On QOLASIYM: Chapter 2 - Part Five

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at 12:00 AM

We continue …

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:15

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

The historical record as set forth in the Besor’oth gives us several details of how this was accomplished.  We begin here:

Yahuchanon (John) 8:52-59

Then said the Yahudiym unto him, Now we know that you have a devil. Avraham is dead, and the prophets; and you say, If a man guards my word, he shall never taste of death. 53 Are you greater than our father Avraham, which is dead? And the prophets are dead: whom do you make yourself? 54 YAHUSHA answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honours me; of whom ye say, that he is your ELOHIYM: 55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and guard his word. 56 Your father Avraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. 57 Then said the Yahudiym unto him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Avraham? 58 YAHUSHA said unto them, Amein, Amein, I say unto you, Before Avraham was, EHYAH.  59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but YAHUSHA hid himself, and went out of the Temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Amein, Amein, amer atah: lopheni Avraham, EHYAH (I AM).

Now, of course, this could be a claim of deity – which is MASHIACH saying I AM.  Yet, it can also mean that before Avraham, ELOHIYM as I AM existed; that YAHUAH predates Avraham. Nonetheless, the Parashiym picked up rocks. 

More importantly, the record establishes that the veil separating the Holy of Holies did come down at his death.  His death, being accomplished on the day of the preparation (Pecach) at the very hour and the very minute of the death of last sacrificial lamb, when the Leviyim would pronounce that the sacrifices for the day were finished, so he cried out “it is finished.”  Further, let’s take a look at this prophecy:

Mattithyahu 24:1-2

And YAHUSHA went out, and departed from the Temple: and his Talmidiym came to him for to show him the buildings of the Temple. 2 And YAHUSHA said unto them, See ye not all these things? Amein I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

Now, whether it is accepted by the modern world or not, every stone was in fact removed – every stone of the second temple, which had been built over the top of Shalomah’s (Solomon’s) first temple, which was of course in the City of David, not in the modern Roman / Byzantine fortress of Jerusalem now called Old Jerusalem. 

There is a substantial body of evidence indicating that the temple mount is really the Roman fortress Antonia, which overlooked the Temple.  Coins have been found under the Western Wall dating from 20 A.D. indicating that wall went up in the First Century A.D. commensurate with the Roman occupation of the adamah qoresh (Holy Land) following the reign of Herod the Great, the last indigenous ruler of the region. 

Say what you will.  There is no second temple currently existing, and there hasn’t been a daily oblation since its destruction.  It is MASHIACH who spoiled principalities and powers.  It is MASHIACH who made a show of them openly, dying on the cross as a common criminal.  It is MASHIACH who then triumphed not only the practice of the blood sacrifice, but also triumphed over the godship of Augustus Caesar, and all of his successors.  For as Caesar had declared himself god in the very year of the birth of MASHIACH, so the birth of the king who would overtake the entire Roman Empire occurred simultaneously.

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:16-17

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day, or of the New Moon, or of the Shabbat: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come for the body of MASHIACH.

This means you Constantine!  Does this mean that suddenly you are free to blow off the commands to eat only clean foods?  Does this mean you can drink blood if you so desire?  Does this mean you should forget about the timing of the months, and the years?  Does this mean you can forget about keeping the Sabbath?  Answer: No. No. No. No.

Let’s start with clean foods.  I summarize thusly: the animals which YAH has provided for consumption are non-coprophagiastic.  The animals that he has declared unclean are animals which practice coprophagia.  Look it up.  If there was such a thing as declaration making these animals clean, then these animals would no longer engage in this practice.  I personally have not witnessed any change.

Drinking blood exposes your system to foreign DNA and blood-born illnesses.  One should carefully consider whether this exposure is warranted under any circumstances.

If you take no mind of the New Moon, then you do not know the timing of the calendar established by YAH. 

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 1:14

And ELOHIYM said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for appointed Feasts, and for days, and years:

When you consider your Gregorian calendar, tell me of the natural occurrences that lend credence to the first day of the month, other than that Gregory told you so.  Tell me of the relevance of the moon to the first or fifteenth day of the arbitrary calendar of today.  How is it that time goes backward from an arbitrarily selected day during the lifetime of MASHIACH? Do you really believe that people counted backward? What exactly is it in the natural world that fixes the new day at midnight?  Can you point to something that someone could deduce, if he were not indoctrinated in the calendar of Vicarious Fileo Dei?  Speak, those of you who would criticize those who follow a New Moon. 

I submit that you cannot understand prophecy at all without understanding first the calendar of YAH.  How does Sha’ul put it?  These feasts, these new moons, these Sabbaths, are a shadow of things to come for the body of MASHIACH.  For those of you who remain in Roman captivity, tell me what this shadow is?  Is it not a shadow of things to come? Isn’t that what he says? 

Understanding the seven feasts of YAHUAH as set forth in Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23 are the first step to understanding this shadow of things to come.  Once this is understood, the talmidiym will see that the first advent of MASHIACH – one where he was born on Sukkoth, circumcised on Simcha Torah, died on Pecach, entombed in Matsah, and resurrected just prior to First Fruits. 

As for the Sabbaths of YAH – they are the wedding ring of the bride of MASHIACH.  The weekly Sabbath begins on Friday evening at sundown, and continues until Saturday evening at sundown.  Very simple, you see.  The annual Sabbath is the seventh year of a seven year cycle, and of course, after seven sevens, the year of Jubilee is declared.  These Sabbaths are for you to rest in your ELOHIYM.  See what you can do.

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:18

Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Don’t get tricked into putting on humility and the worshipping of angels, which has been brought to you by the commandment and doctrine of men. 

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:19

And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increases with the increase of YAHUAH.

This is a direct reference to the Sephirot, and the twenty-two bands which connect the radiances of the Rosh and the radiances of the Guph. See the book Sitrei Torah for an extensive discussion.

Qolasiym (Colossians) 2:20-23

Wherefore if ye be dead with HAMASHIACH from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to dogma, 21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23 Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

Here, the context is given in even more detail.  The dogma which is rejected is specifically denoted as the commandments and doctrines of men.  Am I wrong about this?  This language is contained within the same sentence.  Are the commandments and doctrines of men the Torah?  Who gave the Torah?

What then, was nailed to the cross?

Even the Mishneh however is given some credit, Sha’ul saying that this worship of the discipline of the mind, the practice of humility, and the neglecting of the body, at least does not serve the flesh.  Well, okay.  Yet, those in MASHIACH are called away from the Mishneh – called away from the doctrines of men (such as the rituals of the denominations in Christianity, including arbitrary food laws that are not in scripture, and the practice of feasts which honor other gods, deities and spirits), the traditions, the philosophy, and the vain deceit of men who practice something other than that which is written and ordained.
