Do Ewe Know Where Ewe Are Going To?

“Now, Israel, listen to the rules and to the regulations that I [am] teaching you to do, in order that you may live and you may go [in] and you may take possession of the land that Yahweh, the God of your ancestors, [is] giving to you. You must not add to the word that I [am] commanding you, and you shall not take away from it [in order] to keep the commands of Yahweh your God that I [am] commanding you [to observe]. Your eyes have seen what Yahweh did with [the case of] Baal Peor, for {each} man that followed after Baal Peor Yahweh your God destroyed from your midst. But you, the [ones] holding fast to Yahweh your God, [are] all alive {today}. See, I now teach you rules and regulations [just] as Yahweh my God has commanded me, to observe [them] [just] so in the midst of the land where you [are] going, to take possession of it. And {you must observe them diligently}, for that [is] your wisdom and your insight before the eyes of the people, who will hear all [of] these rules, and they will say, ‘Surely this great nation [is] a wise and discerning people.’ For what great nation [has] for it a god near to it as Yahweh our God, whenever we call [upon] him? And what [other] great nation has for it just rules and regulations just like {this whole} law that I [am] setting {before} you {today}? “However, {take care} for yourself and watch your inner self closely, so that you do not forget the things that your eyes have seen, so that they do not slip from your mind all the days of your life; and you shall make them known to your children and to {your grandchildren}. [Remember] the day that you stood {before} Yahweh your God at Horeb {when Yahweh said to me}, ‘Summon for me the people so that I can tell them my words, that they may learn to fear me all [of] the days they [are] alive on the earth and so [that] they may teach their children.’ D’varim/Deuteronomy 4:1-10 (LEB)

In the above section from the Torah, Moshe is reminding the B’nai/children Isra’el that they are to guard the instructions they are given and live by them. In doing so, it will provoke the other nations to jealousy with the honorable rules under which they are governed, causing them to admire the authority they are under. This is exactly what Y’shua is addressing at the sermon on the mount, where he speaks of a light that is to shine for others to see the truth. It is also why we are to not to hide our light under a basket because then no one can see the light. One of the topics being discussed here is the concept that we cannot say one thing and live differently, as this misleads people into thinking I can proclaim there are rules but I do not necessarily have to live by them. Yah’s Way does not allow exemptions for his people to violate the rules, yet expecting everyone else to comply with them. Likewise I cannot pray away my disobedience, but I have to become obedient. Yah expects us to live in a manner that displays His character, not ours. He has stated more than once that he is not a human being that he can lie, therefore only the human being is capable of deception.

Unfortunately the biggest perpetrators of twisting the truth are those who are charged with delivering it. The saddest part comes when people believe their own lies, and this is exactly what Isra’el has done. The Northern Kingdom fell heavily into their own deception by turning away from the Torah and its guidelines for life. The Kings of the house of Isra’el caused the people to drift farther and farther from the path laid out by the Father. Changing the appointed times and the rules of conduct brought judgment to Efraim and led finally to the scattering/exile of the 10 Tribes throughout the world. This dispersion continues even in our own day and will not be remedied until the gathering of the house of Isra’el takes place, which will lead to the reunion with the house of Y’hudah. This restoration is what the B’rit Chadashah/New Covenant is all about. Until this takes place, the kingdom will not exist on the earth as the promises of Yah are totally manifested in this healing.

When thou shalt beget children and children’s children, and shalt have remained long in the land, if ye corrupt yourselves, and make any graven image, or likeness of anything, and work evil in the sight of the Lord thy God, to provoke him to anger, I call heaven and earth to record against you this day, that ye shall shortly perish from the land, whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it: ye shall not prolong your days therein, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the Lord shall scatter you among the people, and ye shall be left few in number among the nations, whither the Lord shall bring you: And there ye shall serve gods: even the work of man’s hand, wood, and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, at the length, if thou return to the Lord thy God, and be obedient unto his voice, (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers, which he sware unto them. D’varim 4:25-31 (GNV)

The key to the Covenant being remembered by the Eternal, is knowing what that agreement entails … not knowing this allows too many people to believe that the contract is something different than what the Creator stated it is. What was promised to Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov is a land on the planet we call earth. He has also specifically laid out the boundaries of this inheritance, we have no grounds for altering this arrangement. To move a boundary marker involves trespassing on another’s assigned territory, this involves violating the Torah. We have not been given permission to take anything that we have not been promised, we should not steal. Desiring to possess something that is not ours is coveting which is also against Torah.

