Has The Law Of Moses Been Set Aside, In And By, The Crucifixion Of Yeshua?

BibleNot long ago, I wrote a number of articles through this very medium, pointing out to readers that the version of clergymen on the crucifixion and resurrection of the Messiah, purported to have taken place within a period between Friday as crucifixion-day and Sunday as resurrection-day, is non-biblical, incredible, and very dangerous to the aspirations of salvation seekers.

In trying to lay bare, and bring to the attention of readers of those articles, the truth that the Messiah never resurrected on the First Day of the Week, Sunday, a day which is at the center of the celebration of Easter Sunday a feast that was unknown to any true, loyal and dedicated followers of the Messiah, until its inception in the fourth century I had to teach on a few things about the holy Sabbath days of the Most High One.

A couple of readers of these articles chose to ask me questions about Sabbath law observance by salvation seekers today, since to them, some parts of the scriptures seem to release all of today’s salvation seekers from any obligations to the Law of Moses.

HEAVEN
One reader specifically referred me to Romans 7:5-10 and Colossians 2:16-19 and wanted to know what my thoughts are on these verses of scripture vis-à-vis my teachings on the holy Sabbath days of the Almighty, and of my views expressed on Easter Sunday celebrations being sinful, and thus, sure to hinder every one of its celebrants, from the chances of one entering into Heaven at the end of Time.

I had no options but to immediately stand up in courage, to teach along the lines of the above title to my article, so as to make known my understanding of these verses of Romans and Colossians; and I hope my questioners will also have courage to sit down and listen, so we may come to the same understanding, as all children of the Kingdom of the Most High One must have same beliefs in matters of the Faith.

And so, without much ado, let us together shoot into orbit, into this teaching. It is my strong desire that this article brings a lot of spiritual insight in the Word of Elohim, to the benefit of all my readers and the questioners of my previous articles in particular.

Let me begin by saying that it will be suicidal, and a ship wreck of one’s salvation, for anyone to isolate and dwell on only Romans 7:5-10, Colossians 2:16-19 or any other scriptures for that matter, in trying to develop one’s faith in the lifestyle commanded of all true followers of Yeshua.

Salvation seekers who isolate and stand on any particular scriptures alone, in pursuit of the lifestyle of the Messiah which all his genuine disciples must emulate, would be dwelling only on the letter, without the spirit of the Word of Elohim. And then, such persons will not have the spiritual fervor for the life in Yeshua, which we all have been called to; such persons will simply die off first, spiritually, and subsequently, physically. Remember the Word of Elohim to all followers of Yeshua, that, “The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life” (Second Corinthians 3:6, KJV).

So then, we must seek to have other portions of scripture, indeed, the whole and full counsel of the Word of Elohim, aid us to understand Romans 7 and Colossians 2 and all other scriptures related to them. The salvation seeker is commanded to fully accept, obey, and each day, live by the totality of the Word of Elohim, if one is to reach one’s intended destination—Heaven.

Let us go to the accounts of the scriptures specifically the Gospel narratives, where our discipleship training by the Master begins from to learn a few things Yeshua has said in general, about the Law of Moses.

We read the Master, saying, in Matthew 5:18-19, KJV: “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till it be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Do salvation seekers of this generation understand these very simple and clear words of the Master and appreciate the power in them? I hope they do.

The fact is that, the laws of Elohim remain in force forever and are meant to be obeyed by all genuine followers of the Master, till at any point in time, they become fulfilled. Whenever any parts of Elohim’s Word are deemed fulfilled, the salvation seeker lives effortlessly in the comfort and blessings of those parts.

If salvation seekers would read further down the above quoted verses, to Matthew 5:20, and then meditate seriously on all these verses, they will understand that, just like the Jew of the sect of Pharisees would not be admitted into the kingdom of heaven, because he picks and chooses portions of the law to live by, anyone who breaks the least commandment of the law, will not also be admitted into heaven.

It is not the case of being allowed entry into heaven, and then being considered least; it is utter refusal of entry! This reveals the great importance Elohim attaches to His Law.

Again, listen to Yeshua talk to his listening and teachable disciples about a time in the future which was scheduled to come after his own physical exit from the earth “But pray ye that your flight be not in winter, neither on the Sabbath day” (Matthew 24:20).

These words of the Master are just too plain and easily understood. Despite all these strong but clear words of the Master in this verse, did I hear some salvation seekers of this generation whisper softly to my hearing that the Sabbath law was over—saying, it had been nailed to the cross when Yeshua hung on it? That must be the most dangerous stance to take and I cannot believe any salvation seeker would ever hold such an idea.

SABBATH

Well, the Master, in talking of a time to come after his crucifixion when this nailing of the Sabbath law to the cross was supposed to have been made, according to the beliefs of some salvation seekers says to his true and genuine disciples that they must pray that the cataclysmic events billed to hit our world, sometime after his physical exit, never hit them on the Sabbath day.

If these events ever came upon them on the Sabbath day, it would put them in a big dilemma. Would they have to run for one’s dear life or to stay? To run for one’s life is to sin against the Sabbath and cause one to die spiritually and be ineligible to enter heaven; to stay put, and not flee, in obedience to the holy law of the Sabbath of the Most High One is to die in the cataclysms.

Ahead of this coming day, salvation seekers have been warned that if they ever found themselves in such a dilemma, they were to remember and be guided by the following scripture: “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it” (Luke 9:24, KJV).

So then, if by the words of Yeshua, his genuine and loyal followers would be living under the influence and power of the Sabbath law long after his Ascension, is it not absurd, in fact, ridiculous, for some salvation seekers today to suppose that this same Sabbath law within the same Dispensation of Grace, is no longer of value and effect on them, simply because some misguided clergymen claim it’s been nailed to the cross?

There is so much every salvation seeker today, striving to please the Good Father, can learn from the lifestyle of those in the early days of the New Testament dispensation, who lived by the faith taught in the scriptures the men who walked, talked, and ate with the Messiah.

The lives lived by those holy men in the accounts of the New Testament must be examples to us today. And so, one may ask to What was the faith and lifestyle of the true followers of Yeshua, the apostles, with regard to the Law of Moses?
