Freedom from the Cocoon

I spent over a year working on an expository study on the book of Hebrews, “Holding onto Faith - Understanding the book of Hebrews for you today.” At the time I was writing it, I was unaware of the massive effort being made to make Christians renounce their faith in Jesus and return to Judaism.

The book of Hebrews was written to encourage Hebrew believers to remain in the faith and to not return to Judaism in order to escape persecution. I find it to be ironic that the Lord had me involved with a project that would be a constructive tool to help combat the attempts of an antichrist spirit to lead people into a religion that offers no hope of salvation.

Some of these “Judaizers” operating today are very effective and many Christians who have a nominal background in God’s word are being deceived. I am reminded of Jesus’ words in Matthew 24:11 – “And many false prophets shall rise and deceive many.”

Joy at the Wailing Wall

The Chosen People and their Right to the Holy Land

I think it is vitally important for pastors to be aware of this problem. They need to realize that many of those faces listening to them once a week, are also tuning into Youtube, and other sources on the internet where the Judaizers make the most out of their electronic pulpits. It is the responsibility of church leadership to make sure that their congregations have a thorough understanding of the uniqueness and truth of our Christian faith. It is not a religion that emerged two thousand years ago, but a faith that was foreshadowed in the garden of Eden and declared in multitudes of prophecies, foreshadows and typologies throughout the Old Testament that were fulfilled by the Messiah Jesus.

We need to recognize the importance of Judaism; the system of belief that was designed by God to be the womb through which redemption would be birthed for the entire world. But it is just a cocoon. The New Life God ordained for us through faith in the prophesied Messiah Jesus, has broken free. Christianity is the only faith that enables us to fly into the arms of God when we die. Returning to the cocoon would be disastrous for any butterfly as it is for all who prefer the smothering darkness of a now empty, yet wonderfully fulfilled religion.

Famous Rabbi Leaves Coded Message Pointing To Jesus.

Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri was a famous Rabbi in Israel, the equivalent of the Christian’s Billy Graham. He left a note before he died in 2006, giving specific instructions that it was not to be opened and read until a year after his death.

The note read – The nation will be raised up and it will become known that His word and His Torah stand.

It was discovered that the note contained a code. The first letter of each of the Hebrew words in the message spell “Yehoshua” – Joshua. The Rabbi would have understood that in later editions of the Hebrew Bible and also among the Jews in Jesus’ day, the name Yeshua, was another common form of the name Yehoshua. The name Yeshua in the Greek is lesous and the English equivalent is the name Jesus.
    The Rabbi apparently knew that his coded message would be discovered and that the Christians would understand what he was trying to convey.

“It would become known that His word and His Torah stand.” Why didn’t the Rabbi say in his note “God” specifically instead of the word “him?” He was obviously referring to the person who bore the name of Yehoshua, that was coded into his message.

In the Old Testament, Joshua led the people into the Promised Land, and is a similitude of the messiah. Jesus leads His people into the Promised Land of eternal life. The Rabbi’s coded message directs us to the fulfillment of the prophecy shown to us in Joshua’s story. Jesus is the Messiah.

Mathematical Odds

M.B Bleecker (Jan. 25, 1903 October 19, 2002, was an engineer who invented a helicopter prototype and the ram jet engine. He was also a Christian who self-published a little book entitled, “An Engineer Evaluates the Bible.” I picked up a copy when I was visiting a church in New Jersey where he lived.

There are about three hundred prophecies concerning the Messiah Jesus interwoven throughout the Old Testament. Mr. Bleecker and a friend counted them and found that some of them are repetitions of the same prophecy. For example, the prophecy concerning Jesus being from the line of David is repeated about fourteen times. The prophecy that tells us that the Messiah is to be born in Bethlehem is repeated five times. They found that the number of non-repeating distinct prophecies is about one hundred and ninety. We need to take into consideration that Mr. Bleecker was an engineer, not a Bible scholar, so he may have missed some of them. However, He took one hundred and fifty of the remarkable, non-repeating prophecies that Jesus fulfilled and calculated the odds of His fulfilling those prophecies. The odds of one man fulfilling one hundred and fifty prophecies in one lifetime are one in –


The odds of Jesus fulfilling just eight of them in His lifetime are one in -

100, 000, 000,000,000,000

I’m not a mathematician or an engineer, so I can’t define these numbers for you in millions, billions or trillions, I don’t have a clue. But what I do know when I look at these amazing figures is that God, The Ultimate Mathematician, has given us the numbers that point the way to the miracle of Messiah Jesus.

My mouth shall show forth Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day, for I know not the numbers thereof. – Psalm 71:15
