Chanukkah! Two.

November 29, 2018

The fulfillment Of!

Malachi id the last Prophet of the Tanakh and much of what he has to say is about the decline in the standards required by Elohim in relation to Temple sacrifices! But we are then left with a four hundred year gap until the birth of Messiah to a young virgin in Roman occupied Israel!

But those four hundred years in Jewish history are not left empty, we have the rise of the Maccabees and the Hasmoneans revolting first against the Greeks and then the Romans?

But then the last Temple is finally restored and dedicated by the Festival of lights, looking back for Messianic believers we now understand this was a prophetic interlude to Yeshua words, I Am the light of Ha ‘Olam!

But there is more when Yochanan tells us that, ‘For Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that He gave us His one and only Son Yeshua!

Malachi 4:2,  Matthew/Levi 4:16,   Luke 2:32,   Yochanan 3:15-16,    8:12,    9:5,    Acts 26:18,   Ephesians 5:14.

Making the right Choice?

October 25, 2018

Redemption!

The Complete Tanakh says, ‘That we are all sinners!

That is the fact of humanity, we are born into inherited sin and this  marks out as failures before Elohim for the rest of our lives! This condition is another terminal illness, but humanity has as yet not been able to find a cure for it!

We can be self-achieving, learn to be confident and self-improve or otherwise be foolish or mad in evil and wickedness? But what ever road we should choose in the ideal of humanism it will not solve our condition!

Elohim has given to us His one and only Son Yeshau and by repenting and confessing our failures to Him, he will forgives and set us free by His redemptive work on the tree of cursing and His rising from the grave!

Yesha’ Yahu 1:18,   Zechariah 13:1,   Yochanan 3:3,   4-7,   15-18,    Acts 14:22,    Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   1 Corinthians 6:11,   Hebrews 9:14,   13:12,   Alef Yochanan 1:7, Revelation 7:14.

 

The love of Elohim!

‘Not an excuse for Sin?

Today it is very hard to find believers who follow the teachings of the Complete Tanakh/Holy Bible, who are not adding things on that have nothing to do with Elohim!

Much of this comes from the lack of the ability to read the Tanakh/Bible and many believe that somehow Yeshua has done away with Ha ‘Torah/The Law, when in the Gospels we are told that He did not!

What is prevalent is the excuse to deliberately sin in the hope that God has forgiven and excused our future situation, but alas that is not how it works! The false ideas of ‘Once saved always saved, excuses sin and gives the impression that we can just say sorry sometimes and Elohim will let us off with it?

Accountability and responsibility are two of the most important actions of faith, how we appear to Ha ‘Olam will mark us out as wither we live by what we claim to be or show us to be hypocrites and thus loose our witness?

Exodus 34:6,   Deuteronomy 7:12,   Yochanan 3:3,   3:14-18,   2 Corinthians 9:13, Ephesians 2:4,   Alef  Yochanan 3:17,   Jude 1:21.

Atonement?

September 13, 2018

Sins to be dealt With!

How is this now to be sorted out since their has been no Temple in Jerusalem for the last one-thousand and nine hundred years?

It is ironic that some legal way has been made in Judaism to justify ways around this but, the truth is that with the advent of Yeshua there is no need of either sacrifices of animals or a building!

Since we can call on Him confess and repent of our failures and Elohim will have mercy on us, but repentance is not something that excuses us to return back to sin again and again but rather that we will be changed by Ruach Ha’Kodesh into a new people

Jeremiah 31:34,   1 Corinthians 11:25,   Ephesians 2:13,   Hebrews 9:28.

Another Year!

Over the years of writing this blog post one has not moved on to change the emphasis, this is because for our little nation wither one believes in it or not will be attacked again and again?

Arab nations, the Muslim religion, western liberalism and now anti-Semitism is coming to the fore in places that we thought were done with this, learning from their own historical failures?

But we must recognise that sin, being an inherited condition continues to work in the hearts of each of us! The writer of Ecclesiastes was correct when he said, ‘That there was nothing new under the sun!

What is more important is the knowledge that we have found Yeshua Adonai as the Lord and master of our lives and that we continue to walk with Him, awaiting that great day of His return!

