The Necessity of Yeshua as Lord?
The Torah is NOTHING novel or NEW as the moral law has been extant from the creation of the angels as the moral law of God is the arbiter of free will.The Torah was given to a SPECIFIC people group set-apart beginning with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, as these people were to be holy before God as God is Holy and they were to be set-apart for God’s eschatological purposes concerning the Gospel of Messiah who would enter Time through the Tribe of Judah. The Torah’s only relevance today in the New Covenant is the moral law reiterated by same and ultimately infused within the New Covenant through Messiah’s Commandments.
The Torah ONLY defined our sin but provided no atonement (Romans 3:20); The Torah only curses the one seeking righteousness through Law (Galatians 3:10; Deuteronomy 27:26). Faith-trusting in Yeshua for the forgiveness of sin is mankind’s only Hope as only the shedding of blood provides atonement (Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22; Hebrews 10; Genesis 3:21). We know that the blood of animals could not atone for sin (Hebrews 10:4); therefore, the Father prepared a body, the Lamb of God, to atone for your sin (John 1:29) i.e. Yeshua our Messiah.
Yeshua is the fulfillment of the prophecy provided by Elohim in Genesis 3:21 and it is only by faith in the shed blood of Yeshua that one enters into covenant relationship with the Father and receives the indwelling Holy Spirit as Guarantor of that relationship, forever (John 3:16-18; Ephesians 1:13-14). It is the one who believes in Yeshua as Lord that is justified before the Father, NOT the one who works in self-righteousness through Law.
