WHAT IS TORAH?
WHY SHOULD WE STUDY THE TORAH DILIGENTLY?
WHY SHOULD WE CARE TO OBSERVE THE TORAH DILIGENTLY?
Clarification of what TORAH is about…
Ephesians 2:8-9 Names of God Bible (NOG)
8 God saved you through faith as an act of kindness. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. 9 It’s not the result of anything you’ve done, so no one can brag about it.
WE ARE NOT SAVED FROM SIN AND THE POWER OF SIN BY LAW/WORKS!!!
Rather, we are SAVED BY YAH’S GRACE ALONE THROUGH FAITH IN YAHUSHUA (a.k.a JESUS/YESHUA) our Messiah!!!
We are CLEANSED BY YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD!
After accepting YAH’S SALVATION (which is YAHUSHUA), what next? How do remained SAVED until we leave his earth?
RUACH HA KODESH also called SHKINYINYAH GLORY (HOLY SPIRIT) has revealed that we can in fact lose our SALVATION (gift from YAH) that’s why we are told to WORK OUT OUR SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING (Philippians 2:12).
This is when the LAW comes in amongst other OBLIGATIONS AS AN ADOPTED CHILD OF YAH through YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD! First and foremost, work out your SALVATION by THROUGH PRAYER and BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH YAH. Then add reading and observing YAH’S TORAH which includes both the OLD and NEW TESTAMENT.
Note that under the NEW COVENANT (a.k.a NEW TESTAMENT), once we accept YAH’S SALVATION and washed by YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD, our IDENTITY changes. We no longer live for ourselves but YAHUSHUA (Romans 12:1-2)! Some of us are HIS BRIDE whereas others are HIS GUESTS (Matthew 22; Matthew 25; Revelation 7, 14 & 19).
As a BRIDE & GUESTS OF YAHUSHUA, we were betrothed unto to first through YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD SACRIFICE and then the GIVING & RECEIVING OF YAH’S TORAH and finally RUACH HA KODESH.
YAH’S (GOD’S) TORAH which over the years has been (unsuitably) translated as LAW, is YAH’S LOVING INSTRUCTIONS / GUIDELINES to see us through this wilderness called earth where YAH sent us to BE AMBASSADORS FOR HIM (Matthew 5 – Light & Salt of the world).
Obedience to YAH’S TORAH plus BAPTISM OF THE RUACH HA KODESH is our ENGAGEMENT RING, YAH’S SEAL UPON US as seen in various SCRIPTURES (Ephesians, Philippians, Corinthians). YAHUSHUA and Apostle Paul did NOT get rid of the TORAH! They ENFORCED IT! The current translations of the HOLY SCRIPTURES have created so much confusion over this issue. Praise YAH for clarification in this last days…
The TORAH is a great gift from YAH as seen in Exodus 20. It was received on the FEAST OF SHAVUOT also known as FEAST OF PENTECOST because years later on the same day, YAH poured out HIS RUACH HA KODESH (Acts 2) just like HE had promised in Joel 2:28-30. The Orthodox Jews usually dress up all in white as BRIDES would plus carry flowers around as on a WEDDING DAY during the FEAST OF SHAVUOT/WEEKS hence showing how much VITAL YAH’S TORAH is to HIM for us!!!
The TWO GREATEST COMMANDMENTS as defined by YAHUSHUA is Matthew 22 are just a SUMMARY of the entire TORAH!
Love YAH with all you have and Love your neighbour as yourself.
How do you do this?
The ANSWER can be found in the TORAH in greater detail. About 613 INSTRUCTIONS on various AREAS OF LIFE were given plus the TEN COMMANDMENTS. More information on this can be found in our teaching called “BE YE HOLY AS I AM HOLY”.
As seen in Joshua 1:8, we are commanded and required to READ AND STUDY YAH’S TORAH DAILY plus ACT ON IT (as seen in James 3 so that we are NOT SHAMEFUL BRIDES & GUESTS OF YAHUSHUA hence being good reflections and representatives of YAH in thus Spiritually Dark World! That’s partly pur weapon of overcoming Satan and his demons plus this evil) world.
This is what most people and DO NOT WANT TO UNDERSTAND!
Furthermore, YAH says in 1 Peter 1:16 as well as the book of Leviticus that, “BE HOLY AS I AM HOLY”.
The word “BE” is a VERB hence A DOING WORD. This implies that we achieve YAH’S HOLINESS through OUR ACTIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS TORAH!
RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS are two different things.
- RIGHTEOUSNESS can only be achieved by accepting YAH’S SALVATION which is YAHUSHUA.
- HOLINESS is achieved through LOVING OBEDIENCE TO YAH’S TORAH! We think we know and understand BEING HOLY plus OBEYING THE TWO GREATEST COMMANDMENTS but we don’t all outside of the TORAH!!!
We need YAH’S TORAH so very much so as to make it to HEAVEN! Satan too has his Laws which can be followed all the way to HELL. Which one do you prefer, YAH’S TORAH (COMMANDMENTS/INSTRUCTIONS/LAWS) or Satan’s Laws (CLAWS)? This is YAH’S TORAH is read weekly, so as to gain INSIGHT!!!
