Scoring:

For every answer of “A” score yourself one point. Add up all of your points.


Perfect 20 – Congrats, you understand and practice God’s Truth.

10-19 – You scored rather well and certainly better than most. You are on your way to understanding and applying God’s Truth and purging the false doctrines of men. Check out the scripture cheat sheet below to help with the questions you might have missed (answering “B”).

0-9 – You scored less than 50% which is less than the statistical average expected if just guessing answers. Please strongly consider reviewing the Scripture in the cheat sheet below and testing your doctrine to His Word.  Unfortunately you are currently on the path to being “least in the Kingdom” at best and are effectively limiting your love of God. I pray that you listen to the Holy Spirit that is to teach us all things.



God's Word Cheat Sheet:


Questions 1-2


1. The correct answer is “A.” God’s Word teaches that none of God’s Law can pass away at least until Heaven and Earth pass away and all of the Law and Prophets are fulfilled.

2. The correct answer is “A.” God’s Word teaches that those who teach that some of God’s commandments have been abolished will be least in His Kingdom.


Mt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I do not come to destroy, but to fulfill (with meaning).

Mt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all (law and prophets) be fulfilled.

Mt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus (Y'shua) stated Himself that not one of God’s commandments was to be “abolished” or “put an end to” until all of the Law and Prophets are fulfilled and Heaven and Earth passes away.

Heaven and Earth passing away by being made new (renewed) is the last prophetic event foretold in scripture.

Isaiah 65:17 "Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.

Revelation 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away,

Please note that this event has clearly not yet happened.

Jesus (Y'shua) states that all of God’s law will exist at LEAST UNTIL the day that the Lord states:

Revelation 21:5-6 He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Christ’s work on the cross for our salvation is finished (John 19:30), but the Lord is not yet finished with what has been said in all of His Law and Prophets until He says “it is done” which is signaled by the new Heaven and New Earth.

So if this scripture is true, then what scriptural gymnastics do some teachers employ to avoid such a conclusion?

Well, if they touch the verse at all, it creates quite an embarrassing mess.

Some teach that in Matthew 5:17 fulfill means “to put and end to” or to “finish.” This is done by their own admission to avoid the clear teaching of Jesus that not one of God’s commandments are to pass away from the law and to preserve their misinterpretations of Paul’s letters.

If this interpretation is indeed true, we should be able to apply such teaching to scripture and it should make logical sense as God is not the author of confusion. We are commanded to test all things and only hold on to what is good (1 Thes. 5:20) Let’s test the teaching that “fulfill” means “to put and end to” or “finish” instead of “fulfill” simply meaning to “fill up the whole and complete meaning” of God’s law, evidenced by Jesus walking out the true interpretation (not Pharisaical) of God’s law.

Can fulfill in Mt 5:17 mean “to put an end to?

Mt 5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I do not come to destroy (the law), but to “put and end (to the law")

Huh?

Mt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all (law and prophets) be fulfilled.

Double huh?

Mt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments (that I just put an end to), and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them (even though I put an end to them), the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Triple huh?

There are only two possible interpretations of “fulfill” in Matthew 5:17.

1) One is that Jesus came to “fulfill the real meaning of God’s law” which the Pharisees polluted through their oral law. This makes sense because this was the complete point and purpose of every teaching of Jesus when He was in proximity to the Pharisees. This is to correctly instruct us in the way God wants us to walk in His law and not the way men want us to walk in God’s law.

2) Or “fulfill” in Matthew 5:17 means to “complete, finish, or put an end to.” All one has to do is insert that definition into the context of the scripture to witness how such an interpretation is illogical and absurd.

Technically, ignoring context and word usage, based on a literal rendering of the Greek, either interpretation is acceptable:

G4137 pleroo play-ro'-o from G4134;
to make replete, i.e. (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.:--accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfil, (be, make) full(come), fully preach, perfect, supply. (Strong's)

The only interpretation of “fulfill” that fits the context and avoids logical absurdities is to understand Jesus is teaching that He will make full or fully preach God’s law.

Jesus (Y'shua) came to fully preach God’s law.

He taught us the full meaning of God’s law.

Does that not fit the ministry of Jesus(Y'shua) perfectly? Jesus taught, walked, practiced, obeyed and lived the Law of Moses. Are we not commanded to walk as Jesus walked?

1Jn 2:6 He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.



