Recently I saw a statement made that Torah-positive ministries are only focused on following the commandments of God and never talk about Yeshua. This is not the first time I have read or heard such an allegation against pronomian views. While somewhat rare, it is something that people with a misconception or narrow view of the ministry and movement to lead people to Torah-obedience is all about.


In a similar manner, I have been directly accused by some people—who apparently have only looked at a fraction of what I teach or placed an exorbitant amount of focus on teachings that made them uneasy—of, “never leading people to Yeshua, The Messiah.” This is particularly absurd, as I have the archives of my written works setup in such a way that the first articles listed are those directly related to the life and ministry of Yeshua accompanied by a note saying that all of the teachings I have provided are for the primary purpose of leading people to Yeshua—but, the real Yeshua, not the false “Jesus” of “Christianity”.


You see, The Bible warns us of false messiahs and a counterfeit “Jesus” that will be raised up, especially as we approach the last days. Consider these passages:


For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and show great signs and wonders so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen.

—Matthew 24:24 (TLV)


For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and show signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, the chosen.

—Mark 13:22 (TLV)


For if someone comes and proclaims another Yeshua whom we did not proclaim, or if you receive a different spirit that you did not receive, or a different “good news” that you did not accept, you put up with that well enough!

—2 Corinthians 11:4 (TLV)


If The Bible tells us that there will be false messiahs and a counterfeit concept of Yeshua in the last days, then it begs a very important question to be asked: How can we identify the real Messiah?


There is a poetic line of unknown origin I came across some time ago: How odd of God to choose the Jew, but not so odd as those who choose the Jewish God and hate the Jew. While this was probably referring to Jewish people and “Christian” anti-Semitism, I can’t help but read this line and sometimes see “the Jew” as a reference to Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah. Yeshua was, after all, a Jewish Rabbi who lived by The Torah of God and consistently told His followers to do the same—He was not a “Christian pastor” telling everyone they no longer had to follow the commandments of God given in The Torah. Consider what Jacques Baldet says in his book Jesus The Rabbi Prophet: A New Light On The Gospel Message:


To understand Jesus’ message, we must first understand the religion in which he was educated. As we shall see when we discuss his mission, the available sources clearly demonstrate that Jesus had no intentions of founding a new religion, nor a new church. For him, what the Jews customarily called “the Law and the Prophets”—or the teachings of the Torah—was the foundation of his relationship to God. His concern, often found in the sayings of the gospels, was to bring the “strayed sheep,” or the “sheep without a shepherd,” back into the way of the Torah.


The real Messiah of The Bible, the Jewish Rabbi named Yeshua, is hated by the masses that follow their make-believe “Jesus” today. The moment you suggest following the biblical Torah-keeping Yeshua is the moment you will get harsh resistance from those who have been taught that “Jesus” overturned at least some of the commandments and established a new religion, when in reality He was merely establishing the new covenant, where the same Torah given to Moses would be put into the mind and written on the heart of His true followers (Jeremiah 31:32, Hebrews 8:10) and then they would be filled with God’s Spirit that would cause them to walk in God’s Law, The Torah (Ezekiel 36:26-27). Oddly enough, this is a truth that most “Christians” hate.


In this message I want to take a look at a few things The Bible tells us that will help identify the real, biblical Yeshua from all of the false ideas created through the “Jesus” of “Christianity”. While there are many areas in Scripture to which we can turn in seeking to identify the real from the fake, I think there are a few places that build an essential foundation to identifying Him that, upon a logical review in comparison with popular “Christian” theology regarding these passages, will show with great clarity who The Messiah is and how the “Jesus” of popular religion is a counterfeit and likely even a direct manifestation of Satan.


The Prophesied Messiah


One of the most important places in The Bible for seeking to identify the real Messiah is through the Messianic prophecies given in the writings of The Prophets. In these portions of Scripture we find such things as the virgin birth, Isaiah’s suffering servant, Messiah riding on a donkey, and many other important clues to who the real Messiah is. But these passages are only half of the story when it comes to identifying the real Messiah through these prophetic utterances.


Christianity” has long referred to these passages as the “proof” that their “Jesus” is The Messiah. And while the real Messiah is certainly the one who fulfilled all of these prophecies, the false messiahs and counterfeit “Jesus” of popular religion also claim to be the one described in all of these passages. After all, a good counterfeit is always the one made to be perceived through outward appearance as the real thing. So let’s take a look at some of the most recognized of the many Messianic prophecies and through them we will observe one other often overlooked element common to all of these. From there we will begin to find the real Messiah.


Isaiah’s Messiah


As mentioned, two of the major prophecies related to identifying Yeshua as the real Messiah come from the Book of Isaiah. These are the virgin birth and suffering servant passages. Let’s take a look at each of these in turn.


Therefore Adonai Himself will give you a sign:

Behold, the virgin will conceive. When she is giving birth to a son, she will call his name Immanuel. He will be eating curds and honey by the time he knows to refuse evil and choose good.

—Isaiah 7:14-15 (TLV)


Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by Adonai through the prophet, saying, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and give birth to a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which means “God with us.”

—Matthew 1:22-23 (TLV)


While there is some debate about Isaiah’s prophecy from Jewish counter-missionaries—who believe they are called to lead people to a rejection of Yeshua as Messiah—it is very clear from Matthew’s Gospel that the view of the apostles and earliest Believers is that this was a prophecy about and fulfilled by Yeshua. As such, I will be proceeding from this view as well.


‘Who has believed our report? To whom is the arm of Adonai revealed? For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, like a root out of dry ground. He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him, nor beauty that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief, One from whom people hide their faces. He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our pains. Yet we esteemed Him stricken, struck by God, and afflicted. But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities. The chastisement for our shalom was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

We all like sheep have gone astray. Each of us turned to his own way. So Adonai has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted yet He did not open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter, like a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He did not open His mouth. Because of oppression and judgment He was taken away. As for His generation, who considered? For He was cut off from the land of the living, for the transgression of my people— the stroke was theirs His grave was given with the wicked, and by a rich man in His death, though He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

Yet it pleased Adonai to bruise Him. He caused Him to suffer. If He makes His soul a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the will of Adonai will succeed by His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul He will see it and be satisfied by His knowledge. The Righteous One, My Servant will make many righteous and He will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give Him a portion with the great, and He will divide the spoil with the mighty— because He poured out His soul to death, and was counted with transgressors. For He bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.

—Isaiah 53:1-12 (TLV)


This passage is widely regarded as a description of the suffering endured by Messiah, particularly in the events immediately leading to the crucifixion. In fact, due to how much this passage is associated with these events and how detailed it is in describing them, many followers of Orthodox Judaism are known to completely ignore this section of Isaiah and will not even read it in their synagogues. As such, it seems clear that Isaiah’s Messiah, at the very least, was born of a virgin and suffered for our iniquities exactly as Yeshua is described in the Gospels.


Jeremiah’s Messiah


Like Isaiah, Jeremiah gives a brief description of the coming Messiah: “But I was like a gentle lamb led to slaughter. I did not know they had devised plots against me: ‘Let us destroy the tree with its fruit. Let us cut him off from the land of the living, so that his name will be no more remembered’” (Jeremiah 11:19). In addition to this, the prophet also tells us that the real Messiah will be of the lineage of David, the second king of Israel.


“Behold, days are coming” —it is a declaration of Adonai “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and He will reign as king wisely, and execute justice and righteousness in the land. In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell in safely; and this is His Name by which He will be called: Adonai our righteousness.

—Jeremiah 23:5-6 (TLV)


Luke 1:32 says: “He will be great and will be called Ben-Elyon. Adonai Elohim will give Him the throne of David, His father.” Again, we have one of the major prophecies regarding the real Messiah found recorded in the Gospel record. Yeshua is of the lineage of David.


Ezekiel’s Messiah


Like Jeremiah, the prophet Ezekiel also refers to the coming Messiah as being of the lineage of David. But this time the prophecy introduces us to The Messiah as a shepherd to His people.


I will save My flock. They will no longer be prey. I will judge between sheep and sheep. So I will set up One Shepherd over them, My servant David—He will tend them, He will feed them Himself and be their shepherd.

—Ezekiel 34:22-23 (TLV)


Clearly this is a very important prophecy to “Christianity” as often as Yeshua is referred to as The Good Shepherd.


Zechariah’s Messiah


We’ll look at just one more. This one will be familiar to most “Christians” as it is often a subject of their “Palm Sunday” rituals where many churchgoers traditionally wave palm leaves in what they believe to be a reenactment of sorts of the events described in Matthew 21 and John 12. It might not be a good idea to point out that Matthew 21:8 says they also spread their clothes on the path before Yeshua, some churches these days would take that a bit too literal. Let’s take a look at what the prophet said, which was fulfilled in these Gospel passages.


Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you, a righteous one bringing salvation. He is lowly, riding on a donkey— on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

—Zechariah 9:9 (TLV)


So, we have now looked at four of the biblical prophets and several of the most important and often referenced Messianic prophecies about Yeshua. To the modern-day “Christian” it is these prophecies alone that prove their “Jesus” is the real Messiah. But there is an important piece of the equation missing at this point, without which the “Jesus” of modern-day popular “Christianity” is nothing more than a false messiah.


The Prophets And The Torah


I want to turn our attention to some important statements made by these same four prophets regarding the continued application of The Torah in the new covenant, by the followers of Yeshua. For the most part, “Christians” today are taught that they no longer have to follow at least some parts of The Torah. But this belief becomes problematic when we look at what the very same prophets who foretold so accurately characteristics of the real Messiah said about The Torah.


It will come to pass in the last days that the mountain of Adonai’s House will stand firm as head of the mountains and will be exalted above the hills. So all nations will flow to it. Then many peoples will go and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Adonai, to the House of the God of Jacob! Then He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths.” For Torah will go forth from Zion and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem.

—Isaiah 2:2-3 (TLV)


For they have rejected the Torah of Adonai–Tzva’ot, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

—Isaiah 5:24b (TLV)


To Torah and to the testimony!

If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no light.

—Isaiah 8:20 (TLV)


The land is polluted by its inhabitants, for they have transgressed Torah, violated statutes, and broken the everlasting covenant.

—Isaiah 24:5 (TLV)


For this is a rebellious people, lying children, children unwilling to obey the Torah of Adonai.

—Isaiah 30:9 (TLV)


These are some pretty strong words from Isaiah, the same person who gave us the prophecies about the virgin birth and the suffering servant. According to this man The Torah will go forth out of Zion, but people will reject it because they have no light in them, which will cause the world to be polluted, as they are a rebellious people, liars, not willing to obey The Torah. Also worth mentioning, Micah 4:1-4 shared words similar to Isaiah 2:2-3 about The Torah going forth out of Zion and the Word of God out of Jerusalem at the end of days.


But the prophet was not finished yet. Consider these things, very specific to some of the portions of The Torah most rejected by “Christians” today.


These people provoke Me continually to My face, sacrificing in gardens, burning incense on bricks, sitting among graves, spending the night in cave-tombs; eating swine’s flesh, and the broth of detestable things is in their pots, who say, ‘Keep to yourself, don’t come to me, for I am holier than you!’ These are smoke in My nostrils, a fire that burns all day.

—Isaiah 65:3-5 (TLV)


Those who consecrate and purify themselves to enter the groves, following after one in the midst, who eat swine’s flesh, vermin and mice, will come to an end altogether.

—Isaiah 66:17 (TLV)


“And it will come to pass, that from one New Moon to another, and from one Shabbat to another, all flesh will come to bow down before Me,” says Adonai.

—Isaiah 66:23 (TLV)


These statements tell us that those who eat unclean things are a smoke in the nostrils of God and they will be brought to an end (annihilated) upon the return of The Messiah and that the biblical Sabbath Day will be kept during the Millennium where Yeshua will reign on earth for a thousand years. These statements tell us that even these specific portions of The Torah continue to be mandated in the new covenant. Now let’s look at what Jeremiah had to say about the continued application of The Torah in the new covenant.


