MoreiYah, Teacher of YAH

The purpose of this study is to show how one recognizes a Moreiyah, which is a teacher sent and ordained by YAH, as opposed to one sent by the adversary. We will show the scriptural qualifications that a teacher must meet to be a messenger endorsed by YAH, and answer the following questions.

  • Who are the teachers of Elohim?
  • What word was in the Moreiyah's mouth?
  • What did the teachers turn people away from?
  • What will a true teacher and student guard above all?
  • What happens when there are no Moreiyah's?
  • Do we need to submit to a teacher as a covering?
  • What is truth?
  • Who are those who use the word deceitfully?

The process to enter the covenant of YAH comes through the knowledge and understanding of who he is, and how to serve him. To achieve this divine learning and understanding, YAH has always used messengers, teachers, and judges to communicate his word for the edification and deliverance of his people.

In the New Covenant age, YAH has raised moreim, which means teachers. The teachers sole responsibility is to teach YAH’s people how to serve him in truth, holiness, and righteousness according to scriptural dictates, which are the commandments of YAH found in the law and witnessed by the prophets and later confirmed by the apostles. In this study we are going to observe for ourselves the type of teachers YAH selects and the style in which they present his message.

The objective of this study is to show the message and the criteria that Elohim has mandated for all his teachers to meet and follow. We will do this by showing what the central theme is for a teacher that’s selected to represent YAH’s word. We will also explain how to know if we’re in the presence of a Moreiyah or teacher of the adversary.

    Behold, I HAVE TAUGHT YOU STATUTES AND ORDINANCES, EVEN AS YAH MY ELOHIM COMMANDED ME, that you should do so in the midst of the land where you go in to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; FOR THIS IS YOUR WISDOM AND YOUR UNDERSTANDING IN THE SIGHT OF THE PEOPLES, who shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what great nation is there, that has a elohim so near to them, as YAH our Elohim is whenever we call on him? WHAT GREAT NATION IS THERE, THAT HAS STATUTES AND ORDINANCES SO RIGHTEOUS AS ALL THIS LAW, which I set before you this day? (Deuteronomy 4:5-8 RNEB)

We will be describing a Moreiyah using the scriptures. These are not the people that graduated seminary, are entertaining, or speak some Greek and Latin. We’re looking for the teachers ordained by YAH, those who teach what he has mandated.

    YAH spoke to Aharon, saying, "Drink no wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, that you don’t die: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations: (Leviticus 10:8-9 RNEB)

The priests, which were the ecclesiastical leaders were not to be under the influence of alcohol when entering the tent of meeting.

    and that you are to make a distinction between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean; and that you are to teach the children of Yisra’el all the statutes which YAH has spoken to them by Moshe." (Leviticus 10:10-11 RNEB)

YAH told them not to be intoxicated when they entered the tabernacle to simplify and explain his word, they had to be able to distinguish the difference between clean from unclean, holy from profane, and teach all the laws.

We will clearly distinguish the difference between a teacher YAH has ordained as opposed to one Helel has sent. Remember, Helel said he would be just like the Most High, he has counterfeited everything YAH ordained, which includes holidays, prophets, teachers, and gifts.

    All the people gathered themselves together as one man into the broad place that was before the water gate; and they spoke to Ezra the scribe to bring the scroll of the Torah of Moshe, which YAH had commanded to Yisra’el. (Nehemiah 8:1 RNEB)
    Ezra the Priest brought the law before the assembly, both men and women, and all who could hear with understanding, on the first day of the seventh month. He read therein before the broad place that was before the water gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and the women, and of those who could understand; and the ears of all the people were [attentive] to the scroll of the Torah. (Nehemiah 8:2-3 RNEB)

Their ears were all attentive to the book of the law, Hebrews are known for the law, because it was revealed to them by YAH. They were given this charge and code of ethics so they could learn and be reformed from paganistic behavior and practices.

    Ezra the scribe stood on a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattityah, and Shema, and `Anayah, and Uriyah, and Chilkiyah, and Ma`aseyah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedayahu, and Misha’el, and Malkiyah, and Chashum, and Chashbaddanah, Zekharyah, [and] Meshullam. Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up: and Ezra blessed YAH, the great Elohim. All the people answered, Amein, Amein, with the lifting up of their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshiped YAH with their faces to the ground. Also Yahshua, and Bani, and Sherevyah, Yamin, `Akkuv, Shabbetai, Hodiyah, Ma`aseyah, Kelita, `Azaryah, Yozavad, Chanan, Pelayah, and the Levites, CAUSED THE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THE LAW: and the people [stood] in their place. (Nehemiah 8:4-7 RNEB)

The elders are on the left and right of what we call a pulpit today, then Ezra opened the book of the law and everyone stood because they were about to hear the oracles of Elohim, YAH’s law. Notice it says they caused the people to understand the law, there charge was to make the law easily understood, they did this with parables, illustrations, analogies, examples, and a number of other methods. It was important that the people knew how to serve YAH according to his code of ethics.

