If there is one thing Christianity does to the soul, it causes spiritual atrophy. By rejecting the eternal precepts found in the Torah of Moshe, the slumbering Christian is unable to remain spiritually strong or discplined. His spiritual senses are dulled and finds himself floundering in a torahless world.
Satan will busy the Christian with prayer meetings, attending church on Wednesdays and Sundays, attending Bible studies, and every other religous activity if he can but manage to prevent that Christian from actually doing the precepts found in Holy Writ.
Torah naturally strengthens the soul, draws it closer to Messiah, and provides a necessary excercise and discipline for the believer in Messiah. Those who reject Torah weaken themselves and refuse to guard their hearts and minds with the armor provided.
Is it any wonder that there is so much sin in the Christian camps today? From pastors to evangelists to various churches, denominations, even among the outdoor confrontatiol preachers. Sin is a festering stench among the christians and why should anyone be surprised -- they walk in daily trangression of Torah anyway, just daring the wicked one to guide them further into their transgressions.
Some people might point to believers who have not kept Torah but have maintained a holy and pure life. Perhaps a believer who is ignorant may walk in the grace of Yah, but once his ignorance is disspelled and he understands his obligation to obey Torah, that grace can no longer be extended.
No one on this list can claim ignorance, for I have labored for 59 days proving from scripture that believers in Messiah MUST keep Torah. To reject Torah in the face of all the evidence I have presented is to willfully choose rebellion and spiritual atrophy.
Rejecting Torah means you reject the Sword of the Spirit and the Shield of Faith by which you can defend against and attack the enemy. All your prayers, bible studies and church attendance will mean NOTHING should you fail to obey the commandments in Torah.
Your house, O Christians, is built upon sand, and the wind and waves will topple you. Only by building upon the Rock of Torah can you withstand that evil day.
It is a sober realization -- those of you on this list who continue to harden your heart against Torah will be given over to your delusions and made to believe a lie should you survive to the time of the anti-messiah. You will bow your knee to the very devil you claim to oppose.
WAKE UP, O CHRISTIAN! Rise up out of your slumber and spiritual atrophy and obey every jot and tittle of Torah! Provide oil for your lamps! The Bridegroom cometh! And many of you on this list are simply and sadly not ready.
