“You therefore, my beloved, seeing that you know these things beforehand, beware, lest you follow the error of those WITHOUT TORAH, and FALL from your own steadfastness.
“Kefa, PETER, said that.
Sin IS BREAKING TORAH”! 1 Jo 3:4
Just before this, Peter said this:
“in all his [Sha’ul/Paul’s] letters he speaks concerning these matters, in which there are certain things so hard to be understood that those who are ignorant and unstable TWIST their meaning, as they do also the OTHER SCRIPTURES, to their own DESTRUCTION.
“You are living in the LAST days, and times are VERY confusing.
People are not only abrogating the Torah, but now our society is abrogating the whole WORD OF GOD altogether!
And that is a RESULT of the believing community not HOLDING FAST to the teachings of SCRIPTURE.
ALL of SCRIPTURE.
People today think that a “New Testament” life is one bereft of HIS COMMANDS.
The ONLY ‘visible’ difference between those of us who walk a Messianic Peshitta walk and other believers is the DAYS we assemble to honor G-d and worship Him, and the fact that we eat what HE calls “food”. These are the EASY matters of His Word: but, THEY ARE RIGHT to do! Because HE said “do not worship me as the pagans worship their gods”.
If you TRULY believe in Yeshua, the Son of G-d, you ARE a Torah keeper; you just struggle with it, because you don’t do the easy part of it. “He who is faithful with little is also faithful with much; and he who is dishonest with little is also dishonest with much.” and “you have overlooked the MORE IMPORTANT matters of the TORAH, such as justice, compassion, and absolute trust. These were necessary for you to have done [justice, compassion, and absolute trust] , WITHOUT having left the others [the easy things of Torah] undone.
“If you are living outside the Word of G-d altogether, you may be ‘happy’ indeed. But, you are on a very broad road with a lot of happy people, who will find misery in the end.
You were CREATED.
There IS a right and wrong apart from your ‘feelings’.
This world is doing everything it can to deceive and DESTROY your soul.
Yeshua, the man of Nazareth, the Son of G-d, died to set you FREE from SIN, and ROSE from the dead to PROVE that He IS the Son of G-d; TRUST in THAT is ‘salvation’. Rescuing you from your pernicious nature to ‘do your own thing’, to ‘follow a crowd into error’, and from your inability to be ‘right’ in His sight. In fact, you do not desire to be right in HIS sight, but in your own. You love your sin [whatever your pet sin is]. You need to be rescued from that path of self destruction. And from the deceit of ‘religion’, manmade junk that distracts you from your black heart’s need for TRUTH. You just don’t know it yet.
A judgment IS coming. Yeshua will return, when mankind ‘thinks’ he has vanquished Yeshua, ‘unified’ “humanity” in a false bliss, and sets out to destroy the very few left who love G-d in TRUTH. Xtianity, Islam, all faiths, will ‘unify’ to try to destroy His People. The drumbeat of it is ringing loud already, but many do not ‘hear’ it.
Blessed are You, O יהוה our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has given us the way of Salvation in Messiah Yeshua.
And HaDavar became a Body and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, a glory like that of the first-born of Ha’Av, full of compassion and truth. For He who did not know sin, for our sakes He became a Khatat, that we may through Him be made the tzedaka of Elohim. (Yokhanan 1:14, Korinti’im Bet 5:21)
And you also are familiar with the news which was published throughout Y’hudah, which sprang from the Galil, after the immersion declared by Yokhanan, concerning Yeshua from Natzrat, whom Elohim anointed with The Ru’akh HaKodesh and with power, and who, because Elohim was with Him, went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by evil. (Ma’asei HaShlikhim 10:37-38)
They found Him in the Heikhal, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all those who heard Him were amazed at His wisdom and His answers. (Luka 2:46-47)
He taught on Shabbat in their Beit K’nessets. And they were amazed at His teaching; for He taught them as one with authority. And Yeshua travelled in all the cities and villages, teaching in their Beit K’nessets, and declaring B’sorat HaMalkhut, and healing every kind of sickness and disease. Yeshua said to them, “Allow the little children to come to Me, and do not stop them, for Malkhut HaShamayim is for such as these.” When Yeshua saw the multitudes, He had mercy on them, because they were tired out and scattered, like sheep which have no shepherd. (Yokhanan Markos 1:21-22, Matai 9:36)
He had no form nor comeliness that we should look upon Him, nor beauty that we should delight in Him. He was despised, and forsaken of men, a man of pains, and acquainted with sorrows, and as one from whom men hide their faces: He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Surely our sickness He did bear, and our pains he carried; whereas we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of Elohim, and afflicted. But He was wounded because of our transgressions, He was broken because of our iniquities: the chastisement of our shalom was upon Him, and with His stripes we were healed. All we like sheep did go astray, we turned every one to his own way; and יהוה has made to light on Him the iniquity of us all. (Yesha-Yahu 53:2-6)
And you, who once were dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has granted to live with Him, and He has forgiven you all your sins; and by His mitzvot He cancelled the written record of our sins, which stood against us; and He took it out of the way, nailing it to His stake; and by putting off His mortal body, He exposed the powers of evil, and through His nature put them openly to shame. (Kolosim 2:13-15)
Mashi’akh died for our sins according to the scriptures; and He was buried, and He rose again on the third day according to the scriptures. And now we know Mashi’akh is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have died. And thanks be to Elohim, who has given us the victory through Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh! (Korinti’im Alef 15:3,20,57)Blessed are You, O יהוה our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has given us Messiah Yeshua, our KING!
