Why Tribulation?!

There will be increasing tribulation in the end times. It is not that God desires difficulties for us; however, there are reasons that these spiritual battles “must” take place.

Running From Trouble?

When we speak about “tribulation,” many think immediately about end times’ scenarios. However, we also need to look at our general attitude toward adversity. How is the normal believer to react to times of trouble? The New Covenant Greek word thlipsis is translated as “tribulation, affliction, trouble, anguish, persecution, burden and pressure.” It appears 45 times in the… Read more »

Also Executor of the Wrath of God

But we haven’t known Him as YHVH-Yeshua, the commander of the armies of heaven, the judge of all the earth, the executor of the wrath of God, the omnipotent and “pantokratic” (all-ruling) king.

Hannah to Hannah

I am amazed at the prayer of Hannah (the mother of Samuel the Prophet).  It seems that every good thing in the Bible (or elsewhere) starts with a woman praying.  It is often a woman in a desperate situation, praying a desperate prayer. Hannah was preceded by Sarah, Rivka, Rachel, Miriam, and all the Jewish… Read more »

Passover-Two Parts

Passover-Two Parts   From Revive Israel The salvation at the Passover was both personal and corporate. Each family put the blood of the Paschal Lamb on the two door jambs and the lintel; then they ate the flesh of the Lamb.
