Shalom.  Our study this morning from Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses, focuses on sexual crimes, and that the LORD GOD has separated His People from other people to be His.

Because of sexual crimes, GOD pronounces severe punishment against the guilty.  Some are sentenced  to death by GOD.  Burning by fire is pronounced by The LORD for another crime.  Others are cut off from their people which for most sexual crimes is death.

But if the guilty repent and turn to The LORD GOD Ha Shem Yeshua The Messiah for atonement of their sins that he or she has committed against The LORD by violating any of His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses in the first five Books of The Bible, and turn to GOD and keep all His Statutes that are written in The Law of Moses, and do that which is lawful and right, that person will surely live.  He or she will not die.

That was the primary purpose of Messiah Yeshua’s first coming 2,000 years ago, to give His Life for us.  To be our Atonement to all who believe.  And to put His Law of Moses in our heart to do them. And for GOD to be our GOD, and we His People.  Isaiah 53.10, Numbers 5.5-6, 1 John 3.4, Ezekiel 18.21-24, Jeremiah 31.31-34

The latter part of our study focuses on The LORD OUR GOD WHO has separated His Jewish People from other people to be His.  And that  along with the non-Jewish People who live their life as Messiah Yeshua says, By every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of GOD.

You also are His.  Matthew 4.4,  Luke 4.4, Deuteronomy 8.3

So with that said, hold onto your hats and we will read Leviticus 20.11-27.  Our study comes from GOD’S Laws that He has decreed  for all mankind to do, to live by, and obey.


LEVITICUS 20.11  To uncover one’s nakedness means having unlawful sexual relations with that person.  The crime is a man lying with his father’s wife.  The term to uncover one’s nakedness is a standard for incest, having sexual relations with a close relative.  GOD’S sentence is death to both the man and the woman.  Unless they repent and turn to The Messiah Yeshua for Atonement.

LEVITICUS 20.12  If a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death.  They have committed incest and have violated GOD’S Law.  Their blood shall be upon them, GOD says.  They have brought their punishment upon themselves.

By The Law of Moses is the knowledge of sin.  Romans 3.20.  Belief in Messiah Yeshua brings Atonement.  Isaiah 53.10.  Atonement must be followed with repentance.  Acts 2.37-38.

Atonement and repentance are gifts of GOD available to everyone.

LEVITICUS 20.13  GOD decrees that the act of homosexuality is an abomination that results in the death of both parties, handed down by GOD.

Homosexuality is sexual intercourse with a person of one’s own sex.  It is an abomination to GOD.

Gay marriage results in the death penalty for both parties.  The sentence is handed down from GOD.

The Supreme Court decision on making gay marriage legal nationwide in the United States will result in the death penalty to both parties handed down from GOD.  That is a judgment from GOD ALMIGHTY for violating His Law..

President Obama saying that gay marriage is a big step toward equality is but a big step toward the death sentence to both parties handed down by The GOD Of Creation.

Our President of the United States should support and defend The Word of GOD rather than reject it.

GOD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their sin, especially the sin of homosexuality.  Not only did GOD destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, and the entire region, He killed everyone living in those cities except Lot the nephew of Abraham, and Lot’s two daughters, and his wife.  But because his wife disobeyed the Commandment and looked back in curiosity at the destruction, she also died.  GENESIS 19.1-5, 13-15, 23-29, Romans 1.18, 24-28

(Genesis 19.5)  That we may know them means, that we may have sex with them.

(Genesis 19.25)  GOD annihilated Sodom and Gomorrah, and the entire region and all who lived there.

(ROMANS 1.18)  Ungodliness and unrighteousness are the same. Disobedience to GOD by violating His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.

Homosexuality is the result of disobeying GOD.

(Romans 1.28)  A reprobate mind is a mind that is disobedient to GOD and His Law of Moses.  1 SAMUEL 15.23

1 SAMUEL 15.23  The word Rejected in Hebrew, as in, You have rejected the Word Of God, is MAH’AHS meaning reprobate.

Rejecting The Word of The LORD is a reprobate mind.

Homosexuality can ONLY be cured by GOD through faith in The Messiah Yeshua for the forgiveness  of their sins, and turning to GOD, repenting of all their sins that they have committed, and obeying GOD and all His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.

Sin is violating any Law that is written in The Law of Moses.  NUMBERS 5.5-6, 1 JOHN 3.4

Homosexuality is a sin against GOD.  LEVITICUS 18.22, LEVITICUS 20.13

And that person will live through atonement in Messiah and repentance.  And the guilty putting an end to all their sins.  He or she will live and not die.

LEVITICUS 20.14  If a man takes a wife and her mother, or if a man marries both the woman and her mother, it is wickedness, The LORD says.  They shall be burnt with fire, both he and them that there be no wickedness among you, GOD says.

LEVITICUS 20.15-16  If a man lies with a beast, he shall be put to death, and the beast killed also.  If a woman approaches any beast to mate with it, both the woman and the beast shall be killed.

