TIME FOR SELF-RESPECTING JEWS TO STAND UP – 21 July 2013

According to the inspired Word of God given to us in the Bible, YHVH, the one and only true God, created Jacob, Israel, and all called by His name, for His glory.  He alone is the only Savior who forgives sin.  He only is the Deliverer  from enemies and foreign gods.  YHVH, the Holy One of Israel, is the  only One who knows all things from the beginning through beyond their end. (Is 43:1-15)

The revelation from God that the Jewish people are a creation (as was Adam, and as is the born-again believer in Jesus) makes them unique among other people groups, races, clusters, ethnicities.  Despite all the mixture that is acknowledged (i.e., no pure-blood credentials), there remains the historic identity and collective memory, with a lineage and civilization that has set us apart, that has been the subject and object of specific recognition, honor, and attack, and that has survived in a distinct way which still differentiates the Jewish and Israeli people from others.  The God of Israel is the living God!  Without Him, we are not, for it is He who has made us.

CIRCUMCISION BAN – 26 July 2012

Germany and Austria have banned religious circumcisions on Jewish male babies, and on Muslim males.  In California, attempts  have been made to also ban circumcision.  Those decision-makers and complying hospitals and doctors think that cutting the foreskin of an 8-day-old baby causes “grievous bodily harm”, and that it is a denial of those persons’ civil liberties to impose on him a religious practice of faith by their parents.  What if, when the Jewish person would be old enough to understand, he would have wanted to be circumcised by his parents as part of their covenantal obligations to keep the covenant (not to mention how much more it will hurt when done after infanthood!)?

E HAIM’S CIRCUMCISION – 28 Dec 1988

Gen 17:1,7,10-14 – Establishment of the covenant by YHVH with Abram (Abraham); identification with and relationship to the people, the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
            John 7:22 – The circumcision is not of Moses, but of the fathers.

Deut 10:15-19 – Circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked.

Deut 30:1-6 — The LORD will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love YHVH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Jer 4:1-4 – Circumcise yourselves to YHVH.

Jer 9:22-25 – Glory in the LORD; there is no difference –in themselves—between the circumcised and uncircumcised.

Rom 2:28 – 3:2 – For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly [only]; neither is it circumcision which is outward in the flesh.  But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart – in the spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.  What advantage then has the Jew?  Or what profit is there in circumcision?  Much every way:  chiefly, because unto them (us) were committed the oracles of God.

1Cor 7:19 – Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but rather the keeping of the commandments of God.  (E Haim means “stone of life”; our prayer is that he will become a “living stone” — e chaya — through spiritual new birth by repentance and faith in the gospel at an early age.)

Gal 5:6 – For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

Philp 3:3 – For we are the circumcision which worship God in the Spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
