"And it shall come to pass that from one new moon to another and from one sabbath to another shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord," (Isaiah 66:23)
"Sanctify my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you that you may know that I am the Lord your God," (Ezekiel 20:20)
Last night, I went to a harp ensemble concert (spectacular!) and my mother-in-law introduced me to her Messianic friend (non-Jewish). I couldn't help asking this delightful sister how she got involved in Messianic Judaism. Her response was that she felt called to reach out to Messianic Jews and learn about Messianic Judaism.
To me, this is the real Tent of David (contrary to what some ministries teach), this dynamic of non-Jews leaving their Christian spheres of influence so that they can be nourished by Judaic spheres of influence.
Case in point:
Christians teach that the Jewish Shabbat has been abolished. But a Messianic understands that this is a lie, that Shabbat is meant for "all flesh" and is the time that you can "know" G-d. And, as a communal day, the only way we communal beings can really "delight" in Shabbat is by breaking off from the Christian sphere of influence and joining a community that worships on Shabbat.
As we prepare for Shavuot, I hope all the dear readers out there will not just have a restful Shabbat but a worshipful Shabbat!
