While Christianity is far off to the left of the straight and narrow path, disregarding Torah altogether, Messianic Judaism is equally off to the right, clinching onto the man-made doctrines of the Talmud while forsaking the Torah.
There are many examples of how Messianic Judaism in General is as far off to the right from the truth as Christianity is off to the left. Messianic Judaism although Messianic in theory is nothing more than Messianic Rabbinical Judaism. Messianic Judaism still clinches onto the very doctrines of the Talmud that the Messiah set us free from. On numerous occasions, I have personally witnessed and experienced many of their man-made traditions and in some cases the legalism (law on the law) that is pushed while ignoring the Scripture altogether.
One of the experiences that comes up first in my mind is the pushing of head coverings for men. Although subtle it was clear where they stood on this issue. Many times I was asked if I would like to wear a Kippah or if I had a Kippah or asked if I forgot my Kippah. I was never asked if I would like to wear a Tallit or if I had a Tallit or if I forgot my Tallit. It was clear that they were strongly encouraging (pushing) wearing the Kippah but not the Tallit.
Let me say that I have nothing against anyone wearing a Kippah, as I have been known to wear a Kippah now and then but it is a man-made tradition, it is not Mitzvot (commandment or instruction). The very first thing that comes to mind is this passage in the Brit Hadashah.
Then there came to Y'shua scribes and Pharisees from Yerushalayim, saying. "Why do your taught ones transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread." But He answering, said to them, "Why do you also transgress the command of Elohim because of your tradition? (ISR Mattithyahu 15:1-3)
The scenario in the above passage is obviously referring to a matter other than Kippahs (head covering) and Tallits (four cornered garment with tassels). However, the basic premises can still be applied to this matter. Why, when I look inside a Messianic Synagogue, most of the men are blindly following the man-made doctrines of the Talmud (traditions of the elders) by wearing a Kippah but only about half of them observe the Torah by wearing the Tallit? Wearing a Kippah is nothing other than man-made tradition. However, wearing the Tallit is a Mitzvot (commandment or instruction) given in Torah by our heavenly Father.
"Make tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself. (ISR Debarim 22:12)
Where are the blue cords that are suppose to be on the Tzitzit (fringes, tassels) of the Tallits in Messianic Synagogues? It is one of the 613 Mitzvot (commandment or instruction) that we have a blue cord in the Tzitzit of our Tallits. Let's read a passage from the Torah.
And YaHuWaH spoke to Mosheh, saying, "Speak to the children of Yisra'el, and you shall say to them to make tzitziyot on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue cord in the tzitzit of the corners. (ISR Bemidbar 15:37-38)
Why, out of those who even wear a Tallit, do they not have a blue cord on their Tzitzit? Why are all the Tallits that belong to the Synagogue absent of the blue cords? It is because of man-made traditions of Talmud. Messianic Judaism would rather follow Talmud than Torah.
It was traditional superstition of the Talmud that says that the blue dye had to come from a certain snail in the dead sea and because Jews could not be sure on the source of the dye they simply stopped dyeing the cords blue. However, the Torah says absolutely nothing about the source of the dye, but if one wanted to use this special dye it is available today.
One of the strangest man-made traditions of Rabbinical Judaism that Messianic Jews follow is refraining to wear a Tallit during evening services. I did not realize why they do not wear a Tallit at night and did not give much thought to this Rabbinical tradition until I was researching the Talmud for other information concerning the Tallit such as with blue cords.
The Talmud basically says that since it is written in the Torah that we should see the Tzitzit (tassels) on the Tallit (four cornered garment) that we should refrain from wearing it at night. You can see how the Rabbi's got carried away with their tradition in this passage.
"And it shall be to you a tzitzit, and you shall see it, and shall remember all the commands of YaHuWaH and shall do them, and not search after your own heart and your own eyes after which you went whoring, (ISR Bemidbar 15:39)
The Talmud says that since we can not see in the dark that it is implied in the above passage that we are not suppose to wear the Tallit at night. They isolated a few words and have taken them out of context to make their own doctrine. The passage says nothing about only wearing the Tallit during the day or removing the Tallit at night. The passage simply gives the reason for making the Tzitzit, so when we see it, we remember. When you think about the structure of the passage in question there is no way to word it any better.
