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

One Small Word That Makes A Big Difference

Key Scripture

Lev 18:4-5 Do My right-rulings and guard My laws, to walk in them. I am יהוה your Elohim. 5 ‘And you shall guard My laws and My right-rulings, which a MAN does and LIVES by them. I am יהוה.


Matt 4:4 But He answering, said, “It has been written, MAN shall not LIVE by bread alone, but BY EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of יהוה. (Deut 8:3)


Rom 7:1 Or do you not know, brothers – for I speak to those knowing the Torah – that the Torah rules over a MAN as long as he lives?

There is a very simple but extremely interesting word that is used all throughout scripture. The word MAN is used on purpose and very specifically to communicate that everyone is expected to do what is being asked in the particular passage. It covers both Jew and Gentile.


The Hebrew word for MAN is ADAM. It literally means man, mankind or human being. It's used everywhere in His word and it's our Creator's way of telling us that His instructions are intended for everyone. And we are His people if we are obeying His commandments and we are not His people if we don't. What's sad is we are taught to say that His instructions don't even apply to us.


When we examine the word closely, we see that it transcends and completely destroys the false teaching that there are 2 separate race based laws for Jews and Gentiles. The word MAN simply means all mankind as in everyone. Most people miss this. We can't get around it but that's exactly what we are being taught to do.


Mark 2:27-28 And He said to them, “THE SABBATH WAS MADE FOR MAN, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 “So the Son of Aḏam is also Master of the Sabbath.”


For instance, the Savior said that the Sabbath was MADE FOR MAN. We weren't made for it. It was created for us. It was created for MAN as in all mankind. It's a very simple message for anyone that loves the truth of the Messiah. False teachers try to twist and distort this verse into just the opposite of what our Savior was teaching us. He kept the Sabbath and said He was Master of it and not any other day. And we are supposed to follow His teaching and example. Or we can decide to live in rejection of His teaching as most people do.


Gen 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their array. 2 And in the seventh day Elohim completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. 3 And Elohim BLESSED THE SEVENTH DAY and SET IT APART, because on it He rested from all His work which Elohim in creating had made.


The Messiah is telling us that all mankind is to observe the Sabbath that was created for us in the very 1st week as recorded in Genesis. By the way, there were no such things as Jews or Gentiles at this point. Just in case someone wants to say it was created as a law only for Hebrews.


The Greek for MADE means it was literally CAUSED TO BE. It was caused to be or created for everyone to keep as a memorial of creation. A reminder of who we are and who our Creator is and where we came from. Satan wants to destroy this connection and relationship with our Creator and he has done a great job of doing just that.


The Greek word ANTHROPOS is translated as MAN and literally means a human being, whether male or female generically, to include all human individuals. It's the exact equivalent of the Hebrew word.


So, now we know that our Creator is very specifically telling us that He is instructing everyone to obey what He is telling us to obey when we see the word MAN in the verse. This isn't very complicated and shouldn't take a lot of thought. We seem to want to complicate things because he certainly didn't.


From the very beginning, we have been coming up with unique ways to not do what our Creator has asked us to do. It started with Adam and Eve and continues until today. 


Satan lied to Eve by twisting and distorting the word of Elohim. And we all know how that ended. 


Gen 2:17 but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of it you shall certainly die.”


Gen 3:4 And the naḥash said to the woman, “You shall certainly NOT die.


Satan is doing the exact same thing to us today because it still works. And he knows that man's disobedience to the Creator's instructions separate us from Him and His blessings and life. Satan can't get to the Creator so he is attacking His creation that He loves. His time is short and he is trying to bring us down with Him. And He is using everything he can to deceive us into believing that we are actually doing the right thing by ignoring the will and ways of our maker and life giver. He has us thinking that His rules don't even apply to us.


One of Satan's favorite schemes is to trick us into believing there are 2 different sets of race based laws. As if there's one set of rules for Jews and a different set of rules for Gentiles. By the way, that would actually be racist. That's ridiculous and directly contradicts scripture on multiple levels.


