Messianic Jews have a major Identity problem
As an introduction I ask the reader to carefully read Acts Chapter 10 to see where God used a "GENTILE" and more shocking a Roman Centurion, Cornelius, to show and confirm to Peter that God had opened the door to the Gentiles and there was now Spiritually speaking NO distinction between Jew or Gentile Christians. Ask any Messianic Jew and they frankly avoid the word Christian. They are compelled to call themselves "Messianic Jews". My perfect case in point is Amir Tsarfati telling a group of young Christians in one of his tours to not refer to themselves as Christian. By the way Amir deleted the video after I called him out on it. See my notes on Amir below. But there are much deeper and more serious issues with Messianic Jews especially related to Eschatology please see below.
Galatians 3:28 KJV
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 1 King James Version
1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Galatians 2:7 - 16 KJV
7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)
9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.
10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
First, it must be clear that I write this Blog in the heart of love among the body of Christ in that love which adheres to the infallible word of God that is sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart; in the heart of love serving Him who loved us first and called us unto himself; in the heart of love which demands we use the word of God to speak and exhort, and rebuke with all authority; in the heart of love that loves all scripture we have which is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness so that we Christians may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
I've been observing this phenomenon of Messianic Jews and their identity crisis for the past 20 years. I remember vividly being caught up in the Zionist movement back in the 1990s. I subscribed to every Messianic Jewish organization I could find. I faithfully financially supported the Jews for Christ organization for years. I would attend Seders and be overwhelmed by the awesome experience of participating in this incredible sharing of love in what I thought was the true Passover.
Then, after dedicating my life fully to Christ in 2001, I started to wake up and really started reading my Bible. All of the many Messianic Jews I had been following were saying many things that did not add up to what my King James Bible was telling me. Unlike many Christians who wake up from a blind following of Messianic Judaism, I did not fall into the trap of Replacement Theology and become a convert of AntiSemitism. God Forbid! Let's be clear, I love the Jewish people and truly believe the Jewish remnant are God's chosen and the Church has not replaced God's chosen. But sadly, Satan has worked the same Pharisaical blood lines down to the present day and this is what I address.
It happened one morning while I was living in Viet Nam at a coffee shop with a new Navy veteran friend I had met. I'm retired Navy and both of our wives are Vietnamese. We're both Christians and he explained that I was a Zionist and that's as far from being a good witness for Christ as one could be. Our conversation went south from there. I accused him of being Antisemitic and he tried in vain to convince me that Anti Zionism is absolutely NOT Antisemitism. I then accused him of replacement theology, but he denied that with sound proof. I was confused, but we agreed to change the subject. Even our wives were alarmed by our heated exchange. And then my friend literally prayed a very prophetic prayer, "Dear Lord I pray Randy's eyes be opened to the truth. AMEN!"
A few years later my shipmate's prayer was answered after much research and prayer I wrote this Blog:
AntiZionism is NOT AntiSemitism
I also slowly began to see the Messianic Jews were behaving no different than Peter who forgot who he was in Christ and fall into the trap of the Judaizers. See who were the Judaizers: Link:
Read it for yourself. Paul verbally blasted him in public, for all to see. Make no mistake people. This is serious. Jesus Christ is our mantle. Do NOT be deceived by all the craft of the Messianic Jews. I have many links below where I detail by calling out many false teachers and what they're really promoting and it is NOT biblical and at worst preaching another Gospel. They all basically follow the same paradigm: Failure to understand the book of Galatians. Preaching a Works Based Failure to understand Biblical Eschatology and joining an unholy alliance with Dominion Theology and even go so far as to remove the significance and purpose of Christianity. I have all documented below in the NOTES below.
There are a myriad of other serious issues including their continual programming that IF one speaks Hebrew they truly have a deeper understanding of Scripture than a King James Bible reading Christian. When I read Dr. Grady's book, "Final Authority" of the King James Bible, it became abundantly clear that I did not have to speak Hebrew to understand the Bible as these Messianic Jews hammer home continually. Albeit using in Greek and Hebrew are important in sound Hermeneutics and Exegesis . Nevertheless, the King James Bible extremely sound in its translation, purified 7 times. See notes below about Bible Translations.
Another problem Messianic Jews have is truly understanding they are a new creature. They can not wrap their minds around Galatians 3:28 KJV. Amir Tsarfati has told his Christian followers to not refer to themselves as Christian. I had the links and his staff went in and deleted the video. See links below.
A myth the Messianic Jews as well as most Evangelical Christians believe is the Judeo-Christian Values.
A true Christian walk is not founded upon Judeo-Christian values. Truth is, there never has been a Judeo-Christian value associated with a true follower of Jesus Christ. Judeo - Christian history other than Jesus Christ was a Jew and the first Christians were "converted Jews" yes, but to say shared values is not true. Ask any honest Rabbi and they will agree. What has been and does exist is Jewish Heritage and Christian Heritage. But combining the two mutually exclusive religions is heresy for both true Christian and true Jew alike. As Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits puts it, "Judaism is Judaism because it rejects Christianity, and Christianity is Christianity because it rejects Judaism." I'd like to add: The divider: Jesus Christ. Judaism is closer to Islam than it is to Christianity. Please do your own research focused on how Muslims and Jews view Jesus Christ. And actually every Muslim I've ever spoken to has a higher regard for Jesus as compared to every Jew I've ever spoken to. And what angers both Muslim and Jew alike is when we Christians call Jesus Christ God incarnate. Note: For those who claim I am antisemitic or practice replacement theology, both beliefs which I abhor, I invite you to my Blog: "AntiSemitism is not the same as AntiZionism" All false teaching of Dominion Theology, Liberal Social Gospel, Prosperity Gospel, Conservative Evangelical, Pentecost, Apostolic, etc. merge and blur lines that scripture clearly delineates and this includes the false understanding of Judeo-Christian values. Why is this a problem? Please read my Blog: AntiSemitism is NOT AntiZionism to read why the Zionists, the heritage of the Pharisees are behind the movement to bring in the Kingdom of the AntiChrist along with the Conservative Christian Evangelical movement.
And finally although not fully encompassing all issues with the Messianic Jewish identity crisis is the Ecumenical trap. In order to gain acceptance in mainstream Christianity. Many Messianic Jewish leaders are falling prey to ecumenism. Please read Blogs below:
