What is the purpose of this site?
We, as Torah obedient believers in Y’shua, want to share through this website what we learn with others. We are all on a journey of discovering and learning YHVH’s set apart way. We have decided to write what we learn into blog posts; this enables us to share it with others and also be able to reference back to it later. It has happened in the past that we wanted to share some truth, we have learned with others, just to find that we have forgotten the scriptural reference or other details. We have experienced this as very ineffective and frustrating; often having to go back and research everything again. It is also useful to reference back to when we come to an appointed time (moed) to see what we have learned the previous cycle.
Thus, our objective is to share and to learn. We invite every person reading this blog to comment in the comment box below the article. This will enable us to learn from other people’s insights as well. No opinion stated in any article is cast in stone – we all learn and grow and as we learn and grow, we may change our opinion. We want to remain teachable and will therefore often review past articles and correct according to our understanding.
What makes the site different?
We want to focus a lot on “What does it mean to live a holy (set apart) life”. In the Messianic community, we currently find many sites focusing on Torah Studies, Apologetics, and/or end-time prophecies. These are required, but none of them tell me what it means to me on a day-to-day basis. Yes, we will also do interesting articles on Torah studies, Apologetics, and other relevant articles, but this is not the primary focus of our website.
Who are we?
We are Torah (commandment) observant believers in Y’shua the Messiah. We believe that our redemption is only through our belief in Him. Through His Sacrificial death, Y’shua took our sins upon Him, thereby redeeming us from eternal damnation. Y’shua is His Hebrew name and we will therefor not refer to Him by any other name. However, we do not condemn anybody who does, we are all learning!
We choose to follow the commandments out of love for our Heavenly Father. We know that there is no justification in keeping the commandments or law, as some prefer to refer to it. The commandments were given to us all as children of YHVH in order to show us how to live, thereby keeping us safe and healthy.
We believe that Abba YHVH wants us to know and use His name and keep His instructions. As believers in Him we have become part of His chosen people, Israel. We have not replaced Israel in any way or form, but are grafted into Israel as described in Romans 11:
