Deception, Thy Name Is Tommy Waller

“I am not a Jew with trembling knees”.- Menachem Begin

Posted by Donny Fuchs at 11:44 AM

In Tomer Devora’s recent blog post, “There’s Nothing New Under the Sun”, the author explains how Tommy Waller’s latest public apology tour is merely another evangelical tactic straight out of “The Book of Spiritual Warfare According to Paul”. Without belaboring the point, it cuts through the veneer of Waller’s apology by explaining his clever use of verbal gymnastics to delude those who already see Waller as a kosher Santa Claus. Those who are ignorant of evangelical doctrine and tactics are vulnerable to the two-faced Waller. And too many naive Jew are impressed by the crocodile tears of evangelicals.

Waller is as deadly as any crocodile. But he is also crafty. Like all successful evangelicals, Waller mastered the doctrine of wearing a hundred different masks to fool a hundred people. One mask for prostitutes. Another one for robbers. One for the poor. Another for the greedy. And an assortment of masks to trick Jews with kipot. There are even masks to fool Rabbis, Hashem help us! The perverse spectacle of Waller’s apology tour, is a direct result of the effect some of us are having on exposing this issue. Simply put, Waller and his Jewish enablers are terrified of recent revelations (see video below) which expose Hayovel’s true agenda.

On the one hand there are the shrill Jews who libel and slander us and accuse us of the same. The ones who refuse to respond to evidence, and have the nerve to accuse of us wrong-doing. They are biting back like wounded predators, with their incessant false allegations of “ruining good names and denigrating Torah scholars”. All of it is untrue.

On the other hand, you have the evangelicals themselves, taking the soft “Brother Esau” approach. Taking the punches in stride, to show humility and understanding. For the intellectually inclined, the facts speak for themselves. But Hayovel’s Jewish supporters are not intellectually honest. And they are emotionally invested in friendships with these people. If they were intellectual about this issue, this would be a non-issue. Our claim is stronger. We have the data to back up our position.

Shame on any Jew whose emotional spine is so bent over, that he actually falls for Waller’s cleverly orchestrated apologetics. Considering the evidence, it is astounding that ANY Jew would have anything to do with these Hayovel swine. Consider the following video from February 2017, when Tommy Waller let down his hair among his “believing” friends. Naturally, Tommy Waller is having to respond to these videos so he is working over-time to give it “context”. On his own Facebook page, they keep removing these videos each time they are posted in the comments section. Why is that? Because these videos expose Waller as a charlatan who will never renege on his evangelical mandate, but will readily change tactics to achieve his results.

Two final points: If certain Jewish “leaders” don’t want us posting pictures of them taking photos with missionaries, they should heed my advice:

Don’t take pictures with missionaries!

And if they were naive and unaware in the past, then they have an obligation to:

1. publicly declare it to be so
2. be humble and educate themselves
3. disengage from any and all similar associations in the future.
But if you take a public photo-op with missionary Mike Isley and you are in the public eye, then you can expect that we will share it with the Jewish masses, because YOUR irresponsible behavior endangers Jews. A Jew who cares for his fellow Jews has no other choice. (For more on Mike Isley: http://jewishisrael.ning.com/page/jewish-sermon-on-the-mount)

To our frightened Jewish and non-Jewish detractors: Your impotent threats and petulance don’t matter to those of us who are committed to this spiritual battle. We will not be cowed by bullying tactics. Our only concern is that the Torah truth prevails. It is NEVER personal or premised on hatred of Jews or decent gentiles. It is always about the halacha, and the inherent dangers of such toxic relationships.

There is One True Judge. One day, all of those tragic Jews who joined hands with Hayovel will have to answer to Hakadosh Baruch Hu for their outrageous actions. The day of Teshuva is upon us. May Hashem forgive those who engage in authentic repentance, and plant wisdom in the minds of those who are in dire need of it. And may The Almighty strike down the destroyers of Judaism, whether they wield the sword, or wield a hoe with the false smile of a distant brother with ill intentions.

“There’s Nothing New Under the Sun”

Hayovel

Tishrei 5778

I regret that the subject of the first post of the new year will be Tommy Waller, but evil doesn’t take holidays. In fact, it seems to ramp up around the holidays. Even now, Xians are pouring into Israel for “The Feast”, as they do every year at this time, and all of them are looking for a weak place through the Jewish armor to reach the Jewish soul and steal it for Yeshu.

