Yes, Jesus is the Living Torah and we are under the Torah of Yahshua, we are not under the Torah of Moses. The Covenantal Promises given to Abraham and His Seed, not seeds as in many, but Seed as in One. That One being Yahshua Messiah. The English translations of the Bible have been translated into the western literal physical mindset of the Greeks and have forsaken the audience relevance of whom The Book was written to and the mind set of those Peoples. The Book is to and for the Eastern Oriental Hebreic Peoples and should be read and understood in their mindset. You give a good run down on 'lawlessness', but we are looking at the specific person of Thess.2:2, when Christian of Thess. were being told of the 'Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ'.This is 'the Coming' in Judgement of the Mosaic Torah/ Marriage Contract to usher in the Messiahnic Marriage Contract. As long as The Temple stood, the Cultis behind it stood and when that Temple of The Death Fell, the Perfect did come.
Love God and love your neighbor.Beloved, Yahshua called us to follow Him and His commandments, which are EXACTLY the same as His Father's commandments.
Yahshua told us in Matthew 5:17-19 that He did not come to abolish the Torah and Prophets but to fulfill them. Fulfill does NOT mean to do away with, but to give FULL meaning to them. Yahshua even went deeper as to their meaning.
13Ye (First Century Thess) are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14Ye (First Century Thess.)are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
We see that the Jot and Tittles Do pass, when all be Fulfilled. The Jot and Tittle encompass The Mosaic Torah AND the Prophets. The Mosaic Torah was always to have an end coming, as Exodus says God remembered:
24And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
25And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.
This is Before the Mosaic Betrothal of Sinai. This was Before the Mosic Marriage at Gilgal of God remembering The Covenant with The Fathers
Using the Hebreic mindset and language, you should know very well of what the words of Heaven and Earth mean. This is The Peoples of The Land (vs the peoples of the sea), The Governmets and Peoples and the 'World' of the OC Temple Cultis. This 'Decreation' fully came about when The Temple of that old world fell and not one stone was on another.
Yahshua Messiah was Born under The Law of Moses and He Died Under The Law of Moses, so He fully had to keep all of The Law of Moses. As also with the Apostle Paul, being born a Jew and a Hebrew, he fully had to keep every Jot and Tittle as long as 'Heaven and Earth' stood. The Apostle Paul had Timothy (?) circumcised because he had a Jewish mother, but He did not allow Titus to be circucised because Titus was Never under The Law (Torah) of Moses and that Law, which The Fathers (Those Hebrews before Paul)of could Never keep was at the time Waxing old and ready to vanish away. The 'Greeks/Gentiles/ Ephrain' were never under The Torah of Moses or they had be Divorced from the Torah of Moses and would be a violation of The Marriage Laws to come back under the old Covenant, there by putting Sin at YHWHs feet, which He would never do or allowSo as believers in the Messiah Yahshua, we should obey His Word and do as He did. Yahshua kept the Shabbat, the moedim, (Festivals), the New Moons and taught Torah. Paul did as well. So why are not most Christians doing so? To be Torahless means to be without Torah or to be against it or to put another teaching in place of our Father's teaching which all are forbidden to do. We are not to add to YHWH's Teaching nor are we to subtract from it. Deuteronomy 4
Declaring the begining and The End? The Messiahnic Marriage Covenant has NO END.... Thess.2:2 is in the First Century context which must be understood as the First Century Man of Sin..So how is this man of Torahlessness revealed? Could it be possible that when we teach the whole council of Elohim many will fall away because they despise truth and there will be one who will lead? Isaiah 46:10 tells us that Elohim has declared from the beginning, the end. I believe if we look back to Genesis and read in the Hebrew what is there, much will be revealed.
Dress Rehersals, Holy Convocations for The Real. Every Feast of The Lord as the Type has a corrisponding Christ Event of The Real. All 'Christian Sects' agree of the passing of the first four Feasts of The Lord in the First Century. The Last three also happened as in Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacals. The 'Types' and 'Anti-types' corrisponds to the T of when the 'Dress Rehersals that were set up when Moses told Pharoah to let YHWHs People go. Passover/The Cross, Feast of unLeaven/Passion Week (one week), Feast of FirstFruit/Yahshuas Resurrection,Feast of Week/Pentecost. All of the last three Feasts of The Lord happened during the Jewish War 66-70 AD.Our Father shows us in His holy set apart times what He is going to do. The Shabbats, New Moons, and Festivals are all dress rehearsals, (shadows) for things TO come.
These feasts are clustered according to the rainy season in Israel. Passover, the Feast of Unleavened bread, First fruits, and Pentecost come under a period known as the latter rain. The latter rain brings forth the beginning of the harvest, it comes in the Spring. Then you have a four month or 120 day dry season, which I believe is the building of the church between Pentecost and A.D. 70. Which is also an analogy to Noah building the arc. That also was the end of an age. Then we have the former rain that occurs during the end time Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles. Hopefully, we will see that these feast represent the fall of Jerusalem, the end of Old Covenant Israel and the establishment of the New Heavens and Earth where God's tabernacle is with men. Hosea explains to us that the latter rain comes first, then the former rain.
Hosea 6:3 (NKJV) Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
If you keeep any part of the Mosaic Torah, you are not under Faith, but under a cultis of works. Works of the carnal flesh only brings The Death.Please don't keep the Torah because you have to but because you love the One who gave it in the first place. If you keep the Torah because you have to, then you are no longer under grace, but if you keep it because of your relationship with the Master and you truly love Him and His people, then you are truly under grace.
So now are there examples in Scripture of those who despised the teachings of Elohim and set themselves up in place of Elohim?
Thanks for your consideration.
Jer.6: 17Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.
22Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
23They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
Romans 11: 5Even so then at this present time (First century)also there is a remnant according to the election of grace (Rement of Jews and Gentiles).
6And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
7What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest ( Israel of Darkness and Barbarians)were blinded.
