Moses wrote, by YHWH’s dictation, the first five books of the Bible, aka the Torah. When people refer to Moses words, they are speaking of the Torah, YHWH’s instructions. Our Messiah is called the Word Made [into] Flesh, or the living Torah. So, if the Old Testament, and specifically the Torah, is done away with and irrelevant since Jesus (Yeshua) came, then why would He say this Himself…?
“For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” ~~ John 5: 46-47 (New King James Version)
“If you really believed Moshe, you would believe me; because it was about me that he wrote. But if you don’t believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?” ~~ John 5: 46-47 (Complete Jewish Bible)
Mother’s Day is not always a happy time. It can be terribly difficult for those who would like to be, but are not (for whatever the reason) Moms. Even just the grocery store cashier saying “Happy Mother’s Day” in the assumption you are one, can be heartbreaking. Although I am glad for this day as a time to honor my own Mom and the other Moms we know, it is also a day of sadness and emptiness. You see, I am one of those “childless moms” out there. On this day, please take at least a minute or two to think about and pray for those who are not blessed with children, those who find their heart in their throat when someone says HMD.
