OLD TESTAMENT VERSES THE NEW TESTAMENT-A MESSAGE FOR HEBREW ISRAELITES
All Praises the the One True Elohim and ONLY SAVIOR!
Shalom Lekol Yisrael,
The subject of the acceptance of the "New Testament," is a subject Hebrew Yisraelites should be cozignant of.
Should the NT and the main character of the NT be looked to for spiritual guidance for Yisrael? If you have not had a chance to read the articles concerning this subject on this, the LawKeepers website, I would encourage you to do so. Much scriptural insight can be gain from the reminders of Elohim's words spoken in the OT.
As most of you know, the Law Keepers do not consult the Greek/Arabic writings that comprise the so-called "New Testament" in any fashion or form. Elohim's Laws, Statues and Precepts are perfect and he gave to Yisrael HIS word and not the word of JC/Yeshua or the writers of the NT.
YHWH's curses were still in full affect under the Greeks and Romans for Yisrael's refusing to "OBEY HIS VOICE." See Deuteronomy 28.
JC/Yeshua, the main character in the NT and so-called "savior of the world," by claiming he came to "save" Yisrael; was going AGAINST YHWH's curses in the book of Deuteronomy. His claiming he came to "save" Yisrael was not OBEYING HIS VOICE.
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
"But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 10:6
"But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 15:24
This admonition and direction was clearly the opposite of "Thus saith the Lord."
"And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone." Deuteronomy 28:64
"Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the Lord done thus unto this land? What meaneth the heat of this great anger? "Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt: "For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them: "And the Lord rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 29:26
These curses were placed upon all of Yisrael for refusing to follow all of the law given to the Yisraelites through Moses when YHWH brought them out of the land of Egypt.
JC/Yeshua should have known, because of Yisraels failure to accept ALL of the WORDs of THE LAW, that He could not "save" Yisrael or act in the capacity as THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD" when we were to go into captivity for our trespasses against HIM.
"And the Lord saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;
"I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them." Jeremiah 9:13,16
"Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it." Jeremiah 6:19
Furthermore YHWH is the ONLY Savior ACCORDING TO HIS WORD
"Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counse together: who hath declared this from ancient time? Who hath told it from that time? Have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
"Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear." Isaiah 45:21,22,23
Nothing I have stated above has not been stated by Tziona, Sholevi and others either through the Lawkeepers website or on other Hebrew Israelite boards. And the words are not ours. We take no credit for it but give all credit to Elohim because HE SAID IT!
Today, many Hebrew Yisraelites just coming into the knowledge of their heritage, and some long in the knowledge of themselves have difficulty in letting go of the NT. There first question always is, " Do you believe in JC as your savior/messiah"?
Whether the main character of the NT is called by the christian name JC or Yeshua Ben Joseph, Hebrew Israelites must understand that this man could not have come to "save" israel and will not "return" to save Israel.
Only the Holy One of Israel will "save" Israel.
"Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be Joyful in God my Savior." Habakkuk 3:18
"This is what the Lord Almighty has says, I will save my people from the countries of the east and of the west, I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God."
"As you have been an object of cursing among the nations O Judah and Israel, so will I save you, and you will be a blessing." Zechariah 8:8,9.
"But I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no God but me, no savior except me." Hosea 13:4.
The teaching that the NT puts forth that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, did away with the law covenant and established JC as the Mediator of a NEW covenant open to all nations through grace, is contrary to what YHWH said would be the final restoration of His Chosen people Yisrael.
"To Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better world than the blood of Abel"??? Heb 12:24
The following passages prove that YHWH did not cast off Yisrael, God's namesake forever, but that the time would come, as it is now that his chosen would search for him in the lands of our captivity and he would lift up his hand to gather us to the land promised to our forefathers.
" For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD save thy people, the remnant of Israel" Jeremiah 31:7
"Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind, and the lame, the woman with child and her that travailth with child together: a great company shall return thither." Jeremiah 31:8
"And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border" Jeremiah 31:17
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covanant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah"
"Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day I took them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, saith the LORD:
"But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts and will be their God, and they shall be my people."
"And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sins no more." Jeremiah 31:31-34
Only when Yisrael acknowledges YHWH as our ONLY SAVIOR and follow ONLY "HIS WORD" and return to observing all the commandments HE gave to the nation of Yisrael, only then will our return in righteousness to HIS Laws and Statues Will HE return HIS face to save us.
He does this not for "our" sake but HIS HOLY NAME SAKE!
We don't need JC or any other "mediator" to have forgiveness of our sins, for our sins were failing to OBEY HIS LAWS!
"And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YHWH, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
"For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
"Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
"A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
"And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
"And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. Ezekiel 36:24-33.
"And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword." Ezekiel 39:23
“And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.” Isaiah 12:4
" But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and people shall flow unto it."
"And many nations shall come, and say Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths,: for the law shall go forth out of Zion, and word of the LORD from Jerusalem" Micah 3:2
These words are the words of the Holy One of Ysrael, YHWH. JC/Yeshua did not even exist when these words were spoken. The Holy One of Yisrael is our Savior.
Furthermore, any inference that The Holy One of Yisrael and JC are the same person is not supported any where in the Torah or Tanakh and only by taking the teachings of the NT and imposing them on the Hebrew Scriptures is such a thought even taught.
As decendants of the Biblical Hebrew Israelites, we do not need the writings of the NT to return to following the laws and precepts our forefather's failed to keep, that has resulted in our still dwelling in the lands of our captivity under gentile rule. It is clear that YHWH is our savior, and wholly returning to him with his Laws in our hearts, this time he will act.
"Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says; 'Return unto me declares the Lord Almighty, and I will return to you." Zechariah 1:3
Just as HE SAVED our forefathers out of Egypt and his doings are remembered til this day, HE will also SAVE us and bring us into our own land.
"Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
"But, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers." Jeremiah 16:14,15
We Hebrew Yisraelites that do not go beyond the words of the Law, have the greatest opportunity in the world to exalt, honor and make known the mercies of our Powerful and wonderful God and His Holy name YHWH. We do so without the need of the so-called "new" testament but only HIS WORD recorded in the Torah and Tanakh. ("old testament.")
This is a message not only to Hebrew Israelites still in the NT, but also to a wicked world.
ALL PRASIES TO THE HOLY ONE OF YISRAEL AND BLESSED BE HIS HOLY NAME!
In HIS Service
Adon Yehudah Ben Yisrael
