The Love And The Law Of Elohim

The Love And The Law Of Yahweh

The love and the law of Yahweh is of utmost importance for every single human being to know and to understand. Many religious people sincerely believe that Yahshua the Messiah (“Jesus”) did away with His Father’s (Yahweh) Laws, including the Ten Commandments , and substituted a new set of laws that are sometimes referred to as “the Law of ‘Christ or Jesus.'” And what does this change amount to? When you boil down all the mental gymnastics, it is basically another way of them saying: “Throw out the Ten Commandments, and resurrect nine of them.” Today we’re going to address a lot of the misconceptions or wrong ideas surrounding this biblical topic. Truth is priceless and it can never be bought and we want you to know that.  As always, we ask Yahweh’s Holy Spirit for the wisdom to teach and preach about this to you. May you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear this true and faithful heavenly message. May the truth we’re about to present to you set you free from the enslaving yolk of sin and the bondage of disobedience.

The apostle John is often described as “the Apostle of love” because love—especially the love of Yahweh—is a key theme in his writings. Considering what he wrote, it may seem odd that so few people recognize the connection John makes between Elohim’s love and His Law. For example, it is John who records Yahshua’s explanation of how we show love to Him. On the night He was betrayed, Yahshua said: “If you love Me, keep My commandments…He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me” (John 14: 15, 21). John also recorded these comments of Yahshua: “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love” (John 15:10). Yes, very clearly in his writings, John very strongly disagrees with those who would try to reason around Elohim’s Law. In his first epistle, he writes plainly and clearly about the connection between law-keeping and love, and he shows that we can’t separate the two: “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not really keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of Elohim is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2:3-6). Now the Bible through John can’t be any clearer!

Furthermore, very few professing Christians are willing to argue that it is acceptable to have other gods before the true Elohim, that it is okay to bow down to images and idols, and that it does not matter if you take Elohim’s name and run it through the gutter, or dishonor your parents, kill, commit adultery, steal, lie or covet. Only if you insist on treating the Bible’s Fourth Commandment like the other nine, and assert that we must observe the seventh-day Sabbath as instructed in the Bible, then you are accused of “legalism.” Opponents of the seventh-day Sabbath reason that if you try to keep the Sabbath, you are trying to save yourself by your works. But do they honestly use the same logic regarding any of the other commandments? If you honor your parents, are you trying to save yourself by works? What if you do not commit murder? If you refrain from adultery or stealing, are you trying to save yourself apart from Elohim’s grace? If any one insists that keeping one commandment is an attempt at “salvation by works,” then how can one avoid applying the same reasoning to the other nine of the Ten Commandments? Obedience is not a spectacular virtue, but it is at the basis of all true Christian service. Any one who claims to have the knowledge of Elohim but disobeys His commandments, John says forthrightly, is a liar, because the truth is not in him. By contrast, love for Elohim is perfected in all people who keeps His Word. Word signifies Yahweh’s commandments!

In closing, the apostle John defines the love of Elohim, explains how we can know that we love the children of Elohim, and refutes the fallacy that the Law of Yahweh is burdensome. “By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and keep His commandments. For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep His commandments. His commandments are not burdensome” (1 John 5:2-3). Has someone told you that Elohim’s laws are burdensome? The ones against idolatry, murder and adultery? Or is it that one about remembering the day Yahweh sanctified and blessed at creation (Genesis 2:1-3)? Clearly and plainly, the apostle John makes no distinctions whatsoever between The Commandments when he declares: “And His commandments are not burdensome.” So, whom should we all believe: the apostle John or some modern and “lawless” religious clerics? Perhaps you really need to read and to understand the connection between faith and grace in relation to Spiritual Law. We encourage you to read this. Just remember that we’re not here to condemn, ridicule or belittle anyone. We don’t force anyone to our faith and belief. Our main goal is to promote and proclaim the true Gospel of Yahshua to all the nations. And we’re happy to share the Good News of the coming Kingdom of Elohim to all the people. Yes, this is the love and the law of Yahweh that we must follow, therefore, let us continue to share our love, faith, hope and truth to others. May the Almighty Father in heaven bless and keep those who are the doers of His Word and not the hearers only. We pray all these things to Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah, our Master and King, Amen. Halleluyah and Shalom!
