Our teaching will come from Joshua 7.1-26.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, JESUS NEVER ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES. ABOLISHING THE LAW OF MOSES ABOLISHES THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD, AND THAT IS SIN THAT BRINGS EVIL UPON MAN.
ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25
And with that said, let’s read Joshua 7.1-26.
Let’s summarize these verses.
The Children of Israel entered The Promised Land Canaan after 400 years of Egyptian slavery, and walking through the wilderness for 40 years from Egypt to Canaan.
Canaan became The Land of Israel after The Children of Israel conquered and possessed Canaan that GOD gave to The Jewish People for an Everlasting Possession 3,400 years ago. GENESIS 17.8
The Children of Israel were in Jericho of Canaan. And GOD caused the wall of Jericho to fall down flat, and at GOD’S Command, The Children of Israel killed all the inhabitants of Jericho except Rahab the harlot, and all her family, because she hid The Jewish messengers that were sent to spy out the land. And Israel possessed Jericho.
GOD Commanded Israel to kill all the Canaanites in the city, and burn Jericho because The LORD did not want His People, The Children of Israel, whom GOD made a Holy People, to defile themselves with the abominations of the Canaanites who worshiped false gods, had abominable sexual relations, practiced magic and witchcraft, and lived their lives in violation of Every Law of GOD.
HOLINESS IS LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.
EXODUS 23.20-33, LEVITICUS 18, LEVITICUS 19.2, LEVITICUS 20, NUMBERS 33.50-56, DEUTERONOMY 7.1-6-26, DEUTERONOMY 18.9-14, DEUTERONOMY 20.16-18, 1 KINGS 21.26
AND GOD COMMANDED JOSHUA TO SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, JERICHO, AND ALL THAT ARE IN IT, ARE DEVOTED TO THE LORD. BEWARE, KEEP YOURSELVES FROM THE DEVOTED THINGS LEST YOU MAKE YOURSELVES A CURSED THING WHEN YOU TAKE OF THE DEVOTED THINGS, AND MAKE THE CAMP OF ISRAEL A CURSE. JOSHUA 6.16-19
THIS COMMAND IS SIMILAR TO WHAT GOD COMMANDED ADAM WHOM GOD CREATED TO LIVE FOREVER. GOD SAID TO ADAM, OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN YOU MAY FREELY EAT, BUT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF IT. FOR IN THE DAY THAT YOU EAT OF IT, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE.
WE KNOW HOW THAT ENDED. IN DEATH BECAUSE ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD.
GENESIS 2.16-17, GENESIS 3.4, 22, GENESIS 5.5
Back to Joshua. But The Children of Israel sinned against GOD. A man by the name of Achan from the Tribe of Judah took of the Devoted Things, and the anger of The LORD burned against The Children of Israel.
But not knowing of GOD’S anger, Joshua sent about 3,000 men to a Canaanite city of few people called Ai to destroy it. But the 3,000 men of Israel fled from before the few men of Ai. And the Canaanite men killed about 36 Israeli men of war. And the Canaanites chased them, and killed them, and the hearts of The Children of Israel melted, and became as water.
And Joshua tore his clothes and fell face down to the ground before The Ark of The LORD, he, and the elders of Israel, till evening, and put dust upon their heads.
And Joshua said, O LORD GOD, why have you brought this People over the Jordan to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites to destroy us? If only we had been content to live on the other side of the Jordan.
And The LORD said to Joshua, Get yourself up. Why are you going on this way on your face? Israel has sinned. And they have also transgressed My Covenant which I have Commanded them, for they have taken of The Devoted Things, and have stolen, and deceived, and put them among their things.
GOD’S COVENANT IS HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT IS LAW FOREVER.
And GOD said to Joshua, The Children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies because they were cursed. Neither will I be with you any more except you destroy the cursed from among you.
Rise up and Sanctify The People for tomorrow. For thus saith The LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, There is a cursed thing among you, O Israel. You can not stand before your enemies until you take away the cursed thing from among you.
In the morning you shall be brought according to your tribes, and the tribe which The LORD shall take shall come according to their families. And the family which The LORD shall take shall come man by man.
And it shall be that he that is taken with The Devoted Thing shall be burned with fire, he and all that he has, because he has sinned against The Covenant of The LORD. That is, he has sinned against The Spoken Word of GOD. He has done wickedness in Israel.
