Adonai asks us to enter into His rest on Shabbat, because He cares for us and wants us to be restored, renewed and enjoy His love, His Presence and His Peace. Baruch HaShem!
I saw that Tim Hegg has reviewed the book Wake Up! God's Prophetic Calendar in Timelines and Feasts" as "excellent book". I am so impressed by this book. This is one of the books that is so jewish messianic though written from a protestant point of view and building a bridge to the Messianic community, showing christians how Christ is available in the Biblical Feasts, how impressive their new covenant meaning is, how prophetic the autumn feasts are, how the Law of Christ relates to the Law of Moses, how the Ancient Jewish wedding fits in. It is 550 pages with beautiful details and it reads like a novel. In the Netherlands alone it sold 25.000 copies and really turned a lot of things upside down. It is a very honest book with regards to the Church History and how part of the Church became disconnected to its original roots. A must read and would be great to read a review on Messianic Publications. This book is a bridge builder and now availabe in english on
Do You Want To Be Excited and Thrilled Or Fed and Satisfied? When we come to Galatians Chapter 5 and verse 1, we read further and deeper about our freedom in Christ. This is basically what Paul has been wrestling with in this profound, if not exciting, letter. Some people like to be excited and thrilled when it comes to the Christian Faith - all the time - but there is a need for being serious and profound and biblically sound. Those who like simply to receive the bread can disappear when there is no more bread. We learned some weeks ago in John Chapter 6 that Jesus is the bread. What a day to preaching and teaching on freedom - when so many people look for freedom and peace - but we are reading of that freedom which comes from Jesus Christ - and speaking of that peace which comes only from Jesus Christ. We can experience this - even when sadness seeks to imprison us - or when demons attempt to enslave us - or when men try to limit or restrain us. "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." Jesus does not set us free so that we will become slaves to surrounding situations. Jesus does not set us free for us only to revert back to norm - to weak and miserable principles, and religious rules and regulations. Freedom is one of the hardest things to get - and one of the easiest things to lose! The world is crying out for freedom - I want to be free to do what I like. That is not freedom - that is slavery. Many want freedom of speech - freedom of thought - freedom to express ourselves - freedom from want - freedom from poverty or financial restraints - freedom from ignorance - freedom for political action - and even freedom from GOD! Jesus enjoyed perfect freedom - and yet He says - "the Father who sent Me commanded Me what to say and how to say it" – John Chapter 12 verse 49. What to say and how to say it - "I know what You want Me to say to those people, but Father show Me how You want it said. What is the tone to be? How is it to sound?" That is perfect freedom - when our liberty is under the total control of our gracious and loving God - and the Power of the Holy Spirit. Real freedom - is not to do what I want - but to be set free from "me" - to be set free from SELF - to do what Jesus wants me to do. We can be in chains to self - but Jesus sets us free - releases us - delivers us - to be what God would have us be. In Galatians, Paul is arguing for and pleading for the integrity of the gospel of Jesus Christ - the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Saviour, the Redeemer, the Lord, the King. That reminds us of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Speaking of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ in these present times is becoming increasingly dangerous. It was in the first Century, and it is becoming more so in the twenty first Century. How do you stand with regard to the reality? "Almighty God, our loving heavenly Father, help us to stand firm and strong in these days, when there are pressures and stresses to compromise, and give in here and give in there." Amen. (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be read at Studylight.org and liveasif.org - in the 'Archives' section - every prayerful blessing.)

Our goal is to strengthen the body of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) with solid, biblical resources. Visit our website: http://MessianicPublications.com.

Messianic Publications seeks to strengthen the body of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), both Jewish and non-Jewish alike, with resources that will help strengthen, encourage, and equip believers to live holy (set apart) lives, and bring the Gospel (good news) to the nations. This includes the good news of Yeshua ha'Mashiach's (Jesus Christ's) securing the forgiveness of sins by his death and resurrection, and the good news of the Messianic Kingdom to come. We uphold the lasting importance of the Torah for today (Matt 5:17-19, Rom 3:31), the covenantal inclusion of all believers within the commonwealth of Israel (Deut. 32, Eph. 2:12), and believe there is One Torah for all who believe - both native and non-native alike (Ex 12:49, Num 15:15, Deut 32).

Mission: We seek to publish scripturally and theologically grounded articles and resources from a variety of different Messianic teachers and perspectives.

Legalism

"Let us pause for a second and ask ourselves honestly—do we think that somehow because we are attempting to obey God through a Torah-pursuant lifestyle we are actually earning our salvation? If even a hint of such a thing adheres to our belief, we have diminished the glory of Messiah and disregarded the agony of His atoning death on our behalf."

messianicpublications.com If we are to take seriously the warnings we are given about legalism, we must first of all understand what the term means, and this is a problem. It's a problem first of all because it seems clear that people use the term differently. And secondly, the definition of "legalism" is difficult because t...