    They read in the book, in the law of Elohim, distinctly; and they gave the sense, so that they understood the reading. Nechemyah, who was the governor, and Ezra the Priest the scribe, and the Levites who taught the people, said to all the people, This day is holy to YAH your Elohim; don’t mourn, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law. (Nehemiah 8:8-9 RNEB)

They read the book of the law and provided understanding and clarity. So what they were doing was reading, then expounding on the word to make sure the people fully understood what it was saying.

Moshe said don’t add or take away from the law, they studied from Genesis to Malachi. If we start using books outside those ordained by Elohim were going to be confused and lack proper understanding. It’s only by knowing and understanding the law that we realize we shouldn’t get involved in astrology, numerology, witchcraft, new age mysticism, power of the mind, fortune telling, and many of other things being propagated within the world system and religious bodies today.

    The Spirit of Elohim came on `Azaryah the son of `Oded: and he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, Hear you me, Asa, and all Judah and Binyamin: YAH is with you, while you are with him; and if you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you. (2 Chronicles 15:1-2 RNEB)

If we’re sincere when we seek Elohim and his truth, we will find it.

    Now for a long season Yisra’el was without the true Elohim, and without a teaching Priest, and without law: (2 Chronicles 15:3 RNEB)

Yisrael had strayed and were practicing all types of abominations. The true Elohim was not present because no one was teaching the people the law, so they were walking in lawlessness. If we’re not rooted in the first five books of the bible we don’t know Elohim. You may have faith in a god, but that’s it. Pagans have faith in a god also! Only the first five books of scripture can give us a clear and precise understanding of who Elohim is and how he must be served. It’s only by having a teacher ordained by the Most High that we will gain a proper understanding of how to live and follow his code of ethics so we can walk in righteousness and inherit eternal life.

    Yehoshafat his son reigned in his place, and strengthened himself against Yisra’el. He placed forces in all the fortified cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Efrayim, which Asa his father had taken. YAH was with Yehoshafat, BECAUSE HE WALKED IN THE FIRST WAYS OF HIS FATHER DAVID, AND DIDN’T SEEK THE BA`ALIM, BUT SOUGHT TO THE ELOHIM OF HIS FATHER, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Yisra’el. Therefore YAH established the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Yehoshafat tribute; and he had riches and honor in abundance. His heart was lifted up in the ways of YAH: and furthermore he took away the high places and the Asherim out of Judah. (2 Chronicles 17:1-6 RNEB)

Even though YAH had established laws against idolatry, Yisrael had turned to Baal worship, Yehoshafat, a king who served the true Elohim removed all the Asherim poles from the high places in Judah and reestablished the laws of YAH. Notice it says he walked in the former ways of his father David, this means he followed the laws and precepts of YAH, holding to the same code of ethics as his father David.

    Also in the third year of his reign he sent his princes, even Ben-Chayil, and `Ovadyah , and Zekharyah, and Netan’el , and Mikhayahu, to teach in the cities of Judah; (2 Chronicles 17:7 RNEB)

Yehoshafat in the third year of his reign sent out men to teach the laws and precepts of YAH in all the cities of Judah. Teachers were necessary to help the people understand the laws so they could follow them with some level of understanding. Without the understanding they would have never been able to apply them properly.

    and with them the Levites, even Shemayah, and Netanyah, and Zevadyah, and `Asa’el, and Shemiramot, and Yehonatan, and Adoniyahu, and Toviyah, and Tobadonijah, the Levites; and with them Elishama and Yehoram, the priests. They taught in Judah, having the scroll of the Torah of YAH with them; and THEY WENT ABOUT THROUGHOUT ALL THE CITIES OF JUDAH, AND TAUGHT AMONG THE PEOPLE. (2 Chronicles 17:8-9 RNEB)

All the teachers taught from the Torah, there’s no way to have a relationship with Elohim without understanding the laws and precepts he set forth in the first five books. If someone is claiming to be a teacher and avoids or annuls the laws of Elohim, they aren’t a teacher of YAH.

Yahshua also did this during his ministry, he had twelve apostles and seventy disciples and sent them throughout Judea and Yerushalayim to teach the people. He also commanded his apostles to go out and teach after his resurrection. How can one know unless he is taught, how can one be taught without a teacher?

    The law of truth was in his mouth, and unrighteousness was not found in his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and turned many away from lawlessness. (Malachi 2:6 RNEB)

This refers to the teachers, the law of truth was in there mouth. Yahshua said we will be a kingdom of priests, however this would be better translated teachers. In the old testament one of the roles of a priest was to teach. In the new covenant their was only one priest and that’s our High Priest Yahshua the anointed, who sent out non priests and non Levite’s to go out and teach people the laws, which will continue to the end of this age. During the millennial age the sons of Tzadok, priests out of the line of Eliezer will be reinstated. The 144000 and the dead in the Messiah will be the governors immortal, they will reign over the earth under Yahshua. There are many things that will take place which are detail in the studies on Prophecy.

