Top 5 Reasons Why We Are Being Lied To About Paul

Key Points Understanding the truth about Paul is very simple. But we have to understand the law of Moses first. This is the main reason we go wrong. Because Paul is referring back to it and is saying the same thing 100 times in 100 different ways. It all goes back to the Torah. But we are not being taught this because it destroys the false teachers narrative. Paul is very misunderstood and his writings are twisted and distorted, by untaught people, into an anti-Messiah, lawless message that Peter warned us about (2 Peter 2:2:1-3, 3:16-17). (1) In the last 8 chapters of Acts, Paul continually and passionately denies teaching against the law, in multiple ways, in several courts. (Acts 24:13-14, 25:7-8). This is completely ignored by false teachers because it doesn't fit the false narrative that he taught us not to obey the law. (2) Paul, along with the witnesses of James and a large group of Jerusalem elders, strongly deny the false accusations that he is doing or teaching anything a

What Is The Curse Of The Law?

Key Points


-Paul also calls the law set-apart, righteous and good (Rom 7:12)? Is Paul confused? Because a curse is an extremely different thing.


-Our Savior redeemed us from the curse OF the law (Gal 3:13). Notice he didn't say the law IS a curse. That's what false teachers say but that's not what the verse says.


-Paul is actually saying that the law has curses in it, as a penalty for our disobedience to it as the law describes. A very small portion of the law (Deut 27-28) contains curses and that is what our Savior became for us and set us free from the penalty (curse) of the law.


-It's the same thing Paul is saying 100 different times in a 100 different ways. You are FREED FROM and NOT UNDER (Rom 6:14) the death penalty (curse) OF the law. We are not under the curse of death anymore. We are freed from the curse now, as outlined in a small part of the law. 


-The freedom in Christ (Gal 5:1) we have is that Yeshua became the curse (death penalty) that we deserved because of our sin. Because of our transgression of the law (1 John 3:4-8).


Deeper Study


Is Paul teaching us that the law is a curse and it should be avoided? If he is, then He is completely contradicting the Father, the Son and himself. Everywhere.


A major theme of Galatians is about non-believing Hebrews that were trying to declare themselves righteous by their own imperfect obedience to the Torah and were rejecting the Messiah's offer of perfection and grace. And they were cutting themselves off from the Savior and fallen from grace (Gal 5:4). Not because they were trying to obey the Torah but because they refused to accept the Savior. That meant they still remained under the curse OF the law as outlined for imperfect obedience to the Torah (Deut 6:25, James 2:10).


-Messiah redeemed us from the curse OF the Torah, having become a curse for us – for it has been written (Deu. 21:23), “Cursed is everyone who hangs upon a tree.” (Gal 3:13)


Let's take a much closer look at it. But, we have to study ALL the scriptures and not just isolate this one verse as the false teachers want us to. We have to ask, does this interpretation contradict other scripture?


-CURSED is he who does NOT ESTABLISH the Words of this Torah...(Deut 27:26, GAL 3:10).


We are cursed because we didn't and Yeshua became this curse for those that trust in Him and obey the Torah like He did. That was and still is His teaching and example for us to follow. And He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow (Heb 13:8).


The CURSE of DEATH is outlined in this Torah summary at the end of it.


-See, I have set before you today life and good, and DEATH and evil (Deut 30:15).


-...I have set before you life and DEATH, the blessing and the CURSE. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed (Deut 30:19).


Paul is clearly referring back to the Torah in Deuteronomy. We have not established the Torah (Law) as Paul said in Romans. 


-Do we then nullify the Torah through the belief? Let it not be! On the contrary, we ESTABLISH (uphold) the Torah (Rom 3:31).


Yeshua redeemed and saved us from the curse OF the law that we earned because the wages of our sin is death (Rom 6:23).  Because we do not submit to the Torah and become hostile towards our Creator (Rom 8:7). And we are not able to, because we have a sinful, fleshly, carnal mind.


Notice that Paul didn't say the law IS a curse (Gal 3:13). That's what false teachers say but that's not what the verse says.


