{Revised} Salvation Through The Torah & The Living Word For The Jews First & The Gentile

Salvation Through The Torah; The Living Word; For Those Who Are Still Seeking the Truth!

~@ROliverLuce | 03-23-17 [Revised]

Introduction

.
I am responding to certain Facebook questions & entries regarding “exposing missionaries,” how we (both Jews & Gentiles who love Adonai) are ALL missionaries, and how Jews are saved from their daily sins through requirements that are possible only from Adonai’s power of His love. And I will go into detail what I am talking about! Questions and responses are welcome.

{Revised} Salvation Through The Torah & The Living Word & For Those Who Are Still Seeking the Truth!

.
Why “expose missionaries?” I will first say many Christian groups do NOT know God as their complete wisdom (not the wisdom without Torah). Thus many do not depend on and go to Adonai for ‘wisdom’ that leads to reaching people wisely (with a pure heart) FOR the TRUTH without pushing nor lording it over people! Instead, many Christian or Messianic Jewish missionaries offend the Jews without listening to Adonai’s voice.

But it’s also true that the ‘heavenly Torah’ [the living Word, from the mouth of Adonai] may be convicting Jews as well. So let us be honest and be content that we know Adonai intimately through the Word and earnest prayer. We’re all sinners. There is a God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob that does judge and discern for which cause there will be a judgment in the end.

We can be confident of what it says in Romans chapter two and in the book of the “Tanakh” that if we are genuine seekers of the Truth, in word and deed, Adonai is the AUTHOR and we will discover that He is the Author! BUT, I say this only to PROVE that those who are blind (do not know) to what Adonai has made known (Torah) and to who is the author of the TRUTH, will NOT have this confidence in seeking the truth for their life.
The Jews have Adonai’s written Torah for their salvation. If they rely on Adonai’s love and grace for empowerment in keeping the Torah, they do well and will have the confidence! Because with Adonai’s forgiveness their consciences are cleared even as they are still waiting for THE MESSIAH to fulfill all things in the Torah. However, when a Jew realizes the Messiah, HE must compel himself to accept Adonai’s Word into his own heart as an act of circumcision of his heart! As for many Gentiles, many do give up and embrace their sins and fail to do what is right because of their lack of confidence!

For this cause we are missionaries to the NATIONS; all of us, the Jews first and the Gentiles who embrace the author of the TRUTH, the Messiah who covers our sins through the Covenant of Adonai as we can visualize from Genesis 15:17 {CJB version}. In this passage is where Adonai and His Spirit of Love pass through the two pieces of flesh that represent Adonai’s WORD of promise (the Truth)!

To reiterate about those who are seeking the truth without the realization of knowing the Torah and the Messiah, allow me to explain in closing. The Jews are saved from their sin condition through the Torah and what it means to follow the Torah for salvation. It would mean to know that the Torah can only be kept through continually accepting Adonai’s unconditional graciousness and forgiveness of sins daily. Thus repentance of sin is crucial to Adonai’s forgiveness when their conscience comes to a realization of [a] sin, but not false guilt.

Salvation Through The Torah & The Living Word & For Those Who Are Still Seeking the Truth!

We can be confident of what is says in Romans chapter 2 [please bear with me here!] AND in the “Tanakh” that if we are genuine seekers of the Truth (in word and deed) of which Adonai is the AUTHOR we will find Him who is the Author! BUT, I say this only to PROVE that those who are blind (do not know) to what Adonai has made known (Torah) and who the author of the TRUTH is, will NOT have this confidence in seeking the truth for their life.

The Coming Judgment on God’s Return on Investment

~@ROliveLuce | 05-28-15

Regarding the soon coming judgment upon all of us, God will be looking for a return on investment from each one of us!

What talents and gifts HE (God) has given us and what we have done with them while in our frail flesh will be examined whether we had HIS spirit, HIS attitude, HIS grace in us or not, i.e. the spirit of truth.

The real question is did we use what HE had given us with an attitude of having the Spirit of Truth while in our corruptible flesh? Those who seek the Truth (in attitude) in all matters will be on the side of God’s “Word of Promise.” If presented with HIS “Word” we would see it! HIS “Word of Promise” is the salvation that covers many of our sins, even all of them!

