Matthew 15:1-3 Then there came to יהושע scribes and Pharisees from Yerushalayim, saying, “Why do Your taught ones transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” But He answering, said to them, “Why do you also transgress the command of Elohim because of your tradition?”
Yeshua taught against the traditions of men. He upheld and walked according to the Torah of YHWH. They had placed their traditions above the commandments of YHWH given to Moses. The majority of christians do the same today, by placing traditions of men (a lot of pagan traditions at that) above the Torah Yeshua walked in and according to.
Some of you say the “law was nailed to the cross”. And there was a law “nailed” to the cross. Its just not the law the churchianity tells you it is. If you have eyes to see, you will see the entire chapter from Pauls writings they use to “prove” their point is all about the law of sin and death, and not the entirety of the Torah.
There are holidays that are according to the tradition of men and then there are Holy Days according to the Torah of Yahweh! We obey the laws of the land as long as the laws do not go against the laws of Yahweh.”
I DO NOT OBEY/FOLLOW THE TORAH OF YAHWEH TO BE SAVED!
I OBEY THE TORAH OF YAHWEH “BECAUSE’ I AM SAVED.
I prove my love through obedience. As Yeshua Himself stated in John 14:15 – “If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.” His commands are the same as His Fathers commands because He did nothing on His own except what the Father gave Him to do as He said in John 5:19.
If you do have eyes to see and wondering where to start your walk in obedience, begin as it was given in Acts 15:19-21. “Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the gentiles who are turning to Elohim, but that we write to them to abstain from the defilements of idols, and from whoring, and from what is strangled, and from blood. For from ancient generations Moses has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” As you can see they are already keeping the Sabbath. They are listening to Moses every Sabbath so that they can learn and grow in Torah as they mature in the body of Messiah.
Test everything according to the Spirit and the Scriptures (in context). Do not seek outside of the Spirit and Scripture for His Truth and you will not be mislead.
Bless you in the master Yeshua’s name!
