Time is running out waiting for the Jewish Messiah: Yeshua IS the Messiah!

Lets start off by whitewashing 1900 years of Western Church dominance. Let us also look past the systematic slaughter of the Jewish people for 2000 years (If one can look past that). We should also forget about the 1700 years of pagan influenced dogma from the early Catholic and Orthodox Churches. While we are at it; we should also dismiss the lies told from the lips of the Jewish people in regards to Yeshua for 2000 years. Also, let us forget about the slaughter of millions of other peoples around the world in the name of Christ by the corrupt Western Churches.

We could go on and on citing examples of how to reconcile true Christians of this world and the Jewish People, all in the name of Yeshua, but at the end of the day the Lord will decide who is and who is not, not man.

2000 years of murders, lies and destruction have all but burnt the bridges between the two faiths. But time is running out for the Jewish People in regards to the search for their Messiah. In fact he is already among us in Spirit and His next coming will be his last.

We have a Covenant between God and King David in regards to the Messiah (2 Samuel 7), also in 1 Chronicles 17 an expanded upon in Isaiah 42 and Isaiah 53). We will write about Isaiah 53 specifically.

Isaiah 53

1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

This is describing the Jewish savior and Messiah. No doubt about it. It is directly connected to the Covenant of GOD and King David.

First; lets look at some of these rules for the Messiah, tons of rules as dictated by the Jewish faith.

But a few stand out; first; the Messiah must support the Law or Torah. Most Jews blame Christians for denying the Torah, well most Christians do. No religious group follows the Torah to the letter but Yeshua did not disobey the Torah, he perfected it by the fulfillment of the Law. The path to salvation and forgiveness is through Yeshua, he was the perfect sacrifice to God the Father.

5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Jews only focus on the Torah. What about the "everlasting" Covenant made with King David? That is also God's Law. Obviously for the Religious Jews, in my humble opinion, it does not matter because that Law has yet to be fulfilled or even started.

Isaiah 53 is one of the most important chapters in the Bible in regards to the Messiah because it describes his humble, non military man, demeanor, clearly. A military demeanor was one characteristic that all Jews were looking for during the time of Yeshua. They thought about the conquest first and clearly did not understand Isaiah, at all. It is a mystery as to why, the religious Jews of that day, that knew Isaiah's teachings very well, would ignore it. Maybe the embarrassment of it all, we will never know.
Corruption was the root of it all, a corruption told by many in the Hebrew Bible and reported in the New Testament. Jews during the time of Yeshua were led astray by their leaders just as Christians are being led to hell via their leaders in this day and age. We are all the same in that regard.

Clearly the Messiah would not only be a conqueror of evil, and annihilate the children of wickedness, he would also be a cleanser of sins and iniquities. A path to salvation. A Lamb to the slaughter. Why on Earth did everyone look the other way 2000 years ago? Simple answer; because the WORD said it would be so and ignorance was at the center of it all, JUST as it is today. GOD the Father does not have to reason with HIMSELF, it is what it is and will be what it will be.

"for the transgression of my people was he stricken." This is the ultimate clue. How many Jews out there are looking forward to betraying your Messiah, because if you believe the WORD has yet to be fulfilled, your betrayal and killing of the Messiah has yet to be fulfilled. THE WORD says it must be so and it was so.

Isaiah 53 so thoroughly reflects the life of Yeshua on Earth and the politics of his demise. It is amazing that 2000 years of prejudice has prevented millions of Jews from finding the Messiah. We should be in a time of heavy prayer, deep prayer, and I personally must do the same. We should be in a time of reconciliation between the Christian and the Jew. But the politics of man still prohibits that from happening.

That's why I have rejected any reverence to any historical denomination. The focus of my approach to this wonderful gift from GOD, the Holy Bible, is to follow the WORD as it is written. I follow that road using my scant traces of Jewish heritage. With the p'shat as my rule and Yeshua as my guide. We pray to GOD the Father and our Lord Yeshua the Messiah!

If any conflicted person, Jewish or not, find themselves reading this article, please, read Isaiah 53 carefully and reflect a little, with an open heart. And you will feel the seed be planted, and if you continue your exploration of Yeshua, you will watch it grow.
