They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:29) [ Part 1A ]

by Sandy Bruce on Friday, July 29, 2011 at 2:21am

They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:29)

[ Part 1A ] ( 4 pages in Word – 16 to 20 minutes to read )

In Luke 16:19-31, we have the account of an UnNamed rich man, Eleazar (“Lazarus”) and Abraham. For the purposes of this Teaching, we are only going to look at a few verses at the end of this passage.

27 “Then he { the UnNamed rich man } said, ‘I beg you therefore, father { Abraham }, that you would send him { Eleazar } to my father’s house,

28 for I have five brothers, THAT HE MAY TESTIFY TO THEM, lest they also come to this place of torment.’

29 Abraham said to him, ‘They { the five brothers } have Moses and the Prophets; let them HEAR them { Moses and the Prophets }.’

30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.

31 “But he { Abraham } said to him, ‘If they do NOT HEAR { this is from the Hebrew word: Shema שְׁמַע , which means to LISTEN with the INTENT of the heart TO OBEY } Moses and the Prophets, NEITHER will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead { referring to the resurrection of Messiah }.”

The first and main point is that if UNBELIEVERS do not believe what Moses and the Prophets said, neither will they believe what Yeshua the Messiah said, even though He has risen from the dead.

BUT, there is another significant point about this passage that is often not seen: Since most in CHURCHIANITY, ALSO, do NOT actually believe Moses and the Prophets, who said that we are required to OBEY our Creator’s commandments, then these people in churchianity will ALSO, NOT HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY } the words of Messiah Yeshua, even though He has risen from the dead. Let’s pause for a moment, re-read this statement and think about it…

This is true, isn’t it? Most “messianic newbies”, also did NOT HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY } the words of Moses and the Hebrew Prophets, prior to their praying and asking ELohim אֱלֹהִים to reveal to them the Truth. Many, if not most of these, which includes many of those reading this Teaching now, at one time in the past, also did NOT want to even LISTEN to anyone who tried to tell them about Moses (and the Prophets), such as keeping our Creator’s set apart seventh day Shabbat, His Appointed Times (“feasts”), dietary instructions and so on.

In other words, even these “messianic newbies”, in times past, thought { and many probably honestly believed } that they BELIEVED in the words of Messiah Yeshua. But the fact is, according to Abraham, who the Scriptures say was a prophet (see Gen 20:7), those who do NOT HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY } the words of Moses and the Hebrew Prophets, do NOT HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY } the words of Messiah Yeshua. It is just that simple. This is one critical reason why the vast multitudes who are in churchianity, are being deceived and being led astray from the Truth. They simply do NOT authentically BELIEVE Moses and the Prophets, despite what they think, feel or say, and despite what they have been taught for many, many years.

In other words, the vast multitudes in CHURCHIANITY wrongly, incorrectly and falsely believe, that the Torah תּוֹרָה (INSTRUCTIONS from our Creator) was allegedly done away with or allegedly nailed to the cross. But this is FALSEHOOD. The Scriptures simply do not teach this. So why then do they believe such LIES?

The answer is simple and clear, as Abraham our father told the UnNamed rich man who had died and was in torment:

Because these in churchianity ALSO, do NOT authentically believe Moses and the Prophets! If they did BELIEVE, according to the Hebrew meaning and definition of “To Believe”, they would OBEY the commandments of Torah. Instead, they either ADD to, or SUBTRACT from, the words of Moses, or else make up made-man rules, regulations and ordinances which are followed and obeyed, INSTEAD of or as SUBSTITUTION for, the commandments of our Creator.

In a similar way, those in Judaism, in its various man-made / rabbinical forms, also do not authentically believe in Moses and the Prophets. They too, either ADD to, or SUBTRACT from, the words of Moses; or make up made-man rules, regulations and ordinances, which are kept, INSTEAD of, or as SUBSTITUTION for, the commandments of our Creator.

“You shall NOT ADD to the word which I am commanding you, nor TAKE AWAY from it, that you may keep the commandments of YHWH יְהוָה your ELohim אֱלֹהִים which I command you.” (Deut 4:2)

“Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall NOT ADD to nor TAKE AWAY from it.” (Deut 12:32)

ADDING to or SUBTRACTING from the commandments of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים always brings a curse, which is SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS. So those who do such things, can NOT see the Truth. Only when they turn to YHWH יְהוָה is that spiritual blindness removed. “Nevertheless when one turns to YHWH יְהוָה , the veil is taken away.” (see 2 Cor 3:16)

6 Thus you have made the commandment of ELohim אֱלֹהִים of no effect by your TRADITION

7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME.

9 And IN VAIN they worship Me, teaching as doctrines, the commandments of men.’ ” (Matt 15:6-9, referencing Isa 29:13-14)

These verses apply equally to all who are in false religions and false man-made religious systems.

Thus, those in rabbinical Judaism and man-made constantine churchianity (or other false religious systems), who REJECT the words of Moses and the Hebrew Prophets, to repent of their sins and OBEY the commandments of our Creator YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , as He gave them (without ADDING to or SUBTRACTING from them) are likewise, going to REJECT the words of Messiah Yeshua, to repent of their sins and OBEY the commandments of our Creator.

From the beginning, from the Creation, our Creator, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , commanded us to OBEY His INSTRUCTIONS ( Torah תּוֹרָה ), which in most bible translations, is wrongly, incorrectly and falsely translated as “law”. These INSTRUCTIONS are given in the form of commandments ( mitz-voh-tav מִצְו‍ֹתָו ), statutes ( chu-keem חֻקִּים ) and judgments ( mish-pah-teem מִּשְׁפָּטִים ).

