Ninth of Av Open Letter to the Jewish People
By Gary Woodroffe
This letter is written from a Gentile raised as an ignorant, confirmed [former] Roman Catholic, now 62 yo. I was confirmed a Roman Catholic at the age of 15 yo. This Ninth of Av provokes me to write this message toward the Jewish people.
It has only been in the last several years I have learned of the breathtaking violence perpetrated against the Jewish people throughout history by those under the color of Christianity. As I continue to learn the history, the violence throughout history is indescribable. It is no wonder that you would feel alienated from those who now call themselves “Christians”.
Provoked by the signs in the heavens beginning Passover 2014 of the 1st of Four Blood Moons, I have learned of the breathtaking error, paganism and mixture perpetrated upon the entire earth originating from the Anti Semitism of the “church” fathers, which I have renounced.
I cannot find nor offer adequate words of apology to the Jewish people suffering from those “christians” throughout history.
My understanding having further studied the Torah recently in the last several years, is that I understand both Jews and Gentiles have a common need – the atonement for our sins. Yahweh, I acknowledge His proof in the heavens is that Yeshua is our Passover and atonement who has reconciled us to Yahweh.
My further understating of the Torah has led me to the choice I have made to renounce the pagan based celebrations based on Babylonian and Pagan tradition. My continuing new understanding of the Torah has lead me to new understanding of a profound depth I have never known. Yahweh through Yeshua’s atonement has reconciled us as believers and adopted into His family.
My hope and Petition to Yahweh is that the Jewish reader will know and understand my prayer of Shalom toward your rising up, laying down, your going out and coming in, that you will be the head and not the tail and your family.
