It is written:

“Therefore, tell them that Adonai-Tzva’ot says this: ‘“Return to me,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot, “and I will return to you,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot.” (Zechariah 1:3)

In God’s Name, let us return to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, and make Peace with Him, through a union with His Beloved Son, “The Jewish Messiah Yeshua”.

It is through a union with Yeshua HaMashiach (“Our Jewish Messiah”), that all of us, Jews and non-Jews, will be able to return to Adonai-Tzva’ot and for Him to return to us. (Zechariah 1:3).

Yeshua  HaMashiach, “The Jewish Messiah” IS the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).

ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, is the God of Love and Peace. He is the author of Peace, and Lover of concord. He Love us, and is willing to be at Peace with us; He commands us to Love Him, and to be Reconciled to Him through His Beloved Son, “The Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, and also that we love one another, and be at peace among ourselves.

It is only through a union with Yeshua HaMashiach that Justice will well up like water, and Righteousness like an ever-flowing stream, a Righteousness that is like His own, dependable and strong; a Righteousness that comes from God, through the Faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who continue TRUSTING (Romans 3:22)

May ADONAI (YHWH), our God, bring us to the place where His Beloved Son, “The Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, is ALL things and we will no longer be shaken.

Yes, let us return to Him in a way of Faith and Repentance, Duty and Obedience, and He will turn to us in a way of Favour and Mercy, Peace and Reconciliation.

When ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, speaks, we are bound to regard what He says. The consideration of God’s Almighty Power and Sovereign Dominion should both engage and encourage sinners to repent and turn to Him. It is very desirable to have ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, as our God, through a union with His Beloved Son, “The Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, and very dreadful to have Him as our enemy.

Let us re-establish the ways of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God and Father,  in our lives.

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha’Olam, Sh’hecheyanu, V’Kiyemanu, V’Higianu LaZman HaZeh.

Praised are You, ADONAI (YHWH), our God, Ruler of the Universe, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this moment.

Shabbat Shalom to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord

This Post is in response to the Bible verse posted on Facebook: 2Peter 1:2

It is written:

May grace and shalom be yours in full measure, as you come to a full knowledge of God and Yeshua our Lord. (2 Peter 1:2)

First, I want to give thanks to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, for giving to me “the foreigner” an opportunity to join His Spiritual Isra’el, through my union with His Beloved Son, the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord.

The knowledge of ADONAI (YHWH), our God, and of Yeshua HaMashiach (the Messiah), our Lord, are connected because ADONAI (YHWH) the God of our Salvation is known only through our union with “The Jewish man, Yeshua HaMashiach” (the Messiah).

ADONAI (YHWH) is the God of Isra’el, our ONE and ONLY TRUE God. There is only One and Only True ELOHIM: YHWH, as it is written: “Sh’ma, Yisra’el! Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai echad [Hear, Isra’el! Adonai our God, Adonai is one]; (Deuteronomy 6:4).

Yes, ADONAI (YHWH) is our ONE TRUE God; we are to have no other gods before Him. (Exodus 20:1-3).

ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, is our Saviour (Isaiah 43:1-3). There is no other God besides Him (Deuteronomy 6:4); He is our Only Just God and Saviour; It is Him who is God and there is none besides Him (Isaiah 45:21-22).  His Beloved Son Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, is His instrument of our Salvation.

Yeshua the Messiah is not YHWH. He is the Son of God, our “Jewish Messiah”, our lord, who is anointed by His God and Father, our God, the God of Isra’el, to be “The Instrument of our Salvation” and to fulfill the expected functions of His office of Ministry.

Yeshua the Messiah, is the Faithful Witness, the Firstborn from the dead and the Ruler of the earth’s kings (Revelation 1:5). He has freed us from our sins at the cost of His blood, and made of us a kingdom, that is, cohanim for ADONAI(YHWH), His God and Father (Revelation 1: 6)

What do we know so far about Yeshua, our Jewish Messiah, “The Son of God”:

Yeshua was and is a Jew. He was born a Jew, He lived as a Jew and He died a Jew (John 19:40). Yeshua was a Rabbi (John 1:38), a Torah observant Jew and He taught His followers to be Torah observant (1 John 3:4; Matthew 5:17-19). He did not come to destroy the Torah but to fulfill the Torah.

He was born of the seed of David and in the city of David which is called Bethlehem, as it was written: “But you, Beit-Lechem near Efrat, so small among the clans of Y’hudah, out of you will come forth to me the future ruler of Isra’el, whose origins are far in the past, back in ancient times.” (Micah 5:1)

Yeshua was circumcised the eighth day as is the custom for the birth of a Jewish boy. His name is Yeshua which in Hebrew means “ADONAI Saves”.