The Bible says, Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.  Meaning, turn to Messiah Yeshua for Atonement, and Repent by turning to THE LORD GOD, forsaking all your sins and living in obedience to all GOD’S Statutes that are written in The Law of Moses.  MATTHEW 3.2, EZEKIEL 18.21-24

LEVITICUS 20.17  If a man takes his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter for the purpose of sexual relations, it is a wicked thing, GOD says.  They shall be cut off in the sight of their people.  That is a death sentence handed down by GOD.

hell and destruction are before those who commit any of these abominations.

But Atonement and Repentance are available to everyone from The LORD GOD.  They are gifts from The LORD to choose life and live.

LEVITICUS 20.18  If a man lies with a woman, even his wife, having her menstrual period, both shall be cut off from their people.  Meaning, I believe, excommunicated, or banished from their people.

Many need to confess their sins to The LORD.  For GOD is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  And then go and sin no more.  1 John 1.9, John 8.11

LEVITICUS 20.19  You shall not have sexual relations with your mother’s sister or your father’s sister.  They shall bear their iniquity.

LEVITICUS 20.20  If a man lies with his uncle’s wife, they will bear their sin.  They will die childless.  The childless person’s line is thereby made extinct.

LEVITICUS 20.21  If a man takes his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing.  They shall be childless.

John The Baptizer was a Jewish man who lived by Torah, The Law of Moses.  And he told Herod, the Roman Governor of the Galilee, It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife for your wife.  MATTHEW 14.1-4

Most Jewish People, and I believe most Christians think that all the writers of The New Testament, and Jesus, and His Disciples and Apostles, and John The Baptist were all Christians.  They were not Christians.  They are all Jewish.  And they lived by Torah, The Law of Moses, except, I assume Judas Iscariot.

LEVITICUS 20.22  The first twenty-one verses of this Chapter are devoted to molech worship and sexual crimes, and the punishment prescribed by GOD for doing those abominations that GOD abhors and the people that do them.  Therefore, GOD says, You shall keep all My Statutes, and all My Judgments and do them that the land where I bring you to live in does not vomit you out.

This commandment, as all GOD’S Commandments, is for all humanity to do them.  Isaiah 43.10

The foundation of our teaching here at Beth Elohenu Messianic Congregation is belief in Messiah Yeshua for atonement.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS HA SHEM, GOD ALMIGHTY.  And obedience to all GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses in the first five books of The Bible.  And to know and believe that there is only ONE GOD.  AND YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS THAT ONE GOD.  YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD.  HE IS THE FATHER, THE SON, THE MESSIAH, THE SPIRIT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SO MUCH MORE.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS ELOHIM.

And after being in this Work for twenty years, I understand what Messiah means when He says, “Many are called but few are chosen.”  MATTHEW 22.14

Much of the world believe in GOD.  But few are chosen by GOD.  The few who are chosen believe in Messiah Yeshua for Atonement, and try their very best to obey all His Law of Moses.  They don’t reject it.  And the few who are chosen know and believe that there is only ONE GOD and Yeshua The Messiah is that ONE GOD.  The few don’t reject that either.  All the others who are called reject Biblical Truth in one form or another.  The called are invited by GOD, but the chosen are the elect of GOD, chosen for Eternal Life with THE LORD GOD in Heaven forever.

The few do and try to keep all GOD’S Statutes and Judgments.  The many don’t.  Thus many are called, but few are chosen.

LEVITICUS 20.23  All these sexual crimes, every one of them was committed by the Canaanites whom The LORD destroyed by the hand of the Children Of Israel because of all their abominations against The LORD GOD of Israel.

Do not walk in the manners of the Canaanites which I cast out before you, The LORD GOD says.  Therefore I abhorred them.

LEVITICUS 20.24  The Jewish People have been given the Land of Israel as an inheritance from GOD forever.

And GOD has separated the Jewish People from other people to be His.

No nuclear deal with Iran will ever change that.  The nations will disappear, but Israel and the Jewish People will remain before The LORD forever.  Along with all those non-Jewish People who are chosen.  Genesis 17.7-8, Isaiah 66.22, Matthew 22.14

LEVITICUS 20.25  Part of living for GOD is eating only those foods that are lawful.  And not eating anything that is unlawful.

Eating what is not lawful, GOD SAYS, will make your soul abominable to The LORD YOUR GOD.

To belong to THE LORD GOD and to be HIS,  separated from other people, You must live by all GOD’S Laws written in Torah.

Clean and unclean animals and birds are written in GOD’S Law in Leviticus 11, and Deuteronomy 14.

This Law and all GOD’S Laws stand forever.  They never change nor do they end.  Isaiah 40.8, 1 Peter 1.25.

The day is fast approaching when GOD will gather all the nations led by satan against Jerusalem to battle.

And GOD will destroy those nations because they thought to change GOD’S times and laws.

Because the nations have transgressed GOD’S Laws, changed His ordinances, and broken the everlasting Covenant; The Everlasting Word Of GOD.

Because the rulers of those nations take counsel together against THE LORD  and against His Anointed, The Messiah Yeshua to reject His teachings written in The Bible.

Therefore the curse will devour the earth and few will be left.