Hear, O earth! See, I will bring disaster on this people —fruit of their schemes— for they did not listen to My words and rejected My Torah.

—Jeremiah 6:19 (TLV)


Then you will say to them, thus says Adonai: “If you will not listen to Me, by walking in My Torah, which I have set before you, and by listening to the words of My servants the prophets, whom I have been sending to you, early and often—but you have not listened—then I will make this House like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.”

—Jeremiah 26:4-6 (TLV)


“Behold, days are coming” —it is a declaration of Adonai “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. For they broke My covenant, though I was a husband to them.” it is a declaration of Adonai. “But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days” —it is a declaration of Adonai “I will put My Torah within them. Yes, I will write it on their heart. I will be their God and they will be My people.

—Jeremiah 31:30-32 (TLV)


These statements continue to show the ongoing new covenant mandate to live by The Torah. However, focus in on the last passage I gave. According to this prophet the sign and seal of the new covenant will be God putting The Torah into the mind and writing it on the heart of the covenant Believer. That which is in your mind will consume your thoughts and drive you to study it. That which is on your heart will fill you with a passion and drive to do it. So, according to the prophet who told us that the real Messiah would come from the lineage of David that same real Messiah would initiate a new covenant where The Torah of God would be put into the mind and written on the heart of the covenant Believer. Hebrews 8 plainly tells us, directly quoting Jeremiah, that the new covenant we are in through faith in Yeshua is this exact covenant described by the prophet. Let’s continue with Ezekiel.


There is a conspiracy of her prophets in her midst, like a roaring lion tearing prey. They have devoured lives, they take wealth and valuables, they multiply widows in her midst. Her kohanim have done violence to My Torah and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, nor have they taught the difference between the unclean and the clean. They shut their eyes to My Shabbatot. So I am profaned among them.

—Ezekiel 22:25-26 (TLV)


Let me just pause here for a moment, because apart from Matthew 7:21-23 this might be the most accurate depiction of “Christian” religion in the entire Bible. When you look at popular “Christianity” today, especially trending forms like prosperity gospel, megachurches, and other progressive forms of the religion, it’s as if they took this passage and made it their blueprint for ministry.


They do devour lives for wealth and valuables, especially when they present very twisted and distorted views on tithing and offerings. They don’t just multiply widows, but they take advantage of them. I have even observed one major television network have the audacity to create a program where people, upon their death, can leave their whole inheritance to the “ministry”—as opposed to providing for their family. They don’t make a distinction between the clean and unclean—they tell you that you no longer have to follow the food laws and hold all manner of events where swine flesh and other unclean things are on the menu. They do not keep The Sabbath. The whole of the “Christian” religion seems to be set toward doing violence to The Torah of God.


Moreover I will give you a new heart. I will put a new spirit within you. I will remove the stony heart from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Ruach within you. Then I will cause you to walk in My laws, so you will keep My rulings and do them.

—Ezekiel 36:26-27 (TLV)


Like Jeremiah’s description of the sign and seal of the new covenant, this too is a new covenant prophecy. It tells us that upon entering this new covenant God will give us a new heart and a new spirit. This parallels with The Torah put onto the heart and into the mind of the new covenant Believer as described by Jeremiah. Then the prophet tells us that the evidence of being filled with The Spirit of God is not speaking in other tongues, as popular Pentecostal theology often says, but rather is that the Believer will be CAUSED to walk in God’s Laws—The Torah. In other words, the truly Spirit-filled new covenant Believer will be caused to follow the Leviticus 11 food laws, caused to keep the biblical Sabbath, caused to celebrate the Feast Days, caused to not wear wool and linen together, caused to not want to tattoo their flesh, caused to reject pagan holidays like Christmas, Easter, and Halloween, and caused live by The Torah of their God.


“In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you will have the Passover, a feast of seven days when matzah will be eaten. On that day the prince will prepare a bull as a sin offering for himself and for all the people of the land. He will prepare a burnt offering to Adonai for the seven days of the feast—seven bulls and seven rams without blemish daily for seven days and a male goat daily for a sin offering. He will prepare as a grain offering, an ephah for a bull, an ephah for a ram and a hin of oil for each ephah. He will do this in the seventh month, on the fifteenth day of the month, during the Feast, for seven days, for sin offering as well as burnt offering, grain offering as well as oil.”

—Ezekiel 45:21-25 (TLV)


Here we find another reference to the Millennium, this time as part of the prophet’s lengthy depiction of the future and final Temple. This is clearly a description of both the spring Passover Feast Season and the fall Tabernacles Feast Season. It tells us that these Feasts will be kept in the Millennium. Incidentally, in 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 the apostle Paul admonishes new covenant Believers to keep the Feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread, for Yeshua, our Passover Lamb. And this brings us to the fourth prophet we have looked at, Zechariah, and what he tells us about the continued new covenant application of The Torah.


Then all the survivors from all the nations that attacked Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, Adonai-Tzva’ot, and to celebrate Sukkot. Furthermore, if any of the nations on earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Adonai-Tzva’ot, they will have no rain. If the Egyptians do not go up and celebrate, they will have no rain. Instead, there will be the plague that Adonai will inflict on the nations that do not go up to celebrate Sukkot. This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate Sukkot.

—Zechariah 14:16-19 (TLV)


Once again, with a specific focus on The Feast of Tabernacles, we see that there will be a mandate to keep the Feasts in the Millennium. This time it comes with strong words—a punishment of no rain on the land should anyone refuse to keep this specific one. It would seem that God was very serious about the continued application of The Torah, especially the Feasts and the food laws, when He is saying that He will annihilate those who eat unclean things when Messiah returns and will withhold rain for crops to those who might dare refuse to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot in the Millennium.


At this point a question is warranted: How can you defer to the prophets in reference to foretold descriptions of the coming Messiah while rejecting these very same prophets in regard to what they said about the continued application of The Torah in the new covenant?


