Do you have a problem acknowledging Yeshua as Messiah?


Y'shua haMashiyach was a Hebrew born into the Tribe of Yehudah (Judah). He had to be, to inherit David's throne and fulfill Messianic promises. The prophets didn't talk about a Gospel being fulfilled by a Roman or a Philistine or a Babylonian.

If being a HEBREW were only confined to Israel, then how do we explain the ministry of Jonah to Nineveh? How do we explain ALL RACES being judged and perishing in the flood of Noah? What about Melichzedek, Jethro and Job - all righteous and obedient servants ACCORDING TO TORAH and ALL being outside of Israel?

Torah and Gospel are the same thing. Why? Because the Gospels refer back to the Torah, which is YHWH's Divine Instruction in Righteousness, without which we would have NO blueprint for moral, holy living! The "New Testament" in no way replaced the "Old"; it serves to affirm Torah!

Yeshua summarized the Gospels through the Ten Commandments and Deuteronomy 6:4. His disciples, like James, talk about "the perfect Torah that is liberty," and Paul to Timothy says "ALL Scripture is fit for reproof" including that inconvenient "Torah of the Jews" that the Bereans themselves followed and were praised for following.

Rav Shaul (Rabbi Paul) kept a Nazirite vow, performed circumcision at least once and fasted on Yom Kippur. He had to rush home for Shavuot (Pentecost) and kept Saturday Shabbat 84 times - just in the book of Acts alone.

John defined sin as "transgression of the LAW" - Torah. And this is 30+ years after the resurrection and 15 years after the events of Acts 15....

As John says, "the new commandment is the old one that you have had from the beginning" - so, please don't try to suggest that the Brit Chadasha is a bunch of malarkey!
