"And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." (Genesis 5:24)
Some would not consider this to be an illustration of the ascension of Christ, and perhaps, rightly so. It may illustrate more rightly, the pre-trib rapture of the church. The Bible, speaking of types and shadows in the Old Testament now clearly revealed in the New, are not a few. The Bible tells us, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples (Gr. tupos): and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (1 Corinthians 10:11) Hebrews 11:5 states concerning Enoch, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." As for Christ, we are told, "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him." (Romans 6:9) Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Death is no longer able to touch Him, as He is "alive for evermore" (Revelaiton 1:18). And after He was seen of many witnesses we are told He was "taken up ... into heaven" (Acts 1:11). So we believe that the arguement can be made, that, if Enoch illustrates the pre-trib rapture of the siants, the only reason they are able to be raptured, is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, and "ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things" (Ephesians 4:10). Jesus said, "because I live, ye shall live also" (John 14:9). "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." (1 John 4:9). We only live because Christ lives. He is the first cause of all things, and so too, the ressurection from the dead, as He said, "I am the ressurection, and the life" (John 11:12), and our ascension into heaven, for He "ascended on high [and] led captivity captive" (Psalm 68:18).
"So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God." (Mark 16:19)
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5)
"And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." (Genesis 9:26-27)
It is clear that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, was born of the line of Shem. The question is whether or not this was foretold in Genesis 9:26-27. We are told that "he shall dwell in the tents of Shem". Does the "he" refer to God or Japheth? It is noted that God's spiritual blessings would fall primarily on Shem whose God is Jehovah. And if the "he" be Japheth, from whom the Gentiles descended, I think that this would imply that Japheth would come to share in the spiritual blessings and fellowship of Shem. This would be totally in agreement with the Scriptures for the Gentiles did recieve light and blessings through the descendant of Shem, and the promised Seed, namely Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, if the "he" be God, and it be He who would shine through and tabernacle with Shem, even until the fulness of time when God sent forth His Son, the true Light of the world, when the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabenacled) among us, this also would be in agreement with the Scripture.
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli... Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Shem..." (Luke 3:23-36)
"But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered." (Jeremiah 11:19)
Not many commentators apply this verse in Jeremiah to Christ. Most apply it to Jeremiah, and indeed the people of apostate Israel and Judah at that time were speaking that to him. Nevertheless, what many have forgotten, is that many of the prophets, in one form or another of their ministry, exemplified in his own person some one feature or more in the manifold attributes and sufferings of the Messiah to come, and so that which applied to them, was in fact being spoken also of Christ.
And this is not hard to discern as this was also clearly spoken of the Messiah in Isaiah 53, that He "was cut off out of the land of the living", and ever so clearly in Daniel 9:27, that at the appointed time "shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself", no, not for Himself, but "for the transgression of my people was he stricken" (Isaiah 53:8).
Furthermore, this being conspired in the minds of the detractors, "that his name be no more remembered", would certainly remind us of Psalm 83, where it is written, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Here speaking of Israel, but once again, typified as Christ (Ex. 4:22, Hosea 11:1, Mt. 2:15) whom is identified as Israel, my firstborn Son whom He called out of Egypt, whom through the loins of Israel He was to come as the promised Seed of Abraham.
And Christ, foreknowing all things prophesied of this also saying, "the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31). And again, "they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." (Mark 10:34) And this being in their mind, we are told, "the Jews sought to kill him" (John 7:1), the Prince of life. And for what purpose? Even the ignorant Caiaphas prophesied that, "it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 11:50). And so, Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures. Hallelujah!
There are so many riches and treasures and wonders hidden in the Scriptures that they are just too wonderful for me.
"...the Jews sought to kill him." (John 7:1)
"...come, let us kill him..." (Matthew 21:28)

Is there any bible verses literarly in Old testament which tells us that Jesus is Son of God

Reply to Samson Berhe

In Proverbs 30:4 we are told that God has a Son. "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?" Jesus said this was referring to Him. "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." (John 3:13)

And again in the Second Psalm we are told, "I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." (v. 7) whom Paul interpreted as Jesus (Acts 13:33).

But this does not tell us in the OT that the Son's name is Jesus. In the OT His name appeared to be "secret" (Judges 13:18) Yet in the OT He went by many names, the Seed, Shiloh, Immanuel, the Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, and Prince of peace; the Lord our righteousness, and the Man, the Branch, I AM, etc.

