"See The Spinner" 1
Today, 6:30 am a bright and chipper 3+ year old granddaughter with her new toy encounters her Grandfather enjoying his morning coffee in the kitchen. In a short minute I realize that this is not just some toy! Set it spinning, and it just keeps going, so much so that I had to see for myself if it had some sort of power source. Nope! Now I am fully awake. We have a great time until it was time for all to meet their daily schedule. Alone in the house I went to morning prayer.
For weeks now in morning prayer and on my 7.6 mile Walk ‘n Pray, there have been a veritable flock of things presented to write about, so many that it has been confusing. What I mean is that it is like trying to pick out all the details of each individual bird as the flock flies past! For weeks I have prayed for clarity! Just so also this morning as I prayed for clarity and then I heard
–The-VOICE- clearly say:
“See The Spinner!”
Just like the spinner, there are multiple topics spinning around a center axis, and this “spinner” seems to have some hidden power source.
So this morning it became very clear that I am to write my personal story (witness) of being led out of “Replacement Theology”. There are so many spokes spinning on a central axis of Replacement Theology! All will be written in a series as I am led. Let me start with a simple story with profound implications.
Five years ago I was riding with a good friend who is a Brother ( B’nei Ya’akov). He was driving and we had a 1.5 hour drive. All of a sudden, in the private safety of his car, he was asking me all kinds of questions about “Jesus”. With each answer I would steer the conversation back to “Y’shua”, but my friend kept taking us back to “Jesus”. Finally I said “Y____ you keep taking us back to “Jesus” and I keep taking you to “Y’shua”. Let me ask you a question. Would your Messiah tell you to break Shabbat and instead go to Church on Sunday?” There was a long silence as he kept driving at 60 mile per hour. Finally, with emphasis, he said one word: “NO!” With that one word he hit the brakes and came to a stop on the side of the interstate at night with snow fields all around and very little traffic. We had a very long heart to heart talk about his JEWISH MESSIAH, Y’shua The Messiah of Israel. Praise YAH. We had broken through the reasonable cultural bias.
The denotation of “Jesus” is built on a foundation of “Replacement Theology”.
The connotation of “Jesus” is built on a negative 2000 year history for Israel.
How do we break through all of the negative denotations and connotations? Only with sincere soul searching, true understanding of Scripture, careful review of tradition, all supernaturally led by
The Supernatural Power of The Ruach HaKodesh.
To be written
“Being led out of Replacement Theology – a torturous lifelong search"
Malachi 3: (ISR98)
6. “For I am יהוה, I shall not change, and you, O sons of Ya‘akov, shall not come to an end.
Denotation is a translation of a sign to its meaning, precisely to its literal meaning, more or less like dictionaries try to define it. Denotation is sometimes contrasted to connotation, which includes associated meanings. The denotational meaning of a word is perceived through visible concepts, whereas connotational meaning evokes sensible attitudes towards the phenomen
A connotation is a commonly understood cultural or emotional association that some word or phrase carries, in addition to its explicit or literal meaning, which is its denotation. A connotation is frequently described as either positive or negative, with regard to its pleasing or displeasing emotional connection. For example, a stubborn person may be described as being either strong-willed or pig-headed; although these have the same literal meaning (stubborn), strong-willed connotes admiration for the level of someone's will (a positive connotation), while pig-headed connotes frustration in dealing with someone (a negative connotation).
Help us to study The Word and be spiritually prepared!
Having eyes to see and ears to hear!
