Which Veil? | 119 Ministries

Which Veil? | 119 MinistriesHere is one of those sobering verses from the Prophets:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.  Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”  (Hosea 4:6 NKJV)

It goes well with this verse:

Where there is no vision, the people perish:  but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.  (Proverbs 29:18 KJV)

There are many reasons Christians hold the Law (Torah) of God at arm’s length, but I think the greatest reasons are fear and ignorance.  The fear is from a misperception that the Torah loads us down with an unbearable burden and inescapable bondage.  This misperception has grown from of a lack of understanding (e.g., ignorance) of the Scriptures.  All too often we study “the back of the book” (the New Testament) and ignore “the front of the book” (the Old Testament).  The Old Testament (Tanakh in Hebrew) is the foundation on which the Apostles built when they wrote the New Testament.  If we do not study that foundation, our knowledge is imperfect and our vision or revelation is incomplete.  The result is a tremendous loss of the blessing which comes from obeying the Lord’s commandments.  One might say we believers in Yeshua have a veil over our faces that keep us from seeing this simple truth!

Which Veil? | 119 MinistriesThis brings us to a subject addressed in Which Veil?, a new teaching from 119 Ministries.  Here is the introduction to the teaching from their website:

 “We have heard many times over from people how the law is no longer for believers today.  And many of those refer to 2 Corinthians chapter 3 for their support in claiming how the law is a veil and we are to no longer have that veil since it is removed in Christ.  Join us in this brief teaching as we examine just which veil Paul was really talking about.”

Take 15 minutes and review this teaching.  You will be surprised at how we have missed the simple understanding of Paul’s writing just because we have skimmed over the Torah passage he references and missed the proper connection!
