Okay, so now we have someone espousing another false teaching that some are swallowing, hook, line and sinker. Greg Widener insists he has “Biblical Proof that the Law was Nailed to the Cross.”
First, what was "nailed to the cross" was our past SINS, not God's Torah/Divine Instructions in Righteousness! He nailed to the cross our certificate of debt for breaking the Law.
Secondly, Y'shua's human FLESH was "nailed to the cross": NOT "The Word" (John 1:1, 14) nor YHWH's "arm" (Isaiah 53:1), nor any part of YHWH's TORAH!
YHWH's "Word"/His Torah never once "died" - not even for a nanosecond. His human Messiah's FLESH died. The essence of Y'shua never died, and that is what "rose from the dead." Human, sinful flesh doesn't get to enter YHWH's Presence....
So, NO, "the law" (an erroneous term referring to TORAH) was NEVER "nailed to the cross!" Yes, Y’shua said he was “the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6), but NONE of those things “died” when his FLESH was “crucified.” Isaiah 40:8 says: “Grass shall wither, the flower shall fade, but the word of our ELOHIM stands forever. (See 1 Peter 1:24-25.)
FOREVER didn't end the day Y'shua was crucified! Therefore, it is preposterous to think that TORAH "died" for three days and then rose again, because it would mean that the world was completely without YHWH and His Divine Rules for three days!
Please re-read my last paragraph so you can comprehend the gravity of what Mr. Widener is teaching.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: It’s confusing enough that many are under the erroneous impression that “God Himself died for us. They never stop to think, “Can GOD be born or die?” Y’shua was YHWH’s MESSIAH who was 100 human. He had a divine Nature because he was the Son of God, but YHWH Himself didn’t “die on the cross"; that would have been IMPOSSIBLE! Yeshua came to proclaim the Kingdom and do everything His Father commanded! (For scripture references and clarity, please read my article on this: https://therefinersfire.org/proclaiming_torah.htm
Carmen, sometimes my head explodes with hearing all these ridiculous stories. I won't call them teachings because the people that espouse them are so very ignorant for one, and arrogant for two. Sad thing is when I hear people regurgitating this to others and it spreads through out the body of believers like a virus. I honestly don't know how you keep your own head on straight.ReplyDelete
Chag Sameach Pesach!
Joan, honestly, there are days I just want to quit preaching and get a life, LOL! But then, the Ruach reminds me that it's not "about me" and I pick myself up and continue.Delete
It's hard sometimes, because - like you said - your head can explode over all the various "teachings" by people who don't know Scripture. It's not easy, and Scripture even tells us it wouldn't be.
Thanks for posting, sis!