So Joshua rose up early in the morning and brought Israel by their tribes, and the tribe of Judah was taken. And he brought the families of Judah, and he took the family of the Zarhites, and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man. And Zabdi was taken. And Joshua brought Zabdi’s household man by man, and Achan was taken.
And Joshua said to Achan, My son, I beg you, give Thanks to The LORD GOD OF ISRAEL and make confession to Him, and tell me now what you have done. Do not hide it from me.
And Achan confessed, and said, I have sinned against The LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, and I have done this.
When I saw among the spoils a beautiful Babylonian garment, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold of 50 shekels weight, I took them, and they are hid in the ground in my tent, and the silver is under it.
So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent, and there The Devoted Things to GOD were hidden in the tent.
And they brought them to Joshua, and to all The Children of Israel, and laid them out before The LORD.
And Joshua, and all Israel took Achan, and the silver, and the garment, and the bar of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his donkeys, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had, and they brought them to the valley of Achor, a Hebrew word meaning Trouble.
And Joshua said, Why have you troubled us? The LORD shall trouble you this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire after they stoned them with stones.
And they raised over him a great heap of stones. So The LORD turned from the fierceness of His Anger. And name of that place is called the Valley of Achor, or the Valley of Trouble.
Because of this man’s sin, he, and his wife, and his children, were killed, and all that he owned destroyed. And 36 fighting men of Israel were killed because of one man’s sin, Disobeying The Spoken Word of GOD, The Everlasting Covenant of The LORD that GOD requires all mankind to obey.
Is not GOD The GOD of the Gentiles also? ROMANS 3.29
WHY DON’T BIBLE TEACHERS TEACH WHAT SIN IS?
IT IS CLEARLY WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT SIN IS BREAKING ANY LAW OF GOD IN THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.
AND SIN IS ALSO TRANSGRESSING ANY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.
LOOK, NO ONE CAN ABOLISH GOD’S LAW. NOT EVEN GOD.
For a Bible teacher to prepare a Message or a Bible Study, that person must spend hours searching The Bible for thoughts and Words to speak, and verses of Scripture to back their teaching and explain. The Bible teacher sees throughout The Scriptures that sin is disobeying anything GOD says. Therefore The Bible teacher must tell the people whom he is teaching that Sin is disobeying any Word GOD Speaks in The Bible. And sin is also Disobeying any Word GOD speaks in Torah, The Law of Moses. It’s that simple because Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible is Law that must be obeyed by everyone.
1 JOHN 3.4, NUMBERS 5.6, NUMBERS 15.29-31, ISAIAH 24.4-6, ISAIAH 42.24-25, LUKE 8.21, LUKE 16.17
ANYONE WHO READS THE BIBLE CAN ALSO SEE THAT EVERY EVIL JUDGMENT FROM GOD SUCH AS KILLINGS, MURDER, WARS, PLAGUES LIKE CORONAVIRUS, BEING DISPOSSESSED FROM LANDS, SICKNESS, DISEASE, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES, STORMS, ETC., ARE BECAUSE PEOPLE DISOBEY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.
JOSHUA 6.16-19, JOSHUA 7.15, 1 CHRONICLES 16.15-17, ISAIAH 45.7
Jesus never came to abolish The Law of Moses. Jesus The Messiah came to be our Atonement, and to set an example for humanity to follow by living your life according to The Law of Moses. That is why Jesus did not sin. He obeyed Torah, The Law of Moses.
MATTHEW 26.28, 1 PETER 2.21-22, ROMANS 5.11
The Church Doctrine that Jesus, or Paul, or whoever, abolished The Law of Moses is satanic. By teaching that The Law of Moses is no longer in effect, The Church teaches Sin and Disobedience to GOD. And sin, that is Disobedience to GOD, is the One Reason for all the evil in the world.
Abolishing The Law of Moses is a Salvation killer and a Doctrine for curses and hell. Religion should teach how to have a relationship with The GOD of Heaven by living your life according to Every Word GOD Speaks in The Bible. That is what GOD requires of all mankind. DEUTERONOMY 28
Look at the world today with coronavirus. The United States looks like war zones in various places. Because The Law of Moses is not obeyed.
