Chapter 11

The Mistranslated book of Romans

Much of the misunderstanding comes in the way our English Bibles were translated. They were translated very poorly (to put it mildly) and none of the translators were believing Jews (Nazarenes), they were Hellenized Jews and Greeks.


Law of the Land vs. The Law of Yahuah

Concerning The Law of Yahuah, the translators failed to distinguish when Sha’ul was talking about “the Law of the land”, and when Sha’ul was referring to The Law of Yahuah. They translated both as ‘the Law’ leaving those reading the English Bibles totally in the dark as to what Sha’ul was saying. We see in Sha’ul’s writings, the same battle between the “Talmud/Oral Traditions of the Pharisees” and “The Written Torah of Yahuah”. The “Law of the land” (in Sha’ul’s day) was the oral traditions of the Pharisees, the same foundation of Rabbinical Judaism today. The 6,200-page Babylonian Talmud. When Sha’ul was speaking against oral tradition, he would just use the word “nomos”. The word “nomos” or just “law” is any law whatsoever or the law of the land.  

When speaking of The Law of Yahuah, the Apostle Sha’ul used the Greek phrase “ho nomos” or THE Law. When Sha’ul added the article “ho” before “nomos” he was speaking of The Law of Yahuah.

We see that “nomos” without the article “ho” is not referring specifically to The Law of Yahuah, but to “any law whatsoever” or law of the land.

Nomoß - Strong's Number: 3551

  1. anything established, anything received by usage, a custom, a law, a command
    1. of any law whatsoever

This is not translated in our English Bibles, and we are not taught these things in our Christian Churches and learning centers that train our pastors. Therefore, many times when Sha’ul is speaking against the Takkanots (man-made commands) or Talmud (oral traditions), it is mistranslated as The Law and we are taught he is speaking against The Law of Yahuah. The translators literally went in and added the article “ho” in from of EVERY instance of “nomos”, twisting the meaning of the text. When Sha’ul is actually, like Yahusha, overturning the Rabbinical System of Takkanots! Sha’ul was a Nazarene.

In my book, The Nazarene; I am going to cover this, and much more concerning the writing of the Apostle Sha’ul. I am going to show that he was very much a Notsri or Nazarene, a keeper and protector of The Law, the Prophets, and the Messiah. Sha’ul carried forward the banner that both John the Baptist and Yahusha carried; to re-establish the Torah and overturn Rabbinical Judaism. That battle with the establishment, like John and Yahusha, cost Sha’ul his life at the hands of those who benefited from the established system in Jerusalem… The Pharisees, Sadducees, and their Roman benefactors. Many things concerning who Sha’ul was and what he taught, has been hidden from us. Much like the true Messiah has been Hellenized to be Greek appropriate, so too has Sha’ul. The degree our English Bibles have been altered and Hellenized should be obvious. We know the extensive use of impersonal pronouns such as he and him confuse the text by making it passive voice and not actively naming the subject with the use of proper names. Making false doctrine and various interpretations the order of the day.

We also know the title for Ba’al (which is The LORD) replaced the name Yahuah in the Babylonian Torah (the Torah coming out of Babylon). In our modern English translations, the Greek word for King, which is Kurios when referring to Yahusha, is translated The Lord instead of King or Ruler. The Greek word for God which is Theos is also translated as The LORD when referring to Yahuah. This further confuses the text. So by calling both Yahuah and Yahusha “Lord” instead of properly translating “God” for Yahuah and “King” for Yahusha, and then using impersonal pronouns “he/him” instead of their proper names, our English translations are very confusing to say the least! This enabled the false religion of Christianity to teach that Yahuah and Yahusha were the same person or a “Trinity”.

For the uninitiated (which is all Christian preachers and teachers who are without The Spirit of Holiness and do not understand the Mystery Language) it becomes difficult to discern who is being referred to with the impersonal pronouns and the use of the same title for both Yahuah and Yahusha. We know the translators added words to change the meaning of the text. We know the translators intentionally mistranslated other words as to imply their false doctrines or even wrote pagan philosophies onto the text as in John Chapter 1 and “Logos”. All of these mistranslations of the intent of the text, lead to false doctrines because the text is made so general and passive; it is hard to comprehend. Only those with The Spirit of Holiness within them, and the Seal of Yahuah over their minds, are capable of understanding Scripture. Those who speak the metaphorical language the Bible is encoded in. The “scribes” (translators) were under the influence of The Spirit of the False Messiah and The Spirit of Error. They handled the Word of Yahuah falsely as they twisted the Scriptures into Greek, and then Hellenized the Scriptures to remove the Hebraic Mindset:

Jeremiah 8:8

"'How can you say, "We are wise, for we have The Law of Yahuah," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?


2 Peter 3:16 – ESV

(The Apostle Sha’ul speaks in a Mystery Language) as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these (hidden) matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant (of this Mystery Language) and unstable (in their minds being filled with the Spirit of Error) twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

These Greek pagans, with The Spirit of Error, do just that; they err in all their understanding as they cannot comprehend the Word of Yahuah. This is true today too. Yahuah makes all their higher human degrees of learning into foolishness.

1 Corinthians 1

18 For the message of The Yahushaic Covenant (that Yahusha fulfilled The Law and Passover) is foolishness to those who are perishing (by keeping Easter over Passover and whose minds are not sealed by Yahuah), but to us who are being saved (by keeping Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice 1 Corinthians 5) it is the power of Yahuah. 19 For it is written: “I will destroy the (literal) wisdom of the (so-called) wise, And bring to nothing the (literal human) understanding of the prudent.” 20 Where is the (Spiritual) wise? Where is the (true) scribe? Where is the disputer of this age (true teacher)? Has not Yahuah made foolish the (literal human) wisdom of this world?

In my 30+ years serving Yahuah as a teacher, I have debated many doctorates in Theology. I have debated Jewish Rabbis, Catholic Priests, and Christian Theologians. Some of these men/women had achieved multiple Theological and Eschatological degrees and even degrees in the Greek and Hebrew languages. Not one of them demonstrated to me they truly understood the Scriptures.

They bring to me these same passages of Scripture (sound bite implied doctrines), and expect that I will simply lay down and surrender to their Spirit of Error simply because they have human degrees from human institutions.

They have shown themselves to be Spiritual fools as our debates developed. In every case these “experts in Theology” leave the debate, because they could not defend their beliefs. I overturned each and every one of their “tickle your ears sound bite implied doctrines” with sound doctrine and historical evidence of manipulation. You see, the gross manipulation of Scripture is not taught in these Christian seminaries! These seminaries teach the Word of Yahuah from a Hellenized Greek mindset, not the Hebraic Mindset the Bible was written in. The result is generation after generation of false teachers passing down the same Greek lies of Hellenism:

Jeremiah 16:19

Yahuah, my Strength and my Fortress, my Refuge in time of distress, to you the (Lost Sheep of the House of Israel scattered among the) nations will come from the ends of the Earth (just before Yahusha returns) and say, “Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies, worthless things (false doctrines), false gods, in which there is no profit (pertaining to Eternal life).

