Dictionary of Hebrew terms.
Elohim.- This word in Hebrew means: The Almighty, or the Mighty one or powerful, this is the original title used in the Hebrew scriptures to refer to our maker, and this word has been wrongly translated as: (god), the word: (god) comes from German (gott), which comes from an old german dialect (guthan) and this was an idol that the Vikings used to worship, so in summary this word has pagan roots, (god) was the name of a Germanic idol, and according to the scriptures we are not to pronounce the name of any idol Exodus 23:13.
So when we refer to our maker we are to say Elohim which means the Almighty one, and is a clean word from Hebrew or YAH, this his name, also there is another variant which is: YHWH.
Any other name besides his Hebrew name or his Hebrew title, shouldn’t be pronounced at all, for example: god, all-a,dieu,dios etc, all these are names of idols, all-ah, was the name of a pagan idol that people in ancient Saudi Arabia used to worship this idol has nothing to do with the true Elohim, so when we call our maker, we are to say: Elohim or YAH OR YHWH , this is his true name.
YESHUA This is the original name of the Saviour, the Meshiach, the name: Je-sus, is a deficient translation that comes from Hellenic pagan phonetics. Many of the Greek idols had a phonetic of sus.
YOM This word means: a cycle, it can be a period of 12 hours, 24 hours, one week, one month, one year, fifty years or thousand years, so this is important info when you study prophecy, so when you read the scriptures in English and see the word: (day) understand that it does not refer just to a period of 24 hours but it has multiple meaning, on the other hand, the word(day) has also pagan roots, it comes from the word, due or deus which come from ze-us, and this was the name of an idol that the Greeks used to worship 365 days a year, and from this principle comes the word (day), but in Hebrew Yom, is a clean word which means cycle.
KADOSH . This word means: Purity, dedication, spiritual cleanness and set apart, Kadosh is a person who is set apart from the world to serve Elohim, this word has been wrongly translated as; Holy, this word come from German paganism heilig, it has to do with the sun worship, also it is translated as: Saint, this word comes from Latin, and it means: something which is dedicated to a roman temple, a similar root, is the word: sacred which means something devoted to a roman temple, all this titles are pagan, and we are to rather say Kadosh, or set apart or dedicated.

Explanation of the letters of Paul.
In all the Hebrew scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, there is not a single verse that tells us not to keep the Torah, The Law of Mount Sinai, just in the letters of Paul when one misunderstands them, one may think that the Law is no longer in force, but here we will explain all controversies regarding the letters of Paul.
Paul used to talk about three types of laws:
The Law of Mount Sinai.
The Law of Sin.
The Law of men.
Paul says in Romans 3:31: Do we nullify the Law through faith? Let it not be! on the contrary we establish the Law.
All the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation talk about keeping the Law, but Paul has been used as a escape goat for many preachers who preach against the Law, the problem is that here in Romans 3:31 Paul confesses He is for the Law, and also he is a Pharisee ardent for the Law.
Romans 7:22 says: I delight in the Law of Elohim according to the inward being, but in my members I see another law battling against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
So here we see clearly how there are different types of laws, one is the Law of Mt. Sinai, and according to Romans 3:31 this Law is forever, another law is the law of sin, and this is abolished if we believe in Yeshua, because he frees us from all sin, and the last law is the law of men, here we will see an example of this law.
In Galatians 4:8 and 4:9, says: But after you have known Elohim, and are known by him, how do you turn again to the week and poor matters to which you wish to be enslaved again, you observe days and months and seasons and years. Here many unlearned teaches have blindly assumed that Paul was talking about the Law of Mt, Sinai, but he is talking about the law of men, he is warning the Greeks to no go back to pagan rituals of Greece, like in the modern days we have: the new year, Hallowheen, independence day etc. All these are the law of men, pagan practices that society has adopted, Paul warned the Greeks not to observe pagan festivals, like in south America, people still celebrate spring and falls feasts to Indian idols.
All these religions of the Greeks Paul saw as the law of men, whomever reads the scriptures from genesis to Revelation and does the commandments, this one is in not in religion but in truth, religion is part of the law of men, rules which are not contained in the Hebrew scriptures and came to enslave men, like in Asi many people work hard to pay tithes to make golden idols, and Yeshua came to set us free from the law of sina nd the law of men in order to keep the law of Mt Sinai which is the eternal Law of Elohim.
