Choosing Culture

Psalm 45:6 KJV
Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Israel has chosen culture over God.

They are a nation once again. They have revived the Jewish language and traditions, but when will they choose their God over the past?

Only by recognizing Jesus as the Christ, our Messiah, will they come to God. Living under the Old Testament they falsely believe they can approach God the Father directly. We who live under the New Testament know better. 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

In the days of Esther, the King extended his scepter granting life to those unbidden before him. Jesus is the royal scepter extending life from Jehovah to those that seek him.

May Israel choose Jesus and the New Testament over their culture, soon.

Any Other Name

I noticed on Twitter someone complaining that Jesus Christ isn’t a name. I get it. I think years ago, I even pointed that out to someone in a conversation myself.

Technically it is a name and a title. But is it worth arguing about. I’m not so sure. There is only one Christ and many Jesus’s. The Holy Bible refers to him as Christ Jesus and Jesus Christ. Christ may not be a last name, but it is an identifier. I think as long as we know whom we are discussing it’s a bit of a moot point.

I personally do not care for the name Yeshua. To me it appears to be a modern Hebrewization of the name Jesus. I prefer the name Jesus, it’s what I grew up with. If you happen to hear of historical evidence Jesus was ever called Yeshua, please comment.