Yeshua was born a Jew as God instrument of Salvation for the world and to be the Messiah of  ALL the House of Isra’el (which includes ALL of us, Jews and non-Jews united to Yeshua the Messiah. Halleluyah !)

Yes, Yeshua the Messiah, the Beloved Son of God, is the Tzaddik (Advocate), who pleads our cause with the Father.  Also, He is the kapparah (atoning sacrifice) for our sins — and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world (1 John 2:1-2).

The way we can be sure we know Him is if we are obeying His commands (1 John 2:3); Yeshua the Messiah is the Living Word of God, the Living Torah of God (John 1:14) and His commands are those of ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God.

ADONAI ELOHIM (YHWH) is the God and Father of Yeshua the Messiah who is the instrument of our Salvation and the Only Mediator between God and humanity, as it is written: “For God is one; and there is but one Mediator between God and humanity, Yeshua the Messiah, himself human” (1 Timothy 2:5).

The man Yeshua the Messiah is the ONLY MEDIATOR between the God of Isra’el, our God, and man (1 Timothy 2:5); His death sets us free from our transgressions, so all of us, Jews and non-Jews, who have been called, may receive the promised eternal inheritance (Hebrews 9:15).

For the moment Yeshua is our High Priest, so for us whom God has set apart, who share in the call from heaven, let us think carefully about Yeshua, whom we acknowledge publicly as God’s emissary and as cohen gadol. (Heb. 3:1).

Yeshua did not came to start a new religion with new rules; He came to fulfill the will of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, His God and Father so through Him we could be grafted to the “Spiritual Isra’el of God” forming, Jews and non-Jews, only ONE People, “The People of God”! By His death, He has created in union with Himself from the two groups a single new humanity and thus make Shalom, and has reconciled us to ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, both in a SINGLE Body (Ephesians 2: 15-16).

“Jews and non-Jews” we are united in the Messiah! In the Messiah we are ONE! We are ONE Family, “The Family of God”, “The Spiritual Isra’el” of God! Glory to God!

Let us give thanks to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, who pour out His Spirit (The Ruach HaKodesh) in our lives to bring restoration, reconciliation and unity to both the Jews and non-Jews through our union with His Beloved Son Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord.

Now in our union with the Messiah, we are fellow-citizens with God’s people and members of God’s Family. We have been built on the foundation of the emissaries and the prophets, with the cornerstone being Yeshua the Messiah Himself (Ephesians 2:19-20); Jews and non-Jews, we have equal rights and privileges, heirs of the same promises.

Yes, in union with Yeshua the Messiah, we are, Jews and non-Jews, being built together into a spiritual dwelling-place for our God! May the Ruach HaKodesh (The Spirit of God) help us to realize and take it all by Faith and to enter into the Plan of God by Faith.

Also, it is ADONAI (YHWH) who is “THE WORD”. His Beloved Son Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord is the Spokesperson (“Because the one whom God sent speaks God’s words. For God does not give Him the Spirit in limited degree (John 3:34)”).

That is why Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, has been given the Name of “The Word of God”. He came to accomplish it. His food was the Word of God. He only spoke His God and Father’s Words. His teaching was the Word of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, His God and Father, our God.

He was Faithful to God, who appointed him; just as “Moshe was faithful in all God’s house.” But Yeshua deserves more honour than Moshe, just as the builder of the house deserves more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but the one who built everything is God. Also, Moshe was faithful in all God’s house, as a servant giving witness to things God would divulge later. But the Messiah, as Son, was faithful over God’s house. And we are, Jews and non-Jews in union with the Messiah Yeshua, that house of His, provided we hold firmly to the courage and confidence inspired by what we hope for (Hebrews 3:2-6).

May this be the cry of our heart: to have a full knowledge of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our One and Only God and Father! Yes, to have a full knowledge of Him and of His Son Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord.

 

“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.

It is written:

“He gave himself up on our behalf in order to free us from all violation of Torah and purify for himself a people who would be his own, eager to do good.” (Titus 2:14)

The Kindness and Love for mankind of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, our Deliverer, were revealed through His Beloved Son, the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord.

Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, gave Himself up on our behalf in order to free us from all violation of the Torah (not from the blessings of the Torah) and purify for Himself a people, so that together, Jews and non-Jews, we might constitute a People who would be His own (Titus 2:14) . He took on Himself the full measure of the curse that was meant for us, accepting the penalty for our sins.

