Are you performing your act of reasonable temple service? Shaul/Paul understood that this concept not only started prior to the construction of the tabernacle or temple, but would be vital to Daniel’s prophetic vision of our future. Discover how a willful mistranslation, a Daniel deception, can reshape your eschatological views and harmonize with the whole of Scripture.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 12 • Part 1 –
Romans12:1 I beg you therefore, Yisraelite brothers, by the mercy of vuvh, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to vuvh, which is your act of reasonable temple service.
Romans12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the ongoing renewing of your mind, that you may discern what is that tov, acceptable, and even the perfect, will of vuvh.
Romans12:3 For I say, through the grace/unmerited favor given to me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he should; but to think soberly, as vuvh has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Romans12:4 For as we have many members in the one body of Yisrael, and all members have not the same role:
Romans12:5 So we, being many, are one body of Yisrael in the Moshiach, and each one members one of another.
Romans12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace/ unmerited favor that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the measure of faith;
Romans12:7 Or, some service, let us serve: or he that teaches, let him teach.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Ephesians 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
V.1 is reminiscent of the early Ebionite Nazirene disciples creed where they rejected all animal sacrifices – V.1 I beg you therefore, Yisraelite brothers, by the mercy of vuvh, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to vuvh, which is your act of reasonable temple service.
Gk: “humōn logikos latreia.” ‘It’s the logical temple service for you’. “latreia” is wrapped up in how we’re to act in worship and service in relation to Yahusha’s redemptive work at Passover Exodus 12:25, 26 – Heb ăbôdâh – עֲבֹדָה. This words genesis is prior to any manmade tabernacle or temple construction.
Epiphanius writes: The Ebionites “do not accept Moses’ Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject… stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blespheme most of the Levitical legislation” (Panarion 30.18.7-9). Epiphanius then quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites/Hebrews where Yahusha declares: “I have come to destroy the sacrifices” (Panaron 30.16.5).
In the Gospel of the Nazirenes Yeshua said, “For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie.”
Now we understand the words of Paul when he commanded the Gentiles to “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature” (Colossians 3:5 )? Or the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Romans 8:13): Which means that we must transform the beastly, carnal nature, into a fit sacrifice on the altar of our Inner Living Temple.Click here to Read More
The Daniel deception
Daniel 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. (The place of יהוהs sanctuary is Yahusha.)
Daniel 8:11 in all known English translations has translated the Hebrew word ‘Ruwm’ (Strong’s 7311) as “taken away”. This word’s meaning comes from the context of ‘rising’ or ‘raising’ and has more often than not been translated ‘exalt’ or ‘exalting’.
The word ‘Ruwm’ has been used 209 times in the Old Testament. The overwhelming support of the interpretation of this word shows us that it means ‘to rise’ or ‘exalt’. It has several times been translated “take up” or “take from” but in context has always been in a sense of ‘raising’ NOT ‘taking away’ or ‘casting away’.
Daniel uses the Hebrew word ‘Ruwm’ 13 times in his book. Of these 13 uses ALL have a context of something being raised or lifted up or exalted or being made high. So why here is it used as ‘taken away?”
What’s weird is in Daniel 8:11 in some manuscripts the word ‘Ruwm’ is used twice consecutively. The literal translation of the text would read, He was magnified before the prince of the host and the daily sacrifice was exalted, the exalted cornerstone of the holy place (the messiah) was cast down.
The exalting of a daily sacrifice of bulls or goats or of any blood other than Yahusha IS THE ABOMINATION!
This can be seen in Hebrews 9:23-10:18 very clearly. This places the prophecy of Daniel’s “midst of the week” starting with the Daily sacrifice being “called back” not being “taken away”. And herein lies the Jewish, Messianic Jewish, Hebrew Roots and Christian Zionist deception!
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days – 3 1/2 years.
The Hebrew word here for “taken away” is ‘Cuwr’ (Strong’s 5493). This word has a meaning of turning.
This translation of “taken away” appears to be in direct contrast to Daniel 8:11. This can only be reconciled by determining what is being turned from. It’s apparent from the context that they are turning from one thing to something that’s an abomination.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be called back (i.e a turning away from one realm to an abominable realm) and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days – 3 1/2 years.
Knowing that any animal or daily sacrifice is insufficient is key. The translation of the word ‘Cuwr’ means being “called back”. What this means is the Daily Sacrifice would be called back to prominence which would be turning from the true Malki Tzedik sacrifice (Yahusha) and turning to the unacceptable Levitical sacrifice (blood of bulls and goats) that the prophecy of Daniel’s “midst of the week” starts with the Daily sacrifice being “called back” not being “taken away” as Messianic’s teach!
