Torah Perspective is a blog that I began in 2005, after coming to an understanding that the Torah of Yahweh Elohim is still in effect for those of belief/faith, for all people, Yisraelites and the nations/gentiles. And realizing that it is not set aside when one comes to belief in Yahshua Messiah (called Jesus Christ by traditionalism).
Around a year ago I decided to take the site down. I trashed hundreds of articles I had written, and didn’t put the site back up for quite awhile. It is now rebooted, and I feel it’s time to move forward.
My name is Banner Kidd. I was born again in 1987 and began to see through the lies of traditional Christianity after about 10 years of frustration. What I read did not line up with what was practiced. And I grew tired of living a life built on sand, with no power. After seeing the lies in the traditional pagan holidays practiced by the professing church, and coming out of those, I began to put on the Commandments of Torah; guarding Sabbath first, then eating according to what Torah says is food, and abstaining from that which he says is an abomination. Pork, a staple in the diet of this East Kentucky born man was set aside in 2002, the last year we had anything to do with Christmas.
Then more revelation and the beginning of understanding of His Moedim/Feasts, as summarized in Leviticul 23 came to me. Now, each year, reading through Torah, more is revealed. Life is all about change, especially for the taught one of Messiah Yahshua. Turning to Him, as 2nd Corinthians 3 tells us, opens up the Torah and gives understanding, that applied by belief through favor/grace, brings constant change. It’s change that makes one more in the image of Yahshua, clothed in Him, and made ready for the coming wedding day.
I was born in coal country, East Kentucky, in 1955. My family moved to Indiana in 1965. I was raised from 10 years old in Northeast Indiana. I’ve lived in this area my entire life, since 1965.
I’m a musician, a songwriter, a jingle writer, a voice over actor (mostly radio commercials), a teacher of the Word, an elder at the assembly we gather with, and a worship leader.
My wife, Karen, and I are the parents of 3 grown daughters, and a teenage son who still lives at home with us. We have a wonderful son-in-law, and we have 2 grandsons and a step grandson.
I’m available to come speak about what Yahshua has done in my life, and revealed to me, and to bring songs, and to fellowship with those who seek Truth. If you would like to know more, please contact me.
