Torah Restoration Ministries

Evangelist Daniel John Lee

And to the angel of the congregation in Philadelphia write -- These things says He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the Key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens.  I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name . . ."



Does Torah Fit Into Prophecy?

Very much so! One of the strongest arguments as to why believers should keep Torah is the very fact that so much prophecy clearly states that everyone on planet earth will be commanded to keep Torah in the Millenial reign of the Messiah. Zachariah chapter 14 discusses this period of time. In this passage we learn that YahShua will command all the tribes of the earth to come up to Jerusalem once a year to observe the Feast of Tabernacles. Those who fail to comply will be punished with drought.

Isaiah 66:17 prophesies that those who eat unclean animals (such as pig) will be cut off and destroyed. "For by fire and by his sword will YHVH plead with all flesh: and the slain of YHVH shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith YHVH."

These two references alone show that YahShua still places a very high premium on Torah observance and will in fact enforce, at the very least, the dietary laws and the Feast of Tabernacles in the future. Of course we know it makes very little sense for YahShua to only enforce two Torah commandments, and the above is merely an indication that He will enforce the entire Torah on mankind in the future.

So, from a prophetic point of view, the Torah will be kept by all those living in YahShua's kingdom. If, as believers, we are part of that kingdom, should we not keep Torah? What better way to prepare for eternity?
