Chapter 3

 

Rav Sha’ul’s Commentary:

In Chapter 3, we see Sha’ul teach that The Law is established in our hearts by Yahuah through Faith. The Assembly in Galatia was coming under pressure from both sides; the surrounding pagans and false Jewish brothers. Galatia was a pagan province of Rome and the believers there were themselves former pagans coming into the Knowledge of The Truth of the Torah and Messiah. Their neighbors and fellow citizens of Galatia were pressuring them to reject their new Faith. Sha’ul points out to the Galatians that the evidence that Yahusha was truly the long awaited Messiah was right before there very eyes, written in The Heavenly Scroll for all mankind. The very constellations they once thought were gods whom the pagans worshipped, were actually pictograms that told the story of a Lamb that would be slaughtered as Yahuah has given these constellations and the story behind them to “all mankind” as a Witness of Yahusha.

Deuteronomy 4
19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshipping things YHVH your Elohim has apportioned (the Zodiac/Heavenly Scroll) to all the nations under heaven (as a Witness to the coming Messiah).

Sha’ul taught The Heavenly Scroll as an independent Witness of the Creator Himself to all men. We see him teach this in the letter to the Assembly in Rome as well. Sha’ul explained that “Faith comes from hearing” the Message proclaimed in the stars:

Romans 10
17 Consequently, Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about the Messiah. 18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: “Their voice has gone out into all the Earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalms 19:4 )

Galatians 3:1-8
The Law Established through Faith

Galatians 3:1-8
Proper Translation in Context

1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, that you would not Obey the Truth (of The Torah, Psalm 119:160 and Romans 7:12)?

Psalm 119

160 The sum of Your Word is Truth, and every one of Your Righteous Ordinances is Everlasting.

Romans 7:12

So then, the Law is Holy, and the Commandment is Holy, Righteous and Good.

Before your very eyes (the Stars Witness to mankind in The Heavenly Scroll Psalms 19) Yahusha Messiah has been openly portrayed (in the stars) among you as sacrificed (as a lamb that was slain in The Heavenly Scroll, as it is a witness of the Gospel Galatians 3:8 and Genesis 15:5 and Revelation 5:6 and 1 Peter 1:20 and Revelation 13:8), to reconcile all men (who enter into The Yahushaic Covenant) to Yahuah.

Galatians 3:8

Scripture foresaw (in the stars) that Yahuah would justify the Gentiles by Faith, and announced the Gospel in advance to Abraham (Genesis 15:5): "All nations will be blessed through you."

Genesis 15:5

He took him outside and said, "Look up at the Heavenly Scroll and understand (what) the stars (proclaim, Psalm 19) --if indeed you can count them (12 signs in the order the sun travels)." Then he said to him, "So shall your Seed (the Messiah) be." (the stars Witnessed the Gospel of Yahusha to Abraham)

Revelation 5:6

Then I saw (in the Heavenly Scroll) a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the Throne (the Mazzaroth), encircled by the four living creatures and the elders.

1 Peter 1:20

…19 but with precious blood, as of a Lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Yahusha. 20 For He was foreknown (in the Heavenly Scroll) before the foundation of the world (written into the stars)

Revelation 13:8

All inhabitants of the Earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the Lamb's Book of Life, the Lamb who was slain (in the stars) from the creation of the world.

2 I would like to know just one thing from you: Do you receive the Spirit (of Loving Obedience to The Law Ezekiel 36: 26, 27) by doing anything outside of The Law?

Ezekiel 36

26“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 “I will put My Spirit within you (as an earnest guarantee of your future inheritance) and cause you to walk in My Statutes, and you will be careful to observe My Ordinances.

Or by hearing anything outside of the Faith? (in the Promises made in The Torah. This is a rhetorical question; the answer is obviously, no; we did NOT receive the earnest guarantee outside of Faith in His Promises! The Spirit of Yahuah is literally defined as a Loving Spirit of Obedience to The Law, Ezekiel 36: 26, 27 upon which The Yahushaic Covenant is built upon Jeremiah 31).

Jeremiah 31

33 “This is the Covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares Yahuah. “I will put My Law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people.