Our Creator gave INSTRUCTIONS to Adam (who represents All Adam – All mankind), teaching him how to live righteously and walk properly with both ELohim אֱלֹהִים and his neighbors. But he sinned and disobeyed, as every one of us has. From Adam until Moses, the knowledge and revelation about ELohim אֱלֹהִים was increasingly progressive. From Adam until Moses, more commandments were given, with the entire set of 613 were given to the redeemed people of ELohim אֱלֹהִים , who are called ISsrael, at Mount Sinai. From the beginning, those who WALKED with ELohim אֱלֹהִים are they who OBEYED and are called righteous. Those who did not obey are called the wicked and they perished. So we have always been required to OBEY the INSTRUCTIONS of our Creator, since the beginning.

Noah was a preacher of righteousness, calling for the people in his generations to REPENT. (2 Pet 2:5) How many repented during the 120 years that it took him to build that ark? How many? Moses and the Hebrew Prophets likewise wrote and taught this. Repeatedly they called for the people to REPENT.

Sadly, since the beginning, there has always been, just a REMNANT, just a very small number, in each generation, from Adam to Noah, to Abraham, to Moses, to the Hebrew Prophets, to Messiah Yeshua, all the way until today, who have actually AUTHENTICALLY BELIEVED in the Truth of what our Creator said, through Moses and the Prophets.

Those who BELIEVED are they who HEARD { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY }, because they were the only ones who: REPENTED of their sins ( turned AWAY from their ways ) and WALKED in OBEDIENCE to the INSTRUCTIONS of Torah תּוֹרָה ( turned TO the ways of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים ).

Whether it has been rabbinical Judaism or man-made constantine churchianity, the vast multitudes have created their own false religious systems, which ADD to or SUBTRACT from, the words of Moses; or make various made-man rules, regulations and ordinances which are done INSTEAD of or as SUBSTITUTION for, the commandments of our Creator.

So, most in churchianity, essentially, throw out Moses and the Prophets. While they will not say this or admit to this, the practice of their lives and life-styles, clearly shows this to be so. In fact, the vast multitudes in churchianity do not even want to HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע } about Moses and the Prophets. So many are simply unWilling.

Instead, as Moses and the Hebrew Prophets foretold, and as Messiah Yeshua and the Hebrew apostles also foretold, they want to hear and believe anything BUT Moses and the Prophets. Few nowadays want to hear that they need to repent of their sins. Their hearts have become so (spiritually) hard and their ears have become so (spiritually) dull.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers { who tell them what they want to hear }; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2 Tim 4:3-4)

Such falsely believe that the INSTRUCTIONS of Torah תּוֹרָה are actually no longer valid. They falsely believe that we supposedly do NOT have to obey our Creator any more.

They falsely believe that we are free to sin and “grace” allegedly covers our every sin, even willful and deliberate ones. Yet the Scriptures teach that grace is given to those who have sinned AND authentically REPENT; to repent means and requires that we start or resume WALKING with our Creator — in OBEDIENCE to His commandments. If we do not OBEY, we have NOT repented. Saying “I repent” is NOT repentance. Repentance ( Teshuvah תשובה ) means: to turn around. If we are still going our own ways and not going the ways of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , then WHERE is the repentance? There is a judgment coming. There is a wrath of ELohim אֱלֹהִים coming. “Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance…” (Matt 3:8)

“Then YHWH יְהוָה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.“ (Gen 6:5) Wickedness in the heart of a person includes knowingly refusing to WALK in OBEDIENCE to the commandments of our Creator. This is called REBELLION.

“For REBELLION is like the sin of WITCHCRAFT, and STUBBORNNESS is LIKE INIQUITY and IDOLATRY. Because you have REJECTED the word of YHWH יְהוָה, He also has rejected you … ( from being king ).” (1 Sam 15:23)

Those who know the Truth and yet still, adamantly and stubbornly, REJECT the commandments of our Creator and REFUSE obey, who REFUSE to bend their knees and surrender their hearts – in submission to His authority over their lives, are walking in REBELLION and committing a form of SPIRITUAL IDOLATRY. YHWH יְהוָה is going to reject them on the last day.

The multitudes are also taught wrongly, incorrectly and falsely, that grace has only been around since Messiah Yeshua. This is false. Here is the truth: “But Noah found GRACE ( chayn חֵן ) in the eyes of YHWH יְהוָה . This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah WALKED with ELohim אֱלֹהִים . (Gen 6:8-9)

What does it mean when the Scripture says that Noah WALKED with ELohim אֱלֹהִים ? It means that he OBEYED the commandments that he was given and taught. This is the reason he found GRACE ( chayn חֵן ). What happened to all those in Noah’s generations, who REJECTED the words of YHWH יְהוָה to repent and obey the commandments, which he preached for 120 years? They perished. Besides Noah, his three sons and their four wives (8), how many repented???

Grace is only given to those who repent, not to those who refuse to repent. “He who covers his sins will NOT prosper, BUT whoever CONFESSES and FORSAKES them { turns AWAY from their sins } — will have MERCY.” (Prov 28:13) The patience and long-suffering of ELohim אֱלֹהִים is not really grace, but His delay in bringing judgment on the unrepentant soul, including those in churchianity. “Master YHWH יְהוָה is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Pet 3:9)

Many, if not most, in churchianity today, also falsely believe in all sorts of heresies, such as “dispensationalism”. This falsehood is likewise from the spirit of the Serpent in the Garden. It teaches that ELohim אֱלֹהִים allegedly works differently in different “dispensations” (ie: time periods), which such false pastors and teachers have arbitrarily made up to support such falsehood. Yet this is nowhere to be found in the Scriptures.

