Against popular belief and teaching, our salvation is NOT tied to following the law of MuWShaH (Moses), but in FACT goes back to the promise YaHuWaH made with ABRaHaM. There was NO law during the times of the patriarchs ABRaHaM, YaTsChaQ (Isaac), ChaNuWK (Enoch), MaThuWShaLaCh (Methuselah), YaAQaB (Jacob), and NuWaCh (Noah), etc. Back then communication was open between ALuWaH and His creation, but as the world fell further into sin and disobedience, corrections had to be made. The law was for the lawless and was ONLY for a specific purpose and time. Just like training wheels on a bike, it’s used ONLY for a period of time, which is to help you learn to ride a bike. Once you know how to ride a bike, those training wheels are no longer necessary.
The training wheels are a means to get people moving and PROGRESSING, but was NEVER meant to be the final destination. As a kid, the training wheels were great, they let you ride your bike and play with the other kids. But eventually the training wheels came off and you set off to explore. Some people take a little longer to remove their training wheels, and that is ok. Just make sure you are not stuck in your comfort zone and are no longer progressing. At that point the training wheels are no longer allowing you to get moving; they have become a hindrance to growth – a crutch.
Just like a teacher or schoolmaster, they are there to teach us, but once we graduate from school, we take all we have learned and leave school. Depending on what state you live in, a speeding Law is enforced. This law ONLY pertains to those who practice speeding, however that same law is irreverent to those who DON’T speed. When YaHuWShuWA died on the tree, he then fulfilled the law which wiped away the Laws of MaShaH.
HuWShA 2:10-11 “Hosea”
10 And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.
11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
Notice in the above verse 10 the English word “cease” which is H7673 ShaBaTh (to cease, desist, put an end to, to exterminate, to remove, to cause to desist from, to cause to fail). YaHuWaH is foretelling that He is going to remove the feast days, the new moons, the sabbaths, and all the solemn feasts.
13 MaShiYaCh hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through YaHuWShuWA MaShiYaCh; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is MaShiYaCh.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of ALuWaH in MaShiYaCh, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but ALuWHiYM gave it to ABRaHaM by promise.
Let’s take a look at the English word “promise” in the ABaRiY which is H1696 DaBaR:
We read here that YaHuWaH made a promise to the seed of ABRaHaM which was honored when YaHuWShuWA died on the tree. YaHuWShuWA redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. This honors the blessing or promise YaHuWaH made to Abraham, that his seed might come upon the Gentiles in MaShiYaCh YaHuWShuWA (meaning that we might receive the promise of the RuWaCh through faith). YaHuWShuWA has redeemed us from the curse of the law, redeemed implying “buying back” or “purchasing out of.” It isn’t just saving or rescuing; it is paying a price to rescue. YaHuWShuWA bought us out from under the curse of the law. Simply put, in YaHuWShuWA, we aren’t cursed anymore. Galatians 3:10-12 left us all under a curse, but we are not cursed any more because YaHuWShuWA bought us out from under the curse. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” When did YaHuWShuWA pay this price? The principle of Deuteronomy 21:23 shows that YaHuWShuWA received this curse upon Himself as He hung on the cross, fulfilling the Deuteronomy 21:23 promise of a curse to all who are not only executed but have their bodies publicly exposed to shame. We who are in the truth at one point in our life will symbolically hang from the tree, maybe NOT physically but in RuWaCh. When our friends and family publicly make fun of us, alienate themselves from us, block or unfriend us on social media, etc, these are ALL forms of suffering or hanging on the tree for the truth (YaHuWShuWA). We see that YaHuWShuWA fulfilled the law, thus clearing our debt, washing it away via Ha’MaShiYaCh’s blood.
