Jeff, "Do You Hate Your Race?"

Ahavah or LOVE 
(Hebrew for Christians)

My LORD, My SAVIOR was an Israeli. He knows exactly why and what he is doing. I want to know him, his covenants and what being adopted into his country, his people is all about.

The following verses are very simple to comprehend. Their is no need to theologically opine, dissect, scrutinize, theorize, transliterate, translate or examine further. The simplicity is realized just in the reading of the text.

One does not need to acclimate any one of the following verses to national origin, race, ancestral lineage, heritage, or denomination. These verses do not support racism, bigotry, antisemitism, un-forgiveness, malice, rage, hatred or abuse. When Moses dispatched to the people who were held captive Kingdom Law according to Almighty God he did so due to the standard of the God of creation and not that of the Pharaoh of Egypt!

Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

When the Jewish men who were chosen to follow the Messiah revisited the verse above it was not a knew concept to them but rather a reminder, a restoration and, in deed, a physical pronouncement! (Not from the writings of Moses but, from the mouth of Messiah himself 1500 years later.)

Matthew 22:39 And the second which is like it is, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
Mark 12:31 “And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Luke 10:26-27 But Yeshua said to him, “How is it written in the law? How do you read it? And answering, he said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind' and Your neighbor as yourself."
John 13:34 I give a new commandment to you: Love one another; just as I have loved you, you should also love one another.
Romans 13:10 Love does not commit evil against its neighbor, because love is the fulfillment of The Written Law.
Galatians 5:14 For all of The Written Law is fulfilled in one saying, by this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
James 2:8 And if you fulfill The Written Law of God in this, as it is written: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”, you are doing well.

My blog is all about "Un-Coloring" ourselves from the lies that we have inherited that cause us to not practice what our Creator placed into his Book of Law which support His Kingdom or "Thy Kingdom Come."
So when faced with those who believe I have chosen against my race, including family members who have asked, "Jeff, do you hate your race" or "Jeff, are you ashamed of your race?" I understand how far away from the simplicity of following the commandments of our creator these people are, including relatives. I do not get angry or harbor animosity for them. I simply understand that not following or even knowing God's laws is not a part of the psychology in their question(s) Injustice, pain, historical abuse, and sin (1st John 3:4) are the source of racial ties and skin color rather than Kingdom identification with God.

1 John 3:4 Everyone who commits sin also breaks the law; sin is the breaking of law.

My eyes, my life, my soul, and my spirit are set on the promises of a Holy God. Our Creator has not practiced racism, bigotry, or antisemitism. Nor will he allow it when the final restoration of all things occurs. We are the ones lost to Kingdom authority.....With all due respect, I am trying to live separated from what we have done because, what He has done, has instituted for his Kingdom, and continues to prepare,..... is eternal. God is preparing eternal life not correcting behavior. He gave to us his law and left the choice up to us to follow or not to follow.
Racism, Bigotry and 
Antisemitism are destructive.
Why on earth would I follow skin color and racial identification based on what was created from dust against the very reason why we were created from dust?

Luke 5:10 Likewise also Yaqob and Yohannan, sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Shimeon, but Yeshua said to Shimeon, “Do not be afraid; from now on, you will be catching men for salvation.”
Matthew 4:19 And Yeshua said to them, “Come after me, and I shall make you to become fishers of men.”
How does one accomplish this with Racism, Bigotry and Antisemitism?
Jeremiah 16:19 O LORD, my strength, and my stronghold, And my refuge, in the day of affliction, Unto Thee shall the nations come From the ends of the earth, and shall say: 'Our fathers have inherited nought but lies, Vanity and things wherein there is no profit.

Suppose for a nano second that the Jews killed Jesus....are you holding a grudge? Since we know that it was not the Jews who killed Jesus what is the foundation of your grudge? Black folks enslaved blacks folks so what is the foundation of your racism? White people abuse and murder white people so what is the foundation of your bigotry? We all know what the failures of Israel. He who is without sin, what?
