Evil False Doctrines “Hebrew Roots Movement “ and other Doctrines Promoting The Law of Moses as for Today
These false doctrines have been around for a long time. Promoting the use of Hebrew, the defunct laws of Moses and all things of the age of the Israelites. Now they are popping up again. It all gets beat down and goes underground for a while then years later is brought to the surface again by a new or invigorated bunch of apostates.
Why would followers of Christ, the only man that could fulfill the law want to brought under defunct temporary laws given only to and for the most rebellious people ever to be claimed by God, when we have the example of His son who was obedient in all things, fulfilled every jot and tittle of the law, was killed and resurrected to be the only one who can return our eternal life to us that Adam lost by his disobedience in the Garden ?
One of their foremost scriptures used to support their false belief is this one below. Two things that they do not understand which prove they are trying to deceive all who would listen to them are. Jesus says He is going to fulfill, in other words meet the requirements in the law for ending it as told in the old testament and known by all Israelites. The second is just as nefarious as the use of the first. They either do not realize that Jesus was UNDER THE LAW in this passage or hope you do not realize that, as He was not yet crucified and resurrected and that is when the law and that age were finished, done away with. Under the law as stated here, it could not pass away until every jot and tittle was fulfilled, which Jesus did, thereby forcing the law and that age to be replaced with this current age the age of Christ's rule. The end of this current age will be the great white throne judgment.
The scriptures warn us multiple times that we must not be deceived. Those teaching this false doctrine fulfill the things that these warning say they will use to deceive even the elect.
Matt 5:17-20 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matt 24:11-14 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Rom 16:17-18 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
Here is why the laws of Moses were given to the Israelites and why God gave them the age where men ruled over them. The people did not want to be accountable to God, they wanted a man to represent them, but this is not Gods way. He allowed it as an example to us to see the evil that fluorishes when men control the access to God. That is why we are not supposed to believe any man (unless and until the Holy Spirit confirms it as truth) during this final age of man. God sent His Holy Spirit to teach us because only the very Spirit of the Living God knows ALL THINGS. There is ONLY ONE way to regain our eternal life that Adam gave away by his disobedience, THROUGH THE MAN CHRIST JESUS. The dead laws of Moses have NO validity in this age of Christ.
Ex 20:18-21 Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. 19 Then they said to Moses, "You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die." 20 And Moses said to the people, "Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin." 21 So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was.
Note that in the beginning, God walked in the garden WITH Adam, His home was on earth and HE declared that ALL WAS GOOD. And it will be that way again in His eternal kingdom.
But here Because the people rejected the relationship that God desired, God banned them from His presence. This pleased the people and then they were sprinkled with the blood of the covenant, binding them to this arrangement which they had confirmed. This bound them to this covenant of their choosing, note this is a covenant of men and is not what God desires for His people. God made this covenant to teach that is will be their enemy not their salvation. This covenant was between God and the nation of Israel and never included any other race of people, then or now. The nation of Israel is no longer the chosen of God, in our age today the people of God are His sons that have come to Him through Jesus and Any and ALL people that will do all Jesus requires are welcome..
Ex 24:1-8 Now He said to Moses, "Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship from afar. 2 And Moses alone shall come near the Lord, but they shall not come near; nor shall the people go up with him." 3 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the Lord has said we will do." 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord. And he rose early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 Then he sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to the Lord. 6 And Moses took half the blood and put it in basins, and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, "All that the Lord has said we will do, and be obedient." 8 And Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, "This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you according to all these words."
Of course if you are foolish enough to accept this false doctrine then this scripture applies to you. Do you like this or would you prefer to live under the NEW COVENANT OF JESUS CHRIST, THE ONE FULL OF LOVE, FORGIVENESS AND MERCY? Do you see what it says, if you work on the sabbath you must be killed? And there are many more of these distasteful requirements in the Law and ALL with NO chance of forgiveness. Note even here it states THIS IS ONLY APPLICABLE TO THE “CHILDREN OF ISRAEL”. And yes, those Israelites that reject Christ are still under the law BUT NO ONE ELSE IS or ever was or will be.
Ex 31:12-17 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 "Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: 'Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.'"
