Two yokes

Posted: October 25, 2012 in ecclesia, Jesus

Jesus says take his yoke upon you and freely bring forth fruit to the glory of God.

Hebrew roots say take a yoke of bondage upon you and be shut up under the law of Moses.

Without the holy spirit and the reality and resurrection power of Christ shed abroad in a mans heart by faith, the “best” that unconverted man can do is keep days and feasts, use hebrew names for God, and adhere to strict dietary rules.  Yet such a man will die in self-righteousness, pride, and deception then ultimately be condemned at the judgment.  The answer to this mans emptiness is to look to these things, where as the christian is to look to Christ and live.

1Timothy 1:5  The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.   Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions.

    Hebrew Roots = Cut off from God

    Romans 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

    Galatians 4:9… how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

    This is a great reminder and warning not to get caught up in the Hebrew Roots movement that has become so prevalent lately.

    I’ve noticed lots of these deceivers on Pal Talk, snaring innocent newcomers to the faith. It may sound “holy” on the surface, but is indeed a snare and trap sent by the enemy of our souls. This is the importance of warning new Christians and urging them to get into the diligent study of the Word for themselves so they won’t be taken in by the Judaizers out there, and there are many.

    I have personally encountered, the so-called “Messianic New Testament Jews” who were just as much involved in Hebrew Roots as any of the old time Judaizers in Paul’s day. Of course, one doesn’t have to be a Hebrew Roots adherent to be snared by pride, self righteousness and deception. We all have to watch and pray and examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. It’s a daily walk.

    Jesus bless you,

    Beware of these people coming into your lives and local assemblies. They say that real christians worship on Saturday instead of Sunday. Jesus says real Christians worship everyday in Spirit and in truth. Don’t settle for the once a week shadow that hebrew roots people exalt themselves in.

    Paul calls them dogs. They come into spy out your liberty in Christ, give no place to them even for a moment. Usually their testimony reads like

    I use to be a false convert that attended religious services on sunday, now that has all changed… because … now I attend religious services on saturday….

    behold the power of religion.

    The one that gets me is the line, ” I only call Jesus Yeshua because that is his real name! You don’t know Him because you call Him Jesus.” Or how about, “God should only be called Yahway” or “He should only be called Jehovah.” People who think and talk this way obviously don’t know Him. The funny part is they become so angry when I don’t agree with them.

    There is power in the name of Jesus, and I call Him that. I also call Him Lord, Darling, My Best Friend, Adorable, Precious, Sweet, Amazing, Romantic, God, Healer, Deliverer, Truth, the Word, my Creator. I call God the Father Daddy, my Father, Righteousness, Holiness, Omnipotent, All Seeing, All Knowing, All Powerful. I call the Holy Spirit God, my Comforter, My Inspiration, my Protector, my Understanding, my Anointing, The list gets larger the longer I walk with God. He is a continual unfolding of Himself into my life.

    i cannot find enough words to express His many meanings to me. The dictionary is so insufficient. I am sure He is delighted with all the terms of endearment I call Him by.