YaHuWShuWA received this curse, which we deserved, and He did not, so that we could receive the blessing of Abraham, which He deserved and we did not. It would be enough if YaHuWShuWA simply took away the curse we deserved. But He did far more than that; He also gave a gift that we didn’t deserve. The promise of Abraham is what ShAuWL already described in Galatians 3:8-9: the BaRaK of being justified before YaHuWaH by faith instead of works. The Gentiles in MaShiYaCh YaHuWShuWA: This tells us to whom the promise of Abraham comes. ShAuWL didn’t mean that it only comes upon Gentiles, as if Jews were excluded, but that it comes also upon ALL Gentiles who are in MaShiYaCh aHuWShuWA. The phrase in MaShiYaCh aHuWShuWA is important. The promise doesn’t come because they are Gentiles, any more than the promise of being right with ALuWaH comes to Hebrew people because they are ABaRiY. It comes to ALL (NO MATTER the race, color or creed), who are identified as the people (NOT the location) of YaShaRAL (Israel), through Ha’YaShA (H3467 the savior, the deliver 2Sa 22:3) YaHuWShuWA and NOT by their own attempts to justify themselves. Galatians 3:14 talks about receiving the promise of the RuWaCh through faith, this means that this promise is ours in YaHuWShuWA by way of faith and belief in him, and not the principle of law. So, the promise is now there to be received by ALL, but this promise must be earned. The only way to earn this promise is to obey YaHuWaH and making sure the fruit your tree bears is in line with the word (His son YaHuWShuWA, the word made flesh.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto MaShiYaCh, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of ALuWHiYM by faith in MaShiYaCh YaHuWShuWA.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into MaShiYaCh have put on MaShiYaCh.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in MaShiYaCh YaHuWShuWA.
29 And if ye be MaShiYaCh's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Let’s take a look at the English word “schoolmaster” in verse 25, which in the Greek is G3807 paidagogos:
We read that a schoolmaster guides, tutors, supervises and instills life morals into a child. As we make time to read, we see one of the definitions is also “instructor.” This word in the Greek is G3810 paideutēs which means: an instructor, preceptor, teacher, a chastiser. This is exactly what the TuWRaH was designed to do. It was meant for a time period to instruct and chastise YaHuWaH’s elect, causing maturity in the relationship between creation and the Creator YaHuWaH.
Let’s now take a look at the English word “guide” in the ABaRiY which is H5148 NaChaH:
So we now understand that ShAMuWL was saying that the Law of MuWShaH WAS (past tense) our schoolmaster, put in place to help people mend the relationship between mankind and YaHuWaH. The Law was NOT an issue for those who humbly communed, worshiped, praised, proclaimed and served YaHuWaH out of pure love. But for those who wanted to live a life of disobedience, THIS is why the Law was established. A parent doesn’t need to write down a list of chores and consequence to a child that obeys the rules of the home out of love for their parents.
The law is a set of rules or ordinances prescribed by an authority like a government;binding on a community, and violation of these rules requires punishment. With this type of law, depending on the severity, either the law was broken with a penalty or punishment or it was not broken. ABa YaHuWaH gives his children his ThuWRaH in the same manner as parents give their instructions to their children, not in the manner as a government does to its citizens.
ZaMaR 94:12 “Psalms”
12 "Blessed is the man you discipline, O YHWH, the man you teach from your TuWRaH"
Etymology word origin for the English word “Law”.
The acronym for the Old Testament is the ThaNaKh or the first five books (the instructions “ThuWRaH”, the Prophets “NaBiYiM” and the Writings “KhaTuWiYM”). The Torah (ThuWRaH) תורת (H8452), is a set of Instructions, teachings or commandments from YaHuWaH to His people. Violation or disobedience of these instructions warrant disciplinary action. This was to restore order and to train His children to be obedient.
MaShaL 1:8 “Proverbs”
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother
MaShaL 3:1 “Proverbs”
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments
For those who have little children, you train them up to have respect for you as their parent. As they grow older, you establish the rules of the home, entrusting they will obey. Of course, there is a period of favor when they are young and ignorant, but once they are of age, they SHOULD know better. When we grow older, become mature and leave the home, we NEVER forget the things our parents taught and instructed us in. We are instructed in ShaMuWTh 20:12 (Exodus) to honor they father and mother, and by continuing those respectful and obedient traits (out in the world), we are honoring them. When you look deeper into the word English word “honor“ in the ABaRiY you find meanings like: honor, reputation, dignity, splendor, and reverence. When we continue the righteous things we learned as children (by our parents), we reverence them with actions and fruits. We carry the family name or reputation with dignity and honor. This is again why the NAME of YaHuWaH Matters!
