Counter-missionaries seem to have this need to ferret out those who believe that Y'shua is YHWH's Messiah, just so they can pick fights and harass and berate and basically "be right" in the eyes of the world. They don't hesitate to try to convince you of how stupid and lost you are for "believing in an idol" and the "myth of your lying New Testament" - and they love to let you know that THEY have "tested everything out" for themselves and found TRUTH!
Well, here is my response to those who hate Jesus, but cannot seem to stop talking about him; and who spend their days hunting down, for the sole purpose of arguing, those of us who believe he is YHWH's Messiah:
So, you hate Jesus and the New Testament - that much is clear. But, have you ever stopped to think that maybe - just MAYBE - you have "tested" yourself right out of the Truth? Do you really need to be reminded that nobody can "prove" anything in the Tanach is true, either - that it's all by FAITH?
You personally never saw YHWH's face. You never met Adam and Eve, nor did you see Cain kill Abel, nor did you experience the Flood or watch Noah and his family start the whole human race all over again. You didn't see Moshe's burning bush, nor a talking donkey, nor "three men" surviving a fiery furnace.
You didn't personally know Moshe, nor did you see him hitting the rock to get water out of it. You didn't see God destroying Sodom and Gemorrah, nor witness Lot's wife being turned into a pillar of salt.
You didn't personally witness the Ten Plagues, nor follow Moshe out of Egypt nor did you SEE or TOUCH the ark; nor did you camp around Mt. Sinai. You also didn't personally witness Korach and his family being sent down into Sheol -.yet you will fight to the death to convince others these things are all true ... because, by George, YOU BELIEVE!
To top it all off, once you found your way to Torah, you immediately viewed yourself to be a qualified Torah teacher...
But truth be told, Mr. Arrogant Torah Expert, you didn't come to Torah all by yourself, and therefore, you don't have the right to pat yourself on the back. Someone SHOWED you the way. And once you realized that you had been living in a Sunday-Go-To-Meetin', Pew Warming LalaLand for decades, you woke up, and started wondering what else you might have missed.
So then, angry at "the church" instead of yourself for being so dense all these years (because "that old Testament stuff was just for the Jews" and you, as a high and mighty, holier-than-thou Christian were "under grace"), you HAD to set out to disprove the entire NT so you could spit in your pastor's eye.
And. oh goodie! There just happened to be some Jesus-rejecter groups on Facebook - and then BAM! Hook, line and sinker, you were enamored and very excited to have found a group that gave you a voice to let the whole world know that NOW you are a TRUE Bible expert ... that YOU have ALL the answers!
How very sad for you that, in your desire for revenge, you ended up completely blinded to YHWH's whole Truth. How sad that today, you cannot even admit that the pshat of Isaiah 53 is all about his Messiah - who, by the way - fulfilled at least 300 prophecies! (Before you get all huffy, what are the odds of someone doing that? None of the Jewish sages have ever accomplished that....)
No ... today you prefer to spend your time sitting there on your rump like some grand Poobah, "talking down" to and berating anyone who doesn't agree with your opinions about what you've been told Isaiah 53 supposedly “really means”; and challenging the world to show you the Torah scriptures that "mention Jesus by name".....
Well, that's fine. Do whatever you wish. However, since you can no longer remain civil with your fellow man, I suggest you keep your "Jesus hatred" to yourself and hang with your own kind, because - honestly - nobody is interested in a FORMER believer in YHWH's Messiah, who has rejected him, yet seems to be obsessed with dwelling on him, and endlessly talking about him on a daily basis. That kind of behavior is just plain hypocritical – not to mention, anti-Torah!
Proverbs 26:24-26 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart; when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart; though his hatred be covered with deception, his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
Proverbs 26:23 Like the glaze covering an earthen vessel are fervent lips with an evil heart.
