Israel’s Interest

solomon-dedicates-the-temple-2-GoodSalt-stdas0193 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 Almighty. Humble yourself and pray that He will give you life through His Holy Spirit.  King Solomon saw this three thousand years ago as he dedicated the temple.

“As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your namefor they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your 

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

imagesI 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 a third; and the place where many others want to lay a claim.  Jerusalem is the birthplace of Judaism when Abraham was called by God to go there, and once there received His promise that to his

Replacement Theology

Olive-Tree-Israel-300x243“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.” (Rom. 2:28-29).  This is one of many scriptures that is used to support Replacement Theology.  It is the belief that Israel rejected her Messiah and the Gentiles accepted Him, so the Church has become Spiritual Israel, replacing the natural Israelites.  As the

Times in This Age

imagesWhat 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, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago), salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us—to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember

Spiritual Israel and God’s Promise

But now in Christ Jesus

Joseph and Yeshua Sons of Israel

7d34eae1368d5e58a21250b330f12956Joseph 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 said He only did and said what Father God did and said. (John 5:19; 8:28).  Yeshua was loved and anointed by Father God with the Holy Spirit that descended as a dove. (Luke 3:22).  Joseph was misunderstood by his family, as was Yeshua.  Joseph suffered unjustly at the hands of his brothers, and by Potiphar as a consequence of his wife’s lies regarding Joseph’s propriety. (Gen. 39: 7-19). Yeshua was
