It Is Not Too Hard!

 

Shabbat Shalom Achim (brothers and sisters in Hebrew)

Today’s this week’s reading is called Parashah Nitzavim from Deuteronomy 29:9 (10) to 30:20.

Obeying the Torah is not too hard.  Despite what many people say, the Torah really is not that hard!   The confusion from both Judaism and Christianity causes people to think that following the Torah is very difficult and as a result prevents people from really walking in the narrow path that YHWH set for his People Israel.

Let the Scriptures speak for itself, Yeshua is Torah, by accepting Yeshua, we also accept the Torah which are the commandments, laws, and right-rulings from YHWH.  Yeshua is the Torah come to life.  By choosing Yeshua we choose life.  We live by doing the Torah.

When you accept Yeshua and not do Torah, you are in fact rejecting Yeshua.
When you do the Torah and do not accept Yeshua, you are actually rejecting Torah.

So choose wisely, choose life—the Torah is not that hard!

YHWH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection,
YHWH will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will beautify you,
YHWH will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete (Numbers 6:24-26)

Have a blessed Shabbat.

Shalom,

Who Are You?

 

Shabbat Shalom Achim (brothers and sisters in Hebrew)

Today’s this week’s reading is called Parashah Ki Tavo from Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8.

The question “Who Are You?” is intended for those who believe in Yeshua (and for the Christians who believe in Jesus).  The whole Scripture from Genesis to Revelation is about the Covenant between YHWH and His People Israel.  It is basically a Love Story about what happened between YHWH and Israel.  Praises must go to YHWH for making it possible for Israel to be His People again.

Many people especially Christians or Messianics have failed to mature and realize that there are more important things that we should be doing for YHWH.  Before they can do that, they need to realize who they really are—Israelites.

As an Israelite, we do what is right in the eyes of YHWH and walk in His Ways, Keep His Laws, Keep His Commandments, Keep His Right-Rulings and Listen/Obey to His Voice.   Let us return to the Torah and knowing who we are and start learning what we are supposed to do as a Wife for YHWH.

YHWH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection,
YHWH will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will beautify you,
YHWH will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete (Numbers 6:24-26)

Have a blessed Shabbat!

Shalom,

Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage

Shabbat Shalom Achim (brothers and sisters in Hebrew)

Today’s this week’s reading is called Parashah Ki Teitzei from Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19.

Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage is misunderstood by those who say they believe in YHWH/Yeshua as well as those in Messianic and in Christianity and as a result there are a lot of people disobeying YHWH when people get divorced and remarry. The fact is they are doing it out of selfish hearts and do not honor YHWH.

The picture of Marriage between YHWH and House of Israel gives us a better understanding of the reason why Yeshua came here as a human being. This is an awesome lesson for those who desire to grow deeper in YHWH and Yeshua. This lesson also shows that Torah is still part of our lives because it glories YHWH who keeps the Torah he gave us as part of His Covenant with the House of Israel.

YHWH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection,
YHWH will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will beautify you,
YHWH will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete (Numbers 6:24-26)

Have a blessed Shabbat

Shalom,

Dirk
