Doctrinal Truth

In this study we will unravel what truth is. There are many religious organizations that believe they have the truth, however we don’t want to know what man believes, we want to understand what the scripture presents as the truth. So what we will do is make a comparison between what the nations believe to what scripture teaches.

Truth - The state of being the case; In fact; The body of real things, events, and facts. The quality or state of keeping close to fact and avoiding distortion or misrepresentation.
    The elder, to the beloved Gaios, WHOM I LOVE IN TRUTH: (3 John 1:1 ISR)

We need to know what it is to be in truth, this scripture is written in the new testament and we need to understand that it’s composed of epistles, which are letters written by individuals to people and assemblies that existed over two thousand years ago.

    Beloved ones, I pray for you to do well in every way, and be in health, as your life is doing well. For I rejoiced greatly when brothers came and witnessed of the truth in you, as you walk in the truth. I HAVE NO GREATER JOY THAN TO HEAR OF MY CHILDREN WALKING IN TRUTH. (3 John 1:2-4 ISR)
    Beloved ones, DO NOT BELIEVE EVERY SPIRIT, but prove the spirits, whether they are of Elohim, BECAUSE MANY FALSE PROPHETS HAVE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD. (1 John 4:1 ISR)

Were told to prove the spirits, which means we have to be looking for something.

    We are of Elohim – the one knowing Elohim hears us. He who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this we KNOW THE SPIRIT OF THE TRUTH AND THE SPIRIT OF THE DELUSION. (1 John 4:6 ISR)
    Good and straight is YAH; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. He guides the meek ones in right- ruling, And He teaches the meek ones His way. ALL THE PATHS OF YAH ARE KINDNESS AND TRUTH, TO THOSE WHO GUARD HIS COVENANT AND HIS WITNESSES. (Psalms 25:8-10 ISR)

The paths of YAH are mercy and truth, to those who keep his covenant, which are the laws, precepts and ordinances given in Torah.

    For Your kindness is before my eyes, And I HAVE WALKED IN YOUR TRUTH. (Psalms 26:3 ISR)
    Let all nations You have made Come and bow themselves before You, O YAH, And give esteem to Your Name. For You are great, and are doing wonders; You are Elohim, You alone. TEACH ME YOUR WAY, O YAH; LET ME WALK IN YOUR TRUTH; Unite my heart to fear Your Name. (Psalms 86:9-11 ISR)
    At the presence of YAH. For He shall come, For He shall come to judge the earth. He judges the world in righteousness, And the peoples with His truth. (Psalms 96:13 ISR)

YAH will come to judge the world, to do this there must be a standard, some type of guideline to base his judgment on. He is going to judge the world in righteousness, and the people with his truth. So in order for us to understand what standard is being used we must first understand truth as he declared it and not by what we think or may have heard.

    And the devil, who led them astray, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast and the false prophet are. And they shall be tortured day and night forever and ever. And I saw a great white throne and Him who was sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED FROM WHAT WAS WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS. (Revelation 20:10-12 ISR)

Remember John said to Gaios and the children, "walking in truth" which is an action or work. Notice it says the books were opened, what books are being talked about? The only complete book in the bible is the Torah, the first five books. They are the books of instruction, which is where we find the standards that we will be judged by, as it says "the dead were judged from what was written", so what is written in those books must be pretty important.

What is Truth
    Your word is tried, exceedingly; And Your servant has loved it. I am small and despised; I have not forgotten Your orders. Your righteousness is righteousness forever, AND YOUR TORAH IS TRUTH. (Psalms 119:140-142 ISR)

So here we see the Torah is the truth, which means truth is the Torah. Torah is the first five books of the bible known as the law, so Torah is the instruction book of the law, the instruction book of the truth.

    ‘Do not make idols for yourselves, and do not set up a carved image or a pillar for yourselves, and do not place a stone image in your land, to bow down to it. For I am YAH your Elohim. (Leviticus 26:1 ISR)

Many religious organizations adopted the graven image of a cross which they bow down to, would that be following the truth? There is nothing wrong with images, but do you bow down to them, has it become your point of contact? Yisrael made a golden calf as there point of contact and kindled the wrath of Elohim. This action is called idolatry and it is forbidden according to the truth. Remember David said in Psalms your law or Torah is the truth.

