Israel’s Children are destroyed for lack of Knowledge, why? (Hosea 4:6)
Answer: Self-righteousness through Law as opposed to faith in Yeshua. It is written concerning the error of Israel’s children and self-righteousness,
“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” Romans 10 (NKJV)
An explanation of the Jewish/Israelite error in the following comment from a child of Jacob,
“Peter says, Paul is difficult for you to understand
For it isn’t the hearers of Torah who are righteous before El’ohiym, but the doers of Torah will be justified.”
What saving knowledge is lacking in this Jewish/Israelite comment?
Herein lies the problem that leads many of Jacob’s children to die in sin (John 8:24) and ultimately die the second death in Perdition…the Jew/Israelite refuses to understand that no one “does the Torah” (Romans 3:10) as the Torah demands perfection (James 2:10; Deuteronomy 27:26) and you are a sinner (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12) dying in your sin in your own self-righteousness and lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6; John 8:24). Observance of/to the Torah does NOT establish covenant relationship with God (Romans 3:20) but ONLY by faith in Yeshua as Messiah will you be saved and THEN your observance of God’s will for your life VERIFIES your FAITH as VALID as the Spirit walks you in sanctification.
Please listen carefully that you not die in Hell…
The “doers of the word/Torah/Commandments of Yeshua” are those who have FIRST entered into covenant relationship with the Father by faith in Yeshua as Messiah believing that Yeshua died for them to pay their sin-debt (Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16-18) – THEN – subsequent to establishing covenant relationship, the Holy Spirit takes-up residence within the believer (Ephesians 1:13-14) and begins to methodically, daily, guide them in obedience to God’s will through the life-long process called “sanctification” (Galatians 5:16; John 14:26; 1 John 2:27)In fact, your works of obedience are NOTHING to God until such time you have FIRST established covenant relationship with God the Father by faith in the Son, Yeshua our Messiah (John 3:16-18; John 14:6); in fact, your works of self-righteousness are as a bloody menstrual cloth (in the Hebrew) in God’s nose (Isaiah 64:6) until you FIRST initiate covenant relationship and WALK in the Spirit in obedience and it is that OBEDIENCE SUBSEQUENT to establishing covenant relationship through Yeshua (John 14:6) that AUTHENTICATES the VALIDITY of your saving FAITH.
Your works of self-righteousness through an attempted obedience to the Law of sin and death will NEVER save anyone from death in Hell (Romans 3:20; Galatians 3:10; James 2:10; Romans 8-chapter).
