[---Lamed Messianic Jewish Studies---] Main/Faith


We believe that Elohim, the Creator, made the earth in six days, and rested on the Shabbat. Gen 1-2:3. He created the Sabbath for all mankind.
His Name is hvhy [ Yahu'ah, Ee-Ah-Oo-Ah ].

We believe Man [Adam] was created in perfection, but he erred against the instructions of hvhy Elohim [G-d]. Man died spiritually that day, losing the Divine Presence. Gen 3. Death entered the world through man on that day. hvhy 'covered' Adam, and told him what the result of his 'sin' was.

We believe that soon after Man fell [1100 years], the whole earth was flooded due to man’s having forgotten the creator and following after his own passions, instead of walking with G-d. Gen 6-10 hvhy gave space to repent, and sent a preacher. Noah built an ark of rescue, but only eight people entered it. They did not 'see' the truth of Noah’s warning.

We believe that after the flood, man again became forgetful and self-indulgent. hvhy found one man who heard him, and 'trusted' Him, and so He imparted to him “Tzedaqa”, “righteousness”. Avraham then kept all the Torah of hvhy [Gen 26], after having been 'saved/justified' by faith/trust. “The tzadiq lives by trust”. [Hab 2:4] Avraham is the father of all those who trust in hvhy . [Gen 12-30, Gal. 3:7"...you must know therefore that those who trust, in faith, are the children of Avraham."
--Galatim (Galatians) 3:7 [PV]

We believe that hvhy chose the descendants of Avraham, through Yitz’kḥak, and Ya’aqov, whose name He changed to “Yisra’el”, because of his promise to Avraham, and not because of their merit. He made them a priesthood and a kingdom. They were to show the world the Creator and His Ways. Exodus-Deuteronomy

We believe that Israel failed to keep their part of the “agreement”, [covenant], by not honoring His instructions [Torah], but mixing faith in hvhy with other religions, desecrating His Sabbath, and not upholding the cause of the humble of the earth. The world could not 'see' the truth in them because of their compromise. As a result, they were expelled from the land in three 'waves' of expulsion, just as hvhy had warned: The northern Kingdom in 900 BC, the Southern Kingdom and the remnant of the north that had joined Yehudah in the south, in 586 BC, who returned 70 years later, and the final expulsion of all twelve tribes together in 70 and 135AD. [The Prophets of the Tanakh, history]

We believe that in about 4 BC, a prophet was born in Yisra’el, who would announce the coming of the Tzadiq, the “Righteous One”. His job was to return Yisra’el to the Torah, so they could 'see' the Messiah. Yisra’el, as a nation, had begun to change the seasons of hvhy , to deny the use of His Name, and to rob the people of the commandments by building a “fence” around them, hiding from the common believer the simplicity, purity, and glory of the Torah.

We believe that in that same year, during the season of Sukkot, Messiah Yeshua was born in Bethlehem. He was the “Word of hvhy ”, which had appeared to the prophets as the “Angel of hvhy ” on many occasions, who this time became an infant human being. His Father, Elohim, was still on His throne, but He put His “Davar”, His Word, or “will”, into the womb of a virgin by the power of His Ru'acḥ.

We believe Yeshua HaNetzari, Ben Yoseph, grew up as every other Jewish boy of the 1st century would have. He was circumcised on the eighth day as a Jew in the covenant of Avraham. He observed the feasts of Yisra’el. He observed the Sabbath. He was perfect in His observance of all the Torah [instructions]. He set the example to which we aspire. [ I John 2:6"He who says "I am in Him" ought himself also to walk His halakḥah (way of living, life actions and deeds)."
--Yocḥanan Alef (1st John) 2:6 [PV]

We believe that because of this perfection, Yeshua received authority over even the elements of this world. He healed the sick, raised the dead, walked on water, and preached the Torah. He wept over the unbelief in Yisra’el, but rejoiced in the faith of the humble. He revealed His Father to Yisra’el. He expounded His Torah perfectly.

We believe Yeshua offered Himself in order to renew the Covenant of G-d with Yisra’el. [Jer 31:31-33]. The Torah was not abolished, but the 'agreement' on how to obtain forgiveness changed, this time offering the supplicant complete forgiveness and relief from the guilt incurred by all mankind in the Garden. Yeshua accomplished this by dying on the tree as a blood-atonement for the sins of all mankind. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. [Lev 17:11, Heb 9:22"...because everything, according to the Torah, is purified with the blood; and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness."
--Ivrim (Hebrews) 9:22 [PV]
] He died for the sake of all mankind. No one deserved that love, but He gave it willingly. His Father, the Almighty Elohim, raised Him from the dead, and accepted His offering in the Holy Place in Heaven.

