Bits of Torah Truths – What the NT Says about Money Agrees with the Torah – Episode 169
ה רַחֲקוּ מֵאַהֲבַת כֶּסֶף וְשִׂמְחוּ בְּחֶלְקְכֶם, כִּי הוּא אָמַר, ״לֹא אַרְפְּךָ וְלֹא אֶעֶזְבֶךָּ.״ (דברים לא׳ ו׳,ח׳//יהושע א׳ ה׳)
5 Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” (NASB)
6 “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” 7 Then Moses called to Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall give it to them as an inheritance. 8 “And the Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear, or be dismayed.” (NASB)
5 “No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. (NASB)
Here in Hebrews 13:5 the author quotes from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 and Joshua 1:5 and makes a very important statement about the love of money because money can be an idol. The concept of God being with us is clearly a Torah based concept. The love of money (as an idol) is incompatible with our faith. These things demonstrate for us that the Torah has not passed away.
