Central to Christendom’s argument that the Torah or Law is ‘done away with’ is the obvious fact that there is no Temple and therefore, significant chunks of instruction cannot be carried out. But, does the absence of a Temple mean God did away with that part of the Law as Christendom believes? Or, does it simply mean that for the time being part of the Law cannot be obeyed?
What does Scripture say?
Yeshua, when talking about the Torah and the Prophets, said,
…truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
With heaven and earth still clearly here, are there passages in the Law and the Prophets that have not been fulfilled?
To even the most ill informed reader of Scripture, it is clear there are hundreds, maybe a thousand verses/passages that are unfulfilled. The most perplexing would be the passages promising future Continue reading “‘Done away with,’ or merely suspended?”
I have warned for a couple years now that the day is coming when sacrifice would begin again in Jerusalem. This NOT a bad thing, in fact prophecy clearly teaches in Ezekiel 43 and following that when the Messiah comes, He will preside over the sacrifice in the Temple. Other passages as we have explored before, also prophecy future sacrifice, contrary to Christendom’s assertion in the negative. I have covered this in detail through a number of posts. Here are just a few under one search term.
Well, today I read a jolting and deeply exciting article that portents again just how very very close we are to having sacrifice re-instituted which is a clear sign the Messiah is near.
Breaking Israel News reported yesterday that
One of the highlights of the Jewish year, the Passover offering, is making a comeback. On Monday, a reenactment presented the Biblical commandment in its full glory, which is fortunate since many rabbis believe that neglecting this important mitzvah (Torah commandment), even in the absence of a Temple, has grave consequences for Israel.
Psalm 27:4-5 meditation. Part of series in preparation for Yom Kippur.
I hear it often and have said it myself, “If I just had ______________, I’d be happy.” Maybe it is a large sum of money. Maybe to be debt-free, or a particular model car. Maybe it is to be in better shape, or better looking. Maybe it is a spouse, or particular someone. Or, a title, position, business, etc… The list is endless. For each person, the perceived want/need is different.
The Psalmist asks for ONE thing, and it is Continue reading “If you could ask for ONE thing, what would it be?”
We’ve discussed Rav Shaul, the Apostle Paul, several times recently. Specifically, the question has been, “what was Rav Shaul’s example?” He did say, ‘Imitate me as I imitate Messiah…’
Well, friend and commenter, hisloammi sent me a list with more ‘do as I do’ examples of Paul from Scripture.
- Shaul (Paul) observed the Biblical feasts of Israel in accordance to the cycle and calendar of the Holy Temple. (Acts 20:6)
- Shaul (Paul) made the vow of a Nazirite in accordance to Torah observance. (Acts 18:18)
Joel 2:30-32: “I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth,
Blood, fire and columns of smoke.
31 “The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood
Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.
32 “And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of Yahweh Will be delivered;
For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
There will be those who escape,
As the Lord has said,
Even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.
One of the interesting signs we are given as to the Day of the Lord is ‘the moon into blood.’
It is interesting to note that in 1947 and 1948 there were four blood moons associated with the formation of Israel as a nation.
In 1967 and 1968 there were four blood moons associated with the capture of Jerusalem.
NONE of those blood moons fell on a feast day….
The last time there was a blood moon tetrad was in the 1500s. After the one below, it won’t happen again for over a 100 years!!
Now, see this:
Notice also, the sun is turned to darkness on ‘new year’s day,’ according to the Hebrew calendar, AND, four blood moons ON Feast Days. Ask yourself, ‘is it significant that these all happen ON feast days?’ Why does Scripture say the Feasts of YHWH are to be celebrated forever, but the church says they are ‘abrogated/annulled? Zechariah 14:16-19 says we’ll celebrate some of these in the Millennium…. They are prophetic rehearsals for things yet to come… And, they are what the Father has connected the Blood moon signs with…
Might be a good time to be paying attention and drawing close to Messiah!! Read more on this blog to see what He really expects… What the Roman Catholic Church did away with and what Protestantism, the daughter of Catholicism is still missing…
