TORAH is the NARROW ROAD..
Now the Scriptures is clear we must live by every word of YHWH in the Old and New Testament."Deuteronomy 8:3 Matthew 4:4". In Ephesians 6:11-14 Put on the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. Now most believers quote this passage, but do they obey the truth. Sin means to miss the mark (and so not share in the prize). "Everyone practicing sin also practices lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that One was revealed that He might take away our sins, and sin is not in Him." "1 John 3:4-5" We are to stand, having girded our waist with truth. What is Truth? According to the word his Commandments are righteousness.."Psalm 119:172" As the BIBLE have shown in the scripture below, our obedience to the Torah (LAW) is our righteousness. "Psalm 119:142 your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your Torah is truth." Psalm 119:151 You are near, YHWH, and all Your commandments are truth." Psalm 119:160 The entirety of your Word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgments endures forever." Therefore, we are to gird ourselves with the Word of Truth, the Torah. The fact, we have seen that each detail of the armor is the Torah of YHWH. Just think the religious believer in Yahshua's day where practicing what they thought was right but not according to the word. Only traditions of man. John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.Psalm 119:151-152 "You are near, O YHWH, and all Your commandments are truth. Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever." Romans 3:31 also asks a question: "Do we then make void the Law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the Law." This word establish (#2476) means to stand. Thayer's Greek lexicon says, to make firm, to fix, to establish, to be kept intact. Romans 6:16 asks us, "Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?" These verses take us back to the Torah to help us understand the instructions we have been given, which have always been the will of YHWH for our lives. Compare the above with The Literal Translation: "For as many as are OUT OF works of Law, (these) are under A curse. For it has been written, ‘Cursed (is) everyone who does not continue in all the things having been written in the book of the Law, to do them.’" (From Deuteronomy 27:26) The transcribers left out one small word from the Greek text, ek. It is #1537 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, and is a primitive preposition denoting origin (the point whence motion or action proceeds), from, out (of place, time or cause; literally or figuratively; direct or remote). First, it should be noted that there is a great difference between "the curse" and "a curse." "The" curse is condemnation, which will be covered in a separate teaching. Now here, we are going to discuss "a" curse, which is the subject of Galatians 3:10. In conclusion: YHWH says, "Deuteronomy 30:19-20" "I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, (that) I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love YHWH your Elohim, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He (is) your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which YHWH swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."
The Law is referring to the Torah, the five books of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) is a set of instructions given to us for living a life set apart to our Creator. When Moses was called to received the Torah from YHWH him self, let me quote scripture on what YHWH says about Moses. Exodus 33:11 And the YHWH spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. "Ephesians 5:26-27 That He might set it apart, cleansing it by the washing of the water of the Word, that He might present it to Himself as the glorious Assembly, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things, but that it be set apart and without blemish."
TORAH IS THE
While it is true that we are not saved by keeping the Torah of YHWH, we must know and understand WHAT the word, TORAH, means. The word truth is referring to the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings, the Word of YHWH Elohim. The word Torah Signifies first "direction, instruction", as, for instance, the instruction of parents, or a Divine instruction, "Torah" is used in two senses–one general, meaning the whole Scriptures. The word TORAH in Hebrew was translated Law. It is the Strongs word Torah (law 08451). The best meaning of the word, TORAH, is "teaching or instruction." Torah is mentioned it is most often associated with the teachings of Moses. (Matthew 8:4, Matthew 19:7, Matthew 19:8, John 1:17, John 5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.) Psalm 119:142 “. . .and Your Law (Torah) is truth.” Psalm 119:151“. . .and all Your commands (are) truth.” John 17:17, “Sanctify them in Your truth; Your Word is truth.” Psalm 19:7“The Law of YHWH is perfect, restoring the soul.”
Ephesians 5:26-27 The Torah is like a mirror. When we look into it, we see our sins (Our Transgressions) so that we can repent and ask forgiveness for them. This is getting rid of our “Blemishes,” as we strive to walk just as the Messiah walked. The word TORAH does not mean SALVATION but rather "Teaching or Instruction". There is a word in the Bible which means "SALVATION" 03444,. Is the Hebrew word, Yahusha . The Hebrew word Yahusha means "Salvation of YAHUAH." This is the name most Christian use for HIM Jesus or Lord or God! (BUT IS NOT THE SAME). Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, YHWH with us. The closes translation to Jesus for Hebrew would be Hey Horse. At one time in the 16th Century they use the Greek name Iesus, this is not correct either. Matthew 1:21 "And she (Mary) shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name (Yahusha in Hebrew); for he shall SAVE his people from their sins." The letter ( J ) didn't even exist until at least 350 years ago!!! Not even a close translation!!! Since there is no letter "J" or "V" in original ancient Hebrew the Tetragrammaton YHWH was altered to JHVH.
