Karat, Cut-off: Is Not Forever;
If not for the crucifixion of Yeshua AND his resurrection there would no Churchianity. Churchianity was the necessary vehicle that brought Tanakh to every corner of the world wherever lost sheep have settled.
For I will give the command, and I will shake the people of Israel among all the nations
as grain is shaken in a sieve,
and not a pebble will reach the ground.
If not for the Church the world would not know about sin. Without knowledge of Sin, and of the Creator God who offers eternal life through marriage, there is no hope of salvation for anyone but the Jewish People.
Yeshua suffered death on a cross at least partially to fulfill prophecy (as the Jewish believers at the time understood it). Fulfilling Prophecy and then rising from death produced a huge banner waving through history! (Like the bronze Seraph in Bamidbar) If his death and resurrection did no more than AMAZE enough people to gain believers to eventually create Churchianity, it would be sufficient; dayanu. His command go to: GO to the LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL. (Jews are NOT Lost!)
When Moses was with Go* the people built themselves a Golden Calf. This sustained them until Moses’ return. When Yeshua returns the Golden Calf, the Church will be overturned. Those who have heard with their ears and knocked and entered into Beit Yisrael will be spared. But all who bow before the Golden Calf will be left out. The Golden Calf is the WIDE PATH. Narrow is the path of the wise. Those who would sell the entire Golden Edifice of Churchianity and buy the humble field with a priceless pearl in it will see the Kingdom. Outside there will be MUCH wailing and gnashing of teeth. It is Beit Israel and Beit Israel alone that will be in the world to come. Jews thus do NOT need Yeshua to become engrafted since they are already in! Lost (or formerly lost) Israelites and the few from the nations and Jews (without Karet) are to be in the world to come.
WHAT OF JEWS WHO HAVE COMMITTED KARET? THIS WEEK’S PARSHA HAS A VERSE THAT CAN BE READ IN A TOTLLY DIFFERENT WAY FOR THE ANSWER!
EX. 12:15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel.
HEBREW:שִׁבְעַ֤ת יָמִים֙ מַצֹּ֣ות תֹּאכֵ֔לוּ אַ֚ךְ בַּיֹּ֣ום הָרִאשֹׁ֔ון תַּשְׁבִּ֥יתוּ שְּׂאֹ֖ר מִבָּתֵּיכֶ֑ם כִּ֣י ׀ כָּל־אֹכֵ֣ל חָמֵ֗ץ וְנִכְרְתָ֞ה הַנֶּ֤פֶשׁ הַהִוא֙ מִיִּשְׂרָאֵ֔ל מִיֹּ֥ום הָרִאשֹׁ֖ן עַד־יֹ֥ום הַשְּׁבִעִֽי׃
Change emphasis: ” … for whosoever eateth chumetz will be cut off from the first day to the seventh day.
New International Version (NIV)
4 A thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
It is said that the world will last 6,000 days, and then will be the Sabbath Millennium.
REV.20:1 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for A THOUSAND YEARS. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the THOUSAND YEARS were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.
7 WHEN THE THOUSAND YEARS ARE OVER Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
KERET IS NOT FOREVER! After the 7th day a judgement will occur. These are all Israelites. They will have the option of having their sins washed in the blood of “grapes” of Yeshua. There will be no doubt at that time that Yeshua is LORD.
