Anyone who knows the animosity in the air at the time of the Civil War, knows what it cost Abraham Lincoln to free the slaves. But his death was not in vain. The slaves were freed. But before Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, there was in fact another  emancipation for them.  There is a Hebrew word for this kind of emancipation.  It is  niftar. If Slave Master Simon Legree had found his slave in Uncle Tom's CASKET instead of Uncle Tom's CABIN, he would have found the slave freed.    Death had made the slave niftar (freed, dead).  A dead slave is a former slave.  He is free.

 

It would have been futile for Simon Legree to go into the funeral parlor and order the slave back to the plantation.  No bull whip, no threat, no death threat (Tom was ALREADY dead with his Liberator who had died FOR him, who had died to FREE him), no enticement, no allurement, no penalty, no...nothing, would have shackled the former slave back into his previous life.  We sometime use the expression, "I am dead to that sort of thing." Or we say, "As far as that sort of thing is concerned, I might as well be dead." If a person no longer loves us, we say that that person acts "dead toward us." Or if the dentist makes our jaw numb, we say we are dead TO the pain. Listen. Understand this. Since Uncle Tom had died TO slavery, how could he live IN slavery any longer (Ro 6:2)? Death had freed him.  The freedman would never obey Slavemaster Simon Legree again and the Slave Master would never again reign over him (Ro 6:12).

 

When we come to trust in Moshiach, Hashem reckons us dead with Moshiach and freed from the bondage of our old sinful life.  When a Sin slave is born again, he dies to his old slavery and comes alive in the Ruach Hakodesh and is set free.  From Plantation A to Plantation Z, from Plantation Adultery to Plantation Xenophobia or Racial Prejudice…he never has to be shackled in that joyless denigration again.  He is free. Whether he is Jewish or not, he is free. He whom the Moshiach sets free is free indeed.  Old things, old appetites, have passed away. Sharks smell blood and lions crave meat from the kill. But lambs have been given an appetite for new green, green grass. If anyone is in Moshiach he is a new creature. The old has gone, the new has come! The old lion with his morbid cravings has passed away. Behold, a new lamb is born! Born of the Spirit, born from above! The old carnal obsession has gone. The new has come: A new mind, a lev chadash, a new spirit, a ruach chadasha, a bria chadasha, a new creation (these are Biblical expressions found in the Tanakh). The natural man with his lusts has passed away. Now there is a born again new creature! The mohel knife of regeneration has cut away the downward pull of the flesh. Along with our mikveh there is a bris (not made with hands)! The one thus begotten is no longer a child of the devil but is one of Moshiach's Bnei HaMilah (Pp 3:3) and has been set by a creating and begetting G-d into a new existence. The Father in His mercy begets us into a new existence, by the will of G-d. Just as one can't be born without a human father, so one cannot be born again without the Heavenly Father. Once one is born again and has entered into a new existence, the Ruach Hakodesh now has someone to speak to, someone now with spiritual eyes to see and someone also now with spiritual ears to hear: a new creature! And the new creature thus spoken to has Ruach Hakodesh power to resist the devil and turn away from any remnant of flesh uncircumcision uncleanness left this side of glorification! At one time, the natural man had no taste for the food that the spiritual man eats. Now, because of a new birth, the new spiritual man has food to eat that the old natural man could never have known about without regeneration. The old lion knows nothing about the green morsels of taste that the lamb grazes on. And what is born of the old lioness does not crave the lamb's delights. What is born of flesh is flesh. What is born of the old fallen humanity is fallen and has no taste for the Word of G-d. The Word of G-d is foolishness to the natural man. However, newborn lambs crave the pure milk of the Word of G-d. For what is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Ruach Hakodesh is regenerated spirit. You must be born again. We are talking about a metamophosis and a new creature with eyes to see and ears to hear and a craving to drink the pure milk of the inerrant Word of G-d.