But Israel, The Jewish People, not all, and the non-Jewish People chosen by GOD will remain forever before The LORD throughout eternity in Heaven.   DANIEL 7.15-27, ISAIAH 24.4-6, PSALM 2

(DANIEL 7)  The Saints are the Jewish People.  Saint in Hebrew means Holy One.  VERSE 27  All Jewish People and Gentiles chosen by GOD will serve and obey THE LORD THEIR GOD, THE  MESSIAH YESHUA .  Along with those Gentiles who have blessed the Jewish People.  GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46

LEVITICUS 20.26  GOD commands His People to be Holy to The LORD for The LORD GOD IS HOLY.

And GOD has separated the Jewish People from other people to be His.  Along with the non-Jewish People who are Torah Observant and believe in The Jewish Messiah Yeshua.

Holy means being set apart, living by every Word, Law, and Statute of GOD written in The Bible, and having Atonement in Messiah Yeshua.  You have been separated by GOD from other people to be His.

LEVITICUS 20.27  The man or woman who has a familiar spirit that consults with the dead, or is a wizard who practices magic arts, and are sorcerers that deal with evil spirits will surely be put to death by GOD.  Unless they turn to The Messiah Yeshua for Atonement.  And repent and live by every Law, Teaching and Instruction of GOD written in The Law of Moses in the first five Books of The Bible.  They will surely live and not die.

Shalom.  Our teaching this morning will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses.

The title of our message is, MOLECH WORSHIP AND SEXUAL CRIMES.  And our teaching will come from Leviticus 20.1-10.

And with that said, let’s read Leviticus 20.1-10.

LEVITICUS 20.1  Please take note that The LORD GOD is speaking directly to Moses giving him all GOD’S Laws and Instruction that are written in Torah, The Law of Moses for Israel and all humanity to do.  The setting of The LORD speaking to Moses Face to face, if you can picture it, is in the Tabernacle, from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are upon the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies.  Exodus 25.21-22 and Exodus 33.11

And The LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

LEVITICUS 20.2-3  Whosoever of the Children Of Israel, or the strangers that live in Israel that give any of their children to Molech for sacrifice, they shall surely be put to death.  The people of the land shall stone him or her with stones.

Molech was a repulsive form of the Canaanite religion, a  detestable false god that was worshipped by means of child sacrifice, and associated with death and hell.

And GOD said, I will set Myself against that person who sacrifices his children to Molech and will cut him off from among his people.

The LORD GOD sentenced him to death because he gave his child for sacrifice to Molech to defile His Sanctuary, and profane His Holy Name.

Molech was among the many abominations that caused The LORD to drive the Canaanites out from their land to destroy them at the hand of the Children Of Israel.  GOD gave the land to the Jewish People for an everlasting possession when they came out from Egypt in the Exodus.  A land flowing with milk and honey, the glory of all lands.

The heavens belong to GOD, and the earth also.  As for the world and their fullness, GOD has founded them.  PSALM 89.11, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 89.12, EZEKIEL 20.6, GENISIS 17.7-8

It is thought that when GOD said He would cut off the guilty from among His People for sacrificing their children to Molech, He also meant that He would personally attend to the eventual extinction of their line.  Thus eliminating any thought that The GOD Of ISRAEL desires the sacrifice of children, or the imagination that any false god can bring salvation or atonement for sins.

The LORD IS GOD ALONE.  There are no others.  Beside Him there is no Savior.

Before the Children Of Israel conquered the land of Canaan, GOD commanded Israel to utterly destroy the Canaanites and their altars.  And break down their images, and cut down their groves where the images stood.  And burn them with fire.  DEUTERONOMY 7.1-6

LEVITICUS 20.4-5  If those who witnessed or knew of the crime of anybody sending their children to death by sacrificing them to Molech, and neglected their duty of notifying the Court of the Elders of Israel to have the criminal killed, The LORD said, I will set My Face against the guilty and against his family and will cut him off from among his people.  Both him and all who followed him to go a-whoring after Molech.  And his family was liable for punishment from The LORD GOD Himself if they were guilty.

LEVITICUS 20.6  Again, The LORD repeats the crime and sin of turning to those that have familiar spirits, and that seek after wizards to go a-whoring after them.  GOD again said, I will even set My Face against that soul and will cut him off from among his people.  GOD has sentenced them to death.

Those who have familiar spirits consult with the dead.  Wizards practice magic arts and are sorcerers who deal with evil spirits.  PROVERBS 5.22-23

The dead whom those with familiar spirits consult are not only dead, they were wicked, The Bible says.  They died because of their sins and iniquities.  Iniquity is evil.  Sinners reject GOD and violate His Law of Moses continually.  The dead had no atonement and are blotted out of GOD’s Book of Life.  1 John 3.4, Exodus 32.33, Revelation 20.15

The Righteous in HA SHEM THE MESSIAH never die.  PSALMS 17.15

Also, those with familiar spirits, and the person who is a wizard, GOD will also put to death, unless they repent.  LEVITICUS 20.27, EZEKIEL 18.20-24

Today, stoning a person to death because he or she has a familiar spirit, or because the person is a wizard would be a crime of murder.  But if the wizard or the one with a familiar spirit does not turn to THE LOD GOD THE MESSIAH for Atonement of their sins, and does not repent and live their life according to Torah, The Law of Moses, GOD HIMSELF will carry out the death sentence.

