Finding out about Messianic Judaism, I thought it was the vehicle that the Spirit of Yeshua would use to lead both Jew and Gentile into Torah observance. Many have come out of it with Torah in their hearts, contrary to what the leadership would have. It has, and is, accomplishing the purpose of the original organizers.
Over the years, the main Messianic Jewish organizations have denied their heritage for the porridge of the Church. It has received many Jewish people whom they make to walk like the mainstream Gentile Church, only meeting on Sabbath instead of Sunday, and doing Passover demonstrations to win more Jews, and wearing the trappings of the Orthodox Jewish community (the kipa, the tallit, etc.).
Because of this hardening, I no longer feel a need to try and correct it, or get excited about what so and so says, etc. They have resisted the Spirit of the Lord in this vital area.
It wasnt until I read a letter explaining the vision of the original leaders, that it all came together for me.
Since 1983, Ive watched Messianic Judaism grow and considered myself and my congregation a part of it, even though we were never officially a member of either the MJA (Messianic Jewish Alliance), or the UMJC (Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations).
To my surprise, the Lord would not let me officially align myself with either group. At first, what I thought was poor theology on their part, concerning Torah for both Jew and Gentile, would change when the leaders saw the Light.
This is why believers should separate themselves from these things, and others like it.
And of course, leading a Jew to his Jewish Messiah, but not teaching him to walk in Torah, is an ultimate irony. Howard Ervin, the first Baptist pastor in New Jersey to be filled with the Holy Spirit in the 1960s, told his Hebrew class on Psalms at Oral Roberts University in 1981 that, The only thing Greek about the New Testament are the words.
Daniel Juster, part of the leadership of the Union of Messianic Congregations for many years, in a letter to Boaz Michael of First Fruits of Zion states, the founding fathers of Messianic Judaism intended Messianic Judaism only as an evangelical outreach to unsaved Jews.
Daniel Juster goes on to say that it was never the intention of those men to walk in Torah, for themselves or for the Gentiles.
Sabbath and Passover were only deceptive tools in this charade.
The founding fathers, as well as the current leadership, do not hold Torah, Sabbath and Passover as holy.Anyone can say that the lights of a Christmas tree represent the Light of Jesus.
