I feel compelled by the Ruach to totally attack the two greatest deceptions of our modern age.
1. Dispensationalism: Althought there are as many flavors of this doctrine as ice-cream, the basic premise is that YHVH operated through ages: the age of conscience, the age of the law, the age of grace, etc. Depending on the age one lives in affects our relation to YHVH and His commandments.
2. Replacement Theology: Rooted in hatred for Jews and anti-semitism, this doctrine states that YHVH is totally finished with the Jewish people, Israel and demands for Jews to live like pagan Gentiles in a largely paganized christian church.
Both of these doctrines feed the other, support the other and BOTH ARE TOTALLY OPPOSED TO THE RENEWED COVENANT.
Do we not read in both Malachi and in Hebrews that YHVH, even YahShua DOES NOT CHANGE? He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
So how the hell could YHVH change the way He operates with us, if HE DOES NOT CHANGE?????
Yah is NOT a respector of persons.
Yet if a person from the "age of law" is compared to a person from "the age of grace" they are judged by two different standards of righteousness; the former must keep Torah, the latter does not. HOW ABSURD!!! HOW TOTALLY UNSCRIPTURAL!
Exodus 12 declares there IS ONE TORAH for the Israelite and the Gentile.
Ephesians 2 DECLARES THERE IS NO JEW AND GENTILE -- BUT WE ARE ALL ONE, GRAFTED INTO THE COMMONWEALTH OF YISRAEL. The Jewish Torah is FOR EVERYONE. Messiah Himself was a Jew!!!!
Replacement theology is laughable but helps to undergird the foolish doctrine of Preterism. Romans 11 plainly declares that it is GENTILES WHO MUST HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND BE GRAFTED INTO THE JEWISH OLIVE TREE.
The olive tree is Yisrael and, even more specifically, YahShua. Thus the olive tree on both counts IS JEWISH.
Paul declares the oracles of YHVH were delivered to the Jews and this is why Paul says THERE IS GREAT ADVANTAGE IN EVERY WAY TO BEING A JEW.
Now, of course, the Jews who despise YahShua and follow Talmud rather than the Torah are as pagan as the Gentiles.
But the Jew who loves Messiah and keeps every jot and tittle of Torah is declared, by Paul, TO HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OVER CONVERTED GENTILES!
The christian gentile need to humble themselves, begging to be grafted into Yisrael and her Torah.
Enough with the foolishness of dispensationlism and replacement theology. These two ideas which sprang from that heretic Marcion in the 2nd century have birthed more strange children of deception than I can even count.
