I just got this in an email and just had to share it. Enjoy reading!
Just received the Good News !!! We’re not under the Law anymore … we can now make carved images and forget about the Sabbath, we can now steal and murder, commit adultery, bear false witness against our neighbour, covet our neighbour’s wife, his house, ox and donkey.
Let it not be. If the Law is done away with, why do we find YAHushua (Jesus) teaching the Torah after the second coming in the new millennium ?
Isaiah 2: 2-3
And it shall be in the latter days that the mountain of the House of YAHveh is established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it. And many peoples shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YAHveh, to the House of the Elohim of Ya?aqob_, and let Him teach us His ways, and let us walk in His paths, for out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah, and the Word of YAHveh from Yerushalayim.”
It amazes me sometimes how Christians distanced themselves from our Father’s Word … it’s as if it doesn’t exist, it’s as if He never spoke to Moses.
It was during the time of the disciples / apostles of YAHushua (40/60 AD) that the first deception started. Some Jews portrayed Sha’ul (Paul) as being against the Torah and judged him accordingly. They believed he said that the law was nailed to the cross, that he did not fulfil or keep the Torah anymore. He never said that, Sha’ul (Paul) was being misinterpreted.
Peter said in Acts 5: 29 that “We have to obey Elohim rather than men.” Therefore, your first loyalty and responsibility should be to YAHveh’s kingdom. If you ignore the heavenly ‘constitution’ and dismiss it as ‘outdated’ and as ‘not applicable’, and you nail it to the “cross”, you actually reject the culture and governing rules that YAHushua says He will establish in His future kingdom and in YAHveh’s eternal kingdom.
YAHushua did not come to establish a new faith or religion or to make a new covenant with gentiles. He never once in Scripture made a covenant with gentiles, only with “converted” Israel and with “converted” gentiles, thus with grafted-in Israel. YAHushua renewed His new covenant with Israel through His own blood, in his capacity as the final Sacrificial Lamb of YAHveh.
Please note, born-again Christians who deliberately disregard the Torah because they believe the law is not applicable to them and because they are supposedly no longer under the Law – because it was nailed to the cross – their prayers are an abomination before YAHveh. Do yourself a favour and read the beautiful Proverbs 28:9 – it is not I who says so, it’s your Creator – your prayers are an abomination because you disregard His Torah.