Now we will see what Yeshua says about the Law of Mt. Sinai the Torah.
Mat 5:17 says: Do not think I came to destroy the Law or the prophets, I did not come to destroy but to complete. For truly I say to you, till heaven and the earth pass away, one J or one title shall by no means pass from the Law (Torah) till all be done.
Mat 5:19 Whoever then breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, will be called least is the reign of the Heavens, but whoever does and teaches them, will be called great in the reign of the Heavens. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.
So here we see clearly how Yeshua is encouraging us to keep the entire Law, and also he says that those who do not keep the least of the commandments will be called least in the Reign hat means, that those who will be the least in the Reign are the ones trying to keep all the commandments but failing to keep some, whereas those who do not preach them at all, will never enter the Reign, and those who keep them all will be called Great, now there is another important info here, Yeshua said that if our righteousness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, we won’t enter the Reign and we need to understand that the scribes and Pharisees where, Jew devoted to the Law who did not have Meshiach in their lives but studied the Law all day long, so how much more are we to study it and do it, since we have Meshiach in our lives.
Mat 7:21 Says: Not all who call me: Master Master! Shall enter the Reign, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven, and many shall say to me in that day, Master Master, have we not prophesied in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and done great things in your name?, and then I shall declare to them, I never knew you, depart from me lawless men.
When we study this verse in the old Greek and Aramaic, we find deeper meanings, in Greeks it says: Anomos which means, men without law without Torah, and in Aramaic it says, Beliay, people without Torah, So Yeshua is saying that the vast majority of the believers in the world, will be rejected from his reign because they do not keep the Law, and how true is this, most religions who claim to follow the Hebrew scriptures, do not keep the Law.
While in Mat 4:23, 13:54, Luk 4:16 and Mark 1:21 how Yeshua went each Shabat (Saturday) to the Synagogue to teach the law, while most preachers go to church on Sunday to teach that the law is over.
So we can see an example how Yeshua kept the law perfectly, but many people think that Paul preached against the law, but in Cor 11:1 Paul says: Follow my example as I follow Meshiach.
Romans 7:12 says: The Law is pure and beneficial, and the commandment if just a fair, in the book of acts 24:14 after the religious leaders interrogated Paul, he declared, that he believed in all the law and the prophets, here we see how he always preached in favour of the Law of Mt, Snai, and against the law of sin and the law of men.
Now let us read the book of Acts 21:20.
Here it says that many thousands of Hebrew believed in Yeshua and they have great enthusiasm and zeal for the law, and they have been informed that Paul taught contrary to the law, that they do not need circumcision any more nor the traditions, but in Acts 21:24 the leaders of the assembly in Jerusalem tell Paul to take people to the Temple to purify themselves, so that the crowds see that these accusations against Paul are false, and he kept the Law perfectly.
So Acts 21:24 tells us that Paul kept the law perfectly and all the accusations saying that he was breaking the law are false.
So if Acts 21:24 says that Paul kept the law perfectly and in Cor 11:1 Paul says: Be imitators of me as I follow Meshiach, here Paul is demolishing all myths about not keeping Torah, and he opposes all the religions of the world who do not teach the commandments and the Law.
Now we will go to study the book of Galatians, which has been used by most teachers who twisted itto mean that we are not to keep the Law.
In Galatians 5:2 says: if you become circumcised, the Meshiach is of no use to you. This verse has been used to teach that the law has expired, but if we look deeply into this verse, we see that Paul was against the circumcision of the Pharisees, and against people being forced to obey the tradition of the Pharisees and being forced to be circumcised in the way of the Pharisees, when Paul actually wated the people to be free from the Pharisees, because before they circumcised people, they forced them to deny the name of Yeshua.
So if we read Acts 16:3 we see that Paul circumcised Timothy, so this proves the Law is forever and that circumcision is beneficial to us, in Galatians 5:11 Paul confesses that he is preaching circumcision and is persecuted for doing so, so the context of the book of Galatians about a war between believers and Pharisees, the believers would circumcise people freely in love, and would teach them to keep all the Law, while the Pharisees, would charge large amounts of money to perform the circumcision, and would fore people to obey them, instead of obeying Elohim and the law, so Paul warned them! Not to get circumcised by the Pharisees, but wait and the emissaries of Yeshua would give you the true circumcision.
