Thoughts On Abortion And The Will of God

“See now that I, I am He, and there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, and there is no one who can deliver from My hand.” (Deuteronomy 32:39) I. God’s ‘Default Setting’ (Life-if we would simply not interfere!) But now ask the

Chanukkah 2015: Don’t Let Your Guard Down!

The history of the Jewish people has been summed up this way: “They tried to kill us. We won. Let’s eat… Chinese!” And indeed we shall eat – in a little while. First you have to let me put in my $0.02. I’m still wondering why I only get a penny for my thoughts, but I have to put in

Giving Thanks Where Thanks Is Due

An up-and-coming account executive was on his way to a very important and potentially lucrative meeting with the CFO of a major corporation. The commission alone, should he land the account, would be more than triple his annual salary. But he had miscalculated the time needed to get to the company offices, and the traffic was horrible, and he was in

Samson Was A 98 Lb. Weakling (Well… he might have been!)

Samson Was A 98 Lb. Weakling (Well… he might have been!) Zechariah 4 Why such a title? Because chances are, like most people you thought Samson probably looked like a body-builder. But nowhere in the book of Judges is Samson ever described as being well-built. His strength, as we are told in the Scriptures, had nothing to do with his muscle.

Forecasting The Future From The Sukkah

Without a doubt, Sukkot is the most joyful of the seven God-ordained annual holidays. In my book it’s as much fun as Purim and Chanukkah combined! Now to be honest, you could chalk some of it up to relief at having made it through the repentance and solemnity of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. But the Feast of Tabernacles has

Yom Kippur Morning – Just Who Is This?

For me this is Yom Kippur number 34 since becoming a disciple of Yeshua, and the good news is I think I’m beginning to get it. Or, maybe not. After all, it seems we go about our daily affairs, largely oblivious to the invisible but real cosmic war taking place all around us. We have little idea just how powerful

Rosh HaShanah 2015 – It Was All So Sudden

Four Questions (Or: When is a question not a question?)

What would we do without rhetorical questions? It’s been said that a good question is half the answer. The right question at just the right moment has framed more than a few climactic movie scenes. For example, that tense exchange between Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men is touched off by the words, “Colonel Jessup, I

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon On The Mount Part 7

Across history, various rabbis have been known for their particular teaching; notable perhaps for emphasis on a particular aspect of Torah or focus on a specific attribute God’s nature, or a unique interpretation on an historical event. Disciples are supposed to be able to articulate their rabbi’s particular teaching. More than that; their lives are supposed toreflect that teaching. Yeshua,

Rejoice With Jerusalem

This past Thursday, May 14th, marked the 67th anniversary of Israel’s declaration of independent statehood. For those who know and love God and believe His Word, it is a modern-day miracle and the fulfillment of biblical prophecy – an historical event to be celebrated. Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, which takes place on the 28th of Iyyar on the Hebrew calendar,

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon on the Mount Part 5c

During the past year we have been revisiting Matthew’s account of the Good News, and making our way through Yeshua’s Sermon on the Mount. As I have told you before, certain renowned rabbis have been recognized across history for their signature teachings. One rabbi might be known for his emphasis on a particular aspect of the Torah, another perhaps having

Matthew 6:9-11 Introduction Across history, various rabbis (some of them renowned) have been recognized for their particular teaching; notable for emphasis on a particular aspect of Torah or their focus on a specific attribute God’s nature, or perhaps a unique interpretation of an historical event.

Oops!

Listen to this analogy by Pastor David Rhodes: “Pride is the dandelion of the soul. Its root goes deep; only a little left behind sprouts again. Its seeds lodge in the tiniest encouraging cracks. And it flourishes in good soil. The danger of pride is that it feeds on goodness.” Perhaps no parable illustrates this as well as that which

Knowing When to Say ‘Dayenu’

Hear the words of the prophet: Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the Lord. For You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with influences from the east, and they are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they strike bargains with the children of foreigners. Their land has also been

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon on the Mount Part 3

Politicians love to cite the “Sermon on the Mount” when put on the spot about what Bible passage they like best. Reality: it is far and away the most difficult teaching ever given, in terms of our inability to attain to it.

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon on the Mount Part 2

Introduction The Sermon on the Mount is arguably the loftiest, the purest instruction ever given in the history of mankind. But for that same reason, it is also the most difficult and potentially disconcerting instruction ever given. These renowned words of Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah, comfort, reassure and strengthen us, but alternately convict, challenge and alarm us. Talk to any

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon on the Mount Part 1

Introduction The author of the Letter to the Messianic Jews (Hebrews) wrote, For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (4:12). Nowhere is this truth more evident than
