The time has come when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They are being tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. They are being influenced and tricked with lies so clever they sound like the truth. They listen for instance to teachers of Jewish myths, that teach them to keep and practice the Old Testament Law (written in the Torah), along with other regulations, rules, traditions, ceremonies, and festivities such as the Sabbath, the Year of Jubilee, Tithing, Shemitah, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and so on.
These teachers must be silenced, because they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. They do it only for the money they can get out of you, as they force you to give 10% of your income, and sow “seeds” of money – many times specific amounts they make up – on the dates of Jewish festivities in order to receive blessings, healing, and financial breakthroughs and of course avoid any imaginary curses! Naturally, the money “seeds” you give “to the Lord,” must be planted into their own ministry! Don’t even think of potentially letting the Holy Spirit direct your giving elsewhere.
Nowhere in the New Testament does it say that we as born-again Christians are supposed to keep Old-Testament Laws that were only meant for the Jews. How can we be sure of this? Because Jesus Christ came to fulfill the Law! He did this by ending the system of the Law with its commandments and regulations when He died on the cross and rose from the dead! Therefore we are no longer living under the requirements of the Law. Instead, we live under the freedom of God’s grace!
