The exodus of “Hebrew Roots” types leaving Y’shua to join the counter-missionaries continues. Daily, there are those who “cross over” to join them – and this is because they never had the Holy Spirit within and they never understood the Bible, in the first place. Too bad for them!
All sides are to blame, really (especially the individuals themselves, who allowed themselves to be sucked into all sorts of ignorant teachings that they readily swallowed as Truth!); but here’s a quick explanation as to why Jewish counter-missionaries and their hangers-on are so vicious and outspoken against Y'shua and the New Testament:
The reason why Jews get all bent out of shape and have formed their "counter-missionary" cults is because of the Christian mantra that "Jesus is God and it's all about Jesus!" NO, it's NOT! Yeshua was the MESSIAH! YHWH is God! Yeshua had a Divine Nature, but he never came to replace YHWH as "God" in the short time that he was a human walking this earth. Humans CANNOT be God! Yeshua was born and died - something that ELOHIM cannot do....
Yeshua, as "the Word" came from YHWH and was part of YHWH, but in his brief time on earth as a HUMAN, he never once said HE was God and that it's all about him! He was YHWH's MESSIAH! And he certainly didn't bring "Christianity." He didn't bring ANY "religion." He proclaimed the Kingdom of YHWH and did everything his Father commanded him to do.
But thanks to this Christian "Jesus is God and everything is about Jesus" mantra (which is what many "Hebrew Roots" adherents are bringing into the faith), the Jews are out there challenging the crud out of us and taking our gullibles away and using them to become their mouth pieces to constantly teach AGAINST "Jesus." (Once they reject our Messiah, they cannot even bring themselves to use his real name, Y'shua!)
Does this sound like Y'shua, the Messiah thought of himself as "God"?
Luke 4: 43 "But he (Yeshua/Jesus) said, "I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent."
Luke 8: 1. And it happened after these things that Y'shua was going around in the cities and in the villages and was preaching and declaring the Kingdom of Elohim.
John 12: 44. But Y'shua cried out and said, He who believes in me, it is not in me he does believe, but in Him who sent me.  45. And he who sees me sees Him who sent me! 46. I have come as the light into this world that all who believe in me might not remain in the darkness! 47. And he who hears my words, yet does not keep them, I do not judge him, for I have not come to judge the world but to give life to the world.
48. He who rejects me and does not receive my words, there is something that judges him. The word that I have spoken, it will judge him on the last day. 49. For I have not spoken from my soul, but the Father who sent me. He gave a Commandment to me what I should say and what I should speak. 50. And I know that His commands are eternal life.  Therefore, these things that I speak just as my Father told me, thus I speak. (AENTt)
 Y'shua does not bring a new Faith, but reveals the original Faith of YHWH the Father.
 Y'shua proclaims that he came to give life, then he declares that His father's Commands are eternal life! The Father's "Commands" are instruction in righteousness; this is Torah which contains Commandments, Judgments, Testimony and Witness regarding the Kingdom of Elohim. Those who enter into Covenant with Mashiyach are entering into Covenant with his Father YHWH; therefore, it is evil - an outright lie - to teach that Torah is done away with and replaced by a new theology!
 The Commands of YHWH bring eternal life. YHWH's "Commands" refers to all of His Commandments; these are one and the same as every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of Elohim. These are not Commands only between Y'shua and His Father but they are universal for all souls who will enter into the Malchut Elohim.
 Y'shua speaks the Word of YHWH, not his own words; therefore, he conveys the revelation of YHWH according to the Ruach haKodesh without the baggage of man's religious tradition. Religion has a propensity to reinvent or interpret the Word of YHWH to make it "acceptable" to man's standards; whereas Mashiyach came not to please men, but to honor and bring Glory to his Father.

My son can do a lot of things in my name, but if he decided one day that he was me, we'd have a problem. This is the biggest problem with the Western Church, and it is a stumbling block that they created by confusing the Father (invisible G-D that no man has seen) with His Son the Meshiach.ReplyDelete
RIGHT ON, Michael! Thank you!Delete
