Jewish Protesters Assault Messianic Believers, Christians: 'Some Were Cut in the Face'

Thursday, June 6, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , ,

(Worthy News) - Dozens of Jewish protestors recently attacked Messianic believers headed to a Hebrew worship concert in Jerusalem. It’s the latest example of the hostility of certain orthodox Jews against the Messianic community.

“Thirty to 40 religious men had gathered and they started harassing our people as they were trying to enter into worship – blowing whistles, trying to drown out the sound of worship and that alerted the first wave of the SWAT team and the police that came out,” said Chad Holland, Senior Pastor of King of Kings Community Jerusalem (KKCJ).

“They started by screaming, pushing. Several people were hit; some were cut in the face. They broke glass. They damaged property. They were kicking. They were hitting. They were cornering people. They pushed several up against the wall. They pushed down several women as well. They threw water bottles. They spit on a lot of people and in the end, they started spraying pepper spray,” Holland said. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]

  1. Actually, we, so far, we see this kind of abuse only among Jews, on Messianics.

    This is, directly, a result of Maimonides and his 613 Commandments. Specifically it has to do with his rule (commandment/mitzvot) #38. "Not to cease hating the missionary."

    Let's have a look at that. He gets that from Deut 13:6-11, Where God has said to us, through Moshe, I've used a NKJV for this, 6. "If your brother, the son of your mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, 7. of the gods of the people which are all around you, near to you or far off from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth, 8. you shall not consent to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him or conceal him; 9. but you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. 10. And you shall stone him with stones until he dies, because he sought to entice you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 11. So all Israel shall hear and fear, and not again do such wickedness as this among you."

    Maimonides (Rambam) lists his interpretation of this passage (and others) into his Commandment #38, which states "Not to cease hating the missionary." First of all, to boil down a whole passage from God, into 6 words (in English, forgive me, but this is an English speaking audience) is a bit disrespectful to God's Word, Torah. What if the so-called "missionary" decides to end proselytizing you? Can you stop hating his/her/them then? And abusing someone is not the same as hating them, though the two have distinct similarities. Also, this is speaking to an Israel (as a nation) that follows Torah, not a State of Israel that, instead, does things like allowing a Pride Parade to march down the street in Jerusalem. The hater hardly has the support of law enforcement on their side when they decide that those who adhere to Jesus (Y'shua) are, in fact, idolaters.

    We can say (with much proof) that it is, in fact, Rambam who is being so idolized that his words, his teachings, his views, have replaced God's own Word (Torah) to the Ultra, and Orthodox and even many Messianic Jews.

    Here is where it is important to place God's Word above the word of men, even men who are of real genius. No man can compete with God's Word, but the literal Word of God come in the flesh, Y'shua HaMashiach.

    So, how long have Hebrews (those who have Abraham for their father) been allowed to worship and adore, and value God's Word to them as God, Himself? Which Jew got in trouble from their own God for worshiping His Word, Torah, as God? When was that? When did Israel get disciplined for worshiping and adoring Torah as God's Word, as He, Himself? When did that ever happen? Give us an example.

    This is why it is so important that Messianics grow beyond Rambam and his 613 Commandments. Because when does our God ever teach us to "not cease hating" anyone? It is understandable that Jews who do not yet understand that Y'shua was in fact the Jewish Messiah and not a god, but God's own Word. However, every Torah student (talmidum) knows that in every Torah scroll, not having idols is one of the most important features and it is included very high up in all the Commandments (Mitvot). And yet, talmidum after talmidum, after talmidum, worship, and adore, the writings and teachings of Maimonides over God's.

    There can only be One God (and "Allah" is not His name). Remember the times, during the Judges, when the people of Israel had no king? Their God was their King, and His Word their Ruler. But the people insisted they needed a human man to be king over them. And again, the God of all Israel warned them what awful things would happen if He did that for them. But in the end, they kept asking for a human king (they wanted to look as fine and formidable as their neighbors), so He gave to them Saul, who failed them, and who also persecuted the next (righteous) king of Israel, David. And David turned out to be a man after God's own heart. Though he was not the only good king to come. But David pointed to a "son" of his, whom the very same God of Israel had promised to him, would sit on his Throne.

