One of the last things HaShem spoke through prophecy is, “Keep in remembrance the teaching of Moses, My servant -the laws and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel.” Malachi 3:22.
The church would have us believe that the Law of Moses somehow became void. How is it that HaShem said to remember the teachings of Moses if they were to become void in a few hundred years? Everything that the church teaches is in direct conflict with this verse. The heretic Paul said no one could keep the law. Are we to believe that G-d said to do something that could not be done? Would He spend His last few words of prophecy instructing us to do something we could not do? Why would He waste His last chance to instruct us in the way we should go by giving us the wrong directions? If the church’s claims are true, this would be the ideal place to let us know. But He didn’t do that. He said to remember the teachings of Moses. One can only take away from this that this is what He wanted us to do. The church got it wrong.
Today there are many groups teaching a wide variety of things concerning Christianity. There are literally thousands of denominations all claiming to be right. But the joke is on them. They are all wrong.
One thing to always keep in mind when reading the Bible is to know who is speaking and to whom. If you look at this passage, you will see that HaShem is talking to Israel. Why is this important? Because Israel has an important role to play in the world. Israel is to be the light to the nations. But what does that mean? We know that light is used to draw people into safety; the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. This is why the Jewish people have survived all these years.
For centuries the Jewish people survived by living among the other nations of the world. Not until recent history did the land of Israel become a Jewish state. During these centuries of dispersion, with varying degrees of persecution, the Jewish people survived. In some places, they were allowed to thrive. In places like Spain, they had a terrible experience. They were pushed out of countries all across Europe, culminating with what happened in Germany during World War 2. It is generally accepted that six million Jews died at the hands of the Germans. I have seen some estimates that put that number at around nine million. How many were actually killed? Only HaShem knows for sure. To call this a tragedy doesn’t give it justice; especially when one looks at some of the pictures from that time.
In the Torah, we see many examples of HaShem turning a bad situation into something good for His people. This is exactly what He did with the Shoah (Holocaust). Many people think that the benefit was that the Jews were allowed to return to their ancestral homeland. It is true that this did happen and that is an amazing fulfillment of prophecy. But another thing the Shoah did was to put the Jewish people firmly into the public eye. Although reluctant to help, at first, the nations of the world for the first time in history, came to the rescue of the Jewish people. It is true that the Allies knew what was going on long before they decided to help. An unknowable number of lives could have been spared from the torturous deaths they faced.
What happened after the war is another miracle. While people all over the world knew who the Jewish people were; they had been persecuting them for centuries. No one really knew anything about them. The Shoah set the stage for what we are seeing today. The people of the world are turning to the Jewish people in order to learn about the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. People are learning about Him en mass for the first time ever and that is the miracle of the Shoah.
When you get right down to it, what the church maintains is that G-d changed His mind. They will argue that He didn’t change His mind but that their teachings were part of the plan from the beginning. The problem with this argument is that it is not supported by scripture. So, the only way for it to be true is that He would have had to have changed His mind. He doesn’t do that. In short, they got it wrong.
