In the time that I've been away from my precious blog, I have traveled deeper into the heart of wisdom. There is something so magical about receiving a new revelations on ancient truths. Let me share with you what I've learned.
The church has been deceived.
The church continues to be deceived because the church's primary focus is worship of grace through Jesus Christ, rather than worship of Yahweh through Yahshuah.
The church is steeped in its idolatry called "churchianity" (borrowed word) and is powerless to heal the sick, raise the dead, powerless to open blind eyes and unstop deaf ears and many greater things Yahshuah promised believers would do after his ascension.
The church can only regain this power by eschewing idolatry, humbling itself and returning to its roots in the Jewish understanding, interpretation and practice of the word of G_d.
I have only brushed the dust off of the surface that has yet to be scratched of the amazements G_d has yet to reveal.
My knowledge comes, largely from men whom I have never met, many of them Jewish, who hold these same beliefs and have been teaching them for many years.
My knowledge of scripture pertaining to the aforementioned truths is growing, but limited. I require much more study to show myself approved unto G_d, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Articulating what I have learned with compassion is yet a struggle, as my zeal often overtakes my sensitivity.
This is not a new faith wave or trend in preaching styles. This is the pure basic truth that we can see throughout scripture from Genesis to Revelation. Yahweh, chose a people, Israel, to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Throughout history His people worshiped idols and forgot G_d. In His infinite love, G_d intended to bring those outside of His chosen people into the sheepfold and make them a part of His kingdom. Throughout history non-Jews have worshiped idols and forgotten G_d.
Yahweh wants us to return to His original intent, to live and worship according to His original plan.
The first step to doing that is to recognize that Yahshuah (whom we call Jesus) came to free us from the penalty of our sin, not for salvation's sake, but to bring us into right standing with Yahweh, to bring us into right relationship with our creator.
The second step is acknowledge that Christianity is the child of Judaism. The first believers in Yahshuah were Jews. Yahsuah came to fulfill the law, not to render it null and void. We cannot allow satan's plan, to use Yahshuah as a barrier between Christians and Jews, to succeed. Leaving behind the label of Christianity to be followers of Yahshuah and casting off the straitjacket of Judaism to be Jews who follow Yahshuah is key to seeing the power of G_d released to mend families, answer unanswerable questions, reconcile the races inside and outside of the walls of the church, heal disease, provide for the widow and the orphan, stop physical and sexual abuse, eradicate child slavery and sex trafficking, toss away materialism and greed, deliver tormented and suicidal minds, transform trifling men into kings and pathetic women into queens, unlock financial, agricultural, medical, and other resources from tyrannical governments, etc. The list is unending. So is the light of Yahshuah (G_d is our saviour).
For eight days, the consecrated oil burned in the tabernacle when the Maccabees cleansed the house of G_d from idols that had corrupted that holy place. That is why Chanukah, the feast of dedication, is celebrated. Yahshuah, himself, celebrated this wonderful event. Yahshuah is the everlasting light that points us to the Father. He is the new beginning, the promise of abundance. As you pray and study, I pray that this will be your time of a new beginning, a time of renewal whose origin is a time before time began, when YHWH hovered over the face of the deep. He hovers over us now. What will be your response? Here is mine.
Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.
V'ahav'ta eit Adonai Elohekha b'khol l'vav'kha uv'khol naf'sh'kha uv'khol m'odekha.
Hear, Israel. The Lord is our God, the Lord is one.
And you shall love the Lord, your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Blessings unto you.