    This is why Jesus (Y'shua) is identified later also as "son of David."

    It is not idolatry to accept a human man that God created from His own Word, who is Torah Incarnate. For us to worship and adore just as thousands of Jews have done already. Our God had promised way back to Adam and Eve, this thing would happen, and come. And so he has. He came humble. He came royal. We all know it was promised to come through a virgin and so her espoused husband accepted her though he had not known her as wife yet.

    When we, anyone really, puts some other man up on such a pedestal as has been done with and to Rambam, great errors come. It is true Rambam rarely made errors. However, human, he was. God did not give us or "the Jews," 613 separate Commandments.

    And Maimonides is not His Name.

  2. We should not be supprice that this part of fulfillment of our lord Jesus Christ which say in the world we have trouble but we should have courage He has overcome the world.
    If they Him they have to hate us also.

  3. Tares sewn in with the wheat... wolves in sheep's clothing. God's word teaches us there are Jews who are NOT Jews and Christians who are NOT Christians. Satan's kennites.. weeds or tares sewn in with wheat. Like Pharisee and Sadducess. Even before and after WWII Nazi's posed as Jews and Christians to spy and after losing war to avoid trials. God knows HIS children. All that choose Satan will be judged accordingly to God's will.
    Orthodox JEWS following God's word would not be attacking MESSIANIC JEWS or CHRISTIANS

    • This is about Orthodox Jews abusing Messianic Jews. Neither is pretending to be anything other than what they are identifying themselves as. Jesus's (Y'shua's) parable about the tares or the wolves in sheep's clothing is a very important lesson. However, Sirch and Robert are both correct in their responses to this. It's about how Y'shua (Jesus) told us it would be this way. The Messianic Jews who first converted in Israel, before the ones who lead now (as in, their parents generation, or even worse, their grandparents there) lived through much worse. Many of them then had to give up parents and even children because of accepting Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. I'm not saying it's easy for any Jew to live for Messiah in Israel today, but Jesus foretold us it would be so. He also told us that if they abused and killed him, if they do it when the tree (the movement) is green (new), we, none of us, should be surprised they do it when the movement (of Messiah) is now old. This is a different lesson.

      This is not happening because of human equivalent of wolves, or a tare. It is happening because some Jews worship the words and records of Rambam (Maimonides) far more than they worship and adore God's own Word. Instead of seeking the All Powerful One, the Creator of the universe, they seek the opinion of men, the approval of men. And Rambam taught them all, still teaches them, to "never stop hating the missionary" even though that's not what, or how, the God of Moshe (Moses) told us.

      If there was ever a time that Jews needed their Messiah, it is now.

      Y'shua never lies. Jesus is Alive.

      He is God's (only) unadulterated Word.

    • Do you not know our Y'shua?

      He tells us, told us, we (his talmidum/followers) that it would be this way.

      We, some of us, have lost parents, children, siblings, jobs, homes, lands, jewelry, riches, friends, some of us have lost all those things, and more, to hold fast to the same God that Avraham (and Sarah) had. Faith, as it pertains to God, means to trust. To trust Jesus, is to put place "faith" in him. The same is true of the God of Moshe, and of David, and Hanna, and Miriam, and...each one of them trusted their God, and it was the One True God. The only real God whom they trusted. A good example of trust being faith, is the difference between one of Y'shua's apostles named Judas who betrayed him, to his dead, and another of Messiah's apostles named Peter (in English). Both betrayed Jesus. One committed suicide and "went to perdition" (hell, or more correctly, Sheol). The other was forgiven, by Y'shua, personally. Messiah appeared to Peter after he rose from that grave, and why? Why would Jesus forgive Peter but not Judas? Because Peter trusted in the God of his fathers, the Holy One of Israel, to not only be able to forgive him, but that He just might. So, Peter didn't give up and kill himself. He waited to see what God's answer to Peter's faith would be. And Y'shua (Jesus) came walking up to him, risen. Judas didn't believe that either Jesus or the God of his fathers, the Holy One of Israel, could or would forgive him.

      Then, because Peter was still humble now about himself, he was used on Shavuot (Pentecost) to preach publicly and some 5,000 were added to the new sect of Judaism, the Way (of the) Nazarene. Christians are what the first pagans who likewise accepted the Jewish Messiah (Jesus) were called, in Antioch, not Jews. Jews were called the people of "the way" or "Nazarenes." Only don't get that confused with a Protestant denomination that uses either of those names.