In fact, the Scriptures teach repeatedly that our Creator YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים does NOT change. If His love, goodness, kindness, mercy, patience, long-suffering, etc., do NOT change, they why would His justice and righteousness, concerning His requirement that we OBEY His INSTRUCTIONS, change?

“For I YHWH יְהוָה do not change.” (Mal 3:6)

“Yeshua יֵשׁוּעַ the Messiah ( Mashiach מָשִׁיחַ ) – the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Heb 13:8)

Grace is NOT given to the UnRepenant sinner who does not turn ( REPENT ) FROM his/her ways and turn TO the ways of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים . The UnRepenant soul receives the wages of his/her sins, which is JUDGMENT. This happens both here and hereafter.

“For the wages of sin { disobedience, rebellion, idolatry, etc. } is { SPIRITUAL } death, but the gift of ELohim אֱלֹהִים { to those who REPENT and OBEY Him } is eternal { SPIRITUAL } life in Messiah Yeshua our Master.” (Rom 6:23)

Many, if not most, in churchianity, willingly believe a multitude of false teachings and doctrines which they are fed, week after week, without reading the Scriptures for themselves. The simply accept what is said from pulpits or shown on the “big screen”, instead of READING the Scriptures for themselves and PRAYING that the Set Apart (“Holy”) Spirit will show and reveal Truth to them.

Many, if not most, do not SEARCH like the Bereans, to see if the things they are being taught are true or even in the Scriptures.

“These { in Berea } were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and SEARCHED the Scriptures DAILY to find out whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:11)

Many, if not most, do not STUDY to shows themselves approved.

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to ELohim אֱלֹהִים , a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth { the Scriptures }.” (2 Tim 2:15)

This is NOT a suggestion: “SEARCH the Scriptures DAILY”. This is a command from our Creator.

This also is NOT a suggestion: “Be diligent to present yourself approved to ELohim אֱלֹהִים “.This is a command.

Thus, in failing to do what Acts 17:11 and 2 Tim 2:15 teach, the multitudes are already walking in sin, disobedience and rebellion. Is it any wonder they have little to no understanding, knowledge or discernment of the Truth?

So blindly, like sheep being led to the slaughter, they believe the multitude of falsehoods, lies, deceptions, heresies, doctrines of demons and false teachings, and thus also practice all kinds of false, babylonian, pagan worship (together with the customs, rituals, symbols and dates thereof) and offer up “strange fire” (see Lev chapter 10) as so-called “ministry” and “service” to YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים .

Likewise, they reject the divinely-inspired and written words of Moses and the Prophets, yet gladly accept the demonically-induced and deceptive words of pagans, such as Marcion (2nd century) and Constantine (4th century).

——-

Moses told us that YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים would raise up a PROPHET like MOSES and that this PROPHET would again TEACH and EXPLAIN the Torah תּוֹרָה to the redeemed people of ELohim אֱלֹהִים . In fact, this PROPHET would speak the very WORDS of our Creator YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , just as Moses did!

15 “YHWH יְהוָה your ELohim אֱלֹהִים will raise up for you a PROPHET like me, from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY; tih-shema-oon תִּשְׁמָעוּן },

16 according to all you desired of YHWH יְהוָה your ELohim אֱלֹהִים in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of YHWH יְהוָה my ELohim אֱלֹהִים , nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’

17 “And YHWH יְהוָה said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good.

18 I will raise up for them a PROPHET LIKE YOU, from among their brethren, and WILL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH, and He shall speak to them, all that I command Him.

19 And it shall be that whoever will “NOT HEAR” ( NOT OBEY loh-yish-mah לֹא-יִשְׁמַע ) My words ( el – di-vah-rie אֶל-דְּבָרַי ), which He speaks in My name, I WILL REQUIRE IT of him. (Deut 18:15-19)

According to Moses, therefore, we are required to OBEY THIS PROPHET. Therefore, THIS PROPHET will only speak and teach Torah תּוֹרָה, just as Moses spoke the words of Torah תּוֹרָה. The Torah itself teaches us that whoever speaks and teaches contrary to the Torah תּוֹרָה is a false teacher and a false prophet. And there are many of these today.

Moreover, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים told us, that He will put HIS WORDS into the mouth of THIS PROPHET and command THIS PROPHET to speak His words to the people. THIS PROPHET CANNOT speak what HE wants, but ONLY the words which YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים puts in his mouth to speak. (By the way, this is one way to discern a true prophet from a false one. A false prophet speaks of his own initiative, and his own words, instead of speaking because YHWH יְהוָה put His words into the mouth of that person and then commanded that person to speak them.)

They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:29) [ Part 1B ]

by Sandy Bruce on Friday, July 29, 2011 at 2:26am

They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:29)

[ Part 1B ] ( 3-1/2 pages in Word – 15 to 18 minutes to read )

If you have not already read Part 1A, please do that now: 

Part 1Ahttp://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150248559280168

About 1,500 years after Moses, Messiah Yeshua was here. He is that PROPHET like MOSES. In fact, in the first century, the people of ISrael were expecting THAT PROPEHT to arise. That’s why they asked Yochanan (John) if he were THAT PROPHET:

19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.”

21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”  He said, “I am not.”  “Are you THE PROPHET?” And he answered, “No.”