What is the
LAWLESSNESS in Matthew 7:22
Lawlessness is transgression (violation) of the Law (the Torah). 1 John 3:4 “Everyone practicing sin also practices lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.” Literal Translation “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law.” "1 John 3:4 - King James Version" “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness.’ ” Matthew 7:22-23 These are people who declare themselves to be followers of the Messiah.
From this, we can understand that Yahusha means SALVATION of YAHUAH and TORAH means LIFE INSTRUCTIONS. Therefore, the Torah was NEVER meant by YAHUAH to be a means of salvation for His people. Elohim's only salvation is Yahusha the Messiah! ( But obeying the Torah will keep you in the right path, Only with the spirit of Yahusha)Romans 7:14 For we know that the LAW is SPIRITUAL: but *I* am fleshly, sold under sin. Think to be SPIRITUAL you must walk in the LAW or the bibles says you are Carnal, STOP following the Churches they don't teach LAW. The Pharisees which believed that salvation must keep the Torah. Acts 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved. The Christian quote this word out of context. You must read the entire chapter to see that the Torah must be kept but is not what saves you, the Torah is the light that guides your path. Yahusha is our Savior. Psalms 19:7 The law of the YHWH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the YHWH is sure, making wise the simple. He is the Light of the world in the FLESH. John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. Grace simply means favor. We cannot earn salvation, it is a free gift. Therefore, it is defined as unmerited favor. However, we are rewarded (receive favor) for our obedience to the Commands of YHWH. Acts 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. Our Mater Yahusha taught that we are to ask daily for our bread from Father "Matt.6: 11". This is not only speaking of material food for the flesh but of the Torah to feed our soul. Just as material bread is digested and nourishes the body, so in our inner self-the soul digests and absorbs the Torah and it becomes a part of us. This is how we are renew our mind and our life. We become united with it as it is assimilated into our inner being. This becomes the nourishment for the soul, and its inner life from the One Who brings forth bread from the earth-the Giver of LIFE! Because of this understanding of “food”, one should then begin to gain understanding of the purpose of the Commands, and the lessons YAHUAH is teaching us by the observance of those mitzvot. We also gain understanding why YAHUAH was angry when the Yisraelites rejected the manna He provided DAILY, and wanted flesh to eat to satisfy their desires of hunger for flesh instead of the bread of LIFE! This is a picture of those who reject the Torah of YAHUAH and would rather partake of the teachings of the flesh food from men. Therefore the study of the Torah of YAHUAH, although it is an “outer garment” "Revelation 3:4"like any other Commandment, is at the very same time "Food” for the soul of man. You see, when our intellect “Digests” a certain portion of the Torah or a particular mitzvah, it encompasses the Divine Knowledge, which then becomes the soul’s very “flesh and blood” like food digested by the body. The person and the Torah become ONE as it is absorbed into his soul. It imparts LIFE to him. Master Yahusha, Who Is the Living Torah, the incarnation of the Wisdom and Will of YAHUAH (Colossians 1:9; 2:2- 3), was the total completeness of the Torah. Wisdom means to obey not just hear. Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
TORAH DOES NOT
IT'S MUCH MORE
Because there is no proper corresponding word in Greek or English for the Hebrew word, TORAH, it is commonly translated as"law." Law implies a set of do's and don'ts intended to imprison people when they are broken. However, YHWH gave the Hebrew language to communicate His spiritual truths. In fact, YHWH calls Hebrew a pure language (Zephaniah 3:9). This truth is beautifully understood when we do a Biblical word study of the Hebrew word, TORAH. He says to be spiritual you must obey the Torah. Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: Matthew 5:18 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.
Mark 4:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. John 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the YHWH. The only way to covert is to obey the Torah of YHWH.
