Anarchy Vs Submission Part 4 (My Writing Process For The Submission 101 Curriculum)

This will be my last post on this subject before I go into recording mode this week...

While outlining this curriculum, I ran into some hard questions that I know a person like me would raise during the study. Like I said earlier, this whole submission issue is a really tough issue to talk about in today's culture. To say that you have to submit to God can imply that God has a law that you must submit to. And if he does have a law...what law is it? Is it the same law that was given to and through Moses? Then you run into the law or grace thing.

Whether or not the Torah applies to us today is a question that not many of us want to try to answer. Yet it affects every part of our lives. Because the law dictated how we should live in so many areas of our life we have to come to this crossroads: did God redeem us from a strict standard so that we could live by a more vague one or has He provided a standard just as high in the New Testament. If so, where is it? This is at the center of the submission message. God does have a way that He wants us to live. That Way is in His Word. We'll dive deeper into what that looks like on a practical level in the curriculum. The PDFs that will be provided for small groups will answer questions and raise new ones. My hope is that it will provoke some iron sharpening on a small group level.

Pray for me as I wrap up the outlines and go into recording mode this week! I'm excited!

  1. This subject is a very simple one once the church discovers what the "law" of Yahweh truely is. If we rightfully divide the scripture, there has never been an issue between law and grace because they serve two different purposes. Man brought in the issue between law and grace while failing to realize they are both needed but serves two different purposes. The Torah is what Yahweh provided to His people to LIVE by and according to Yahshua, He did NOT come to do away with the Torah law (Matthew 5). The Torah law has and always will be a beautiful WAY for those who truely find it. It was the Tree of Life that Yahwah placed in the garden for man to partake. Proverbs 3:1 "My son, forget not my law (Torah); but let thine heart keep
    my commandments: Proverbs 3:18 "She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her". Revelation 22:14 "Blessed are they that DO his COMMANDMENTS, that they may have right to the TREE of LIFE, and may enter in through the gates into the city". Revelation 2:7 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of Yahweh". Psalm 119:1 "Blessed are the undefiled in the WAY, who WALK in the TORAH of the LORD". The Torah law happens to be the true lamp unto our feet and light unto our path. Proverbs 6:23 "For the commandment is a lamp; and the TORAH is LIGHT; and reproofs of instruction are the WAY of life": 
    I have been teaching on the Torah law for sometime now, many have submitted to the Word of Yahweh while others continue their religious talk while never leaving their Pagan Idolatry worship. By the way, Yahshua did not set anyone free from His Father's law, He redeemed us from the "CURSE" of the law, not the law itself. To redeem someone from the "Curse" or penalty for disobeying was an act of Grace. But that act does not remove the instructions itself. Yahshua set the women who was caught in adultry free from the curse of the law, but he did not remove the law of adultry, but he instucted her to go sin no more. By the way, what is sin? According to 1 John 3:4 Whoever commits SIN transgress the LAW (Torah): for SIN is the transgression of the LAW (TORAH).

    I am open to teach on this subject for anyone who is truely willing to listen and learn or you can go to my website: and check out the teachings (Basics of Torah, What is the Purpose of the Torah, Way Truth and Life, and Yeshua and the Torah). These teaching has open the eyes of so many people and blessed them abundantly. 

    Be blessed, bro James Pride.