What's the curse OF the law? If you read our Father's instructions, you instantly understand it's the DEATH PENALTY because of our sin and rebellion to our Creator's law and what our Savior saved us from. He became the curse (of death) for us and our sin as outlined in the law. He took our place and became our substitute and took our punishment of death (curse) as outlined in the law. It's the same teaching that's described all over Scripture.


The law clearly has curses in it. It also has blessings in it too. But why would Paul call it a curse? He wouldn't and he didn't. 


Does that even make sense? Why would the Father's teaching and instructions (the law) that Paul calls set-apart, righteous and good be a curse (Rom 7:12)? Is Paul confused? Obviously, those are very different things. Is the law a righteous curse? That doesn't make sense either, does it?


Paul is actually saying that the law has curses in it, as a penalty for our disobedience to it as the law describes. A very small portion of the law contains curses and that is what our Savior became for us and set us free from. 


The freedom in Christ we have is that Yeshua became the curse (death penalty) that we deserved because of our sin. And sin is described as transgression of the law of Moses (1 John 3:4-8). 


He sets us free from the death penalty (curse) we deserve. The curses of the law are a small part of it, not the whole law itself. Our Savior became the part of the law that condemns us to death (the curse) for breaking it. Because we refuse to submit to it and for the most part, continue to live in defiance to it. And we continue to live in sin and are deceived into believing we aren't.


We are saved from the punishment of the law, not obedience to it. This is a very simple message that is twisted and distorted into something it's not. And Satan is behind it all and he uses false teachers to teach his lies that the law is a curse and Yeshua set us free from it. That's ridiculous because that message would completely contradict our Savior's whole life and His whole message from beginning to end, from Matthew 4:4 to Revelation 22:14. 


We have to start thinking for ourselves. Because we are embracing what is clearly impossible to be true and obviously contradictory to the whole of scripture. And it is in defiant rebellion and rejection of both the Father and the Son's teaching to live by every word (Deut 8:3, Matt 4:4).


We are set free from the condemnation (curse) of the law. We are not under the death penalty (curse) of the law (Rom 8:1-2). Because we have been saved from the death penalty. We have been saved from the curse. It's not any more complicated than that.


Again, Paul is referencing this extremely important summary at the end of the law of our Creator… "I set before you life and death, the blessing and the CURSE. Choose life so you will live". (Deut 30:19)  The blessings are for obedience and the curses are for disobedience as detailed for us in the preceding chapters 27-28. 


-See, I set before you the way of life and the way of death (Jer 21:8).


He sets before us the way of life and the way of death (Jer 21:8). Life comes through obedience to the Torah as our Savior so very clearly teaches (Matt 19:17). Death (the curse) comes with willful disobedience which is where most people are (Matt 7:13-14).


We chose the curse of death and Yeshua became that curse for us and gave us a second chance. He gave us a great big pardon for our crimes against the law. Not so that we could be set free and go on another crime spree breaking the law again. That would mock and insult Him and His great sacrifice (Heb 10:26-31). 


But that's what we are doing. We are taught to do it. Not by Yeshua, but by false teachers who we have decided to follow instead of our Savior's teaching and example.


Our Creator is asking us to choose obedience, to His instructions, that brings blessings and life, and not disobedience to His instructions that brings curses and death on us. Nothing has ever changed and this is what Paul is pointing to...the life and death choice we all make. Because the wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23). He is pointing to this choice we make about disobeying the law that brings death upon us and what Yeshua saved us from but not if we continue to say it doesn't apply to us.


It's the same thing Paul is saying 100 different times in a 100 different ways. You are FREED FROM and NOT UNDER the death penalty OF the law. We are not under the curse of death anymore. We are freed from the curse now, as outlined in a small part of the law. 


Now, we are under favor (grace), because Yeshua took our punishment upon himself (Rom 6:14) He made peace with our Father because we had become hostile towards Him because we refuse to submit to His law (Rom 8:7). 


