GOD’S LAWS FOR SEX CRIMES

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 22.13-29.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR SEX CRIMES.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 22.13-29

LET’S REVIEW THESE WORDS.  IF A MAN MARRIES A WOMAN AND HATES HER AFTER HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH HER, AND BRINGS UP AN EVIL NAME AGAINST HER, AND SAYS, I TOOK THIS WOMAN AND WHEN I HAD RELATIONS WITH HER, I FOUND HER NOT TO BE A VIRGIN.  THEN SHALL THE GIRL’S FATHER AND MOTHER PRODUCE THE EVIDENCE OF THE GIRL’S VIRGINITY BEFORE THE ELDERS OF THE CITY.

AND THE ELDERS OF THAT CITY SHALL TAKE THE MAN AND PUNISH HIM AND FINE HIM ONE HUNDRED SHEKELS OF SILVER AND GIVE IT TO THE GIRL’S FATHER, FOR THE MAN HAS DEFAMED A VIRGIN IN ISRAEL.  AND HE SHALL NEVER HAVE THE RIGHT TO DIVORCE HER.

BUT IF THE CHARGE IS TRUE THAT THE GIRL WAS FOUND NOT TO BE A VIRGIN, THEN THE GIRL SHALL BE BROUGHT OUT TO THE ENTRANCE OF HER FATHER’S HOUSE, AND THE MEN OF HER CITY SHALL STONE HER TO DEATH.  FOR SHE DID WICKEDNESS IN ISRAEL TO PLAY THE WHORE WHILE LIVING IN HER FATHER’S HOUSE.  SO SHALL YOU PUT EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.

IF A MAN IS FOUND LYING WITH ANOTHER MAN’S WIFE, BOTH OF THEM, THE MAN AND THE WOMAN SHALL DIE.  SO SHALL YOU PUT AWAY EVIL FROM ISRAEL.

IF A WOMAN WHO IS A VIRGIN IS ENGAGED TO A MAN, AND A MAN COMES UPON HER AND LIES WITH HER, YOU SHALL TAKE THE TWO OF THEM OUT TO THE GATE OF THAT CITY AND STONE THEM TO DEATH.  THE GIRL BECAUSE SHE DID NOT CRY OUT FOR HELP IN THE CITY, AND THE MAN BECAUSE HE VIOLATED ANOTHER MAN’S WIFE.  SO SHALL YOU PUT AWAY EVIL FROM AMONG YOU.

BUT IF THE MAN COMES UPON THE ENGAGED GIRL IN THE FIELD, AND THE MAN FORCES HER, AND LIES WITH HER, THEN THE MAN ONLY THAT LAY WITH HER SHALL DIE.  AND YOU SHALL DO NOTHING TO THE GIRL.

IF A MAN COMES UPON A VIRGIN WHO IS NOT ENGAGED, AND HE TAKES HOLD OF HER AND LIES WITH HER, AND THEY ARE DISCOVERED, THE MAN WHO LAY WITH HER SHALL PAY THE GIRL’S FATHER FIFTY SHEKELS OF SILVER AND SHE SHALL BE HIS WIFE BECAUSE HE HAS VIOLATED HER.  HE CAN NEVER HAVE THE RIGHT TO DIVORCE HER.

THESE ARE NOT JEWISH LAWS FOR SEX CRIMES, THESE ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR ALL MANKIND.  AND ALL THESE SEX CRIMES THAT ARE COMMITTED ARE PUNISHABLE ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND READING THIS, YOU MIGHT THINK TO YOURSELF, WOW, THIS STUFF GOES ON EVERY DAY.  WE READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEWSPAPERS, ON THE INTERNET, IN BOOKS, AND MAGAZINES.  WE SEE IT IN THE MOVIES AND ON TV.

BUT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD THEY ARE WICKEDNESS.  SOME ARE PUNISHABLE BY STONING THE PERSON TO DEATH.

BUT TODAY, KILLING A PERSON BECAUSE OF CERTAIN OF THESE SEX CRIMES WOULD BE MURDER.

THUS THE MERCY OF GOD, AND THE GREAT IMPORTANCE FOR ATONEMENT AND LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAWS.  ALL OF THEM.  FOR MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, BE THEREFORE PERFECT EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT. 

MATTHEW 5.48

SEX CRIMES ARE SIN, AND IF THE GUILTY DO NOT RECEIVE GOD’S MERCY AND HAVE ATONEMENT FROM THE LORD OUR GOD, AND REFUSE TO LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, GOD HIMSELF WILL BRING UPON THEM THE DEATH PENALTY WHENEVER THAT MIGHT BE.

RELIGION IS ACTIVE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.  THIS WE ALL KNOW.  

BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW WHAT SIN IS?  THE ANSWER, VERY FEW.  BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT TAUGHT WHAT SIN IS.

GOD TEACHES THAT SIN IS DESPISING THE WORD OF THE LORD, AND BREAKING HIS COMMANDMENT WHICH COLLECTIVELY IS ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE NEW TESTAMENT DEFINES SIN AS TRANSGRESSING THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DEFINES SIN AS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE DIVINE LAW.  AND THAT IS CORRECT BECAUSE THE DIVINE LAW IS THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE THAT CONTAINS THE LAWS OF GOD.  AND THESE SEX CRIMES AND ALL GOD’S LAWS ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND DISOBEYING ANY ONE OF THEM IS SIN.

NUMBERS 15.30-31, 1 JOHN 3.4

ADD TO THAT, MANY BIBLE TEACHERS TEACH THE GREATEST HOAX IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, DONE AWAY WITH.  THAT IS TEACHING THAT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS ABOLISHED. 

DEUTERONOMY 32.21

THESE FALSE BIBLE TEACHERS DECEITFULLY TEACH THAT CHRIST FULFILLED THE LAW OF MOSES BY HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS.  THEREFORE THE FALSE BIBLE TEACHERS SAY, THE LAW OF MOSES HAS NO FURTHER VALIDITY.  THAT IS A HOAX.

BUT THE WORDS OF CHRIST PROVE THEM TO BE LIARS BECAUSE CHRIST SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, CALLED THE LAST SUPPER IN CHRISTIANITY; FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  

MATTHEW 26.28

CHRIST DID NOT SAY THAT HE SHED HIS BLOOD TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS THE TEACHING OF SATAN FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL.  CHRIST, THE MESSIAH YESHUA SAID, HE SHED HIS BLOOD FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

GENESIS 2.16-17, GENESIS 3.1-5

GOD TEACHES IN THE BIBLE WHAT WE MUST DO TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR OUR SINS.  GOD SAYS, FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  AND THAT IS GOD’S TEACHING FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. 

LEVITICUS 17.11

WHILE THERE WAS A TABERNACLE IN THE DESERT FROM THE TIME GOD DELIVERED THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM EGYPTIAN SLAVERY TO THE TIMES OF THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES, ATONEMENT WAS MADE BY THE SHED BLOOD OF ANIMAL SACRIFICES ON THE ALTAR.

BUT WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM ATONEMENT IS MADE BY THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  FOR GOD MADE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN.

THAT IS PROPHESIED BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH IN ISAIAH 53.10,

AND FULFILLED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

BUT WHAT IS SO VERY IMPORTANT IN GOD’S TEACHING OF ATONEMENT IS RARELY TAUGHT.  AND THAT IS, ONCE YOU RECEIVE ATONEMENT THROUGH YOUR FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA BY HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO ALL GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND SINCE EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS LAW, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  

THAT IS ATONEMENT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

THE BIBLE STANDS FOREVER ON GOD’S TEACHINGS AND LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE VERY FOUNDATION OF THE BIBLE.  AND THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT STANDS FOREVER THAT NEVER ENDS NOR DOES HIS WORD EVER CHANGE.

PSALM 105.8-10, ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS IN AGREEMENT WITH EVERY LAW AND TEACHING THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

THEREFORE THE LAW OF MOSES AND MESSIAH YESHUA TEACH THAT ALL MANKIND MUST LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.  WE ARE TO LIVE OUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  THAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD, THE GOSPEL, AND SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

SIN IS BREAKING ANY WORD, LAW, OR TEACHING OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS JEHOVAH.

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

LISTEN TO THIS.  THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW OF MOSES. 

THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES THAT SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW OF MOSES. 

AND THE DOCTRINE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT SPOKEN BY THE MESSIAH YESHUA, IS, GO AND SIN NO MORE.  MEANING, GO AND LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT WAY YOU WILL NOT SIN.

JOHN 5.14, JOHN 8.10-11, 1 JOHN 3.4, 1 JOHN 1.9

PAUL TEACHES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT; BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, AND DEATH BY SIN, AND SO DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED.

BY ONE MAN ADAM WHO DISOBEYED GOD, SIN ENTERED THE WORLD, AND DEATH BY SIN. 

ROMANS 5.12

AGAIN, SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES. 

SO PAUL WRITES; WHAT SHALL WE SAY THEN?  SHALL WE CONTINUE TO SIN THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND? (SHALL WE CONTINUE TO BREAK THE LAW OF MOSES THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND?)  GOD FORBID.

SO PAUL CONTINUES HIS TEACHING; BEING BAPTIZED INTO MESSIAH’S DEATH, WE SHOULD ALSO WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE.

WALKING IN NEWNESS OF LIFE IS LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND HAVING FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  THEN YOU WILL BE IN THE LIKENESS OF MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION.  AND YOU ALSO WILL BE RESURRECTED INTO HEAVEN.

ROMANS 6.1-6

I FIND IT AMAZING THAT SO MANY PEOPLE WHO TEACH THE BIBLE HAVE SPENT YEARS AND YEARS IN BIBLE SCHOOLS, AND NEVER TELL ANYONE WHAT SIN IS.  DON’T YOU FIND THAT STRANGE?

THE BIBLE TEACHES US THAT SIN IS DESPISING THE WORD OF THE LORD, AND BREAKING GOD’S COMMANDMENT, HIS LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND GOD SAYS, BECAUSE THEY DESPISE THE WORD OF THE LORD AND HAVE BROKEN HIS COMMANDMENT, THAT SOUL SHALL UTTERLY BE CUT OFF.  HIS SIN SHALL BE UPON HIM.

BUT BECAUSE YOU NOW LIVE IN NEWNESS OF LIFE, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, YOU, LIKE MESSIAH YESHUA, WILL ALSO BE RESURRECTED INTO HEAVEN.

SO IN CONCLUSION, MESSIAH’S WONDERFUL COUNSEL TO YOU IS; BE THEREFORE PERFECT EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT.  MATTHEW 5.48

SO I LOOKED UP THE WORD PERFECT IN GREEK.  PERFECT COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD TELEIOS THAT MEANS COMPLETE, OF FULL AGE, AND PERFECT.

AND BEING PERFECT WITH THE LORD OUR GOD IS TO WALK IN HIS STATUTES, AND TO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.

THEREFORE TO BE PERFECT WITH THE LORD OUR GOD, YOU MUST WALK IN EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

1 KINGS 8.61, MATTHEW 26.28, JOHN 14.9

AND GOD IS PERFECT BECAUSE GOD LIVES HIS LIFE BY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THEREFORE UNTIL YOU DECIDE TO WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOU CONTINUE TO LIVE IN SIN.

Shalom,

GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES CONCERNING THE PROPERTY OF OTHERS, WOMEN WEARING MEN’S CLOTHING, AND MEN WEARING WOMEN’S CLOTHING, AND OTHER LAWS.

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 22.1-12.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES CONCERNING THE PROPERTY OF OTHERS, WOMEN WEARING MEN’S CLOTHING, AND MEN WEARING WOMEN’S CLOTHING, AND OTHER LAWS.

KEEP IN MIND THAT THE LAWS AND TEACHINGS WRITTEN IN GENESIS THROUGH DEUTERONOMY CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES ARE GOD’S LAWS, NOT THE LAWS OF MOSES.

FOR EXAMPLE, GENESIS 1.1 READS, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

GOD SPOKE THOSE WORDS TO MOSES FACE TO FACE AND GOD GAVE MOSES EVERY LAW AND TEACHING THAT IS WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT MOSES RECORDED AND IS NOW WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE IN THE BIBLE EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPOKE TO THEM FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD GAVE THE WORLD HIS BIBLE THAT TEACHES ALL HUMANITY TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

EXODUS 24.13-18, EXODUS 25.21-22, EXODUS 33.11, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ISAIAH 40.8, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE ORIGINAL WRITINGS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT FROM MATTHEW THROUGH REVELATION WERE WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE IN HEBREW, NOT GREEK.

MATTHEW IN HEBREW IS MAH’TEET’YAHOO, MARK IN HEBREW IS MARCOS, LUKE IS LUKAHS, JOHN IS YOHANAN, PAUL IS SHAUL OR SAUL, PETER IS SHIMON, JUDE IS JUDAH, JAMES IS YAHAKOV OR JACOB, AND HEBREWS WAS WRITTEN BY A JEWISH PERSON, PERHAPS SHAUL WHO IS SAUL, WHO IS ALSO CALLED PAUL.

HOWEVER THE JEWISH RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES DESPISE AND REJECT THE MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE NEW TESTAMENT WRITINGS WRITTEN BY THESE JEWISH MEN, AND REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE THEIR WORDS AS SACRED SCRIPTURE. 

IT IS PROPHETIC.  ISAIAH 53.3

SHAUL WHO IS PAUL WRITES, I SAY THEN, HAVE THEY STUMBLED (THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO REJECT MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE NEW TESTAMENT) THAT THEY SHOULD FALL?  GOD FORBID.  BUT RATHER THROUGH THEIR FALL SALVATION HAS COME TO THE GENTILES TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY.  ROMANS 11.11

HOWEVER MANY GENTILES HAVE PROVOKED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO ANGER RATHER THAN JEALOUSY BECAUSE OF THEIR TERRIBLE HISTORY TOWARD JEWISH PEOPLE.

SO IT WAS THE ANCIENT GREEKS WHO TRANSLATED THE NEW TESTAMENT FROM HEBREW TO GREEK.  AND FROM GREEK, THE NEW TESTAMENT PORTION OF THE BIBLE HAS BEEN TRANSLATED INTO MORE THAN 1,000 LANGUAGES ALONG WITH THE HEBREW TRANSLATION OF TNAKH THE OLD TESTAMENT.

WHEN LOOKING UP THE WORD PAGAN IN THE RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, YOU WILL FIND THIS DESCRIPTION:  PAGAN: ONE OF A PEOPLE OR COMMUNITY OBSERVING A POLYTHEISTIC RELIGION AS THE ANCIENT ROMANS AND GREEKS.

A POLYTHEISTIC RELIGION BELIEVES IN MORE THAN ONE GOD OR MANY GODS.

THE ANCIENT GREEK BIBLE TRANSLATORS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT DID NOT UNDERSTAND OR KNOW GOD AS DID THE JEWISH WRITERS OF THE BIBLE.  THEY DID NOT COMPREHEND THE ONENESS OF GOD WHEN READING THAT JESUS WHO IS GOD SPEAKS TO THE FATHER WHO IS GOD.  THEY DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT BOTH ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  THE GREEK TRANSLATORS SAW TWO DIFFERENT GODS IN THE FATHER AND JESUS.  AS ALSO IN OTHER SCRIPTURES WHERE IT IS WRITTEN OF TWO CALLED GOD.

BUT WRITERS OF THE BIBLE MUST KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA / JESUS IS THAT ONE GOD.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

GENESIS 19.24, PSALM 110.1, JOHN 17.1, ETC.

SO THE TRINITY WAS INVENTED.  THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS, ONE GOD, OR THREE DIFFERENT GODS, ONE GOD.  AND THAT IS MORE PAGANISM.

GOD IS A SPIRIT WHO FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  THUS THE GOD OF CREATION CAN BE IN MANY DIFFERENT PLACES AT THE SAME TIME IN HUMAN FORM.  AND GOD SPEAKS TO GOD.  THAT IS THE NATURE OF GOD.  GOD IS NOT A MAN.

GENESIS 1.2, GENESIS 2.7, GENESIS 17.1, GENESIS 18.1, GENESIS 19.24, EXODUS 24.9-10, DEUTERONOMY 4.35, 39, DEUTERONOMY 6.4, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, 1 SAMUEL 3.10, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 45.8, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 45.7, PSALM 110.1, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JEREMIAH 23.24, MARK 12.29, JOHN 4.24, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, JOHN 17.1

WHEN GOD SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, BELIEVE IT WHETHER YOU UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT.  JOHN 14.23

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO GOD, AS MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY SPEAKS TO THE FATHER WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FIRST THING TO DO IS BELIEVE GOD WHEN HE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND IN TIME GOD WILL GIVE YOU UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA / JESUS, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

AND NO ONE IS EQUAL WITH GOD.  THAT IS PAGAN TEACHING.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS NOT EQUAL WITH GOD.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.

GENESIS 18.14, MATTHEW 19.26, JOHN 5.18, PHILIPPIANS 2.6, ISAIAH 46.5

So with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 22.1-12

DEUTERONOMY 22.1-3  YOU SHALL NOT SEE YOUR BROTHER’S OX OR HIS SHEEP GO ASTRAY AND HIDE YOURSELF FROM THEM.  SURELY YOU SHALL RETURN THEM TO YOUR BROTHER.

