Our Teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 5.1-7.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. THEREFORE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY IS POLYTHEISM.
And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 5.1-7
The Talmud refers to The Book of Deuteronomy as Mishneh Torah, commonly translated as, “Repetition or Review of The Torah.” Or “Explanation of The Torah.”
The Torah, as you know, is The Law of Moses written in the first five Books of The Bible.
The Words of The Book of Deuteronomy were spoken by Moses to The Children of Israel during the last five weeks of his life. Just prior to the battle, and Israel’s entrance into, and possession of The Promised Land, the Land of Canaan.
The Children of Israel walked from Egypt to Canaan in The Exodus through the great wilderness for forty years. Leading the way was The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Some people rode in wagons drawn by horses. Others rode on horses, camels, and donkeys to The Promised Land that GOD renamed The Land of Israel.
And Moses chose certain Laws to review and explain to The Children of Israel in The Book of Deuteronomy.
The Book of Deuteronomy is like The New Testament that does not review or explain the entire Law that GOD gave to Moses Face to face. Those Laws of GOD are called The Law of Moses, or in Hebrew, The Torah.
AND ONE OF THOSE LAWS MOSES REVIEWED AND EXPLAINED IS THIS; THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.
Although much of Judaism credits Abraham with the dramatic change from the worldwide belief in more than one God to the correct belief in ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS, The Biblical accounts of Moses, The Prophets, The Writings and The New Testament confirm, AS GOD TEACHES, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN EXODUS 20.1-6, DEUTERONOMY 4.35, 39, PSALM 86.9-10, ISAIAH 44.6,8, MARK 12.28-29.
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. NOT A TRINITY OF THREE gods.
AND GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, TEACHES US THAT THE ONE GOD OF CREATION IS THE SAVIOR. ISAIAH 43.10,11, ACTS 5.29-32, TITUS 3.6, 2 PETER 1.11, JUDE 25
OUR LORD AND SAVIOR IS GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, THE ONE GOD OF CREATION.
THE TEACHING THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS IS TAUGHT IN BOTH THE OLD TESTAMENT (TNAKH) AND THE NEW TESTAMENT, AS BOTH ARE ONE BIBLE AND NOT TWO SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT BIBLES.
FACT. BOTH THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENT HAVE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES FOR IT’S FOUNDATION.
DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 7.21-23, LUKE 4.4, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 3.31, ISAIAH 40.8
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD TESTAMENT (TNAKH) AND THE NEW TESTAMENT IS THE COMING OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IN THE NEW TESTAMENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF GIVING HIS LIFE AND SHEDDING HIS BLOOD TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL MANKIND.
AS YOU WELL KNOW, THE ANIMAL SACRIFICE WAS GOD’S LAW FOR ATONEMENT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT (TNAKH) FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES WHEN THERE IS A TEMPLE STANDING IN JERUSALEM. THAT WAS GOD’S FORMULA FOR SALVATION THAT LED TO ETERNAL LIFE.
WHILE GOD’S LAW FOR ATONEMENT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, AFTER THE TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED IN 70 C.E./A.D., IS THE SACRIFICIAL DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES. THAT IS GOD’S FORMULA TODAY FOR SALVATION THAT LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE.
LEVITICUS 17.8,9,11, DEUTERONOMY 5.1, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.1-12, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 3.31, JAMES 1.25, 1 JOHN 3.4, JEREMIAH 31.31-34, HEBREWS 8.8-12, HEBREWS 10.16-17
However the sacrificial system will be reinstated in The Millennial Period in Israel when Messiah returns, and reigns over all the earth, and The Temple is rebuilt. EZEKIEL 45.15-17, ZECHARIAH 14.21
THE DOCTRINE OF ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS NEVER CHANGES BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS BESIDE GOD. THAT IS SPOKEN FROM THE LIPS OF GOD. ISAIAH 46.9
A PROPHET IS ONE WHO RECEIVES THE WORD FROM GOD, AND THEN REVEALS GOD’S WORD TO THE PEOPLE, AS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.
THE BIBLICAL TEACHING OF ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS MAKES THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT GODS POLYTHEISM.
