Pondering...

As I'm thinking about Israel and her place of importance in what I believe are the last days before Christ's return, I am following a serious discussion about whether or not believers should convert to Judaism and follow the law of the torah. It seems that if satan can't get us with complacency, out right sin, or following deceiving ministries with false prophets and feathers and gold dust falling from ceilings and false claims of end-time signs, then he will strike up debates that totally keep people occupied and arguing, instead of fulfilling Yeshua's last commandment: Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

Yes, satan is working overtime to deceive many.

Hmmm...this sounds a lot like the argument from the first century that all men should be circumcised if they were to be Christians.

Following the law of the Torah is legalism. Satan has used that throughout the ages to divide Christians as well as to keep them from understanding God's true gift -- His Grace.

Romans 3:20 "Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin."

I know... makes me sad, because there is so much we can learn from Messianic Jews, without being put into bondage...I think Paul addresses this with the Galatians.

The Law, written on men's heart! Yes indeed!

It can also be said, IMO, that Christians, being the inheritors of the Covenant, are actually a part of "Israel".

This reinforces our connection with Jews and the actual "State" of Israel.

Though not always the case historically, due to man not following Christ, Jews and Christians are by definition, brothers and sisters "in" Israel.

I pray that ALL come to know Jesus Christ!