This same concept applies to YaHuWaH and us as His children. YaHuWaH shows love by way of discipline which causes growth and maturity. When our children choose to disrespect, be defiant and disobey, that child is punished. If the child desires to follow the rules of the home out of love and obedience, but still falls short of the expectations, in love that child is corrected and counseled. Again, the same applies for YaHuWaH, and when a person continues to CHOOSE to live a life that is NOT in line with His word (YaHuWShuWA), their given favor (ChaNaN) NO LONGER covers their choice to disobey. Again, ignorance (or a mistake) is different, but being shown or told the rules, then choosing to still disobey, consequences are inevitable. Making a mistake in ignorance is doing something that you didn’t know was wrong, BUT disobeying is choosing to do wrong.
The subject of sabbath has been the center of confusion for centuries, but when we take a step back, and humbly seek the RuWaCh of truth (YaHuWShuWA), he will teach us and lead us into all truth (YaHuWChaNaN 16:13 “John”). The ShaBaTh goes all the way back to the beginning when YaHuWaH rested (BaRaShiYTh 2:2 “Genesis”), and lots of “Back to Torah” teachers use certain scriptures (in Acts and Luke) to say that after YaHuWShuWA died on the tree, that the disciples continued to keep the sabbath. You will even hear Christians proudly justify going to church because “Jesus” went to the synagogue or church in the ancients times. When we humbly seek the unbiased truth for clearly and obedience (and NOT to keep tradition), the truth will be revealed. Let’s take a look at some popular verses of scripture that the Torah teachers like to use to put people back into bondage.
MaShaL 17:1-4 “Acts”
1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:
2 And ShAuWL (Paul), as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
3 Opening and alleging, that MaShiYaCh must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this YaHuWShuWA, whom I preach unto you, is MaShiYaCh.
4 And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.
Here we see that ShAuWL went to a ShaBaTh service where there were both Jews and Greeks. The scripture also mentions that this was a regular custom of ShAuWL. YaHuWShuWA Ha’MaShiYaCh also went to these, but was it to hear the word in the synagogue? Scriptures read that ShAuWL went there for three ShaBaThs to reason with them out of the scriptures.
Let’s look at the etymology origin of the English word “reason.”
Now, in MaShaL 17:2, let’s take a look at the English word “reason” in the Greek “dialegomai” (G1256).
So we see that a little research educates us in that the dialegomai means to dispute, discuss thoroughly, to argue, ponder, to converse. This is where the English word “dialogue” comes from which means: a conversation between two or more persons, from Greek dialogos "conversation, dialogue," related to dialogesthai (converse), from dia (as in dia-logue) meaning: across, speak between and to gather together to speak, to pick out words. Does this sound like ShAuWL was going to the synagogue to take part of ShaBaTh, or to defend the truth of the scriptures among the corrupt? Here are another few verses that the “Back to Torah” teachers like to use, to justify that apostles continued to observe the ShaBaTh after the MaShiYaCh died.
MaShaL 13:13-15 “Acts”
13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.
14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on
When you read the rest of the chapter, you come to find that the Jews were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by ShAuWL (Paul), contradicting and blaspheming. We see that the words of fire that ShAuWL spoke to the Jews caused them to get pricked. When the Jews saw that there were multitudes of people wanting to hear ShAuWL, they realized that the people were waking up. They now saw ShAuWL and BaRNaBiY (Barnabas) as a threat to their status. It goes on to read that the Jews stirred up the devout and honorable women, and the chief men of the city, which expelled ShAuWL and BaRNaBiY. ShAuWaL exposed the true fruit of these men. If these Jews had the true Ha’QaDaSh RuWaCh in them, they would have NEVER acted in this manner. Instead they acting in the flesh and in emotion. These were the type of men observing the ShaBaTh, and there is NO WAY the MaShiYaCh or the apostles would go to attend the festivities of the ShaBaTh with these carnal men, NO. ShAuWL and BaRNaBiY went there on the ShaBaTh day to preach and to share the fire of Ha’BaShuWRaH (the good news). They went to a dark place with the light to draw those who had ears to hear!
