MY JEWISH JESUS
It was in September 2013. I was in bed on my laptop around 3am when I heard the Ruach say to me “Repent, for you do not know me”. The call to repentance was so strong that I immediately got up and went in my bathroom and fell to my knees and cried out for forgiveness and I kept saying: “Who are you? Show me who you are.
Then He said: “I am Jewish”.
I will never forget those two words as it changed the entire way I saw Scripture. He told me to study His culture and study Him as a Jew and that was the beginning of how I got into the Hebrew Roots movement.
The first thing He showed me was Leviticus 11, part the hoof and chew the cud. And from that point on He constantly revealed to me that He is the only Jew who we (Christians) claim to know, but we really did not know or do not know – His culture and what was special to Him. I always knew salvation was of the Jews but just overlooked it because I was never taught the depth of His heritage, and replacement theology had me blind.
I'm a stay at home mom so I would study for 8 hours or more a day and sometimes longer. At first my husband would come home and would be a little upset but the revelation was so good I couldn't get away. Many times I even wanted my husband to leave me alone. It was like I couldn't wait to spend time with my new lover. At any rate although my husband should have had my attention when he came home, I didn't. Weeks later, the Ruach started to reveal to him what He was showing me and so my husband would come home and we would start going through the scriptures together. It has been a blessing to us. Through my seeking to find Yah it caused my husband to come back to Him as well! That's my story! I will never go back to the way it used to be.
