The Real Issue
Messianic Judaism is a spiritual renaissance, a revival, a return to the faith of the Messianic Jews in the first-century, unencumbered by the traditions of men. It is a return to a pure and simple faith based upon having a living, vibrant and personal relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through the Messiah Yeshua.
The real issue we must recognize is not whether it is Jewish to believe in Yeshua, because the Jewishness of Yeshua is unquestionable historically.
THE REAL ISSUE at stake here is whether Yeshua is truly the Messiah or not.
• If He is, then it is the most Jewish thing in the world to believe in Him.
• If He is not the Messiah, then we should not follow Him.
There is only one way to find out, and that is to go back into the Hebrew Scriptures ourselves and study the Messianic prophecies, According to the Hebrew Scriptures, the Messiah was to come twice; the first time to suffer and die and the second time to usher in the Messianic era of peace upon the earth.
Why did Messiah have to die?
The prophet Isaiah answered this question when he said ‘All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way. And the Lord has laid upon Him (the Messiah) the sin of us all!
Without God there is no hope for mankind. It is obvious that man is separated from God when we view the ever-worsening situation in the world today. That is why He sent Yeshua, the Messiah, who came to deliver us from our sins and to bring us into a new life in Him.
For tens of thousands of us today, we know that we have found the Messiah who said, “Do not think that I came to abolish the law or the prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17
We would like to encourage you to read and study the Hebrew Scriptures for yourself and find out if Yeshua is truly the One of whom the prophets spoke. Before you research the Scriptures, pray and ask the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to guide you and show you His truth.