Atonement in Messiah Yeshua, and repentance are available to everybody. EZEKIEL 18.20-24

That’s why Messiah Yeshua said to a number of people, “Go and sin no more”.  Meaning, stop breaking The Law of Moses and live your life according to GOD’S Laws.  1 John 3.4, Numbers 5.5-6

As a point of information, when GOD speaks a Word, any Word that is written in The Bible, GOD’S Word is Law, and must be obeyed.  That is the Will of The Father in Heaven.

The One to seek counsel and advice from is The GOD OF ISRAEL, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  Seek The LORD in prayer.  Search The Bible for answers,  His counsel, and advice.  MATTHEW 11.28-30, MATTHEW 6.33, MATTHEW 7.7-8, MARK 11.24-26, JOHN 15.7, 16, 1 CHRONILES 28.9, PSALM 50.15, PSALM 86.5-7, PSALM 119.1-3, PSALM 145.18-19, ISAIAH 55.6-7, JEREMIAH 29.11-14

(John 15.16)  That fruit is obedience to GOD by obeying Torah, His Law of Moses.



HOW DO WE BECOME HOLY?  Verse 8 explains.


In Hebrew, My Statutes, that is GOD’S Statutes, is KHU’KO’TY.  GOD’S Statutes are His Laws.  And all GOD’s Statutes are written in His Law, The Law of Moses.

Thus we become Holy by having atonement through The Messiah Yeshua, and being obedient to all GOD’S Statutes as they are written in The Law Of Moses.

The Bible is written to everybody, to all humanity.  The Church teaches from The Bible in which GOD says, “You shall keep My Statutes, and do them.  I AM The LORD that sanctifies you.”

But the Church does not do them, nor does the Church teach them.

Keeping GOD’S Statutes is guarding His Laws in your heart.  Protecting them and keeping them.  Not allowing anyone to rob you of GOD’S Statutes that will cause you to forsake GOD.  David said to his son Solomon, “If you forsake GOD, He will cast you off forever.”  1 Chronicles 28.9

Most people, especially those outside of Judaism have no idea what The Law of Moses is, or what is written and taught in The Law of Moses in the first five books of The Bible.  Because the Church has been taught and told to ignore The Law of Moses.  It is not valid in Christian life, they say.

Let me say this, GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses are valid in Christian life and they are valid for every human being on earth.  GOD’S Law is valid today, yesterday, and forever.

GOD’S Laws are like GOD Himself.  They live forever, and must be obeyed forever.  Because the Bible says, “The Word of our GOD shall stand forever.”  And GOD’S Laws are His Word.  ISAIAH 40.8, and in The New Testament 1 Peter 1.25

(1 Peter 1.25)  The Torah, The Law of Moses, is an essential part of The Gospel, The Good News Of The Messiah Yeshua .

The New Testament teaches that Gentiles coming to The LORD through Messiah Yeshua should go to a Synagogue every Sabbath on Saturday to hear Moses taught.  That is to hear the Preaching of Moses from The Torah, The Law of Moses.

The Law of Moses is the GODLY TRUTH.  And Gentiles coming to The LORD through Messiah Yeshua must hear the Law Of Moses,  Learn GOD’S Laws,  And do them.  That is Biblical teaching.

The Law of Moses endures forever.  IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.  ACTS 15.21, ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.25

LEVITICUS 20.9  For everyone that curses his father or mother shall surely be put to death.  His blood shall be upon him.  I will repeat what Yeshua says, “Go and sin no more”.

LEVITICUS 20.10  Both parties to the crime of adultery are guilty of death.  Adultery is voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than his or her lawful spouse.  Both shall be put to death, The LORD GOD says.

Again, Yeshua said, “Go and sin no more.”  Seek The LORD, Messiah Yeshua for Atonement.  Repent by turning from all your sins that you have committed, and keep all GOD’S Statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, and you will surely live.  You will not die.  And GOD will forgive your iniquity, and remember your sin no more.  1 John 3.4, Jeremiah 31.31-34. Ezekiel 18.21-24

Every synagogue teaches The Torah, The Law of Moses.

The Church and a number of Messianic Congregations do not.  They teach that The Law of Moses is not valid today.  They teach that GOD’S Laws are not Lawful, nor are they legally binding.  The other religions are out of touch with The GOD of Israel, The GOD of The Bible.

Thus we have the world that we live in today.  Evil, wicked, and blind to what The GOD of Creation requires of them.  Because GOD’S Laws are not taught, there is no knowledge of GOD.  The fear of GOD is nonexistent.  And as a result, the world is lawless.

The Church teaches out of the Jewish Bible.

Many claiming Hebrew roots.  But the Church has some inane and stupid reasons for abolishing The Law of Moses, the first five Books of The Bible.

The Law of Moses has every Law and Instruction that GOD Almighty teaches for all mankind to live by.  Yet the Church has eliminated every one of GOD’S Laws making GOD’S Laws void in Christianity.

The Church teaches that man is not able to fulfill The Law of Moses.  Or The Law of Moses does not justify.  Or The Old Testament Laws were valid up until the cross.  Or Jesus fulfilled the ceremonial law by observing its rites.  And Jesus fulfilled the civil or judicial Laws by obeying the Roman law.  And Jesus fulfilled the moral law by perfectly obeying GOD’S Commandments by which obedience He became the sinner’s perfect righteousness for the broken Law.