Galatians 3:29 says: if you are of Meshiach you are seed of Abraham and heirs to the promise. This tells us that gentiles who receive Yeshua are no longer gentiles but spiritual Hebrews and Israelites, and they have to keep the law. Cor 12:2 says: you were gentiles in the past… This verse supports the book of Galatians 3:29, because if it says: in the past you were gentiles, that means that the believers are no longer gentiles but spiritual Israelites and heirs to the promise, therefore they need to keep the law.
In Acts 28:17 Paul confesses he did nothing against the law or the tradition of the elders.
Now we will Study Acts 15:20 unlearned teachers used Acts 15:20 to justified that new believers are not to keep the Torah but, to Abstain from idolatry, from whoring from eating strangled animals and from eating blood, but people fail to read Acts 15:21 which says: For from ancient times, Moses has those who preach him in the Synagogue every shabat (Saturday)
So while Acts 15:20 teaches that new believers had only 4 rules, Acts 15:21 teaches that with these four rules they could enter the Synagogue and learn every Shabat, because without keeping these four rules new believers would not be allowed in the synagogue, so the idea was to keep these rules in the beginning and after keeping the shabat in the synagogue some months, eventually the people would keep all the law, but no one can keep it overnight. The proof that these four rules are just for the beginners is this, Acts 21 says that Paul kept all the law and Corinthians 5:7 says that Paul taught the Corinthians to keep the feast of Passover. The feast of Passover it is a symbol that people were keeping all the law.
In Acts 10:11 Simon had a Vision of the animals, and Elohim told him: Kill and eat! but Simon replied, no Master! nothing unclean has ever entered my mouth, but the voice answered, do not call unclean what Elohim has made clean!, so after this Simon did not understand the Vision but remained thinking, and latter on in Acts 10:28 Simon said: Elohim showed me not to call unclean any man, so the animals of this vision represent the different peoples of the world, it does not mean that we can eat unclean animals, for Simon said: Nothing unclean has ever entered my mouth!
In the Hebrew culture many saw the gentiles has unclean people, due to their idolatrous and sinful way of live, but Elohim showed Simon that those cleansed by the blood of Yeshua can be clean.
Now let us see 1John 5:3 says: this is the love of Elohim that we keep his commandments, and his commadments are not heavy..
1John 3:4 says: He who sins violates the law, for sin is the violation of the law (the law of mount sinai of course) .
So here John is Telling us that if we love Elohim we keep his commandments, and that if we sin we break the Law, it is clear the first believers were keeping the Law of Mt. Sinai.
Now 1John 3:21 says: All that we ask Elohim, He will give it to us, because we fulfill his commandments and do what pleases him.
1John 2:4 says: The one who says that knows him and keeps not his commands, is a liar and the truth is not in him.
In 2 Thessalonians says: The secret power of lawlessness is already at work! the greek word for lawlessness is (anomia) and it means with out law or Torah, braking the Law of Mt. Sinai. and So it happened for the next 1800 years of Christianity, people preached against the LAW.
Now let us see, what the Hebrew scriptures and the prophets say about the Law.
Leviticus 24:22 says: There is one Law for the foreigner and for the native born says Elohim. So the old gentiles who converted to the faith of Israel kept the Law.
Isaiah 56:6 says: The children of the foreigners who follow Elohim to serve him, that love the name of Elohim, and that keep the Shabat without profaning it, and that embrace my covenant, to these I will take to my set apart Mountain. Clearly this promise is for gentiles who keep his Law.
Isaiah 66:17 says: Those that keep eating pork will be destroyed. Here we see clearly how the laws of clean food are in force, since this verse talks about the future.
Isaiah 66:23 says: And it will come to pass, that from new moon to new moon and from shabat to shabat, all flesh will bow before me to worship me, says Elohim.
Here we can see how the Hebrew calendar will be restored worldwide, and all the world will keep the shabat instead of Sunday. So this calendar which is a roman calendar with all the other pagan calendars will be abolished.
Zakariah 8:23 says: in those days (Messianic Millenium) it will come to pass that ten men from different countries and languages, will take hold of the corner of the garment of one Jew, and will tell him, take s with you, for we know that Elohim is with you!
This verse talks about the Millenial Kingdom of Yeshua, and it demolishes all the doctrines and religions that say that Elohim has abandoned Israel, and has chosen another people, all the prophets till Yeshua were Hebrews and all his apostles were hebrews,and the idea here is that all who belive in Yeshua have part in the new Israel, so the world will convert to the faith and Law of Israel, instead of Israel converting to the pagan ways of the world.
