Our fellowship is a fascinating adventure. As we journey through the path that our savior has set before us, we see what our Father gives us freely the most precious gift in the world: Eternal Life. He gives us His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to stay on this path and the ability to keep our eyes on Him, His truth and our eternity with Him. Reminding us that historically what man, since Babylon has attempted to do was not only change Elohim’s way, but fabricate their own way into eternity.
Most of us gentile (goyim) believers come out of cultural paganism and anti-Semitism that has crept subtlety into the Christian Churches. The freedom under Grace has been twisted becoming an anti Old Testament, anti-Semitic Roman-Greco desecration of true believers. Elohim gave us an option:
Blessing and Cursing
Gen 12:3 Scriptures: “And I shall bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.”
Gen 12:3 VS Gen 12:3: bless . . . curse. Abraham's relation to Elohim was so close that to bless or curse him was, in effect, to bless or curse Elohim. See examples in Gen 20:2-18; 21:22-34; 23:1-20. all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. This promise was fulfilled in the coming of Abraham's seed, Messiah (Gal. 3:8, 16).
We are also warned in Roman 11:
Rom 11:24 Scriptures: For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall these who are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
The duration of Israel's rejection (temporary), Rom 11:25-32
Rom 11:25 Scriptures: For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in your own estimation, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’el, until the completeness of the gentiles has come in.
Rom 11:25: Vs. 11:25 Israel's hardening is partial (Jews are being saved today) and temporary (until they acknowledge Yahshua at His second coming). the full number of the Gentiles. I.e., the full number of Gentiles who will be saved (Acts 15:14). After that, Elohim will turn again to the Jews and will save "all Israel" at the Lord's return (v. 26).
(Rom 11:26 Scriptures) And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
(Rom 11:27 Scriptures) and this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.."
Instead of paying very close attention to these word (“the truth shall set you free”) the Church takes an anti-Semitic position of REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY, which means the Church has replaced the Jews. We also quote verses like these:
(Gal 3:28 KJV) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Messiah יהזשע.
Gal 3:28: Vs. 3:28 In the unity of the Body of יהזשע, differences of race, status, and gender lose their significance. Spiritual position is the same for all, but that does not mean that distinctions cease to exist, nor that all have the same functions within the body (1 Cor. 11:3; 1 Tim. 2:12).
(Gal 3:29 KJV) And if ye be Yahshua's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Gal 3:29: Vs. 3:29 יהזשע is the seed of Abraham (v. 16); being in יהזשע makes the believer a seed of Abraham and heir of the promise of justification by faith.
You’ll notice in these verses it says Jew nor Greek, male nor female. When did we stop being male and female? This does not mean that Judaism was done away with; it means that in Messiah we are equal, no one has a higher cultural position than another.
The Church has embraced its pagan roots not realizing that our roots of faith are in the good soil of Judaism. Matthew 13 explains the four soils. The last soil, which is good fertile ground, is the soil Messiah יהזשע planted the seed of the Gospel and it gave birth to the Church. In Acts 11:17:
(Acts 17:11 Scriptures) Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonike, who received the word with great eagerness, and searched the Scriptures daily, if these words were so.
Acts 17:11: Vs. 17:11 more noble character, shown by they’re open-minded examination of the Scriptures.
What scriptures did they examine? Of course, the Old Testament. Yes we are not under the law but the foundation of our belief is in the Old Testament. It gives us much insight and examples 1Cor 10: Read the entire chapter
(1 Cor 10:6 Scriptures) And these became examples for us, so that we should not lust after evil, as those indeed lusted.
1 Cor 10:6: Vs. 10:6 The Israelites preferred the food of Egypt to Elohims manna (Num. 11:4).
(1 Cor 10:11 Scriptures) And all these came upon them as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come,
(1 Cor 10:12 Scriptures) so that he who thinks he stands, let him take heed lest he fall.
In verse 14 there is a warning to stay away from our pagan feasts:
Do not participate in idol feasts, 10:14-22
(1 Cor 10:14 KJV) Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
1 Cor 10:14: Vs. 10:14-22 Paul's point is that partaking in a religious feast means fellow-shipping with the one worshiped at that feast. This is true of the Lord's Supper (vv. 16-17), it was true of Israel in OT times (v. 18), and it is true of a pagan feast (vv. 19-22). Therefore, believers must not fellowship at pagan feasts since they may thereby open themselves to demonic attacks (v. 20).
(1 Cor 10:15 KJV) I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
(1 Cor 10:16 KJV) The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of יהזשע? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of יהזשע?
If you want to learn more come and join us in fellowship, praise and worship and let’s break bread together. You’ll learn about the Feast of, the Book of Daniel and the four world Empires, which is the center of end time prophecy. Also creation vs. evolution, the foundational teachings of Judaism and Christianity. By the way, all of our Bible Study members are quizzed and are given exams.
