In the essay, "Which Laws", I told you that the Gentiles are required to live by the Noahide Laws but I want to give you a warning about something I have seen on the Internet concerning those Noahide Laws. A number of years ago, the people who have been strictly adhering to the Noahide Laws since the days of Noah turned to the Jewish rabbi's and asked those rabbi's to expand on the Noahide Laws the way Torah expands on the 10 Commandments. In reading through those expanded Noahide Laws, I quickly realized that the wrong rabbi's answered that call and you need to be aware of this.
It is very easy to tell when a corrupt rabbi or gentile religious leader has answered the call of expanding the Noahide Laws. In Deuteronomy, God said TWICE that you shall not add to or take away from the Law. Deuteronomy 4:2 "You shall not add to the Word that I command you, nor shall you subtract from it, to observe the commandments of Yahweh, your God, that I command you." And Deuteronomy 12:32 (in the Christian Bible but 13:1 in the Jewish Chumash - all they did was make the chapter separation at a different point but didn't change the scriptures otherwise) "The entire Word that I command you, that you shall observe to do; you shall not add to it and you shall not subtract from it." It is important to note that, any time God gives the same command twice, He is emphasizing that command telling you He really means it, pay attention.
Why is this Law so important?
This Law is so very important for two very significant reasons. The first of which is to prevent the religious leaders from corrupting God's Law by making changes to that Law in violation of the Law. The second reason is because, when you add to or take away from God's Law, you are saying you can make the Law better than God made it and, therefore, are superior to God, which is elevating yourself above God and an act of blasphemy. This particular act of blasphemy is the first and worst sin or crime committed by Satan when he tried to elevate himself above God. Any human who adds to or takes away from God's Law is committing the same crime by elevating themselves above God which is the ultimate insult to God.
It is also important to note that God commanded us to obey God and His Laws and never once commanded us to obey any religious leader. Why?
Because God knew there would be corrupt religious leaders who would add to and take away from God's Law teaching you to commit crimes against God's Law. Now, if God had told you to obey the rabbi's or any other religious leaders and you obeyed such a corrupt religious leader, violating the Law, then it would be partly God's fault you had sinned or committed that crime because He would have ordered you to obey the religious leader when that corrupt religious leader ordered you to disobey God. Therefore, not one time in God's Law did God order you to obey the religious leaders but to instead obey God and His Law.
It is important to understand that when a rabbi or any religious leader teaches you what I call Pure Torah or the Law and nothing but the Law, and you obey what the rabbi is teaching, you are not obeying that rabbi but you are obeying the Law and God. When the rabbi teaches anything other than Pure Torah and you obey it, you are obeying the rabbi. You should never obey the religious leader but should always obey God and His Law.
Do you see the difference? It is very important that you see the difference between obeying God and His Law and obeying the religious leaders when they teach you something other than the Law. If you do not see this, then you must read the above 2 paragraphs again. Obeying God and the Law comes first before obeying anyone else, period.
So how can you tell when a corrupt rabbi has answered the call to expand the Noahide Laws given to Noah following the Flood? Quite simple, they add a little law to the Law, which is a violation of the Law, saying you must obey the rabbi's, which is an act of blasphemy elevating themselves above God. With this law, that you must obey the rabbi's, they are telling you that you must obey the rabbi's first and foremost above God and His Laws. This is a very clear attempt by corrupt, power mad rabbi's to try and give themselves absolute power over the Gentiles.
Get it straight, that no God fearing religious leader will tell you that you must obey them, they will always tell you that you must obey God and the Law. Any religious leader who tells you that you must obey them, just turn and walk away because you are dealing with a corrupt and power mad person who is committing an act of blasphemy by elevating himself above God.
You also need to understand that, if you obey such an evil person, you are also committing an act of blasphemy by elevating this power mad person above God. Therefore, you are not permitted to obey such an evil person but are instead required to obey, first and foremost, God and God's Law.
The first two people God killed for adding to His Law were two of Aaron's sons on the very first day of the anointing of the Tabernacle when they carried incense with them they were not supposed to carry. By doing this, they were adding to the Law and elevating themselves above the Law and God was forced to make them an example showing that not even the highest of the religious leaders are above the Law and above God. God punished even Moses and Aaron when they disobeyed God showing that not even the two highest religious leaders were above the Law.
So, what should the rabbi's have done in expanding on the Noahide Laws?
Easy, they should have set down with Torah and made a list of all the Laws which pertain directly to the seven Noahide Laws and nothing else. In other words, if the rabbi's had done the job right and not committed blasphemy, you would see the seven Noahide Laws with a list of scriptures under each Noahide Law which pertains to those seven Laws. You would see scriptures or verses from Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy and nothing else because adding anything else would be an act of blasphemy, elevating themselves above God.
Therefore, if you want to know which of the Torah Laws a Gentile must obey, all you have to do is sit down with the Torah or first 5 books of the Bible beginning with Exodus and make a list under each Noahide Law of all the scriptures which pertain to those 7 Noahide Laws. It is just that simple and the rabbi's know it but permitted corrupt rabbi's to get away with blasphemy by writing the rabbi's own additions to the Noahide Laws. Under the corrupted Noahide Laws you will find very few, if any, scriptures but man made laws written by the corrupt rabbi's, especially the man made law requiring you to obey rabbi's instead of God's Law. If you obey those corrupt Noahide Laws, you are committing blasphemy by elevating those corrupt rabbi's above God because, after all, you are elevating the corrupt rabbi's laws above God's Laws.
