What the Bible Says

I was visiting my ninety-seven year old father-in-law and he was telling me about the old man who was cutting his lawn at that time. He interjected, "He speaks in Jibber-jabber." I paused offering a quizzical expression, to which he added, "We used to call them Holy Rollers." I just said, "Oh", as there are [...]

New Life

Perhaps the most current, tangible, widespread and ongoing evidence of the truth and power contained in the message of the Bible is the transformation experienced by every believer. It is described therein, by Yeshua Himself in a conversation with Nicodemus, a zealous religious leader who admitted to Yeshua, " 'Rabbi, we know that you are [...]

The Intercession of God

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22:31-32.  "Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit [...]

His Work

God is at rest from creation, but He is working His will in mankind to gather a people destined for glory and to be in relationship with Him in Heaven. At the outset, Man fell through disobedience and has suffered under the influence of the enemy, Satan, a rebellious being. God is Sovereign and prepared [...]

As A Child

We were keeping our three granddaughters, the youngest is almost three, and we sat down to eat. I asked who would like to say the blessing? The older sisters said, "Hailey can pray." I said, "Ok", and she began to pray. My hearing is weakening and Hailey is not the clearest speaker, so I had [...]

God’s Congregation

Today there is a shaking in American and the Church because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Most unprecedented is the impact on the Church, gatherings have been outlawed, free association and assembly has been severely restricted. Panic is imminent, not so much in regard to the Church, but among the public in general. What is the [...]

Acceptance

I made a small sign with a black marker and some white cardboard. I wrote in large bold letters "I ACCEPT", and put it on the wall. It was during college that I had a personal revival of sorts and was filled with the Holy Spirit. This term, "filled" is from decades of perspective and [...]

Spiritual Sight

Yeshua gave all He had in pursuit of God's will.  This includes in His conversation with the woman at the well and as He traveled around Israel, healing, delivering, teaching, prophecying, confronting a few, being rejected by many, loving completely in every circumstance.  He kept nothing for Himself and abandoned completely every aspect of His [...]

In the Depths of Your Heart

Think of all the years of your life, the months and weeks that measure your growth physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Then scan the range of your memories from childhood till now, the events that have made you who you are, your education, relationships, vacations, holidays, achievements, your greatest triumps and the agony of your defeats, [...]

Is This Between Me and God?

In certain of life's situations we may ask this question?  It is likely a good question to ask, even before we become desparate or disappointed?  During Gideon's days Israel was under extreme oppression from rival nations.  An angel appeared to Gideon saying, " 'Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's [...]

The Sensitivity of the Spirit

This is the title of a book by R. T. Kendall, including, "Learning to Stay in the Flow of God's Direction."  The Holy Spirit is my fascination, He captivates and seldom leaves my consideration, perspective, and longing.  I believe the Holy Spirit is active in the congregation of Believers on earth ever since Yeshua ascended [...]

More of Yeshua

As much as we know of and about Yeshua's life and message, Believers yearn to know more of Him.  This is the power and mission of the Holy Spirit to reveal Yeshua in Spiritual dimensions.  That's what we have with our family and close friends, a spiritual connection across generations, forged from shared life experiences, [...]

The Wisdom Drawn from Above

“At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, 'Ask!  What shall I give you?' ” I Kings 3:5. Shortly after Solomon was made King God appeared to him and asked him what he desired.  Solomon, acknowledging his inexperience, asked for wisdom, "an understanding heart", to judge the people, [...]

Holy Spirit Leading

There is a Spiritual renewal in our day.  Beginning around the turn of this last century and most recently in the 1970's there has been an awakening to the Holy Spirit's leadership, presence, and power.  In Israel and America Messianic Jews have been gathering to exalt and proclaim Yeshua Messiah and Lord.  Traditional evangelical churches [...]
