Three Goals of Teamwork

Many years ago, when I looked at the promises in the Bible concerning Israel, the Church, the Messianic Remnant and the End Times, I came to the conclusion that no one is strong, wise or righteous enough to fulfill them. If God was calling us to be involved, we had to work together as a… Read more »

Rabbinic Literature

Over the past 2,000 years a vast sea of literature has developed in traditional Judaism, starting with the Mishnah (codified in the early third century CE) and the Gemarah (mid fifth century CE). (Note: The New Covenant was written by the end of the first century CE – which means that it far precedes these… Read more »

The Exodus Experience

Recently I was meditating on how central the “baptism” experience is to New Covenant faith (Acts 2:38 -“Repent and be immersed everyone of you…”).  It seemed as central as … as … and then it hit me: as central as crossing the Red Sea was for the people of ancient Israel.  Immersion in water is… Read more »

The Discipling Difference

Yeshua (Jesus) taught the multitudes in public meetings, and He also taught the twelve in a small group setting. What’s the difference, and why? Preaching to the multitudes had the emphasis of the great commission in Mark 16; teaching in the small group setting had the emphasis of the great commission in Matthew 28. We… Read more »

School of the Prophets

A key part of our discipleship program is two hours, from 9 to 11 in the morning, when we praise the Lord and train the young people to develop the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit. It’s kind of a school for prophets (and other kinds of ministry), drawing on a pattern from Samuel’s ministry… Read more »

Yeshua’s Ministry Pattern

Israel Revival Strategy

Revival in Israel is on the way. We can be sure of that because the Bible promises that “All Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:26). That is the banner cry of our ministry. Yet before all Israel will be saved, there will be 144,000 Israelis who will be saved (Revelation 7:4). And before the 144,000… Read more »

The Three Dimensional Kingdom

As God made man in three dimensions – spirit, soul and body – so has He designed the Kingdom of God. After Yeshua (Jesus) was raised from the dead, He spent forty days with His disciples in an intensive teaching program, “speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God” (Acts 1:3).  In the… Read more »

King of the Jews

One March 29 I had an unusual dream: I saw a close up of Yeshua being crucified, and of the sign being nailed over His head, reading “King of the Jews.” In this dream the hand that was nailing the sign was my own hand. It reminded me that Mel Gibson, in the movie “The… Read more »

Me Too

Everyone is affected in some way by pornography, abortion, sexual harassment, homo-les-bi-trans, divorce, adultery, pedophilia, carnal entertainment, seductive advertising and so on. Sometimes I also feel “abused” by this whole metro-sexual mess (“Me Too”). Pictures I don’t even want to see seem to “pop up” and appear everywhere. Everyone wants to do their own “thing,” but… Read more »
