The words below weren't given to just the Jews. Remember, there were 12 Tribes AND the foreigners who had followed Moshe out of Egypt camped at the foot of Mt. Sinair when YHWH handed down the Torah!
In Numbers 15:13-16, He said four times in a row that ALL who accept Him as their God, were to do exactly as His people did and that the same Torah and standard of judgment would apply to both, the Hebrews and the foreigner living with them.
When Moshe's successor, Joshua, was appointed as leader of the Israelites, ADONAI Himself said the following ... which echoes into our own life today:
Joshua 1: 7 Only be strong and very bold in taking care to follow all the Torah which Moshe my servant ordered you to follow; do not turn from it either to the right or to the left; then you will succeed wherever you go. 8 Yes, keep this book of the Torah on your lips, and meditate on it day and night, so that you will take care to act according to everything written in it.

Sorry for the delay in our response. Technical issues. Wish we had an easy answer for you. Keep your eyes open in you local "rags" (newspapers, community publications, etc.) you may find a group. Also, join your local "nextdoor.com" site (if in your area) - you may find others there. You can also simply google search on "messianic congregation near me". And don't be afraid to simply go to Christian churches and talk to people about your faith. You may find others there who are also looking!ReplyDelete