The elevation of the blood of bulls and goats is the end time casting down the one true sacrifice(Yahusha).
Romans12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the ongoing renewing of your mind, that you may discern what is that tov, acceptable, and even the perfect, will of vuvh.
The Gospel of the Nazarenes
Know as ‘The original Gospel of the Holy Twelve’ which was published in 1870
CHAPTER 28: Yeshua Releases the Rabbits and Pigeons
28:3.”You believe that Moses indeed commanded creatures to be slain and offered in sacrifice and eaten, and so do you in the temple, but behold a greater than Moses is here, and He comes to put away the bloody sacrifice of the law, and the feasts on them, and to restore to you the pure oblation and unbloody sacrifice as in the beginning, even the grains and fruits of the earth.” (instead of “but behold a greater than Moses is here”, the 1997 translation reads: “I have come to light The Way back to The Law, even the true Law of Moses”)4.”Of that which you offer to God in purity will you eat, but of that kind which you offer not in purity will you not eat, for the hour comes when your sacrifices and feasts of blood will cease, and you will worship God with a holy worship and a pure oblation.” 5.”Let these creatures therefore go free, that they may rejoice in God and bring no guilt to man.” And the young man let them free, and Yeshua broke their cages and their bonds.
CHAPTER 49: The True Temple of God
49:3.”But the true temple is the body of man, in which God dwells by the spirit, and when this temple is destroyed, in three days, God raises up a more glorious temple, which the eye of the uncultivated man does not perceive.” (1997 translation reads: “which the eye of the natural man perceives not”) 4.Don’t you know that you are the temples of the Holy Spirit? And who so destroys one of these temples destroys himself.”5.And some of the scribes, hearing Him, sought to entangle Him in His talk and said, “If you end to the sacrifices of sheep and oxen and birds, what is the purpose of this temple built for God by Solomon, which has been now been in restoration for the last forty six years?”6.And Yeshua answered and said, “It is written in the prophets, ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations, for the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.’ But you have made it a house of slaughter and filled it with abominations.”7.”Again it is written, ‘From the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun, my name will be great among the Gentiles, and incense with a pure offering will be offered to me.’ But you have made it a desolation with your offerings of blood and used the sweet incense only to cover the ill savor thereof. I have come not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.”8.”Don’t you know what is written? Obedience is better than sacrifice and to attend what is being said is better than the fat of rams. I, the Lord, am weary of your burnt offerings, and vain oblation, your hands are full of blood.” 9.”Aren’t the true sacrifices specified in the writings? Wash and purify yourself! Take away the evil from before my eyes! Cease to do evil! Learn to do good! Do justice for the fatherless and the widows, and all those who are oppressed! In so doing you will fulfill the law.”10.The day will come when all those who are in the outer court, and that which pertaineth to blood offerings, will be taken away and pure worshippers will worship the eternal in purity and truth.”11.And they said, “Who are you to do away with the sacrifices, and to despise the seed of Abraham ? You have learned this blasphemy from the Greeks and the Egyptians.” 12.And Yeshua said, “Before Abraham was ‘I Am’ .” And they refused to listen and some said, “He is inspired by a demon.” Others said, “He is mad.” And they went their way and told these things to the priests and elders . And they were wrath, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy.
CHAPTER 71: The Cleansing of the Temple
71:1.And the Jews’ Passover was at hand, and Yeshua went up again from Bethany into Jerusalem. He found sitting, in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money. 2.And when He had made a scourge of seven cords, He drove them all out of the temple and untied the sheep and the oxen, and the doves, and poured out the changers’ money, and overturned the tables;” 3.And said to them, “Take these things hence; make not my Father’s House a House of merchandise. Is it not written, ‘My House is a House of Prayer, for all nations?’ But you have made it a den of thieves, and filled it with all manner of abominations.” 4.And He would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel of blood through the temple, or that any animals should be slain.
