Old Testament Teachers
Welcome everyone and Love to you all. --ANOTHER WAKE-UP CALL !
A few people may get upset with me as they read this, but I ask you to think about what is being said and read your Scriptures to see if these things be so. We have many teaching today, from all kinds of worldly points of view, but not to many that are teaching directly as the 'Word" of Scriptures show. It seems most everyone has an idea of what or how the Gospel should be expressed, but most avoid any controversy with the Evangelical and Ecumenical Movements; and The World Council of Churches; all of which are only concerned with establishing or promoting unity among churches or religions. They strive to keep ""Unity"" at all cost, between these Churches and their "Religious Organizations", while Truth of the "Early" Assembly of Believers has just about disappeared from view. So much disinformation has crept into the Church world, IF the Disciples were to reappear, It is doubtful they would even recognize what is left of the Apostles Foundation. People have forgotten and misread; The NEW Covenant ccomplished by Messiah The Saviour, ONLY pertained to the Sacrificial Laws, _And to its curses) NOT to the Commandments, The Ordinances, or any of the other Laws.
2 Timothy 3
1-This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2-For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3-Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4-Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5-Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6-For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7-Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8-Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9-But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
10-But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11-Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all YAHVAH (L-rd) delivered me.
12-Yea, and all that will live Righteously in Messiah shall suffer persecution...READ More_
Remember what is said, 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; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 2 Timothy 4:3-4 -" For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 2:3-4''Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Messiah. 4-No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
On just these verses alone, much of what we hear today coming from the pulpit is far less than what the original Gospel is based on. First of all. THE EARLY Believers were Not Christian, they became part of the Judean Faith, the Nazarenes. Look at your Scriptures. The Messiah and the Disciples Preached out of the OLD Testament. There was NO New Testament at that time, the earliest NT fragment found came from about the middle of the first Century, At least 100 + years after Messiah ascended.
Today the Gospel is presented as IF-- it came ''through the Apostolic Foundations of The Christian Faith", and nothing could be further from the Truth. Constantine 325 AD 'created and started' the Christian Faith as an alternative, to the real Apostolic Foundations and teaching; because he hated the Jews and everything about them. Rome was pushing by persecution to get the Jews to conform to their Roman ''Time keeping System'' but it was Hillel II 's adoption in 353 AD of the change of the Jewish 'Creators Calendar' to the Babylonian Calendar. The -The Roman Calendar which the world is still under today', was already worked up by Emperor Constantine and some others..
Constantine changed the Jewish Sabbath to Sunday because he hated the Jews and worshipped the Sun. He changed the ''Names"" of the Heavenly Father and Messiah to 'titles'; he had Jewish Rabbi's killed, he Commanded the Jews convert to Christianity on threat of death. This just some of-- EMPEROR CONSTANTINES hateful crimes and activities toward the Jews and Nazarenes. (Natsarim) The Historical Apollonius Versus the Mythical Jesus, by Dr. R. W. Bernard, Ph.D..
The early Believers OF MESSIAH, were taught as all Jewish people were taught, with the exception of the Sacrificial Laws, as Messiah fulfilled those Laws when He gave His Life as the perfect Sacrifice, forever ending the Sacrificial Practice for the Natzarim. and the Believers in Messiah. However the rest of the Torah Law Remained in Place.
The Early believers and Converts were Jewish, and were taught from the OLD TESTAMENT with the Torah Law, Commandments, and Statutes. 'Quote' - A comment;on 2 Timothy 2:15-'In light of the deepening degradation of these self-willed deceivers it is imperative that Timothy firmly adhere to the divine truth he had previously heard and accepted.--'unquote'.
Paul told Timothy-- "From a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto ''salvation'' (through faith IN YAH AND AFTER MESSIAH CAME) ; FAITH which is in MESSIAH" (2 Timothy 3:15 KJV). Paul commands Timothy to continually abide in the Truth he had learned from a child. Dwell in it and live in it and do not "proceed" or "advance" away from it like the false teachers. 2 Timothy 2:15, KJV : "Study to shew thyself approved unto YAHVAH (G-d), a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
DEUT 32:46-47--"And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.47- ''For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life''.
Remember Messiah said; Matthew 5:17-18--'' "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished-(FULFILLED-WILL HAPPEN)." THIS IS IMPERATIVE KNOWLEDGE AND APPLICATION TO STUDY; ANYTHING WITHIN THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES.
When you look at the teachings of the Gospel to the early believers, versus what we hear today, its basically two different Doctrines in comparison, because in this modern time, the Torah Law has been 'thrown out' along with the Ten Commandments, . TRUE We are no longer obligated to the Sacrificial Laws, that used to be performed in the Temple at Jerusalem, as Messiah completed and fulfilled all those, but the Commandments and some applicable Torah Law was to be kept by the Gentiles, as explained by Paul. There are Laws concerning ''habits'' of YAHVAH'S people like the "Dietary Food" laws, Head Coverings- Dress; Behaviour and Daily personal time with YAHVAH- that should be studied TO HELP US UNDERSTAND.
Paul told the Disciples WITH WITNESSES IN ACTS 15: what to teach the Gentile Converts. Only certain Laws were to be FOLLOWED as they entered the Judaica Faith.
There is no question however that Paul taught both Jews and Gentiles to observe the weekly Sabbath, as evidenced by the correct translation of Hebrews 4:9: “There remains, therefore, Sabbath-keeping for the people of YAHVAH (G-d).” When we look at Paul’s ministry to the Gentiles, we find that he taught them on the Sabbath, not on Sunday.
And as for the Gentiles__THESE Instructions were given:
ACTS 15:19--''Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to YAHVAH (G-d):
Acts 15:20 But that ''we'' (Paul-Barnabus-Peter-James) write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.'
Acts 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well.
21-''For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day''.
(And so the Gentiles would learn in time, the whole of ''Torah'', as they attended Sabbath weekly)
THESE WERE NOT IDLE SUGGESTIONS AND IF ANYONE IS TEACHING MEN SO, THEY ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO THE ''WORD'' ==OR ARE DELIBERATELY AVOIDING WHAT PAUL AND MESSIAH HAD TO SAY.
REMEMBER WHAT MESSIAH TOLD US ABOUT THOSE MEN TEACHING OTHERS- NOT TO KEEP THE LAW?
17-Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18-For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot (Greek-#2762, Stroke of a letter) or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be 'fulfilled'---(GREEK #1096, SHOULD HAPPEN)
19-Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20-For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“And this is love that we walk after HIS COMMANDMENTS. This is the COMMANDMENT THAT YOU HAVE HEARD FROM THE BEGINNING THAT YOU SHOULD WALK IN IT.” 2 John 1:6
119 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of YAHVAH (L-rd).
2 -Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
3 -They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
4-- Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
5- O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
6 -Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.--READ MORE
2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17
16-All scripture is given by inspiration of YAHVAH (G-d), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17-That the man of YAHVAH (G-d) may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. WE ALL NEED TO BE -- '''HEARING'' THE WORDS OF SCRIPTURE"" AND OBEYING WHAT WE ARE GIVEN. FAR TOO MANY MEN IN MINISTRY HAVE STRAYED OFF COURSE AND ARE LEADING OTHERS INTO DESTRUCTION WITH THIS EASY 'BE-LIE-VISM"
