Are the commands of the Apostles Laws?

  • All scripture is given for our admonition and for our profiting unto perfection, therefore we rely on the commands of our Lord Yache's guidance through his prophets and Apostles.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is given by inspiration of Alahayim, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
[17]That the man of Alahayim may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works..

  • All the true spiritually inspired  books comprise the book of Ahayah because his spirit has gathered them.

Isaiah 34:16
Seek ye out of the book of Ahayah, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

  • We need only speak according to the Law and testimonies in these records to ensure we have the light in us: 

Isaiah 8:20
[20]To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

  • Seeing as though we are instructed to seek out of the book of Ahayah and speak according to his law and testimony, we shall not depart from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Cor 11:3) because the words are life unto us. (John 6:63) In this process, we are being made babes again being reborn, (John 3:5) desiring the sincere milk of the word (I Pet 2:2) of righteousness so that we may discern good and evil (Heb 5:13-14) being instructed out of the Holy Books that we may be perfect and furnished unto all good works (II Tim 3:16-18). Peter, said that we ought to keep in mind the words of the prophets and the commands of the Apostles of our Lord Yache.

2 Peter 3:1-2
[1]This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:​

  • This admonition lets us know that the commands of the Apostles must be kept as well as the instructions and edification of the spiritually inspired records of the prophets before because they are from the Lord Yache to awaken us to righteousness. The evidence that the commands of the Apostles are laws is evident in Paul's letters as well.

1Co 11:1  

Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 
1Co 11:2  

Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 

2Th 3:12  

Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Yache Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 

  • We are faithful that the commands of our Lord Yache given by his Apostles are for our profit to awake unto righteousness and stop sinning.(I Cor 15:34)

I Cor 14:37
[37]If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual,
let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

  • As people being led by the Spirit we acknowledge these are the commands of the Lord to awake us to righteousness though sadly to our shame not all have this knowledge.

1 Corinthians 15:34
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of Alahayim: I speak this to your shame.

  • Some people don't know this and we are commanded to let them be ignorant because we are called unto peace. If they don't agree with the commands of the Apostles, we cannot keep company with them but have to admonish them as brothers to reconsider.

1Co 14:38  

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 

2Th 3:14  

And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 

2Th 3:6  

Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Yache Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

2Th 3:15  

Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.  

Heb 12:14  

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:


  • If that person turns from the faith or is a follower of false doctrine, we must let them be after the second admonition.

Tit 3:10

 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 
Tit 3:11  

Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. 


Thayer Definition:
1) fitted or able to take or choose a thing
2) schismatic, factious, a follower of a false doctrine
3) heretic

Rom 16:17  

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 

  •  We are to be patient praying for them that they may be turned as we walk in meekness towards them in hopes that they come out of the snares of the devil to believe the scripture.

2Ti 2:24 

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 
2Ti 2:25  

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if Alahayim peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 
2Ti 2:26  And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
