Torah Worship and the Jewish Curse
Torah’s primary relevance in life and reality and eternity, other than its creation narrative, is the moral aspects of its law which is simply a codification and reiteration of the moral law extant from the creation of the angels as an arbiter of free will (Romans 2:14-15). Torah worship is death in Hell as the Torah defines our sin, our culpability before God, but provides NO atonement (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16).
Judaism – a religion of hopelessness
Torah worship is the Jewish Curse of hopelessness as Torah has become a religious icon of Judaism – a religion of self-righteousness through works of the Law (Galatians 2:16; Romans 10). Jesus, and only Jesus as our God, fulfilled the righteous mandates of the Torah for us and offers us His righteousness in exchange for our sin IF we place our faith in Him as our Lord who died for us (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Our HOPE is in Jesus, not the Torah Law,
Jesus is God, Jesus is Elohim our Creator (John 1; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1; Philippians 2) and the New Covenant, as established in Messiah’s blood (Matthew 26:28), is the only Path to life in Eternity (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
The Old Covenant – based in the Torah, was faulty (Hebrews 8:7) as it only defined our sin but provided no atonement (Romans 3:20); therefore, the Torah is a curse to anyone seeking righteousness through its mandates (Galatians 3:10) as the Law requires absolute perfection (James 2:10) and human kind is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 3:23); therefore, again, Torah becomes a curse to those seeking life in eternity through its mandates apart from faith in Jesus as Lord (Galatians 3:10).
Your only HOPE,
Your ONLY HOPE for life through the forgiveness of sin is faith-trust-belief-the “new birth” in Jesus Christ as your Messiah who died for you (John 3) and receive the imputation of Messiah’s righteousness imputed into your life by faith and thereby receive the covenant promise of forgiveness (Hebrews 8:12) through the establishment of covenant relationship guaranteed by the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:13-14).
A sincere warning,
If you trust in anyone or anything other than Jesus Christ for life in Eternity…you will perish in your sin and perish in the “second death” in Perdition (John 8:24; Revelation 20:11-15). If you deny the Son, you do not have the Father and you do not have life (1 John 2:23).
It is written,
10 For all who are of works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all the things written in the book of the Law, to do them.” Galatians 3:10 (NASB)
