YOU CAN BE JEWISH AND BELIEVE IN YESHUA! Is your Rabbi keeping you from Isaiah 53 or Yeshua, Jesus? Do not be misunderstood as to the true identity of Messiah! The New Testament is a Jewish Book! Isaiah 53 Explained
“You cannot love God without loving the Jewish people.” -Corrie ten Boom
Israel’s True God is unfailing love! “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God’s love was revealed among us: God sent His one and only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.” -1 John 4:8-9 God’s Family
It is written: “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.”-Genesis 32:28
Only when the Cross stands alone, unencumbered with other religions, philosophies, or political ideologies, does it retain its power.” –Hitler’s Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer; page 196
It is written: “Then God said [to Abraham], ‘Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael [born of Hagar, the maidservant] I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year.’ -Genesis 17:20-21
“The major difference between a theocracy and a nation based on Christian values boils down to who is the ultimate authority. In a true theocracy, God is the ultimate authority, and the nation’s leaders recognize God as that authority. Everything that is done falls in alignment with God’s word and God’s ways. If there is a dispute, God’s word becomes the ultimate arbiter in deciding it. Theocracies will have rulers and leaders, but they willingly submit themselves to the rule of God.” –biblestudytools
“This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.” –Ephesians 3:6
The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” -1 John 3:8
“Torah and the translation of the word Torah are greatly misunderstood by Christians. … Torah means teaching or instruction, not law. Please make a conscious effort to erase what you have heard about ‘LAW’ in biblical teachings. … The Torah judge does not sit on a bench as an inquisitor, nor as a symbol of governmental powers, he sits on his tribunal as a teacher, as one to whom has been given the privilege of interpreting in human terms God’s will and God’s word. … The Jewish legal system functioned without any coercion [government by force]; it could not exercise any physical or penal sanctions. There were no prisons alongside the academies or the synagogues where the Jewish tribunal would convene. There was neither policemen nor bailiffs prepared to carry out the orders of the court. The judge sat completely disarmed. He had nothing, not any powers- except for reverence of Torah and the conscience of the people. Jewish law addressed itself to developing the character of the people, to refining individuals as human personalities, to replacing the lack of external force with the presence of inner sanctity. The law was obeyed not because there were jails, but because a people inwardly accepted it and its decisions. Consequently, its decisions and decrees were carried out with a fidelity and dispatch that no penal system ever inspired. Further the law was obeyed because the people realized and accepted that it was righteous, humane, considerate, and motivated by love of God and total surrender of vanity and self-interest to the principles of His teaching of the inviolate nature of Tzedek- true teaching of God’s justice.” -Scripture taken from The One New Man Bible, copyright 2011 William J.

From the earliest time in Israel’s history the Israelites felt more comfortable with a human king than with the Almighty; nevertheless, King David, who ruled forty years, understood that the true king of the world was Yehovah (Psalm 93:1). “It is sometimes hard to think of God as king in the present day because we look around and see human rulers who govern with very real and tangible force. Yehovah is a merciful king and when we sin against him he is patient with us. The human kings of the world are not so merciful and their punishments are often swift and cruel.” – A Prayer To Our Father (The Avinu Prayer), Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson
“Ever since its [Israel’s 1948] creation, there have been debates and disagreements about the nature of the state of Israel. Formally, it’s a secular democracy where Judaism is privileged; in reality, many orthodox Jews believe that Israel should be a theocratic state where Judaism is the supreme law of the land. Secular and orthodox Jews are at odds over the future of Israel and it’s uncertain what will happen.” -Learn Religion Only .5% of Jews in Israel are Messianic– those who believe Yeshua, Jesus is Messiah.
There is Spiritual Zionism and there is manmade secular political Zionism. Be discerning! The distinction is clear- one is of God and one is of men. The former is a theocracy with Yeshua as the Head whereas the latter is democracy and has only a deceptive form of the true Biblical teachings. King David was a man after God’s own heart, but the more recent multiple elections via the Knesset for Prime Minister of Israel blatantly expose the inability of mere men and the democratic process to build true Israel.
Jerusalem: The Covenant City “Zionism is a belief in God’s promise of the land (Eretz Israel) to His Chosen People. Christian Zionism is the support of the return of the Jewish people to Zion (Israel) by Christians.” -Dr. Michael Evans, JPT
“On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immoveable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.” -Zechariah 12:3
“A man named Constantine (AD 272–337) is often called a hero of the Christian faith because as the emperor of the Roman Empire, he legally banned the persecution of Christians. But he didn’t stop there. He also legalized a growing division between Jews and Christians that laid the foundation for nearly two millennia of anti-Semitism.” -Messianic Bibles
Jesus: “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” -Luke 6:27. How is it possible for “Western Christianity” to get this simple Bible verse wrong for so long? Answer: Matthew 23:15. The Popes True Revolution (excerpt): ”But what made this document revolutionary was its total renunciation of the use of coercion [government by force] in defense of the truth [Holy Scripture]. It overturned a tradition of sanctioned violence that went back to Constantine and St. Augustine. [Pope] Paul VI made its meaning explicit by going to the United Nations General Assembly to declare, ‘No more war! War never again!’ This was a reversal of Pope Urban II’s 1095 call for the Crusades: “God wills it!’” -TIME, April 11, 2005
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.” -Proverbs 14:34 “You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” -Genesis 4:7
Jews need Yeshua. Christians need Jesus. Muslims need Jesus, pagans and infidels need Jesus. All need Jesus!