Because under HIS “Word of Promise” there is hope that we can be forgiven and strengthen that we may rise above our constant failings and omissions! The question here would be if we were presented with HIS “Word” did we accept HIS “Covenant of Promise” that we would be hidden from God’s coming stark judgment that is almost without hope because of the lack of TRUSTING in HIS “truth,” HIS “Word of Promise?

Even hidden within HIS “Word of Promise” we shall all be judged as well with what we have done with HIS hope and HIS Holy inspiration (the Holy Spirit). Our purpose is that we do the exploits in furthering HIS kingdom while on this Earth in Trusting in HIS Spirit, even while in our corruptible flesh. There will be rewards depending on what we have done with HIS Spirit of Promise” in obedience and dependence on HIM.

But as for those who may have never heard or were honestly confused about God’s “Word of Truth,” HIS “Word of Promise” there is the possibility of being judged rightly by our God who is righteous all the time! Romans 2:7 and Romans 2:14, 15 explains HIS grace here on the basis of HIS goodness. But Romans 2:16 does confirm we all shall be judged through HIS “Word of Promise,” HIS “Spirit of Truth.” Therefore it is imperative we accept the author of Truth who is God’s “Word of Promise” that we may be hidden from the stark judgment that is coming upon the Earth (2 Corinthians 5:10).

A Framework of Understanding: 3 Steps Toward A Special Marriage

~ROliverLuce | 05-05-15

That’s right! To put growth & maturity into a structural framework, we might see the progression of maturity possibly for our simple understanding.

We are drawn by God’s love & grace and we accept it through HIS Word of Truth (the Son) with our repentance and obedience and this is part of the Covenant what is called the ‘blood covenant’ (the servant covenant) as we initially commit to by our repentance and our dying to self even MORE importantly through our professing IT in baptism symbolizing our death to sin. 🙂 Could I say this more clearly?

Oh, but we’re faced with becoming friends with Yeshua! That comes through familiarity. I guess that must be prayer, intercession, and praising HIS character that it might get into us, among other actions and attitudes. A covenant name for our friendship with God through His priesthood in approaching the Father is called the ‘Salt Covenant’ a step up in our ongoing maturity in Christ.

But we aren’t through yet in approaching the Marriage supper of the lamb yet. From our journey through ‘Salt,’ we come into yet another covenant of promise! The ‘covenant of inheritance’ what the Hebrew Torah calls the ‘Sandal covenant.’ Sandal as in foot-ware, lol. Here as friends with the Father’s ‘Word of Truth’ we begin to understand our future and our hope that opens up our inheritance! A whole world opening up to the promise of an eventual marriage to God the FATHER’s ‘Word of Truth & Promise’ for all eternity!

Well, like I mentioned above our ongoing maturity is much more dynamic than having to go through each mini-covenant of the Father’s Covenant (Genesis 15:17) rather than going through each stage separately. God’s character of common sense (if you will) tells us this :-).

Thanks for listening to my take on our coming marriage with Yeshua that is… to be! 🙂

Free Will is about Love; Without Free Will there is No Relationship

~@ROliverLuce | 04-27-15

Calvinism in Christianity was born in the midst of European Catholicism and became part of America’s Christian foundation in the beginning. Our forefathers heeded the Lord in those days but have since then we are learning from the scriptures and the revelation of God in nature that God is a relational Lord who loves us so, even as a hurricane!

The Chief Reason why “free will” is important to God is attitude and the acceptance of His Covenant Word. For without a receptive and a repenting attitude and a willingness to accept God’s Covenant Word, His Son, there is only the rejection of God’s love and there is no salvation without blood. Blood was the payment for the law of sin & death to be released so we can be free through His payment.

So God showed His love by paying this debt. And it must be said, love can never be dictated nor demanded a relationship. God, after all, is the author of what relationships are supposed to mean!

Law and judgment are that cause alone, the dictating of righteousness to ensure it is the rule. And that rule is the requirement that the law of sin and death be fulfilled for which God did demonstrate His love through His Son dying to pay that debt of the law of sin and death.  So, again, we might be saved from it and thereby doing it with a willing Spirit through the promise and the encouragement of His living Word!

