The Kingdom Surprise

C. S. Lewis entitled his auto-biography, “Surprised by Joy.” He did not expect to find any ultimate meaning in life, but was surprised by the work of the Spirit who led him to Yeshua. Often when God brings wonderful surprises, they do not fit into our expectations and we miss the blessing God is seeking to bring…. Read more »


Jacob’s Generation

  Dima God is raising up a new generation of young believers in Israel. I believe this generation has a very important role to prepare the way for the last harvest to come. Most young people my age were born here; we have grown up in Israeli society, studied in Israeli schools and served in… Read more »


The Heavenly Man

Last month we saw that the Messiah was first understood as being David’s Greater Son who would restore the Kingdom to Israel (Acts 1: 6). Then we saw how Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah’s kingdom would extend throughout the whole earth, on a higher spiritual level. (Part 2 of David’s Greater Son – A Jewish Perspective on… Read more »


David’s Greater Son

Part 1: Ruler of the Kingdom of Israel The faith of ancient Israel started with one man – Abraham – and his family. That family then grew to a tribe, and ultimately to a people. As that people found a homeland in Canaan, they began to organize themselves as a nation. The nation needed a… Read more »

It was a pivotal year in history; 1948 – only three years after a war that had engulfed the world. That conflict introduced weapons of destruction on such a massive scale that mankind has been trying to ban them ever since. New nations were being born (Republic of Korea) and old ones were either being… Read more »


The Replacement Theology Challenge Today

A dear friend works in a church connected to an apostolic leader who has just published a book that argues for replacement theology. As most teachers who hold to this very wrong theology, he does not like to call his theology “replacement” but “fulfillment.” According to this view, the church is the ongoing meaning of… Read more »


Who Can We Trust To Teach Us?

“Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” (James 3:1) Who is Trustworthy? Who can we trust as our teachers in the Body of the Messiah? This question becomes quite pressing when we consider the conflicting doctrinal positions of those professing… Read more »


To Bind Up The Broken Hearted

Idan’s Testimony I was born in Tel Aviv, in 1984. My father’s parents came to Israel from Yemen. My mother was born in Beit Shemesh, and her parents came to Israel from Morocco. I grew up in a traditionally Jewish home. About ten years after my parents married, my father came to faith in Yeshua…. Read more »


The Harvest

I remember harvesting when we were hippie farmers in New Mexico. A lot of work went into each crop before we could gather the fruits of our labors into storage for the winter. But there was nothing like the thrill of finally collecting ripe food from the earth. Not haphazardly did God choose the image… Read more »
