The Gospel According to Torah 

 


OIM is a Messianic educational ministry, which has been commissioned to reach, teach, encourage, and disciple those within the Commonwealth of Israel to return wholly to Him in spirit, soul, and body in the work of advancing His Kingdom until the Messianic restoration of all things.



AUGUST 2015


This past month I have been processing a number of thoughts about the transformational changes which are taking place in the country where I reside, the United States. After all, the paradigm shift that took place in the spiritual realm with the Supreme Court decision on marriage, falling on the heels of the senseless murders in Charleston, South Carolina, and then followed by the revelations about infant body parts being harvested for sale—are all indications that our Judeo-Christian culture is, at best, on life support. The litmus tests on where one stands on basic principles, like pro-life or pro-choice, or what constitutes a Biblically ordained marriage, could seal the fate of many, who flippantly claim to be followers of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob or “Christians.” More than once, I contemplated the warning by the Apostle Paul to the Thessalonicans, about the “deluding influence” that God will send to test those who need to discern between God’s truth and Satan’s lies:

“Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12).

The thought that God Himself would send a deluding influence haunted me, especially when I prayed for loved ones, who despite their proclamations about belief in the Messiah, are seemingly succumbing to the wiles of the Devil. My prayers turned to asking the Holy One to reveal the distinctions between what is cloaked in the darkness of freedom of choice to “love” another person regardless of gender, or dispose of fetal tissue because of the inconvenience of taking responsibility for another human being. Hence, I was reminded of another verse from Paul, where he states to the Corinthians,

“Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God” (1 Corinthians 4:5).

With that being said, in my zeal to discover reasons for why our society is failing, I was led beyond the Bible to read a few books which helped refine my understanding. One book addressed the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, where the “due process” and “equal protection under the law” clauses in Section One are cited by the majority opinions of the Supreme Court as justification for abortion and same-sex marriage. Secondly, I read a biography on William Wilberforce, who in his era and with many godly supporters, was used by the Lord to help turn Great Britain back toward righteousness. Consequently, I was inspired to write this month’s lead article entitled, Revolution Revelation,” in order to encourage God-fearing people in their respective communities, to come together to fight the flood of evil that is overwhelming our world.

We know that the saints of God are at war with unseen forces of evil: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). And we also know that as we approach the End of the Age, the Beast System according to the Book of Revelation will be more overtly at war with the people of God. Hence, we continue to seek your prayers and financial support for the Theological Defense Trust, so that our written materials can continue to help others more accurately discern the truth about what the Lord is doing at this point in time. Additionally, we continue to be inundated by requests for the Outreach Israel Prison Ministry Free Book Fund, and appreciate your willingness to partner with us to get these materials into the hands and hearts of hungry souls, who just happen to have considerable time to grow in their walk with the Messiah of Israel.

Thank you again for your contributions to these efforts, because from the feedback we are receiving from a number of sources, there is much good fruit being produced!

“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-26).

Advancing His Kingdom, until the Messianic restoration of all things!
