Now usually I am NOT for interfaith but Christian/Jewish to me is very special. Because as Christians we know that the Jewish are God’s chosen, they’ve kept a sacredness to the God that we worship too… Only difference…

They were blinded to miss the Messiah so that the whole world could be with God.

I think that you particularly and you FAMILY have an opportunity to show CHRISTLIKE love that overwhelms the heart to having eyes be opened!

I think Jews who have opened eyes and hearts to Jesus really have THE BEST of it all.. The reverence and fear that we see in Isaiah as he fell to his face in the thrown room, to the overpouring love that Jesus himself showed as he washed the disciples feet.

Wow.. sorry for going on like this but I think with prayer and a CLEAN heart on your part (towards your family who is only looking through a hard/blind heart) is the way that strife will be broken and you and you FH will have that unity.

I will also be praying for you, him, and your family!

oh my gosh this sounds so horrible. I am SO sorry this is becoming such a nightmare for you. I don’t have any advice to offer, but I would suggest seeing if your dad can help your mom see the error of her ways.

Definitely! I’m sure that as you walk out your walk that your FH is going to see a side of love that he’s NEVER seen… we know that it’s by our salvation (us walking it out, trusting & growing in God, and living His way) that our WHOLE family will be saved!

Now I would stay in CONSTANT prayer on this one.. David CONSTANTLY checked HIS heart b/c it’s that junk that blocks God being able to work, but I feel really at peace in my heart about this, and believe that God as even more blessing than you could imagine for you and your future family.

Pray Pray Pray for your family.. not that they would see, but that their heart would be full of God’s grace and love AND that as they struggle with that, that God would strengthen you to continue being honorable to them and still holding to your conviction, so that strife has NO room and He will be able to move & work ๐Ÿ˜‰

(sorry for the soap box.. I just believe that truth is the best advice!)

YES! RECEIVED! I BELIEVE IT WITH YOU!

which covers idk how many scriptures:

matt 18:18-19, mark:11:22, Rom 4:7 and I’m sure theres more that are covered just right there

and Now WRITE IT DOWN! I might even keep this thread!

Habakuk 2:2 says write down the vision! so that we don’t loose hope!

Prayer is powerful and God wants US ALL.. so why wouldn’t he move in this relationship for a man that already honors and knows him.

Keep your chin up girl! I’m excited!

In your heart you know what to do. You love him, you’re going to spend the rest of your life with him and your mom and sister have to learn to deal with that. They don’t need to support you, but they’ll be losing out on a relationship with a wonderful woman and a wonderful man. At least you have your brother and father behind you, that’ll help your mom and sister eventually get over themselves. Unfortunately it’s time to show them that you’re an adult, you can make your own decisions and if they’re not with you then they’re against you and you can’t start a family that way. So keep the people that support you right by your side, and know in your heart that you’re making the right choice.

I’m so sorry you have to go through this! I never understand how supposedly faithful and God-loving people can be so narrow minded and unwelcoming.  Is this the message Jesus tried to convey to us? Who, btw, was Jewish himself.

It’s tough when one family member goes against the believe system of the family.  But this is about you and you future husband forming your OWN family, with you OWN values and believes.  That does not mean you need to replicate what your family of origin did.  You can be your own person.  Yes, it will be hard, and your parents won’t like it. Maybe they will get over it, maybe not. But you should do what is right by you.

I grew up southern baptist and when I brought Mountain Man to meet 94 year old granny it was a discussion to mention if he was jewish or not.  We finally did, and she, bless her heart said “The hebrew children are treasures for christians everywhere”.  ~~chokes me up even to write that now….

Can your Minister intervene?

I’m usually not one to cite bible verses, but I can’t help thinking of the reading we chose for our wedding from the NT, Hebrews 13:1.

Brothers and sisters,
Let mutual love continue.
Do not neglect hospitality,
for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.

@Anabanan Hope the night’s sleep and prayer has helped clear the heart! Defnitely keep on praying.. AND don’t forget to keep YOUR heart right and not look at your family that is opposing you… They really JUST DON’T KNOW and need MORE Jesus!

sidenote: This revelation “They need Jesus” has helped me SOOOO much with dealing with issues b/c even those who are “Christian” of have Jesus need Jesus and some days we NEED MORE… idk about you but I know when I’m not close enough to him I act dumb! lol

back on track..

I think @sit1010 has the right direction… Jesus most definitely didn’t walk WITH the crowd… He loved everyone, everyone, everyone! I think where your family is having issues is just because He loved everyone doesn’t mean that he was doing what they were doing.. (the unequally yoked part.. which is true and WILL block blessing.. but I believe in your case will be overcome to have your whole family loving Jesus in a whole new way)… I would really take this time to worry about changing YOU and let  your family SEE that change so their hearts can follow suite… Remember: the things that we know are ONLY b/c God himself has given us that revelation… and your family is going to receive that revelation FROM Him as you stay obedient and stand on the Word!

You stick it close with Jesus and do your part to forgive forgive forgive and walk in love (ask for MORE love) then God will work and your family is going to be so blessed for it!

And I LOVE what the granny of @retreadbride said, (like I mentioned in PP) the Jewish are and WILL ALWAYS be God’s chosen.. knowing His son (Jesus) or not they have a SPECIAL place and I just know that God’s going to work through you in this.

Definitely keep me posted (pm), watch what words you let in your heart (keep it clean clean clean.. no ucky feelings.. get rid of them.. no jugment, no nothing like that.. as soon as it comes up repent and ask to start again!) and I’m just standing and believing with you that your WHOLE family is going to grow and be more of who God made them to be than EVER before through this!

YAY!… =D