22 Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”

23 He said: “I am ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness:’ Make straight the way of YHWH יְהוָה, as the prophet Isaiah said.” (John 1:19-23, referencing Isa 40:1-3)

But John told them that THE PROPHET was indeed among them. And this is Yeshua the Messiah:

26 “… there stands One among you whom you do not know.

27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.” (John 1:26-27)

In the very beginning of His ministry, Messiah Yeshua then told us Himself, that He is indeed THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES. How did He do this?

‎”Do NOT think that I came to destroy the TORAH תּוֹרָה or the PROPHETS. I did NOT come to destroy, but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till HEAVEN and EARTH pass away, one jot { yod } or one tittle { crownlet } will by no means pass from the TORAH תּוֹרָה till all is fulfilled.” (Matt 5:17-18)

Is all yet fulfilled? No, of course not. Then the TORAH תּוֹרָה has not passed away. Therefore, whoever says or teaches that the TORAH תּוֹרָה has passed away or has been done away with, is essentially calling Messiah Yeshua a false prophet and a liar – and does NOT believe Him, nor believe in Him, NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY OR TEACH.

YHWH יְהוָה said that He would raise up a PROPHET LIKE MOSES. He said that He would put His words in the mouth of THAT PROPHET. He said that He will command THAT PROPEHT to speak His words. He said that the redeemed people of ELohim אֱלֹהִים { who are called ISrael } are required to HEAR { BELIEVE and OBEY – Shema שְׁמַע } those words which THAT PROPHET shall speak in the name { by the authority of } YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים .

Messiah Yeshua just said that the TORAH תּוֹרָה is NOT done away with; and shall NOT be done away with until ALL is fulfilled. Is all yet fulfilled? No. Therefore, whoever teaches or believes contrary to this, is making Messiah Yeshua, THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES, out to be a liar.

Did Yeshua say: The TORAH תּוֹרָה is until John? No. Did He say: The TORAH תּוֹרָה is until the cross? No. Did He say: The TORAH תּוֹרָה is until the resurrection, but then no more? No. Did He say: The TORAH תּוֹרָה is until I raise up yet another, who will be My messenger and speak for me and do away with all the words and commandments which I have commanded you to obey? No, of course not!!!

So where then, did that “inter-office memo”, that claims “Paul” changed everything, come from? Hmm?? How about from the spirit of the Serpent in the Garden! Whose voice are YOU listening to? By the way, Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul, taught TORAH תּוֹרָה. We will learn about this in the later Parts of this Teaching.

Now then, since Yeshua the Messiah – is THAT PROPHET, we are REQUIRED to OBEY the words which He spoke. The words which He spoke HAVE to be TORAH תּוֹרָה, because that is what Moses said and taught. He has to teach and explain all that Moses taught and explained. This is one of various reasons why He had to be raised up.

Yeshua the Messiah – THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES, commanded us, in the name { by the authority of } YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים, to OBEY all the INSTRUCTIONS of the TORAH תּוֹרָה, which YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים gave to His redeemed people ISrael. Therefore, if we do NOT OBEY Him, we are walking in sin, disobedience and rebellion to our Creator.

Further, whoever rejects the words which Yeshua the Messiah spoke, which we are commanded and required to obey, according to Moses (Deut 18:15-19) is rejecting the ONE who sent Him, who is YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים. And whoever REJECTS the words of YHWH יְהוָה, He also will reject …” (1 Sam 15:23)

“He who hears you, hears Me { Yeshua }, he who rejects you, rejects Me { Yeshua }, and he who rejects Me { Yeshua } rejects Him { YHWH יְהוָה } who sent Me { Yeshua }.” (Luke 10:16)

Do we understand what He is saying here? Those who reject and do not obey the words of Moses and the Prophets, do not understand and believe the words of Messiah. And thus they are rejecting the words of our Creator Himself.

Whoever rejects the words of Messiah Yeshua is really rejecting the words of our Creator, Who sent Him and put His words into the mouth of Yeshua to speak.

Consequently, those who REJECT the words of Moses, will also REJECT the words of Messiah, because Moses foretold that the Messiah – THE PROPHET, would come, and speak the words of our Creator, even as he did.

48 “He who rejects Me { Messiah Yeshua }, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

49 For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me, gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.” (John 12:48-49)

Here again, Yeshua declares to us that He is THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES, who came to speak the words (Torah תּוֹרָה ) of the Father to us.

Yeshua, the PROPHET LIKE MOSES, commanded us to OBEY. He did NOT do away with the commandments of our Creator. He could NOT do that! In fact, the Torah תּוֹרָה clearly teaches us that whoever teaches contrary to the Torah תּוֹרָה, even if he performs signs and wonders, would be a FALSE prophet!

The PROPHET LIKE MOSES has to teach and explain Torah תּוֹרָה, not do away with it. Therefore, all who teach that Messiah Yeshua allegedly did away with Torah תּוֹרָה are false teachers and false prophets.

On the contrary, Messiah RAISED the standard of righteousness in the Torah תּוֹרָה. He taught that it was not enough to simply keep and do the commandments, but that it is also necessary and important, to do them with the right motive and intent of the heart AND to do them with the enablement and help of the Set Apart (“Holy”) Spirit. And in fact, it is for these very reasons (among others) that the Spirit was given to us – to enable and empower us to OBEY.

“And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit, whom ELohim אֱלֹהִים has given — to those who OBEY Him.” (Acts 5:32)

The Spirit is given to those who — OBEY. Let’s pause again and think about this thought carefully.

