Liberty, Spiritual Intent, and The Law
by Rav Sha'ul

 

I will provide two more examples of how to apply spiritual intent in light of The Law in the context of liberty:  Tattoos and trimming our beards both common practices these days.  I have been condemned by very conservative Jews and Christians alike for the fact that I have tattoos and I have a trimmed beard (a goatee)… condemned to hell literally by them.  However, what if it can be demonstrated that “spiritually” Yahuah has engraved (tattooed) my name on His hand?  What if it can be demonstrated that at the time of the end, some of the called out ones will “write on their hand” or tattoo the name of Yahuah?  If it is true that spiritually and physically Yahuah and his sons engrave each other’s name on their “skin”, then we must look at the restriction in The Law more closely.  We must apply “spiritual intent” to that Law to understand it.

I want to make clear that this is an example of my liberty that is between myself and my Father.  From my understanding the restriction on such things as tattoos and trimming the edge of your beard and other such restrictions in The Law were levied not because in and of themselves such things are "sin" but because of Idolatry (the basic fundamental of all sin).   They were defined by the act in The Law and now have been transposed to spiritual intent like all things in The Law.

Yahuah tattooed?  His sons tattooing themselves with His name?

It is interesting to note in full disclosure that Yahuah, anthropomorphically speaking of course, "engraved on the palm of His hand" the Elect and they too "write on their hand" they belong to Him.

Isaiah 49:16

See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

Isaiah 44:5

One will say, 'I belong to Yahuah'; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write (amplified Bible says tattoo) on his hand, "Yahuah's," and will take the name Israel.

We see from the above Scriptures that the act both in the Spirit and in the flesh of “engraving” or tattooing names on our flesh with the proper intent is a righteous act.  We must remember, the physical "act" is not judged but rather the "attitude of heart" behind the act.  What would you say to a man who had "Yahuah" and "Yahusha" tattooed on his shoulders in Hebrew in honor of Yahuah and His Messiah (the attitude behind the tattoos) for all the world to "see" just as Isaiah 44:5 says as he takes his place among the chosen Remnant Israel. That man, of course, would be me. I also "cut my beard" too with the “intent” that I don’t like the feel of a long beards not in an act of idolatry. 

The Laws restricting tattoos and trimming beards

The Israelites were fresh out of Egyptian bondage where for hundreds of years they had been mimicking the traditions of the Egyptians.  They were shaping their beards like Pharaoh who was considered a god and tattooing themselves like Egyptian gods etc. When looking at "why" or the attitude of heart behind tattooing and trimming beards in ancient Egypt, we find that it was in fact an act of worship to their gods. In as much as the Israelites were mimicking the Egyptians... Yahuah had to forbid them from the act of doing such things it as it was Idolatry in their hearts

We now are to seek out the "spirit" behind the "letter" as no longer is it the act that Yahuah judges but the attitude in our heart behind it.  Like “food” Yahuah is not impressed or concerned about the physical as your physical body will not inherit The Kingdom of Yahuah:

1 Corinthians 15:50

50 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

So let us do just that concerning tattoos and trimming beards and the Torah restrictions.  Let us examine the “attitude of heart” behind the act at that time that lead to the restrictions.  Why were the ancient Israelites tattoos their bodies and cutting or trimming their beards?

From: http://www.touregypt.net/egypt-info/magazine-mag11012000-mag4.htm

Why do people get tattooed anyway? Modern individuals may do it for all sorts of reasons; trivial or profound but ancient and traditional societies possess serious and conscious reasoning. The traditional reasons for tattooing include:

·       to connect with the Divine.

·       as a tribute or act of sacrifice to a deity.

·       as a talisman, a permanent amulet that cannot be lost, to provide magical or medical protection.

Many traditional cultures also use tattoos on the flesh as a sort of passport to the world after death, although interestingly, with all the emphasis on the next world in ancient Egyptian culture, there is no indication that this was the case there.

Certainly, the connection between tattoos and the divine existed in ancient Egypt. Beyond the geometric designs so favored, the other designs discovered so far are intrinsically connected to religion. Mummies dating from roughly 1300 BCE are tattooed with pictographs symbolizing Neith, a prominent female deity with a militaristic bent. These are the only tattoos that at this point seem to have a link with male bearers.

