Prepare for the Perfect Storm

Matthew 24 describes a number of extreme events – some of which have already happened, and some of which will happen soon. Those historical events relate to the terrible AD 70 devastation of Jerusalem at the hands of Roman General Titus. The future events relate to Yeshua’s second coming. This prophetic chapter is therefore like… Read more »

Pastor says that protesting the U.S. election is proof that Satan has woken up the church. Really?

Today I saw a post from a well-known Christian leader in the USA that said this: “The devil has made a strategic mistake and has awakened the Church! Stay tuned!” Considering that this prophetic minister prophesied a Trump victory, and seeing that the initial response to this tweet from others was the assumption that he… Read more »

In the past twenty years I have travelled all over the world – to Europe: to Austria, Germany, Holland, Ireland and England; through the United States and to the Far East – for Toward Jerusalem Council II meetings. Toward Jerusalem Council II is an effort of Messianic Jewish leaders and Church leaders to see every… Read more »

While staying at our hotel during the time we were teaching at the New Jerusalem Congregation outside Wheaton, Illinois, I happened to hear an interview where the black person being interviewed gave one of the better presentations of white privilege.  Unfortunately, I did not get his name.  I think it was on ABC on Saturday… Read more »

Cleaning Up the Mess in the Charismatic Prophetic World – Part 3

Opening the Seals In the book of Daniel, the prophet is told 4 times to seal the book (khotem חותם) and 3 times to shut it (sotem סותם).

Cleaning Up the Mess in the Charismatic Prophetic World – Part 2

Jezebel and Balaam Unfortunately, much worldliness and carnality has come into our congregations.  This must be rooted out, starting with our own hearts. We must keep ourselves separated from worldly influence, particularly from sexual immorality shown so repeatedly in all forms of media and entertainment. Separation from worldly influence is a pre-requisite to any kind… Read more »

I just heard another one proclaim it this morning. “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem!

Soldiers and Kibbutzniks: Heroes of the Golan

Massive stone reinforced bunkers and metal silhouettes of soldiers greet me, as I arrive at the peak of Mt. Bental in the Golan Heights. Morning wind whips across the top of the hill, while a cool mist surrounds it, gradually being burned off under the August sun. To the north, Mt. Hermon, brown and snowless,… Read more »

Seven Mountains and the Accusation of Being too Political

Some of my friends have argued that Trump lost the election because Evangelicals idolized Trump too much, and God was not pleased.  It is said that they were too much into politics and not enough emphasizing the Gospel and revival.  I really cannot judge this conclusion.  I know this was not true of most of… Read more »
