed the following day Thursday on The First Day of Passover.

He was in the grave Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and raised early the first day of the week on Sunday.  MARK 16.9

Therefore it is my opinion that the count to The Feast of Weeks should begin on the Sunday after The Saturday Sabbath during Passover.

However I follow the Jewish Calendar for The Feast of Weeks that begins the count the day after Passover.

The Feast of Weeks, also called The Festival of The Harvest is usually celebrated during the time of May or June.

Some in Judaism see the Festival of Weeks to be associated with The LORD GOD descending upon Mount Sinai, and giving The Jewish People and the world The Ten Commandments.  That is not Biblical.

The Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost is a Festival celebrating the conclusion of the grain harvest along with having Atonement.

And The LORD calls upon us to Rejoice before The LORD Our GOD on The Feast of Weeks.  DEUTERONOMY 16.9-11

Then it is said in The Bible that we should observe The Feast of Tabernacles for seven days.  Although Leviticus 23.33-36 Commands us to observe The Feast of Tabernacles for eight days.  LEVITICUS 23.33-36

As in all The Festivals of The LORD that are written in Leviticus 23, GOD requires us to make atonement by the shed blood of a sacrifice offering to The LORD, or be sure that we have Atonement.

Our Atonement today, and the only Atonement that is available to all mankind was made by Messiah Yeshua’s voluntary death, and shed blood on a Roman Cross some 2,000 years ago in Jerusalem.

LEVITICUS 17.11, JOHN 19.33-34

And The Feast of Tabernacles is also a time to Rejoice before The LORD Our GOD.  DEUTERONOMY 16.13-15

When The Temple is standing in Jerusalem, GOD Commands the men to appear before Him three times in a year.  In The Feast of Unleavened Bread that is Passover, and in The Feast of Weeks that is also called Pentecost, and in The Feast of Tabernacles.

And they shall not appear before The LORD empty.  That, I believe means, the males must bring a clean animal for sacrifice to The LORD.

When there is a Temple standing in Jerusalem, the sacrificial system will be reinstated.  LEVITICUS 17.8-9

Therefore GOD says, We are to Rejoice before The LORD in The Feast of Weeks, and during The Days of Tabernacles.  And of course during The Days of Passover.

Passover is a time for The Jewish People to Rejoice because The LORD GOD established the first Passover in Egypt on the Day He delivered His People from four hundred years of Egyptian slavery.  And that began our journey to the Promised Land Canaan that is now called The Land of Israel.

The world should consider this.  If The Jewish People were altogether killed in Egypt while serving the Egyptians as their slaves 3,800 years ago, there would be no Messiah Yeshua to be our Atonement for all the sins we have committed.  There would be no Salvation, nor would there be an Eternal Life in Heaven.

And if The Jewish People were altogether killed in Egypt, there would be no Bible, no Teachings of GOD, no Law of GOD called Torah, The Law of Moses to lead a GODLY life, and no Teachings Who GOD is.

The world would be a pagan place to live.  Man living by their own evil thoughts, and godless teachings, serving man made gods, living in lawlessness.  Having no future.

As GOD said to Noah before the flood that destroyed all flesh but Noah and his family, The world was filled with the wickedness of man.  That every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And GOD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved The LORD in His Heart.

And in the days of Noah, The LORD destroyed man whom He created from the face of the earth, both man and beast and the creeping thing, and the birds of the air because GOD was sorry that He made them.

And only because Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, meaning that Noah obeyed GOD, His Laws, Teachings and Instructions did Noah find grace in The Eyes of GOD.

Therefore GOD saved only eight people, Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives.

Years later, GOD took Abraham and Sarah out from the Gentiles to make a special people to Himself called The Jewish People to receive The Spoken Word of GOD from GOD; GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions to lead a GODLY life.

And GOD ordained The Jewish People to bring The Word of GOD to the world.

GOD had The Jewish People write The Bible from Genesis through Revelation from The Words they received directly from THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that teaches mankind what GOD requires of us to lead a GODLY and RIGHTEOUS life to have a good life on earth, and Eternal Life in Heaven.

And that is accomplished by living according to every Word that Proceeds out of The Mouth of GOD written in The Bible, and having Atonement in The Jewish Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD ALMIGHTY.

HOW DO YOU REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE REJOICING?

There are numerous books on the market that give you the writer’s opinion on how to rejoice when you don’t feel like rejoicing.

But the best Book to find the answer on how to rejoice before The LORD when you don’t feel like rejoicing is The Bible.  Because The Bible, that has The Written Word of GOD, and The Written Word of GODLY men and women, offers numerous ways to Rejoice before The LORD when you’re just not in the mood to rejoice.

For me, it’s just reading The Bible when I might not be in the mood to rejoice because The Bible is medicine, GOD’S medicine for everything.  Even rejoicing before The LORD.

When I’m looking for a pick me up, I’ll read The Psalms, such as Psalm 1, 2, 16, 34, 39, 45, 119.  I enjoy reading Isaiah especially from Isaiah 40 to Isaiah 66.  And The Books of Proverbs, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and the letters of Peter.

Every reading in The Bible is good GODLY medicine to help you rejoice before The LORD when you might no feel like rejoicing.

The Bible is the best place to go to lift your spirits.

