I appreciate your joining me in this great adventure!
Work hard. Do your best. Keep your word. Never get too big for your britches. Trust in God. Have no fear, and never forget a friend. — Harry S. Truman
I am in the process of authoring my first book entitled Our Messiah Few REALLY Know with a handful of other titles in the wings. This represents a labor of love that has spanned over two and a half decades from Bible study that is foreign to most modern day Christians — that is, from a Hebraic perspective and from eye-opening content contained within the Dead Sea Scrolls. Christ certainly hailed from the tribe of Judah (Hebrews 7:14), so, logically, it makes sense to study the Scriptures from that perspective.
While I consider myself a Judeo-Christian, I am not a proponent of the Hebraic Roots movement. It is no different from all the rest. In modern Judaism, there are primarily Orthodox, Conservative, Reform/Progressive, and Karaite movements; in Catholicism, there is Roman as well as Greek Orthodoxy with numerous orders and rites; in Protestantism, there are movements such as evangelical, charismatic, and fundamentalist with denominations such as Episcopalians, Lutherans, Mennonites, Anglicans, Calvinists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Amish, Quakers, Methodists, Seventh Day Adventists, Pentecostals, Assemblies of God, Church of God, Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, and many others of varying flavors; and finally there are Latter Day Saints/Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and numerous non-denominational churches. All of these are proclaiming that they are the TRUE church and only they teach the truth.
Pontius Pilate put it best when he said: “What is truth?” (John 18:33-38 concentrating on v38). There is only ONE way – THE WAY! How can there be so many movements, denominations, sects, orders, and rites all proclaiming to teach the truth? Have they not added to the Word through false traditions (embellishments unsupported by the Scriptures), precepts of men (manufactured theology), and doctrines of demons (assimilated paganism)? The Scriptures warn us specifically against ALL OF THESE! Note that Matthew 15:5 is in reference to the korban sacrifices.
After all these years, the Holy Spirit — our Helper sent to us on the Feast of Weeks/Pentecost in 36 CE (John 14:16-17) — is still providing new insight as I “grope for The Way.” Hopefully, you will enjoy your own journey as I have mine! May you be written in the Book of Life (Heb. Sefer HaChaim).