The Church teaches that Jesus is the abolisher of the ceremonial law.  That Christ’s death on the cross abolished the ceremonial legislation.  The Church also teaches that The Law brings man into bondage.

Where is any of this stuff written in The Bible by its Jewish writers?

The Church also teaches that The Law puts man under the wrath of GOD.  That is correct, because those who will not obey GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses will eventually taste GOD’S wrath.

Eliminating GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses, and making GOD’S LAWS void is a ticket to having NO Salvation.

The Church teaches that by Christ’s death, all, I repeat all GOD’S LAWS that are written in The Law of Moses are taken away completely as valid instruments of worship.

The Church Does Not teach the way to Salvation.

The King James Bible writes in Revelation 22.14, “Blessed are they that do His Commandments (that is the entire Law of Moses) that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the City.”

Revelation was written some 60 years after Messiah”s death.

Adam and Eve did not have right to the tree of life because they disobeyed one Commandment of GOD.  The Church teaches disobedience to ALL The Commandments of GOD.  GENESIS 3.24

Jesus came 2,000 years ago for one special mission.  To give His Life for our Atonement.  Not to abolish The Law of Moses.  The jesus that abolished the Law of Moses is another jesus.  Certainly not The Jesus of the Bible.  2 Corinthians 11.3-4

The Church leaders need to reread and study The Bible from Genesis, and believe The LORD GOD, and Moses, and the Prophets.  And ask The LORD for wisdom and guidance, and know that GOD’S Law of Moses stands forever for all humanity to do including Christianity.  Isaiah 40.8.   And the Church leaders are exhorted to Repent, Ezekiel 18.20-24 and turn to GOD and learn His Laws and do them Acts 15.21.  And teach GOD”S Laws that are written in the Law of Moses to their flocks to live by for their good, and for the good of the Church.

Shalom.  Our teaching this morning will continue from Torah, The Law of Moses.

As a reminder, ALL GOD’S LAWS are written in The Law of Moses in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, the first five books of The Bible.

The Law of Moses contains only GOD’S Laws, His Teachings, His Instruction, and all His Statutes and Ordinances.

As a point of information, the Torah is called The Law of Moses because GOD gave all His Laws, Teachings, and Instruction to Moses Face to face for the Children of Israel to live by for their good.  Exodus 25.21-22, Exodus 33.11, Deuteronomy 10.12-13

And GOD Chose The Jewish People to be His Servant and His Witnesses to reveal all GOD’S Laws, Commandments, Statutes, Ordinances, Teachings, and Instruction to all the nations of the world, to do them for their good.

And the Jewish People accomplished GOD’S special mission  by writing them in the Bible from Genesis through Revelation.  Isaiah 43.10, Deuteronomy 7.6.


With that said, let’s read Leviticus 19.29-37.

LEVITICUS 19.29  The LORD commanded His People in The Law of Moses not to prostitute their daughter to cause her to be a whore lest the Land fall into fornication.  And the Land become full of wickedness.

LEVITICUS 19.30  The LORD said earlier in Verse 3 of this Chapter, “Keep My Sabbaths, I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.”  And again in this Verse, “You shall keep My Sabbaths.  I AM THE LORD.”

GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and instruction that are written in The Law of Moses are for all mankind.  Yes, for all mankind.

Who would argue with you that we should not prostitute our daughter to cause her to be a whore as it is written in The Law of Moses?  But the nations, other than Israel and Judaism turn away from GOD Almighty refusing to keep His Sabbaths as they are written in The Law of Moses.

The nations have their own man made sabbaths.  Not the Sabbaths of GOD.  Why?

And the world other than Judaism, reject GOD and His Commandment written in Verse 37, which reads, “Therefore you shall observe all My Statutes and all My Judgments and do them.  I AM The LORD.”

By not keeping GOD’S Sabbaths and rejecting His Laws, The LORD GOD laughs, The Bible says, and has them in derision.  GOD mocks them.  PSALM 2.1-5

The nations reject The Word of GOD and His Teachings and Laws that are spoken by The LORD GOD and His Anointed, His Messiah Yeshua.  He that sits in the Heavens shall laugh.  The LORD will have them in derision.  He mocks them.  And He ridicules them because of their disobedience to Him.

John writes in 1 John 5.3 that GOD’S Commandments are not difficult.  Keeping His Commandments is the love of GOD, John writes.

Why do people reject GOD’S Commandments?

GOD’s Sabbaths are all written in Leviticus Chapter 23 in The Law of Moses.

Saturday is the weekly Sabbath.  The first and seventh days of Passover are The LORD’S Sabbaths.  The Day of Pentecost is The LORD’S Sabbath.  A Memorial Of Blowing Of Shofars that Judaism calls Rosh Ha Shannah, The New Year, is a Sabbath of The LORD.  The Day Of Atonement, and the first and eighth days of The Feast Of Tabernacles are Sabbaths of The LORD.

How many nations in the world observe GOD’S Sabbaths?  Only one.  Israel.  Why is that?

