Welcome, to another doorway of Yahweh’s Family Gathering Center toward learning Bible Truths. If you have arrived on this page, then, it could be said that you are interested in Knowing Real Truth according to Bible Scriptures. Many people, including Ministers, Preachers, and Teachers of the Word, since the time of Yahshua Messiah (Jesus) have made claim that the Laws of the Old Testament have been done away with and that we are no longer under the law - but under grace alone. This is exactly what our adversary Satan would like for everyone to believe. However, as much as many of us would like for this to be true, this is just NOT True at all.
Take a moment and ask yourself this definitive question: “Are the Ten Commandments merely a set of laws, of a religious nature, and just for a particular group of people?” Many certainly have tried to make us believe so! Especially, when people began protesting against having a copy of the Ten Commandments hanging on the walls of our schools and in other public buildings. It has been said “If our children were to read them that they might begin to follow them.” What an uncivilized state of affairs we have arrived at through this course of thinking! Without law there cannot be any freedom. The dictate of man’s interpretation of what should be law now seems to supersede Divine Law. Because man has formed two sets of laws, one of a religious nature - not being the original intent, and another set of laws for society at large to follow, man undoubtably will continue to dig himself into a deeper hole of darkness. Ignore the Instruction Manual, the Bible, given for every society and culture to follow; Ignore the Creator’s Laws and the irrefutable results will be the death of civilization.
Everything, throughout all space and time that has ever been created, as science has proven thus far - operates and is governed by a set of Rules, Principles, or Laws designed for a particular purpose. Regardless of which word “rules - principles - laws” one may use, they all define or establish a practice that serves as a guide to usage. Through this method we are able to acquire knowledge necessary by which we can know right from wrong. Otherwise, How would a person know right from wrong? How could a person know how to live a godly life?
When Yahweh our Father established His New Covenant for us, through His Son, He never eliminated the law which was set before us as a guide for life, by the prophets. Even Yahshua kept all the laws. If Yahshua kept all the laws and we are to follow in His footsteps, how much more should we try to keep them?
Are we to make ourselves free from the Responsibility of the Laws of Yahweh because man makes this claim? Absolutely - Not! It is only through obedience to the Father’s every Command by which we can please Him. Therefore, the major SIN we are committing every day is our denial of not keeping His Laws as outlined in all the Scriptures. If we forsake His Laws, we have forsaken His New Covenant just as our forefathers forsook the Old Covenant. And, if we continue to use this excuse - which is sinful, that we are not under the law, more wrath and chastisement will be forth coming upon each and every individual.
We must remember quite clearly, when Yahshua began to teach, He taught on all the things found in the Old Testament, because the New Testament had not been written yet. However, when the New Testament was written, we find Yahshua saying this in Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” With any kind of common sense, a reader of this verse should see that Yahshua was conveying two important messages here. First, He had come to fulfill what the prophets had said in prophesying of His coming; Secondly, He reinforces the idea that the law was not to be done away with. If He had come to destroy the law, wouldn’t you think that He would have said so? In fact, He came to strength the law, by showing us how to keep it - as He had done.
This certainly lines up with what Paul had said in Romans 3:31 “Do we then make void the law through faith? No: we establish the law”; And, Paul also testified in Romans 10:3 about those who were zealous of Yahweh, but not according to the knowledge of Him: “For they being ignorant of Yahweh’s righteousness (meaning the law), and going about to establish their own righteousness (again, law), have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness (law) of Yahweh.”
When anyone truly accepts the Gift of Salvation through Faith, they have made an agreement to abide by the covenant which was established in order to receive eternal life. However, most people may not realize how important a Covenant really is, or even understand all the elements contained within our wonderful Covenant of Salvation. According to most of the dictionaries we have, they define a Covenant as, a binding and solemn agreement made by two or more individuals, parties, etc. to do or keep from doing a specified thing. A sealed contract also has a clause for damages for violation of such a contract. This is the same type of contract, or solemn agreement that everyone enters into when they accept the New Testament Covenant of Salvation.
If you have payed attention to the definition just given for the meaning of a covenant, you should have noticed three very important incentives. First: a covenant is made between two or more people; Second: a covenant establishes Do’s and Don’ts toward specified things; And Third: a covenant or sealed contract also has a clause for violation of such a contract.
Although the Bible does not present everything in one spot or place, in chronological order, all the factors included in our covenant of salvation, we will however - find all those factors written throughout the whole consul of Yahweh’s Word. By searching out the entire Word and following in it is how we keep our part of the covenant valid.
This is exactly what Yahshua had done in order to be found righteous in His Father’s eyes and became our substitute for sin, He keep all the laws. For Yahshua said “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have KEPT my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.” (John 15:10)
Also, after what Yahshua had said in Matthew 5:17, that He had not come to destroy the law, He went on to say in verse 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.”
