Maimonides in his Thirteen Principles of Faith, the ninth principle reads:"I believe with complete faith that this Torah will not be exchanged and there will be no other Torah from the Creator, blessed be His Name."
He also wrote in The Laws of the King Mashiach: "If a king will arise from the House of David who delves deeply into the study of Torah and, like David his ancestor, observes its mitzvoth as prescribed by the Written Law … ; if he will prevail upon ALL ISRAEL to walk in [the way of Torah] and repair the breaches [in its observance]; and if he will fight the wars of [HaShem]; – we may, with assurance, consider him Mashiach. If he succeeds in the above, builds the [Beit Ha] Mikdash (temple) on its site, and gathers the dispersed remnant of Israel, he is definitely the Mashaich. He will then perfect the entire world, [motivating all the nations] to serve [HaShem] together, as it is written, "I will make the peoples pure of speech so that they will all call upon the Name of [HaShem] and serve Him in one purpose."
We also read in the book called "Mashiach" by Jacob Immanuel Schochet on page 43: "Mashiach shall meditate on the Torah and be preoccupied with mitzvot. He shall teach all the Jewish people and instruct them in the way of [HaShem]. He will prevail upon Israel to follow and observe Torah, repair its breaches, and fight the battles of [HaShem]. Mashiach will reveal altogether NEW INSIGHTS, making manifest the HIDDEN MYSTERIES OF THE TORAH, to point that, "all the Torah learned in the present world will be vain compared to the Torah of Mashiach."
Torah Hadasha: Our Jewish brothers understand that the TRUE Messiah would teach and observe the Torah of HaShem.He would not come to abrogate the Torah or even change it. He would come to bring to Israel NEW INSIGHTS into the Torah of Moshe.It would not be a different Torah, but the very same Torah that HaShem gave to Moshe at Mt. Sinai. Mashiach would LIVE IT and TEACH IT!
When we teach (in error) that Messiah came to "fulfill -as defined by do way with" the Torah, our Jewish brothers know different. That is why they reject the GREEK Torah destroying "Jesus" of the "church" and are looking for a Torah observant JEW to come as the Messiah. They know that their sage teach a Torah keeping Messiah, and we do agree with them (a Jew should not believe in a Torah abolishing Jesus, that Jesus is an idol, forbidden for a Jew to believe in).
"Presume not that I come to release the Torah and the Prophets: I come not to release but to fulfill." The Aramaic Good News (Peshitta)
If we continue reading in Mattithyahu 5 in verse 18 we find that our holy Rabbi, Maran Yeshua says that the Torah will NEVER pass away. Here our rabbi is teaching us Torah in complete agreement with the Jewish sages that teach, "Everything has an end-the heaven and the earth have an end-except one thing which has no end. And what is that? The Torah / Law (Genesis Rabbah 10:1); No letter will ever be abolished from the Torah / Law (Exodus Rabbah 6:1)."
Our holy Rabbi, Maran Yeshua the Mashiach "Never came to abolish or change the Torah of HaShem!" He is the goal of Torah (Romans 10:4) and ALL the TaNaK points to him (the Mashiach) and speaks of him (the Mashiach). His intent in coming is the rabbinical understanding of the word "fulfill’ means to " properly interpret the Torah and thus by properly interpreting it, putting it on a more solid foundation or establishing it!" Our Rabbi, Maran Yeshua came to make sure we understood that the Torah of HaShem is everlasting. He would never invalidate or remove even a Torah letter from the Torah of HaShem, that would be a crime and he would be destroying the Torah of HaShem (misinterpreting it).
Rabbi Shaul HaPerush (the Pharisee) repeats this TRUTH: Romans 3:31: "Do we nullify the Torah through belief? Let it not be! On the contrary, we establish the Torah."
Therefore let us, as Messianic Jewish believers, share with our Jewish Brothers the true Jewish Mashiach-Yeshua –the Torah observant Jew who did not come to start a New World religion, but came to fulfill the Torah of HaShem!
