Doing Deuteronomy

"Doing Deuteronomy" is the title of one of the chapters in my book, "Un-coloring Race"

I was inspired to write this chapter after reading Chapter 28 in the book of Deuteronomy. This particular chapter speaks of the blessings and the curses. It occurred to me that Moses is soon to complete a daunting task. He is speaking to those who will cross over the Jordan river with Joshua. He is summarizing the rules that were set before the nation of Israel. The "Nation of Israel" was many people, many races. The children of the sons of Jacob had become a nation nearly 500 hundred years after the birth of Reuben (The first born son of Jacob (Israel) and Leah. Moses was leading most of their descendants. The lion of the Tribe of Judah was being readied for his lineage and birth.

Sadly, (Based on four years of sharing this information) many Christians do not know this story or how significant the birth of the Nation of Israel was from the sons of Jacob. [If you do not know the hundreds, if not thousands of things revealed scripturally about Jesus (Yeshua) from these 13 kids (Dinah) was the only daughter, than I would suggest to you that you are missing most of the reason the bible was written. Your biblical understanding fits on my finger nail in comparison. I say this as a matter of fact, not to offend]

The birth order, lives and choices these kids made, who they married, how they lived all reveal Messiah, certainly the brilliance of how the Living Word is written continues unfolding.

The bible is not just a story or series of stories. It is alive, a living revelation written in a manner that is simply miraculous! You will see that the first five book relate to the five loaves presented in the Gospels. You will see that the two fish represent the two kingdoms or life. You will see how Phineas is the living repetition of the story of Jesus (Yeshua) Did you know that Daniel's experience mirrors Jesus' (Yeshua's) experience before the San Hedrin? How about the cup bearer and the baker in the story of Joseph...The bread was broken (The baker died) while the cup bearer lived (Life is in the blood.)

You will learn how Dinah's rape is prophetic concerning the rape of Israel in the last days. Her six brothers (At the time) represent the 6000 year plan of redemption.

Jonah, Esther and even Isaac are all repetitious events of Passover. I could begin writing hundreds, if not thousands of events in the bible that point to Yeshua long before the writings of Paul. Most Christians do not know the Old Testament, of this I am convinced. (I despise the term "Old Testament" and so would you if you understood how diabolical this term is!) The creator of all things who is restoring all things is not OLD or New, He is the Aleph/Tav, the beginning and the end: He is TORAH! He did not replace himself nor is he obsolete.

You begin to see how the Kingdom of Israel failed just as has every nation to follow the rules. The "Kids of the Kingdom," who were to cross the Jordan did not do what Moses was summarizing. They had all been raised in the way of Torah or God's instructions. In the Song of Moses recorded by Moses but the song was dictated by YHVH (Yeshua)

Deuteronomy 31:19-22 “Now therefore, write down this song for yourselves, and teach it to the children of Israel; put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for Me against the children of Israel. 20 When I have brought them to the land flowing with milk and honey, of which I swore to their fathers, and they have eaten and filled themselves and grown fat, then they will turn to other gods and serve them; and they will provoke Me and break My covenant. 21 Then it shall be, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song will testify against them as a witness; for it will not be forgotten in the mouths of their descendants, for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them.”
22 Therefore Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel.

In John 5:46 Jesus declares "For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me."

In Luke 24:27 "And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself."

John 1:45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."

All of these verses are written before the New Testament (Think about this for a moment friends) The New Testament did not exist when this was communicated.) Jesus (Yeshua) NEVER quoted the so called New Testament. As gently as I can say (which rarely matters) Many, many Christians do not know the scriptures that Jesus taught to everyone who he came in contact with! I am not tossing the "New Testament under the bus!" On the contrary. The New Testament is quoting the Torah on virtually every page.

Equally, the entire New Testament is confirming the rules and the Ruler!
The King of the "Kids of the Kingdom" showed to us his commandments in the flesh. [Before we go into the very kingdom that is to come.] Again, the patterns and the themes are layers deep but never ending. If you don't know how this is miraculously revealed or the "Old Testament" in particularly, the sons of Jacob, YOU CANNOT see what is happening today concerning.....ISRAEL!

The Mixed Multitude, the Mixed blood and the years of slavery in Egypt, all became Israel after the exodus [Exodus 12:38 "And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle."]

In modern Christianity we don't really understand that Israel is many, many nations. Much of the church is Israel and so many are simply clueless as to the evolution of the seed of Abraham because we don't know the Old Testament or the Tanakh. We don't know the rules or the family who was set apart to cross the Jordan.

I have written all of this to point to Deuteronomy 30:11-14 {YLT}
11`For this command which I am commanding thee to-day, it is not too wonderful for thee, nor [is] it far off.

12It is not in the heavens, -- saying, Who doth go up for us into the heavens, and doth take it for us, and doth cause us to hear it -- that we may do it.

13And it [is] not beyond the sea, -- saying, Who doth pass over for us beyond the sea, and doth take it for us, and doth cause us to hear it -- that we may do it?

14For very near unto thee is the word, in thy mouth, and in thy heart -- to do it.

The "Kids of the Kingdom" failed to keep the rules...we have all failed to "Doing Deuteronomy."

We live under the curses of Deuteronomy 28 as a result. Israel is surrounded by those who would kill her. The Church has over 36,000 interpretations. Most of these doctrines are based on New Testament teaching. To use my analogy again: We purchased a book only to begin reading the last section. In so doing we don't know the story. We know part of the ending (We see Darkly and the Jews are under a veil too!
Isaiah 46:10 "From the beginning I revealed the end. From long ago I told you things that had not yet happened, saying, "My plan will stand, and I'll do everything I intended to do."

The entire book of Revelation is explained in the book of Genesis. How many of you know this?

I challenge you all to challenge what you know. I will recommend the following 8 DVD's

Studies In Our Hebrew Roots, Volume 1-2 by Mark Biltz The cost is 50 bucks

I would also ask you to consider following along with what Mark shares (And so many others) on this link. We have a global ministry with over one million visits to our website and approximately 45 to 50,000 followers via the website. Our congregation meets in Tacoma, Washington. We have about 600 regular attendees to our Sabbath gathering on Saturday.
(The following is extracted from El Shaddai Ministries' website)
What did Yeshua think of the Torah?
We will look at verses in three key chapters of the Gospels seeing that Yeshua taught that the Torah was to
be carried and taught wherever the disciples went. It was the document teaching the redeemed how to
walk in righteousness.

Matt 5 / Matt 28 / Luke 24
Our purpose is to show that:

• Yeshua came to properly interpret Torah not replace it.
• Yeshua instructed His disciples to teach Torah to their students
• Yeshua set the interpretative principle when He said the Torah is all
about Himself.

I hope to enlighten you not push you away. To my Christian brothers and sisters: Please consider what you don't know as a direct result of the 36,000 doctrines that do not teach what the TORAH is. To my Jewish Brothers and sisters: Please look again at why Hashem had your Jewish brethren write the Brit Chadasha.

Shalom, Shalom
