Our Thanksgiving Harvest Festival

“And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,  ‘Speak to the people of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the Feast of Booths to the Lord. On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work.  For seven days you shall present food offerings to the Lord. On the eighth […]

God’s Prophetic Word to Israel

The Lord started something in 1948, reuniting Israel as a nation in the land He had given their forefathers. However, He is not through and will fill Israel completely. “Your children hasten back, and those who laid you waste depart from you. Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come […]

Transformation by the Spirit A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other […]

Israel’s Land

There have been and remain disputes over the land of Israel, but not based on fact. Israeli history is well documented in the Bible. It begins with Abraham and his purchase of land upon which he and his descendant’s lived. During Jacob’s lifetime there was a famine in the whole region that required Israel to […]

Lessons From Israel

When we see disunity and strive that identity politics has brought upon American society it can sadden and confuse those of us who lived before this evil arose. Israel has been dealing with a much more extreme version since it was restored. Some Arabs and most “Palestinians” practice identity politics, perhaps Yasser Arafat was a […]

Israel’s Fear

During the days of Yeshua, the Jewish leaders were under a Roman occupation; they were afraid that their way of life and nation would be destroyed as the Romans sought to assimilate them into their empire. Scripture records a comment from the ruling Jewish council, “If we let him go on like this, everyone will […]

Israel’s Awakening

“‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: When I gather the people of Israel from the nations where they have been scattered, I will be proved holy through them in the sight of the nations. Then they will live in their own land, which I gave to my servant Jacob. They will live there in […]

World History (Or a Part Distinctly Unique)

Deuteronomy Chapter Four can only be described as such, because it denotes the basis for civilization, God’s law; the centrality of Israel as God’s chosen nation, inseparably including, Yeshua Messiah, and the believers who through Him are part of Israel; prophecy regarding the future redemption of Israel, their dispersion and regathering into the land, forever […]

Israel’s Return

“He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.” (Psalm 130: 8). How can the Bible be read in its entirety and not be credited with God’s affirmation of undying love and eventual redemption for Israel? The Jewish rejection of their own Messiah, Yeshua, has been a cause for offense by some. This offense is […]

Messiah’s Return

Israel was destroyed in 70 AD, by the Romans, shorty after the Messiah Yeshua was killed, raised to life and ascended to heaven.  In 1947 the Israeli nation was reestablished.  In 1967, Jerusalem the capital of Israel was liberated from foreign captivity and rule.  In 2018, Jerusalem was designated the capital of Israel by the […]

The Promised Land

“Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to […]

The Believer’s Status

“Oh, I got a text from Shana,” she said.  I paused thinking, how is she texting my Cousin, whom I haven’t spoken to in several years, when she said, “…you know from Arkansas.”  “Oh, yeah, how is she and Chip,” I replied.  We want to know the status of our friends – that they are […]

Bethlehem

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” Micah 5:2. “And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, […]

Israel’s Interest

 The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, of Israel and the Hope of the nations has called all men to  Himself.  It is not necessary to try to be something  you are not, you only need to call on His name, Yeshua, and fear Him as the one and only Son of the true God […]

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

I have been to this city.  I stayed in the old city, in a hostel that is four hundred years old. For Americans it is hard to grasp such longevity, but this is considered new construction in the old city.  It is a marvelous place, the home of two great religions; a place of significance to […]

Replacement Theology

“A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical.  No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code.  Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.” […]

Times in This Age

What is God about during our time? He is bringing salvation to many, perhaps multitudes. Today is the day of salvation, and it began, perhaps with the coming of spiritual Elijah, John the Baptist, the forerunner of Messiah Yeshua. His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, “Praise be to the Lord, […]

Spiritual Israel and God’s Promise

“Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called ‘uncircumcised’ by those who call themselves ‘the circumcision’ (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and […]

Joseph and Yeshua Sons of Israel

Joseph is one of my favorite Bible persons, not because I relate with him, but because he is an archetype of Yeshua.  Joseph was loved by his father and was given a multi-colored coat.  Joseph had communication with God and was able to interpret God’s messages to others – He heard and understood God.  Yeshua […]