Therefore, the words of Messiah Yeshua, are from the Father. Yeshua said:

“IF you LOVE Me, KEEP My commandments” (John 14:15)

“He who has My commandments and KEEPS them, it is he who LOVES Me.” (John 14:21)

“IF anyone LOVES Me, he will KEEP My word;” (John 14:23)

Yet, most still do NOT OBEY! Instead, they continue to believe the falsehood and lies of pastors and teachers, who speak contrary to what Yeshua, THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES, said and commanded us, in the name { by the authority of } YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים .

HOW can this be? HOW can people read the Scriptures and NOT believe, when Yeshua repeatedly and clearly, commanded us to OBEY?

“… that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by all that proceeds from the mouth of YHWH יְהוָה (Deut 8:3)

Since Yeshua spoke the words which proceeded from the mouth of YHWH יְהוָה , and we are commanded to live by all that proceeds from the mouth of YHWH יְהוָה … then WHY are most people NOT HEARING and OBEYING OBEY the INSTRUCTIONS of Torah תּוֹרָה ? Obviously, they do NOT really BELIEVE in Him, despite what they think, say or profess.

One reason is because MOST simply do NOT read the Scriptures, as we have said earlier.

But another reason, and probably the most important one of all, is based on what Abraham, a prophet, said to that UnNamed rich man who had died:

29 Abraham said to him, ‘They { in this case: those in churchianity } have Moses and the Prophets; let them HEAR { BELIEVE and OBEY – Shema שְׁמַע } them { Moses and the Prophets }.”

30 “And he { the UnNamed rich man } said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them { ie: those in churchianity } from the dead, they will repent.”

31 “But he { Abraham } said to him, ‘If they { ie: those in churchianity } do NOT HEAR { BELIEVE and OBEY – Shema שְׁמַע } Moses and the Prophets { who taught us to OBEY the commandments of our Creator }, NEITHER will they be persuaded though one { the Messiah Yeshua } rises from the dead { who, as the Prophet Like Moses, also taught and commanded us to OBEY the commandments of our Creator }.’ ” (Luke 16:29-31)

——-

1.) Moses and the Hebrew Prophets told us to OBEY the commandments of our Creator. Most do NOT BELIEVE their words and therefore do NOT OBEY. ( in Hebrew: to BELIEVE means to OBEY). Accordingly, they do NOT authentically BELIEVE in our Creator YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים or in Messiah Yeshua, despite what they think or say.

2.) The Prophet Like Moses, Messiah Yeshua, likewise, told us to OBEY. Yet most still, do NOT BELIEVE His words either and therefore do NOT OBEY. And why NOT? It is because Abraham our father, said, even though Yeshua has indeed risen from the dead, they STILL, do NOT BELIEVE even His words! IF they BELIEVED His words, which came from the mouth of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , they would OBEY. But they do NOT BELIEVE His words, because they do NOT BELIEVE the words of Moses and the Prophets, who wrote of Him! Abraham the prophet of ELohim אֱלֹהִים said so.

And this is what Yeshua, THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES also said:

46 “For if you BELIEVED { OBEYED } Moses, you would BELIEVE { OBEY } Me; for he wrote about Me.

47 But if you do not BELIEVE { OBEY } his WRITINGS { Torah תּוֹרָה }, how will you BELIEVE { OBEY } My WORDS?” (John 5:46-47)

The answer is: they will NOT.

In fact, those who do NOT OBEY the commandments of our Creator, yet call themselves “believers” in Messiah, are calling YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים a liar, because they wrongly, incorrectly and falsely make Yeshua out to be a liar. Yeshua said: “…till HEAVEN and EARTH pass away, one jot { yod } or one tittle { crownlet } will by no means pass from the TORAH תּוֹרָה till all is fulfilled.” If heaven and earth are still here, then so is TORAH תּוֹרָה.

“Oh, but that all changed after the cross they retort!” Really? WHO said so? Show where in the Scriptures it allegedly says that. It doesn’t. But there is one who does suggest that. And that one whispers: “Has ELohim אֱלֹהִים said…” (see Gen 3:1), “that you still have to obey the commandments now…?” WHOSE voice are YOU listening to? Are heaven and earth still here, even after the death, burial and resurrection of Messiah? Then TORAH תּוֹרָה is also still here.

WHO then is the liar?

“He who says, ‘I know Him { Messiah Yeshua },’ and does NOT keep His commandments, is a LIAR, and the TRUTH is NOT in him.” (1 John 2:4)

The evil one, satan, deceives the multitudes, like those in churchianity, telling them that they allegedly do not have to keep the commandments of our Creator anymore. But he is a liar – from the beginning. (Gen 3:1 , John 8:44) How then can anyone claim to believe in Messiah, yet listen to and obey the voice of the serpent instead?

——-

Therefore, when we share the Truth in Love (Eph 4:15), and people do not immediately understand, believe or receive it, it is not us who they are rejecting. Most have been taught wrongly, incorrectly and falsely, for years and years, from generation to generation. But some, do know the Truth, yet still knowingly refuse to repent and obey. They are NOT believing in YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים and NOT serving Him. Such are following and obeying another, deceived and deceiving still others. (2 Tim 3:13)

When people reject the Truth, they are rejecting the one who has sent us, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים to share with them. We are His messengers, His servants, of the ReNewed Covenant. “We are ambassadors for Messiah, as though ELohim אֱלֹהִים were pleading through us: we implore you on behalf of Messiah, be reconciled to ELohim אֱלֹהִים .”