The earliest known tattoo, which is not an abstraction, which is clearly a picture of something, is an image of the demi-god Bes. Bes' image appears as a tattoo on the thighs of dancers and musicians in many Egyptian paintings. Female Nubian mummies from around 400BCE have been discovered with Bes placed similarly on their flesh.

The restriction on tattooing was, in fact, actually to restrict the Israelites from mimicking Egyptian gods.  We see below the restriction on trimming your beard was not to trim it to look like Pharaoh who was considered a god.  Beards were trimmed in Egypt (and by the Israelites coming out of Egypt) to mimic their pagan gods:

Again from: http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/beards.htm

Yet there remains a mystery associated with beards, evident in art and religion. Despite the apparent low esteem of facial hair during life, the beard was considered to be a divine attribute of the gods, whose closely plaited beards were "like lapis lazuli". In accordance with this religious formula, the pharaoh would express his status as a living god by wearing a false beard secured by a cord on certain occasions. Such beards were usually wider toward the bottom, as in the triad statues of Menkaura. So prevalent was this type of beard in formal royal portraiture, that even Queen Hatshepsut is depicted wearing a false beard. In death, the kings were frequently portrayed wearing the divine Osird form of the beard, which was a long, narrow beard of several strands plaited like a pigtail with the end jutting forward, as on the gold mask of Tutankhamun. Even deceased non-royal men were shown with short, tuft-like beards. However, this is not a clear cut indication, for the dead king was not always presented with this type of beard.

It is in this context of idolatry coming out of Egypt, that Yahuah presented to the Israelites the restrictions on the customs of the Egyptians which were done is acts or worship to other pagan gods. You have to remember, Israel was in Egyptian captivity for nearly 500 years. That is a LONG time in which to adopt pagan customs. So in that light, what they were doing; trimming their beards and getting tattoos were in context acts of Idolatry against Yahuah.  As such the acts themselves were forbidden.  It would take a long time to address the “intent of their hearts” and extend liberty.

The difference between me and the children of Israel coming out of Egyptian bondage is "attitude of heart" behind the acts and liberty. The very point of The Yahushaic Covenant was the transposition of The Law from physical act to "attitude of heart" as Yahusha elevated The Law from written in stone to "Written on our Hearts".  We are Spiritual beings only passing through in this physical body temporarily. These "physical acts" mean nothing to a Spiritual being, only the attitude behind them.  That is what The Yahushaic Covenant is all about.

I have no doubt, that as Yahuah has my name "engraved on his hand" spiritually and I too have His Name engraved on me physically. I let The Law reign in the "attitude of my heart" and that is what drives the "acts of my hands".  As I attempt to please Yahuah and be obedient to His Commandments, the attitude or spirit behind them is the perfection that I seek.  I did not get these tattoos until my mid 30’s when I was given the liberty in my maturity.  I was very careful in what I chose and every tattoo glorifies Yahuah, Yahusha, and the family of Yahuah.  Again this “liberty” is mine and is not given to everyone so I run the risk of “causing my brother to stumble” if I am not careful.

This is not to say that all tattoos that people get are righteous.  The vast majority of them are idolatry… marks on their body for the Antichrist Jesus Christ.  Or vanity marks on their bodies, marks to pagan gods, other men they worship, and in some cases Satan himself or their girlfriends.  While the physical act of tattooing is not the issue, these tattoos would be sin, as the intent of their heart is not to worship Yahuah. It is the attitude of heart that Yahuah judges not the physical act.

Where I fail Him, the blood of the lamb covers me in my ignorance.  So if I am wrong in this area, I am confident Yahuah is just and will honor the sacrifice made for me by my Eternal High Priest Yahusha the Messiah.  Then again, maybe I am one of those spoken of by Isaiah that in the end times..

Isaiah 49:16

See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

Isaiah 44:5

One will say, 'I belong to Yahuah'; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand, "Yahuah's," and will take the name Israel.

