One-Ness in God’s Love

I believe that when a person knows he has reached the end of his life, his last words and parting message are the most important and meaningful of all that he has spoken throughout his life. In 2 Timothy 4:1-8 Paul, knowing he was nearing the end of his life, spoke his last words to… Read more »

Forgiveness

The general atmosphere here in Israel during the Autumn “high holiday” biblical feast season is one of repentance. Many people (even atheists) ask each other for forgiveness, at least on a superficial level, leading up to the Day of Atonement. In Matthew 18:15-22 we read Yeshua’s teaching on forgiveness. “…if your brother sins against you,… Read more »

Season Of Rain

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). God planned life’s events to have an appointed time to begin and to end. Solomon’s words flow from a life enriched by many seasons and experiences. There are four natural seasons:  Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each transitions from one… Read more »

THE FRIENDSHIP PARADOX

On the one hand we hear that we need each other, that it’s not good to be alone, that friends are forever. On the other hand we hear that all we need is Yeshua, He is all-sufficient and provides all our needs. Both of these are true, and so we are faced with something of… Read more »

How We Look At Each Other

Matthew 5 gives an account of when Yeshua addressed a large crowd of people on the Mount of Beatitudes. He proclaimed: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are… Read more »

The Test & Temptation of Accomplishments

Life is full of times of testing. Toward the end of his life, I see King Hezekiah in the midst of a test (2 Chronicles 32:31). Throughout his reign, in spite of great adversity he had accomplished much. Then, when the Babylonians came and “lusted” after the fruit of his labors, the condition of King Hezekiah’s heart was… Read more »

The Feet of Other Disciples

In John 13 we read the account of Yeshua washing the disciples’ feet. This happened during the time of the feast of Passover (celebrated this year at the beginning of April). We note that even up until this very day, in this annual ceremony, before the Passover meal (seder), the person leading the Seder washes… Read more »

The Heart of a Giver

“Is this not the fast that I have chosen; To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;… Read more »

The True Light

In the first chapter of John we read of a man sent from God to bear witness of the Light. Yeshua is the true Light which gives light to every person in the world. We go on to read that the world did not know him and that even His own did not receive Him (John… Read more »

I.D.ENTITY

Who am I? Most people ask this question at one time or another. We hide behind a fence that builds a ghetto around us. Moroccan, Yemenite, Brazilian, Argentinian, Ethiopian, American, Afro-American and so on. These associations come from the areas where we grew up and the culture within them. Even in the time of Yeshua… Read more »
