Christian Churches of God
The Noahide Laws
(Edition 1.0 20160813-20160813)
The fraud of the Noahide Laws has been passed on the world to distance Judaism from Christianity and to deny the Laws of God coming from His nature and the absolute relationship of the Law and the Patriarchs and the extension of the Laws of God to mankind. Its purpose is to establish antinomianism and the fiction that God gave the law to Levites to place in Israel and that the Trinitarian Sunday worshipping church is not bound by it.
The Noahide Laws
Contrary to popular myth, the Law of God and the commandments were in existence, in total, from the beginning. This is demonstrated in the texts on The Doctrine of Original Sin Part 1 The Garden of Eden (No. 246) and the paper Doctrine of Original Sin Part 2 The Generations of Adam (No. 248). The concept of a Noahide Law prior to Sinai is a fiction of later rabbinical Judaism. The understanding and fear of God was in Israel from Adam to the Patriarchs, and on into Egypt, as seen in the example of the midwives (Ex. 1:17-21).
God spoke to His servants the prophets and especially Moses through the Angel of Yahovah (cf. the paper The Angel of YHVH (No. 24)). (Ex. 3:2-22).
From the paper The False Messiah (No. 67B) we pose the question:
How do Jews intend to relate to the Gentiles and get them to accept their false Messiah and “convert” to the so-called basic tenets of the Bible?
The answer is simple and they have already made this assertion to the world in the form of the so-called “Seven Noahide Laws”. The so-called Noahide Laws are a clear attempt to do away with the Laws of God in the nations. This is the underpinning of the mystery of Iniquity.
They hold that:
“Judaism does not demand that everyone convert to the religion. The Torah of Moses is a truth for all humanity, whether Jewish or not. King Solomon asked God to heed the prayers of non-Jews who come to the Holy Temple (Kings I 8:41-43). The prophet Isaiah refers to the Temple as a "House for all nations."
The Temple service during Sukkot featured 70 bull offerings, corresponding to the 70 nations of the world. The Talmud says that if the Romans would have realized how much benefit they were getting from the Temple, they’d never have destroyed it.
Jews have never actively sought converts to Judaism because the Torah prescribes a righteous path for gentiles to follow, known as the "Seven Laws of Noah." Maimonides explains that any human being who faithfully observes these basic moral laws earns a proper place in heaven.” (Simmons, ibid.)
The so-called Seven Laws of Noah are:
1. Sexual transgression; (including its many forms);
5. Blasphemy (Cursing the Name);
6. Eating the limb of a living animal;
7. The requirement for just laws within a society.
These seven laws are spurious nonsense in that no such system was ever in place from Noah, and the Patriarchs were far more advanced and law abiding than this devious ruse of rabbinical Judaism would have us believe. Noah took on the ark seven pairs of every clean animal and one pair of unclean. The Foodlaws were in place from the Creation (see the paper The Foodlaws (No. 15) and also the paper Vegetarianism and the Bible (No. 183)). So also was the understanding of the creation and the calendar in its entirety. Josephus records that the two pillars of stone and brick explaining the calendar were erected by Seth, and the pillar of stone recording the erection of both pillars was still in place in Siriad (Syria) in his day (Josephus, A. of J., Bk. 1; 2.3).
The law of Idolatry is so obscure as to be designed to obscure the second commandment, as is the custom among Catholics, so as to appeal to the idea that it is acceptable to make idols to pray to as long as they are of “Mary” or called intermediary saints.
They then assert that the systems of Justice of the Gentile nations are up to them as long as they keep to the lines of the Seven Noachide or Noahide Laws. They are then assured of earning a “place in heaven” which is a pagan concept totally contrary to original Christianity and to the Bible.
God has said, through His servants the prophets, that the entire calendar – of Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts – is to be kept by all nations in the Millennial Restoration of the Messiah and the nations will die if they do not keep it (Isa. 66:23; Zech. 14:16-19).
This Noahide Laws’ deception is then advanced as fact, and even the congress of the US has endorsed them because it suits the Trinitarians to do so thinking that they are on fairly safe grounds.
