If You Can't Keep It All.....

Have you been told, ""If you cannot keep ALL of Torah, you should not keep it."

Deut 30, verses 1-3 specifically speak about what I believe is happening right now.

Deuteronomy 30  (NKJV)
1 “Now it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God drives you, 2 and you return to the Lord your God and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul, 3 that the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you.

So very long ago, the tribes of Israel rebelled against YHWH and were scattered among the nations.  They forgot their god.  they forgot His laws.  they were so lost and forgotten, even to themselves, that they became gentiles, goyim, "nations, not israel."
But a time would come when they would remember their god.  they would remember his laws.  They would turn BACK to him and obey his voice.

And when they did God would 'turn back your captivity, and shall have compassion on you, and He shall turn back and gather you from all the peoples where YHWH your Elohim has scattered you."

Just as the prodigal son sat among the swine and remembered his father and his father's house and LONGED to even be a servant there instead of a 'freed man' out in the world, an exile... We LONG to to do what YHWH wants us to do and receive whatever blessings He would deem us fit for.

I can't do it perfectly.  But I will learn.  And I will try my best.

I also believe Acts 15 speaks directly to this.

I am not REQUIRED to do ALL of torah right now and perfectly.  There are some very basic rules that I must IMMEDIATELY implement, and then I am directed to LEARN torah. "From from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him - being read in the congregations every Sabbath.