Paul knowingly or unknowingly wrote in his letter to the Roman Gentile Believers in Messiah Yeshua GOD’S requirements for Salvation and Eternal Life.  ROMANS 9.1-5

In Verse 4, Paul writes, “Who are Israelites to whom pertain the adoption.

What does Paul mean that the Jewish People have been adopted by GOD?

Adoption means to take and use as one’s own.  GOD took the Jewish People to use as His own.  Adoption also means to take and care for and support the child, and raise the child in growth and development.  GOD has taken the Jewish People, and has cared for them, and supported them.  And He has raised the Jewish People in growth and development by His Laws, Teachings and Instruction.  Adoption also means to choose, to take by choice into a relationship.  GOD chose the Jewish People, and by choice took them into a relationship with Him.  Adoption also means to take a child voluntarily of other parents as one’s own child.  GOD voluntarily took the Jewish People out from the Gentiles to be His very own.  The Gentiles were, and many still are idol worshippers who believe in many gods.  And most Gentiles were, and most Gentiles still are a people who live by their own man made laws and not GOD’S Laws as written in The Law Of Moses.

GOD told Moses to say to Pharaoh, “Israel is My son, even My firstborn”.  EXODUS 4.22

GOD in adopting the Jewish People to be His own, has shown the world what He requires for Salvation, and Eternal Life, to be adopted by GOD along with the Jewish People.

Let’s look at ROMANS 9.4-5.

To be adopted by The LORD GOD of Creation with the Jewish People into GOD’S special and unique family, to receive the gift of eternal life, you must obey and live by GOD’S Law, The Law of Moses that GOD gave to the Jewish People.  You also must believe in GOD’S Anointed, The Messiah Yeshua, Who as concerning the flesh came from The Jewish People, to receive atonement for your sins.  Knowing that Messiah Yeshua is Jehovah, the Everlasting Father, The One GOD Who is over all, GOD blessed forever.  Isaiah 9.6, Hebrew Bible Isaiah 9.5, John 1.3, 1 John 3.4, Deuteronomy 6.4, Mark 12.29

In addition to being adopted by The LORD YOUR GOD, you will receive all GOD’S Covenants, and Promises, knowing how to serve The LORD GOD correctly.  And you are also adopted by the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

By receiving the Messiah Yeshua for atonement of your sins, and serving the  LORD GOD correctly in obedience to His Law Of Moses, you too are adopted into the special family of GOD.

That is the purpose of Messiah Yeshua’s teaching in John 4.22 that reads, “For Salvation is of the Jews.”

LEVITICUS 19.31  GOD in His Law commands us to turn away from those that have familiar spirits.  Familiar spirits are those who consult with the dead.

Neither seek after wizards, The LORD commands us.  Wizards practice magic arts and are sorcerers that deal with evil spirits.  Those with familiar spirits and wizards will defile you, GOD says.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.


DEUTERONOMY 18.9-10  The Lord commands His People that there shall not be found among you anyone that makes his son or daughter pass through fire.  Or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Divination is witchcraft.  Witchcraft is sorcery and magic.  Sorcery deals with evil spirits.

An observer of times practices magic.

An enchanter practices magic spells.

Witches are sorcerers who are thought to have supernatural powers given to them by evil spirits.

DEUTERONOMY 18.11  GOD also commands us in His Law Of Moses to avoid being a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or  wizards, or a necromancer.

A charmer is a medium that consults with the dead.

A wizard practices magic and sorcery.

A necromancer consults with the dead. Deals in magic, divination, and sorcery, and the practices of a witch.

DEUTERONOMY 18.12  These teachings are from GOD’S Law of Moses.  All those things are an abomination to The LORD.  And because of their abominations, The LORD GOD drove those people out of their land before the Children of Israel.

Let’s look at Genesis 15.1-21 because GOD’S power, and wisdom are beyond anything in the world, transcendent beyond our understanding.

GENESIS 15.1-21  Here we read that The LORD GOD has made a Covenant with Abram.  Some 800 years later GOD’S Words were fulfilled.  The Children Of Israel conquered Canaan, as GOD promised Abraham when the iniquity of the Amorites, who were the Canaanite nations, was full.  Their abomination was full and complete, and GOD cast them out.

DEUTERONOMY 18.13  This is also Instruction from The Law Of Moses.

GOD teaches, especially all who claim to be Children Of GOD, Believers in The Messiah Yeshua, You shall be perfect with The LORD YOUR GOD.

But how are we perfect with The LORD OUR GOD?  1 KINGS 8.61

Being perfect with The LORD OUR GOD is walking in His Statutes, and keeping His Commandments.  In a word, living your life according to The Law of Moses.

That is the goal of Messiah’s Words, “For Salvation is of the Jews.”

HEBREWS 13.20-21  Doing GOD’S will is living by His Law of Moses.  This is well-pleasing in the sight of GOD through Yeshua The Messiah.

PSALM 37.37  The end of the perfect man or woman is peace.  Meaning your future reward is peace.

DEUTERONOMY 18.14  The Land that The LORD GOD gave to the Jewish People to conquer and possess, and to inherit for an everlasting possession, whose borders extend to the Euphrates River in Iraq, and Syria were inhabited by the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.  GENESIS 15.18-21, EZEKIEL 20.6

All those nations did what the observers of times and diviners told them to do.  Therefore GOD kicked them out of their lands.  But for you Israel, The LORD commands, your GOD does not allow you to do these abominations.

