And I’ll tell you more. You know, my question to those who are not Jewish—what I told you in the beginning, the Gentiles, those who are not part of the Jewish people—my question to the Christian of those Gentiles, who asks me, “Why am I not a Christian?” I sometimes look at him and I say, “If you truly believed in the Messiah that the Jewish people believe in, and the one that the Jewish people originally attempted to teach to the Gentile world, then why aren’t you Jewish?”
Makes sense, doesn’t it? In other words, if you are going to believe in the Jewish concept, and a concept which, Mashiach is not only a total Jewish concept, but it embraces the entire Torah, that concept, because the Talmud by the way, that Oral Law I spoke about, the Talmud teaches us that the world was not created but only for the Mashiach, and that the prophets, all the prophets, prophesied not, but only of the days of the Mashiach. So the concept of Mashiach, Messiah, is a concept that embraces the entire creation, and a concept that embraces all prophecy from Moses, Moshe Rabbeinu, Moshe our teacher, until this very day.

So the concept of Mashiach is all-embracing. And in Jewish life, we ask then, if someone says, “I believe in the Mashiach”—let’s forget for the moment that there is a religion called “Christianity”—and a non-Jew were to come and say, “I believe in the Mashiach,” a Jew would say, “Really? Welcome to the family.” That’s the first instinctive idea. Remember, I’m thinking not in Christian terms. I can’t think in Christian terms, I don’t know Christian terms. But I can think in Jewish terms. And if I were to hear from a non-Jew, “I believe in then I would say, “Wonderful! You must also then believe in the message that G-d gave to us at Mt. Sinai. You must believe in the holy Torah. And you must also want, at least know, or if you don’t know, want to learn, how to observe that according to what we call halachah, which is the rabbinical law, rabbinical teaching of how to observe the commandments, the mitzvoths, of the Torah. You see, Mashiach goes hand in hand with that.
One cannot think Mashiach without thinking observance of Torah. Not in Judaism. One cannot think of Mashiach without recognizing that we have a link forged between the nation of Israel and Hashem, which is so unbreakable, that every word that Hashem has spoken and commanded, we are obliged to do. And not simply because, out of the goodness of our hearts we want to do it spontaneously, or we want to do it, let’s say, not because we have to. We do have to! We are commanded to do certain things. And therefore we happily take upon ourselves a discipline to observe certain ways of life that Hashem has commanded us. I am a little bit off the track, but I will come right back.
Therefore if the Jewish people claim that Yeshua is truly the “One,” and what do we claim about him, and why haven’t we been known throughout the last two thousand years of history, as being a people who have walked up and down the streets with signboards saying, “Salvation is of Yeshua”? (Burma-Shave, as they’d say in the United States.) Why don’t we say…why aren’t we salesmen? Why aren’t we salesmen? Why not? There is an answer to that question too.
You see, originally we were, and we began to really, when he appeared, speak to Gentiles wherever we could find them. We were so zealous to speak to every Gentile who was interested in coming into the Jewish family, just as so many Gentiles came out of Egypt with us in what we call an erev rav, a mixed multitude. You see, out of every exile, and into every ingathering, there is a mixed multitude, just as there is today coming from the four corners of the earth, a mixed multitude of those who come back with Hashem’s, G-d’s, people, Israel, to the land, to our G-d, to our Torah, to our way of life, to our customs, to our traditions.

And to this day, as I speak to you, the doors are still open. They may not always be, but they are until this day. Well, we tried. We tried, but because it was an unpopular message, because you see, the idea, the concept of Mashiach not only embraces Torah, but what does Torah embrace? What does that say to us? What do the prophets say to us if they prophesied not but only of the days of Mashiach? The prophets said something. They said there is going to be a day of ingathering, there is going to be a day of return, there is going to be a day when there’ll be no more exiles. There is going to be a day when I will carry you back to your land, and I will even have the nations, and the representatives of the nations, their kings, and their great men, their presidents, their leaders, their rulers carry you back to your land!

Message from BibleSearchers
BibleSearchers scans the world for information that has relevance on the time of the end. It is our prayer that this will allow the believers in the Almighty One of Israel to “watch and be ready”. Our readiness has nothing to do trying to halt the progression of evil on our planet earth. In our readiness, we seek to be prepared for the coming of the Messiah of Israel so that goodness and evil will be manifested in its fullest. Our preparation is a pathway of spiritual readiness for a world of peace. Our defender is the Lord of hosts. The time of the end suggests that the Eternal One of Israel’s intent is to close out this chapter of earth’s history so that the perpetrators of evil, those that seek power, greed and control, will be eliminated from this planet earth. The wars of the heavens are being played out on this planet earth and humans will live through it to testify of the might, power, justice and the love of the God of Israel. In a world of corruption and disinformation, we cannot always know what the historical truth is and who is promoting evil or mis-information. We cannot guarantee our sources but we will always seek to portray trends that can be validated in the Torah and the testimony of the prophets of the Old and the New Testament.
