The Already and the Not Yet

Messianic Jews live in the period between the "already" and the "not yet." Already, they know that the Kingdom of God has come spiritually in Messiah Yeshua. As communities, they seek to demonstrate this reality of the present Kingdom by lives of love, power, reconciliation, and healing. The Kingdom has not yet come in its fullness to all the earth. Only when Messiah Yeshua returns will the Kingdom be a reality in fullness over all the earth. Hence Messianic Jews live in expectation of that Day of the Lord, when "His will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven" (see Matt. 6:10). The life of Messianic Jews, however, is a life with definite concepts of authority, the way of salvation, the work of God's Spirit, the Messiahship of Yeshua, what it means to be Jewish, and how all this is manifest in one's lifestyle and practice.
