The LAW, The Torah, The WORD,


                                Honor Parents, the Commandment with Promise

In the Church at large, The Fifth Commandment has been annulled if there are no “rules and regulations” Parents cannot expect their children to obey if THEY cannot obey the Commandments. Otherwise, it would be hypocrisy!

The modern Church’s commandment to “forget the law of Moses/YaHVaH” has inadvertently cancelled the Fifth Commandment, “Children, honor/obey your Parents”. 
Or if they say “all the Commandments have been done away with except for “Honor your parents” then it is hypocrisy. 

The neo-Evangelical church (especially in Christian media) has incorrectly-stated that ‘YaHVah’s law has been annulled by the Sacrifice of Messiah on Calvary’s tree’. The statement is falsely made that the ‘Kingdom of YaHVaH (g_d) does not consist of any RULES OR REGULATIONS’.
However if they should continue with that dogma consistently they would need to negate the FIFTH COMMANDMENT (below “Honor Father and Mother”) and the other 1050 Commands of the New Testament and the 212 Commands of the Older Testament.

Here are Scriptures demonstrating that the Fifth Commandment (and ALL Commandments, Statutes and Judgments or good works) have certainly not been annulled. 

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (KJV)
Pro_17:6 “Grandchildren are the crown of the elderly and the splendor of children is their parents.” Some Scriptures are taken from the TLV version.

Eph_6:1 Children, obey your parents in YaHVaH, for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Col_3:20 Children, obey your parents in every respect, for this is pleasing to YaHVaH.
Exo 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long upon the land which YaHVaH your Sovereign One is giving you. 
Deut/Devarim 5:16 ‘Honor your father and your mother just as YaHVaH (corrected from “adonai” ) your Sovereign One commanded you, so that your days may be long and it may go well with you in the land YaHVaH (corrected) your Sovereign One is giving you.

Psa_119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

2Ch_25:4 He did not put their children to death, but acted according to what is written in the Torah, in the book of Moses, which YaHVaH (corrected) commanded saying, “Parents should not die for the children, neither should the children die for the parents, but every person should die for his own sins.
Mat_10:21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against their parents and have them put to death.
John/Yochanon_9:2 His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?”
:3 Yeshua/YaHOSHA answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned. This happened so that the works of Sovereign One might be brought to light in him.
:8 So the Judean leaders didn’t believe that he had been blind and received his sight until they called his parents.

Rom_1:30 slanderers, YaHVaH-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents.
They are foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of Sovereign One is revealed from heaven against all goodliness and unrighteousness of men. In unrighteousness they suppress the truth, because what can be known about the Sovereign One is plain to them—for YaHVaH has shown it to them. 
His invisible attributes—His eternal power and His divine nature—have been clearly seen ever since the creation of the world, being understood through the things that have been made. So people are without excuse— 
Though they know G_d/YaHVaH’s righteous decree—that those who practice such things deserve death—they not only do them but also approve of others who practice the same. 

Psa_119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
:89 LAMED. For ever, O YaHVaH, thy word is settled in heaven.
:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
:105 NUN. Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

The Western mindset is often obsessed with not having to walk in Torah he forgets that YaHVaH wants him to have a joyful life and future. They say it is bondage to wear black hats, beards, tzi-tzi's, keep the Sabbaths, New Moons and to eat clean. YaHVaH Creator and Messiah has given us these good judgments for our blessing.  
We ought to love to tithe, attend services, eat the commanded clean foods, and not want to have pagan things. Of course, if a person is not even concerned with the main issue (repentance), why would he worry about repenting from the so-called "minor regulations". To a true believer, there is no minor commandment.  
Matthew 9 9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment (tzi tzi) I shall be whole. 

Each year the family travels to peaceful places
to Praise YAHVAH, hear inspiring preaching, sing, fellowship, 
and have big meals together. It's hard to imagine a Feast being called
'bondage'. The main problem some have with YAHVAH's Law is His call to assemble together on the New Moons and Sabbaths, Isaiah 66:23, Zech. 14, Lev 23. How and when to praise YaHVaH is specified in these verses. Will you go there? Some just meet in homes and back yards. But this is a chag pilgrimage feast which means we will want to travel to a special place.
We should meet in convocation with like-minded believers when YAHVAH tells us to in Leviticus 23 found in the Torah.Paul says to avoid striving about The Law, Titus 3:9 and 1 Tim 1:7.

We believe that we have received salvation by faith Eph 2:8-10. So as long as we keep the terms of His New Covenant, including YAHVAH’s commandments, statutes, judgments and precepts, we remain in His protection. If we do not want His Feasts, we will not enjoy Paradise.

What IS the Gospel? 1 Cor 15:1-4 which tells the death, burial and resurrection of Messiah is paramount. Remember, YahVah, The Messiah was DEAD three nights and three days in Matt 12:40 and 28:1. He was
impaled and buried before the end of Aviv or Nisan 14. He arose 72 hours later (Month of Aviv 14, plus 3 nights and days equals Aviv17). These dates annually rotate to different DAYS of the WEEK. 
There is no prophecy that said it would change His Sabbath day of praise.

