It is written:
“Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze on what lies in front of you. Level the path for your feet, let all your ways be properly prepared; then deviate neither right nor left; and keep your foot far from evil.” (Proverbs 4:25-27 Complete Jewish Bible)
Yes, let us ponder the path of our feet. Which path are we on? The pathway we choose will either draw us closer to YAHWEH, the Elohim of Isra’el, the KING of the Universe, our Elohim and AVINU SHE-BA-SHAMAYIM (Heb. אָבִינוּ שָׁבַּשָׁמַיִם; “Our Father in Heaven”), or take us off course.
In our union with the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, let us set our heart on studying and practicing the Torah of YAHWEH, his Elohim and Father, our Elohim.
Yeshua Ha-Mashiach did not come to start a new religion under a new name (Jesus) with new regulations and new doctrines; He came to bring us, Jews and non-Jews, as ONE People, ONE Family into the Isra’el of His Elohim and Father, YAHWEH, our Elohim and AVINU MALKENU (Heb. אָבִינוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ; “Our Father, our King”).
For Yeshua the Messiah, our Friend and Master, did not come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. He came not to abolish but to complete (Matthew 5:17). Yes, Yeshua did not come for the Torah to die; He came for our flesh to die!
Yeshua the Messiah came as a human being with a nature like our own, but without sin, so that the just requirement of the Torah might be fulfilled in us so we may not run anymore our lives according to what our old nature wants but according to what the Spirit wants.
For those who identify with their old nature set their minds on the things of the old nature, but those who identify with the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit (Romans 8:5).
Having one’s mind controlled by the old nature is death, but having one’s mind controlled by the Spirit is Life and Shalom. For the mind controlled by the old nature is hostile to YAHWEH, because it does not submit itself to YAHWEH’s Torah — indeed, it cannot (Romans 8:6-7).
As we are, Jews and non–Jews, in union with the Messiah Yeshua, the “Spiritual Isra’el” of YAHWEH, may YAHWEH, our Elohim and our Father, put His Torah in our minds and write it on our hearts (Hebrews 8:10), for Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, our Master, 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).
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM!” to ALL the Isra’el Family, consisting of those who have been set apart, Jews and non-Jews, by Yeshua the Messiah and called to be YAHWEH’s holy people.
It is by virtue of our interest in the “Hebrew and Jewish” Messiah Yeshua, our relation to him, and our union with him, that we are SECURED. Let us restore the path of Torah so we can be a force for good, and proclaim liberty to those in spiritual captivity.