With all their human wisdom, Yahuah had brought their understanding to nothing. NOTE: each one of them had elevated the Antichrist Jesus Christ in their heart as God, with the exception the Jewish Rabbis, who have been blinded (to the Spiritual meaning of Passover). They had been given The Spirit of Error, and their minds perverted (given over to a depraved mind) as Yahuah promised. They simply did not speak the Mystery Language the Bible is written in, and did not understand the physical to Spiritual parallels. They approach the Scriptures with a literal carnal mindset, not the required Spiritual mindset.

The translators of the KJV Bible did not properly translate that very important distinction. The translators adding “ho” where Sha’ul simply said “nomos” making it appear, as though Sha’ul was speaking against THE LAW of Yahuah, when he was speaking instead against any general man-made law of the land or the Talmud which were human commands.

To make matters even worse, when the translators added the article “ho/the” to the text, they intentionally did not put the article “the”, in italics like they were supposed to. Every word added to Scripture was supposed to be indicated by italics. In this one case alone, where they added “ho” to “nomos” and inserted the word “the” before “law” they did not indicate the word “the” with italics. This was an intentional act by the original translators to abolish The Law of Yahuah and commit the Transgression of Desolation.

In this chapter, I am going to demonstrate the clear effects of the “nomos” vs. “ho nomos” effect on the meaning of Sha’ul’s letters.



Nomos vs. Ho Nomos

Romans chapter 3 verses 20 and 21 are a prime example of twisting Scripture and bearing false witness against the Apostle Sha’ul (by the Greek inspired Christian Church). In the verses below Sha’ul did not use the article “the” where I underline it; “the” was added and not indicated with italics in our English Bibles as it was supposed to, this is intentional to do away with The Law:

Romans 3:20

20 Therefore by the works of The (“the” was added) Law (any law whatsoever) there shall no flesh be justified in Yahuah’s sight: for by The Law (ho nomos) is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the Righteousness of Yahuah without The (“the” was added) Law (any law whatsoever) is manifested (in The Law).

Christianity teaches based on these verses, that there is no need to keep The Law of Yahuah; that Righteousness is somehow been manifested outside of The Law of Yahuah. Yet that cannot be the proper interpretation of that verse because in this same letter Sha’ul said:

Romans 2

13 for not the hearers of The Law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of The Law will be justified and declared Righteous.

Sha’ul only used the phrase “ho nomos” above, in Romans 3:20, when he said “for by The Law is the knowledge of sin”. The other two places he left out the article “the” and just said “nomos”.

Nomoß - Strong's Number: 3551

  1. anything established, anything received by usage, a custom, a law, a command
    1. of any law whatsoever


What Sha’ul actually said is:

Romans 3:20

20 Therefore by works of law (any law whatsoever, tradition, human commands) there shall no flesh be justified in Yahuah’s sight: for it is by THE LAW that we have knowledge of sin (Sha’ul is explaining the function of The Law). 21 But now the Righteousness of Yahuah (The Law of Yahuah Romans 7:12) that is separate from (human) law is revealed.


Romans 7:12

Therefore The Law is Holy, and the Commandments are Holy, and Just, and Righteous.


No Human Law Can Promise/Deliver Salvation

What Sha’ul was saying above is that no human law, human command, human tradition whatsoever (nomos) can deliver Eternal life. Eternal life is a function of The Law of Yahuah (ho nomos) which is Righteousness and Yahuah’s forgiving our sin against The Law. Eternal life is not a function of a human law we could obey to justify us. Justification is in the eyes of Yahuah and comes through obedience to The Law. The function of “The Law” is to define Righteousness and point out our sin and through obedience to it we are justified and found Righteous. That is a totally different message than what our faulty translations tell us. In more than half of the passage in the NT where Sha’ul speaks of “law” he does not use the article “the”. The phrase “works of law” is vastly different than the phrase “works of The Law”.  Let me put Romans 3, back into context, (remember context is a wonderful thing) of the rest of the book of Romans, and demonstrate the true meaning:

Romans 3

20 Therefore by works of any human law or tradition whatsoever (nomos) there shall no flesh be justified in Yahuah’s sight: (however it is) for by THE LAW of Yahuah (ho nomos) that we have the knowledge of sin.


Romans 5

20 Moreover The Law (ho nomos) entered (our hearts as Yahuah Promised) that the offense (of transgressing it) might abound (in our mind creating a need in us for a savior).


21 But now the Righteousness of Yahuah without (any human) law is revealed (in The Law of Yahuah, Romans 7:12). (Yahusha) being (the Messiah is) witnessed by The Law and the Prophets (Sha’ul is stressing the value of The Law as it gives Yahusha the authority to be The Messiah);  22 Even the Righteousness of Yahuah which is by Faith in (The Law and the Prophets which witness of) Yahusha the Messiah unto all and upon all them that believe (that Yahusha was the fulfillment of the witness of The Law and The Prophets): for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the Glory of Yahuah (requiring the blood of the Lamb to cover that sin defined in The Law of Yahuah only);  24 Being justified freely by Yahuah’s Grace (covering the death decrees in The Law with the blood of the Passover Lamb) through the redemption that is in the blood of Yahusha the Messiah: 25 Whom Yahuah hath set forth (in The Law not any human law) to be a an appeasing sacrifice through Faith in his blood, to declare Yahusha’s Righteousness in keeping The Law fully for the remission of our sins that are past, through the forbearance of Yahuah who accepts Yahusha’s obedience (to The Law) as if it were our own (by covering the Death Decrees we are brought into total compliance of The Law); 26 To declare, I say, at this time Yahusha’s Righteousness (in keeping The Law): that Yahuah might be just (in not issuing the final death decree against us), and the justifier of him which believes in (covenant with) Yahusha. 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded (because Yahuah has accepted Yahusha’s obedience to The Law in place of our own). By what (human) law (nomos)? of (what) works (in obedience to human commands that we have done can we claim justification)? None: but by The Law of Faith (in the Passover Lamb our sin is covered and we are justified by The Law). 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by Faith (that Yahusha fulfilled Yahuah’s Promise of a Passover Lamb) without the words of any (human) law whatsoever (nomos). 29 Is Yahuah the God of the Jews (The House of Judah) only? is he not also (the God) of the (Lost Sheep of the House of Israel scattered among the) Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30 Seeing it is one God (Sha’ul declares The Shema), which shall justify the circumcision by faith (in Yahusha as The Passover Lamb), and uncircumcision through Faith (in Yahusha as The Passover Lamb). 31 Do we then abolish The Law (ho nomos) through Faith? God forbid (the Passover Lamb Promise is found in The Law, if you abolish The Law you abolish the Promise of Salvation through the Passover Lamb with it). The Law of Yahuah is not abolished through Faith, The Law (ho nomos) of Yahuah is established through Faith (in Yahusha as we then walk as he walked in obedience to The Law keeping Passover in Faith to keep the memory of his sacrifice alive, 1 Corinthians 5).


