Secrets of the Scriptures Revealed
New Moon Disclaimer: anything regarding new moons should be read as NEW MONTHS because that is what they are. "New moons" implies that we go by the lunar calendar, which I did for 10 years; however, after the Creator intervened I now understand the 364 day solar calendar to be of Yah as prescribed in the book of Enoch. Using the Lunar Calendar is forbidden in the book of Jubiless, it is implied in Enoch, and the Essene scrolls found in the Qumran caves at the dead sea confirm the use of the solar calendar not a lunar calendar. The going out and coming in of the moon is 10 days off per solar year, Jubilees prophesied that they would go astray in the last days using the moon and throwing off the order of the Appointed Times of Yah. Jubilees 6:36-38 “For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon- now it disturbeth the seasons and cometh in from year to year ten days too soon. For this reason the years will come upon them when they will disturb the order, and make an abominable day the day of testimony, and an unclean day a feast day, and they will confound all the days, the holy with the unclean, and the unclean day with the holy; for they will go wrong as to the months and sabbaths and feasts and jubilees. For this reason I command and testify to thee that thou mayest testify to them; for after thy death thy children will disturb them, so that they will not make the year 364 days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new months and seasons and sabbaths and festivals…”
In Hebrew the word for moon is 3394 yareach. In Hebrew the word for month is 2320 chodesh. No where in Scripture does it ever say "New Moon", it only says "New Month"! So the witness that scripture gives is that we have new months, there is no such thing as a new moon in Scripture. Colossians 2:16 uses new moon, but if you research it you will see it’s 3561 a combination of 3501(new) and 3376(month). I Samuel 20:5,18,24; II Kings 4:23; Psalm 81:3; Isaiah 66:23; Ezekiel 46:1,6; Amos 8:5. All these verses use new moon; however if you look up the word it’s not yareach (moon); it’s actually chodesh (month).
Romans 3:31 "Do we make void the Law through Faith?
God forbid: yea we establish the Law!"
This page is designed specifically for Christians! The teachings presented here are to persuade you of a truth that has been hidden from you! The truth is Yahuahs Law Is Not Done Away With! The devil has has decieved people with this doctrine of lawlessness far too long! The devil is the lawless one! It's time for us to get back to our Hebrew Roots where we will discover the ways of Yahuah that He intends for us to walk in. I hope you will take the time to examine these teachings, and see if they be true or not! Embarking on this journey will truly change your life and make you a new creation in Yahusha as the Word speaks of. My challenge to you is to not only hear, but to do what the Word of Yah says to do - lest you decieve yourself! Peter warns us that many will take Pauls writtings and misinterpret them for lawlessness! The Spirit of Yah (Ruach HaKodesh) will never lead you contrary to the Law of Yah. If you are being led into lawlessness, then you have what I call led poisoning! You need to get away from that spirit for it is not of Yah! The devil disguises himself as an angel of light, his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end will be according to their deeds! By your fruit you will be judged! You either produce the good fruit of obedience to Yah's instructions, or the bad fruit of lawlessness! If your New Testament interpretation is contrary to the Old Testament, or to keeping the law; then your interpretation is wrong! Yahusha never changed or altered the law of Yahuah! If Yahusha altered the law (Torah) then he would be guilty of sin and thus eliminating himself from being the Messiah of Yahuah for all mankind- according to Deuteronomy 4:2 & 12:32 No one is too add to Torah or take away from it!
II Peter 3:16,17 "As also in all Pauls letter, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as the do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the error of lawless men, you fall from your own steadfastness."
Ephesians 2:20 "...you are now native of Yah's household. Having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahusha HaMashiach Himself being the corner stones".
The foundation on which Christians should stand is Yahusha, the apostles, and the prophets. Moses was a great prophet and he gave us the Law from the Father! The Law is part of the foundation on which we should be standing and keeping!
Galatians 3:15,17 "...even though it is only a man's covenant, yet when it has been ratified, no one sets it aside or adds conditions to it...What I am saying is this: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years late, does not invalidate a covenant previously ratified by Yah, so as to nullify the promise"
There is a corollary truth to be gleaned from this passage: no new covenant nullifies an old covenant previously made. One covenant builds on top of the other, the new covenant doesn't make null and void the Law- otherwise it must be ok to eat pork, murder, not keep the Sabbath, lie. It is not ok to do these things- we must stop treating the Word of Yah like a buffet by picking and choosing what we will keep and not keep!
Matthew 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven! Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out many demons, and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!!!"
Matthew 5:17-19 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets: I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches (Torah) he shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven."