AND IF YOUR BROTHER IS NOT NEAR TO YOU, OR IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM, THEN YOU SHALL BRING IT TO YOUR HOUSE, AND IT SHALL BE WITH YOU UNTIL YOUR BROTHER SEEKS AFTER IT, AND YOU SHALL RESTORE IT TO HIM.

AND SO SHALL YOU DO WITH HIS DONKEY, AND SO SHALL YOU DO WITH HIS CLOTHING, AND SO SHALL YOU DO WITH EVERYTHING THAT IS LOST OF YOUR BROTHER’S WHICH HE LOSES, AND YOU HAVE FOUND.  YOU SHALL NOT HIDE.

THESE ARE LAWS OF GOD THAT CONCERN THE PROPERTY OF OTHERS.  THEY BELONG TO SOMEONE ELSE AND MUST BE RETURNED TO THE OWNER AS YOU WOULD HAVE OTHERS DO FOR YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 22.4  YOU SHALL NOT SEE YOUR BROTHER’S DONKEY OR HIS OX FALL DOWN BY THE WAY AND HIDE FROM THEM, THAT IS, THE OWNER AND HIS ANIMAL.  SURELY YOU SHALL HELP HIM LIFT IT UP.

WHICH MAKES ME THINK OF WHAT MESSIAH SAYS; WHATSOEVER YOU WOULD WANT MEN TO DO TO YOU, DO SO EVEN TO THEM.

MATTHEW 7.12

DEUTERONOMY 22.5  A WOMAN MUST NOT PUT ON MAN’S CLOTHING, NOR SHALL A MAN WEAR WOMAN’S CLOTHING.  FOR ALL WHO DO THESE THINGS ARE AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

WHY IS CROSS DRESSING AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD?  BECAUSE GOD MADE MEN TO BE MEN, AND WOMEN TO BE WOMEN.

CROSS DRESSING IS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, AND AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LEVITICUS 18.22, LEVITICUS 20.13, ROMANS 1.18-32

ROMANS 1.28  THE WORD REPROBATE COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD MAH’AHS MEANING REJECTING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  THAT IS A REPROBATE, ONE WHO REJECTS THE WORD OF GOD AND DOES THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.  1 SAMUEL 15.22-26

1 SAMUEL 15.23 & 26  REJECTED COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD MAH’AHS MEANING REPROBATE.

DEUTERONOMY 22.6-7  IF IT HAPPENS TO BE A BIRD’S NEST BEFORE YOU IN THE WAY IN ANY TREE, OR ON THE GROUND WITH YOUNG ONES, OR EGGS, AND THE MOTHER IS SITTING UPON THE YOUNG, OR ON THE EGGS, YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE MOTHER WITH THE YOUNG,

BUT YOU SHALL ALWAYS LET THE MOTHER BIRD GO, BUT THE YOUNG TAKE FOR YOURSELF SO THAT IT WILL BE WELL WITH YOU AND YOU WILL PROLONG YOUR DAYS.

GOD TEACHES US TO RESPECT THE LIFE OF OTHER CREATURES.

DEUTERONOMY 22.8  WHEN YOU BUILD A NEW HOUSE, YOU SHALL MAKE A GUARD RAIL FOR YOUR ROOF SO THAT YOU DO NOT BRING BLOOD ON YOUR HOUSE IF SOMEONE FALLS FROM IT.

THE SAME APPLIES TO ANY DANGEROUS SITUATION SUCH AS A SWIMMING POOL OR TALL STAIRWAY.

DEUTERONOMY 22.9  YOU SHALL NOT SOW YOUR VINEYARD WITH DIFFERENT SEEDS LEST THE FRUIT OF THE SEED WHICH YOU HAVE SOWN, AND THE FRUIT OF YOUR VINEYARD IS DEFILED.

LET’S LOOK AT ISAIAH 5.1  NOW WILL I SING TO MY BELOVED A SONG OF MY BELOVED TOUCHING HIS VINEYARD.  MY BELOVED HAS A VINEYARD IN A VERY FRUITFUL HILL.

GOD’S VINEYARD IS THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  NOT THAT EVERYONE MUST BE JEWISH TO BE PART OF GOD’S VINEYARD, BUT EVERYONE MUST SERVE GOD, THE FARMER OF THE VINEYARD, BY LIVING THEIR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.  LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, AND GOD WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND YOU WILL BE FULLY PART OF GOD’S VINEYARD.

DEUTERONOMY 22.10  YOU SHALL NOT PLOW WITH AN OX AND A DONKEY TOGETHER.

ALSO THE CHILD OF GOD WHO SERVES GOD BY LIVING ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE CAN NOT PLOW WITH THOSE WHO DO NOT SERVE GOD.  THAT IS TO SAY, YOU CAN NOT HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH THOSE WHO DO NOT LIVE BY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LUKE 4.4, EPHESIANS 5.11

DEUTERONOMY 22.11  YOU SHALL NOT WEAR A GARMENT MIXED OF WOOL AND LINEN TOGETHER.

DEUTERONOMY 22.12  YOU SHALL MAKE FOR YOURSELVES TWISTED THREADS ON THE FOUR CORNERS OF YOUR GARMENT WITH WHICH YOU COVER YOURSELF.

THE LORD COMMANDS US TO WEAR TZITZIT OR FRINGES IN THE FOUR CORNERS OF OUR GARMENTS THAT WHEN WE LOOK UPON THEM WE WILL REMEMBER THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD, AND DO THEM.  NUMBERS 15.37-41

SO IN CONCLUSION, GOD COMMANDS YOU AND ME AND ALL MANKIND TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  AND KNOW, BELIEVE, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND THAT GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.

ON THE DAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY OF THE PASSOVER WEEK, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, AND HE BREATHED ON HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Shalom,

This evening at sundown is the beginning of Shavuot, also called The Feast of Weeks, and Pentecost.  Shavuot is a one day Festival of The LORD, and it falls fifty days from the Day after The Saturday Sabbath on Sunday of The Passover week.

Our teaching will be from The Words that GOD spoke to Moses about Shavuot / Pentecost that are recorded in Torah, The Law of Moses in Leviticus 23.15-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, ON THE DAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY OF THE PASSOVER WEEK, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, AND HE BREATHED ON HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

And with that said, let’s read Leviticus 23.15-22.

LEVITICUS 23.15-16  AND YOU SHALL NUMBER TO YOU FROM THE DAY AFTER THE SABBATH FROM THE DAY YOU BROUGHT IN THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING, SEVEN COMPLETE SABBATHS SHALL THEY BE,

TO THE DAY AFTER THE SEVENTH SABBATH YOU SHALL NUMBER FIFTY DAYS, AND YOU SHALL BRING A GRAIN OFFERING TO THE LORD.

I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING THAT WAS WAVED BY THE PRIEST BEFORE THE LORD IS PROPHETIC OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND PERHAPS THE RESURRECTION OF HIS HOLY ONES, ALSO CALLED SAINTS. 

LEVITICUS 23.4-6, 9-12

A SHEAF IS AN OMER, OR A BUNDLE, PERHAPS OF GRAIN THAT WAS WAVED BY THE PRIEST BEFORE THE LORD.

THE HOLY ONES OF GOD ALSO CALLED SAINTS, OR K’DOE’SHIM IN HEBREW, ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

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

LET’S SET A FOUNDATION FOR THIS TEACHING.  MESSIAH YESHUA HELD HIS PASSOVER SEDER THAT CHRISTIANITY CALLS THE LAST SUPPER, ON WEDNESDAY EVENING, THE EVENING OF PASSOVER.  AND AFTER HIS SEDER, THE MESSIAH AND HIS DISCIPLES WENT TO A PLACE CALLED GETHSEMONE.  AND THERE IN GETHSEMONE HE WAS TAKEN BY A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH SWORDS AND CLUBS FROM THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND ELDERS OF THE PEOPLE.

AND A BOGUS TRIAL WAS HELD.  AND ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, THURSDAY, THE FIRST DAY OF PASSOVER, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES, AND HE WAS KILLED ON A ROMAN STAKE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD TO BE CUT OFF OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF HIS PEOPLE WAS HE STRICKEN.  FOR GOD MADE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN.  AND THE SCRIPTURES WERE FULFILLED.

MESSIAH WAS THEN BURIED IN A TOMB THE SAME DAY ON THURSDAY.  HE WAS DEAD AND IN THE TOMB FOR THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS; THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY.  AND SATURDAY AFTER SUNDOWN, THE BEGINNING OF SUNDAY, ACCORDING TO THE LORD GOD, YESHUA THE MESSIAH ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY, THE DAY THAT THE PRIEST WAVED THE WAVE OFFERING AT THE TEMPLE THAT STARTED THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST.

AND LATE IN THE DAY, THE SAME DAY OF HIS RESURRECTION, WHEN HIS DISCIPLES WERE GATHERED TOGETHER, THE DOORS WERE SHUT, MESSIAH STOOD IN THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SAID TO THEM, PEACE BE UNTO YOU.  AND HE SHOWED THEM HIS HANDS AND HIS SIDE, AND HE SAID TO THEM, AS MY FATHER HAS SENT ME, EVEN SO I SEND YOU.  AND WHEN HE SAID THIS, HE BREATHED ON THEM, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE MESSIAH, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, GOD ALMIGHTY, YEHOVAH, HA SHEM ELOHIM.

MARK 16.9, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.1-12, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

JOHN 20.1-22, VERSE 19  MOST BIBLES READ, THE SAME DAY AT EVENING, OR SUNDAY EVENING BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK WHEN THE DOORS WERE SHUT WHERE THE DISCIPLES WERE ASSEMBLED FOR FEAR OF THE JEWS, CAME YESHUA AND STOOD IN THE MIDST, AND SAID TO THEM, PEACE BE UNTO YOU.

SO I THOUGHT THAT THE SAME DAY AT EVENING BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK COULD NOT BE CORRECT BECAUSE GOD’S DAY STARTS AT SUNDOWN.  SO I LOOKED UP THE WORD EVENING IN GREEK, AND THE GREEK WORD FOR EVENING IS OPSIOS THAT MEANS LATE AFTERNOON.  GENESIS 1.5

GENESIS 1.5  EVENING IN HEBREW IS EH’REV MEANING SUNDOWN AND NIGHT.  MORNING IN HEBREW IS VO’KEHR MEANING THE BREAK OF DAY AND DAY.

SO MESSIAH BREATHED ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT THE SAME DAY HE WAS RESURRECTED LATE IN THE AFTERNOON ON SUNDAY.  IF IT WAS IN THE EVENING IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE START OF MONDAY.

IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT.  YESHUA WAS RAISED ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY DURING THE DAYS OF PASSOVER.  AND HE ALSO GAVE HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE DAY HE WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD, ON SUNDAY.

MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION FULFILLS SCRIPTURE BECAUSE MESSIAH ROSE FROM THE DEAD ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY THAT THE PRIEST WAVED THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING.  AND ON THE SAME DAY, MESSIAH BREATHED ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT.

LEVITICUS 23.17  PART OF GOD’S COMMAND FOR SHAVUOT / PENTECOST CALLS FOR TWO WAVE LOAVES OF BREAD THAT ARE ALSO WAVED.  THEY ARE THE FIRST FRUITS UNTO THE LORD.

THE FIRST FRUITS ARE THE FIRST AND BEST OF THE CROP.

AND MESSIAH AND HIS HOLY ONES, THE SAINTS ARE THE FIRST FRUITS OF ALL HE CREATED.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.20, JAMES 1.18, REVELATION 14.1-4 

THE FIRST FRUITS ARE THE FIRST AND THE BEST OF ALL GOD CREATED.

LEVITICUS 23.18-19  WHEN THE TEMPLE IS STANDING IN JERUSALEM, ANIMAL SACRIFICES WERE OFFERED, AND WILL BE OFFERED TO THE LORD FOR BURNT OFFERINGS, FOR SIN OFFERINGS, AND FOR PEACE OFFERINGS.

MULTITUDES TODAY HAVE IT WRONG.  SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT THAT WHEN THEY BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO DO WHAT GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE BECAUSE THEY ARE TAUGHT THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

THE LAW OF MOSES JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  THEY ARE TOLD THAT ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AND THEY HAVE A FIFTY YARD LINE SEAT IN HEAVEN.

TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED IS TEACHING DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD. 

AND TEACHING DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD DOES NOT GET ANYONE INTO HEAVEN.

BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS (THE LAW OF MOSES) THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY.

REVELATION 22.14 THE KING JAMES VERSION

MESSIAH YESHUA GAVE HIS LIFE FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.  THAT IS, MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, TO BE OUR ATONEMENT. 

THAT’S WHAT HE SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, THE LAST SUPPER.  “FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.”

JESUS NEVER SAID ANYWHERE, EVER THAT HE CAME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS ONE BOLD LIE.  JESUS DID NOT COME TO TEACH DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.  JESUS IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CAME TO GIVE HIS LIFE FOR US AS A HUMAN BEING TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS THAT WE MAY HAVE LIFE.

THEN AFTER YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEN YOU ARE HOLY TO THE LORD.  AND GOD WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD, SUCCESSFUL, AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

MATTHEW 26.28, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

A GOOD PERSONAL STUDY FOR EVERYONE IS THIS.  DO A SEARCH FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION AND DISCOVER THE REASON WHY GOD PUNISHES PEOPLE, SOMETIMES TO DEATH. 

AND YOU WILL FIND OUT THAT GOD PUNISHES PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DISOBEY GOD.  THEY DISOBEY THE WORDS THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD IS WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT IN MANY BIBLE SETTINGS WHEN YOU ARE TAUGHT THAT THE LAW OF MOSES NEED NOT BE OBEYED.  THAT IS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, AND AS PAUL WRITES, YOU HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN.

AND THERE ARE TIMES THAT GOD WILL TEST YOU TO KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART WHETHER YOU WILL OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS, OR NOT.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.1-2, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 6.1-2, 1 JOHN 3.4, ROMANS 8.6-7, JOHN 5.14, JOHN 8.10, 11, ACTS 5.32, 1 PETER 1.1-2, DEUTERONOMY 8.2

ROMANS 6.1-2  PAUL TEACHES, SHALL WE CONTINUE TO SIN?  THAT IS, SHALL YOU CONTINUE TO BREAK THE LAW OF MOSES?  GOD FORBID.  1 JOHN 3.4

JOHN 5.14 AND JOHN 8.11  MESSIAH TEACHES YOU TO SIN NO MORE.  THAT IS TO SAY THAT MESSIAH TEACHES YOU TO NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT RATHER LIVE YOUR LIFE BY THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4 

THEREFORE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN VAIN IF THEY TRANSGRESS THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

LEVITICUS 23.20  AGAIN THE PRIEST WAVED PORTIONS FROM THE SACRIFICES WITH THE BREAD OF THE FIRST FRUITS FOR A WAVE OFFERING BEFORE THE LORD THAT ARE HOLY TO THE LORD FOR THE PRIEST. 

AGAIN, I BELIEVE THAT THE WAVE OFFERING WAS PROPHETIC FOR MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION AND THE RESURRECTION OF HIS HOLY ONES.

LEVITICUS 23.21  SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A HOLY CONVOCATION.  A TIME SET APART FOR THE LORD TO ATTEND A SERVICE THAT HONORS THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE THIS HOLY DAY THAT IS A FEAST OF THE LORD. 

SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A SABBATH.  NO WORK OF ANY KIND IS TO BE DONE ON THAT DAY.  IT IS A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT THE GENERATIONS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND THAT IS FOREVER.

ISAIAH 66.22, ZECHARIAH 12.10, ZECHARIAH 13.6

ZECHARIAH 13.6  MY FRIENDS IN HEBREW IS M’AH’HAH’VY, MEANING, THOSE WHO LOVE ME.

LEVITICUS 23.22  AND WHEN HARVESTING YOUR HARVEST, LEAVE SOME FOR THE POOR AND FOR THE STRANGER.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE LORD GOD SAYS.  AND YES, THE LORD TEACHES US KINDNESS ALSO.

SO IN CONCLUSION, SHAVUOT IS A TIME TO REMEMBER THE RESURRECTION OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND MESSIAH BREATHING ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THE RESURRECTION OF MESSIAH IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE, HIS HOLY ONES WHO LIVE OUR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR OUR ATONEMENT, WILL ALSO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, OR WHILE WE ARE ALIVE AT MESSIAH’S RETURN TO BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER IN THE MILLENNIUM IN ISRAEL AND IN ETERNITY IN HEAVEN. 

AND IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD GIVES THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO OBEY HIM.

BUT MOST IMPORTANT ABOUT SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  TO KNOW OF GOD’S GRACE AND KINDNESS, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU.  AND REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN SATURDAY TO KEEP IT HOLY.  IT IS THE SABBATH OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.  IN IT YOU SHALL NOT DO ANY WORK.

AND SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A REMINDER THAT EVERYONE NEEDS ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND OUR ATONEMENT IS IN MESSIAH YESHUA, FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE, AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

AND REMEMBER THE LORD YOUR GOD IN EVERYTHING YOU DO, FOR HE IS GOD.  THERE ARE NO OTHERS.

