The divine law is a transcript of Yahuwah’s character. It reveals His innermost thoughts and feelings to be pure, holy and loving. The law of Yah, like His throne, will stand forever, never to be altered or set aside.
Satan has led many to break Yahuwah’s law through ignorance or the assumption that Yahushua’s death on the cross nullified the law.
Yahuwah’s great heart of love still yearns over His deceived children. In mercy, He has sent a warning for the church of the final generation. It is called the Laodicean Message:
And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of [Yah]: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked.” (Revelation 3:14-17, NKJV)
The Church of the final generation has been blessed with great light. As a result, she boasts that no additional light is needed – she knows it all!
Heaven sees things differently. Yahuwah sees that there are many errors and traditions, founded in paganism, to which His people still cling. The Heavenly cure for the blind Laodicean condition is found, as always, in the Saviour:
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. (Revelation 3:18-19)
Because spiritual pride coupled with spiritual blindness is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the last-generation church, all who would be saved must accept by faith that the message of the True Witness applies to them individually – even though they feel that they are already humble, sincere and repentant.
Once this message is accepted by faith, the Great Physician at once begins to heal. He provides the gold tried in the fire, which symbolizes faith and love. He covers the nakedness with His own righteousness and applies the divine eye salve to eyes blinded by error and assumption.
Gifted with spiritual insight, the humble, repentant believer is at last able to see not only his true condition, but the immensity of the law of Yah. “I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad. O how love I thy law! It is my meditation all the day.” (Psalms 119:96, 97, KJV)
The believer’s constant prayer is: “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:18)
As the mind is enlightened to understand the law of Yah, the believer is led to see that the divine law is perpetually binding upon all peoples throughout all time. It was not nailed to the cross, nor was it in any way “done away with” by the death of Yahushua.
Scripture reveals that just before the Second Coming, Yahuwah will raise up a special group of people that will, through faith in the merits of the Saviour, be enabled to perfectly keep the law of Yah. They are the 144,000. The Bible describes this final generation as “Those who keep the commandments of Yahuwah and the faith of Yahushua.” (See Revelation 14:12.)
The fact that they are distinguished because they keep Yah’s commandments implies a contrast to others who do not. As the first group of people on earth who have fully surrendered to Yahuwah, allowing the Saviour to live out His life in them, they are described as:
“These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to [Yahuwah] and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of [Yahuwah].” (Revelation 14:4, 5, NKJV)
The 144,000 abide in Yahushua, and He in them. As the Saviour perfectly kept the divine law in every particular, so do they, since He is living IN them.
“Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin.” (1 John 3:3-6)
The divine law embraces much more than the 10 Commandments, spoken in splendor from Mt. Sinai. It includes statute law as well, which provides a broad application of the 10 Commandment law.
The divine law is eternal and binding. It shall stand forever. “Whatever [Elohim] does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it.” (Ecclesiastes 3:14, NKJV)
Nothing is to be added to Yahuwah’s law and nothing set aside from it as no longer binding. Scripture strictly charges: “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of [Yahuwah your Elohim] which I command you.” (Deuteronomy 4:2, KJV)
The 144,000 restore all of the divine law, including the statutes which command the observance of annual worship days, called “Feasts of Yahuwah” in the Bible. These feasts, which are listed in Leviticus 23, are to be statutes “Forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.” (See Leviticus 23:14, 21, 31 and 41.)
This work of the 144,000, to restore all of Yahuwah’s law, is foretold in Scripture and it is clearly linked to worship:
Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, From doing your pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy day of [Yahuwah] honorable, and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in [Yahuwah]; and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, the mouth of [Yahuwah] has spoken it. (Isaiah 58:12-14)
The divine law commands observance of the feasts of Yahuwah, in addition to the weekly Sabbaths. Like Elijah and John the Baptist before them, the 144,000 honor Yahuwah by obeying His law and calling upon others to repent and return to the worship of Yahuwah on His holy days.
The Old Testament closes with a prophecy of those will do the work of calling for repentance shortly before the Second Coming of Yahushua.
Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. . . . Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of [Yahuwah]. (Malachi 3:1, 4:4, 5)
The fact that the command is given to “remember the Law of Moses” is clear evidence that it has been forgotten. But the charge does not stop there. It explicitly goes on to include statute law as well.
The restoration of worship on all of Heaven’s appointed holy days is one sign of the nearness of the end of the world.

The 144,000 will keep the feasts of Yahuwah, because they are law keepers, not law breakers. The law of Yahuwah is very precious to them, and they honor their Maker by giving Him loving obedience.
He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (1 John 2:4)
The true test of discipleship is whether or not one obeys.
By this we know that we love the children of [Yah], when we love [Yah] and keep His commandments. For this is the love of [Yah], that we keep His commandments. (1 John 5:2, 3)
The 144,000, humble repentant believers from the final generation, will keep all the commandments of Yahuwah. They love much because they have been forgiven much and their love is demonstrated through full surrender and perfect obedience, regardless of the cost.
An incomparable reward awaits all who will seek the True Witness for healing from the Laodicean condition and join with Heaven in restoring the honor of Yahuwah’s law: “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” (Revelation 3:21)
The message of the True Witness is still calling, warning all to repent. Choose to believe that the Saviour knows your heart condition better than you know yourself. Surrender to Him. Become a new creature through His grace.
Be a Repairer of the Breach, a Restorer of Paths to Dwell In. You, too, may overcome as Yahushua overcame and be seated with Him on His throne.
