The more I study, and the more I talk with my friends, I am reminded of what Yeshua said in Mattthew 19:24, “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
On the one hand my Christian friends believe that Yeshua is their Savior, and the only way to heaven, but they stub their toes on those heavy stone commandments laying in front of them.
On the other hand, the Jewish people that I have talked with stub their toes on the cornerstone, Yeshua, who died for them.
Both are rich with traditions, dogma, and zeal, but neither have the holy balance according to scriptural knowledge.
I know I am not saying anything new. Every Christian who humbles himself to receive the revelation of Torah observance, sees this crooked zeal in the church. And every Jew who receives Yeshua as their Savior sees the same imbalance in Judaisim. It’s just very sad.
The more I study the scripture, it seems that the prophecies are overwhelming that in the end the Jewish people will come to receive Yeshua as Meshiach, but at the same time, there are many prophecies that multitudes of people will fall away from the faith in apostasy. So how do these prophecies reconcile themselves.
It seems to me that while many Jewish people will come to Yeshua, many professing Christians will fall away from Yeshua. And this is happening now all around us. Many Jews are being saved, while many Christians are being deceived. This is such a tragedy! I cannot overstate how tragic this is! Just as we are heartbroken over the millions of Jews who were lost in the Holocaust, are we just as heartbroken over the millions of Christians who will die in the soon coming years?
Both the Jews and the Christians have had 2000 years to embrace all of what Abba is offering us, Yeshua AND Torah. It’s not a “would you like the chicken or the fish” situation!
Paul said that the Jews have PARTIAL BLINDNESS, but they will come to the revelation of Yeshua Mashiach. The Jewish people are in possession of the knowledge that Torah is for today (even though they still have some imbalance as how to keep Torah because of the many traditions of men). The Jewish people are NOT blind in THIS area, BUT the Church IS!
We are praying and interceding for the Jewish people to receive Yeshua as their Savior. This is a holy burden that is given to us by Abba. As you continue to intercede for the salvation of the Jews, I want to encourage and exhort you today to also lift up the Christian Church just as passionately in your intercessions. It is just as difficult for the church to accept Torah as it is for the Jews to accepts Yeshua as Messiah. The Torah is a PROTECTION for us against apostasy towards YESHUA. I believe that the Torah keeping Yeusha believers will be much more difficult (impossible?) to deceive and draw away from Yeshua. I really believe this is an important revelation to pray for the church to receive in these last days. שלום