A few people have asked my opinion about the new video of Tommy Waller calling on his fellow Xians to renounce “replacement theology.” Sadly, I must tell you that absolutely nothing has changed here.

Since the beginning of their ministry, the Wallers have said that they do not want Jews to become “Xians,” i.e., give up Jewish practice and ritual, but they do want them to be “messianic” Jews, i.e. believers in Yeshu (without giving up Jewish ritual).

Giving up replacement theology simply means agreeing that Jews, as Jews who believe in Yeshu and go to “synagogue” instead of church, ALSO have a place alongside the rest of Christendom. This is just a last, sad and bad attempt on the part of Xians to reel in the Jewish fish by trying to convince them that they can live on the land and yet remain fish.

In the past, a Jew who believed Yeshu was the messiah had to convert to another religion, leave the synagogue forever and go to church. As a demonstration of his sincerity, he was required to eat a ham sandwich. Why? Because, according to the Xians of those times, God was through with the Jews and had a new people known as the church. If a Jew wanted to be counted as part of God’s people he had to give up on being a Jew and become a Xian.

What Tommy Waller and his fellow “Israel-loving” Xians claim to have suddenly discovered is that a Jew can remain a Jew and still come to faith in their Yeshu, who is also reclaiming his Jewishness in these latter days. They still believe that only those who put their faith and hope in Yeshu will be redeemed, but it includes both those who identify as Jewish as well as those who identify as Xian. The two are “one new man” with their shared belief in Yeshu and together they are equal heirs of the promises made to the forefathers: Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’aqov.

Tommy’s little speech is absolutely nothing new. It’s the same thing Jews for Jesus has been saying for the past fifty years.

See herehere and here.

This is my message to Tommy Waller:

This is just another misguided attempt to convince Jews to take another look at Yeshu, to present him and his message in a more acceptable light. Your problem is – you are still wrong. Yeshu was NOT a good Jew. He was NOT G-d. He was a man who sinned and died for his own sins. He saved no one, not then, not now and not ever. He never was and never will be the Messiah.

There is some perverseness in the hearts of Xians who can come so close to the truth and yet fail to recognize it and embrace it. Your judgment and consequently, your punishment, will be especially severe. I urge you to consider the possibility that you could be mistaken. That is your first step towards real salvation.

25 New ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ Revealed

 25 New 'Dead Sea Scrolls' Revealed

This scroll fragment preserves parts of the Book of Leviticus, in which God promises to reward the people of Israel if they observe the Sabbath and obey the 10 commandments.

More than 25 previously unpublished “Dead Sea Scroll” fragments, dating back 2,000 years and holding text from the Hebrew Bible, have been brought to light, their contents detailed in two new books.

The various scroll fragments record parts of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Samuel, Ruth, Kings, Micah, Nehemiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Joshua, Judges, Proverbs, Numbers, Psalms, Ezekiel and Jonah. The Qumran caves ― where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered ― had yet to yield any fragments from the Book of Nehemiah; if this newly revealed fragment is authenticated it would be the first.

Scholars have expressed concerns that some of the fragments are forgeries. [See Photos of the Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments]

These 25 newly published fragments are just the tip of the iceberg. A scholar told Live Science that around 70 newly discovered fragments have appeared on the antiquities market since 2002. Additionally, the cabinet minister in charge of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), along with a number of scholars, believes that there are undiscovered scrolls that are being found by looters in caves in the Judean Desert. The IAA is sponsoring a new series of scientific surveys and excavations to find these scrolls before looters do.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in a series of 11 caves by the archaeological site of Qumran in the Judean Desert, near the Dead Sea. During that time, archaeologists and local Bedouins unearthed thousands of fragments from nearly 900 manuscripts.

Some of the Bedouin sold their scrolls in Bethlehem through an antiquities dealer named Khalil Iskander Shahin, who went by the name “Kando.” Shahin died in 1993 and his son William Kando now runs his business and estate.

Many scholars believe that the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden in the Qumran caves around A.D. 70, during a Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire. They may have been written by a Jewish sect known as the Essenes.

Qumran and its caves are located in the West Bank, a territory captured by Israel from Jordan during the Six-Day War in 1967. Jordan at times has asserted that the Dead Sea Scrolls belong to them.

Although the term Dead Sea Scrolls usually refers to the scrolls found at Qumran, there have been scrolls found in caves at other sites in the Judean Desert that are considered Dead Sea Scrolls.

