It is written:
“Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah, he is a new creation — the old has passed; look, what has come is fresh and new!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
What a Blessing to have the assurance that we are united with the Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord! Yeshua’s suffering, death and resurrection has changed our lives: “If anyone is united with the Messiah, he is a new creation”.
Blessed be YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father, for His Beloved Son Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord!
Through a broken and contrite heart, in our union with Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, we have received a new heart and new nature; a clean and holy heart that is furnished for the service of YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, His Elohim and Father.
The Ruach HaKodesh (The Spirit of YHWH) is now dwelling by Faith with those that prepare him a habitation.
O so great is the change the Grace of YHWH, our Elohim and our Father, makes in our Life! As it follows, old things are passed away—old thoughts, old principles, and old practices, are passed away; all these things are becoming new.
Regenerating Grace creates a new world in our life; all things are new. As renewed man and women let us act from new principles, by new rules, with new ends, and in new company, including a New Life of growing obedience to YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, brought about by the Ruach HaKodesh (The Spirit of YHWH).
Let us testify by our obedience and separation from evil that the Spirit is truly at work among us.
Rather than still belonging to this world and its ways, all of us, Jews and non-Jews, united with the Messiah Yeshua, we are a “new creation,” which means that we have a new way of life that derives from a reorientation, as Yeshua HaMashiach, our Lord, “died on behalf of all in order that those who live should not live any longer for themselves but for the one who on their behalf died and was raised” (2 Corinthians 5:15).
Becoming a “new creation” refer to becoming like our Messiah Yeshua as we are being changed more and more into the likeness of our Messiah Yeshua, from one degree of glory to the next, by the Ruach HaKodesh, the Spirit of YHWH (2 Corinthians 3:18).
YHWH, the Elohim of Isra’el, through the Messiah Yeshua has reconciled us to Himself and now as a people living in union with Yeshua it is the beginning of the restoration of YHWH’s People under His Covenant.
So for us Believers in the Messiah, Jews and non-Jews, let us Pray for Israel and the Jewish people; let us be ambassadors of the Messiah and appeal to them on behalf of the Messiah, “Be reconciled to YHWH who made this sinless man Yeshua be a sin offering on our behalf, so that in union with him we might fully share in YHWH’s Righteousness” (2 Corinthians 5:20-21).
May they forget their past sin and look to YHWH’s work of restoration/new creation as reconciliation in the Messiah is the Promise of ‘RESTORATION’ from the alienation of exile by the atonement and forgiveness of sins in the Messiah.
“Shalom Aleikhem!” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord. Let us make every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of Shalom as there is ONE Body (ONE Isra’el of G-d, One People of G-d) and ONE Spirit. We have been called to ONE Hope. And there is ONE Lord, Yeshua HaMashiach, ONE Trust, ONE immersion, and ONE Elohim, YHWH, the Father of ALL, who Rules over ALL, works through ALL and is in ALL (Ephesians 4:4-6).