The U.S. Congress officially recognized the Seven Universal Laws of Noah in legislation which was passed by both houses. Congress and the President of the United States, George Bush, indicated in Public Law 102-14, 102nd Congress, that the United States of America was founded upon the Seven Universal Laws of Noah, and that these Laws have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization. They also acknowledged that the Seven Laws of Noah are the foundation upon which civilization stands and that recent weakening of these principles threaten the fabric of civilized society, and that justified preoccupation in educating the Citizens of the United States of America and future generations is needed. For this purpose, this Public Law designated March 26, 1991 as Education Day, U.S.A. http://www.shulchanaruch.com/courses/shortcourses/noahide-laws/
Even the Irish parliament has passed a meaningless and unenforceable law on blasphemy. Their constitution is a Trinitarian document and requires the Trinity, being orchestrated by the Roman Catholics in 1937. http://www.blasphemy.ie/category/topics/irish-constitution/
The Law stood from Adam and was observed by the Patriarchs and was reissued in full to Moses at Sinai by Jesus Christ who was with them in the wilderness (1Cor. 10:4).
The Seven Laws of Noah
It is well known that the Jewish faith does not seek to make converts, and so it is generally supposed that since the Jewish people do not want to make other people into Jews, they are happy just to be left alone. The world is often very surprised to discover that the Jewish faith includes a complete provision for all non-Jews, regardless of race, social class or national origin, perfectly attuned to their needs, and deriving from the same source in Divine revelation through the prophecy of Moses, without any intermediary whatsoever. Only the true universal faith of the Jews regularly offers something to those who are not its members, and this is its sign of authenticity.
This provision is known as the Noachide Laws. Though the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve, were commanded to observe them, they emerged fully only after Noah had survived the flood that wiped away violent sinners whose wrongdoings had engulfed the world in his time. The ancestors of the Jewish people were also commanded in them until they were given the whole Torah at Mount Sinai, and they were then reaffirmed through Moses for all the other nations.
The laws are all prohibitions, unlike those of the Jewish people who have affirmative commandments, but they are not intended to make life dull or restricted. They point out what the good and true path should be, and with this path all moral necessities for the non-Jews are established, without need for any other philosophy, scientific discovery or change in government. All relationships between Jews and non-Jews are likewise explained, both in Israel and in other countries.
All people originate from sexual relations, and so the laws which govern them are our most basic ‘constitution’, testifying to the Divine origin of humankind. Non-Jews are not commanded to marry, but they are encouraged to do so, and they are forbidden to have relations with the wife of another man. Male homosexuality, incest and bestial relations are also forbidden under the same heading, even though the desires for them are very different. Jews and non-Jews are forbidden to each other, because of the different origin of their respective commandments. When these laws are observed, then human relations of all kinds are enhanced by the Divine sanction, and love increases throughout the world.
Though the reasons for sexual prohibitions may be mysterious, most people if asked what laws they would make to govern the world would immediately say that on no account must illegal bloodshed be allowed to go unpunished. Human life is a sacred trust, and can only be taken with legal sanction. The murderer is executed by decapitation, at the sentence of the duly authorized sovereign court only. Protection is extended to the unborn, and the details of any abortion case must be closely studied according to the law. War action is subject to strict security standards, at the order of a lawful regime. It is rare for any person to take life in truly wanton circumstances, because of instinctive recognition of its value, and this recognition must be taken up to the level of reckoning which the spiritual law requires.
The first man and woman transgressed the Noachide prohibition of theft by eating the fruit which had been forbidden to them, and this is still a Divine provision for non-Jews regarding all property in the hands of others. Property ownership is underwritten by Divine law for all humanity, and is not just a matter for an aggrieved individual to settle for himself. Respect for property rights is the basis for generosity with possessions, and for business dealings that lead the world through its use and traffic of goods to its final destiny. This brings moral satisfaction in the workplace, and the fostering of ethics in this area is a prime need for our society.
If the worship of entities other than the Creator had not been forbidden by His express command, then people would be free to choose what to worship, just as they choose their own personal friends. However the whole area of relations between humanity and its Creator has been placed under specific requirements, namely that only His truth and unity should be the subject of belief, worship and philosophy. His revelation has two levels, the one in nature for ordinary reckoning, and the other through prophecy on Mount Sinai for the moral law. All non-Jews derive their true religious fulfillment from this latter source, and any reference to an intermediary causes error and loss of morality. There is no need for non-Jews to form associations for Noachide observance and prayer, but they may do so if they wish.
