What Do Messianic or Messianic Jews Believe?
The Messianic faith takes several forms and as a journey, begins in different places for those choosing to follow “the narrow road”. I’d like to define what Messianic beliefs are:
1. G-d is Echad (one), for in scripture Moshe states “Hear of Israel, the L-rd is one G-d”
2. The Patriarchs are the forefathers of all we believe
3. The Torah (first 5 books of scripture) are the basis (foundation) for all other scripture, and the commandments given in the Torah are the basis for a life pleasing to G-d
4. Yeshua is the Messiah and creator of everything,
5. Yeshua and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Breath) are part of the one G-d. Yeshua is the physical incarnation of G-d in a human body, and is called Ha’Davar – The Word of G-d.
6. The Ruach Ha’Kodesh is the Holy Breath of G-d.
7. The promises to Israel still are in effect, and will be fulfilled
8. That former gentile believers are grafted into the Common Wealth of Israel.
9. That Yeshua did not do away with the observance of Torah.
The role of the Torah is clearly the what differentiates Messianics from most Churches. Whereas belief in Yeshua as Messiah is clearly what differentiates us from most Synagogues.
