Moshiac at the Door
Continued from the Home page...
A talmid of the ancient Tzadik Hillel, Rabbi Yochanan B. Zakki took it upon himself, to create a virtually new, but unanointed, nor Divinely sanctioned religion. The changes at Yavneh virtually obliterated for a large part of Klal Yisroel, the proper interpretation of Messianic prophecy.
This new religion, as one illuminated Rabbi states, was far from a smooth continuum from Torah-True Judaism as given by Moses, our Teacher. The sacrificial system which encompassed a multitude of the Mitzvot, was abrogated, and prayer and other non Levitical sanctioned works were substituted instead.
Ironically, this is in direct contradiction to what is regarded universally by Rabbinic Judaism as the ninth principal of the faith. Of the”13 articles of the creed”, the ninth implies that this Law of Moses will not be abrogated and that no other law will come from G-D. Nothing is to be added to or taken away from it, neither in the written nor oral law, as it is said:”Thou shalt not add to it, nor diminish from it,” Duet 13:1.
The Yigdal formulation, chanted in synagogues on the Sabbath is, “this law G-d will not alter, will not change for any other through times utmost range.”
G-d has either left us without a Kippura, after the destruction of the Temple, which He would never do, or provided us with a new one. The latter is true since it is an absolute in Ha Davar, Vayikra 17:11 , “For the nefesh of the basar is in the dahm:and I have given it to you upon the Mizge’ach to make kapporah for your nefashot: for it is the dahm that maketh kapporah for the nefesh”.
Ha Shem promised a Brit ChaDasha in Yirmeyah 31:31-34 “Hinei, the days come saith Ha Shem, that I will cut a Brit Chadasha with Bais Yisroel, and with Bais heir yad tYehuda; Not according to the Brit that I cut with their Avot in the day that I took hold of to take them out of Efetz Mitzrayim; which My Brit they broke, although I was Ba;al (husband) to them, saith Hashem; But this shall be the Brit that I will cut with Bais Yisroel, after those days, saith Hashem, I will set My Torah in them inwardly, and I will write Ketuvim on their hearts; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.
With Omniscient foresight, G-d pre-wrote history. Only the One who can orchestrate history, can write it before it happens. The Tenach does this with surgical precision, even telling of the rejection the Messiah would receive, when He came to earth to cut the Brit Chadasha: in Yeshaya 53:3. “He is despised and chadal ishim(rejected by men): a man of sorrows, and acquainted with suffering, and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”
Messiah for Israel believes that G-D has given Ha Davar, the Holy scriptures, for the consumption of every Jewish person: this is evidenced in Yeshoshua 1:8 “This Sefer Ha Torah shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate on it yomam valailah, so that thou mayest be shomer to do according to all the is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy derech prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
There is no greater need for the Jewish people of today than to have Shalom with Ha Shem: and this can only be done through His appointed Way. This Way can be known. In Besuras Hageulah according to Yochanan (the Apostle John) we read:” Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach says to him, I am HaDerech, HaEmes, and HaChayyim. No one comes to HaAv except through me.” We can know where the Anointed One was to be born, Michol 5:1(2). We can know when He would be here in His first coming; Daniel 9:24-25., how He would be cut off, suffering a judicial violent death,; Yeshaya 53, and that He was prophesied to come twice: the first time to function as a Kohain Hagadol, Tehillim 110, the second time on the clouds of heaven, as Melech and Judge, Daniel 7:13. Come with us to the Heart of G-d, and see for yourself what the Jewish parashas say about the Messiah for Israel.