The liberty to do this is mine and between me and my father alone.  I’ll leave this as the only example of my personal liberty as it provides a good example of how to apply spiritual intent to the letter of the law.
 

Transposition of The Law

The Law as I have pointed out throughout this book series was transposed from written in stone where sin was defined by physical act to written on our hearts where sin is defined by spiritual intent of the heart.  I cover the transposition of The Law in great detail in Chapter 11 of my book The Kingdom of Yahuah.

The degree to which each of us studies The Law will be determined by The Spirit of Holiness which is training each of us for our destined position within Yahuah’s Kingdom.  Those who teach The Law will be greatest (have the most authority) and be called to higher positions in His Kingdom. 

Matthew 5

19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches The Law, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness in keeping The Law exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

That is because The Law is the governing constitution of His Kingdom and the foundation of righteousness.  My intention in this section is to explain The Law and the various categories within The Law.  I want to establish His Commandments i.e. the Ten Commandments as the beginning foundation of obedience that applies to every man, woman, and child.  We are to obey His Commandments first and foremost.

In addition to keeping His Ten Commandments we are to keep His Ordained Festivals.  As we bring our lives into obedience; first to His Ten Commandments, then to His Ordained Festivals the Yahuah through His Spirit of Holiness will guide us into loving obedience to all the commands, law, and ordinances that apply to us

Ezekiel 36: 26,27

I will give you a new heart (for my Law and write my Law on it) and put a new spirit (of loving obedience) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of The Law without love) and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

Not everyone is “under” every one of the 613 Laws.  The Laws of Yahuah just like laws of man are jurisdictional and not everyone falls under the jurisdiction of every law:

·       There are laws that pertain to women only. 

·       There are laws that apply to men only. 

·       There are laws that apply to Kings, Priests, and Judges that don’t apply to the average person. 

·       The Laws of the Priesthood and Sacrificial Laws have been transposed over to Yahusha who serves as Melchezidek.  These laws don’t apply to us as they have been transposed to Heaven to define the role Yahusha plays as High Priest. 

This is why the entire Law was summarized into the Ten Commandments because those are the commandments that apply to and have jurisdiction over everyone.  I bring this to our attention because “Christians” often mock those who seek to be obedient to Yahuah in love as “legalistic”; and they condemn us for not keeping “the whole law”.  Christian’s favorite accusation is: “if you keep The Law, why aren’t you sacrificing animals?”.  These Christians show a complete disconnect with The Yahushaic Covenant and do not know Yahuah.

As I stated earlier in this Chapter The Law is a term used for all 613 “instructions” in righteousness found in The Torah.  The Law contains very distinct categories:

·       His Commandments (Ten Commandments)

·       His Ordinances/Laws (Dietary, Priestly, Sacrificial, Ritual Purity, Sacrificial, Judicial, Moral, Agricultural, Business, Sabbatical, Community, Prohibition, Tithes/Offerings, etc.)

·       His Decrees (Judicial Judgments amounting to a Certificate of Debt against us for our disobedience to His Commandments and His Laws)

We who are in covenant with Yahuah through The Yahushaic Covenant and have a loving heart of obedience toward His Law can eliminate His Decrees against us.  Those death decrees are covered by the blood of the Lamb.  That reduces the number significantly from the 613 “laws” and leaves only the commands and ordinances.  Then there are MAJOR violations called “sins unto death”:

1 John 5

16 If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.

Many of these “sins unto death” were extracted out of the 613 Laws and organized into The Ten Commandments as they are those sins that cost us our eternal life.

There are other “sins” not “unto death” which are the laws that pertain to our physical bodies and health such as the dietary laws.  Violating these laws has physical consequences to our health not our eternal life.  Laws that apply to agriculture, business, community, and so forth are all laws that if violated effect our relationships with others, our reputation, the ability of the land to regenerate etc.  They do not impact our eternal life.  There are laws given as physical to spiritual parallels that teach us through physical examples what it means to be “set apart” such as the restriction on clothing.  There are laws given that were specific to the time the Israelites were taken out of the land of Egypt to prevent them from committing idolatry such as The Law prohibiting tattoos and trimming our beards as I demonstrated already in this book.

