And to the angel of the congregation in Philadelphia write -- These things says He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the Key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens. I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name . . ."
"What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
MUCH EVERY WAY: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God."
Romans 3 shows how even the so called Torah-keepers, because they were so wrapped up in Talmud and man-made traditions, were convicted by Torah of sin, just as much as the Gentiles who were ignorant of Torah and also walked in sin.
But faith, a faith which ESTABLISHES the Torah, through YahShua, enables both Jew and Gentile to keep every jot and tittle of Torah. We are not under "the deeds of the law of sin and death" or the condemnation Torah brings on the law-breakers. We now keep every jot and titttle of Torah through our faith In Messiah. Jew and Gentile, just as it was in Exodus 12, can both keep Torah and enjoy doing so, through the grace YahShua provides.
Yet, in the above opening verses, we discover something even MORE profound. The chief Apostle declares that there IS A HUGE, HUGE, HUGE advantage to be Jew and to get physically circumcised!!!!! And why? Because unto them were the oracles of Yah given!!!! HallaluYAH!
Oh how this completely obliterates replacement theology and anti-semitism that is rooted in so much of the pagan christian gentile pig churches. We understand that EVERYONE, whether Jew or Gentile, should get physically circumcised and basically start becoming like a Jew, in order to gain the advantage of those who received the oracles of YHVH. When I say, "become like a Jew", I mean in the sense of keeping every jot and tittle of the Torah in both spirit and letter.
So come my pagan Gentile christians -- shed your pig-like behavior and start walking in THE ADVANTAGE OF BEING JEWISH!!!