How long will we who are descended from the 10 Tribes continue to be in denial that Yah clearly expects us to change our ways/repent and return to those instructions given to us at Mount Sinai. The reason we are not in the land promised to our fathers is because we have forsaken the Covenant we agreed to in the wilderness. Being scattered is a punishment and not a reward. As long as people continue to believe that our sin does not count, forgiveness cannot take place and we remain outside the camp. We are also not going to go to heaven, as this is no where promised in scripture by the Father. He will never allow a rebellious people to be blessed/praised for bad conduct. We can not expect Him to bow down to our selfish desires as this is contrary to His character.

To many people seem to believe that there will be a distinct and separate inheritance for the Jews/House of Y’hudah and another for the House of Isra’el. They go so far as to even state that those are in two or more places on the Earth, this completely disagrees with Yah. Throughout the Torah, Prophets, Writings, and B’rit Chadashah/New Covenant we are told that everything is based on what Avraham was guaranteed by the Most High, and nothing else. All people on the planet have been allotted a region where they are to live and this is spoken of by Yah himself. Remember He stated that He cannot lie, so why do we think He will permit us to change His promises, to all humanity. Did He change His instructions to Adam And Chavah/Eve concerning the fruit from the tree forbidden for them to eat? We need to stop treating the King as if He is some puppet for us to manipulate according to our own agenda.

As long as a rebellious creation continues to despise the edicts of our creator, how can we expect anything but disaster to be our reward? There are minimal standards of conduct expected by Yah from His handiwork and that is what each of us will be judged by. The more we know the higher the expectations the Eternal has of us and those criteria will not be lowered in order to give us a pass. Interestingly when Noach and his family depart from the ark, they receive a group of instructions pertaining to human conduct and what the Creator expects of them. One of these involves judgment applied to an individual who has killed another person – the verdict handed down is that anyone who sheds the blood of another, their blood is to be spilled as payment for their action. They are to be killed for having killed another human being. Moshe is given a method to allow someone who accidentally kills another to receive a penalty which will not require their death, this system is called the cities of refuge. They will remain alive as long as they abide within one of the cities if they are found to be innocent of intentionally taking another individual’s life. However certain stipulations will apply to this merciful action and this is if they ever go outside the city, the kinsman avenger will be able to take their life without any consequences of guilt. Absolute freedom could only come with the death of the Kohen Gadol/High Priest, and until this event occurred the accidental killer is basically under a minimum security sentence. That person is protected but does not have free range outside the city, only inside are they safe.

Then Moshe called to all Isra’el and said to them, “Listen, Isra’el, to the laws and rulings which I am announcing in your hearing today, so that you will learn them and take care to obey them. ADONAI our God made a covenant with us at Horev. ADONAI did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us -with us, who are all of us here alive today. D’varim 5:1-3 (CJB) The context of this passage obviously cannot be referring to the generation who died in the wilderness as they were at Mount Sinai; therefore this reference must be to a previous generation, most likely the patriarchs. When people do not understand covenants, they can assume that Avraham and his descendants are all under the same level of expectation. This is faulty reasoning based on not paying attention to what is actually stated in the text. Avraham was promised his heirs would receive a land grant for a specific piece of real estate, which they never received themselves. Each generation of covenants received better promises than the previous one had, not a different pact entirely. Every contract increased the amount of expectations in order for that arrangement to be honored by the Father. Nowhere in scripture is a generation given less responsibility than their predecessors.

Y’shua is often misrepresented as having done away with the Torah given to Moshe, however this would be in violation of the already established covenant pattern. At no point is anyone ever given a contract with lower expectations than the one that preceded it. Do people not realize we cannot return to the garden as long as we are unrepentant regarding the rules handed down by the Creator? Details matter, therefore when we read the Bible we should pay close attention to the information contained therein. Any who believe that the New Covenant is with the nations/gentiles instead of Ya’akov’s descendants are making a grave error. Please read Yirmeyahu/Jeremiah chapter 31 before you jump to inaccurate conclusions, as you might find what you have been taught contradicts Yah’s promise. Yesha’yahu/Isaiah asks the question “who has believed our report”, do we?