Cursing the Name
The power of speech distinguishes humanity from all other species, and this distinction leads to the specific human prohibition not to use speech for cursing the Creator, because it shows ingratitude for his kindness. This commandment pairs with the previous one, showing that the Divine rulership and the Divine love go together at all times and places, no matter how great the difficulties may seem. Jews and non-Jews are commanded in the same verse in this respect, showing how in the Messianic times all of humankind will join together in voicing praise for the Creator. All other misuses of speech, such as gossip, obscenity and lies, are indicated in this commandment as something to avoid, just as prayer and words of Torah are desirable so that speech will become truly Divine.
Eating the limb of a living animal
Though it may seem far-fetched to think of eating meat from a living creature, the intent behind this prohibition is to safeguard the human sexual integrity. The connection between eating and sexuality is well known, and it is the sexual drive for consumption of the ‘heat of life’ that leads to the kind of greed which damages reproduction. The Noachide Law teaches us that this is rectified by being careful to eat only meat from an animal that is fully dead, and this is by no means always the case in our factory society where slaughterhouses handle meat animals quickly and carelessly, sometimes only stunning them before cutting them up for sale. Care in this observance fosters all requirements for the love of nature and the preservation of the environment, and safeguards the passage of souls as manifested in the life and consumption of food animals until the ultimate destiny of the world.
System of justice
The non-Jewish nations of the world are commanded to avoid the state of anarchy by assuming and exercising the sovereign jurisdiction, to maintain courts that punish offenders by due process of law, and that provide civil redress in society. The Noachide Laws themselves form the basis of the criminal code, but each nation may make civil laws as it sees fit within the general guidelines. This provision does not apply within the Land of Israel, where the sovereign power is in the hands of the Jewish people, and they judge non-Jews of any nationality living or visiting there under these same Noachide Laws.
Corporations are held in being by the sovereign power through the enactment of corporate law, which is empowered by this commandment. The sovereign power is responsible for regulating these corporations in the public interest, and ensuring their conformity with all aspects of the law. Thus Communism and Fascism are in breach of the spiritual law because of their lack of this regulation. Non-Jews are obligated to seek reconciliation rather than take their disputes straight to court, and this in turn obligates them to give charitable donations to the needy so as to foster reconciliation in general.
The Rabbis of the Talmud say, ‘War comes to the world through the delay of justice, the perversion of justice, and the teaching of Torah out of accordance with its legal meaning.’ When all processes of law are rectified in this way, with good government applied to sustain them, functioning in Divine integrity, then grievances are properly handled and true peace emerges into the light of day. This is among the recognitions of the United States Congress in its Declaration endorsing the Noachide Laws (H.J. Res. 104, Public Law 102-14, March 1990 and subsequently), based on long historic understanding of the Jewish people and the Torah.
(cf. the paper The Doctrine of Original Sin Part 2 The Generations of Adam (No. 248))
The Line of Seth
We revert now back to Adam and the birth of Seth.
Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
Seth (SHD 8352 Shêth) means substituted and is derived from SHD 7896 shîyth meaning to place (this is also the probable origin of the English word sheath for a weapon).
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. (KJV)
From this time men began to call on the name of Yahovah. Thus the assertion that the name was not known until Sinai is a fiction. The law was given to the world from the beginning and Yahovah was part of the structure that issued it. The Noahide Laws are a rabbinical fiction to justify and be justified by the Babylonians and the Talmud. They have to have a half-way point between their misconstructed, impossible traditions and the rest of the thinking populace, who read the Bible but are under the influence of the Triune system.
The assertion that it was then after two generations that they began to call upon the name of the Lord implies a distancing from God and a necessity to do so through affliction.
Genesis 5:1-32 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. 3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: 4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: 5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
In this text we see the absolute longevity of the Partriarchs being displayed. Adam is alive at the birth of Seth and Seth’s son and his son and so on for generations. Moreover the breeding capacity of women was also extended in the longevity. The sons and daughters born to Adam and Eve are also extensive. Eve was bearing children long after she was 130 years old and indeed hundreds of years old.
The First day of the First month is a day of solemn assembly. It is a day of significance, as we see from Genesis 8:13.
There are six major events that commenced from the First day of the First month. This calendar long preceded the Law at Sinai.
The first event was the restoration of the Earth under Noah and the drying up of the waters, enabling the covers to be removed from the Ark (Gen. 8:13). This whole concept makes nonsense of the so-called Noahide Laws of the Pharisees, and we will deal with these issues separately.