MaShaL 18:1-4 “Acts
1 After these things ShAuWL departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.
3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
Scripture reads in verse 4 “And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath”, here we have that Greek word “dialegomai”. ShAuWL was very effective as he reasoned (discussed, argued debated) among the Jews and Greeks. The Greeks who attended the synagogue were Gentiles interested in and sympathetic with Judaism. ShAuWL describes the character of his bold preaching in Corinth, in 1 Corinthians 2:1-16, where he declared, “For I determined not to know anything among you except YaHuWShuWA MaShiYaCh and Him crucified”. So again we see ShAuWL didn’t go to the synagogue on the seventh day to enjoy the service, NO. He was there to shine the light of truth on that dark and corrupt synagogue. Let’s continue reading:
MaShaL 18:5-8 “Acts
5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, ShAuWL was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that YaHuWShuWA was MaShiYaCh.
6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped ALuWaH, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the master with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
9 Then spake YHWH to ShAuWL in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of ALuWHiYM among them.
In verse 6 it reads they (the Jews) opposed him and blasphemed, this blasphemy must have been directed toward YaHuWShuWA, because ShAuWL preached YaHuWShuWA is the MaShiYaCh (MaShaL 18:5 “Acts”). ShAuWL strongly sensed his responsibility to preach to the Jews first (Romans 1:16), but when his message was rejected, he wasted no time in going to the Gentiles. ShAuWL fulfilled the RuWaCh of what YaHuWShuWA said in MaThaThiYaHuW 7:6 (Matthew). Do not give what is QaDaSh to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. When people are determined to reject the gospel, we shouldn’t keep trying with them until the door is open again. ShAuWL dusted himself off, and in doing so that not a speck of dust from that corrupt synagogue would remain on his clothes, much less his sandals.
This was a dramatic way of expressing his rejection of their rejection. As we read on, Crispus, (the ruler of the synagogue), believed on YaHuWShuWA with all his household. This shows that ShAuWL treated the Jews of Corinth with love and grace even after they rejected him and the truth. He certainly did not forbid Jewish people from coming to YaHuWShuWA, he merely switched the focus of his evangelism from the Jews to the Gentiles. In verse 10, YaHuWShuWA didn’t tell ShAuWL that his opponents wouldn’t try to stop him, only that they would not be successful (no one will hurt him). YaHuWShuWA said “For I am with you”, This promise was the basis for YaHuWShuWA’s command to not be afraid and to keep preaching. This additional promise was a constant assurance to ShAuWL, who must have had doubts about his survival and health when dealing with the assembly in Corinth. ShAuWL was on mission in Corinth for a year and six months, which seems to be longer than in any other city where he founded a assembly.
His ministry at Corinth is described simply as teaching the word of ALuWHiYM among them. The duration of ShAuWL’s stay in Corinth shows where his heart was for the ministry. He was fully dedicated to making disciples, and was not an lukewarm evangelist. After a year and six months, the ruler of the synagogue was finally converted to YaHuWShuWA. The scripture says that ShAuWL was there every SaBaTh for a year and six months. Although the synagogue in Corinth was corrupt, ShAuWL was instructed by ALuWaH to labor there for those who had ears to hear. How interesting is it that the Chief ruler of the synagogue believed in YaHuWShuWA, yet the congregation (and those who were leaders in the synagogue) rejected the truth.
Scriptures say there is nothing new under the sun, and this same thing still happens in the harlot churches (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10). You’d be very surprised to know that so many pastors agree the savior’s name was NEVER Jesus and that what’s being taught in the churches is wrong, BUT due to compromise they continue the lie. So once again we see that ShAuWL was NOT going to the ShaBaTh day to rub shoulders with upstanding, YaHuWaH filled, truth seekers, NO! ShAuWL when to the synagogue on the ShaBaTh because he knew people would be there, in hopes he could bring those out who YaHuWaH wanted to come out! This would be like us who are in the truth, willingly attending the harlot church on Sunday. We know how seductive and corrupt those blasphemous places are, but we also over stand there are so many that DON'T know they are in darkness. Unless we are lead by the RuWaCh of truth (YaHuWShuWA), to go back into Babylon, we continue to obey ABa YaHuWaH (come out of her my people).
56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
When we take a look in the Strong’s Concordance at that word Sabbath in Luke 23:56, we get G4521 σάββατον
We read here that the seventh day of week was called Shabbath (a rest day) and that it also required a QaDaSh (set part) festival. We also read further and find that its root word for ShaBaTh takes us back to the ABaRiY or Hebrew H7673.
