Replacement Theology Defiles the Everlasting Covenant, the Torah
(Turah is Hebrew, meaning instruction)
The Christian concept known as replacement theology (or Supersessionism) proposes the “New Covenant” supersedes the Abrahimic, Moshaic, and Daudic Covenants, and the moral teachings that define sin are altered. The people of Yisharal are now considered to be replaced by Christian believers, who inherit all the promises made to Yisharal. They usurp the title “Yisharal” under the label “Spiritual Israel.” Engrafting to Yisharal through the everlasting Covenant is regarded as heresy. Reading YirmeYahu (Jer.) 31 quickly reveals the error of this thinking. The foundation of our path must be the Word of Yahuah, and yet traditions grew up like weeds that severed all the “Hebrew roots”. The pagan priesthood at Rome slowly transformed into the chimera (mixed beasts) we see, but do not perceive.
One man, Constantine I,
altered the 10 Commandments by honoring Apollo/Mithras instead of Yahuah, the
Creator. His edict in 321 made “Sunday” the weekly day of rest.
The sign of the everlasting Covenant, Shabath, was considered "Judaizing", and anyone resting on the proper day known as "the Sabbath" at the Council of Laodicea (circa 365 CE) was labelled a heretic. Obeying the Shabath Command marked a person as a heretic (anathema, worthy of death). The 4th Commandment, the sign between Yahuah and His people forever, was directly attacked (defiled).
Rome was the funding and enforcement, and Alexandria was the doctrinal center of the replacement theology. The Didascalia, or Catechetical School at Alexandria, severed all Hebrew roots through men who were harshly anti-Semitic: the church fathers. Their allegorical interpretations made it appear that Christians replaced Yisharal, and inherited all the promises, without any obligation to obey Turah.
Turah of Yahuah, aka Turah of Mosheh
The Turah was given to Mosheh to teach the congregation, and the world not yet
born, and is mentioned at Acts 15 in the decisions reached by the Ruach
ha'Qodesh, YaAqob (Yahusha's brother by Miryam), Kefa, and the "chief supports"
of the Natsarim. The gentiles engrafting into the Covenant were to begin with 4
main points, and continue to learn the Turah of Yahuah, since their parents had been idolaters. Notice
this idea is expressed at Acts 15. The Turah (Mosheh) is read in the
congregations, every Shabath:
Act 15:21 “For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Shabath.”
Why the Earth Will Be Burned
MatithYahu 24 matches the message of YashaYahu (Isaiah) 24, but notice this
passage in particular:
YashaYahu 24:5, 6: "For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Turoth, changed the law, broken the everlasting Covenant. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth, and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned, and few men shall be left."* This is one of many warnings, such as Malaki 4:4-6, and Yual chapters 2 & 3.
This is the reason the earth will be burned in the day of judgment. The “sacraments” have been used to ensnare hearts through empty deceit, and are the traditions of men, Col 2.
The Renewed Covenant
The “renewed Covenant” is “Mashiak in you”, the promised Paraklita (Helper) that comes into our heart to inscribe His Turah on our hearts. Yahusha circumcises the hearts and minds of His followers, enabling them to receive His Mind, and to see their Teacher’s point-of-view. The Natsarim, the original followers of Yahusha, realized He had come into them as He had promised.
Those obeying the Turah of Yahuah and holding to the Testimony of Yahusha are the first-fruits, and the target of the dragon. We identify a tree by its fruit, so if we work out who has been the doctrinal source of the persecuting, we will find the servant of the dragon: the false prophet.