Sha’ul declaring obedience to The Law is the definition of Righteousness

Sha’ul goes on to teach in that same letter, that as we first have Faith in the Passover Lamb Yahusha (whereby we are justified by Yahuah), then begin to walk as he walked in Obedience to The Law of Yahuah; our Obedience to The Law leads to Righteousness and Sanctification.

Romans 2:13

13For it is not those who hear The Law (ho nomos) who are Righteous in Yahuah's sight, but it is those who Obey The Law who will be declared Righteous.


Romans 6:16

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to Obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you Obey, whether of sin (not keeping The Law) leading to death, or of Obedience (to The Law) leading to Righteousness?

Romans 6:19
I am speaking in simple terms because of the frailty of your human nature. Just as you once offered the parts of your body as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater disobedience (to The Law), so now, in the same way, you must offer the parts of your body as slaves to Righteousness (which is keeping The Law) that leads to Sanctification.


The Law Vital to the Process of Sanctification

What Sha’ul is teaching in Romans is this (when taken in full context):  We first have Faith (in The Law) that Yahusha was the fulfillment of Passover. Expressing that Faith in Passover is the equivalent of pouring the blood of the lamb over the Altar of our hearts, and Yahuah accept that sacrifice of Yahusha and forgives our sin. That is a FREE GIFT. Then we begin the process of Sanctification, which is a process of becoming “holy” (set apart) by Yahuah through obedience to the Spiritual Intent of His Law.

That process is a function of obedience to The Law of Yahuah (not any human law, custom, or tradition); as we are filled with the Spirit of loving obedience, and The Law is written on our hearts:

Ezekiel 36: 26, 27

I will give you a new heart (intent for My Law and write My Law on it, Jeremiah 31) and put a new Spirit (of loving obedience with knowledge of intent over letter) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of The Law by the letter without love) and give you a heart of flesh (loving intent). And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow (the loving intent of) My Decrees and be careful to keep (the loving intent of) My Laws.

The process of Sanctification through obedience to The Law leads to Righteousness.

The issue of adding “the/ho” to “law/nomos” is just one example of how mistranslating our English Bibles leads to confusion and false doctrines. I highly recommend the reader immediately go out and purchase one of the recent translations that recognize these translation errors. I use The Book of Yahuah translation, so that I don’t have to constantly guard against these misleading uninspired modern English Bibles that are complicit in the Spirit of the Error.

Sha’ul’s attitude toward The Law is made crystal clear in the book of Romans. It is only by taking sound bite after sound bit out of context and twisting Scripture that it can be said of Sha’ul; that we don’t have to keep The Law.

Below are clear statements made by Sha’ul in Romans confirming The Law in The Yahushaic Covenant. Sha’ul says that the doers of The Law will be justified, and those who break it will be judged. The word that is translated below "without Law" here is, Strong’s word #460, which means "not amenable to the Jewish/Mosaic Law". (See Thayer’s and Strong's lexicon).

Romans 2:12

For as many as have sinned without law (nomos, manmade laws) will also perish without law (nomos; because only in The Law of Yahuah is Salvation promised), and as many as have sinned under The Law (ho nomos) will be judged by The (death decrees in the) Law (because they did not accept Yahusha’s Passover sacrifice and keep Passover) 13 for not the hearers of The Law (ho nomos) are just in the sight of Yahuah, but the doers of The Law (ho nomos) will be justified;

Knowing Yahuah’s Intent is found in The Law

Sha’ul says that we know His will and approve the things that are excellent when instructed out of The Law.

Romans 2:17

Indeed you are called a Jew, and rest on The Law, and make your boast in Yahuah, 18 and know [His] will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of The Law, 19 and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the (true) form of Knowledge and truth (which is found) in The Law.

Break The Law Dishonors Yahuah!

Sha’ul says that when we break The Law, we dishonor Yahuah and blaspheme His name.

Romans 2:21

You, therefore, who teach another (The Law), do you not teach (that same Law of Yahuah to) yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal? 22 You who say, "Do not commit adultery," do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23 You who make your boast in The Law, do you dishonor Yahuah through breaking The Law? 24 For "the name of Yahuah is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you," as it is written (in His Torah).

Sin is Transgressing The Law

Sha’ul twice states that we learn what sin is from The Law. This backs up the statement in 1 John 3:4 that Sin is transgression of The Law. Again we see the effects of the “nomos vs ho nomos” lead to twisting of Sha’ul’s words:

Romans 3:20

Therefore by the deeds of (human) law (nomos), no flesh will be justified in His sight, for it is by The Law of Yahuah that the knowledge of sin (is defined).


Romans 7:7

What shall we say then? [Is] The Law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through (obedience to) The Law of Yahuah. For I would not have known covetousness unless The Law had said, "You shall not covet."

Sha’ul taught “Grace AND Law”, not “Grave OR Law”

Sha’ul believed that we do not make The Law void through Faith, but rather we establish (Strong’s #2476: To cause or make to stand) The Law.

Romans 3:31

Do we then make void The Law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we cause and make stand, we establish The Law (because Faith is defined as belief in the Promises made by Yahuah, which are found in The Torah).

Here is another key Scripture, like the one above, proving that Sha’ul did not believe that once we are under Grace, that we can continue to sin (break The Law):

Romans 6:15

What then? Shall we sin (break The Law) because we are not under (the death decrees of the) Law, but under Grace (because the decrees have been covered by the blood of the Lamb)? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin (breaking The Law leading) to death, or of obedience (to the letter of The Law leading) to Righteousness (obedience to the Loving Intent of The Law)?

Here Sha’ul is equating "The Law" with "the Commandment" and stating his opinion of them:

Romans 7:12

Therefore The Law [is] Holy, and the Commandment Holy and Just and Righteous.

Our Flesh NOT The Law is Enmity Toward Yahuah

Here is an unpopular statement of Sha’ul's. Many like to believe that The Law is of the flesh and is enmity toward Yahuah. Sha’ul again makes it clear that The Law is not the enmity… our sinful flesh is what is hostile to Yahuah.

Romans 7:14

For we know that The Law is Spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.

Sha’ul delights in The Law of Yahuah

Romans 7:22

For I delight in The Law of Yahuah according to the inward man.

The Apostle Sha’ul was a devout follower of the Torah. Speaking of the Torah and Prophets (there was no New Testament when Sha’ul wrote this):

2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture [is] given by inspiration of Yahuah, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in Righteousness,17 that the man of Yahuah may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.


Romans 8:6-7

For to be carnally (literal) minded is death, but to be Spiritually minded (The Law is Spiritual Romans, 7:14) is life and peace. Because the carnal (literal) mind (not The Law) is enmity against Yahuah; for it is not subject to The Law of Yahuah, nor indeed can be.

It should be obvious by now in this book that the Apostle Sha’ul taught keeping The Law is the path to justification and Righteousness.

