John 5:30-31 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
Saul of Tarsus is the only one who testified of himself and declared himself to be an Apostle of Yahshua. He was not even taught by the true Apostles of Yahshua. Instead, he received his 'knowledge' of the Messiah by special revelation.
Galatians 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Yahshua Ha Mashyiach. (Jesus Christ).
Yahshua told us the following:
Matthew 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Who witnessed Saul's Apparent/Personal teaching by Yahshua? Anyone? No.
Saul of Tarsus taught in the Name of Yahshua. However, if he were a real, authentic Apostle of Yahshua, he should have been taught by Yahshua in the presence of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb. (Please see What Is An Apostle).
I John 2:18-19 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
I John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Yahshua is the Messiah? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
How does one deny both the Father and the Son? By preaching the Jesus (Yahshua) of lawelessness that Paul preached. He preached that Yahshua abolished the commandments of Yahweh and therefore any who adhere to His law are lost- or even worse: "unbelieving Jews."
Thus saith Paul of Tarsus:
Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Romans 10:4 For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
I Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of Yahweh: for if righteousness come by the law, then Messiah is dead in vain.
Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Galatians 5:4 Messiah is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Messiah, the righteousness which is of Yahweh by faith:
Acts 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
Saul/Paul's 'Jesus' is not the same Messiah who was sent by Yahweh, bearing the testimony of His Father: That Yahweh IS true. Yahshua did not teach anything contrary to the word of the Father in Heaven. Yahshua kept His Father's commandments and commanded us to do the same.
Even the Pharisees and the religious folks of the day, realized there was something amiss about Paul: eg., his utterly blasphemous doctrine:
Acts 21:28 Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.
Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For 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.
Luke 16:16-17 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of Yahweh is preached, and every man presseth (forces his way) into it. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
John 7:49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
If you believe in and love the Most High Elohim- Yahweh our Heavenly Father, and the Father of our Messiah, Yahshua, it's time to see how the teachings of Paul are both against the Father and His Son. How does a person deny both the Father and the Son? By breaking the commandments of Yahweh and by not receiving the true testimony of His Son. The testimony that Paul gives us, of Yahshua, is not the same testimony that is in the synoptic gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Jude, the 3 Epistles of John, James, and Revelation. It is not the same spirit at all, because if it was, Paul would have taught the same things the true Apostles taught. He didn't. He taught his own version, based on myterious revelation, whom none had been witness to, but himself. Yahshua's testimony was this: Yahweh IS true, and His Way is Righteous.
The problem with Paul of Tarsus, is that he blasphemed the Mighty One and made His Son out to be lawless and taught multitudes to follow himself, rather than Yahshua, the Good Shepherd. However, Yahshua said we need to obey and follow His teachings and His example, as He obeyed His Father. Yahshua came to teach us how to worship the Father in Spirit and truth and how to fulfill the law of Yahweh by obedience to His commandments. Paul taught a different god than the Elohim which Yahshua revealed to us by His Words and by His works. He kept His Father's commandments and told us to keep His, as He kept His Father's. Loving the Father means forsaking all other gods to obey and follow the truth. Yahshua told us His commandments are not grievous and they aren't. If we love the Father: Yahweh, it will be a pleasure to do His will.
Follow the Good Shepherd. He is the WAY to the Father.
