  1. Tablet article:
    Palestinian leader says peace process futile, Jihadists the most noble and exalted of all human beings

    “From afar, Meshal and other Palestinian leaders are calling for an ‘intifada.’

    ‘The so-called peace process is futile,’ said Meshal. ‘There is no peace. Only the path of Jihad, sacrifice, and blood (will bear fruit).

    Allah… accepts their Jihad and their martyrdom. By God, they are the most exalted and the noblest of people.’”

  2. I don’t believe we can say Nostra Aetate repudiated supersessionism, only the idea of the Jews’ collective guilt for the death of Christ.

  3. re: December 25th
    “The Real Star of Bethlehem” claims that December 25th was (according to an astronomical program) actually the day the Magi arrived to give Yehoshua / Jesus gifts at the time he was a toddler [Luke].

  4. Thanks for addressing that Vatican statement, Dr. Brown. Three quick notes.

    1. Thank you for the love you show when you keep sharing the gospel with the Jewish people AND affirm their national election at the same time.

    2. It seems baffling to me that the Roman Catholic church could keep the ingrained dogma that the it has supplanted and replaced the People of God, the Temple (St. Peter’s Basilica), the High Priesthood (“Pontifex Maximus” is the title of high priest), the regular sacrifice (the wafer and wine are an actual sacrifice of Jesus), and priesthood (Catholic priests are mediators of that sacrifice and other grace) – and still publish a paper such as this one that seems to contradict all of that.

    3. I think it’s a shame that they’ve swung from one end of the spectrum to the other. Ostensibly, they’ve gone from Jewish replacement (not biblical) to dual covenant theology (not biblical). It would be nice to see them sit in the tension of Romans 11:28 – that the Jewish nation is (1) still elect as a nation, with territory, but (2) still needs faith is Jesus for soul-changing salvation. Thanks again for affirming that tension clearly, Dr. Brown.

  5. The Vatican is not Christian in the first place neither are Roman Catholics! We must never give an credence to the Vatican as being Christian in any real sense! What this Pope says must be criticized always in the light of that! Gospel truth demands this. Popery is not Christianity.Lts be clear on this. We are to witness and be a light to them as we are to the Jews!

  6. Dan1el,

    Since Herod had all the children in the area under 2 killed, it could be that the Magi got there after Messiah was 1 year old, but before 2 years old. The Greek word does seem to indicate that he was not an infant but a toddler as you stated.

    December 25th does not mean anything as it is a date on a pagan calendar and the dates would not line up with YHWH’s scriptural calendar except on extremely rare occasions. So we are not even celebrating the gift giving on the right day according to YHWH’s calendar. And YHWH does not ask us to celebrate either Messiah’s birth or the day that He was given gifts. He does ask us to celebrate other days that correspond to His plan of salvation that are according to His calendar though.

    Shalom

  7. Bo,
    I would also be concerned with a false sense of peace a person could have merely because they were commemorating the day Messiah received some gifts or was born; however, I don’t think God is 100% against “Christmas”, because I think God is flexible on some matters – e.g., God allowed David to impose on Him the idea of the stationary Temple (i.e., as opposed to the ambulant Tabernacle He had ordered).
    I do think we should seek the things that are above, and this may lead to the exclusion of all looking for earthly days, but we can make an opportunity out of this “holiday” to glorify God by showing God’s love at a time when people can be more mindful of and receptive to God’s love. If people want to have a holiday when they accentuate God’s love in sending Messiah, would God be 100% opposed to that just because some pagans had done something similar around the same time? I do not necessarily think so. That being said, the #1 concern is being found in a state that is pleasing to God – what ever the definition of that may be – and that celebrating a particular day has 0% to do with that. We need to be walking in the spirit with our minds on heavenly things not earthly things – a place where we do not walk by the light of the sun since God is Himself the Light.

  8. Dan1el,

    Actually it may be, and I assert that it is, that YHWH is concerned with specific days and the ways in which we keep them. Like David that did some horrendous things and still was called a man after YHWH’s own heart, we can do the same thing with our celebrations and by grace be still be considered people after YHWH’s own heart. But if David would have continued in murder and adultery, he would have no doubt lost that title and we also if we continue to sin after coming to the knowledge of the truth. (Heb 10:26)

    It is not, as you suggest, that YHWH is 100% concerned with our heart and 0% concerned with how and what we celebrate. Our hearts are shown by our actions. (Jam 2:18-20) The aspects of what we do and what we think/believe cannot be separated. We dare not justify an action by virtue of the fact that the person performing it has a true heart for YHWH. We also dare not justify the heart of a person by virtue of the fact that he outwardly adheres to what is right either.

