A ‘P.S.’ to ‘Just in case’ . . .

By the way, for the record, the same ‘unequally yoked’ principle would hold true if the ‘teachers’ were a ‘Believing’ Jewish Teacher and a ‘Non-Believing’ Jewish Teacher, or Belieivng pastor and a non-believing pastor ( yeah, I know ) or a ‘believing baptist and a non-believing muslim or any other combo that you can think of that mixes two kingdoms together that have different ‘natures’ . . .j ust in case you thought we were pickin’ on anybody in particular . . .

Just in case . . .

Just in case someone might have misunderstood, I want to clarify a point. Sometime back we posted a ‘question’ about an article that came across our desk concerning a ‘radical new idea’ proposing a “one new man worship group” being led by a believing pastor and a non-believing jewish teacher . . . ( ‘believing’ and ‘non-believing’ being defined in the context of acceptance of Jesus – Yeshua – of Nazareth as the promised Messiah of Israel that came in the flesh and will come again )

Let’s make it simple. Do we think it will work ?  No .So why not ? Which one don’t we like – pastors or Jews ?  We like both. So what’s the problem ? It’s a violation of the Apostle Paul’s teaching in 2 Corinthians 6:14            ( mixing light and darkness ) WHICH is based in the Torah principles about mixing things together that are of differing natures. ( For in Christ, I am a new creation, 1 Cor 5:17 . . . my nature is changed ) Leviticus 19:19 and Deut 22:9-11 teaching us this principle in the day-to-day things, such as mixing seed in the same field or plowing with an ox and donkey, or mixing fabrics from differing ‘kingdoms; . Exodus 34:16 and Deut 7:2-3 take the principles to a deeper level.

Yeshua said that the disciples ( and us ) are in the world but not of the world. Isaiah tells us that Israel ( that includes you and me ) are to be a ‘light to the nations’.

God showed Peter that we should not call any man common or unclean Acts 10 ), since Yeshua died for ALL that would come to Him. BUT – if they will not accept Him, they will find themselves ‘outside the city’ in the end. To ‘yoke’ myself together in the teaching of the Gospel of GOD and the whole counsel of the Word with a person who openly denies the personhood and office of Yeshua – the ONE  who brings me life and light, is to violate the very foundation on which I am to stand that enables me to be the LIGHT and SALT He has called me to be.

Please understand that this stance is NOT being anti-semitic, or ant-Israel or anti- jewish, for Paul reminds us that ‘not all Israel is Israel’ ( Rom. 9:6-ff , and if I am in Messiah, then I am Abraham’s seed – a hebrew – Galatians 3:29 ) . . . This truth has been from the beginning and cannot be changed just because it offends my sensibilities or seems ‘not nice’. I didn’t write it, GOD did . . .And Yes, I love my brother Judah  . . . and my brother ‘bubba’ . . .

Shabbat Shalom – J

Things that make you go ‘hmmm . . .’

Just an interesting fact . . . the scheduled Torah portion for the week of Obama’s first inauguration just happened to be Exodus chapter 1 which includes the passage,
”  . . . and there arose a new Pharaoh in Egypt that did not know or consider Joseph . . .”
How coincidental is it that the title for the Torah portion ( Exodus 10 ) for the week of Obama’s second inauguration is, in the hebrew, simply “GO” . . .
And God’s people were in Egypt and their goal was the ‘promised land’ . . .
And this time there will NOT be 40 years of wandering . . . but we will be taken into the
wilderness of the nations by Abba before we ‘go’ home. . .Eze 20 & Hosea 2 . . .
And HIS people will be leaving this country, as well as coming out of all the others . . . but not in the way we think . . .
” . . . not by power, not by might, but by my Spirit, says YHVH . . .”

Hmmm . . .