(2 Cor 5:20)

Therefore, it is written: “No one can come to Me { Messiah } unless the Father who sent Me draws him { by the Holy Spirit }.“ (John 6:44) Thus, we have to be praying, both before and after we share with people. A simple prayer could be: “Father, draw ___ to Messiah Yeshua and the Truth, by your Spirit. Show them Moses and the Prophets. Show them that you require us to OBEY Your commandments.” We can also suggest to them after sharing with them, that they pray this simple prayer: ELohim אֱלֹהִים , show me the Truth.

“ELohim אֱלֹהִים our Redeemer, …desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Tim 2:4)

Pray for your friends, families, co-workers, former / present pastor, church friends … and then look for an opportunity to share. TIME is short, VERY short.

——-

Now let’s go back to the beginning, to the text we are using in this Teaching. The UnNamed rich man begged Abraham, to send Eleazar to his father’s house, to warn his five brothers, so that at least they could repent and not also go to the place of { eternal } torment.

27 “Then he { the UnNamed rich man } said, ‘I beg you therefore, father { Abraham }, that you would send him { Eleazar } to my father’s house,

28 for I have five brothers, THAT HE MAY TESTIFY TO THEM, lest they also come to this place of torment.”

The UnNamed rich man wanted someone to TESTIFY to his brothers about the judgment to come on unrepentant souls. And what does Abraham say in response? “They { the five brothers } have Moses and the Prophets; let them HEAR them { Moses and the Prophets }.” (verse 29).

The Torah itself teaches us that there must be Two Witnesses to establish something. ““One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of TWO or THREE WITNESSES the matter shall be established.” (Deut 19:15) So here, Abraham is saying, that Moses { the Torah } and the Prophets, are those Two Witnesses, which are TESTIFYING about YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים, about Messiah Yeshua, and about the Judgment to come. If someone will NOT HEAR { Shema שְׁמַע BELIEVE and OBEY } the words of these Two Witnesses (Moses and the Prophets ), they will NOT HEAR { BELIEVE and OBEY } the testimony of Messiah Yeshua; for Moses and the Prophets TESTIFY of Yeshua!

We had Two Witnesses in the days of Noah. Noah, the preacher of righteousness, is preaching repentance to his generations. Methuselah (his grand-father) and Lamech (his father) are the Two Witnesses of the message: “Repent or perish.”

We have Two Witnesses through Moses { the Torah } and the Prophets.

There will be Two Witnesses at the very end, for the last time: “And I will give power to my Two Witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” (Rev 3:11) What will they preach? “Repent or perish.”

They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:19-29, Eph 2:19-21) [ Part 2 ]

by Sandy Bruce on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 1:02pm

They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:19-29, Eph 2:19-21)

If you have not already read Parts 1A and 1B, please do that now:

Part 1A – http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150248559280168

Part 1B – http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150248561145168

[ Part 2 ] ( 4 pages in Word – 16 to 20 minutes to read )

19 Now, therefore, you { non-Hebrews / non-Israelites, wild branches } are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens { NOT replacing ISrael } WITH the Set Apart Ones { the natural believing branches of ISrael } and members of the household of ELohim אֱלֹהִים

20 having been built on the foundation of the { Hebrew } APOSTLES and { Hebrew } PROPHETS, Yeshua the Messiah Himself being the chief cornerstone { of that foundation, see Psa 118:22 },

21  in whom the whole building { spiritual temple of living stones, see 1 Pet 2:4-6 }, being fitted together, grows into a Set Apart temple in YHWH יְהוָה,” (Eph 2:19-21)

What PROPHETS are Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul talking about here?

Answer: the Hebrew Prophets of course!

So according to Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul, the Hebrew Prophets are considered a foundation of the Set Apart living temple of YHWH יְהוָה. And since they are before the { Hebrew } APOSTLES in time, they are the first and primary foundation of the living temple of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים.

The Hebrew Prophets taught Torah and called the people of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים back to obedience to the commandments of Torah in authentic repentance.

Moreover, when Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul, speaks of the Hebrew Prophets, he also includes Moses himself, who is one of them, and the greatest of them all; and the one to whom all of the Hebrew Prophets referred the people back to, in every generation. Therefore, in this context, we can say: the Hebrew Prophets = Moses and the Prophets.

And this is what Abraham, who the Scriptures also say was a prophet (Gen 20:7, see Parts 1A and 1B of this Teaching), said: They have Moses and the Prophets. So the Scriptures here in Ephesians chapter 2 agree with what Abraham, our father, said elsewhere:

“They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them. (Luke 16:29)”

——-

Next, the foundation is built on –

1.) the { Hebrew } PROPHETS,

2.) and then: the { Hebrew  } APOSTLES

3.) with: Yeshua the Messiah as the CORNERSTONE between them and CONNECTING them.

The CORNERSTONE of a building, sometimes called the FOUNDATION STONE, is the first stone set in its place. It determines the exact location and position of the building. All other stones are then set in place in accordance with the cornerstone. Thus, Yeshua is the CORNERSTONE of the living temple of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים. The foundation is then built on Him, consisting of the { Hebrew } PROPHETS and then the { Hebrew  } APOSTLES. What an analogy our Heavenly Father uses here through Rav Shaul. What a picture He is drawing for us to see His eternal spiritual Truths.

Thus there are THREE testifying her: Yeshua + Two Witnesses ( the Hebrew Prophets and the Hebrew Apostles ) And this is exactly what Torah teaches us: we need to have Two Witnesses to establish something.

