the ancient Jewish Prophets know that
most people today have never found . . .
The Way Back To God
Here are 7 basic truths from the Jewish Bible:
1. God alone is the source of a satisfying and worthwhile life.
make known to me the path of life: in Thy presence is fullness of
joy; at Thy right hand are pleasures forevermore" Psalm 16:11
2. There is a barrier between God and us: sin.
LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither is
His ear heavy, so that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a
separation between you and your GOD, and your sins have hid His face
from you, that He will not hear" Isaiah 59:1-2
3. Our good deeds won’t remove the barrier.
"And we are
all as one that is unclean, and our righteousness (good deeds)
as filthy rags" Isaiah 64:6
4. God has provided atonement as a way
of removing the barrier.
The Jewish Bible teaches that only blood makes atonement, not fasting or prayer.
life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the
altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes an
atonement for the soul". Leviticus 17:11
5. God promised to send the Messiah for blood atonement.
Redeemer will come to Zion, to those who turn from transgression".
pierced for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities…
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all". Isaiah 53:5,6
6. At least 48 specific prophecies
further identify this Messianic figure,
all of which have been fulfilled in Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth.
Only Yeshua of Nazareth fulfilled all these prophecies
7. God has provided perfect atonement
(forgiveness of sins) through the sacrifice
of the Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). All who place their trust in Him have restored
fellowship with God and assurance of eternal life.
"Do homage to the Son, How blessed are all who take refuge in Him" Psalm 2:12
(All scriptures quoted are from the Jewish Bible)
There are over 200,000
Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua in the USA alone,
with thousands more in Israel and other countries. We love and cherish our
beautiful Jewish culture and heritage, and part of that heritage is God's
promise to us of a Messiah, a promise fulfilled in Yeshua.