It’s simply illogical to believe that the prophets were so accurate regarding details about the coming Messiah and so wrong about the continued significance and mandate to live according to The Torah. And yet that’s exactly what the most popular views today would ask us to believe.


The plain fact is that the masses of “Christianity” are deceived. There is simply no other way to put it, unless I refer to the apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 and call them delusional. I realize that this is harsh, but we must not forget that the real Messiah called the deceived religious leaders of His day: hypocrites, brood of vipers, and whitewashed tombs filled with dead men’s bones. I saw a comical Internet MEME going around that said: If the apostle Paul were alive today we’d be getting a letter. But if Yeshua were on earth in the flesh today He’d be visiting most churches to flip tables and chase people with a whip while scolding them. After all, that’s literally what He did in the Jerusalem Temple, and modern “Christianity” is far more blasphemous than anything they were doing on that day.


Yeshua Taught Torah-Keeping


Due to the prophets saying such things as The Torah will go forth out of Zion, as well as their overall insistence that true biblical faith involves living by The Torah, we know that the real Messiah would be The Righteous One who teaches His followers to live by The Torah. It would be impossible for Yeshua to be the real Messiah had He not upheld The Torah of His Father.


I cannot say it enough. In The Bible there is a lawless one (2 Thessalonians 2:8-9) and a Righteous One (Isaiah 53:11). The lawless one is Satan and the Righteous One is Yeshua. Lawlessness (or sin) is defined in 1 John 3:4 as breaking The Torah, going against The Torah. Righteousness is defined in Deuteronomy 6:25 as obeying The Torah, living by The Torah. The very first thing we see Satan telling people in Genesis 3 is that they do not have to obey the commandment of God (Genesis 3:1, 4-5).


Because Satan is the lawless one the only thing he cannot do is lead people in full obedience to God’s Law. Satan can create imitations of the blessings of God, he can replicate divine healing, and he can manifest the appearance of people speaking in tongues—I have witnessed Hindus engaged in their rituals that appear identical to Pentecostals engaged in heavy worship and speaking in tongues. Everything “Christians” do are things that Satan has the ability to mimic. The only thing the lawless one cannot counterfeit is Torah-obedience—he is the lawless one, it is impossible for him to lead people to follow The Torah. So the only way we can recognize the real Messiah, The Righteous One, is where The Torah is upheld, because only where God’s Law is fully promoted is where the lawless one is absent. And in all of the churches where Torah is rejected, whether in whole or in part, the “Jesus” they worship is a false messiah, “another Jesus”.


In contrast to Satan, the lawless one, let’s begin to examine what Yeshua, The Righteous One and the real Messiah, taught regarding the continued application of The Torah in the lives of those who truly follow Him and His ways. Let’s examine the Torah-positive teachings of the real Messiah.


“Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill.”

—Matthew 5:17 (TLV)


This is an often-misunderstood passage, which many use to claim that Yeshua’s work on the cross ultimately ended the need to follow The Torah. There are two key words in this verse: abolish and fulfill. It is clear from the wording of the passage that they cannot mean the same thing. Let’s examine them.


Abolish – Greek καταλύω (kataluó) – It means: destroy, overthrow, tear down, unyoke, unharness.


Fulfill – Greek πληρόω (pléroó) – It means: accomplish, amply supplied, complete, fully carry, fully preach/teach.


In other words, πληρόω (pléroó) is sort of like when you order an item from a catalogue and receive it in the mail, upon receipt of the item the order is fulfilled, now allowing you to use and enjoy the item you ordered. So, knowing this, we can read the verse this way for a more proper understanding:


Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to destroy them, overthrow them, unyoke them, or tear them down, but rather to accomplish them through you, supply them to you, complete them in your presence as an example, fully carry you in them, and fully preach and teach the Torah and Prophets to you.


Another way to understand fulfill would be to break it into the two words that are used in creating the English word “fulfill“, which are: FILL FULL. So, we could render the verse…


Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to abolish, but to FILL YOU FULL [of The Torah and Prophets].


We can also look at how this verse is rendered in Hebrew. Now, there is a lot of controversy over whether or not anything in the Apostolic Writings, which would include the Gospels, was originally written in Hebrew. There are good theories that at least some of these works were originally written in Hebrew based on the literary style. There is even testimony in some early writings around the second and third centuries that at least some portions of the “New Testament” were originally written in Hebrew, but there is not hard evidence—such as an original manuscript. There are, however, ancient copies of the “New Testament” canonical books in Hebrew—whether copied from originals or translated from Greek manuscripts we cannot be sure—which offers a valid point of reference. Based on one Hebrew copy of Matthew’s Gospel I looked at, this is how the passage translates:


Think not that I have come {to overturn The Torah} to cause The Torah or the prophets to cease. I have not come to make [them] cease, but to fill [them] up {I have not come to overturn, but to complete}.


This further shows that this passage in no way is meant to be taken the way “Christians” tend to view it, but that it is in perfect harmony with Hebrew thought regarding The Torah. Yeshua did not come to make void The Torah. He came to bring The Torah to its fullness and then fill His followers with it—just as the prophet Jeremiah declared would happen in the new covenant where The Torah fills the heart and mind of the Believer, causing the true covenant Believer to become consumed with Torah study and Torah living.


Lastly, there is a third key in understanding this passage, and that is through knowing an old Hebrew idiom that is perfectly in harmony with what is shared above and finishes our clarification of this statement. In Hebrew the words “abolish, destroy” were used in this context as a slang for wrongly interpreting The Torah and “fulfill” for correctly interpreting The Torah. So, we could then render the passage this way:


Do not think that I came to misinterpret the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to misinterpret, but to correctly interpret [The Torah and Prophets].


Now let’s put all three approaches together in one final lengthy rendering of this verse to get a better understanding of it…


Do not think that I came to misinterpret the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to destroy them, overthrow them, unyoke them, or tear them down, but rather to correctly interpret The Torah and Prophets by accomplishing them through you, supplying them to you, completing them in your presence as an example, fully carry you in them, and fully preach and teach The Torah and Prophets to you—to fill you full of The Father’s Torah in your heart and mind causing you to study and live by The Torah [just as was prophesied by Jeremiah and Ezekiel would happen].


