Unashamedly Pro-Israel
Irrevocably Zionist
“… out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of ADONAI from Yerushalayim.”
(Isaiah 2:3)
Jew and Gentile (Synagogue and Church), one in Messiah. (Ephesians 2:14)
“For He is our peace, Who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of partition, …”

If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
If you don’t believe Genesis 1:1-11:32, how can you possibly believe John 3:16?
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Please Note: Absolutely nothing on this website should be taken as anti-Church or anti-Rabbinic. I am not anti-anything or anyone. I am only pro-Torah and pro-Truth (see “Philosophy”), but sometimes the Truth upsets our long-held beliefs. I know it certainly upset mine! For example, see “Why Isn’t My Theology Consistent Throughout the Website?”

Did You Know …?

Adobe PDF logoIf you aren’t familiar with Messianic Judaism, you probably don’t know that …

… nobody who knew the Messiah in the flesh ever called Him “Jesus.” [CLICK HERE]

… it is grammatically impossible to say the words “Jesus” or “Jehovah” in either Hebrew or Aramaic, the language of first-century Israel. [CLICK HERE]

… Yeshua (“Jesus”) and His talmidim (disciples) were all Torah-observant Jews who never became “Christians.”

… Rabbi Sha’ul (the Apostle Paul) never “converted” to Christianity, and even returned to Jerusalem from one of his missionary journeys to offer sacrifices in the Temple. [CLICK HERE]

… until well after the end of the first century, almost all the followers of Messiah were Jewish, and “The Way” (Hebrew HaDerek), as the Yeshua-followers sect of Judaism was then called, continued to be predominately Jewish until well into the fourth century CE.

… a Jewish Believer in the Messiah does not become a Christian and stop being a Jew.

… when Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) came at Pentecost, the Jews upon whom He “fell” did not become “Christians.”

… God’s “New Covenant” is for Israel and Judah, and not for “the Church.” [CLICK HERE]

… the Bible never applies the word “Christian” to Yeshua-believing Jews. It was used as a derogatory term to refer to Yeshua-following Gentiles. It is a Greek translation of the Hebrew term “Messianic.”

… the “Church” and “Christianity,” as we know it, did not come into existence until the fourth century.

… the word “church” in the so-called “English New Testament” is a totally false translation of the word used in the Hebrew Bible to refer to the Holy Convocations of Israel. [CLICK HERE]

… in the Messianic Kingdom [usually called “the Kingdom Age” by most Christian theologians], Jews and Gentiles will worship Yeshua and offer sacrifices together in the Jerusalem Temple. [CLICK HERE]

… there is a form of true Biblical faith today in which Jews and Gentiles can worship side-by-side as one in Yeshua the Messiah.

This form of Biblical Faith is called Messianic Judaism, and it is practiced today essentially as it was practiced by Yeshua and his first Talimidim. Of course, some things will have to wait until Messiah restores the Temple.