In many places in the OT we are told about the Salvation of the Lord. Salvation is what the name of Jesus means. In the NT we are told, "thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)

It appears that not everyone can see this. Jesus said, "All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." (Matthew 11:27) But those who are sincerely seeking Him will find Him. "He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 16:15-17)

"The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my SALVATION (Heb. Yeshua): he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him." (Exodus 15:2)
"We will rejoice in thy SALVATION (Heb. Yeshua), and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions." (Psalm 20:5)
"Behold, God is my SALVATION (Heb. Yeshua); I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my SALVATION (Heb. Yeshua)." (Isaiah 12:2)

Jesus said no man has heard the father and no man has seen his shape. He also said to follow him. If no one had heard nor seen the father (GOD), then the gods in the old testament weren't GOD. Baffles me how many Christians skip the precious words of Jesus and choose instead to seek mysteries and theories. He clearly states that all who came before him were thieves and robbers. Why not just follow Jesus?
The 144,000 in Revelation plainly state they are the "first-fruits," ... 12 tribes and 12,000 each, equals 144,000. These were the slain firstborn sons (first fruits) of the Israelite's. Try to color it different, but it is what it is (was). Starts with the original Passover and the count ends in Numbers.
Jesus called the father of the Jews the devil, but appears to contradict himself when he later states he knows they are Abraham's seed. There is no contradiction as Sarai (Sarah) was his sister(same father) and the mother of Isaac. Rebekah was also of the same seed as Abraham. If no one had seen or heard from the true Father (GOD), then who were the men who appeared to Abram in the desert. Scripture says Ishmael IS Abraham's son, but his seed will be called in Isaac. Plain language and no mystery. So who was fathered by the devil then? Scripture says Abraham was considered righteous, so we need to look next to Isaac's lineage. King Ambilech said Abraham was to be a "covering" of the eyes regarding Sarah. He also admonished Abraham to treat his son fairly as he did his. What? Come again? Who was Ambilech's son that he bargained with?
Furthermore, Jesus said he wasn't coming back until the final day and not to listen to anyone who said they saw or heard him. Where's that leave Paul (Saul)? Read Revelation 2:2 and then reference who that church put on trial. Yes it was Paul. The same Paul that twist Jesus words and doctrine of faith. Etc...etc.
By the way, Adam did indeed die as GOD told him he would. Guess where he was sent went he died? When he had (human) skin placed up[on him? And Jesus tells us why we are here when he states the heaven is his throne and earth is his foot stool. Pretty clear when he ties it with the part about judgment takes place at the footstool; and then adds he came for judgment.
I'll stop before I get started. Folks need to listen to Jesus. Jesus. Jesus.

Best regards, Brother.

A lot to discuss! I only choose to discuss one (1) issue: Saul, also called Paul. Did Paul write the truth, or not?

One of the most powerful validations for Paul comes from Peter, in 2 Peter 3:15 "Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. 16 He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction." Peter validated Paul's Apostolic calling as well as his authority in Scripture writing. If we discount Peter's testimony, we have to discredit all testimony of those from that period as well as what they've written.

As for the account of when Jesus returns and the validity of seeing or hearing him, I'm not sure exactly what you're referencing. These were His final words to His followers, in Acts, before being taken up: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
And again, at the end of Revelation, Jesus says, 12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. 14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

Paul, furthermore, was accepted by the other Apostles. James & John certainly accepted him as well as his scriptural writing; others did as well. His (Paul's) biggest opponents tended to be the Rabbinical leadership, who sought to have him executed either by their own or Roman means.

Even more convincing for his validation, his work is very, very well-rooted in the Law, the Psalms & the Prophets. Using deductive reasoning in conjunction with careful scrutiny of said works, one can clearly see his letters are guided by the Spirit of the Lord, whom the Father has poured out on His people (church) to lead and guide us until Christ returns.

Very brief, I know. But it is a summary, albeit quite incomplete, of the validity of Paul and his calling - as well as position in apostolic ministry - by Jesus.