So by faith we reckon ourselves dead to Slave Master Sin and alive to Slave Liberator Moshiach Ben Dovid. Ro 6:11-12 He gives us a new freedom, a new identity, a new relationship. 2C 5:17 Whereas before, in our former condition, we were hopeless slaves of Slave Master Sin, now we are the servants of the Resurrected Moshiach, Moshiach Ben Dovid, raised up with him in the newness of life. Co 3:1-3. This is called regeneration. For the believer, a death, a discontinuity with the old age, has occurred, and this means old things have passed away. When you study Romans chapter six you learn about the subject of mortification of the "old adam in me," mortification of the flesh. See on the mortification of the flesh Mt 5:29; Ro 6:6; Ro 13:14; Ga 5:16; Ga 5:24; Col 3:5; 1Pe 2:11; 1Pe 4:2 (compare 1Pe 4:2 and Mt 7:21 where we see there is no true regeneration salvation for the unrepentant libertine who claims to be a follower of Moshiach). There is a boim foon mesiros nefesh ("tree of self sacrifice" that is, to use a yiddish and hebrew expression, בוים פון מסירות נפש) that you must pick up and carry in order to mortify the old man and follow Moshiach as the new regenerated man or else you cannot be his talmid (Lk 14:27; Lk 9:23; Ga 6:14). Without regeneration you might attempt some religious mortification but it would never work. However, since you are regenerated, the new man CAN INDEED put to death the deeds of the flesh and live (Ro 8:13). You DO THIS VERY THING by the power of the Holy Spirit (Ro 8:13). When your mind is under attack you can pray IN the Holy Spirit. And you also turn to Romans chapter 6 and read about the regenerated believer's burial in a watery grave WITH Moshiach in terms of ZIKH GETOYLV'T IN DER MIKVEH and about a new creature being freed from Slave Master Sin's indentured service (6:22). You can read about how it is no longer the "old me" who lives, for a death has occurred and there is a discontinuity in terms of the old blind adamic humanity I once was part of. This means I still have a carnal nature because glorification hasn't happened yet, but as a new creature, I am aware that in my carnal nature there is no good thing (Ro 7:18), that in fact my carnal nature can become Satan's ally, so I hate what is evil and make no provision for it. Rather, arising in newness of life, my eyes now on the Bar Enosh coming on the Clouds of Glory (Daniel 7:13-14), I exit the mikveh tomb to disrobe from the grave clothes of the old adam/man and put on the new adam/man, Moshiach Adoneinu. The old dying world with its allurements is growing strangely unattractive. The world is not the same place. Its tawdry amusements are no longer amusing. And this also means that all the powers and enduements of the Olam Haba are becoming available so that such a Heaven-bound pilgrim as we are describing is on the way now to the Olam Haba eternal home. For Moshiach knocks on the tomb of your stony heart. Then Moshiach comes in, and the Ruach Hakodesh comes in with Moshiach, and you are born again, and given spiritual eyes and ears to comprehend the Word of G-d. One of these days, according to Daniel 12:2, you will be in the grave. And Moshiach Ben Dovid will call you out of the grave. But as far as serving Slavemaster Sin is concerned, you are already in that grave. For the watery grave of the mikveh means death to the old life. For you were buried in a watery grave with Moshiach Ben Dovid. This is a point of strength as far as moral probity is concerned, for there are no wild parties going on in graveyards: the buried people aren't pouring drinks and smoking dope. They have been buried. But from the day of your tevilah in Moshiach's mikveh mayim, you have been buried together (Ro 6:4) with Moshiach Ben Dovid. And your old life is sealed in his kever (Isa 53:9 "he made his grave with the wicked [you]"), because now your old life is finished and over and done with, and you are beginning to walk in the newness of life in the Ruach Hakodesh.


OLIVER STONE'S FILM ENTITLED "WORLD TRADE CENTER" TELLS THE STORY ABOUT HOW AN HISPANIC PORT AUTHORITY POLICEMAN IS BURIED WITH MOSHIACH, SUPERNATURALLY RESCUED BY MOSHIACH, AND RAISED TO LIFE BY MOSHIACH, SHOWING THAT EVEN IN THE MIDST OF SEEMINGLY HOPELESS DISASTER, ROMANS 6:4 "WE HAVE BEEN BURIED WITH MOSHIACH" IS TRUE AND SHOULD BE AN INCENTIVE FOR EVERYONE TO SEEK THE GRACE OF HASHEM AND MOSHIACH'S FORGIVENESS, MAKING TESHUVA BY IMMERSING THEMSELVES AS NEW-BORN BELIEVERS INTO MOSHIACH'S MIKVEH MAYIM.

