About MVHM

Not everyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," will enter the kingdom of heaven, 
but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 
Many will say to me on that day, 
"Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy and cast out demons and perform many miracles in your name?" 
Then I will tell them, very truly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

Matthew 7:21-23

Are you a Hebrew?   Do you follow Messiah?

He is a Jew who is one inwardly, 
whose circumcision is that of the heart,
in the spirit and not in the letter of the Law. 
(written code / the Law, or legalism, nor flesh / through genetics. Not by works, alone, but by faith.)
Romans 2:29
 

                                                                   Some claim to be "Jew", or Hebrew, but are not.  (Revelations 3:9)


BEHOLD!  OUT FROM ZION SHINES FORTH THE LIGHT OF GOD'S PERFECT BEAUTY!

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given unto mankind by which we can be saved.

Acts 4:12

Revelations of the Holy Scriptures open up in fullness within truly recognizing our Hebrew roots, history and Judaic knowledge. 

     

     PSALMS 50

1 The Mighty One, God YHWH,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, perfection of beauty,
God shines forth.

3 Our God comes; he does not keep silence;a
before him is a devouring fire,
around him a mighty tempest.
4 He calls to the heavens above
and to the earth, that he may judge his people:
5 “Gather to me my faithful ones,
who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
6 The heavens declare his righteousness,
for God himself is judge!
Selah

7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
O Israel, I will testify against you.
I am God, your God.
8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you;
your burnt offerings are continually before me.
9 I will not accept a bull from your house
or goats from your folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine,
the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the hills,
and all that moves in the field is mine.

12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
for the world and its fullness are mine.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,b
and perform your vows to the Most High,
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

16 But to the wicked God says:
“What right have you to recite my statutes
or take my covenant on your lips?
17 For you hate discipline,
and you cast my words behind you.
18 If you see a thief, you are pleased with him,
and you keep company with adulterers.

19 “You give your mouth free rein for evil,
and your tongue frames deceit.
20 You sit and speak against your brother;
you slander your own mother’s son.
21 These things you have done, and I have been silent;
you thought that Ic was one like yourself.
But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you.

22 “Mark this, then, you who forget God,
lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!
23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who orders his way rightly
I will show the salvation of God!”

 WHAT IS A MESSIANIC? 

 The simplest answer to this question is that we are true Judeo-Christians.
Christianity stems from the root of Judaism.
Judaism is the foundation of Christianity.
However, God is the founder of Judaism
and the seed of it is the Messiah. 

There are Messianic-Jews and gentile-Messianics.
All one in faith in one God and Yahswah is Messiah.
("Jesus" is "Christ")

What most separates us from other "Christian" religions
is that we believe in following our Hebrew Messiah
and, therefore, "the Law", and also do not recognize/celebrate secular holidays, but only keep the Holy Days of God,
including the God ordained Feasts of the Lord.

One might be very surprised to discover that these Festivals were and are a prophetic foreshadowing of "things to come", all directly pertaining and pointing to the Messiah.
This is clearly true and half was fulfilled by his first advent (arrival) in the flesh, while the second is a representation of his "second coming" return!

Thus, there are the Spring and Autumn HARVEST festivals.

The more you study, the more you will realize that secular holidays branch from paganism, directly from out of Babylon.
God cries out to his children,
"Get out of Babylon, my people!" 

Jerimiah 51:45 & Revelations 18:4

"All of us are baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body ~ whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free ~ as we are all given one Spirit to drink.

... so that there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave, nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in the Messiah, Yashua."

1 Corinthians 12:13

Galatians 3:28

 This is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, so they become one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

 

 THIS IS A WEDDING INVITATION TO THE WEDDING OF THE LAMB OF A GOD!

 Ultimately, you and all are being invited as a guest or to become the body of the Bride of Messiah.

 MANY ARE INVITED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN
Matthew 22:14

ABOUT MVHM

Messianic Victory Harvest Mission
This website was originally built for a Messianic ministry.
It was provided for them freely, out of the love and generosity of my heart.
However, even while not requested to do so, they dropped this site.
 They wished to keep their more simple, "original" site
and had a member that was willing to maintain it for free.
Not wishing my work to go to waste, i took over MVHM, making it my own, in order to salvage my work and to give it greater purpose.
Although very disappointed and a bit hurt, no hard feeling harbored at all, please understand.
MVHM is a mission, not a ministry.

ABOUT ME

Religious Beginnings

Born and raised in a small mid-west town and protestant / Southern Baptist.
Studied, along with parents, with the "Jehovah's Witnesses", at age 14.
While appreciated several aspect of that religion and they showing me how to study the Holy Bible,
I never could accept some aspects of their teaching, or doctrines,
especially those relating to prophecy.
I saw their predictions fail and history exposed.

My dad was once a lay preacher and created some controversy with preachers who were of the opinion that Revelations was not meant to be taught, read, discussed, interpreted or understood. My dad's response was that God wouldn't have had it written if not meant to be explored and understood. Yet, that really was the mind-set back in those days, only decades ago. He even predicted that the Berlin Wall would someday fall within our lifetime, when no one could or would believe or dare accept that notion. However, it was long before that OR that event came to fruition, when he influenced me to take interest in prophecy.  The JWs just spurred my interest further. I just could not connect with the idea that prophecies revolved around mostly and/or only themselves. Now THAT IS a ridiculous notion! By the time I was 15, going on 16, i recall thinking much about the dilemma of denominationalism and division between "Jews" and gentiles / Christians and began praying about this. It just seemed that everyone had everything to gain and nothing to lose by being able to know what the Jews believed and KNEW, however naive that might seem, now. Still yet, it holds much truth. Little did I know that within a year, that the modern day Messianic movement began with renewed fervor. Of that fact, i learned much later.

