We pray you've had a great 7th month!

Here we are, at the end of the 7th Hebrew month! It's been a full and blessed month for us, despite the problems we have been dealing with due to the wildfire. We have been blessed in many ways by so many of you throughout the special days of this 7th month. We pray this has been a month of refreshment for you and your family, putting you in good stead for the road ahead.

Listener Q + A

Listener Comment (Australia)
Must we keep Jewish Traditions?
   Can you help me, I am desperate for the truth? I have read your books and download the radio programs each week. We have been on a journey for a few years now and absolutely know the truth of the Sabbath and feasts and the Name, we no longer celebrate Christmas etc. We came out of the Christian church 8 years ago but now really want to be in fellowship with like minded people. My husband was brought up an orthodox Jew but saw much hypocrisy with it. He converted to Christianity 30 years ago. We have started to attend a congregation that we believe has the truth but they appear to be more Jewish than my husband. The men all wear tallits and Kippurs which they kiss before putting on. They then go through the same liturgy each week, reading English and Hebrew. There are many other Jewish rituals they go through. They certainly have truth but is it necessary to do all that each week?

I am very confused, I know the church has most of it wrong but this seems a little over the top. I believe we are very much coming to the return of Yashua, we are in our 70's anyway and want to walk the way of the truth whatever the cost. I will greatly value your thoughts on this.

Tsiyon Answer - Must we keep Jewish Traditions?
   You have brought up a question about something we hear a lot. Your husband, having been brought up as an orthodox Jew, has that in common with a large minority of our listeners. Many such listeners, like your husband, have left most of the Jewish religious traditions behind to pursue a living relationship with Messiah. A number of our ethnic Jewish listeners have also been disappointed by an excess of rabbinical tradition in various Messianic congregations they have associated with. Having come out of that sort of religious worship, they don't really want to go back under what they perceive as bondage to religious traditions again. We are glad that these folks feel relieved and blessed when they come home to Tsiyon.

That is not to say that all Jewish customs are bad. Some like to follow various Jewish traditions because those traditions make them feel more connected to Israel. I don't mean to criticize those folks. Another reason is outreach to ethnic Jews. It is sometimes believed that the congregation following the traditions makes it easier for ethnic Jews to come to faith in Messiah in such an environment. This may be true for some, but not for others, as with your husband and the sub-set of ethnic Jews who associate with Tsiyon. Also, much can be learned from various Jewish traditions, which is another reason many find them valuable.

However, your question was not: is it OK to follow some Jewish traditions?

I perceive your question to be: is it REQUIRED to follow Jewish traditions?

It is required of an Israelite, whether natural or grafted-in, to keep the commandments, as our Messiah did, following Him. This is the hallmark of the true Jew, as defined by YHWH. (Lev 23:31, Duet 4:13, Ecc 12:13, Matt 5:19, Romans 2:28-29, 1 Jn 2:3)

It is NOT required to keep the traditions of men, time-honored though many of them may be. In fact, if those traditions are replacing the commandments of YHWH, circumventing them, or replacing a living relation with YHWH through Messiah, then they have become a stumbling block to true faith and need to be abandoned. (Duet 4:2, Mark 7:7, Jn 14:15,21, 1 Cor 7:19, Titus 1:14)

As Messiah told the Samaritan woman at the well:

But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”               John/Yochanan 4:23-24

Worshipping Him in Spirit and Truth is what YHWH is looking for.