If we had qualified, truly anointed teachers today, I shouldn’t have to go in, retranslate, and show the true meaning of the entire New Testament writings of Sha’ul to demonstrate that the Greek appropriate Pauline ‘Christian’ Doctrine is a totally false doctrine. However, I am going to do just that in this book series, because someone must correct the twisting of Sha’ul’s writing.

The Apostle Sha’ul did not start a new religion. When each of the sound bite implied doctrines of Christianity are brought into context; Sha’ul can be brought into agreement with every other writer in the New Testament. Sha’ul is also in agreement with Yahuah and Yahusha concerning the role of The Law in our lives and within The Yahushaic Covenant. It is only through twisting Sha’ul’s writings, sound biting them, taking them out of context of his other writings, and “implying” what is false; can The Pauline Doctrine be justified!

The purpose of this section was to quickly illustrate that Sha’ul’s writings have been altered, twisted, words added and then mis-taught by Christianity. The Christian Pauline ‘Doctrine’ is false, and ‘NOT’ what the Apostle Sha’ul taught or believed. Again, he was a Nazarene!

The purpose of this chapter is to try and help define The Law as it has been transposed to Spiritual Intent. Let’s get back to the main idea of this chapter so that this book stays on point, and does not become so large and complex that the reader (and the writer) loses focus.

These are keys to understanding Sha’ul’s writings, and each of us should do our own independent study with these keys in mind.

·         Sha’ul confronted Rabbinical Judaism just like Yahusha.

·         Both Sha’ul and Yahusha confronted Rabbinical Law called Takkanots as the Jews were following the 6,200 page Talmud, full of human commands and traditions of men.

·         Sha’ul used, “ho nomos” for The Law and “nomos” for the “law of the land”, which was the Talmud.

·         Both Yahusha and Sha’ul were Notsris or Nazarenes. Which, by definition, mean they protected the Torah of Yahuah and defended it against the Babylonian Talmud.

·         The fact is that Sha’ul, like Yahusha, taught the transposition of The Law and spoke in the Mystery Language that few in his day, and even fewer still today, understand.


Did Sha’ul say we don’t have to keep the Festivals of Yahuah?

I would like to point out, in Romans, another place where the translators added words in order to justify The Spirit of Error (the abolishment of The Law).

Below is a portion of Scripture used by the Christian Church to teach that we are not bound to, nor do we need to, keep The Sabbath and Dietary Laws:

Romans 14

5 One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the day, observes it to Yahuah; and he who does not observe the day, to Yahuah he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Yahuah, for he gives Yahuah thanks; and he who does not eat, to Yahuah he does not eat, and gives Yahuah thanks.

This verse is taught in Christian circles this way:

Romans 14

5 One person esteems one day (the 7th Day) above another; another esteems every day (of the week) alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the (Sabbath) day, observes it to Yahuah; and he who does not observe the (Sabbath) day, to Yahuah he does not observe it. He who eats (Kosher), eats to Yahuah, for he gives Yahuah thanks; and he who does not eat (Kosher), to Yahuah he does not eat, and gives Yahuah thanks.

We are taught that Sha’ul is saying that the Sabbath and Dietary Laws are not binding. If we choose to be bound by them, that is OK, and if we choose to transgress them, that too, is OK. Sha’ul does not have the authority to legislate such a ridiculous “law”, and he did no such thing.

The problem is that in verse 6, above, the phrase “and he who does not observe the day, to Yahuah he does not observe it. was not in the original Greek Codex Vadicanus. But we are conveniently never told this important fact, because the false religion teaches us to sin against Yahuah. Some translations are true to the text and leave those added words out:

Romans 14:5-6 English Standard Version (ESV)

5 One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.

Now we are coming closer to what Sha’ul actually said. In the above texts, Sha’ul is talking about feast days, not The Sabbath. Below is, in context, what Sha’ul is saying; leaving out the unscriptural words added by uninspired translators.

Sha’ul is specifically addressing the age old debate concerning The Day of Atonement being more Holy than the rest of the Feast days. Some teach that it is commanded that we fast on Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement). It is a “tradition” not to eat, not a Commandment that we “fast” on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). The Commandment is that we are to afflict our souls on that day which does not mean “fast from food”, that is by tradition interpreted as fasting. So some people fast and some do not depending on how you interpret “afflict your soul”. Below is what Sha’ul is talking about in context:

Romans 14:5-6

5 One person esteems one (Feast) day as better than another (some believe Yom Kippur is THE most Holy of all Holy Days), while another esteems all (Feast) days alike (as they are rehearsals of The Plan of Salvation). Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind (and not doubt his position because doubt is sin). 6 The one who observes the day (of Atonement as the MOST Holy Day), observes it in honor of Yahuah. The one who eats (on the Day of Atonement), eats in honor of Yahuah, since he gives thanks to Yahuah (in keeping the Day of Atonement), while the one who abstains (fasts on The Day of Atonement), abstains in honor of Yahuah and gives thanks to Yahuah (on the Day of Atonement).

Sha’ul is not taking sides on the issue either way, he is just saying whatever your position is, be firm in it and don’t waver back and forth. Everyone who keeps the Festivals of Yahuah is Righteous, as they keep them in honor of Yahuah. Most of the “do’s and don’ts” associated with the Festivals are not Commanded in the Torah, they are traditions of men found in The Talmud. Again, Sha’ul is confronting the Rabbinical System of Takkanots.

Colossians is another place where Christianity has twisted the words of Sha’ul.

Colossians 2 - Freedom From Human Rules

16 Therefore do not let anyone (the pagans in Colossae all around you) judge you by what you eat or drink (as you keep the Dietary Laws for good health), or with regard to (your keeping) the Festivals of Yahuah, a New Month celebration (as you keep Yahuah’s calendar not the pagan lunar calendar) or a Sabbath day (as you rest on The Sabbath and not on Dias Solis the pagan day of worship). 17 (You do) These (things as they) are a shadow (cast by Spiritual Truth) of the (good) things that were to come (they are Moedim or Rehearsals); the reality (in Spirit), however, is found in The Yahushaic Covenant (they teach us through physical to Spiritual rehearsals of the work of Salvation and point us to Yahusha who fulfills them).

This is a very important Scripture here. Christianity teaches that Sha’ul is saying “let no one (Jew) judge you for violating The Law and not keeping The Sabbaths and Holy Days of Yahuah” and that is the exact opposite of what Sha’ul is teaching here. According to The Christian Church, Jews were spying on Sha’ul and following him all over Asia Minor, trying to “convert” pagans to Judaism. This is absurd, totally contrary to fact and Biblical witness.

