Have you come into the community? Despite current popular doctrines, a walk of faith is not simply “me and Jesus”. Shaul/Paul sides with Yahusha in gathering believers together for corporate unity under Messiah. Division becomes a byproduct of a person being called into the Israel of Elohim.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 12 • Part 2 –

In Rom 12 part 1 we’re admonished to present our individual bodies together as a corporate holy, living sacrifice! How can you do that if you don’t commit to joining a fellowship?

Paul now in this section of the letter (Chapter 12 &13) refocuses our attention on Yahusha; in particular the Sermon on the Mount:

PAUL  YAHUSHA 
12:14: Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. Lk. 6:28 Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
12:17: Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Matt 5:39:..do not resist an evil person.
12:18 If possible, so far as you are able, be at peace with men. Matt 5:9; Mk. 9:50: blessed are the peacemakers; be at peace with one another.
12:20 But if your enemy is hungry, feed him. Lk.6:27; Matt 5:44…love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.
12:20 Render to all what is due them; tax to whom you serve, as their due Mk.12:14 Is is lawful to pay tax to Caesar, or not?…Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to יהוה what are YHWH’s.
13:8 For he who loves neighbor has fulfilled the Torah. Matt 22:37- You shall love יהוה your Elohim, you shall love your neighbor as yourself; on these two mitzvoth hang the whole Torah and Prophets.
13:9 And if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matt 7:12 In all things, treat one another the same way as you desire to be treated, for this is the Torah and the Prophets.
13:11 Awake from sleep, for now salvation is nearer to us than when we first believed! Mk. 13:36; Lk. 21:28: In case he should suddenly come and find you asleep….your redemption is drawing nigh.
14:10 – 17; (Judging, stumbling blocks, Kingdom isn’t eating & drinking, but righteousness. Matt Ch’s 6, 7 & 18:

Romans 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace/ unmerited favor that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the measure of faith;
Romans 12:7 Or, some service, let us serve: or he that teaches, let him teach;
Romans 12:8 Or, he that exhorts, let him exhort: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that oversees, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with joy.

Do you bear the Root, or is the Root bearing you? What Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off. Regardless of what type of branch we are, if we are not connected to the root of that tree which is Messiah, we wither and die.