    ‘Guard My Sabbaths and reverence My holy place [Sanctuary]. I am YAH. (Leviticus 26:2 ISR)

When is the Sabbath? Can it be any day? No, and those that say and keep the wrong day are generally doing it because they are following the doctrines of their religious affiliation. The Sabbath is the seventh day, Saturday, any other day is the wrong day, lets look at this in the instruction book.

    And YAH spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, and say to them, ‘The appointed times of YAH, which you are to proclaim as set-apart gatherings, My appointed times, are these: ‘Six days work is done, but the SEVENTH DAY IS A SABBATH OF REST, a set-apart gathering. You do no work, it is a Sabbath to YAH in all your dwellings. (Leviticus 23:1-3 ISR)

The seventh day is the Sabbath day Elohim sanctified according to his word, his truth.

    ‘Guard My Sabbaths and reverence My set-apart place. I am YAH. ‘IF YOU WALK IN MY LAWS AND GUARD MY COMMANDS, AND SHALL DO THEM, (Leviticus 26:2-3 ISR)
    The elder, to the beloved Gaios, whom I love in truth: Beloved ones, I pray for you to do well in every way, and be in health, as your life is doing well. For I rejoiced greatly when brothers came and witnessed of the truth in you, AS YOU WALK IN THE TRUTH. I have no greater joy than to hear of my children walking in truth. (3 John 1:1-4 ISR)

Let’s go back to the law book, the only complete book of the bible.

    ‘If you walk in My laws and guard My commands, and shall do them, (Leviticus 26:3 ISR)
    And the children of Yisra’el said to them, “If only we had died by the hand of YAH in the land of Mitsrayim, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to satisfaction! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to put all this assembly to death with hunger.” And YAH said to Mosheh, “See, I am raining bread from the heavens for you. And the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, IN ORDER TO TRY THEM, WHETHER THEY WALK IN MY TORAH OR NOT. (Exodus 16:3-4 ISR)

    Your righteousness is righteousness forever, And Your Torah is truth. (Psalms 119:142 ISR)

YAH’s righteousness is everlasting and his law is the truth.

    And YAH said to Mosheh, “See, I am raining bread from the heavens for you. And the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, IN ORDER TO TRY THEM, WHETHER THEY WALK IN MY TORAH OR NOT. (Exodus 16:4 ISR)

So if we walk in the law, were walking in truth. Which means if were walking in the law we have the truth!

    In the beginning of the reign of Yehoyaqim the son of Yoshiyahu, the sovereign of Yahdah, this word came from YAH, saying, “Thus said YAH, ‘Stand in the courtyard of the House of YAH, and speak to all the cities of Yahdah, which come to bow themselves in the House of YAH, all the words that I command you to speak to them. DO NOT DIMINISH A WORD. (Jeremiah 26:1-2 ISR)

Do not diminish a word, don’t add to it or take from it. This applies to all YAH’s oracles which are found from Genesis to Malachi.

    ‘If so be that they listen and each turn from his evil way, then I shall repent of the evil that I plan to do to them, because of the evil of their deeds.’ “And you shall say to them, ‘THUS SAID YAH, “IF YOU DO NOT LISTEN TO ME, TO WALK IN MY TORAH [LAW] WHICH I SET BEFORE YOU, (Jeremiah 26:3-4 ISR)

We must walk in his law, which is what his truth is predicated on, it’s defined by the law of YAH.

    so that THEY WALK IN MY LAWS, AND GUARD MY RIGHT-RULINGS, and shall do them. And they shall be My people and I shall be their Elohim. (Ezekiel 11:20 ISR)

    ‘I am YAH your Elohim. WALK IN MY LAWS, AND GUARD MY RIGHT-RULINGS, AND DO THEM. (Ezekiel 20:19 ISR)

The law is the truth, whoever is practicing the law is practicing the truth. In other words, whoever holds the oracles of YAH by word and deed is practicing the truth.

    For THERE IS NO PARTIALITY WITH ELOHIM. For as many as sinned without Torah shall also perish without Torah, and as many as sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah. (Romans 2:11-12 ISR)

YAH is not a respecter of persons, if you sin without law you shall perish without law which brings immediate judgment. So if we commit transgressions without a knowledge of the law, there is no reason for us to be judged by the books of the law which we seen being opened in the book of Revelation 20:10-12, by the time were brought to judgment we have already been judged by the works of our hand, which is a direct reflection of our inward being.