Notice that the LAW will not pass, the law is the way of life that we should be living. Is you receive Yahusha as your savior you must obey the law, to be spiritual. If you don't follow the Torah you are not spiritual. You actually are disobeying the Set Apart Spirit. The Torah is the foundation of the way you should live your life, is the instructions left to Moses in Mount Sinai. "Do you know what YAHUAH says about Moses. "
As mentioned earlier in this Web page, Torah comes from the Hebrew word, "Yarah" which means "to lay a Foundation." The teachings of Moses (the first five books of the Bible) are the foundation upon which the whole Scriptures (Bible) is based. The prophets and writings build upon that foundation. Spiritually, Yahusha is the LIVING TORAH "John 1:1" and YHWH's FIRM FOUNDATION. Timothy II 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of YHWH standeth sure, having this seal, The YaH knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Messiah depart from iniquity. In Isaiah 28:16 is it written: "Therefore, thus saith the YHWH, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a STONE, a tried stone, a precious Corner stone, a sureFOUNDATION, he that believeth shall not make haste." The firm foundation and chief cornerstone of YHWH's House is Yahusha. Yahusha is the living Torah. He is the Key to the Kingdom. "Revelation 1:18" This foundation is built upon by the prophets and apostles, Now some Christian have there own Apostle they have replace YHWH Chosen ones. They have replace the KEYS to the Kingdom. In Ephesians 2:19-20 it is written: "Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of YHWH; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahusha Messiah himself being the chief cornerstone. " Matthew 1:21 spoke of this concept through a parable about a wise man that built his house upon a rock. Matthew 7:24-27, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” According to the dictionary, a foundation is that “on which a building is built; the first layer of a structure that provides a stable base for the superstructure.” Imagine been in school and the teacher say we will be learning calculus today without learning basic math. This what most Christians have done by not reading the Scriptures from beginning to end. They usually are told to start in John.
TREE OF LIFE!
Those people who delight in the TORAH of YHWH and meditate in YHWH's TORAH day and night are like a tree planted by the rivers of water. In Psalm 1:1-3 it is written: "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the TORAH of the YHWH; and in his TORAH doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth hisfruit in his season; his leaf also shall not whither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. "In these verses we can see that a believer who delights himself in the TORAH of the YHWH and meditates day and night in the TORAH is like a TREE planted by the rivers of water. In Revelation 22:1-2, the tree planted by the rivers of water is the tree of life as it is written: "And he showed me a pure river of water of Life clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of YHWH and of the LAMB. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the LEAVES (TORAH) of the tree were for the healing of the Nations. Notice the (HEALING IS IN THE TREE LEAVES this is the SCRIPTURES)" Furthermore, Yahusha told His Congregations that those who DO His Commandments (Torah) will have RIGHT to the Tree of life. In Revelation 22:14 it is written: "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." Therefore, from these verses we can understand the following: The tree of life that was planted in the Garden of Eden was the Torah YHWH's Torah is worth far above pure gold YHWH's Torah is for the healing of the nations Those who keep YHWH's Torah have right to the tree of life. Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the (Torah) law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to (Establish) Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the (Torah) law are under the CURSE: for it is written, Cursed is every one that Continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the ( Torah) LAW to do them. 1 John 3:16“By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” 1 John 5:2-3“By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and keep His commandments. For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.” 2 John 1:4“This is love, that we walk (do) according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.” 2 John 1:6“I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father.” John 15:10“If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.”
So the righteousness we have imputed to us through the death of Messiah is the declaration of innocence that existed before the disobedience of Adam. Now, because Yahusha died in our place and has become our High Priest through His resurrection, we can be restored to the Father and confess our sins to Him. As we confess our sins, our disobedience to His Law, we must repent. This means that we are to turn back in obedience to His divine Law, the Torah, and perform its Commands, which is Righteousness. Then we are walking in Yahshua's footsteps, because walking in obedience to the Law is walking in the instructions which were established to bring us into the image of Messiah. Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Matthew 22:11-14 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. The garments for the soul, the performance of the mitzvot, therefore enable one’s soul to apprehend Elohim. By donning the garments of Torah and the Living Torah-Yahusha-one becomes united with Him. Thus, man’s behavior can actually bring his soul to a higher level that it can never achieve on its own or without the Torah! Only when one apprehends the Torah of YAHUAH and the mitzvot does one grasp and clothe himself with Elohim Himself. This is how when we receive Rebbe Melek Yahusha HaMoshiach, we PUT HIM ON AS A GARMENT- He is the Living Torah! He is the embodiment of all the Torah and we can clothe ourselves in Him. Our GARMENTS have become washed in His blood cleansing us from all our Torah breaking. It is our duty then to keep them undefiled by the washing of the water of the Torah (Ephesians 4:26-27 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. ). The torah and clean garment go hand in hand.
