Straight Talk – Book of the Law vs Book of The Covenant-Clearning up doctrinal confusion. A comment reply!

This is a post I posted on our google plus account! Please read it all.

This is what happens when people teach half truths…. You get people making statements like this and no one correcting them. If we are to keep eating up the doctrine of the book of the law vs the book of the covenant and not stop to really consider what that means, we will land up with serious theological complications later and most of all as said many times over and over, we will land up with people who believe that there is no reason to mature in their faith because they are of the spiritual seed of Abraham and as the book of the law vs book of the covenant proponents state that is the only covenant that we are to follow the one of Abraham. He walked out the “book of the covenant”
1. Abraham was not a nation hence why there was no need for the rest of the Torah at that stage, are we not now a nation ? A people the seed of the promise to Abraham those of the sand on the sea? Are we not still a rebellious people who need a change of our heart? Are we not still a people that struggle with unity and community? So, therefore, is the rest of the Torah not then applicable to us as we grow into what Father Abraham grew into by Faith? Is this not the purpose of the rest of the Torah to help us to take on the image that was lost in the garden? So how then can we all be at the same spiritual level as Abraham was? Can you see the reasoning?
2. What about the instructions to the nation on how to inherit the promised land? Does this not apply to us?
Someone posted this on Torah to the tribes Facebook. Now many of you will say brother Yosef why are you being so controversial? Am I? Or am I standing up for what I believe to be truth and showing why this produces falsehood and half-baked believers that are not aware of the importance of spiritual maturity because they are hearing that all they need to do is get saved and walk the same way as Abraham and then they taking all that and twisting it just like the church to see how little of YHVH’s commandments they will need to do. This is the same lies that are proclaimed by those that came out of the church and found the Torah a burden instead of a delight. By mixing up YHVH’s mercy for judgment they make this doctrine stick in the minds of those that see Abba as only a Judge and not a merciful Elohim. Let me explain.

Here is the comment on Torah to the Tribes Facebook: Name removed for privacy: So when Adam and Eve sinned, they were given the Melchizedek Covenant, by YHWH Himself? They sinned a Covenant was established, Israel sinned the Levitical book of the law covenant was placed on them. A thematic connection? WE all have sinned and he finally gave us Yahusha, who just had to die for us and establish it once for all, because we are so pathetic.

The strange thing is that there is no one who has chosen to correct this comment. So I will because firstly its false and secondly it’s just plain wrong to think of Abba and Yeshua in this way and then to go so far as to say that we are pathetic???????

So when Adam and Eve sinned, they were given the Melchizedek Covenant, by YHWH Himself?

** Firstly NO! The covenant of the Priesthood was given to them before as they were given dominion to rule over the earth and to serve YHVH as a priest. This is what is means to be a King. They were in the royal order from the beginning as they were His children and of His seed. They were formed in His image from the beginning. It was after the sin that their offspring now were in their fallen image.

Gen 5 states that: Gen 5:1 This is the book of the genealogy of Aḏam. In the day that Elohim created man, He made him in the likeness of Elohim. Gen 5:2 Male and female He created them, and He blessed them, and called their name ‘Aḏam’ in the day they were created. Gen 5:3 And Aḏam lived one hundred and thirty years, and brought forth a son in his own likeness, after his image, and called his name Shĕth.
After the sin of the Garden, they are expelled and no longer have the right to be in the presence of the King. Yet an act of mercy takes place and Abba Father kills an animal and covers them with the skin. A true act of mercy not justice. His mercy produces grace and covers them and protects them. Yet now the way back to Him is going to be a struggle and that is why the voice of the Ruach is in exile calling to man to return. Yet if you look at the words and the symbolism used for the skin you come to see it was the skin of the animal that was kept by the priests. YHVH is clothing them with the garments and showing them how to have that priestly intimacy restored.

They sinned a Covenant was established,

** Again NO! Sin does not produce a covenant!!! They sinned, yet grace was established because of the covenant. They were meant to be dead.

Israel sinned the Levitical book of the law covenant was placed on them.

** Do you all see now what this teaching is producing in those who hear it??? Falsehood and twisted theology. If there is sin there is judgment and complications. Because of the golden calf incident YHVH gave the people a choice yet they chose not to stand with Moses so judgment took place, yet those that stood with Moses were shown grace. YHVH then said that he desires to kill them all, yet Moses pleaded and they were saved (Grace) YHVH then bestows on the Levites the duty of being His priests to stand a mediator between Himself and man and to teach them the Torah. They became the schoolmaster the one’s teaching and showing the people the way back to Him. Everything in the Tabernacle is there to show the way back to the Father. So is the so-called book of the law a imposed thing? NO! its given out of YHVH’s mercy to show them how to serve Him because they have an inherent problem and it’s in there flesh. It needs to be restored back to the way it was in the garden. The levitical priesthood was never a bad thing it was given for a time till the promise came – Messiah.

A thematic connection?

**This is not thematics its speculation at its worst to say the least. A thematic connection shows the truth, not speculation based on a theology. Thematic connections would be the importance of holiness vs profanity by looking at Lev, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and the words of Yeshua. Not that because man sinned they are now pathetic and have to have laws imposed on them???

WE all have sinned and he finally gave us Yahusha, who just had to die for us and establish it once for all, because we are so pathetic.

** Yes we all have sinned, yet He gave us Yeshua so that we might be reconciled to Him, because on our own it’s impossible.
Jn 3:16 “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. Jn 3:17 “For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. Jn 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim.
The sacrifices of animals can only cover our sins never remove the conscious of a person. He gave Yeshua not finally but ultimately as He was the promise that was spoken from the very beginning. Yeshua didn’t die for us because we pathetic he died for us so that He might become the mediator of that covenant built on better promises so that our sins might be taken away not just covered. He did this because of His great mercy and love because on our own we cannot. He never instituted anything new. What is new is the mediator.
“Hebrews 9:15 speaks of Messiah as the mediator of the new covenant. That means that Messiah is not the maker of the covenant. He is the mediator between the parties making the covenant. The parties of the New Covenant, as presented in Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Hebrews 8:8-12, are YHVH and the house of Israel (Daniel Gruber, Copernicus and the Jews, p. 45). This simple mistranslation, misrepresentation, and misunderstanding are foundational to virtually every Christian theology. It creates the illusion of a conflict within the Bible itself (Ibid., p. 47).” In the end, there is no “new” testament and “old” testament. If fact, there is no “testament” at all. The Bible is about covenants, not testaments. The very existence of the page separating the Old Testament from the New Testament is a lie. Tear it out. It’s one book about one YHVH and one people who have entered into living covenants together. Any theology that suggests otherwise is a consequence of its invention by Jerome. There has never been a “new” or second covenant. There has only ever been One Covenant made with the house of Israel and Yeshua restored it as YHVH promised He would in the Person of Israel’s Messiah.

 

I know that those that hold to the doctrine will attack and email and say all kinds of things, but in the end you cannot deny the facts that it was out of His love that He spared His children and gave them the book of the law as you all put it so that they might be taught the right way to approach him. In the day of Abraham, there was no tabernacle because YHVH had not yet dwelt with man. If you choose to go back to that covenant as your basis for life you will miss much of the principles that were given to the nation and you will fail to mature in the manner YHVH wants you to as a community.

With Shalom in Yeshua-Yosef
