Only One Way To The Kingdom
First, from Galatians 3:28 we learn that salvation is not exclusive to any one race or group. In Yahweh’s eyes believing Hebrews and believing Gentiles are on equal footing. This is true no matter your perspective. Verse 29 says you are the seed of Abraham if you are Yahshua’s and therefore have the salvation promise.
And neither is there a difference when it comes to the avenue leading to life everlasting. There is only one truth and one way to salvation. In Ephesians 4:5 Paul confirms that there is “one faith, one hope, one baptism,” not two truths, one for the ancient Hebrew and the other for the modern Christian.
In Jude 3, Yahshua’s brother tells us we must return to the original faith once given to the saints. And what is that? Ephesians 2:20 says that faith is built on the Apostles and prophets, or in other words it encompasses both Old Testament and New Testament.
In Revelation 14:12 true faith is defined by those who keep the commandments and have faith in Yahshua. In Revelation 3:8 it also means those who have not denied His Name.
These are all fundamental truths of the Old Testament. (Second Testament)
Yisrael can not be done away with but rather "joined" by taking hold of Yahweh's First Teatament Truth, that He proclaimed for all His people. If the Scriptures recognize that there is no difference between Hebrews and the “church,” then the Feasts, Sabbaths, and laws cannot be exclusively for Hebrews, Israel or restricted to any other particular people.
John wrote, “Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you have heard from the beginning,” 1John 2:7.
Yahshua Only Had the Old Testament (Law or Torah)
Yahshua the Messiah only had the Law or the Old Testament. He said many times over and over; "is it not written in the scriptures"?...So then, the very foundation of His teachings and His life was based on the Law, not the sao called New World theology. In John 5:46-47 He said: "For had ye believed Moshe, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words"?
Hebrew and gentile must follow the same Truth because there is only one Truth.
Already we are seeing proof that Old Testament promises apply in the New Testament.
Most people are unaware that the Old Testament contains teachings on a number of what are considered New Testament doctrines. For example,
• Grace, as an Old Testament concept, is found in Exodus 34:6-7.
• There is justice and mercy in Micah 6:8, which our Savior Himself refers to in Matthew. 23:23.
• Moses had the Holy Spirit in Numbers 11, and he gave it to 70 elders.
• David had the Spirit in Psalm 51.
• Circumcision of the heart is found in Deuteronomy 30:6 and Jeremiah 4:4.
• The “Gospel” was preached to the Israelite, we learn from Hebrews 4:2, as well as to Abraham, Galatians 3:8.
• Yahweh has no pleasure in sacrifices, but says obedience is better, Hebrews 10:6.
Yahshua even confounded Satan by quoting the Old Testament (Matt. 4:7-10). Why didn’t Satan say to Him, “Why are you quoting that outdated and dead book?” Even the Adversary knew the Old Testament was alive!
In short, the Old Testament was not only the textbook of the New Testament patriarchs, but also their guide to living the life acceptable to Yahweh.