THE JOY OF OBEYING THE LORD YOUR GOD

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 21.15-23.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE JOY OF OBEYING THE LORD YOUR GOD.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 21.15-23.

DEUTERONOMY 21.15-17  IF A MAN HAS TWO WIVES, THE ONE LOVED, AND THE OTHER UNLOVED, AND THEY HAVE BORNE HIM CHILDREN, BOTH THE LOVED WIFE AND THE UNLOVED WIFE, AND IF THE FIRSTBORN SON IS HERS THAT WAS UNLOVED,

THEN IT SHALL BE IN THE DAY THAT HE CAUSES HIS CHILDREN TO INHERIT THAT WHICH HE HAS, HE MAY NOT MAKE THE FIRSTBORN SON OF THE BELOVED BEFORE THE SON OF THE UNLOVED WHO IS THE FIRSTBORN.

BUT HE SHALL REGARD THE SON OF THE UNLOVED FOR THE FIRSTBORN BY GIVING HIM A DOUBLE PORTION OF ALL THAT HE HAS, FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING OF HIS STRENGTH.  THE RIGHT OF THE FIRSTBORN IS HIS.

SOME BIBLES READ, THE HATED WIFE, AND OTHERS READ, THE UNLOVED WIFE.  I CHOSE FROM THE HEBREW WORDS SEH’NU’AH AND SEH’NEE’AH FOR HATED AND UNLOVED, THE WORD UNLOVED.

FIRST OF ALL, THIS LAW CONCERNS A MAN HAVING TWO WIVES.  SO I HAD TO THINK AWHILE IF THAT IS LAWFUL ACCORDING TO TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THE ANSWER IS NO.

GENESIS 2.24  THE BIBLE SAYS, THEREFORE SHALL A MAN LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE, NOT HIS WIVES, AND THEY SHALL BE ONE FLESH.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD PUT THIS LAW IN PLACE TO PROTECT WOMEN WHO WERE MARRIED TO MEN WHO HAD MORE THAN ONE WIFE.

AS YOU KNOW, SOME MEN IN THE BIBLE HAD MORE THAN ONE WIFE.  A FELLOW BY THE NAME OF LAMECH HAD TWO WIVES, ESAU HAD TWO WIVES.  AND JACOB HAD FOUR WIVES, GIDEON HAD MANY WIVES, EVEN SEVENTY SONS.  THE PROPHET SAMUEL’S FATHER HAD TWO WIVES, DAVID HAD MORE THAN ONE WIFE, AND THEN OF COURSE THERE IS SOLOMON WHO HAD SEVEN HUNDRED WIVES AND PRINCESSES, AND THREE HUNDRED CONCUBINES.

GENESIS 4.19, GENESIS 26.34, JUDGES 8.30, 1 SAMUEL 1.1-2, 2 SAMUEL 3.2-5, 1 KINGS 11.1-3.

THIS IS A SUBJECT THAT I AM NOT GOING TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF TIME ON, BUT THE BIBLE DOES SAY, BE SUBJECT TO THE HIGHER POWERS, AND THAT IS THE GOVERNMENT. AND IN THE UNITED STATES IT IS POLYGAMY AND A CRIME TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE WIFE.  ROMANS 13.1-6

DEUTERONOMY 21.18-21  IF A MAN HAS A STUBBORN AND REBELLIOUS SON WHO WILL NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF HIS FATHER, OR THE VOICE OF HIS MOTHER, AND WHEN THEY HAVE DISCIPLINED HIM, HE WILL NOT OBEY THEM.

THEN HIS FATHER AND HIS MOTHER SHALL TAKE HOLD OF HIM AND BRING HIM TO THE ELDERS OF HIS CITY, AND TO THE GATE OF HIS PLACE,

AND THEY SHALL SAY TO THE ELDERS OF HIS CITY, THIS IS OUR SON, AND HE IS STUBBORN AND REBELLIOUS.  HE WILL NOT OBEY US, AND HE IS A GLUTTON AND A DRUNK.

AND ALL THE MEN OF HIS CITY SHALL STONE HIM WITH STONES THAT HE DIES.  SO SHALL YOU PUT EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU, AND ALL ISRAEL SHALL HEAR AND FEAR.

AND I THOUGHT, THIS IS SEVERE PUNISHMENT.  HOWEVER THIS IS A RULING OF GOD.  BUT WHY?

I HAVE A COUPLE OF THOUGHTS.  THIS KID COULD GROW UP TO BE A MONSTER OF A HUMAN BEING.  THEREFORE THE LORD SAYS, SO SHALL YOU PUT EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU, AND ALL ISRAEL SHALL HEAR AND FEAR.

ALSO, THE LORD SAYS, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER AS THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS COMMANDED YOU, THAT YOUR DAYS MAY BE PROLONGED, AND THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH YOU IN THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU.

CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES FOR THE SON OR DAUGHTER WHO WILL NOT OBEY HIS FATHER OR HIS MOTHER ACCORDING TO THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 5.16, EXODUS 20.12

TODAY, IF A STUBBORN AND REBELLIOUS SON WHO IS A GLUTTON AND A DRUNK IS STONED TO DEATH BECAUSE HE DID NOT OBEY HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, THOSE THROWING THE STONES WOULD BE HAULED OFF TO JAIL.  THAT BEING THE LAW OF THE LAND.

GOD’S LAWS STAND FOREVER, AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IS LAW THAT NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.  AND GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY.

ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

FROM WHAT I READ IN THE BIBLE, JUST ABOUT EVERY PUNISHMENT THAT GOD HANDS OUT IS BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

MESSIAH YESHUA TEACHES FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES TO ALL MANKIND THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

THE BIBLE CONDEMNS DISOBEDIENCE TO THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, EPHESIANS 2.2, EPHESIANS 5.6, COLOSSIANS 3.6, 1 TIMOTHY 1.9, 2 TIMOTHY 3.1-2, 1 PETER 2.7-8

WE HAVE PEOPLE TEACHING US THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.  THAT IS TEACHING DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.  BECAUSE THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GOD OF THE SPIRITS OF ALL FLESH.  NO ONE CAN ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND NO ONE CAN ABOLISH ONE WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE LIE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED IS THE SAME LIE THAT THE SNAKE SAID TO EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, YOU WILL SURELY NOT DIE IF YOU DISOBEY GOD.  ADAM AND EVE DIED BECAUSE THEY DISOBEYED GOD.  AND GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE TO LIVE FOREVER.

GENESIS 3.4,22, GENESIS 5.5, NUMBERS 16.22

GOD COMMANDS THE CHILDREN TO OBEY THEIR PARENTS.  AND GOD COMMANDS EVERYONE TO OBEY HIM, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

YES, WHEN YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS.  YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN.  BUT THEN GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE A HOLY AND GODLY LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS HOLINESS AND GODLINESS, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT IS SALVATION.

GOD TEACHES THAT REPENTANCE IS TURNING FROM ALL YOUR SINS.  SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES. AND TURNING TO GOD BY OBEYING ALL HIS STATUTES, THE LAW OF MOSES, DOING THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT.

BUT GOD SAYS, IF THE PERSON RETURNS TO HIS SIN AS THE UNGODLY WHO TRANSGRESS THE LAW OF MOSES, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL BE FORGOTTEN IN HIS SIN THAT HE HAS SINNED.  THAT IS A VERY SERIOUS TEACHING.

EZEKIEL 18.19-24, 1 JOHN 3.4

GOD’S LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, ARE NOT DIFFICULT. 

1 JOHN 5.3, 1 JOHN 1.9

DEUTERONOMY 21.22-23  AND IF A MAN HAS COMMITTED A SIN WORTHY OF DEATH, AND HE IS PUT TO DEATH, AND YOU HANG HIM ON A TREE,

HIS BODY SHALL NOT REMAIN ALL NIGHT UPON THE TREE, BUT SURELY YOU SHALL BURY HIM THE SAME DAY, FOR IT IS A REPROACH TO GOD THAT THE LAND SHOULD NOT BE DEFILED WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE.

THE TITLE OF THIS MESSAGE IS, THE JOY OF OBEYING THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND I THOUGHT THAT AFTER TEACHING ABOUT THE SIN OF DISOBEYING GOD, SUCH AS THE REBELLIOUS AND STUBBORN SON WHO DISOBEYS HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND IS STONED TO DEATH, AND THE MAN WHO COMMITS A SIN WORTHY OF DEATH, AND IS HUNG ON A TREE, AND OVERALL, THE BIBLE CONDEMNS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, PERHAPS A GOOD WAY TO CLOSE THIS MESSAGE IS FROM THE WORDS OF MESSIAH YESHUA TO THOSE WHO SIN, AND TO THOSE WHO ARE RIGHTEOUS.

MATTHEW 13.36-43

MESSIAH TOLD THIS PARABLE, SAYING, THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A MAN WHO SOWED GOOD SEED IN HIS FIELD.  BUT WHILE MEN SLEPT, HIS ENEMY CAME AND SOWED TARES AMONG THE WHEAT, AND WENT HIS WAY.

BUT WHEN THE BLADE SPRUNG UP AND BROUGHT FORTH FRUIT, THEN THE TARES APPEARED ALSO.

THE TARES ARE FALSE GRAIN, NOXIOUS WEEDS.

SO THE SERVANTS OF THE HOMEOWNER CAME AND SAID TO HIM, SIR, DID YOU NOT SOW GOOD SEED IN YOUR FIELD?  FROM WHERE DID THE TARES COME FROM?  AND HE SAID TO THEM, AN ENEMY HAS DONE THIS.  AND THE SERVANTS SAID TO HIM, SHALL WE GO AND GATHER UP THE TARES?  BUT HE SAID, NO, LEST WHILE YOU GATHER UP THE TARES, YOU ROOT UP ALSO THE WHEAT WITH THEM.  LET THEM BOTH GROW TOGETHER UNTIL THE HARVEST, AND IN THE TIME OF HARVEST I WILL SAY TO THE REAPERS, FIRST GATHER THE TARES TOGETHER AND BIND THEM IN BUNDLES TO BURN THEM, BUT GATHER THE WHEAT INTO MY BARN.

AND MESSIAH’S DISCIPLES ASKED HIM TO EXPLAIN THE PARABLE.

AND MESSIAH SAID TO THEM, HE WHO SOWS THE GOOD SEED IS THE SON OF MAN.  THE SON OF MAN IS MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY.  THE FIELD IS THE WORLD.  THE GOOD SEED ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM, BUT THE TARES ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE WICKED ONE.  THE ENEMY THAT SOWED THE TARES IS THE DEVIL.  THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD, AND THE REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS.

AS THE TARES ARE GATHERED AND BURNED IN THE FIRE, SO SHALL IT BE IN THE END OF THIS WORLD.  THE SON OF MAN SHALL SEND FORTH HIS ANGELS AND THEY WILL GATHER OUT OF HIS KINGDOM ALL THINGS THAT OFFEND, AND THEM WHICH DO INIQUITY.  THOSE WHO OFFEND AND DO INIQUITY ARE PEOPLE WHO SIN.  SIN IS TRANSGRESSING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THE SON OF MAN WILL CAST THEM INTO A FURNACE OF FIRE.  THERE SHALL BE WAILING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.

THEN SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN IN THE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER.  WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR, MESSIAH SAID, LET HIM HEAR.

RIGHTEOUS IS A WORD THAT MEANS BEING RIGHT WITH GOD, BEING LAWFUL, AND HOLY.  AND THE ONLY WAY TO BE RIGHT WITH GOD, AND LAWFUL, AND HOLY IS NOT LIVING IN SIN BY BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT RATHER LIVING YOUR LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND YOU WILL EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF OBEYING THE LORD YOUR GOD.

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

AND MESSIAH SAYS, THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN IN THE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER.  THE KINGDOM OF OUR FATHER IS NOT ONLY HEAVEN, BUT ALSO THE EARTH.  MEANING, A LOT OF WONDERFUL BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ON THIS EARTH WHEN YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS; WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD IN HEAVEN WHERE THERE WILL BE NO TEARS, OR DEATH, NOR SORROW, OR CRYING, OR PAIN, BUT EVERLASTING JOY AND GLADNESS.  FOR THE FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.

THAT IS THE JOY OF OBEYING THE LORD YOUR GOD.

WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR.

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses from Deuteronomy 21.10-14.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 21.10-14.

WHEN YOU GO FORTH TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS DELIVERED THEM INTO YOUR HANDS, AND YOU HAVE TAKEN THEM CAPTIVE,

AND YOU SEE AMONG THE CAPTIVES A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, AND YOU DESIRE HER, AND YOU TAKE HER TO BE YOUR WIFE,

THEN YOU SHALL BRING HER HOME TO YOUR HOUSE, AND SHE SHALL SHAVE HER HEAD, AND TRIM HER NAILS,

AND SHE SHALL PUT OFF THE CLOTHING OF HER CAPTIVITY, AND SHE SHALL LIVE IN YOUR HOUSE AND GRIEVE FOR HER FATHER AND HER MOTHER FOR A MONTH OF DAYS.  AND AFTER THAT YOU SHALL GO INTO HER AND BE HER HUSBAND AND SHE SHALL BE YOUR WIFE.

AND IT SHALL BE IF YOU HAVE NO DELIGHT IN HER, THEN YOU SHALL LET HER GO WHEREVER SHE WISHES.  BUT YOU SHALL NOT SELL HER AT ALL FOR MONEY, NOR SHALL YOU TREAT HER LIKE A SLAVE, BECAUSE YOU HAVE HUMBLED HER.

THESE ARE LAWS OF WAR ESTABLISHED BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THAT APPLIED TO THE WAR WITH CANAAN, AND WARS OUTSIDE OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO DESTROY AND POSSESS CANAAN BECAUSE THE INIQUITY OF THE CANAANITES WAS FULL, AND GOD PROMISED TO GIVE CANAAN, THE PROMISED LAND, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GENESIS 15.16, GENESIS 17.8

OTHER WARS CONCERN NATIONS THAT ATTACK ISRAEL, AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE DEFEND THEMSELVES, AND DEFEAT THE ENEMY, AND ADVANCE INTO THE ENEMIES’ COUNTRY AND TAKE CAPTIVES.

THE ONLY NATION THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ATTACKED WITHOUT PROVOCATION IS THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO POSSESS TO BECOME THEIR EVERLASTING HOMELAND, ERETZ YISRAEL, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE NOT A CONQUERING PEOPLE.  THEY NEVER HAVE BEEN, NOR EVER WILL BE.  THE JEWISH PEOPLE SEEK TO LIVE IN PEACE BUT THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE NATIONS LOOK TO DESTROY HER AND OCCUPY HER GOD-GIVEN LAND.  BUT EVERLASTING PEACE WILL COME TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL WHEN THE MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND DESTROYS ALL THAT HATE ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  ZECHARIAH 14.12

ISRAEL HAS BEEN OCCUPIED BY THE ASSYRIANS, CURRENT DAY N. IRAQ AND S.E. TURKEY, IN 722 B.C.E./B.C., THE BABYLONIANS, CURRENT DAY IRAQ IN 586 B.C.E./B.C., THE PERSIANS, TODAY’S IRAN IN 538 B.C.E./B.C., THE GREEKS IN 332 B.C.E./B.C., THE ROMANS IN 37 B.C.E./B.C., THE BYZANTINES, IN 324 C.E./A.D., THE EASTERN ROMAN EMPIRE THAT THE ROMAN EMPEROR CONSTANTINE DEDICATED A NEW ROME, THE ISLAMIC ARABS IN 638 C.E./A.D., THE CRUSADERS, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC EUROPEANS FROM 1099 TO 1260 C.E./A.D., THE MUSLIM MAMLUKS IN 1260 C.E./A.D., THE OTTOMAN TURKS IN 1517 C.E./A.D., AND THE BRITISH IN 1917 TO THE TIME THE JEWS KICKED THEM OUT AND DECLARED THE LAND OF ISRAEL THEIR SOVEREIGN NATION IN 1948.

AND STILL ISRAEL BATTLES HER ENEMIES.  AND ISRAEL WILL DEFEAT HER ENEMIES.  BUT WARS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND KILLS ALL THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  DANIEL 9.26

SO GOD SAYS TO ISRAEL, IF A MAN SEES A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN FROM THE CAPTIVES OF WAR, AND DESIRES TO TAKE HER TO BE HIS WIFE, THEN TAKE HER ACCORDING TO MY LAWS, SAITH THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LET’S TALK ABOUT GOD’S LAWS.

YESHUA THE MESSIAH, WHOM CHRISTIANITY CALLS JESUS CHRIST, WAS ASKED, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL?

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

MARK 12.29

THESE WORDS THAT MESSIAH SPOKE COME FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN DEUTERONOMY 6.4

LET’S EXPLAIN WHAT THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT MEANS.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR HEAR, AS IN, HEAR O ISRAEL, IS SHEMA.  SHEMA MEANS, HEAR AND OBEY.  GOD TEACHES ALL MANKIND TO HEAR AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. 

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT TEACHES THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

IF WHAT YOU HEAR OR READ DOES NOT AGREE WITH GOD’S COMMANDMENT, OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, THEN WHAT YOU ARE HEARING OR READING IS NOT TRUTH.

GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT GOD, AND WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF ALL MANKIND.  AND THAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED WHEN JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

EVERY WRITER OF THE BIBLE IS JEWISH EXCEPT PERHAPS LUKE.  MATTHEW IS MAHTEETYAHU, MARK IS MARCOS, LUKE IS LUKAS, JOHN IS YOKHANAN, PAUL IS SHAUL OR SAUL, JAMES IS YA’AKOV, OR JACOB, PETER IS SHIMONE, AND JUDE IS YEHUDAH, OR JUDAH.  ALL ARE JEWISH AS IS MESSIAH YESHUA AND HIS DISCIPLES AND APOSTLES WHO WERE JEWISH. 

AND GOD IS JEWISH.

EXODUS 4.22 MATTHEW 1.1-2, ISAIAH 43.10-11, ROMANS 2.13

GOD IS THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE GENTILES.  AND EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING TO HEAR AND OBEY.  AND GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR EVERYBODY.  AND THAT ONE LAW IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN IT FOR ALL MANKIND TO LIVE BY.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  AND THE LAW OF MOSES DOES NOT CONTAIN THE LAWS OF MOSES.  RATHER THE LAW OF MOSES CONTAINS THE LAWS COMMANDED BY GOD FOR ALL MANKIND.

THE LAW OF MOSES TEACHES GOD’S SABBATH FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN ON SATURDAY, AND THE OTHER SABBATHS OF GOD.  GOD’S LAW OF MOSES ALSO TEACHES THE FESTIVALS OF THE LORD SUCH AS PASSOVER AND TABERNACLES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23.  AND THE LAW OF MOSES TEACHES ATONEMENT, AND GOD’S FOOD LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 11 AND DEUTERONOMY 14,  AND OTHER LAWS OF GOD THAT WHEN OBEYED ALONG WITH YOUR FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS, YOU LIVE A HOLY LIFE IN THE LORD YOUR GOD.  AND THAT RESULTS IN A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

SO GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH, JESUS CHRIST SAYS TO ALL MANKIND, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

WHY HEAR O ISRAEL?  BECAUSE GOD REQUIRES ALL ISRAEL, WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND AS GOD’S WITNESSES, THE JEWISH PEOPLE TELL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE THEY WROTE THAT GOD REQUIRES EVERY HUMAN BEING TO OBEY HIM.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT WITH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS SALVATION. 

AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

MATTHEW 4.4, ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

WHEN MESSIAH WAS ASKED, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL, HE SAID, THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL IS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.

MESSIAH DID NOT SAY, THE LORD IS THREE.  MESSIAH SAID, THE LORD IS ONE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  NOT ONE GOD IN THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS, OR ONE GOD IN THREE DIFFERENT gods.  THE TRINITY TEACHES THAT THE FATHER IS A GOD, THAT JESUS IS ANOTHER GOD DISTINCT IN NATURE AND DIFFERENT THAN THE FATHER.  AND THE SPIRIT IS ANOTHER GOD DISTINCT IN NATURE AND DIFFERENT FROM BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON. 

THE TRINITY TEACHES THREE DIFFERENT gods AND THAT IS IDOLATRY.

HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

IT IS WRITTEN IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, OUT OF THE HOUSE OF SLAVERY.  YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER gods BEFORE ME. 

EXODUS 20.1-3, DEUTERONOMY 5.6-7

GENESIS 1.1 READS, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IN GENESIS 1.1 IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

32 TIMES IN GENESIS CHAPTER 1, THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  IN FACT, THE HEBREW WORD ELOHIM, MEANING GODS, IS WRITTEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SOME 3,000 TIMES.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

SO WHY DOES GOD REFER TO HIMSELF AS ELOHIM, GODS?

BECAUSE GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER,, THE LORD IN HEAVEN, HE IS MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF MAN, THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE, AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND OFTEN THE ANGEL OF THE LORD AND THE ANGEL OF GOD.  WHEN MELCHIZEDEK MET WITH ABRAHAM, THAT WAS GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.  AND WHEN GOD ALMIGHTY APPEARED TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, MOSES, AND OTHERS, THAT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA.

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD. 

THUS GOD’S NAME, AND A VERY IMPORTANT NAME IS ELOHIM.

WHEN MESSIAH YESHUA SPOKE WITH GOD THE FATHER IN HEAVEN, GOD SPEAKS TO GOD. 

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

JOHN 17.1, MARK 16.19, PSALM 110.1, GENESIS 1.26, GENESIS 3.22

WHEREVER YOU SEE GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, THAT IS MESSIAH YESHUA.

JOHN 1.1-5, GENESIS 17.1, GENESIS 18.1, GENESIS 19.24, EXODUS 24.10, EXODUS 33.11, 17-23

EXODUS 33.17-23  GOD IS SPIRIT.  BUT WHEN GOD APPEARS IN HUMAN FORM, THE FACE OF GOD IS SEEN.  IN THIS WRITING OF EXODUS 33.23, MOSES SAW THE BACK OF GOD’S SPIRIT, BUT MAN CANNOT SEE THE FACE OF GOD’S SPIRIT AND LIVE.

JEREMIAH 23.24, JOHN 4.24

I BELIEVE THAT WILL CHANGE WHEN WE, THE FAMILY OF GOD ARE LIKE HIM IN HIS LIKENESS IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL, AND IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.

PSALM 17.15, 1 JOHN 3.2 

WHAT IS SIN?  SIN IS DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  DISOBEYING ANY LAW WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IS SIN.

1 JOHN 3.4-6, PSALM 105.8-10, REVELATION 14.12-13, ETC.

HOW DO WE LIVE OUR LIFE DEAD TO SIN?  BY OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES. 

ROMANS 6.1-6, 1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4

WHY WILL GOD DESTROY THE WORLD?  BECAUSE THE WORLD DISOBEYS THE LAW OF MOSES. 

ISAIAH 24.4-6, 1 JOHN 3.4

AND GOD’S LAWS ARE NOT DIFFICULT. 

1 JOHN 5.3, JOHN 1.9

WHEN YOU HAVE DOUBT READING A SCRIPTURE, OR HEARING A BIBLE TEACHER, ALWAYS REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL; HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. 

OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. 

EVERY WORD IN THE BIBLE MUST AGREE WITH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE ONLY WAY TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TO OBEY GOD.  EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  ACTS 5.32

SO IN CONCLUSION, THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL IS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.  MEANING, HEAR AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

THAT IS THE GOSPEL, THE MYSTERY OF GOD, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from The Law of Moses in Deuteronomy 21.1-9.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 21.1-9.

DEUTERONOMY 21.1-8  IF ONE IS FOUND KILLED IN THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS IT, LYING IN THE FIELD, AND IT IS NOT KNOWN WHO HAS KILLED HIM,

THEN YOUR ELDERS AND YOUR JUDGES SHALL COME FORTH AND THEY SHALL MEASURE TO THE CITIES WHICH ARE AROUND THE ONE KILLED.

AND IT SHALL BE THAT THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE ONE KILLED, THE ELDERS OF THAT CITY SHALL TAKE A HEIFER WHICH HAS NOT BEEN WORKED WITH, AND WHICH HAS NOT DRAWN IN THE YOKE,

AND THE ELDERS OF THAT CITY SHALL BRING THE HEIFER DOWN TO A ROUGH VALLEY WITH A STREAM IN IT, THAT HAS NEITHER BEEN PLOWED NOR SOWN, AND SHALL BREAK THE HEIFER’S NECK BY THE BROOK.

AND THE PRIESTS, THE SONS OF LEVI, SHALL COME NEAR, FOR THEM THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN TO MINISTER TO HIM, AND TO BLESS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.  AND BY THEIR MOUTH SHALL EVERY CONTROVERSY AND EVERY STROKE BE.

AND ALL THE ELDERS OF THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE ONE KILLED SHALL WASH THEIR HANDS OVER THE HEIFER WHOSE NECK WAS BROKEN BY THE BROOK.

AND THEY SHALL ANSWER AND SAY, OUR HANDS HAVE NOT SHED THIS BLOOD, NEITHER HAVE OUR EYES SEEN IT.

ATONE FOR YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL WHOM YOU HAVE REDEEMED AND RESCUED, O LORD, AND FORGIVE THEM, AND DO NOT PUT INNOCENT BLOOD IN THE MIDST OF YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL.

THE KEY HERE IS THAT GOD FORGIVES THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICIAL SLAUGHTER, AND ATONEMENT MADE BY THE HEIFER.  PERHAPS THE WAY THE HEIFER WAS KILLED REVEALS THE AGONY THAT THE INNOCENT VICTIM EXPERIENCED, AND THE PUNISHMENT THE MURDERER WILL RECEIVE.

ALSO IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ELDERS OF THE CITY THAT IS NEAREST TO THE DEAD BODY, AND THE PRIESTS TO DETERMINE WHO DID IT.  AND THEN THE PRIESTS WILL DECIDE THE PUNISHMENT FOR THE KILLER IF AND WHEN HE OR SHE IS FOUND.

BUT NO ONE CAN HIDE FROM GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 19.21, JEREMIAH 23.23-24

DEUTERONOMY 21.9  AND YOU SHALL PUT AWAY THE GUILT OF INNOCENT BLOOD.  THAT IS TO SAY, GOD WILL CLEAR THE INNOCENT FROM SIN AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHEN THEY SHALL DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

THE TITLE OF THIS MESSAGE IS, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

SO I DECIDED TO LOCATE THE FIRST BLESSING OF GOD THAT IS RECORDED IN THE BIBLE THINKING THAT ABEL RECEIVED THE FIRST BLESSING.  AND THEN I REMEMBERED THAT ABEL WAS KILLED BY HIS BROTHER CAIN.

I’M ASSUMING THAT GOD BEGAN THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM WITH ADAM AND EVE WHEN THE LORD MADE COATS OF ANIMAL SKINS FOR THEM AFTER GOD HAD ADAM SACRIFICE A CLEAN ANIMAL OR ANIMALS TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SIN, DISOBEYING GOD BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

LET’S GO BACK IN HISTORY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION WHEN GOD PLANTED THE GARDEN OF EDEN AND THERE HE PUT THE MAN ADAM WHOM HE FORMED OUT OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND.  AND YOU ALL KNOW THE WORDS OF SOLOMON, THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

AND YOU ALL KNOW THE WORDS THAT GOD SAID TO ADAM IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.  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 WILL SURELY DIE. 

THESE ARE THE FIRST WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE TO A HUMAN BEING.  A COMMANDMENT.  AND GOD’S COMMANDMENT IS LAW.

SO AS THE WORLD KNOWS, ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD AND LISTENED TO THE SNAKE SATAN, AND ATE THE FRUIT OF THE TREE THAT GOD COMMANDED ADAM NOT TO EAT.  AND IN TIME, AS GOD SAID, ADAM AND EVE, WHOM GOD CREATED TO LIVE FOREVER, DIED BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN OF DISOBEYING THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

SO GOD BEGAN THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM FOR ATONEMENT BACK THEN WITH ADAM AND EVE BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN OF DISOBEYING GOD.  AND I’M SURE ADAM AND EVE TOLD THEIR CHILDREN TO OBEY GOD, AND THAT GOD REQUIRED AN ANIMAL SACRIFICE TO FORGIVE THEIR SINS.

AND YOU KNOW WELL THESE WORDS THAT GOD SPEAKS IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES; AND THESE WORDS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY SHALL BE IN YOUR HEART, AND YOU SHALL TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY TO YOUR CHILDREN AND SHALL TALK OF THEM WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE, AND WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY, AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN AND WHEN YOU RISE UP.  DEUTERONOMY 6.6-7

I’M GUESSING THAT ADAM AND EVE TAUGHT SIMILAR WORDS TO THEIR KIDS.  ADAM AND EVE BOTH SPOKE WITH GOD FACE TO FACE, AND AFTER THEY DISOBEYED GOD, THE LORD TOLD THEM WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WOULD BE FOR THEIR SIN.  YOU CAN READ OF THEM IN GENESIS 3.  BUT LIKE MOST CHILDREN AND ADULTS, VERY, VERY FEW PEOPLE DO WHAT GOD SAYS.

SO CAIN, ADAM AND EVE’S FIRST SON, DECIDED TO DISOBEY GOD.  AND RATHER THAN BRING A CLEAN ANIMAL TO THE LORD FOR A SACRIFICE TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR HIMSELF, HE BROUGHT CROPS FROM HIS GARDEN TO THE LORD.  AND ABEL, HIS BROTHER, THE SECOND BORN TO ADAM AND EVE, OBEYED GOD AND BROUGHT THE FIRST BORN OF HIS FLOCK FOR A SACRIFICE.  AND THE BIBLE SAYS, THE LORD HAD RESPECT FOR ABEL’S OFFERING, BUT THE LORD DID NOT RESPECT CAIN’S OFFERINGS OF CROPS.

AND GOD ASKED CAIN, WHY ARE YOU ANGRY?  WHY IS YOUR FACE FALLEN?  AND GOD ASSURED CAIN THAT IF HE DID WELL AND OBEYED GOD, THE LORD WOULD ACCEPT HIM AND RECEIVE HIM, AND GIVE HIM FAVOR.  AND CAIN WOULD BE RIGHT WITH GOD.  AND GOD WILL BLESS HIM.

THAT IS WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES THROUGHOUT FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, BY GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA, THE PROPHETS, THE DISCIPLES, THE APOSTLES, THE WRITERS OF THE BIBLE, AND SO MANY OTHERS, THAT IF YOU DO RIGHT BY OBEYING GOD, BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, THE LORD WILL ACCEPT YOU, AND RECEIVE YOU, AND GIVE YOU FAVOR, AND YOU WILL BE RIGHT WITH GOD, AND GOD WILL BLESS YOU.

GOD’S SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.  THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME.

BUT THE WORLD FOR THE MOST PART DOES NOT OBEY GOD, OR ANYTHING GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE.  AND HORDES OF PROFESSIONAL BIBLE TEACHERS TEACH THE WORLD NOT TO OBEY GOD WITH THE IDIOTIC TEACHING THAT JESUS ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES. 

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.  AND FOR THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, THEY HAVE CREATED BIG PROBLEMS FOR THEMSELVES AND FOR THOSE WHO RECEIVE THEIR LIE.  2 PETER 3.16

2 PETER 3.16  TO WREST THE SCRIPTURES MEANS TO PERVERT, TWIST, ABUSE, POISON, LEAD ASTRAY, AND TORTURE THE SCRIPTURES. 

SO CAIN KILLED ABEL.  WHY?  BECAUSE CAIN’S WORKS OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD WERE EVIL, AND HIS BROTHER ABEL’S WERE RIGHTEOUS.  1 JOHN 3.12

CAIN AND ABEL WERE NOT JEWISH.  FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION, GOD REQUIRES ALL MANKIND TO OBEY HIM.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD.  BUT THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL TEACH THE WORKS OF EVIL.

AND PERHAPS THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS THE CANCER OF ANTI SEMITISM HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.  WHY?  ONE REASON IS BECAUSE GOD SAID TO SATAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN THAT HE WOULD PUT HATRED BETWEEN THE WOMAN, WHO IS ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND SATAN AND HIS SEED.  SATAN’S SEED ARE THOSE WHO ARE LIKE SATAN WHO HATE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

AND PERHAPS ANOTHER REASON FOR ANTI SEMITISM IS BECAUSE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY GOD WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD IS NOT TAUGHT TO OBEY THE GOD OF CREATION, THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY GOD FROM THE BIBLE, BUT MOSTLY THROUGH THE TEACHINGS OF TALMUD.  TALMUD IS RABBINIC LAW, THAT IS ALSO JEWISH LAW.  AND ALTHOUGH TALMUD, WITH ITS MANY RABBINIC LAWS, IS PREDOMINATE IN JEWISH LIFE, THE TALMUD ALSO TEACHES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE PROPHETS, AND THE WRITINGS SUCH AS THE PSALMS AND THE PROVERBS. 

JEWISH PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO OBEY THE BIBLICAL TEACHINGS OF GOD.

BUT MUCH OF THE WORLD TEACHES THAT TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IS ABOLISHED.  AND THE REST OF THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF JUDAISM SIMPLY DOES NOT TEACH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD FROM THE BIBLE.  THEREFORE LIKE CAIN, MANY PEOPLE REJECT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE, OR THEY ARE NOT TAUGHT THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD, OR THEY DON’T CARE, OR THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN THE BIBLE, OR THEY REJECT THE BIBLE.

BUT ONE DAY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT IS FULLY PART OF THE BIBLE, AND THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THEIR MESSIAH.  BUT WHEN WILL NON JEWISH PEOPLE START TO SEE THE TRUTH OF BIBLICAL TEACHING?

GENESIS 2.15-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, 15, 21, GENESIS 5.5, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53, ECCLESIASTES 1.9, ZECHARIAH 12.10, REVELATION 12.13

SO WITH THAT SAID, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD GIVES TO THOSE WHO DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.

DOING RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD IS EXACTLY WHAT GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, AND MOSES  TEACH THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  DOING RIGHT IS LIVING BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN. 

