The True Jews must and will return before it's all over

Reader comment on item: Ending the Palestinian "Right of Return"
in response to reader comment: Palestinian Arabs, Aliyah--and Anusim

Dear Mr. Katchen, thank you for bringing to attention the Anusim of Central and South America. If they are truly of the origin, then they must return to fulfill God's plan. If they did not defile their genetic bloodline, then they are of the true tribes. There are attempts now to bring people claiming to be of the lost tribes, albeit good intentions, into Israel. Of these are the so-called Beta Israel of Ethiopia and now Lamemba of Africa, simplistically based on the fact that they practice a 'form' of Judaism. Simplistically, because the 400 years of servitude of the Hebrews is a huge swath of time and they must have had some effect on the surrounding indigenous Africans, who also served as slaves to Pharaoh. It is human nature to live in the Now and not grasp the complex passage of time.

There is also the possibility of the Hebrews disobeying the laws of purity and interbreeding. Nevertheless, the Anusim can be proven genetically and need to be financially supported. Regarding your assessment of the religious implications through forced conversions, such as what was done by the Roman Catholic religion and the Inquisition, don't associate this with Messianic Christianity or Messianic Judaism. Messianic Christianity is a misnomer used erroneously by Christians and the church themselves, for Jesus is not their "Messiah" but he is their "Head." He is the Head of the Church.

As for Messianic Judaism, this is not a misnomer, but a redundancy. The Jewish people have been waiting for their "Messiah/King" for thousands of years. Thus Messianic Judaism has not been imposed upon them by anyone, except the Lord Himself. As for Christians, as well as a huge awakening population of Jews worldwide, our Head and their Messiah already came, and his name was, is, and shall be Yeshua Hamashiach.