This is a special video, by a Dr. Scientist, and physicist, whom studied the Muslim activity in all country's and the negative effect during the last 1400 years. During the Ottoman Empire Era, and how that equates to Europe, and America's disposition on allowing Islam to take over their regions with the brutal Sharia Law, which would make one recollect the Revelation's depiction of the mind set of the day which characterized the "take the mark, bow to the beast or be beheaded" mindset.

Yes sir Mr. Al Foster, this is the final post for you, I'm affraid it was actually 6, Well after read it tell me what church you were able to find that could support your keeping the Chritian faith as commanded by our LORD, ok? alright, here's the last part then for you.

Well they thought Moses was dead, they thought they'd Lost their mediator; so they made the old Egyptian entity baal, the mediator to YHWH, even Aaron said tommorow is a feast to the LORD; see so its well I set this baal statue up for the LORD!? right, but what did the people have corrupted themeselves, its all here:

Exo 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
Exo 32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
Exo 32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
Exo 32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
Exo 32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.
Exo 32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
Exo 32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

So, the point is, God doesn't care what it means to you, its like what if you make dinner for your wife, or loved one on seemingly an odd day, during the meal, your wife asks, well honey, thank you, ahh whats this day for?

And you say: Ah oh, honey, this was the day I celebrated with my ex-girlfriend before I was married, do you like it? See, I forgot your day, or our day, and I didnt think anything was wrong, because to me it was to you!

Now, before she picks up the plait and throws it at you with the food still in it, what do you think God would do, when you do that to HIM? And he could just as easily say, if you want the baal's holidays so bad, why don't you just stay over there!

So, because you didn't inquire of your wife what was her birthday again? You've messed up all your credibility, and probably your marriage.

So that's why, Christmas, and Easter, being that God already said he hated those, wouldn't be the wisest thing to do when you are thinking of a day you'd like to be a feast unto the LORD, as Aaron said; besides God did kill Aaron for that sin, later after he set up the priest hood for his son whom didn't sin like that.

You're probably thinking, "Did the rapture happen and nobody told me who is this guy?" But I tell you, you need a congregation who will be able to support you in keeping these holy-days, which both mark the past and the future, because you can't do this on your own, I mean its possible, but I have a church to refer you too. Heck, you need a church which won't even say Merry Christmas to you, just throw their arms around and say bless the LORD, bless you how are you brother?!

Its called www.ElShaddai ministries.com and you can live stream their church service, at home, every Shabbat, or Sabbath which its also called, until you find one just like it in your area and attend their feast days unto the LORD with a group right there.

I would just go to the nearest: Messianic Jewish community Synagogue', or Church, they also call themselves, Messianic Jewish and Christian Church, and they accept everyone.

Well, God Bless everyone, please let me know if you enjoyed the long read, or if I should shorten it up a bit, now Hallelujah, everyone and Praise ye the LORD!

God the Father informs us of what HE doesn't like:
1. Christmas: God the Father informs us in Jerimiah 10:1-6, Christmas angers God!
look up Preacher: Charles Spurgeon's serman agasint it, it was illegal in this country in the 1875, by the Calvinists, and the Quakers.

2. Easter: is another, it is a pagan holiday to baal's wife. Nomatter what the Catholics say God hates the demon named the 'queen of heaven' yes because its Sermis, mother and wife of Nimrod the first world cult leader, who became the human sacrificing entity known as baal, the curren diety known as Allah, of Islam, yes of the Muslims.
Jer_44:19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?

See, the world has their own holidays, to their controlling entities, to lucifer. We can't keep those and please our heavenly Father.

3. Halloween is a holiday to scare demons. I don't think they would be scared of anyone without the authority of Christ.

So, no more of those holidays, of any kind. Unless you like not being blessed by God till you do let them go?

And you may say, oh, well its all about what it means to me, no, God, doesn't change for one, so he didn't like it when people didn't have the riches of Christ, and he then especially doesn't like if you take the riches of Christ and use them to commemorate baal, the adversary of man and God. And not only because Jesus might slap you across the mouth for saying that, like in the temple, when he drove out the money changers, and when he rebuked Peter, saying get the behind me satan. I wouldn't expect a warm welcome.

But truly because thats what happened to the Israel, when fresh out of Egypt, Moses took 50days, remember thats the feast of Shavuot. but when he returned he found them with an idol to that old Egyptian entity, baal.

What happened?