Question 3


3. The correct answer is “A.” Paul taught us that there is no difference between Jew and Greek in Christ.

Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Ro 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.



Question 4


4. The correct answer is “A.” Paul stated that he practiced and taught others the Law of Moses.

When Paul was accused of not believing, practicing, and teaching the Law of Moses, he made every effort to prove everyone wrong.

Acts21:20-26 When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: "You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law. They have been informed that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away FROM MOSES, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs.

What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come, so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow. Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everybody will know there is NO TRUTH in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in OBEDIENCE TO THE LAW. As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality."

The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them.

In that instance alone, Paul proved to his accusers that he believed and practiced the Law of Moses. Should we accuse Paul of not teaching and practicing the Law of Moses?

When Paul was continuously accused by the Pharisees for not believing, practicing, and teaching the Law of Moses, how did he respond?

Acts 24:13-14 Nor can they prove the things of which they now accuse me. But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing (pisteuo) ALL THINGS which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. (pisteuo = to believe, commit, and trust)

Did Paul keep the Law of Moses?

Acts 25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews (Moses), neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.

Did Paul keep God’s feast days?

Acts 18:20-21 When they asked him to stay a longer time with them, he did not consent, but took leave of them, saying, “I MUST BY ALL MEANS KEEP THIS COMING FEAST in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, God willing.” And he sailed from Ephesus.

Again, did Paul keep God’s feast days?

Acts 20:17 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, so that he would not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hurrying to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the Day of Pentecost.

Again, did Paul keep God’s feast days?

Acts 27:9-10 Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast (Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur) was already over, Paul advised them, saying, “Men, I perceive that this voyage will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also our lives.”

Did Paul teach his converts to keep God’s feasts like he did and Jesus did?

1 Cor 5:8 For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the Feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth

It is very clear that Paul did not practice or teach that any of God’s law as written by Moses had been abolished in any capacity. So then how is it concluded that Paul teaches that God’s law has been abolished?

Paul also said:

Ro 2:13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.

Ro 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Ro 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Ro 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish/continue (histemi) the law.

We do not want to make the same accusations to Paul (that he taught against God’s law as written by Moses) that Paul already defended himself against in scripture. We should not make false accusations against Paul.



Question 5


5. The correct answer is “A.” Jesus (Y’shua) commanded us to observe and do what was taught out of Moses’ Seat (Law of Moses).

Matthew 23:1-3 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.

Do Christian scholar’s also define the “Moses’ seat” to be the Law of Moses just as it is taught to be in scripture? Yes, here is a sample:

The Geneva Study Bible:
“(1) We ought to listen to whatever we are truly taught from the word of God, even by wicked teachers, but in a way so that we abstain from their evil behaviour.”

The People’s New Testament:

23:2 Sit in the Moses' seat. Are the expounders of the law of Moses.”

Wesly’s Notes:
“23:2 The scribes sit in the chair of Moses - That is, read and expound the law of Moses, and are their appointed teachers.”

Scofield:
Cf. Ezra 7:6,25,26. Jesus' disciples were to honour the law (of Moses), but not the hypocritical teachers of it.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary:
in Moses' seat-that is, as interpreters of the law given by Moses.

Christian commentary and scholarship agrees that the Moses’ seat was indeed the Law of Moses and that the disciples were commanded by Jesus to keep the Law of Moses.

So what does all of this mean?

It means simply what Jesus commanded. Jesus clearly commanded His disciples to OBSERVE and DO the Law of Moses (Matthew 23:1-3). No one disputes this. Many just choose to ignore it. This is a shame because Jesus (Y’shua) said:

Mt 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

This was the last commandment Jesus (Y’shua) issued to His disciples before His ascension. It is considered one of the most important commandments ever uttered by Jesus and is the foundational setting of most vision and mission statements of Christian churches all over the world.

My question is do we really want to do what Jesus commanded in the Great Commission and if we do then why are we not doing it?

There are really two parts that consist of what is commonly referred to as the “Great Commission of Jesus Christ.”

1) Go to all nations and baptize new disciples.

2) Teach the new disciples to obey everything I (Jesus) commanded you (disciples).

So Jesus is very clear that all of His disciples in all nations are to obey everything He commanded.  It is well established that Jesus (Y'shua) commanded and taught His disciples and others to keep the law of Moses.  In the Great Commission He is clearly stating that we should do and teach likewise.