The teachers turned many away from lawlessness by identifying what it was, so if someone is teaching that the laws have passed away they can’t possibly be teachers of YAH. A teacher would tell you things like Christmas, Sunday Sabbath, and Easter are wrong. The true teachers of YAH will help you identify these things, sadly most people are more interested in holding onto tradition. YAH provided his teachers and us with a detailed manual that explains what lawlessness is, regrettably there is also a civil body of people that have redefined lawlessness and created there own laws and precepts, which means everyone has to make a choice between YAH’s standard and mans.

    FOR THE PRIEST’S LIPS SHOULD KEEP KNOWLEDGE, AND THEY SHOULD SEEK THE LAW AT HIS MOUTH; for he is the messenger of YAH of Armies. (Malachi 2:7 RNEB)

The true teachers and disciples will guard the knowledge of the law. Today everything seems to be about faith, but to what end? The more sure word of prophecy is the written word of Elohim, which we can find in the Torah and books of the prophets. We’re supposed to seek the law from the teachers mouth, not the words of false prophets that tantalize and tickle our ears.

    "Now therefore, my sons, listen to me, for BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO KEEP MY WAYS. (Proverbs 8:32 RNEB)

Blessed are those that keep Elohim’s ways, not mans ways. It doesn’t say blessed are those who tithe, stand in faith for a healing, or some other form of foolishness being taught today. We need teachers that will provide understanding on the laws and precepts of YAH, not the traditions and muddled doctrines being taught in the Church today.

    If there arise a matter too hard for you in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within your gates; then shall you arise, and go up to the place which YAH your Elohim shall choose; and YOU SHALL COME TO THE PRIESTS THE LEVITES, and to the judge who shall be in those days: and you shall inquire; and they shall show you the sentence of judgment. (Deuteronomy 17:8-9 RNEB)

The priests were YAH’s teachers during this time, and they would listen to a problem or situation and make a judgement based on what was written in the law.

    You shall do according to the tenor of the sentence which they shall show you from that place which YAH shall choose; and YOU SHALL OBSERVE TO DO ACCORDING TO ALL THAT THEY SHALL TEACH YOU: ACCORDING TO THE TENOR OF THE LAW WHICH THEY SHALL TEACH YOU, AND ACCORDING TO THE JUDGMENT WHICH THEY SHALL TELL YOU, YOU SHALL DO; you shall not turn aside from the sentence which they shall show you, to the right hand, nor to the left. (Deuteronomy 17:10-11 RNEB)

When we’re instructed from Elohim’s word, it must be done! He’s showing us the statute, judgment, and commandment, they were not put in place for us to reject them. The only standard for righteousness is the one that was set by Elohim.

    The man who does presumptuously, in not listening to the Priest who stands to minister there before YAH your Elohim, or to the judge, even that man shall die: and you shall put away the evil from Yisra’el. (Deuteronomy 17:12 RNEB)

If we don’t adhere to the commandments of Elohim the result will be death. YAH told us to go to his instructors and learn how to address problems according to the law, it has nothing to do with what we think or feel. We follow what Elohim has instructed through his teachers, those who understand his code of ethics for guiding us to eternal life. If we do what we think rather than what YAH declared, we shall die, and not inherit eternal life.

    All the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously. (Deuteronomy 17:13 RNEB)
    For my people have forgotten me, they have burned incense to false [elohims]; and they have been made to stumble in their ways, in the ancient paths, to walk in byways, in a way not built up; (Jeremiah 18:15 RNEB)

For a long time Yisrael did not serve the true Elohim, they were serving pagan gods. One of the main reasons for this was there were no priests teaching from the books of the law, without teachers the people forgot YAH. When Babylon conquered a nation it use to take all the metal workers and artisans out of the land, they did this so the people left in the nation had no way of making weapons, which assured there servitude. Similarly when the priestly line was compromised the entire nation fell, because these were the ones that were responsible for teaching the laws and judging the people. When the people no longer were learning the law they turned to pagan practices and deities. This has not changed at all today, multitudes are being misled by teachings that they think are correct, however there not and very few have the fortitude or desire to question the religious system they put there trust in.

    Return, backsliding children, says YAH; for I am a husband to you: and I will take you, one from a city, and two from a family, and I will bring you to Tziyon: and I WILL GIVE YOU SHEPHERDS ACCORDING TO MY HEART, WHO SHALL FEED YOU WITH KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING. (Jeremiah 3:14-15 RNEB)

YAH wanted the Hebrews to have teachers according to his heart to feed the people knowledge and understanding. This is important because we must be taught the scripture in its purest form without traditions, errors, and malicious intent. YAH’s teachers were responsible for building the foundation of the peoples lives and without them Yisrael always strayed and forgot him.

    Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says YAH. THEREFORE THUS SAYS YAH, THE ELOHIM OF YISRA’EL, AGAINST THE SHEPHERDS WHO FEED MY PEOPLE: You have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them; behold, I will visit on you the evil of your doings, says YAH. I WILL GATHER THE REMNANT OF MY FLOCK OUT OF ALL THE COUNTRIES WHERE I HAVE DRIVEN THEM, AND WILL BRING THEM AGAIN TO THEIR FOLDS; AND THEY SHALL BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY. I WILL SET UP SHEPHERDS [TEACHERS] OVER THEM, WHO SHALL FEED THEM; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be lacking, says YAH. (Jeremiah 23:1-4 RNEB)

They would not be lacking knowledge, this is important because it’s knowledge that provides us with stability and assurance.

    I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of the Anointed, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed. SHEPHERD THE FLOCK OF ELOHIM WHICH IS AMONG YOU, EXERCISING THE OVERSIGHT, NOT UNDER COMPULSION, BUT VOLUNTARILY, NOT FOR DISHONEST GAIN, BUT WILLINGLY; (1 Peter 5:1-2 RNEB)

There are many teachers in various churches and assemblies that will teach without clarity, being vague, not providing any true understanding, and are often quick to avoid questions. Many of the doctrines being taught are not scripturally sound, by twisting the word they justify the foolishness they aspire, such as misguided teachings on tithing, seed time and harvest, and heaven and hell, just to name a few. People need to wake up and begin to test and prove what’s being taught, this is a matter of life and death.

    neither as mastering it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock. When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn’t fade away. (1 Peter 5:3-4 RNEB)

Teachers are supposed to guide and provide understanding, however they are not to take the position of ruler or master over someones life. They should be teaching and leading by example.

We are establishing what a teacher of YAH looks like, and trying to show the foundation that he operates from, this is not something subject to interpretation, personal thoughts, or feelings. When we’re looking for the truth on a matter it can only come from properly contextualized scripture.

    Wrap up the testimony. Seal the law among my disciples. (Isaiah 8:16 RNEB)

The witness or testimony are all the books of the prophets (Joshua - Malachi), the ones after the five law books (Genesis - Deuteronomy). All the disciples or followers of YAH will be sealed by the law, which means to be established irrevocably in the law.

    Turn to the law and to the testimony! If they don’t speak according to this word, surely there is no morning for them. (Isaiah 8:20 RNEB)

In other words if the teachers or disciples don’t speak according to the law and the prophets, there is no truth in them.

    "Now there was a certain rich man, and he was clothed in purple and fine linen, living in luxury every day. A certain beggar, named El’azar, was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. Yes, even the dogs came and licked his sores. It happened that the beggar died, and that he was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. (Luke 16:19-22 RNEB)

The first thing we need to establish is this as a parable and not an actual factual account as many Christians are taught and believe. So lets look at some scripture to prove this point.

    No one has ascended into heaven, but he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven. (John 3:13 RNEB)

This scripture is very clear, no one has ascended into heaven other than Yahshua. Man’s inheritance is the earth, nowhere are we promised heaven. Remember that the scriptures say the meek shall inherit the earth.

Let’s look at the last great day, the war that will take place between Yahshua and the nations, which was led by two great powers, one political and the other ecclesiastical.

    I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army. The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. THESE TWO WERE THROWN ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE THAT BURNS WITH SULFUR. (Revelation 19:19-20 RNEB)
    The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Revelation 20:10 RNEB)

The devil and the spirit that led the corresponding religious system were in this fire, however there is no mention of the rich man or any man. The only one’s that ever went to heaven are Yahshua and the saints that were presented as the first fruits at his resurrection, which are the twenty four elders mentioned in the book of revelation. All the others who died will either be raised in the first or second resurrection, one occurs before the millennial reign of Yahshua and the other at the end. Let’s go back now and finish the parable of the rich man and El’azar.

    In the grave, he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far off, and El’azar at his bosom. He cried and said, ’Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send El’azar, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue! For I am in anguish in this flame.’ "But Abraham said, ’Son, remember that you, in your lifetime, received your good things, and El’azar, in like manner, bad things. But now here he is comforted and you are in anguish. Besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, that those who want to pass from here to you are not able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’ "He said, ’I ask you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house; for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, so they won’t also come into this place of torment.’ "But Abraham said to him, ’THEY HAVE MOSHE AND THE PROPHETS. Let them listen to them.’ "He said, ’No, father Abraham, but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ "He said to him, ’IF THEY DON’T LISTEN TO MOSHE AND THE PROPHETS, NEITHER WILL THEY BE PERSUADED IF ONE RISES FROM THE DEAD.’" (Luke 16:23-31 RNEB)

Yahshua’s purpose for using this parable was to show the exact same thing it says in Isaiah 8:16, we have to listen to the law given to Moshe and the prophets to even have an opportunity of inheriting eternal life.

