Hebrew roots and why you need to know about it...

"... thou bearest not the root, but the root thee." Romans 11:18

The Hebraic Roots movement is many things, but one of its key elements is the work to restore the lost Hebraic nature of scripture to Christians. Sometimes this is called returning to our Jewish roots, and so it is in part,but it is more. The Most High gave His people instructions that would be unmistakable in the world as belonging to Him. His people were to be His own and be a chosen people, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation. One of the worst things that could happen to the people of Adonai is to assimilate into the world's fashion and to mingle our worship so that it is not set apart: to think like the world thinks and to follow the world's lead. Our purpose is to lead the world to worship and obey the Almighty and to understand that His ways are the ways of life and not death!!! With such a task before us we must be assimilation proof. We must reflect the ancient ways he gave us else how can we show that we have something different and better to offer the world. As the scripture teaches us, we are graphed into them...not them into us.

Mark Biltz, El Shaddai Ministries (I have added my thoughts to the above statement to try and clearify the meaning of the statement)

Mark Biltz also has teaching on Channukkah which further explains the problems that are arising related to Abba's people assimilating in the world and how those who haven't done so will be "set apart" from the rest of the world in the end of days.  Very interesting information and well worth your time to listen to.  I don't have a link to that particular teaching but here is a link to his site where you could get info. to help locate it:
