It’s About Following Yahweh 5

In May we looked firstly at the changing of the moedim dates to pagan holiday dates, in June secondly at the admonishment that we are not supposed to worry about what others think about our celebrating the Moedim of Yahweh, and in July thirdly at whether celebrating those moedim is expected of Newer Covenant people, just as they were for Older Covenant people. Then in August we looked at how thoroughly the Biblical days and months have been changed.

Today, in September, we look at what Yahweh says about his word, his teaching, his Torah. Scripture speaks loudly about the right way to live. The right way to live is by Torah, by his word, by his teaching. Living rightly is called the way and the truth, and it brings life. Let’s look more closely at the Torah and see how it is the way, the truth, and the life, and how living by the Torah is following Yahweh correctly:

Torah Is The Way
Psalms 119:1 – “Blessed are the undefiled in the Way, who walk in the Torah of Yahweh.”
Micah 6:8 – “He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what Yahweh requires of you – to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.”
Proverbs 28:9 – “He who turns away his ear from hearing Torah, even his prayer is an abomination!”

Scripture clearly states that Torah is the Way. And the Way is a correct means of following Yahweh!

Torah Is The Truth
Psalms 1:2 – “But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
Psalm 119:142Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your Torah is the Truth!”
Proverbs 7:2 – “Keep my commandments and live! Guard my Torah as the apple of your eye.”

Scripture also clearly states that Torah is the Truth. And living in the Truth is a correct means of following Yahweh!

Torah Is The Life
Deuteronomy 5:33 – “You shall walk in all the way which Yahweh your God has commanded you, that you may live.”
Psalm 119:144 – “Your Torah is righteous forever. Give me understanding, that I may live.”
Proverbs 6:23 – “For the commandment is a lamp, And the Torah is light. Reproofs of Torah are the way of life.”
Proverbs 13:14 – “The Torah of the wise is a fountain of Life, to depart from the snares of death.”

Scripture also clearly states that Torah is the Life. And following Yahweh brings life. In other words, Torah brings life!

Yeshua Is The Way, The Truth, and The Life
John 1:1 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:14 – “The Word became flesh, and lived among us.”
John 14:6 – “Yeshua said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me’.”

Yahweh’s word is the Torah. Torah is the way, the truth and the life. Yahweh’s word, the Torah, was with him in the beginning, became flesh, and lived amongst us. Yeshua is the living word, or in other words, Yeshua is the living Torah! And since Yeshua is the living Torah, he is indeed the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

Psalm 119:344,45 – “So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever. And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.”
Isaiah 40:8 – “The grass withers, the flower fades; but the Torah of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 51:7 – “Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my Torah; don’t fear the reproach of men, neither be dismayed at their insults.”
2 Timothy 3:16 – “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.”

Torah is still good for reproof, correction, instruction in righteousness, and life! The Torah is clear: anyone who continues to reject Yahweh’s way to worship rightly, unfortunately, is following Satan, not Yeshua. Torah sets forth the obligation for members of Abraham’s family to observe the Moedim through all generations. Anyone who fails to do so is following Satan, not Yeshua. Anyone who continues to worship according to pagan calendar dates is following Satan, not Yeshua.

Torah is the way, the truth, and the life, and living by the Torah is the only way to guarantee that one is following Yahweh / Yeshua correctly. Keeping Torah allows one to ignore the insults and ignorant ranting of other people. Only one who keeps Torah can truly call oneself a Christian.

Final Thought
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew Prophets. The day is coming when Yahweh will show his strength on the mountains of Israel. What is prophesied will come to pass, what is foretold will be made known. Time is short – Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