GOD TOLD ADAM AND EVE AND CAIN AND ABEL TO OBEY HIM AND IT WOULD GO WELL WITH THEM.  AND THAT IS WHAT GOD TEACHES YOU FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AND IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THE FIRST BLESSING RECORDED IN THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN IN GENESIS CHAPTER 1 WHERE GOD SAID, IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, AND EVERYTHING IN THEM.  AND GOD CREATED US, EVERY HUMAN BEING.  AND ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE IN PREDESTINATION, WE HAVE GOD’S GREAT BLESSING TO LIVE ON THIS EARTH WHICH AT TIMES CAN BE A TOUGH ASSIGNMENT.  BUT GOD IS WITH US, TO PROTECT US, AND GIVE US GOOD SUCCESS, AND BLESS US WHEN WE OBEY HIM.  AND WE ALSO HAVE THE GREAT BLESSING IF WE DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD BY OBEYING HIM, OF SPENDING ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD OUR GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA WHERE THERE IS NO DEATH, NO SIN, NO CURSE, NO PAIN, NO TEARS, AND NO SORROW, BUT EVERLASTING JOY AND HAPPINESS.

AND THE BIBLE GIVES US THE FORMULA, THE GOOD NEWS, THE GOSPEL, THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ON HOW TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  AND GOD’S FORMULA TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS BY DOING THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.  LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES GOD’S SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.

HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8, MATTHEW 7.21-23, ROMANS 8.29-30, EPHESIANS 1.5, 11, REVELATION CHAPTERS 21 & 22

THE INDIVIDUAL WHO IS FIRST RECORDED IN THE BIBLE TO RECEIVE GOD’S BLESSING WAS ENOCH.  GENESIS 5.21-24

ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, AND HE WAS NOT, FOR GOD TOOK HIM.  GOD TOOK ENOCH TO HEAVEN PROBABLY THE SAME WAY GOD TOOK ELIJAH TO HEAVEN.  2 KINGS 2.1, 11

ELIJAH WALKED WITH GOD AS ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, AND GOD TOOK ELIJAH TO HEAVEN WHILE HE WAS YET ALIVE AS HE DID WITH ENOCH.

FOR ANYONE TO BE TAKEN UP INTO HEAVEN LIKE ENOCH AND ELIJAH, YOU MUST CLOSE YOUR EARS TO THE LIE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, BUT OPEN YOUR EARS TO THE TRUTH THAT GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES. 

AND LIVING BY THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOT DIFFICULT.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LUKE 4.4, LUKE 8.21, 1 JOHN 5.3

THE WORD WALKED IN HEBREW, AS IN ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD, IS KHAH’LAKH MEANING, FOLLOWED.  ENOCH FOLLOWED GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN ENOCH’S DAY.  READ GENESIS CHAPTERS 1 THROUGH CHAPTER 5 TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT GOD SPOKE IN THE DAYS OF ENOCH.

THE NEXT PERSON AND PERSONS BLESSED IN THE BIBLE ARE NOAH AND HIS FAMILY, EIGHT PEOPLE IN ALL.  WHY?  BECAUSE NOAH WAS A JUST MAN AND PERFECT, AND NOAH WALKED WITH GOD.  AND GOD SAW NOAH AS RIGHTEOUS BEFORE HIM.

GOD SAVED ONLY EIGHT PEOPLE FROM THE FLOOD, NOAH AND HIS FAMILY.  AND THEY ALSO INHERITED ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  EVERYONE ELSE DIED IN THE FLOOD BECAUSE THEY DISOBEYED GOD. 

GENESIS 6.5-9

GOD SAID, NOAH WAS A JUST MAN.  THE HEBREW FOR JUST IS STAH’DEEK MEANING LAWFUL.  THAT IS LAW ABIDING.  NOAH OBEYED GOD.  AND HE WAS RIGHTEOUS AS ENOCH AND ELIJAH WERE RIGHTEOUS.  NOAH DID WHAT GOD SAID.  HE DIDN’T LISTEN TO THOSE WHO SAID DIFFERENTLY, LIKE THOSE WHO SAY THE LAW IS ABOLISHED.

FROM THE DAYS OF ADAM AND EVE, MANY ARE BLESSED BY GOD FOR OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS WHICH ARE BUT A FEW.

GENESIS 7.1-2, MATTHEW 7.13-14, MATTHEW 22.14

HERE’S A FAMILIAR SCRIPTURE SEEN BY MANY EVERY SUNDAY.  MATTHEW 26.26-28

MESSIAH DID NOT SAY THAT HE CAME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  BUT ON THE CONTRARY, HE CAME TO SHED HIS BLOOD FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  MATTHEW 1.21

AND THEN WHAT, NOW THAT YOU BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA?  GOD REQUIRES YOU TO DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND THAT INCLUDES OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES. 

AND YOU WILL MEET ABEL AND ENOCH IN HEAVEN, AND ELIJAH, AND NOAH AND HIS FAMILY, AND ALL THOSE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD WHO LIVED THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, AND THOSE WHO BLESSED THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 25.31-46

HERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES TEACHING YOU THAT GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF GOD.

DEUTERONOMY 28, MATTHEW 6.31-33, MATTHEW 13.23, ACTS 5.32, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 8.6-7, EPHESIANS 5.1, JAMES 1.25, AND REVELATION 22.14 IN KJV & NKJV

SO YES, GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU AND CONTINUE TO COME UPON YOU WHEN YOU DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.

GOD’S LAWS FOR WAR AND MILITARY SERVICE

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue in Deuteronomy 20.1-20.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR WAR AND MILITARY SERVICE.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 20.1-20.

DEUTERONOMY 20.1  WHEN YOU GO OUT TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES AND SEE HORSES AND CHARIOTS, AND A PEOPLE MORE THAN YOU, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THEM, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU WHO BROUGHT YOU UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.

CAN THIS BE THE REASON FOR ANTI SEMITISM?  BECAUSE THE LORD GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR?  IS ANTI SEMITISM AND ANTI ISRAEL A PRODUCT OF JEALOUSY THAT GOD HAS CHOSEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, AND THAT GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR?

ANTI SEMITISM CONTINUES BEING A GLOBAL CANCER TODAY THAT SPITS OUT LIES ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT GOD IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, EVEN IN WAR.

SO WHY IS GOD WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE?  BECAUSE IT IS AN ACT OF GRACE ON BEHALF OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY TO CHOOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.

THE PROPHET MOSES SPOKE GOD’S WORDS TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS 3,400 YEARS AGO JUST BEFORE THEY FOUGHT AGAINST, AND POSSESSED THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT GOD GAVE HIS JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN INHERITANCE.

MOSES SAID, FOR YOU ARE A HOLY PEOPLE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD.  THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE TO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

THE LORD DID NOT SET HIS LOVE UPON YOU NOR CHOOSE YOU BECAUSE YOU WERE MORE IN NUMBER THAN ANY PEOPLE, FOR YOU WERE THE FEWEST OF ALL PEOPLE.

BUT BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED YOU, AND BECAUSE HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE HAD SWORN TO YOUR FATHERS, HAS THE LORD BROUGHT YOU OUT WITH A MIGHTY HAND AND DELIVERED YOU AND RESCUED YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE OF SLAVERY FROM THE HAND OF PHARAOH KING OF EGYPT.

KNOW THEREFORE, GOD SAID, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD, HE IS GOD, THE FAITHFUL GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND MERCY WITH THEM WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.

GOD’S COVENANT IS HIS WORD SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE THAT IS LAW THAT GOD KEEPS, ALONG WITH HIS MERCY TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM, TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.  THAT IS FOREVER.

AND GOD REPAYS THEM WHO HATE HIM TO THEIR FACE, TO DESTROY THEM.  HE WILL NOT BE SLACK TO HIM WHO HATES HIM.  GOD WILL REPAY HIM TO HIS FACE.

THEREFORE GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS AND THE STATUTES AND THE JUDGMENTS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY TO DO.  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS ARE HIS LAWS AND TEACHINGS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND IT SHALL BE, GOD SAYS, BECAUSE YOU OBEY THESE JUDGMENTS, GOD’S LAWS, AND KEEP, AND DO THEM, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SHALL KEEP TO YOU THE COVENANT AND THE MERCY THAT HE SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS.

AND HE WILL LOVE YOU, AND BLESS YOU, AND MULTIPLY YOU.  HE WILL ALSO BLESS THE FRUIT OF YOUR WOMB, AND THE FRUIT OF YOUR LAND, YOUR GRAIN, AND YOUR WINE, AND YOUR OIL, THE INCREASE OF YOUR CATTLE, AND THE FLOCKS OF YOUR SHEEP IN THE LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS TO GIVE YOU.

YOU SHALL BE BLESSED ABOVE ALL PEOPLE.  THERE SHALL NOT BE MALE OR FEMALE BARREN AMONG YOU, OR AMONG YOUR CATTLE.

AND THE LORD WILL TAKE AWAY FROM YOU ALL SICKNESS, AND PUT NONE OF THE EVIL DISEASES OF EGYPT WHICH YOU KNOW, UPON YOU.  BUT HE WILL LAY THEM UPON ALL THAT HATE YOU.

FOR YOU ARE MY WITNESSES SAITH THE LORD, AND MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN THAT YOU SHALL KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM HE.  BEFORE ME THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE AFTER ME.

I, I AM THE LORD, AND BESIDE ME THERE IS NO SAVIOR.

DEUTERONOMY 7.6-15, PSALM 105.8-10, ISAIAH 43.10-11

GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE HE LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BRING HIS SPOKEN WORD, THE WORD OF GOD, TO THE WORLD THAT HE LOVES, BY WRITING THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

BUT IF GOD ALLOWED THE NATIONS TO WIPE OUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH AS SO MANY HAVE TRIED, THERE WOULD BE NO BIBLE, NO MESSIAH, AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WOULD HAVE DISAPPEARED FOREVER.  A TRAGEDY BECAUSE THERE IS NO RELIGION IN THE WORLD OTHER THAN JUDAISM THAT TEACHES THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT THEIR LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS, ARE WRITTEN BY MEN, NOT GOD.

2 PETER 3.16

BUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ERRED ALSO.  RATHER THAN TEACH THE PURE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE WRITTEN WHICH HAS THE TORAH THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, AND THE PROPHETS, AND THE WRITINGS, AND THE NEW TESTAMENT, JUDAISM TEACHES TALMUD, RABBINIC LAW THAT HAS TORAH WRITTEN IN IT, BUT IS OVERWHELMED WITH RABBINIC LAW.

GOD NEVER COMMANDED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE TAUGHT RABBINIC LAW.  GOD COMMANDS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL HUMANITY TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LEVITICUS 10.10-11, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

THAT IS THE REASON MESSIAH YESHUA HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE PHARISEES.  NOT BECAUSE HE HATED THEM.  ABSOLUTELY NOT, BUT BECAUSE THE PHARISEES TAUGHT TALMUD, RABBINIC LAW TO HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE RATHER THAN PURE TORAH THAT CONTAINS THE PURE WORD OF GOD.  AND RABBINIC LAW, THAT IS JEWISH LAW, IS TAUGHT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD RATHER THAN THE PURE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.  AND THE BIBLE INCLUDES THE NEW TESTAMENT.

BUT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR EVERY NON JEWISH PERSON TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO BE FULLY PART OF GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.  NOT BY BECOMING JEWISH, BUT BY LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.  FOR MESSIAH YESHUA SAYS, IT IS WRITTEN, MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.

MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

DEUTERONOMY 20.2-4  AND GOD, SPEAKING THROUGH HIS JEWISH PROPHET MOSES, SAID, AND IT SHALL BE WHEN YOU COME NEAR TO THE BATTLE, THAT THE PRIEST SHALL APPROACH AND SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE,

AND HE SHALL SAY TO THEM, HEAR O ISRAEL, YOU APPROACH THIS DAY TO BATTLE AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES.  LET NOT YOUR HEARTS FAINT.  FEAR NOT, AND DO NOT TREMBLE, NEITHER BE TERRIFIED BECAUSE OF THEM.

FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS HE THAT GOES WITH YOU TO FIGHT FOR YOU AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES TO SAVE YOU.

GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  THAT IS TO SAY, THE SPIRIT OF GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.  AND THERE IS NO BEGINNING OR END TO THE HEAVENS WHICH ARE THE TOTALITY OF SPACE.

AND SINCE THE SPIRIT OF GOD FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, GOD IS, AND CAN BE IN MANY DIFFERENT PLACES AT THE SAME TIME IN HUMAN FORM.  GOD IS MELCHIZEDEK, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  GOD IS YEHOVAH, GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE SON OF GOD.  AND GOD IS THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD.  AND IN SPIRIT, GOD IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  AND AS A HUMAN BEING, GOD IS MESSIAH YESHUA, AND GOD ALMIGHTY, AND GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER IN HEAVEN.  AND GOD IS THE SAVIOR.

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  ALL ARE ELOHIM.  ELOHIM IN HEBREW MEANS GODS, YET THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY, AND SO MUCH MORE.  HE IS ELOHIM. 

ISAIAH 43.10-11, HEBREWS 7.1-3

GOD SAID THROUGH HIS PROPHET MOSES, 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 ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW.  THAT IS, WE ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW OF MOSES.

EVERYTHING GOD DOES IS A MIRACLE.  SPEAKING THE CREATION INTO EXISTENCE, CREATING LIFE.  RAISING THE DEAD, HEALING THE SICK.  GUIDING THE PATH OF EVERY HUMAN BEING AND EVERY LIVING THING.  THE SECRET THINGS BELONG TO THE LORD OUR GOD BUT THE THINGS THAT ARE REVEALED BELONG TO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOREVER THAT WE ARE TO DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW OF MOSES.

BUT YET THE WORLD IGNORES GOD AND DOES NOT LIVE BY HIS LAWS AND TEACHINGS, AND WORD, WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND FOR THE MOST PART IN THIS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE ARE TAUGHT THAT ALL THE WORDS OF THE LAW OF MOSES ARE ABOLISHED.  AND WE WONDER WHY THIS COUNTRY HAS SO MANY PROBLEMS, AS DOES THE REST OF THE WORLD FOR DISOBEYING GOD.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.28, CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.29, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JEREMIAH 23.24, MATTHEW 18.10, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 10.30, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

DEUTERONOMY 20.5-9 AND THE OFFICERS SHALL SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE, SAYING, WHAT MAN IS THERE THAT HAS BUILT A NEW HOUSE, AND HAS NOT DEDICATED IT?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE, LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE, AND ANOTHER MAN DEDICATE IT.

AND WHAT MAN IS HE THAT HAS PLANTED A VINEYARD, AND HAS NOT EATEN OF IT?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE AND ANOTHER MAN EAT OF IT.

AND WHAT MAN IS THERE THAT IS ENGAGED TO A WOMAN AND NOT MARRIED TO HER?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HE DIE IN THE BATTLE AND ANOTHER MAN TAKE HER.

AND THE OFFICERS SHALL SPEAK FURTHER TO THE PEOPLE, AND SAY TO THEM, WHO IS THE MAN WHO IS AFRAID AND FAINT OF HEART?  LET HIM GO AND RETURN TO HIS HOUSE LEST HIS BROTHER’S HEART FAINTS AS WELL AS HIS HEART.

AND IT SHALL BE WHEN THE OFFICERS HAVE FINISHED SPEAKING TO THE PEOPLE THAT THEY SHALL MAKE CAPTAINS OF THE ARMIES TO LEAD THE PEOPLE.

SO NOW ISRAEL HAS AN ARMY WITHOUT MEN WHO RECENTLY BUILT A NEW HOUSE BUD DID NOT DEDICATE IT, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO RECENTLY PLANTED A VINEYARD BUT HAVE NOT EATEN OF IT, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO WERE RECENTLY ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED, AND WITHOUT MEN WHO ARE AFRAID AND FAINTHEARTED.

BUT THE ARMY OF ISRAEL HAS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GOES WITH THEM TO FIGHT AGAINST THEIR ENEMY TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE.

DEUTERONOMY 20.10-18  AND MOSES SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE THE WORDS OF GOD, SAYING, WHEN YOU COME NEAR TO A CITY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT, THEN YOU SHALL CALL OUT TO IT FOR PEACE.

AND IF THEY ANSWER YOU, AND THEY SEEK PEACE, AND THEY OPEN THE CITY TO YOU, THEN IT SHALL BE THAT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE FOUND IN THAT CITY SHALL BE LABORERS FOR YOU, AND THEY SHALL SERVE YOU.

BUT IF THEY WILL NOT MAKE PEACE WITH YOU, BUT WILL MAKE WAR AGAINST YOU, THEN YOU SHALL LAY SIEGE TO IT AND SURROUND THE CITY, AND ATTACK IT.

AND WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS DELIVERED THE CITY INTO YOUR HANDS, YOU SHALL KILL EVERY MALE OF THE CITY WITH THE EDGE OF THE SWORD.