Questions 6&7:


6&7. The correct answers are “A.” According to God’s Word God’s Law (as written by Moses) God’s law (as written by Moses) is liberty/freedom and is already perfect.

This is how scripture defines God’s law:

1. The Law blesses (obey) and curses (disobey).
(Deut 11:26-27)(Ps 112:1)(Ps 119:1-2)(Ps 128:1)(Prov 8:32)(Is 56:2)(Mat 5:6)(Mat 5:10)(Luke 11:28)(Jam 1:25)(1 Pe 3:14)(Rev 22:14)

2. The Law defines sin.
(Jer 44:23)(Ez 18:21)(Dan 9:11)(Ro 3:20)(Ro 7:7)(1 Jo 3:4)

2. The Law is perfect.
(Ps 19:7)(Jam 1:25)

3. The Law is liberty.
(Ps 119:45)(Jam 1:25, 2:12)

4. The Law is the way.
(Ex 18:20)(Deut 10:12)(Josh 22:5)(1 King 2:3)(Ps 119:1)(Prov 6:23)(Is 2:3)(Mal 2:8(Mark 12:14)(Ac 24:14)

5. The Law is the truth.
(Ps 119:142)(Mal 2:6)(Ro 2:20)(Gal 5:7)(Ps 43:2-4)(Jo 8:31-32)

6. The Law is life.
(Job 33:30)(Ps 36:9)(Prov 6:23)(Rev 22:14)

7. The Law is light.
(Job 24:13)(Job 29:3)(Ps 36:9)(Ps 43:2-4)(Ps 119:105)(Prov 6:23)(Is 2:5) (Is 8:20)(Is 51:4)(2 Cor 6:14)(1 John 1:7)

8. The Law is Jesus, the Word made flesh.
(PERFECT-LIBERTY-WAY-TRUTH-LIFE-LIGHT)
(Ps 27:1)(Jo 1:1-14)(Jo 14:5-11)(1 Jo 1:7)

9. The Law is also for the Gentiles (foreigner/alien) who are grafted in.
(Ex 12:19) (Ex 12:38) (Ex 12:49) (Lev 19:34) (Lev 24:22) (Num 9:14) (Num 15-16) (Num 15:29) (ie: Ruth) (Is 42:6) (Is 60:3) (Mat 5:14) (Eph 2:10-13) (Ac 13:47) (Ro 11:16-27) (Jer31:31-34) (Ez 37) (1 Jo 2:10) (1 Jo 1:7)

10. The Law is God’s instructions on how to love God, how to love others, and how to not love yourself.
(Ex 20:6)(Deut 5:10)(Deut 7:10)(Deut 11:13)(Deut 11:22)(Deut 30:16)(Deut 6:5)(Lev 19:18)(Neh 1:5)(Dan 9:4)(Mat 22:35-37)(Matthew 10:39)(Mat 16:25)(Jo 14:15)(Jo 14:21)(Ro 13:9)(1 Jo 5:2-3)(2 Jo 1:6)



Questions 8:


8. The correct answer is “A.” According to God’s Word those who have faith in Christ and are part of the New Covenant are no longer Gentiles but now Israelites.

We were grafted in amoung them, into their olive tree (Israel)(Jer. 11:16) and are no longer a wild olive tree (Nations/Gentiles). We are now Israel.

Ro 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Ro 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

Ro 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

Ro 11:20
Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Ro 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not thee.

Ro 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Ro 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Ro 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

We were once Gentiles, but now we are now citizens of the commonwealth of Israel.

Eph 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

The New Covenant is for the House of Judah (2 tribes)(Jews) and the House of Israel (10 tribes) thus for all of Israel (12 tribes). Thus if we are part of the New Covenant we are then part of Israel.

Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.



Question 9:


9. The correct answer is “A.” As God commanded to Israel, Leviticus 23:3 is true and useful as instructions for righteousness.

ALL (not some) scripture is given by inspiration of God.

ALL (not some) scripture is profitable for doctrine.

ALL (not some) scripture is for rebuking and correction

ALL (not some) scripture is for INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.


When we understand and apply this, then and only then are we completely furnished unto all good works.



Question 10


10. The correct answer is “A.” According to scripture, Paul’s writings can be twisted by those ignorant and unstable to be carried away into the “error of the lawless” because his letters are hard to understand.