January 02, 2016 - 22:11

The next feast begins in May around the 25th, this is to commemorate the giving of the law of Moses, which is called Shavuot, and fulfilled in the giving of the Holy Spirit of Truth on the same day. We read in acts of the tongues of fire, which represented them receiving the comforter, in their hearts.

This feast begins exactly 50days after the day after Passover above. so The day after Passover, you count 50days, that's Sabbaths days=49days, then one day after =50, it alwasy falls on the first day of the week which would be sunday which brings you to a 1st day of the week or the 50thday. That is Shavuot, google, or youtube.

So the next holiday is in September which is the feast of Trumpets, the next day is Yom kipur, which is a 1day fast, where you afflict your soul, pray, fast 1day per year.

The last feasts of the year is The Feast of Tabernacles; a Tabernacle is a little house, King Solomon called them booths, and the Jews also call it the Feast of Sukkot, every year.

This feast of Sukkot, is kept for 8days, where in you feast, you can work during, cook clean... But it is a symbolic festival where it is one of the feasts which God hasn't fulfilled yet it is the feast which shows that the day of the rapture resurrection of the dead, this is what hasn't been fulfilled yet.

When Jesus was transfigured, it was on this holy feast day; called the feast of tabernacles:

Luk_9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

It also is to be the mark of the life after Jesus returns to reign, as it articulates the life style of the whole world as Jesus is reigning:

Zec_14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

Technically there are 2 more, 1 at the end of tabernacles, called the festival of Water libation in which the last 8th day, culminates in a lighting of I could say very tall telephone pole height, bright lites, which I believe is a reference to the sun being removed and the LORD's own brightness lights the world up.

Jesus made reference to himself of this during this feast in three areas, where says:

Joh_4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
Joh_4:11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
Joh_7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Hanukkah, means 'Re dedication', as in when they re dedication of the temple after the Roman's defiled it. Jesus honored it, I mean it was just before HIS arrival, had the Jews not went to war over it, and rededicated the temple Jesus would have no temple to launch HIS ministry from.. its in December like 16th, means dedication, it is not ordered of the LORD, but evidence shows that it was honored by our Lord. You may keep it as if you and your family are rededicating your personal temple of yourselves to the LORD on that day.
And there is much more information on that prophetic feast, they are just excellent.

Therefore, we have these holy-days mentioned in the law of Moses, they are 8 found in Leviticus 23:1-44.

Now, that means that there are Pagan holidays we are surely commanded not to keep!

Which if you're serving God, you won't have time for: like which one's you ask, good question:

Ok sir Mr. Al Foster, this is the last installment for you, as I promised, but it looks like its gone be 4 or 5, so I think you'll like it, it'll be worth your time sir: Thank you.

Therefore, no Jew can say, "I've made my culture myself! so leave me alone!" But even our culture is from God, and that makes the difference between us and the world, our culture differentiates us from the world by the commandments we keep.

But what does that look like, in our daily lives as we live by the law of God, well, it means a few changes to our lives that we had in the world.

Number
1. It means we have 8 new holidays, and we eliminate bout 4 of the old holydays.

What are the holy days?
Every week we get a feast called the Sabbath, Where every 7thday, which is called Saturday, on the Gregorian calendar, I call it the Sabbath day, as the LORD does, we don't work, we don't cook, or clean, we just meet for church service, once and then relax all day long, because on that day we are keeping it holy, this is the 4th of the 10 commandments, in which is marked by holiness, forgiveness, no strife... and so relaxation, and praise.

This begins on the evening sunset of Friday, and then after sunset on the Sabbath day, or 7th day, on all your calendars. which is the Seventh Day of the Week.

I'd get a Jewish Calendar, Because in April is Passover, and Feast of Unleavened Bread, and then Feasts of First Fruits.

The feast of unleavened bread is a 7 day feast in which you eat unleavened bread with the rest of your good feast for 7 days.

These feasts all involve good eating, now, here's a hint Jesus in the Passover feast, Jesus represents the hidden unleavened bread, in that feast.

So those above are three feasts in April, that spans exactly 12days, I'll list the 4 following feasts below. The manners and the style of keeping these three feasts, I'd youtube and study it from the scriptures, Paul the apostle kept this feast in this way:

1Co_5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Paul is saying that when you keep the feast do it in the spirit of love, and care for one another; and in thanks giving knowing the great free gift we've received in the LORD, even our salvation.