“And since our religion is not merely about individuals reaching up to God but rather of a nation bringing God down to Earth, the sanctuary must be made by the whole nation, va’asu.” -Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, The International Jerusalem Post, Feb. 1-7, 2008
Israel plays a vital role in Yeshua’s (Jesus in Hebrew) plan for world redemption from sin and evil! Israel is nothing without King Yeshua, and the United States is nothing without Yeshua (Christ Jesus)! “Israeli leaders don’t advocate the destruction of Muslims, attack mosques or outlaw Muslim organizations or institutions… The Jewish way of life advocates peace and justice. The Jewish religion does not teach dominating others by the sword. Two systems are colliding and demonstrate their most profound principles – one is advocating life and Justice, the other hatred and death.” -Ronny Simon
It is written: “This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” -1 John 4:2-3 “What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?” -2 Corinthians 6:15
A look at secular, secret societies subverting the Gospel in Israel and America. The HAMAS are correct when saying: “The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion… It relies greatly in its infiltration and espionage operations on the secret organizations it gave rise to, such as the Freemasons, The Rotary and Lions clubs, and other sabotage groups. All these organizations, whether secret or open, work in the interest of Zionism and according to its instructions…” –The International Jerusalem Post , January 6-12, 2006, page 17; Key points from the [Islamic] HAMAS 1988 charter. Also read: Masonry Beyond the Light, William Schnoebelen. Notice the double headed eagle on the 1940 Masonic Holy Bible, symbolic of the Holy Roman Empire.
“But that alliance was a poisoned chalice. It meant that from the very beginning the power of Western Christendom was based on hierarchical power in Roman style, with the pope substituting for Caesar, rather than on the covenantal style of biblical and Jewish politics.” ” … Catholicism has never done justice to the biblical and Jewish understanding of covenant…” -Taken from Impossible People by Os Guinness.

Ongoing spiritual warfare in America: “We’re so close to making a major impact to defend your religious liberty, but we’re coming up short. If we don’t have the resources we need to defeat Biden and the radical Left’s devious war against Christians, we could lose everything we fought so hard to protect. We’re taking on new clients, filing lawsuits, submitting legal demands, and fighting like never before to protect your sacred rights.” Messianic Jew, Jay Sekulow, ACLJ
“The Jewish people gave to the world the eternal Book of Books. … This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their state is irrevocable.”
“The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation. If I were an atheist, and believed blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations.” -John Adams
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: I remind you that His name is Yeshua, that His mother’s name is Miriam, that He’s not the Son of Mr. and Mrs. Christ; He was called Christ because Christ is the Greek way of saying “Messiah.” He didn’t come to establish a lovely new “home and garden” religion called Christianity. He came to fulfill what was in Moses and the prophets, and He fulfilled the prophecies that had to be fulfilled before the destruction of the second temple; in fact, He prophesied it would be destroyed, and that our people would be scattered for many, many long years before being regathered. He died because we all fall short. He died, the righteous for the unrighteous, the innocent for the guilty. He died in fulfillment of that toward which the sacrificial system was pointing, life for life. As we turn to Him in “teshuvah,” in repentance and faith, and ask Him to forgive us and wash us clean, He will give us a brand new life. “Taste and see that the Lord is good; truly happy is the man/woman who puts his/her trust in Him.” Dr. Brown
“Jesus was Jewish. His disciples were Jewish. In the prevailing Christian view, the Bible was written by forty authors. Of these, thirty-nine were Jewish. The fortieth, Luke, was likely a convert to Judaism. None of the earliest Christians believed that they were starting a new religion. They merely sought to spread the news that Jewish prophecy had been fulfilled by the arrival of the Jewish Messiah.” –STANDING With ISRAEL, David Brog
Ehud Olmert: “Deep down the international community knows the truth. That no other people can claim Jerusalem but the Jews. That no other people have a right, an historical right, to consider Jerusalem as their Capital, but the Jewish people. And there is one reason why the Palestinians want Jerusalem to be their Capital -it’s not because of its importance to the Palestinian history which never existed in this city, it is not because they have a big crowd in Jerusalem which is important for their Palestinian ethos. It is only because Jerusalem is so important to us that they want Jerusalem. And therefore, if we will make sure that Jerusalem is not for sale, it will not be for sale. -Live excerpt taken from DVD Jerusalem The Covenant City, Presenter, Lance Lambert; Hatikvah Film Foundation
