Do you have an errant Messianic or Hebrew roots person in your life that you pray for? Well, here is exactly how you can pray for them!! I think I can promise you, with full assurance, that God will answer this prayer!!
First, a little background.
I am one of those who Christendom perceives to be errant, so, feel free to pray this very prayer for me as well… I try to the best of my abilities and by the leading of the Spirit to be obedient to God’s ways as expressed in the Torah. I also firmly hold to my faith in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. By traditional Christendom I am at best, confused and at worst, LOST! So, if you pray this for me, I will not be offended! In fact, I will thank you!
Here is the deal. A couple weeks ago, someone wrote me asking for help with a passage from 2 Corinthians 3 about the veil of Moses and the hardening of hearts and minds. I sent him a few pages concerning this passage from JK McKee’s The New Testament Validates Torah ( 2 Cor 3 by JK McKee ). Then, this morning, I read an excellent post on The Barking Fox which again discusses this very passage while commenting on a short teaching video about the Veil by 119 Ministries.
And, the combination of it all got me thinking… Here is how you can pray for me and any other errant Messianic:
- Do NOT pray that they see things the way you do! You may not be exactly right.
- DO pray that any veil, blindness or dullness be removed that they understand the fullness of Truth and Scripture!
- DO pray EXACTLY the same prayer for yourself with an open heart. (This is very important!)
I think that we can agree that our Father desires that we walk in fulness of Truth, and we can probably agree that none of us has all the answers perfectly. That said, if we honestly and humbly come before Him on behalf of our brothers and ourselves, NOT asking that He make them think like ourselves, but rather that He bring BOTH of us to the center of Truth, then we are praying rightly for our brothers!!
That is how you pray for the Messianic/Hebrew roots (nut case) in your life. I.e., let the Father sort it out, not by making them like you, but by leading each of us in ALL truth.
