Messiah and Mayim

I'd like to consider something that most of us take for granted - water - simple, ordinary water. Water is the most abundant substance on the surface of the earth. 70% of the world's surface is water and it also exists as vapor in the Earth's atmosphere. Our bodies are made mostly of water. A newborn baby consists of about

Yeshua Made Me Kosher

WHO IS YESHUA AND HOW CAN HE MAKE ANYONE KOSHER? Most people assume that Yeshua (Jesus) has nothing to do with being kosher, but that’s not true. Yeshua is the most Jewish of Jews: He was born in Israel to Jewish parents from King David’s royal family. He was circumcised on the eighth day. He was a rabbi who did

Holding Fast to Your Confidence

  This Sabbath I want to speak about confidence. As those who know the Lord, it is important for us to be bold, courageous, confident men and women. Writing to the Messianic Jews who were being persecuted, who were experiencing various kinds of suffering, who were being publicly exposed to insult and persecution, who were having their property confiscated, who

The Security That Comes from Salvation

  The rabbis teach that on Rosh HaShanah God opens the books in heaven and begins to judge the world. Then He closes His books and seals them on Yom Kippur - having written everyone either in the Book of Life or the Book of Death for the next year. Jewish people all over the world are fasting and praying,

The Most Famous Jew of All

Some Jewish people have started to reassess their attitudes toward the most famous Jew of all time Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth. The following quotations are taken from Jewish leaders and scholars whose thoughts reflect some of these changing attitudes. "As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am

Christians, Messianic Jews and Politics

  Let me try to describe reality to you -- what the universe really is, and how reality truly operates. If you could travel beyond Planet Earth, and go beyond Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the rest of the solar system; if you could keep on traveling beyond this galaxy, and then go to the end of the universe, I don't

The Sanctity Of Life

  The Three-In-One God is real. Father, Son and Spirit are Persons. God is not amoral or immoral, but God is morally good. And, the Creator has designed the universe and its human creatures so that we must operate according to the moral principles He has built into us. For four thousand years, in both Jewish and Christian society, having

Gentiles and Jews, God and Jonah

  Most people who are somewhat familiar with the Bible, if asked, "What is the most significant thing about the book of Jonah?" would probably respond that a man was swallowed by a whale and miraculously survived in the whale's stomach for three days! But there is a lot more to the story. First of all, it may not have

The Ten Commandments

  The Ten Commandments form the heart of the Torah. This was one of the most awesome revelations ever given to mankind. According to Shemot (Exodus) Chapter 19, we Jewish people prepared ourselves for three days in order to receive this revelation. Then, the Two Tablets, which were written by God Himself, were kept in the most special place on

The First 2,000 Years of History

  I’d like to tell you a story. The story starts in the very beginning and spans 2,000 years, concluding at the end of the book of Exodus. In the beginning, the good and wise Creator made the universe. In that new universe was a beautiful planet, specially designed for human beings. God created the first human beings, Adam and

Fear Not – Part One

  As we approach the end of this millennium, no matter how much shaking there may be economically, politically, socially or technologically, no matter how chaotic the world may become, we can have "shalom shalom" - "perfect peace" - in the midst of it all. We shouldn't be afraid to face the future, no matter what it may bring, for

We shouldn't be afraid to face the future, no matter what it holds, for five reasons. First, we shouldn't be afraid because we

Israel’s Twofold Restoration in the Last Days

  April 30th, 1998 (corresponding to Iyar 4, 5758) marked the fiftieth anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence. Yom Ha-Atzmaut (Israel's Independence day) comes just one week after Yom HaShoah - Holocaust Memorial day. It has been fifty years since Israel emerged from the near-death experience of the Shoah and was miraculously reborn as an independent nation. It hasn't been

Ten Signs of Messiah’s Return

Most people, given the opportunity, would welcome the opportunity to look into the future. God, who knows the end from the beginning, has revealed important information about what is to come in the Bible. One of the key biblical passages that speaks with the greatest detail about the future is found in Mark 13. As He was going out of the

Death, Resurrection And Eternal Life

  The Supreme Being is real. He is a Person. He is eternal. He has always existed. There was never a time when He did not exist; and there will never be a time when He will not exist. He is immortal and cannot die. The Living God created human beings for a purpose - so that we could be

Messiah And His Sufficiency

In his letter to the Colossians, Rabbi Paul addressed Christians and Messianic Jews who were doing well, yet being challenged by non-Biblical ideas, false ideologies and flawed religious thinking that threatened the spiritual integrity of that community. To help them overcome these challenges, the divinely inspired teacher from Tarsus pointed them to Messiah and His sufficiency. The very same thing

Lessons From The Mishkan – Tabernacle (Longer Version)

The first 11 chapters of the Bible describe the creation of the universe, the creation of the Earth, the fall of man, the pre-flood civilization and its destruction, the flood, the covenant made with Noah, and the beginning of the Jewish people starting with the call of Abraham. There are 50 chapters that describe God's dwelling place on Earth. So, by

Lessons From The Mishkan – Tabernacle (Shorter Version)

The heart of the Good News is that Messiah Yeshua died for our sins. This sounds strange to many people today, including my Jewish people. You see, two thousand years ago the Temple (which replaced the original Mishkan - the Tabernacle) was destroyed and the sacrifices ceased. Over those long centuries we lost the understanding of their significance and great

Lessons From The Sacrifices

The heart of the Good News is that Messiah Yeshua died for our sins. Dying to atone for sin sounds strange to many people today, including my Jewish people. The Good News would have greater impact if more people understood Temple worship, the sacrifices and the priests who offered them. They might be able to see how they are fulfilled

Blessings and Curses

The laws found in the Torah are part of a Brit - a Covenant between God and His holy and chosen people. This covenant that was mediated by Moses, included provisions for drawing near to God by means of the Priesthood and the Mishkan (the Tabernacle, later replaced by the Temple) and the Sacrifices that the Holy One ordained. The

The Kingdom of the World versus The Kingdom of God

There are two competing kingdoms in this universe. There is the Kingdom of the World, dominated by Satan, the god of this world, and there is the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of the World is visible. It seems so real and substantial. The Kingdom of God is invisible. To many it seems unreal and insubstantial. Each one has its
