COPY YOUR TORAH
COPY YOUR TORAH

Yehowah thinks very highly of his Word, the Torah, the Tanach, the Holy Bible, both the First and New Covenant. He has submitted himself to his own word as the authority over his own life.
Psalm 138:2, “I will bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your covenant faithfulness and for your trustworthiness. You have magnified your name and your word above everything else.”
Yehowah has done this magnifying, or exalting, of his word. Calling on his name can save you. Use his word to guide your life. It is the wisdom that you need. It is truth.
Yeshua is the King of kings and Lord of lords, but he has made us a kingdom of priests, Revelation 1:5-6, “and from Yeshua Messiah, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead ones, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has washed us from our sins by his blood, 6he has made us a kingdom and priests for Yehowah his Father, to him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”
Revelation 5:10, “You made them a kingdom and priests to serve Yehowah, and they will reign on the earth.”
Daniel 7:18, “But the set-apart people of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and they will possess it forever and ever.”
Luke 12:31-32, “But seek Yehowah’s kingdom, and these things will be added to you.32Do not fear, little flock, because your Father is very pleased to give you the kingdom.”
Yeshua is High Priest, after the order of Melchizedek, and King of kings. He is making us just like himself. We are kings and priests under Yeshua.
Revelation 17:14, “They will wage war against the Lamb. But the Lamb will conquer them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and with him are the called ones, the chosen ones, and the faithful ones.”
Revelation 19:16, “He has a name written on his robe and on his thigh: “King of kings and Lord of lords.”” Once Yeshua destroys the wicked earthly kings, what kings are left for him to be King over? Us, his children who should be growing up into kings right now. So stop playing church and start growing into your new role as king under Yeshua.
Revelation 20:4d, “They came to life, and they reigned with Messiah for a thousand years.”
Revelation 20:6, “Blessed and holy is anyone who takes part in the first resurrection! Over these the second death has no power. They will be priests of Yehowah and of Messiah and will reign with him for a thousand years.”
The coming Kingdom of Messiah Yeshua will be similar to the priestly kingdom of Melchizedek. Yeshua will be above all, ruling and reigning over the whole universe as our High Priest and King, and we will reign as his subordinate kings and priests, here on this earth for 1,000 years. This is the Gospel of the Kingdom that Yeshua spoke of in his Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24:14, “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the ethnicities. Then the end will come.”
Yeshua came to preach the Gospel of the kingdom of Yehowah, not just to save people. Luke 4:43, “But he said to them, “I must also preach the gospel about the kingdom of Yehowah to many other cities, because this is the reason I was sent here.”” Luke 8:1a, “It happened soon afterward that Yeshua began traveling around to different cities and villages, preaching and proclaiming the gospel about the kingdom of Yehowah.”
The gospel of salvation issue that you have to settle today is, are you in or are you out? If you want in to Yehowah’s kingdom, you must repent of your sins today and get saved today, before it’s too late. When Yeshua arrives back here on earth, it will be too late to get in to the kingdom. Your choice must be made today, before the Yeshua Advent 2.0. Yehowah’s kingdom is coming from Heaven to earth, so you must decide on this side of the Yeshua Advent 2.0. You cannot wait until Yeshua arrives, for that will be too late, the division between who is in and who is out will have already been made. You can check that out for yourself in Revelation 14:14-20, Matthew 25:31-46, and Revelation 19:11-21.
When Yeshua comes back, he’s coming to destroy the wicked and to set up his righteous Kingdom on earth for 1,000 years. You must decide today whether or not you will be with him or against him. Those who choose the Mark of the Beast will have chosen against Yeshua. That will be an eternally fatal mistake. Turn from your selfishness today, turn from your wickedness today, turn from your sin today and receive Yeshua HaMashiach into your life as your Savior and Lord.
Yehowah’s calendar and clock are counting down day by day, minute by minute, second by second. When that calendar and clock finish counting down to the moment when Yeshua is commanded by the Father to return to earth, it’s too late for you lost sinners. The saved will go up into the Kingdom of Yehowah in the resurrection and rapture, the lost sinners will go down to judgment and the Lake of Fire. It will only take a twinkling of an eye for the reaper angels to do their reaping thing on that day, in that nano-second of time. You need to decide for Yeshua today, right now, while you still have breath and the ability to make your choice for Yehowah’s kingdom, or for the Devil’s judgment.
Now that we have that settled, let me tell you why I have made my own copy of the Word of Yehowah called the “Son Of Man Bible”. Let’s read Deuteronomy 17:14-20, “When you have come to the land that Yehowah your Divine One gives you, and when you take possession of it and begin to live in it, and then you say, ‘I will set a king over myself, like all the ethnicities that are round about me,’15then you must surely set as king over yourself someone whom Yehowah your Divine One will choose. You must set as king over yourself someone from among your brothers. You may not put a foreigner, who is not your brother, over yourself. 16But he must not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt so that he may multiply horses, for Yehowah had said to you, ‘You will never return that way again.’17He must not take many wives for himself, so that his heart does not turn away. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold. 18When he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he must write for himself in a Scroll a copy of this Torah, from the Torah that is before the priests, who are Levites. 19The Scroll must be with him, and he must read in it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to honor Yehowah his Divine One, so as to keep all the words of this Torah and these statutes, to observe them. 20He must do this so that his heart is not lifted up above his brothers, and so that he does not turn away from the commandments, to the right hand or to the left; for the purpose that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, among Israel.”
Yehowah chooses those who choose him, that’s how he operates. The kings that Yehowah will set up in his kingdom are those who have chosen to follow him, to be his disciples. We will receive positions under Yeshua, our King of kings. When he sets you up as a king under Yeshua, he wants you to focus on him and his word. He doesn’t want you to love your armed forces more than him. He doesn’t want you to love your wife or children, or pets, more than him. He doesn’t want you to love your wealth more than him or his word. He wants you to love him and love his word more than anything else in his kingdom. He wants you to have your own copy of the Torah, or Holy Scriptures. We live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yehowah.
It is a humbling experience to make your own copy of Yehowah’s word. He just stated it’s to keep you from arrogance and pride. It is the ultimate breaking experience. Go ahead and begin making your own copy of Yehowah’s word. People will call you a blasphemer, arrogant, proud, thinking you can edit Yehowah’s word. How dare you? You actually will learn to fear Yehowah like never before. What if I screw up and make a mistake? I could be damned for all eternity! But Yehowah wants you to do it. Yehowah commands his kings to do it. Simply obey him. Moses simply obeyed Yehowah, Deuteronomy 31:9, “Moses wrote this Torah and gave it out to the priests, the sons of Levi, who carried the Ark of the Covenant of Yehowah; he also gave copies of it to all the elders of Israel.” Also, in Deuteronomy 27:1-8, “… 3You must write on them all the words of this Torah when you have passed over; … 8You will write on the stones all the words of this Torah very plainly.”
One more verse, maybe not directly related to this study, but I find it beautiful nonetheless, Hosea 8:12, “I could write down my Torah for them ten thousand times, but they would view it as something strange to them.” I hope he is not talking about you and me!!
Well, when I was in the working world, I did not have time to copy the Torah for myself, I never had enough time to study as much as I wanted to, and there certainly was not an easy way to copy a text back in the day. Who wanted to hand write or type the Holy Bible on a typewriter? But as soon as I retired, I began looking for an electronic copy of the Bible and finally found one over at www.door43.org.