If we are to believe “one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled,” does this imply that the laws have been done away with? I don’t think so! If “sin is the transgression of the law” as stated in 1 John 3:4, would we be able to sin? Again, I don’t think so! Yet, we know that we do sin and need to ask for forgiveness daily. Why the need to ask for forgiveness if there is no sin which is the transgression of law? Therefore, we must be under some kind of law, wouldn’t you say?
Just how did this idea of not being under the law all get started? This false idea of not being under the law is nothing new that has just started in recent years. To find out the answer on how this all started all we need to do is go back into the scriptures. Our Heavenly Father, as we know, if one has read their Bible, spoke to many of the prophets about this subject and had them write about it for our future benifit. The Disciples wrote of this also in the New Testament.
Daniel wrote that there would be those who would “think to change times and the laws” Daniel 7:25. Changing times refers to the Seven Feast Days that were to be observed forever, from generation to generation, and to the Weekly Sabbath Day which was to be kept on the seventh day of the week. Today, most Christians cannot even tell you what the Seven Feast Days are! Because they have never been taught about them or taken the time themselves to study the Bible. Yet, we can keep the pagan feast days which we are told was an abomination to the Father.
As for changing the laws, Daniel had to see people during his time also changing the Laws of Yahweh and making up their own laws for the people to follow in. Even the true followers and believers of the laws were becoming confused by these lying prophets. However, many would come to believe that these men were true prophets and began to follow in their new wind of doctrine. Many are doing this very same thing today.
Daniel, further states in this same verse, vs. 25, that due to the changing of the times and laws by the prophets, they “shall wear out the saints of the most High.” Daniel may not have realized when he said this, that it was referring to future times also, of our modern day. A message was given by Paul likewise in 1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” Don’t we see Christians today divided over the issues of what laws to keep and is causing many to turn away from the faith of the One True Father and Giver of All Law?
Jeremiah gave this warning “Then Yahweh said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart” Jeremiah 14:14. And, he later repeated this in Jeremiah 29:9 “For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith Yahweh.”
Time after time, in some manner or form, we are given this warning throughout the bible. Certainly a very good reason to pay attention to what 1 John 4:1 says: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of Yahweh: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
The Prophets are considered as the Teachers of the Word and today we call them Priests, Ministers, Deacons, Evangelists, and etc. Nevertheless, they are all teachers of the Word regardless of what one wishes to call them. From what we have just read in 1 John 4:1, we can truly see “we are to try the spirits.” The word “spirits” refer to both “good and evil spirits,” and we must determine according to the Written Word - in whom we are truly following.
For we find written in Proverbs 6:23 “For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.”
Proverbs 3:1 “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart KEEP my commandments.”
Proverbs 7:1 “My son, KEEP my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.”
Proverbs 7:2 “KEEP my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.”
Paul said “I thank Yahweh, through Yahshua Messiah our King. So then, with the mind, I myself serve the Law of Yahweh; but with the flesh the law of sin” Romans 7:25.
It should be quite evident by now, through scripture, that we are still under Divine Law. So, the next time, those you respect and trust tells you otherwise, don’t be afraid to question their motives. This was the same method by which Satan had deceived Eve, by tricking her into NOT KEEPING the law or command given to both her and Adam. A deception right out of the pit of darkness. If we fall for this scheme, one could certainly fall from the True Faith in Yahweh and lose out on eternal life with Him.
In closing, let me say this: From what little you have learned through the Scriptures thus far, you can certainly see that we must abide by Divine Law. No! We may not be able to keep all the Father’s Laws as Yahshua did, but this certainly doesn’t give us room to reject the Laws either. For Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou has rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me; seeing thou hast forgotten the law of Yahweh thy Father, I will also forget thy children.” Would you want the Father to forget you and your children? I would certainly hope not!
One other thing we must remember also, without “Law” there is no “Freedom”; And, with “Law” - without “Mercy” - there is no “Justice.” Sound confusing? Let me explain. Sometimes we get so caught up in initiating a penalty toward someone who has broken a law, that we forget the true meaning of forgiveness and mercy, without penalty. This has been demonstrated for us many times throughout various stories in the Bible, yet we tend to forget.
Take the case of Adultery. In the Bible, the penalty for adultery was stoning to death, and this penalty applied to everyone that committed this sin. However, this penalty was not applied in the case of one woman. You can find this story in the Gospel of John, chapter eight. A woman who had committed adultery was brought by the Scribes and Pharisees before Yahshua. They asked Him what they should do, knowing the law. Yet, the woman was forgiven and without a penalty.
Did this do away with the law? No! But, what we were being shown was that GRACE and MERCY must be used with the law. Every case and circumstance must be weighted by each individual person’s case. May we all have Mercy in judgement of others, so True Justice can prevail. Our Heavenly Father’s grace and mercy works that way toward us.
Following you will find a list of where most of the Laws are found in the Bible. Check them out and let the Spirit of Yahweh lead you into how you should begin to follow in them. Without any uncertainties you will become blessed in doing so.
