Belief

The Ministry of Ezra Biblical Resources believe that the Messianic Israel or Hebrew Roots Messianics involves believers agreeing with the Apostle Paul that through faith in the shed blood of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah of Israel, they no longer are Gentiles, without Elohim and without hope being aliens from citizenship in the nation of Israel, and cut off from Israel’s covenants of promise with YHVH. Instead, they, along with their believing Jewish brethren, are Israel, the seed of Abraham (Rom. 4:16; 8:9–11; Gal. 3:7,9,14,28–29), through Yeshua and have become the One New Man (Eph. 2) where there is no longer Jew or Gentile (Gal. 3:28; Col. 3:11), but only Israel, the beloved bride of the Messiah (2 Cor. 11:2), the called out ones or Saints, which is the body of Yeshua (1 Cor. 12:27), and as such have become adopted as spiritual children of the living creator, YHVH Elohim (Rom. 8:15-23; 9:4; Gal. 4:4; Eph. 1:5). The formation of the one new man through Yeshua is the reunification of the two sticks of Israel (Ezek. 37:15–28), the establishment of the kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6), the raising of the fallen tabernacle of David (Amos 9:11; Acts 15:16), the restitution of all things (Acts 3:21) and the formation of the bride of Yeshua the Messiah (Rev. 19:7–9).

We believe in one Elohim, blessed is his name (Yehovah), as he has revealed himself in the Scriptures. “Hear, O Israel, Yehovah is our Elohim, Yehovah is One.” (Deuteronomy 6:4, Mark 12:29). We believe that the intended meaning of this word “one” as found in Hebrew “echad”, means a “composite unity.”

We believe that Yeshua is the son of Elohim, the Messiah, the eternal one in whom all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and who is the word of Elohim, the living Torah who became flesh and dwelt among us, and whose glory we beheld, the glory of the uniquely begotten son of Elohim, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-14; Colossians 2:9)

We believe the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) of Elohim leads people in Spirit and Truth.  The Holy Spirit comforts, teaches, indwells and empowers all whom he regenerates. (Eph.1:13)

We believe that Messiah Yeshua’s death and resurrection accomplished the atonement of sins for all who would repent and place their faith in Him. Whoever trusts in Elohim, and in His Holy Sent One, Messiah Yeshua, is made a new creation in Messiah, indwelt by the Spirit of Elohim, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness, rebellion, death from sin into the kingdom of (Torah) light, truth, righteousness and eternal life. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5, 6; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

We believe that all people who trust in Yeshua are grafted into Israel, granting them the ability and blessing of obeying the Torah (YHVH-Yeshua’s Teachings), having had it written upon their hearts as participants of the Renewed (New) Covenant. (Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:33)

We believe in the resurrection of both the wicked and the righteous. Those who have repented of their sins and trusted in Messiah will be resurrected unto life and those who have died without having repented of their sins and believed in Messiah will be eternally separated from Elohim. (Romans 1:18; I Corinthians 15; Revelation 20-21)

We teach and obey all the Torah commandments that are possible for us to obey today such as the Sabbath, Holy Festivals, and the laws of clean and unclean meats, etc.( Lev.23:1-44;Lev.:11)

We believe that a great move of the Almighty YHVH Elohim is in motion on the earth today bringing about “the restoration of all things” before Messiah can return (Act 3:21). This involves the Jews coming to know Messiah Yeshua — the Living Torah — Christians repenting (Act 3:19-20) and turning to YHVH’s instructions in righteousness — the Written Torah, and all becoming one in Yeshua the Messiah.

We believe with complete faith as the Messiah came once as Messiah Ben Yosef (the Suffering Servant) in the person of Yeshua of Nazareth, even so Messiah Yeshua will return as Messiah ben David (the Conquering King). Yeshua will return to reign as King of Kings and Lord of lords for 1000 years, in his millennial kingdom here on this earth.  And though he may delay, nevertheless we anticipate every day that he will return and prepare ourselves accordingly. (read Isaiah 53)

We believe with complete faith that the prophecy of Moses our teacher, peace upon him, was the father of the prophets — those who preceded him and those who followed him until the first coming of the Messiah Yeshua of whom Moses prophesied. (Deu.18:15-18)

We believe Yeshua is to be our example on how to walk in the word (Torah). Yeshua’s sacrifice is the only means of salvation from the law of sin and death, as opposed to using Yeshua as an excuse for declaring some of the word is destroyed or made void.

Our obedience (not sinning) to his law (Torah) is rewarded as blessings. Our crowns and rewards at the judgment will directly relate to our practice and obedience of his word. (Isa. 40:10; Isa 62:11-12; Rev.22:12)
