Sid: Don’t you stop listening to the radio I’m about ready to tell you the truth about the Sabbath. Is it a requirement to worship on Saturday verses Sunday? I’m about ready to tell the truth about the Biblical Festivals. I’m about ready to tell you the truth about Jewish roots. Lord, I need a miracle to this and even doing it in such a short period of time, but God I’m a spirit I live in a body and I have a soul and I know that all things are possible.”   We were talking about what would it be like if Jesus came to the United States of America now in the 21st Century for the first time and you had no teaching of any kind, no Bible school, no pastors, all you had was the written word of God and the belief that Jesus was the Messiah. You were so excited that you couldn’t keep quiet. You want to tell everyone every where the good news. And you’re telling them and their getting healed, you’re praying for the sick and it’s the most exciting time of your life and then someone walks up to you and says “We don’t worship on Saturday any more, we don’t observe the Passover any more, we don’t observe Yom Kippur anymore.” And you take the book and you don’t take the tradition you take the book. And you look at Leviticus the 23rd chapter and you say “Well, let’s find out.” Now I’ve read Galatians and we know that doing the Old Covenant law has nothing to do with salvation, nothing to do with righteousness, we know that but what about these Feasts? Why does it say to observe them forever? And if you study the 23rd chapter of the book of Leviticus we’re told to do it forever. Why does it say one of the commandments is “Honor the Sabbath” and we know that the Sabbath was Saturday? So why do we say that all of the commandments are literal I mean we’re making such a deal over the commandments being taken away from us so why do we pick one to be spiritual and all of the others to be literal? I mean these are fair questions, these are honest questions. The answer is found in the second verse of Leviticus the 3rd chapter. It says “Speak to the children of Israel and say to them the Feasts… (Or the Moed that means the appointed times; you see when you have an appointment God shows up.) The appointed times of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations (And in the Hebrew the word convocation means rehearsal) these are My Feasts.” So let me read it to you with the understanding of Feasts in Hebrew mean appointed times. And convocations in Hebrew means rehearsals. “Speak to the children of Israel and say to them the appointments of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy rehearsals, these are My appointments.” Now I don’t know about you but I want to go to God’s appointments. It does it have anything to do with my salvation? No, but what does it have to do with? Colossians the 3rd chapter says “They’re shadows of things to come. Did you know that every major event of the life of Yeshua occurred during a major festival? Did you know that everything about the gospel is encrypted in code in everyone of these Feasts? Did you know that everything about the future is in the these Feasts, did you know that God says I promise to show up. He says on these specific dates. So here’s my spin, don’t get legalistic a lot of people that are getting into the Jewish roots movement are getting into what known as Rabbinical Judaism. Give me a break this just came out in the Babylonian captivity in response to rejecting Jesus. Why would I want to follow that? I want to follow scriptural Judaism. And the word Judaism it’s not that I want to be Jewish and I am the word Judaism means a worshiper of God. Everyone should want to be a worshiper of God, everyone should want to go to the God appointments, every one should want to see the rehearsals of what will happen in the future. I think that one of the greatest blessings that the church has been robbed of is rejecting their Jewish roots. And a lot of Christians have rejected the Jewish roots movement because a lot of the Jewish roots movement have moved into legalism and righteousness through doing these works. No, no no God’s called you to freedom. Some of you that are listening to me right now that are in the Jewish root movement that have gotten into legalism do you remember how free you were when you became a believer in Messiah you were like Lazarus. And Jesus said “Take the grave clothes off of them.” Well, I say take your grave clothes off and be free, but how in the world will we provoke the Jewish people to jealousy? That’s why God is raising up the restoration of the Jewish roots right now to provoke Jewish people to jealousy? Why? So that the great Jewish harvest can occur so that the tabernacle or the family of David can be restored so that the rest of the Gentiles can come in so that Jesus can return. You get it that’s why the devils causing this big problem in Israel and trying to cause the world to become anti-Jewish. But it’s so orchestrated that way so that all of the junk that he’s done for 2000 years to cause good Jewish people to believe that Christians are our enemies. This is going to be the Christians greatest hour, this is going to be the time in which true Christians are going to stand up for the Jew in Israel and if you don’t stand up for the Jew in Israel I tell you first the devil is going after the Jews and then he’s going to go after the Christians. Why do I say this, he always has and he always will he’s going after God’s chosen people. And I meet a lot of Christians and I have to correct them “I wish I was Jewish.” Well, don’t you know that you are who God made you! Don’t listen to this nonsense of 2 house theology where the Jews come from the tribe of Judah and the Gentile Christians come from Ephraim and these 2 are coming together and yes that’s true as an allegory but literally it’s not true. You see if there was no Gentile Christian there would be no Body of Messiah. Be who God has called you to be free, remember your first love go back to your first love. But I’ll tell you something, we need culture. Now what is going to fulfill Roman’s 11:11better? Romans 11:11 says “Salvation has come to the Gentile to provoke the Jew to jealousy?” What will provoke the Jew to jealousy? Having a Rabbinic Passover Seder, having a Gentilized Easter with bunnies, having Christmas with all of the gifts and the trees and the lights? I mean what’s really going to provoke Jewish people to jealousy? I’ll tell you what when Jews and Christians get together celebrate these times that they have faith that God’s going to show up, these appointed Feasts. That these Feasts are rehearsals of what’s about to ready to happen in the future, where miracles are going to breakout, where it’s not the same old same old. And by the way going back to the way the church is going to be restored these house churches will be different every service. I mean the highlight of your week will be being there. And you won’t just be a bless me club anymore and you won’t be a one man show. God will give one person a prophesy and another person a word of knowledge and someone will have a spiritual psalm or a hymn. It’s going to be and the presence of God it’s going to be so manifest people are going to be… I know it sounds strange but in our prayer meeting right here in Messianic Vision we have a staff member that literally gets glued to her chair. God’s going to do strange signs and wonders, one of our representatives just got back from St. Petersburg Russia and he said to me that God is doing wonders. Someone had surgery and the scar just totally disappeared supernaturally. That’s called a sign and a wonder the most exciting days are ahead for us. But I want you start …to take a step, take a step before you run. Now listen God’s going to figure this all but please, please, please don’t form a denomination called One New Man. I mean you can say that, you can call it that as a move of God but the thing that will make this different is that it won’t be cookie cutter. Everything, every house church will be a little different and every meeting will be a little different. The thing that will make it unique is God will be in control, it’ll be God pleasing verses man pleasing. The wine skin is about ready to be changed to contain the new wine that’s about ready to be poured out. Listen I’m wound up as you can tell but my time is up…