Polytheism is the doctrine or belief in more than one god, or many gods.
The trinity teaches three different and distinct gods. And that is polytheism. The trinity teaches that the Father is a god, the Son is a different god, and the Spirit is yet a different god. That is polytheism, the belief in three gods, or the belief in many gods.
In our study verses of Deuteronomy 5.1-7, Moses called all Israel together and said to them, “Hear O Israel.” In Hebrew, Sh’mah Y’Israel, Hear, Listen, and Obey, Israel, The Statutes and Judgments that I speak to you in your ears this day to learn them, and keep them, and do them.
“The LORD OUR GOD”, Moses said, “made a Covenant with us in Horeb”. (Horeb is Mount Sinai). The Covenant Moses is speaking about is The Ten Commandments that GOD gave to Israel for The Jewish People and all mankind. ISAIAH 43.10-11
And Moses continued, “The LORD did not make this Covenant with our fathers, but with us who are all of us alive this day.
The LORD talked with you Face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire.
And I stood between The LORD and you at that time to show you The Word of The LORD. And you were afraid because of the fire. And you did not go up into the mountain.
AND THE LORD SAID, I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO BROUGHT YOU OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT FROM THE HOUSE OF BONDAGE.
YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER gods BEFORE ME.”
BELIEVING GOD, AND BELIEVING EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS CRITICAL.
AND BELIEVING THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS IS VERY CRITICAL. NUMBERS 20.12, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4
I believe that GOD had Moses review GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instructions that are written in The Law of Moses because The Children of Israel were surrounded by heathen in Egypt, Edom, Moab, Ammon, Canaan, and other countries where those people lived their lives believing in many gods. They lived in idolatry, never living by The Words that GOD spoke to Adam and Eve, or Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Moses and The Prophets.
Rather the heathen around them lived by the teachings of man.
Today, very few live by The Biblical Teachings of GOD ALMIGHTY.
The nations live by the word of man. And we are living in those nations that disobey GOD.
Israel by far is closer to GOD and His Word than all the other nations. But Israel and The Jewish People could draw much closer to their GOD, THE MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL.
AND THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL RECEIVE THEIR GOD AND MESSIAH, MESSIAH YESHUA. ZECHARIAH 12.10
Therefore we must be reminded continually of GOD’S Teachings as GOD Teaches us in The Bible, lest we fall away from The LORD.
You can read throughout The Bible that GOD often repeats and reviews His Word, His Laws, His Teachings, and Instructions. Because we are surrounded by, and live in nations that change GOD’S Word, and often corrupt GOD’S Word that is a detriment to those who follow man and not GOD.
Much of the world believes in a trinity of three different gods even though The Bible repeats itself numerous times that there is ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.
And in certain Bibles, the translator or translators change The Word of GOD at times to conform to, or follow man’s false teachings, rather than the truth of GOD’S Teachings as Spoken by GOD in The Bible. 2 CORINTHIANS 2.17
ALL BIBLES ARE WRITTEN BY A TRANSLATOR, OR A GROUP OF TRANSLATORS. HOWEVER THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE MUST ALWAYS FOLLOW AND COMPLY WITH TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25.
FOR EXAMPLE JOHN 1.1, CERTAIN COMMENTATORS TEACH THAT THE WORD IS MESSIAH/CHRIST. AND THAT IS CORRECT.
BUT THEY ALSO TEACH THAT THE WORD (MESSIAH/CHRIST) IS WITH GOD. THAT MESSIAH/CHRIST IS IN “COMMUNION” (SHARING) WITH GOD, BUT “DISTINCT” FROM GOD.
WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DESCRIBES THE WORD “DISTINCT” AS, NOT BEING THE SAME, SEPARATE, AND DIFFERENT.
THEREFORE THAT FALSE TEACHING THAT YESHUA IS GOD BUT “DISTINCT, DIFFERENT AND SEPARATE” FROM GOD IS POLYTHEISM, THE BELIEF IN MORE THAN ONE GOD.
THE YESHUA THE MESSIAH/ JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE ONE GOD OF CREATION.
HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 12.45,49, JOHN 14.9
JOHN 1.2 READS, THE SAME WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD.