As mentioned before in HuWShA 2:10-11 (Hosea), we see that the root word ShaBaTh in ABaRiY (Hebrew) means to cease, rest, put an end to. So, for the ABaRiY people, in their culture the 7th day was called ShaBaTh (a day of rest). YaHuWShuWA Ha’MaShiYaCh said himself that he supersedes or is master of the ShaBaTh, and so when he died on the tree, he became our eternal rest (MaTaThiYaHuW 12:1-8 “Matthew”, Mark 2:23-28 and Luke 6:1-5), thus filling what YaHuWaH foretold in HuWShA 2:10-11. YaHuWShuWA’s death put to rest, caused to cease, put away or exterminated ALL required festivals, feasts days, ShaBaThs and precepts attached to the law. We must remember that back then, many were still keeping these feasts, but were STILL living unrighteous lives in the eyes of YaHuWaH (Pharisees and Sadducees included). Just because people were growing out their beards, cutting foreskins, wearing head coverings, keeping the old law, fasting on Saturday, observing feasts, etc, didn’t mean they received the truth (the RuWaCh of YaHuWShuWA) in their hearts / minds. YaHuWaH already dealt with this type of selfish and disobedient mindset with YaShaRAL in YaShAYaHuW 1:10-19 (Isaiah), which he HATED!
When we humbly receive Ha’QaDasH RuWaCh (the set apart spirit) of YaHuWShuWA in us, he becomes our eternal rest in which we rest daily. When YaHuWaH looks upon us, He sees His son, who is without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:26-27) causing us to fulfill the law. This DOES NOT mean we have a licences to sin (H2398 to intentionally miss the correct way, to go wrong, to miss the mark, or incur penalty) but if we truly have the RuWaCh of truth in us (YaHuWShuWA), we will naturally uphold the first two commandments, and ALL the rest will easily follow. We obey because we love YaHuWaH, and NOT because we want something in return.
MaThaThiYaHuW 22:36-40 “Matthew”
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 YaHuWShuWA said unto him, Thou shalt love YHWH thy ALuWaH with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
So what the disciples where doing in Luke 23:56 was simply just resting on that seventh day. YaHuWShuWA himself speaks about working on the ShaBaTh in MaThaThiYaHuW 12:8-13 (Matthew). It is silly to think that on Saturday (the seventh day of the week) if someone needed prayer, or if someone wanted you to share the truth of scripture with them or that the work around your house ALL needed to cease due to the temporal Law, this is ridiculous. YaHuWaH in His infinite wisdom looked down the corridors of time to our modern times, knowing that we would be living in a world FULL of pagan traditions and false deities (DaBaRiYM 28:64-68 “Deuteronomy”). YaHuWaH KNEW there would be NO WAY to keep these Laws, that’s why again the law was ONLY meant for a time frame, and for those who were lawless. Those who wanted to get right WOULD practice obedience, and those that wanted to continue their sinful lifestyles, NOT practicing obedience (using animal sacrifices to atone their sin), their chance to learn was limited (ALaPh ShaMuWAL 15:22 “1 Samuel”). Again YaHuWShuWA ended the old Law (on the tree) and created the new covenant which is about the righteousness of the Law. The Law was for those who were lawless. Remember before the Law, the ancients gladly gave ALL reverence, praise, HaLaL and esteem unto YaHuWaH on a regular basis (daily).
A replica of the tabernacle in southern YaShaRAL, that represents where Israelite under the old covenant approached YaHuWaH and were cleansed from sin.
Seven Yearly ShaBaThs
We know and over stand that if someone says they are following the Law, this means they must observe ALL the precepts of the Law. This is just like the watered down Christians who cherry pick the scriptures, and ONLY follow the commandments that THEY feel comfortable with. EVERYTHING YaHuWaH does has order, purpose, and foreshadowed things to come, and regarding the feasts of the Law, YaHuWaH required ALL those who are under the Law to follow it to the letter. These Laws and precepts were NOT to be played with, and people COULD NOT choose how, where or when they wanted to observe it.
