“The disciples said to Yeshua, ‘We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?’ Yeshua said to them, ‘Wherever you are, you are to go to Ya’aqub ha’Tzaddik (James, the Teacher of Righteousness), for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.'” -Gospel of Thomas
This is the official website for the Assembly of the Mshikhanim: A religious community of the Religion of Light.
The purpose of the Assembly of Mshikhanim is to shepherd all gentile souls who seek to take refuge with Yeshua the Messiah by embracing the Didache Covenant, by following the Three Pillars of the Religion of Light into the Kingdom of Heaven.
In this Assembly we worship the Eternal Father Yahweh, by being obedient to the Spirit of Holiness and the Word from the Father in heaven.
We look to Maran Yeshua as our beloved Messiah and Great Teacher.
The Divine Revelation of Melchizedek and the restoration of the gentile assembly of disciples of Yeshua Messiah
On Saturday, January 21, 2017, our religious elders received this Divine Revelation:
“The Father is demonstrating compassion on the world and upon some of those who have faltered in their walk in their original covenants. He is opening the doors of mercy and offering renewal for their souls to walk faithfully in this covenant.
This is not a new covenant, but a new call from the Spirit of holiness to come unto the Great Shepherd…
Children, raise up your heads and renew your faith so that you be guided in the truth you are being taught. The Father will instruct you in the Limudah (Didache) and the gradual observance of His Torah, and He shall teach you through the Spirit of holiness and those that have been appointed in the synod of the Mshikhanim and the Religion of Light.
Walk in faith, unity and brotherly love. Have compassion for all souls.”
The revelation came from the Melchizedek the Teacher of Righteousness himself.
The Mshikhanim Observe the Didache
While being in harmony with the Jewish followers of Messiah, we are not expected to live the tenets of the Mosaic Covenant perfectly. We are expected to observe the Torah gradually and to the best of our ability, and according to revelation, within the context of the Didache. We are called to observe the commandments of the Didache as given by James the Righteous to the gentile converts. As gentiles, the Mshikhanim share the beliefs of their Jewish brothers and sisters and live in harmony with them, but they know what is expected of them and live in accordance with what they have received in humility.
The Mshikhanim are Observe the Sabbath
Our spiritual community observes the seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) and views the tenets of the Didache as our commandments. We do not adhere to the belief that the seventh-day Sabbath is to be observed on Sunday. We believe such a belief is in error and completely contrary to the Father’s will.
The Mshikhanim look to the Netzarim as their elder brothers
The Mshikhanim have a clear understanding of their relationship to the Jewish followers of Mshikha. They do not fall into the trap of certain sects which seek to demonize Judaism and seek to promote replacement theology (a demonic doctrine promoted by those very far from Yeshua). Nor have they adopted the false doctrines of the Reformers, which while correcting some errors, added their own distortions.
At no point have these many groups returned to the simple truths ordained by Messiah and taught by Apostles to the earliest gentile communities. When gentile communities seek to call themselves the new Israel, this means they have no idea what the real Israel is. It is yet another attempt to rob the Jewish people of their faith and culture. If people appropriate the beliefs and culture of another people and reject the very covenant given by the Messiah, how can this be the sign of a devout disciple?
- Observe the seventh-day Sabbath (Shabbat)
- Fast on Wednesdays and Fridays according to the Didache
- Listen to Torah on Saturdays and to the Gospel on Sundays
- Observe Qurbana on Sundays (not as the Sabbath but as the Lord’s Day)
- Observe the appointed feasts and fasts as given to them by their Teacher of Righteousness