3 Are you so foolish? Having made a beginning in the Spirit (having an earnest guarantee imparted upon Mikveh, Ephesians 1:14 and 2 Corinthians 1:21-22),

Ephesians 1

13 In Whom you also trusted, hearing the Word of Truth; The Law and the Prophets, the message of your Salvation; in Whom also, having believed (Yahusha was the fulfillment of that Word of Truth), you were sealed with the Holy Spirit, previously Promised; 14 Which is the deposit, guaranteeing what we will inherit, until the redemption of all purchased possessions--to the praise of His Glory.

2 Corinthians 1

21 Now He Who establishes us with you in Covenant with the Messiah, and has anointed us, is Yahuah; 22 Who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

are you now trying to attain perfection through the flesh (by disobeying the Spiritual Law, Romans 7:14 which is perfect, Psalms 19:7 and defines Righteousness, Romans 2:13 those in the flesh cannot submit to The Law or please Yahuah Romans 8:7)?

Romans 7:14

We know that the Law is Spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.

Psalm 19:7

The Law of Yahuah is perfect, refreshing the soul. The Statutes of Yahuah are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

Romans 2:13

For it is not those who hear The Law who are Righteous in Yahuah’s sight, but it is those who Obey The Law who will be declared Righteous.

Romans 8:7

The mind governed by the flesh (who tries to please man) is hostile to Yahuah; it does not submit to Yahuah’s Law (has enmity toward it), nor can it do so.

4 Have you suffered so much for nothing (to only now turn your back on The Law), if it really is for nothing?

5 Therefore, is the Spirit (of Truth that teaches us to Obey the Law our out of Love, Ezekiel 36:26,27) given to you,

Ezekiel 36

26“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 “I will put My Spirit within you (as an earnest guarantee of your future inheritance) and cause you to walk in My Statutes, and you will be careful to observe My Ordinances.

and mighty works done among you, by doing anything outside of The Law, or hearing anything outside of the Faith? (the answer is NO, this is a rhetorical question, really it is a statement that the Spirit was given to us by our Loving Obedience to The Law as it is now written on our hearts not abolished, Jeremiah 31)

Jeremiah 31
33 “This is the Covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares Yahuah. “I will put My Law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My People.

6 Just as Abraham followed (The Law of) Yahuah,

Genesis 26:5

because Abraham Obeyed Me and did everything I required of him, keeping My Commands, My Decrees and My Instructions."

it was accounted to him for Righteousness (because he ACTED upon it, Faith without works is dead, James 2:14-26)

James 2

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the Altar? 22 You see that Faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, Faith was perfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED YAHUAH, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of Yahuah. 24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by Faith alone.

7 Therefore, then understand that those who are of the Faith (that is demonstrated through works, James 2:18-19);

James 2:18-19

18 But someone may well say, “You have Faith and I have works; show me your Faith without the works, and I will show you my Faith by my works.” 19You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder. 20But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that Faith without works is useless? 21Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the Altar?

those who follow Messiah (walk as he walked in Obedience to The Law, 1 John 2:6),

1 John 2:6

he that says he lives in Covenant with Yahusha, should himself also live even as Yahusha lived in Obedience to The Law.

the same are the children of Abraham (who, like Abraham, Obey The Law, Genesis 26:5. Those are the only ones Yahusha was sent to help see, Hebrews 2:16).

8 And the Scriptures (The Heavenly and Earthly Scroll) prophesied that Yahuah would justify the heathen (the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel scattered among the Gentile nations, Matthew 15:23) through the Faith (which establishes The Law, Romans 3:31), the message preached before to Abraham (by The Stars, Genesis 15:5) so that: In you all the nations will be blessed.

9 So, those of the Faith (of Abraham whose Faith was manifested by his Obedience to The Law, James 2:20-22); are blessed with the same Faith of Abraham (which was established by his Obedience to The Law, Genesis 26:5).

 

Galatians 3:10-14  
Those Outside The Law/Lawless will be Cursed and Cast Out!

Galatians 3:10-14
Proper Translation in Context

10 But as many as are doing works (of the Law) outside of the Law (of Faith) are under the curse (of the Death Decrees, you must Faith in the Passover Lamb to cover your transgressions, otherwise you are judged by Death Decrees in The Law). For this is written (here is the Death Decree you are under outside of Faith in the Passover Lamb): “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in The Book of The Law, to do them” (Deuteronomy 27: 26. This Decree is covered for those in The Yahushaic Covenant).

