Messianic – Is that Good?

Anytime I meet someone who has just repented and is now wanting to learn Yehovah’s ways, which are the same ways that Yeshua (Jesus) taught, the question always comes up. “Where do I go to learn the Creator’s ways?” It is at this critical juncture that I am always compelled to warn these new believers about anything ‘Messianic.’ We would like to think that things ‘messianic’ are safe. But the term Messianic is often used as a code word for those that teach the ways of Judaism, i.e. Messianic Judaism.

For example tonight (9/10/10) the new moon was sighted in Jerusalem; and with this sighting, Yom Teruah (the Day of Shouting) and the start of Yehovah’s fall feasts. Unfortunately, too many folks who use the ‘Messianic’ label celebrated Yom Teruah two nights ago and even called it the new year. When did we disengage our brains so badly that we can call the first day of the SEVENTH month the beginning of a new year? For me this kind of irrational thinking was why I stopped spending my time in these kinds of assemblies many years ago.

In Judaism the holidays are in opposition to all of Yehovah’s holy days as observed by the sighting of the new moon each month; and it promotes many thing that are not in the Law or the Prophets. Of course Christianity, for the most part, has ignored these holy days and the rest of Yehovah’s ways all together, and instead has instituted their own holidays.

Read, read, read the Law and the Prophets and learn for yourself Yehovah’s ways. This is the very reason I developed the False Images series. Always be sure that everything that you are taught conforms with the Law and the Prophets; only they are our rock and our sure foundation.

Isaiah 8:20 says, “To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

We must all search the scriptures for ourselves. We can not get rid of our Christian lies and exchange them for those taught by Judaism, or worse yet – and what far too many do, join the two.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Elohim (God), that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to Elohim, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of Yehovah. (Rom 12:1-2)

His will is found only in Torah.

  1. Thank you Michael,
    There was so much confusion over what I was hearing in the Messianic teachings, and I DO know that God is NOT the author of confusion! I do believe that if we seek Gods TRUTH with all our hearts, that He WILL make a way for us to find it. Attitude has a great deal to do with it. Humbling ourselves is not an option. It’s a command. I have seen, and listened to many that are anything BUT humble. Each time, I was convicted that it was not the way of Yeshua. Thank you AGAIN, for bringing the truth to light.

  2. I am in total agreement with this blog, I am thankful that we never were involved in any messianic group. At first my husband thought he was the only one that believed this way. We still don’t know many but Yeshua will bring us together in His time and way, praise His name.

  3. For some of us it is a process of coming out. A stage so to speak and a time of learning. When Abba Father calls us out I believe He knows the paths we go on. If we hear His voice and continue to seek His wisdom, He will also bring us through, some faster than others. What perfect love. If it was not so, we would not have needed for Yeshua to come.

    I have shared this with 2 others.


  4. By the way, if you can edit this post (which is excellent) you might insert the date that this was written in regard to the new moon sighting. Could cause some confusion by those not familiar with that terminology & the difference in the calendars.


  5. Shalom Michael thanks for that little teaching. I dont want to be Messianic been to a couple of Messianic Congregations. Your are right. They are Messianic Judaism. When I started on this Journey I went to a Jewish Synagogue trying to find the Truth of the Father. They are pretty much the same. What is funny the Christain are no different and the Catholics and the Protestant’s. See they are all Religion’s and they have all theses tradition’s of man to control the masses. I only listen to the Father and the Ruach. Thanks for sharing. Your Brother David Skellie

  6. Whilst I consider myself Messianic (I am Jewish). However, I have left all the messianic groups because they say anyone under the law is cursed. I try to follow the teachings of YHWH, not the traditions of man.