What the Rabbi's have done here is absurd to say the least but sadly it is a common practice of Rabbinical Judaism including Messianic Judaism. The practice of taking a single word or strand of words out of context, isolating them or taking them too literal is one of five fundamental rules or pillars of Rabbinical Judaism which explains other doctrinal flaws.
Since we are on the subject of garments, what about wearing mixed materials? Oh, have no idea what I am talking about? That is because it is not taught in your Messianic Synagogue. The fear of man prevails on this issue as well, leadership in Messianic Judaism seems to be spineless when it comes to teaching truth when it involves getting out of their comfort zone.
"Guard My laws. Do not let your livestock mate with another kind. Do not sow your field with mixed seed. And do not put a garment woven of two sorts of thread upon you. (ISR Wayyiqra 19:19)
I am not suggesting clothing police or checking the tags on the clothing of individuals as they enter the sanctuary. I am only suggesting that the matter should be addressed in the congregation so individuals are able to make an educated decision based on personal conviction and what Scripture says. Let us read one more passage concerning this matter.
"Do not sow your vineyard with different kinds of seed, lest the yield of the seed which you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard be defiled. "Do not plough with an ox and a donkey together. "Do not put on a garment of different kinds, of wool and linen together. (ISR Debarim 22:9-11)
Maybe the passages in question are just too difficult to understand. I can see where it can be very difficult to understand the part where it says "Do not" that is a real tough phrase. Maybe it is just too hard to fathom being set-apart from the rest of the world and having to look at more labels before you buy. I am sure many women would not want to give up their favorite outfit and men that would not want to spend that extra dollar to remain obedient.
Why is it so hard to tell people the truth about certain subjects? Why is everyone quiet about this matter? I will be the first to admit that it is much harder to find material that has not been adulterated and clothing that is not mongrelized. In reality it is not any different than looking at food labels for gelatin (usually made from pork) or any other unclean things.
Another example of how traditional Judaism (man-made doctrine) prevails over Scripture in Messianic Judaism is the order of the blessings. Even though Messiah was our example of how we should do things in Messianic Judaism man-made tradition prevails. In Judaism it is traditional to bless the wine before the bread, but the Messiah blessed the bread before the wine. Should not He, our Messiah be our example? Let us read a passage from Scripture.
And as they were eating, Y'shua took bread, and having blessed, broke and gave it to the taught ones and said 'Take eat, this is my body." And taking the cup, and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. (ISR Mattithyahu 26:26-27)
Although this is a minor matter, it is yet another example of how we are shown what to do and how to do it in the Scripture but in many cases Messianic Judaism in general will follow the traditions of men and the ways of Rabbinical Judaism over what we know as the truth.
Since we are on the subject of eating...this has to be the silliest of all Rabbinical traditions. The Talmud says that we are to replace the Passover Lamb with a Passover Chicken since the second Temple was destroyed in the year 70 CE. Sadly, Messianic Judaism also follow this practice of partaking of a chicken in place of the lamb on Passover. Let me say this, there was not a temple during the first Passover when this commandment was given to us.
'Let the lamb be a perfect one, a year old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats. (ISR Shemoth 12:5)
This is one of those hard to understand passages again. The hard part to understand must be the part where the passage in question says "Take it from the sheep or the goats". I see where you just naturally want to add chicken or even turkey to the end of the passage.
My Messiah is not a chicken nor is He a turkey! The only chickens I see are the spineless cowards afraid to stand up to the leaders in the Messianic community that teach these false doctrines. The turkeys I see are the spineless cowards teaching these perverted doctrines.
This doctrine is not as silly as I previously thought, it is outright perversion, a disgrace, and wickedness at its best. As I looked at the Scripture to find an appropriate passage to share, I started to imagine how these verses would read when Lamb is replaced with Chicken.
And I looked and saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders a Chicken standing, as having been slain... (ISR Revelation 5:6)
And when He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Chicken... (ISR Revelation 5:8)
And I looked, and I heard the voice of many messengers around the throne, and the living creatures, and the elders. And the number of them were myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Chicken having been slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and respect and esteem and blessing!" (ISR Revelation 5:11&12)
And I saw when the Chicken opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, like a sound of thunder, "Come and see." (ISR Revelation 6:1)
And the sovereigns of the earth, and the great ones, and the rich ones, and the commanders, and the mighty, and every slave and every free one, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks "Fall on us and hid us from the face of Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Chicken, (ISR Revelation 6:15&16)
Do you suppose they must be afraid of being pecked to death by the giant chicken? I have shared only five passages with you from the book of Revelation. Try doing the same with Revelation 7:9, 7:10, 7:14, 7:17, 12:11, 13:8, 13:11, 14:1, 14:4, 14:10, 15:3, 17:14, 19:7, 19:9, 21:14, 21:22, 22:1 and 22:3. My Messiah is graceful like a lamb, He does not crow when the sun rises nor cluck during the day. I reject every pathetic excuse given by the Rabbi's of the past and every perversion in the Talmud regarding a sacrificial chicken.