    For not the hearers of the Torah are righteous in the sight of Elohim, but the doers of the law shall be declared right. (Romans 2:13 ISR)

Just hearing and acknowledging the law is not enough, we must be doers of the law to be justified. This is a new testament scripture, how is it so many religious leaders tell us the law was nailed to the cross? If the law was done away with, then where is truth? Didn’t we read in Psalms 119 that the law is the truth? No wonder why there are over 2000 religious denominations all with varying views, they nailed YAH’s standard for righteousness to the cross, this resulted in chaos. We need to return to the truth and start following his law.

    ‘I am YAH your Elohim. Walk in My laws, and guard My right-rulings, and do them. (Ezekiel 20:19 ISR)

    not paying attention to Hebrew fables, AND COMMANDS OF MEN WHO TURN FROM THE TRUTH. (Titus 1:14 ISR)

We have confirmed that the law is the truth as we read in Psalms 119:142, now lets look at an example of a commandment of man that turned people away from the truth. In 321 CE Emperor Constantine gave a declaration that the Sabbath should be held on Sunday, the scriptures clearly mandates the seventh day Saturday. So this man gave a command that turned people from the truth.

    Your righteousness is righteousness forever, And Your Torah [Law] is truth. (Psalms 119:142 ISR)

There has been a 2000 year campaign to annul the Hebraic culture, and most religious organizations recognize the Hebrews as being associated with the law. Christianity teaches that this has been fulfilled in the body of Christ and creatively explains why they believe this is true, however we must also qualify what law was fulfilled in the body of the anointed. The laws that the Anointed fulfilled were the sacrificial laws and Levitical ordinances, so were no longer under these, yet laws that are mandated outside of these have not been done away with. So when we have laws such as the fourth commandment which says, remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy, six days you shall do your labor, but on the seventh a Sabbath of rest, holy to the most high, this has not been fulfilled by the anointed, nor any of the other commandments and ordinances outside those directly associated with the Levitical order, which all had to do with presenting sacrifices to cover the transgression of the people.

    Do your utmost to present yourself approved to Elohim, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly handling the Word of Truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 ISR)

The word of truth is not referring to the new testament, these books did not exist when Sha’ul wrote this epistle, the books of the new testament were assembled in the latter part of the fourth century. The new testament is not scripture it is composed of epistles, letters written to specific people or assemblies. This one was written to timothy, so when he says study to show yourself approved he is talking about the books from Genesis to Malachi. Today we reference the epistles because there is great substance in these books and it is profitable for understanding and receiving further clarity on the books from Genesis to Malachi.

The reason there are so many denominations in Christianity is because they are not rightly dividing the word of truth, each denomination is dividing the word in there own way coming up with there own interpretation, the primary reason for this is because they draw most, if not all there understanding from the New Testament, and without a solid foundation and understanding in the Old Testament there is no possible way to comprehend what is written in the New Testament.

 

The word is divided first to fulfill prophecy in regards to how one is going to learn and be taught, and the best approach to studying scripture is to take a subject and search out all the scripture related to a topic and start to paint an accurate picture of what the bible has to say about that subject. The more exhaustive the study the less chance there is for error or coming up with your own interpretation.
    Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand doctrine? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! (Isaiah 28:9 ISR)

There is only one doctrine in scripture and there should not be so much debate over what the truth is. One doctrine and one standard for all.

    For it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. (Isaiah 28:10 ISR)

Precept upon precept, law upon law, line upon line, and word upon word. We must rightly divide the word of truth, lets look at an example of an unrighteous division of truth.

    “And see, I have given the children of Levi all the tithes in Yisra’el as an inheritance in return for the service which they are serving, the service of the Tent of Meeting. (Numbers 18:21 ISR)

The scripture says that Levi received a tenth in Yisrael, is your pastor a Levi? The scripture is clear that the tithe was given to the Levitical priesthood, which was fulfilled in the anointed, the only priest today is Yahshua who acts as our high priest. Religious leaders tell us the law has been fulfilled and nailed to the cross, yet they go to the law book and tell us we must tithe. They pick and choose verses to present a message that is not consistent with scripture, and if anyone just took the time to read the verses in context they would see this also.

