The following is a very clear explanation concerning what Messianic Theology should be about. Dr Daniel Juster, very eloquently explains that the plan of salvation distinctly identifies two different groups: the Jews (Chosen to be the head of the nations in GOD’s plan) and the gentiles as the elect. I have understood this concept all along, Jews and gentiles should remain as two distinct groups of believers(meaning those gentiles who tried to look like, dress-up and adopt the Jewish custom…STOP ALREADY! If salvation is open TO JEWS AND JEWS WANNABES ONLY , wouldn’t the word of GOD, very clearly, formulated that requirement?
OUR FAITH AND STATUS AS GENTILES BELIEVERS in the Lord Jesus (Yeshua) has a specific purpose: TO PROVOKE THEM (Jews) TO JEALOUSY! According to Romans 11 verse 5 quoted below, we learn that GOD had prepared a certain number of Jews remaining after persecutions and forthcoming holocaust (which will decimate two thirds of their worldwide number; see Zecheriah 13:8-9 quoted below), to see, as we gentiles see, GOD’s plan for salvation through Yeshua ha Masiach and received their salvation “through THE ELECTION OF GRACE!”
Let us watch the following video which a Messianic Rabbi, a Jew, confirms that his Jewish identity is very important to GOD! So is our true identity as gentiles. If salvation is opened only to Jews and Jews “wannabes,” wouldn’t the word of GOD stressed that point?
MESSIANIC RABBI SHARES HOW HE ACCEPTED YESHUA AS MESSIAH
Uploaded on March 12, 2008
After a dramatic vision, a Jewish man studied the bible for many years as great literature, then finally accepted that Yeshua (Jesus) really is the Messiah of Israel. He became a new and better person, BUT THEN REALIZED THAT HIS JEWISH IDENTITY IS STILL VERY IMPORTANT TO GOD!
Glenn Blank is now a professor of computer science as well as the Messianic Rabbi of Beit Simcha (www.beitsimcha.org) in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The clip is from a TV show, the Living Truth, hosted by Pastor Larry Burd, on WBPH 60 in Bethlehem, PA
Zechariah 13:8 AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT IN ALL THE LAND, SAITH THE LORD, TWO PARTS THEREIN SHALL BE CUT OFF AND DIE; BUT THE THIRD SHALL BE LEFT THEREIN.  AND I WILL BRING THE THIRD PART THROUGH THE FIRE, AND WILL REFINE THEM AS SILVER IS REFINED, AND WILL TRY THEM AS GOLD IS TRIED: THEY SHALL CALL ON MY NAME, AND I WILL HEAR THEM: I WILL SAY, IT IS MY PEOPLE: AND THEY SHALL SAY, THE LORD IS MY GOD.
Dr Daniel mentioned that there is nothing wrong with Sunday worship nor other holidays, celebrating the death, resurrection and other related feast for the Lord Jesus Christ (they are not pagans).
Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.  God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,  Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.  But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.  EVEN SO THEN AT THIS PRESENT TIME ALSO THERE IS A REMNANT ACCORDING TO THE ELECTION OF GRACE.  And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.  WHAT THEN? ISRAEL HATH NOT OBTAINED THAT WHICH HE SEEKETH FOR; BUT THE ELECTION HATH OBTAINED IT, AND THE REST WERE BLINDED  (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.  AND DAVID SAITH, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense unto them:  LET THEIR EYES BE DARKENED, THAT THEY MAY NOT SEE, AND BOW DOWN THEIR BACK ALWAY.  I SAY THEN, HAVE THEY STUMBLED THAT THEY SHOULD FALL? GOD FORBID: BUT RATHER THROUGH THEIR FALL SALVATION IS COME UNTO THE GENTILES, FOR TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY.
The following is a very short but quite engrossing 15 minutes that you don’t want to miss and I hope will provoke you to appreciate our two distinct status: Jews and gentiles as GOD had placed us in this world. I know I am not going to be appreciated by Jews wannabes (want to be)! Please note these important points mentioned by Dr Daniel Juster: Replacement Theology is wrong (so don’t try to be a Jew when you are not one), and Christians are NOT the LOST TEN TRIBES of Jews, either. We are what we are born as: Chinese, Indians, Caucasians, Eskimos, Indonesians, Malay, Filipino etc., etc.

You have been shown how God proves the truth of His Word, time and forever. He shows us the “End” from the “Beginning.” Aren’t you amazed at the Almighty God?
Do you know or have you heard or better still, are you a believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? He is closing the book on this sinful world. Because of His loving nature, He wants to reduce the number of human beings from perishing, not the other way around. It is said that “THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONG SUFFERING TO US-WARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.” [2 Peter 3:9]
