The Holy Spirit and Lawlessness

Photo-chopped signpost in a park.

Does the Holy Spirit lead us into lawlessness?  Indeed, can He?

This morning, while reading Ray Gardner’s Study Notes on Genesis 24, I came across the following quote. The last paragraph struck me.  My notes follow.

Eliezer = El is my help (s#0461 אליעזר )
Eliezer (type of Holy Spirit) was sent to take a bride (The Bride of Yeshua) a chaste virgin, who would leave her family and all that she possessed to marry a man she had never seen. Isaac (type of Yeshua) was born through a miracle of יהוה. She would come to him by faith, believing all she had been told about him. She fell in love with him by hearing about him from Eliezer (type of Holy Spirit). She would make a difficult journey on a caravan of 10 camels (10 commandments) and she would marry Isaac (Yeshua) the day she first saw him. All that his father (type of יהוה) possessed has been given to Isaac (Yeshua). (Yeshua said the Father has given all things unto my hand John 3:35) The land that Isaac (Yeshua) lives on is given to him by יהוה. The father has said he can not take a wife of those who worship idols and live sinful lives. The decision is in the hands of the bride not Eliezer. By her own words she committed to become his bride.

The Holy Spirit does not speak of Himself but only speaks as the God Head directs. Eliezer’s name is not mentioned in this whole Torah portion, he refers to himself as the servant of Abraham. Yeshua said in John 14:26 But the Comforter which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you. (He speaks of the things of Yeshua not of Himself).

The Holy Spirit does not speak anything that does not agree with the word of יהוה. Much confusion has been brought into the congregation of believers concerning the work of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit only confirms the words of the Torah, the words of יהוה. Many say they don’t have to follow the law (Torah) because they have the Holy Spirit to guide them. We need to remember the Shama in Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear Oh Israel  our Elohim is One (Ekhad) יהוה. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are united in all things and there is only one narrow way to be accepted into the Kingdom of Heaven.  [bold, mine]

Does the Holy Spirit lead us into lawlessness?  Indeed, can He?

The obvious answer is ‘NO!!,’ which begs the question, ‘What spirit is leading Christendom into ignoring, or even intentionally acting contrary to the Laws of God?

Like Ray, I’ve heard so many times, ‘I have the Holy Spirit, why do I need the Torah?,’ a sentiment rife within Christendom.  The Torah lists multiple actions as ‘forever’ and obedience is commanded, I don’t care what your pastor says.

  • Passover, ‘forever in all your dwelling places’  Exodus 12:14, 24; 13:9-10
  • The Feasts of the Lord, ‘forever…’  Leviticus 23:14, 21, 31, 41
  • The Seventh day Sabbath, ‘forever…’  Exodus 31:12-17
  • The Torah, ‘forever…’  Psalm 119:44-45, 142
  • etc., etc.

Isaiah 8 says, if the ‘profits’ do not point you TO the Torah, there is no light in them…

14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law (תורה torah) among my disciples.

17 And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

20 To the law (תורה torah) and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Again, what spirit leads a man if it leads him away from the Torah?  Not the Holy Spirit!

(I submit, it is the spirit of rebellion that led the House of Israel to depart from Yehovah’s ways in the first place that continues to operate within Christendom….) Selah.

    Rav Pete, the link in Elephants and Theologians to your congregation’s statement of faith is a dead link — wanted to give u a heads-up. Shabbat Shalom! David Rivers

      Thank you. Because it is a direct quote from another blog, I left it intact, but the fellowship website is currently inactive, though the fellowship is still active.

      You could search a part of that quote and it may lead you to the original post I put on the ‘unnamed blog.’. 😉
