The Apostle Paul taught
The Law properly

by Rav Sha'ul

                     

In my book The Law of YHVH I am going to dive deep into the mind of the Apostle Paul.  I will explain exactly how false doctrines have crept into and have become the very foundation of The Christian Church called “The Pauline Doctrine”. 

Much of the misunderstanding comes in the way our English Bibles were translated.  The fact is, they were translated very poorly to put it mildly.  Concerning The Law of YHVH the translators failed to distinguish when Paul was talking about “the law of the land” which was the (6,200 page) Talmud and when Paul was referring to The (613) Laws of YHVH.  They translated both as ‘the law’ leaving those reading the English Bibles totally in the dark as to what Paul was saying.

When speaking of The Law of YHVH, The Apostle Paul used the Greek phrase “ho nomos” or THE Law.  The word “nomos” or just “law” is any law whatsoever or the law of the land.   When Paul added the article “ho” before “nomos” he was speaking of The Law of YHVH.  We see below that “nomos” without the article “ho” is not referring specifically to The Law of YHVH but to “any law whatsoever” or law of the land.

Nomoß - Transliterated Word Nomos

From The NAS New Testament Greek Lexicon

Strong's Number: 3551

Definition

1.       anything established, anything received by usage, a custom, a law, a command

a.       of any law whatsoever

This is not translated in our English Bibles and we are not taught these things in our Christian Churches and learning centers that train our pastors.  Therefore many times when Paul is speaking against the Takkanots or Talmud it is just mistranslated as The Law and we are taught he is speaking against The Law of YHVH.  When he is actually, like Yahusha, overturning the Rabbinical System of takkanots.

In my upcoming book The Law of YHVH; I am going to cover this and much more concerning the writing of the Apostle Paul and show he was very much a Notsri or Nazarene a keeper and protector of The Law, The Prophets, and The Messiah.  Paul carried forward the banner that both John the Baptist and Yahusha carried to re-establish The Torah and overturn Rabbinical Judaism.  That battle with the establishment, like John and Yahusha, cost Paul his life at the hands of those who benefited from the established system in Jerusalem.

 

Paul taught the transposition of The Law

In Hebrews 7:12 when speaking about the change in The Law from the Abrahamic Covenant to The Yahushaic Covenant; Paul used the word “metathesis” that was translated "change". The word translated "change in the Law" in Hebrews 7:12 is Greek word #3331 in Strong's.  If you look this word up, the proper translation and meaning of this word is NOT "change" as in “abolished” as taught by Christianity but rather it is "transferred to Heaven"... transposition.

3331

metaqesiV
metathesis
met-ath'-es-is

from metatiqhmi - metatithemi 3346; transposition, i.e. transferal (to heaven), disestablishment (of a law from physical to spiritual):--change to, removing, translation.

Paul is speaking of physical to spiritual parallels as he illustrates that the Levitical Priesthood was given to help us understand physically what Yahusha would do spiritually as High Priest before YHWH. Given the final High Priest has come and taken His position as Melchizedek... the human priesthood of Levi was TRANSFERRED over to Melchizedek and so was The Law by which the priesthood has authority to make sacrifices and offerings!  Neither was abolished.

Below is how Hebrews 7:12 should have been translated:

Hebrews 7:12

"for when there is a transfer of the priestly office (of Levi to Melchizedek), out of necessity there is ALSO A TRANSFER of the LAW of the priesthood (by which the Priesthood has authority)"

In other words, Paul is explaining that The Law that defines the priesthood and sacrifices had to be transferred with Yahusha “out of necessity”.  Yahusha would have no authority as High Priest without The Law that defines the High Priesthood.  The Law was not abolished, it was transposed.  That is what Paul is teaching in all his writings.

Now Yahusha is the Spiritual High Priest and has all the duties and authority provided him by The Law of YHWH concerning sacrifices and atonement. Both the High Priesthood and The Law were "transferred to heaven" or transposed spiritually from the physical realm to the Spiritual Realm as The Kingdom of YHVH had arrived in The Yahushaic Covenant.

