The coming antichrist is known in Scripture as “The Lawless One” referring to the “Laws of God.” Beginning with Adam and Eve many have taken this fruit of lawlessness and eaten it themselves by questioning the very instructions of their Creator.
The Hebrew word for ‘commandment’ is mitzvah. Mitzvot is plural and is found 123 times in the Hebrew Scriptures. According to Jewish tradition there are 613 commandments – positive commandments – in the Torah. Yeshua says that these commandments are divided into two specific ones: Loving God and loving your neighbor (Matthew 22:40).