ISRAEL IS NOT DOING TODAY WHAT GOD COMMANDS IN THIS PASSAGE, BUT WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH RETURNS, HE BY HIMSELF WILL CARRY OUT HIS WORDS.  ZECHARIAH 14.12

BUT THE WOMEN, AND THE LITTLE ONES, AND THE CATTLE, AND ALL THAT ARE IN THE CITY, EVEN ALL THE SPOIL OF IT, YOU SHALL TAKE FOR YOURSELF, AND YOU SHALL EAT THE SPOIL OF YOUR ENEMIES WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.

SO SHALL YOU DO TO ALL THE CITIES THAT ARE VERY FAR OFF FROM YOU WHICH ARE NOT OF THESE CANAANITE NATIONS.

BUT OF THE CITIES OF THESE PEOPLE WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES TO YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, YOU SHALL NOT KEEP ALIVE ANYTHING THAT BREATHES.

BUT YOU SHALL UTTERLY DESTROY THEM, THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, THE CANAANITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE, AS THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS COMMANDED YOU.

SO THEY WILL NOT TEACH YOU TO DO AFTER ALL THEIR ABOMINATIONS WHICH THEY HAVE DONE FOR THEIR gods, AND YOU WOULD SIN AGAINST THE LORD YOUR GOD.

THOSE WHO TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED ARE AN ABOMINATION.  THEY SIN AGAINST MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. 

1 JOHN 3.4-10, REVELATION 3.10, ISAIAH 24.4-6

1 JOHN 3.4-6  THOSE WHO SIN, THOSE WHO TRANSGRESS THE LAW OF MOSES, DO NOT KNOW GOD. 

DEUTERONOMY 20.19-20  WHEN YOU SHALL BESIEGE A CITY MANY DAYS, TO WAGE WAR AGAINST IT TO SEIZE IT, YOU SHALL NOT DESTROY ITS TREES BY FORCING AN AXE AGAINST THEM, FOR YOU MAY EAT OF THEM.  AND YOU SHALL NOT CUT THEM DOWN, FOR IS THE TREE OF THE FIELD A MAN THAT IT SHOULD BE BESIEGED OF YOU?

ONLY THE TREE THAT YOU KNOW IS NOT A TREE FOR FOOD, THAT YOU MAY DESTROY AND CUT DOWN, AND YOU MAY BUILD SIEGE-WORKS AGAINST THE CITY THAT MAKES WAR WITH YOU UNTIL IT IS SUBDUED.

SO HOW TO SUMMARIZE THIS TEACHING?

KNOW THAT GOD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS, IN WAR, IN PEACE, AND EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU ARE DOING ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS WRITTEN IN IT.

Shalom,

GOD’S LAWS FOR THE MURDERER, THE INNOCENT, AND THE TESTIMONY AND INTEGRITY OF WITNESSES.

Shalom,

Our studies in Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 19.1-21.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, GOD’S LAWS FOR THE MURDERER, THE INNOCENT, AND THE TESTIMONY AND INTEGRITY OF WITNESSES.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 19.1-21.

DEUTERONOMY 19.1-2  WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CUT OFF THE NATIONS WHOSE LAND THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU, AND YOU REPLACE THEM, AND DWELL IN THEIR CITIES AND IN THEIR HOUSES,

YOU SHALL SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR YOURSELVES IN THE CENTER OF THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS.

THESE BIBLICAL WORDS FROM THE PROPHET MOSES WERE WRITTEN SOME 3,400 YEARS AGO THAT FULFILLS THE PROMISE THAT GOD MADE WITH ABRAHAM TO GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO HIM AND HIS JEWISH DESCENDANTS FOREVER.  GENESIS 13.12-18

YET THE WORLD IS LIED TO DAILY.  THE WORLD IS TOLD THAT THE WEST BANK, KNOWN IN ISRAEL AS JUDEA AND SAMARIA ARE HELD UNDER ISRAELI MILITARY OCCUPATION.  BUT THE WEST BANK IS JEWISH LAND IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL, AND HAS BEEN JEWISH LAND FOR 3,400 YEARS.

WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DESCRIBES THE WORD OCCUPATION AS SEIZURE AND CONTROL OF AN AREA BY MILITARY FORCES.  ESPECIALLY A FOREIGN TERRITORY.

JUDEA AND SAMARIA, THE WEST BANK, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF ISRAEL, AS NORTH CAROLINA IS PART OF THE UNITED STATES, AND NEVER FOREIGN TERRITORY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  HOWEVER THE WEST BANK IS FOREIGN TERRITORY TO THE PALESTINIAN ARABS, AND OCCUPIED BY PALESTINIAN ARABS.

LIKE ALL GOD’S CREATION, THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS TO GOD, AND GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.  AND OFTEN REPEATED BY THE LORD THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE AS WRITTEN HERE IN DEUTERONOMY 19.1 THAT READS, “WHOSE LAND THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU,” THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

4,000 YEARS AGO, GOD PROMISED ABRAHAM THAT HE WOULD GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.  AND 600 YEARS LATER, GOD COMMANDED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO CONQUER AND POSSESS THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR THEIR INHERITANCE TO BECOME THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH HOMELAND FOR AS LONG AS THE EARTH REMAINS.

GENESIS 15.18-21, GENESIS 17.8, LEVITICUS 25.23

Webster’s Dictionary describes RELIGION as, The service and worship of GOD, or the supernatural.  And a personal set and institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices.

IN OTHER WORDS, A RELIGION IS BELIEF IN GOD, AND ITS RULES ARE MADE BY PEOPLE.

AS COMPARED TO THE BIBLE THAT IS NOT A RELIGION BUT A WAY TO LEARN ABOUT GOD, TO KNOW GOD, BELIEVE IN GOD, WHOSE RULES ARE MADE BY GOD, AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD

MY POINT IS THIS.  MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE IN GOD, AND MANY READ THE BIBLE.  THEREFORE THEY SHOULD BELIEVE GOD THAT HE HAS GIVEN ALL THE LAND OF ISRAEL, THAT INCLUDES THE WEST BANK, TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER, RATHER THAN BELIEVE LIES ABOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  GENESIS 12.3

THE JEWISH PEOPLE DO NOT OCCUPY ISRAEL NOR DO THEY OCCUPY THE WEST BANK.  ALL ISRAEL, THAT INCLUDES THE WEST BANK, IS THE HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.

IT IS THE PALESTINIAN ARABS WHO OCCUPY LAND IN ISRAEL IN THE WEST BANK THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.  AND THE PALESTINIANS SEEK TO KILL THE JEWS AND OCCUPY ALL ISRAEL.  SEE THE ACTIONS OF HAMAS, HEZBULLAH, AND THE PLO, AND KNOW THEIR CHARTER.

THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, EVER.  WHY?   BECAUSE GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE PALESTINIAN ARABS WERE A PEOPLE, “AND I WILL GIVE TO YOU AND TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU THE LAND WHEREIN YOU ARE A STRANGER, ALL THE LAND OF CANAAN FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.”

ABRAHAM’S DESCENDANTS ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO DESCEND FROM ABRAHAM AND ISAAC. 

GENESIS 21.12

AND YES, GOD DOES HAVE BORDERS FOR THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  DEUTERONOMY 32.8

AND THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL CONTINUE TO LOSE MEN AND WOMEN AND BLOOD BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO GOD, NOR WILL THEY DO WHAT GOD SAYS, THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER.

AND WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS, AND IT MAY NOT BE ALL THAT FAR OFF, HE WILL ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM IN THE ORIGINAL BORDERS OF ISRAEL FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER FOR THE WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, AND HIS HOLY ONES, WHOSE KINGDOM IS AN EVERLASTING KINGDOM, AND ALL DOMINIONS SHALL SERVE AND OBEY HIM.

GENESIS 15.18-21, DANIEL 7.27, ZECHARIAH 14

SO, DEUTERONOMY 19.1-3 READS, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS CUT OFF THE NATIONS, THAT IS, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD DESTROYS THE KENITES, THE KENNIZITES, THE KADMONITES, THE HITTITES, THE PERIZZITES, THE REPHAIM, THE AMORITES, THE CANAANITES, THE GIRGASHITES, AND THE JEBUSITES, AND GIVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE THEIR CITIES, AND THEIR HOMES, AND YOU LIVE IN THEM, AND REPLACE THEM, YOU SHALL SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR YOURSELVES IN THE CENTER OF THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO INHERIT, THAT EVERY SLAYER OF A HUMAN BEING MAY FLEE THERE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.4-6  AND GOD SAYS, THIS IS THE CASE OF ONE WHO KILLED A PERSON AND FLEES THERE TO THE CITY OF REFUGE, AND SHALL LIVE.  THE PERSON WHO KILLS SOMEONE BY ACCIDENT, WITH NO INTENT WHOM HE DID NOT HATE IN TIME PAST.

FOR INSTANCE, THE LORD GOD SAYS, A MAN GOES INTO THE WOODS WITH SOMEONE TO CUT WOOD, AND HIS HAND SWINGS AN AXE TO CUT A TREE, AND THE AXE HEAD SLIPS OFF ITS HANDLE AND HITS HIS FRIEND, AND KILLS HIM.  THAT MAN SHALL FLEE TO ONE OF THOSE CITIES AND LIVE, LEST THE AVENGER OF BLOOD WHO SEEKS TO TAKE VENGEANCE FOR THE KILLING PURSUES THE KILLER IN THE HEAT OF HIS ANGER, AND OVERTAKES HIM BECAUSE THE WAY IS LONG, AND KILLS HIM.  YET THERE WAS NO DEATH PENALTY, NO SENTENCE OF DEATH BECAUSE THE SLAYER DID NOT HATE HIM, NOR WAS HE AN ENEMY BEFORE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.7-9  SO GOD COMMANDED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO SEPARATE THREE CITIES FOR THEMSELVES.  AND IF THE LORD GOD ENLARGES YOUR BORDERS AS HE HAS SWORN TO YOUR FATHERS, AND GIVES YOU ALL THE LAND WHICH HE HAS PROMISED YOUR FATHERS,

IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS.  THAT IS, IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, TO DO THEM WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU THIS DAY, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND WALK IN HIS WAYS FOREVER, THEN YOU SHALL ADD THREE MORE CITIES BESIDE THESE THREE.

THESE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT.  IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS TO SAY, IF YOU WILL KEEP ALL GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, TO DO THEM WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU THIS DAY, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND WALK IN HIS WAYS FOREVER, AND AS DEUTERONOMY 28.1 AND 2 READ, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL SET YOU ON HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH, AND ALL THESE BLESSINGS SHALL COME ON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU, IF YOU WILL OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND DEUTERONOMY 28.15 READS, BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF YOU WILL NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, TO OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT IS, ALL HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY, ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU.

THE BIBLE TEACHES YOU TO LEARN ABOUT GOD, TO KNOW GOD, AND BELIEVE IN GOD, WHOSE RULES ARE MADE BY GOD.  AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT IF YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, YOU WILL INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD.

MATTHEW 26.28  

BUT IF YOU LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW GOD, WHO TEACH YOU TO DISOBEY GOD BY DISOBEYING GOD’S LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, YOU WILL NOT INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH GOD, BUT AS GOD SAYS IN DEUTERONOMY 28.15, ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU.

1 JOHN 3.4-10, MATTHEW 7.21-23

BUT GOD BLESSES THOSE WHO BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.  

GENESIS 12.3, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

It’s interesting to note that the three times THE GOD OF ISRAEL exiled His Jewish People out of The Land of Israel into captivity in 586 B.C.E./B.C., 722 B.C.E./B.C., and 70 C.E./A.D., was because of sin, disobeying GOD.  Not obeying THE LAW OF MOSES which is The Spoken Word of GOD

GOD exiled The Jewish People out of Israel in 70 C.E./A.D. because they rejected Their Messiah Yeshua Who is GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.  They should have known the time of His coming, Messiah said.

DANIEL 9.20-26, LUKE 19.41-44, 1 JOHN 3.4

So many people, Messianic Jews and Christians are taught the huge lie that because you believe in Yeshua The Messiah / Jesus Christ, you are free from obeying The Law of Moses.  You are saved by grace, and you don’t have to obey The Law of Moses, you are taught.  You have been taught a lie.  A very serious lie.

GOD Chose The Jewish People by an act of grace to be His Chosen People.  We did not do anything to be GOD’S Chosen People.  But yet GOD not only Chose The Jewish People, GOD Commands His Chosen People to always Obey Torah, His Law of Moses.

For Messianic Jews and Gentiles to be fully part of GOD’S Chosen People, along with your belief in Messiah Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you best obey The Law of Moses also. 

Obedience to Torah, The Law of Moses is Commanded by GOD throughout The Bible.

What does Paul say? Is GOD The GOD of The Jews only?  Is He not also The GOD of The Gentiles?  Yes, of The Gentiles also.

DEUTERONOMY 28, LUKE 8.21, ROMANS 3.29, 31

The sooner people realize that, the better off they will be in the end, because The Spoken Word of GOD that Jewish People recorded in The Bible that includes The Law of Moses is for all mankind, Jews and Gentiles to obey.

THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD IN THE BIBLE MUST ALWAYS HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE TEACHINGS OF YOUR BIBLE TEACHERS. 

MATTHEW 5.17  YESHUA THE MESSIAH / JESUS CHRIST SAID, DO NOT THINK THAT I HAVE COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS.  I HAVE NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFIL. 

TO FULFIL THE PROPHESIES CONCERNING THE JEWISH MESSIAH.

JOHN 14.9  YESHUA / JESUS SAID, HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER.

SO IF GOD CAST OUT HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMELAND ISRAEL THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, WILL GOD NOT ALSO PUNISH THOSE WHO DISOBEY HIM ACCORDING TO HIS SPOKEN WORD IN THE BIBLE?

DEUTERONOMY 18.19, ISAIAH 24.5-6

BACK TO DEUTERONOMY 19.10  THEREFORE, THE KILLER OF A PERSON BY MISTAKE, WITHOUT ANY INTENT OF MURDER CAN FLEE TO ONE OF THESE CITIES OF REFUGE BECAUSE HE IS INNOCENT AND NO BLOOD SHALL BE UPON HIM.

DEUTERONOMY 19.11-12  BUT IF A PERSON HATES SOMEONE, AND LIES IN WAIT FOR THAT PERSON, AND KILLS HIM, AND ESCAPES TO ONE OF THESE CITIES OF REFUGE, THEN THE ELDERS OF HIS CITY SHALL BRING HIM BACK FROM THE CITY OF REFUGE AND DELIVER HIM INTO THE HAND OF THE ONE WHO WILL EXACT RETRIBUTION FOR THE MURDER THAT HE SHALL DIE.

DEUTERONOMY 19.13  NO ONE SHALL PITY THE MURDERER, BUT YOU SHALL PUT AWAY THE GUILT OF INNOCENT BLOOD FROM ISRAEL THAT IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

THAT IS BIBLICAL TEACHING.  OBEY WHAT GOD SAYS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION AND IT WILL GO WELL WITH YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 19.14  THIS IS LAW.  JEWISH PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS SET UP LANDMARKS IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  LANDMARKS ARE BOUNDARY MARKERS.  GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL NOT REMOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR’S LANDMARK WHICH WAS SET UP IN TIME PAST IN YOUR INHERITANCE WHICH YOU SHALL INHERIT IN THE LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU TO POSSESS IT.

DEUTERONOMY 19.15  ONE WITNESS IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO CONVICT A PERSON OF ANY OFFENSE OR SIN.  BUT THE MATTER IS ESTABLISHED ONLY IF THERE ARE TWO OR THREE WITNESSES TESTIFYING AGAINST HIM.

DEUTERONOMY 19.16-19  IF A FALSE WITNESS COMES FORWARD AND LIES IN TESTIMONY AGAINST ANYONE, THEN BOTH WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE CONTROVERSY SHALL STAND BEFORE THE LORD, BEFORE THE PRIESTS, AND THE JUDGES, WHICH SHALL BE IN THOSE DAYS.  AND THE JUDGES SHALL MAKE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION.  AND IF THE WITNESS IS A FALSE WITNESS WHO LIES IN HIS TESTIMONY AGAINST HIS BROTHER, THEN THEY SHALL DO TO HIM AS HE SCHEMED TO DO TO HIS BROTHER.  SO SHALL YOU PUT THE EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.

DEUTERONOMY 19.21  AND YOU SHALL NOT PITY THE CONVICTED PERSON.  AND THIS IS HOW YOU SHALL JUDGE THE GUILTY; LIFE FOR LIFE, EYE FOR EYE, TOOTH FOR TOOTH, HAND FOR HAND, FOOT FOR FOOT.

SO, IN SUMMARY, IF YOU WILL DILIGENTLY OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE AND DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS WHICH GOD COMMANDS YOU, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL SET YOU ON HIGH ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, AND ALL GOD’S BLESSINGS WILL COME UPON YOU, AND OVERTAKE YOU, IF YOU WILL OBEY THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, HIS SPOKEN WORDS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME. TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

Shalom,

Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Deuteronomy 18.15-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME.  TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 18.15-22.

Let’s take these Verses line upon line and study what GOD told His Prophet Moses to tell The Jewish People, and all the world through The Bible.

DEUTERONOMY 18.15  THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME.  TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

TO START WITH, THIS PROPHET WHOM MOSES PROPHESIES THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP FROM AMONG THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WILL BE JEWISH LIKE MOSES WHO IS JEWISH.

