Why I believe what I do
In the spring of 2004 during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, YHVH showed me a vision.
I was sitting in my chair and my Bible was just a few feet away upon my coffee table. I saw a great majestic Tree of Life rise up out of the Gospels and as I stared at this another tree arose, it was black and gnarled quite ugly really. This black tree arose out of the epistles of Paul. I was astonished. The contrast between the two was startling and drastic. The epistles of Paul were death, and the gospels of Yahshua were and are life.
I remember thinking about Adam and Eve in the Garden and how we had better leave off and repent of any judgment ever leveled against these two, because have been given the same opportunity to choose life that they had. Yet we should have been far better equipped to deal with subterfuge.
So Christianity as it whole heartedly follows after Paul forsaking the teachings of Yahshua and His Commands to His twelve and all those that would follow after, that they are between a rock and hard spot. Millions will stand defend Paul to the death. While similarly these same will deny Yahshua to the death. They don’t believe that that’s what they are doing. But Yahshua commanded obedience His teachings and contained within those teachings is Torah or the Law. Which Yahshua said should be obeyed and practiced.
Folks love Paul and his cheap easy gospel. They figure they are eternally safe and saved through them, but the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth says otherwise. The Father of Yahshua says otherwise and of course Yahshua says otherwise also. But this is not good enough for the Christian who has fully put his faith in Paul. For these the Torah is anathema even though they claim it is good and for a time needful. But after Paul denounced the Covenant of Sinai as a Yoke of Bondage and with it, the Ten Commandments, Christians have hearkened diligently to the voice of Paul in his denunciation of the Gospel of Yahshua or rather the message that Yahshua taught.
James, Yahshua’s own brother is also denounced by many of these Christians taking up the banner of Martin Luther who fought vigorously to have James removed from the Bible, because as Luther was well aware, the book of James completely contradicts the doctrines of Paul. One would think that of all the people on planet earth, James would have known his own brother better than any one else. Yet this thought never seems to occur to Christians folks. One would think that 1 John would be seriously hearkened to, yet this is not the case either. John also seriously refutes Paul. Especially when he says ‘little children be not deceived, he who does righteousness is righteous.’ As opposed to Paul claiming that righteousness is simply believing that you are without the corresponding works of righteous that are so prevalent through out the Bible with the exception of the letters of Paul.
With at least forty different writers in the Bible contradicting Paul, one would think that we should pay close attention to what they all had to say as opposed to only listening to the one who denounced all these writers as being unrighteous. As Paul said ‘there is not one righteous, no not one.’ Have you thought about that? The unrighteous here includes Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah and of of course many many others including John the Baptist. How dare anyone question these men and stand in agreement with Paul that they were the unrighteous? Especially considering that Yahshua said there were many righteous and yet his words are neglected in favor of Paul.
So what did all these righteous have in common? Every single one of them including Abraham kept and did Torah/Law. Proof text on Abraham having the Torah which nearly all Christians deny is found in Gen 26:5
5 because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.”
So much for Abraham not having the Torah.
