Torah Portion RE‘EH – Devarim (Deutoronomy) 11:26-16:17
See how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, that ran down on the beard, even Aaron’s beard, that came down on the edge of his robes, like the dew of Hermon, that comes down on the hills of Zion; for there Yahveh gives the blessing, even life forever more. Psalm 133:1-3 WEB
Shabbat shalom, dearly beloved!
Nothing seems more elusive than true shalom, harmony and unity. Yet, if we attain it, we can enjoy His commanded Blessing, abundance of life and a great harvest of souls.
The picture in Psalm 133 is of Aaron the High Priest (who represents Yeshua) being anointed with Holy Oil. Unity is obtained by the outpouring of Oil or Anointing that comes from the highest to the lowest place. Mount Hermon is the highest mountain of Israel while the mountains of Zion or actually Mount Zion is the place of sacrifice. The main Mountain of Zion is the Temple Mount were the blood sacrifices of worship to YHVH took place. True unity is never obtained without sacrifice. Our unity with YHVH was obtained through the blood sacrifice of the Messiah Yeshua. And for us to remain in unity with Yeshua we need to become a Living Sacrifice.
“I urge you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice—holy, acceptable to God—which is your spiritual service. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 TLV
When we are in unity with Him (after we surrender our will to His), our spirit, soul and body will be in harmony – and then Shalom, total wholeness and wellbeing, will be ours. When we only “partially surrender” or partially obey, there will be strife and sickness in our lives. We will not be in unity with Him. Attitudes like selfish ambition and jealousy will bring evil upon us and all our relationships.
For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in Shalom by those who make Shalom. Yaakov (James) 3:16-18 WEB
In order to have harmony and shalom in our life we need to become pure vessels full of wisdom from above. This wisdom is pure and has good fruits, but it is not religious or hypocritical; it is a wisdom that stems from the flow of the priestly anointing in us. This only happens when we are in unity with the Messiah and have no other agenda but His.
When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave himself up for me. Galatians (Gal) 2:20 CJB
When we are in unity with Yeshua, we can then find others that are in unity with Yeshua and walk together with them in agreement (in Hebrew- YACHAD) that brings about the Blessing.
Do two walk together, unless they have agreed? Amos 3:3 WEB
Two in agreement with the Messiah and with each other can bring Heaven down to earth! This can be a married couple or even two friends in the Messiah.
Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father in heaven. Matthew 18:19 TLV
We need to pursue being in shalom with all people, even if they are not “on the same page” as we are. However, we should never compromise our holy walk or our faith principles while pursuing harmony with other people.
Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14 WEB
First is unity with Yeshua without any compromise, then we can walk in different levels of unity with others, without compromising holiness or righteousness to be more accepted and popular. We can even live in shalom with people who do not believe as we do. However, agreement among friends or spouses, co-laborers and ministry / work teams that are united in a common faith, vision and mission is the most effective and rewarding.
The last prayer of Yeshua was about unity. He prayed to the Father for unity among all believers. However, for 2000 years this prayer has not been answered – as there are more than 33,000 denominations in the church! The reason for all these division and this unanswered prayer is Replacement Theology and the divorce of the church from the 4th century from its Jewish Roots and foundations. This divorce happened because of jealousy, selfish ambition, and arrogance of the gentile Christians against the Jewish believers. Paul warned about this arrogance:
But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the root and of the richness of the olive tree, don’t boast over the branches. But if you boast, it is not you who support the root, but the root supports you. Romans 11:17-18 WEB
Due to this arrogance all evil things entered the church worldwide, among these was a terrible anti-Semitism that murdered millions of Jews in the name of Jesus Christ. The Covenant Name of Messiah, His birth name Yeshua meaning Salvation, was forbidden. Yet, Yeshua prayed for unity and He guarded, kept and protected His disciples by the name the Father gave Him – not by the name men transliterated, which is Jesus Christ. The transliterated Roman name lost the meaning and the power of the Covenant name of Yeshua, which means salvation, including healing and deliverance.