11 That no man is justified by keeping The Law alone outside of Faith, before Yahuah, that is quite evident, for those justified will live by the Faith (Habakkuk 2:4. The King James version traditionally translates this: ‘no man is justified by works of Law. Also eviden,t the unjust will not live.’ Greek ‘pistis’. Thayer's Greek Lexicon, Pages 512-514, shows this word means ‘the whole system of religious truth practiced by Abraham.’, Jude 1: 3).

Jude 1:3

3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common Salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the Faith (which establishes The Law, Romans 3:31) which was once for all handed down to the saints (from Abraham who Obeyed The Law, Genesis 26:5). 4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed (filled with The Spirit of Error), those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation (for teaching The Law is abolished), ungodly persons (with enmity toward Yahuah’s Law, Ephesians 2:14-16) who turn the Grace (forgiveness of the Death Decrees) of our Elohim into licentiousness (disregard for The Law) and deny our only Master and Ruler, Yahusha the Messiah (who said he did NOT come to abolish The Law).…

12 And The Law is not contrary to the Faith (rather Faith establishes The Law, Romans 3:31), for (Lev. 18:5) the man who does these things (Laws) will live by them (in Faith).

13 Messiah has redeemed us from the curse of The Law (Colossian 2:14) by becoming a curse for us (The Curse of The Law: The Death Penalty for having broken Yahuah's Law, Romans 6: 23, Revelation 22: 14) for it is written: Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree. (Duet. 21:23)

14 He redeemed us (paid the dowry for his Bride to redeem her from the Death Decrees) in order that the blessing given (Promise) to Abraham might come to the Gentiles (where the Lost Sheep are scattered, Matthew 15:24 and Hebrews 2:16)

Matthew 15:24

He answered, "I was sent only to the Lost Sheep of Israel."

Hebrews 2:16

For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.

through Yahusha Messiah, so that by the Faith (in the Promises Yahuah made in The Torah), we might receive the Promise of the Spirit (of Truth, which teaches us to keep His Law, Ezekiel 36:27... Faith ESTABLIHES The Law, Romans 3:31. In that way, it is Faith which leads to being filled with The Spirit of Loving Obedience to The Law. And through Obedience we come to know Yahuah, 1 John 2:3 and 1 John 5:3 and John 14:15).

 

Galatians 3:15-23
The Transposition of The Law from Oral to Written in Stone Does Not Abolish The Promise

Galatians 3:15-23
Proper Translation in Context

15 Brothers, let me give you an example: Even in ordinary life, no one can do away with, nor can they add (You shall not add to; Deuteronomy 4: 2, Deuteronomy 12: 32, Revelation 22: 18) to a human covenant once it has been duly ratified; so it is in this case (Yahusha ratified with his blood, the Covenant of Law, Revelation 15:5) with his blood.

Revelation 15:5

After this I looked, and I saw in heaven the Temple--that is, the Tabernacle of the Covenant Law--and it was opened. 

16 Now the Promises were made to Abraham (Abraham's Seed, Galatians 3: 29) concerning the Faith (in keeping The Law, Genesis 26:5). Yahuah does not say: And to seeds, as if to the others, but: And to your (Genesis 12: 7, 13: 15, and 24: 7) Seed, meaning the Messiah (and those in The Yahushaic Covenant, John 1:12).

17 Now I say this; The Law, which came into (written) existence 430 years after the (verbal) Covenant was already ratified by Yahuah (with Abraham who was given The Law orally, Genesis 26:5) --does not do away with, nor abolish the Promise (the Promise exists in both legal states of the Law, orally and written in stone. See my commentary below on the Transposition of The Law).

18 For if the (Ephesians 1: 3-18) inheritance is outside The Law, then it is no longer from the Promise (because the Promise of Eternal Life is in The Torah for Obedience to The Law, you cannot abolish The Law without abolishing the Promise along with it!); but Yahuah has given it (The Law verbally, Genesis 26:5) to Abraham through the (verbal) Promise (that he would be a blessing to all nations and The Law is part of that blessing to the nations).