JEREMIAH 15.16  Jeremiah The Prophet said to GOD, Your Word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart. 

Like Jeremiah, GOD has called you to Himself.

Also you will find in The Bible that you are not the only one who needs to be raised up by The LORD for some rejoicing.  As you well know, the world can be a tough place for everyone.

So let’s look at some Scriptures that might help you Rejoice when you are just not in the mood to Rejoice.  But you would like to Rejoice.

ISAIAH 57.15  GOD WHO INHABITS ETERNITY, WHOSE NAME IS HOLY, WHO LIVES FOREVER, WHO LIVES IN THE HIGH AND HOLY PLACE IN HEAVEN, WHO ALSO LIVES WITH THOSE THAT HAVE A CONTRITE AND HUMBLE SPIRIT.  THAT IS, THOSE WHO HAVE A CRUSHED SPIRIT, AND A HUMBLE SPIRIT.

A HUMBLE SPIRIT OBEYS GOD.

GOD PROMISES YOU THAT HE WILL REVIVE YOUR SPIRIT, AND HE WILL REVIVE THE HEART OF THE CRUSHED ONES.  THAT IS GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU.  HE WILL RESTORE LIFE AND JOY TO YOU.

ISAIAH 61.1-3  THE LORD GOD PROMISES YOU THAT HE, MESSIAH YESHUA WILL BIND UP THE BROKEN HEARTED, COMFORT ALL THAT MOURN, GIVE YOU BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL OF JOY FOR MOURNING, THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS.  THAT YOU WILL BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD THAT GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED. 

AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL CAUSE YOU TO REJOICE IN HIM AGAIN.

THAT IS GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU.  LUKE 4.18-21

1 PETER 4.12-14  BEING TESTED, GOING THROUGH TOUGH TIMES HAPPENS TO EVERYONE.  BUT WE OF THE FAMILY OF GOD ARE DIFFERENT BECAUSE GOD MIGHT BE TESTING YOU WITH A FIERY TRIAL TO SEE IF YOU WILL OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS OR NOT. 

BUT REJOICE, PETER SAYS, BECAUSE YOU ARE PARTAKERS OF MESSIAH’S SUFFERINGS, AND YOU WILL BE GLAD WITH GREAT JOY AT MESSIAH’S RETURN.  DEUTERONOMY 8.1-2

HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 5.12, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 5.11  REJOICE IN THE LORD BECAUSE GOD WILL ALWAYS DEFEND YOU. 

HE WILL SURROUND YOU AS WITH A SHIELD.  THAT IS GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU. 

GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  THERE IS NO PLACE WHERE GOD IS NOT THERE TO HELP YOU, AND DEFEND YOU.  BECAUSE GOD LOVES YOU, AND BLESSES THE RIGHTEOUS.  THOSE WHO OBEY GOD AND DO THEIR BEST TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES OBEYING GOD’S LAW OF MOSES. 

AND BECAUSE YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD YOU WILL REJOICE AND SHOUT FOR JOY. 

JEREMIAH 23.24, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 34.20, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 34.19  GOD WILL ALWAYS DELIVER THE RIGHTEOUS FROM EVERY AFFLICTION YOU MIGHT BE FACING.  KNOW THAT, AND BELIEVE IT.  BECAUSE THAT IS CAUSE FOR YOU TO REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD. 

THE RIGHTEOUS ARE THOSE WHO OBEY GOD, WHO OBEY HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE. 

LUKE 21.19  IN YOUR PATIENCE YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE.  WHEN YOU ARE PATIENT, YOU WILL HAVE A GOOD OUTCOME.  WHEN YOU ARE IMPATIENT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE ANXIETY, UNEASINESS, PERHAPS ANGER AND FEAR.  AND HAVING NO PATIENCE MIGHT PROVE DANGEROUS.

SO CALL ON GOD FOR PATIENCE.  FOR HELP IN DECISION MAKING.  CHECK YOUR BIBLE FOR HELP. 

BY BEING PATIENT YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE.  NOT BEING PATIENT MIGHT COST YOU. 

ISAIAH 26.3, ROMANS 12.12

JAMES 1.2-4  TESTINGS WORK PATIENCE.

ACTS 16.34  BELIEVING IN GOD, AND BELIEVING GOD ARE KEY.  WHEN YOU’RE BUMMED OUT, THAT MIGHT BE DIFFICULT.  OPEN YOUR BIBLE TO SOME FAVORITE SCRIPTURES OF YOURS.  AND READ.  AND READ.  AND GOD WILL RESTORE YOUR HOPE.  HE WILL RESTORE YOUR CONFIDENCE, AND HE WILL RESTORE YOUR JOY.

YOU KNOW THERE IS MUCH IN THE WORLD TO TAKE YOUR JOY AWAY, AND CAUSE YOU TO BE SAD AND SORROWFUL.  BUT GOD IS ABOVE ALL THAT STUFF.  HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD.  AND BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS A SPECIAL AND UNIQUE LOVE FOR YOU THE LORD WILL RAISE YOU UP, AND REVIVE YOUR SPIRIT, AND CAUSE YOU TO REJOICE IN HIM BECAUSE YOU ARE A SPECIAL CHILD OF GOD.

Shalom.
