Jews for Jews; Jews for Christians; Christians for Jews

  • Jews are for Jews. The Jewish people are a family of the descendants of Abraham Isaac and Jacob recorded in the holy bible in the book of Genesis also called the Old Testament.
  • Many hearts of the Jewish people have opened up to Jesus. Unfortunately many hearts of Christians and Jews have closed up to religion and God. Netanyahu his heart is open to all human beings.
  • Jesus did not come to replace Judaism. 

The Jewish people and their leaders are beginning to soften up about their feeling about Jesus the Messiah.  Christians are beginning to soften up about their feeling about Jews. The event of crucifixion is recorded in history in the first century Judea between 30-33 AD. The crucifixion is recorded in New Testament epistles and other ancient sources as an historical event. The softening up of the heart of stone was part of the Jewish prophecy of Ezekiel, I will give to you a new heart and a new spirit, I will remove from you a heart of stone and give you a heart flesh.

Jews are for Jews.   The Jewish people are a family of the descendants of Abraham Isaac and Jacob recorded in the holy bible in the book of Genesis also called the Old Testament.  Jews have a strong family bond and were given by Moses a religion Judaism to strengthen the family unit of the Jewish people and to make them a nation.

Moses at the splitting of the Red Sea.

The Bible Exodus relates that the population of the Jewish people grew when they were living in the nation of Egypt.  When they went down to live in Egypt during a famine, their number was only seventy souls. After 210 years their numbers grew to almost one million souls.  They left Egypt through miracles including 10 plagues, and splitting of the Red Sea under the leadership of Moses the prophet.  God gave Moses guidance and instruction how to deliver the Jewish people from Egypt and to build their nation.

The Jewish people received the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.  These were two tablets written on stone.  The first tablets were written by the finger of God which Moses broke when he saw the building of the Golden Calf. He afterwards went up on the mountain for forty days and forty nights without eating or drinking and received from God instructions to write by his hand another set of tablets containing the Ten Commandments. When Moses gave to the Jewish people the Torah which is called the five books of Moses it was written on parchments, he also gave to them Oral instructions about how to interpret the words of the Torah for the Jewish people to make a nation. Moses did not go into the land of Israel. His student Joshua was chosen to lead the Jewish people into the land.

In the Bible is recorded that there were two giving of the Ten Commandments on tablets, one was broken by Moses when he saw the building of the Golden Calf, the other became the religion and constitution of Israel.  Also in history there are two laws which were given by Moses called the Oral Law and the Written Law.  In Judaism the Oral law is more important than the written law.  The Oral Law later became written down in a formal orderly way called Shulcan Aruch Code of Jewish laws. In Judaism preference is given over learning the Law and the observance of the commandments which is completely national.  Secondary in Judaism is understanding the secrets of God which are hidden in the written Torah.  Moses put all the secrets of God in the written Torah.  He also did not hide that there were two sets of Ten Commandments; and two laws the Oral and Written law. Moses was a prophet of truth.  Truth combines religion with faith. Truth is both national and universal.

During the period of the second temple, the time of Jesus and his disciples the people became interested in the secrets of the Torah and less interested in strict observances of the commandments like was the custom.  The nation became divided into two parts Pharisees Orthodox Rabbis and Sadducees those following the written law which contained deep secrets about unity of God.  Jesus emphasized unity of God before the strict observance of the commandments national Judaism.  He was considered a rebel and sentenced to death.  According to the law of the land of Israel it was forbidden to change the law even for prophets. The Oral law was the law of the land.  Truth was not as important as National Security.

The Pharisees are called the Stiff Necked men of the people.  They interpreted the Torah strictly without accepting leniencies even for people who were suffering emotionally. Ezekiel in his prophecy, I will give to you a new heart and a new spirit, I will remove from you a heart of stone and give you a heart flesh expressed the need for change which in those times was a threat for National Security.  The Oral law strengthens National Jewish Unity.  In those days this was their only concern. The Biblical Nation of Israel survived for more than 400 years which was a great accomplishment. Very few empires last this long.

The written Torah combines National Interests which are part of the laws and commandments the Jewish God of the Nation of Israel and the Universal God who is mercy, love and freedom. These are two conflicting aspects of spirituality which are fear of God and love of God.  It is difficult to combine both. They are opposites like male and female. The Pharisees Nationally interested religious leaders denied that there are two sides to spirituality and two separate laws.  It was watched over as a hidden secret.  Jesus preached two separate laws National and Universal.

The words of Ezekiel the prophet have become revealed in the last eight hundred years in Judaism. Old Manuscripts were discovered revealing the truth that there are two sides to spirituality and two separate laws.  The Jewish sages have studied these new manuscripts, a portion of these sages have accepted them.  There are still those sages which reject the concept of two laws, two sides of spirituality.  Jesus sacrificed his life for the secrets of the Written Torah.  Christianity adopted the Old Testament, prophets and writings as the covenant of God.  They also accepted Jesus as the Messiah.

Jesus could be the Messiah for the whole world because the written Torah of Moses was given for the whole world. Jewish religion is for the sake of National Jewish Unity.  Judaism relates to the needs of the Jewish people as a nation and the Oral Torah is the foundation and root of survival of the Jewish people as a separate nation. Moses gave the world Jesus the Messiah.  He also secured for the Jews that there nation would survive until the end of time. Moses is praised in the Torah for his humility.

Through the study of these old manuscripts the eyes and hearts of the many Jewish people have opened to Love Jesus.  Jews also need love. Jesus is love.  Jews also need to believe in the resurrection and Jesus the Messiah his disciples claimed resurrected after his crucifixion. Moses left the world without anyone knowing his burial site.  In these old manuscripts has been revealed the desire of Moses to resurrect at the end of time to bring peace and unity to the world and all religions.  Fundamental Judaism is waiting for the Messiah and the resurrection at the end of time.  Progressive Jewish Spirituality accepts the resurrection of Jesus which occurred three days after his death and also believes in the resurrection of Moses which may have come before or after the resurrection of Jesus. Together is the blessing of Double Salvation.

There is a need for religion in life and a need for faith in God and the resurrection.  Jesus did not come to replace Judaism.  His goal in World Faith was to be the Messiah remembered through the new religion of Christianity.  Judaism continues to connect to Moses as their prophet and Jesus is a part of the prophecy of Moses.  There is a place for a king messiah for the world, and a king the messiah for the separate nations and religions of the world.  Jesus revealed through resurrection can be the messiah of the world the children of Adam.  For the nation of Israel the Messiah is the righteous saint devoted to Judaism excelling over all other saints which may come in each generation or he can be the Rebbe of Chabad Lubavitch in the last generation. Just like Moses gave to the Jewish people two laws written and oral so there are two Messiahs in the world for each law for each purpose National and Universal. The Universal side of God is still suppressed in religious Judaism as can be seen in this video.

Many hearts of the Jewish people have opened up to Jesus.  Unfortunately many hearts of Christians and Jews have closed up to religion and God. Netanyahu his heart is open to all human beings.