LEVITICUS 19.31  You shall rise up before the elderly, and honor the old person.  And fear your GOD.  I AM THE LORD.

This is Law from The LORD OUR GOD in The Law of Moses.


GOD commands the Jewish People not to vex the stranger that lives among you.  That is, do the stranger no wrong, nor violate him or her.  But the stranger that lives among you, GOD commands, shall be to you as one born among you.  You shall treat the stranger with the same decency and respect as you expect for yourself.  And you shall love the stranger as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LEVITICUS 19.35-36  The LORD also teaches Honesty and Righteousness in His Law of Moses.

You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment.  Everything you do, or decide, or decree must be according to Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses.  In measuring in weight, in measuring of liquids.  All must be honest according to Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses.

Just balances are honest weights on scales, and honest weights in stonework.  A just ephah is an honest weight in measuring grain.  And a just hin is an honest liquid measure.

In a word, Honesty.  Be honest in all that you do, GOD commands in His Law of Moses.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, The LORD says, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

Why are so many people taught to reject The Law Of Moses?

LEVITICUS 19.37  Therefore GOD commands that you shall observe all My Statutes, and ALL My Judgments, and do them.  I

Why do so many people reject the teaching of THE LORD GOD?  Ask your teachers.

Paul asked the question, Is GOD The GOD of the Jews only?  Is He not also The GOD of the Gentiles also?  ROMANS 3.29-31

Yes, in this teaching of Paul, Paul teaches that Gentiles, non-Jewish people should establish The Law of Moses as a permanent part of their life.  That is GOD’S Law of Moses written in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

But so few listen to GOD.  So few do what GOD says.  And so few teach The Truth Of GOD.  So many have abolished GOD’S Laws that are Perfect and True.  A Law that teaches Love.  And they are Life to those who do them.

Shalom.  Our teaching today will continue in Torah, The Law of Moses.  And GOD’S  Laws that will be taught this morning are from Leviticus 19.16-28.  And the title of our message is, MORE LAWS TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTION FROM TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

As a reminder, all GOD’S Laws, Teachings, and Instruction for Israel and all mankind are written in The Law of Moses.

GOD’S Laws are The Law Of Moses.

 And The Law of Moses is written in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.  The first five books of The Bible.

And with that said, let’s read Leviticus 19.16-28.

LEVITICUS 19.16  A talebearer spreads false rumors.  A talebearer is also called a scandal-monger.  GOD’S Commandment is, Do not spread false rumors to have unjust charges brought against a person.  That is a talebearer who attacks the name and reputation of an individual.

Another Commandment from The LORD GOD is, Do not stand aside while someone’s blood is being shed when the person’s life is in danger.  I AM THE LORD, GOD SAYS.

LEVITICUS 19.17  You shall not hate your brother in your heart.

The Hebrew word for brother is AKH meaning, your brother, and also a family relation by birth or marriage.  Thus, The LORD GOD commands us not to hate anyone in our family.

Also, You shall rebuke your neighbor, but incur no sin because of him.  That is, you shall correct your neighbor and do not bring upon yourself sin because you might harbor hatred in your heart because he has wronged you.

Because someone has wronged you, do not keep that resentment and anger inside.  But rather inform the person of his or her wrong action lest your bottled up hatred results in your sin.  Carrying such grudges result ultimately in vengeance which is returning hate for hate, evil for evil.  And that is ungodly and wrong.  And that is a Commandment from The LORD YOUR GOD.

LEVITICUS 19.18  Do not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people.  Vengeance also means punishing the wrong doer.  GOD says, Don’t do it.  Don’t even carry a grudge.  A grudge is staying angry.  Even cherishing your anger.  Don’t do it, GOD COMMANDS.

But you shall love your neighbor as yourself.  I AM THE LORD, THE LORD GOD SAYS.

The Messiah Yeshua was asked, Who is our neighbor?  His answer is in LUKE 10.25-37

(LUKE 10.25-28)  Loving The LORD YOUR GOD with all your heart is obeying Him.  Every Word, Law, Teaching, and Instruction that is written in Torah, The Law of Moses.  This do, Messiah said, and you will live.  EXODUS 20.6, DEUTERONOMY 7.9, JOHN 14.15-17

(LUKE 10.29-37)  Your neighbor is any and every human being whom you meet.

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  I AM THE LORD.  And that Commandment is from The LORD YOUR GOD.

1)  When you love your neighbor as yourself, you also love yourself.  Not in a proud and arrogant way, but in a good way.

2)  When you love your neighbor as yourself when dealing with people according to Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses, you make The Law perfect in your life.  ROMANS 13.9-10

When you love your neighbor as yourself, you will treat that person with love and respect.  When you love your neighbor as yourself, you are making The Law of Moses perfect.

GALATIANS 5.14  For all The Law is fulfilled in one word.  The word fulfilled comes from the Greek word PLEROO meaning PERFECT.

Thus, all The Law is made perfect when you love your neighbor as yourself.

