ONE IN MESSIAH
"It is finished." [John 19. 30]
These are the words uttered by our LOVING SAVIOR, the LORD YESHUA ha’MASHIACH on the Altar outside Jerusalem. But, what was finished? Not HIS life, neither HIS work of salvation, it is still going on. All the sacrifices of flesh in OLD COVENANT is now FULFILLED. YESHUA the ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON OF THE MOST HIGH GOD came, not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill it. Not to do away with the Law, but to perform what the Law and the prophets required and to make good what it demanded and prophesied.
When we believe on the LORD JESUS OF NAZARETH, we no longer need to cling to that from which we have been delivered! Jews and Gentiles who believe in MESSIAH are now HIS chosen, HIS people. There is no difference. We are one in the body of YESHUA, the DOOR of our salvation. There is but one body of believers (Jew & Gentile) in the RISEN ONE! By HIS sacrificial death, all Jews and Gentiles who believe in HIM have been made into one new man!
"Therefore, if any man (Jew or Gentile) be in MESSIAH, he is a new creature (creation); old things are passed away, behold all things have become new." [2 Corinthians 5. 17] The new nature refers to the spiritual transformation that occurs within the inner man when one believes in YESHUA ha’MASHIACH and knows HIM intimately as their personal SAVIOR, LORD GOD & EVERLASTING KING. New as opposed to the old person because of the change being given a new nature, that must be cultivated, nurtured by spiritual decisiveness to grow in the LORD JESUS. The HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD can accomplish this life-changing transformation for all who will only believe (trust and obey).
"SCRIPTURE has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of CHRIST JESUS might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the Law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Therefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us to CHRIST, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For you are all the children of GOD by faith in YESHUA ha’MASHIACH." [Galatians 3. 22 - 25] Truly, it is such a precious and lovely family our HEAVENLY FATHER has given us — you are that special member!
Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
May your life be a witness and beneficiary of GOD MOST HIGH'S care, love and presence. HIS grace is greater then all our needs!
O GOD, do not keep silent; do not hold aloof; do not be quiet, O EL! For YOUR enemies rage, Your foes assert themselves, they plot craftily against YOUR people, take counsel against YOUR treasured ones. They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation; Israel’s name will be mentioned no more.” Deal with them, O my GOD, make them like thistledown, like chaff driven by the wind, as a fire burns a forest, as flames scorch the hills, pursue them with YOUR tempest, terrify them with YOUR storm. Cover their faces with shame so that they seek YOUR NAME, O YEHOWAH. May they be frustrated and terrified, disgraced and doomed forever. May they know that YOUR NAME, YOURS alone is YEHOWAH, the MOST HIGH over all the earth. [see Psalms/Tehillym 83]
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace.