We see Sha’ul teaching the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel scattered among the pagans to keep the Feasts on multiple occasions, and specifically teaching them to keep Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread below:

1 Corinthians 5

Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? 7 Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Yahusha, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed (on Passover not Good Friday). 8 Therefore let us keep the Festival of Unleavened Bread, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Sha’ul taught them to keep the Feast in light of Yahusha and in the transposed Spiritual Intent. So it was Sha’ul who was teaching the Colossians and all those assemblies he established to keep the Feasts. It was the pagans in those pagan communities condemning them for it. Jews were nowhere to be found among those pagan communities, as they do not now and never have proselytized ANYONE especially what they considered “Gentiles”.

The situation in these pagan provinces where Sha’ul established fellowships, is exactly the same state you and I are in today. We are condemned by the same exact establishment, Babylon and its rituals (Christmas, Sunday, Good Friday, Easter, etc.) when we become obedient to Yahuah and His rituals.

They (Christianity) are quick to shout “LEGALISM!” and condemn us for our obedience to Yahuah, and accuse us of trying to “work our way to heaven”. It is funny to me, because all these Christians have done is traded in Yahuah’s Law and rituals for Babylon’s. They are strict legalist toward their keeping of the pagan rituals of Christmas, Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter. They, all of Christianity, are hypocrites in this way. They say “thou shalt not judge” and yet they are the most self-righteous judgmental group on Earth. It is sad the Earth lies in this deception. It is even sadder still that few stand up to it. If we are not to be “legalistic”, then why do they push the ritualistic keeping of Christmas instead of Succoth, and Easter instead of Passover, and Sunday instead of The Sabbath Day? They are just as legalistic, just for the WRONG Laws.

The Jews condemned Sha’ul for reaching out and teaching the pagans to keep Torah, because they did not understand The House of Israel was living among the Gentiles. Even the other disciples had a hard time accepting Sha’ul as one of them, because Sha’ul went out to the pagans and taught the Torah in light of The Messiah Yahusha. The Jews could care less about the pagans and certainly would never go following behind Sha’ul in his journeys.

The Jews, in their Talmud, believe they could not even come into contact, nor could they eat with Gentiles. So how could they be the ones “judging them” from such a distance. The entire thing is… well ridiculous. It was actually the pagan Greeks (Christians) who were rebelling against The Law of Yahuah, who hated The Jews and twisted the Scriptures; then blamed the entire thing on the Jews!

The Jews were very jealous of their God and did not, and still do not, try and evangelize anyone outside of the bloodline of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob. There simply were no “Judaisers” running around behind Sha’ul in these pagan provinces of Rome. Moreover, Sha’ul was speaking to previous uncircumcised pagans here, who never knew about nor kept The Law (Kosher eating, New Moon celebrations, Feasts of Yahuah, and Sabbaths). The reason Sha’ul mentions these things in his letter to these past pagans is because Sha’ul has been there and taught them to KEEP these things. The pagan community around them in Colossae (a pagan province of Rome) were judging them for eating Kosher (by what they ate and drank), and with the regards to their keeping Yahuah’s Feasts, Sabbaths, and New Month (Season) celebrations not the Jews.

You see, these new converts stopped keeping Babylon’s rituals of Christmas, Sunday, Good Friday, Easter, eating pork, etc. as every one of those holidays was passed down with sun worship in Babylon to Rome. Not keeping the pagan rituals, they came under fire from their neighbors, not the Jews. You too will come under intense judgment by the pagan establishment (Christianity which is based on Babylonian rituals/gods) when you cease keeping Babylon’s rituals and come into obedience to Yahuah’s Feasts/Torah/Sabbaths. Colossians will have a whole new meaning in your life, as we too have been scattered among the pagan nations and are being judged by our Christian friends, family, and neighbors for keeping The Law of Yahuah.

Grace and The Law

The concept called Grace as unmerited favor of Yahuah is clearly defined in Scripture. Yahuah Promised a Passover Lamb whose blood would cover the death decrees in The Law; which is a free gift (unmerited favor) toward those who have Faith that Yahusha was the fulfillment of that Promise.

Since Grace is the forgiveness of sin, in this way, it cannot exist outside of The Law of Yahuah. Where there is no Law there is no sin. Where there is no sin the concept of Grace does not exist. For Grace to exist:

1.       we must be “under The Law” that exposes our sin

2.       we must be Faithful to repent of that sin

3.       then the blood of Yahusha covers the death decrees found within The Law

4.       and finally we are freed from our fear of death.

We are not freed form keeping The Law of Yahuah; we are freed from the penalty of death. We no longer live in fear of death, but in newness of life, and have a new Spirit that teaches us how to obey His Law in love.

This new Spirit inside us, replaced the “heart of stone” (legalistic observance to the letter of The Law) that was enmity toward The Law because we feared the death decrees; with a soft loving heart “of flesh”. We are given the Spirit of Holiness (or Spirit that makes us Holy), which teaches us to obey The Law of Yahuah out of love as we cry out “Abba Father”. The Apostle Sha’ul dealt with the concept of Grace and the role of The Law to identify sin in the Book of Romans. The uninspired modern English Hellenized Greek appropriate translations, have mistranslated and twisted the words in all books in the Bible. They did so to abolish The Law so that they would not have to keep it. They did so in their “god” Jesus H. Christ who is called The Lawless One.

Next, I am going to provide the proper in context translation of chapters 5-8, in the Book of Romans; to demonstrate exactly what Sha’ul actually said in context of Grace and The Law. I already covered the first part of Romans. Let me begin with Romans Chapter 5, and correct all the mistranslations, remove the added words, and put it is context of all Sha’ul’s writing.

Romans Chapter 5 in Context

Romans 5 - Results of Justification

5 Therefore, having been justified by Faith (in and keeping Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice), we have peace with Yahuah through our King Yahusha the Messiah, 2 through whom (in covenant with) also we have obtained our introduction by Faith into this grace in which we stand (we have been brought into compliance to The Law by Yahusha’s obedience and Yahuah covering the death decrees against us); and we exult in hope (our resurrection) of the Glory of Yahuah (that we are His Children). 3 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of Yahuah (is defined as keeping The Law, 1 John 5:3)


1 John 5:3

In fact, this is love for Yahuah: to keep His Commands. And his Commands are not burdensome


has been poured out within our hearts (The Law written on our hearts, Hebrews 10:6) through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (through Mikveh, a loving soft heart toward His Law, Ezekiel 36:27).


Ezekiel 36:27

22 “Therefore say to the House of Israel, ‘Thus says Yahuah your God, “It is not for your sake, O House of Israel, that I am about to act, but for My Holy Name Yahuah, which you have profaned among the nations where you went. 23 I will vindicate the Holiness of My Great Name Yahuah which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am Yahuah,” declares the Yahuah your Elohim, “when I prove Myself Holy among you in their sight. 24 For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land. 25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you (Mikveh), and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols (with Living Water). 26 Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your body and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My Commandments, and you will be careful to observe My Law.


6 For while we were still helpless (lost among the nations), at the right time Yahusha died for the ungodly (those who do not keep The Law). 7 For one will hardly die for a Righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8 But Yahuah demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners (Law breakers, 1 John 3:4),


1 John 3:4 – New Living Translation

Everyone who sins is breaking God's Law, for all sin is contrary to The Law of God.


