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

Here's Why We Are Called THE WAY

 Key Scriptures

-Blessed are the perfect in THE WAY, Who walk in THE TORAH of יהוה! (Psalms 119:1)

- יהושע said to him, “I am THE WAY, and the Truth, and the Life.. (John 14:6)

-(Paul) asked from him letters to the congregations of Dammeseq, so that if he found any who were of THE WAY, whether men or women, to bring them bound to Yerushalayim. (Act 9:2)

So, what is THE WAY and why is it so important? Why were the early followers of Yeshua also called THE WAY?

THE WAY is a word that is used to describe the Father's commandments that His Son taught us to obey. THE WAY is actually another code word used all over Scripture. All scripture from start to finish is tied and linked together by a series of words that very specifically describe 2 things. When we are allowed to see this, His word becomes even more exciting.

Scripture defines itself and isn't left up to us. We have to find the clear definitions that are plainly stated in several places. 

The following verses are a small part of a hundred plus verses that specifically describe the law of Moses as THE WAY of Elohim. HIS WAY is His instructions to man progressively outlined from the beginning.

-Blessed are the perfect in THE WAY, Who walk in THE TORAH of יהוה! (Psalms 119:1)

-But you, you have turned from THE WAY, you have caused many to stumble in THE TORAH. (Mal 2:8)
 
There are several witnesses that testify in scripture that Yeshua taught THE WAY of His Father's commandments. This is recorded in scripture for a very specific reason. It confirms what the Savior said and did. And why He referred to Himself as THE WAY in John 14:6. 

We are supposed to follow His example. That is what His people do. They do EXACTLY as He said and did just like He taught us and also gave us an example to follow. We are to teach THE WAY of Elohim which is the Law of Moses. He taught THE WAY of His Father. He taught His Father's commandments. All of them. And He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. (Heb 13:8)

-Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach THE WAY of Elohim in truth, and it does not concern You about anyone, for You are not partial to any man. (Matt 22:16)

- And when they came, they said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and it does not concern You about anyone, for You are not partial to any, but teach THE WAY of Elohim in truth. (Mark 12:14)

-So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You are not partial to any, but teach THE WAY of Elohim truly. (Luk 20:21)

Two things are very clearly and directly described and defined as THE WAY. The Torah of our Creator and the Messiah Yeshua. That's it. It's what Yisrael, His chosen people are doing as described all throughout Scripture from start to finish. They obey the commandments of Elohim and they have the belief and witness of the Messiah. (Rev 12:17, 14:12) 

This is why THE WAY is referenced all throughout the book of Acts. Because the followers of the Savior obey the law of Moses and believe in the Messiah. If we don't, then we are not followers of the Messiah even though we may think or say we are.

This is THE WAY of our Heavenly Father, and His Son, and their people. It doesn't matter if we understand this, ignore it or believe it doesn't apply to us. It is who He is and anyone that is wise will embrace HIS WAYS which is described very clearly in His word starting in Genesis.

This is all very simple and doesn't take a lot of thought. It's HIS WAY versus man's way that we have created for ourselves. HIS WAY never changes from beginning to end because His way is perfect, righteous, set apart, good and true. As described everywhere in scripture. There never will be any reason to change HIS WAY because it is perfect and there is no reason to ever alter what's perfect. We do not improve upon perfection.

We see that THE WAY is everywhere in scripture. In Acts, we see Paul hunting and capturing men and women of THE WAY and persecuting them. Then he said he became a part of THE WAY.

There are lots of different names that scripture calls Yisrael. THE WAY is what they are specifically called in Acts as a witness to the world that they follow the commandments of Elohim and the Messiah.

Our Creator is in the process of restoring HIS WAY as He did in Yeshua's day. HIS WAY is His Torah, His instructions for His creation, that we seem to want to avoid and say they don't apply to us.

HIS WAY, like it or not, means to walk and live by His laws. Otherwise, we are deciding to go our own way that doesn't lead us towards Him, His blessings and life.

We call ourselves THE WAY because it is directly pointing to both the Messiah and the Torah. They are both very clearly described as THE WAY. It's the Father's WAY, that Moses, Yeshua, Paul and everybody else taught. It refers to the path, road, or the direction we take. The right road we take is obedience to His instructions which are for our own good so things go well for us.

It's a lifestyle, a walk that follows the path back to Him described for us in His instructions. It's THE WAY that leads back to the tree of life. 

-and He drove the man out. And He placed keruḇim at the east of the garden of Ěḏen, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard THE WAY to the tree of life. (Gen 3:24)

THE WAY is the same way it's always been from Genesis to Revelation. It's nothing new. The way is to follow His commandments. It's why Adam and Eve got us into this mess in the first place. It's why and how we will get back out of this mess and have access to the tree of life and the gates of the Kingdom city.

-Blessed are those DOING HIS COMMANDS, so that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of life, and to enter through the gates into the city. (Rev 22:14)

We see that Paul persecuted THE WAY in the book of Acts. 

-(Paul) asked from him letters to the congregations of Dammeseq, so that if he found any who were of THE WAY, whether men or women, to bring them bound to Yerushalayim. (Act 9:2)

-who (Paul) persecuted THIS WAY to the death, binding and delivering up into prisons both men and women… (Acts 22:4)

Then Paul joined and became a part of THE WAY. He stated that THE WAY was what Moses and the prophets taught, and that THE WAY is linked to the resurrection and eternal life.