 

The wages that Slave Master Sin pays is eternal death, the endless curse of Hashem.  But the free gift that Ribbono shel Olam gives is Chayei Olam.Ro 6:23

 

TEXT.-- Ro 6:7: For he that is dead is freed from sin. [This means freed from sin's deadly allurement, freed from sin's deadly bondage, and freed from sin's deadly divine condemnation, since we have already died with Moshiach, been buried with Moshiach in Moshiach's mikveh mayim, and have already risen with him to live a new life in the favor of Hashem.]


 

When we look at the repentant ganav (Lk 23:39-43) on the tree, we see someone who is "as good as dead" (Ro 4:19) until he found Moshiach. If you are a believer, this is your testimony (see virtual tract room) and therewith you overcome the devil (Rv 12:11). When we look at the repentant ganav on the tree, we see someone who is put to death on Moshiach's Etz. We also see someone who has the victory which is our Hashem-given faith (see 1Yn 5:5). We also might see ourselves, if we ask Hashem to reveal the truth to us. Think about this repentant ganav! If Satan tries to lure the ganav to break the Eighth Commandment now, the ganav's hands and feet will not co-operate. They have the same mallet and spike that holds Moshiach. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our Messianic faith. Satan's lures and bondages and accusations to condemnation are ineffectual. Knowing this that our old man, our old humanity (in Adam) has been put to death with Moshiach so that the essence of the old sinful human condition might be done away with, so that we might no longer serve that old Master Thief in bondage to Satan, namely, Slave Master Sin. This is why those who are born again, who can confess the Bar Enosh from the Atik Yomin, do not go on sinning. It is no longer they who live but Moshiach who lives in them. And Sin no longer reigns in the old man, but behold there is a regenerated inner man. On the regenerated inner man, see Ro 7:22 and Eph 3:16 and 2Co 4:16. In Romans chapter 7, we find the inner man (Ephesians 3:16), that is, the regenerate spiritual man, which is called the "mind," because the Holy Spirit has made the believer's mind agree with the words of the "good" Book (I Corinthians 2:13-16).  Indeed, if our "mind" is renewed, we have the mind of Moshiach.  When we yield to Moshiach, the true "I" can act: "I live, yet not I, but Moshiach who lives in me."  Daily I must remember that I died and was co-buried when Moshiach died (Romans 6:2-3) and Hashem considers me legally dead with him, reckoning my faith as right standing before Him (Romans 5:1) and no longer reckoning my past transgressions against me.  So as a believer with my ongoing daily struggle with sin, I need to remember my victory, that anyone born of G-d does not continually sin (1Y 5:18) and I must reckon myself dead unto sin and my members as dead and unusable as weapons of unrighteousness. 


Let's spell this out because it is vital for you to understand this. Look at page 932 again. Here is revealed the mystery of how to get to heaven. Notice we are not told the repentant ganav's name. There's a reason. You are supposed to supply your own. This is a picture of you as Hashem sees you. You say, "That's not me; I have never stolen anything." Oh no? You claim you have never broken the Eighth Commandment? See Deut 5:19. Really? Well, I have bad news for you. That very claim makes you guilty of breaking the Ninth Commandment. So you are guilty, correct? Come on. Spit it out. You are guilty, correct? Now let's start all over. Look at page 932 again. Notice once again that we are not told the repentant ganav's name. There's a reason. You are supposed to supply your own. Now here's the all important question: you HAVE repented, haven't you? You say, "What does that mean?" Well look at page 932 again. To repent means that you have come to the end of your rope and you have nothing to hold on to but Moshiach your only hope, so that you cry out to Moshiach as you see the repentant ganav doing here. Let me ask you a question: does the repentant ganav look up into heaven and say, "O Hashem, you see all my mitzvos; therefore, forget about Moshiach hanging here with me. He died in vain, as far as a tzaddik like me is concerned. Now, just look at my mitzvos. Oh yes, and listen to me recite the kri'at Shema. Impressive, all this merit of mine that I've accumulated just for this "death bed" moment, isn't it, Hashem? Now let me into heaven." Is that what the repentant ganav says? You say, "Wait! You're making too much of the Aseres HaDibros." Oh am I? Don't you understand that it was YOUR transgression, YOUR averos, of the Aseres HaDibros that resulted in Moshiach's death? Don't you understand what a curse is? The Aseres HaDibros are not Ten Suggestions, they are Ten Commandments. They carry covenant reprisals. These are called curses. Moshiach did not die because you occasionally have a "bad hair" day. Moshiach interposed himself to shield you from the curses that are pursuing you down through the generations. When you broke the commandment your transgression triggered the curse which resulted in Moshiach's having to take your curse, dying in your place (temurah), the just for the unjust, to bring you to G-d. Are you remorseful about this? Yes? Or No? Do you now see that even if you were the only person in the world, because you are a transgressor, Moshiach had to die, had to be the scapegoat to carry away the curse of your transgression, had to be cut off out of the Land of the Living, had to die for YOUR transgressions.

