    1. Torah For Christians Rabbi Ariel Ehrmantrout Ministries 2005 All rights reserved worldwide

    2. WHATS BEING RESTORED WITHIN THE HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT? 1.The people called Israel in the Bible. (Jews & Non-Jews) How do you identify yourself in Messiah? 2. Torah (G-ds Teachings & Instructions) 3. The Sabbath (Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown) Its a sign & a commandment 4. Dietary Laws (No swine where we dine!) 5. The Feast of Yahweh (Leviticus 23) 6. Pilgrimages to the land of Israel 7. The Hebrew Language 8. Davidic Dance & Worship The Tabernacle of David Access for all and worship 24 hrs a day 7 days a week

    4. Exodus 28:1-5 1 Have Aaron your brother brought to you from among the Israelites, along with his sons Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, so they may serve me as priests. 2 Make sacred garments for your brother Aaron, to give him dignity and honor. 3 Tell all the skilled men to whom I have given wisdom in such matters that they are to make garments for Aaron, for his consecration, so he may serve me as priest. 4 These are the garments they are to make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a woven tunic, a turban and a sash. They are to make these sacred garments for your brother Aaron and his sons, so they may serve me as priests.

    5. 2. The Vestments of the Priest of G-d

    7. 3. There was a difference in function between the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) and the regular Kohanim (Priests) Ez 44: 23-24 a. 23 They are to teach my people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean. In any dispute, the priests are to serve as judges and decide it according to my ordinances. They are to keep my laws and my decrees for all my appointed feasts, and they are to keep my Sabbaths holy. b. The High Priest wore 8 garments; 8 comes from the Hebrew Letter Chet and signifies the Priests ability to go in!, lead in!, bear in! Leading in to G-ds Holy Redemptive Walk, by following Torah and represents the mission of Messianic Congregations today. c. Regular Priests wore 4 items; 4 comes from the Hebrew letter Dalet which means the Door and corresponds with Christianity today-and their focus on entrance to G-ds Kingdom. d. The Priesthood and their vestments were to be a UNIFIED SINGLE UNITperforming G-ds Divine Will; this represents the reunification of Judah (Messianics) and Ephraim (Christianity) todayto bring about the final revival in the Earthgreater than the miracle at Pentecost/Shavuot!

    9. 4. The 8 garments of the priesthood are 1st: The Ephod

    11. 4. The 8 garments of the priesthood are 1st: The Ephod II c. Isaiah 22:22 "Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, When he opens no one will shut, When he shuts no one will open. d. The names of all twelve tribe are forever engraved in stone on His shoulders and forever remembered as "memorial stones" just as Moses set up the twelve stones a few days earlier at the betrothal at Mt. Sinai (Exodus 24:4).

    13. 5. 2nd: The Choshenor Breastplate of Judgment a. G-d designed that the twelve tribes be displayed using precious stones in four rows "There are to be twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes." b. The twelve tribes not only are to be on His shoulders but also displayed over His heart for all to see, ever before G-d and forever written on His heart. These twelve tribes serve as G-ds "government" to the Nations (Exodus 19:5-6). And through Yeshua, all authority is given. (Isaiah 9:6). c. 12 Disciples were chosen to Judge the 12 Tribes of Israel-Luke 22:30 says, So that you may eat and drink at my table, in my Kingdom, and sit upon 12 thrones judging the 12 Tribes of Israel. d. This refers to making binding Halachic decisions (BINDING and LOOSING) not grabbing SpiritsSpirits ONLY have power YOU give them BY disobedience to Torah! This is why Paul calls this the Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS From the Hebrew word Tzedaka meaning RIGHT ACTS of Torah!

    14. 6. 3rd and 4th: The Urim and Tumim: The Precious Stones a. The Breast plate was folded in two that made a pouch and these two precious stones they spoke for G-d to the Nation b. These have the ability to reflect G-ds mouthpiece for making decisions of deliverance for YHVH s people. It is the witness of Yeshua in people hearts (Exodus 28:30; 1 Peter 1:9-13). c. Ezekiel 36:26-27 "Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. "And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances." This is the Urim and the Tumim today. (Ezekiel 11:19-20; Jeremiah 31:33). d. 2 Corinthians 3:3 "You show that you are a letter from Yeshua, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. What Kind of Mouthpiece is your life for G-d??

    16. 7. 5th and 6th: The Tunic and Robe a. The Ketone (Tunic) was worn directly on the skin over the undergarments. It was woven of fine fabric into symbolizing G-ds Oneness that covers our nakedness (Adam tried to clothe himselfbut G-d clothed him, First in Skins, then His descendents in Messiah). b. John 19:23 says, 23When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. c. The word Garment comes from the Hebrew word Ketone ((03801) Meaning Tunic! Messiah wore the Tunic of the High Priest! d. The Meil or Robe went over the head and was open on the sides. It contained 72 pomegranates, 70-representing the entire house of Jacob that lost their Identity to Mitzraim (bondage) plus the 2 sons of Joseph, Ephraim (Christianity) and Menashe (Judah). Each Pomegranate contain 613 seeds, for the 613 commands found in Torah. The Bells and the Pomegranates-make a pleasing sound to the Fatherthe sound of obedience to Torah!

    18. 8. 7th and 8th: The Turban and the Head Plate a. The Turban represents having a mind focused on obedience, as it says in Philippians 2:6-8, Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death even death on a cross! b. This gold plate must be engraved with "HOLY TO YHVH." It was over the forehead attached to the turban by a blue cord to be worn continually. This signifies our mind continually before YHVH, thinking ONLY holy thoughts. The blue cord tied to the turban brings the divine element bringing them all into the Captivity of Messiah 2 Cor 10:5 c. Once Moses received the pattern for the garments, instructions were now given for how to consecrate priests who came to serve before YHVH in the Mishkan (Tabernacle) the home YHVH had for His Bride. There are many that serve in the outer court but few that have consecrated themselves by circumcision in heart, in mind and in deed to serve in His Holy court!

    20. 9. Ephesians 6:10-17 The Prophetic Priestly Garments of Jesus a. Ephesians 6:10-17 Paul said, "Finally, be strong in YHVH, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God (priestly garments), that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God (priestly calling), that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm." b. "Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth (Isaiah 11:5 righteousness will be the belt about His loins, And faithfulness [in YHVH] the belt about His waist ), and having put on the breastplate of righteousness" (Isaiah 59:17 He put on righteousness like a breastplate, ). And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Torah); (Isaiah 52:7 How lovely on the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news (The Torah), Who announces peace And brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, And says to Zion, "Your God reigns! )."

    21. 10. Ephesians 6:10-17 The Prophetic Priestly Garments of Jesus {slide 2} a. "In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith (his faithfulness, not our own) with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. (But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith (His faithfulness) and love (His love is obedience to His Torah) as a breastplate 1 Thessalonians 5:8). b. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. ("And a helmet of salvation on His head; And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle. (Robe) Isaiah 59:17 "and the hope of salvation as a helmet," 1 Thessalonians 5:8 c. "And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me, And He has also made Me a select arrow; He has hidden Me in His quiver" Isaiah 49:2. (Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 1:16; Matthew 4:4; Revelation 12:11)." d. Does your life shine with the Glory and Splendor G-d intended it to have? If not--Put on G-d's FULL ARMOUR!

    22. Concluding Blessing II May the L-rd Bless you and keep you May the L-rd shine His face upon you And be gracious to you May the L-rd lift up His countenance upon you And grant you peace!
