Paul (Sha’ul), as the apostle to the Gentiles, was concerned that the believing community knew what the role and citizenship was of the non-Jew convert.

Steven Salter in his book, Galatians, Law & Grace Companions in Redemption explains it like this.  p. 140

“The believers at Galatia were new believers and their knowledge of the Scriptures were very limited.”

Party Factions in Galatia…at least these three.

  1.  Those that followed Sha’ul (Paul).
  2. Those that followed Judaizers
  3. Those that wanted to incorporate pagan practices into their worship of G-d.

The first group we see also in I Corinthians 1:10-13.  There too the believers seemed to have a problem in following those that lead them into the Kingdom of G-d.

Today we have the similar problem of people desiring to follow teachers instead of God.  The ‘truth’ is what we are to seek after, not people.  Judaizers were making headway in Galatia.  They wanted Gentiles to become Jews according to all the ways Jews did.  Sha’ul was telling them that circumcision was not necessary.  Men today, take Paul’s conversation as if he was dismissing all of God’s instructions.  Greek thinking has an, ‘all of nothing’ mentality. Today men do the ‘nothing’ mentality whereas the Judaizers wanted an ‘all’ (do what the Jews do to be part of God).

Probable thinking by Judaizers:  ‘Judaism teaches that a non-Jew must first become a G-dfearer until such a time that they are knowledgeable enough to convert and then they are allowed into the kingdom of G-d.  What Sha’ul taught you was only temporary, we have come to complete your learning and transition into the Kingdom of G-d.’

The Judaizers were well-meaning as this is how they were raised from birth but they were used by the enemy because of their ignorance.  This is what today’s Christian must dig deeply to prevent.

Mathew 5:22 “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of judgment.  And, whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council.  But, whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Greek word for fool is, moros.  This is not the correct meaning for what Yeshua/Jesus is communicating in Matthew. ” The Hebrew equivalent is, נבל, naval.  It means a person that denies the faith and belief in G-d and His redemption and implies that he never will accept it.”

Another Hebrew word that is like, נבל, naval, is, רשע, rasha, wicked.  This is the word used during the judgment phase of the Feast of Rosh hashanah also known as Feast of Trumpets.  During this feast it is taught that three books are opened by the Heavenly Court:

  1. Sifron shel Tzaddikim,  The Book of the Righteous
  2. Sifron shel Rashaim, The Book of the Wicked
  3. Sifron shel Beinoniyim, The Book of the Intermediates

When these books are opened, those that are considered righteous are immediately written in the Book of the Righteous.  Those that are considered wicked, are immediately written in the Book of the Wicked.  Those that have not made up their minds are written in the Book of the Intermediates until Yom Kippur known as the Day of Atonement on Tishrei 10.   At this time they are either written in the Book of Righteous or the Book of the Wicked and the Book of Intermediates is done away with.

This teaches man what the judgments are that happen on Rosh Hoshanah and Yom Kippur.  On Rosh Hoshanna the righteous and wicked are written and sealed in their books, but the intermediates are given until Yom Kippur, year 6008 from creation, to get their lives in order and thereby escape punishment for their sins.

The list indicates seven days without counting the days of Rosh Hoshannah and Yom Kippur.  This seven days represents the Time of Jacob’s Trouble….known as the Tribulation Period.  

The Intermediates have this time to accept G-d and His Messiah to escape the final judgment of Yom Kippur after which the fate of all are sealed.

To call one a naval, fool, or rasha, wicked is to say that they have no hope for redemption and are vessels fit for destruction.  We are not in a place to know such things and should never make such a statement concerning another’s soul.

The Day of Remission 

Last day of 7-year Shemittah cycle 

Sunday, September 13, 2015

If there is anything left to fall…it is to fall.  There are waves in that fall and so it is not exactly about a day or hour, but it is about a time of release.  Sins are released by the blood of Messiah.  No work we can do can save us from being a moros (fool) or a naval/rasha (wicked).  God will look at the heart and judgment falls…you are lifted up or cast down.

Do you want a good next year on this earth?  Elul is the month for Tashuvah..repentance and return.  I am my beloveds and He is mine.  I fall into His hands!

