For 400 years the Israelites lived as slaves under the yoke of an Egyptian anarchical and turbulent Law, govern and master by Pharaoh gods, and Egyptian idols; When God took His people out of Egypt, they came out having a Slave mentality. Even people from other Nations who saw the Miracles and wonders of God around Egypt in the lives of the Israelites came out with them, with the same slavery attitude and mentality.
Deut 30:19 I call the heavens and the earth to witness about you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore choose life so that you and your descendants may live,
Meaning “FREEDOM NOT FROM THE TORAH (TEACHINGS OF GOD) BUT FROM THE YOKE OF THE LAW WITHIN THE TORAH.”
Rom 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the Torah sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the Torah. For I would not have known about coveting if the Torah had not said, “You shall not covet.
Many didn’t understand and even opposed to the walk that was set for them to live under this beautiful Almighty God and Yeshua His son a Savior to the world... In 1Timoty 1:6-10 we find a very simple explanation about Torah;
in verse 6 Some, having missed the mark, have turned away to fruitless discussion
- wanting to be teachers of Torah, even though they do not understand what they keep saying or what they so dogmatically assert.
- But we know that the Torah is good if one uses it legitimately,
- knowing that the Torah is not given for a righteous person but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and worldly, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,
- the sexually immoral, homosexuals, slave-traders, liars, perjurers, and for anything else that opposes sound teaching
Gal 3: 13 “Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the Torah, having become a curse for us for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree, Quoting Deut. 21:23 “for anyone hanged is a curse of God”
“WE ARE NOT UNDER THE CURSE OF THE LAW IN THE TORAH”
Yeshua became a curse for us, to release us from it, to make life freely available through faith and trust in His mercy and reconciliation to Himself, bought by the blood, the death and the resurrection of the Son of the living God, to understand of God’s grace mercy and forgiveness, that we are no longer held to account for our sins.
The very essence of the Covenant was given in the word of God through the Prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel as well the first coming of our Savior in the flesh through the prophets Isaiah, and Micah.
In Hebrew, each one of the covenants made by God with man was named as well seal with blood for generations or forever. This is the first time in the Torah also known as the book of Covenants, that a covenant was not named like God the Father did before.
God announcing HIS Covenant with His people
Jer. 31:31"Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant (Hebrew Brit Chadasha) with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
Not like the one He gave.
Jer. 31:32“Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says Adonai”
In the desert
The covenant by which the people of Israel should live their lives start with:
Deut 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
Which Yeshua, later on, repeated them so they will not be forgotten: Matthew 22:37 Luke 10:27,Mark 12:30“Yeshua said to him And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength
The differences between put and write
Deut. 6:6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart”
When things are just putting in your heart can be very easy to forget about them.
Jer. 31:33But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, say the LORD: I will put My Torah in their minds (in Hebrew close to them), and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
The difference in teaching
Deut. 6:7 “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up”.
Jer. 31:34No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD, for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.
Jer 31:34 for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."
Contemporary to Jeremiah is the prophet Ezekiel which the Lord use to bring confirmation with some extra important points that will shade more light in their and our walk. Eze 36:24-27.
Final purpose in the Grace of Yeshua as a Savior for Israel and the Nations
Romans 10:4 “For Messiah is the end of the Law for righteousness to everyone who believes” The end means Thaloos in Greek; goal, purpose, and target.
Righteous in Greek Dikios innocent, faultless, guiltless (Dikalosune used in the Septuagint for TZEDEK in Hebrew Justice) is a Divine arrangement by which Good leads a man to a state acceptable to Him.
Believes mean; in the Greek Postevo faith by which a man embraces Yeshua.
So Romans 10:4 “Messiah is the purpose of the Torah forever faultless one who has faith embracing a divine covenant which will lead man to be accepted by God”
It is important to make a very important difference between Hebraic and Jewish roots. The Jewish roots will take someone to books written by man and away as far as can be from the teachings in the Tanach. Sad is that many teachings in the Body of Messiah are base in a Hellenistic foundation which is Greek roman terminology that is not in accordance to the word of God. Teaching and instructions from the Tanach will bring to life a Brit Chadasha (New Covenant) analogy because most of the fulfillments in were thought in the Tanach.
We came to the conclusion last class that the Old covenant will be the Torah of Moses and the New Covenant will be the Tora of Yeshua. Or we can said this is the Gospel according to Moses and this is the Gospel according to Yeshua.
The term Brit Chadasha is the Hebrew concept for a new covenant. This revelation was revealed in Jeremiah 31:31 where we find the word Chadasha which means New and valuable information. Later the same verse is quoted and confirm in Hebrew 8:8 where we find the word New in Greek is kainos of a new kind, recently made fresh.