Paul was demonstrating that YHVH had progressively revealed the role Yahusha would play as High Priest by first giving us the Levitical Priesthood in the Mosaic Covenant.  By studying the physical sacrifices and atonement required of the Levitical Priesthood we could come to a better understanding of the spiritual sacrifices and atonement made by Melchizedek before The Altar of YHVH in the spirit.  Then after progressively disclosing the role of Melchizedek and teaching us Spiritual Truths of the role of Melchizedek using the physical priesthood of Levi… The Law which gives the priesthood authority and the priesthood itself was TRANSPOSED to The Kingdom of YHVH

So the next time a “Christian” condemns you for keeping The Law of YHVH because you have a heart for it and makes the accusation “why don’t you perform animal sacrifices” as if to condemn you for not keeping the WHOLE LAW… be sure and let them know that Yahusha is performing the sacrifices and offerings prescribed by The Law in The Kingdom of YHVH as our Eternal High Priest.  “We” are not under The Law of the Priesthood as the priesthood has been transposed over to Yahusha, we have an Eternal High Priest very much performing those very duties on our behalf.  I’ll cover this in detail in my upcoming book The Law of YHVH.

 

The Apostle Paul – Leader of the Nazarenes, follower of Yahusha

The Apostle Paul too was a Nazarene or Notsri to guard, protect, and preserve The Law and The Prophets and The Messiah.  After Paul was arrested in Jerusalem; he was escorted to Caesarea to appear before the governor, Felix. Under the authority of Ananias, the “unauthorized” high priest, Tertullus brought the charges before Felix. Notice his accusation:

Acts 24:5-6

“For we have found this man a pestilent fellow [a plague], and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes: Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our (Rabbinical) law”.

 

The Apostle Paul’s view of The Law: Abolished or not?

I know, what about what Paul said?  He clearly said The Law has been abolished.  He said “Jesus” nailed it to the cross.  He said the Torah which came 430 years after the promise of the seed to Abraham (Gal 3:17) was given at SINAI, and was not a permanent set of binding ordinances!  Paul said the new ministration of the spirit has in fact done away with The Law!  Paul said The Law was nothing more than a “tutor” that we no longer need.  Paul said a man is justified by faith apart from The Law! and so on and so forth go the lies of The Pauline Doctrine of the Christian Church.

Don’t worry! I will answer all of those objections in my upcoming book The Law of YHVH.  In that book I will put Paul’s writing back into context and I will properly teach Paul’s writing demonstrating every one of the above statements is a lie.  I will demonstrate that The Christian Church has taken Paul’s writings out of context, translators have mishandled the Greek manuscripts, and Christianity has done everything possible to use Paul to justify abolishing The Law of YHVH.

The Apostle Paul was in fact a devout Jew, a Torah Master (Pharisee), a LAWyer, who loved The Law of YHVH and proclaimed that fact over and over and is found TEACHING others to be obedient to The Law:

Acts 21:23-24 – Paul praising those who “live in obedience to The Law”

23 so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow. 24 Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everybody will know there is no truth in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law.

Romans 2:13 – Paul declaring obedience to The Law is the definition of Righteousness

13For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in YHVH's sight, but it is those who obey The Law who will be declared righteous.

Acts 24:14 – Paul declaring his belief in The Law and Prophets

“But this I admit to you: I worship the God of our fathers in accordance with the Way (which they call a sect). I continue to believe everything that accords with the Torah and everything written in the Prophets.”

Acts 28:17 – Paul declaring he is a Torah Observant Jew

Brothers, (speaking to the local Jewish leaders) although I have done nothing against either our people or the traditions of our fathers (The Torah and Prophets)

Acts 20:16 – Paul going out of his way to celebrate the giving of The Torah

For Shaul had decided to bypass Ephesus on his voyage, in order to avoid losing time in the province of Asia, because he was hurrying to get to Jerusalem, if possible in time to celebrate Shavu’ot. (Celebrate WHAT? Paul went out of his way to celebrate Shav’uot which is THE CELEBRATION OF THE GIVING OF THE TORAH!)

