Mizrahi-Ethiopian Judaism’s official position on the righteous amongst the gentiles based on their righteous works as opposed to what they believe theological wise
One thing for sure, it’s not what you believe in this hour that will save you, it’s what you do & how you are living & how you treat others via works that will determine your righteousness…
RIGHTEOUS WORKS IS GREATER THAN FAITH/BELIEF!!
Habbakuk 2:4 “See, he whose being is not upright in him is puffed up(herniated). But the righteous one lives by his faithfulness.”
In Hebrew “faith/belief is word is word “Emun”, which is a mental state of being. basically hope.
Faithfulness is the Hebrew word “is the Hebrew word “Emunah”, which when faith has substance added to it via works and hope becomes evidence via consistent lifestyle. It is what is means when one is “full of faith”.
This is the source of science, as well as where the book of Hebrews in the New Testament, gets its ideas from Judaism’s Prophetic understanding of Works and faith.
Hebrews 11:1 “And faith(literal: faithfulness) is the substance of things hope for, the proof of what is not seen.Heb 11:2 For by this the elders obtained witness. “
In other words in order to have true faith, it has to have substance above and beyond HOPE(belief mental wise).
And you have to have PROOF in what is NOT seen.
Evidence and Proof: The same equation of how science operates on theories and hypothesis. A theory does not become fact nor truth until there is evidence and proof!!!
Here the Greek translation made an effort to align with Jewish Law & prophets. If you do not have WORKS & cannot prove or show and manifest your faithfulness in action, then what you are following is religion aka Theories, not Kingdom lifestyle aka “Culture”..
That is why Judaism is a divine culture that has a faith system and Christianity is a religion with dogmatic ideologies and the two have almost nothing in common. Judaism’s foundation is rooted in what we do with ourselves in a holistic manner as well as how we treat others & take care of the earth we were entrusted, while Christianity’s main focus is in who one believes in and accepting and rejecting people, even their own, based on creeds & tenets. Torah Jews are holistic in what we do, Christians define being holy on what they believe & refrain from doing. Jews are guided by the Ruwah HaQodesh(Holistic Spirit, Spirit of Holiness), while Christians are guided by the Ruwah Dybukk(Holy Ghost, Spirit of Death/Dead).
Mishle (Proverbs 1:20, 23), “Chockimah(proper noun) calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the broad places…… Pro 1:23 “Turn at my reproof. See, I pour out my spirit on you, I make my words known to you1”.
Ezekiel 11:19 “And I shall give them one heart, and put a new Spirit within you. And I shall take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, Eze 11:20 so that they walk in My laws, and guard My right-rulings, and shall do them. And they shall be My people and I shall be their Elohim.
This is why Christians produce destruction, death, poverty, war, pestilence, tyranny, suffering, cultural genocide & colonialism everywhere they exist & why they are the #1 destroyers of the planet via pollution, industrialism, capitalism, mass slaughter of animals and could care less about climate change, as their minds are focused on leaving earth, while the Jewish mind is focused on saving, caring for and preserving the earth……….
Jews are faithful to the Torah Covenant, Christians are without Torah and are lawless(i.e. like Antifa & BLM), thus their belif has no legitimate work in a fundamental understanding. Yet still, there are a remnant of Christians who will be declared right, as Elah calls them one of the righteous amongst the gentiles for those who do work charities and are true humanitarians and do right by others via their righteous works… Their theology in Jesus will have no bearing whatsoever. Being outcasts, it will be their works that will declare them as Just before Adonai Yahwah Elah:
Mic 4:5 For all the peoples walk, each one in the name of his god but we walk in the Name of יהוה our Elohim forever and ever1.
Mic 4:6 “In that day,” declares יהוה, “I gather the lame, and I bring together the outcast and those whom I have afflicted. Mic 4:7 “And I shall make the lame a remnant, and the outcast a strong nation. And יהוה shall reign over them in Mount Tsiyon1, from now on and forever.