It is advisable to read Leviticus 23 from the scriptures to get a full understanding, for scripture reminds us that we must do so (MaShaL 4:5-9 “Proverbs”). All of the Festivals are listed in Leviticus 23. All were observed at the sanctuary in the wilderness where YaHuWaH appointed it to be, then later at the temple in YaRuWShaLaM (Jerusalem). All were accompanied by sacrifices and offerings. All were prophetic of future events—all of which have been, or are in the process of being fulfilled except The Feast of Tabernacles. Seven yearly sabbaths were observed in connection with these feasts, and were to be followed to the T! The altar of burnt offerings was stationed inside the tabernacle courtyard. YaHuWaH sent fire from ShaMaH (heaven) that continually burned on the altar (Lev. 9:23–24; 6:12). No man made fire was allowed for sacrifice. Also let’s point out again that YaHuWaH designates where these feast will take place, and three of those were required to be held in Jerusalem.
The Passover, the Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles required that all able-bodied ABaRiY males travel to YaRuWShaLaM to attend the feast and offer sacrifices. All three of these feasts required that “first fruit” offerings be made at the temple as a way of expressing thanksgiving for YaHuWaH’s provision. The Feast of First fruits celebrated at the time of the Passover included the first fruits of the barley harvest. The Feast of Weeks was in celebration of the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Tabernacles involved offerings of the first fruits of the olive and grape harvests. So, to ALL those who say they are keeping or observing the ShaBaTh, did they call on the name of YaHuWaH, and did they receive instruction as to where to in YaRuWShaLaM to hold these feasts?
DaBaRiYM Chapter 16 “Deuteronomy”
2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto YHWH thy ALuWaH, of the flock and the herd, in the place which YHWH shall choose to place his NAME there.
6 But at the place which YHWH thy ALuWaH shall choose to place his NAME in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.
11 And thou shalt rejoice before YHWH thy ALuWaH, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which YHWH thy ALuWaH hath chosen to place his NAME there.
Required to be held in YaRuWShaLaM (Jerusalem), this included the slaying of the Passover lamb on the 14th of the first month, partaking of the lamb and observing the Passover sabbath on the 15th. This lasted seven days and the first day coincided with the Passover on the 15th and continued through the 21st day of the first month, (Nisan). The 15th and 21st were sabbaths.
2) Feast of Unleavened Bread
Why unleavened bread? Leaven represented sin and it was also the type of bread eaten the night that they left Egypt. On the second day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread was the offering of the “Wave Sheaf.”
3) Feast of First fruits
The “Wave Sheaf” was the offering of the first of the barley harvest (Leviticus 23:9-14). This represented MaShiYaCh's presentation before the Father on that day--Sunday the 16th of Nisan in 31 AD (YaHuWChaNaN 20:17 “John”). Barley is the first grain to ripen in the region of Israel. Barley is almost drought resistant and is known as the poor-man's-bread flour. Thus Barley is the first fruit to be brought before YaHuWaH. A sheaf of this grain is then waved in YaHuWaH's presence and a male, unblemished lamb is sacrificed. They would give this gift to YaHuWaH every year on this day, just as they consecrated (dedicated) all of the rest of their firstborn children when they were born. This was called the "first fruits" of their harvest and represented MaShiYaCh who is called “the first fruits” from the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:20-28 says, "For as in ADaM all die, even so in MaShiYaCh shall all be made alive”. But every man in his own order: MaShiYaCh the first fruits; afterward they that are MaShiYaCh’s at his coming.
4) Feast of Weeks (Pentecost)
Required to be held in YaRuWShaLaM, this feast and sabbath day was to be observed fifty days after the Passover sabbath. It is a harvest festival that is celebrated seven weeks and one day after the first Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Offerings were to be made of the first fruits of that harvest during this feast. Also seven first-year lambs that were without blemish along with one young bull and two rams. (Leviticus 23:16-19) This feast represented, in type, the outpouring of The QaDaSH RuWaCh on the Day of Pentecost. All this historically occurred, fulfilling the prophecy.
5) Feast of Trumpets
This was celebrated on the 1st day of the 7th month. Its purpose was to herald the coming of the day of atonement on the 10th day, calling the people to prepare their hearts, examining their lives and making things right with YaHuWaH.