Therefore, it is up to the inheritors of salvation to believe, to accept, and to receive the gift that was paid! A gift of salvation free of the law of sin and death.

Who are the inheritors? Those of us who have been born on the earth. We have that choice between the spirit of life (salvation from ourselves) or the spirit of death (separation from God) for eternity.

And with all this said. It’s the Father’s Covenant that is dependent on our agreement to accept a gift of God’s living Word. That Word sealed a deal on His only Covenant that we might accept His way and not find our own way, to god, in knowing the difference between good and evil. Always searching for a set of laws that we might lean back and enjoy our self-created righteousness and joys without God’s presence and help.

The Mystery of God’s Hebraic “Word of Promise” & His Death to Save us from Sin

~ROliverLuce | 04-10-15

[ Why did Jesus, the Christ, die on the cross, and in doing so, did it for our sins that He might remarry us in a Ketubah? Why? ]

This is where the “Tanakh” (the OT) book comes into the spotlight! The “Renewed Covenant” (the NT) book explains and reveals the progressive enlightened salvation in a book what we call the Old Testament (OT) that culminates in God’s living “Word of Sacrifice & Promise” coming in the form of sinful flesh for our salvation!

Now to explain a little how the Old Testament (OT) and the New Testament (NT) works together to reveal our salvation first!
The Old Testament is all about God’s Covenant from God’s Word of Promise. It also is about the story of man’s sin nature and God’s progressive revelation of His Word of Promise to come! That His Word (which He spoke) will come in the flesh to show the way! No more will we have to have “initial FAITH” in God’s Word to [then] bring an animal sacrifice any longer! But now with God’s progressive revelation of His Word of Promise we see the bridegroom giving His life for us that our payment for our sins is now paid in full. This is where “our FAITH” in God will now reside! It resides in His Son, His living Word forever!

Finally, I want to bring this into the picture! The ancient Hebrew marriage and wedding process is spelled out in the structure, the story and the details of the ancient Hebrew Ketubah. Ketubah is the Hebrew word for the Jewish marriage Covenant process made up of three actual sub or mini-covenants leading up the marriage covenant ceremony its self-described and outlined in the Old Testament (Tanakh).

So, the Hebrew marriage covenant would always progress through the three mini-covenant steps(1) with the bridegroom who must be committed all the way with no excuses(2) except in the very beginning of the door opening by the bride to be! The bride is able to pull out at any time during the first three steps in the process prior to the marriage covenant. But if they both become married and she becomes impure (by another) or is found to be impure the result is a death in those rough and ancient days of old. [Life was tough with many demands in society then.] This is where the groom has four choices of which one is, if he chooses, will pay the fee of death with his death to pay for her impurity or sins! So God wants to re-marry us through His Word of Promise he will pay the bill for our sins by dying for us in our stead. And in actuality HE puts the law of sin and death on mute for our sakes. This is the meaning of Christ’s death and subsequent rising from the dead.

Now to clarify and summarize: The first five books we call the Torah is the actual description and outline of the “Ketubah” in the book of “Tanakh” (OT)!!

(1) The three sub or mini-covenants within God’s main overall Covenant of salvation (Gen.15:17) are the Blood Covenant, the Salt Covenant, and the Sandal Covenant.

(2) Except when he discovers the bride to be impure from which he has several options.

Earnestly Teaching the Chosen Ones in Christ

~R.OliverLuce | 02-06-15

The teacher of the Word of Salvation must endure all trouble with faithfulness for the sake of the ‘chosen’, those who “love the truth.”

It must be understood that those who do NOT love nor SEEK the truth will be sent a delusion as like in the case of pharaoh in Moses era. The apostasy, attitude of unrighteousness, sin, and foolishness begins in the heart and manifests outwardly afterwards, with the acceptance of any level of obsession and evil. The delusion that God allows is the judgement of unrepentant sin, i.e. Homosexuality for example is the judgment upon them.