All YAH’s teachers must teach from the law and the prophets, and confirm this same word when teaching from the New Testament. This is the only acceptable way they can teach, there is only one set of instructions. You are not dealing with a sanctified teacher of Elohim if he teaches any other way.

    So when they had eaten their breakfast, Yahshua said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Yonah, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Master; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "FEED MY LAMBS." He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Yonah, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Master; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "TEND MY SHEEP." He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Yonah, do you have affection for me?" Peter was grieved because he asked him the third time, "Do you have affection for me?" He said to him, "Master, you know everything. You know that I have affection for you." Yahshua said to him, "FEED MY SHEEP. (John 21:15-17 RNEB)

Yahshua told Simon Peter to feed his sheep, in other words teach them what I have taught you. Yahshua always taught from the law and the prophets, there was no new testament to even reference until over three hundred years after Yahshua’s resurrection.

    Take heed, therefore, to yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, TO SHEPHERD {FEED} THE ASSEMBLY OF ELOHIM WHICH HE PURCHASED WITH HIS OWN BLOOD. (Acts 20:28 RNEB)

They were instructed to shepherd or teach the assembly, but what were they teaching? The only thing they knew, the books of the law and the prophets. If the Apostles taught from the old Testament, why is it so readily accepted today that it has little or no importance?

    Let not many of you be teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive heavier judgment. (James 3:1 RNEB)

This just emphasizes how important it is to teach from scripture contextually and to take the time to provide understanding so that YAH’s disciples are not led astray. The teacher will receive a greater judgement, so before anyone professes to be teaching sound doctrine they should consider this warning. In Christendom very little thought is given to these warnings, people seem to have the idea they can become pastors and teachers and not ever properly understand the word themselves. A new standard has been set which Elohim has not ordained.

    For in many things we all stumble. If anyone doesn’t stumble in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. (James 3:2 RNEB)

Sha’ul said we should not be as those that use the word deceitfully, and James is saying the same thing, when he said we should not stumble in word, but should bridle the tongue, be in control. The control starts in the mind by meditating, learning, and understanding the laws and ordnances of Elohim.

    Therefore go, and make disciples of all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28:19 RNEB)
    and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning at Yerushalayim. (Luke 24:47 RNEB)

Before we can repent we must know what we’re doing wrong. The only way we can know this is by learning the laws and precepts of Elohim, which requires a teacher to be properly understood.

    For, "Whoever will call on the name of YAH will be saved." HOW THEN WILL THEY CALL ON HIM IN WHOM THEY HAVE NOT BELIEVED? HOW WILL THEY BELIEVE IN HIM WHOM THEY HAVE NOT HEARD? HOW WILL THEY HEAR WITHOUT A PREACHER? (Romans 10:13-14 RNEB)

We cannot call on YAH if you don’t believe, and there is no way we can believe without hearing, and how will we hear without a teacher? We cannot establish a relationship with the Most High unless we know who he is, and the only way to really know is through a qualified teacher who can provide proper understanding of his laws and precepts.

    And HOW WILL THEY PREACH UNLESS THEY ARE SENT? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:15 RNEB)

A teacher has to be sent, YAH calls his teachers they aren’t self appointed, the position cannot be earned by a degree from seminary, or by a man simply proclaiming he’s a teacher.

    I tell the truth in the Anointed. I am not lying, my conscience testifying with me in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and unceasing pain in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from the Anointed for my brothers’ sake, my relatives according to the flesh, WHO ARE YISRA’ELI’S; WHOSE IS THE ADOPTION, THE GLORY, THE COVENANTS, THE GIVING OF THE LAW, THE SERVICE, AND THE PROMISES; (Romans 9:1-4 RNEB)

The covenant and promises were given to Yisrael and it’s there responsibility to teach the law, this is one of the ways we will know YAH’s teacher, they have to teach from the law and the prophets, if they ever teach the laws are not for today or that they have been nailed to the cross, we’re dealing with a servant of the adversary.

The covenant was given to Yisrael, the Hebrew people, and we can partake of it if we’re not in the bloodline by becoming sons by adoption. We do this by entering the covenant through purification in the name of Yahshua the anointed, then upholding all the laws and precepts set forth by the Most High.

    of whom are the fathers, and from whom is the Anointed as concerning the flesh, who is over all, Elohim, blessed forever. Amein. But it is not as though the word of Elohim has come to nothing. FOR THEY ARE NOT ALL YISRA’EL, THAT ARE OF YISRA’EL. (Romans 9:5-6 RNEB)

This is referring to spiritual Yisrael, those who chose to enter the covenant through purification. Sha’ul himself appointed Titus, a gentile as an overseer and teacher. So inasmuch as we are adopted within the divine order and have a full understanding of YAH’s code of ethics, laws, and precepts we can be called to teach his word.