The 25 newly published scroll fragments were purchased by two separate collectors. [Gallery of Dead Sea Scrolls: A Glimpse of the Past]

Between 2009 and 2014, Steve Green, the owner of Hobby Lobby, a chain of arts and crafts stores, purchased 13 of the fragments, which he has donated, along with thousands of other artifacts, to the Museum of the Bible. Green is helping to fund construction of the museum, scheduled to open in Washington, D.C., next fall. (A fly-through of the museum can be seen on YouTube).

A team of scholars has published details of these donated fragments in the book volume “Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments in the Museum Collection” (Brill, 2016).

The provenance of this batch of scrolls is not certain.

“Some of these fragments must have come from Qumran, probably Cave 4, while the others may have derived from other sites in the Judean Desert,” wrote Emanuel Tov, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in the book volume. “Unfortunately, little is known about the provenance of these fragments because most sellers did not provide such information at the time of the sale.”

Antiquities dealer William Kando told Live Science that he doesn’t know where the donated fragments originated.

Scientists are conducting tests on the donated fragments to help determine if any are forgeries, said Michael Holmes, executive director of the Museum of the Bible Scholars Initiative, in a statement sent to Live Science.

The results will be combined with an analysis of the writing to help determine what the chances are of the different fragments being forgeries.

“The results will be incorporated in our future museum exhibits, inviting visitors to grasp and engage with issues involved with assessing authenticity,” Holmes said.

Martin Schøyen, a collector from Norway, owns the other batch of the recently revealed Dead Sea Scrolls. The texts from those fragments are detailed in the book “Gleanings from the Caves: Dead Sea Scrolls and Artefacts from The Schøyen Collection” (Bloomsbury, 2016). Also detailed in the book are other artifacts related to the scrolls, including a linen wrapper in which one of the Dead Sea Scrolls was found. [Photos: Who ‘Penned’ the Dead Sea Scrolls?]

Schøyen, who has a vast collection of antiquities, began collecting biblical manuscripts in 1986. “The ultimate challenge had become to acquire a fragment of the Dead Sea Scrolls with a biblical text,” Schøyen wrote in the book. “It was for me a ‘Mission: Impossible.'”

His determination paid off as, gradually, he was able to track down scroll fragments that were for sale by a number of sources. He bought several from a family collection that is now in in Zurich (the name was not published) and several more from the descendants of tourists or collectors who had purchased scrolls from Shahin’s shop in Bethlehem in the 1950s. He also purchased a few fragments that were once owned by two scholars who had worked in the Qumran caves as students in 1948 (the students got the fragments as gifts from a bishop who supported the work).

“The quest that started as a ‘Mission: Impossible’ in 1986, gradually proceeded to become a collection of [about] 115 fragments from around 27 different scrolls,”  Schøyen said. He added that some of the fragments in his collection come from caves 1, 4 and 11 at Qumran, while some come from other caves in the Judean Desert.

A highlight from the newly published Museum of the Bible collection is a fragment from the Book of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 2:13-16).

The fragment tells of a man named Nehemiah who lived during the fifth century B.C., at a time after Jerusalem had been destroyed by theBabylonians in 586 B.C. The Persian Empire had taken over Babylon’s territory and the Jews, who had been forced to leave Israel by the Babylonians, were allowed to return home.

The fragment records Nehemiah’s visit to a ruined Jerusalem, finding that its gates had been “consumed by fire.” According to the fragment text, he inspects the remains of the walls before starting work on rebuilding them.

Scholars have noted in previous studies that archaeologists hadn’t found any copies of the Book of Nehemiah in the Qumran caves. How this fragment came to America is unknown, and scholars say they can’t be sure it’s from Qumran.

“It is assumed to come from Cave 4 [at Qumran], but in the final analysis it must be said that the provenance of the fragment remains unknown,” wrote Martin G. Abegg Jr., a professor at Trinity Western University who led the team that analyzed the fragment, in the book “Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments in the Museum Collection.”

A highlight from the Schøyen Collection is a fragment containing part of the Book of Leviticus. In the fragment text, God promises that if the Sabbath is observed and the Ten Commandments are obeyed, the people of Israel will be rewarded.

“If you walk according to my laws, and keep my commandments and implement them, then I will grant your rains in their season, so that the earth shall yield its produce and the trees of the field their fruit,” part of the fragment reads (translation by Torleif Elgvin).

