Understand, then, that those who have faith [in Messiah] are children of Abraham.  Gal 3:7 NIV
Jesus said, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.” (John 8:39)
What were the ‘works of Abraham’?
“Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws” (Gen. 26:5)
Are you a child of Abraham?

When John and I are asked if we ‘keep kosher,’ our response is, “Yes, we keep the scriptural kosher instructions.” By this, we mean that we obey the commands concerning food as given in Torah, but we do not follow the rabbinic (Talmudic) traditions that have become so important to orthodox Jews. Continue reading YHVH’s Instructions About Kashrut (Kosher)
Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg, Dean of the Jewish Studies Faculty at eTeacher (the online biblical Hebrew class that John and I are taking) and Host of the “Jewish Studies for Christians” blog, gave me an interesting insight into Gen 1:26:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Gen 1:26

In May of this year (2015), John and I will be attending the First Ephraimite/Northern Israel National Congress in Israel. The Congress will begin to lay the groundwork for the reunification of Judah and Ephraim – a reunification that is a constant theme of Scripture. To say we are excited about the Congress is a tremendous understatement – it’s basically all we think and talk about! This Congress is a huge step in the fulfillment of prophecy – it is so incredibly important! We are in awe that Abba has permitted us to be a part of it. It will take everything in us to be used of YHVH as He brings this all about. Praise Him!
Etz B’ney Yosef is one of the sponsors of the Congress. Pete Rambo (natsab) found this article on Etz B’ney Yosef’s site and reblogged it. I had to reblog it, too – the passages quoted will knock your socks off! These are all passages that I had been planning on writing about, but this article will do the trick!! Read and be blessed!!

In Y’shua’s day, Torah was the CIVIL law of the nation of Israel, and it efficiently regulated daily life. Had Y’shua ‘done away with’ Torah, He would simultaneously have ‘done away with’ the civil law of Israel, making Israel indistinguishable from the pagan nations around her.
Yet scripture tells us repeatedly that YHVH’s intent was for the Hebrews to act as priests to all the nations, living out before them lives devoted to charity, purity and fellowship with YHVH and each other, with Torah as their guide. That duty and privilege has never been rescinded by Y’shua or YHVH, despite what the modern church might teach. Continue reading Just a Thought …