CHAPTER 86: Yeshua Appears in the Temple and Blood Sacrifices Cease
86:1.(This is after his resurrection) The same day, at the time of sacrifice in the temple, there appeared among the dealers in beasts and in birds, One clothed in white raiment, bright as light, and in His hand a whip of seven cords. 2.And at the sight of Him, those who sold and bought fled in terror, and some of them fell as dead men, for they remembered how before His death Yeshua had driven them away from the temple enclosure, in like manner. 3.And some declared that they had seen a spirit. And others that they had seen Him who was crucified and that He had risen from the dead. 4.And the sacrifices ceased that day in the temple, for all were in fear, and none could were willing to sell or to boy, but, rather, they let their captives go free. 5.And the priests and elders caused a report to be spread, that they who had seen it were drunken, and had seen nothing. But many affirmed that they had seen Him with their own eyes, and felt the scourge on their backs, but were powerless to resist; for when some of the bolder among them put forth their hands, they could not seize the form which they beheld, nor grasp the whip which chastised them. 6.And from that time, these believed in Yeshua, that He was sent from God, to deliver the oppressed and free those that were bound. And they turned from their ways and sinned no longer. 7.To others He also appeared in love and mercy and healed them by His touch, and delivered them from the hands of the persecutor. And many like things were reported of Him, and many said,” Of a truth the kingdom is come.” 8.And some of those who had slept and risen, when Yeshua rose from the dead appeared, and were seen by many in the holy city, and great fear fell upon the wicked, but light and gladness came to the righteous in heart.
Testament Of Levi Chapters 5, 8, 14,15 & 18.
5:1 I saw the holy temple, and upon 2 a throne of glory the Most High. And He said to me: Levi, I have given thee the blessings of the 3 priesthood until I come and sojourn in the midst of Israel……
8:13 And the 13 first portion shall be great; yea, greater than it shall none be. The second shall be in the priesthood. 14 And the third shall be called by a new name, because a king shall arise in Judah, and shall 15 establish a new priesthood, to all the Gentiles. And His presence is beloved, as a prophet of the Most High, of the seed of Abraham our father……
14:2 For our father Israel is pure from the transgressions of the chief priests [who shall lay their hands upon the Saviour of the world]14:7 And ye shall be puffed up because of your priesthood, lifting yourselves up against 8 men…..
15:1 Therefore the temple, which the Lord shall choose, shall be laid waste through your uncleanness……
18:1 the priesthood shall fail. 2 Then shall the Lord raise up a new priest……..
18:6 And From the temple of glory shall come upon him sanctification, With the Father’s voice as from Abraham to Isaac……
18:9 And in his priesthood the Gentiles shall be multiplied in knowledge.
Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace/unmerited favor given to me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he should; but to think soberly, as vuvh has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Romans 12:4 For as we have many members in the one body of Yisrael, and all members have not the same role:
Romans 12:5 So we, being many, are one body of Yisrael in the Moshiach, and each one members one of another.

“Mishilabot ishshah el echotah – and equally connected, each one to it’s sister.”
Ex 26:17 ’Tenon’ – ‘Yated’ = ‘nail’ – a nail will hold the structure of the congregation together making the whole equally connected, each one to it’s sister.

LXX and Masoretic = “nailed hand holds the whole structure together.”
Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of Elohim; :20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahusha Messiah himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together grows unto an holy temple in יהוה . In whom you also are builded together for a habitation of Elohim through the Spirit.
Hebrews 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Messiah Yahusha; 2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who ha builded the house has more honour than the house.:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is Elohim.5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;6 But Messiah as a son over his own house; whose house we are!

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 11 – Part 1
Who are the people of Yah? Shaul/Paul understood that there was a seamless priestly garment that was a covering for all of Israel. One Messiah, One Covenant, One People. Yahuwah will prune and graft in, but will always be focused on the branches of Isreal, rooted in Yahusha.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 1
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.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 8 – Part 1
Which “law” do you prefer; the “law of sin and death” or “the law of the Spirit of Life”? As there is then, now, no condemnation for those who are in Messiah, we are free to walk as Abraham did, in Royal Covenant Torah. Only through Yahusha’s blood ratification, can we return to Torah that transforms our inward man, leading us to right action.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 10
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.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 11 – Part 2
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.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 7
How can an adulteress bride return to her husband? Shaul/Paul uses his intimate knowledge of Torah to help the audience awaken to the reality of redemption through Yahusha. If we interpret the verses without a proper knowledge of Torah, we run the risk of creating a false dichotomy between law and grace.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 9 – Part 1
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.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 3
Who is the True Lawgiver, man or Yahuwah? Yahuwah’s government looks nothing like the corrupt government of men. We have responsibilities and requirements for stewarding the life that Yahuwah has blessed us with, and we will be required to answer for our decisions. The only true liberty we can ever find is in walking in Royal Covenant Torah.
Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 12 • Part 2
Have you come into the community? Despite current popular doctrines, a walk of faith is not simply “me and Jesus”. Shaul/Paul sides with Yahusha in gathering believers together for corporate unity under Messiah. Division becomes a byproduct of a person being called into the Israel of Elohim.
