“The Torah and the Prophets VS the Resurrection” Taught By Yeshua

When reading through the following texts from Luke 16, we will discover some profound insights into what the Savior has to say. In particular we will want to pay close attention to what the subject matter is about.

Luk 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luk 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

Luk 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luk 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luk 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Luk 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

Luk 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luk 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, thatwould comefrom thence.

Luk 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

Luk 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Luk 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Some teachers may consider this passage to be about heaven and hell or the poor man’s reward versus the rich man’s reward, and while that may be true to some extent; the passage is focused on something else. I will cut to the chase, and assure you this passage is about repentance. Why do we need to repent? So that when we die we can enter Abraham’s bosom? Yes, but more importantly it is Elohim’s will for us to live the “Torah” the first five books of the bible. These are Moses’ writings and Elohim’s instructions for life as well. If we repent of our wrongdoings and return to the Torah of Elohim there is life in there, as well as eternal life.

For those who would contend that “all we need is Jesus”, you are using the very words of the rich man in this story (verse 30)

Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

Here we would expect Yeshua (Jesus) to say

"Yeah Baby! They will repent because of the one that comes back from the dead"

"They don’t need the Torah and the prophets Just me"

" What a great Idea!

ONE FROM THE DEAD IS COMING BACK AND THAT WILL SOLVE EVERYTHING!”

As a matter of fact these are the very anthems most believers hold to in contradiction to what the Savior has to say!

The teaching of our Savior is explicit!

Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

So once again I implore you to listen to the Saviors words and Hear (Obey) MOSES (The Torah) and the prophets which is what repentance is all about! Without doing that we will not be persuaded “even though one arose from the dead”.

Elohim Bless!

Did Elohim command Gentiles to eat all animals?

Did Elohim (God) make all creatures okay for humankind to eat?

Gen 9:3  EveryH3605 moving thingH7431 thatH834 livethH2416 shall beH1961 meatH402 for you; even as the greenH3418 herbH6212 have I givenH5414 you(H853) all things.H3605

Judaism and Church both teach that the gentiles are allowed to eat of any creature they wish based on the above verse.

That particular view is problematic at best and we will show that it is not true at all. I will try to outline some of those problems below as well as give a correct interpretation of the verse. Please also note that I have given the king James with Strong’s numbers in the verse above. This will help us as we discover what we are even talking about here.

1.     This verse is given right after Noah freeing the animals; hence if he killed and ate any of the unclean animals they would have become extinct as there was only two of each of those. That is Elohim (God) would have them line up in the ark and house and feed them for several months just to have Noah eat one and have them go extinct…

2.     The verse says that “even as the green herb have I given you all things”. Does that mean that Elohim is in favor of marijuana, cocaine, poppy seed use etc. that we classify as illegal drugs?

3.     Does it mean that we can eat poison berries, poison mushrooms etc.?

4.     Foods that are unclean in Leviticus are known to not be healthy. Which begs the question; would Elohim tell us to go ahead and eat unhealthy foods?

Based upon these arguments alone I would say that there is something wrong with the interpretation given by the Judaism and the Church. Below we will see that the scriptures say something else as well!

 In the verses below we will see Noah took three types of creatures on the ark.

    Creature and Strong’s number

1.     Fowls  H4480 (birds)

2.     Cattle  H929 (quadruped, four footed animals)

3.     Creeping things H7431

Gen 6:19  And of everyH4480 H3605 living thingH2416 of allH4480 H3605 flesh,H1320 twoH8147 of everyH4480 H3605sort shalt thou bringH935 intoH413 the ark,H8392 to keep them aliveH2421 withH854 thee; they shall beH1961 maleH2145 and female.H5347

Gen 6:20  Of fowlsH4480 H5775 after their kind,H4327 and ofH4480 cattleH929 after their kind,H4327 of everyH4480 H3605 creeping thingH7431 of the earthH127 after his kind,H4327 twoH8147 of everyH4480 H3605sort shall comeH935 untoH413 thee, to keep them alive.H2421

In Verse 6:20 we see that the “creeping things” are H7431and that our bible translators changed that term to “moving thing” H7431 in verse 9:3. Instead of saying “every moving thing…shall be meat” It should say “every creeping thing… shall be meat”. This interestingly enough does not mention us eating any fowls, cattle, or sea creatures.

Our translators did us a further disservice by also changing the word from cattleH929 in verse 6:20 to the word beastH929 in the verses below.

Gen 7:2  Of everyH4480 H3605 cleanH2889 beastH929 thou shalt takeH3947 to thee by sevens,H7651 H7651 the maleH376 and his female:H802 and ofH4480 beastsH929 thatH834are notH3808 cleanH2889 by two,H8147 the maleH376 and his female.H802

From this verse we can see that the unclean animals mentioned are of the class H929(beast or cattle).

There are no unclean H7431 (creeping things or moving things) listed anywhere in scripture. Therefore this is in no way a command to eat the unclean animals. Note Leviticus uses the words “unclean creeping things” but it is a different Strong’s number of H8318 meaning a swarm.