So Yahusha clearly states that the law is still in place as long as heaven and earth are still here! Look around you, are heaven and earth still here? Of course they are! I consider this the great commission- to keep and teach Torah! Our goal here is to teach people that Torah isn't done away with, and to disciple them so they may walk correctly as Yahusha walked!
I John 2:3-6 "And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep his commandments. The one who says I have come to know Him and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word , in him the love of Yah has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked."
Yahusha kept Torah, and we should walk they way He walked; we should keep Torah! If we don't and we say we have come to know Him, then we lie and the truth (Torah) isn't in us! Yahusha never broke the law, if He did then He couldn't be the Messiah (I John 3:4)! Yahusha never changed the law, if He did then He couldn't be the Messiah (Dueteronomy 4:2). Some may interpret Yahusha has having changed Torah, or breaking Torah; but their interpretation is simply wrong! Yahusha is the Messiah, and we are saved by grace through faith, but we can't use faith as a license to break the law (Galatians 6:1); we can't use our freedom in Messiah as a license to break the law!
I John 3:4 "Sin is breaking the Law!!!!!"
Deuteronomy 12:32 "Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it!"
Galatians 6:1,2 "What shall we say then? Are we to continue to (break the Law) so that grace might increase? No! May it never be! How shall we who died to breaking the Law still continue to break the law?"
Hebrew 10:26 "For if we go on breaking the law willfully after receiving knowledge of the truth (Law), there no longer remains a sacrifice for breaking the law"
Yahusha did not alter, change, or break the Law of Yahuah! If he did then that would be sin and he couldn't be the Messiah! But He is the Messiah!
If we make a practice out of breaking the Law, after receiving knowledge that the Law is not done away with, then the blood of Yahusha no longer covers us! So maybe it's better for you not to gain this knowledge? However, Leviticus 5:19 tells us that we will be held accountable for our sin (breaking the law) even though we were unaware! Sounds scary doesn't it?
I want the reader to know that I wasn't taught this truth - the Father slowly brought me into it by prodding me to read Leviticus 23 and study these Jewish Feasts (The Feasts of Yahuah). Of course, I have been taught and have gleaned and learned many things from people in this Hebrew Roots Movement; but in the beginning it was the Father leading me into it; otherwise I probably would have rejected the truth. I grew up in the Baptist church, I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was eight. My dad is a Baptist minister of over 50 years. I have been to a non-accredited seminary school for 3 years. I have been indoctrinated in Christianity all my life. I have only begun to keep Torah since 2009.
I believe with all my heart that the christian church is in error in their thinking that the law is done away with; and it breaks my heart. I implore you by the grace of Yah to search these things out! I hope my teachings and website will help you. I fear for the salvation of Christians, no matter how sincere they are in their heart. Scripture points to the lawless being unsaved over and over and over again. The devil is the lawless one - let's not be like him! Let's not treat the Father's Word like a buffet by picking and choosing what we keep and don't keep! Lets Keep Torah! Christianity keeps tithing and that's not in the ten commandments. They don't keep the Sabbath, yet that is in the ten commandments. It doesn't make sense! I now keep Sabbath, New Moons, Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles - as commanded by the Father in Leviticus 23; He calls them permanent statutes or commandments forever. I am a former gentile grafted into Israel! I wear tassles as commanded in Numbers 15. I don't eat unclean animals as commanded in Leviticus 11. It's different from christianity who keep thier own traditions rather than the commandments of Yahuah. It makes me peculiar and causes persecution just like the Word says. I don't keep traditions of men that are rooted in pagan origins - I just try to keep the commandments of Yah - all I want is to please the Father! I am truly a new creation in Yahusha! The more knowledge I gain, the more I realize that I don't know anything. May Yahuah draw you near, and help you to walk in His ways!
Psalm 119:142"...Thy Law is Truth"
Below are my PDF files and accompanying sermons on YouTube addressing Torah and lawlessness based on the research I have done over the years.
More Than Ten Commandments My Take on the Law Are You Defiled?
Galatians Hebrews and the change of the Law by Avram Yehoshua
Feasts and Sabbath as a Time Marker in the New Testament by Avram Yehoshua To Keep or Not to Keep the Law Abstain from Lawlessness
The Laws of Yahuah are not done away with!
To be honest with you, if I was to put up every verse I've come across in the Scriptures that shows that the Law isn't done away with it would probably take me a lifetime. There is evidence of the law not being done away with in every single book of the bible , if you know what to look for! Watch out for words like "unrighteousness", "iniquity", "wickedness" - they are all Strongs #G93 which is a synonym of strongs #G458 which means LAWLESSNESS!!!!!!!!!!!! Please, if you have questions, inquiries, disputes, arguments, or a desire to discuss these things email Ken that's Ken@disciplemakingpastor.org. Thank you and may Yahuah bless you.