The Scripture is very clear that we as believers are not to be called Rabbi. The Messiah said that we should not be called Rabbi. So why do the leaders in the Messianic Jewish community allow their congregations to address them as Rabbi? More importantly why do Messianic Jews insist on calling their leaders Rabbi? Let us see what our Messiah has to say.
"and they love the best places at the feasts, and the best seats in the congregations, and the greetings in the market-places, and to be called by men 'Rabbi, Rabbi.' "But you, do not be called 'Rabbi,' for One is your Rabbi, the Messiah, and you are all brothers. (ISR Mattithyahu 23:6-8)
The word Rabbi does not simply mean teacher like many people have been led to believe. The Greek word for Rabbi is rhabbi hrab-bee' Strongs #4461 which means my master. The Greek word for Lord is kurios koo'-ree-os Strongs #2962 which also means master. The Hebrew word for Lord is adonai aw-done-eye Strongs #113 which also means master. The word Rabbi essentially has the same meaning as lord. When you call a man Rabbi or refer to someone as your Rabbi you are referring to him the same way as the Most High.
Do you think that Messianic Jewish leaders may be hanging onto some man-made tradition so that they can appear to be more "Jewish" in what is perceived as traditional Judaism? After all they wouldn't want to have a Pastor, then they would sound like Christians. Are they afraid of letting go of those man-made doctrines? Where did Christians get the idea to call their leaders Pastors anyway? Let us read another passage from the Brit Hadashah.
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, (NKJ Ephesians 4:11)
We see here where Christians get the term pastor from. The translation in the New King James version is incorrect. The word pastor in this particular translation comes from the Greek word poimen poy-mane Strongs #4166 which means shepherd. In fact this word is translated as shepherd 17 times and only translated as pastor in this passage and no other.
The word that was translated as poimen in Greek and into pastor in English is the Hebrew word ra'ah raw-ah Strongs #7462 which also means shepherd. According to Scripture the correct English title for the leader of a congregation would be shepherd or ra'ah if you were looking for a Hebrew title that sounded a little more Jewish. Would it be too much to refer to the leader of a congregation as Ra'ah or HaRa'ah? Or is that not traditional enough?
Mysteriously, Elohim (God) went through a name change from YaHuWaH to Adonai and only those in traditional Rabbinical Talmud Keeping Judaism including Messianic Judaism know about this secret name change. Not really, the name of Elohim is written almost seven thousand times in Scripture as YHWH (Yod-Hay-Waw-Hay) pronounced YaHuWaH or Yahuweh.
The Fathers name YaHuWaH pronounced Yahuah Strongs #3068 is spelled with the Aramaic or Hebrew letters YHWH (Yod-Hay-Waw-Hay). The Fathers abbreviated name Yah Strongs #3050 spelled with the Aramaic or Hebrew letters YH (Yod-Hay) appears forty-nine times in the Scripture. This is how we get Hebrew names like Mattithyahu (Matthew) which means gift from YaHuWaH and Hebrew words like halleluyah which means praise be unto Yah.
The name of our creator is not adonai as it has been written in some Jewish Bibles. The Hebrew word adonai is spelled with the Hebrew letters ADNY (Aleph-Dalet-Nun-Yod) Strongs #113 and means master. The word adonai is rendered as a lower case lord in Christian and Jewish translations alike but in more accurate versions translated as master.
This is where it gets really confusing, probably by design by those against using His name. In many Jewish translations, including the Complete Jewish Bible, the name of YaHuWaH is removed and replaced with Adonai which we already know is not His name but a title that is already used throughout Scripture. In other words they take His name YaHuWaH and change it to Adonai but because the word adonai is already in use by the Scripture they then change adonai to a lower case lord to make the distinction between the two thoughts. In essence they are simply playing musical chairs with words between Hebrew and English.
