thither Definition: (adverb) To or toward that place.
Usage: The bell has a tone that is wondrous sweet; let us stroll thither, and examine the matter nearer.
The Torah leads us toward YahShua, let us keep Torah that we might be led thither.
In the ReNEWed Covenant we understand that the telos, or goal of the Torah and the Prophets leads us toward YahShua. If Torah does point us thither, into YahShua's very heart and mind, why are Christians so opposed to submitting to the Torah?
Could it be, as Romans declares, that the carnal mind cannot submit to the Torah of Moshe? Indeed.
Over these past 55 days of preaching and exalting Torah on this forum, I have demonstrated through dozens and dozens of articles, scriptures, etc that the Torah of Moshe does indeed point us toward YahShua and keeps us close to the heart and mind of Messiah. For but one example of this, please visit www.TorahandSpirit.com and read The Edietic Torah.
Torah, as it is perfect in converting even the most wretched soul, is also perfect in keeping that soul wholly converted. The laws of Torah teach our bodies and spiritual lives discipline, excercise, making us strong in the faith. Observance of Torah naturally seperates us from the Babylonian and wordly christian world around us. Torah sanctifies us and keeps us clean.
Yet Christians the world over fight tooth and nail against submitting to Torah, claiming that "old jewish law stuff" was done away with at the "cross". Fact is, Torah brings us toward YahShua, the devil knows this, so he has tricked Christians into believing the Torah is not necessary.
A proper interpretation and observance of every jot and tittle of Torah will always bring a man or woman to YahShua and keep the same close to YahShua. This is not theory but fact. If The Jews would repent of their Talmud and man-made traditions, sticking soley to Torah, they too would easily come to the Messiah YahShua.
Torah, in the last days, will be the mark upon our lives that identifies us with YHVH. It will be His seal. It will outwardly prove that we are truly baptized with the Ruach ha Kadosh. Those who reject Torah observance will receive a different mark -- the mark of the Beast. Those who receieve this mark will burn in the Lake of Fire forever. Both marks lead thither; the former toward YahShua, the latter toward eternal damnation.
It will all come down to one's fidilety toward the Word -- toward observing and obeying the Torah of Moshe.
How many multiplied millions of Christians would bow before the anti-messiah right now because they have already, practically, received his mark by resisting the need to keep Torah! Yet YHVH shows mercy to the whore of a church by restraining the wicked one and sending His people to bring Chrstians back to Torah.
But this time of mercy will not last forever.
Repent, Christians, pastors, street and campus preachers on this forum -- keep every jot and tittle of Torah to place a smile on Rabbi YahShua's face -- or burn in the Lake of Fire forever.