Yahusha died for us (to bring us into full compliance to The Law). 9 Much more then, having now been justified (in the eyes of The Law) by His blood (covering the death decrees against us for sin), we shall be saved from the wrath of Yahuah (death by decree) through (by being in covenant with) Yahusha. 10 For if while we were enemies (with Yahuah and hated The Law of Yahuah, Romans 8:7)


Romans 8:7

The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to Yahuah; it does not submit to The Law of Yahuah, nor can it do so.


we were reconciled to Yahuah through the death of His Son Yahusha, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by Yahusha’s life (Example. We must walk as he walked, as he was perfected in obedience to The Law, Romans 3:25, and by Grace through Faith his obedient example, we too our found rRghteous through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. Because Yahusha obeyed the Will of Yahuah and fulfilled his end of the covenant made in Zechariah Chapter 3, Yahuah then forgives our sin).


Romans 3

25 Whom Yahuah hath set forth (Yahusha) to be an appeasing sacrifice through faith in his blood (by keeping Passover), to declare Yahusha’s Righteousness in keeping The Law fully for the remission of our sins that are past, through the forbearance of Yahuah who accepts Yahusha’s obedience (to The Law) as if it were our own (IF we too, walk in obedience out of a loving heart)


11 And not only this, but we also exult in Yahuah through our King Messiah Yahusha, through whom (in covenant with) we have now received the reconciliation (back to Yahuah as His Adopted Children).

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin (sin is disobedience to The Law, 1 John 3:4) entered the world (Adam disobeyed YAHUAH’s Commands bringing sin into the world), and death through sin (The Law of Sin and You Die), and thus death spread to all men (as Death is the penalty of sin which is breaking The Law. Original Sin, another false doctrine, death did not spread to all men, genetic DEATH did), because all man sinned (and therefore die for their own sin, not because they are born with Original Sin, The Law clearly states that no man is to be punished for another’s sin including Adam’s)

13 To be sure, sin (breaking The Law) was in the world before the (written) Law was given (to Moses), but sin (breaking The Law) is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no Law. (so the fact that sin was in the world before the written Law is proof The Holy Law existed all the way back to Adam)

NOTE: Keep all of Sha’ul’s writings in context; Sha’ul is proving that because there was transgression at the time of Adam therefore The Law existed. Because if The Law did not exist, neither would transgressions and death could not reign:

Romans 4:15

15 Because The Law worketh wrath (death for disobedience): for where no Law is, there is no transgression.


(so Sha’ul is saying there must have been The Law at the time of Adam because there was transgression…) 14 Nevertheless (now Sha’ul says death is the proof of The Law), death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, (and DEATH is the penalty of “sin” or breaking The Law. So transgression and death is PROOF The Law existed from Adam to Moses) even over those who did not sin by breaking a Command, as did Adam (The Law was a lot more complex than anyone knew because people were dying for all types of sin not just “eating the apple”) 15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one man many died, much more did the Grace of Yahuah and the gift by the Grace of the one man, Yahusha the Messiah, abound to the many (it took a human High Priest to overturn Adam’s sin, not a god). 16 The gift is not like that which came through the one man who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. 17 For if by the transgression of the one man, death reigned (death is passed on not Original Sin) through the one man, much more those who receive the abundance of Grace and of the gift of Righteousness will reign in life through the one man, Yahusha the Messiah. (Sha’ul is stressing that it took a fully human man to live it obedience to The Law and die innocent to break The Law of Sin and Death. Yahusha HAD TO BE human not god to accomplish and reverse the curse of Adam) 18 So then as through one man’s transgression (of The Law) there resulted condemnation to all men (to death genetically), even so through one man’s act of (living a) Righteousness (life) there resulted justification of (Eternal) life to all men (who enter into The Yahushaic Covenant and keep The Law). 19 For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one man the many will be made Righteous. 20 The (written) Law came in so that the (Knowledge of) transgression would increase; but where (Knowledge of) sin increased, Grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death (in our genetic code), even so Grace (forgiveness of the death decrees) would reign through Righteousness (our obedience to The Law) to (deliver) Eternal life through (in covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah. (it took one human being to live in obedience to The Law of Yahuah and die because of the curse of Adam to break that curse)


Romans 6Believers Are Dead to living in disobedience to The Law, Alive to living in obedience to The Law of Yahuah
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin (disobedient to The Law) so that Grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin (disobedience to The Law) still live in it (disobedience to The Law 1 John 2)?


1 John 2

By this we know that we have come to know Yahuah, if we keep His Commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Yahuah,” and does not keep His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His Word (obeys The Law of Yahuah), in him the love of Yahuah has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in (covenant with) Yahuah: the one who says he abides in (enters into covenant with) Him (Yahusha) ought himself to walk in the same manner as he walked (in Obedience to The Law of Yahuah).


Or do you not know that all of us who have been washed clean with Living Water (Mikveh’d) into (covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah have been Mikveh’d into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him through Mikveh into death, so that as Yahusha was raised from the dead through the Glory of the Father (Yahuah is the Savior whose raised Yahusha from the grave), so we too might walk in newness of life (in Obedience to the Intent of The Law, by renewing our minds daily).


Romans 12

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (through His Law). Then you will be able to test and approve what Yahuah’s will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.


Ephesians 4

…22 You were taught to put off your former way of life, your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be renewed in the Spirit of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like Yahuah in true Righteousness and Holiness.…


 For if we have become united with Yahusha in the likeness of his death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection, knowing this, that our old self (that was hostile toward The Law of Yahuah) was crucified with Yahusha, in order that our body of sin (disobedience to The Law) might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin (breaking The Law); for he who has died (to a life of breaking The Law of Yahuah) is freed from sin (by the renewing of our minds in Obedience to The Law of Yahuah in covenant with Yahusha).

Now if we have died with Yahusha (entered into The Yahushaic Covenant), we believe that we shall also live (in Obedience to the intent of The Law) with him, knowing that Yahusha, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Yahusha (because he broke the power of death in the body by living in Obedience to The Law of Yahuah). 10 For the death that Yahusha died, he died to (cover) sin once for all (time, Yahusha is the Eternal High Priest, Hebrews 6:20); but the life that Yahusha lives, he lives to Yahuah. 11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin (breaking The Law), but alive to Yahuah in (following the example of) Yahusha the Messiah (who kept the Intent of The Law).

12 Therefore do not let sin (disobedience to The Law) reign (habitually) in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness (disobedience to The Law); but present yourselves to Yahuah as those alive from the dead (works, Hebrews 6:1), and your members as instruments of Righteousness to Yahuah (through good works of The Law, Faith without works is dead, James 2:14-26).


James 2:14-26

18 But someone will say, “You have Faith, and I have works.” Show me your Faith without your works, and I will show you my Faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is One God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that Faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that Faith was working together with his works, and by works Faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed Yahuah, and it was accounted to him for Righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of Yahuah. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by Faith only.


