Refuting Deceptions Of The Anti-Missionary Movement
I have been experiencing a problem in the Body of Messiah as of late, it is an Ancient Old problem we have been facing for 2000 years that has resurfaced in these last days. While we are being accused of “Judaizing” for teaching the Torah/Law of YHVH, there is a real threat to the Body, what the Apostle Paul called the “circumcision party”.
Many of these people come from Christianity, and fall into the traps of Anti-Missionaries, “Rabbis and Scholars” who have made it their life’s work to discredit the identity of Yeshua/Jesus by using their “Hebraic” interpretations to the Hebrew Scriptures called the TaNaK (Old Testament). They use very good Hermeneutics that are also ancient and very essential to interpret the scriptures called PaRDeS. This is an acronym for 4 levels of interpretation. Every scripture has 4 depths it can be interpreted at, this concept is explained in the link below.
What these Anti-Missionaries will do is show you so called “contradictions” in the TaNaK(Torah, Prophets, Writings) to try and disprove Yeshua as Messiah. But, what they will not do, is acknowledge the hundreds and thousands of witnesses found in the TaNaK witnessing of Yeshua by using their own Hermeneutical process of interpretations. Nor will they give you the true History of their so called “Infallible” Hebrew texts that unfortunately, most English Bibles are translated from. Has anyone ever wondered exactly how the Holy and Set Apart name of YHVH was removed from the Scriptures? Did you know it was Prophesied to happen? Did you know that in our current Canon represented in MOST English translations, there is a statement made by Matthew that it says fulfills Prophecy, yet can be found nowhere in the Scriptures?
Mat 2:21 So Joseph got up and took the child and his mother and went into the land of Israel.
Mat 2:22 But when he heard that Archelaus was ruling over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he left for the region of Galilee
Mat 2:23 and came and settled in a town called Nazareth in order to fulfill what was said by the prophets: “He will be called a NAZARENE.”
Nowhere in the scriptures outside of Matthew is this written. So, my question to the body is this – how will you answer this question? How will you defend the Gospel when an Anti-Missionary, or a Jewish man searching for Yeshua approaches you with this scripture? There is an answer, and it will be addressed in the next few Articles that I am currently writing. But, for now I’m only showing that without knowledge, the Ministers who encounter these Anti-Missionaries, as well as Truth Searching Jews, will not be able to answer. Causing the minister to be a stumbling block to the very people we are trying to bring Salvation to through Yeshua.
There are entirely too many “Teachers, Rabbis, Pastors, Bishops, Deacons” that have absolutely no idea how to answer the many tough questions presented by a knowledgeable Jewish person, or a very deceitful Minister of Satan. There is a Great book that I ran across a year or so ago that helps answer many of these hard questions. It exposes the so called “infallibility” of the Hebrew Masoretic Texts that most English translations derive from. It also explains the History of the different sets of scriptures that have been written over the years. It also gives very good counsel on how to handle Anti-Missionaries that have one goal, to lead people away from Yeshua/Jesus. The Book can be downloaded in the link below.
Thank you to Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky for sharing this great work. Now with all that said, I would like to remind you of the words of the Prophet Hosea.
Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
As well as the words of the Apostle Paul.
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Shalom to all, YaShem Yeshua, Amein!
