Messianic eBooks


Shalom!

We'd like to welcome you to our Messianic eBooks! We appreciate your visiting us!

Download for a donation, If you can afford it.

The Lord told us He would provide for us if we obeyed His Word.

His Word in Torah (Leviticus 23:22) tells us, "When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the alien. I am the LORD your God."

Since selling books is my "field," then my keeping this commandment is to provide for the needy and allow them to "glean" from this field. So, if you cannot afford to donate, I encourage you to please download and read the books without charge.

Please be blessed as you read these books. May they truly minister to you and encourage you in your walk with Him! We ask that you pray for us that the Lord would provide for our needs. Thank you so much!

If you like the eBooks, perhaps you would like to purchase the paperback book to share with others.

If you would like to donate a donation of any size!

You will receive the ebook in the Adobe .pdf format. You will need Adobe Reader to read the book (click the link below). Thank you!

What IF???
by Bruce R. Booker

Publisher Comments

I am writing this to all those who call themselves "Christians" (followers of Christ). We all tend to think that the faith we now practice is one that follows the model set by the First Century believers in Jesus. This book explores the question of how the Church has incorporated pagan originated practices into itself over the centuries - something that God has prohibited His people from doing in His Word.

Should God be pleased with us when we do what He forbids Israel from doing in His Word? Why should He speak loving and sweet words to us in our unbiblical practice when He sharply rebukes Israel for doing the same?


Dear Christian Friend
by Bruce R. Booker



Publisher Comments

The Christian church teaches that "the Law was nailed to the Cross" and "done away with." Furthermore, it takes the words of the Apostle Paul that we, as believers in Jesus are "no longer under the Law, but under Grace."

But is this true? Or, are the Apostle Paul's words being "distorted" as Peter suggests in 2 Peter 3:15?

    And think of our Lord's patience as deliverance, just as our dear brother Sha'ul also wrote you, following the wisdom God gave him. 16 Indeed, he speaks about these things in all his letters. They contain some things that are hard to understand, things which the uninstructed and unstable distort, to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

This book examines the subject.







The Problem with Paul - Why the Epistles of the Apostle Paul Cannot be Used to Justify the Non-Observance of the Torah
by Bruce R. Booker

Recommended

Publisher Comments

We have been told that as believers in Jesus that since Jesus "fulfilled" the Law as found in the "Old Testament" and "did away with the Law" that we don't have to keep it. The purpose of this book is to share with believers in Jesus that we need to reconsider seriously what we have been taught and insure that what we have been taught by our pastors, professors, and fellow believers is indeed true and solidly in line with all of Scripture - or we may very well find ourselves in opposition to God!



Who is Israel??? Who is Israel?
by Bruce R. Booker


Publisher Comments

Is Israel simply a person, or a people? If a people, who does it consist of?

For many centuries now, the Church has proclaimed that it has replaced the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and is now "spiritual Israel."

In this book, we examine the implications of that proclamation in the light of Scripture and history.



Torah
Our Expression of Love to the Lord
by Bruce R. Booker

Recommended

Publisher Comments

God wants His people to love Him. This is evident from the many passages of Scripture that says so. The question I raise in this book is not so much a question of, "Should we love God?" I believe most people of God can come to an agreement on this point, but rather of the question, "How is loving God expressed by us?"

I think this is where we would find a difference of understanding in our expression to Him. Many of us who love God desire to become intimate with Him and to express our love without reservation to Him. That should be all of our desire. From the Scriptures, we learn that God is a covenant-making God and He is the One who institutes the covenant we have with Him. He is the One who instituted the covenant of marriage in human institutions to give us an earthly touch of what it means to have a covenant with Him and He is the One who institutes the covenant we have with Him: which is likened to the marriage covenant! How then is that marriage covenant we have with God to be walked out? That is the essence of this book.


A Call to Holiness
by Bruce R. Booker

Recommended


Publisher Comments

This book is a clarion call for Christians to come back to God's standards of holiness, instead of what we define them to be. It challenges the believer to re-examine the things that they have been taught and encourages them to be a catalyst for change within their local churches. For centuries, the Church has wandered away from the truths of God's Word and by so doing, is missing the blessings that could be hers. Soon, the Messiah will return and will want her to be "made ready" for His coming. This means that she has to remove herself from the worldly, paganistic ways and return back to the holiness that once was hers.



Argumentum Ex Silentio Argument From Silence
by Bruce R. Booker


Publisher Comments

Does the Silence of the Apostolic Writings Regarding Torah Observance by non-Jewish Believers in Jesus Imply That the Torah Does NOT Apply to Them?

"The argument from silence (also called argumentum ex silentio in Latin) is generally a conclusion based on silence or lack of contrary evidence. In the field of classical studies, it often refers to the deduction from the lack of references to a subject in the available writings of an author to the conclusion that he was ignorant of it."

In this book I seek to answer the following question that seems to plague the Messianic Community today: "Does the Torah apply to non-Jewish believers in Yeshua/Jesus?" We shall look at two examples of Christian Church practice that was evidently based upon Torah command, yet not commanded in the New Testament.



Depart from Me... "Depart from Me"
by Bruce R. Booker



Publisher Comments

Many will say to Me on that day, `Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'"And then I will declare to them, `I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'

In that statement we discover the criteria of entry into the Kingdom. Do we, as the Body of Christ meet the criteria of entering His Kingdom?

Dr. Brad H. Young, in his book, The Parables Jewish Tradition and Christian Interpretation, writes these words to us: "The Jewishness of Jesus is related to faith in the one God of Israel. Too often faith in Jesus completely overshadows the faith of Jesus." In short, our faith as believers in and disciples of Yeshua (Jesus) should be the same faith as Yeshua had when He walked on this earth! That is the meaning of true discipleship. This book seeks to lead us to have the faith of Yeshua so that we can become closer disciples of the Master.

There has been a great debate and dissention in the Messianic Movement for quite some time now. It has to do with non-Jewish believers embracing the Torah. Many Jewish believers in the Movement are opposed to Gentile observance of Torah, calling the Torah a "Jewish Identifier." But are they right in saying this? Perhaps the opposition is due to something else and these Torah-observing non-Jewish believers are doing something else to provoke such a reaction from their Jewish counterparts? Perhaps this is evidence of something that the non-Jewish believers in Yeshua should be doing: that is "provoking the Jews to jealousy." If it is evidenced in the reaction by our Jewish believing community, could it have the same effect on the Jewish non-believing community, too?

I have been blessed to have been in the "Messianic Movement" as it is called for over 20 years and have seen much good in it, particularly where it comes to outreach to Jewish people with the Gospel of the Messiah.

Having said that, I have also seen some of the craziest people and theologies come into the "Movement" ("Messy-anic") as well.

There is a "Movement" within the the Messianic Movement that is causing division in the Body of Messiah. It is called the "Sacred Name Only" Movement.

This book looks at the divisive issues of this "Movement."