Many use the term "Judaizer" today without understanding its first century historical context -- namely, that the Judaizers demanded that Gentiles convert to Judaism via a proselyte ritual that involved circumcision, in order to be saved.

Isaiah 53: God Rests His Case | Messianic Publications

"Several years ago I had the opportunity to attend a Messianic Jewish synagogue. There... I heard Messianic Jewish people tell of ways some of the rabbis would dismiss this passage’s unmistakable meaning. They reportedly would say that Isaiah 53 was about Israel — not the Jewish Messiah."

messianicpublications.com I first became aware of the Isaiah 53 text during junior high and high school, while having the sweet experience of singing excerpts of Handel’s Messiah in choirs.

Paul’s Message About Torah Remains a Mystery To Many | Messianic Publications

Galatians and Romans can be hard to understand. So what should guide our interpretation? Should it be guided by the full weight of prior revelation or by the NT only? Ian Hodge weighs in.

Who Separated Passover from Easter? | The Stream

The quartodeciman controversy is indeed critical to understanding the separation of Passover and Resurrection day (aka First Fruits, Pascua, Easter, etc.). What do you think of Michael L Brown's proposal of bringing the two back together again?

stream.org My radical proposal for reconnecting these severed roots.

[05/16/17]   “The reality is as clear today as it was in the days of Yeshua: the enemy of our souls will do all in his power to render us useless for the kingdom of God, to besmirch the Name of the Holy One by effacing His image in us. Moreover, he hates nothing more than that we should constantly live out the victory that was won for us by Yeshua, and he will therefore apply all of his power to tarnish the trophies of God’s grace we are destined to be. Recognizing both the war in which we are engaged, and the power by which it is won, will secure his defeat.”

It is with great sadness -- but also with great joy -- that we celebrate the passing of Ian Hodge into the presence of God.

Our readers know Ian Hodge as a contributing author at Messianic Publications; he was also a loving husband and father, and a gifted scholar (Ph.D. Whitefield Theological Seminary) who's interests and writings were diverse, spanning the areas of theology, economics, politics, music education, and business management, among others.

Ian was a passionate, public defender of the faith, frequently engaging in both written and street-evangelism; he was also passionate about exploring Yeshua and the Apostles' view of the Torah/Law of God in its first century context.

[12/22/15]   A Theology Cheat Sheet

Dispensational Theology says that the Law/Torah was relevant only to a certain “age of law,” and after Christ’s death, we are now no longer in the age of law, but in the age of grace.

New Covenant Theology holds that since the Bible speaks of God's Law/Torah as a unified whole, after Christ's resurrection the whole Law is done away with, and is replaced with the Law of Christ.

Covenant Theology says that there are divisions in God's Law/Torah between 'moral', 'ceremonial', and 'judicial' categories of law, and that only the 'moral' category (and sometimes the 'judicial') is to be kept in perpetuity.

Messianic Covenant Theology says that God instructs Israel to never add to nor take away from His Law/Torah (Deut. 4:2); that He never intended it to be too difficult to follow (Deut. 30:11; Matt. 11:30); that Israel should be careful to follow "all the words of this Law" (Deut. 31:12, Psalm 119:160); and that they should do so forever (Deut. 29:29, cf. Matt. 5:17-19, Rom. 3:31).

May the Shalom be with you!

"There is nothing in the law of God that will rob you of happiness; it only denies you that which would cost you sorrow."

Heartbreaking news today. One of the victims of yesterday's shooting, Nicholas Thalasinos, was not only a believer in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), but was an outspoken Messianic believer as well. According to a co-worker, Mr. Thalasinos and Syed Farooq (one of the shooters) got into a heated conversation about Islam just two weeks before the attack. Mr. Thalasinos attended Shiloh Messianic Congregation in Calimesa, CA.

Another victim of the attack, Bennetta Betbadal, was born in Iran in 1969 and fled to America when she was 18. According to her family, she left Iran in order to “escape Islamic extremism and the persecution of Christians that followed the Iranian Revolution.” The tragic irony here is that as a believer in Yeshua, she fled Islamic extremism in Iran, only to lose her life to Islamic extremism in "the land of the free." Bennetta is survived by her husband and three young children.

Michael Wetzel, another victim of the attack, was the father of 6 children and also a fellow believer in Yeshua; he attended Church of the Woods in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

Please pray for the spouses, children, and families of all those who lost their lives in yesterday's attack. And please remember, the best way to combat such senseless acts of violence and terrorism is with the Gospel of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) -- the only solution that lays an axe to the roots of this world's idols.
