AROUND BOISE Q & A
(From October 2023 with repostings)
If I study to conform to Jewishness to become more Jewish, like Jesus, through the Messianic Movement in Boise, will I enter Heaven?
Yet another organized religion is a blend of both Christians and Judaism. It is called Messianic Christians. Messianic focuses on blending Jesus’ Gospel with the old traditions of Jewish worship and intensive study of the Hebrew language for Hebrew “interpretations” of the Gospel. The result is adding Hebrew/Jewish FOCUS to Jesus’ Gospel. This is extremely dangerous to your soul and spirit survival for several reasons:
1. Firstly, the focus is on “Jewishness” and not on JESUS, albeit the attempt is to be about worshiping Jesus through adopting the religion of Judaism because Jesus was born into the Jewish people. An evil spirit of Error (1 John 4:6) causes these worshipers to believe that you cannot know and understand Jesus but by adapting your life into the Jewish culture.
It, truly, is a different gospel, a perversion of the true Gospel, an additional Gospel and another theology. That belief denies the work of Jesus’ death on the Cross, for Jesus suffered on the cross to tear down the middle wall of partition between Jews and all the people of the world to make in Himself — tortured and bleeding upon the cross — one new sphere of mankind for Himself — where everybody has righteousness created by Jesus — discarding reliance on anything else.
There is no more Jewish Christians versus OTHER Christians — there is only Jesus Christ crucified for all of people, then rising from the dead to make one new way of thinking and living toward God — called Christians. For this reason, we all suffer — whether Jewish, Native-American, Hispanic, Afro-European, African-American, Italian, Russian, Canadian, Europeans, etc. There is only JESUS and only Christians.
Confirmation Of The Error In Messianic
God intervened and did a miracle that confimred this message you are reading. About a month and a half AFTER writing this message, someone I have no connections to emailed me about something they are involved in called Sukkot, which Messianics in Boise and elsewhere, celebrate.
There are many in Boise/Treasure Valley who do consider themselves followers of Jesus Christ while blending or adding all kinds of things to Jesus Christ, not just the Messianics. These don’t realize the effect of taking their minds off obedience to Jesus while entangling themselves in the pursuit of various thinking and rituals alleged to be about Jesus will make them not follow Jesus (in Jesus’ opinion). They will become followers of another emerging theology.
If I am not His follower in Jesus’ own opinion about me, then my opinion about being a Christian, disciple, or follower does not count. Understand that for your soul and spirit survival in this generation.
Jesus, Himself, warned against such thinking and conduct in His Revelation to John. Not only do we avoid adding to the prophecy of Revelation, but the principle is that we do not add ANYTHING to or take anything from Jesus Christ, period. We do not add or take away from the Gospel, for to do so brings a person under the curse of eternal damnation.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. — KJV
Secondly, blending Jewish and Christian beliefs (two separate religions) is not possible according to Jesus Christ, Himself. Jesus is God visiting us in human flesh. So, He knows.
Jesus’ apostle, Paul, was sent to bring the whole non-Jewish world to repentance from our sins and the power of God through the Name — Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul was extremely firm about not blending Jewish beliefs and practices into the Gospel for furthering the truth of the Cross.
Such blending does displacethe Gospel to invent another organized religion that allows persons to ignore the conscience of Jesus while concentrating on outward ceremonies. NONE HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH WASHING AWAY SIN IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
The reason Jesus came was to end the practice of the Jewish religion as a means of pleasing God and to offer the righteousness that brings eternal life through Himself, alone, as God.
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
A third reason that focus upon blending Jesus’ Gospel with the old traditions of Jewish worship and intensive study of the Hebrew language for Hebrew “interpretations” of the Gospel is extremely dangerous:
ALL the persecution, beatings, imprisonments, ostracizations, and eventual execution that Paul experienced was for obeying Jesus’ vison and command that He preach SALVATION IS ONLY IN JESUS and DO NOT CONTINUE THE WORSHIP IN THE JEWISH FAITH with ITS TRADITIONS and CEREMONIES. Paul spoke from Jesus that the traditions of animal sacrifices, festivals, sabbaths, circumcision for faith, etc. were only commanded to the Jews for a season to pont them to recognizing and obeying the Christ when He arrives.
NOW THAT JESUS HAS COME, BEING THE CHRIST, THE SEASON FOR JEWS TO OBSERVE TRADITIONS FOR RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD IS PAST. IT WAS NEVER MEANT FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. NOW, JESUS IS OUR SABBATH, JESUS IS OUR PASSOVER, JESUS IS OUR ATONEMENT — NEVER A PARTICULAR DAY(S) or CEREMONY.
A fourth reason that blending Jesus’ Gospel with the old traditions of Jewish worship and intensive study of the Hebrew language for Hebrew “interpretations” of the Gospel is destructive to your soul and spirit survival:
We no longer celebrate the Jewish passover. All Christians, both Jewish and the rest of the world, celebrate “The Lord’s Supper”.
Christians do not celebrate Jewish holidays to please God or understand our salvation because, NOW, we celebrate Jesus Christ, Himself. Jesus is beyond the passover, better than the Old Testament, higher than and Lord over sabbaths. WE CELEBRATE JESUS! He has replaced all those things in HIMSELF — as God in flesh.
7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
King James Version
21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
King James Version
3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
King James Version
21 And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.
King James Version
9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
King James Version
11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
A fifth and the most dangerous result of focus upon Jewishness — blending Jesus’ Gospel with the old traditions of Jewish worship and intensive study of the Hebrew language for Hebrew “interpretations” of the Gospel.
Since the first Christians, Satan has a steady intent and tactics to camouflage Judaism into the worship of Jesus Christ. It is a subtle form of denying that salvation only can come through obedience to Jesus Christ, alone, and that only mastering the love Jesus has will get you in Heaven. Although Jesus came as a Jew — He did NOT come to continue or establish Jewishness for the whole world with their traditions of worshiping God. He DID COME to establish that the very kind of FAITH to obey God, which Jewish Abraham had is the same kind of faith we all must prove by obeying JESUS’ kind of LOVE. It takes the faith of Jesus of Nazareth to love as God loves.
While occupying their time in studying Hebrew and the Old Testament, primarily, these deceived brethren have turned attention away from studying JESUS and only His commands through the New Testament confirmed in His apostles. such as Paul. Jesus and His commands IS the Gospel — anything else is not. Jesus’ preachers give their lives to living, preaching, teaching, warning and enforcing Jesus’ commands — not the study of Hebrew. If you do not spend your time in Jesus’ commands — you WILL continuously disobey and despise Him and his preoccupation with the love of God … and that will land you in eternal damnation.
To everyone who is, still, worshiping the Jewish religion:
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

Since Jesus had no office for meeting with anyone and none of the apostles had an “office”. Money will no longer be received and paid to investors of commercial property for a “physical office” of Truth Seekers Church. Money has been paid for a registered agent physical address. Jesus turned the entire world without most of the things we think are needed today “to do church” . When needed, Jesus always met with persons anywhere and He has wisdom and power today to guide “in the moment” a location to meet with any sincere and precious soul seeking spiritual counsel. The Ethiopian eunuch was sent by Jesus to bring His Gospel to an entire nation from counsel received while riding on a chariot! (Acts 8:25-40)