    That said, YHWH has specified some days and ways that He calls holiness. We are not allowed to invent our own holiness or we are actually holy to ourselves or to a system or group and not to YHWH. For us to have a true heart toward YHWH while in our ignorance of YHWH’s instructions concerning holiness, we might be found celebrating/worshiping contrary to His instructions. In these instances we are declared righteous by faith and grace covers our unintentional sin. But in the instances that we know to do good and do it not (Jam 4:17) or are not completely sure that what we are doing is correct according to YHWH’s instructions (Ro 14:23) or if we are knowingly transgressing YHWH’s law (1 Jo 3:4), we reveal our deceitful heart (Jer 17:9; 5:31) and must repent to be forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness. (Prov. 28:13; 1 Jo 1:9) Knowingly rejecting YHWH’s instructions concerning holiness to Him is idolatry and rebellion. Participating in things that we know were invented by man as service to idols and systems that fly in the face of YHWH is not a light thing.

    Be careful that you do not encourage those that are in the root of bitterness. Those that think that they can do what they want while ignoring YHWH’s direct instructions defile many by their attitude of blessing themselves in their hearts while walking according to their own inventions.

    Heb 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

    De 29:18 lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from Jehovah our God, to go to serve the gods of those nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;
    19 and it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart, to destroy the moist with the dry.
    20 Jehovah will not pardon him, but then the anger of Jehovah and his jealousy will smoke against that man, and all the curse that is written in this book shall lie upon him, and Jehovah will blot out his name from under heaven.

    And yes the “root of bitterness” that the author of Hebrews is referring to is the “root that bears gall and wormwood” in Deuteronomy.

    Nu 15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
    39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
    40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

    If we are constantly going with the crowd and forgetting YHWH’s instructions concerning holiness, then we prove that we need a reminder. When we refuse to accept YHWH’s instructions concerning this reminder, we prove that we do not really care about what He calls holiness. Yes, we go a whoring after Xmas and all sorts of things that YHWH never commanded and continue to reject YHWH’s holy commandment. “WWJD” jewelry is a perfect example of rejecting YHWH’s commandment in favor of our own ideas of a reminder. Maybe it really means “what would Judas do?”. He would come up with a marketing ploy to fleece the flock while keeping them in ignorance of what YHWH’s word does say. Is xmas any different?

    2Pe 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    Xmas and many such things are pollutions of the world and any things that happen to be truth in such celebrations are polluted by worldly customs and idolatry. We have turned from the holy commandment of YHWH concerning when and how to worship Him on the days that He made holy and are gone a whoring because the root of bitterness in this area has been allowed to defile a very great many.

    Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

    The above verse comes just before the “root of bitterness” verse. We will not see YHWH if we continue to disregard His version of holiness. Being at peace with all men is not the same as going along with their polluted, vain worship.

    Mr 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    We need to find out what Peter is referencing in the following passage.

    1Pe 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
    16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
    17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
    18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
    19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
    20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
    21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
    22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
    23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

    Only in obeying the truth are our souls purified. Peter is referring to some very specific passages written that were before ordained that we should walk in in YHWH’s Torah. These passages inform us as to what living in holiness includes. This “word of God” abides forever. It has not been set aside.

    Ro 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    To be continued below:

  9. Continued from above:

    Check out the “be ye holy” passages that Peter calls our attention to.

    Le 11:44 For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
    45 For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
    46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
    47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

    Le 19:2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.
    3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.
    4 Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.

    Le 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
    8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you…
    22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.
    23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them…
    26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

    Nu 15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
    39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
    40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

    One thing is abundantly clear. We are not holy to YHWH if we do not remember and keep His commandments. He asks us to do some simple things concerning His sabbaths and feast days and concening our diet and our clothing and concerning not keeping the traditions of the nations. These are part of true holiness.

    Eph 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
    18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
    19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
    20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
    21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
    22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
    23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
    24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

    Walking in uncleanness is not true holiness. Consistently eating the things that YHWH has told us are unclean is walking in uncleanness. It shows our greediness and deceitful lust. It shows our ignorance and blindness of heart. We are not supposed to act like gentiles any longer in the vanity of our minds…a whoring after our own ideas. We are to cleanse ourselves of uncleanness both spiritual and physical.

    2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
    18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
    1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

    We deceive ourselves if we think that we are perfecting holiness while ignoring YHWH’s holiness laws. A new heart keeps YHWH’s statutes and ordinances. It loves YHWH’s law.

    Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
    27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

    Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah…
    33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    It is not written on our hearts if we do not want to do it. If we do not want to do it, if it is grievous to us, we are not in the new covenant and we do not really love either YHWH or our brothers.

    1Jo 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    So the heart and spirit that YHWH is 100% concerned with must directly affect our actions according to what He has written concerning holiness or we deceive ourselves by being hearers only. His perfect law is still perfect and has not been set aside or made void.

    Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
    23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
    24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
    25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    If the meditations of our hearts and the words of our mouths are not acceptable according to YHWH’s holiness laws, we will be in danger of unknowingly sinning (secret faults), sinning presumptuously and of committing the great transgression.

    Ps 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
    8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
    9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
    10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
    11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
    12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
    13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
    14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

    Jer 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
    8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
    9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?

    Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

    When we are still going by the “vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers” instead or by every word that has come from YHWH, can we expect the modern pastors and prophets to not speak lies…especially if the so called “believers” love to have it so? What will we do in the end thereof? Celebrate xmas and ignore YHWH’s holy celebrations, that’s what.