It is important for us to understand that Yeshua plainly taught in favor of keeping and living by The Torah. John 14:15 could not be more clear: “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” And if there is any question regarding whether or not Yeshua was referring to the Torah commandments here, this statement originated in The Torah, directly referring to the “613” commandments within The Torah (Exodus 20:3-6, Deuteronomy 5:8-10, 7:9-11, 11:1, 19:8-9, 30:16). In total, a version of this phrase is used 18 times in The Bible and obeying the commandments is the only thing ever associated with loving God in the entire Bible. In other words, the only way you can love God and love Yeshua biblically is through living according to The Torah, and since the opposite of love is hate it stands to reason that no matter how passionately you pray, read The Bible, and worship if you do not live in obedience to The Torah all God sees is another religious person who professes Him with their lips but their heart if far from Him (Isaiah 29:13, Ezekiel 33:31, Matthew 15:7–9), a person who hates Him.


Let’s continue by looking at the next verse from this same passage in Matthew 5.


Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass.

—Matthew 5:18 (TLV)


Has heaven and earth passed away yet? Clearly not! The Bible tells us when this will happen. Revelation 21:1 records the event of heaven and earth passing away and a new heaven and earth coming into being. It is an event that will happen after all future “end times” events take place, whatever they may be and in whatever order they may occur. So, whether or not you believe in a rapture, and whether or not you believe it will occur before, during, or after a tribulation, and whether or not you believe Messiah is coming for the first or the second time, and whether or not you believe in a thousand year Shabbat period where He will rule and reign, and whatever you think “Mystery Babylon” is, and whatever other “end-time events” you may theorize will happen, the passing away of heaven and earth will occur after all of them. That means that The Torah has NOT passed away.


Just look at the Second Coming of Messiah and the millennium in the still-to-come future. People will be expected to keep the Leviticus 11 food laws (Isaiah 66:17, Revelation 18:2), keep the biblical seventh-day Sabbath (Isaiah 66:23), and celebrate all the biblical Holy Days like the Spring Passover Season and the Fall Tabernacles Season (Ezekiel 45:21, Zechariah 14:16-19). Everyone who took part in writing The Bible followed these things—including the apostles who wrote the “New Testament” letters. Yeshua, our Messiah, kept all of these and we are to “walk as He walked” (1 John 2:6).


Christians” seem to think they live in some magic window of time where, despite the fact that everyone during the time The Bible was being written followed The Torah and everyone in the coming millennium will be expected to live by these same rules of God’s Eternal Kingdom, these same “Christians” believe they do not have to follow the rules. Can anyone make good sense of this, other than this is the exact same deception that happened in Eden, just on a much larger scale? It could not be more clear that the “Christian” religion today, for the most part, is the greatest accomplishment of the deception started by Satan in Genesis 3:1-5.


The passage goes on, in Matthew 5, to talk about how those who obey and teach The Torah will be greatest in God’s Kingdom and how those who reject and tell others to reject The Torah will be least. I will remind you, as well, being least still requires admittance, and there are those sins [Torah violations according to 1 John 3:4] that lead to death (1 John 5:17) and at least some things that end with a place in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8)—and that passage about those who have a place in the lake of fire includes “the abominable, the detestable”, a term associated with eating what is unclean according to Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14 more than anything else it is connected to in the whole of Scripture—do a study on everything called an abomination in The Bible. Consider this:


“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, and drive out demons in Your name, and perform many miracles in Your name?’ Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’”

—Matthew 7:21-23 (TLV, emphasis added)


This is a tough statement, as it describes a group of people that can only be called “Christians“—those who claim to work miracles and prophecy in the name of Yeshua but do not live by the same Torah that Yeshua kept. There are people who perform miracles and speak prophecies in the names of other gods, but that is not who He is talking about here. He is talking about people who claim to be part of His Kingdom, but will be rejected because of lawlessness.


As I noted in more detail in my article Lawlessness, this word is a direct reference to people who do not obey The Torah. The people described in Matthew 7:21-23 are professing “Christians” who boast about all of their religious accolades but do not obey The Torah that are going to be met with this fate. And then there is 1 Peter 4:17 that says: “For the time has come for judgment to begin with the house of God. If judgment begins with us first, what will be the end for those who disobey the Good News of God?” Let’s continue on with what Yeshua said about Torah-keeping as His follower.


“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Torah?

And He said to him, “‘You shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire Torah and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

—Matthew 22:36-40 (TLV)


This is another passage that seems to be very clear, yet so much of the time it is interpreted as a “short list” of the only two commandments one need keep. But the fact of the matter, as I have covered in other messages, is that the focus of this passage is that we are to obey The Torah. The “love God” and “love your neighbor” commandments are likened to two nails put into a wall to hang a piece of art from or the hinges upon which a door hangs from. The Torah and Prophets are that piece of art or that door. The “love God, love your neighbor” commandments are great because they work in the background while the main focus is on the rest of The Torah. To place the focus on the nails or the hinges would require you to remove the art or the door, exposing what is meant to be hidden in the background. This is what “Christianity” does when they talk a lot about loving God and loving people while deeming the commandments void—they are placing the focus on the wrong thing.


It’s interesting, you know. I am talking about the real Messiah in this message, and many who have already come to an expression of “Christian” faith that keeps The Torah recognize that Yeshua is The Living Torah. He was hung on that cross, or tree if you prefer, with nails. One of those nails pierced His right wrist [Love God] and one his left wrist [Love People]. Something to think about when people want to say The Torah was “nailed to the cross” (which isn’t even what that phrase is talking about, it was the charges of your sin [Torah-breaking] against you that gets nailed to the cross when you enter into the covenant, not God’s Law). He was and is The Living Torah, and He rose again so that you can be filled full of His Torah—in your mind and on your heart, according to the new covenant. Let’s examine another passage:


For if you were believing Moses, you would believe Me—because he wrote about Me.