You say, "Wait a minute. What curse are you talking about? The curse of the Eighth and Ninth Commandments. Look at Joshua chapters 6 and 7 here and here and here. Achan broke the Eighth Commandmant by stealing some of the cherem spoils from the victory at Jericho. G-d was angry and consequently there was no victory in the camp. This dissembling ganav (Josh 7:11) brought the curse of defeat and death on himself. But we know the other ganav repented. Friend, like Achan, you are in the Valley of Trouble and your name is Disaster (Achar, 1Chronicles 2:7). You say, "All right. I want to repent. How do I do it? How do I make teshuvah?" Keep reading.


When we are buried in the mikveh mayim with Moshiach this turning point moment becomes a point of strength for us. Why? Because sometimes the Holy Spirit will remind us about when we are backslidden, and the Ruach Hakodesh will say, "You have died, but the old you is not fully buried (Ro 6:1-4). This grieves the Holy Spirit, so when they say Kaddish over you and scorn you, and you are tempted by the world, keep weeping through the Jewish funeral your relatives gave you until the funeral of your carnal nature and your deceitful heart is also complete. Your stubborn heart and its darkness, which is a cause for stumbling, must be buried, dust to dust, ashes to ashes. When the tempter comes, fast and pray and submerge your mind in Scripture and in Spiritual Music and reckon yourself sitting with Moshiach in his tomb (Isaiah 53:9) from Erev Shabbat to Yom Rishon, Moshiach dead FOR your sin, you dead TO your sin, then reckon yourself seated with Moshiach in heavenly places, and when the Devil comes to you...

WHEN YOU HAVE MADE ZIKH GE'TOYVL'T IN DER MIKVE TRUSTING IN THE NAME OF HASHEM AND MOSHIACH TZIDKEINU AND THE RUACH HAKODESH--ADONOI ECHAD--AND THE DEVIL THEN COMES WITH HIS ACCUSATIONS, HIS CONDEMNATIONS, HIS STRICTURES OF FALSE GUILT, HIS SATANIC TEMPTATIONS, HIS ZCHUS DECEPTIONS AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS AND ALL OF HIS OCCULT LIES, THEN IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO DRIVE BACK THE ADVERSARY OF YOUR NASHAMAH, BY REMINDING THE DEVIL ABOUT THE BLOOD OF MOSHIACH'S TEMURAH AND KAPARAH AND GEULAH WHEREIN YOU DIED AND WERE BURIED WITH YEHOSHUA/YESHUA IN THE TEVILAH KEVER (IMMERSION GRAVE) AND THEN DAVEN IN THE RUACH HAKODESH LESHONOT CHADASHOT AND DO A TZOM UNTIL SATAN SEES THAT HE CANNOT CORRUPT YOU, THAT YOU HAVE RESISTED HIM...THEN MEDITATE ON PAGES 735 TO 745 OF THIS SEFER KODESH...SO WILL YOU GET THE VICTORY

