As usual Rabbi was boarding a plane off to Columbia, South America this time. I asked, "Did Rashi or Rambam" teach on the subject? His reply was "Your looking at the wrong commentators!" He then directed me to the Ahavat Ammi app whereby he has taught on this very subject. In any event I understood when he said wrong commentators. Their are many rabbis (of blessed memory) who taught a great deal about Messiah Yeshua connecting the biblical narrative of Israel to Ben Joseph, and Ben Dawid [(or David) or the first coming of Messiah and the second coming of Messiah]
We listened to Professor Skip Moen's presentation (again) on "The Formation of the Christian Church" Recommend strongly that you order this and consider the information Click Here. I remember the first time that I listened to this I started crying, literally. It was the first time that I heard someone actually teaching what I had been discovering on my own about "How it actually was" centuries ago.
All in all, I see the "Hand of GOD" doing what he always does. He is placing into this earth an opportunity for all of us once again to return to what he is doing. He is restoring the identity of a people and preparing to move many out of Egypt. I see this with a clarity unparalleled!
So many people around the globe are teaching the ancient truths about Israel and her relationship to God. So many people are excavating hidden, lost or replaced concepts that God poured into the nation of Israel. So many of us are discovering or rediscovering what many, many sages of Israel taught for centuries or stopped teaching for centuries due to the oppression of antisemitism.
For me, my heart's cry is for people to ask a different question, to even know what a different question is, and to see the difference between the gods of Greek and Roman religious theology verse the God of Israel. Until this happens most cannot see the chains tethered still to Babel, to Persia, to Greek, and to Rome....
The ancient Israelites did not know for well over 200 years freedom while enslaved to Pharaoh.
The Bible is a record of the Great King and all that is his to rule. More aptly but, certainly no less significant the WORD teaches us the ways of the Creator and all that is created by him. He is Ruler of everything and he governs everything. Our concepts are based on falling out of relationship with our King. Israel is how the King chose to reveal who he is and how he does everything. It really is quite simple to comprehend when GREAT DECEPTION is overcome by those seeking GOD through Israel or the Kingdom of GOD being restored to Israel. The template for such a relationship is....marriage!
The governance of creation which includes judgments, edicts, and blessings from the King has not ceased. We just see his presence darkly because of the antisemitic hatred by which we treat, the bride or....Israel.
1st Kings 22:23 "So now the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you."
2 Thessalonians 2:11 Because of this, God sent them the activity of delusion that they would believe lies.
The strength of GREAT DECEPTION is antisemitism!
