II Timothy 2:11 Here is a statement you can trust: If we have died with him, we will also live with him. 12 If we persevere, we will also rule with him If we disown him, he will also disown us. 13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself. 14 Keep reminding people of this, and charge them solemnly before the Lord not to engage in word-battles. They accomplish nothing useful and are a catastrophe for the hearers! 15 Do all you can to present yourself to God as someone worthy of his approval, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because he deals straightforwardly with the Word of the Truth. 16 But keep away from godless babbling, for those who engage in it will only become more ungodly, 17 and their teaching will eat away at people like gangrene. Hymenaeus and Philetus are among these; 18 they have missed the mark, as far as the truth is concerned, by saying that our resurrection has already taken place; and they are overturning some people's faith. 19 Nevertheless, God's firm foundation stands, stamped with these words: "The Lord knows his own," and, "Let everyone who claims he belongs to the Lord stand apart from wrongdoing." CJB


A short and sweet explanation of things!

Yahshua is the groom. Israel was the bride. They were married at Mount Sinai. Did he throw away his bride and replace her with another? Or did he remarry his bride? He REMARRIED his bride. I praise YHWH that I am Israel! Through faith I am joined to his family and become his bride. Who was the law given too? ISRAEL.. his bride.


  1. Amein! Short and sweet :)

    Love it!

    Be blessed.


  2. Amein, short & to the point, sometimes exactly what we need to hear.

  3. Something I saw in today's Torah portion.. Moses was married to a gentile... Moses is a "messianic figure" Joseph was married to a gentile a "messianic figure" but what about Zimri? why was it so wrong for Zimri and the other thousands of Israelite men to marry gentile women? The thing is, the Israelite men, instead of drawing their wives into a Torah Lifestyle, were drawn into the Gentile lifestyle.

    So what about Moshe and Yoseph? They were both Torah adherents, despite their Gentile wives.

    And now let's look at our Messiah.. who has a wife - known as the church. Should Messiah's wife be walking as a Gentile or as a Torah adherent? The church is made up of predominantly Gentile humans... .. but we should be marrying into the Messiah's culture, not trying to draw him into a Gentile culture... for Zimri and Kozbi were killed for that very thing.

  4. Regarding to be "grafted in" to Israel:
    (See Glossaries on the below Netzarim-website for terms that you don’t understand.)
    To differentiate, A logical analysis (found in www.netzarim.co.il (Netzarim.co.il is the website of the only legitimate Netzarim-group)) (including the logical implications of the research by Ben-Gurion Univ. Prof. of Linguistics Elisha Qimron of Dead Sea Scroll 4Q MMT) of all extant source documents of “the gospel of Matthew” (which is a redaction of Netzarim Hebrew Matityahu (which was perfectly in harmony with Torah) and anti-Torah) and archeology proves that the historical Ribi Yehosuha ha-Mashiakh (the Messiah) from Nazareth and his talmidim (apprentice-students), called the Netzarim, taught and lived Torah all of their lives; and that Netzarim and Christianity were always antithetical.

    The origins of the “Noakhide laws” are the Netzarim Jews. It was the beit din ha- (Jewish court of) Netzarim that decided about these. But those mitzwot (directives or military-style orders) were only a starting point not the end. The end point was non-selectively Torah-observance. Read more in the “Benei Noakh”-section in the “History Museum” in the above Netzarim-website.

    Thos whom believed that Ribi Yehoshua was the Mashiakh, and whom wanted to be grafted in to Israel was in the first century required to first practise some of the basic mitzwot (outlined in the above section I referred to), then come before the beit din ha-Netzarim and obligate themselves to do their utmost to learn and to keep all of the mitzwot for geirim (see “Glossaries” in the website I referred to) non-selectively; and the beit din ha-Netzarim would grant the title geir toshav. This was and still is the Halakhah established by the beit-din ha-Netzarim.

    The logical implications of Tan’’kh (documented on the website of www.netzarim.co.il) is that one is not “grafted into Israel by faith in Yeshua”. In contrast the requirements for those whom beliefs that Ribi Yehoshua is the Mashiakh (Messiah) and wants to become grafted into Israel are outlined in the Netzarim-website – read in the “non-Jews”-section.
