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.

– Chapter 13 • Part 3 –

Romans 13:8  Owe no one anything except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the Torah.

Verse 8 tells us not to be indebted slaves, walk in love and fulfill biblical law!

V.8 Verses The Articles! 

Article 1: All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives…..(remember Achan’s house?)

Isaiah 33.22 For יהוה  is our judge, יהוה s our lawgiver, יהוה  is our king;

James 4:12 There is one lawgiver.

Either יהוה is the source of legislation which is rooted in Torah or the god “We the People” is the source of legislation which is rooted in secular humanism – a moral baby will be born!

Article 2: The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his office during the term of four years, and , together with the Vice President, chosen for the term, be elected……

A President: one who ‘presides’ over the throne!  Who’s your King? Who has executive authority?

As believers we’re to appoint not elect!

Article 3: The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme court, and in such inferior courts, as the Congress may, from time to time, ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior…..

In the bible, judicial appointees have to be men of truth who fear יהוה and hate covetousness. Not so in the Constitution, no such stipulation.

2 Chronicles 19:5  And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city,6  And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for יהוה , who is with you in the judgment.

“No one is good but …..יהוה alone!” Good behavior has to be determined by YHWH’s Torah not secular humanism.

Luke 11:52  Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 14

Do you cause fellow believers to stumble by your eating? Many have used this passage to establish unbiblical precedents. Shaul/Paul is not doing away with the dietary instructions, but rather establishes standards of building a community and whats causes harm to that community. We are command to exhibit faithfulness with our approach to our food, so not as to condemn ourselves with what we allow.

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 – “All about the Ruach/Spirit”

The Holy Spirit herself doth testify? We take a pause in our study of Romans to reflect on verses 16 and 17 in the eighth chapter to focus specifically on the Ruach Ha Kodesh/Holy Spirit. Join us as we test the traditional understandings of the nature of the Ruach/Spirit against the whole of Scripture and the truth of the text.

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.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 16

What is a woman’s role in the church? Many teach that the Scriptures endorse a silent and subservient while the men lead. As the letter to the Romans closes, Shaul/Paul’s final greetings reveal a marvelous hermeneutic truth: leadership in the home and in the congregation is appointed by Yahuwah and His annointing does not recognize gender preference.

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 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.

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.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 15

Who has been elevated to the priesthood? Shaul/Paul harkens back to language and themes used in Yeshayahu/Isaiah to show that establish the completion of prophecy through Yahusha. Shaul/Paul not only demonstrates that  through Messianic Reformation, the Melchizedek Priesthood was established and the fullness of the Gentiles has come in to serve Yahuwah.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 8 – Part 3

What is it that Yahusha has come to redeem? Creation is groaning and Yahuwah intends to wholly reverse the impact of sin. Shaul/Paul understood that there was a threefold linguistic pattern between the words: “blood,” “ground,” and “thorns” that has existed since Berishith/The Beginning.
