Haftarah Portion

These are the words Adonai spoke concerning Isra’el and Y’hudah: Here is what Adonai says:

“We have heard a cry of terror,
of fear and not of peace.
Ask now and see:
can men give birth to children?
Why, then, do I see all the men
with their hands on their stomachs like women in labor,
with every face turned pale?
How dreadful that day will be! —
there has never been one like it:
a time of trouble for Ya‘akov,
but out of it he will be saved.

“On that day,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot,
“I will break his yoke from off your neck,
I will snap your chains.
Foreigners will no longer enslave him.
Instead, they will serve Adonai their God
and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.

10 “So don’t be afraid, Ya‘akov my servant,”
says Adonai, “or be alarmed, Isra’el;
for I will return you from far away
and your offspring from their country of exile.
Ya‘akov will again be quiet, at rest;
and no one will make him afraid.

11 “For I am with you to save you,” says Adonai,
“I will finish off all the nations
where I have scattered you.
However, you I will not finish off,
but will discipline only as you deserve;
I will not completely destroy you.”

Being that Passover is only for Jews and for servants bought with silver, can we find this principle that whoever believes in Yeshua becomes Jewish, in the Torah?


No. Technically no, but I want to explain to you why not.  We are gentiles in a sense. It is like we are joined to the nation of Israel; not the Jews, but the nation of Israel. The Yehudim, they don’t represent the entire Israel. They are part of the nation.

But Yehuda is what he can be. They are ready to do the things that HaShem requests, for some reason. And Yehuda, even in the end of times, they call him in the Scriptures. They call him Israel and Yehuda together, looks like two nations. But for Him, it’s only one, the children of HaShem. These things represent the child of Abraham, like Yeshua was talking about.

And Yeshua says, if you are a child or a follower of Avraham and Moshe, you have to do the things that Avraham and Moshe did. If we’re doing the things the Torah requests, we don’t have to worry even if the Nation of Israel doesn’t recognize. They can even say that we have no soul. We don’t have to be worried because we found the Torah and also the Messiah.

And we have to celebrate this even before Yeshua shows up again. We can see it in the New Testament that people give another meaning to Pesach, but even the disciples, they were never against the Torah.

And in this particular moment, even I don’t want to be living in Israel. Not because it’s not good, this is the blessed land of HaShem. Who wouldn’t want to be there? Everybody wants to be there. But I can’t [take] them calling our Messiah that He’s homosexual or worse things that the Nation of Israel is calling Him.

One day, Jews and us, we’re going to be together and that veil, what Yeshayahu was talking about in Chapter 6, [will be taken away], and we’re going to love HaShem together with all our hearts like it is written in the Scriptures. And then the Scriptures are going to be fulfilled that all nations are going to know who is HaShem.