In most Christian translations the name of YaHuWaH is removed and replaced with THE LORD in upper case and small caps. This is also confusing because they translate the Hebrew word adonai into a lower case lord to distinguish between the two thoughts. In essence they are taking two entirely different ideas, a name and a title then translating them into a single word. They are simply playing games with word when translating from Hebrew into English.
These practices violate Scripture in many places such as: adding and removing from the Word of Elohim, and using the name in Vain. Let us read some passages from the Scripture.
"Till when shall it be in the heart of the prophets? - the prophets of falsehood and prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget my Name by their dreams which everyone relates to his neighbour, as their fathers forgot My Name for Ba'al. (ISR Yirmeyahu 23:26-27) -- Rabbinical Judaism?
"Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of YaHuWaH your Elohim which I am commanding you. (ISR Debarim 4:2) -- Like replacing His Name YaHuWaH with Adonai or THE LORD.
I am YaHuWaH, that is My Name, and my esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols. (ISR Yeshayahu 42:8) -- Now it's clear and we know His name!
"You do not bring the name of YaHuWaH your Elohim to naught, for YaHuWaH does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. (ISR Shemoth 20:7)
I know this subject can be very confusing for some people to grasp so I just want to rehash. Everywhere there is a lower case lord in Scripture, the original Aramaic and Hebrew word is adonai but should be translated as master rather than lord. Everywhere there is Adonai or THE LORD in Scripture it should read YaHuWaH or Yah if in the short form. If in doubt, go to the Aramaic or Hebrew, see for yourself, it will read YHWH (Yod-Hay-Waw-Hay) in Aramaic and Hebrew.
Messianic leadership forbids the use of His real name because the Talmud tells them not to use it. In fact in some Messianic Synagogues they are even discouraged from calling Him HaShem which is the traditional substitution for His name except HaShem literally means The Name and that would be too obvious that He really has a name, but don't tell anyone!
Another well kept secret is the changing of the calendar. Rabbinical Judaism, including Messianic Judaism observes a calendar that is a full six months off from the one given to us by YaHuWaH in Scripture. The Scripture is very clear on this matter, so clear that when Messianic leaders are confronted with Scripture on this matter they admit they are in error or quote Talmud about the four Jewish years. Let us now read a passage from the Torah.
"This month is the beginning of months for you, it is the first month of the year for you. (ISR Shemoth 12:2)
Clearly without argument this passage is referring to a month that is to be observed as the first month of the year, it is a commandment, one of the 613 Mitzvot! The above passage is referring to the scriptural month of Aviv which falls during spring time. Aviv literally means ripe or spring, during this month the barley is declared aviv (ripe). In Israel the city of Telaviv literally means spring hills. This month is that of the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, if in doubt I strongly urge you to read all of Shemoth chapter-12.
Talmud keeping Rabbinical Jews renamed the month of Aviv to Nissan and observe it as their seventh calendar month, including Messianic Jews. They had no choice but to rename these two months after changing the calendar in order to obscure what they had done. However, there was one more problem...there is one more passage in Scripture that refers to a month by both name and by number of the month. Something would have to be done about this as well in order to cover up their wickedness. Let us now read from the Scripture.
And all the men of Yisra'el assembled to Sovereign Shelomoh at the festival in the month of Eythanim, which is the seventh month. (ISR I Melakim 8:2)
The month of Ethanim is clearly the seventh month of the Scriptural year. This month comes during the Fall Feasts of Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles, if in doubt strongly urge you to read: Wayyiqra 16:29; 23:24; 23:27; 23:34; 23:39; 23:41; 25:9, Bemidbar 29:1; 29:7; 29:12. The seventh Scriptural month is clearly that of the Fall Feasts.
Again, Rabbi's of the past, changing and making doctrine of their own heart, renamed the month of Ethanim to Tishri. They obviously knew that what they were doing was wrong or they would not have gone to such extremes as to rename these two months. The simple fact is that the only two months that they had changed the names of were the only two months that are mentioned by both name and by the number of the month in Scripture.
Another deceptive practice in relation to the calendar change is renaming days such as Yom Turuah (Day of Shouting) to Rosh Hashanah (New Year). Common sense tells us that the first day of the new year would fall on the first day of the first month of the year, not the first day of the seventh month of the year. This means that Rosh Hashanah is on the first day of Aviv (Nissan) not the first day of Ethanim (Tishri). Too bad the Rabbi doesn't know!
