FEBRUARY 2015


This month I am having the privilege and joy of teaching the New Members Foundation Class at the local Messianic Jewish congregation that our family joined last year. It is a great blessing to welcome over two dozen new people to the assembly, who with their own unique and distinct backgrounds, have been led to become members. About a quarter of the new members class is Jewish, from both Ashkenazic and Sephardic backgrounds, with the balance coming from places such as Mozambique, South Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America—as well as a wide variety of locations from across the United States. From the testimonies of these people, the Holy One of Israel is busy, drawing together a chorus of unique voices from every tongue, tribe, and nation, who in His timing will be collectively singing praises to the Lamb of God:

“And they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth’” (Revelation 5:9-10).

This modern-day Kingdom of priests from a mixed multitude, who will reign with the Messiah Yeshua, is a company of Believers who will find themselves fulfilling the mandate issued by Moses, right after the Ancient Israelites were liberated from bondage of Egypt:

“‘Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel” (Exodus 19:5-6).

When Moses originally issued this if/then proposition from the Almighty, the majority of those who left Egypt were ethnic Israelites. But as we decisively learn further in the course of Israel’s history, after being released from slavery to the Egyptians, Israel was to become a “servant” to the Holy One in order to accomplish His will. This was primarily to be a “light to the nations” of Planet Earth, so that God’s salvation would extend to people groups around the world. The famed word of the Prophet Isaiah decreed,

“He said to Me, ‘You are My Servant, Israel, in Whom I will show My glory.’ But I said, ‘I have toiled in vain, I have spent My strength for nothing and vanity; yet surely the justice due to Me is with the Lord, and My reward with My God.’ And now says the Lord, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel might be gathered to Him (For I am honored in the sight of the Lord, and My God is My strength), He says, ‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make you a light of the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth’” (Isaiah 49:3-6).

As you can imagine, teaching, on a subject matter that has been so near and dear to our hearts for twenty years, is quite a blessing—because we are reaffirming through recollection of many Scriptures passages what we have believed and taught. With much of what I have been directing in the new members class, I have written an article entitled, Rehearsing the Truths.” This article takes a look at a number of Bible passages from the Tanakh and Apostolic Writings, which should embolden the resolve of each of us to pursue a Messianic lifestyle, and be committed to what the Lord is doing through the Messianic movement. As the testimony of the Scriptures categorically confirm, the Messianic movement is indeed an end-time move of the Holy Spirit, to bring His people together, with the ultimate goal of reinforcing a remnant of saints for the inevitable return of the Messiah. It is my prayer that you will be as blessed with reading this overview as I have been encouraged to write it!

We continue to need your support of our efforts to publish Messianic-oriented, written materials, which we believe are being used by the Lord to accelerate the maturation process of the many individuals and families being drawn into Messianic assemblies of all kinds around the globe. We know from personal experience that many of the articles, books, and commentaries that we have written and published, have benefitted many with a balanced, loving, and scholarly approach. Much more still needs to be done. The Theological Defense Trust and the Prison Ministry Free Book Fund both need partners like you, to invest in the work of the Kingdom that never ceases! Do join with us, by committing to a monthly contribution, regardless of amount!

I pray that this issue of OIM News will bolster your faith, and that you will be able to fight the good fight of faith, helping to advance His Kingdom on Earth, until the Messianic restoration of all things…

Blessings and shalom,

Mark Huey

Today, our featured publication is the commentary Philippians for the Practical Messianic. Philippians is my (JKM's) favorite book of the Bible. When we consider this letter, we get a real look at Paul when he is at his best--and when circumstances regarding a local community of Messiah followers are not overly-negative.

Still, Philippians has many key points to teach us as Messianic Believers. The deepness of what is often called the Carmen Christi hymn of Philippians 2:5-11 will keep us occupied enough! This is a letter where one undeniably sees Yeshua the Messiah and what He has accomplished as being quite central to a life of faith and trust. Philippians is enriching, but also spiritually and ideologically challenging in many places.

In tonight's study of 1 Corinthians 2:7-16 we will be encountering the theme of "the mind of Messiah." How did Yeshua the Messiah think and act? How different was Yeshua's style of ministry and service, compared to others in the First Century?

We hear much in the Messianic movement about the "Hebrew mindset" versus the "Greek mindset." This seldom ever includes any examinations or quotations from Jewish or classical literature. This 1 Corinthians study is, actually, referencing Jewish and classical literature--and as we have seen, the good news of Israel's Messiah will subvert all human ideologies and philosophies. The wisdom of God is foolishness to the world, because it forces men and women to be completely reliant upon Him for any meaning of true worth.

Many of you have been looking for a good, Messianic Bible version to use in your reading and studies, and have been unable to find it. The Complete Jewish Bible, by David Stern, while a mainstay, is often too paraphrased for people. This often leaves people sticking with their standard Jewish or Christian versions, or turning to an interesting cadre of Sacred Name Bibles that have altered the public domain KJV.

The newly released Messianic Jewish Family Bible--Tree of Live Version, should be a nice welcome to what has been witnessed. The TLV is soon to become one of the major Messianic Bible versions, at least alongside the CJB. I (JKM) recommend that you get a copy of it for your personal reading and studies:

This past week I completed the fifth and final section for the five-chapter mini-book, Shabbat: Sabbath for Messianic Believers, a planned excerpt from the much larger Messianic Sabbath Helper, due out later in 2015. This publication will fill a major gap, as we have not had a resource available on Shabbat since we started our paperback printing project in 2009.

Shabbat: Sabbath for Messianic Believers, should be available sometime subsequent to Passover.