    Indeed you bear the name of a Hebrew, and rest on the law, and glory in Elohim, (Romans 2:17 RNEB)

To boast of Elohim you need to know him, to know him you need to have knowledge and understanding of the first five books of the bible and find your assurance in the law.

    and know his will, and approve the things that are excellent, BEING INSTRUCTED OUT OF THE TORAH, and are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babies, HAVING IN THE LAW THE FORM OF KNOWLEDGE AND OF THE TRUTH. (Romans 2:18-20 RNEB)

To know the will of Elohim we have to be instructed out of the law, and to be a guide and teacher of babes we must have a knowledge and understanding of the truth of the law. These are new testament writings, how are they so readily overlooked by Christendom?

    But the priests the Levites, the sons of Tzadok, who kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Yisra’el went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister to me; and they shall stand before me to offer to me the fat and the blood, says YAH Elohim: (Ezekiel 44:15 RNEB)
    They shall teach my people the difference between the holy and the common, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. (Ezekiel 44:23 RNEB)

We cannot name one religious body outside the Hebraic culture, which are the practitioners and teachers of the Sinaitic arts, that teach the difference between the holy and unholy, the clean and unclean. Christendom says this has been fulfilled in the blood of Christ, it has been nailed to the cross in there eyes. They are the largest group of people in the world claiming to be following an ecclesiastical mandate, but they don’t realize there walking in lawlessness, by choosing to follow the traditions of their forefathers.

    In a controversy they shall stand to judge; according to my ordinances shall they judge it: and THEY SHALL KEEP MY LAWS AND MY STATUTES IN ALL MY APPOINTED FEASTS; AND THEY SHALL MAKE MY SABBATHS HOLY. (Ezekiel 44:24 RNEB)

Let’s look at the other side now, we should all see where a teacher of YAH comes from and that he holds true to the laws of Elohim, it’s the only thing that he can teach. His entire discourse, no matter what the topic will always be rooted in the law and the prophets.

The Adversaries Servant

    The priests didn’t say, Where is YAH? and those who handle the law didn’t know me: the rulers also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Ba`al, and walked after things that do not profit. (Jeremiah 2:8 RNEB)

Ba`al in english means Lord.

This verse in our time could be read: Where is YAH? All your songs are about Jesus, and they that handle the law knew me not, the pastors transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by the Lord, and walked after things that do not profit.

    The word of YAH came to me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Yisra’el, prophesy, and tell them, even to the shepherds, Thus says YAH Elohim: Woe to the shepherds of Yisra’el WHO FEED THEMSELVES! SHOULDN’T THE SHEPHERDS FEED THE SHEEP? You eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill the fatlings; but you don’t feed the sheep. You haven’t strengthened the diseased, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought back that which was driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with rigor have you ruled over them. They were scattered, because there was no shepherd; and they became food to all the animals of the field, and were scattered. (Ezekiel 34:1-5 RNEB)

They had moved off in different directions because there were no teachers, they didn’t know what to do. They were being devoured by the beliefs of the surrounding nations that were serving false elohim’s.

    My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill: yes, my sheep were scattered on all the surface of the earth; and there was none who searched or sought. Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of YAH: As I live, says YAH Elohim, surely because my sheep became a prey, and my sheep became food to all the animals of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my sheep, BUT THE SHEPHERDS FED THEMSELVES, AND DIDN’T FEED MY SHEEP; (Ezekiel 34:6-8 RNEB)

The adversaries messengers seduced the people, but never fed them, they fleeced there flock, today’s followers thank them for it. Anyone not teaching from the law and the prophets is a false prophet and is not a teacher of Elohim.

    therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of YAH: Thus says YAH Elohim: Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my sheep at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the sheep; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; and I will deliver my sheep from their mouth, that they may not be food for them. For thus says YAH Elohim: Behold, I myself, even I, will search for my sheep, and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered abroad, so will I seek out my sheep; and I will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Yisra’el, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture; and on the mountains of the height of Yisra’el shall their fold be: there shall they lie down in a good fold; and on fat pasture shall they feed on the mountains of Yisra’el. I MYSELF WILL BE THE SHEPHERD OF MY SHEEP, AND I WILL CAUSE THEM TO LIE DOWN, SAYS YAH ELOHIM. I WILL SEEK THAT WHICH WAS LOST, AND WILL BRING BACK THAT WHICH WAS DRIVEN AWAY, AND WILL BIND UP THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN, AND WILL STRENGTHEN THAT WHICH WAS SICK: BUT THE FAT AND THE STRONG I WILL DESTROY; I WILL FEED THEM IN JUSTICE. (Ezekiel 34:9-16 RNEB)
    For thus says YAH of Armies, the Elohim of Yisra’el: Don’t let your prophets who are in the midst of you, and your diviners, deceive you; neither listen you to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. FOR THEY PROPHESY FALSELY TO YOU IN MY NAME: I HAVE NOT SENT THEM, SAYS YAH. (Jeremiah 29:8-9 RNEB)

The false teachers are having false dreams, visions, and revelations, they are openly deceiving us! The purpose of this study is so we can know the mark of a false teacher. Don’t be fooled by the counterfeit signs, these are being done to tantalize and entertain as forms of seduction.