19 What, then, was the purpose of the (written) Law? It was added (in stone) 430 years after the (verbal) Covenant (where Yahuah gave The Law to Abraham, Genesis 26:5) for forgiveness of transgressions (we see sin forgiven in, Leviticus 19: 20-22) until the Seed would come to Whom it had been Promised, ordained by malakim through the hand of a Mediator (The Eternal High Priest Melchizedek. The Law was transposed to Heaven not abolished, Hebrews 7:12).

20 However, a Mediator implies more than one party (in the Covenant), but Yahuah is Only One (declares The Shema, this is clear evidence against Incarnation, as Yahuah is ONE, and the Mediator Yahusha is “the other one”. Sha’ul is establishing the need for the Messiah because there are two parties to every Covenant, not just one. So mediation is necessary if one party fails in their obligation (mankind sinned and fell short) to cover the Death Decrees in The Law for those who Obey it in Faith. Thereby the Mediator restores the Covenant by bridging the gap between the two parties).

21 Therefore is the Law against the Promises of Yahuah? By no means! For if there were any Law which could have given true life, then justification would have come through that Law. (The Law is a set of instructions, that come with a Promise. Eternal Life is based on the Promise… so they go together. You can’t have one without the other, they are not against each other they are a function of the other.)

22 However, that which is written; The Law, Prophets, and Writings, has shut all up in the power of sin (as all have sinned creating a need for a mediating High Priest/Messiah), in order that the Promise through the Faith in Yahusha might be given to the ones who believe Messiah (Therefore, is The Law against the Promise of Yahuah? By no means! For since The Law was given to define Righteousness and identify sin, it was never designed to be able to deliver from the penalty of sin, deliverance from sin is through the Promise of the coming Passover Lamb, who would cover the Death Decrees, making The Law whole, as The Law was made weak by OUR flesh, Romans 8:3 requiring a sacrifice/mediator)

23 But before the Faith came to us, we were guarded in the Power of The Law (which created in us a need for and Faith in the coming Messiah), being shut up together (and protected by a tutor to point us to the Messiah) until the Faith in Messiah would be revealed; unveiled and uncovered.

 

Rav Sha’ul Commentary:

In Galatians 3:17, Sha’ul talks about the written Law coming into existence 430 years after the oral Law. The Promise made to Abraham is not separate from The Law as Yahuah gave The Law to Abraham orally. Abraham was counted as Righteous for being Obedient to Yahuah Commandments in Faith. In this section, Sha’ul confronts the lie that Eternal Life is based solely on either the Promise or The Law. Righteousness before Yahuah is a function of keeping The Law and putting your Faith in His Promises found IN That Law! If you abolish The Law, you abolish the Promise of Salvation through the Passover Lamb with it.

Below is from the first book in this series, The Law & The Pauline Doctrine. In that first book, I explain the concept of transposition of The Law to help us understand what Sha’ul believed and understood.

Transposition of the Law of Yahuah

In Chapter 1 - Keys to studying the Kingdom of Yahuah I defined the concept of transposition as follows:

Transposition is the transfer of position from one state to another without changing the meaning and ‘Intent’.

One of the terms I use most in this book is Transposition. I use this term because it is the word chosen by the Apostle Sha’ul to describe the “change” that occurred in both the physical Law and physical Priesthoods. Sha’ul used the Greek word “metathesis” in Hebrews 7:12 when explaining how The Law and the Priesthood of Levi defined by the Mosaic Covenant “changed” in the Yahushaic Covenant. Metathesis is Strong’s 3331 and means "transferred to Heaven"... transposition.

3331

metathesis
met-ath'-es-is

from - metatithemi 3346; transposition, i.e. transferal (to heaven), disestablishment (of a Law from physical to Spiritual):--change to, removing, translation.

Today, the word transposition is used in music and the musical application beautifully and very accurately illustrates the concept as it applies to physical to Spiritual transposition. “Transposition” in music is the shifting of a melody, a harmonic progression or an entire musical piece to another key, while maintaining the same tone structure.

This is exactly what happened with The Law and the Priesthood from the Mosaic Covenant to the Yahushaic Covenant and in fact all of Yahuah’s Commandments and Ordinances in the Mosaic Covenant. They were first given orally, then transposed to “written in stone”, and ultimately transposed to “written in our hearts” while maintaining their validity, meaning, and structure. They went through a transfer of position (transposition) from oral to written to Spirit.  