Peter realized many were making serious error in abolishing commandments of God and understood that a root cause of this error was often related to a misunderstanding of Paul’s letters.

2 Pe 3:15-17 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the scriptures. You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the lawless;

Peter did not state that Paul was a false prophet, schitzophrenic or hypicryte. Peter simply stated that Paul was difficult to understand and that ignorant and unstable people twist Paul’s letters into the error of lawlessness.

What we can then conclude is that Paul was not contradicting himself but instead we have just misunderstood him. We have made the error of the lawless because we are untaught and ignorant about what the rest of scripture teaches. Mainstream Christianity doctrine is unstable at best and is generated from a methodocogy of verse plucking scripture out of context and inserting our bias to create doctrines and interpretive frameworks that our flesh is more comfortable with. We then heap up a great number of these teachers to cater to our itching ears.

2 Tim:2-4 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.
Instead, to suit their own desires, they will heap up around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.


When read from start to finish and with a solid foundation in the rest of scripture it is quickly understood that Paul’s letters completely agree with the rest of scripture.



Question 11


11. The correct answer is “A.” Keeping God’s law blesses us.

(Deut 11:26-27)(Ps 112:1)(Ps 119:1-2)(Ps 128:1)(Prov 8:32)(Is 56:2)(Mat 5:6)(Mat 5:10)(Luke 11:28)(Jam 1:25)(1 Pe 3:14)(Rev 22:14)


Question 12



12. The correct answer is “A.” We are to love God by keeping His commandments.

(Ex 20:6)(Deut 5:10)(Deut 7:10)(Deut 11:13)(Deut 11:22)(Deut 30:16)(Deut 6:5)(Lev 19:18)(Neh 1:5)(Dan 9:4)(Mat 22:35-37)(Matthew 10:39)(Mat 16:25)(Jo 14:15)(Jo 14:21)(Ro 13:9)(1 Jo 5:2-3)(2 Jo 1:6)


Question 13


13. The correct answer is “A.” When Jesus (Y’shua) returns there will still be sacrifices during the 1000 year reign.

(Zech 14:1-21)(Ezekiel 40-48)


Question 14


14. The correct answer is “A.” When Jesus (Y’shua) returns there will be those who will be punished for eating swine’s flesh.

Isa 66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

Isa 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

Isa 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

Isa 66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.



Question 15


15. The correct answer is “A.” When Jesus (Y’shua) returns we will be keeping the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) every year because nothing in God’s law has been abolished.

(Zech. 14)



Question 16


16. The correct answer is “A.” The whole purpose of man is to fear God and keep His commandments.

Ec 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

What is God's desire for you? To love Him with all of your heart, soul and mind (Deut. 6:5/Mat 22:7) How do we love God? By keeping His commandments (1 Jn 5:3/Jn 14:15/2 Jn 1:6) So we are to keep God's commandments with all of our heart, soul, and mind? Yes! Ec 12:13 is True. And we are to teach ALL nations the same (Mat 28:19-20), everything taught out of Moses' Seat (Mat 23:1-3)



Question 17


17. The correct answer is “A.” We know that we know God If we keep God’s commandments.

1Jn 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

1Jn 2:4 He that says, I know him, and keeps not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

1Jn 2:5 But whoso keeps his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

1Jn 2:6 He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.



Question 18


18. The correct answer is “A.” God stated several times that He hates to be worshipped in ways that the sun god’s were worshipped and His people practice pagan traditions.

Dt 12:30 Take heed to youself that you are not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before you; and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? We will do the same." You must not worship the LORD your God in their way!

Jer 10:2-4
Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they, And they cannot speak; They must be carried, Because they cannot walk! Do not fear them, for they can do no harm, nor can they do any good."

Dt 12:4 You must not worship the LORD your God in their way.



Question 19


19. The correct answer is “A.” scripture says that we do not need teachers to teach us, that the Holy Spirit teaches us all things.

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.



Question 20


20. The correct answer is “A.” Paul stated that he delights in God’s law and that we should continue in God’s law.

Ro 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Ro 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish/continue (histemi) the law.

If nothing else, perhaps some of us have learned:

Ps 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
It is the "law of sin and death" that we are no longer in grace by faith (Romans 6-9).

  2. Oh how fun! I love tests! They help us us measure our understanding. Praise Yah! Great Idea! One of my favorite little sayings is "Know The Book; There will be a test!"

    I loved this!
