The Old Switcheroo

“Why do your Talmidim disregard the customs of the elders, and they do not wash their hands when they eat food?”

Yeshua answered and said to them, “Why do you also disregard the COMMANDMENT of Elohim on account of YOUR custom?”

That one verse tells us something about the Messiah: HE SUPPORTS THE TORAH!

One today might ask Yeshua :

“Why do your talmidim disregard the customs of the popes? They do not observe the Sunday “sabbath,” but rather keep the SEVENTH DAY SABBATH”?….

“Why do your talmidim disregard the customs of the popes? They observe Passover rather than Easter…”

“Why do your talmidim disregard the customs of the popes? They observe Sukkot rather than Christmas…”

Yeshua answers ALL of these questions in the SAME WAY:

“Why do YOU DISREGARD the COMMANDMENT of Elohim on account of YOUR custom?”

Believers today LOVE to chide the Jewish people for their unbelief, but do no see that they themselves do not follow G-d in the most basic ways that He set down for us to approach Him.

When Yeshua said these words, there was no such thing as “sunday church,” or “christian easter,” or christian “christmas.” Those were pagan days already observed by heathens, and the names of the days were simply changed when Christianity was invented.

He further said, “You have rendered USELESS the WORD OF GOD for the sake of YOUR customs.”

We do NOT find ‘sunday church’, ‘christmas’, or ‘easter’ IN THE WORD OF GOD.

This is the MESSIAH speaking. “HEAR HIM!”

“You are hypocrites! Isaiah said well of you all, “This people honors me with their lips, but their HEART is FAR from ME. They worship me IN VAIN, when they teach the doctrines of men as commandments!”

Oh, believers, can you not ‘hear’ the Messiah?

One can say “I love Him” all they want, but until we obey the WORD OF GOD……just as the Messiah said…. our worship is IN VAIN.

My heart breaks at the hardness of hearts in this country; the stiff-necked nature of the people of God.

לוּ–עַמִּי, שֹׁמֵעַ לִי    “Oh, that my people would HEAR ME…” Ps 81:14

One thought on “The Old Switcheroo

  1. Amein!

    What great promises for those who love and obey Elohim and His Word (Yeshua):

    Jeremiah 32:
    38 They will be My people, and I will be their God. 39 I will give them singleness of heart and singleness of purpose, so that they will fear Me forever – this will be for their own good and for the good of their children after them.
    . 40 I will make with them an everlasting covenant not to turn away from them, but to do them good; I will put fear of Me in their hearts, so that they will not leave Me. 41 I will take joy in them, so as to do them good. I will plant them in this land truly, with My whole heart and being.’

    And just a few verses earlier Abba listed the evil done by His children, and still… He extends Redemption. Amazing!

    Jer 32:33 They have turned their backs on Me, not their faces; and although I taught them, taught them frequently, they have not listened so as to receive instruction. 34 Instead they put their detestable idols in the house that bears My name, to defile it; 35 and they built the high places for Ba’al which are in the Ben-Hinnom Valley, to burn alive their sons and daughters to Molekh – something I did not order them to do, it never even entered My mind that they would do such an abominable thing – and thus they caused Y’hudah to sin.’
