Ms. Nero’s Article Continues My Response

There is no place for those things in The Church. In The Church, that's Judaizing and that is sin and has no place in The Church, that is, unless you are not a Believer in Jesus as the Messiah. [sic] The only rituals that should be in The Church are baptism and holy communion.

Holy Communion” is nowhere instituted in the “New Testament.” The “sacrament” of “Holy Communion” is an invention of the Roman cult to keep people in line and subject to the domination of a corrupt clergy. If you disobey the Holy Mother Church (or her representative), you will be “excommunicated” [denied the “sacrament” of “Holy Communion”] and you will burn in hell forever.

What Yeshua actually taught was that whenever Kiddush is observed, it should be observed as a memorial to Him. The “Lord’s Supper” is Kiddush! (Luke 22:14-20)

For a very thorough discussion of baptism, go HERE.

Dear Messianic Jewish Movement members, as Jesus told the young man who wanted to go bury his father before following Him, He is also saying to you …

“…Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead” (Matthew 8:22).

Judaism the religion is dead.[88] The Holy Spirit is not in it – God is not in those synagogues[89] God’s final curtain call in the Jewish Temple was when the veil of the temple “rent in two” (Matthew 27:51), or don’t you believe that? As Judaism is dead, let the dead practitioners of Judaism practice it. Messianic Judaism that believes Jesus Christ is Messiah must bury the tenets of Judaism that they are holding on to and follow the real Jesus – Christianity that is so un-ritualistically simple [sic]. The time is short and there is much work to be done. There are too many souls on their way to hell while you’re limiting your witness to the less that 15 million Jewish people on this earth? Please, as ONE, we’ve got a mighty big job to do before it’s entirely too dark to get the work done.

He wants you to let go of Judaism, forget about who sees you as a Jew or not, and do what He has called you to do in “one” with the TBASUCs.

If you love your Jewishness more than Jesus, you are not worthy of Him.

 

[88] Messianic Judaism is far from dead. It is a prophetic movement that is growing almost as rapidly as it did in the first century. It is, in fact, the restoration of the Biblical form of worhip as practiced by the followers of Messiah in the first century, and it is being revived as a prelude to the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem and the re-establishment of the Levitical Priesthood that will serve in Yeshua’s temple for a thousand years.

[89] Ms. Nero, clearly you have never participated in a Messianic worship service and, quite frankly, you haven’t got a clue as to what you are talking about. You are only spewing ignorance, hatred, and lies, which you clearly have not received from Ruach HaKodesh.

You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44,  NASB)

You have rambled on and on and on, telling us all the things that you think is wrong with Messianic Judaism, and you presume to tell us what HaShem expects us to do. Are you speaking for HaShem? Are you a prophet? Have you heard directly from HaShem the things that you have been telling us that He wants us to do?

But if a prophet presumptuously speaks a word in My name which I didn’t order him to say, … then that prophet must die. (Deuteronomy 18:20, CJB)

Unless you are grafted into the Olive Tree that is Israel and are a citizen of the Commonwealth of Israel by adoption into the family of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Ya'akov, you have no part in the Kingdom of God, and you will die in your sins. It is not too late; you still have time to repent and embrace the true Yeshua of the Bible. Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand!

 

Some Closing Thoughts

The “Jesus” that Ms. Nero portrays simply never existed! He is a “false messiah” created by Gentile revisionist historians to “prove” the superiority of Gentiles over Jews. He bears extremely little, if any, resemblance to Rabbi Yeshua ben Yosef who appears in the pages of the Bible as Adonai Melech haMashiach, the Son of God, Israel’s Messiah and Savior of the World, Who will soon return in glory to reign over the world from his throne in Jerusalem. Maranata!

