I’ve been asked this and it’s an Impossible set up for failure.
What I mean by that is. The people who ask this question aren’t looking for realistic responses. They are looking for you to either lie or say you do keep it perfectly. They want you to say no with failure on your mind. These kinds of people are looking for any excuse to break the commandments.
“Well, if you sin then why are you saying we should keep the law? And if you say you keep it perfectly and lie, we’ll then. You are a liar. I will not contend with such people. They are driven by the love of wanting people to fail. Not the love of encouragement, support, help or success. Remember that you do not have to answer to them. Sometimes we can feel so compelled to give an answer. Learn to discern. Learn that some want answers because they are genuinely curious and there is no right or wrong answer in their eyes. Some listen to respond with major hope that you fail their test.
The Father wants us to keep the laws. He wants us to listen and follow in the same footsteps as the Messiah. Does he know we aren’t perfect? YESSS! How do I know that? Well go all the way to Genesis. He said it. Genesis 3:22, Then Yah said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—” DOES THIS MEAN WE SHOULDN’T TRY TO PLEASE HIM? NO! Of course, we should strive to please him. But hey, if we do mess up. Remember: Yeshua came and became our final atonement so that we can be forgiven and not have to make sacrifices anymore. Our Father is just. Just like any parent should be. I know I expect my children to obey me. But I also know they are human, and they are gonna mess up from time to time. And again, like the Father, I will forgive them and try to redirect them (lead). Also, I want you to remember not to be discouraged on sharing truth. The Father places you where you need to be and gives you the job he knows you can handle.
He has given me several opportunities to share truth. These platforms to include Facebook, Torah Truth Quest Group, Unveiled Truths group, TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and last but not least the Goshen Gazette. That may not seem like a big job but trust me, I run across so many trials within the groups and TikTok. But again, if he didn’t trust me for the job, he wouldn’t have placed me there. Remember to thank him for the trials. James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him, pray this brings you peace on this matter.
