Deception in the End Times

The first sin started in the beginning with a lie and a deception (Genesis 3:4, 13). The first liar was Satan, and all further lies proceeded from him (John 8:44). As we grow near the end times, those lies and deceptions will reach their fullness. In Yeshua’s teaching about the end times on the Mount… Read more »

Feast of Tabernacles and the Millennial Kingdom

There are three biblical feasts in the spring, and three in the fall. The major events of the first coming of Yeshua (Jesus) occurred on the very dates of the spring holy days: Pesach (Passover) – Crucifixion Omer (First Fruits) – Resurrection Shavuot (weeks) – Holy Spirit Baptism By the same biblical logic, we see… Read more »

Personal Reflections of a Court Case

This past year offered some unprecedented opportunities to discuss our faith in the Israeli media. This included the educational television channel (Channel 1) and the largest Hebrew newspaper, Yediot. During this time I have also attended a local Sephardic orthodox synagogue, because I enjoy studying, praying and fellowshipping with them. A few weeks ago, one… Read more »

The Shavuot Pattern

Pentecost-Shavuot Prayer It is so simple. It is so profound. It is so earth shaking. It’s so exciting. Acts 2:17 – “In the end times I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh.” This has not happened yet. It really will happen. It will happen soon. When does this happen? – In the end times…. Read more »

Law of Perspective

There is a tendency for human beings to think they are right even when they are wrong. Wise King Solomon wrote: Proverbs 16:2 – All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart. Proverbs 16:25 – There is a way that seems right to a man,… Read more »

Rabbinic Judaism Lessons From The Book of Acts

There has been a continuing controversy among the Messianic pastors in Israel concerning our attitude toward religious Judaism and the Law of Moses. There is a small percentage (perhaps about 10%), who believe we should accept everything of Rabbinic Judaism; and another small percentage (perhaps about 20%), who believe we should reject everything of Rabbinic… Read more »

Abraham and Lot – “Why Did Lot Tarry?”

Abraham and Sarah were by no means perfect people. There were even aspects of their marriage that could be called quite dysfunctional. (He gave her to other men, and she gave to him another woman.) However they were people who also gave themselves to walk with the Lord in covenant integrity, despite their weaknesses. God… Read more »

Restoration of All Things

We believe in the biblical principle of restoration. God made everything in the world “very good”. (Genesis 1:31) Yet, Adam’s sin and Satan’s rebellion caused much destruction. God’s plan of redemption not only saves us from damnation, it also restores the damage that was caused. That restoration is first personal. Our spirit, soul, and body are redeemed…. Read more »

Keeping The Sabbath

When sharing the gospel in Israel, we have to deal with the question of whether we “keep the commandments.” When religious Jews say, “commandments,” they mix together the biblical commandments and the added rabbinic commandments. If we say “No,” we have lost the authority of the scriptures. If we say “Yes,” they ask about which… Read more »
