Ha’zainu means to ‘hear’ and is directed to a corporate body. The Song of Moshe recounts Isra’el’s sins and the consequences; he includes hope for the future redemption. Moshe calls on heaven and earth, the witnesses of Adonai, to hear his words and ask they be like rain and dew –– living water that brings forth life.
By the time Yeshua gave John this revelation, non-Jewish believers had joined the Jewish believers in the commonwealth of Isra’el. These congregations lived a Biblically Jewish lifestyle that built upon the four requirements for leaving pagan religious systems outlined at the Council of Jerusalem and included learning Torah (Acts 15:19-21). The messages from the Messiah 2000 years ago still have much to say to the Messianic communities that exist around the world today.
