Teaching the Hebrew Roots of Y'shua (Jesus).
We are seeing an incredible awakening taking place in the body of Messiah. The Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is starting to challenge Christians regarding their theology. Many are starting to rethink their positions on the Sabbath, The Feasts of the Lord, and more importantly the Torah.
The Torah, which is the first five books of the bible have been reduced to mean the “Law” to most Christians. However, this is because they have been looking at the scriptures through a Greek mindset. The problem with this thinking is that it negates most of what the scriptures are actually speaking to us, because they were not written by Greeks, but by Jews. Thus, until we seek to understand the words of Y’shua and the inspired words of God spoken through the other writers of the scriptures in their proper Hebraic context, we cannot receive the full richness of everything that God has for us.
Most people don’t even think about the fact that their Savior is Jewish, that Yeshua (Jesus) was born and raised in a Jewish home and was from the lineage of King David. He went to the Temple, attended synagogue, studied Torah, celebrated Shabbat and all the Moedim (Appointed Times). He was a Jewish Rabbi in Israel and lived what we consider an orthodox life; just as all of the Apostles, including Shaul (Paul), Shimon Kefa (Peter), Yochanan (John) and Yaacov (James).
There is no where in scripture that says they forsook their Jewish lifestyle; rather they all continued to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob just as their forefathers, only with the added revelation that Yeshua (Jesus) was and is the Messiah; fulfilling the prophecies and promises God made through the prophets.
Yeshua (Jesus) said in Matthew 5:17 that He did not come to abolish the Torah but rather to show you and I (the world) how to live it…not in a legalistic way but with love, joy and faith. He goes on to say the following in verses 18&19;
"For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Torah until all is accomplished. "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
In these last days many believers around the world are realizing what Rav Shaul (The Apostle Paul) taught in Romans 11, that Gentiles who are called out of the nations are meant to be grafted in to the Commonwealth of Israel. As you begin to discover and develop this revelation for yourself, a whole new understanding of God’s Word, promises and purpose for your life will emerge. So begin your journey with us today, return to the rich heritage of your faith and experience a whole new dimension of spiritual purpose and destiny.
We want to stay in touch with you in your busy schedule. So, we are using every resource available to us to reach out with the Good News of Y'shua ha' Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah).
