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.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 12 • Part 2 –

In Rom 12 part 1 we’re admonished to present our individual bodies together as a corporate holy, living sacrifice! How can you do that if you don’t commit to joining a fellowship?

Paul now in this section of the letter (Chapter 12 &13) refocuses our attention on Yahusha; in particular the Sermon on the Mount:

PAUL  YAHUSHA 
12:14: Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. Lk. 6:28 Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
12:17: Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Matt 5:39:..do not resist an evil person.
12:18 If possible, so far as you are able, be at peace with men. Matt 5:9; Mk. 9:50: blessed are the peacemakers; be at peace with one another.
12:20 But if your enemy is hungry, feed him. Lk.6:27; Matt 5:44…love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.
12:20 Render to all what is due them; tax to whom you serve, as their due Mk.12:14 Is is lawful to pay tax to Caesar, or not?…Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to יהוה what are YHWH’s.
13:8 For he who loves neighbor has fulfilled the Torah. Matt 22:37- You shall love יהוה your Elohim, you shall love your neighbor as yourself; on these two mitzvoth hang the whole Torah and Prophets.
13:9 And if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matt 7:12 In all things, treat one another the same way as you desire to be treated, for this is the Torah and the Prophets.
13:11 Awake from sleep, for now salvation is nearer to us than when we first believed! Mk. 13:36; Lk. 21:28: In case he should suddenly come and find you asleep….your redemption is drawing nigh.
14:10 – 17; (Judging, stumbling blocks, Kingdom isn’t eating & drinking, but righteousness. Matt Ch’s 6, 7 & 18:

Romans 12:6 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;
Romans 12:7 Or, some service, let us serve: or he that teaches, let him teach;
Romans 12:8 Or, he that exhorts, let him exhort: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that oversees, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with joy.

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

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 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 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.

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 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 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.

Ephesians Hebraically – Intro

Who were the Ephesians? As we begin our study of the text, we examine the historical and cultural climates for Ephesus, as well as the nature of authorship and theme of the letter.Through spiritual maturity and an indwelling of the Ruach, we move from doctrine and reasoned argument, to doxology and prayer.