Nothing established by Yahuah has ever been “abolished” other than the Decrees found within The Law for violating His Commands. Even those Decrees were not “abolished” they were covered by the blood of the Passover Lamb for those who believe, and condemn those who do not put their Faith in Passover. So actually, nothing Yahuah has ever done has been “abolished” by anyone or anything. No one has that authority.

4 States and 3 Transpositions

Keep in mind that “transposition” is the transfer of position from one state to another without changing the structure, validity, meaning, or content. The Law of Yahuah, like the Kingdom of Yahuah, has always existed. Yahuah’s Righteousness is the same yesterday (Eternal past), today, and forever. Yahuah didn’t just make up the Law as mankind labored along in this age to “point out his sin” as Christianity would have us believe. No, like all other aspects of the Kingdom of Yahuah, The Law is a Spiritual Truth and was progressively revealed to man physically over time through covenants. We covered covenants too, as an essential “key” to understanding the Kingdom of Yahuah in Chapter 1 of this book. That doesn’t mean The Law came into existence over time; it just means that man didn’t know what The Law was and had to be slowly introduced to it.

4 States of the Law

The Law has existed in 4 states over the period of progressive disclosure through covenants:

1.      The Mind of Yahuah – Transposition #1…

2.      Oral Tradition – Transposition #2…

3.      Written in Stone– Transposition #3…

4.      Written on our Hearts

 

3 Transpositions of the Law

In the process of progressively revealing The Law of Yahuah to man, The Law went through 3 distinct transpositions as it passed from one state to the next:

1.      The first transposition was from the mind of Yahuah to mankind orally in small doses. Man, then passed The Law down from generation to generation verbally.

2.      The second transposition of The Law was from oral tradition to “written in stone” in detail defined as the physical act.

3.      The third transposition was from written in stone (physical acts) to written on our hearts (Spiritual Intent).

With each transposition of The Law, it simply transferred states and remained fully intact in meaning, validity, structure, etc.

Let’s take a closer look at proof that The Law existed prior to Adam and witness the transposition of that Law from the mind of Yahuah to man orally… then to man in written form… then ultimately to the hearts of His sons.

The Law existed prior to Adam

in the Mind of Yahuah

The Apostle Sha’ul clearly teaches that even though at the time Adam lived, Yahuah (through progressive revelation over time) had not yet fully communicated His Holy Law to man. The entire Holy Law was still active at the creation of man, and the penalty for disobedience which is DEATH was imputed to every man who violated any part of it. the fact that death existed from Adam to Moses, Sha’ul says below, is PROOF that The Law existed in its entirety at the time of Adam.

Sha’ul says below that, the fact that many died for various offenses not related to what Adam did (don’t eat the apple), was proof that The Holy Law of Yahuah was a complex set of Laws and Eternally valid and active. Mankind (at the time of Adam) simply was not completely aware of what The Law contained. But Yahuah's Holiness was the same at the time of Adam as it was at the time of Abraham, Moses, David, Yahusha, and you and I today. And that Holiness is defined by His Holy Law.

The Apostle Sha’ul addresses the reality of The Law from Adam to Moses below:

Romans 5
12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned. 13 To be sure, sin was in the world before The Law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no Law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a Command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

What does all that mean?  Let me break it down to clearly demonstrate what Sha’ul is talking about below:

Romans 5
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin (sin is disobedience to The Law, 1 John 3:4) entered the world (Adam disobeyed Yahuah’s Commands bringing sin into the world), and death through sin (The Law of Sin and You Die), and thus death spread to all men (as Death is the penalty of sin which is breaking the Law. Original Sin, another false doctrine, did not spread to all men, genetic DEATH did), because all man sinned (and therefore die for their own sin, not because they are born with Original Sin, The Law clearly states that no man is to be punished for another’s sin, including Adam’s)

13 To be sure, sin (breaking The Law) was in the world before The (written) Law was given (to Moses), but sin (breaking The Law) is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no Law. (so the fact that sin was in the world before the written Law is proof The Law existed all the way back to Adam)

NOTE: Keep all of Sha’ul’s writings in context; Sha’ul is proving that because there was transgression since Adam that The Law was alive and active. Because if The Law did not exist, neither would transgressions and death could not reign:

Romans 4:15
15 Because The Law worketh wrath (death for disobedience): for where no Law is, there is no transgression.

