Yahweh’s Laws

Psalm 147:19

Yahweh’s Laws

Genesis introduces us to our God, YAHWEH, and to that extent it is Religious. The promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are Economic and Political.

Exodus gives us the religious Ordinances of the Passover, the Ark and the Tabernacle, the priesthood and the sacrifices, the altar and the Holy Days. It also gives the Ten Commandments, of which ONLY the first four are Religious, the other six are Social and Political. Exodus 19-24.

The next book, Leviticus, is partly Religious, dealing with offerings and sacrifices, consecration of priests, and the Great Feasts and Holy Days, but it also contains the agricultural laws, the rules for healing the sick, and the great economic and social laws of the Year of Rest and release of debts every 7th year, and the restoration of the poor to their lost homesteads every 50th year, and these are definitely Economic and Political. Leviticus 11-27.

The book of Numbers gives the laws of conscription, military training, and war, which are surely Political, as well as Religious.

The book of Deuteronomy reviews the Ten Commandments and the Holy Days, but it also gives the organization of the nation, the dietary and agricultural laws, the economic laws and the laws of warfare, which are surely Social and Political. Deuteronomy 4-25.

All of these Laws are the Laws of the Covenant, the Old Covenant, and the New Covenant. Under the Old Covenant remission of sins was covered in the Rituals by the blood of lambs and goats, Leviticus 1-10, the New Covenant remission of sins is covered by the blood of YAHSHUA, THE LAWS REMAINED THE SAME. Hebrews 8:8.-10:18.

Grace DOES NOT REPLACE the keeping of the Law. Grace is given whereby we may find favor when we break the Law.

WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS by Bertrand L. Comparet

“Many of you have been taught that since you are now Christians, you aren’t under the law anymore, but under grace. This has been greatly misunderstood, the laws of Yahweh were given to us, here in this life on earth, to govern our conduct here, not in heaven. They are the means by which we can have the good things of this life. Take for example the dietary laws, one of these forbids us to eat animals which have died of disease. I don’t care how good a Christian you may be, even if you were the Archbishop of Canterbury himself, it would still be true that if you found the carcass of a cow that had died of hoof and mouth disease, and you took some of the meat and ate it, you would get sick.”

“Yes, I know you wouldn’t lose your eternal salvation but, you certainly would lose your present health by violating this law of Yahweh’s. Yahweh wouldn’t run after you and beat you with a stick, the penalty would be automatic, the same as in the case of other violations of Yahweh’s laws.

“On the other hand, Yahweh warned that if we scorned His commandments, we would suffer many penalties, among them being sickness. Deuteronomy 28:58-61 warns us, “if thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest reverence this glorious and fearful name, Yahweh thy God; then Yahweh will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues and of long continuance and sore sickness and of long continuance. Moreover, he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also, every sickness and every plague which is not written in the book of this law, them will Yahweh bring upon thee.” This will come by the automatic process by which disobedience produces its own consequences.”

“Someone may say, but this is from the Old Testament, that was all done away with. No, it wasn’t! Yahshua said in Matthew 5:17, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I come not to destroy, but to fulfill”. I John 3:4 reminds us, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law.” You recognize it is a sin to violate the seventh commandment, Thou shalt not commit adultery. It is also a sin to violate the agricultural and dietary laws thereby giving the people food which has lost much of the wholesome qualities, which Yahweh intended it should have.”

“If you kept all the law, what sin could you commit? We often say, the wages of sin is death, but we forget that the wages of sin is also the intermediate step of sickness. Psalm 107:17-20 states both the problem and its remedy. “Fools, because of their transgression and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto Yahweh in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.” Psalm 30:2 affirms this. “Yahweh my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.”

“The most serious diseases have been healed this way. II Kings 20:1-6 tells us, “in those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz came to him and said unto him, Thus saith Yahweh: Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die and not live, And Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed unto Yahweh saying, I beseech thee O Yahweh, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. And it came to pass before Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of Yahweh came unto him saying, Turn again and tell Hezekiah, the captain of my people, Thus saith Yahweh, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third-day thou shalt go up into the house of Yahweh. And I will add unto thy days fifteen years.”

Remember, the power of Yahweh is limitless. Many people, in our own day, have been brought back from the brink of death by the power of Yahweh, just as Hezekiah was healed. Some of you must be wondering what we are doing in the Old Testament all this time. Does this mean that Christianity is not the answer and we must seek righteousness under the law? No, I don’t mean that at all. In the first place, we have been looking for the cause of sickness, we have seen that it is one of the consequences of sin, sin brings it on. We shall have sickness until we find the remedy, not for the result, but for the cause: sin. We have already discovered that we aren’t able to keep all the laws perfectly, therefore we must look for another answer.” ~B. C.~
