Sinning For the Sake of Redemption

21 Adar 5777

On the face of it, it's a very shocking idea - sinning in order to bring the redemption. But, it is an idea which underlies the most destructive false messanic movements in Jewish history and which is re-emerging in our own time.

Consider this comment which I received by email...

"...a sin for the sake of heaven is greater than a mitzvah done with bad intent."

Now compare it to this principle which is at the heart of all false messianic movements:

Antinomianism - 1) In Christianity it is the doctrine or belief that the Gospel frees Christians from required obedience to any law...and that salvation is attained solely through faith and the gift of divine grace. 2) The belief that moral laws are relative in meaning and application as opposed to fixed or universal.

With regard to Sabbateanism and Frankism, too...
...Unlike traditional Judaism, which provides a set of detailed guidelines called halakha that are scrupulously followed by observant Jews and regulate many aspects of life, Frank claimed that "all laws and teachings will fall" and following antinomianism asserted that one's most important personal obligation of every person was the transgression of every boundary.
Frankism is commonly associated with Sabbateanism, a religious movement that formed around the identification of the 17th-century Jewish rabbi Sabbatai Zevi as the Jewish messiah. Like Frankism, the earlier forms of Sabbateanism believed that at least in some circumstances, antinomianism was the correct path. Zevi himself would perform actions that violated traditional Jewish taboos, such as eating fats that were forbidden by Jewish dietary laws and celebrating former fast days as feast days.

...Frank claimed that the mixing between holy and unholy was virtuous.
It sounds just like those among us today who have gone way beyond simply accepting donations from idolaters which itself was wrong, because it was the first misstep which lead to all the rest. It has lead to providing idolaters access to Jewish children, to lone soldiers, to Holocaust survivors and other vulnerable populations in the Land of Israel. It has lead to moving Jews out in order to give the idolaters a permanent home inside the yishuv where they worship their false god in our holy land. It has lead to bringing them into Jewish homes and hosting them at meals and attending their weddings. It has even lead to "partnering" with them in spreading a distorted Torah to the world - a universalist  "Torah". And all this sin has been committed in the name of "bringing the redemption".



This idolatrous Xian woman is "partnered" with a Jew in three projects which appear to make mixing the holy and the unholy into a virtue. In fact, it was one of their associates who wrote that bolded comment you see above.

They want you to believe that these are some kind of "new" Xians - not like the ones of the past who openly persecuted Jews. These are tolerant Xians who simply want us to be the best Jews we can be. They have no designs on our souls any longer. 

Well, Ms. Jollay's email presents a different story. It would seem from her presentation of a recent Xian "prophecy" that she still harbors the 2,000-year-old Xian dream of seeing all the Jews come to faith in JC...

..I could see Jesus, with just a glance, open the eyes of their [Jews'] heart, and they could literally SEE Him as Jesus, the Messiah. I could see on the inside of them, as we walked down this path in Jerusalem, that all of a sudden the eyes of their heart were opened, and a small flame started to burn on the inside of them.
Some of the people He tipped his head to I knew had great authority, heads in the Jewish community--rabbis. I could literally see in a glance the Lord opening up their eyes; I could see the Lord appearing. He was appearing to some of the top rabbis in the land, and just with a glance and a nod, a flame of revelation started to burn on the depths of the inside, in a second the eyes of their hearts were opened.
...We followed these Rabbis up to their rooms, as they went up into the upper rooms of their houses. I watched these Rabbis fall on their knees and cry out, "This Changes EVERYTHING. This changes EVERYTHING!" I saw the Lord go over and blow on that tiny ember of revelation on the inside, and little by little, it started to burn like an unquenchable fire.
... I saw that this fire would continue to burn until the appointed day would come when these Rabbi's could hold it in no longer and they would shout it from the top of the mountains, "Yeshua is Messiah...YESHUA IS MESSIAH!" I thought about how we pray for this....
And she closes her email with this...
Jesus, Yeshua, I thank YOU that YOUR Blood has Covered and Redeemed my own sin and I plead your blood for the sins of my family, my nation, the world and as an Israel Commissioned Watchman on the Wall of Jerusalem for Jerusalem and Israel of abortion – and thank YOU Yeshua for Laying Down Your Life to Save and Redeem us all– HALLELU YAH!!!" The Bride and The Spirit cry “COME LORD JESUS, YESHUA!!! and for our Hebrew Brothers we agree “HOSANNA!!!” Baruch HaBa B'Shem Adonai - Blessed IS HE that Comes in the Name of YHWH!!!
God’s ABUNDANT Blessings and FAVOR in JESUS, YHWH Yeshua HaMashiach (LORD Jesus the Messiah in Hebrew) upon you and yours!!!

The French have a saying: plus ca change plus ca meme chose - the more things change, the more they remain the same. King Solomon said it more succinctly: Ayn chadash tachat hashemesh - there's nothing new under the sun.

Don't be fooled. Don't be mislead. If you've already fallen for this error, repent now, before it is too late.
