The Other Messiah

The Other Messiah…

Around the year 1666, a rabbi named Sabbatai Zevi was hailed by rabbis throughout the lands in which Jewish people lived as the long-awaited Messiah, coming to rescue His people and bring them back to the land.

But then something went wrong – Sabbatai started acting strange. He got married to a Torah scroll and started advocating heresy. Finally, the Sultan of the Turkish Empire arrested and imprisoned him and gave him a choice to either convert to Islam or be killed. Sabbatai Zevi quickly converted to Islam.

A thousand and a half years earlier, another Jewish Rabbi, Yeshua, Jesus, was rejected as Messiah. And since then every Jewish hope in another Jewish messiah has been crushed. Yeshua is the only answer to the Jewish hope in Messiah. Everything else is false.

So, too, in your life, if you’ve been disappointed lately, seeing your hopes crushed or broken, or if things are just not working out chances are, you’ve lost sight of God. Come back, for in Him alone is your hope – everything else is just false.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, Hebrews 6:19

Today, take any disappointment, and any trust you’ve put in man or the world or the flesh, turn away from it put all your trust in God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
