The Law of Liberty
by Rav Sha'ul

 

The Law is now complete in Yahusha’s sacrifice to cover all our transgressions.  The Law has been strengthened and transposed to spiritual intent; but with the understanding of the spiritual intent of the commandments comes liberty in our actions.  Liberty is not a blanket that uniformly covers every believer.  Liberty is a personal gift given to each son of Yahuah and is personal between them.  Liberty is given based on maturity.  Each believer grows in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding and Yahuah perfects each son through discipline.  As the son matures over time more freedom and liberty is granted by Yahuah.  This process is called sanctification.  The same way we as humans raise our children.  The ultimate goal is that Yahuah can find the son trustworthy and responsible.

As we grow in maturity we are given more freedom and liberty; but with more liberty comes more responsibility.  Maturity is found in the “intent of the heart”.  Yahusha explains this in the parable of the faithful servant:

Luke 12

42 And the King said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44 Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. 45 But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

This is a very sobering concept for those of us whom Yahuah has anointed in a unique service in this life.  We have a grave responsibility because with our calling comes unique Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding intended to “instruct many”.  We have been trained after we have been put in positions to fall hard to develop in us the character and humility required.  We are put through the fire or Kiln of Yahuah as we are refined and purified.  This is not a comfortable life to live.  Once we are perfected to the point of being used by Yahuah we then have an awesome responsibility.  Not only to serve Him but to do it in Truth and not mislead any others as we will be held to account for the lives of all those we mislead. 

Daniel 11

33 And those men of Wisdom who understand (the hidden mysteries) shall instruct many; ... 35 And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.

Mark 9:42

And whosoever shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

We are not only held to account for our teaching but also our behavior.  Liberty then can become a trap.  You must know when you can exercise it and when you cannot as to know make your brother weaker in faith stumble.  It is for this reason why I waited 25 years to begin writing books.  Over the years I spent my time trying to identify the lingering pagan doctrines in my understanding so that I do not mislead or teach false doctrines in error.  I was in a long process of tearing down every high thing and place I had elevated above Yahuah coming out of Christianity (yes, I was raised in the Christian Church).  I was patiently (while very uncomfortably) biding my time in that Kiln of Yahuah to finish His work in me and then move on me.  It was only then that I began writing this book series.  

The Apostle Paul addresses liberty in several of his letters.  Let’s look first at Romans 14 where Paul defines what has come to be called “The Law of Liberty” although that is a man made term, there is no such “Law” in The Law of Yahuah but rather it is a concept of truth in the process of sanctification.

Romans 14  - The Law of Liberty

14 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not if he wants to argue and create disputes. 2 For one believes he may eat all lawful things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for Yahuah has received him. 4 Who are you to self righteously judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls (by Torah standards not your own moral code). Indeed, he will be made to stand, for Yahuah is able to make him stand (as Yahuah gives him the Spirit of loving obedience to His Law)

5 One person esteems one (feast) day as better than another (some believe Yom Kippur is THE most Holy of all Holy Days), while another esteems all (feast) days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind (and not doubt his position because doubt is sin). 6 The one who observes the day (of Atonement as the MOST Holy Day), observes it in honor of Yahuah. The one who eats (on the Day of Atonement), eats in honor of Yahuah, since he gives thanks to Yahuah (in keeping the Day of Atonement), while the one who abstains (fasts on The Day of Atonement), abstains in honor of Yahuah and gives thanks to Yahuah.

 7 For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to Yahuah; and if we die, we die to Yahuah. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are Yahuah’s purchased possession. 9 For to this end Yahusha died and rose and lived again, that Yahusha might be King of both the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother unrighteously? Or why do you show self righteous contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of the Messiah. 11 For it is written:

As I live, says Yahuah, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.”

12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to Yahuah. 13 Therefore let us not self righteously judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block in our brother’s way and cause him to stumble.

14 I know and am convinced by the Messiah Yahusha that there is nothing common of itself (physically); but to him who considers (spiritual intent) anything to be common (physically), to him it is common. 15 Yet if your brother is grieved because of your liberty (because he is accustomed to vegetables only or immature in the meat of the Word of Yahuah), you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your liberty as a mature son the one for whom Yahusha died (with that liberty comes responsibility to the less mature). 16 Therefore do not let your good (works you have liberty to do) be spoken of as evil (because you do them in the sight of an immature child who then slanders you self righteously because to the less mature what you have liberty to do is sin to them); 17 for The Kingdom of Yahuah is not eating and drinking (physical acts), but righteousness and peace and joy in the Spirit of Holiness (spiritual intent). 18 For he who serves Yahusha in these things (keeping in mind your brother’s maturity level in love and be extremely careful with your individual Liberty) is acceptable to Yahuah (because he gave you that Liberty) and approved by men (because you did not exercise it in front of the spiritually immature).

19 Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another (exercise your Liberty sparingly). 20 Do not destroy the work of Yahuah for the sake of exercising your liberty. All lawful things indeed are pure, but it is not profitable to exercise your liberty if it causes the less mature to stumble (as they do not have such liberty). 21 It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak. 22 Do you have faith (and have been given more liberty)?  That liberty is between you and Yahuah. Happy is he who does not condemn himself (be strong in your Liberty don’t doubt it) in what Yahuah has approved and given you liberty to do. 23 But he who doubts his liberty is condemned when he takes such liberty, because he does not take the liberty in faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.

This has been a very hard lesson for me personally in my life.  How to exercise the freedom and liberty I  have been given to reach the lost while not doing it in such a way as to ruin my reputation among those weaker in faith.

Paul addresses this entire concept again in his letter to the Galatia assembly.  At this point we all should fully realize how utterly corrupt our modern translations are.  If you read Galatians in your English Bible you would again come away thinking Paul taught The Law was abolished.  I’m not going to do as I have done previously and go into great detail proving how uninspired these translations are.  I am going to use The Book of Yahuah and go from there.  Note for those of you who do not own The Book of Yahuah in hard copy, you can get the e-book edition for $10 on Amazon.  Below, Paul is explaining the value of circumcision and that we are still “under the Law”.  We simply cannot do whatever we want.
