Connecting Scripture verses together can be very helpful in revealing the big picture. There is, however, also a danger in "cherry picking" verses and stringing them together in order to support a particular theological position/doctrine which may not be true. That is the last thing that I want to do! I have chosen several passages of Scripture, taken from the Torah, Psalms, Proverbs, and the New Testament, with the desire and hope that it will reflect the consistency of the Father's Word as well as His authority. Because I believe that His Word speaks clearly, I will add no personal thoughts. I know at first glance the amount of verses shared here may seem overwhelming, however, it is my prayer that you, Reader, will prayerfully take the time to read them and reflect. I also pray that as you do, the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth, and bring to your remembrance other applicable passages. Shalom.
And the LORD said to Moses, “See, I am coming to you in the thick cloud, so that the people hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.”
And now, O Israel, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live, and shall go in and possess the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.
Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of the LORD your God which I am commanding you.
He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.
My son, do not forget my Torah, And let your heart watch over my commands;
For length of days and long life and peace they add to you.
This is the Moses who said to the children of Israel, ‘The LORD your God shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brothers. Him you shall hear.’
This is he who was in the assembly in the wilderness with the Messenger who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, who received the living Words to give to us,"
Then Yeshua spoke to the crowds and to His taught ones, saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on the seat of Moses.Therefore, whatever they say to you to guard, guard and do. But do not do according to their works, for they say, and do not do."
I have come in My Father’s Name and you do not receive Me, if another comes in his own name, him you would receive. How are you able to believe, when you are receiving esteem from one another, and the esteem that is from the only God you do not seek? Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, in whom you have set your expectation. For if you believed Moses, you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how shall you believe My words?
He who rejects Me, and does not receive My Words, has one who judges him: the Word that I have spoken shall judge him in the last day. Because I spoke not from Myself, but the Father who sent Me has given Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life.
Therefore, whatever I speak, as the Father has said to Me, so I speak.
Yeshua answered him, “If anyone loves Me, he shall guard My Word. And My Father shall love him, and We shall come to him and make Our stay with him. He who does not love Me does not guard My Words. And the Word which you hear is not Mine but of the Father Who sent Me."
I have given them Your Word, and the world hated them because they are not of the world,
as I am not of the world.
Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth.
John 17:14, 17
Your righteousness is righteousness forever, And Your Torah is truth.
You are near, O LORD, And all Your commands are truth.
The sum of Your word is truth, And all Your righteous right-rulings are forever.