I once drove past a snow-covered frozen cemetery, and I had a vision. Shammashim and Zekenim wearing shrouds of death were digging a grave. I was 12 years old and it was time for my tevilah kever. See Isaiah 53:9 on Moshiach's kever. They placed a coffin in the grave hole and commanded me to get in. I drew back in fear. Then they relented and said, "You can take your Bible, but nothing more, except its Author, the lover of your nefesh." So I was buried with Moshiach the lover of my nefesh (Ro 6:4; Shir Hashirim 1:12-13), who had warned me not to love the world or the things of the world, but to guard my heart and to keep myself from elilim (idols). Some girls guard their heart: they get a 'crush' on a boy and suppress it, temporarily or permanently. But with Moshiach our burial partner we must not have a passing 'crush' but burning tested true love, for Moshiach alone shares each believer's casket that empties out into chayei olam (eternal life). If you want to know how you should love Moshiach, look here and here and here and here and here. The repentant ganav's eyes were on Moshiach Tzidkeinu, not on himself, not on his own supposed merits or mitzvos, not on anything else but Moshiach Tzidkeinu. Like the moon facing the Sun, like Elect Israel facing the Bar Enosh, so Moshiach arises with healing in his wings, and by his wounds we are healed, for He is the Ohr HaOlam that is our Light, for we have no Light but that which shines in the inerrant Scriptures from Hashem through Moshiach in the Ruach Hakodesh. Like the moon that has no light in itself but only reflects the Sun, so we have no righteousness in ourselves but only the righteousness of Moshiach Tzidkeinu when he took over our sins, when he led me out through my mikveh Exodus and when he made His purchase of my redemption and how He bought me and made the temurah (exchange), that is, my receiving my justification through Moshiach Tzidkeinu (Jeremiah 23:5-6) and Moshiach taking over my sins, and how Moshiach carried me out of death and even through the wilderness of my old nature toward my new life in Him. Now read about the trials in translating. When you are tempted, you are not alone.

Why your soul's salvation hangs on the inerrancy of the Bible


STOP EVERYTHING AND LOOK AT THIS NUMBER #1 GOOGLE RATED MESSIANIC VIDEO





Which six words are you going to believe? Six words from the Tanakh or six words from the Talmud? Blatant disregard for the inerrant Tanakh
will cost the soul of the one making deathbed viddui
(confession of sin) of these words from the Talmud,

"May my death make kaparah for all my sins." rather than "T’hei mot haMoshiach kaparah al kol avonotai" "May the death of Moshiach make kaparah for all my sins."
If the following six words from the Talmud
תְּהֵא מִיתָתִי כַּפָּרָה עַל כָּל עֲוֹנוֹתָי. [סנהדרין פרק ו,ב]
are erroneously preferred to these six words from the Tanakh it will be to the eternal lose of the nefesh
כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי
Let's repeat this so that there can be no confusion or question. There are two confessions here. Each contains six little words. One Jewish confession is the holy inspired Word of G-d and one confession is not the inspired Word of G-d. Confession of the Talmud instead of the Tanakh will cost one his immortal soul. Here are the words from the Talmud:
"May my death make kaparah for all my sins." Here are the Words from the inerrant Tanakh: "Kee neegzar may-eretz chayyim mee-pay-sha amee." So from these inerrant words we confess "T’hei mot haMoshiach kaparah al kol avonotai," which translates into English: "May the death of Moshiach make kaparah for all my sins."

Now if
תְּהֵא מִיתָתִי כַּפָּרָה עַל כָּל עֲוֹנוֹתָי. [סנהדרין פרק ו,ב]
is erroneously preferred to these following six Hebrew words from the Tanakh, then that fatal choice will result in the eternal lose of the nefesh:
כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי






So we primordially and perennially,
with disastrous consequences for ourselves,
forsake the words of G-d and receive the contradictory words of HaSatan.

By the time we get to 2 Corinthians chp 11 we see that Satan wants to corrupt and ruin by means of Bible-opposing "knowledge," the so-called "deeper things of Satan." Instead of staying with the Word that was preached, the temptation of the Corinthians was to "go beyond what was written" and to be seduced by extra-Biblical knowledge (see Gen 3:5). Notice that Eve's "Bible" only has seven words in it.
The seven words in her "Bible" warn that death will be the result of her moral autonomy, of her getting her "knowledge" of good and evil, in other words, from a certain lethal tree rather than from the "Bible" her husband has been given wherein the meager content of seven words ("oo-meh-ETZ ha-DAH-aht tov va-rah loh toh-KHOHL mee-mehn-NOO" ...of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat from it) will nevertheless tell her how to live and not die. But in the hands of the evil Serpent this "Bible" can be twisted and used to deceive her so that she hands herself over to a rival authority, a Bible-opposing authority, with fatal results. Anything that rivals and opposes G-d is an idol, and in the Book of Revelation we see that the believers will give up their lives as martyrs rather than compromise with the idolatrous religion and way of life of the pagan society of the last days. It is fair to say that one cannot be a believer unless one repents from all idolatry. Whoever tries to keep his idolatrous life will lose it.
