EMUNAH

OUR EMUNAH (FAITH)

We at Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem and our Congregation: Kehila Elohei Kedem, follow the following guidelines of emunah (faith):

We believe that we are Jews by faith by the promise given to Abraham (Romans 4:9-11;) Galatians 3:29)), and strict observant of the Torah (Joshua 1:8), fulfilling all the commandments and ordinances and decrees given by “YHWH: the one true Elohim” (a single unit), urging others to comply with them.

1- Elohim: We believe in the one and only living Elohim. the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Ya’akov (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) the Creator of heaven and earth (Bereshit 1 and 2), who is eternally existent in a single unity revealed in the Shema: “Hear O Israel, Adonai is our Elohim, Adonai is one (echad) .” . We believe that the name, YHWH, derived from the Hebrew letters, Yod, Hey, Vav, Hey, is the covenantal name of the Holy One of Israel (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 11:1-2, Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 4:18-21, John 17:21-24). There is only one Elohim eternally existent and beside him there is no saviour. (Isaiah 43:10-11 ).

2- We believe the Law of Moses as a rule of life has been fulfilled in Messiah, but not eliminated. We believe the Torah is the instructions of a loving and gracious Father to His children. It is the perfect law that gives liberty. The Torah it is the loving instruction of how a redeemed people should live. The Torah was given through Moses to the covenant community of Israel. This Torah is the same for the native born of Israel, as it is for those who sojourn among them. The Torah is to be written on the hearts of New Covenant Believers. Honoring Torah is an act of love toward God and our fellow man. Yeshua kept His Fathers commandments and lived in His love. We are to walk as He walked. We are to obey YHWHs commandments and to hold to the testimony of Yeshua (Joshua 22:5, Exodus 12:49, Jeremiah 31:31-33, Hebrews 8:8-10, James 1:25, 1 John 2:3-6, 1 John 3:24, 1 John 5:3;Acts 21:24-26; Romans 6:14;8:2;10:4;14:1-23; 1 Corinthians 9:20; 2 Corinthians 3:1- 11; Ephesians 2:14 ).

3-We believe that Yeshua ben Yoseph  HaNotzri is Israel’s promised Mashiach (Isaiah 11), born of his biological father Yosef, of the lineage of Isai (Isaiah 11: 1-2): . By His life, death and resurrection, He fulfilled the messianic prophecies of the Tanack related to Messiah’s first coming. (Isa. 7:14, 9:6-7, 49:6, 53:1-12; Psa. 16:9-11)

His second coming in the air, as King, to receive the believers to Himself (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:1-6; I Corinthians. 15:51-57).

We Believe in the Ruach Elohim (Holy Spirit), was sent forth from the Father to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Messiah. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Messiah and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.

4-We believe in the 13 principles of Jewish faith

1.YHWH created and runs the world’s only did, does, and will do all the facts.
2.YHWH, does not make an eartly bodyl (Isaiah 40:18, 25), do not reach the scorporales influence, and nothing is comparable to Him.
3.That the Creator has no body and no form.
4.YHWH is the beginning and eternity (Deuteronomy 33:27).
5.YHWH is worth doing tefilah and no one to ask out of it.
6.All words of our prophets are true.
7.The prophecy of Moshe Rabbeinu is true (Numbers 12: 8) and he was the father of the prophets of all time (Exodus 25:22).
8.The Torah we have is the same that was given to Moshe Rabbeinu (Psalm 119: 18; Numbers 16:28).
9.That this Torah will not be changed and no other Almighty (Deuteronomy 13: 1).
10.YHWH knows everything the person does and knows all his thoughts (Jeremiah 32:19).
11.YHWH reward well those who fulfill their mitzvot and punishes those who transgress its precepts (Exodus 32:32).
12.That the Messiah will come. And although we hope every day delay arrival.
13.The dead will be resurrected when the will of the Almighty.

5-We believe that we are “the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 15:24; 10: 5-6).

6-We respect other religious currents, yet we are not ecumenical (2 Corinthians 6: 14-18), or inter-religious.

7-We express love and unconditional support to Israel and to all Jews, and recognize them as the chosen people of God (John 4:22). And We do not proselytize to the jewish people.

 Note: We respect and love to all those who, with sincere love, seek and follow Yeshua the Messiah, the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We are not Christians or evangelicals, nor Christians dress as Jews.
