Why is the Hebrew Roots Movement taking off so strongly? Does it have any measure of truth? Here are my thoughts of late.
HaShatan is always trying to stay in control. HaShatan will allow things to flourish if it suits his interests. HaShatan will often be in control of both sides of any conflict. The right hand and the left hand paths, for example.
There is some great truth that the Hebrew Roots Movement is uncovering, but HaShatan is still "in control" of the flow of things. He keeps a tight reign on "His Kingdom". HaShatan does not easily let people go from "His Kingdom".
YHWH of course is ultimately in control of all things. The wheat and the tares continue to grow side by side. The goats and the sheep mingle together. One of the biggest lies we believe is that the Kingdom is not available right now. If you are born again through Yeshua HaMashiach, then you are no longer a "resident" of "this world", you must die to self and be reborn into YHWH's Kingdom. This is represented in baptism. We are now residents and representatives of YHWH's Kingdom although we continue to live in "this world".
So back to the Hebrew Roots Movement. It is based on a lie, although there is truth in it that YHWH wants exposed. The Truth is that the Torah did not pass away and has not been done away with. In fact, as residents and representatives of YHWH's Kingdom here on earth, it is our responsibility to uphold our Constitution, which is written in the Torah.
However, "Hebrew Roots" tries to base "Christianity" on "Judaism". Judaism in it's current form did not even exist until around 200 CE with the writing of the Mishnah. A huge majority of Judaism was based on and around the existance of a temple (90%?) and once the temple was destroyed, Judaism had to reinvent itself. So saying that Christianity is based upon the foundation of Judaism has many flaws seeing as modern Judaism did not exist in it's current form until nearly 200 years after the time of Yeshua.
Judaism is based upon the Torah but modern Judaism is largely tradition of men. But at least Judaism remembers Torah. While Christianity does away with Torah. Christianity believes that the church replaces Israel and the Jewish people. They are both based on error.
Let's make an effort to dig into the biblical roots of the faith and not the Jewish or Hebraic roots. Let us keep the biblical feasts, the biblical sabbath, the biblical laws, commandments and statutes.
Let Israel come out of paganism and remember her roots and let Judah return to the pure milk of scripture.
Romans 11:16-18 If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
We must remember that the root IS NOT Judaism. Yeshua HaMashiach, who is and was the embodiment of Torah, is the root. The remnant among Judaism (natural) and Christianity (wild) are the branches. Saying otherwise is tantamount to saying that the church is rightfully built upon the rock of Peter and not the chief cornerstone which is Yeshua HaMashiach.
Ephesians 2:19-22 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