    “And let the children of Yisra’el no more come near the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die, (Numbers 18:22 ISR)

    But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto YAH, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. (Numbers 18:24 RNKJV)

The tithe has never been collected in a monetary form, even though money was a viable part of their society, it was always as food.

    And YAH spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak to the Levites and say to them, ‘When you take from the children of Yisra’el the tithes which I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you shall present a contribution of it to YAH, a tenth of the tithe. (Numbers 18:25-26 ISR)

The Levite’s paid tithes to the priests, so the people brought a tenth of their livestock and crops to the Levite’s and they in turn gave a tenth of what they received to the priests so there would be food for those in the service of YAH.

    ‘And your contribution shall be reckoned to you as grain from the threshing-floor and as filling from the winepress. ‘Thus you also present a contribution unto YAH from all your tithes which you receive from the children of Yisra’el. And you shall give from it the contribution to YAH to Aharon the priest. ‘From all your gifts you present every contribution due to YAH, from all the best of them, the set-apart part of them.’ “And you shall say to them, ‘When you have presented the best of it, then the rest shall be reckoned to the Levites as the yield of the threshing-floor and as the yield of the winepress. ‘AND YOU SHALL EAT IT IN ANY PLACE, you and your households, for it is your reward for your service in the Tent of Meeting, (Numbers 18:27-31 ISR)

You can see you don’t spend tithes, it was food eaten by the Levitical order, which is not in operation in this age. The tithe was revived by the protestants in the early part of the twentieth century, assemblies and churches always survived off free will offerings, which is the example we see in the new testament. If your ecclesiastical leaders have told you the law has been done away with, then why do they go into the law book and try to collect tithes? This is not truth, just a cleverly devised fable!

    “For I am YAH, I shall not change, and you, O sons of Yaaqob, shall not come to an end. “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My laws and did not guard them. Turn back to Me, and I shall turn back to you,” said YAH of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what shall we turn back?’ “Would a man rob Elohim? Yet you are robbing Me! But you said, ‘In what have we robbed You?’ In the tithe and the offering! (Malachi 3:6- 8 ISR)

What our religious leaders are teaching today is that we must pay tithes, then we have regular offerings, love offerings, the building fund, special leadership gifts, and finally a fund for the poor. There would be a lot less poor people if they were not robbing from the people. You may think that you are giving willingly so it is not robbery, however the word of Elohim is being used deceitfully in these situations, it is being divided unrighteously to create an income which is nothing less than robbery.

We are not saying you shouldn’t give to your assembly, however it should be in accordance with scripture, which means that the assembly should operate on free will offerings.
    “You have cursed Me with a curse, for you are robbing Me, this nation, all of it! “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and let there be food in My house. And please prove Me in this,” said YAH of hosts, “whether I do not open for you the windows of the heavens, and shall pour out for you boundless blessing! (Malachi 3:9-10 ISR)

This is being written to the Levite\'s, who received the tithe from the people then in turn had to tithe what they received to the priests, however they had not been doing this. The storehouse specifically referred to a place around the temple that was built to hold food to feed the priests, which was built several hundred years after Solomon finished the temple. When Elohim is promising to open the windows of heaven, he is specifically referring to making it rain so the crops would grow. None of this in anyway has anything to do with money, the tithe was always food and only meant for the Levitical order who was in charge of mediating the propitiation offerings.

    I did not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because no falsehood is of the truth. (1 John 2:21 ISR)

You either have the truth or you don’t, there is no gray area.

    worthless disputes of men of corrupt minds and DEPRIVED OF THE TRUTH, who think that REVERENCE IS A MEANS OF GAIN – withdraw from such. (1 Timothy 6:5 ISR)

We have to qualify and define what the truth is so you can properly evaluate if you have the truth. If your religious organization believes that gain is a sign of blessing and proves that they have the truth, take Sha’ul’s advice and withdraw from them. All the teachings that center on prosperity are not doctrine, they are the foolishness of men who do not rightly divide the word of truth, these teaching promote covetousness.

    But reverence [deep respect] with contentment [peaceful satisfaction] is great gain. For we brought naught into the world, and it is impossible to take any out. WHEN WE HAVE FOOD AND COVERING, WE SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH THESE. (1 Timothy 6:6-8 ISR)

This all comes down to our priorities, we should be satisfied with food and a place to live, walking in reverence with contentment. There is nothing wrong with trying to build security, even Solomon said money is a security, however it’s important we prioritize it properly and keep everything in the right perspective.

