The word "Law" as it appears in the English Bible, is greatly misunderstood by modern Christendom. This word appears in the Hebrew as " Torah " meaning "instruction" and in the Greek as "nomos". This Greek word is actually a loan word from the Semitic languages of Hebrew and Aramaic. The primary Aramaic word for Torah in both the TaNaK and "NT" portions of the Aramaic Pesh'tta text is "namosa" which comes from the Semitic root "nemus" meaning "to civilize." Today in Israel parents often tell their children "nemusi"! meaning "be polite !"

Torah is everlasting. There is no shortage of TaNaK passages which tell us that the Torah (Mitzvot/Commandments/divine instruction ) is "everlasting" ,"for all generations","a perpetual ordinance " (Exodus. 27:21; 28:43; 29:28; 30:21; 31:17; Leviticus. 6:18, 22; 7:34, 7:36; 10:9, 15; 17:7; 23:14, 21, 23:41; 24:3; Numbers. 10:8; 15:15; 18:8, 11, 19, 23; 19:10; Deut. 5:29; Ps. 119:160) and is not to be changed or taken away from (Deut. 4:2; 12:32). As Christian apologists contend .

"O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever " (DEU 5:29)

"And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which He wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods." (2 King 17:37)

"Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always." (DEU 11:001)

"This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. "DEU026:016

The Christian Paul says :

"Christ hath redeemed us from the CURSE OF THE LAW " : (GAL3:013)

Yet David loved God's Law / divine instruction and delighted in it :

"Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight." (PSA 119:35)

" O how I love thy law ! it [is] my meditation all the day"
(PS. 119:97)

"I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love. "PSA (119:113)

"My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly ." (PSA 119:167 )

"Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold." (PSA 119:127)

According to Paul , David was in love with God"s cursed divine instruction . Christians contend that they are free from ((((( T H E C U R S E OF THE LAW )))) .

Yet in TaNaK There is no conflict between God's Law/divine instruction and liberty :

"So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever. And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts." (Psa 119:45-44)

" For the COMMANDMENT IS A LAMP ; and the LAW IS LIFE; and reproofs of instruction are THE WAY OF LIFE : " (PRO 6:023)

" Great peace have they which love thy law..." (PSA 119:165)

" he that keepeth the law, HAPPY IS HE ." ( PRO029:018).

God's divine instruction "restores the soul" (Ps. 19:7).

Christian's curse the cursed Law , that "Old" testament with all it's curses . Unknowingly they curse them selves for blaspheming God's divine instruction :


"Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, which do err from thy commandments." (PSA 119:21)

"Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes." (Psa 119:155)

God's "Eternal Testament" tells us :

" My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." (HOS 4:6)

Christians have forgotten God's divine instruction ( Including the 7 Noachide Laws ) .

If a person desires understanding and Knowledge , where should they turn ? :

"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple." (PSA 119:130)

" Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. (PSA 119:98-101)

( NOTE: Was David perfect ? No . Yet here he says " I have refrained my feet from every evil way " this is Drash /I'm writing another article on this subject .)

"Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. "! Psa 119:104

Despite all of Christendom's elaborate attempts to explain why God is supposedly not doing things as he used to, the Scriptures tell us that God is eternally consistent (Mal. 3:6). Men of the "Eternal Testament/TaNaK" were always under God's grace (Gen. 6:8; Ex.33:12, 17; Judges 6:17 f; Jer. 31:2) and equally justified by faith not "Law" (divine instruction) .(Gen.15:6; ) they could not have earned their salvation as Christians claim . Jews today do not earn their "salvation " . Everything must emanate from our faith . Faith and love is the foundation of our observance of Torah and it is God's grace that opens the gates of Paradise and it is Teshuvah/Repentance that pours God's grace into our lives faith /love / commandments / submission / action .etc It's all one harmonious unit , you cant have one without the others .

The "new testament" contains more commandments than the so called "Old Testament". The "new testament" contains 1050 commandments [as delineated in Dake's Annotated Reference Bible; By Finnis Jennings Dake; N.T. pp.313-316] while God"s divine Law contains only 613 (b.Makkot 23b) .

( 613 don"t apply to everyone . There are Commandments specifically for men others just for women , others to be observed in certain days , other commandments for priests ,merchants , kings etc. 1/3 of the 613 Commandments are related to the Temple . There will be a future temple in the messianic age and the sacrificial system will be reestablished ( Eze 40-44 ).The Torah will go forth from Zion , it will be placed in the heart"s of the Children of Israel , this means we will observe the Commandments effortlessly and naturally like drinking a glass of water. The whole earth will be filled with the knowledge of God, christian missionaries will be out of work . The priests shall teach Torah and so will the Messiah . There are four ways to interpret Torah: P'shat (plain sense) Remez (hint) D'rash (search) and Sod (Secret). Together they spell PaRDes (Garden). Messiah shall reveal the secrets and shall elucidate the Drash .I shall explain this in another article . I"d also like to add that the Gentile who embraces the Torah and the Children of Israel becomes a Child of Israel within the Abrahamic/Mosaic convenient . It"s more than being "grafted in " as Christians believe, the essence of their soul is transformed forever. Righteous gentiles will also have a place in the world to come .)

Christian apologists ask :

"why bother keeping God's Law / divine instruction ?".

The Scriptures are very clear :

"For this commandment which I command you this day [The Law (See verses 9-11)], IT IS NOT TO HARD FOR YOU, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say: ' Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it to us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?' Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say: 'Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and make us hear it, that we may do it?' But the word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, THAT YOU MAY DO IT. (Deut. 30:11-14)

"And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, THAT YOU MAY PROSPER in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself" (1KI 2:3)

" Hath the Lord great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams". (1SA 15:22)

I have been in Christian churches that have the Jewish Bible opened on a table in front of the pulpit, to either the book of Psalms or the book of Proverbs . I believe they ignore the following passages :

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD; AND IN HIS LAW DOES HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT . And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish." (PSA 1:1-6)

When you go to Church this Sunday , tell your fellow congregates that " I DELIGHT IN THE LAW OF THE LORD; AND IN HIS LAW DO I MEDITATE THAT I MAY BARE MUCH FRUIT " ...Don't be surprised if they lay hands on you..." We rebuke you ! Demon of the Law !! " .

According to the TaNaK KING SOLOMON is the wisest man that ever lived , there shall never be another person on earth wiser than King Solomon :

" Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that THERE WAS NONE LIKE THEE BEFORE THEE NEITHER AFTER THEE SHALL ANY ARISE LIKE UNTO THEE " (1KI 3:012)

What better way to end this article on the importance of God"s Law ,then by quoting King Solomon ( The wisest man that ever lived and shall ever live ) .

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." (ECC 12:013)
