Dear The Refiner's Fire:
I came across an interesting question the other day as I was doing some reading on this one web site. Someone's question was: "What did Yeshua preach?" Mainstream Christianity, he then explained, will insist He preached the Gospel and the Good News, which is about the Messiah's death, burial, and resurrection for our sins.
The guy then went on to say that Yeshua was not preaching about His death burial and resurrection while He was alive; He was preaching about the Kingdom of God!!!
"But he (Yeshua) said, "I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent." (Luke 4:43)
"From morning till evening the Apostle Paul explained and declared the Kingdom of God and tried to convince people about Yeshua from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets." (Acts 28:23)
So, while His death, burial, and resurrection are an important part of the Good News, it's not the whole thing!
The guy then went on to say that there are four components to a Kingdom: A Ruler, a territory, the subjects, and laws. And that YHWH isn't just in the business of "saving" people, but He's also in the business of teaching us how to be good subjects in His Kingdom to come.
This all fits in so well with the points on your website that attempt to illustrate the importance of being Torah observant. My interest in reading about the millennial Kingdom got me thinking about how we will be worshiping in those days, and I'm positive it's going to be all about His statutes and commands and NOT man's traditions!!!
These will be good question to ask of people when I discuss this with others ..."Whose Sabbath do you think we'll be observing during Yeshua's millennial reign - God's or man's? Whose feast days will we be observing? God's or man's?
People need to learn to think for themselves instead of taking their pastors' words as gospel!