    But false prophets also arose among the people, as false teachers will also be among you, WHO WILL SECRETLY BRING IN DESTRUCTIVE HERESIES, DENYING EVEN THE MASTER WHO BOUGHT THEM, BRINGING ON THEMSELVES SWIFT DESTRUCTION. MANY WILL FOLLOW THEIR IMMORAL WAYS, AND AS A RESULT, THE WAY OF THE TRUTH WILL BE MALIGNED. IN COVETOUSNESS THEY WILL EXPLOIT YOU WITH DECEPTIVE WORDS: whose sentence now from of old doesn’t linger, and their destruction will not slumber. (2 Peter 2:1-3 RNEB)

Peter said it all, they shall use us for gain, they shall teach fabricated stories and heresies, the way of truth will be spoken of as evil. When we’re told the law has passed away, the truth is being spoken of as evil. How many of the teachings in many religious bodies are designed to get us to give money? How many times have scriptures been twisted? If your not seeing it, it’s only because you have been blinded by their deceptions.

    for both prophet and Priest are profane; yes, in my house have I found their wickedness, says YAH. (Jeremiah 23:11 RNEB)
    I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied by Ba`al [the lord], and caused my people Yisra’el to err. (Jeremiah 23:13 RNEB)

The religious leaders caused people to err. Remember Ba`al means the Lord, the prophets were prophesying by the lord, isn’t this a common term and practice in today’s church?

    In the prophets of Yerushalayim also I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies; and they strengthen the hands of evil-doers, so that none does return from his wickedness: they are all of them become to me as Sedom, and the inhabitants of it as `Amorah. (Jeremiah 23:14 RNEB)
    Thus says YAH of Armies, Don’t listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you: they teach you vanity; they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of YAH. (Jeremiah 23:16 RNEB)

There is no doctrine being taught, the people are being led astray by false prophets. These are men who teach and speak there own ideas, furthering there own agenda, ultimately only exalting themselves. Don’t be fooled, what they do will not be very obvious, false teachings are the norm, sound doctrine has little or no voice today, words have been redefined, scripture taken out of context, and often the seducers have been seduced themselves, having been taught doctrines, and given interpretations they just assume to be true.

    Therefore YAH will cut off from Yisra’el head and tail, palm branch and reed, in one day. The elder and the honorable man is the head, and the prophet who teaches lies is the tail. FOR THOSE WHO LEAD THIS PEOPLE LEAD THEM ASTRAY; AND THOSE WHO ARE LED BY THEM ARE DESTROYED. (Isaiah 9:14-16 RNEB)
    My people consult with their wooden idol, and answer to a stick of wood. INDEED THE SPIRIT OF WHORINGS HAS LED THEM ASTRAY, and they have been unfaithful to their Elohim. (Hosea 4:12 RNEB)

They committed spiritual adultery by prostituting themselves with other elohims.

    Thus says YAH: "For three transgressions of Judah, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because THEY HAVE REJECTED YAH’S LAW, AND HAVE NOT KEPT HIS STATUTES, AND THEIR LIES HAVE LED THEM ASTRAY, after which their fathers walked; (Amos 2:4 RNEB)

The lie has been taught as the truth for so long it’s being accepted as truth, and the truth has become the lie. If we put ourselves in a room with ten people claiming to follow "god," we would be hard pressed to find one that really does, however most of them will believe they do, because they have never been taught sound doctrine.

    For my people are foolish, they don’t know me; THEY ARE FOOLISH CHILDREN, AND THEY HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING; THEY ARE WISE TO DO EVIL, BUT TO DO GOOD THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE. (Jeremiah 4:22 RNEB)

This is straight to the point, the only place to get knowledge is the first five books of the bible and the books of the prophets. We have read in scripture that when there was no teacher, there was no law and the people were absent from Elohim.

One of the biggest problems we see today are theologies being developed almost exclusively from the New Testament, which is just a series of letters teaching different parts of the law from the old testament. If we don’t have a proper knowledge of the old testament there is no way someone can properly understand the new testament, Sha’ul himself said, I write to people who know the law (Romans 7:1). He said the law had dominion over man as long as he lives, this is New Testament teaching, why is it usually ignored? Most of the teachings in the Church that say the law has been done away with have been accredited to Sha’ul’s writings, but does this scripture and many of his other writings truly bear witness to these doctrines?

    the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; AND MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO: and what will you do in the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:31 RNEB)

The people loved being ruled over wrongly and receiving false prophesies.

