It is written:
“How I love Your Torah! I meditate on it all day. Your Word is a lamp for my foot and light on my path….Your mitzvot are mine forever.”(Psalm 119:97,105, 98)
On this festive holiday of Simchat Torah (Joy of the Torah), knowing that Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, is the Living Torah of G-d, let us rejoice with the Jewish People and show our gratitude to ADONAI (YHWH), our ELOHIM, for giving us the great gift of His Word.
Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, delivered us from the curse of the Torah but not from the Torah itself!
The “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, did not come to abolish the Torah of Moses or the writings of the prophets; He came to fulfill the Torah (Matthew 5:17). He is the Living Torah of G-d, the Living Word of G-d.
ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d, sent His Beloved Son Yeshua the Messiah to speak His Word (John 3:34), and the Word people heard was not his own but that of the Father who sent Him (John 14:24), for G-d did not give him the Spirit in limited degree (John 3:34).
The Torah of ADONAI is PERFECT, restoring the inner person. The instruction of ADONAI is sure, making wise the thoughtless (Psalm 19:8). So let us be careful to obey all the words of His Torah…For this is not a trivial matter for us; on the contrary, it is our life!” (Deuteronomy 32:46-47)
The Torah is ADONAI (YHWH)’s instruction to His people. These instructions teach us how to live on this earth and point us to Eternal Life through the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, who has the True Torah in His mouth; no dishonesty was found on His lips; He walked with ADONAI (YHWH), His G-d and Father, our G-d, in peace and uprightness and is turning many away from sin.
ADONAI (YHWH), our ELOHIM, was pleased, for His Righteousness’ sake, to make the Torah Great and Glorious (Isaiah 42:21), and the Torah of the Spirit produces the Life in union with Messiah Yeshua (Romans 8:2).
May ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d and Father, open our eyes, so that we will see wonders from His Torah (Psalm 119:18); for the Torah Yeshua the Messiah has spoken means also to me more than a fortune in gold and silver.
In our union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, let us set our hearts on studying and practicing the Torah of ADONAI (YHWH), His G-d and Father, our G-d.
Now the same Torah and standard of judgment is to be apply to both, the Jews and non-Jews, in our union with the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord.
May ADONAI (YHWH), the G-d of Isra’el, our G-d, give us common sense and understanding, so that we will observe and live by His Torah, as did Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord!
Through our union with His Beloved Son Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, ADONAI (YHWH), our G-d, made the Covenant with us to put His Torah within us and write it on our hearts (Jeremiah 31:32(33)). The Torah is for today!
“The mitzvah is a lamp, Torah is light, and reproofs that discipline are the way to life.” (Proverbs 6:23); “How happy are those whose way of life is blameless, who live by the Torah of ADONAI!” (Psalm 119:1)
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.
