Hi! We know, we know! If you get two Messianics together you’ll end up with three opinions. Maybe that’s something to do with Yeshua’s definition of a Messianic minyan – “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am in the midst of them.” Its almost certainly to do with our Hebraic roots!
What I’m trying to say is that we can’t hope to fully represent every person who claims to be Messianic – and that’s no problem. But what we do hope is that we can help the Messianic community in the British Isle develop into all that G-d desires for it.
Some congregations see their job as providing a place of refuge where Jewish people can learn about their promised Messiah, Yeshua. Others just want to have the warm, fluffy feeling that “Jewishness” seems to bring for them. Others, in their desire to be more obedient to their Saviour & Lord and His Word, have found this means they begin to look “Jewish” to many of their friends.
Really, its the latter of these three that most closely describes us. Yes, we do believe that our assembling together will be recognisable in some ways to our Jewish brethren. Yet, there will be differences that will cause them to question us. And that’s where we can introduce Yeshua and full obedience to the Tenach, G-d’s Word.
We believe that true Messianic life and worship will not necessarily match up with what the Rabbis have taught. Why is that? Because the Rabbis have allowed the introduction into Judaism of many things that G-d has forbidden in His Word. (And remember, as a whole, the Rabbis have sought quite deliberately, to hide their Messiah from the Jewish people!) We have a choice to make, are we going to enjy a warm, fluffy feeling or are we going to be obedient to G-d through His revealed Word?
