Zippin' up my boots, going back to my roots, yeah!

08 July 2013, 12:50

The term ‘Gentiles’ refers to what is known in Hebrew as ‘Goyim’ and simply means ‘other nations.’ It is not a derogatory term.

The Bible is a Hebrew/Jewish Book, but for everybody. Likewise Messiah is also Hebrew/ Jewish but also for everybody. Regular readers of my articles may wonder why I always point this out. Maybe if I say it the 24th time, you will be motivated enough to investigate the 1700 year old lie further for yourself?

In a world that is race obsessed, with South Africa right up there with the best of them, perhaps good to point out that the word does not carry any racial connotations. It simply refers to, from a Biblical perspective, to the non-Hebrew nations. We understand from the Hebrew Scriptures that one’s destination in the after-life is determined on the basis of what you believe. So if you don’t believe in the after-life, you can stop right here. That’s right. Don’t read one sentence further. I will start a new paragraph to give you a sense of closure eventhough you did not finish the entire article.

Okay then, if you’re reading here then I take it that you believe in the after-life. The Hebrew Scriptures teach that there are two destinations. The one is a place of peace and joy (heaven) and the other a place of darkness and torment (hell)

Avraham was chosen to start a nation or people that will fulfil the role of kohahim or priests. His people were chosen to be the initial recipients of God’s kingdom on earth. We see that with this great privilege came incredible responsibility. The Hebrew Scriptures record the many incidents of obedience and disobedience of the children of Israel. Be that as it may, by the grace of God we have the physical descendents of fathers of the walk of faith recognised as a nation today, something which was not the case for nearly 2000 years.

Some Gentiles decided at some point in history that God is no longer interested in the Jewish people. Replacement theology teaches that the Christian church has somehow replaced Israel. The word ‘church’ for many has come to mean ‘building’ or a ‘particular non-profit organisation.’  Messiah was born from the House of ‘Jew-dah’ and His arrival was, as pointed out several times before, a continuation and progression of the walk of faith that started with Avraham.

Pentecost is regarded as the launch of the Christian church. But do they conveniently forget or are they simply ignorant of the fact that the outpouring of the Ruach HaKodesh occurred perfectly on the Feast of Shavuot? Pentecost is only a translation of Shavuot, actually no translation was necessary. Messiah also died on Pesach, was the Unleavened bread (Matzah) and became the Sfirat HaOmer (Firstfruit of the harvest).  Is it not time that we wake up and realize that YHVH set up one timeline? The Messiah Who came, was a fulfilment of the Hebrew/Jewish Scriptures.

 So where do these lies come from? It comes from Gentiles, most notably the Roman Catholic (universal) church in the beginning who hijacked the simple, spontaneous and joyful following of Messiah.

And so they set out to remove the Jewishness of Messiah to assume power and control of this movement (which they did) and to replace the Hebrew foundation with paganism. Assimilation (syncretism) therefore became the most effective form of persecution and continues to this day.

So it is a blatant lie to say that all the Jews rejected Messiah. His closest group of talmidim were Jews. Yes, the Jewish religious establishment rejected Him, but that does not justify the Roman Catholic’s introduction of pagan ways, structures and concepts. Paganism will not take us closer to the Divine Presence. It is by understanding the Hebrew roots of our faith that things begin to fall into place. The traditions introduced by these Gentiles three hundred years after Messiah will never lead us to Zion.

It is then no wonder that despite us being so modern we seldom see the miracles, signs and wonders that characterised the times of Yeshua and His early followers. We must turn in the following ways, by making ‘tefillah, teshuvah and tzedakah.’ Now look up what each of those means. Here’s a snack for while you do that… (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qW9-s3ITbU)