Now, there is no condemnation (Rom 8:1) for those IN Yeshua Messiah. But only those who stay IN His teaching and example. Not those that rebel and keep on breaking the law by rejecting our Savior's words that will judge us in the last days (John 12:48-50).


False teachers distort Paul's writings into an Anti-Christ message and turn him into a lawless person.  So they can follow that lawless message and justify their perverted lawless behavior.


Everything in the New Testament is telling us to obey the Father's commandments, the law. Again, from start (Matt 4:4) to finish (Rev 22:14). 


If we study and pray long enough with a great love for the truth, we will be allowed to see that there are only two changes that were prophesied to take place. There is a new high priest and a new way of atonement through Yahshua's sacrifice (Hebrews 5-10). 


Again, our Savior released us and redeemed us from the curse of death outlined very clearly in the law of Moses. We are freed from and not under the death penalty (the curse of death). We are freed from a small section of the law outlined in only 2 chapters (Deut 27-28). We are not freed from the whole law. That would be absurd and makes no sense at all. But that's what we are taught to believe and we defend it with a great passion.


Do we still think the law is a curse? Really? But is that actually true. Does that even make sense? Because that interpretation is in direct confrontation and completely contradictory to both Yeshua's and Paul's other teachings and examples.


If there is a penalty for sin, as only outlined in the law, then the law still has to be in effect. The wages of sin is death which is the curse of death (Rom 6:23) and part of the instructions of our Father in the law.  The penalty (curses) are the proper motivation to encourage us to do the righteous and good things described in the law.


We have to be extremely careful with the teachings we inherit. Because it's one thing to believe a dangerous lie and it's a totally different thing to teach and preach that lie. Beware teachers (James 3:1)


If our interpretation of a verse is clearly contradictory to other passages, then we are wrong somehow.  We always have to ask ourselves, does this interpretation contradict our Savior's teaching and example He clearly and plainly told us to follow? 


Did Paul contradict the Messiah? Can we turn Paul's message into anything other than what the Messiah said and did? No, not unless we want to sound stupid because Paul said to imitate me as I imitate the Messiah (1 Cor 4:16-17, 11:1). So, that simple statement completely destroys any false teaching that Paul is telling us, in any way, shape or form, that the law is done away with. He is the exact image and representation of the Messiah as best he could. (1 Thess 1:6)


The problem is we aren't taught to think for ourselves. We are taught to repeat the false narrative about scriptures that are distorted to mean something totally different from what our Creator is trying to say to us. And this is what Satan wants because he seeks every day to destroy us.


In the last 8 chapters of Acts, Paul denies, about 10 times, the false accusations that he is telling people not to obey the law of Moses. But nobody really reads this or they would already know the truth about Paul


The law is not a curse. It has curses in it and Yeshua saved us from the curse of death. Not the law.. The curses we bring on ourselves because of our rebellion against the hated law of Moses. And that is what Paul is talking about.


Ask ourselves this. Think on this for a moment…


Is loving Elohim with all our heart a curse? (Deut 6:5)


Is loving your neighbor as yourself a curse? (Lev 19:18)


Did Yeshua command us to live by every word of a curse? (Matt 4:4) 


Did Yeshua tell us we would be the greatest in the kingdom if we do curses and teach curses? (Matt 5:18)


Did Paul tell us it's the doers, not the hearers, of the curse that are justified? (Rom 2:13)


Did Paul tell us to uphold a curse? (Rom 3:31)


Did Paul tell us the curse is set apart, righteous and good? (Rom 7:12)


Does Paul delight in a curse? (Rom 7:22)


Did David delight in a curse? (Psalms 119:174


Did David love a curse? (Psalms 119:127)


We could go on and on.


Are we starting to get that we have inherited lies (Jer 16:19)? And there are a lot more. A whole lot more. More than you could ever possibly imagine.  And it is going to blow your mind if you keep searching and praying for the truth.


The law can unleash a curse that comes upon us if we reject it and a blessing if we embrace it. We think we should embrace it if we know what's best for us. 