I revealed Your name to the (Jewish) people whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You have given them to Me. They have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things whatever You have given Me are from You, for the words which You have given Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew for sure that I came from You. They have believed that You sent me. I pray for them. I don’t pray for the world, but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. John 17:6-10
I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father keep them through Your name which You have given Me, that they may be one, even as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. I have kept those whom You have given Me. None of them is lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. John 17:11-12
The change of name and thus the change of the identity of the Messiah from a Jew to a Roman Christ has brought untold evils and divisions. Restoring His Holy Name and Jewish Identity will restore shalom and unity to His Body. Anyone that opposes this restoration is siding with satan to keep His people divided and powerless so that the great End Time Harvest will not happen.
Sanctify them in Your truth. Your word is truth. John 17:17 TLV
The only Word available until the 4th century was the Hebrew Holy Scriptures which many have called “Old Testament”. This includes the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings. It is this word that sanctifies! But, since Replacement Theology was established by Constantine, people would not be allowed to receive instruction from the original Word of God and His Commandments. This has caused untold confusion, disorder, disharmony and sickness.
Not for these (Jews)only do I pray, but for those (Gentiles and Jews) also who will believe in Me through their word, that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that You sent Me. The glory which You have given Me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as We are one; I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them, even as you loved Me.” John 17:20-23 WEB
Gentiles were supposed to believe from the word of the Jewish Apostles and disciples. The Truth of the original Gospel made in Zion would have brought unity and a mega harvest of souls. But instead a Babylonian Christian religious system was established, shunning the Jewish Roots, the Torah, the Jewish People and the Jewish Messiah Himself! A terrible Identity Theft occurred that has cost the lives of millions in the name of Jesus Christ and Christianity. And, though today there is more light, still many Christians are opposing this Restoration which will bring about Shalom, Harmony and Unity – if received with childlike faith and a humble heart. If you are in the Spirit, you will obtain the Mind of Messiah on this and will receive revelation. If you are in the flesh (defending your religious opinions and theological lies), you will oppose this Mighty Move of Restoration and you will bring strife and spiritual death.
For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and shalom; Romans 8:6 WEB
Being friends with worldliness, including religion, is enmity with Yah. Yeshua did not come to establish Christianity as a means of salvation and redemption. He came to give His Blood Life for us to have forgiveness. Then also to interpret Yah’s Torah Commandments and instructions through the Holy Spirit (who leads us into all truth) allows us to live holy and walk righteous, anointed and empowered to display His Kingdom.
All the wars and divisions have been religious wars!
Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don’t they come from your pleasures that war in your members? You lust, and don’t have. You murder and covet and can’t obtain. You fight and make war. You don’t have, because you don’t ask. You ask, and don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulterers and adulteresses, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hostility toward YHVH? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of YHVH. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously”? Yaakov (James) 4:1-5 WEB
The religious system of Christianity was born out of jealousy against the Jews preeminence in the Gospel and the selfish ambition of Emperor Constantine of Eastern Rome. But Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah said His legacy to us is shalom, wellbeing and wholeness – not this religious disharmony and spiritual schizophrenia!
He is a Jew: His name is Yeshua, His Torah is not done away with and the natural People of Israel are still His Chosen People. Once we all repent and return to the Gospel made in Zion, shalom, harmony and unity will be the Mark of Yeshua’s sanctified and pure Bride. Jew and Gentile will be ONE, Echad and Yachad (unity of vision, purpose and mission): in the same Yeshua, the same Gospel, the same Torah-Word, the same Moadim (Holy Feasts) the same Holy Spirit and the same Love.
“Shalom I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.” John 14:27 WEB
For Yeshua’s prayer of UNITY to be answered, we have to repent and return in order to be restored to the Gospel of Shalom, the Gospel made in Zion. Now, it is time to pray for this restoration like never before. The life of millions and entire nations depends on this End Time Restoration of Shalom, Harmony and Unity among us believers.
Let your gentleness be known to all men. Adonai is at hand. In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to YHVH. And the Shalom of YHVH, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Yeshua the Messiah. Philippians 4:5-7 WEB
Let us enter into His Covenant of Shalom promised to the People of Israel – extended to the Gentiles like Ruth that will join, serve, love His Chosen People and become grafted into the same Olive Tree through the Blood of the King of all Jews, the Jewish Messiah Yeshua.
Though the mountains depart and the hills be shaken, My love will not depart from you, nor will My covenant of shalom be shaken, says ADONAI who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10 TLV
