Deuteronomy 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams that gives you a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, but then he speaks to you saying, “Let us go after other gods which you have not known and let us serve them”;
3 You shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proves you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 You shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cleave to him.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he has spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which the LORD your God commanded you to walk in. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.
Have you ever heard a preacher say that Jesus abolished the law? That Christians are under grace, not under the law? That the law was nailed to the cross with Jesus? Or that you “can’t put God in a box”? If so, you have heard from a FALSE PROPHET preaching about a false Messiah.
One of the ways that we leave the LORD of the Bible to walk after other gods is by not keeping ALL of His Commandments (Deuteronomy 13:4), including the Sabbath, the Feasts and the dietary laws. When we adhere to the teaching of one who tells us not to keep ALL of the Commandments, we are listening to a false prophet.
According to the definition of a false prophet in Deuteronomy 13, Jesus is also a false prophet and cannot be your Messiah. Jesus cannot be your Messiah if he abolished the very sacrificial system that He sought to fulfill and perfect, and under which you are to be saved.
The Church has had 2,000 years of this false message. Yet, few have challenged the premise of it. A savior that voids the law that He is fulfilling is no savior. A prophet that says people do not have to follow the laws given by their own LORD is a false prophet according to the same Bible these false prophets use to show the law is void.
The first duty of a true prophet is to lead the people back to the lifestyle given that sets God’s people apart from the world and that makes us holy (sanctified, set apart). Only AFTER the prophet has done this can his forecasts, miracles, signs and wonders be deemed valid.
Deuteronomy 18:22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: you will not be afraid of him.
What is the lifestyle that God said sanctifies His people and sets them apart from the world? It is found in the Law. Hebrews call it “Torah”. The word TORAH is actually an acronym meaning “loving instruction from a Father to His children”. Yes, the pure language God gave, Hebrew, is a language of acronyms. Modern America did not invent the acronym.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Again, a false prophet teaches the Law is abolished. How do we know that Jesus/Yeshua did not abolish the law? By looking at what He did and said about the matter. The test of Jesus/Yeshua’s claim about being the Messiah was whether He was sinless at the time of His crucifixion. We know He was because the Bible says He kept the Law perfectly. He is the Lamb without spot or blemish according to all that is required in the Law for remission of sins UNDER THE LAW! When you were saved, you accepted the sacrifice OF THE LAW!
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he has made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Third, Jesus/ Yeshua said:
Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill [or perfect].
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Preachers quote many New Testament scriptures as evidence that the law is passed away. The book of Hebrews contains many of their favorites. Let us see whether the book of Hebrews really teaches that the Law is passed away.
Hebrews 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
Notice that the word “covenant” is italicized in your Bible. That means it was added into the text by English translators who wanted you to believe God abolished His own law. Removing the word “covenant” leaves us with a conundrum. What is the “first” that is spoken of? It is that first generation of people who God delivered from Egypt. Read verse 8.
8 For finding fault with them, He said, Behold, the days come, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
The word “them” always indicates people. It never means “covenant”. The New Testament testifies of the Old; it does not nullify the old. So when you see a man performing miracles, signs and wonders whose miracles, signs, wonders and prophecies occur, but he also teaches that Jesus/Yeshua abolished the Torah, you will know that man is a false prophet. The truth of a prophet is not in whether or not what he says and does comes to pass, but whether he leads you away from God by leading you away from God’s Word as it says in Deuteronomy 13. This, my brethren, is the acid test of prophet!
The New Testament says that Jesus/Yeshua is the “Word made flesh”. What Word? The only “Word” the Jews had was the Tanak – the Law, Writings and the Prophets. In particular, “the Word” in Hebrew culture meant the Torah. When a Hebrew spoke of the Word, he was using a synonym for the Torah – the Law. So, Jesus/Yeshua is the Torah/Law made flesh. This means that Jesus/Yeshua’s DNA is the letters and the jots and tittles of every word of the Torah/Law.
Would someone, then, please explain how it is possible that He died and lives again, but His DNA does not? His Torah/Law does not?