GOD COMMANDS US NOT TO ADD TO THE WORD GOD COMMANDS US, NOR TAKE AWAY FROM IT, THAT WE KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD OUR GOD THAT GOD COMMANDS US. DEUTERONOMY 4.2
THE SHEMA IS VERY IMPORTANT IN JUDAISM.
SHEMA YISRAEL ADONAI ELOHENU, ADONAI EKHAD. HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. DEUTERONOMY 6.4
HEAR, AS IN HEAR O ISRAEL, IS FROM THE HEBREW WORD, SHEMA, THAT ALSO MEANS, LISTEN AND OBEY.
GOD SAID THROUGH HIS PROPHET MOSES, HEAR O ISRAEL, LISTEN TO AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.
GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE TO HEAR, LISTEN TO, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN HIS BOOK, THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.
IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT IS ONE BIBLE, GOD PROVIDES THE WORLD WITH THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF SACRED WRITINGS DEDICATED TO THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE FROM ISRAEL IN ANCIENT TIMES.
THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, HA SHEM, SPEAKS, OR IS WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT 1,354 TIMES.
AND THE LORD, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, HA SHEM, SPEAKS, OR IS WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT 719 TIMES.
AND THE JEWISH MESSIAH CALLED CHRIST IN CHRISTIANITY, WHO IS HA SHEM, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, SPEAKS, OR IS WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT 556 TIMES.
AND JESUS, THE CHRISTIAN NAME FOR THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, IS HA SHEM, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, SPEAKS, OR IS WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT 983 TIMES.
THEREFORE GOD, THE LORD, MESSIAH, AND JESUS, ALL ONE AND THE SAME GOD, SPEAK, OR ARE WRITTEN ABOUT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT 3,603 TIMES.
MANY JEWISH PEOPLE RECITE THE SHEMA EVERY MORNING AND EVENING BECAUSE THE SHEMA IS THE BASIC, THEOLOGICAL STATEMENT OF JUDAISM, THE JEWISH CONFESSION OF FAITH. HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.
THE SHEMA TEACHES JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL PEOPLES TO HEAR, LISTEN TO, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.
GOD SPEAKS THROUGHOUT THE NEW TESTAMENT 3,603 TIMES.
ADD TO THAT, THE LORD GOD SPEAKS, OR IS WRITTEN ABOUT IN TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT, 10,210 TIMES, OR A TOTAL OF 13,813 TIMES IN BOTH TESTAMENTS.
THE BIBLE IS A BOOK ABOUT GOD, FOR GOD IS YOUR LIFE.
GOD COMMANDS EVERYONE TO HEAR, LISTEN TO, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. IT IS WRITTEN.
DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4
READING THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS READING ABOUT GOD, KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING WHO GOD IS, AND WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU. GOD COMMANDS YOU TO HEAR, LISTEN TO, AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IN TNAKH AND THE NEW TESTAMENT. AND KNOW THAT THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA, ARE HA SHEM ELOHIM, ONE AND THE SAME GOD. BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.
THE NEW TESTAMENT IS ALSO A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF SACRED WRITINGS DEDICATED TO THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.
NEW TESTAMENT IN HEBREW IS B’RIT CHADASHA, MEANING NEW COVENANT. AND GOD WILL MAKE A NEW COVENANT WITH YOU WHEN YOU RECEIVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, AND LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. AND GOD WILL PUT HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN YOUR INNERMOST BEING, AND WRITE IT UPON YOUR HEART. AND GOD WILL BE YOUR GOD, AND GOD WILL COUNT YOU AMONG HIS PEOPLE. AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL FORGIVE YOUR INIQUITY, AND REMEMBER YOUR SIN NO MORE.
HEBREW BIBLE JEREMIAH 31.30-33, CHRISTIAN BIBLE JEREMIAH 31.31-34
THEREFORE REJECTING MESSIAH YESHUA IS SIN BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN, THE LORD GOD, IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD THE FATHER, THE ONE WHO SENT HIM. AND HIS SHED BLOOD IS FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, THE FORGIVENESS OF ALL YOUR SINS.
BUT AFTER RECEIVING MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE WHICH IS NOT DIFFICULT, BUT FOR YOUR GOOD.
THEREFORE BELIEVING IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA FOR ATONEMENT, AND LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE RESULTS IN A GOOD, PROSPEROUS LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.