Yochanan 14:28,  1 Thessalonians 1:10,   Hebrews 1:2-3,   10:37,   Yesha ‘Yahu 51:11, Zechariah 1:3,   Malachi 3:18,   Luke 12:36,   Alef Kefa 3:4.

The Temple! Two.

July 20, 2018

Focus on being Born-Again?

Today there is no Temple in Yerushalayim, but right-wing and Orthodox Y’hudim are planning to build a new one before the coming of their false Moshia!

But for all believers the Apostle Paul (Shual) tells us that we are the Temple of Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh and He is precious to us as a guide and helper or comforter! Known in the Greek of the New Testament as Paraclete, the word encompasses many meanings along the lines that we have already covered!

One day when we all make it home to the New Heavenly Yerushalayim, there will no longer be a need for any kind of Temple, since the light of Yeshua will illuminate us and it!

Exodus 25:9-26:30,  1 Kings 6:3-33,   Psalm 61:4,   Acts 7:44,   1 Corinthians 3:16-17,  Hebrews 9:1-11,  13:10,   Revelation 21:3,  22.

The Temple! One.

July 5, 2018

The focus of Y’srael.

In times past the Temple was the focus of the people to bring their sacrifices for their failures to be offered by the priestly order, it was the central place of worship for Ha Y’hudim and the dwelling of Elohim on Earth!

But because of the sin, ignorance and arrogance of the people and the way that the Prophets were mistreated as they tried to warn the Kings that they were going against the will of Elohim to submit, two Temples were destroyed and the nations scattered to the four winds of the Earth via Babylon!

Yeshua told the people two-thousand years ago that their failure to trust in Elohim and to believe in Him was their ruin, because they were trusting in stones and religious duties over that of faith!

Luke 21:6,   1 Kings 9:7-9,   Yesha ‘Yahu 64:10-11,   Jeremiah 26:18,   Lamentations 2:6-8,   Zechariah 14:2,   Matthew/Levi 24:2,   Mark 13:2.

Which Way?

April 27, 2018

Our choice for the right Way!

We all have to make the choice by faith of knowing Yeshua Ha ‘Adon, His love for us and His Mercy?

But many choose to go their own way, the way of evil and destruction! But if we were to change our attitude towards Elohim, we would see the right way and follow on in it!

Psalm 1:6,   32:8,   85:13,   119:32,   Mathew/Levi 7:14,   Yochanan 14:6,   Acts 9:15,  Yehudah 1:11.

Provocation to War!

April 13, 2018

The real Enemy?

Today we stand perhaps on the cliff edge of human history as a western alliance threatens war with Syria and Russia over the spraying of bleach by International terrorists on its own people and placing the blame on Syria?

But it is Iran the friend of the west, and Europe that is a far greater threat to Israel!

Western nations are provoking a war that is based on accusations, allegations and lies but the real truth is being hidden!

The Complete Tanakh warns us not to provoke Elohim, but instead heed the words of His one and only Son Yeshua in relation of not fearing the rumours of wars that must come before the End!

Exodus 23:21,  1 Kings 16:33,  Psalm 27:3,  112:7,   Proverbs 3:25,   Jeremiah 7:19, Matthew/Levi 24:6-7,  Mark 13:7,  Yochanan 14:27,   2 Corinthians 12:20,   Hebrews 10:24, Alef Kefa 4:17. 

Loving? Part-Two.

March 29, 2018

Pesach-Easter!

Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that he gave us His one and only Son, Yeshua!  Yochanan 3:14-16.

This is quite a statement to be found in the New Testament of the Complete Tanakh, but it is only a part of something greater that then leaves us with the challenge of applying this Love of Salvation to others around us?

Ephesians 2:4,  Alef Yocahanan 4;10-11, 19.

The world and Israel is full of trouble, the rise of anti-Semitism, attacks on Jewish communities, and this holiday many Christians will be killed for just going to Church!

We have the responsibility to share our faith and testimony, along with financial support and visiting the sick, poor and caring for widows and orphans?

Yov 22:9,  Psalm 68:5,  Lamentations 5:3,  Ya’akov 1:27.
