But we know that the Torah is good, if one uses it lawfully, knowing this, that the Torah is not laid down for a righteous person, but for the lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers (1 Timothy 1:8-9, PME).
For Messiah is the goal of the Torah for righteousness to everyone who believes (Romans 10:4, PME).
If I speak with the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal (1 Corinthians 13:1, PME) The moderate inclusive language of the PME, following other versions (like the NRSV), better captures the intention of 1 Corinthians 13:1: “If I speak in … Read more 1 Corinthians 13:1 – PME Point
“All things are permissible for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are permissible for me,” but I will not be controlled by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12, PME) A version like the 1995 NASU has, “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, … Read more 1 Corinthians 6:12 – PME Point
Surprises will be thrust upon the Messianic movement in the 2020s that has not adequately prepared itself for. Thank you for joining with Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics, as we bring stability and reason to our faith community!
Torah In the Balance, Volume II is a book which recognizes that the Torah does regulate many physical actions to be performed by God’s people. Faith in the Lord is hardly just a series of abstract mental beliefs or doctrines; it is also something which is to be demonstrated in concrete works. But when we consider the importance of external works as a manifestation of our trust in Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), what is some of the variance seen in on-the-ground Messianic settings?
The New Testament Validates Torah is a study that all Messianic Believers need, especially in the current season of considerable growth and expansion in which our broad faith community finds itself. On the whole, today’s Messianic movement holds that the Torah or the Law of Moses remains valid instruction for God’s people, and that Yeshua … Read more The New Testament Validates Torah – paperback
The Messianic Torah Helper is a valuable compilation of articles and analyses designed to assist you, your family, and your friends in approaching those important areas of the Torah which need to be considered.
The Messianic Sabbath Helper includes a wide breadth of material, addressing a wide array of topics associated with Shabbat. This publication has been divided up into two main parts: The Significance of Shabbat and A Theology of Shabbat. You will be able to detect a progression of sorts, in our family’s own approach to the subject matter, as some things are addressed first more generally and then more specifically. In our experience, we ourselves have certainly had to move from a more elementary view of the issue of the seventh-day Sabbath, to a more developed view, and we recognize how the Messianic community needs to do the same.
This publication, simply entitled Moedim: The Appointed Times for Messianic Believers, is an important synopsis of what the appointed times of Leviticus 23 actually are, and why they have not been abolished by the New Testament.
Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Messiah will profit you nothing. And I testify again to every person who receives circumcision, that one is a debtor to do the whole Torah (Galatians 5:2-3, PME)
As the second decade of the Twenty-First Century ends this month, the anticipation of what the Lord is going to accomplish during the 2020s ramps up. Clearly, the connection with “VISION” is on the mind of many futuristic thinking people, since optometrists determine visual acuity by this standard of measurement. But what about those spiritually focused Believers who faithfully follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and who have received forgiveness by the blood sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah? Are their prayerful expectations of Israel’s restoration and sweeping revival valid? Or in addition, is it finally time for the children of Abraham (“for I say to you, that God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham,” Matthew 3:9b) to become the living stones referenced by the Apostle Peter (“you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Yeshua the Messiah,” 1 Peter 2:5)? Are true Believers willing, able, and ready to aggressively possess the gates of our enemies? For most assuredly, this is a sworn promise to the multitude of God’s children who currently exist on Planet Earth…
I know and am persuaded in the Lord Yeshua, that nothing is common in itself; but to him who thinks anything to be common, to him it is common (Romans 14:14, PME)
Paul, an apostle of Messiah Yeshua by the will of God, to the holy ones who are also faithful in Messiah Yeshua (Ephesians 1:1, PME)
But certain ones of the sect of the Pharisees who had believed, stood up, saying, “It is necessary to circumcise them, and to order them to observe the Torah of Moses” (Acts 15:5, PME)
who, existing in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited (Philippians 2:6, PME)
Therefore let no one judge you in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival day or a new moon or Sabbaths—things which are a shadow of the things to come; and the substance is of Messiah (Colossians 2:16-17, PME)
But she will be saved through the Child-Bearing, if they continue in faith and love and sanctification with sensibility (1 Timothy 2:15, PME)
For we know that if the Earthly house of our tent is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens. For indeed in this we groan, longing to be further clothed with our dwelling from Heaven; inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened, not that we want to be unclothed but that we want to be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life (2 Corinthians 5:1-4, PME)
Then Yeshua said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his wooden scaffold, and follow Me (Matthew 16:24, PME)
looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Yeshua the Messiah (Titus 2:13, PME)
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will rebuild My assembly and the gates of Sheol will not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18, PME)
In His saying, “A new service,” he has made the first old. But that which is becoming old and ageing is close to vanish away (Hebrews 8:13, PME)
For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was loosening the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.” (John 5:18, PME)
