James 25:1 (A Jew) But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does.
Matthew 7:23 (A Jew) But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws
Proverbs 3:1 (David a Jew) My son, forget not my law; but let your heart keep my commandments:
Exodus 20:6 (Moses was a Jew) But showing love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Jesus did not fulfill the Law in the way we in Christianity have been taught...due to mistranslations. He was the goal of the Law....the PURPOSE for it [which never meant a legal set of rules but rather, God's instructions on how to over come a fallen world]...Jesus performed those instructions perfectly and he said in John 14:15 (A Jew) "If you love me keep my commandments" He also said in John 5:46 (A Jew) "For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me."

Isaiah 46:10 (A Jew)
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
I am hoping to show and to share how relevant knowing the Old Testament is. God was showing to The Jews the how he wanted the dress rehearsals of what his plan would accomplish during certain holidays...HIS holidays not Christmas and Easter his Biblical appointments or Festivals where by he was going to do certain specific things
These were never Jewish per say but always God's...He set Israel apart to be the people who were to teach us. They have lived, made mistakes, are persecuted and murdered teaching us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leviticus 23 Feasts of the LORD And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.
The Sabbath 3 ‘Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings
The Passover and Unleavened Bread 4 ‘These are the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. 5 On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the LORD’s Passover. 6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. 7 On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. 8 But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.’”
Special note: In Exodus 12 God calls Moses and Aaron out to start putting these appointed times on the Calendar, His calendar that He set apart for the Jews to follow and to teach to us......Your bible is proof that they did...teach us.see if you can see similarities between
Yom Kippur (Judgment)
Leviticus 16:1-2 NKJV
Now the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered profane fire before the LORD, and died; 2 and the LORD said to Moses: “Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat.
Revelations 15:4-8 NKJV
Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.” 5 After these things I looked, and behold,[a] the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. 6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. 7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. 8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
Aaron's two sons bought fire that did not come from the fire that God sent to ignite the alter at the Tabernacle. This act cost them their lives.
Leviticus 16:4 KJV
He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these [are] holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and [so] put them on.
Revelation 8:1-6 NKJV
1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
Revelation 11:19 AKJV
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightning, and voices, and thunder, and an earthquake, and great hail.
Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before the Lord, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil. 13 And he shall put the incense on the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the Testimony, lest he die. 14 He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.
Revelation 19:13-14 NKJV
He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean,[a] followed Him on white horses.

Revelation 19:15-18 NKJV
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great
John, in the book of Revelation is watching a temple service being conducted in the Temple of Heaven...He is watch a Biblical Festival being fulfilled...Yom Kippur, JUDGMENT
The entire book of Revelation is truly explained in the book of Genesis when you know your Hebrew Roots to God's word.
