    I recently published a bible study on why the Torah of Moses has not been abolished, why it is still necessary, what the Messiah meant when he said "I came to fulfill the Torah", why the Torah will vanish away once this heaven and earth vanishes away, and finally, if indeed the Torah is still binding, why circumcision of the flesh is no longer required, along with observing the appointed times and Shabbaths of the Torah.

    A change in the priesthood necessitates a change in the law. We have gone from a earthly ministry to a heavenly one.

    Heb. 7:12 For of the priesthood being changed, from necessity a change of Law also takes place.

    The holiness laws of Moses have been changed into an abiding in Christ. The righteousness laws stay the same.

    A change in the Torah is not an abolishment of the Torah. That is why we no longer sacrifice lambs every year on the Passover, for the Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. This is an example of a "change" in the Torah, which is why observing appointed times of the Torah are no longer required under the new covenant, for their fulfillment is found in the Messiah.

    So then besides abstaining from meat sacrificed to idols and avoiding sexual immorality what changes from the council of Jerusalem (Acts 15) would you suggest are binding on modern believers?

    The council of Jerusalem did not change the Torah by abolishing it, they simply repeated specific commands of the Torah that were relevant to the common practices of Gentiles that broke those specific commands, which is why they said, "let us not burden them, for they already have Moses read in their synagogues", meaning let us not burden them with reading them the entire Torah that they've already heard, which is why they were specifically told regarding sexual immorality and abstaining from blood and meats having blood in them, which are commands of the Torah that the Gentiles commonly disobeyed. As such, the entire Torah is binding, except commands related to circumcision, food, drink, appointed times, new moons, and Shabbaths. And just as they had specific commands mentioned to them for evil practices they committed in their time, I will make mention of one thing you must stop using in our time, paper money and fiat currency, which breaks the command of the Torah, "you shall have righteous weights and quantities", which fulfills the prophecy of the mark of the beast in the book of Revelation. So although you do not need to concern yourself with certain burdensome matters of Torah, which brought the death penalty if you did not keep those commands, you have a greater concern in our current time, how to exit the financial system.