When Y’shua and Sha’ul speak of the man of lawlessness they are only speaking about someone in violation of the Torah given to Moshe at Mount Sinai. Anyone who has never joined the 12 tribes in this pact can not be the man of lawlessness or the man of sin. Only an individual who has drunk of the cup and eaten the bread can be in disobedience concerning this agreement. Eating the bread and drinking the cup is a much more serious undertaking than what most have been led to believe. As Sha’ul said to the Corinthians in his warning to the people, to not take lightly or be ignorant of the significance of this action. Our brother stated that those who did not discern what they were participating in became sick or even died. This is one of several ways to seal a covenant and to not realize these consequences have cost many dearly. This is not some simple ritual but a very serious undertaking, do not take this cup or the bread if you do not know what it means to partake of them.

We were warned in the wilderness that accepting the instructions/Torah is a major agreement between us and Yah. Moshe declared the brevity of this matter to be of the highest priority and that we should not think that there are no consequences. Y’shua tells us that simply knowing who he is, or believing that he is the promised one/Mashiach is not sufficient hope for us to rely on. Asking that Y’shua would come into your heart is actually asking for the Torah to be on our hearts. How do you know this statement is true, because the Master himself told us he only does his Fathers will. Yochanan/John describes Y’shua as the Word made flesh and this means that the human being lived the Torah. Isra’el only has one Torah and will be judged according to what is contained in the directions Moshe received from the Enternal, and nothing less.

If you consider yourself ingrafted into the olive tree which Sha’ul speaks of, then you have joined the commonwealth of Isra’el and can no longer fall back on the previous covenant you were part of. Kefa/Peter admonishes us to not fall away from the truth as there is great jeopardy to those who do so. It would be better to never know the truth than to know the truth and reject it. These are the ways of the Kingdom, and there is no other way to enter into it besides the Torah. Y’shua said the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, which means we can start obeying the instructions right now and we will have a head start in the race. Does anyone really want to hear Y’shua tell them to “go away from me I do not know you because you have rejected my Fathers ways” (this is my phrasing of what Y’shua’s intent is). How many express their belief that Y’shua/Jesus is their Savior, while at the same time rejecting everything the son says about his Father. Obedience is a four letter word to many and in their view has absolutely nothing to do with their relationship with the Mashiach. I am greatly concerned because this is the predominant opinion most hold dear to their hearts, what a tragic mistake they are making. The Emperor Constantine was a great enemy of the Mashiach AND Moshe, he then reintroduced the apostasy of Yarov’am/Jeroboam I. The falling away is from Torah, as it is impossible for a sinner to fall away from the state they are already in.

The devastation that the Assyrian Empire was allowed to impose on the Northern Kingdom was allowed by Yah. Even today many of those who are most likely the actual descendants of the 10 Tribes, continue to deny we are in exile and that it is a punishment not a reward. The Kingdom of Elohim is not going to be governed by the concepts of Christianity or Judaism and neither of these systems should believe otherwise. Both of these religions need to accept there is only one king who is immortal, without end. Even Y’shua had to be resurrected from the dead by the Father. Y’shua was a man with Elohim in him, this is why he prayed in the garden for the cup to pass from him if his Father had another way to redeem us. In his letter to the Romans, Sha’ul stated that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Elohim is life, this premise is derived from the curse leveled against Adam at the fall in the garden of Eden. Yah told the human being that if he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he would die since he was only dust that was given the breath of life. Without the breath there is no life, because we are not immortal souls and we never will be. We began to die when we no longer had access to the tree of life, do not be deceived by the snake in the garden. Chazon/Revelation tells us we will once again have the opportunity to eat the fruit that gives life, if we will adhere to the way of the Maker. Whose report did Adam believe? Do we continue to accept the same false information he did?

Reconciliation is Yah’s plan for the 12 tribes, this cannot happen as long as Vayikra/Leviticus 19:18 is ignored. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people; but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am YAHWEH. (HRB) Animosity is still prevalent in the family, and healing can only take place if we humble ourselves towards each other. Only then can the Healer repair the wound. The circumcised heart is one that has submitted itself to the only authority over all of creation, until then selfishness and greed will rule over us. Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to do so? Amos 3:3 (NIV)

Shalom Aleichem!