    In the sight of Elohim and the Master Yahshua Messiah, who shall judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His reign, I earnestly charge you: Proclaim the Word! Be urgent in season, out of season. Reprove, warn, appeal, with all patience and teaching. FOR THERE SHALL BE A TIME WHEN THEY SHALL NOT BEAR SOUND TEACHING, BUT ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN DESIRES, THEY SHALL HEAP UP FOR THEMSELVES TEACHERS TICKLING THE EAR, (2 Timothy 4:1-3 ISR)

Sha’ul said, how can one learn unless he has a teacher, and how can one teach unless he be sent. You can’t go out and hire a teacher, nor can you fire one, if he has been anointed of YAH, you either receive him or reject him, presentation and how charismatic they might be have nothing to do with it. Seminaries, Cemeteries, and theological institutions do not qualify someone as a teacher of YAH. For a more detailed examination of this subject read the article on The Teachers of YAH.

    and THEY SHALL INDEED TURN THEIR EARS AWAY FROM THE TRUTH, AND BE TURNED ASIDE TO MYTHS. (2 Timothy 4:4 ISR)

They are going to find people that will play to there own lustful desires, in other words they will be looking for teaching centered on things that bring personal satisfaction, such as prosperity and healing.

    Hear the word which YAH speaks to you, O house of Yisra’el. Thus said YAH, “Do not learn the way of the gentiles, and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them. (Jeremiah 10:1-2 ISR)

Were given a commandment in this scripture, "learn not the ways of the nations."

    “For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. “They adorn it with silver and gold, they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple. (Jeremiah 10:3-4 ISR)

The scripture goes on to elaborate on the ways of the nations, for their customs are futile, vain, self- righteous, and self fulfilling. They don’t do anything to glorify YAH, they glorify there culture, traditions, and the people they venerated. Then we see how they cut down a tree and decorated it with gold and silver and make a stand so it won’t topple, this is obviously what we would call a Christmas tree being discussed by Jeremiah as part of the worthless customs around 600 BC. were given an example of one of the customs we should not indulge in, it’s obvious the pagan holiday of Christmas, which existed long before it was called Christmas, somehow turned into a celebration of Christ’s birthday. There is a lot that could be said about this day and who is really being worshipped by participating in this celebration. Many might say, I’m worshipping Jesus and that’s what’s important, however when you decorate for this holiday you are using symbols that represent and glorify false gods, the wreath, lights, tinsel, red & green colors, pagan worship music etc... The scriptures give us clear guidelines of what appointed times glorify the Most High, Passover, Unleavened bread, Pentecost, Tabernacles, Trumpets, and Atonement. Nowhere do we see Christmas, Easter, Good Friday, Halloween, Valentines day and Sunday worship to name a few.

    And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands. The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (1 John 2:3-4 ISR)

There are many who proclaim to be following YAH’s commandments, however we have been given a dietary code, specific feast days, Sabbaths, and a full set of ordinances governing our behavior and how we worship YAH. If we don’t keep these commands, but claim to know him, we are liars!

The people who have the truth are the ones that follow all his commands, which were given in the first five books of the bible and the witnesses of the prophets. These are the ones that keep his dietary ordinances, Sabbath ordinances, Moral ordinances, and are purified in the name of Yahshua the anointed. If you are not keeping his laws, ordinances and precepts you are not walking in the truth.
    You are near, O YAH, And all Your commands are truth. (Psalms 119:151 ISR)
    “Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth. (John 17:17 ISR)
    “And for them I set Myself apart, so that they too might be set apart in truth. (John 17:19 ISR)

Christendom makes up over 30% of the world population and almost everything they teach is opposed to scripture. When Yahshua says depart from me you who are without law, isn’t it obvious he’s talking about an ecclesiastical body that promotes lawlessness by teaching that the law has been done away with? The covenant has always been with Yisrael, when we are purified in the name of Yahshua the anointed and enter the covenant freed from our past sins, then were expected to adhere to the commands of the Sinaitic covenant. Yahshua fulfilled the system of animal sacrifice that was setup so when someone breaks the covenant they can be redeemed from death by substituting there punishment of death with an animals death, however the covenant itself remains in tacked and we must follow the laws, ordinances, and dictates that we are acknowledging at Purification. The only thing that has changed is now when we break the law (sin) we approach YAH for forgiveness through our high priest and intercessor, Yahshua the anointed.

