Gen.49:10 ‘The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; …’
(Shiloh – epithet [another name] for Messiah i.e. Title of Yahshua)
Note; There are those that will assert and insist that ‘Shiloh’ Hebraically means ‘to whom it belongs’ – I have researched this and can find no such definitive thing. Be that as it may; who would argue that the Messiah is that one ‘to whom it belongs’?
Ams.3:7 Surely Yahweh will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.
This is more than a pronouncement (which is fundamental in itself) this is prophesy – ‘until’ being an awareness of impending change. That some would very much like to explain away. They would have a much easier time if it weren’t for the fact that the Apostle Paul (and others) gives evidence of this ‘change’ in the New Testament. The question to ask is; ‘where’d they get this stuff – Rabbi School?’ If that were so, the world should be filled with this knowledge but it’s not.
Gal 3:19 ‘Wherefore then serveth the law? (the Book of the Law v:10) It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; … ‘
Heb 9:10 ‘Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.’ – ‘Messianic restoration’.
Act 3:21 ‘ … until the times of restitution of all things …’ (Peter v:12)
Act 6:14 For we have heard him (Stephan v:8) say, that this (Yahshua) of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and *shall change* the customs which Moses delivered us.
Act 15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye (Yah), to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
Heb 7:12 ‘For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.’
(Please read Heb.7:1-17 for your full edification enjoyment)
Then there are also those (Hebrew Roots / Messianic, etc. – For the Jews deny that He came the 1st time) that will assert that; “until Shiloh come” (Gen.49:10) means the 2nd time when Yahshua Messiah returns as conquering King to set up His Kingdom. This would effectively delay any Melchizedek claim or change; while preserving the Aaronic/Levitical Priesthood mindset and its laws.
Gal 3:19 ‘Wherefore then serveth the law? (the Book of the Law v:10) It was added because of transgressions, *till the seed should come* to whom the promise was made; …’ (Gal.3:16)
Rom 1:3 Concerning his Son Yahshua Messiah our master, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Messiah (ie Shiloh).
[The One to whom it belongs – If you will; to coin a phrase]
“until Shiloh” returns? – ’till the seed should’ return? Rom.1:3, Gal.3:16; 19, etc. effectively renders this ‘2nd time’ position / assertion as unfounded and untenable; for ‘seed’ speaks of a start – an initial beginning. It speaks of the 1st time – It speaks of His birth. It speaks of His 1st advent/coming.
Remember Torah also states ‘that in the witness of two or three the matter is established’ (Dt.19:15/2Cor.13:1). This then is the awareness we must realize –
It is not a change of Torah to enact the change in Torah
;that has in fact always been right there in the pages of Torah i.e. the first five books of Moses.
‘What a revolt’n development’ – Yosemite Sam.
The truth of the matter becomes; to refuse the change that has always been there in Torah as prophesy is to ‘diminish ought’ from Torah (Dt.4:2; 12:32).