      Didn't Avraham and Sarah lose much to gain eternal life? Didn't they wander too? And Moshe, look at all he left behind in Egypt to go to where he would meet a priest of the most high and learn to worship and follow Him. Hanna, she gave up her firstborn son, the one most valuable to her.

      There is a saying, not a Bible proverb but a good saying anyway. "He is no fool who gives up what he can not keep, to gain what he can not lose." When we hold fast to Jesus, he is always Faithful to hold onto us. For our faith is human, it fails at times. We are not always free of doubts. So, having the One at the other end, holding our faith to be Faithful without fail, is extremely important. There are only two destinations, heaven or hell. Hell really isn't a viable option. It's hell.

  4. Revelation 2:9, 3:9

    They don’t fit all the prophecies of Scripture... If they were the real Chosen, The Scriptures SAID THAT WHEN THEY RETURN THERE WILL BE 👉🏽PEACE👈🏽 IN THE LAND.
    These were NOT taken recipients of a supernatural return as prophesied IN SCRIPTURE but, by other nations (Man) through the Balfour Agreement.
    The Most High cannot lie.
    It has been a STRONG DELUSION (never just believe something just because the masses do).

  5. This is a sign that Isa.17:4-11, is very near. This 42 month period that ends at the Rapture is a time of darkness (or wickedness) when believers in Christ are expected to trim their lamp (or live above hypocrisy).

  6. It's been "soon" since Y'shua rose back into heaven. Everything has been like the day the Sun stood still for Joshua, appointed leader, following Moses' death, since Jesus rose from that grave.

    Things are heating up, though, you are right about that.

    Still, every tribe and tongue has not yet heard the "good news" of "Jesus" preached to them, in their own language. And since Revelations tells us that angels will go out with the living gospel, end times, it may be that we humans will fail to reach them all, anyhow. Or perhaps like with some of our new brethren coming in from Islam, Jesus is appearing in their dreams, telling them himself. Or angels doing it, since they so hark what angels tell them.

    Though, this time, when the bridegroom comes for me, I intend to go with him. Let the foolish stay, with foolish excuses, I don't want to be among them. And really, since those who have "fallen asleep" already (aka died) will be caught up with those alive when he comes, the only ones who don't go up in the Rapture (whenever it is) are those who have not yet then chosen to trust Jesus (Y'shua) as Alive and God's only begotten Son, His Word made Incarnate.

    Skip the 42 month countdown, and from what date? and debates about pre, mid, post, tribulation doctrines. Jesus gave us what we need to know about it already. It's the parable of the wise and foolish virgins.

    Isaiah 17 is "a prophecy against Damascus" (that's literally, verse 1, of it). You can't just pick out Verses 4-11 of it and tell us it has something to do with a 42 month countdown.

    Trim my lamp? I use candles, so not sure what you mean by that. Or how it pertains to hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is a Greek word. Wuest translates it, fully, into English meaning, by the phrase "actors acting as on a stage." Which reminds us all not to be performing artists anywhere, to be seen. It's also why European aristocracy used to hate being connected with any actors. So much for that insight, then. That is what Jesus rebuked some Pharisees for, when he called them white-washed tombs. Lookin good on the outside and dead man's bones on the inside. Doing all for to be seen.

    So, how does wick tending increase or decrease hypocrisy? I believe the parable was about oil, not trimming wicks, or not. We gotta be full of the Holy Spirit and too many of those people who proudly tell us they are "full of the spirit" sure are. They just don't offer up the names of all those spirits they be full of. However, it's the Holy Spirit, of the One True God, (whose name is not Allah) whom we all need to be topped up on.

    Maybe, writing this is a sincere attempt to help Believer's who might never else get honest input from someone who's not being paid anything to do it for them. There's being a hypocrite and being so scared someone will call us a "hypocrite" that we never do a decent good deed. And more than that, there's real attempts trying to reach the one that doesn't know Jesus yet. We wouldn't want them wandering into just any old church, anymore, these days. Ugly things be happening to newbies in churches now.