NOW, THIS JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD WILL RAISE UP TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE IS UNIQUE BECAUSE ALL PROPHETS OF GOD ARE APPOINTED BY GOD AFTER THEY ARE BORN.  BUT THIS IS THE ONLY PROPHET WHO IS PROPHESIED TO BE RAISED UP BY GOD AT A FUTURE TIME.

SO NOT ONLY IS THIS PROPHET JEWISH LIKE MOSES, THIS UNIQUE PROPHET IS A DELIVERER LIKE MOSES.

AS MOSES DELIVERED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY AND DEATH IN EGYPT, LED BY THE HAND OF GOD, THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET DELIVERS FROM SIN AND DEATH.

MOSES WAS A GREAT PROPHET WHOM THE LORD KNEW FACE TO FACE.  AND MOSES PROPHESIED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOU OF YOUR BROTHERS WHO WILL BE LIKE ME, LIKE MOSES.  AND TO THIS PROPHET, YOU SHALL OBEY.

JEWISH PEOPLE SAY, MAHSHIAKH IS COMING.  MESSIAH IS COMING.  WELL, 1,300 YEARS AFTER MOSES SPOKE THIS PROPHESY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD RAISED UP THAT UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET.  AND HE IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH.  THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

AND THIS JEWISH PROPHET PROPHESIED BY MOSES TO BE RAISED UP BY THE LORD GOD TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL PROPHETS BECAUSE HE IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE JEWISH MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, ELOHIM, AND SO MUCH MORE; ALL IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA, THE GREATEST OF ALL PROPHETS.

BESIDES THE NUMEROUS MIRACLES THAT THIS UNIQUE PROPHET DID THAT CAN ONLY BE DONE BY ALMIGHTY GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA ALSO PROPHESIED OF HIS DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION.  THAT HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD WOULD BE FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.  AND HE PROPHESIED OF HIS RETURN AND THE END OF THE WORLD.

EXODUS 33.11, DEUTERONOMY 18.15, 18, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, MATTHEW 24.1-44, MATTHEW 26.28, LUKE 9.22,

MOSES WAS THE LAWGIVER WHO RECEIVED FROM GOD THE LAWS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES AND GAVE THEM TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND ALL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE LAWGIVER.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY WHO GAVE HIS LAWS TO MOSES FOR ISRAEL AND ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY.

MOSES DID MIRACLES SUCH AS LEADING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO THE PROMISED LAND BY THE HAND OF GOD, AND BRINGING WATER FROM A ROCK.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, NOT ONLY DOES MIRACLES, HE IS THE SOURCE OF ALL MIRACLES BECAUSE HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM.  EXODUS 17.6

MOSES NEVER REFERRED TO HIMSELF AS THE KING OF ISRAEL, THOUGH IN HIS DAY, MOSES WAS LIKE THE KING OF ISRAEL WHILE LEADING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FOR FORTY YEARS FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN.  BUT THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS THE KING OF ISRAEL.

ISAIAH 43.15, ISAIAH 44.6, JOHN 12.12-13

MOSES WAS OBEDIENT TO GOD.  HE OBEYED EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE.  BUT MOSES DID FALL FROM TIME TO TIME.  HOWEVER THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES NEVER SINNED BECAUSE HE OBEYED EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

1 PETER 2.21-22, 1 JOHN 3.4 

MOSES WAS MEEK ABOVE ALL THE MEN THAT WERE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.  THE JEWISH PROPHET THAT GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, MESSIAH YESHUA, WAS MEEK UNTO DEATH.

NUMBERS 12.3, ISAIAH 42.1-4, ISAIAH 53, MATTHEW 12.15-21

MOSES SPOKE AS GOD WHEN HE AND HIS BROTHER AARON SPOKE TO PHARAOH.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.

EXODUS 4.14-16, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6

MOSES TAUGHT TORAH, GOD’S LAWS CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  BUT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, BRINGS FORTH JUDGMENT TO THE GENTILES.  THAT IS, MESSIAH YESHUA BRINGS FORTH GOD’S LAWS TO THE GENTILES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THROUGH HIS SPOKEN WORD WRITTEN IN GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

ISAIAH 42.1, MATTHEW 12.18

DEUTERONOMY 18.15-18  SO MOSES SAID TO THE PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST WHAT YOU ASKED OF THE LORD YOUR GOD IN HOREB, THAT IS, IN MOUNT SINAI, WHEN THE LORD GAVE US THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN THE DAY WHEN ALL ISRAEL ASSEMBLED AT THE BOTTOM OF MOUNT SINAI.  AND YOU SAID, DO NOT LET ME HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD MY GOD AGAIN, NEITHER LET ME SEE THIS GREAT FIRE ANY MORE SO THAT I WILL NOT DIE.

AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, THEY HAVE WELL SPOKEN THAT WHICH THEY HAVE SPOKEN.

AND AGAIN, MOSES SAID TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHAT GOD TOLD HIM; THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOUR BROTHERS LIKE YOU, LIKE MOSES, AND I WILL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH, AND HE SHALL SPEAK TO THEM ALL THAT I SHALL COMMAND HIM.

THE WORDS THAT THIS UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, SPEAKS ARE WORDS THAT GOD PUT IN HIS MOUTH TO SPEAK.  EVERY WORD MESSIAH SPEAKS IS THE WORD OF GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY.  THEY ARE WORDS THAT GOD COMMANDS THE MESSIAH YESHUA TO SPEAK TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO ALL THE WORLD.  FOR THE BIBLE SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE. 

EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS TO BE OBEYED BY ALL MANKIND.

EXODUS 20.18-20, DEUTERONOMY 5.22-29, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

DEUTERONOMY 18.19  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, OR TRANSLATED FROM THE HEBREW, VAY’HAH’YAH, AND IT SHALL BE, THAT WHATEVER MAN, OR WHATEVER PERSON WILL NOT OBEY MY WORDS WHICH HE SHALL SPEAK IN MY NAME, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM.

NOW, WHAT DOES GOD MEAN WHEN HE SAYS, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM?

SOME JEWISH BIBLES TRANSLATE THE WORDS, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM, TO MEAN, HE OR SHE WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR HIMSELF TO ME, OR, I WILL EXACT FROM HIM, OR, I MYSELF WILL CALL HIM TO ACCOUNT.

WHATEVER THE EXACT WORDS ARE THAT GOD SPOKE TO MOSES, TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH, I WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM, IS VERY SERIOUS.  BECAUSE NOT OBEYING GOD, NOT OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES WRITTEN IN THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE IS A SERIOUS WRONG.  FOR GOD WILL REQUIRE IT OF HIM OR HER.

MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 4.17, EZEKIEL 18.21, 1 JOHN 3.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, LUKE 4.4, MATTHEW 5.17-20, 48, MATTHEW 13.23, MATTHEW 17.5, MATTHEW 24.35, MATTHEW 25.46

MATTHEW 5.17  MESSIAH YESHUA DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS.  

MATTHEW 17.5  THE WORD, HEAR, COMES FROM THE HEBREW, SHEMA, MEANING OBEY.  OBEY HIM.

MATTHEW 25.46  RIGHTEOUS IN HEBREW STAH’DEEK MEANING LAWFUL, OBEYING THE LAW OF MOSES.  ALSO BLESSING JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL IS RIGHTEOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.

THEREFORE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP LIKE MOSES FROM THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS YESHUA THE MESSIAH, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE EVERLASTING FATHER.

JOHN 6.14, JOHN 7.37-40, ACTS 3.22-23, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6

THERE IS ONLY ONE BIBLE.  IT IS NOT DIVIDED INTO TWO SECTIONS, THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.  THOSE ARE MAN MADE NAMES.  THE BIBLE IS FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  THAT IS THE BIBLE.

MESSIAH SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

THE NEW COVENANT IS MESSIAH YESHUA.  HE IS THE NEW COVENANT WHO REPLACED THE OLD COVENANT OF THE ANIMAL SACRIFICE FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS BY HIS SHED BLOOD WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.

MESSIAH DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DID HE COME TO PROCLAIM HIMSELF THE SECOND GOD IN THE TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT gods.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, HA SHEM ELOHIM.  AND HE CAME, AS HE SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, TO BE THE NEW COVENANT WHOSE BLOOD HE SHED FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

ISAIAH PROPHESIES THAT THE JEWISH PROPHET, MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS THE SERVANT OF GOD, ALSO CAME TO BRING FORTH JUDGMENT TO THE GENTILES.  THAT IS, MESSIAH SHALL BRING FORTH THE LAW OF MOSES TO THE GENTILES THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

ISAIAH 42.1, MATTHEW 12.18

ISAIAH 42.1 THE WORD JUDGMENT IN HEBREW IS MEESH’PAHT MEANING GOD’S LAW OF MOSES, COLLECTIVELY ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES THAT MESSIAH YESHUA BRINGS TO THE GENTILES FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.

THE UNIQUE JEWISH PROPHET IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO SAID IN GENESIS 1.1, IN THE BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

TO REPEAT, MESSIAH YESHUA DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DID HE COME TO DESTROY THE PROPHETS, NOR DID HE COME TO SUPPLANT THE OLD TESTAMENT.  NOR DID HE COME AS ANOTHER GOD, BECAUSE MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD, THE ALMIGHTY GOD.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FULFILLMENT OF MOSES’ PROPHESY, THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES, TO FORGIVE THE SINS OF MANY.  TO BRING THE GENTILES GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND TO BE KILLED ON A STAKE IN JERUSALEM, AND TO DIE AND SHED HIS BLOOD AS A HUMAN BEING FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 1.1-2 ff, MATTHEW 5.17, MATTHEW 12.17-18, MATTHEW 26.27-28

DEUTERONOMY 18.20  BUT THE PROPHET WHO SHALL PRESUME TO SPEAK A WORD IN MY NAME WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED HIM TO SPEAK, OR THAT SHALL SPEAK IN THE NAME OF OTHER gods, EVEN THAT PROPHET SHALL DIE.

NO NEED FOR EXPLANATION.

DEUTERONOMY 18.21-22  AND IF YOU SAY IN YOUR HEART, HOW SHALL WE KNOW THE WORD WHICH THE LORD HAS NOT SPOKEN?

WHEN A PROPHET SPEAKS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IF THE THING DOES NOT COME TRUE, NOR COME TO PASS, THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HAS NOT SPOKEN.  BUT THE PROPHET HAS SPOKEN IT ARROGANTLY.  YOU SHALL NOT BE AFRAID OF HIM.

AGAIN, NO EXPLANATION NEEDED.

SO IN SUMMARY, THE JEWISH PROPHET WHOM GOD RAISED UP TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE LIKE MOSES IS MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GLORY OF GOD, MECHIZEDEK, THE GOD OF CREATION, ELOHIM.  ALL ARE THE MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL.

THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS ALL THAT GOD IS BECAUSE THE JEWISH PROPHET MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  THAT IS THE UNSEARCHABLE GREATNESS OF THE LORD OUR GOD WHO FILLS THE HEAVENS AND EARTH.

TO HIM YOU SHALL OBEY.

PASSOVER AND ITS HISTORY

Shalom, and Happy Passover.

Our message this morning will come from Genesis 15.1-21.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, PASSOVER AND ITS HISTORY.

And with that said, let’s read Genesis 15.1-21

Genesis Chapter 15 goes back in history about 4,000 years and has some staggering history written in it that gives us some insight as to why The LORD GOD gave The Jewish People Passover.

LET’S START WITH GENESIS 15.1  ABRAHAM’S ORIGINAL NAME WAS ABRAM, AND HIS NAME REMAINED ABRAM FOR 99 YEARS BEFORE GOD CHANGED HIS NAME TO ABRAHAM.

AFTER THE LORD TOOK ABRAHAM OUT OF THE GENTILES WHEN HE WAS 75 YEARS OLD TO BE THE FATHER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THE FATHER OF MANY NATIONS, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM IN A VISION, FEAR NOT ABRAM, I AM YOUR SHIELD AND YOUR EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD.  WHICH TELLS ME THAT WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT AND YOU ARE LIKE ABRAHAM WHO BELIEVES IN THE LORD GOD, AND YOU OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS AS ABRAHAM DID, GOD IS YOUR SHIELD AND YOUR EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD.

GENESIS 26.5

AND CONTINUING WITH THIS STAGGERING EVENT IN HISTORY, GOD TOLD ABRAHAM IN THAT VISION THAT HE WOULD GIVE ABRAHAM “THIS LAND.”  “THIS LAND” WAS CANAAN WHERE ABRAHAM AND SARAH WERE LIVING AT THE TIME. 

GENESIS 12.1-6, GENESIS 15.7, GENESIS 17.1,5

SO ABRAHAM ASKED GOD, HOW WILL I KNOW THAT I WILL INHERIT THIS LAND?  AND GOD TOLD ABRAHAM, GET ME A THREE YEAR OLD HEIFER, AND A THREE YEAR OLD FEMALE GOAT, AND A THREE YEAR OLD RAM, AND A TURTLEDOVE AND A PIGEON.  AND ABRAHAM DID AS GOD SAID.  AND HE CUT THEM IN TWO, AND HE LAID EACH PIECE OPPOSITE THE OTHER, BUT HE DID NOT CUT THE BIRDS IN TWO. 

AND WHEN BIRDS OF PREY CAME DOWN UPON THE CARCASSES ABRAHAM DROVE THEM AWAY.  AND WHEN THE SUN WAS GOING DOWN, A DEEP SLEEP FELL UPON ABRAHAM, AND A HORROR OF GREAT DARKNESS FELL UPON HIM.

AND THESE ARE THE WORDS GOD SPOKE TO ABRAHAM THAT LEAD UP TO THE FIRST PASSOVER SOME 721 YEARS LATER. 

KNOW WITH CERTAINTY, GOD SAID, THAT YOUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE STRANGERS IN A LAND THAT IS NOT THEIRS.  THAT LAND, OF COURSE, WAS EGYPT.  AND THEY SHALL SERVE THEM, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.

AND ALSO, GOD SAID, THAT NATION WHOM THEY SHALL SERVE, I WILL JUDGE.  AND AFTERWARD THEY WILL COME OUT WITH GREAT WEALTH.  AND YOU SHALL GO TO YOUR FATHERS IN PEACE.  AND YOU SHALL BE BURIED IN A GOOD OLD AGE.  BUT IN THE FOURTH GENERATION, THAT IS TO SAY, AFTER FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, THEY SHALL COME HERE AGAIN, TO CANAAN.  FOR THE INIQUITY OF THE AMORITES IS NOT YET FULL.  THAT IS, THE SIN OF THE CANAANITE NATIONS WAS NOT COMPLETE AND BROUGHT TO AN END.

AMORITES IS A TERM FOR ALL THE CANAANITE NATIONS.

AND WHEN THE SUN WENT DOWN, AND IT WAS DARK, AND BEHOLD, A SMOKING FURNACE, AND A FLAMING TORCH OF FIRE PASSED BETWEEN THE ANIMAL PIECES.  THAT WAS GOD PASSING BETWEEN THE PIECES CONFIRMING THAT WHAT HE SAID TO ABRAHAM WILL SURELY HAPPEN.  AND IT DID HAPPEN.  EVERYTHING GOD SAYS WILL HAPPEN, HAPPENS.

AND IN THE SAME DAY THE LORD MADE A COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM.  THAT IS TO SAY, GOD PROMISED ABRAHAM, SAYING, UNTO YOUR DESCENDANTS HAVE I GIVEN THIS LAND FROM THE RIVER OF EGYPT TO THE GREAT RIVER, THE RIVER EUPHRATES, THE KENITE, AND THE KENIZZITE, AND THE KADMONITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE REPHAIM, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE CANAANITE, AND THE GIRGASHITE, AND THE JEBUSITE.

NOW IN TIME ABRAHAM AND SARAH HAD A SON, THEIR ONLY SON ISAAC.  AND ISAAC AND REBEKAH HAD TWINS, ESAU AND JACOB.  AND ONE OF JACOB’S AND HIS WIFE RACHEL’S SONS WAS JOSEPH.

YOU ALL KNOW THE STORY OF JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS.  JOSEPH’S BROTHERS HATED HIM AND WANTED TO KILL HIM BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THEIR FATHER JACOB FAVORED HIM ABOVE THEM.  SO JOSEPH’S BROTHERS TOSSED HIM INTO A DITCH WITHOUT WATER, AND WHILE THEY WERE DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH HIM, A GROUP OF MIDIANITE MERCHANTMEN CAME BY THE DITCH WITH JOSEPH IN IT AND PULLED HIM OUT AND SOLD HIM TO A GROUP OF ISHMEELITES FOR TWENTY PIECES OF SILVER.  AND THEY BROUGHT JOSEPH INTO EGYPT AND SOLD HIM.

GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM IS BEGINNING TO BE FULFILLED.  JOSEPH IS SOLD TO AN EGYPTIAN ARMY OFFICER.  THE OFFICER’S WIFE FAILS TO GET JOSEPH  IN BED SO THE WIFE HAS JOSEPH TOSSED INTO PRISON.  JOSEPH ENDS UP RUNNING THE PRISON, AND IN TIME INTERPRETS TWO DREAMS OF TWO EGYPTIAN PRISONERS.  THE DREAMS ARE INTERPRETED CORRECTLY.  ONE EGYPTIAN IS HANGED.  THE OTHER EGYPTIAN IS RETURNED TO HIS JOB WITH PHARAOH.

