Ephesians 6:10-18: Spiritual Warfare: What It Is And What It Isn’t

It might not seem like it, but there is a great war raging right now, and Christians and Messianic Jews are in the middle of it. We’re in the middle of a war between God and the good angels versus Satan and the fallen angels, the kingdom of God versus the kingdom of darkness. It’s a war for the souls

Today is Passover and the first day of Matza, the seven day holiday when we don’t eat unleavened bread. Most peoples, if not all peoples, have special days to celebrate or remember important events. Israel’s annual holidays which are outlined for us in Leviticus 23, are unique because they were given to the Jewish people by God Himself. These holidays

Galatians 5:16-24: Walking By The Spirit

We live in a world in which darkness covers the Earth and thick darkness is over the peoples. People are confused about many things, including the most basic things and the most important things. For example, a google search for: “what’s the right way to live?” provided these gems of wisdom: There is no right or wrong way to live.

Forgiveness: What It Is And What It Isn’t

Human beings are in the most desperate need of forgiveness. Why? At the beginning of our history, Adam and Eve were tested. The Lord warned them not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and if they did, “moht tamoot - dying you will die.” They would most surely, most certainly die. Of

Running The Race And Fixing Our Eyes On Yeshua

The spirit is willing but the flesh, the old nature, is weak. One of the things that makes us weak is that we are easily distracted. We can lose focus on important things that are right before us than can result in serious injury or death to ourselves or others. Here’s one example: there are about 1.6 million crashes in

2 Corinthians 9:1-15 – More Lessons About Giving

What Gratitude Looks Like

What does gratitude look like? What does it mean to be thankful? First of all, there needs to be a recipient. You can’t give thanks to the air, or to an inanimate object. If you are grateful, it is to Someone! To get an idea of what true Thanks-giving looks like, this morning I’d like us to read and consider

The Need For Congregational Discipline

What church or congregation do you go to? It seems like a good question, but I am liking it less and less because it’s phrased in much the same way that we might ask someone: what supermarket do you go to?