Continuing with Romans 5… (so Sha’ul is saying there must have been The Law at the time of Adam because there was transgression…) 14 Nevertheless (now Sha’ul says death is the proof of The Law), death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, (and DEATH is the penalty of “sin” or breaking The Law. So transgression and death is PROOF The Law existed from Adam to Moses) even over those who did not sin by breaking a Command, as did Adam (The Law was a lot more complex than anyone knew because people were dying for all types of sin not just “eating the apple”)

So, we see that The Law existed in the mind of Yahuah all the way back to Adam, they just weren’t aware of what all The Law required. Mankind was still held to account for The Law from Adam to Moses as made evident by death. Death being the penalty of transgressing The Law reigned from Adam to Moses and therefore is proof The Law of Yahuah is Eternal both past and future.

Man was in the initial stages of progressive disclosure. But rest assured, The Law still governed Yahuah’s Creation and death was still the penalty for violating it and sin was still being charged against EVERYONE who transgressed any part of His Holy Law. That is what Sha’ul is saying.

I needed to bring this to our attention because the False Religion of Christianity teaches us that “Sha’ul” said The Law came into existence 430 years after the Abrahamic Covenant.

Galatians 3The written Law introduced
The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the Covenant previously established by Yahuah and thus do away with the Promise. 18 For if the inheritance depends on The Law, then it no longer depends on the Promise; but Yahuah in his Grace gave it to Abraham through a Promise.

Well, “if” Sha’ul actually said what Christianity teaches he said; he wasn’t much of a Pharisee and expert in the Torah; because not only did Sha’ul say The Law existed at creation, but Sha’ul knew Abraham was given The Law orally in detail!

Gen 26:5Abrahamic Covenant

5 Because that Abraham Obeyed My Voice, and kept My Charge, My Commandments, My Statutes, and My Laws.

Don’t worry, I will cover Galatians and explain it all along with every other false teaching of the Christian Church concerning The Law. We are going to address all of it in my upcoming book, The Law of Yahuah. Sha’ul seems to contradict himself and contradict every other Prophet and Yahusha concerning The Law (if you believe the Pauline Doctrine of the Christian Church that is).

In order to understand Sha’ul’s writing we must know what Sha’ul knew… the Torah and Prophets! We must understand the Yahushaic Covenant as it pertains to Faith vs. Righteousness. We will put Sha’ul into context (something Christianity fails to do) of all his writings and the Torah and the Prophets and see exactly what Sha’ul actually said, believed, and lived in my book, ‘The Law of Yahuah’. To stay on point in this chapter, I am establishing The Law as the governing constitution of the Kingdom of Yahuah.

Transposition of The Law is what Sha’ul taught in all his writings. In teaching the transposition of The Law Sha’ul can be brought into agreement with Yahuah, Yahusha, the Prophets, and all the other commentators in the New Testament concerning The Law. Sha’ul was first and foremost… a Pharisee and lived a life of strict Obedience to The Law:

Acts 24:14 Sha’ul declaring his belief in The Law and Prophets
“But this I admit to you: I worship the Elohim of our fathers in accordance with the Way (which they call a sect). I continue to believe everything that accords with The Torah (The Law) and everything written in the Prophets.”

Philippians 3: 4-6: Sha’ul was a Pharisee, a Jewish Rabbi blameless in keeping The Law until he died
4. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5. Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the Tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching (Obedience to) The Law, a Pharisee; 6. Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the Righteousness which is in The Law, blameless.

If the way Christianity teaches Sha’ul’s writings is true, then the Apostle Sha’ul is not only a colossal hypocrite but he is a false teacher for directly contradicting Yahuah’s Prophets and the Messiah. Yahusha was a Torah Observant Jewish Rabbi who “didn’t come to abolish The Law and the Prophets”.

Christianity has been bearing false witness against the Apostle Sha’ul for 2,000 years. It is time we honor the Apostle Sha’ul and treat his writings with respect in light of his lifelong commitment to The Law. But like I said, Sha’ul properly taught the transposition of the Law and taught that The Law was active all the way back to Adam.

