Evangelism is very important. It’s at the heart of what we, as followers of the Messiah, are all about. Each one of us must be actively involved in evangelism - for quite a few reasons: Our Lord Yeshua was actively involved in evangelism, and we are to be like Him. Matthew 9: Yeshua went through all the towns and villages,
If someone asked you: “What is the essence of your religion?”, what would you answer? Keeping the 10 commandments and being a good person. Not a good answer. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Good answer. Being saved by grace through faith. Good answer. Knowing the Gospel, living the Gospel and proclaiming the Gospel. Good answer. My answer
This week Rabbi Loren, Rabbi Glenn, and Rebbetzin Alexandra discussed Proverbs 12 together.
Psalm 105: Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Those who know the Lord are to tell the nations what He has done. And the greatest thing the Lord has done is send the Son of God from Heaven to Earth on a great rescue mission. The Son of God
If you knew you had less than 24 hours to live, what would do? If I knew I had less than 24 hours to live, I would speak to the most important people in my life and give them my final thoughts and instructions. Yeshua was in that situation. He knew He was about to die. He knew He was
If you knew that you had less than 24 hours to live, what would do? If I knew I had less than 24 hours to live, I would speak to the most important people in my life and give them my final thoughts and instructions. Yeshua was in that situation. He knew He was about to die. He knew He
After being a follower of the Lord for 43 years, and after serving Him in full-time ministry for 38 years, it’s become crystal clear to me that it’s impossible for a person to grow to spiritual maturity apart from being an active member of a local community of Messiah’s followers. There are reasons for this: God designed us to function
This morning, I want to talk about something that the Word of God mentions quite a bit, and that is Yirat Adonai, the fear of the Lord. When it comes to persons, there are two kinds of fear: a good, healthy kind of fear and a bad, unhealthy kind of fear. The good kind of fear: You know someone is
We come into this world selfish, self-absorbed, thinking only of ourselves. A baby is all about itself, its desires, its wants, its needs being met. As we mature, we become more concerned about the needs of others. This is love - being concerned about the needs of others; wanting what is good for others. Love is the opposite of selfishness.
When asked, “What is the miracle of Chanukkah?” the common response is: “Chanukkah is about a miracle that took place when the Jewish people fought against the Syrians who had invaded Jerusalem and desecrated the Temple. The Temple was dedicated to Zeus and pigs were sacrificed there. The Syrians forbid the Jewish people from practicing Judaism. They intended to wipe
Moishe Rosen, the founder of Jews for Jesus, was very special. He was wise. And he was an activist for the proclamation of the Gospel. Moishe understood that followers of the Messiah who proclaim the message about the Messiah will experience controversy. Controversy is to be expected. It is not to be feared. In fact, it is to be welcomed.
The Lord used two men to be the primary influences for my ministry. One was Dr. Louis Goldberg, of blessed memory, who was the head of the Jewish Studies program when I attended Moody Bible Institute. The other was Moishe Rosen, the founder of Jews for Jesus, also of blessed memory. Moishe was very special. He was wise. And he
God has designed the world with variations. There is normal weather, and also times of drought and flood, and extreme cold and heat and wind. The pleasantness of spring and summer are followed by fall and the austerity of winter. The Earth has many level places, like the great plains of the United States, but also mountains and valleys. When
Genesis 6:9-11:32 To better understand ourselves and the world we live in, we want to know our history - where we came from; how we got here; who are ancestors were; what they believed in; and the important things that happened to them. This part of Genesis does that for us. In it, Moses focuses on one man, Noah, and
I usually give you the title of the message before I speak. This week I’m not doing that. I want to do something different. I want to read five passages; and I want you to discern the common theme - which is related to the title. The first passage is Isaiah 56. It begins with an invitation for the wild
In ancient times, the Jewish people blew the shofar for many reasons. One reason was, when an enemy was approaching, the watchman blew the shofar to warn the people so they had time to find a place of safety. There are valuable lessons to be learned from the watchman. In Ezekiel 33, the Lord gave Ezekiel two situations involving the
This week Rabbi Loren and Rebbetzin Martha Jacobs, along with Rabbi Glenn and Rebbetzin Alexandra Harris discussed Proverbs 16.
Not too long ago, someone from Shema attended a church service in which the pastor said God is not a fighter. His purposes are not achieved through fighting, but through sacrifice, sharing and generosity. The implication is that we should not be fighters too. While at first hearing it sounds right, it’s not right. Here’s why: The Word of God
Yeshua is the Most Amazing Man Who Ever Lived. I like so many things about Him. Here are some of the things I like about Him that come from the biography written about Him by His friend and disciple, John. I like when a king makes a grand entrance. I especially like Yeshua’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem: A great crowd