JAMES 2.8  If you fulfill the Royal Law.  The word fulfill comes from the Greek word TELEO meaning EXECUTE OR PERFORM.  When you Perform the Royal Law, which is The Law of Moses, according to The Scriptures, you shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well.

Not only should we love our neighbor as ourself, we should also love The LORD OUR GOD as we love our self.  Proving it by obeying all His Laws, Teachings, and Instruction that are written in The Law of Moses.  That is obeying Torah to perfection.

LEVITICUS 19.19  You shall keep My Statutes, THE LORD COMMANDS US.  My Statutes in Hebrew is KHU’KO’TY meaning GOD’S Laws.  Keeping GOD’S Statutes means Holding on to His Laws.  Retaining them permanently and forever in your heart and mind.  In your walk and in your life.  Living by GOD’S Laws always and continually.  That is The Commandment of The LORD YOUR GOD Who is Messiah Yeshua.

You shall not let your cattle mate with a different kind of animal.  You shall not plant your field with mixed seed.

Neither shall a garment mingled with linen and wool come upon you.  The correct translation is, You shall not put on cloth from a mixture of two kinds of material.  THAT IS THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LEVITICUS 19.20-22  Betrothed to a husband means she was designated to another man for marriage.  Not at all redeemed means she has not been released by the man she is engaged to.  And scourged is not being scourged but properly examined.

Thus she was examined.  He brought a trespass offering to The Tabernacle or Temple, and the Priest made atonement for him, and his sin was forgiven.

The Law says the adulterer should be put to death.  LEVITICUS 20.10, DEUTERONOMY 22.22

But Yeshua The Messiah said to the woman who was taken in adultery, “Go and sin no more.”  JOHN 8.1-11

Was Yeshua against His own Law that He gave to Moses Face to face?  Exodus 25.21-22.  Absolutely not.  Yeshua never did away with any of His Laws.  All His Laws are The Law of Moses.

My understanding of The Messiah Yeshua saying to the woman taken in adultery, “Go and sin no more,” rather than having her put to death is this.  Yeshua The Messiah is The Anointed One with a special mission from GOD, although Messiah Himself is GOD.  And that special mission from GOD 2,000 years ago was for Messiah to be our Atonement through His sacrificial death on a Roman cross. JEREMIAH 31.31-34

And that’s what Messiah did for the woman taken in adultery.  He forgave her sin even before He gave His Life.  Only GOD can forgive sin.  Yeshua said to her, “Neither do I condemn you.  Go and sin no more.”  That is to say, Do not violate Torah, The Law of Moses.  That is sin.  1 John 3.4.  Do not commit adultery ever again.  Go and sin no more or else you will die according to Law.

The woman’s next move was to repent.  Repentance is turning from our sins of breaking GOD’S Law of Moses, to keeping GOD’S Law of Moses.

All who have atonement in Messiah Yeshua must repent.  However, The Lord says, But when the righteous turns away from his righteousness, that is, should the person returns to a life of sin, will he live?  The Lord says? No.  He shall die.  That applies to the woman taken in adultery, and that applies to everyone.  EZEKIEL 18.21-24

When we fall from time to time, we have the privilege of repentance.  And GOD will forgive us.  But if sin becomes a habit, GOD will deal with us.  Remember what Yeshua said to the lawyer about eternal life and keeping The Law Of Moses.  “This do, and you shall live.”  Luke 10.28

LEVITICUS 19.23-25  When a fruit tree is planted in the Land Of Israel, and even in our own back yard, the fruit of the tree is counted as uncircumcised.  That is, off limits and forbidden for use.  And the fruit shall not be eaten for three years.  But in the fourth year, the fruit is Holy to Praise The LORD.  And in the fifth year the fruit may be eaten that its yield to you will be increased.  I AM THE LORD, THE LORD GOD SAYS.

LEVITICUS 19.26  You shall not eat anything with its blood.

Neither shall you use enchantment, nor observe times.

Enchantment is magic.  Observing times is sorcery and magic.  They are an abomination to The LORD.  And that Commandment is from GOD.

LEVITICUS 19.27  You shall not round the corners of your head.  Meaning, you shall not shave the corners of your head.  Nor shall you shave the corners of your beard.  That is a Commandment of THE LORD YOUR GOD.

LEVITICUS 19.28  Do not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, The LORD commands.  Apparently that was a pagan ritual.

Nor shall you put any tattoos on yourself.  I AM The LORD, THE LORD GOD SAYS.

What about those who have tattooed themselves and now live for GOD according to GOD’S Laws, Teachings and Instruction that are written in The Law of Moses?

I would say to you, your sins are forgiven in Messiah Yeshua.  Repent, and confess your sin to The LORD, for He is faithful and just to forgive you your sin, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1.9

Since it is a painful procedure to remove tattoos, I doubt that The LORD would have you go through such pain.  But as Yeshua says to all of us, “Go, and sin no more.”

Let’s look at REVELATION 19.16.  Those are not tattoos but writings on His clothing, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

As John wrote in 1 John 5.3, GOD’S Commandments, that is the entire Law of Moses, are not difficult.

And as Yeshua said to the lawyer when He asked him, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?  Messiah asked him, “What is written in The Law Of Moses?  “This do,” Messiah said, “And you shall live.”
