Shalom Dear Reader
I would love to have your opinion or correction in the comments below!
Lets go back into time, when we still where connected to churches and our view was mainly based on a perceived interpretation of Messiah’s coming
We were taught that Messiah took our sin on Him to the cross to make us clean and with that abolished the ”Old Testament law”.
It was said that the Holy spirit was with us when we sung songs or started babbling words we did not understand.
We were told that the feast days and rituals from the ”Old Testament” where no longer of use or where just ”old fashion”.
Now awoken to the fact Messiah was the Living Torah(Instructions given to Israel) He brought forgiveness of sins(he did never away with His own word!). If He had not to taken up our sins we would never been able to return to Him according to His own word, because we had sinned against Him and no longer belonged to Him, we lost our identity because of the curse that scattered us among the nations described in ”Deuteronomy: 32:26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:” Yet He had a plan of redemption to take us back to Him even though we where divorced: ”Jer 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.” Because He loved us with a everlasting love and He is merciful He wanted to bring us back to Him, but In order for Him to bring us back Legally He had to die to break the law of sin and being able to renew the marriage with us Israel:
Deut 24:1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. 3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
Messiah came to restore the lost house of Israel
Luke 15: 5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mat 15: 22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
I personally believe the reason Messiah came was in order to prepare the Restoration of the Kingdom of Israel and to give us the Tools to operate like a Kingdom waiting for our King to return and Gather us from all over the Nations were we had been scattered, But the most essential key is to know who You are, this is the key to the Kingdom Restoration.
The Set Apart Spirit
The ”Holy Spirit” in Hebrew ”Setapart” was poured out over men who accepted Messiah in their live to be a testimony and a helper when faced with spiritual entities. Like in the days of old when His spirit guided us: Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? 12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?
David described the Holy spirit in psalm 51: 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Be careful what spirit you let yourself in with, there are many spirits that pretend to be of the Father but are not.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I want to encourage you to acknowledge your Identity! Talk with other believers and non believers about your Identity in Messiah. Ask for a clean heart and take part in spiritual warfare, to cut down all enemy strongholds keeping people captive, Forgive those who hurt you and love those who are lonely, care for the broken and poor. If we start to walk with Messiah and His spirit and not let go we are unstoppable to the Enemy, and we will break through. But if we keep in and sleep we will lose the opportunity.
Shalom and Blessings,
