There is a troubling trend today: People who are leaving Y’shua and the New Testament and clinging to traditional Judaism. There’s nothing wrong with traditional Judaism; it is the basis of our belief in YHWH and it is where we find Torah - God’s Divine Instructions in Righteousness without which we would have NO blueprint for moral, holy living.
But suddenly we have myriads of Christians who have found their way to Torah and are out there allowing themselves to be pulled away from the WHOLE Truth that they’ve finally found - and led into Judaism, which rejects Y’shua and the New Testament!
This is extremely troubling because it is simply a matter of the blind leading the blind. Jews are blind to the fact that there is a “rest of the story” which includes our Messiah Y’shua; and Christians have been blinded all their lives into thinking that Torah (which they erroneously refer to as “the law”) was only for the Jews. Torah shows us how to be holy and set apart for Him; and God never said that only the Jews were to be holy, did He?
So, it is mindboggling to discover this whole new movement by people who – instead of reading the Bible for themselves and consulting the Holy Spirit to guide them – have allowed themselves to be swayed to the “other side of the pendulum” by the likes of big name teachers such as radio host Rabbi Tovia Singer and the Karaite teacher Nehemiah Gordon, and Australian radio host Jono Vandor, a former Christian who found his way to Torah and then ultimately decided Y’shua and the whole New Testament are myths. Google these people for yourself and you’ll see what I mean; these guys seem to spend all their waking hours either teaching against and/or bashing those of us who believe in YHWH, Y’shua and the WHOLE of the Bible! And some are excruciatingly MEAN about it – especially the former Christians who found their way to Torah and then ultimately decided that the New Testament and Y’shua are a farce!
Take a look at the disturbing images we've posted on our website for the world to see! Here is but one:
The people who dare make posters such as this will also eat you alive with sarcasm and viciousness! They will give you an “Old Testament” concussion using plenty of scorn, mockery, contempt and double-talk, forbidding you to use New Testament scriptures in your correspondence with them – because the New Testament, they insist, is a fairytale. If you want to prove your “Jesus” (which is how they always refer to Him, never using his REAL Name, Y’shua, which means YHWH is Salvation) well, you’d better use ONLY the Old Testament….
Now, they don’t mind sending you to the Talmud, which is the “Oral Torah” – a collection of ancient discussions and writings ABOUT the Torah, passed down by the sages. They will tell you that the man-made thoughts of Talmud are just fine, but don’t think for a minute you may use that nasty “New Testament” stuff that talks about Jesus – never mind that the entire New Testament and everything that is taught in it refers back to, and ties in with the Torah! They will use against you their twisted ideas about the writings of Paul – which they learned in their Christian church days and which, despite all their “new wisdom” they still cannot understand or comprehend – and they’ll sneer at and belittle you into thinking that Paul was anti-Torah, and therefore his writings are null and void.
Well, nothing could be further from the truth, but it’s a true dilemma … and it’s very sad that most people seem unable to “come to YHWH like little children” (Matthew 18:3) so they can put aside their limited human mindsets and learn from the Holy Spirit.
The bottom line is, there’s really nothing you can do about it, except to pray for these poor, deluded souls who are unable to see the WHOLE Truth. Our suggestion, if you ever encounter them on the Internet, is to just leave them alone. Sow your seeds, if you are led to do so, and then leave it up to YHWH, because, honestly – you won’t be able to get through to someone who is prone to believing satan’s lies. You can’t get through to someone who doesn’t have the Holy Spirit residing within – as is clearly evidenced by the brutal behavior of some of these folks who believe they have a right to come up with posters such as the ones you just saw here on the screen. Nowhere in the entire Bible does God suggest that HIS people are to behave in such a demonic fashion.
We encourage you to pray for people who have lost their way. There’s really nothing else you can do. To each his own. God allows us all to choose whom we will follow. Matthew 7:13-14 tells us MOST will NOT be taking that narrow gate that leads to life.
