Book of Romans 13:3 – For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,4 for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
Book of Americans 13:3 – “For Biden is not a terror to submission, but to disobedience. Are you afraid of the anti-Christ? Then do what he says, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for destruction. But if you disobey Biden, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries our God’s wrath on the wicked. 5Therefore you must rebel, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.”
I met with a fine Christian brother recently, a Pastor, and we had a powerful conversation regarding who is “Israel”, and who is expected to obey the commands of Yahuah.
He does not believe that non-Jews are called to obey the commands of Yahuah, stating that all of those laws are “for the Jews”. That Israel is “Jew only” might be more accurate.
If he is correct in that non-Jews are free from the Law, then for us, sin is impossible. Yippee! It is impossible to sin without the Law, because sin is transgression of the law (1 John3:4). And if a gentile cannot sin because gentiles are not required to obey Yahuah, then we can fornicate all we want, right, Pastor? And homosexualism, even in the Pastorate, is OK-fine, right? Because if gentiles are free from obedience to the commands of Yahuah, we don’t even need salvation, since “sin” will apply only to the Jews, Pastor.
This is a good video presentation on the obedience to the commands of Yahuah. The one glaring omission is defining “sin” for people, which in 1 John 3:4 is stated “sin is transgression (violation) of the law.”
How To Study The Instructions Of Yahuah – It Is Only Difficult When We Personally Make It Difficult
When one is new to Torah observance, one can find oneself at a loss regarding “Where to start”. Its funny that Yahuah left us His “Instructions” or “Words” (mistransliterated as “Law”), without a “Start Here” button to click.
So one will ask friends, search the interweb, read various sections of Torah and generally attempt to piece together a process of study. One thing for sure you will learn, as did I, is this: Obedience is easy until we make it difficult ourselves. It is our selfish flesh that makes obedience difficult, every time.
Let’s begin a divine instruction study by starting at Deuteronomy (DaBarim, Hebrew for “The Words”), ch 12. While there are many commands of Yahuah, beginning in Genesis with “Let light come to be”, DaBarim 12 is the only place that I find which begins with:
These are the laws and rightrulings which you guard to do in the land which your Yahuah, Alahim of your fathers, is giving you to possess, all the Yomim (days) that you live on the soil.”
If you are obedient to the command in Numbers that states from the mouth of Yahuah that there is one law in the congregation of the Hebrews and the non-Hebrews, that we are all commanded to submit to the same set of instructions, then congratulations, for you have received the love for the Truth.
Getting The Words correct is not difficult, although there is a lot to discover. Change will occur as we learn from the Ruach HaKodesh (translated as ‘Holy Spirit’ in most bibles), who is the only true teacher of The Words.
“The Words” are the first words of Dabarim (aka Deuteronomy but Dabarim means “The Words”).
Deu 1:1 These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel beyond the Jordan; in the wilderness, in the Arabah, opposite to Suph, between Paran and Tophel, and Laban and Hazeroth, and Dizahab;
Deu 1:2 eleven days from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.
Deu 1:3 And it happened, in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month on the first of the month, Moses spoke to the sons of Israel according to all that Jehovah had commanded him concerning them;
I must confess that I copied this article on the Tzitzit from http://www.setapartpeople.com/tzit-tzit-a-reminder-throughout-our-generations . Its a good article that includes more details than I personally would bother with, but it does include the correct references to Abraham and his descendants.
We are so close to being taken away by Yahuah. There is a plan and He is the planner. Last night, as I realized how fantastically close we are to leaving this earth, my heart rate picked up and my breathing increased. I could feel the leaving in my soul. I continue to see my right hand reaching for the gate. The handle is just out of reach, but there it remains. So close and so soon.