Galatians 3:29 proves this point: if you are of Messiah you are the seed of Abraham, and heirs to the promise, so those who believe in Yeshua are part of the new Israel.
When constantine the Roman emperor invented Christianity, the first thing he did was to persecute the Hebrews that did not accept his pagan doctrines, so from that moment on the true congregation went underground for the following 1600 years, and many people wrongly thought that Elohim abandoned Israel to chose the gentile church, which was full of paganism and corruption.
Zakariah 14:16 says: All the nations will come to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of Sukot (tabernacles), and the nation that does not come, will have no rain. This verse shows us that all pagan celebrations, like sunday, new year, easter etc will be abolished, and all the world will keep only the celebrations mentioned in the law. Leviticus 23 mentions them.
Malachy 4:4 says: Remember the Law of my servant Moses. This prophecy talks about before the great coming of the Messiah, we have to remember his Law.
Now let us take a look on Revelation 12:17, it says that the remnant of the woman (the people of Elohim) are those who keep the commandments of Elohim and have the testimony of Yeshua, this verse repeats in Revelation 14:12.
This verse tells that that true believers are those doing the commandments of Elohim and walking and Yeshua walked, there are many who claim to keep the Law but do not walk with Yeshua, and there are many who claim to walk with Yeshua, but do not keep the Law.
So in summary all the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation command us to keep the Law of Mt. Sinai, what was abolished is the law of sin and the law of men (traditions and rules of men).
Now let us talk about some verses related to circumcision and to term: be under the law, these have been difficult to understand, for many readers.
Corinthians 7:18 says: Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.
This verse has been a stumbling block for many, but if we examine it deeply, we will find some insights.
First of all, the verse begins like this: Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. The verse clearly tells that those who are circumcised need to remain like that keeping the law forever, because when a person is circumcised and becomes uncircumcised, it means that he broke the Law.
Now the second part says: Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.(for the moment) Paul instructed only the corinthians this particular matter, not the entire world, and the original idea was that the uncircumcised remain like that till they grow in the knowledge of the Torah, and then they can be circumcised by an apostle, like when Paul circumcised Timothy. Because if the uncircumcised people get circumcised right away
they would be compelled by the law to keep all the commandments, and they were still immature in the faith,and also those a possible scenario, is that the pharisees were the only ones around to perform the circumcision, so the problem here is that the pharisees would compel all those whom they circumcised to obey their laws of men and traditions, instead of obeying only the Law of Mt. Sinai. You need to understand that there was a war between the Believers in Yeshua and the pharisees, the pharisees wanted to force people to convert to their man made religion and to keep all their traditions, while apostles wanted to convert people to the true faith of Israel, where they were required only to keep the commandments of Mt. Sinai.
Now let us see romans 7:14 which says: The Law is spiritual, but I'm carnal sold as a slave to sin,
And in Acts 23:6 Paul confesses he is a pharisee, this proves he kept the Law till the end,a and spoke well of it.
In the book of Ezekiel from chap 40 to 48, it talks about the building of the Temple, how during the millenium of Yeshua the Temple will be standing, and the levites will serve there doing all the offerings, because Yeshua paid our sin offering, but in the new Temple we will still do the peace offerings and the free will offerings, and our vows.
In Hebrews 8:13 says: In that he saith, A new [covenant], he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.
Many have misunderstood this verse to mean the the Law of Mt. Sinai is old, this is a terrible interpretations. The verse actually talks about the new covenant, how now the Law is written in our hearts, Jeremiah 31:31,and also it means that the levitical order of Aron came to an end, and now we are in the order of Melkizedek. And so it was becaus 30 some years after Yeshua, the Romans came to Jerusalem and destroyed the temple.
Pet 3:16 says that many misunderstood the letters of Paul for their own destruction and.
2Pet 3:17 says: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know [these things] before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the lawlessness, fall from your own stedfastness.
So 2Pet 3:17 is warning us that many twisted Pauls letters and ended in destruction, which is lawlessness.
In summary the Law is forever, as Isaiah 66 says and, Zakariah 14, Romans 3:31 by faith we establish the Law and Revelation 12:17.
The true doctrine of Elohim is manifested between Genesis to Revelation, this is the only and true way.
Shalom to you, and remember: The secret power of lawlessness is already at work 2Thes2:7