Mathew 5:22 “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of judgment.  And, whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council.  But, whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Christians are falling because they are calling their brother, ‘Fool’.    Someone who has accepted Messiah Yeshua as their Savior is not a fool.  They are people who have chosen to call him by his Hebrew name.  They believe Jesus is coming back as the Messianic King Yeshua.  The Holy Spirit gives the desire to serve God and study to show themselves a workman for the Lord.  When these are called, Fool…. the one who says that is in judgment of hell fire.

My sacrifice this month will be to try to prove the writings of Paul.   God will be the one who judges those that think they are more righteous.  Those that condemn anyone for carrying a ‘bag of laws’ on their back in order to be saved need to consider the individual caring this ‘light yoke’.  Is this person in love with their Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ)?  Then, after that conviction, this saved person should become a disciple and do as their Master Yeshua did…Torah.  I have never felt bad about not wanting to murder, not wanting to lie, not wanting to commit adultery…. etc.   The Holy Spirit convicts me of wrong and I don’t do  it.

The Holy Spirit can NOT murder.  If we believe that a person can actually murder another individual and call themselves saved, we are putting the Holy Spirit as a murderer.   God does NOT murder…God does not violate His own instructions (Torah).    This person does NOT have the Holy Spirit at the time of the act.  Repentance to God is now required.   Forgiveness is up to God.  What does the Torah say about one that has murdered?  If it was intentional…his life should be taken.   If it was an accident, he runs to a ‘city of refuge’ where the priest is and lives there until the priest dies.  Study this…..and you will see how God thinks…these are not my words, but His.

I need to flee from temptation so I am not deceived and sin.  It is the Holy Spirit who helps my desire to stay on track with Gods ways and not the ways that seem right to man.  We are kept in the Father’s hand not to be snatched away, but it is not following God’s instructions that leads to us thinking we can be okay…just with this ‘little’ thing.  We now are about to ‘miss the mark’; sin.  But, I can return, Tushuvah, to my beloved in ‘true’ repentance…which is returning to Torah (God’s instructions).

This Hell Fire is what is going to occur to those that consider themselves above God’s instruction.   The quenching of the Holy Spirit is what is not ‘forgiveable’.  Without the Holy Spirit we bring this eternal condemnation on ourselves….  You are in a ‘sanctified’ mode when you are operating with the Holy Spirit.  He has sealed you in a very secure place.  But, if you step outside The Torah…God will not be mocked.  He can NOT be present with sin…it violates Him.  Yeshua Messiah is the Messiah because they could find not one violation of Torah when He lived.  And Jesus/Yeshua came back for forty days to complete the mission of showing them what the Torah of the ancient fathers was.  That is what they were to return to.  The old paths, the ancients ways Moses set out for them.  The stress was too great to tear down the walls that had been set up that the Temple walls were allowed to be torn down.

The Temple will be built when Torah returns in the hearts of the people.  It will return when the Jew and Gentile say together, “Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD.”  It will be said from Jerusalem, the footstool of God.

Ignorance is NOT bliss.  Gentles have become so haughty that they can’t see through their scales.  I would rather believe how I believe in the Blood of Messiah and how I am now suppose to live, by His Words, than be threatened by Hell fire as these people are being threatened for being so condemning of God’s children who love Him with their hearts.  Remember the man who was preaching about Messiah and Jesus’ disciples were upset because of the way he was doing it?  Yeshua told them to leave him alone, as his message was still the same as what Yeshua was teaching them.  We all need to look at the log in our own eye before we condemn and call other Christians, ‘fools’.  Today, the Jew and Gentile both see in part.  Patience with each other is necessary in these times of change.

At Yom Kippur, Tishrei 10, there are 70 bulls offered for the nations so we see a sifting and perfecting of the nations to come to know who Messiah is. They will know their Messiah because He keeps Torah.  He can NOT be accepted as Messiah if He violates Torah in one point.  The Jews can NOT and should NOT accept a Greek Jesus as the Christians present.  It is a Jewish Yeshua that is returning.  Will you be able to identify Him.  I know we will because He will come as lightning from the east to the west…there will be NO one that denies this is Messiah when He arrives.

My friend from Arizona did a beautiful article on the Holy Spirit.  He gave me permission to attach it.

Then….up next…. The battles the Apostles fought…..
