It is written:
“Also I have other sheep which are not from this pen; I need to bring them, and they will hear my voice; and there will be one flock, one shepherd.” (John 10:16)
The Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, was first sent to the lost sheep of the house of Isra’el (Matthew 15:24), but said that He had other sheep who are all of us the non-Jews coming to Believe in Him and brought into obedience to Him.
The Good News of the JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA was not confined to Israel, but extends to the rest of the world.
We have been chosen of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, and given, in His Divine Love, to His Beloved Son Yeshua the Messiah.
“There will be One flock, One Shepherd”: Now is “The Time” to see this picture of Jews and non-Jews uniting in One sheepfold as Yeshua promised!
In Romans 11:11-31 Paul explains that Believers in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, are grafted into One Tree…a Jewish Tree and we are ALL, Jews and non-Jews, nourished from the same Root.
Yes, we the non-Jews have been grafted into this Jewish Tree as wild olive branches while Jewish Believers are grafted into the same Tree, which is their own Tree.
As we can see, ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, intended for us, the non-Jews Believers in Yeshua the Messiah, to live in UNITY with the Jewish People at large, and especially so with Jewish Believers.
This is one more reason for us to keep very close to our Jewish roots, praying together, Jews and non-Jews, and celebrating the Jewish festivals and holidays, as Yeshua the Messiah did.
What ties us together, Jewish and non-Jewish Believers, is our shared Faith in the Jewish Messiah; it is our common Root.
May the expression of our Faith be entirely in keeping with Judaism, for it was not the intention of the Messiah to start another religion. ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, never intended such dissociation from Judaism as we can see today.
Yeshua the Messiah never taught us to break the Torah and the commandments, although He sometimes called into question the traditional laws or teachings, such as not eating without before ritually washing hands (Luke 11:38).
Now is the Time for us to stand in unity with Israel and with the Jewish Believers as One New Man, defying and healing the division that was sown early among Believers in Yeshua.
The Jewish people are returning to their land, and “The Day” is coming when “The kingdom of David” will be restored. When this will happen it will involves UNITY between Jews and non-Jews followers of Yeshua the Messiah, in the Isra’el of God.
Israel and the Jewish people are central to God’s plan for the nations. When Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, returns to Reign, it will be the dramatic proof to the nations that ADONAI (YHWH), our God, has not forsaken Israel.
“The nations will know that I am ADONAI, who sets Isra’el apart as holy, when my sanctuary is with them forever.’” (Ezekiel 37:28Complete Jewish Bible) (Revelation 21)
Then we, Jews and non-Jews, will live in UNITY, that UNITY which ADONAI (YHWH), our God, originally intended and which was tasted among the first followers of Yeshua the Messiah.
Then Jews and non-Jews, we will be, at last, ONE FLOCK (One People of God, One Isra’el of God), with ONE SHEPHERD (The JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, our Lord)!
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.