6) The Day of Atonement
This was understood to be a day of judgment when all sin was dealt with and the people, the priest and the tabernacle / temple were cleansed. The high priest would then place his hands on the head of the live goat (determined by casting lots) and confess the sins of the whole nation before the altar of burnt offering. Finally, he would give the live goat to an appointed person who carried it outside the camp and set it free into the wilderness. Symbolically, the "scapegoat" would carry away the sins of the people (Leviticus 16). Leviticus 23:26-32 Chapter 16, discusses a series of animal offerings for this occasion, and Israel’s high priest entering the QaDuWSh of QaDuWSh of the physical tabernacle. It also commands a fast on this day.
A guilty person brought an animal for a sin sacrifice to the tabernacle. After the animal was killed near the gate, the priest brought its blood and fat to the altar. He burned the fat on the altar and poured the blood on the golden horns and around the altar.
7) Feast of Tabernacles
Required to be held in YaRuWShaLaM, five days after the day of Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles began, not only as a reminder of the Children of YaShaRAL (Israel) dwelling in tents in their sojourn to KhaNaNiY (Canaan), but also prophetically of the future rest in Heaven of the faithful. It was a joyous time because the people felt cleansed from the burden of their sins and at peace with YaHuWaH. This feast lasted for 8 days with sacrifices each day. The 15th and 22nd were sabbaths.
Trip to YaRuWShaLaM
So, for all those who say they keep the ShaBaTh and observe the feast here in the Americas, how is that possible? Are they specially going to YaRuWShaLaM (Jerusalem) three times a year with their cattle? Do they have land in which they raise flocks of lambs, and ship them to YaShaRAL? With all the protest going on in Israel regarding animal cruelty, transporting animals over seas is getting increasingly hard. Whether you bring your own or buy lambs in YaShaRAL when you arrive (make sure they are the firstborn), animals are required. Also, are they taking into account that the ABaRiY way of counting days was changed to the now Gregorian calendar? The days and times were different back then, which means the feasts begin at sundown on the evening of the previous day. This effects modern day travel time and dates, so requesting time off from work must be done accordingly. Let’s also state that specifically the tribe of Levi are to facilitate these feasts and ShaBaTh’s. Per YaHuWaH’s mandate, anybody else outside the tribe of Levi is NOT permitted to set up these events, so make sure you see their authentic, Levite bloodline documents. Last and certainly NOT least, be prepared to give 10% of your first fruits to the Levites (Numbers 18:21–26).
The other eleven tribes of YaShaRAL were required to give the first fruits of all their produce and the firstborn of their flocks and herds (Numbers 18:12-15). These portions were to go the Levites because they did not get an inheritance like the other eleven tribes. Firstborn and first fruits were NEVER the same all depending on what your land yielded that year. Weather was always a factor which affected how much produce your land yielded. Not to mention your cow or ewe might not give birth again that year, yet the first still belonged to YaHuWaH, and was given to the Levites. YaHuWaH promised to BaRaK this giving of the first fruits and firstborn in faith: Honor YaHuWaH with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine (MaShaL 3:9-10 “Proverbs”).
This wasn't the end of YaShaRAL's required giving; they were also told to leave a portion of their fields unharvested so the poor could eat from those portions (Leviticus 19:9-10), a Passover sacrifice was required from each family every year (ShaMuWTh 12:43-47 “Exodus-47), sometimes a temple tax was required (MaChaMiYaHuW 10:32-33 “Nehemiah ), or a special tribute (Numbers 32:28-29). It is hard to estimate exactly how much the first fruits and firstborn obligations amounted to, because it would differ from family to family. ALL of these precepts (including many more) go along with the law, and are requirements for those who say they are following the law and observer the ShaBaTh. For ALL those who say they observe the ShaBaTh, feast days and keep the laws precepts of old covenant, put themselves back under the law. If they fail or miscalculate any of these precepts, or even profane the NAME of YaHuWaH, they have just disobeyed and are to be put to death!
21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy ALuWaH: I am YHWH.
30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am YHWH your ALuWaH.

14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to DEATH: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to YHWH: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to DEATH.
MaSPaR 15:32-36 “Numbers”
32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto MuWShaH and AHRuWN, and unto all the congregation.