We believe that Yeshua showed Himself as a flesh-and-bone man after the resurrection, first to His Shlikḥim, [apostles, 'sent ones'] and then to all of His Talmidim. His resurrection was witnessed by more than 500 people. Trust in the fact that Yeshua is the Son of G-d [Prov 30:4, Psalm 2:7], and that G-d raised Him from the dead, gains one the forgiveness of sin. ONLY THAT TRUST can wipe away all sin in the one who trusts. If one continues in that trust, he is accepted into the Kingdom of Elohim as a royal priest.

We believe that Yeshua sent the power of Elohim, His Ru'acḥ, to those witnesses, and gave them the necessary ability to reveal the Father to Yisra’el through the Son, Messiah Yeshua. He then revealed His Salvation to the nations, grafting them into the Olive tree of Yisra’el, bringing them into the Covenant of Avraham [ Gal. 3:7, "...you must know therefore that those who trust, in faith, are the children of Avraham."
--Galatim (Galatians) 3:7 [PV]
Eph. 2:17-19"17and He came and preached shalom to you who are far away, and to those who are near. 18Through Him we both are able to draw near, by one Ru'acḥ [Spirit, Breath], to The Father. 19Thus from henceforth you are neither strangers nor foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the q’doshim [Holy Ones], and children of the household of Elohim;"
--Efisim (Ephesians) 2:17-19 [PV]
], and He gave that same power to them, to be witnesses of His Word, His Torah, in all the earth. [Isaiah 2:4] Anyone who trusts in the atonement and resurrection of Yeshua, and asks for this power, can receive it, and live a righteous life according to Torah.

We believe ALL of the congregations of Yeshua observed the Torah and kept the Sabbath, all the way into the fourth century AD. We believe that Messiah Yeshua intends for ALL His people to honor Elohim and show Him to the world in the TRUTH of His Torah, by obeying it, and loving others. There has always been a small remnant who strives to obey G-d and resist Babylon, the religions of men who pervert the Word of Truth.

We believe that when the Congregations of Yeshua the Messiah come to full obedience, which is happening fast, He will hide them in His Pavilion and discipline the earth in “great trouble”. This 'trouble' is for Ya’aqov, finally to bring about the obedience of Yisra’el. They will 'see' Messiah, as He will be revealed to them by two great Prophets, the two “Olive Trees” long predicted.

We believe that this 'great trouble' will come at the same time as the deceit of the “False Messiah”, and that many, including many Jews and 'Christians,' will follow the liar to their destruction; but, at the same time, many new believers in Messiah Yeshua will be made, and oppose this man of destruction all the way to death. He will rule the whole world through tyranny. He will kill many of the true followers of Messiah in the name of “peace”.

We believe that Messiah will return and end the final war that will encircle Yisra’el and nearly destroy her off the earth. Messiah Yeshua will put His foot down on the Mount of Olives in the east of Yerushalayim, and declare His Name, “ hvhy Yeshua HaMashiacḥ”. Every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Yeshua is hvhy Tzeva’ot HaElohim, The Eternal Existent One of the Armies of The Mightiest One. He will judge the wicked, and rule the earth for 1000 years from Yerushalayim.

We believe all the nations will go up for the weekly Sabbaths during the millennium, and for the other feasts of hvhy . [Isa 66, Zecḥ 14] After that, hvhy will make a new heaven and a new earth. We will see things no being has ever seen, nor imagined!

To pay an eternal debt of death (Mavet) resulting from sin (cḥeit) you cannot pay, because we only die once and do not want to die in our sins, we accept the Perfect Righteousness of the Salvation that came forth out of the right arm of The Eternal Existent One our Mightiest One as our Eternal Payment to pay for an Eternal Penalty we cannot pay. If you do not have HaBein (Salvation), then you do not have HaAv (The Eternal Father and His right arm of Salvation; Ref. Yesha-yahu 63 and Hitghaluth [Rev.] 14.) Also, in our refinement as silver, the sin (Cḥeit) -- or separation by transgression -- is the doping added to refine our lives by attaching to those things of self and selfishness in the soul contaminating it, to bring us into Cḥeite (Purity, purify) so we become selfless and full of only love so that the Eternal Existent One can see a reflection of Himself in us. Y'shua came as Hebrew and Jewish -- Yeshuatheinu Malcḥeinu. We are just along for the ride; being witnesses of His goodness and glory (honor) in us.

Interesting how those who have a hope of being delivered have a beginning of seeking for a deliverance. Those who seek, find. Those who see the Law in Mashiacḥ, will live the Law of Life by Mashiacḥ. Those who only see the Law of Sin and Death, will shun the whole of the Law seeking only disobedience they want affirmed by Mashiacḥ. Indeed, if the Mashiacḥ is the whole of all the Law, then those who seek after the whole council of The Eternal Existent One will begin through Salvation the Anointed into the implementation of the Law by the hand and guidance of grace by the Mightiest One to enter into the presence of The Eternal Existent One in the way He deems fit, thereby being a whole man and spirit-filled soul. The old covenant was one of the work of men by their deeds of the Law. This new convent that they find is the one where Mashiacḥ is the Everlasting Payment and not something within the abilities of men.