We regarded Him as punished, stricken and afflicted by God, but in fact, it was our diseases He bore, our pains from which He suffered; He was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him, and by His bruises we are healed (Isaiah 53:4-5)

The Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, redeemed us from the curse pronounced in the Torah by becoming cursed on our behalf; for the Tanakh says, “Everyone who hangs from a stake comes under a curse” (Galatians 3:13).

There on the execution stake, Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, took all of our curses so that we could experience His blessings.  Now in our union with Him, we are no longer alienated from ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God, and we have His Torah inscribed on our hearts (Jeremiah 31:32(33)), not through external laws on stone tablets, but internally in our very souls.

As the Beloved Son of God, the Perfect Isra’el, through whom ADONAI (YHWH), our God, is showing His Glory (Isaiah 49:3), the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, came to Love, Heal and Forgive. He lived and died to buy our pardon; that does not mean we can now turn our backs on the Torah.

Let us continue to expect the blessed fulfillment of our certain hope, which is the appearing of the Sh’khinah of ADONAI (YHWH), our great God, and the appearing of our Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah.

 

Shabbat Shalom

Thank you “Lovers of Israel” for reminding me of the Psalm 126:4.

It is written:

“Return our people from exile, Adonai, as streams fill vadis in the Negev.” (Psalm 126:4)

Let us Pray for the land of Israel and for the peace of Yerushalayim, for the great and terrible Day of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, is coming (Joel 3:4 (2:31))

At that time, when He will restore the fortunes of Y’hudah and Yerushalayim, ADONAI (YHWH), our God will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Y’hoshafat [Adonai judges].  He will enter into judgment there for His People, His heritage Isra’el (Joel 4:1-2 (3:1-2))

Then the nations will realize that it is wrong to divide Israel as ADONAI (YHWH), our God, will judge the nations for doing so.

Yes, the Day of ADONAI is upon us in the Valley of Decision! ADONAI will roar from Tziyon, He will thunder from Yerushalayim, the sky and the earth will shake (Joel 4 (3): 16)

But ADONAI will be a refuge for His People, a stronghold for the people of Isra’el (Joel 4(3):16). At that time, whoever calls on the name of ADONAI will be Saved (Joel 3:5 (2:32))

May ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, stir up the hearts Israel to take the benefit of the Liberty granted through the Great work of Salvation by the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.

If Yerushalayim only knew today what is needed for Shalom! Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, is the ultimate source of Shalom.

“The Day” of Yeshua’s return is drawing ever nearer and True Peace will come when the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace), returns.

As for us in our union with the Messiah Yeshua, now is “The Time” to recognize ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, and His Beloved Son, the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Lord, as the source of our Shalom.

“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.

It is written:

“For the goal at which the Torah aims is the Messiah, who offers righteousness to everyone who trusts.” (Romans 10:4)

Few days ago this verse of the Bible was posted on Facebook. Yes, the goal at which the Torah aims is the Messiah, but He is not the end of the Torah. We have forgotten that Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, the Living Torah, lived the Torah, taught the Torah, and we have walked away from the Torah.

Yeshua the Messiah never taught us to break the Torah and the commandments, as even Himself said: “whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.”  (Matthew 5:19).

Let us not think that Yeshua came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets, for He came not to abolish but to complete (Matthew 5:17).  He did not come for the Torah to die; He came for our flesh to die!

Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, delivered us from the curse of the Torah but not from the Torah itself. Praise God!

While Yeshua the Messiah has removed from us the curse of the Torah, He has not removed from us the Blessings of the Torah. Let us follow His example in keeping the Torah of the Spirit.

ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, was pleased, for His righteousness’ sake, to make the Torah great and glorious (Isaiah 42:21); and we know that the Torah is good, provided one uses it in the way the Torah itself intends (Timothy 1:8).

The Torah of ADONAI (YHWH) is Perfect (without defect), restoring the inner person (Psalm 19:8). The Rulings of ADONAI (YHWH) are true, they are righteous altogether, more desirable than gold, than much fine gold, also sweeter than honey (Psalm 19:10-11).

Which brings me to the following: “ADONAI, why do you let us wanders from your ways and hardens our hearts, so that we do not fear you?” (Isaiah 63:17).  ADONAI (YHWH), God of Isra’el, our God and Father, hear our prayer, we have sinned before You. Have compassion upon us and upon our children. May Your Torah be written in our hearts, so we may follow in the footsteps of Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, who came to do Your will.

As for us, through our union with His Beloved Son Yeshua, ADONAI (YHWH), our God, made the Covenant with us to put His Torah within us and write it on our hearts (Jeremiah 31:32(33)). The Torah is for today!

Let us restore the path of Torah so we can be a force for good, and proclaim Liberty through the “Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, to those in spiritual captivity.