—John 5:46 (TLV)


Here we see Yeshua telling us that Moses wrote about Him. Well, Moses wrote The Torah, and that is the only thing in Scripture written by Moses and the only thing we know Moses wrote. Often the name of Moses is used as a reference to The Torah itself, as is the case here. So, we know that this passage is saying that The Torah is essential to knowing the real Messiah.


It might not be a popular thing to say, but people who do not live according to The Torah do not know or follow the real, biblical Yeshua. They may follow some cultural “Jesus”, but they do not know or follow the real Messiah Yeshua that is described in The Bible. Let’s look at one more thing before moving on in this study.


And when the days of their purification were fulfilled, according to the Torah of Moses, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present to Adonai. As it is written in the Torah of Adonai, “Every firstborn male that opens the womb shall be called holy to Adonai.” So they offered a sacrifice according to what was said in the Torah of Adonai: “a pair of turtle doves, or two young pigeons.”

—Luke 2:22-24 (TLV)


This is an interesting passage. It shows an event early in the life of Yeshua, just days after He was born. His parents presented Him at the Temple and gave the appropriate offerings, because The Torah declares that every firstborn male is to be called holy before God. It’s funny, you know. I read things like this and I just can’t figure out how “Christians” can be so radically opposed to The Torah message. Through those two people chosen to parent Him, God ensured that from the moment of His birth the real Messiah would be keeping The Torah.


Knowing The Messiah Through The Torah


They set a day to meet Paul and came to him at his quarters in large numbers. From morning until evening he was explaining everything to them, testifying about the kingdom of God and trying to persuade them about Yeshua from both the Torah of Moses and the Prophets.

—Acts 28:23 (TLV)


Isn’t it interesting that the same thing “Christianity” claims Paul taught against and deemed abolished is the very thing that Paul used to teach people how to know the real Messiah? This is a point that anti-Torah people simply cannot get around, because it is here we have a clear statement that the true, biblical Yeshua is found through The Torah.


You see, as I already mentioned and often say, Yeshua is The Righteous One and Satan is the lawless one. Since righteousness is defined in The Bible as obeying The Torah (see Deuteronomy 6:25 and Romans 2:13) and lawlessness is defined as breaking, violating, transgressing The Torah (see 1 Samuel 15:24 and 1 John 3:4) it really should not be difficult to figure out which one is leading the majority of “Christians” who say they do not need to obey at least some parts of God’s Law, The Torah. So the only way to know the real Messiah from any and all false messiahs and “another Jesus” is through The Torah, because the only thing Satan, the lawless one, cannot imitate through any concocted false messiah and “other Jesus” is a Messiah that fully follows The Torah and leads His people to do likewise.


Just a moment ago we looked at John 5:46, talking about how Moses wrote about Yeshua, indicating that you need The Torah in order to know who Yeshua really is. This is because Yeshua is The Righteous One, the one who lives by The Torah and leads His people to do the same, while Satan is the lawless one who leads people to think it’s OK to break, violate, transgress The Torah. This is why Paul was using The Torah, along with the Prophets, to declare that Yeshua was The Messiah. Only through showing that Yeshua, as The Righteous One, kept The Torah and led His followers to do the same could He be the real Messiah. It simply is not enough for Him to be born of a virgin, ride a donkey, or anything else the Prophets said He would do. He also had to be The Righteous One and the only way to do that is to live according to The Torah and lead His followers into His Torah lifestyle.


Popular “Christian” beliefs say that Paul taught that it is no longer required to follow the commandments of God. The irony in this is that the matter was already addressed and settled in Scripture. First, the apostle Peter said that some of the things Paul taught were hard for some people to understand and that “ignorant and unstable” lawless men twisted his words to support their lawless (anti-Torah) agendas (see 2 Peter 3:15-17). But Paul also refuted these claims himself.


In Acts chapters 21 through 23 we find a record of Paul being arrested in Jerusalem and charged with the crime of teaching that people no longer have to follow The Torah. Paul refuted these charges and while defending himself summed up his defense in Acts 24:14, where he said, “But this I confess to you, that according to the Way (which they call a sect), I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything written in the Torah and the Prophets,” and Acts 25:8, “I have committed no offense against the Torah of the Jewish people, or against the Temple, or against Caesar.”


Paul did not teach that there is no longer a mandate to live by The Torah, as “Christians” believe. Paul lived by and taught obedience to The Torah because that is the only way he could declare Yeshua is the real Messiah. And it is the only way we today can declare that Yeshua is the real Messiah. Because the real Messiah is The Righteous One—the one who fills us in our heart and mind with The Torah and causes us to walk in it.


Paul knew that there are only two things in Scripture referred to as the way, truth, and life: Yeshua the real Messiah (John 14:6) and The Torah (Psalm 119:1, 142, 153-154). He knew that the only way to proclaim that Yeshua is the real Messiah is to show that He is The Torah made flesh and He is the one who would uphold The Torah in the face of both a godless world and a corrupt religious system. Consider these words of the late David Stern from his book Restoring The Jewishness Of The Gospel: A Message For Christians:


“The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” Yeshua said, “I am ... the truth,” and he identifies with Israel. A believer in the Gospel acquires truth by identifying with Yeshua. But if so, he too, whether Jewish or Gentile, must identify with the Jewish people, with whom Yeshua identifies. Otherwise he has not identified with Yeshua. That's the truth! “[Y]e shall know the truth”—Yeshua, who identifies with the Jewish people “and the truth shall make you free.”


Do You Love Him?


If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

—John 14:15 (TLV)


He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me. He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.

—John 14:21 (TLV)


We know that we love God’s children by this—when we love God and obey His commandments. For this is the love of God—that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.

—1 John 5:2-3 (TLV)


I dare you to show you love the real Messiah by obeying the commandments of God—even those less popular ones like the Leviticus 11 food laws, The Sabbath Day, and God’s Feast Days. You know, the accusations of legalism crumble when you obey The Bible because you love Him—the religious antinomians of popular “Christianity” cannot call legalism what is done as an act of love. Do you love Yeshua enough to stop eating things like pork and shellfish? Do you love Yeshua enough to stop celebrating holidays like Christmas and Easter and instead celebrate the Holy Days that He kept?


