"The Scriptures" (ISR)
I am a Nazarene or Messianic ("Christian") believer from a Reform Jewish background and am interested in healing in the name of Adonai our Lord: Creator, Spirit, and Word. I consider Rabbinical interpretations through the Talmud, Kabbalah, etc. to be valid, keeping Y'shua HaMashiach as my chief Rabbi, Light, and Guide.
Update January 2012: I am turning 40 though I don't feel it and the Lord has spoken to me and told me not to lean on my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). So as a Nazarene Jew I am told to follow Y'shua and not to be centered on teachings from the Kabbalah. But the Kabbalah does remain an excellent interpretation of the teachings, and Yehuda Berg actually has some excellent writings. What does this mean? Basically, I turn many of these teachings into a series of "don'ts" such as don't overreact to physical circumstances, don't skip the commandments of sharing and giving, etc. etc. Y'shua says "I am the Light..." (John 8:12), even the Kabbalah Centre is taking Him more and more seriously.
From March 2011: I found a wonderful page about the suffering servant at: http://www.menorah.org/tsmbj13.html and this page points out a Zohar interpretation of Isaiah 53. YHWH heals, please junk primal and other shamanistic therapies they destroy marriages and break families like mine!!!
