ONE NEW MAN/MESSIANIC

SUMMARY OF MESSIANIC PRACTICES/BELIEFS:

MESSIANIC BELIEVERS:

  1. include both Jewish and Gentile followers of Jesus Christ of Nazareth/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach.
  2. Are loyal to Jewish heritage and to New Covenant Teachings/Faith.
  3. JESUS/YESHUA IS FULLY DIVINE, IN ONENESS WITH THE FATHER.
  4. SALVATION comes through JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA HA-MASHIACH and no other (John 14:6).
  5. There is one GOD (Deut.6:4), Who is eternally existant.
  6. The Bible – Old and New Covenant – is the only divinely inspired, authoritative, and eternal Word of God (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21).
  7. The nation of Israel has been chosen by God as a channel through which blessings could come to all the nations on earth. God will BLESS those who bless Israel and curse those who curse them (Gen.12:2,3).
  8. Know JESUS as YESHUA, because that is His Name in Hebrew, & that is how the disciples knew Him.
  9. BELIEVE IN FOLLOWING “THE WAY” as the early disciples, and followers of Jesus/Yeshua made reference to it. Such reference can be found in many places in Acts: 9:2; 18:26; 19:9,23; 22:4; 24:14,22. Jesus/Yeshua identifies Himself as “The Way,” in John 14:6.  2 Peter. 2:2 makes reference to “The Way of Truth” when explaining the belief in following Jesus/Yeshua. Heb.10:19,20 makes a similar reference, when describing what it meant to believe/follow Jesus/Yeshua Messiah.
  10. Messianics understand that Jews do not stop being Jews, nor do they need to be converted to Christianity when they are born again. When Saul was stricken on the road to Damascus, he was not converted to Christianity, nor did he stop being a Jew. He simply became a Jewish man who discovered the true Messiah. He discovered “The Way.” 
     
    Jews and Gentiles who are BORN AGAIN IN CHRIST BY THE HOLY SPIRIT’S INDWELLING, are grafted in together as one new man to become fellow partakers of the covenant and richness of the Olive Tree (Romans  11:17-21; Deuteronomy 7:6-10; Ephesians 2:11-13; Hebrews 6:13-18).

    NOW STUDY THE SCRIPTURE SETS BELOW:

SHABBAT SHALOM! 24.01.20

 

EPHESIANS 2:11-16

11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands—

12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,

15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,

16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.

EPHESIANS 2:14 For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.

ROMANS 11:16-21

16 For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,

18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.”

20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.

21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.

Jews and Gentiles who are believers in/followers of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH/YESHUA HA-MASHIACH, have been grafted together into the Olive Tree as one new man to become fellow partakers of Yahweh’s covenant:

DEUTERONOMY 7:6-10

6 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.

7 The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples;

8 but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

9 “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;

10 and He repays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slack with him who hates Him; He will repay him to his face.
