Different vs Same
We’re all looking at the same Scripture/Bible; yet we are polarized at opposite ends of the spectrum. The Church by and large says it all changed – While the Jews including Hebrew Roots, Messianic, etc. say it all is the same – Neither of these positions is totally correct.
2Cor.3:11 ‘… that which is passing away was glorious, much more that which remains
2Cor.3:13 ‘… the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which
You may remember from “The Rightly Dividing Point” dealing with ‘remain’; that we have a problem. “We intelligently know that ‘remain’ cannot be ‘remain’ unless it was established before – Right? But by the same token there is no awareness sense to use ‘remain’ as an informational marker in a sentence unless something did not ‘remain’ – Right? What we now have is a ‘both-and’ situation not an ‘either-or’; we have to use discernment. For that we must let the Bible interpret itself. The Apostle Paul is an indispensable resource, for he deals with these Gospel-Torah matters guided by Yahshua (Gal.1:11-12) studied for three years (v:18).”
The Apostle/exPharisee Paul is demonstrating something very profound; a mid position – The Church is incorrect to say, hold to & teach that ‘it all changed’ for the positive side of ‘remain’ does not allow for this to be true. Some thing/s does/do continue that was established before. Before the Birth, Death and resurrection of Yahshua Messiah.
The Jews (on the other hand) including Hebrew Roots, Messianic, etc. are also incorrect to say, hold to & teach that ‘nothing has changed’ for the negative side of ‘remain’ does not allow for this to be true either. Some thing/s does/do NOT continue that were established before.
This is further evidenced by;
Gen 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, *until* Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Ezk.20:24 Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols. 25 Wherefore I gave them *also* statutes that were ~Not~ good, and judgments whereby they should ~Not~ live;
Heb 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron 12 For the priesthood being *changed*, there is made of necessity a *change* also of the law.
Mt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to
destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one
tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till *all* be fulfilled. (brought to it’s fullest accomplished meaning)
This would have to include Gen 49:10 (change) being fulfilled in Yahshua’s Earthly lifetime at His 1st coming. This ‘change’ is a reversion back to the Melkizedeq original; minus all the Levitical additions brought on by Covenant breach/breaking (Read Ex.32 and understand Num.3:12).