The “real Jesus” of history and of the Bible (as has already been pointed out) was a totally Torah-observant Jewish rabbi named Yeshua ben Yosef. Nobody who knew Him in the flesh ever called him “Jesus,” for that was simply not His name. He was born, lived, and died as a Torah-observant Jew, worshipping in either the Temple or the synagogue nearly every Shabbat of His life and made aliah to Jerusalem for every single Pilgrim Festival from his thireenth birthday until his final Passover the week of His death. He personally practiced in His daily life exactly those things that Ms. Nero finds so repulsive, and He taught his Talmidim (Disciples) and Shliachim (Apostles) to obey and practice those things as well. Anybody who so thoroughly hates the Judaism that was practiced by Yeshua and His Talmidim and Shliachim, must of necessity hate those who practiced it!

In fact, Ms. Nero’s entire article demonstrates either that she is totally ignorant of Who the Yeshua of the Bible is, or that she hates the Yeshua of the Bible because He was a Torah-observant Jew. If you love only the “Gentile Jesus” that Ms. Nero portrays, then you simply are not seeing the Son of God Who appears on the pages of Scripture and Who lives within the hearts of the true Believers in Mashiach.

I can only wonder if it is mere coincidence that it was another person named Nero who went down in history as one of the most violent persecutors of the followers of Messiah Yeshua. Adolph Hitler, like Ms. Nero, also claimed to be a Christian, and apparently hated Jews almost as much as Ms. Nero does. Some day both will stand before the King of the Jews, and will have to answer for their hatred of “the apple of God’s eye.”

How is it possible for a person who claims to be a “true Christian” to so intensely hate all Jews and all things Jewish, while pretending to love and to follow the King of the Jews?

It is people exactly like Ms. Nero who have made it so profoundly difficult for those Jews whom they persecute to be open to receiving the Gospel. Why would any Jew ever want to hear anything about the “Jesus Christ” whose “followers” like Ms. Nero are directly responsible for the persecution and death of multiplied millions of Jews over the past 1,700 years? The blood of those Jews who have died without Messsiah will be upon the heads of those who through their hatred of the Jews have kept from them the true Gospel of Yeshua!

Yeshua commanded His followers to love even their enemies (Matt 5:44). Therefore, any person who hates or persecutes Jews is not a “Christian” at all. He or she is a pagan, an unbeliever who only calls himself or herself “Christian” and who actually hates and persecutes Yeshua Himself (Matt 25:31-45). “In as much as you have done it to the least of these, My brothers [the Jews], you have done it to Me.”

As for Ms. Nero and those like her who so despise the Jews while claiming to be “teachers of righteousness,” hear what the Shiliach Kefa (the Apostle Peter) says about them:

But there also arose false prophets among the people, as among you also there will be false teachers, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction. Many will follow their destructive ways, and as a result, the way of the truth will be maligned. In covetousness will they exploit you with deceptive words: whose sentence now from of old doesn’t linger, and their destruction will not slumber. … Daring, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries; whereas angels, though greater in might and power, don’t bring a railing judgment against them before the Lord. But these, as creatures without reason, born mere animals to be taken and destroyed, speaking evil in matters about which they are ignorant, will in their destroying surely be destroyed, receiving the wages of unrighteousness; … reveling in their deceit while they feast with you; … children of cursing; forsaking the right way, they went astray, having followed the way of Bil`am the son of Be'or, who loved the wages of wrong-doing; … These are wells without water, clouds driven by a storm; for whom the blackness of darkness has been reserved forever. For, uttering great swelling words of emptiness, they entice in the lusts of the flesh, … they themselves are bondservants of corruption; … But it has happened to them according to the true proverb, “The dog turns to his own vomit again,” and “the sow that had washed to wallowing in the mire.” (2 Peter 2)

Mary Nero, daughter of haSatan and sister of Adolph Hitler, may Adonai Yeshua HaMashiach, Whom you persecute, have mercy on your pagan and hate-filled soul!! May Ruach HaKodesh, Whom you despise, bring you into a saving faith in the Messiah of Israel, Whom you persecute, Adonai HaMelech Yeshua HaMashiach.