14 For sin shall not be master over you (denying you Eternal life), for you are not under (the death decrees in The) Law but under Grace (the Blood of the Passover Lamb has covered the death decrees).


15 What then? Shall we sin (break The Law) because we are not under (the death decrees in The) Law but under grace? May it never be! 16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience (to The Law), you are slaves of the one whom you obey (Yahuah), either of sin (outside of The Yahushaic Covenant) resulting in death (by decree), or of obedience (to the Intent of The Law within The Yahushaic Covenant) resulting in Righteousness (complete Obedience to The Law in Yahuah’s eyes through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering)? 17 But thanks be to Yahuah that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient (to the Intent of The Law of Yahuah in covenant with Yahusha) from the heart (where The Law has been written) to that form of (Yahusha’s) teaching (of obedience at the level of ‘Intent’ which trumps the letter) to which you were committed (when you were baptized into covenant with him), 18 and having been freed from (the penalty of) sin (the death decrees), you became slaves of Righteousness (committed to keeping The Law of Yahuah in love). 19 I am speaking in human (literal) terms (using physical examples to illustrate a Spiritual truth) because of the weakness of your flesh (which weakens The Law. Romans 8:3).


Romans 8:3

For what The Law was powerless to do (deliver Eternal life) because it was weakened by the flesh, Yahuah did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (a human being) to be a (human) sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh (by dying an innocent man and breaking the curse of Adam)


For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to Lawlessness, resulting in further Lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to Righteousness (Obedience to the Intent of The Law), resulting in Sanctification (we are sanctified i.e. set apart and made Holy by keeping The Law of Yahuah).


20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to Righteousness (didn’t have to worry about or try to obey His Law). 21 Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things (Lawlessness) is death (by decree because you are still judged by The Law weather you keep it or not). 22 But now having been freed from sin (breaking The Law) and enslaved to Yahuah (committed to keep His Law), you derive your benefit, resulting in Sanctification, and the outcome, Eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death (by decree), but the free gift of Yahuah (death decrees covered by the blood of the Passover Lamb) is Eternal life in (covenant with) Messiah Yahusha our King.


Romans 7 - Believers to be in The Yahushaic Covenant

7 Or do you not know, brethren (for I am speaking to those who know The Law), that The Law has jurisdiction over a person as long as he lives? 2 For the married woman is bound by Law to her husband while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from The Law concerning the husband. 3 So then, if while her husband is living she is joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from The Law, so that she is not an adulteress though she is joined to another man (Sha’ul is teaching The Law).


4 Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die (buried in baptism, Colossians 2:12 and Romans 6:4) to the (death decrees in the) Law through the body of Messiah (in covenant with Yahusha),


Colossians 2

12 having been buried with him in baptism (made to die by transgressing The Law), in which you were also raised up with him (to a new life of keeping The Law) through Faith in the working of Yahuah, who raised Yahusha from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your transgressions (against The Law) and the uncircumcision of your flesh, Yahuah made you alive (to The Law) together with Yahusha, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the ‘certificate of debt’ consisting of death decrees against us


so that you might be joined to another (as the Bride of the Messiah), to Yahusha (in marriage covenant) who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit (good works of The Law, James 2:18) for Yahuah. 5 For while we were in the flesh (which is hostile to The Law, Romans 8:7), the sinful passions, which were aroused by The Law (The Law points out our sin, Romans 7:7), were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death (Faith without works of The Law is dead fruit). 6 But now we have been released from the (death decrees in the) Law, having died to that by which we were bound (disobedience to The Law), so that we serve in newness of the Spirit (ual Intent of The Law) and not in oldness of the letter (of The Law which is active decrees outside of the Blood of the Lamb).


7 What shall we say then? Is The Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through The Law (that is why we keep The Law); for I would not have known about coveting if The Law had not said, “You shall not covet.” 8 But sin, taking opportunity through the Commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind (because flesh is hostile to The Law); for apart from The Law sin is dead (where there is no Law there is no sin). 9 I was once alive (in the flesh to sin) apart from The Law (which leads to death both physically and Spiritually); but when the Commandment came (and I began keeping The Law), sin (within me) became (Spiritually) alive (to me, I was able to recognize sin) and I (my carnal man) died (Spiritually); 10 and this Commandment, which was to result in life (but was weakened because of my flesh), proved to result in death for me (Spiritually separated me from Yahuah); 11 for sin, taking an opportunity through the Commandment (to separate me from Yahuah because my flesh is weak), deceived me (to have enmity toward and rebel against The Law) and through it (my rebellion) killed me (by decree, the ‘Certificate of Debt’ had to be paid, Colossians 2). 12 So then (I became aware of my need for a sin offering and I believed in Yahusha the Passover Lamb), The Law (therefore) is Holy (leading me to the Messiah in Faith), and the Commandment is Holy and Righteous and good (bringing me into The Yahushaic Covenant, 2 Timothy 3:16).


2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture (Sha’ul is referring to the Torah/Prophets, the NT did not exist) is inspired by Yahuah and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in Righteousness;


13 Therefore did that which is good (The Law) become a cause of death for me? May it never be! Rather it was sin (that weakened The Law because of my disobedience), in order that it might be shown to be sin by effecting my (carnal minded) death through that which is good (renewing my mind daily with His Torah, Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:23), so that through the (renewing my mind in keeping His) Commandment, sin would become utterly sinful (to me and I would be convicted to turn from it).

The Conflict of Two Natures – the battle between sinful flesh and the mind set on the Spiritual Law of Yahuah

14 For we know that The Law is Spiritual (defines Righteous Intent), but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin. 15 For what I am doing (breaking The Law of Yahuah), I do not understand (why I do it); for I am not practicing what I would like to do (keeping The Law), but I am doing the very thing I hate (breaking The Law). 16 But if I do the very thing I do not want to do (break The Law), I agree with The Law (that I deserve to die by the decrees), confessing that The Law is good (admitting I am a sinner and have a need for a sin offering). 17 So now, no longer am I the one doing it (my “Intent” is Righteous, I now hate that sin), but sin which dwells in me (as my flesh is a slave to its carnal desires). 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me (my Intent is Righteous, in my Spirit I have a heart for The Law), but the doing of the good is not (I have trouble keeping the letter of The Law completely). 19 For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me (Sha’ul is teaching the ‘Intent vs. the Letter’, Yahuah judges the ‘Intent’ of our hearts, not the act by the letter)


21 I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the One who wants to do good. 22 For I joyfully concur with The Law of Yahuah in the inner man (my ‘Intent’ is to keep The Law, and The Law is written on my heart), 23 but I see a different (carnal) law in the members of my body, waging war against The Law of my mind (Intent) and making me a prisoner of The Law of sin (and you die by decree) which is in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? 25 Thanks be to Yahuah through (in covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah our King! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind, am serving The Law of Yahuah (INTENT, this is what Yahuah judges, NOT the letter), but on the other, with my flesh The Law of sin (against the letter of His Law, but in covenant with Yahusha, his life of total Obedience to The Law is our own and we are made Righteous through the blood of the Passover Lamb, Romans 3:25).

