I would like to reply to your post, John, but I don't see where/how. If you are willing to continue this discussion, please inform me how to make a response. Thanks.
After reading some of your articles on the main page, it is my understanding (therefore, please correct me if I have misunderstood) that you do not believe the talmidei Yeshua, whether Gentile or Jew, should obey the Torah. By "Torah," I am referring to the commandments promulgated to corporate Israel at Sinai.
Myself, I believe there is one Torah for both Gentile and Jew. Mind you, I have not come to this conclusion lightly.
I believe the Bible does not contradict itself and that "all scripture is profitable for doctrine" (2 Tim. 3:15-16). I am aware that you quoted this particular verse in one of your articles, but then you proceeded to deny the Torah should be obeyed. How is that possible?
If all scripture is profitable for doctrine (teaching), and if Paul was obviously referring to the Tenakh, then how can one possibly say that the Torah does not need to be obeyed by the Israel of God? Did not both Yeshua and Paul always preach from the Law and Prophets on Shabbath?
Actually, just nevermind all that.
I have one question for you, John. Just one.
I want to direct you to the prophet Yeshiyahu in chapter 2:
In v. 2, he begins, "in the last days." I do not believe that phrase requires explanantion. It has yet to come, and the scripture proves why.
It continues, "the mountain of YHVH's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it."
This has never occurred before; therefore, we know that Yeshiyahu's prophesy has not yet come to fruition.
In v. 3, he states, "And many people shall go and say, "Come and let us go up to the mountain of YHVH, to the house of the God of Jacob; and, He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths, for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."
In summary, Yeshiyahu states that "in the last days...the Torah shall go forth out of Zion and the word of YHVH from Jerusalem." Coincidentally, God (the Messiah) "will teach us of His ways and we will walk in His paths."
If the Torah is not to be obeyed, then why does it go forth from Zion "in the last days"?
Either the Torah is to be obeyed [still], or Isaiah is a false prophet.
Why are sacrifices present in the Millennial Kingdom (Ezek. 40-48)?
Why will all flesh come to worship YHVH on the New Moon and Sabbaths in the Millennium (Isa. 66:23)?