“One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of TWO or THREE WITNESSES the matter shall be established.” (Deut 19:15)

Therefore, Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul is clearly saying here that the TRUE Living Temple of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים is built on the foundation of the { Hebrew } PROPHETS, which includes Moses ( that is, the Torah תוֹרה – which does not mean “law”, but rather, INSTRUCTIONS for walking and living righteously with our Creator. ). So clearly, the Torah תוֹרה was NOT done away with and NOT nailed to the cross, as is taught wrongly, incorrectly and falsely. Otherwise, there is no foundation.

Consequently, if people do away with the { Hebrew } PROPHETS, which includes Moses ( that is, the Torah תוֹרה ), then they have NO FOUNDATION and their house { life, spiritual life } collapses.

“Unless YHWH יְהוָה builds the house, they labor in vain who build it;” (Psa 127:1)

We just learned that YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים is building His spiritual temple, out of living stones, where Yeshua the Messiah is the CORNERSTONE and the { Hebrew } PROPHETS and the { Hebrew } APOSTLES are the FOUNDATION. Therefore, those who are building their lives and their families or their ministries, congregations and fellowships WITHOUT [ Moses ] and the { Hebrew } PROPHETS have no foundation or a wrong foundation. Sooner or later, everything they are building WILL collapse.

So then, for those who REJECT Moses and the Hebrew Prophets – what are they building their spiritual lives on? According to Yeshua, they are building on SAND.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does NOT do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand,

27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” (Matt 7:26-27)

What words did Yeshua speak? The words of Moses and the Hebrew Prophets. And Yeshua came as the Prophet Like Moses (Deut 18:15-19), teaching us TORAH תוֹרה.

Yeshua the Messiah, taught us Moses and the Hebrew Prophets and raised the standard of righteousness to a HIGHER level. He did NOT do away with the requirement that we OBEY the commandments of our Creator. Thus, in His teachings, Yeshua explained and declared that the FOUNDATION  is Moses and the Hebrew Prophets; establishing that the Torah תוֹרה was NOT done away with and NOT nailed to the cross, as is taught wrongly, incorrectly and falsely.

Now let’s read a well-known verse with this new light we have:

‎”Do NOT think that I came to destroy the { FOUNDATION of the } TORAH תוֹרה { of Moses } or the PROPHETS ( Nih-vee-eem נְבִיאִים ). I did NOT come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till HEAVEN and EARTH pass away, one jot { yod } or one tittle { crownlet } will by no means pass from the TORAH תוֹרה { and the Prophets; which is understood in Hebrew thought to be included again here } till all is fulfilled.” (Matt 5:17-18)

Is the SUN still up in the sky?

Answer: Yes. Then Heaven has NOT passed away and neither has the TORAH תוֹרה.

Are the MOON and the STARS still up in the sky?

Answer: Yes. Then Heaven has NOT passed away and neither has the TORAH תוֹרה.

Is the GROUND in your front yard actually still there?

Answer: Yes. Then Heaven has NOT passed away and neither has the TORAH תוֹרה.

Again, notice that we have TWO or THREE WITNESSES, according to Deut 19:15, this time by Yeshua the Messiah Himself, establishing the fact that the TORAH תוֹרה has not been done away with or nailed to the cross.

Finally, has ALL been fulfilled yet?

Answer: Of course not! There are many things, events and prophecies which are yet to take place even in our days. Thus, the TORAH תוֹרה has NOT been done away with or nailed to the cross.

And Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul NEVER says or teaches that either. On the contrary, as we read here in Ephesians chapter 2, Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul establishes and confirms that Moses and the Prophets are still valid, since they are the very FOUNDATION of the living temple of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים !

——-

Next, what words did the { Hebrew  } APOSTLES speak? The words of Moses and the Prophets. This is exactly what Rav Shaul / Apostle Paul is teaching here. Does he contract himself elsewhere then? Answer: No, of course not.

So all of the Hebrew servants of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים are in agreement:

1.)   The { Hebrew } PROPHETS taught Moses.

2.)   Yeshua the Messiah, the CORNERSTONE, taught Moses

3.)   The { Hebrew } APOSTLES taught Moses.

——-

And we also have a very interesting mystery in the Hebrew words here.

Prophets ( Nih-vee-eem נְבִיאִים ), consisting of the Hebrew letters:

Nun ( נ ) – Bet/Vet ( ב ) – Yod ( י ) – Alef ( א ) – Yod ( י ) – Mem final/soffit ( ם )

Yeshua ( Yeshua יֵשׁוּעַ ), consisting of the Hebrew letters:

Yod ( י ) – Shin ( שׁ ) – Vav ( וּ ) – Aiyin ( ע )

Apostles ( shlee-cheem שְּׁלִיחִים  ), consisting of the Hebrew letters:

Shin ( שׁ ) – Lamed ( ל ) – Yod ( י ) – Chet ( ח ) – Yod ( י ) – Mem final/soffit ( ם )

When we take the FIRST letter of each of these THREE Hebrew words, we have:

Shin ( שׁ ) from Apostles ( shlee-cheem שְּׁלִיחִים  )

Nun ( נ ) from Prophets ( Nih-vee-eem נְבִיאִים )

Yod ( י ) from Yeshua ( Yeshua יֵשׁוּעַ )

These three letters: Shin ( שׁ ) + Nun ( נ ) + Yod ( י )

form the Hebrew word “SCARLET” ( shah-nee שָׁנִי ). Co-incidence? We do not think so.