    Shalom

  10. Bo,
    Peter didn’t live like a Jew, and wasn’t a root of bitterness; Paul didn’t bring his churches with him to Jerusalem.

    John defines what he means by “Commandments” in 1 John in the very same book: believe on the Name of the Son and love one another. The proof is that the only people who receive His Spirit are those abiding in Him – defined only as those who keep His Commandments – and we know that the way to receive His Spirit is by “hearing and believing” [Acts 10; Gal 3:1-5].

    We could go over every one of these points you raise, answering them, but I have real concerns to attend to, and we both know you have a problem acknowledging Truth when it is shown to you – it would be fruitless.

  11. Peter didn’t live as a Jew – Gal 2:14

    John defines “God’s Commandments”, thus the criteria for receiving God’s Spirit – 1 Jn 3:22-24

  12. Bo,
    “Participating in things that we know were invented by man as service to idols…”

    Yet Paul says he could literally go inside an idol’s temple, and eat meat sacrificed to an idol as long as he didn’t make anyone stumble [1 Co 8].

    “…and systems that fly in the face of YHWH is not a light thing.”

    Again, David imported the idea of the stationary Temple – something which did not proceed from God’s Mind [1 Ch 14:1-7] – and yet God accepted it even though it wasn’t God’s system.

    But again I’m not going to spend any more time.

  13. And so once again the one that accuses has proven that it is he that has a problem with truth.

    It is obvious from scripture that YHWH approved of David’s idea and it was confirmed by a prophet. Xmas is in no way comparable. Paul didn’t say that he could go into an idols temple and eat. It was a hypothetical argument. His final statement in that argument is:

    1Co 10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
    20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
    21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

    Shalom

  14. Dan1el,

    Do you really think that Constantine and Pope Julius I should be classified anywhere close to king David? Xmas is contrary in so many ways to what he scripture teaches.

  15. Daniel,

    Did you notice what Bo just did? He either didn’t hear you, or pretended not to, and then he writes out of context, leaving out the rest of the verses. Bo, please explain to us your understanding of I Cor 10:23-26.

    Paul would not want Christians eating merrily with Gentiles who offered themselves to devils, or eating of those things when they say, “This was offered to an idol.” Yet, if they need meat, they may buy whatever they need, taking no thought about it, because an idol is nothing.

  16. Legalists reveal themselves by showing they only know the letter of things, and seem to know nothing of the matters of the heart.

  17. Ray, you accuse and tempt true believers to disobey YHWH’s word. Messiah answered the accuser and the tempter this way:

    Mt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    Every word means every word. Those that are quick to accuse of legalism are usually, if not always, disobedient and rebellious to the word of YHWH. Thew will forfeit their priesthood and their kingship.

    Ho 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king…
    26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

    According to the last book of the Bible, we are to not only have our faith in Y’shua, but to also keep YHWH’s commandments. One without the other proves that we are not actually enduring to the end. Those that refuse to keep YHWH’s commandments will not enter the Holy City or eat from the tree of life and live forever. Only those that endure till the end will be saved.

    Re 14:12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

    Re 22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.

    Mt 24:11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
    12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.
    13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

    Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

    It is quite obvious that the false prophets have convinced many to disobey YHWH’s law. Their love has grown cold…because those that love YHWH keep His commandments. Those that do not keep them that think that they love Him are deceived.

    1Jo 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
    5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
    6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
    7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

    Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

    Ro 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

    Ex 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

    De 11:13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

    Those that refuse to keep YHWH’s commandments or find them to be grievous or too hard or to be legalism do not love YHWH or their brothers.

    1Jo 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    Those that do not keep YHWH’s commandments are liars and the truth is not in them.

    1Jo 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
    5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
    6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    How did Messiah walk? By every word of YHWH, not just the convenient ones or the ones that His culture or church approved of. Many will come at the end and think that they have been faithful because they have done miraculous things like speaking in tongues. Many of these will be rejected because they refused to keep YHWH’s law.

    Mt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
    22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’
    23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

    1Jo 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
    6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
    7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
    8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

    Be careful, Ray. Those that willfully transgress the law are of the devil. These do not know YHWH, though they think they do.

    Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

    It is much better to confess your breaking of YHWH’s law as sin so you can be cleansed from all unrighteousness instead of refusing to keep YHWH’s law and saying that you are not sinning by doing so.

    1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    Those that do not have His word in them will not keep every word that comes from YHWH’s mouth. They make YHWH into a liar by saying that His law is void (not applicable). Paul has something to say about that.

    Ro 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Shalom

  18. And if things go the way they usually do, Ray will ignore every scripture that I posted above. Let’s hope and pray that he takes them to heart this time.

    Shalom

  19. Ray,
    Don’t be startled at Bo’s behavior, just move on in obedience to God’s Word. He will be either repent in this life or be repaid for his rebellion against God’s righteousness [Ro 10:3] in that Day.

  20. Dan1el and Ray,

    Do not fooled by the false prophets that tell you that you can disobey YHWH’s law. You will only be building your house on the sand.