34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
35 And YHWH said unto MuWShaH, The man shall be surely put to DEATH: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as YHWH commanded MuWShaH.

Growth in the RuWaCh
These traditional acts (The Law and the ShaBaTh) were just a foreshadowing something greater, which was the coming of the MaShiYaCh YaHuWShuWA. The MaShiYaCh would then supersede (take the place of a person or thing previously by way of authority) that which was done in the past. Everything that ABa YaHuWaH has done throughout the scriptures has been done to mature us in the RuWaCh. As a Father continues to teach and show his child to mature and grow, the same goes for us being the children of YaHuWaH. Understanding the Law and the ShaBaTh are just subjects that comes down to a person’s growth in the RuWaCh. Some people just DON’T want to grow up, and this mindset is very prevalent in today’s modern times. So much focus is on emotion and feelings, but we know that FACTS DON’T care about people’s feelings. Growing up in the RuWaCh requires that we put away childish things, mature and separating from people / things that hinder our growth in YaHuWaH.
In the carnal sense, most look at the idea of becoming a mature adult and say “NOPE, this takes too much work and accountability”, so people prefer behaving, dressing, talking and thinking the way they did in their youth. Same goes for the truth, many go right back to Babylon (church, religion, calling on false names) because walking in the truth requires REAL change. Due to the conditioning of this world, (and the traditions of those someone looks up too) they’re afraid of not fitting in, being alone and long to be part of something (or a group). People associate growing up means “No More Fun”. Being a child is fun, and children often live in the moment, act out in emotion and aren’t weighed down by all the concerns and accountability that comes with adulthood (same with the truth walk). This is usually the mindset of young adults, because they have yet to experience the school of hard knocks (life).
For those who have experienced serious childhood trauma, they’re far more comfortable living in a fantasy world. Until this experience is dealt with, this mindset can carry over through one’s mental development. Refusing to grow or mature is a form of escape and this is easier than living in reality. Especially when it comes to dealing with trying circumstances, correction or hard decisions. Most children DON'T like correction and rather throw a fit because it feels good emotionally. A child will act out in emotion, and say things they DON'T mean all because it goes against THEIR emotional attachment to a toy, bottle or way of thinking (this also goes for those in the truth). ALL this very relevant in this truth walk and growth in the RuWaCh. Growing in the RuWaCh because we allow YaHuWaH to teach us is a natural progression for ALL those who love ABa YaHuWaH. If we say we love YaHuWaH and YaHuWShuWA we must stand on truth and live by the scriptures (for it will defend itself). When you speak and are in line with YaHuWShuWA’s words (and NOT your own), you are backed by truth / FACT and NOT emotion. You will then respond and act in truth / FACT and NOT emotion.
Do we grow our beards out, do we keep the feasts days, are we to fast on Saturday, are women to wear a head covering, what about women wearing makeup or long pants in our modern times? All these questions are answered in these teachings below. If we live by the law, then we will be judged by the law. Remember the law (the mosaic law of MuWShaH) was created for the lawless and was ONLY for a period of time (like training wheels on a bike), NOT forever. The purpose of the law was to help the lawless come back to YaHuWaH. Take your bible, pen, pencils, paper or notepads and follow along with in dynamic teachings below regarding the law. It’s time to again break chains off of brains!
Paul Nwagha answers a question regarding the law and explains how YaHuWShuWA breaks the chains of bondage the ThuWRaH teachers put people back under.
THE MYSTERY OF REST
Ending the confusion regarding the Sabbath day
In this teaching Mike does a deep drive into the word sabbath, its origins and what it truly means.
TORAH PT1 LIFTING THE VEIL
TORAH PT2 LIFTING THE VEIL
Unlearn, Deprogram and Re-think EVERYTHING you were taught!
Once the truth is given to a person, if that person TRULY loves the Creator, YHWH is expecting they make an immediate change, NOT take their sweet time getting there when they feel like it!
AShaH 17:30 “Acts”
30 And the times of this ignorance YHWH winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent
If you DON'T believe us regarding these facts, GOOD! Go,do your own research, ASK YOUR PASTOR and find out for yourself, but NOW you can’t say "I didn't know!"
2 KhAPhA 2:21 "Peter"
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
ABaRiY 10:26 "Hebrews"
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins
