Did you know about kinship teachings in the NT? kinship in Yeshua is not based upon race, being Jewish?
people cannot convert and suddenly claim superiority based on their race/ethnicity.
THE TORAH IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT OF EQUITY TO ALL.
But, it is also clear that Israel is the vessel that Elohim uses to fulfill his purpose.
Israelites or Jews should not mistreat anyone, oppress, or treat non-Jews like second class citizens.
If a person from the nations takes the yoke of Torah and submits to obedience then is our job to make sure he is not oppressed.
KINSHIP IS THE KEY TO BRINGING UNITY

Hugo Nun
Hugo Nun Part 4 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If Messiah is our High Priest to forgive us of our sins, what do we do when we sin?
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
SINNING = NOT FOLLOWING TORAH
Messiah is our High Priest of the New Covenant to forgive us when we don't follow Torah. However, forgiveness for not following Torah is based upon us REPENTING of our SIN. REPENTING means we make an oath or pledge in our hearts and minds to NOT SIN (which means that we pledge to FOLLOW TORAH when we REPENT).
MESSIAH OUR HIGH PRIEST AND TORAH TEACHER
Messiah is not only the High Priest of the New Covenant after the order of Melchezedek to forgive us of our sins but He will teach the Torah to ALL NATIONS during the Messianic Era.
Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the YAHUAH, to the house of the Aluhim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the YAHUAH from Jerusalem.
NEW COVENANT = CHANGE IN PRIESTHOOD / KEEP THE TORAH
Hebrews 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. based upon our understanding of what is written in the Torah and the Prophets.
We have concluded that when Messiah ushered in the New Covenant that He is our High Priest of the New Covenant after the order of Melchizedek.
With the New Covenant, Messiah didn't die on the tree to do away with His following the Torah but rather the New Covenant is the Torah written upon our hearts.
The prophets tell us that with the New Covenant that Messiah would change the HEARTS of His people. He wouldn't do away with the Torah because the New Covenant is the Torah written upon our hearts through the help of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Prior to the New Covenant, we were under the tutorship of the Levitical priesthood until Messiah came and gave us the New Covenant. With the New Covenant, the PRIESTHOOD changed. YAHUAH still desires for His people to follow the Torah through the help and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
During the Messianic Age when the Temple is rebuilt, the Levites will perform their Levitical services in the Temple under the New Covenant under the authority of the Melchezidek priesthood of the Messiah.

Elton Eyas if we will stick on the one sided argument that only aaronic priesthood is valid, then Yeshua will be disqualified. He did not come from aaron, he descended from Yahudah. thats why orthodox wont accept the MESSIAH as long as He had not yet returned, the orthodox will stay the same.

Hugo Nun Now I will say that in my walk Yahusha had me pray for others as the spirit move me. When I have pray I have seen many miracles done by YAHUSHA. Intercessor of prayer in the NAME of YAHUSHA our high priest. James. “A righteous man’s supplication, when it is at work, has much force.” 1 John 5:14-16 1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied: "Does the YAHUAH delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the YAHUAH? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. HalleluYAH.

Did you know that Zion is NOT just a name for the city of David?
B. Zion in the Bible
Most often Zion refers to parts of the city of Jerusalem and its environs or the country of which the city is the capital. Frequently, Zion even represents the inhabitants of Jerusalem or the whole country. Sometimes physical features connected with Zion are stressed. The praise of God is to be made in the “gates” of the Daughter of Zion (Ps 9:14), that “stronghold” which has “watchtowers” (Mic 4:Cool and whose “wall” the Lord determined to destroy (Lam 2:Cool. Mt. Zion experiences “dew” falling on it as the dew falls on Mt. Hermon (Ps 133:3). See Smith 1907: 134–69; Simons 1952: 60–64; Kenyon 1967: 187–93; Finegan 1969: 147–52.
When David captured Jerusalem at the beginning of the Monarchy, the city was called “the fortress of Zion,” “the City of David” (2 Sam 5:7; 1 Chr 11:5). At that time, it was only a small fortified city on the SE ridge S of what would subsequently become the Temple Mount. 1 Kgs 8:1 (= 2 Chr 5:2) relates how Solomon subsequently brought up from Zion, the City of David, the ark of the covenant to the new Zion, the Temple Mount.
The temple is therefore also called Zion, Mt. Zion, or the holy hill of Zion. The divine King of Israel is frequently spoken of as dwelling there. God, the Lord, is said to be enthroned in Zion (Ps 9:11); it (the temple) is his dwelling place (Ps 76:2), his holy hill (Joel 4:17, cf. the glory of God on the tabernacle, Exod 40:34). The Lord Almighty, is dwelling on Mt. Zion (Isa 8:18). God shines forth from Zion (Ps 50:2), the place where his Name dwells (Isa 18:7). It is from Zion that a deliverer/redeemer will come forth (Rom 11:26a [= Isa 59:20a]). This deliverer is the Son of whom God speaks, “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill” (Ps 2:6). He is that one whom God has laid as the cornerstone in Zion (Isa 28:16 [= Rom 9:33; 1 Pet 2:6]). In the future, it is from Mt. Zion that the Lord will rule over men forever (Mic 4:7); the Lord Almighty will reign on Mt. Zion, even in Jerusalem (Isa 24:23).
Furthermore, it is at the temple of the divine king that aliens such as Moab are instructed to bring lambs as tribute to the mount (the temple) of the Daughter of Zion (Isa 16:1). Also, when the Assyrian army advances against Jerusalem, Isaiah describes how that the enemy will defy the mount (the temple hill, or Jerusalem including the temple hill) of the Daughter of Zion (Isa 10:32).
Frequently the term “Zion” is used for Jerusalem, the city, or the people who inhabit it. The good news of the gospel is to be proclaimed to Zion, the people of Jerusalem (Isa 40:9; 52:7). Later this is expanded in Rom 10:15 to include the whole world. Making Zion prosper is equated with building up the walls of Jerusalem (Ps 51:18); furthermore, bringing judgment against Zion is also bringing judgment against Jerusalem (Isa 10:12). The Lord’s roaring from Zion is the same as his thundering from Jerusalem (Joel 4:16). The bloodshed practiced in Zion is explained as an illustration of wickedness of Jerusalem (Mic 3:10); the result of this wickedness will be that “Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble” (Mic 3:12).

I am currently going over all the verses and historical context of Zion and its context in the bible. Oh boy, I wonder how difficult is for the reader to know that the people, the temple, the city of David, the city of Jerusalem, Zion were also an idiom for kingship, the nation is also known as Zion.
how can anyone just think that Zion is only in relation to the city of David?
Did you know? the temple mount is also called the ZION and it deals with the temple?

DID YOU KNOW THE CULTURAL CONTEXT OF THIS COMMANDMENT?
DEUTERONOMY 14:1
“You are children of Yahweh your God; therefore you must not gash yourself, and ⌊you must not make your forehead bald⌋c for the dead.
Ancient Funerary Rites
Not surprisingly ancient Near Eastern parallels to the rites mentioned in 14:1 are found at Ugarit, since there was a cult of the dead there.A-123 Ugaritic kings were divinized after their death and became rpʾm (repāʾîm).A-124 Interaction with spirits of the dead was often tied to the use of a pit (Heb. bôr) in both ancient Near Eastern and Greek settings.A-125 But also the family at Ugarit was obliged to care for their deceased in order to stabilize the family.A-126
In a mourning rite El lacerates himself with a stone, cutting off his locks and making furrows in his cheeks and skin with a knife.A-127 Lewis understands the text describing El’s mourning over Baal’s death as an illustration of the fact that “the parallels from Ugarit clearly show that the mourning ritual involving self-laceration was a Canaanite practice and, hence, outlawed by normative Yahwism.”A-128 In the Aqhat Legend professional mourners cut or possibly bruised their skin.A-129 An Akkadian text from Ugarit describes persons who lacerate themselves on behalf of a dying righteous person.A-130
In Mesopotamian texts a cult of the dead is evident,A-131 and abundant funerary offerings are required to sustain the dead.A-132 Monthly sacrifices were presented to the dead at Mari,A-133 as many types of texts support offerings to various classes of deceased people, even the common person.A-134 West Semitic texts describe offerings and the care of dead kings.A-135 In Egypt a cult of the dead, involving ancestor worship, functioned; in the Old Kingdom only the king and nobles could take part in it. It featured elaborate rituals and sacrifices.A-136 In Canaanite culture these rituals could obtain blessings and favors from the dead—and placate the dead as well.A-137 Because of her separation to Yahweh, Israel was not to foster any such rituals.A-138

I do not care about NIBIRU, rapture theories or any other conspiracy going on and is time to stop the fear mongering because this movement is becoming a Joke the people outside. Time to grow and focus on the weightier matters of Torah.

All those false teachers that called for the rapture and the destruction of the known world please do me a favor sit your behind down and just serve Yah and stop leading people to disappointment. I ah e seeing tonight news making fun and mocking God because of all the foolishness this movement keeps promoting which is not biblical.
Do not send me any emails on any types of conspiracies, theories of the end of the world or any thing like that please.

TIME TO MATURE AND GROW UP.

Maybe now we can focus on things that actually matter.
There are a few million people in Puerto Rico suffering, thousands in mexico that died from the earthquake and many more on the islands who suffered from all the hurricanes. Houston citizens are Also in need and all the kingdom focuses is the end of the world and rapture?

I held my peace until after the 23rd on purpose I was waiting to see the reaction of people when nothing happens. Keep crying wolf and eventually people will never be afraid anymore. It is amazing how gullible some people in the Hebrew roots are that believe any crazy self appointed teacher who starts to scare people.

Every year is something new people. Stop the nonsense and except the fact that we are suppose to be the LIGHT IN THIS DARK WORLD. How in the world can we be witnesses if you want to escape? I am ashamed of the torah following community for continually falling prey to all these sensational, speculative and divisive doctrines going around.

Anyone can appoint themselves a teacher and then we wonder why we are not respected and fragmented.

I have being on this journey for 20 years now and is sad that we have not really changed and we complaint about the Christians but why in the world would a christian want to join us? Why?
We divided, argue, debate, we think we know everything, we have become self righteous, we are no longer teachable, we do according to the imagination of our own hearts.

RECONSIDER YOUR WAYS ISRAEL BECAUSE THE FEAR YOU KEEP PUTTING ON PEOPLE EVENTUALLY IT WILL PERSUE US BECAUSE OF OUR REBELLIONS AND SELF RIGHTEOUS ATTITUDES.

I for one repent and wan to do what is right and even if I go alone me and my house will serve YHVH.

Shalom
It is time for people to STOP listening to self-appointed teachers who only teach the kingdom to question their faith in order to minimize Yeshua as our Master. This happens because people do not want any direction. If you follow a teacher who teaches you to always find fault with something in the bible please find another teacher.
