Micah 5:7… “And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples (nations) as dew from YAHWEH, as showers on a blade of grass, which does not wait for man, nor delay for the sons of men.” “ And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations, in the midst of peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep”…Deuteronomy 28:64… “And YAHWEH shall scatter you among all people, from one end of the earth even to the other, and you shall serve other elohims (gods) there, wood and stone, which you have not known, nor your fathers. And among these nations you shall find no ease, nor shall the sole of your foot have rest. But YAHWEH shall give you there a trembling heart and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind.” “Yet YAHWEH has not given to you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, UNTIL THIS DAY! Isaiah 63:16, “For You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us, and Israel does not acknowledge us; You YAHWEH, are our Father, our Kinsmen-Redeemer…HalleluYAH!” (HRB) Emphasis mine.
Have you noticed that there are still some who are being restored to Torah (those who keep the commandments of YAHWEH, Shabbat, Feast Days, etc.) and the testimony of Yeshua, who are still angry with the “Church” for feeling as if they have not been told the ‘whole’ truth regarding the Scriptures according to YAHWEH?
I am not saying the church is doing much better, we all have our faults, but my question is this: According to the Scriptures, do you think there has been a ‘scattering’ of Israelites among the nations? Could this “scattering among the nations” have been the work of YAHWEH? The Scriptures tell us it is. If our answer is yes and we understand this, then why are so many still in an uproar? Hasn’t Elohim always used people and circumstances to accomplish His Will? What about Pharaoh, Moshe, Elijah, Isaiah, Gideon, Judas? I could go on and on, so could you. Do you know Scripture tells us the Jews have been blinded for a time, and the gentiles only see dimly (spiritually)? This is the work of YAHWEH! The Word tells us it is He who blinds or opens eyes and who causes ears to hear or gives a deaf ear, it is He who gives hearts of understanding or causes them to be dull! Why the scattering of the Tribes into the ‘nations’? For disobedience to His Torah, His instructions.
But rejoice, we are in a time of Restoration! I awoke this morning thinking about this and I heard in my spirit … “you (those scattered) who once were afar off, have NOW been brought near.” HalleluYAH! Ephesians 2:13…”But NOW in Messiah Yeshua who are far off are brought near by the blood of Messiah.. For He is our shalom (peace), who has made both one (echad) in Hebrew…Jew and Gentile), and has broken down the wall of separation between them”! These were primarily Israelites whom Rav Shaul (Paul) was writing to and because they were so long outside of the land of Israel and without the covenant promises in their Diaspora, according to the oral rabbinical law these Israelites were now being considered gentiles. It is Messiah who is to unite the Northern House of Israel, called the house of Ephraim in scripture, back with the southern House of Judah and make one nation again at His return (Ezek 37:15-28). We are in the time of restoration when we are being called back and in preparation, but this is not for us to boast or brag about, but rather is a time of humility and moving forward without bitterness or hatred in our hearts. We have returned to Torah, to move into His future plan! That’s what we should be rejoicing in rather than spending so much energy on anger at feeling cheated. It only hurts us. This “wall of separation” was a literal separation wall at the temple or sanctuary of YHWH, that separated the Jews from the gentiles. Due to The House of Israel being so long in Diaspora they had to stay on the other side of the outer wall in the court of the gentiles.
It’s “for such a time as this” that the wall is beginning to break down! His people cannot be a “light” to the nations where they are scattered if they are full of darkness and continue to erect that wall! They must be obedient and stay focused on the job YAHWEH has called them to, NOW…
Again, anger, bitterness and hatred must not be found in our hearts ...we must not continue to build the wall of separation, when He is trying to tear it down!
We must walk in His Truth and we must walk in love. If we have not love for one another, we are but a sounding gong…
Shalom rav! Abundant peace!
With the love of Yeshua Messiah, Sharon
