Law of Moses and the Millennium

The Fullness is Yet to Come
In reading through the Torah, we cannot help but notice that there are several social institutions described that never seem to achieve their fullness in Israel’s history. For example:

  1. Judicial system
  2. Agricultural system
  3. Feasts and Calendar
  4. Priesthood
  5. Settlement of Land

If all these elements are in the Scriptures (and “Scripture cannot be broken” – John 10:35), mustn’t there be a time when they will come into their fullness? Some dismiss all these passages as simply “old” covenant, that are done away with by the “new;” but, we believe that through Yeshua, we will see “fullness of all things” –including everything in the Torah and Prophets, in heaven and on earth (Acts 3:21; Eph. 1:10).

Unfinished Business
With this in mind, we can read the Torah in a “prophetic” way, with a future fulfillment yet to come (Matthew 5:17-18). End times’ prophecies are filled with references to Torah elements: Isaiah 2 describes the millennial kingdom in which “the Torah will go forth from Zion” (verse 3); Isaiah chapters 60 to 66 speak of a renewal of Zion and resettlement of the land; Isaiah 66 makes reference to food laws (verse 17), Levites (verse 21), new moons and Sabbaths (verse 23).

The last 9 chapters of Ezekiel are perhaps the most challenging. A new Temple is built, described in utmost detail (chapters 40 to 41), that is then filled with the glory of God (chapter 43), with a new priesthood and sacrificial system (chapter 44), including all the feast celebrations (45), led by the Messianic King (46), in a renewal of nature and agriculture (47), and resettlement of the land according to the tribes of Israel (48). What are we going to do with all these chapters?

The end of the book of Joel describes a restoration of Zion both spiritually and economically after the events of the end times. Micah speaks of the former kingdom being reestablished (Micah 4:8). Zechariah 14 describes as well a restoration of feasts and Temple worship after the Second Coming of Messiah. From these quite numerous scriptures, it seems that there will be a renewal and observance of the Torah during the Millennial Kingdom, which will be consistent with New Covenant priorities and emphases, as taught by Yeshua and the Apostles.

God’s kingdom has order. The entire Bible, including the Torah, defines that divine order. (“Torah” means not only “law” but “instruction.”) The ultimate goal of the Gospel of the Kingdom, fulfilled in the Millennium, is to establish God’s order on the earth for Israel and the nations. Let us pray for wisdom to understand the right integration of gospel, law and kingdom in these end times.

    Bendciones Amados hermanos… Gloria a Dios por sus vidas..

    1.- Sistema judicial,. Cada Nación tiene una Ley que fue basada en la Torah pero se han cambiado muchas cosas por eso YESHUA dijo sujetarse a vuestras autoridades Esa seria la Ley del Sistema judicial actual bajo el nuevo Pacto las que establecieron en cada Nación…

    2.- Sistema agrícola.- La Ley Agricola esa NO debria de cambiar Ya que es algo de la naturaleza y quien sabe mejor todas las cosas mas que ELOHIM y si quieren ver una producción fructífera debería seguir la misma LEY que Adonay nos dejo..

    3.- Fiestas y Calendario. EL PLAN PROFÉTICO DE DIOS..

    4.- Sacerdocio.- Ya NO hay Templo. EL sacerdocio Levitico FUE cambiado por el Sacerdocio Espiritual en YESHUA como nuestro SUmoSacerdote,,

    These translations are from an internet translator for the above comments.

    1- JUDICIAL SYSTEM Each nation has Laws that was based on the Torah, but many things have been changed by that YESHUA said to subject to your authorities seriously, the Law of the current judicial system under the New Pact (Covenant?) they establish in each nation.
    2- 2- Agricultural System – The Agricultural Law that should NOT change because it is something of nature and who knows everything better than ELOHIM and if they want to see a fruitful production should be the same Law that Adonay left us …
    3- Parties and Calendar. THE PROETIC PLAN OF GOD
    4- PRIESTHOOD – There is NO Temple anymore. The Levitical priesthood was changed by the Spiritual Priesthood in YESHUA as our High Priest
    5- Land settlement

    I hope this helps those who are not fluent in Spanish.

    1.- Judicial system. Each Nation has a Law that was based on the Torah. But many things have been changed. For that reason YESHUA said he was to be subject to the authorities. That would be the Law of the current Judicial System under the new Covenant that they establish in each Nation …

    2.- Agricultural System.- The Agricultural Law that should NOT change since it is something of nature and who knows everything natural better than ELOHIM. Those who wish to see fruitful agricultural production should follow the LAW that Adonai left us ..

    3.- Festivals and Calendar. THE PROPHETIC PLAN OF GOD ..

    4.- Priesthood.- There is NO Temple anymore. The Levitical priesthood was transformed by the Spiritual Our Priesthood is in YESHUA as our High Priest,

    5.- Land settlement
