Mind control and fear

Modern media have made it possible for us to be “involved” in multiple wars, while at the same time know of every brutal murder, robbery or shooting that has taken place and in every graphic detail. The question is, do we really have to know so much detail? What purpose does it serve? What is the agenda behind this? The other question is: how much of this is really true and how much is manipulated? Then you have all the conspiracy theories on the internet…

We are influenced by all this without realizing it. We are willingly submitting to whatever agenda is promoted. Fear is often used as a means to control. How are we to deal with this? We have studied the Scriptures to find out how we are to deal with this and share our findings in this article. May it bless and help you!

Should we do the commandments, if we can’t do it all properly?

It is almost the seventh Biblical month, and the fall feasts are just around the corner. YHVH gave us these feasts as celebrations, but also as teaching aids to learn more about Him and His Kingdom. As the feasts draw near, we need to look into what YHVH requires of us, because we want to please Him. This sometimes leads to discouragement, because we can’t keep all the commandments due to the absence of a Temple. Some people even teach that we, in the diaspora, are not to celebrate the feasts at all because we don’t live in the land. This mindset affects other areas as well, and we have been asked if we are to do the commandments at all seeing that we can’t do it all properly.

We shall first seek to find proof that we are to keep the commandments wherever we are and then see if we can find out to what an extend we are to do it.

The Law of Moses is the Law of YHVH!

The phrase “the Law of Moses” is used in Scripture quite a few times, but does this phrase mean that it carries with it only the authority of Moses, and can therefor be abolished? In order to answer this question, we need to determine what is contained in the Law of Moses and who gave these commandments. When we know this, it would be easier for us to understand how much weight the law of Moses carries. We will also study to see how Y’shua perceived the law of Moses and what He taught about it.

What if we can prove to you from Scripture that the law of Moses is the law of YHVH? Would that convince you that these instructions are eternal? Also, what would you, as Y’shua’s disciple do it you knew He not only kept, but also taught the Law of Moses?

Tefillin – To use or not to use?

Tefillin

After our previous article on prayer, we have done some study on the traditions and customs that surround prayer. One of the topics that have come up in our discussions about prayer, is the use of tefillin or phylacteries. People wonder if the Jewish interpretation of Scripture is valid. Should we interpret the verses literally as they do? Should we also be using these black boxes when we pray? Or, did the church fathers get it right when they said this is not to be taken literally? We investigate what Scripture really says to see if we can come to a conclusion.