“I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down untroubled by anyone; and I will exterminate vicious beasts from the land, and no sword shall cross your land,” the fragment continues. “I will look with favour upon you, and make you fertile and multiply you.”

Schøyen published a note from William Kando saying that the Leviticus scroll fragment was once owned by his father who got it from Bedouin in 1952 or 1953 and it was sold, along with other fragments, to a customer in Zurich in 1956.

Anti-Semitic Sculpture Outside Luther’s Church Creates Controversy

The highly anticipated 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation is coming up in 2017 and the epicenter of the Reformation, Wittenberg, Germany, has been preparing for years. Visitors from around the world are already trickling in to visit historical sites such as the Castle Church where Martin Luther is purported to have posted his 95 Theses condemning the Catholic Church’s sale of indulgences.

However, St. Mary’s, or the Town Church, in Wittenberg, where Luther regularly preached, married his wife Katharina von Bora, and baptized their six children, is currently drawing greater attention because of a challenge to remove a 700-year-old anti-Semitic sculpture from its facade:

Anti-Semitic Sculpture Outside Luther's Church Creates Controversy

HOW DOES THE DEATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS ATONE?

 

Birur by “Borg”?

13 September 201610 Elul 5776

One month ago, I wrote a blog post entitled The Not-So-Secret War Against the Torah. I was reminded of it when I read Binyamin’s statement that “..this world which the majority in it are against the Torah, and not against the Jews particularly,but against the Torah.”

In other words, if the Jews will agree to leave the Torah, they will be tolerated in the New World Religion and even be honored as the third pillar of “Abrahamic Faith” along with Xianity and Islam.

Also mentioned in that earlier blog post was the plan to inaugurate the AMEN House of Prayer at the beginning of a three-week “cultural festival called Mekudeshet:

“…for one week in September, a small structure of four walls and a bit of balcony, called the Alpert Youth Music Center will become AMEN, a home for something that has never before been attempted in the Holy City – a place of worship for the three great monotheistic religions “who share a passion for Jerusalem in which they will co-exist temporarily under the wings of the Almighty.”   (photo h/t Y.Y)


Under the radar, away from the public eye, a small clutch of religious leaders have been gathering for years to believe, to hope and to reconnect via the atavistic language of faith.

…The concept they have created, which the believing public is invited to join between September 5 to 11, is part of a festival known as Mekudeshet, Blessed, part of Jerusalem’s Season of Culture.”


The Mekudeshet homepage makes some startling statements:

…We have sought out ways to present Jerusalem as a place that is both holy and secular

…Jerusalem obligates us, always, to step off the well-trodden paths and to absorb both the bad and the good;….

…we understand that after all is said and done the essence of Jerusalem is contained within the Hebrew root for the words sacred and holy. It is from holiness that faith, hope, and the aspiration for tikkun olam (the concept of repairing the world) derive; holiness is the source of divisiveness, exclusion, and hatred; holiness is both the spring from which all the good of Jerusalem bursts forth and the foundation stone of all that is bad.

…we feel ready and mature enough to reach into Jerusalem’s heart of hearts and propose a more expansive and profound interpretation of the words holy, sanctification, and sacredness.

…We will try during the three weeks of Mekudeshet—or actually at any given moment— to go back to the source, to the spring, to the core, and to the heart, and to call on anyone who believes—no matter what they believe in—to come to Jerusalem. Come and find yourselves. Come in peace.

I don’t know if this was also part of that, but it fits the same agenda: Israeli Leaders Meet With Leaders of Eastern Faith Traditions.  (photo h/t/ R.L.)

According to Binyamin Golden, an autistic young man who is known for his “messages from Heaven” says this is the final test. Will we cooperate in being assimilated out of existence? Will we let go of our hold on the Holy Torah and embrace instead the Brotherhood of Man? God forbid!
Kedushah cannot be redefined as both holy and profane, both good and bad. A choice is required of each of us. The Torah bids us choose – blessing or curse, life or death. There is no both!

And there is no Torah Judaism combined with other “faith traditions”. It’s US or THEM, but there’s not BOTH!

From Part 2 of The Coming World Religion, foundational writings for the “New Age”:

The Jews, who refused even to leave their “Age of Aries” (the time of the Torah) to enter the Age of Pisces, (to merge with Christianity) are doubly behind in their evolutionary development.