Let’s take it a step further. The Torah says not to wear wool and linen together (Leviticus 19:19, Deuteronomy 22:11). Do you love Him enough to check fabric labels to avoid this mixture? Most of the time, unless otherwise marked, gelatin is made from pork. Do you love Him enough to not consume anything with gelatin, unless it is clearly marked as gelatin made from a clean animal or kosher? The Bible says that our body is God’s Temple. Do you love Him enough to not eat any unnatural and toxic “food additives” that might harm His Temple? I know people, “Christians”, who will spend a lot of money on their outward appearance but they eat all sorts of fast food and unclean things, having no regard for what the things they eat do to the inside of their body. While it’s also important that you love God enough to use hygiene products made from natural things and free from toxins like parabens and aluminum, The Bible also speaks against vanity and Yeshua said that if we clean the inside then the outside will also be clean.


Do you love Him enough to not buy coffee from a business that displays a pagan goddess on their products and endorses every abominable lifestyle that goes against The Word of God? You know, a lot of “Christians” today care more about a status symbol than the laws of their God. Do you love Him enough not to vandalize His Temple with the graffiti of tattoos? You know if you went to Jerusalem right now to visit the real Temple Mount you would not vandalize the western wall with spray paint, so why do so many “Christians” today do this with God’s new covenant Temple—their body that they are charged with covenant care over?


One of the very first things we are told in the entire Bible is to take care of our God’s Creation—the earth and all that lives on it. Genesis 1:24-26 and 2:15 tell us we are to be responsible for all life and to properly steward The Creation. Do you love God enough to avoid, as much as is possible within the society created by evil men in which many of us are forced to live in, anything that would harm The Creation? Not everyone is in a position to live on a homestead or drive an electric car, but you can evaluate ways to make better choices for the sake of The Creation.


Do you love Yeshua enough to study The Torah and seek out every possible way you can fulfill the commandment: If you love Me, keep My commandments? (see Exodus 20:3-6, Deuteronomy 5:8-10, 7:9-11, 10:12-13, 11:1, 11:13-14, 11:22-23, 19:8-9, 30:16, Joshua 22:5, Daniel 9:4, Nehemiah 1:5-6, John 14:15) Yeshua took this commandment one step further in saying: “Whoever has the commandments and keeps them, that is the one who loves Me” (John 14:21). And in saying these things, The Bible also says that whoever does not keep the commandments is a person who hates God and hates Messiah Yeshua. Most “Christians” do not like to be told that, but it’s the simple truth that the opposite of love is hate, so if loving God and loving Yeshua is defined by keeping the commandments then breaking the commandments is defined as hating God and hating Yeshua. This is why Scripture declares: They profess Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me (Isaiah 29:13, Ezekiel 33:31, Matthew 15:7-9).


Allow me to ask a different but strikingly similar question: Do you trust God? Do you trust Him enough to not question His commandments? Do you believe through faith that God is God so when He says to do or not to do something there does not need to be a reason? Do you believe through faith that God is God and when He gives a commandment it doesn’t matter if some “clever preacher” thinks he or she has figured out a way around it? Do you trust God, His Word, and His commandments enough to just obey them through faith?


Remember, in the biblical narrative it is the Genesis 3 serpent alone that dared to lead people to question, reject, and break the commandment of God. The commandment broken was eating something God said not to eat. The event appears to have taken place on The Sabbath Day with the people in the midst of their place of work, the garden they were charged with tending—a place they did not belong on The Sabbath Day. And to this day the “Christian” majority above all other commandments oppose following the commandments regarding The Sabbaths and those things God said not to eat.


Religious people are always looking for a way to “have faith in God” while trying to find ways to avoid Torah-obedience. The food laws provide one of the best examples of this in the entire Bible. Show them that Acts 10 is not about an overturning of the food laws and they will just go to Mark 7. Show them that Mark 7 is about eating bread without washing your hands and exalting the traditions of men, having nothing to do with the Leviticus food laws, and they will take you to 1 Timothy 4:3-5, Romans 14, or Colossians 2:16-17. Show them that they are taking these passages out of context and they will seek out some even more obscure statement they can twist and manipulate to justify breaking the commandment of God. Even when you show them that in Revelation 18:2 unclean animals are still unclean they will look for justification to eat their swine flesh and ocean cockroaches (pork and shellfish, the most commonly eaten unclean things).


These are not people who trust the God of creation. They are not people who follow the real Messiah. These are a rebellious people who have convinced themselves that they can “believe in Jesus” while rejecting everything He stood for and everything He came to accomplish. They are so deceived through “Christian” religion that they actually believe that obeying The Bible is a rejection of The Messiah and that The Bible teaches them to reject The Torah.


It’s All About Yeshua!


As I prepare to bring this message to a close, I want to get a few things off my chest as I am growing weary of traditional “Christians” making false accusations against Torah-positive ministry. Everything I do is for the primary purpose of leading people to the REAL biblical Yeshua. Throughout The Gospels and the writings of the apostles we find statements about counterfeit messiahs and “another Jesus” that are different from the one true Messiah declared in Scripture. As I noted early in this message, the biblical Yeshua lived by The Torah, upheld The Torah, and consistently taught His followers to obey the commandments. Just because someone’s message or methods may not be what is common to modern-day “Christian” evangelism or church practice does not mean it’s not The Gospel. Consider these words from John D. Garr, Ph.D., from his book Christian Fruit—Jewish Root: Theology Of Hebraic Restoration:


The Messiah was, is, and will ever be a Jew: 1) he was born a Jew, 2) he lived a Jew, 3) he died a Jew, 4) he resurrected a Jew, 5) he ascended a Jew, 6) he sits at the Father's right hand a Jew, and 7) he will return to earth a Jew. These facts are confirmed by Scripture in the following manner: 1) The sages from Babylon who followed his star asked, "Where is he that is born the King of the Jews." 2) The woman at the well of Samaria specifically said to Jesus, "Why is it that you, a Jew, asks of me water to drink. 3) At his crucifixion, a Roman titulus was placed over Jesus' head, saying in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin, "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. 4) Peter said of the resurrection of Jesus, "God had sworn with an oath to [David], that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne." 5) Peter said concerning Jesus' resurrection and ascension, "He was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. God has raised this Jesus to life ... exalted to the right hand of God. 6) The writer of Hebrews said that because "it is clear that [Jesus] descended from Judah," God restored the "order of Melchizedek" so that Jesus could be the eternal High Priest. 7) When Jesus ascended into heaven, the angels assured the believers, "This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven "


Without a doubt, then, Christianity owes its understanding of the Messiah, its experience of the Messiah, and its expectation of the return of the Messiah to the Jews. The Jewish Messianic expectation has become and will ever remain the blessed hope of Christianity.