In the next few verses, we see the same MAN message theme that is repeated all over scripture. We clearly see that our Creator is commanding everyone, both Jew and Gentile, to obey His commandments. Strangers and foreigners are the same thing as Gentiles. The Greek word ethnos is translated as Gentile but is more accurately translated as Nations or ethnicity. The idea has to do with anyone outside the Hebrew race. 


Exodus 12:49 There is ONE TORAH for the native-born and for the stranger (Gentile) who sojourns among you.”


Num 9:14 And when a stranger sojourns among you, then he shall perform the Pĕsaḥ of יהוה. He shall do so according to the law of the Pĕsaḥ and according to its right-ruling. You have ONE LAW, both for the stranger and the native of the land.’ ”


Numbers 15:15-16 ONE LAW is for you of the assembly and for the stranger who sojourns with you – a law forever throughout your generations. As you are, so is the stranger before יהוה. 16 ONE TORAH and one right-ruling is for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.


Numbers 15:29 For him who does whatever by mistake there is ONE TORAH, both for him who is native among the children of Yisra’ĕl and for the stranger who sojourns in their midst.


Peter is teaching that there is only one law for everyone. No distinction means no difference and no difference means no difference. Zero. Zilch. Our Creator's instructions are given to all mankind. There is only one set of rules. Anything else is an absurd lie authored by the evil one who seeks to decieve and destroy us.


Acts 15:9 and made NO DISTINCTION between us (Jews) and them (Gentiles), cleansing their hearts by belief.


Paul repeats the same one law for everyone teaching that everyone else is teaching. At some point, we need to understand that our religious leaders are lying to us.


Rom 10:12 Because there is NO DISTINCTION between Yehuḏi and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him.


Yisrael is inclusive of everyone that obeys His commandments and believes in the coming Messiah. Nothing has ever changed. But we're told these rules don't apply to us so we can just ignore him. But that's a very serious mistake.


And Satan knows that this makes us hostile enemies of our Creator. And we underestimate the power of Satan to deceive us. We underestimate how much he hates us and wants to kill us, steal our blessings and life and destroy us and our families and our children. (John 10:10)


Rom 8:7 Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Elohim, for (because) it does not subject itself to the Torah of Elohim, neither indeed is it able,


There was a mixed multitude that came out of Egypt with Yisrael. They are the chosen nation that He developed through Abraham, his beloved, who obeyed His instructions. 


Exodus 12:38 And a MIXED MULTITUDE went up with them too, also flocks and herds, very much livestock.


This was a mixed multitude of races that left Egypt together and we're saved together. This is a picture of things to come. The Pharaohs had been making slaves from multiple different people they conquered. Jews weren't the only ones. They saw the power of our Creator and wanted to be a part of the children of Yisrael along with the blessings of protection and provision.  Anyone that wanted to join them in trusting and obeying Elohim was welcome. The same holds true today.


Now, we know that we're being lied to by our religious leaders. And to really drive this point home, we see the word MAN used all throughout scripture. Why? Because He is referring to all MANKIND and He wants everyone to come to understand the wisdom, knowledge and understanding He gives all mankind in the Torah. It's for our own good so things will go well for us. It's what is right and what is good.


Deut 6:17-18 Diligently guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim, and His witnesses, and His laws which He has commanded you. 18 “And you shall do what is RIGHT and GOOD in the eyes of יהוה, THAT IT MIGHT BE WELL WITH YOU…


We simply have a much better life both now and in the future if we live by every word of our Father's instructions. He made us and knows what is best for us. We need to understand these instructions from our Father are given to MAN to protect and provide for us. They are a blessing and not a curse as we are told.


We see that Paul, in Romans and Galatians, is quoting directly from Moses and Ezekiel in the Torah. It doesn't suddenly mean something totally different than it originally did. He is teaching us to obey the Torah by directly quoting the Torah. We have eternal life as a part of the blessings of the Torah.


