Feet of Yeshua

The expression “feet of Yeshua” has a five-fold meaning in Scriptures: parts of it present, past and future. 1. Devotional Intimacy Perhaps the most well-known meaning today comes from the special, intimate, devotional expression we find in Miriam (Mary), one of Yeshua’s closest disciples. Luke 10:39 – Miriam sat at Yeshua’s feet and heard His… Read more »

Whom He Foreknew

Twice in the book of Romans Paul (Saul) uses the term “foreknew”. Both times it refers to the destiny that God has – first for an individual, and second for a nation. “Whom He foreknew, He predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son” (Romans 8:29). God has a destiny, a pre-designed plan,… Read more »

The Name of Messiah Prophesied

Sometimes we are asked if there is a prophecy in the Torah that the name of the Messiah is Yeshua. There are dozens of references to the name as the word for salvation, Yeshuah. For example: YHVH… has become for me Yeshuah (salvation) (Exodus 15:1-2). The orthodox Jewish prayer for the coming of Messiah contains Yeshuah… Read more »

As in the Days

When Yeshua taught about His Second Coming, He compared it to the flood of Noah and the destruction of Sodom. Those were real historical events, yet they also serve as patterns for what will come upon the earth in the end times. “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also… Read more »

Power of the Cross

The message of the gospel contains power. If salvation was only legal permission to go to heaven instead of hell, then no essential power would be needed. The power is to change us – to change us from within, to change our character. “The gospel … is the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16). The word… Read more »

Triangle of Intimacy

My favorite prayer in the Bible is John 17. There is a flow of logic and priorities in this prayer:   1. Oneness – intimacy with God   2. Holiness – separation from the world   3. Glory – manifest power of God in the saints   4. Unity – fullness of the Church (Ecclesia)   5. Witness – world… Read more »

There are two mentions of relationships between parents and children in the Ten Commandments.

Authority, Discipleship and the Great Commission

In Matthew’s version of the “Great Commission,” there is a profound connection between authority and discipleship. Notice the word authority in verse 18 and disciples in verse 19. Yeshua has authority, therefore we make disciples. Discipleship is a response to Yeshua’s authority. “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore… Read more »

Intimacy

The most precious thing in life is intimacy. Intimacy is first and foremost with God, and secondly with humans. It is the pearl of great price that we should sell all to obtain. Intimacy comes from a personal relationship with God through faith in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. Abraham became a friend of God (Isaiah… Read more »