If you believe we are under this command it does not give us any jurisdiction to eat sea food, any four footed animals (beasts), or any fowls

Blessings!

If You love me keep my commandments

If you love me keep my commandments

As a matter of fact we can see this same thread throughout the entire bible.

Jos 22:5  But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Neh 1:5  And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

1Jn 5:2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

2Jn 1:6  And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

Gen 26:4  And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

Gen 26:5  Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

 

Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

 

Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Rev 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

1Jn 3:20  For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

1Jn 3:21  Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

1Jn 3:22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

1Jn 3:23  And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

1Jn 3:24  And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Pharaohs’ Dream VS Peter’s vision

First off we will read Pharaoh’s dream. Note: kine are cows

Gen 41:1  And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

Gen 41:2  And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

Gen 41:3  And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

Gen 41:4  And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

What would you say if I were to tell you that some believe that skinny cows should eat fat cows according to the scriptures? Specifically in verse 4.

Below is an excerpt from wikipedia on BSE or Mad cow Disease

{Bovine spongiform encephalopathy

A British inquiry into BSE concluded the epizootic was caused by cattle, which are normally herbivores, being fed the remains of other cattle in the form of meat and bone meal (MBM), which caused the infectious agent to spread.}

Most of us would conclude that would be silly, because Joseph gives the interpretation that the cows are lean years which will eat up the fat years and not cows at all!

This begs the question, when we read Peters vision why do people take the vision at face value and totally ignore the interpretation given by Peter.

Let’s take a look at Peter’s vision

Act 10:9  On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

Act 10:10  And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

Act 10:11  And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

Act 10:12  Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

Act 10:13  And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

Act 10:14  But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

Act 10:15  And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

Act 10:16  This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

And the interpretation of the Vision

Act 10:28  And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

Act 10:29  Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?

For those who missed it, the interpretation of the vision is that he should not call any man unclean or common. Simple isn’t it. His vision has nothing to do with unclean food anymore than the pharaoh’s dream has to do with cows eating each other.

Side Note #1.

 I want to point out that Peter said in verse 28 that it is unlawful to keep company, or come unto one of another nation. When Peter says it is unlawful, he is not referring to the written Torah, as the Torah holds no such command. But he is referring to the oral torah, which is the teaching, or tradition of the elders. Today the oral torah is called the Talmud.  

But what does the Written Torah say?

Num 15:16  One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

Deu 10:17  For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:

Deu 10:18  He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.

Deu 10:19  Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Side note #2.

 Some claim that Yeshua (Jesus) had taught his disciples that all food is clean and that they ate pork and other such things. The timing of the vision is believed by most scholars to be about 15 years after the resurrection. Peter’s testimony here is that he has never eaten anything that is common or unclean.

  To summarize we need to keep Torah and be like Peter and not eat anything unclean.

Elohim Bless!

The Great Commission or is it?

Mat 28:16  Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

Mat 28:17  And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

Mat 28:18  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Mat 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

First off I want to say that I do not wish to take anything away from those of you who feel you are called to preach or evangelize the world. This teaching is for those of us who feel beat over the head with these verses when we do not have that call.

Straight away we can see in verse 16 that Yeshua is giving the commission to the eleven disciples. We also can notice that the commission in verse 19 is two pronged. One is to teach, the other is to baptize.

Below Paul straight up says he is not called to baptize. How can that be, if the above verses are required of everyone?

1Co 1:17  For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

Secondly, a disciple is someone who learns, but when Yeshua sends someone out that makes them an apostle. So are we all apostles?

1Co 12:28  And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

1Co 12:29  Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

1Co 12:30  Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

The answer to all these questions is emphatically no. No, all are not apostles.

Another way of putting it is …

1Co 12:14  For the body is not one member, but many.

1Co 12:15  If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:16  And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:17  If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

1Co 12:18  But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

Again we can see that we all have our place in the body of Yeshua, but do not all have the same commission.

To put this subject to bed, we will provide an easy way to distinguish between things that are for everyone and things that are for certain people. First we need to notice who it is that’s being talked to, and if the Torah commands us to do that also. That is to say, if Yeshua says to do something and the Torah says we are to do it then it is for us to do. For Example we are to do the commands below.

Mar 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mar 12:30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Mar 12:31  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

On the other hand we have an example of a command that’s given that is not in the Torah

Mar 1:40  And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mar 1:41  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

Mar 1:42  And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

Mar 1:43  And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

Mar 1:44  And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mar 1:45  But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.

Yeshua says in Mark 1:44 “See thou say nothing to any man”.

Whoa!

The complete opposite of what the eleven Apostles were told in “the great commission”. Could this be why the monks choose not to talk? I could list several more examples, but I think you get the idea.

Elohim Bless!

Little Fun Here.

Q. Why didn’t Yeshua come down from the cross as he was taunted to do?

A. The stakes were too high.