Rom 10:5 For Mosheh writes about the righteousness which is of the Torah, “The MAN who does these shall LIVE by them.” (Lev. 18:5)


Galatians 3:12 And the Torah is not of belief, but “The MAN who does them shall LIVE by them.” (Lev. 18:5)


Lev 18:4-5 Do My right-rulings and guard My laws, to walk in them. I am יהוה your Elohim. 5 ‘And you shall guard My laws and My right-rulings, which a MAN does and LIVES by them. I am יהוה.


Ezekiel 20:11-12 And I gave them My laws and showed them My right-rulings, ‘which, if a MAN does, he shall LIVE by them.’ 12 “And I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, to know that I am יהוה who sets them apart.


And we see in this next verse that our Creator is speaking about ANY MAN, Jew or Gentile (stranger, foreigner). Scripture describes the truth. We just have to be willing to search it out and accept what it plainly and clearly says.


Lev 17:13 And ANY MAN from the children of Yisra’ĕl, or from the strangers who sojourn among you, who hunts and catches any beast or bird, which is eaten, shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust,


There never had been 2 different sets of rules. And there never will be. But, there are 2 different sets of consequences based on our acceptance or rejection of the Torah.


There is a triple meaning to the word LIVE. We LIVE as in our behavior as we walk in obedience as we live life. Also, we are promised a longer physical life when we obey the Torah. And to top it off, we are promised eternal LIFE if we live by the Torah. Our Creator's message is the same consistent message from Moses, the Messiah and Paul.


Deut 30:19 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,


This summary is at the end of the Torah. It's the same message of LIFE. We have life because of our obedience to the Torah. And why our Savior said that he is the way, the truth and the LIFE because he obeyed the Torah and commanded us to follow His example of obedience. (John 14:6) If we are true followers of Him then we will do what He did.


Paul was a true follower and why Paul said to imitate him as he imitated the Messiah. (1Cor 11:1, 4:16-17) So, we would expect to see the exact same teaching from the Messiah Yeshua who said to LIVE by every word of the Torah. And we see it listed in 2 different books. Repetition of this story tells us the extreme importance of this particular teaching. 


Matt 4:4 But He answering, said, “It has been written, MAN shall not LIVE by bread alone, but BY EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of יהוה. (Deut 8:3)


Luke 4:4 But יהושע answered him, saying, “It has been written, MAN shall not LIVE by bread alone, but BY EVERY WORD of Elohim. (Deut 8:3)


And He quotes directly from the truth of the Torah, just in case we're unsure that He is commanding us to live by every word of the Law of Moses. 


Deut 8:3 ...to make you know that MAN does not LIVE by bread alone, but BY EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of יהוה.


Paul continues the same message in Romans. What part of this next verse do we not understand? He uses the key word MAN again. It's not by mistake. He is teaching that everyone is subject to the Torah their whole life. Paul is teaching the exact same thing that the Messiah is teaching. Go figure. 


Rom 7:1 Or do you not know, brothers – for I speak to those knowing the Torah – that the Torah rules over a MAN as long as he lives?


Paul continues to say to Timothy that the Torah is good for ANYONE that obeys it lawfully in accordance with what it instructs. The Law of Moses wasn't written for the righteous person. It was written down for the unrighteous person which includes everyone except the Messiah Yeshua who was perfect according to the Torah. If you ever LIED or sinned in any way, then the Torah applies to you and will judge and condemn us on the day of judgement.


1 Tim 1:8-10 And we know that the Torah is good if ONE uses it legitimately, 9 knowing this: that Torah is not laid down for a righteous being, but for the lawless and unruly, for the wicked and for sinners, for the wrong-doers and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for those who whore, for sodomites, for kidnappers, FOR LIARS, for perjurers, and for whatever else that is contrary to sound teaching,


It's the same consistent message and theme that Solomon is teaching in all his wisdom. The whole duty of ALL MANKIND is to obey the Torah. This is the conclusion of all life and judgement. 


Ecc 12:13-14 Let us hear the conclusion of the entire matter: Fear Elohim and guard His commands, for this applies to ALL MANKIND. For Elohim shall bring every work into right-ruling (judgement), including all that is hidden, whether good or whether evil.


We see this same theme about obedience to the Torah and the Sabbath in the world to come. The words ALL FLESH means the same thing as MAN or all MANKIND.