So yes, people who worship foreign deities & live other cultures will be saved from amongst the gentiles, as their belief will not be the main factor in their righteousness. Their works and lifestyle & behavioral habits will be the ultimate final factor in them inheriting the Eternal Edenic Civilization.
Those who have religion, rituals, and faith/belief without righteous works and faithfulness will not be declared just before Elah. for faith alone cannot save anyone. Thus belief in Jesus is mute.
Faith Without Works Is Dead
Ya’akob(aka James) 2:14 My brothers, what use is it for anyone to say he has belief but does not have works? This belief is unable to save him.
Jas 2:15 And if a brother or sister is naked and in need of daily food,Jas 2:16 but one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” but you do not give them the bodily needs, what use is it?
Jas 2:17 So also belief, if it does not have works, is in itself dead.
Jas 2:18 But someone might say, “You have belief, and I have works.” Show me your belief without your works, and I shall show you my belief by my works.
Jas 2:19 You believe that Elohim is one. You do well. The demons also believe – and shudder! Jas 2:20 But do you wish to know, O foolish man, that the belief without the works is dead?
Ironically both the Book of Hebrews & Yaakob(James) give examples of works/faithfulness Emunah after they explain what true faith is in alignment with the Torah & Jewish Prophets.
But when you have religious brainwashing without reading comprehension, deception gets to be the rule of law.
In ending, to wrap all of the above up in a gift wrap for you:
Isaiah 45:22 “Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am Ělah, and there is none else.
Isa 45:23 “I have sworn by Myself, a word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, so that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue swear.
Isa 45:24 “One shall say, ‘Only in יהוה do I have righteousness and strength’ – he comes to Him. And all those displeased with Him shall be put to shame.
Isa 45:25 “In יהוה all the seed of Yisra’ĕl shall be declared JUST/RIGHT and boast. ”
Now compare that to the NT misquote:
Phillippians 2: 9-11 “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Not only does that contradict Isaiah 45 as to who every knee shall bow & every tongue swear/confess,
but it also contradicts:
Isaiah 42:8 “I am יהוה, that is My Name, and My GLORY I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols.
Isaiah 44:6 “Thus said יהוה, Sovereign of Yisra’ĕl, and his Redeemer, יהוה of hosts, ‘I am the First and I am the Last, besides Me there is no Elohim.
Isa 44:7 ‘And who is like Me? Let him call and declare it, and lay it before Me, since I appointed the everlasting people. And the events that are coming and those that do come, let them declare these to them. “
Isaiah 45:21 “Declare and bring near, let them even take counsel together. Who has announced this from of old? Who has declared it from that time? Is it not I, יהוה? And there is no mighty one besides Me, a righteous Ělah and a Saviour, there is none besides Me.”
Ironically Romans 14:11-12 attempts to actually quote the Jewish Prophet Isaiah in contradiction to Philippians:
It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'”
Lord & God are English/Anglo-Saxon deities adopted from Babylon that replaced the names Yahwah & Elohim to deceive people.
They say, “if you want to keep black people ignorant, keep knowledge in a book”
That equally extends to most Christians:
Jeremiah 31:35 Thus said יהוה, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – יהוה of hosts is His Name:
Jer 31:36 “If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares יהוה, “then the seed of Yisra’ĕl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.”
Jer 31:37 Thus said יהוה, “If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ĕl for all that they have done,” declares יהוה.
Your own Messiah Yeshua said,
Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to do them.
Mat 5:18 “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.Mat 5:19 “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever DOES and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. Mat 5:20 “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees(Judaism), you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.”
Yaakob(James 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief is dead without the works.
Deut 28:15 “And it shall be, if you do not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands and His laws which I command you today, that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you: (READ THE REST SO YOU CAN LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR AMONGST YOUR OWN PEOPLE & SEE THE TRUTH FOR YOURSELVES)
RIGHTEOUS WORKS IS GREATER THAN FAITH/BELIEF, BECAUSE THE TORAH IS ALIVE!! IT GIVES LIFE AND IT BRINGS FORTH LIFE AND IN LIVING YOU LIVE! REMEMBER THAT!!
