The Purpose Of The (Torah) Law!


   

The Law Was An Integrity Test!

A father leaves a valuable thing -- say a $100 bill -- in a place that makes it appear as if he simply dropped it, but where his son will eventually find it. The lesson is to see what his son will do, once he comes across it. Will he pocket it and keep quiet about it? Or will he return it to the father? It is not that the father needs the $100; he spends more than that on his son, and if his son asked for a $100 he would give it to him. This is a test to see what he will do with it, unsupervised; it is an integrity test (Luke 16 summarized): We are being tested. Why? To test integrity!
The reason for Torah instruction (often mistranslated as law, a human concept of absolutes), was to guide the thoughts and actions of the human creation; proverbially, to tame the savage. Thus, laws, ordinances, oaths, covenants, rules, decrees, statutes, and commandments, which were first revealed to humanity, by YHVH, via the Tanakh, but were later exploited by the anti-Messianic religious authoritarians to control the acts of the Faithless-Loveless masses.
The Law or Torah was impressed upon our species, by The Inspirer (Ruach HaKodesh), and then later, transmuted (albeit poorly) into secular written law, so that people could be shamed, coerced, penalized, fined, or even physically forced into doing, that which YHVH-Love would compel them to do, on their own, intrinsically and without even being told to do so. The Indwelling Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) constrains us from being or thinking or acting in any way that does not mirror Messiah Yeshua (2Co 5).
For, brethren, you have been called unto liberty; only, do not use liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by Love serve one another. For all the Torah is fulfilled in one word, even in this: 'You shall Love your neighbor as yourself!' But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you be not consumed one of another. This I say then; walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary, the one to the other, so that you cannot do the things that you would. But if you are led of the Spirit, you are not under the Torah.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, sedition, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, and reveling, and such like, of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they that do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of YHVH. But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, then joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance, against such there is no law. (Gal 5:13-23)
As a Messianic disciple, I would rather be killed (yea, crucified) than to knowingly act in any state or way that is not YHVH-Love centered; that is, the one and only universal and eternally valid Law: The Law of Love! I do not need some hell-destined human to tell me how to live or behave or think; indeed (and conversely), it is our duty as Messianic disciples, to be living out Messianic Love, in lifestyle, and also to be teaching the (potentially) hell-destined masses, how to live and think and act (John 3:19-21; 16:7-11; Eph 5:8-13, 14-17; 1Ti 1:8-11; 2Ti 4:1-5).
