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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
