A Missing Letter From Rabbi Paul:

 

Dear Brothers & Sisters who obey the institution instead of heeding The Words of God. Do you worship things made with hands? Do you obey the clay over the potter, or the spokesman and not the author? Surely you do, for I hear you quote and idolize the controversial and difficult things that I say instead of following Messiah!

 

Howbeit you say that I, Paul, claimed you could eat anything, keep Sunday Worship, and disregard Gods Holy and Eternal Feasts, quoting ‘Gods Laws were nailed to the cross’ when I said, “Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid” Romans 6:15. Or “Do we then nullify the Law, the Torah, through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Torah” Romans 3:31. “What matters is the keeping of the commandments of God” 1 Corinthians 7:19. So, “Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God (The Torah): and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation” Romans 13:2.

 

“I thank Christ our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 1 Timothy 1:12-13. “Christ came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief” 1 Timothy 1:15.

 

How on earth did you get the understanding from my letter, written in Acts 10, that anything is allowed to eat by God when I clearly stated that “God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean” Acts 10:28, having nothing whatsoever to do with food?

 

How is it that you continue to preach that I am responsible for your Sunday Worship, quoting ‘Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind of esteeming a day’ Romans 14:5, ‘Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years’ Galatians 4:9-10, and ‘Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days’ Colossians 2:16. You have clearly taken my teaching NOT to follow after the pagan things and ignored when I elaborated in the letters to the Hebrews [Hebrews 4:1-11] not to be like those who God first preached to that didn’t include Faith? I told you that God specified a particular day [7] and said if there were another He would have told us [8]. I said The Sabbath still remains for Gods People [9], and [10] that they should cease from their works as God did from His. Let us keep The Sabbath, being careful not to follow those who didn’t” [11]. I was extremely clear to tell you what God told me to tell you. Why do you distort what I said? “woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16

 

Observing Days? That had nothing to do with observing what God told us to obey. I was telling you about the Jews who made up their own days and called them holy, the same as you are now doing with your Christmas & Easter. Loving God and His Torah, how could I possibly tell you any different?

 

Had I known my letters would have appeared in The Bible with Gods Word I would have solicited Peter for help, as he was bold & honest enough to tell you that you should know Gods Torah before reading anything I wrote as I am very difficult to understand, even to my peers. [2 Peter 3:15-16]

 

I’m so very disappointed in you, for I told you [Acts 19:4] to follow God, not what you believe someone else is preaching. Sometimes I wish I had never written to any of you.

 

Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand Galatians 6:11, for it is of paramount importance; even eternal salvation.

 

Signed Sha’ul (Paul)
