We have heard that some who went out from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying, “You must be circumcised and keep the Torah”—to whom we gave no such commandment. (Acts 15:24, NKJV)
Thus the apostles did not place the Gentiles under full obligation to the aspects of Torah specifically associated with Jewish identity such as circumcision," ("One Law and the Messianic Gentile by Boaz Michael and D. Thomas Lancaster, 2009)
Four years ago at this time, First Fruits of Zion shifted from One-Law (the view that non-Jews are included in the covenants and thus obligated to observe the Torah of Moses).
And they based their shift on a non-original, scribal addition to Acts 15:24!
That whole clause "You must be circumcised and keep the Torah" isn't even in Scripture! You only see it in translations such as King James that are based on the corrupted Western Textual Tradition. You'll notice that all of the modern English translations of the Bible exclude that non-original clause from Acts 15:24:
New International Version: "We have heard that some went out from us without our authorization and disturbed you, troubling your minds by what they said.
New Living Translation: "We understand that some men from here have troubled you and upset you with their teaching, but we did not send them!
English Standard Version: "Since we have heard that some persons have gone out from us and troubled you with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions,
New American Standard Bible: "Since we have heard that some of our number to whom we gave no instruction have disturbed you with their words, unsettling your souls,NOW LET'S HAVE SOME TRUTH!
James actually explained that non-Jewish Believers in Yeshua would be (1) included in the New Covenant and; (2) be obligated to keep Shabbat and all of Sinaitic Torah.
Here's James' quote:
"After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things," (Acts 15:16-17)
"Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world...Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God," (Acts 15:18-19)
"11 In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and will rebuild the ruins of it, and will set up the parts thereof that have been broken down, and will build it up as in the ancient days: 12 that the remnant of men, and all the Gentiles upon whom my name is called, may earnestly seek me, saith the Lord who does all these things," (Amos 9:11-12 LXX)
"And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto thee," (Zechariah 2:11)
"Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people..." (Isaiah 56:3)
"Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices [shall be] accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people," (Isaiah 56:6-7)
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, [that] the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem," (Isaiah 2:2-3)
"But in the last days it shall come to pass, [that] the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem," (Micah 4:1-2)
"31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: 32 not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day when I took hold of their hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; for they abode not in my covenant, and I disregarded them, saith the Lord. 33 For this is my covenant which I will make with the house of Israel; after those days, saith the Lord, I will surely put my laws into their mind, and write them on their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people," (Jeremiah 31:31-33 LXX)
"Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do [them. ]" (Ezekiel 36:25-27)
Here is the prophecy to which James refers in Acts 15:18-19
"If they will declare, let them draw nigh, that they may know together, who has caused these things to be heard from the beginning: then was it told you. I am God, and there is not another beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none but me. 22 Turn ye to me, and ye shall be saved, ye that come from the end of the earth: I am God, and there is none other," (Isaiah 45:21-22 LXX)
Those passages show that "joining" the L-rd involves joining the covenant and keeping things such as Shabbat--all the commands of the Sinaitic Torah which continues under the New Covenant. In short, James confirmed Peter's assertion that G-d had brought non-Jews into the Covenanted People of G-d (thus proving that circumcision is not initiatory but rather faith and grace).
"For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica..." (2 Tim. 4:10)
"You know that everyone in the province of Asia has deserted me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes," (2 Tim. 1:15)For my part, I'll fight for One-Law until I am dead. We are the ones that the Prophets spoke of; We are the ones whom G-d has "turned" from paganism to follow the Truth.
The Law SHALL go forth! Translation: No man can stop it! And He says that the non-Jews "SHALL be my people". Translation: No man can exclude them!
Blessings to the true brothers and sisters in the L-rd Yeshua,
