Do you bear the Root, or is the Root bearing you? What Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off. Regardless of what type of branch we are, if we are not connected to the root of that tree which is Messiah, we wither and die.

– Chapter 11 • Part 2 –

Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you,being a wild olive eytz, were grafted in among them, and with them you partake of the Root and fatness of the olive eytz.

The origin of grafting in the bible:

Genesis 12:3 and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed/mingled.

Commentary on Genesis 12.3 by R. Eleazer: “what is the meaning of this verse in Scripture? I have two good shoots to graft onto you: Ruth of Moab and Naamah of Ammon. (b. Yevamot 63.a).

Rabbi Judah (an unregenerate Rabbi commenting on Genesis 12.3) “all grafting that does not take root within three days will not take root.”

Romans 11:18 Boast not against the cultivated branches. But if you boast, you better remember that you do not bear the Root, but the Root bears you.
Romans 11:19 You will say then, The cultivated branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

The Church triumphant has become indistinguishable from the nations – trodden down and soiled within the culture where it lays bare.

יהוה is the master Arborist.

Who is the True Lawgiver, man or Yahuwah? Yahuwah’s government looks nothing like the corrupt government of men.

Does Shaul/Paul advocate for blind submission to government authority? The first seven verses of Romans 13 have been used and abused by the Institutional Church to establish religio-political authoritarian positions. Scripture advocates for behavior that is lawful to Yahuwah, refuting tyranny that is a terror to good works.

Does your zealousness for the Father and His Torah cause you to lose discernment when it comes to the Son? On its own, Torah will not lead us to total righteousness. Only covenant relationship through Yahusha will allow us to enter into forensic righteousness before Yahuwah.

How should we define biblical Israel? Shaul/Paul draws some distinctions between a physical and spiritual Israel, in order to demonstrate the necessity of an individual to belong to both, to be a fully regenerated Israelite.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 2

Can we follow the instruction of Yahuwah and obey the government? All established government is based upon a theocracy, but the elohim being served is not always Yahuwah. As believers in a world that does not value righteousness, we must remain true to Yah, but we must walk a path of maturity, temperance, and self-control, empowered by the Ruach ha’Kodesh/Holy Spirit.
