- “The secret things belong to YHWH our Elohim, but the things revealed belong to us” (Deuteronomy 29:29)
Now that we know that we are Israelite, what do we do next? FOR YHWH does not speak to us in secret....
And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither YHWH thy Elohim hath driven thee,
2 And shalt return unto the YHWH thy Elohim, and shalt obey his voice according to ALL THAT I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
3 THAT THEN YHWH thy Elohim will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither YHWH thy Elohim hath scattered thee.
4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will YHWH thy Elohim gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:
5 And YHWH thy Elohim will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
6 And YHWH thy Elohim will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
7 And YHWH thy Elohim will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
And thou shalt return and obey the voice of YHWH, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
9 And YHWH thy Elohim will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of YHWH thy Elohim, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
Can we see where we at, and what we should do next?

The book of Jubilees chapter 1 pretty much sumerizes the story of Israel, from captivity to redemption.

What we should do next is identified on the verses in Jubilee chapter 1 verse 15 and into more details in Deuteronomy 30 verse 2 where it said that we shall return to YHWH our Elohim and obey all that he command them this day, which is the command to keep all his commandments that was given to Moses to Mount Sinai.
Are we doing what we were supposed to do next, since we are so divisive when it comes to the Law?

The game has changed slightly. In the sense that it is no longer necessary to perform any of the commandments for the sake of salvation. Nor is it mandatory to perform sacrifices or burnt offerings for the remission of sins. Yeshua HaMashiach died so that we could be freed from the curse of the law, which is death for transgression of the law. Now, we must only fulfil the commandments through the faith and love and fear of our God. That means, keeping the Sabbath, the feast days and the dietary laws. We must do this with sincerity and fullness of heart so that the Lord might look upon us with compassion and yet again choose us to be his remnant.
But the most important thing is prayer. Because prayer has replaced the daily incense and grain offerings. Instead, the prayers of our hearts and our lips are the currency of Israel. Because we have no tabernacle, no temple and no priesthood. So sacrifices and burnt offering are out of the question. Do everything else, except those two things and we should be good. Pray daily, keep the Sabbath, celebrate the Lord’s feast days, repent, keep the circumcision of the flesh and be baptised. And soon you will be redeemed.
Don’t listen to anyone who tells you the law is done away with. It’s not, the sacrifices are. Everything else still stands. It’s not enough to have Torah without Messiah. And likewise Messiah without Torah. We need both. And that means keeping all of the law except what Yeshua himself forbade, which is the daily sacrifices and burnt offerings of the temple service. Other than that, keep everything else. Prayer, Sabbath, feasts, circumcision, baptism and dietary laws. That is true way of the Israelite. Amen!

I agree with you regarding we need the Messiah and the Law for it is written that we need to endure till the end in keeping the commandments of YHWH and faith of YHWHSHUA to be saved (Matthew 24:13, Revelation 14:12), I am talking about future salvation, not salvation from sin. Although, salvation from sin leads to that. You can only be reconciled to YHWH and your brothers, to walk in YHWH righteousness which is his Law if you are saved from sin. Holy YHWHSHUA gives you that salvation.
But I disagree when it comes to the temple and the priest. The scriptures said that YHWHSHUA is the Temple, and and we are his body. Remember he said to his disciples that he will destroy the Temple and built in 3 days (Mark 14:58, John 2:19). It will be like that even in the new Jerusalem, YHWH our Elohim Almighty and the lamb will be its Temple (Revelation 21:22).
We do have a high priest waving us to the Father and he is YHWHSHUA the Messiah (Hebrew 4:14). He made us all priests (1 Peter 2:5).
Concerning the sacrifice, I like to say that we have the real ones now for the former were just copies. We have to present ourselves as a living sacrifice to YHWH (Roman 12:1). We have a better and the real sacrifice for sins in YHWHSHUA the Messiah that offered once for all times (Hebrew 10:12, Hebrew 9:22-27). Other than that, I totally agree with you and I hope that YSHARAL/Israel will come to that conclusion.

I agree that the temple will be rebuilt in New Jerusalem. However, as for right now, I don’t believe it’s necessary for us as Israelites who are scattered abroad to perform sacrifices. And I agree, I wish more of Israel would accept my point of view, but unfortunately we are divided into two camps. Either no law, only faith. And no faith, only law. Both camps are wrong. We need a blend of both.
The law is eternal, only some parts of it are now negated because they were paid for by the blood of Christ. But for the most part, everything is still as it was before captivity. Even to this day, the Most High and his army of Angels still commemorate the Sabbath day. So why shouldn’t we, and we are his people for Christ’s sake! I think once most of us wake up and realise this, then that’s when we will be redeemed as a nation.