Acts 22:12 – Paul going to a Torah observant Jew to be healed

A man named Hananyah, an observant follower of the Torah (why would he add that statement?) who was highly regarded by the entire Jewish community there, came to me, stood by me and said “Brother Shaul, see again!”.

Philippians 3: 4-6: Paul was a Pharisee, a Jewish Rabbi blameless in keeping The Law until he died

4. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
5. Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
6. Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in The Law, blameless.

Paul being frustrated with the Spiritual Immaturity of believers and their total lack of knowledge of The Torah/Law said this:

Hebrews 5:12

Spiritual Immaturity

12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers (of the Torah, there was no such thing as the New Testament when he wrote this), you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of YHVH (The Torah); and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness (Righteousness is Keeping The Law so “word of righteousness” is The Torah), for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age (mature Saints with minds set on Spiritual Law), that is, those who by reason of use (keeping the Feasts/Torah/Sabbaths) have their (Spiritual) senses exercised (trained through physical to spiritual parallels) to discern both good and evil (which is defined by the Law of Yahuah, good is obedience to His Commands, evil is breaking them).

Paul encouraged the church in Colossae whom he properly taught to keep the Torah.  It was a pagan community and province of Rome and they were being “judged” by their pagan neighbors for keeping The Torah.  Paul encouraged the keeping of the Kosher Laws/Feasts/New Moons/Sabbaths because in doing so they would learn Spiritual Truths through physical rehearsals and metaphors.  Paul is literally teaching the reality of learning through Physical to spiritual parallels below:

Colossians 2

16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink (as they kept Kosher Laws), or with regard to a religious festival (as they kept The Feast Cycles), a New Moon celebration (as they celebrated each month) or a Sabbath day (as they kept the 4th Commandment and celebrated weekly). 17 These (things Paul taught them to do, remember they were pagans not Jews) are a shadows (physical rehearsals) of the things that were to come (Spiritual Truths); the reality, however, is found in The Yahushaic Covenant.

The Christian Church for 2,000 years has taught the scripture above as though Paul was chastising the church for following “Judaizers” who came after him teaching the church to keep the Torah.  Like Paul was somehow mad they were keeping The Law.  That is ridiculous!  Jews could have cared less about what they considered “pagan gentiles” or what Paul was doing.  They were already condemning Paul for going to the gentiles to begin with.  Why would they then go after him and take the time to follow Paul around “fundraising” a bunch of pagans. 

These were The Lost Sheep of the House of Israel living among the Gentiles who had converted and were taught by Paul to keep The Torah that they in their hearts longed to keep.  They were already displaying outwards signs of living it as it was “written on their hearts”. They were being condemned by their pagan neighbors for their “foreign behavior”.  Paul clearly said do not let anyone judge them for DOING these things.  It is amazing how we are blinded to what is actually said in scripture as we approach it from the bias of our “teaching”.

Either Paul is a liar for saying one thing and teaching another and a false teacher for teaching doctrines that directly contradict explicit declarations made by Yahusha and YHVH… or maybe… perhaps we have been misled about what Paul said by the Christian Church.  Could it be that The Christian Church stands in rebellion against YHVH and His Law and has twisted scripture to justify their lawlessness?  Be sure and read my upcoming books The Yahushaic Covenant and The Law of YHVH as I explain The Law in The Yahushaic Covenant and deal directly with the writings of The Apostle Paul.

Let us reveal the REAL Apostle Paul, he…

·       Actually celebrated the giving of The Law on Shav’uot. 

·       Went to a Torah observant Jew to be healed from blindness

·       Pleaded with his fellow Jews that he continued to believe everything written in The Law and had done nothing to undermine it (or teach it to be abolished). 

·       Said only those who obey The Law will be declared righteous before YHVH.

·       Said obedience to The Law leads to sanctification

·       Took the Nazarite Vow (defined in The Law) and lived in obedience to The Law.

·       Remained until his death a Torah Observant Jew

·       Was blameless in keeping The Law

·       Was a Jewish Rabbi who studied under the famous Rabbi Gamaliel

·       Was a Pharisee which today would be the equivalent of a Lawyer
