Since we know we belong to the one house Israelites, who splitted into two since king Jerobeam, we shared our experiences with family, friends and wolrdwide, because it is so precious to know who we really are.
We, in general for all of them, who are in the same situation, went through hard times of rejecting, ignoring, because in the eyes of the people who hadnt found this pearl, we were strangers to them.
Strange in our calendar of hebrew view of shabbat and biblical feasts
Strange in our behavior, food, contacts as well, because of the other “strangers” .
It took time to realize that from all the people we shared to, just a very very few had interest and go on with their new journey.
It made me think…
We hadn’t close friends who told us with their heart about their pearl they found. We knew nobody who have that precious present found in the year of 1987 we found shabbat by revelation.
We know that there are different ways to regognize Torah, but what’s the reason people dont take it easily?
Does the seed of this precious revelation take tens of years starting to grow?
Or is it that most of the people dont receive revelation to understand and start with practising Torah?
When I looked back, I saw something…
When we received the revelation of shabbat and more Torah, it took some time to understand who we really were.
The revelation was enough to change into one week from sunday to shabbat but to act out of identity took some time. Awareness came after starting shabbat. It took some years when we received a book called Who is Israel by Batya Wootten and then it was short after reading that we act out of knowing our identity.
Nowadays much more people kwow their identity as Efrayim or Yosef and these people shared like we…
In North America this influence is much bigger than in Europe, but still there is a time between knowing and doing out of the real identity.
Do you have other experiences?
Please share with us!
