- No one can be condemned (death penalty) for any crime without 2 or more witnesses
- You cannot be prosecuted by your own confession alone, there must be other witnesses to confirm it.
- Without conviction of your crime, you cannot be forgiven, and your repentance doesn’t have a basis
- You require at least 1 more witness, preferably 2.
- Where there is no law, there is no sin. Torah is witness #2
- Where is the 3rd? Ha Satan, the prosecutor, the adversary makes the perfect case
When you feel convicted of your sin (the missing of the mark), and you look to repent, your confession provides the 3rd witness. The first was Torah. The 2nd was the Adversary. You provide the 3rd. Without the Torah and the Adversary, you will not be convicted. Without being convicted, there is no punishment. Without Punishment, there is no justice. You are stuck in no mans land.
15 “One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.
To make more sense of things, take an example: Somebody walks into a police station and says that they need to give a statement on a robbery. They go on to explain that they just robbed someone at gunpoint and stole their purse. However, the person does not identify the person they robbed or tell the police where the gun is. The person does not have a purse in their possession, either. The police cannot follow up on this crime because they have no evidence to go off of. Therefore, this person cannot be convicted of robbery.
