Mat.15:3 But he (Yahshua) answered and said unto them (scribes and Pharisees v:1), Why do ye also transgress the commandment of Yah by your tradition?
We have to realize who we are talking to, to properly assess the potential viability of the information (or dis-information) being promulgated to accept. In too many cases the Gospel-Torah observant are predisposed to Jewish thought which can be most useful. However alluring, we must use discernment. It must be remembered whether it be Orthodox to Karaite reasoning bottom-line they do not believe in Yahshua. So for them nothing has ‘changed’ (2Cor.3:13-15). Everything is just as it was. There is no reason to see or search for a ‘Rightly Dividing Point’ (2Tm.2:15). The reality of Gen.49:10 has not happened. Judah still retains the scepter of rule, the Levites (although usurped by the Rabbis – an un-scriptural ‘change’ in itself) still dispense and interpret law. This and other prophesies (such as Ps.110) must be assigned to another meaning/conclusion that does not include Yahshua, Yahshua as Melchizedek High Priest (Heb. Chapters 2 through 13), His re-New-ed Melkizedeq Covenant or the viability of a Melkizedeq Priesthood. Which is when you think of it a ‘replacement theology’ – a Jewish ‘replacement theology’ to protect what in second place always has been for 1,500 years (now 3,500) since the ‘golden calf’ breach that rendered the Hebrew/Israelite/Jewish nation ineligible to ever again be in the Melkizedeq Priesthood till the death and resurrection of Yahshua – the Melkizedeq High Priest.
It is amazing and most ironic when you think of it; that a Gospel-Torah observant Messianic would do just exactly that (buy into un-discerned Jewish thought) and use that to defend against or marginalize a brother Gospel-Torah observant Messianic who happens to see the Jewish thought fallacies of some key issues in the Torah-TaNaK-Bible record. To not allow for the legitimate change back to the original by asserting what has in secondary/in-lieu-of/ concession has for the interim been (now for some 3500 yrs.); is an inverted replacement theology. Christians have theirs; and Jews have theirs. It is a travesty that there are so many at the ready to defend in favor of what has always been taught and understood, over that which can be known. Even more so, over that which can be biblically proven. Yet at the same time we must have safeguards to ferret out truth from error and outright lies. I will speak for myself; it is for that reason I choose and determine to stay as close as is possible to what the Bible, to what the Torah actually says.
2Cor.3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is **abolished**:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Messiah:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