All these laws, as Paul said, are profitable to us in our earthly lives and instructing us in righteousness as we study them from the standpoint of spiritual intent.  Anytime you see the word “Scripture” in the Bible it is referring to The Law, The Prophets, and The Writings we in error call The Old Testament.  The Hebrew scriptures are the true Word of Yahuah.  There was no such thing as The New Testament for another 300 years from when these letters were written.

2 Timothy 3:16

All (Hebrew) Scripture is given by inspiration of Yahuah, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,17 that the man of Yahuah may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

We should all study The Law in its entirety to understand Yahusha’s role as High Priest, to become better people in general, to stay healthy, and to prepare ourselves for our roles as Kings, Priests, and Judges in the coming Kingdom.

When we read “keeping His commandments” in the New Testament that phrase is almost always referring to the Ten Commandments.  Like I said; they are the commands that have jurisdiction over every man, woman, and child:

Luke 18

18 Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 19 So Yahusha said to him, “Why do you call me good (Yahusha was again denying Incarnation)? No one is good but (the) One (God), that is, Yahuah (Yahusha is declaring The Shema again). 20 You know (to keep) the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’ (the Ten Commandments)”

The Apostle Paul also mentions the Ten Commandments exclusively.  Paul confirms that that the “Law of Love” is a summary of the Ten Commandments. There is no such stated “Law” in 613 Laws, it is a divine truth derived from The Commandments:

Romans 13:8

8 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled The Law (the first 5 commandments are how to love Yahuah, the second 5 are how to love your neighbor). 9 For the (last 5) commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Many Christians believe that Yahusha abolished The Law and that Yahusha’s new “law” that replaced Yahuah’s Law is the “Law of Love”.   That was a term used by both Yahusha and the Apostle Paul to summarize the entire Law of Yahuah not abolish it. 

When Yahusha demonstrated transposition into spiritual intent, he referred mainly to the Ten Commandments and laws that apply to everyone in Matthew Chapter 5.  Yahusha begins with the “beatitudes” or rather what your attitude of heart should be to first establish the proper attitude of heart when approaching The Law.

Matthew 5

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Then Yahusha declares he did not come to abolish The Law but to bring it to its fullness in Spirit (fulfill it) as it is written on our hearts.  He then gave us examples we are to follow and how we are to understand The Law from the standpoint of spiritual intent.  Yahusha didn’t go in and explain all of The Law of Yahuah, he just demonstrate the concept.  We all should continue this process as we study The Law and let the Spirit of Holiness guide us in love as to how each law applies to us individually.  We need to discern which laws are physical to spiritual parallels. 

Once Yahusha established the “attitude of heart” we should have in approaching The Law of Yahuah (the beatitudes) he then gave us the following examples to assist each of us in our own study of the entire Law:

Murder Begins in the Heart

21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause[b] shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.

Adultery in the Heart

27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old,[c] ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[d] 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

Marriage Is Sacred and Binding

31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality[e] causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

Yahusha Forbids Oaths

33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

Go the Second Mile

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’[f] 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.

Love Your Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[g] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[h] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren[i] only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors[j] do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

It is not my position to tell each of us what each command and ordinances should mean spiritually.  Since Yahusha did not assume that responsibility either will I.  That is each of our roles individually as we work out our salvation with fear and trembling and strive not to just finish this race but win it!  That means prepare ourselves for His Kingdom by knowing the constitution of that Kingdom:

Philippians 2:12

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed (The Law of Yahuah), not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

1 Corinthians 9:24

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.

For this reason I am only going to categorize The Law and give a general summary of the categories.  I leave it up to all of you to begin your journey of sanctification and strive for righteousness that is found in obedience to Yahuah’s Law.  Begin that journey by bringing your life into obedience to the Ten Commandments.  The next step is to find the joy in keeping His Festivals.  Finally apply yourselves to study and grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.  Further equip yourselves for service in The Kingdom of Yahuah by studying all of His Laws from the standpoint of Spiritual Intent.  Let the Spirit of Holiness guide you in how to apply them to your lives.

Ezekiel 36: 26,27

I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

Next: The Law is jurisdictional