First Transposition of Law

from the Mind of Yahuah to oral tradition

Now we know The Law was alive and active all the way back to Adam. We clearly see below; The Law was communicated verbally to our forefathers and defined the “terms and conditions” of every covenant long before the covenant with Moses. Each covenant between Yahuah and his sons are literally Marriage Covenants and The Law defines the Marriage Vows.

Note: It is through keeping these vows that we become one with Yahuah (the two shall become one through marriage covenant). The human marriage covenant is a physical to Spiritual parallel of the covenants between Yahuah and His sons. In the Yahushaic Covenant, Yahusha is the Bridegroom and the rest of Yahuah’s sons are the Bride. The covenant was consummated with blood; the 144,000 chosen from among the 12 tribes of Israel called Remnant Israel are “virgins” and so forth.

In the Abrahamic Covenant The Law of Yahuah was transposed from the Mind of Yahuah to our forefathers verbally as we read below, “Abraham Obeyed My Voice” and kept The Law of Yahuah:

Gen 26:5 – KJV – Abrahamic Covenant
5 Because that Abraham Obeyed My Voice (Yahuah communicated the Law verbally transposing it from His mind to oral tradition), and kept My Charge, My Commandments, My Statutes, and My Laws.

So obviously in Galatians, Sha’ul was talking about “The Written Law” came 430 years after the Promise to Abraham.

Galatians 3 – Law transposed to stone 430 years earlier
The (written) Law, introduced (in stone) 430 years later, does not set aside the Covenant previously established by Yahuah and thus do away with the Promise.

We see below, that The Law of Yahuah was passed down orally to Jacob through his father Isaac… who received The Law from Abraham... who received it from Yahuah’s Voice:

Ps 147:19-148:1 – KJV – The Law passed down orally to all our forefathers
19 He sheweth His Word (The Torah) unto Jacob, His Statutes and His Judgments (The Law) unto Israel. 20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for His Judgments, they have not known them.

Second Transposition of the Law

The Law was transposed from oral to written in the Mosaic Covenant

In the Mosaic Covenant, The Law was transposed from oral tradition to written in stone. Let me clearly establish that the Commandments of Yahuah are Eternal to Israel (His chosen sons) - the bloodline of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob. They are for "all time" Eternal past and future, they are an Everlasting Covenant, forever.

Deut. 4
39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that Yahuah is Elohim in heaven above and on the Earth below. There is no Other. 40 Keep His Decrees and Commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you (perpetual no end) and that you may live long (Eternal Life - physical to Spiritual parallel) in the land Yahuah your Elohim gives you (the Promised Land - Kingdom of Yahuah - physical to Spiritual parallel) for all time (Eternal Permanent Ordinances).

Isaiah declares that it is the disobedience to The Laws of Yahuah, the violation of these Statutes, and the breaking of the EVERLASTING Covenant (which is the Sabbath Covenant), that the Earth is defiled and falls under a curse and is utterly destroyed at the end.

Isaiah 24 - Yahuah’s Devastation of the Earth
1 See, Yahuah is going to lay waste the Earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants….

3 The Earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. Yahuah has spoken this Word. 4 The Earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the Earth. 5 The Earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed The Laws, violated the Statutes and broken the Everlasting Covenant (the Sabbath). 6 Therefore (because we have abolished His Law and changed His Sabbath to Sunday) a curse consumes the Earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore Earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

I don’t know about you, but as for me and my house… we will study His Law and keep His Sabbath. I for one want to enter His Kingdom and be one of the “very few left” after Yahuah purges the Earth of those who deny His Law. I don’t want to be told “depart from me you Law breaker” by Yahusha and I don’t want to be rounded up and kicked out of the Kingdom for disobedience!

Matthew 13:41
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all causes of sin and all Law-breakers,

When you understand that The Law is the governing constitution of the Kingdom of Yahuah and literally the marriage vows of His Covenants, you realize only those who have it “written on their hearts” will be qualified to govern. If you truly Love Yahuah, that Love is demonstrated by keeping His Law:

1 John 5:3
In fact, this is Love for Yahuah: to keep His Commands. And His Commands are not burdensome

Only those with a “heart for His Law” and Lovingly keep the Marriage Vows will be found trustworthy of Eternal Life. Yahuah can’t have a bunch of Lawless Unfaithful Eternal beings running around trying to govern the Universe in unrighteousness, now can He?  Those who abolish The Law (Law breakers) will not make it past the “gatekeeper” Yahusha. They will be told “depart from me, I know you not, you who practice disobedience to The Law”.