Not until 1998, while living in the St. Louis, Missouri area, did i happen to come across my very first discovery of the Messianic movement upon the internet.
Before I get to that, though, i wish to impart that in 1994 i met a new age "guru", as i called him. He was rather insightful, having a lot to say about religion, of course, and had some interesting THINGS to say. Enough to intrigue me. But please do not get me wrong. I plainly stated to him that he would NEVER get me to deny the divinity of "Jesus", before I went along with befriending him, only in order to know what the enemy thinks and believes. Sound selfish, like i was not going to witness about "Christ" to him? Not at all. He simply would not listen to or hear of it, period! So, I wanted to know what he knew and why he believed the THINGS he and the like of his ilk believed, and so strongly. Details aside, being MANY THINGS, i did learn A LOT! In fact, my learning took off like a rocket ship!
The more he imparted, the more i wanted to know and investigated, spending hours researching and investigating. It was very much like i had gone "underground".


To say the very least, I learned their new-age buzz words and phrases, able to detect a new ager just by how they speak.
More importantly, i did learn how they think, what they believe and how a non-religious religion, or "movement", could be so loosely disorganized, yet so solidly united. Let us just say that they had one, common purpose; To cause non-unity among ALL Jewish and Christian religions, by dispelling those religions with their own SPELL, so to speak, as "ignorant" and "weak". FAR from the actual truth, but not completely incorrect, either. After all, our Judeo-Christian religions have done a very bad-GOOD job of doing this to themselves / ourselves. However, on of the most interesting things that i learned from this experience is that the "new age movement" claims to embrace ALL religions, excluding those two exceptions, with only one other, inclusive exception, being Mormonism.
That should tell you something!


For another, i had a knack, which the guru was envious of, for being highly intuitive.
Armed with this natural, God given gift, i can step into a bookstore and pick up a book that is relevant to what i need to know, or be taught, or become "aware" of.
"AWARENESS" is one of the biggest, most used words for new-agers. 
So, one day, going into one of those well known mega bookstores, and into the new-age section, i spot this book, pick it up and open it up to a single page, 
spotting a single sentence. Something else that has often happened to me, even in the "Bible".
I had been wondering, at the time, recently, about some specific subject and how new-agers would ever deal with (my guru "friend" now moved away), in particular. And there it was! Right before me, THEIR explanation for the rapture!
In fact, it was not only the first such explanation that i had ever seen or heard of, but the very first, if not ONLY ONE, ever offered!
~
It went something like this, much paraphrased from memory;
WE, the naive or not attuned believers would be taken out of this world, away from this planet, to be sent to live upon another planet to continue to suffer the status quo of struggle with suffering human, physical existence, while THEY, on the other hand would be CHANGED / transformed, along with the "paradigm shift" transformation of Earth, left behind to help restore the Earth and make it a peaceful place of paradise and perfect provision.

So, there you go!  WE cannot win! No matter what, they have some answer to resolve any surprises, even if worshipping the false or anti-Messiah!

Back to the future past.
So enthralled to learn that the Messianic movement was alive, well and thriving, i volunteered my time, money and resources to promote the upcoming event,
"Israel's Title Deed to the Land", which would show the right of believers, Jew and gentile, to inherit the land between the Nile and Euphrates rivers, reveal the evidence for the Red Sea crossing, prove the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and more, via the ministry of Messianic rabbi MICHAEL JOHN ROOD!

I can NOT express just how very much excited that i was!
I just could not hardly wait!

It was, indeed super impressive.
Five hours of videos, photos and hands-on evidence and proof.

However, all said and done, even presented a free, autographed book for my work, i was not so impressed with the man.
( More about that, in a bit.)
Still, i left HIGH on the Messianic trail and Messiah's pathway.
I had finally found my prayer answered and my spiritual identity, i felt, within a common community.
A whole new, entirely different, life began to unfold before and within me. 
One truly of the Spirit of God.
Yes, unlike anything that i had ever felt or before experienced.
My prayer had been answered,.. i thought, so believed.
TRUE, but not without some great disappointments.


ABOUT MY EXPERIENCES WITHIN THE MESSIANIC COMMUNITY

PROBLEM

What i have seen within the Messianic community, at least in my area, is disunity.
A lack of genuine love, with a focus upon Messiah.
Instead there is a focus mostly upon Torah / Law.
( I am not referring to every congregation. )
This gives way to a judgmental and sometimes unfriendly and/or intolerant atmosphere.
I have even witnessed infighting over how worship services should be conducted.
Some have dropped out, while others are practicing worship and studies at home.

We are a house divided !

This is NOT the true Messianic movement.
The Messianic movement is a movement of the Spirit -
a latter day pouring out of a portion of the Holy Spirit.

Instead, many if not most have fallen into the trap of going to services,
studying at their place of worship, having their own congregations AND rulership and rules, 
becoming nothing more than a religion and nothing less that denominationalized, 
instead of missionaries with a mission to teach others of the Messiah.
Most importantly, we should be focused upon how Messiah fulfills prophecy and the foreshadowing Holy Feasts.
And, yes, his and our God's love for all of mankind, through sacrifice and repentance.


The moral to this story is...

1. Without LOVE we are nothing.

2. Focus upon MESSIAH.

3. Stop gossiping!

4. Stop judging.

5. Stop divisions within the Body of Messiah...

for GOD'S SAKE!


We SHOULD be the congregation of Philadelphia, not Laodecia!!!

SOLUTION

Messianics need a unifying code of conduct for cohesive worship services, which is strict without being rigid.
Messiah's yoke is light and not to be made, by man, into a burdensome stone, once again.
We need order, rather than man-made doctrines, or organized religion.
We must also be an outreach mission for this movement.
One in which all others know what to expect.
