Holy Instruction

The Bible from cover to cover is a testimony to Yahuah’s Holy Instructions. “Torah” in Hebrew means Instructions in Righteousness. Keeping The Law is how we will be declared righteous before Yahuah as The Torah is that instruction.
It is in keeping The Law that the process of sanctification is accomplished as we are set apart for Yahuah as a prized possession through our obedience.
Sin is breaking The Law and Grace is forgiveness in light of our inability to keep The Law fully. The love of Yahuah is made complete in those who obey The Law.
Romans 2:13
For it is not those who hear The Law who are righteous in Yahuah's sight, but it is those who obey The Law who will be declared righteous.
Titus 2:14
who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness (abolishing The Law 1 John 3:4) and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works (of The Law James 2:14-26).
Romans 6:19
I am speaking in simple terms because of the frailty of your human nature. Just as you once offered the parts of your body as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater disobedience (to The Law; the carnal mind is hostile to The Law Romans 8:7), so now, in the same way, you must offer the parts of your body as slaves to righteousness (which is keeping The Law Romans 2:13) that leads to sanctification.
1 John 3:4
Whosoever commits sin transgresses also The Law: for sin is the transgression of The Law.

Replacing the Name . . . ?

Deu 18:5 “For יהוה your Elohim has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to serve in the Name of יהוה, him and his sons forever.
Deu 28:10 “And all peoples of the earth shall see that the Name of יהוה is called upon you, and they shall be afraid of you.
2Ch 7:14 and My people upon whom My Name is called, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I shall hear from the heavens, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
Psa 61:5 For You, O Elohim, have heard my vows; You have given me the inheritance Of those who fear Your Name.
Psa 91:14 “Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name.
Psa 118:26 Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה!1 We shall bless you from the House of יהוה.
Isa 43:6 “I shall say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the ends of the earth –
Isa 43:7 all those who are called by My Name, whom I have created, formed, even made for My esteem.”
Isa 52:6 “Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.”
Mic 4:5 For all the peoples walk, each one in the name of his mighty one, but we walk in the Name of יהוה our Elohim forever and ever
Mic 5:4 And He shall stand and shepherd1 in the strength of יהוה, in the excellency of the Name of יהוה His Elohim. And they shall dwell, for at that time He shall be great, to the ends of the earth
EVERYONE who chooses to believe YAHUSHA died for them and joins in the covenant with YAHUAH is expected to learn and abide by His House rules, Torah (the first five Books of the Bible which contains all of YAHUAH's Divine Instructions in Righteousness)...." Same Creator; same rules; no exceptions.
There's more to having a relationship with YAHUAH than just "believing in YAHUSHA." The thing is, our Creator has some rules to follow, and if we refuse, then we don't belong to Him.
What did YAHUAH say about WHO are His people? He gives three requirements in Isaiah 56:6-8...To love His Name, honor His Sabbath and keep His covenant (Torah):
Isa 56:6 “Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to יהוה, to serve Him, and to love the Name of יהוה, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My covenant –
Isa 56:7 them I shall bring to My set-apart mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their slaughterings are accepted on My altar, for My house is called a house of prayer for all the peoples.”
Isa 56:8 The Master יהוה, who gathers the outcasts of Yisra’ĕl, declares, “I gather still others to him besides those who are gathered to him.”

False Shepherd and Prophets

                                                    Contributed by Ed Moore

Yahusha told us how we could identify the false shepherds and prophets.

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

They will look like the sheep.

Mat 7:16  “By their fruits you shall know them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 
Mat 7:17  “So every good tree yields good fruit, but a rotten tree yields wicked fruit. 
Mat 7:18  “A good tree is unable to yield wicked fruit, and a rotten tree to yield good fruit. 
Mat 7:19  “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 
Mat 7:20  “So then, by their fruits you shall know them – 

Their fruit is a false gospel that denies that the law is still in effect. They lead men away from the truth. They teach that the Sabbath and the Feasts of Yahuah are no longer required to be observed. They teach a gospel that has been syncretized with paganism. They teach a different gospel that would not be recognized by the early first century believers.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The word translated “INIQUITY” is the Greek word “ANOMIA” which means a VIOLATION OF THE TORAH or WITHOUT MOSAIC LAW.

They are the teachers of a Torahless gospel, which is LAWLESS

Yahusha is NOT going to say depart from me you who keep the commandments. NO its the exact opposite depart from me YOU WHO DO NOT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS THOSE WHO ARE TORAH-LESS LAWLESS

"Fulfill" does not mean abolish!

Despite the fact that YAHusha clearly stated that He did not come to abolish Torah, but to fulfill (the word "pleroo" meaning TEACH), most Christians believe the opposite.

The Torah is holy, righteous and good. To suddenly have it "nailed to the
cross" as Christians would have us believe, suggests that the things of YAHUAH were originally evil, something to be done away with.
