Jewish Roots and the Law
by Sid Roth
Many are confused about Jewish Roots and Messianic
Judaism and Old Testament or the Law. I was one of a few Jewish believers that
started one of the first Messianic Jewish Synagogues in North America. When we
started there was a major move of God’s Spirit being poured out on all people.
Our small group was mostly Jewish and we found Jewish people were being saved
every week. It was glorious!
Today the movement is not very evangelistic and has
the same problems, warts and pimples as ALL denominations. But God started this
modern day movement and is about to use it mightily! Why? Because He is about
to have mercy on His Jewish people. Many are about to be saved before the world
turns against the Jew.
Be very careful when you judge all Messianic Jews
because some are in excess. God loves ALL of His Assemblies of Believers deeply
and it is very dangerous to judge! If you are THE judge you can start by
judging me! My whole life is but for one purpose and that is to hear God’s
voice and be obedient. I am not better or loved more because I am a physical
Jew. God says there is no Jew, Gentile, male or female in the Spirit. But in
the flesh there are males and females, Jews and Gentiles. And God has DIFFERENT
callings for each. Different callings for a mother or father does not make one
better or more loved by God than the other.
The very first believers in Jesus were all practicing
Jews. The New Testament had not even been written. The ONLY bible they had was
the Old Testament. By the way, I find all the truths of the New Testament in
the Old Testament. In fact I can preach the full Gospel truth just from the Old
Testament! I wish the Church today had the same power the first Church had when
they only had the Old Testament!

I also love how the Old Testament gives me a better
I do not judge a Believer that chooses to follow God
