Hebrews 8:13

Hebrews 8:13 (NIV) By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.

Hebrews 8:13 (AENT) In that he said a Renewed (Covenant), he made the first old; and that which is old and decaying, is near to disappearing.

What is “near to disappearing” is the how man has broken TORAH, not the instructions/commands/precepts that Torah sets in place.  We, as people, have broken Torah not YahwehYahweh  did not decide to drop HIS divine instructions because we chose to quit following HIS commands.  HIS purpose was to install a Renewed Covenant to write Torah upon the heart through the work of the Ruach haKodesh (Jeremiah 31:31-34) , according to our Messiah. If we look at it this way we can see that the Torah wasn’t done away with it actually had its bar raised by Yeshua as HE magnified it (pleroo in Greek or Fulfilled in English).  HE does it for HIS sake (Isaiah 42:21). When our ancestors decided to break Torah, Yahweh stepped in and gave us HIS son to show us what to do.  By supplying us with the final sacrifice Yahweh showed mercy on us through the shed blood of the Messiah presenting us Spotless and Blameless before our Elohim.  The problem is that Yahweh’s part of the covenant has never changed; our’s has.  We are to restore ourselves to obedience through Faith in HIS son and insertion of the Ruach HaKodesh inside of us.  Because mankind broke the Covenant, Yahweh requires complete renovation on our part, not HIS part of the Covenant. This verse has become the “centerpiece” of a Torahless Christianity and that is a dangerous path to take.