-And this I (Paul) confess to you, that according to THE WAY which they call a SECT, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing all that has been written in THE TORAH and in the Prophets, having an expectation in Elohim, which they themselves also wait for, that there is to be a resurrection of the dead, both of the righteous and the unrighteous. (Acts 24:14-15)

-And we think it right to hear from you (Paul) what you think, for indeed, concerning THIS SECT, we know that it is spoken against everywhere. (Act 28:22)

We see Paul promoting THE WAY here with Felix.

-And having heard this, having known more exactly about THE WAY, Felix put them off, saying, “When Lysias the commander comes down, I shall decide your case. (Acts 24:22)

Scripture is loaded with what we call codewords. It's a basic literary technique using a very simple word association that defines what things mean in other verses. After any particular word has been defined as something, any other use of that word is referring back to the same thing. We will be lost if we are unaware of these scriptural definitions.

There is a very large number of codewords that point to only 2 things...the Torah (Law of Moses) and the Messiah. For instance, our Savior says…

- יהושע said to him, “I am THE WAY, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

The Messiah Yeshua proclaimed that He was THE WAY. Why? Because He was. What He said and did is what we are to say and do. The Torah of His Father is what He said and did.

His teaching and example are THE WAY. What was His teaching and example? He taught everyone to live by EVERY WORD of His Father's commandments. 

-It has been written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of יהוה. (Matt 4:4)

This is THE WAY of the Father, Son, Paul, Peter, James, John and anyone else that is a true follower described as THE WAY. 

THE WAY is what scripture calls Yisrael. Yisrael is the remnant that is doing 2 things. THE WAY and the set apart ones are guarding, keeping or obeying the commandments of Elohim and the belief and witness of the Messiah. 

-Blessed are the perfect in THE WAY, Who walk in the Torah of יהוה! (Psalms 119:1)

The Father and the Son and their message, do not change. They are consistently consistent. THE WAY is the way it's always been. It is Their instructions to all mankind. It is the same message given through Moses, the Prophets and Yeshua. 

-And there shall be a highway, and a way, and it shall be called “THE WAY of Set-apartness.” The unclean does not pass over it, but it is for those who walk THE WAY, and no fools wander on it. (Isaiah 35:8)

YOUR WAY, O Elohim, is in Set-apartness; Who is a great Ěl like Elohim? (Psalms 77:13)

-For they would not walk in HIS WAYS, and they did not obey HIS TORAH (Isaiah 42:24)

-You shall also say to this people, ‘Thus said יהוה, “See, I set before you THE WAY of LIFE and the way of death (Jer 21:8).

This whole thing is about our Fathers way which is His character, His nature and His very essence. It's who He is. He is a wonderful, loving Father who wants His children to do well so He instructs them in THE WAY they should go. It's HIS WAY and He made us in His image, but we can choose to rebel and go our own way.

His instructions are for our own good so things go well for us. So, we can live with blessings and life and not curses and death.

-Walk in all THE WAYS which יהוה your Elohim has commanded you, so that you live and it be well with you. (Deut 5:33)

There are multiple references to the way in the book of Acts. It's all pointing to the same thing. Obedience to the Father's instructions and belief in the Messiah.

-But when some were hardened and did not believe, speaking evil of THE WAY before the crowd, he (Paul) withdrew from them and separated the taught ones...(Acts 19:9)

-And about that time there came to be a great commotion about THE WAY. (Acts 19:23)

-O son of the devil, filled with all deceit and all recklessness, you enemy of all righteousness, shall you not cease perverting the STRAIGHT WAYS of יהוה? (Acts 13:10)

-Having followed Sha’ul and us, she cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High Elohim, who proclaim to us THE WAY of deliverance. (Acts 16:17)

This one had been instructed in THE WAY of the Master. And being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching the matters ABOUT THE MASTER EXACTLY...they took him aside and explained to him THE WAY of Elohim more exactly. (Acts 18:25-26)

The word Christian was actually a derogatory term that the Pagans used to ridicule THE WAY as Messianics which amounted to being mocked as "anointed ones or oily ones". But they did not call themselves Christians. 

In fact the word Christ originates from what the Pagans called their gods. 

Notice that they were first called Christians at Antioch. But it does not ever say they called themselves that. They called themselves THE WAY.

-And the taught ones were called ‘messianists’ (Christians) first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26)

-And Agrippa said to Sha’ul, “With a little you might persuade me to become a ‘messianist’!” (Christian) (Acts 26:28)

Peter clearly shows the context here as suffering by being labeled in such a way.

-If you are reproached for the Name of Messiah, you are blessed, because the Spirit of esteem and of Elohim rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is praised. (1 Peter 4:14)

-But if one suffers being ‘messianist’ (Christian), let him not be ashamed, but let him esteem Elohim in this matter. (1 Peter 4:16)

The accurate description used in scripture to describe the followers of Yeshua was clearly THE WAY. This is what our Creator described as following His instructions. We might want to pay close attention to what He is trying to say to us.

-And they sing the song of Mosheh the servant of Elohim, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvellous are Your works, יהוה Ěl Shaddai! Righteous and true are YOUR WAYS, O Sovereign of the set-apart ones! (Rev 15:3)

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,

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

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
