Do you believe that some of God’s Word does not apply to His people? If so, you believe the biggest lie ever told to mankind. It is an even bigger lie than the serpent telling Eve that she and Adam could become like gods. The lie that God’s Words were done away with is exactly how people begin to believe that they are gods!
The lie began with the False Prophet Spirit that entered the Israelite Church in the early centuries after Yeshua/Jesus’ ascension. The False Prophet Spirit grew in the Israelite Church until the people believed that the False Prophet Spirit was the true spirit. The Roman emperor Constantine was successful in creating the universal Catholic church because people were ready to believe the lie about God’s Words in the Old Testament.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity [lawlessness] doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
Satan, the False Prophet Spirit has used ministers of the Gospel to teach the greatest lie that was ever told to mankind ever since. It is a bigger lie than the one he told to Eve in the Garden. Even after the first lie there was hope for all mankind to be reunified with God. But, this second great lie seeks to remove all hope of complete restoration with God, which is Satan’s goal.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Ministers with the same false spirit as the Jews that Yeshua/Jesus teach the greatest lie of their father, the devil, that has ever been told and the people believe it. Yeshua told the Jewish leaders:
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Why did the people believe the lie that some of the scripture was done away? They believed the lie because they wanted to believe the “mystery of iniquity (lawlessness) that already existed.
2 Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
The False Spirit was already at work leading Believers astray. God would allow this to continue until the harvest was ripe, then the False Spirit would no longer be just a Spirit within the Church, but would be given physical form.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
Revelation 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe [emphasis mine].
When the time is ripe, the lying False Spirit will become an actual physical man called the Antichrist. He will teach believers that if they worship him they will become as “gods”. In fact, that is Judaism’s and the Kabbalah’s teaching! Judaism teaches the same lie today that Satan speaking from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil spoke from. Through 2,000 years of history, the Antichrist spirit has been just that – a spirit that works in the minds of Believers to maintain belief in the greatest lie ever told. But, one day, that False Spirit will appear as a man, a serpent in human form!
2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him [the False Spirit in physical form], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
The greatest lie every told is a lie that is so destructive that its damage is immeasurable. This lie says that some of God’s Word is dead, done away. If this is so, then there goes our hope of salvation because it is this “dead” Word’s promises that Yeshua/Jesus came to earth to fulfill.
Most Believers will deny that this is what they believe, yet they refuse the foundation upon which the Bible is based. Believers accept part of God’s Word, but refuse other parts because they have been taught that some of God’s Word “died” on the Cross.
What part of the Bible have Christian Believers refused for almost 2,000 years? The Torah, or what is commonly called The Law, has been singled out for demise. The Torah is the first five books of the Bible. It is only this section of the Bible that Christians refuse. The other Writings and the Prophets are accepted. The Prophets are especially respected by Christians because of the end times prophecies. Christians do not realize that The Torah is richer in prophecy than any other book of the Bible. So, it is The Torah, the first five books of the Bible that Christians view as a dusty, old and irrelevant set of grievous and burdensome laws that were nailed to the Cross and made obsolete by Yeshua/Jesus.
Atheists believe that God is dead, but God’s own people believe that a part of His Word is dead. These two outlooks have the same result – they kill God. He is killed by the belief that His Word is dead because God IS His Word. These same Believers do not probe the mystery that lies before them to inquire further into what John meant in the first verses of his Gospel.
God’s Word existed before the foundation of the earth. What Word existed before the foundation of the earth? Yeshua/Jesus.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Yeshua/Jesus is that Word John spoke of and that Word is The Torah. At the time of John’s writing, the common vernacular usage of the Jews for The Torah was “The Word”. John specifically referred to The Torah when he wrote this passage.
Yeshua/Jesus is the same Word/Torah that stood in the Garden. He IS The Torah and The Torah IS the Tree of Life that stood in the Garden of Eden.
Proverbs 3:1 My son, forget not my law [The Torah]; but let thine heart keep my commandments [The Torah]:
Proverbs 3:18 She [The Torah] is a tree of life [emphasis mine] to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
The Torah was in the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve ate freely of its fruit. After their sin, they were no longer allowed to eat from the Tree. They were removed from the Garden to protect the integrity of the Tree of Life until a means to return to the privilege of eating from the Tree was instituted by God. The means that was instituted by God was the sacrificed “Blood of the Lamb.
This point cannot be emphasized enough: The Tree of Life, which is The Torah, was Yeshua/Jesus. These three are one and the same being. And all three are living – these are alive. Yeshua/Jesus was there in the Garden with Adam and Eve. He walked with them and talked with them. Anytime there is a face to face encounter with God, it is Yeshua/Jesus with whom the encounter takes place.
God, Yeshua/Jesus, needed a way to re-institute His Son and Tree of Life/Torah on the earth. It was for this purpose that God created the Covenant with Abraham. But, Abraham’s descendants broke the Covenant. For this reason, God provided a “new” Covenant.
Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Christians interpret this scripture as saying that the Old Covenant has passed away, but God is actually saying is that the old approach to the Covenant is passed. Now, the Covenant is no longer kept by our own efforts. We have the Living Holy Spirit of God living within us so that our obedience to the Covenant, The Torah, will become reality.
Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Yeshua/Jesus is The Torah and is the Tree of Life that was in the Garden. Yeshua/Jesus and The Torah and The Tree of Life are synonymous with each other. These three cannot be separated from each other. These three are the basis of the promised Covenant that God gave to Abraham. The Covenant, of which there is only one, came to the people of the earth in stages after Adam and Eve removed themselves from it by their disobedience to it.
What was the result of the disobedience of Adam and Eve? God told them they could eat of any tree in the Garden, but they were not to eat of the fruit of the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”.
Let us look at “Good and Evil”. Satan told Eve that this prohibition had to do with God not wanting man to become as God was – divine and having knowledge of all things.
Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
The nature of the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” was that it mixed good and evil together; it mixed truth with lies. This was Satan’s inroad to causing confusion about the “good”.
Satan causes a little bit of truth to be mixed in with lies. People see these little bits of truth and reason that everything in the mixture must also be the truth. The “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” is Satan’s primary weapon against God in the war that is still going on between Satan and God.
The reason this works so well is that the minds of humans are deceitful by nature because of the fall of Adam and Eve. The minds of all humans became a mixture of “good and evil”. God’s mind and His Words are pure truth, not a mixed truth. This mixture clouds our ability to reason correctly about God’s truth.
There is no mixture of good and evil in any of God’s Word. There is only truth in God’s Word. No evil exists in God’s Word. This includes The Torah. There is no hope of salvation if this is not true because we have to rely on God’s Word to guide us safely into our eternal life.
The first stage of God’s reunification of mankind with Him was in His promise to Abraham that Abraham’s seed would bring the living Torah/Yeshua/Jesus/The Tree of Life that was lost in the Garden of Eden back to the earth. This first stage of redemption became known as “The Covenant”.
Genesis 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
This was the stage that began the reestablishing of the Tree of Life back to its place on the earth. The sign of this first stage was circumcision of the flesh.
The second stage was the revealing of the contents and concepts of The Torah/Tree of Life at Mount Sinai. The Torah was given to the mixed multitude of Hebrews and Gentiles, who became known collectively as the Children of Israel. This was for those who stood at Mount Sinai and for all those who would come afterward to the very end of time.
Deuteronomy 29:14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
15 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:
Paul, whose words have been twisted with lies, understood this. He wrote:
1 Corinthians 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
Paul’s exhortation to the re-“New”-ed Covenant Believers was for them to view themselves as the direct descendants of the generation that stood at Mount Sinai. He knew that the giver of The Torah at Mount Sinai was the same One who dwelt in a human body that was crucified and resurrected, and that believing in Him gave us the same status as those who were at Mount Sinai, many of whom were not the physical seed of Abraham. But these became the seed of Abraham because they stood with the Hebrews at Mount Sinai and were called the Children of Israel. Israel is Abraham’s seed!
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
The third stage in the Covenant process was for Yeshua/Jesus to live among us as The Torah/Tree of Life.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, [emphasis mine] (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
The fourth and last stage in reestablishing the Tree of Life/Torah to all of the inhabitants of the earth is in the coming Messianic reign of Yeshua/Jesus.
Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways [emphasis mine], and we will walk in his paths [emphasis mine]: for out of Zion shall go forth THE LAW [emphasis mine], and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life [emphasis mine], which bare twelve manner of fruits [representing the 12 Tribes of the Children of Israel], and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Once the Tree of Life/Torah/Yeshua/Jesus is completely restored to the earth, it will never again be violated or removed. The great deceiver, Satan, will be gone forever and the people of the earth will once again be taught The Torah.
At that time, God’s Kingdom will be filled with His people who, while alive on earth, walked in His Ways and in His Paths and who did not reject His Tree of Life/Torah/Yeshua/Jesus. These will be people who delighted in His Torah (Psalms 1:2) and who did not view His Torah as grievous (1 John 5:3).
Any religion or lifestyle that does not have The Torah as its basis is a religion or a lifestyle that mixes good and evil because it partakes of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Therefore, that religion is of Satan. Every time a Believer rejects The Torah as the guiding light of his lifestyle, he is committing the same sin as Adam and Eve. The original sin, then, is the mixing of God’s truths with Satan’s lies.
Traditional Christianity has mixed Satan’s pagan rituals and symbols with God’s starting almost immediately after Yeshua/Jesus’ ascension. In fact, traditional Christianity threw out many of God’s rituals and holy days in favor of Satan’s pagan days and removed the signs of the only Covenant that God gave. This Covenant began in Genesis and will end with the completion of Revelations. There are not two Covenants, but one built with stages.
What are Satan’s pagan ways that are accepted in traditional Christianity? The three most common are the teaching that Sunday is the Sabbath, Christmas and Easter.
What are the signs of the Covenant that were removed? The true Sabbath, which is the 7th day from sundown to sundown, God’s Holy Feasts (Passover, Firstfruits, Unleavened Bread, Shavuot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot), and the dietary laws.
Our worship of God is to happen in a spirit of truth. The guidelines for this kind of worship are only found in The Torah. Any other kind or worship – that brings in the trappings and symbols of anything other than what God specified in the Torah – is an abomination to God.
We are to repent of our delusion and stop believing the lie that some of God’s Word is dead so that He can reveal the truth of ALL scriptures, including The Torah, to us. The Torah is instruction to us about the lifestyle God expects us to live for this is how the light of God is shed abroad in the world. Where there is darkness, light does not exist.