    “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you wish to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it. (John 8:44 ISR)

    and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32 ISR)

The truth shall MAKE you free, it will drive and push you, as it is received.

    For the Word of Elohim is living, and working, and sharper than any two-edged sword, cutting through even to the dividing of being and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all are naked and laid bare before the eyes of Him with whom is our account. (Hebrews 4:12-13 ISR)
    Blessed are the perfect in the way, Who walk in the teaching of YAH! Blessed are those who observe His witnesses, Who seek Him with all the heart! Yea, they shall do no unrighteousness; They shall walk in His ways. You have commanded us To guard Your orders diligently. Oh, that my ways were established To guard Your laws! Then I would not be ashamed, When I look into all Your commands. (Psalms 119:1-6 ISR)
    How would a young man cleanse his path. To guard it according to Your word? (Psalms 119:9 ISR)

The word of Elohim is like a sword dividing asunder flesh and mind, the truth shall make you free! The truth is the laws of Elohim, lets see where we can find the truth.

    These things I write to you, hoping to come to you shortly; but if I wait long, that you may know how men ought to behave themselves in the house of Elohim, which is the assembly of the living Elohim, the pillar and ground of the truth. (1Ti 3:14-15 RNWEB)

Let’s see why Sha’ul was able to make this statement. The Psalmist said:

    Unless YAH builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless YAH watches over the city, the watchman guards it in vain. (Psa 127:1 RNWEB)

Elohim’s house or assemblies are built on truth.

    You are near, YAH. All your commandments are truth. (Psa 119:151 RNWEB)
    Sanctify them in your truth. Your word is truth. (Joh 17:17 RNWEB)

The Tabernacle alone is where Truth is supposed to be disseminated to the masses for a spiritual understanding of how to serve YAH and the mind of YAH (His Will).

    Many peoples shall go and say, "Come, let\'s go up to the mountain of YAH, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Tziyon the law shall go forth, and the word of YAH from Yerushalayim. (Isa 2:3 RNWEB)

Now lets look where Sha’ul got the understanding that the Tabernacle was the foundation and pillar for Elohim\'s word (Truth).

    It grew great, even to the host of the sky; and some of the host and of the stars it cast down to the ground, and trampled on them. Yes, it magnified itself, even to the prince of the host; and it took away from him the continual [burnt offering], and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. The army was given over [to it] together with the continual [burnt offering] through disobedience; and it cast down truth to the ground, and it did [its pleasure] and prospered. (Dan 8:10-12 RNWEB)

This scripture is speaking about when Antiochus Epiphanes defiled the temple. So what is Daniel saying? Is he telling us that Antiochus Epiphanes over threw the Malachem which ordained the sacrifices and cast them to the ground? Who are the host of heaven? Who is the prince of the host? Let’s look at what was cast down to the ground:

    Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who spoke, How long shall be the vision [concerning] the continual [burnt offering], and the disobedience that makes desolate, to give both the sanctuary and the army to be trodden under foot? He said to me, To two thousand and three hundred evenings [and] mornings; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Dan 8:13-14 RNWEB)

The Malachem (Hosts) were removed from their place in order for Antiochus Epiphanes to come and defile the Temple, the Sanctuary of Elohim, which is also called the TRUTH. Sha’ul was able to make his statement to Timothy because this is where Sha’ul, Apostles, and disciples get the Assemblies of Elohim being the Assembly of the Truth, since it began with YAH’s house which kept and taught his word.

    Many nations will go and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YAH, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Tziyon will go forth the law, and the word of YAH from Yerushalayim; (Mic 4:2 RNWEB)

We do not have the temple such as it is in this dispensation; we have Moahdeem or meeting places which serve as the foundation and pillar of the Truth, which is designed to replicate the Temple Truth and its Operation.

    They said in their heart, "We will crush them completely." They have burned up all the places in the land where Elohim was worshiped. (Psa 74:8 RNWEB)

Final Thought

It would be foolish for anyone to think that the word of Elohim and how he defines truth would change in the New testament. How can what truth is change?
