His Word is Truth

Unadulterated Biblical Truth

title


This is another popular spot where words are twisted.

It is falsely being taught that Romans 10:4 says that the Messiah is the end of the law of YHWH.

The verse does not say that.

It says that the Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness.
It does not say he is the end of the law.


Paul;
Romans 10:4 "
For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes"



The point of Paul's words here are once again that Yahushua's blood and sacrifice is how we become righteous in YHWH's sight now, and that we do not have to keep the commandments perfectly our entire life to obtain such righteousness.
Now all we have to do is take part in this new covenant, and we will be made clean and righteous to Elohim.


Also the verses before 10:4 may have false teachings attached to them that those who still keep the law are without knowledge and ignorant, and that they are trying to establish their own righteousness by keeping the law, however this is not said at all if you're reading in context.

He is talking about those people who are rejecting the Messiah, which means they're rejecting that righteousness, and also thinking they will be seen as righteous and perfect in YHWH's sight by doing other things. 





Lastly, some bible translations butcher this section to where it indeed does say false things.
I have seen these bad translations, and also some may use a " , " to try and say the Messiah is the end of the law, however if it did say such, that would contradict Paul in so many other places where he says the law is to be kept, and obviously it would contradict the entire Bible.
Keep an eye out for those messed up translations.




Paul;
Romans 10:1 "Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to Elohim for Yisrael is that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of Elohim, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of Elohim's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of Elohim. For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes"