The theme of the “SCARLET THREAD”, from Genesis to Revelation, is one the most important spiritual truths of ALL of the Scriptures, and the FOUNDATION on which our ATONEMENT and REDEMPTION is based on. The “SCARLET THREAD” represents the shed-blood of Messiah Yeshua, of whom the { Hebrew } PROPHETS testified and prophecied, and of whom the { Hebrew } APOSTLES preached. Co-incidental? We don’t think so.

So again, we see that all of the Hebrew servants of YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים are in agreement:

1.)   The { Hebrew } PROPHETS prophecied the message of the SCARLET thread

2.)   Yeshua the Messiah, the CORNERSTONE, is the one of whom the SCARLET THREAD speaks

3.)   The { Hebrew } APOSTLES preached the message of the SCARLET thread

——-

But there is yet another interesting mystery hidden here in the Hebrew words and letters.

These three letters: Shin ( שׁ ) { 300 } + Nun ( נ ) { 50 } + Yod ( י ) { 10 }, which form the word “SCARLET” ( shah-nee שָׁנִי ), have a Gematria ( numerical value ) of: 300 + 50 +10 = 360. [ see Note at the end about Gematria. ]

In the Biblical Hebrew calendar, there are also 360 days. Another co-incidence? Again, we don’t think so. So does this teach us anything? Yes, of course.

Every day of our lives, is to revolve around the Biblical Hebrew calendar of our Creator, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים in accordance with Shabbats and His Appointed Times (see Lev 23). Additionally, every day of our lives, is to be BUILT upon the only true and correct FOUNDATION, which is:

1.)   The { Hebrew } PROPHETS [ which include Moses himself ] taught TORAH תוֹרה.

2.)   Yeshua the Messiah, the CORNERSTONE, taught TORAH תוֹרה.

3.)   The { Hebrew } APOSTLES taught TORAH תוֹרה.

——-

Conclusion: If OUR spiritual life is NOT being built on Moses and the Prophets ( TORAH תוֹרה ), then it is being built on SAND — quicksand. And that house is going to crash and be destroyed, sooner or later, or at the very end — and great shall be its fall.

Messiah Yeshua did NOT die to set people free FROM OBEDIENCE to the commandments of our Creator. He died to set us free from the eternal penalty of our DISOBEDIENCE and REBELLION to those very commandments. We have always been required to OBEY.

Messiah Yeshua then gave us His Spirit ( to those who authentically have repented ), so that we now have the power, His power, living inside of us, in our hearts, to OBEY the commandments. If we are NOT learning and OBEYING the commandments, we are (still) walking in sin, disobedience and rebellion. If we do NOT even WANT to obey, we have to ask ourselves if we are truly circumcised in the heart. A circumcised heart, a new heart, a renewed heart, is one that WANTS to learn and obey the commandments of his/her Creator.

Warning:

26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.

28 Anyone who has rejected the “LAW” ( Torah תוֹרה ) of Moses { the commandments of our Creator } dies without mercy on the testimony of TWO or THREE WITNESSES.

29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of ELohim אֱלֹהִים underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit ( Ruach רוּחַ ) of grace?

30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, ‘says YHWH יְהוָה.’ And again, YHWH יְהוָה will judge His people.” (Heb 10:26-30)

Therefore, those who teach that the commandments of the TORAH תוֹרה were allegedly done away with or nailed to the cross, are teaching wrongly, incorrectly and falsely. Their lives and their ministries are being built on SAND. Everything they are building, WILL collapse, sooner or later. And they will stand before their Creator, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , on J-Day, WITHOUT the sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah.

Likewise, those who follow and listen to such false pastors and false teachers, are also building their lives on SAND. Everything they are building, WILL collapse, sooner or later. And they too, will stand before their Creator, YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים , on J-Day, WITHOUT the sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah.

We need to take these words of Scripture here very, very seriously. “Anyone who has rejected the “LAW” ( Torah תוֹרה ) of Moses { the commandments of our Creator } DIES, WITHOUT MERCY, on the testimony of TWO or THREE WITNESSES.

We have our TWO or THREE WITNESSES:

1.)   The { Hebrew } PROPHETS [ which include Moses himself ] taught TORAH תוֹרה.

2.)   Yeshua the Messiah, the CORNERSTONE, who taught TORAH תוֹרה.

3.)   The { Hebrew } APOSTLES who taught TORAH תוֹרה.

In the same way, but ETERNALLY, anyone who has rejected the “LAW” ( Torah תוֹרה ) of Moses { the commandments of our Creator } DIES { SPIRITUALLY }, WITHOUT MERCY, on the testimony of TWO or THREE WITNESSES.

Therefore, we need to REPENT and start LEARNING and OBEYING the commandments of our Creator Redeemer. Those who do NOT start OBEYING the commandments of our Creator, have NOT authentically repented, despite what they think and believe. And therefore, there no longer remains a sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua for their sins. Biblical REPENTANCE ( Teshuvah תשובה ), both means and requires, that we stop going our ways and stop doing what we want, AND, RETURN or TURN, to the commandments of our Creator in obedience.

——-

Note: Gematria is a Hebrew concept. It is the numerical value of the letters in a Hebrew word or phrase. Biblical Hebrew does not have or use special characters to count or number, like 1, 2, 3. Instead, the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet are used, with Alef = 1, Bet = 2, Gimel = 3, Daled = 4, etc. Gematria is not evil or sin, but supernaturally written into the creation of the Hebrew alphabet by YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים. It is not numerology, which is satan’s corruption of something that YHWH יְהוָה ELohim אֱלֹהִים Himself had already created. For those who have never noticed before, we have an example of Hebrew Gematria in the ReNewed Covenant writings. “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Rev 13:18)
