There are a whole bunch of these groups cropping up. Their main message—we need to follow the Mosaic Law.
I don’t know where to begin with the issues I have with these groups.
One thing I’ve noticed is that they change the Bible. In some cases, they’ve rewritten the Bible over and over because as they change things, new issues crop up. The one significant thing they’ve change is the word “new covenant” to “renewed covenant.
Jeremiah 31:31 clearly states. “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31: 31-33
The word “new” here is clearly not “renewed.”
Some of these group members also call themselves “Jews.” Revelation is clear that this is a bad sign.
“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” Revelation 3:9
Most of these groups reject large parts of the New Testament because they can’t justify what they’re teaching and accept the whole Bible. The problem is, they don’t realize that the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ as King of a Kingdom with a new set of laws. The Mosaic system was fulfilled when Jesus died on the cross and a new era with a new covenant began when He rose from the dead.
“If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. “
