The apostle Paul is warning us about the end times “some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. 1Timothy 4:1.
How do we know we are living the end times? Hebrew Roots is expanding. Hebrew Roots is devil worship. God is making this very clear that this is a departure from faith in Lord Jesus Christ. This also includes dietary restrictions described in Leviticus and Deuteronomy that were for the Israelites only starting on Mount Sinai and the law of Moses and ending on Golgotha and the finished Work of Lord Jesus Christ. Faith in the Name of Jesus Christ is what God is asking from us. It isn’t that what we eat, it is what words come out of our mouth. Gentiles are saved through grace; the same promise is for all Israelites as well. The time for salvation is now and the time is here. There is no second chance! But are they listening?
1Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Prohibited food by rabbi’s according to “oral law”. Any kind of food or drink served or touched by a non-jew are forbidden for a jew to consume. (Akum) This law as enacting for concern of a mixed marriage.
1Timothy 4:3-5 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
The pharisees, making up their 613 additional laws were meticulous in washing hands thoroughly before eating, but did they knew who Jesus Christ was?
Mark 7:2 and 7 And when they (=the pharisees) saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
When God says we can eat with worship and thanksgiving. We are not to adhere to the dietary doctrines of Hebrew Roots. It certainly does not offer any salvation. The apostle Paul is also mentioning this in his three following epistles.
Colossians 2:16,17 and 20-23 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. 20Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21(Touch not; taste not; handle not;) 22Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
Romans 14:6,17 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy the Holy Ghost.
1Corinthians 10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
God said to Peter to eat of the beasts that were on the great sheet that came down to earth.
Acts 10: 14,15 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
The Passover- and the Feast of Unleavened Bread tradition of the Hebrew Roots is not Biblical. They have 4000 years of collected tradition many of which came straight from Babylon, Egypt and Canaanites that they have added to their feasts (Passover, seder). This is not according to the Scriptures. The phrase “four cups or four cups of wine” is not mentioned in the Bible, not in the Old Testament nor in the New Testament. Just a pretense of keeping the Torah (and to get drunk). The four cups of wine is a Hebrew Roots tradition. The day immediately following Passover is the feast of unleavened bread that lasts seven days. Seven days of unleavened bread also means no leaven in the wine (=zero alcohol in the wine) or in anything else that will be consumed.

Quote: “The words “cup of wine” are mentioned four times in Pharaoh’s butler’s dream (Genesis 40:11-13). According to the Midrash, these cups of wine alluded to the Israelites’ liberation” End of quote
There is NO mention of “cup of wine” anywhere in the Bible for that matter. Grapes were pressed into the cup of the pharaoh. The word “cups” only is mentioned four times and is also totally out of context.
Genesis 40 deals with the dream of the butler and Joseph’s explanation of the dream. Jacob was not even in Egypt at that time as yet, let alone that it means “the liberation of the Israelites”.
Genesis 40:11-13 And Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand. 12 And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days: 13 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh’s cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.
Another tradition. they have a seat reserved for the prophet Elijah; neither is this mentioned in the Bible.