    If a man walking in a spirit of falsehood lies: "I will prophesy to you of wine and of strong drink;" he would be the prophet of this people. (Micah 2:11 RNEB)

The people are receiving a preacher after there own heart.

    Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever. For it is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of YAH; (Isaiah 30:8-9 RNEB)

The people refused to hear the law of YAH, and they were called rebellious and liars. They had received a law that was not from YAH, and it was demonstrated by there works. This is the fruit of the adversary.

    who tell the seers, "Don’t see!" and to the prophets, "Don’t prophesy to us right things. Tell us pleasant things. Prophesy deceits. (Isaiah 30:10 RNEB)

The people were looking for false prophets and teachers. Nothing has changed today, the nations are still the same, looking for an excuse to seek after there own lusts and deceits. Sure there is often an outward appearance of morality and good works, however there is only one standard that is acceptable, the one set forth by the Most High in the first five books of the bible.

    YAH, my strength, and my stronghold, and my refuge in the day of affliction, to you shall the nations come from the ends of the earth, and shall say, OUR FATHERS HAVE INHERITED NOTHING BUT LIES, [EVEN] VANITY AND THINGS IN WHICH THERE IS NO PROFIT. (Jeremiah 16:19 RNEB)

Many people go to church, just to be lied to and receive pagan traditions, such as Christmas, Crosses, Easter, and Sunday worship. These things and many others have been adopted into the church system, what they teach has no value if your seeking eternal life and trying to walk in righteousness.

    "Because you have said, ’We have made a covenant with death, and with grave are we in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it won’t come to us; FOR WE HAVE MADE LIES OUR REFUGE, AND WE HAVE HIDDEN OURSELVES UNDER FALSEHOOD.’" (Isaiah 28:15 RNEB)

Most people don’t want the truth and that’s why scripture says only a remnant will endure to the end. Wide is the gate that leads to destruction and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life and few there be that find it. One of the major reasons for this is people won’t let go of their traditions, they are willing to hold onto them till death.

    But I have this against you, that you tolerate your woman, Izevel, who calls herself a prophetess. SHE TEACHES AND SEDUCES MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT SEXUAL IMMORALITY, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED TO IDOLS. (Revelation 2:20 RNEB)

The woman Izebel represents pagan religion.

    But I am afraid that somehow, as the serpent deceived Chavah in his craftiness, so your minds might be corrupted from the simplicity that is in the Anointed. FOR IF HE WHO COMES PREACHES ANOTHER YAHSHUA, WHOM WE DID NOT PREACH, OR IF YOU RECEIVE A DIFFERENT SPIRIT, WHICH YOU DID NOT RECEIVE, OR A DIFFERENT "GOOD NEWS", WHICH YOU DID NOT ACCEPT, YOU PUT UP WITH THAT WELL ENOUGH. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4 RNEB)
    For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as the Anointed’s apostles. And no wonder, for even Satan masquerades as an angel of light. IT IS NO GREAT THING THEREFORE IF HIS SERVANTS ALSO MASQUERADE AS SERVANTS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHOSE END WILL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 RNEB)

Sha’ul is telling us how to identify false teachers, and how they operate.

    You are of your father, the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44 RNEB)

The truth according to scripture is the law, Helel (Satan) is a law breaker. Anyone that does not follow the law is a child of Helel, and his ministers are teachers of lawlessness.

    Not everyone who says to me, ’Master, Master,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21 RNEB)

The only two religious bodies claiming to use the scriptures as the foundation of their beliefs that would be saying Master, Master as it’s related to Yahshua are acknowledged Hebrew Yisraelite’s of the Messianic order and Christians.

    Many will tell me in that day, ’Master, Master, didn’t we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?’ Then I will tell them, ’I NEVER KNEW YOU. DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO WORK LAWLESSNESS.’ (Matthew 7:22-23 RNEB)

He is telling anyone that does not practice the law to depart from him. Christians are the only ones that claim to be following Elohim's word but teach and promote lawlessness.

Summing Up

The reason we are able to sit before, identify, classify, and qualify a teacher of Elohim as opposed to a teacher of Helel is because YAH gave us a process that has not changed from the beginning to the end. We started out with Elohim saying to Moshe, teach my children my commandments, then we go through all the prophets, being very specific, such as Isaiah saying seal the law among my disciples, to the law and the prophets, and if they speak not according to this word there is no truth in them. The priests lips must keep knowledge and the people should seek the law at his mouth. The entire old testament spoke of this, and then we end this study where Yahshua said to all the people speaking in tongues, doing miracles, and casting out demons, depart from me. This happened because they were lawless and never knew the Messiah, their father was Helel, the Devil, and sadly these people didn’t know who they really served.
