Outcry Ministries | What’s The Big Deal About Christmas? – Learn Torah

If you are an American or were raised within a western culture, you are probably familiar with the emphasis placed on Christmas. It is such a cultural event that many employers either close or operate on a reduced staff. People leave their homes and travel to visit family and friends. Some attend church. Some sing songs.

Where is your gaze? Are you wanting to learn Torah, but seem to be hitting a wall? Maybe you have joined a Hebrew Roots assembly, or a Messianic Synagogue. Maybe you have even converted to Judaism because you have been told that it is Jewish Law. I’m here to tell you that no matter where you are, if you will fix your gaze on the Creator of the Universe, He will fix His gaze on you! There are many Torah Ministries out there, and while no one Torah ministry is exactly alike, they are all very similar. We, however want to share the Truth with you. You have to die to yourself. You CANNOT bring your past with you. If you have anything left to give to the King of Babylon, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Israel. Upon whom are you fixing your gaze?