If you think this covenant made God happy then read this. God is sick of them telling Him what they want instead of submitting to Him as His children should. Of course that is one of the problems with humans, they want to do their own thing and do not want anyone to tell them what to do. That is why God says few will find he narrow gate and difficult path because only those that will completely submit themselves to Him can be His Children, He will not force you to it must be your choice, your decision.
Num 14:11 Then the Lord said to Moses: "How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they."
I can give you literally hundreds more scriptures to show how wrong that false teaching is. Do not believe me but go to scripture and read all that it has to say about this subject. The law of Moses was for the children of Israel only, it NEVER applied to any other people. It was for the age of the Israelites only. It was fulfilled and of no more validity when Jesus was crucified, as evidenced by the supernatural occurances at the moment when He gave up His spirit and died, the veil of the temple was rent so no longer did any one that wanted to meet with God have to go anywhere, He was now available through Christ to anyone anytime and anywhere and on every day..
Your choice, you can follow the scriptural admonition “DO NOT BE DECEIVED” and believe no man unless his words are confirmed by the Holy Spirit as truth and find the narrow gate and difficult path that lead to eternal life. Or you can follow the apostate men that are set on leading you astray and take the wide gate and wide comfortable path with them as they walk into the lake of fire to their destruction.
Matt 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
There is no place in this age of Christ for the law of Moses. The law was given only to Israel and only for a season. It is judgment with no forgiveness but only condemnation. That is why no one could be saved by the law. It was their fruit of rejecting God that gave them the law.
Now let me ask you to look at it another way. The way of scripture truth.
All authority on heaven and earth is given to Jesus for this age. The end of this age is at the judgment seat of God, where God will take the Lamb's book of life and judge ALL man that has ever lived. Only Jesus Christ can write your name in the book. Those whose names are written in the book will be allowed entry into the eternal kingdom of God and inherit the earth as scripture proclaims.
Those whose names are not found in the book (they never became disciples of Christ or did not endure to the end) are cast into the lake of fire for their DESTRUCTION. This is the cleansing of all unrighteousness from the earth by fire. Total destruction in the fire.
Matt 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
1 Cor 15:20-28 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For "He has put all things under His feet." But when He says "all things are put under Him," it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
You have to understand the ages of man to understand the truth about this age. I have an article explaining this that you should read. This is the key to understanding truth of this age through and in the end. Jesus Christ brought to us the opportunity to regain the life (eternal) that Adam lost in the garden by his disobedience.
In the garden that God made for man there was no separation between God and Man. God said everything He made was GOOD and He approved it. The relationship with man that was approved by God was God living on earth with man, Adams disobedience in the garden caused separation, death. Man continues to reject God throughout the ages of man. But as man got more evil and rebellious the earth became so polluted that God could not stay there and He moved into heaven, not because he wanted to but because of the corruption of man.
This life, what is left of it has two purposes. One reason Jesus came is to bring us life, that is those that will do all He requires to become disciples of Christ, sons of God, regain the eternal life to live on the new earth with God for eternity. The other is to separate them from the others that will be removed from the earth as was done in the days of Noah. God covenanted not to destroy man with a flood ever again but that He will destroy ALL unrighteousness from the earth that His sons may inherit a pure undefiled Earth. But because it being defiled so badly He cannot life on it He will then give a a new heaven and earth, then move onto it with His throne and live among His sons forever, which was His original intention but Adam defiled it.
In other words it is all about God and the man He created to be restored to their original relationship, but without the rebellious ones that have defiled all of God's creation. That's it.
The law was was part of the age of the Israelites and was for that age only, just as the flood was for the age of Noah to cleanse the earth and give man another chance at redemption.
All past ages are lessons for us to learn about God and His desired relationship with man and have NO PLACE IN THIS AGE, other than to warn us of what not to do as all other ages were a failure and could not do what Jesus came and did and that is why He came, was mercilessly killed, was resurrected and stands in God's stead as our only redeemer and the entry to the eternal kingdom of God.
That is everything in a nutshell. If you can see this you can become a son of God, if not then it is not possible because the salvation (return of eternal life) is only available through Jesus Christ and NOTHING ELSE can have any place in the redemption.
I pray you will let the real Holy Spirit of God show you all truth in this matter as He alone can do.
Do NOT BE DECEIVED MY BELOVED are his words to you and me.
