The Samurai are often regarded as lethal oriental warriors of a bygone era without much thought to what motivated them. The word “Samurai” means “those who serve in close attendance to the king.” The philosophy of the Samurai was, “When one is serving officially or in the master's court, he should not think of a hundred or a thousand people, but… Continue

The so-called floating "Lunar Sabbath" is a recent invention. There
is no evidence that anyone ever followed it until recent times. To the
contrary the historical evidence PROVES that the ancient Hebrews
(Including Yeshua himself) kept the Seventh day of the week
("Saturday") and not a so-called floating "Lunar Sabbath".
The following information was obtained from, "The Anchor Bible
Dictionary" Vol. 5; Pg. 853f.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
My understanding of this verse is that the evil one's intention is to change times and laws. Concerning changing laws, HaSatan certainly has distorted God's laws with his deceptions that the Torah has been done away with. Much has been written on this… Continue

Nazarene Goals we should have as Nazarene is clear goals and directions we should be working towards.
What we are trying to do is proclaim two things "To the law(Torah) and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variables, neither shadow of turning. " James 1:17
Since entering into a Nazarene Israelite walk, my wife and I have noted significant differences with a great many things pertaining to this faith and our former lives as Christians. Along the way, some people on the fringe of this movement have asked questions and made valid enquiries as to the origin of customs, rituals and liturgies involved in keeping Shabbat and… Continue

THE PRE-MATURE, PRE-TRIB RAPTURE By James Scott Trimm
The doctrine of the Pre-Trib Rapture is a late Christian doctrine which is running rampant in Messianic Judaism. This late Christian doctrine did not even emerge in Christendom until the nineteenth century. This late Christian theology has somehow managed to find favor with many of… Continue
1. And men came down from Y'hudah and were teaching the brothers,
Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of the Torah, you are not able to have life [eternal].
In Acts 15 we have a halachic issue being settled by the Rosh Beit Din. In order to understand the proceedings of that meeting and its ruling we must know what the issue was that was before it. In this case Paul's position is not… Continue
For many people there are parts of Rabbi Sha’ul’s letters that contain some challenging teachings. When sufficient study is not applied to these grey areas a believer can unconsciously open the door to theological error. Occasionally I encounter some Natsarim who have declared “no confidence” in Sha’ul’s writings as “Yah-breathed” and it is in response to these encounters… Continue

Prophecy was fulfilled in 1996 by the establishment of the International Nazarene Beit-Din and the Worlwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim (then known as the Society for the Advancement of Nazarene Judaism).
This year began a call from Judah to Ephraim to “come out of Babylon”.
In a footnote to Isaiah 1:9 the Ryrie Study Bible has the following comment:
"Quoted in Rom. 9:29 with reference to Christian Jews."
The Sefer Yetzirah is an ancient Hebrew document which among the earliest and most significant of Kabbalistic texts. No one knows who the author of the book was, several possibilities have been proposed. One possibility that has occurred to me is that Yochanan the Emissary and Talmid of Yeshua was the author. There are a number of parallels between the Sefer Yetzirah and the book of Revelation:
1. Both books make use of the “seven stars”. Rev. 1:16, 20 refer to “the seven stars”… Continue
Some have asked about the relationship between Messianic Judaism and Nazarene Judaism, the following in an excerpt from a teaching given at our first conference NETZARIM '99 in 1999 by Rav Mikhael:
I believe the central issue that we need to address is one of identity. With whom do we identify, or, as I have heard it poignantly stated before, with whom will we be persecuted? Many people who hear of us and what we are doing will identify us with the Messianic Jewish Movement (I… Continue
Although Nazarene Judaism can be classed as “Messianic Judaism” there are certainly some differences between our movement and what is commonly called “Messianic Judaism”.
