Messiah’s Temple was founded in 2005. We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God, who died for the world’s sins, and rose up from the dead on the third day. According to scripture there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved but by the name of Jesus.
We observe the seventh day Sabbath (Friday at sunset until Saturday at sunset) and the feast days cited in Leviticus 23. We eat kosher since God commands us not to eat any abominable thing (only certain animals are acceptable for food). Animals must healthy and intact before slaughter and must be killed according to scripture. Blood must be drained from the animal as blood is life. Animals slaughtered according to kosher dietary laws meet the aforementioned restrictions.
We believe in the Holy Ghost and all evidences of receiving the Holy Ghost as described in the Bible and being baptized in living water. We believe in the Godhead: God the Father, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. They are one and the three agree as one. We accept that no man can be justified by the works of the law. Without the Holy Ghost (which is God’s righteousness) all our righteousness is as filthy rags. In fact, the Bible states it’s impossible to keep God’s law without the Holy Ghost (Romans 8:7).
Jesus says that the first and greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength. Jesus says if you love me, keep my commandments. Some churches believe the law is done away with. But Jesus says in Mathew 5 versus 17 and 18: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
1 John 3:4 says, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law”. Not only is the law not done away with but that sin is the transgression (breaking) of the law.