..A necessary preparation for the leap upward is the isolation, refinement and preservation of the top 10% of humanity as the new “seed”. The major New Age efforts at indoctrination are therefore designed to get the other 90% of humanity to accept this elitist selection as necessary and just, and if possible to secure their cooperation in the purge.

…High on the list of those 90% which must be eliminated are the Jews who insist on Jewish identity: “When humanity has solved the Jewish problem (with the understanding and cooperation of the Jew)… it will do so by fusing the problem in one vast humanitarian situation. When that happens [the dissolution of the “Jewish race”], the problem [the presence of “separation” and “hate” in the world] will be rapidly solved and one of the major difficulties will disappear off the face of the earth.Racial fusion will then be possible… and then there will be peace on earth.”

When Jews forget that they are Jews, “we shall see a very different world.

Of course, what they plan will never come to fruition because HKB”H will not allow it. However, it is after all A TEST and many individuals, some with very good intentions, will fail this FINAL EXAM for Life. Don’t let it happen to you. Try not to let it happen to anyone you can possibily influence.

Choose blessing, choose life, choose separation in accordance with the demands of our Creator and His Holy Torah.

Do You Mind The Gap?

A popular T-shirt sold as a souvenir of the London Underground sports the phrase “mind the gap”. The gap of course is in between the tube train and the platform edge. The warning “mind the gap” is painted on the floor of the platform as well as being announced gapinside the tube train before and after the tube train stops at the station and opens its doors to let people on and off. The warning has been sounded and painted on tube platforms for many years and like many of the nursery rhymes like “rock a bye baby”, have been sung so many times, people are blissfully unaware of the meaning and ramifications of what they are singing! The warning of “mind the gap” in reality points out the potential horror of what could happen if somebody does not mind the gap: you fall under a train and you don’t have to be drunk to fall under a train either. Falling under a train and the train moving off again does not paint a pretty picture!

Travelling the religious tube train also comes with a “mind the gap” warning too. Chronologically speaking the earlier stations of Judaism as defined by the written torah certainly indicates a journey comprising the following:

12 And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good? 14 To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it. 15 Yet the Lord set his affection on your ancestors and loved them, and he chose you, their descendants, above all the nations—as it is today. Deut 10

The book of Deuteronomy provides a grand summary and exposition of all that has been stated previously in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. The rest of the Jewish scriptures shows a ‘warts and all’ history of how we the Jewish people with failure, success and ambivalence have and still to this day keep to the journey which G-d had planned out for us: to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you. for the naysayers we have the final word from the final prophet Malachi of the original testament:

“Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.

If the above admonition was not sufficient for us we also have further “mind the gap” warnings to the effect that even if someone from our own people comes along and performs miracles and tells prophecies which come to pass BUT instead offers a different journey to the journey G-d commands we are to put that dreamer or prophet to death (see Deut 13).

Other “mind the gap” moments of recent history include the attempts of the two clowns at One for Israel Ministry to convince Jewish folks of the historical validity of so called ‘messianic’ Judaism all married up with modern day evangelical Protestantism as with thehistory.png case of a recent propaganda article to fill in the gap with a short history of messianic Judaism. The history of messianic Judaism is indeed short rather like the short history of the Palestinian people. The facts on the ground is that so called messianic Judaism was invented in the 1960s as a syncretic movement that combines Christianity—most importantly, the Christian belief that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah—with elements of Judaism and Jewish tradition[1]. Prior to the invention of messianic Judaism in the 1960s there is a gap which goes way back to the time of the New Testament and the Gamliel test recorded in Acts 5:

38 So in the present case I advise you: Leave these (apostles including Peter) men alone. Let them go! For if their purpose or endeavor is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God.” 40 At this, they yielded to Gamaliel. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and released them.…

To go along with the idea of a continuum in the time gap between the Gamliel test and the present day invention of messianic Judaism, one must assume that the Apostles including Peter, were pork eating Sunday keeping Baptists. The reality is that there is no historical record of a messianic Judaism historically existing between the Gamliel test and the present day invention of messianic Judaism. In other words, Peter and the apostles failed the Gamliel test. The dangerous time gap includes therefore such wonderful pagan ideas of the Trinity, the virgin birth  and a divine messiah.