“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.

It is written:

“I will put my Spirit inside you and cause you to live by my laws, respect my rulings and obey them.” (Ezekiel 36:27)

Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, lived the Torah, taught the Torah. Out of a heart of Love, not in a spirit of legalism, in our union with Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, let us follow and obey ADONAI (YHWH)’s commandments in the Torah (Ezekiel 36:27).

ADONAI (YHWH) the God of Isra’el, our God, has put His Spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh within us, as a teacher and a guide, to work a good work in us, in order to qualify us for the good work He intended to bring about for us.

He has chosen us, and Love us. He has cleansed us from the pollutions of sin and purified us, through the blood of His Beloved Son Yeshua.

ADONAI (YHWH), our God, is going to do His part according to His Promises, let us do ours according to His Precepts and walk in His statutes. Not only He will show us what His will is, but will teach us how to do it.

Let us not fear the face of man, nor the dangers we may meet with in the way of our duty. ADONAI (YHWH), our God, has delivered us from the spirit of fear, and has given us the spirit of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, which will carry us through the opposition we may meet with.

In our union with the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, we are ALL, Jews and non-Jews, “The Isra’el of God”, “The People of God”.  Let us live to the Glory of ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God, and by His Grace.

Y’varekh’kha Adonai v’yishmerekha. [May ADONAI Bless you and Keep you.]

Ya’er Adonai panav eleikha vichunekka. [May ADONAI make His face shine on you and show you His favor.]

Yissa Adonai panav eleikha v’yasem l’kha shalom.[May ADONAI lift up His face toward you and give you Peace.]’

Grace and Shalom to you ALL, Jews and non-Jews, from ADONAI (YHWH) our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

It is written:

“Here is what Adonai says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask about the ancient paths, ‘Which one is the good way?’ Take it, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)

In our union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, let us re-establish our closeness to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, His God and Father; as we are His People, His Isra’el, and He is our God, let us return to Him with ALL our heart.

In this month of “Elul” according to the Jewish calendar, let us keep the Jewish People in prayer, praying that as they seek the face of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, in repentance, they will come to know the Jewish Messiah Yeshua (The Living Torah), our Lord, as their long-awaited Messiah.

(The Torah is a faithful expression of God’s character. God sent His Beloved Son Yeshua to keep the Torah for us (The Man Yeshua HaMashiach is the Living Torah of God). The Torah no longer condemns us, setting us free to accept it as our own guide for pleasing the One who died in our place.)

May they ponder the path of their feet and find the right way which will bring them to their journey’s end, for the Jewish Messiah Yeshua is “The Way”, “The Truth” and “The Life”; no one comes to ADONAI (YHWH), “The Father” except through Him (John 14:6). Faith in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua relates us rightly to ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God.

Walking in union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, may cost us some pains, but it is the way that will lead us to True Rest and we will find an abundant recompense at our journey’s end.

It is only through a union with Yeshua HaMashiach that Justice will well up like water, and Righteousness like an ever-flowing stream, a Righteousness that is like His own, dependable and strong; a Righteousness that comes from God, through the Faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who continue TRUSTING (Romans 3:22)

Yeshua HaMashiach is “The One” who offers Righteousness to everyone who TRUSTS. (Romans 10:4)

The blood of Yeshua HaMashiach is the Foundation and the basis of our acceptance before God. The Righteousness of God must be received now that it “has been manifested”.

Let us also pray for the nation of Israel and for our own nations as sin makes a gap in the hedge of protection for the nations; let us stand in the gap, and make up the breach, by repentance, and prayer, and reformation for Israel and our nations.

As it is written: “If my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and “HEAL THEIR LAND”(2 Chronicles 7:14).

So as Moshe (Moses) stood in the gap when he made intercession for Israel let us also in our union with the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, stand in the gap for Israel and our nations, and let us remember that Repentance is not solely about a change in attitude; it is about a change in direction, turning from our wicked ways, and returning to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, from whom we have revolted.

ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, is Merciful and Compassionate, slow to anger, rich in Grace and Truth;  showing Grace to the thousandth generation, forgiving offenses, crimes and sins (Exodus 34:5-7), through His Beloved Son, the Jewish Messiah Yeshua who gave His life for us.

Praised be ADONAI (YHWH), the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah (Romans 15:6), who, in keeping with His Great Mercy, has caused us, through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah from the dead, to be born again to a LIVING HOPE, to an inheritance that cannot decay, spoil or fade, kept safe for us in Heaven (1 Peter 1:3-4).

Grace and Shalom to you all, Jews and non-Jews, from ADONAI (YHWH) our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
