Our Revelation And Relationship With The State Of Israel, Judaism, And The Jewish People

During a recent trip to Israel, I was asked several times to clarify the revelation and relationship that The Living Word Fellowship has with the State of Israel, Judaism, and the Jewish people. In recent messages, I have started a series of teachings in an endeavor to answer those questions. Beginning with our founder John Robert Stevens, this fellowship has lived the revelation of Hebraic traditions, such as the biblical feasts and the Sabbath; we understand that the Word flows together from the Hebrew testament into the Greek testament.

However, we acknowledge that our thinking has been influenced by anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism that can be found throughout Church doctrine and in the historical writings of Church fathers. In this series of teachings, these influences are thoughtfully identified and brought to light under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

Through our repentance, we believe that God can lead us into a new relationship with the Jewish people, with Judaism, with our Bible, and with God Himself. God said He would bless those that bless His people and curse those who curse them (Genesis 12:3). Therefore, we must strive to bless them and curse not. In truth, anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism was not the intent of Christ or of Christianity, for we were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you (Romans 11:17-18).

I invite you to follow along with me as this series unfolds.  As of now, the messages in this series include:
