The Torah Abides: GALATIANS According to the Law of YAH

I didn’t think it would come to this. You found me out. I was caught. And it’s true—all of it. I read from the Torah. I read it at work. I read it in my spare time. I read it early in the morning, late at night, even on the weekends. There were rumors afloat but now you’ve heard it here, straight from the horse’s mouth. The Torah derives from heaven, and I want to conform my life, and in fact my very soul, to it. To quote from a literary classic of old.

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the Torah of YAHAUAHA; and in his Torah he meditates day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.

4 The wicked are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For YAHAUAHA knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Tehilliym (Psalm) 1

And then one day I was sitting there minding my own business, reading a Psalm of David, playing a game of Russian roulette with theology, and it occurred to me. The man who delights in the Torah of YAHAUAHA, meditating upon it day and night, is blessed. That man is blessed. Blessed, I tell you. That’s what I wanted to be. Blessed.

I will ask. Is the Bible True? The Bible of course is the Testimony of YAHAUAHA Alahayam. Alahayam is the Paleo-Hebrew word for God. There are many Alahayam to choose from. I’ll speak for myself, I choose the Alahayam of the Bible. Maybe the better question is, Is the Testimony of YAHAUAHA Alahayam trustworthy and True? That man who meditates upon the Torah of YAHAUAHA day and night will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth fruit in his season, prospering at whatsoever he does. Blessed. But for the wicked, those who reject the Torah, are not so. In the judgement, they are like the chaff which the wind blows away.

Slightly rearranging the question for a modern audience, specifically, a Bible audience: Is the Testimony of YAHAUAHA Alahayam eternal and still applicable for our lives today, or have his words been done away with? Is the man who meditates upon the Torah day and night still blessed? Is it a failed promise? Has YAHAUAHA changed his mind? Is that man now a heretic? Or asked in yet another more straightforward way, Are we altogether serving another Alahayam in our rejection of the Torah?

Come to think of it, what right does any man have to show up after Mashiach’s ascension simply to tell everyone he has a landline phone with heaven and the Torah has been done away with? Mm-hmm, you know who I’m talking about. I’m talking about Pa’al but also the “But Pa’al!” people. Whenever the Torah confronts us, there’s always that one person in the room attempting to handicap a perfectly righteous Bible study discussion, “But Paul!” Yeah, they’re everywhere. Per chance you’ve heard of the Torah terrorists. Well, these are the Torahless terrorists, and they’re everywhere.

Really, it’s the question of the hour. Did Pa’al do away with the Torah or didn’t he, because YAHAUAHA sure as She’ol didn’t. That’s a problem. And so, I hereby turn my investigation to Galatiym, Pa’al’s epistle to the Galatians, seeking to resolve the issue.