Verse Reference:
2Timothy 2:10
“For this reason I [Apostle Paul] endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen [those who love/seek the truth], so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus [through continual obedience] and with it eternal glory.”

To Save a Republic with Prayer Through the Word & Bravery

~R.OliverLuce | 01-23-15

This is our attitude that we pray and intercede with SHOES on our prayers to take the stand in the PUBLIC SQUARE without abrasiveness nor guilt but with the Word of Knowledge mixed with WISDOM that we will see evil put down and righteousness promoted in God’s good timing!

In order for a free people to secure their Republic
who may consider themselves as the righteous who go by MY NAME** will humble themselves, turn from their wickedness & religious sins, and seek ME** then shall I** heal their land.

And further more, the righteous will then have the power to win many over to righteousness that a republic might be saved; That many will be at peace.

And they shall also gain HIS strength and HIS power to stand against evil principalities and powers in the public square that STAND AGAINST the Kingdom of God, and the Lord will prevail in all seven mountains. This is bravery that men will stand in the gap and over rule evil with God’s Word of Strength.
The truth will prevail and truth is a person.
2Chr.7:14 {NASB}

(**God)
The people rejoice when evil men are put down! This we shall earnestly intercede towards before God!
Proverbs 29:2 {NASB}

We can be numbed by evil men who have been promoted.
Psa.38:8 {NASB}

The people cry out and are badly crushed by foolish evil, yet God will not listen until the people turn!
Job 24:12 {NASB}

Turning the Other Cheek? Wisdom is knowing when to cheek and when to protect?

~R.OliverLuce | 01-19-15

Mr. Pope, tear down your walls of religiosity. Do you really understand the Word of God from the point of view of the truth? Truth is a person! Truth is not dead law! But the law is set for those who disobey the SPIRIT OF THE LAW, in seeking the truth to be respectful in spirit to everyone around.

Turning the other cheek? Come on, listen to what Jesus the Charismatic one is saying!

Turning the other cheek deals with confrontations that DO NOT involve protecting one’s family, one’s country, one’s home, one’s responsibilities. ABOVE ALL one’s responsibilities!

Your responsibilities to protect something, somebody, or your community must be maintained with your dependence on God’s help as well without arrogance. Now is the time to ignore the Catholic religion who does not understand THIS vast difference between cheek’ing it and standing it; It’s about knowing WHEN to turn the other cheek and when to goto war if necessary. It is in the Word of God. So help us God this Pope will listen to the Holy Spirit who is the author of wisdom.

Just in Time in Preparation of The Bride of Christ for HIS Return

Just in time for full maturity and wisdom for the bride to be accepted by God’s Son, who is God’s living Word of Promise from HIS mouth! This bride is the Church of CHRIST in full maturity; That is to say it knows how to get back up from it’s sin with grace knowing who they (the church) are in Christ.

It’s ALL COMING TOGETHER** with the church waking up to the revelation of it’s full maturity (ready for marriage to the LAMB) in realizing & obeying it’s JEWISH COVENANT steps that displays the path to intimately knowing our Lord & our GOD. We shall be a BRIDE ready to receive HIM as the Word returning for HIS bride to be sure!!

All this hidden since the Greek influence on the Church AFTER the era of the book of ACTS and the Hebraic Pauline epistles which were written both in Hebrew and Greek had long passed!

For a thousand years the Church followed their savior and Lord with a blindness to an intimate knowledge of the COVENANT NATURE of the walk in Christ that could have been and now is!!

This Covenant nature of the whole gospel of the Word of God, hidden for a century, details the process of how we know our God with works from the ‘Spirit of Restoration’ with the express purpose of being involved intimately with God as in the beginning of all time in the garden when Adam and Eve were innocents without knowledge but with complete trust in HIM.

This understanding comes from knowing the Tanakh and the B’rit Hadashah, an Hebraic approach instead of the traditional Greek hermeneutics approach which is unable to bring out the more certain details of our salvation!
All this just in time for the maturity and the development of a bride ready for the return of the LIVING WORD of GOD in the flesh!!

** The final but developing mass sneak attack on Israel, recent demands for building the 3rd temple by the Jews, and the fulfilling of Matthew 24:14!