To defend the historical fact that so called messianic Judaism failed the Gamliel test, One for Israel Ministry would insist that the continuum in the time gap between the Gamliel test and the present day invention of messianic Judaism has so called ‘authentic Judaism’ of Moses replaced by so called “Rabbinic Judaism”. Is there really such a thing as Rabbinic Judaism?

heritage.png

The book Torah’s Goal published by One for Israel Ministries is an example of a theological agenda projected onto the Jewish Scriptures and Judaism. The theological agenda is a seriously flawed agenda emphasized right from the beginning of the book in the ‘definitions’ section. The definition section refers to the “Oral Law” as the “rabbinic traditions”.

Did the Sages “invent” Rabbinical Judaism? Did they change Judaism to fit their own “image” of G-d?

TUTUS2

Paradoxically messianic Judaism quotes Sages (Rabbis) who post-dated Yeshua himself. Another thing to note is that 100% of these Rabbis themselves said what they said and rejected the possibility that Yeshua was the Messiah let alone a divine Messiah. In other words, what the Rabbis said and meant by their words was COMPLETELY different to how messianics quote their words and then reinterpret them within their own Christian traditions and their latest spins doing the rounds of the various messianic circuits. Nothing could be further from the truth! Read the T’nach! Rabbis are mentioned in the Torah (just not by that term) – they are the judges and the teachers (just as they are today). They were the men Moses told you to listen to! The system of justice (rabbis are judges), then as now, follows the mitzvot (the “do” and “do not” rules) in the Torah — this includes how courts are established and how they “operate.” The Jewish system of judges began under Moses. Read Sh’mot (Exodus) chapter 18:

“But you must [also] seek out from among all the people capable, G-d-fearing men – men of truth, who hate injustice. You must then appoint them over [the people] as leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. 18:22 ‘Let them administer justice for the people on a regular basis. Of course, they will have to bring every major case to you, but they can judge the minor cases by themselves. They will then share the burden, making things easier for you. 18:23 If you agree to this, and G-d concurs, you will be able to survive. This entire nation will then also be able to attain its goal of peace.’” Sh’mot / Exodus 18:21-23.

From the time of Moses to today there have been Rabbis in every single generation from Moses which includes judges / teachers who have maintained the Torah and Jewish law. There has never been a break in that chain. “Rabbinical Judaism” has been handed down לדור ודור / l’dor v’dor (from generation to generation).

Messianic Judaism and its marriage with evangelical Protestantism fails to realize before it was written, the Torah already existed in our world as a lesson from Moses to the people (especially the elders) and their discussion with him. That’s what we call “the oral Torah,” which, contrary to popular misconception, preceded the written Torah. You could say, then, quite literally, that the fullest manifestation of that G-dly wisdom we call Torah is not how it is written in a book, but how it exists in the minds of the people that received it and put it into practice. And since the Torah is a way of life for all seasons, the Torah includes all the discussions and innovations that have organically emerged from it through the medium of those people over the past 3,300 years. A modern day innovation for example concerns what to do with electricity on Shabbat.

After all, a G-dly wisdom must be given by a G-d who is above time and foresees all. He gave us His Torah through Moses like a gardener plants a seed or a forester a sapling; yet unlike those, knowing all that would sprout and grow over the long life of that tree. “They are the shoot of My planting,” He says, “the craft of My hands in which I take pride.” Like a gardener, He plants the seed. Like a craftsman, He forms the final product, step by step.

Simply stated, with Judaism there is no gap to fall into unlike the gap between the Gamliel test and the present day invention of messianic Judaism. The gap of so called messianic Judaism invented and funded by evangelical Protestantism would have us believe in the idolatrous idea of a divine messiah which has to be part of a Triune godhead if their missionary funding is not to dry up that is!

In contrast any messiah according to what has always been understood by Judaism will always lead people to belief in G-d alone and for his people to follow his commandments according to the historically verifiable ongoing continuous discussions and innovations of our teachers and leaders over the centuries under a system established originally by Moses. The added bonus of being G-d’s chosen people is that we are already described as a kingdom of priests (Ex 19:6) and also that each one of us is a messiah (moshiac, see Psalm 105:11-15). In sum our ongoing traditions, innovations and discussions as an anointed and holy priesthood of people will be to the attraction of the gentiles:

19 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months [Rabbinic festivals folks] will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah. Therefore love truth and peace.”

20 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Many peoples and the inhabitants of many cities will yet come, 21 and the inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the Lord and seek the Lord Almighty. I myself am going.’ 22 And many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the Lord Almighty and to entreat him.”

23 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.’”

 MIND THE GAP!