Yahusha(John 8:31-32)... if you Continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Psalms 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy LAW is TRUTH. NOTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS THE LAW.. SO HOW CAN YOU WALK IN THE TRUTH IF YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW!. John 8:31 Yahusha therefore said to the Jews who believed him, If ye abide in my word, ye are TRULY my DISCIPLES; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. They answered him, We are Abraham's seed, and have never been under bondage to any one; how sayest thou, Ye shall become free? Yahusha answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Every one that practises SIN is the bondman of sin. Now the bondman abides not in the house for ever: the son abides for ever. If therefore the Son shall set you free, ye shall be really free. Psalms 119:44 Then will I keep thy LAW continually, for ever and ever; And I will walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts; And I will speak of thy testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed; And I will delight myself in thy COMMANDMENTS, which I have loved; And I will lift up my hands unto thy commandments, which I have loved, and I will meditate in thy STATUTES. James 1:25 But *he* that fixes his view on [the] PERFECT LAW, that of liberty, and abides in [it], being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of [the] work, *he* shall be blessed in his doing. James 2:12 So speak ye, and so act, as those that are to be judged by [the] law of liberty; Peter II 2:21 For it were better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known [it] to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. But that [word] of the true proverb has happened to them: [The] dog [has] turned back to his own VOMIT; and, [The] washed sow to [her] rolling in mud. Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all ye who labour and are burdened, and *I* will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest to your souls; for my YOKE IS EASY, and my burden is light. Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith YHWH: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the ancient paths, which is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk [therein]. Also I have set watchmen over you: -- Hearken ye to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O assembly, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, the fruit of their thoughts; for they have not hearkened unto my WORDS, and as to my LAW, they have rejected it. Proverbs 6:23 For the Commandment is a Lamp, and the teaching a LIGHT, and reproofs of INSTRUCTIONS are the WAY of LIFE:
Here parable that show that both receive the savior but only five were wise and where ready. WISE AND WISDOM ARE TWO DIFFERENT MEANING MOST CHRISTIAN HAVE KNOWLEDGE BUT NO WISDOM (IF YOU HAVE WISDOM YOU WILL OBEY). Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of the heavens be made like to ten virgins that having taken their torches (Yahusha), went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were prudent and five FOOLISH. They that were foolish took their torches and did not take oil with them; but the prudent took oil (WORD) in their vessels with their torches. Now the bridegroom tarrying, they all grew heavy and slept. But in [the] middle of [the] night there was a cry, Behold, the bridegroom; go forth to meet him. Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their torches (TORAH). And the FOOLISH said to the prudent, Give us of your oil (THE WORD), for our torches are going out. But the prudent answered saying, [We cannot,] lest it might not suffice for us and for you. Go rather to those that sell, and buy for yourselves. But as they went away to buy, the bridegroom came, and the [ones that were] READY went in with him to the Wedding Feast, and the door was shut. Afterwards come also the rest of the Virgins, (THIS MEANS THEY ALL RECEIVED Yahusha BUT SOME DID NOT OBEY) saying, MASTER, MASTER, open to us; but he answering said, Verily I say unto you, I do not know you. Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour. This parable show us that we must walk according to the Torah (LAW). You need to chose what kingdom do you belong to. Notice that the TORAH (LAW) is a LAMP that light your way on how you must live your life. John I 2:4 He that says, I know him, and does not keep his COMMANDMENTS, is a LIAR, and the TRUTH is not in him; John I 3:10 In this are manifest the children of Elohim and the children of the devil. Whoever does not practice Righteousness is not of Elohim, and he who does not love his Brother. For this is the message which ye have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another: (TO LOVE IS TO TEACH THE TRUTH) You would not let your brother go to HELL if you know that you could do something about it! If we are Abraham seed should we not do what he DID ? Genesis 26:5 because that Abraham hearkened to my voice, and kept my CHARGE, my COMMANDMENTS, my STATUTES, and my LAWS (NOTICE NOT FAITH ONLY). Hebrews 2:16 For he does not indeed take hold of angels by the hand, but he takes hold of the seed of Abraham. If your eyes are been open you must be Abraham seed. James 2:14 What is the profit, my brethren, if any one say he have faith, but have not works? can faith save him? James 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? James 2:23 And the scripture was Fulfilled which says, Abraham believed YHWH, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness, and he was called Friend of YHWH. Romans 2:13 (For not the hearers of the LAW are just before ELOHIM, but the DOERS of the LAW shall be JUSTIFIED. Conclusion we are save by grace and after we come to salvation there is a Narrow road that we must TAKE ACCORDING to the scriptures to walk, and live and that road is the Torah of YHWH, and Yahusha showed us how to walk in it. WILL YOUR RECEIVE THE TREE OF LIFE AND NOT BE ANY MORE LIKE THE FIRST ADAM ?