Third Transposition of the Law

The Law was transposed from written to Spiritual Intent in the Yahushaic Covenant

Once The Law was gradually introduced to man over time orally from Adam through Abraham until Moses, then written in stone in detail, it was transposed to Spiritual intent in the Yahushaic Covenant. Sha’ul was well aware of this fact:

Hebrews 10:16 The Law is the foundation of New Covenant

This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says Yahuah. I will put My Laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.

Yahusha’s primary mission was to fulfill (transpose) The Law of Yahuah, especially as it related to the Spring Feasts of Passover/Unleavened Bread/First Fruits/Shavuot.

Matthew 5 - The Fulfillment of The Law

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish The Law (Torah) or the Prophets (The Torah and Prophets are what we in error call, ‘the Old Testament’. So, Yahusha said Yahuah’s Word wasn’t abolished and is not “old” after all); I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them (bring them to their fullest meaning and Spiritual application through transposition). 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and Earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen (all 613 Laws remain), will by any means disappear from The Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these Commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven (that is if such a person even enters the Kingdom), but whoever practices and teaches these Commands (The Law) will be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your Righteousness (defined as Obedience to The Law) surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of The Law, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of heaven. (by this he meant The Law would be strengthened to attitude not the act. By applying The Law to Spiritual Intent, we can surpass the outward Righteousness of the Pharisees)

Ezekiel prophesied the same transposition of The Law in the New Covenant:

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.


 

Galatians 3:24-29
 The Law Is Our Teacher: In Order That All Subject to The Law, Might Be Redeemed by The Messiah

Galatians 3:24-29
Proper Translation in Context

24 So in this (that the Law reveals our sin and creates a need for a Mediator), the Law is our teacher, leading us into Covenant with the Messiah (Luke 24: 25, Romans 2: 13) so that we might be justified through the Faith (which is demonstrated through works of The Law, James 2:14-26).

25 But now that the Faith has come, are we no longer under the training of that teacher?

26 For you all are sons of Yahuah (Romans 8: 14 -- Spirits of sons. Romans 8: 19 -- Manifestations. II Corinthians 6: 18 -- My Sons. Galatians 4: 5 -- Adoptions. Ephesians 3: 5 -- Not made known to sons of men. Philippians 2: 15 -- Sons of Yahuah. Hebrews 2: 10 -- Many sons to Glory. Hebrews 12: 7 -- As with son. I John 3: 1-2 – gods, sons of the Most High Psalms 82:6. Then are you sons. Galatians 3: 29) through the Faith (which establishes The Law, works are proof of that Faith) in (Covenant with) Yahusha Messiah (John 17:19-21).

27 For as many of you as have been Mikveh’d into The Yahushaic Covenant, like the Messiah you must become (conformed to his Righteous example, Romans 9:29 and 1 John 2:6).

28 Is there not the Yahdai as well as the Greek; Gentile? Is there not the slave as well as the freeman? Is there not the male and the female? For all of you must be in unity (one with Yahuah) in Covenant with Yahusha the Messiah (John 17:19-21)..

John 17

19“For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who enter into Covenant with me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in (Covenant with) me and I in (Covenant with) You, that they also may be in (covenant with) Us, so that the world may believe that You sent me. 22 “The Glory which You have given me I have given to them, that they may be one family, just as We are one family; 23 I in (covenant with) them and You in (covenant with) me, that they may be perfected in unity in the family of Elohim

29 And if you are (one with Yahuah) as the Messiah (is one in covenant, John 17:19-21. Hebrew lamed, meaning as. A Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament by Brown, Driver, and Briggs, Page 512. q. After Melchizedek. Hebrews 6: 20, Hebrews 7: 1-3. Remember Genesis 18: 18. Teach them Yahuah's Way. Matthew 7: 21, do the will of Yahuah) then you are a seed of Abraham, heirs according to the Promise.) Then you are heirs to the Promise of Abraham’s seed (co-heirs with Yahusha Romans 8:17).