Isaiah 66:22-23 For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make stand before Me,” declares יהוה, “so your seed and your name shall stand. 23 “And it shall be that from New Moon to New Moon, and from SABBATH TO SABBATH, ALL FLESH shall come to worship before Me,” declares יהוה.


Again, we see the word MAN in the Torah. Blessed is any man that keeps the Sabbath. This is exactly what the Messiah is saying in Mark 2:27 as discussed above. 


Isaiah 56:1-2 Thus said יהוה, “Guard right-ruling, and do RIGHTEOUSNESS, for near is My deliverance to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. 2 “ BLESSED IS THE MAN who does this, and the son of man who becomes strong in it, GUARDING THE SABBATH lest he profane it, and guarding his hand from doing any evil.


Just a few verses later, we see that the Gentiles (foreigner, stranger, nations) are keeping the Sabbath. If we examine the book of Acts closely and do the math, we see that Paul kept the Sabbath day with both Jews and Gentiles 200 plus times. 


Isaiah 56:6 Also the sons of the FOREIGNER who join themselves to יהוה, to serve Him, and to love the Name of יהוה, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and are holding onto My covenant


The WRONG, in this next verse, is inclusive of anyone that has decided that the Torah doesn't apply to them. It's the same theme all throughout scripture, everyone is expected to obey the Law of Moses.


Ezekiel 18:21 But the WRONG, if he turns from all his sins which he has done, and he shall guard all My laws, and shall do right-ruling and righteousness, he shall certainly LIVE, he shall not die.


Again, we see the word MAN used in the Torah. It's referring to everyone. Jew and Gentile alike. The following is a very special passage that is prophesying about the Messiah. We see this restated in Acts 3 by Peter and Acts 7 by Stephen. It's a very serious warning about disobedience to the Savior's teaching. And He taught us to live by every word of the Torah.


Deut 18:18-19 I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I SHALL PUT MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be, the MAN who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him.


The Father put His words in the Son's mouth. It's the same truth of the Torah that He put in all His Prophets mouth. We also see that the Torah that the Messiah is teaching applies to MAN, as in all mankind, and we will all be held accountable to His teaching and example He gave us.


We can do this all day long. It never ends. It's one simple message from beginning to end. Obey the Torah. Obey the Messiah. Keep His Sabbaths. Proclaim, exalt and praise the name of our Creator. Live by every word that we possibly can. 


Matt 4:17 From that time יהושע began to proclaim and to say, “Repent, for the reign of the heavens has drawn near.”


Yeshua is telling us to repent and return to the Torah just like the Prodigal Son did. (Luke 15) He returned to his Father who was eager to run to Him and embrace Him and bring him back into the family and the blessings of the House. But there are rules for the house and we're in very serious trouble if we don't think they apply to us.


Next, let's pay close attention to the word WHOEVER in our Savior's teaching on the sermon on the mount. Whoever means whoever and is referring to everyone. 


Matt 5:19 WHOEVER, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches MEN so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.


Again, in the Greek language the word MEN above literally means human being, whether male or female generically, to include all human individuals.


We can continue to ignore our Savior's teaching and example but we must understand that these are the very words that will judge us on the last day and will remain a witness against us.


John 12:48-50 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My Words, has one who judges him: THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN SHALL JUDGE HIM IN THE LAST DAY. 49 “Because I spoke not from Myself, but the Father who sent Me has given Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 “And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, as the Father has said to Me, so I speak.”


Our Savior is saying the exact same thing from the beginning of His ministry to the very end.


Rev 22:14 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.


This isn't complicated. We have been deceived, by our religious leaders, into believing that we don't have to actually follow the Messiah's teaching and example. He taught us to live by every word of the Torah which is the Law of Moses. 


We are taught to ignore the Savior and follow a twisted distorted version of Paul's writings. These are the lies we inherit.


It's a time of the great awakening. It's a time when people are starting to think for themselves. It's a time where we start to see that we are on a dangerous path. Because Yeshua is the way and we aren't following the way.


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

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
