Messianic Judaism or Nazarene Judaism

At these pages you may find articles which want to show you the real Jesus Christ, the Nazarene Jewish rebbe or master teacher Jeshua of the tribe of King David.

Jeshua-ists focus on the Dvar Hashem (Word of God) and on His sent one who got authorised to speak in His Name, and wants to provide the knowledge of Nazarene Judaism practised by the first Jewish believers of the time of Jeshua.

The publishers of this Web Site recognize the extensive damage done to the Jewish people over the centuries by attempts to convert them to Christianity. We do not support any of these missionary activities, either historically or currently.

If you are Jewish, we do not wish you to give up your faith but want to show you how the Nazarene Jeshua presented teachings which are of utmost importance to the world and can help us to come closer to the Most High Maker of all things.

We strive to influence goyim or non-Jews to return to the Hebraic Roots of the Original One True Faith, to Jewish Halachah, to Rabbinic authority, and to Torah.

The Jews who want to accept Jeshua as their Messiah can stay Jews by faith by the promise given to Abraham (Romans 4:9-11; Galatians 3:29), and strict observants of the Torah (Joshua 1:8), fulfilling all the commandments and ordinances and decrees given by “ יהוה YHWH” “Jehovah: the One true Elohim“ (a single unit – not Trinity), urging others to comply with them.

The Jews accepting Jeshua, of whom the Halakhah or Jewish Law and Prophets spoke, as the Rod from the stump of Yishai, being the Mashiach of Israel or Messiah (Isaiah 11)  and coming to believe that he is the Ben HaElohim or son of God (Matthew 26:63), but is not Elohim, knowing that “the fullness of the deity resides physically” in him (Colossians 2:9; John 1:14) and has received authority and power from the Adonai to heal our wounds and our sins (Exodus 23:20-21 and Isaiah 53:3-12).

Messianic Jews and Jeshua-ists are those who want to meet with יהוה {Jehovah} our Elohim through His sent one, the Nazarene rebbe Jeshua (Romans 10:9-10) who will come at the end of time (Revelation 1:7). Believing in that Nazarene master teacher we hope every day this given mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5), who is our kohen gadol or highpriest by always (Hebrews 6:20; 7:4), and is seated at the right hand of Hashem Jehovah our Elohim (Acts 7:55; Hebrews 10:12) shall be there for us.

Two thousand years ago Jeshua was a devote Jew living among Jewish people. “Jeshua,” by which Jesus was called during his time on earth, is itself a Hebrew word for “Salvation.” Jeshua kept Torah, or the Law of Moses. He studied the Jewish Scriptures that many now know as the “Old Testament”, and read them aloud at the local synagogue on Shabbes or Shabbat (Sabbath) (Luke 4:16). He was called rabbi (Teacher/Master) by his followers.

We believe that Jeshua did not come to abolish the law and the prophets, but did come to fulfill or to complete them.

Matthew 5:17 (TS2009)
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.e I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: eThe Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures.

By his Korban sacrifice or offering, giving himself as a ransom and God accepting this “lamb of God” all people have the opportunity to be saved and to find the Way to God. By the grace of Jeshua and him showing the Way, we can find a better life and prepare ourselves to be ready to enter the small gate to the Kingdom of God.

As followers of Jeshua we want to keep to his teachings and, like him, want to keep to the Mitzvot of the Most High.

We express love and unconditional support to Israel and to all Jews, and recognize them as the chosen people of God (John 4:22).

We believe that false teaching brought a twist in Christianity and with the First Council of Constantinople, giving the Nicene Creed, followed by many other Councils and synods the cancer grow rampant and made many in Christendom blind for the biblical Truth.

Believers in Jeshua suffered increased opposition from both Roman authorities and Jewish synagogue leaders. As more and more Gentiles came to accept this faith and as the original Jewish apostles passed away, the Jewishness of that first-century faith was gradually lost, but people may not be mistaken, all over the world there stayed people in the Truth and continued to spread the Good News and the reason to worship the Only One True God.

We are convinced that real followers of Christ Jesus have to take distance from the many false teachings, namely doctrines of man. Though we also recognise that it is written and a fact that there shall be many people who shall fall away from the Biblical Truth and many who shall not open their heart to the Most High Elohim.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 (TS98)

1 Timothy 4
1 But the Spirit distinctly says that in latter times some shall fall away from the belief, paying attention to misleading spirits, and teachings of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having been branded on their own conscience, 3 forbidding to marry, saying to abstain from foods which Elohim created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 Because every creature of Elohim is good, and none is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is set apart by the Word of Elohim and prayer.

We are convinced that God gave man the right to make up their own life and their own world, Him not going to fight with them.

Genesis 6:3 (TS98)
3 And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”

Being of the flesh we do know we should not be of this world but be children of God, willing not to be a member of a harlot to be a member or participant of the Body of Christ.

Knowing that we are fallible and are able to do wrong things, we also know that by regretting the wrongs we did and by trying to do the good things, we receive forgiveness because Elohim (God) offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ) (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11).

Acts 3:19-21 (TS98)
19 “Repent therefore and turn back, for the blotting out of your sins, in order that times of refreshing might come from the presence of the Master, 20 and that He sends יהושע Messiah, pre-appointed for you, 21 whom heaven needs to receive until the times of restoration of all matters, of which Elohim spoke through the mouth of all His set-apart prophets since of old.

Romans 10:9-10 (TS98)
9 That if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved.

We are fully aware that though we might be saved by the offer of Jeshua, we still need to believe in the Messiah and do works of faith, because without such actions or deeds our faith shall be nothing.

John 3:16-21 (TS98)
16 “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. 17 “For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim.
19 “And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. 20 “For everyone who is practising evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 “But the one doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works are clearly seen, that they have been wrought in Elohim.”

James 2:26 (TS98)
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief is dead without the works.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (TS98)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the reign of Elohim? Do not be deceived. Neither those who whore, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy of gain, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers shall inherit the reign of Elohim. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were set apart, but you were declared right in the Name of the Master יהושע and by the Spirit of our Elohim.

Jeshua-ists want to offer a a warm and welcoming place to worship and make friends to Jews, Messianic Jews and goyim or non-Jews. We want to see congregations spread all over the world  that values relationships with each other and with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We want all people to feel welcome and comfortable within our services.

Committed to a healthy expression of our faith in God, in light of our faith in His son Jeshua, within our Jewish cultural milieu and within this system of things we like to invite you and your friends treasuring our relationship and unity with all those who acknowledge the Lordship of Jeshua the Messiah worldwide, in respect to all cultures and races, all people made in the image of God.