We are not under and have been freed from the condemnation. Because of our Savior, we are not under the penalty, the punishment, the judgement, the curse as outlined as our wages for rejecting His 7th day Sabbath, His feast days, His dietary laws, etc.


We can repent and start remembering His 7th day Sabbath and keep it set apart by resting and worshipping Him on it as He did. Then watch as His blessings start to flow into our life like never before. We see it all the time. HalleluYah!!!


In summary, our Father's set-apart, righteous and good instructions (the law) has curses outlined in Deuteronomy chapters 27-28 as a punishment for breaking the law. The blessings and curses are good for us, as a reward or discipline, and keeps us on the right path. They give us the right motivation to do the right things and that is to obey ALL His commandments (Deut 6:25). The very definition of what righteousness is, in scripture, is to obey ALL His commandments, His instructions, the law. And why Yeshua was righteous and we are not and look to Him for our deliverance from the curse of death as only outlined in the law.


Yeshua redeemed us, and bought us back, because we sold ourselves to sin, from the curse which is the death penalty given in the law by becoming the curse (of death) for us. Paul is saying the same thing over and over in multiple ways. Yeshua paid our penalty, the curse of death we deserve. He redeemed us, He saved us, from the curse OF the law. Thank you Master Yah Yeshua. Thank you.

Mindblowing Facts: Things No One Will Tell You About Paul

Key Points -In the last 8 chapters of Acts, Paul denies teaching against the law of Moses in any way, shape or form. He repeats over and over that he is being falsely accused in multiple courts of law (Acts 21-28). This one fact, proves that we are being lied to by our religious leaders about Paul. They should know this. It's in Scripture for a reason. But, we are taught to ignore it. False teachers never bring it up or teach it because it completely destroys the false narrative they preach. -James, leader of the Jerusalem assembly, and a large group of Jerusalem elders back up Paul on this. They are very strong witnesses that Paul is being falsely accused of preaching against the law. They testify that he obeys the law of Moses and is not teaching against the law in any way (Acts 21:18-24). -Paul, in the first century, was being falsely accused, by believers of Messiah, of teaching against obedience to the law of our Creator given through Moses. We are doing the same thing today,

Myth Buster: Jews Versus Gentiles

Key Points -Our Creator says, everywhere in Scripture, there is only one set of instructions for us and that MAN, as in all mankind, is to live by every word of His instructions (Deut 8:3, Matt 4:4, Luke 4:4). -Our Creator also says he doesn't change His ways and is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow (Mal 3:4, Heb 13:8). -Moses said over and over that there are no differences between the people and there is only one law for everyone (Ex 12:49, Num 9:14, 15:14-16, 29, Lev 24:22).  -Peter says there are no differences between Jews and the Nation's (Gentiles) in the very same chapter false teachers use to say there are 2 sets of laws (Acts 15:9). -Paul himself also says, multiple times, there is no difference between us (Romans 3:22, 10:12, 1 Cor 12:13, Col 3:11).  -False teachers say Jews and Gentiles are treated differently so they can teach that our Creator's righteous instructions (Rom 7:12, Deut 6:25) don't apply to them -False teachers twist Paul's writings

Why And How We Are Being Taught Not To Obey The Messiah's Teaching

Key Points -Twisting and distorting Paul's writings is the favorite way to get us away from obeying our Savior"s plain and simple instructions. (2 Peter 3:16-17) -Peter warned us about the false teachers who would deny (contradict) the Messiah and deceive us (2 Peter 2:1-3, 19) into believing His words don't apply to us. -Yeshua said man (as in mankind), are to live "BY EVERY WORD" of His Father (Matt. 4:4, Luke 4.4 quoting the law of Moses in Deut 8:3) Anything else contradicts this teaching and is literally an anti-Messiah false teaching.  -We are taught to pick and choose what words we want to live by. Because they say if it wasn't restated in the Newer Testament that it doesn't apply to us. We are taught that His teaching was only for the Jews. But is that actually true? -On judgement day we will all bow before the Messiah ( Phil 2:9-11). We dare anyone to tell the King of the Universe that His instructions don't apply to them. We dare anyone to