Because if we're ungrateful, and we're not thankful, unappreciative, it doesn't help the body of Christ, and one will grieve the spirit, and we'll end up under the power of the flesh, and we see what good that does, so if anyone does that, because some of these feasts can be had in groups; Paul says:

Jud_1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit wilts, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

So Paul was a little kicked by that.

We go on,

Ok sir Al foster, here's the 2nd installment:

So we as believers, are to keep the law of Moses, as it is our culture as believers.

Even the new covenant in Jerimiah 31:31-33, says nothing about changing the law, the
only new thing about the covenant mentioned in scripture is its location, that it would be relocated on our hearts rather than just on stones as handed down to Moses for us; as it states here:

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:
Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jer 31:33 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

Now then, since we as believers have the spirit of Jesus Christ in our hearts, as it states: Gal_4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

And the law of Moses written on our hearts, the written law to keep for recollection in reference, but we also receive the Holy Spirit of Truth, to help us with all of our Christian culture, and in keeping the commandments which Jesus Christ our Lord; wherewith has commanded us.

Thus we have an inside strength, which we never had before, and could not fathom living like this for God.

Fore we are more than able through the Spirit of Truth, who comforts us to do these things with great joy, not as though we were alone in our lives trying to do them, as before; stumbling over them as we served the rule of sin and death.

Therefore, our culture that is from God, the law and those awesome feasts spoken of in chapter Lev 23. are thus most excellent.

Many say "but, but aren't those laws only for the Jews?" NO! God forbid, because the word says:

Lev_24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.

Num_15:16 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourns with you.

Therefore our Heavenly Father says we have one law, and one manner, not two?

Therefore, all those good laws didn't belong exclusively to the Jews, because those laws didn't originate from the Jews, but as the word of God says they are His laws, which he originated for the world to follow, and He gave those laws to them, in order that they would intern give them to the believing world: Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

"Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations(Meetings), even these are my feasts."

Hello Al foster,

I think I've got an answer for you on your question there, brother, but it'll be in maybe 3parts, thats ok, heres the first 3rd:

I read what you were getting at and I couldn't help but to notice that issue of the sacrifices have come up, the understanding is that as Moses received the pattern of the temple of God in Heaven, which Moses made the temple according to the pattern of the temple of God in heaven, which pattern God gave to Moses: see: Exo_25:9 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
Exo_25:40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
Num_8:4 And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according unto the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.

That said, we cam safely conclude that Jesus if our priest, as it says there is one mediator between God and man, Thus the part of the law pertaining to High Priestly duties are presently being done by Yeshua,/Jesus Christ.

The non sacrificial part or the law which we are to keep are the rest of the laws, this is our culture as believers, as Jesus states, states, near the end of his ministry, clearly in Matthew 23

Mat 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
Mat 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
Mat 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

However, in the original book of Matthew in Hebrew, has one translation modification, in the 3rd verse, and that is, "what ever 'he' bids you observe,"

You're probably asking your self, why is that such a big deal, "whatever they bid you" vs. What ever he bids you"

That error has occurred in the translation from the Hebrew to Greek, and why that is important is this,

The Pharisees, have added over 60,000 new laws, therefore, they are much more than the original 613 laws of Moses, and nearly half of those laws are for the High Priestly duties, therefore, that number drops down significantly to roughly 300+or -, as Christ fulfills those. Thus it is very fortunate that we have this understanding because can you imagine if we'd all had to swim through all those additional laws which Jesus disqualified as commandments of men:

Mar 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

*Here, Jesus mentioned the contradiction of the LORD'S Traditions, our traditions are the laws made for us by God, through Moses.

Mar 7:10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
Mar 7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
Mar 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

Obviously Jesus decried the practice of the Pharisees, which worked to nullify the simple commandments of YHWH.

And Paul understood our culture as believers, in Christ was keeping the commandments as he states in his infatic ask and answer statement:

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

Therefore indeed we establish the law in our daily lives, he was following the instructions of Christ whom stated his intentions regarding the law at the beginning of his ministry: concerning the law and the prophets in Matthew 5:17

Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore, if anyone teaches that we can break the commandments, or that we're not under the law of God, as Jesus and Paul clearly holds, the same is least in the Kingdom of God.