BUT SOME COMMENTATORS FALSELY TEACH THAT MESSIAH WAS ALREADY IN EXISTENCE WITH GOD.
THAT IS WRONG BECAUSE THE MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE FATHER, AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN EXISTENCE.
THE READER OF THE BIBLE MUST ALWAYS BELIEVE THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE. BECAUSE GOD TEACHES, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.
FOR EXAMPLE, MESSIAH, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, SAYS, HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER. JOHN 14.9, DEUTERONOMY 6.4, MARK 12.29
WE MUST BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAYS. THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS GOD THE FATHER, THE ONE GOD OF CREATION.
WE MUST BELIEVE MESSIAH WHEN HE SAYS, HE THAT SEES ME SEES HIM THAT SENT ME. FOR I HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF MYSELF BUT THE FATHER THAT SENT ME. JOHN 12.45, 49
THE MESSIAH/JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS GOD THE FATHER.
YESHUA THE MESSIAH/JESUS CHRIST IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IS PROPHESIED IN TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT. AND WE MUST ALWAYS BELIEVE THE WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, ALWAYS.
ELOHIM, WHEN SPEAKING OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL IS GOD ALMIGHTY, MESSIAH YESHUA.
ISAIAH PROPHESIES THAT THE CHILD BORN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE SON GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, DEUTERONOMY 32.39, MATTHEW 1.1-21
THAT PROPHESIED CHILD, THE SON BORN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
THE PROPHET MICAH PROPHESIES THAT THE ONE BORN IN BETHLEHEM WHO IS TO BE RULER IN ISRAEL, WHO HAS NO BEGINNING AND NO END IS THE MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.
HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, ISAIAH 45.5-7,14,15,18
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND THAT ONE GOD, HA SHEM ELOHIM, IS THE FATHER, THE SON, THE MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SO MUCH MORE. HE IS ELOHIM. THE ONE GOD OF CREATION WHO IS THE “US” WHO MADE MAN IN “OUR” IMAGE. GENESIS 1.26
THE SAME ONE GOD, THE SAME ELOHIM, “US”, WHO WENT DOWN TO CONFUSE THEIR LANGUAGE. GENESIS 11.7
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. NOT THREE
LET’S LOOK AT JOHN 1.3. ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM. AND WITHOUT HIM WAS NOT ANYTHING MADE THAT WAS MADE.
SOME COMMENTATORS TEACH THAT MESSIAH/CHRIST WAS “ACTIVE IN THE WORK OF CREATION.”
THAT IS FOOLISHNESS. MESSIAH WAS NOT “ACTIVE IN THE WORK OF THE CREATION.” MESSIAH/CHRIST ALONE CREATED ALL THINGS BECAUSE HE IS ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY. ISAIAH 44.24, JOHN 1.3
MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO ALONE STRETCHED OUT THE HEAVENS, AND SPREAD OUT THE EARTH.
ONE MORE THING. MESSIAH IS NOT “EQUAL” WITH GOD. MESSIAH IS GOD.
JOHN 5.18 THE CORRECT READING IS, HE SAID THAT GOD WAS HIS FATHER, MAKING HIMSELF GOD.
PHILIPPIANS 2.6-7 CORRECTLY SAID, WHO BEING IN THE FORM OF GOD, CONSIDERED IT NOT ROBBERY TO BE GOD. BUT MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION, AND TOOK UPON HIMSELF THE FORM OF A SERVANT, AND MADE HIMSELF IN THE LIKENESS OF MEN. GENESIS 1.26
TO BELIEVE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NOT A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods, BEGINS BY FIRST BELIEVING GOD WHEN HE SAYS, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.
THEN GOD WILL GIVE YOU UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH / THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE IS THAT ONE GOD, THE WORD, WHO ALONE MADE ALL THINGS.
AND YES, GOD SPEAKS TO GOD, JOHN 17, YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. AND GOD CAN BE IN MANY PLACES PHYSICALLY ALL AT THE SAME TIME. BECAUSE GOD IS GOD, AND NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. GENESIS 18.14, MATTHEW 19.26