To be clear, my understanding of these words relates to a genuine Christianity where both The Torah and The Messiah are equally at the center of faith practice according to Revelation 12:17 and 14:12. I am sure Dr. Garr would agree with this based on what he said. Torah-rejecting “Christianity”—the religion of the masses—is a false religion with a false messiah, “another Jesus”, a counterfeit faith with a counterfeit god that does not adhere to the whole counsel of Scripture and the Torah-positive context of The Bible from cover to cover.


I began this study looking at the words of the biblical prophets, and certainly there is no greater prophet than Yeshua. He is, after all, the prophet like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15-19, Acts 3:22-26, Acts 7:37). In Deuteronomy 13 instructions are given on how to identify a false prophet. It tells us that no matter what the prophet does—if they work confirmed miracles, give predictions that come to pass, or do magnificent signs and wonders—if they do not uphold The Torah of God they are to be deemed a false prophet and we are not to listen to them. In fact, so long as the Torah prerequisites can be followed—which currently they cannot—a false prophet is to be stoned. If Yeshua did not uphold The Torah, He would be a false prophet, not the prophet like Moses. If the work of the cross overturned The Torah as “Christians” believe, then we are not to listen to a word Yeshua said.


You know, 1 Corinthians 3:6-8 says that there are those who plant and those who water. Then in 1 Corinthians 12 Paul gives a more detailed explanation of the same message illustrating it with the function of body parts. There are different people with different roles. Take a person called to study deeper points of theology and teach them in a university. That person may never be engaged in missionary work, but that should not be used against them. That is not their calling. That person was called to study, perhaps write books, and teach those who will be going into ministry. Sadly, much of the time I see “Christians”, including so-called pastors, shaming others for what they are not doing.


If a person stepped outside of their calling because someone convinced them they should be evangelizing in the streets they might make a mess of things and they would not be teaching the people they are called to teach. Just because someone’s calling does not fit into your little box of what you think “real ministry” is does not mean that what they are doing is wrong. If they are teaching the true biblical Messiah and Torah obedience, they are doing “real ministry”. If they are neglecting one of those two essentials, they are deceiving people.


Recently someone tried to tell me that they found my teachings too complicated. They were trying to tell me I need to teach simpler messages, the basics, on a level like you would teach someone new to the faith. I tried to explain that I am doing what I am called to do and what I am led by The Spirit to do, and this seemed to anger them or offend them.


It was rather amusing, but they told me that my teachings were like going to a basic math class and trying to teach algebra. Perhaps because that person felt they were “new to the faith” or not grounded enough in the basic tenants of Scripture for what I teach I can understand why they would think that, but the problem is that there still needs to be an algebra class and an algebra teacher. And there has to be people teaching the deeper truths of Scripture and exposing the errors of popular “Christian” beliefs.


Look, if you are at a level where you feel you need “Bible basics”, attend a Sunday School class at pretty much any church within a ten-mile radius of your home. I assure you they are teaching the basics of The Gospel there. They may not have a correct view of all aspects of Scripture, but most “Christian” churches at least have it right where the basic Gospel message is concerned. My point is that I do not feel, with the message I have been called to study and proclaim, that it is beneficial to neglect what I am called to in order to tell someone what he or she can get from any church. I do not need to teach people about John 3:16—I mean, I do of course, but I’m sure you understand the point I am making here—lead a Bible-based finances or marriage course, or tell people why they need to be baptized. Almost every church in America and even around the world does these things. I am focused on teaching the one thing that the churches refuse to teach—that living by The Torah remains the mandate of God’s Kingdom and following Yeshua means following The Torah.


My mission is to lead people to Yeshua, the real Messiah. My calling is to do that through intense research that leads to in-depth teachings to counter what has for too long been taught in error about Him in “Christian” churches. I will not be deterred. I will not be discouraged. And I will absolutely not allow the random people who occasionally don’t like what I am doing, for whatever reason, to try dictating how I should do things. I will yield to Scripture, Messiah, and The Spirit of God alone.


I have people who I submit to for accountability. That is something every minister should have. But I assure you they are not people who came around to learn under me, fill their life with worldly filth all the time, and get offended when I do not “receive advice” from them. You should never do that if you are called to ministry, you must stand bold in your calling. And if you recognize someone as a qualified Bible teacher, your position is to learn from him or her, not try to teach them how to teach whenever they present Bible truth that makes you uncomfortable.


I am saying all of this because I want to make it abundantly clear that everything I do serves to present the real Messiah. And the real Messiah is The Righteous One who upheld The Father’s Torah, fills His covenant followers with The Torah, and leads them to live by The Torah. Any “messiah” who does not do this is a counterfeit and an imposter who must be rejected. This includes the false “Jesus” of the majority of those following modern-day popular “Christianity”. The Real Messiah, Yeshua, was a Torah-keeping Jewish Rabbi who taught His followers to live by The Torah; He was not a lawless “Christian” pastor telling people they don’t have to keep The Torah anymore. So I will end with this, 1 John 2:6, where it says: “whoever claims to abide in Him must walk just as He walked.” Follow the real Messiah, follow the Torah-keeping Yeshua, and walk as He walked.
