Dispensationalism

If we are to properly understand, correctly handle and apply the Word of God to our lives, and avoid misunderstanding, disappointment and confusion, it is important to understand that God has different requirements for different people in different ages. There is a word for that. It’s called Dispensationalism. While the word “Dispensationalism” is not used in the Bible, the concept

Five Arguments For God’s Existence

Because of the Fall of Man, human beings are very damaged creatures. We are not headed in a good direction. We are headed away from God and eternal life, not toward God and eternal life.

How To Distinguish Between Healthy And Unhealthy Messianic Congregations

Interest in the Jewish roots of the Christian Faith has been growing for the past 50 years. That's a very good thing. However, more recently some unhealthy developments have taken place in the Messianic Jewish movement. For those who are thinking about getting involved in a Messianic congregation, you need to know that not all Messianic synagogues are spiritually healthy.

Five Principles You Need To Know To Experience A Genuinely Meaningful Life

Life can be wonderful, but life that is limited to enjoying the things of this world is not enough. We were made for something greater. A worthwhile life consists of more than a good education, a decent income, friends, marriage and children, doing nice things for others, loyalty to your nation or people, and involvement with a religious community.

As Sure As Hell!

What do you say when someone asks you, "Do you mean to tell me that if I don't accept your religion, I am going to Hell?" Or, "Are you telling me that if I don't believe in a Jewish carpenter who died 2,000 years ago, I'm going to Hell?" Rob Bell, pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church in Grand Rapids,

Yeshua Is Wonderful!

(Originally given by Arthur Glass, and expanded upon by Rabbi Loren Jacobs) Yeshua is the most special and most important human being who ever lived.

It often tells us

A Better Everything!

A couple of months ago we celebrated Yom Kippur. During our observances, my heart turned to my dear Jewish people, assembled on that holy day in synagogues around the world. I grieved for them, knowing that Modern Judaism has moved away from Biblical Judaism, and is now centered around rabbis and synagogues, prayers and fasting, not priest, sacrifice and Temple

All Or Nothing

If you've been asking yourself whether Christianity or Messianic Judaism is something you should take seriously, it's necessary to answer the question: did Yeshua actually rise from the dead? Is He alive or is He dead? If Yeshua is alive, you would be a fool not to believe in Him. And if He is dead, you'd be a fool to

The Jewishness Of The Trinity

The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the most important doctrines of the Christian Faith. It separates truth from error, orthodoxy from heresy. It is crucial to know who God really is. If we would have true spiritual power, if we would experience God's blessing, and if we would have eternal life, we must come to know God, and

How I Think

Truth, and the right ideas and right thinking that are based on the truth, are essential for a successful and meaningful life and for a good and healthy society. Without truth, life for individuals and for societies degenerates into chaos, nihilism, meaninglessness, hedonism, perversion, followed by collapse and then by eternal loss. Truth is knowable - not all truth, but

Messiah Our Sanctification

By God’s doing you are in Messiah Yeshua, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30). I love being Jewish. I love the distinct lifestyle that God has given to His Chosen People, rooted in the Torah, custom and ancient tradition. I encourage other Messianic Jews to embrace this distinctly Jewish lifestyle.

WHY SHARE THE GOOD NEWS WITH JEWISH PEOPLE? Jewish evangelism is possible.

The Names, Titles And Descriptions For God

Our society is in serious trouble. Over the past fifty years there has been a dramatic decline in the quality of our education and morals, and an equally dramatic rise in crime, murder, suicide, abortion, drugs, sexual promiscuity, divorce, debt, blasphemy, and other societal ills.

In addition,