NOW PHARAOH HAD TWO DREAMS BUT NO ONE COULD INTERPRET THEM.  BUT THE EGYPTIAN WHO WAS RESTORED TO HIS JOB WITH PHARAOH TOLD THE KING ABOUT JOSEPH INTERPRETING HIS DREAM AND THE OTHER WHOM PHARAOH HUNG.  PHARAOH QUICKLY SUMMONED JOSEPH FROM PRISON TO INTERPRET HIS DREAMS, AND JOSEPH TOLD PHARAOH THAT IT IS GOD WHO INTERPRETS DREAMS. 

THE DREAMS PHARAOH HAD WERE ABOUT SEVEN YEARS OF GREAT AND PLENTY IN EGYPT AND JUST ABOUT ALL THE WORLD INCLUDING CANAAN WHERE THE FAMILY OF JOSEPH WAS.  AND THEN SEVEN YEARS OF HARD FAMINE IN EGYPT AND ALL THE COUNTRIES INCLUDING CANAAN.

SO PHARAOH NAMED JOSEPH THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT.  AND EVERYTHING JOSEPH SAID OF PHARAOH’S DREAMS CAME TRUE.  AND AFTER SEVEN YEARS OF GREAT AND PLENTY, CANAAN ALSO EXPERIENCED HARD FAMINE.  SO JACOB SENT HIS BOYS, TEN OF THEM TO EGYPT TO BUY FOOD.  YOU ALL KNOW THIS.  AND IN EGYPT, THEY BOW DOWN TO THEIR BROTHER JOSEPH WHOM THEY DO NOT RECOGNIZE, THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT.  BUT JOSEPH KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.

SO JOSEPH PROCEEDS TO DRIVE HIS BROTHERS NUTS CALLING THEM SPIES, PUTTING ONE OF HIS BROTHERS IN PRISON AND SENDING THEM BACK TO CANAAN LOADED WITH FOOD AND THE MONEY THEY BROUGHT TO BUY THE FOOD. 

AND TO RELEASE THEIR BROTHER FROM PRISON, JOSEPH, THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT, INSISTS ON SEEING THEIR YOUNGEST BROTHER. 

NOW JACOB, FEARING HE WOULD LOSE YET ANOTHER SON BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR OF EGYPT DEMANDS TO SEE THEIR YOUNGEST BROTHER WHO WAS JOSEPH’S YOUNGER BROTHER, FINALLY AGREES TO SEND BENJAMIN TO EGYPT WITH HIS BROTHERS. 

SO THE BROTHERS RETURN TO EGYPT WITH BENJAMIN, AND JOSEPH BREAKS DOWN AND TELLS HIS BROTHERS WHO HE IS.  KISSING, AND HUGGING, AND WEEPING, AND TEARS.  AND AT JOSEPH’S INVITATION WITH PHARAOH’S APPROVAL, THE ENTIRE JEWISH FAMILY OF JACOB, SEVENTY PEOPLE, FOR JOSEPH WAS ALREADY IN EGYPT, LEAVE CANAAN AND MOVE DOWN TO EGYPT.

AFTER JOSEPH AND ALL HIS BROTHERS, AND ALL THAT GENERATION DIED, THE BIBLE SAYS, THERE AROSE A NEW KING OVER EGYPT WHO DID NOT KNOW JOSEPH.  AND ALL THE PHARAOHS AFTER JOSEPH PUT THE JEWS TO HARD SLAVERY THAT LASTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.  AS GOD PROPHESIED.

NOW, GOD HAD PROMISED ABRAHAM THAT HE WOULD MAKE OF HIM A GREAT NATION.  AND GOD FULFILLED THAT PROPHESY IN EGYPT.  THE JEWISH PEOPLE GREW FROM SEVENTY PEOPLE TO A POPULATION OF SOME THREE MILLION.  AND THESE THREE MILLION JEWS WANTED OUT OF EGYPT, AND OUT OF SLAVERY.

AND GOD DID JUST THAT CHOOSING MOSES WHOM HIS MOTHER HID FROM THE EGYPTIAN SLAUGHTER OF JEWISH BOYS.  WHEN MOSES WAS THREE MONTHS OLD HIS MOTHER PUT HIM IN A BASKET AND SENT THE BASKET WITH THE BABY MOSES IN IT DOWN A RIVER.  AND PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER WAS WASHING HERSELF IN THE RIVER AND SAW THE BASKET AND SENT HER SERVANT GIRL TO GET IT.  AND MOSES BECAME THE SON OF PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER.

BUT WHEN MOSES GREW INTO A MAN, HE KILLED AN EGYPTIAN WHEN HE SAW THE EGYPTIAN BEATING A JEWISH MAN.  AND IT WAS TOLD TO PHARAOH AND MOSES FLED TO MIDIAN, A COUNTRY OF JEWISH HERITAGE.  BECAUSE AFTER SARAH DIED, ABRAHAM MARRIED KETURAH WHO GAVE BIRTH TO CHILDREN THAT INCLUDED A SON, MIDIAN, WHO BECAME THE FATHER OF MIDIAN.  GENESIS 25.1-2

SO IN MIDIAN ON MOUNT SINAI, GOD IN THE PERSON OF THE ANGEL OF GOD APPEARED TO MOSES IN A FLAME OF FIRE OUT OF THE MIDST OF A BUSH THAT BURNED BUT DID NOT CONSUME.  SO IN HIS CURIOSITY, MOSES WENT TO THE BUSH, AND GOD CALLED TO MOSES OUT OF THE FLAME IN THE BUSH.  AND GOD TOLD MOSES, DO NOT COME NEAR.  TAKE OFF YOUR SANDALS FOR THE PLACE WHERE YOU STAND IS HOLY GROUND. 

AND GOD TOLD MOSES THAT HE WAS THE GOD OF HIS FATHER, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB.  AND MOSES HID HIS FACE FOR HE WAS AFRAID TO LOOK UPON GOD.

AND THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, I HAVE SEEN THE AFFLICTION OF MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE IN EGYPT, AND I HAVE HEARD THEIR CRY BY REASON OF THEIR TASKMASTERS.  FOR I KNOW THEIR SORROWS.  AND I HAVE COME DOWN TO DELIVER THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE EGYPTIANS, AND BRING THEM INTO A GOOD LAND AND A LARGE LAND TO A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY TO THE PLACE OF THE CANAANITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE.

NOW THEREFORE, GOD SAID, BEHOLD, THE CRY OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAS COME TO ME, AND I HAVE SEEN THE OPPRESSION BY WHICH THE EGYPTIANS OPPRESS THEM.  COME NOW THEREFORE, THE LORD SAID, AND I WILL SEND YOU TO PHARAOH THAT YOU SHALL BRING FORTH MY PEOPLE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT.

AND MOSES SAID TO GOD, WHO AM I THAT I SHOULD GO TO PHARAOH AND THAT I SHOULD BRING FORTH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?  AND GOD SAID, I WILL CERTAINLY BE WITH YOU AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN TO YOU THAT I HAVE SENT YOU.  WHEN YOU HAVE BROUGHT FORTH THE PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT, YOU WILL SERVE GOD ON THIS MOUNTAIN.

AND MOSES SAID TO GOD, WHEN I COME TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND I SHALL SAY TO THEM, THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS HAS SENT ME TO YOU, AND THEY SHALL SAY TO ME, WHAT IS HIS NAME?  WHAT SHALL I SAY TO THEM?

AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, I AM THAT I AM.  AND GOD SAID, THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU.

AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB HAS SENT ME TO YOU.  THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, AND THIS IS HOW I AM TO BE REMEMBERED TO ALL GENERATIONS.

GO AND GATHER THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL TOGETHER AND SAY TO THEM, THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, OF ISAAC, AND OF JACOB HAS APPEARED TO ME SAYING, I HAVE SURELY VISITED YOU, AND SEEN THAT WHICH IS DONE TO YOU IN EGYPT.  AND I HAVE SAID, I WILL BRING YOU UP OUT OF THE AFFLICTION OF EGYPT TO THE LAND OF THE CANAANITE, AND THE HITTITE, AND THE AMORITE, AND THE PERIZZITE, AND THE HIVITE, AND THE JEBUSITE TO A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY.

AND THEY WILL LISTEN TO YOUR VOICE, AND YOU SHALL COME, YOU AND THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL TO THE KING OF EGYPT.  AND YOU SHALL SAY TO HIM, THE LORD GOD OF THE HEBREWS HAS MET WITH US, AND NOW LET US GO, WE BESEECH YOU, THREE DAYS JOURNEY INTO THE WILDERNESS THAT WE MAY SACRIFICE TO THE LORD OUR GOD.

AND I AM SURE THAT THE KING OF EGYPT WILL NOT LET YOU GO.  NO, NOT BY A MIGHTY HAND.  AND I WILL STRETCH OUT MY HAND AND STRIKE EGYPT WITH ALL MY WONDERS THAT I WILL DO IN THE MIDST OF IT, AND AFTER THAT, HE WILL LET YOU GO.

AND I WILL GIVE THE PEOPLE FAVOR IN THE SIGHT OF THE EGYPTIANS, AND IT SHALL BE THAT WHEN YOU GO, YOU WILL NOT GO EMPTY.  BUT EVERY WOMAN SHALL ASK OF HER NEIGHBOR, AND FROM THE STRANGER IN HER HOUSE, JEWELS OF SILVER, AND JEWELS OF GOLD, AND GARMENTS, AND YOU SHALL PUT THEM UPON YOUR SONS, AND UPON YOUR DAUGHTERS, AND YOU SHALL STRIP EGYPT.

BUT MOSES ARGUED WITH GOD.  THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BELIEVE ME, NOR WILL THEY LISTEN TO ME, FOR THEY WILL SAY, THE LORD HAS NOT APPEARED TO YOU.  AND THE LORD SAID, WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR HAND?  AND MOSES SAID, A ROD.

AND GOD SAID, TOSS IT ON THE GROUND.  AND MOSES TOSSED IT ON THE GROUND AND IT BECAME A SNAKE.  AND MOSES FLED FROM BEFORE IT.  AND GOD SAID, TAKE IT BY THE TAIL.  AND MOSES TOOK IT BY ITS TAIL AND IT BECAME A ROD IN HIS HAND.

AND GOD SAID, THAT THEY WILL BELIEVE THAT THE LORD GOD OF THEIR FATHERS, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB HAS APPEARED TO YOU.  BUT MOSES KEPT ARGUING WITH GOD.  AND THE LORD BECAME A LITTLE ANGRY WITH MOSES.  AND HE SENT HIS BROTHER AARON TO ASSIST HIM.  EXODUS 3-4

THE REST IS FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM.  GOD DESTROYED EGYPT BY TURNING THE WATERS TO BLOOD, SENDING PLAGUES OF FROGS, AND LICE, AND FLIES, UPON EGYPT.  AND GOD KILLED THE EGYPTIAN CATTLE, AND PUT BOILS AND ERUPTIONS ON THE EGYPTIANS.  AND GOD SENT HAIL AND FIRE, AND LOCUSTS, AND THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS UPON THE EGYPTIANS THAT COULD BE FELT.  AND THE LAST AND FINAL PLAGUE, GOD KILLED THE FIRSTBORN EGYPTIANS.

AND ON THE EVENING OF THE FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE FIRST HEBREW MONTH, GOD ESTABLISHED THE FIRST PASSOVER. 

GOD HAD EACH JEWISH HOUSEHOLD KILL A LAMB AND STRIKE ITS BLOOD ON THE UPPER DOOR POST, AND TWO SIDE POSTS OF THEIR HOUSES.  AND WHEN GOD CAME THROUGH EGYPT TO KILL THE FIRSTBORN EGYPTIANS, GOD WOULD SEE THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB ON THE DOORPOSTS.  AND GOD PASSED OVER THEIR HOUSES AND SAVED THEM ALIVE FOR THEIR DELIVERANCE OUT OF EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN TO BE CALLED THE LAND OF ISRAEL, A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAND ON EARTH.

AND DURING THEIR FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS GOD TAUGHT HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY TO SERVE THE HOLY GOD OF ISRAEL ACCORDING TO HIS SPOKEN WORD.  AND WHEN FORTY YEARS WERE COMPLETE, GOD SENT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL INTO CANAAN TO DESTROY THE CANAANITES AND POSSESS THE LAND OF CANAAN BECAUSE OF CANAAN’S GREAT SINS AGAINST GOD.  EZEKIEL 20.6

GOD’S PROPHESY TO ABRAHAM WAS COMPLETE AND FULFILLED.  BUT BEFORE ANSWERING THE QUESTION, WHY DID THE LORD GOD GIVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE PASSOVER, I’D LIKE TO SPEND A MOMENT ON WHY GOD EXILED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ISRAEL YEARS AFTER THEY ARRIVED.

GOD SENT ISRAEL INTO EXILE THREE TIMES.  FIRST TO ASSYRIA IN 722 B.C.E./B.C., AND THEN TO BABYLON IN 586 B.C.E./B.C.  BOTH TIMES BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE SINNED AGAINST THE LORD THEIR GOD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL BY DISOBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD.  AFTER WARNING AFTER WARNING AFTER WARNING FROM GOD’S PROPHETS, GOD EXILED HIS PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR LAND.  BUT GOD BROUGHT THEM BACK TO ISRAEL AGAIN IN 516 B.C.E./B.C.

AND GOD EXILED HIS JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ISRAEL A THIRD TIME IN 70 C.E./A.D. WHEN THE ROMANS DESTROYED JERUSALEM AND THE SECOND TEMPLE. NOT TO RETURN TO ISRAEL UNTIL AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR ENDED IN 1945, 2,000 YEARS LATER.

THERE WAS ALWAYS A PRESENCE OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL DURING THE EXILES.

DURING THE EXILE OF 70 C.E./A.D., THE ROMANS RENAMED ISRAEL, PALESTINE IN 135 C.E./A.D..

GOD’S EXILE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM ISRAEL IN 70 C.E./A.D. WAS NOT ONLY BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE DISOBEYED THE LORD THEIR GOD, THEY ALSO REJECTED THEIR GOD AND MESSIAH, YESHUA HAMASHIAKH.  AND FOR THOSE REASONS, GOD CAST HIS PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR LAND FOR ALMOST 2,000 YEARS.

THE EXILE TO ASSYRIA, 2 KINGS 17.6-23

THE EXILE TO BABYLON, 2 CHRONICLES 36.14-20

THE EXILE IN 70 C.E./A.D., LUKE 19.41-44

GOD BROUGHT MILLIONS OF JEWS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL AFTER THE WAR.  AND IN 1948 WHEN THE UNITED NATIONS DECIDED TO ALLOW THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO HAVE THEIR OWN HOMELAND IN ISRAEL THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION, PALESTINE WAS DIVIDED.  THE ONE HALF WAS GIVEN TO THE ARABS WHO CALL THEMSELVES PALESTINIANS, AND THE OTHER HALF TO THE JEWS, WHO RENAMED THEIR LAND, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  AND TODAY, AFTER MANY WARS, ISRAEL IS UNDER JEWISH CONTROL.

AND GOD PROMISES TO BRING HIS JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL WHO OBEY HIS SPOKEN WORD TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL WHEN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS AND ESTABLISHES HIS MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL FOR 1,000 YEARS WHERE MESSIAH WILL REIGN IN JERUSALEM.

DEUTERONOMY 30.1-10, JEREMIAH 23.5-8

OKAY, SO WHY DID THE LORD GOD GIVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE PASSOVER? 

UNLIKE THE THREE EXILES BECAUSE OF JEWISH SIN, DISOBEYING GOD, THE LORD SENT JACOB AND HIS JEWISH FAMILY OF 70 TO EGYPT FOR THE REASONS GOD CREATED PASSOVER FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. 

DURING 400 YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY, GOD MADE OF ABRAHAM A GREAT NATION FROM 70 JEWISH PEOPLE TO 3 MILLION JEWISH PEOPLE. 

AT THE CONCLUSION OF 400 YEARS OF SLAVERY, GOD ESTABLISHED HIS FIRST PASSOVER TO DELIVER HIS PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT.  BUT NOW WITH A MIGHTY JEWISH ARMY TO CONQUER CANAAN, WITH GOD’S GREAT HELP, THAT BECAME THE JEWISH HOMELAND, THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

AND DURING THOSE FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS FROM EGYPT TO CANAAN, GOD TAUGHT HIS PEOPLE HOW TO BE HOLY BY OBEYING HIS SPOKEN WORD CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS FOR A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN ISRAEL, FOLLOWED BY ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN. 

AND 2,000 YEARS AGO GOD ALMIGHTY, AS A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA, GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD IN JERUSALEM ON THE FIRST DAY OF PASSOVER TO BE YOUR ATONEMENT TO DELIVER YOU, AND GIVE YOU FREEDOM FROM YOUR SINS.

HAVE A WONDERFUL PASSOVER.