Genesis 8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry. (KJV)
The presumption of innocence
The presumption of innocence is inherent in the Bible, and no man may be put to death or punished except on the testimony of two or three witnesses. It is throughout the Bible in all aspects, yet the Mishnah introduces the exact opposite concept in the Fourth Division: The Order of Damages Sanhedrin 4:1 E(2).
In property cases they begin [argument] with the case either for acquittal or for conviction, while in capital cases they begin only with the case for acquittal and not for conviction.
(cf. Jacob Neusner, The Mishnah A New Translation, Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 1988, p. 589)
In all cases, the presumption of innocence demands that the charges be given, then heard and established at the mouth of two witnesses. The accused must then be given due time to rebut before a tribunal of appointed justice, which is unbiased in all aspects and not in respect of persons. During the Temple period, property cases were heard by a tribunal of three judges and all capital charges were heard by a minimum of twenty-three of the Sanhedrin, as the Mishnah itself shows (ibid., D (1)). Thus every decision in property matters was appealable to a tribunal, if delegated for preliminary hearings. All capital cases had to be heard by the minimum of twenty-three of the Sanhedrin itself because it involved the death penalty. Appeal times were allowed in case of witnesses and evidence also from these early times (Mishnah, ibid.).
For this reason the insidious assertions of the so-called Noahide Laws, which Judaism is attempting to establish from the Talmud, allowing conviction by one witness, are contrary to justice and the Laws of God. The ideas and practices are insidious, unbiblical and unjust. These same unjust concepts underlie modern European legal systems, where people are guilty until proven innocent. Lists of suspects can be compiled and disseminated without trial, or proof, or any justice. The United Kingdom has adopted this iniquity among its law-enforcement systems without a murmur. The results and reforms of the English Civil War and subsequent times are being lost without a whimper through puerile reasoning. People with access to the files can destroy their enemies, and there is no justice. For this reason, and the murders and injustice it allowed, the Holy Roman Empire was destroyed, and the Revolution changed Europe in 1850 (cf. Malachi Martin, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Church, Secker and Warburg, London, 1982, pp. 250-256, et seq.). In its way, Christianity had perverted the law as much or more than had rabbinical Judaism. The Law of God has never been faithfully implemented except under Moses and David and the occasional short restoration. Christianity has never even been tried, let alone properly tested.
In the same way, when Qasim incorrectly Muhammad (which was the council of the elders of the Church of God in Arabia) tried to re-introduce the Law of God, and the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs tried to implement it, it was undermined and destroyed. Islam was as short-lived as the Davidic kingdom. Islam was destroyed by the Hadith, just as the Councils had destroyed Christianity and the tradition, and the Talmud had destroyed the Law and developed Judaism. “Babylon” has reigned for thousands of years: it is the religion of the god of this world, who will reign until the coming restoration.
The Final Delusion
The Strong Delusion is developed in the last days with all signs and wonders.
The basis of how the Christian and other elements as well as the Jews themselves will probably be deceived is by means of the Noahide Laws and this mixed religion as developed by this Last Pope and the cronies at the Vatican (see the paper The Last Pope (No. 288)).
This Apostasy has been established and accepted by the papacy so that the Sabbath may be the right only of Jews and not of Christians and thus the Jews will enforce the Hillel calendar and their traditions. The keeping of the true Sabbaths, New Moons and Holy Days by the Church of God will be persecuted and made almost impossible. Whilst the Christians will be acknowledged as having the right to keep the Sunday and their traditions, the remnant of Islam will keep the Friday preparation evening for prayer, falsely called the Juma’ah as a Sabbath of Islam, when it was not and is not a Sabbath but merely the preparation for the Sabbath (see the papers The Sabbath in Qur’an (No. 274) at: http://www.ccg.org/english/s/p274.html and The Juma’ah: Preparing for the Sabbath (No. 285) at: http://www.ccg.org/english/s/p285.html.
Thus with a basic set of rules that pretend to be applicable under the Laws of God but which ignore most of them and restrict the Sabbath to Apostate Judaism, the strong delusion will be given to many and the Man of Sin will become entrenched in Antinomian heresy and supported by Apostate Christianity and Apostate and corrupted Judaism (see The Man of Sin and the Apostasy (No. 299E)).