 More Lawless statements:
“KEEPING THE LAW (PRAISING YAHVAH ON HIS COMMANDED SEVENTH DAY) IS BONDAGE.” When does obedience equal bondage? In every case, sin is bondage. Keeping Sabbath is not sinful bondage. Man changed laws, so at times, keeping Sabbaths DOES seem like bondage. Losing employment, receiving discrimination from religious leaders who want you to pad their pews and pave their parking lots, that's bondage! But, should I obey man? No! Custom and tradition is vanity. Should I obey YaHVaH? Yes! 

"WE'RE NOT UNDER THE LAW, BUT UNDER PARDON." Are Believers above the Law? Romans 8:7 "Because the carnal mind is enmity against Yahvah, for it is NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW (THE TORAH) OF YAHVAH, neither indeed can be". Are you subject to His Law (of praise)?
Eph. 2:8 10 "We are His workmanship...unto good works". Yahvah tests our obedience to see if we love Him, 1 John 5:2 3. 
LOVE: By this we know that we love the children of YaHVaH, when we LOVE YaHVaH and keep His Commandments. For this IS the LOVE of YaH that we keep His Commandments (Greek 1785 precepts, see Mark 10:5) and His Commandments are NOT grievious (Greek 926 Burdensome).

We pray because we need to praise YaH and make intercession. We tell people The Evangel (Gospel) to lovingly assist and teach them. But, none of this saves us. Yet, these are WORKS. ‘Raising our right hand at an "altar call" without anyone looking around so as not to embarrass the person’ is works! So is singing!
Galatians 2 opens with the Law of Circumcision, and closes in Chapter 6 with the same teaching. The ADDED Law due to transgressions are the animal sacrifices, the death penalty, the carnal ordinances and washings. It consists of Temple Sacrifices. Read Ezek. 20:24 25, Jer 7:22, Hebrews 9:9 10.  
​1 John 3 tells us that "..Sin is the transgression of Torah".

Deut_8:3 And He humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YaHVaH doth man live.
Did Messiah die to nail the Laws to the stake? Then, did He post
all the Laws except for any Sabbath mitvoh/Laws of praising?  No! The perfect Lamb died not to nullify His Commandments, but He died and offered Himself for the sin penalty, even the Law of sin and death. The Church has attempted to annul the Ten Commandments and all the whole law. Now sodomy and murder are allowed in the U.S. but remember, we didn't want any law!  

There are no divisions of Torah such as CEREMONIAL, JUDICIAL AND MORAL. We DO see COMMANDMENTS, STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS. In the Revelation, these are called "works".Let us then live by every Word of YaHVaH.

“THE LAW IS JEWISH!” The entire BOOK is Jewish, the Messiah,
Apostles, even Salvation are Jewish. The New Testament is Jewish!
John 4:22. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews
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. 
Elohim is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 

New Jerusalem is Jewish. Are we somewhat anti Semitic, having been influenced by the Romans in the Dark Ages, that we do not wish to praise
King of Israel in Jewish Paradise? Again, Zechariah 14 will you
go there? Will you desire to praise Him at the Feasts?
While Protestants support their state-licensed denominations,
and indirectly support seminaries. There, they may teach the Law
is annulled, and with Higher Criticism attack the authority and
inspiration of the Scriptures. Reiterating, see Romans 11 in The Word.  

“ARE THERE TWO NEW COVENANTS, ONE FOR THE JEWS, THE OTHER FOR THE GENTILES?” No, YeremiYah 31 refers to the one New Covenant. Hebrews 8 & 10 addresses Judah and “Israel, the Northern Kingdom.
If you've been grafted into the good Olive Tree, justified by Faith in the true Messiah, baptized into His Name, confessed Him and repented, and even have called upon the Name of YaHVaH, you have been saved from death. Here is proof: Romans 11, 2:29, 
Ephesians. 2:12, That at that time ye were without YaHOSHA, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without YaH in the world: 
 Col. 2:9-14 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 
 Galatians 3:29 And if ye be YaHOSHA Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. 
  Deut. 10:16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. 
Proverbs 10:8 The wise in heart will receive commandments; but a prating fool shall fall.
Proverbs 3:7 Trust in YaHVaH with all your heart and LEAN NOT UNTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.

Rom.1:24 28, 2 Thes. 2:11, Is 66, Jer 17:9
We know that the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked, who can know it?

But, many will live by every Word, and by YAHVAH’s New Covenant. Matthew 4:4. Hebrews 10:16.
With no Torah, (the Word) and IF IT IS NOT our Standard, then sinful dancing, drinking, cussing and smoking and anything-goes.  
But as for me and my house, we will serve YaHVaH and His Messiah YaHOSHA. Psalm 101:2.
Think on the Word. The Messiah IS the Word. He wrote it. See John 1.. In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with YaH, and the Word was YaH. 

But live by every Word, and by YAHVAH’s Covenant. Matthew 4:4. The question to ask: Does what you believe and study affect your behavior? Is it all about loving the heavenly Father?

1Kings_17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of Yah, and that the word of YaHVaH in thy mouth is truth.
NehemiYah_1:8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

Psa_119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
119:89 LAMED. For ever, O YaHVaH, thy word is settled in heaven.
119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
119:105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
Jer_15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, Oh YaHVaH of Hosts or armies.


ETERNAL SECURITY

The real question is, "How many sins am I willing to commit to do
violence to Torah and pour vomit upon the precious offering of
The Messiah?" "How many sins would it take to impale Him afresh upon the tree of torture at Calvary?"
