I always get asked, why do I do this or that, is it because my religion? I do the things I do because God said to do them, plain and simple. It's all in the scriptures and I try to follow what the scripture says because it's inspired by God. The Jewish people follow the scripture in detail, not like many Christians who pick and choose how they live their life and what they apply to it. Many people disregard a lot of the old testament, because they think Jesus came to replace the old with the new, but he came to fulfill what was already written. How can you take away the foundation of something and still expect it to stand. That's why this world is crumbling, because we try to live without the foundation of our beliefs. There was never suppose to be a diverse split and so many sects. You've heard the saying, united we stand and divided we fall, the US needs to get back to it's foundation. This country was founded under God and now it wants to take God of of it's system. If you're a christian, then the foundation of your belief is the Torah (God's teaching and instruction). That's what I study, the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith. I think it has gotten lost over time and people over look what God had to say in the beginning. I feel as if I'm grafted in with Israel and the Jewish people because I've chosen to accept Yeshua (Jesus) as my Savior. Jesus was Jewish, and I'm sure he believed in himself. Also many of his disciples were Jewish and they believed he was the Messiah, but they didn't call themselves Christians. So if that makes me Jewish, to live my life how God intended, call me what you want, I am what I am. God doesn't care about our man made religion, like what religion are you? Only one God, one earth, and one belief, the Alpha and Omega and how he said we should live our lives. All we need to do is get back to the beginning and learn what God really said for us to do, don't follow the crowd, don't be afraid to question and go against what man says. Shalom, Shalom!!

I'm no expert in Hebrew culture or religion, but I'll share some things with you that I've learned. Maybe you know this already, or maybe you have no idea about anything I'm going to say. The Torah is the foundation of the Hebrew religion, it's the first five books of the Bible; Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. It actually repeats itself all throughout the Bible, so you can kinda say it's the Bible in general. Some times I may refer to Torah as God's teaching and instruction, because that's what is. God tells you how to live your life the best way possible and who else would know better than our creator. The faith that I study believes in a savior, better known to you as Jesus Christ; his Hebrew name is Yeshua Hamashiach. I often refer to God as Yahweh, because that's his Hebrew name. Most of the commandments in the Torah I live by, but some can not be done today. Where do you think the Ten Commandments came from, out of the Torah. The Sabbath or Shabbat is the seventh day of the week; a day of rest as God commanded. I observe the Sabbath Friday sundown to Saturday sundown and usually have a Shabbat meal Friday night with family or friends to celebrate the occasion, as it says in the Torah. I just wanted to give you a little insight to what my beliefs are and what I'm talking about when I say it. Thanks for reading and have a blessed day, Shalom!! One more thing if your wondering what Shalom means... it's peace in Hebrew and could be used as a greeting.

Just letting everyone know that Torah Rap Ministry is in the process of starting a new project. We're going to be working on some new songs and completing a second album. As our Pastor would say, "know the times that you're in", we're in the last days until our Savior returns. We feel strongly about getting this message out and it should be shared with the world. If there's a good time for this, it's now, because our time is crucial in changing our ways and getting it right with God. In preparation of everything going on in the scriptures, prophecies are being fulfilled and the enemy knows his time is running out too. Be on the look out for album updates and singles coming out, we'll keep you posted. Questions and comments are always welcome, we like to get positive feed back. Shalom !!