The reason why Messianic Jews observe this perverted calendar is because some Rabbi, probably a Pharisee, thought the earth was created in the fall. I have heard excuses given at Synagogues, including a Messianic Synagogue, that there are four Jewish years, often quoted as Jewish Law. Jewish Law simply is a catch phrase for Talmud or some other man-made doctrine written by a Rabbi long ago. It makes them sound much better if they quote Jewish Law instead of stating that a matter is a man-made tradition of Talmud.
And it speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High, and it intends to change appointed times and law, and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time. (ISR Dani'el 7:25)
Another logistical problem with the flawed idea of changing times and laws involves the Feast of Purim. Although the above passage from the book of Daniel is referring to the Roman Catholic Church, the premise is the same in that someone or something is meddling with YaHuWaH's reckoning of time and His Feasts. The Scripture is clear that the Feast of Purim is on the fourteenth day of Adar, not Adar-Veit. Let's read a passage from Scripture.
Therefore the Yehudim of the villages who dwelt in the unwalled towns were making the fourteenth day of the month of Adar a good day of gladness and feasting, and for sending portions to one another. (ISR Ester 9:19)
First let me say that Purim is not a Sabbath and it is not a day that is commanded for us to keep as a High-Day by any stretch of the imagination. But for the sake of making a point, we see that in the above passage Scripture clearly states that they celebrated or observed the Feast of Purim on the fourteenth day of Adar. There is no mention of these people celebrating or observing the Feast of Purim on the fourteenth day of Adar-Veit anywhere.
But again it is Jewish man-made tradition, that they celebrate or observe the Feast of Purim on Adar-Veit (the thirteenth month) when leap year scheduled for that year. There are two major problems with this man-made doctrine. First, this is not what Scripture says to do. Second, speaking from a Scriptural point of view, nobody really knows if we will even have the month of Adar-Veit (the thirteenth month) any particular year until the month of Adar (the twelfth month) has ended by which point in time Purim would have already passed.
Let me explain...the correct way of declaring a new month is when two or more witnesses have sighted the first sliver of the new moon. At that point in time the Shofar is blown and it is declared Rosh Hodesh which means New Moon and New Month. The Aramaic and Hebrew word hodesh means both moon and month because we are on a lunar calendar.
Let me explain more...The correct way of declaring a new year is checking the barley as the month of Adar is ending. If the barley is aviv (ripe) by the time the new moon has been sighted then the month is declared Aviv and it is Rosh Hashanah. If on the other hand the barley is not yet aviv (ripe) by the time the new moon is sighted then the thirteenth month of Adar-Veit is added to the calendar year making that particular year a leap year.
The calendar that is observed today by Rabbinical Judaism, including Messianic Judaism is not one of Scripture. They observe a calendar much like the calendar of Hillel-II which is a pharisaic school of thought. Their calendar month is off forty percent of the time plus or minus one to two days and they are unable to properly declare a year correctly because of this modified man-made calendar of the Pharisees. All of their months and leap years are pre-planned, they are not properly declared as we are commanded to do in Scripture.
The problem lies with the way Talmud keeping Rabbinical Judaism compounds a problem by meddling with YaHuWaH's reckoning of time. It is a huge chain reaction, or in this case, a huge train wreck with many casualties. Because they are so intent on following after their own hearts, lifting themselves up, and making themselves gods, the Jewish people suffer.
Although it has been said time and time again that their are no such second class citizens in Messianic Judaism, actions often speak louder than words. Many native born Gentiles feel somewhat unwanted or unwelcome in the Messianic community, especially by Messianic leadership. I have personally witnessed and experienced their cold shoulder and lack of love for the native born Gentile. Even unbelieving Jews reach out more than Messianic Leaders.
I do not understand why Messianic leadership feels the need to make native born Gentiles the second class citizens of their synagogues. To be honest I am not really sure if they do this intentionally or if it is purely unintentional. Let me give some examples on this matter.
I used to attend a Messianic synagogue near where I live. As Passover was approaching, the Synagogue started to sell tickets for the Passover meal which was to be catered at a banquet hall. For members of the congregation tickets cost 22.00 each, but for a Jewish guest tickets were free. That same invitation was not extended for the native born Gentile.
Later that same year the sisterhood, which is the woman's group in the congregation, was throwing a Hanukah party. Again, Messianic leadership asked members to only invite Jewish women and women married to a Jewish man only, please do not invite your Gentile friends.
Long before I attended this particular Messianic synagogue the problem existed. Several years back an organization called the World Wide Church of God split apart when their leader passed away. Many of these torah observant Gentiles flocked to this Messianic synagogue in effort to find a spiritual home but were shunned and basically told not to let the door hit your backside on the way out. This would not have happened if it were a Jewish synagogue that had split apart and if it were Jewish people trying to find a spiritual home.
I am simply pointing out the lies and hypocrisy. Messianic leadership can say they have no such second class citizens until they are blue in the face but actions speak louder than words. I can read between the lines and the writing on the wall, they are such big letters.
A prime example of how Messianic Judaism is in some ways worse than non-Messianic Judaism is when it comes to conversion. Out of the seven branches of Judaism six allow conversion, only Messianic Judaism does not allow conversion. Messianic leaders will tell you that conversion is not Scriptural. They could not be more wrong, let us read some Scripture.
And in every province and in every city where the sovereign's command and decree came, the Yehudim had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day, And many of the people were becoming Yehudim, for the fear of the Yehudim had fallen upon them. (ISR Ester 8:17)
We see here that Gentiles were becoming Jews, they were converting to Judaism, they became proselytes. Proselytes are mentioned throughout Scripture, especially the Brit Hadashah. Romans chapter-11 speaks extensively about the gentile being grafted onto the olive tree (Judaism), the Messiah is called the vine dresser pruning the dead branched, and in another case the fig tree, which represents the Gentile, dies when in the presence of the Messiah. We see that as far back as the exodus from Egypt that there was a mixed multitude with the twelve tribes of Israel. The very meaning of the word Hebrew means to cross-over, it is not exclusive to descendants of the twelve tribes. Judaism and being Jewish is a statement of belief or faith, it is not a statement of lineage such as being Israeli.
The solution is so simple, yet rabbinical Talmud observant Messianic Jewish leaders find it so hard to let go of the very pharisaic man-made doctrines that the Messiah set us free from. The reason is they want to be accepted as Jews by their counter-parts by doing what is traditionally known as Jewish. They will do what is perceived as the Jewish thing to do at all costs, even if it goes against Scripture. Is it better to be considered Jewish by men than to be considered righteous by our Father. It is a lost cause to begin with as Traditional Judaism will never accept Messianic Judaism as a legitimate denomination of the Jewish faith, ever!
The simple solution would be to forget all the man-made apostate doctrines they dragged in from the Christian church and to forget about all the man-made legalistic doctrines they dragged in from rabbinical Judaism. Forget about both sides, the left and the right, stay focused and seek YaHuWaH our Elohim in spirit and in truth. Let's read again from Scripture.
And go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it on a scroll, that it is for a latter day, a witness forever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who refuse to hear the Torah of YaHuWaH, who say to the seers, "Do not see," and to the prophets, "Do not prophecy to us what is right, Speak to us what is smooth, prophesy deceits. "Turn aside from the way, swerve from the path, cause the Set-apart One of Yisra'el to cease from before us." Therefore thus said the Set-apart One of Yisra'el, "Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely on them, therefore this crookedness is a breach ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, swiftly." (ISR Yeshayahu 30:8-13)
I need to clarify myself on a matter that may confuse some people. Messianic Judaism is no longer a description of ones belief in the Messiah from a Jewish perspective. Messianic Judaism is now an official denomination with official man-made doctrines. There are two main organizations or bodies of Messianic Judaism. The MJAA (Messianic Jewish Alliance of America) and the UMJC (Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations). When referring to Messianic Judaism, I am referring to the official denomination of Messianic Judaism, not the belief in a Jewish Messiah by the early believers known as Nazarene Judaism (Acts 24:5).
I know that some people will have their socks blown right off their feet, amazed at what I have presented here in this article. Others might be somewhat sick to their stomachs, as the realization sinks in, knowing they have been indoctrinated by lies. But I also know that there are those that hate the truth and will do whatever is traditionally accepted as the Jewish thing to do whether right or wrong. The latter would no doubt bow down and worship Akel Kartza if Talmud instructed them to do so. A simple case of the blind leading the blind.