Sha’ul continues to address this battle between renewing our minds (with the ‘Intent’ to obey The Law) and our flesh enslaved to sin.



Romans 8 in Context - Deliverance from bondage to sin


Romans 8

1 Now there is no condemnation for those in The Yahushaic Covenant. 2 For The Law of the Spirit of (Holiness that leads to Eternal) Life (which is The Law with the death decrees covered by the blood of the Passover Lamb) in (covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah has made me free from The Law of Sin and Death (which is the Letter of The Law with active death decrees outside of The Yahushaic Covenant). 3 For what (the letter of) The Law could not do (bring Eternal Life as Promised) because The Law was made weak by our flesh (because we broke the letter of The Law and the decrees in The Law condemned us to death for disobedience), Yahuah did (provided Eternal Life as a free gift to those who try to keep the INTENT of The Law in covenant with Yahusha and fail i.e. Grace) by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (as a man), on account of sin (to defeat it by living obedient to The Law and dying innocent thereby breaking the curse of Adam): Yahusha condemned sin in the flesh (making The Law whole by fulfilling the Promise in The Law of Eternal Life for Obedience to the ‘Intent’… Matthew 5:17), 4 that the Righteous requirement of The Law might be fulfilled in us (through Mikveh, Ezekiel 36:25) who do not walk according to the flesh (disobedient to The Law) but according to the Spirit (ual Intent and loving Obedience to The Law).


Ezekiel 36: 25, 27 – Walking according to the New Spirit

25 I will sprinkle clean living water on you (Mikveh), and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols (through Mikveh). 26 I will give you a new heart (for My Law and write My Law on it) and put a New Spirit (of loving obedience) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of The Law out of fear of death) and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My Decrees and be careful to keep My Laws.


5 For those who live according to the flesh (which is hostile to The Law of Yahuah) set their minds on the things of the flesh (and abolish The Law of Yahuah), but those who live according to the Spirit (of loving obedience to The Law), the things of the Spirit (The Law is Spiritual). 6 For to be carnally minded is death (you’ll be judged by the decrees in The Law), but to be Spiritually minded is life and peace (as in loving Obedience to The Law the decrees against you are covered by the blood of the Lamb). 7 Because the carnal mind is hatred against Yahuah; for it is not subject to The Law of Yahuah, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please Yahuah (because they hate The Law of Yahuah and abolished it in their hearts).


Romans 2:13
For it is not those who hear The Law who are Righteous in Yahuah's sight, but it is those who obey The Law who will be declared Righteous.


9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit (you obey the Intent of The Law and it is not a burden, you obey out of love … 1 John 5:3),


1 John 5:3

In fact, this is love for Yahuah: to keep His Commands. And His Commands are not burdensome (we keep them out of love not obligation or fear of death)

if indeed the Spirit of Yahuah dwells in you (teaching you the Spiritual Law by Intent). But if anyone does not have the Spirit of the Messiah (who taught that ‘intent’ trumps letter), he does not belong to Yahuah. 10 If Messiah is in you (you are in The Yahushaic Covenant), though the (physical) body is dead (genetically) because of sin (the curse of Adam), yet the Spiritual body is alive because of Righteousness (keeping the Intent of The Law).


1 Corinthians 15

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable physical body, it is raised an imperishable Spiritual body; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in Glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in Power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a Spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a Spiritual body. 45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam (the man Yahusha) became a life-giving Spirit. 46 However, the Spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the Spiritual. 47 The first man is from the Earth, Earthly; the second man is from heaven. 48 As is the Earthly, so also are those who are Earthly; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 Just as we have borne the image of the Earthly, we will also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit The Kingdom of Yahuah; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.


11 But if the Spirit of Yahuah who raised Yahusha from the dead dwells in you (The Spirit of Holiness, Romans 1:4),


Romans 1:4

and who through the Spirit of Holiness was appointed the Son of God in Power by his resurrection from the dead: Yahusha the Messiah our King.


Yahuah who raised Yahusha the Messiah from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies (to teach you to keep His Law, Ezekiel 36:27) through His Spirit who (fully) dwells in you (after you are Mikveh’d clean, then The Spirit (Fire) is poured out in you in bodily form, Ephesians 3:19).


12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh (to break The Law), to live according to the flesh (which is hostile to Yahuah)— 13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die (by the death decrees in The Law); but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body (stop breaking The Law), you will live. 14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of Yahuah (which teaches us to keep the Intent of The Law, Ezekiel 36:27), these are sons of Yahuah. 15 For you have not received a Spirit of slavery (to the Letter of The Law) leading to fear (of death) again, but you have received a Spirit of adoption (we are in an adoption covenant with Yahuah, as children in Law being wed to Yahusha, His son) as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our Spirit that we are children of Yahuah (through Marriage and Resurrection), 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of Yahuah and fellow heirs with Yahusha (our elder brother), if indeed we suffer with Yahusha so that we may also be Glorified with him (through resurrection).


18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the Glory that is to be revealed to us (as Children of Yahuah). 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the Sons of Yahuah. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility (when Adam fell), not willingly, but because of Yahuah Who subjected it in Hope (of a coming Messiah); 21 because the creation itself also (like the Sons of Yahuah during the Spring Feastswill be delivered (in the coming Fall Feasts) from the bondage of corruption into the Glorious Liberty of the Children of Yahuah (on the DAY OF ATONEMENT). 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors (for 6,000 years per the Sabbath Covenant) with birth pangs together until now (the 7th Millennium, the Sabbath). 23 Not only that, but we also who have the Firstfruits (Spring Feasts) of the Spirit (represented by the the Feast of Weeks, the guarantee), even we ourselves groan within ourselves (along with creation because we have not yet been resurrected and delivered), eagerly waiting for the adoption (as Elohim, into the Family of YHWH), the redemption of our body (deliverance on the Feast of Trumpets through resurrection). 24 For we were saved (during the Spring Feasts by the Passover Lamb) in this Hope (that He will return again and fulfill the Fall Feasts, resurrected our bodies and liberate creation), but Hope that is seen is not Hope; for why does one still Hope for what he sees (we have not yet witnessed the fulfillment of the Fall Feasts, so Hope for our deliverance endures)? 25 But if we Hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it (our deliverance during the Fall Feasts) with perseverance (those who persevere until the end, shall be delivered).

I’ll stop here. That is how you study Scripture. Line upon line, precept upon precept, letting Scripture define Scripture. We are never to build implied doctrines based on sound bites! When you put Sha’ul’s writing in context of each other, we find that the Apostle Sha’ul taught The Law in context of The Yahushaic Covenant in a way few men were qualified to do then, or today.

Sha’ul never taught against The Law. Sha’ul was a Torah Master, and he was a NAZARENE!
