Far too many Jews do not know what it means to be Jewish. They have been so assimilated that their Jewish hearts are only just barely beating and that counter to the cacophony of life. We must teach Torah and life-meaning to the Jew first and then after that to the ends of the earth. When the Messiah comes, will he find us busy working in the fields - white and ready for harvest? We should be praying without ceasing... with Samuel saying (1 Samuel 12:23), “Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way.” Will we be Samuel to this generation, teaching "the good and the right way?" We can do this! As one great Rabbi said, "To the Jew first and then to the Gentiles." All of Israel will say, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!" As Adonai said, "My house will be called a house of prayer for the nations."
If you want to learn more about what it means to be truly Jewish, to replace that heart of stone (non-beating, cold, hard, and silent) with a beating heart of flesh, remaining ethnically Jewish so that you can easily fulfill prophecies spoken thousands of years ago by just being, or like Ruth - joining your heart to another, grabbing the Tzitzit on the fringe of the Tallit saying "Take us with you for we have heard that you know Torah," or being grafted in to the true vine via the teachings of the disciples of the Messiah, the Sages, the Rabbis, the early Church Fathers and many wise and faithful people who heard the voice of Adonai through the centuries, if this is your desire, is today your appointed time? Like this post and/or message me. Let's talk.
And, if you are not comfortable talking with me, then Adonai is listening. Open your heart and voice to the One. He will show you what to do next. If you don't hear a response, let me know. Perhaps, our prayers married with yours will help open the heavens for you. I believe He will hear and respond to your plea out of His abundant mercies. This is His promise to you.
