Elohim’s Laws

YHWH’s (God’s) Laws in Detail

These are Biblical laws called commLawsElohimandments (mitzvot) and collectively call the “Law of Moses” (Torah), “Mosaic Law”, or simply “the Law”. Rabbi Simlai in Talmud Makkot 23b was the first to number the 613 commandments.
These commandments are still in effect for all Hebrew Roots Christians who believe in Elohim and its Hebraic Roots since the Law of Moses was never abolished by Yeshua.


The 613 mitzvot are divided into three categories:

1.Mishpatim: commandments that are logical and make sense, such as not killing or not stealing.
2.Eidus: commandment of testimonies in Judaism. Example, the Shabbath testifies to the fact that Hashem created the world in six days and rested on the seventh day and declared it holy.
3.Chukim: Commandments that defy all reason and logic.

Many of the mitzvot cannot be observed now, because of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem and of the Redemption of Yeshua, He is now our Priest in the Holy Temple of Heaven: ( Hebrews 7:21-22; 24-25; 27; 8:1-2 ). 26 Commands apply only within the Land of Israel.
