In a Day It Will Happen

I have so much anticipation for the Day of Atonement! Also known as Yom Kippur, it is the highest holy day of the year on the Jewish calendar. On this day, the High Priest made an atoning sacrifice for sin to restore the relationship between God and His people (Leviticus 16:5–10). We know that in…

Judaism Is a Love Relationship

Judaism was born out of a deep love relationship between the Holy One of Israel and His covenant people (Isaiah 49:7). God loved the fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and He loves their children, the Jewish people. One of my biggest heartbreaks comes when I hear people talk about Judaism as being a religion filled…

Trees Have Healing Qualities

God in His goodness created wholesome food to sustain, nourish, and heal our physical bodies. Part of this diet includes “every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you” (Genesis 1:29).[i] When Ezekiel saw a vision of water flowing from the Temple, he observed “all kinds of trees for food ……

We Are Ambassadors of God’s Love

Yeshua (Jesus) has an amazing destiny for your life! To be aligned with His purpose, you must have a drive to know God and receive a deep experience of His love for you. As the apostle of love reminds us, “We love, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).[i] When you are overwhelmed by…

god-is-a-will

God Is a Will

What is God? He is a will. The whole earth and all creation were created because God said, “Let there be …” (Genesis 1:3).[i] You can rephrase that. God said, “I will that there be light. I will that there be the earth” (see Genesis 1:3, 10). Everything about God is His will. When the…

The Rich Root of the Olive Tree

The book of Isaiah contains a beautiful passage about the restoration of Judah, a prophecy that we see being fulfilled in the nation of Israel today.   “The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward.” (Isaiah 37:31)[i]   Why is Israel fruitful and abounding in blessings?…

imagine-that

Imagine That!

Nothing is stronger than your imagination. You can use your imagination in a very positive sense to bring yourself into the presence of the Lord. Focus on how wonderful He is, how much He loves you, and how He wants to be with you. Read His Word prayerfully and picture yourself walking in it. Clothe…

Believe in God’s Goodness

We know God is love, but I want you to see that God is also good—really good! His very personality is goodness and everything He does and everything He creates is good because He puts Himself into it. After bringing forth life and vegetation on the earth, “God saw all that He had made, and…

should-christians-evangelize-the-jewish-people

Should Christians Evangelize the Jewish People?

I want to open our hearts concerning the relationship Christianity should have with the Jewish people. Abraham believed God “and He reckoned it to him as righteousness” (Genesis 15:6).[i] According to the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon, the Hebrew word for righteousness means “righteousness as vindicated, justification, salvation.”[ii] That is very clear. Abraham received what…

You Are the Throne Room of God

You know that “God sits on His holy throne” (Psalms 47:8),[i] but I want you to recognize that our hearts are His throne room. Christ dwells in and among each one of us: “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst” (Matthew 18:20). In your worship,…

Save the Children

Yeshua (Jesus) was asked: “Who is my neighbor?” and He responded with a parable. A man was left by the side of the road after being robbed and beaten. No one helped him until the Good Samaritan came near, saw his great need, and had compassion on him. He bound up the stranger’s wounds with…

Judaism’s Heart of Inclusion

As Christians, we know that God has a heart of inclusion. We must realize that He is both our Father and the Father of the Jewish people. In His covenant promises to the Jews, He said, “It is impossible for Me to break My covenant with these people. As long as the sun comes up…

God’s Love for His People

God, Who is love, wants His children to love each other. We are to reflect our Father’s exact nature. Even our faith works through this deep expression of love (see Galatians 5:6). Our fervent love for God and His children includes a deep love and acceptance for all of Israel as well. The Father loves…

Bridging Understanding Between Christians and Jews

Over 3,000 years ago, God promised the Land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants forever (Genesis 12:7; Luke 1:55). Israel today is a land of miracles. Many of the battles and wars since Israel’s independence in 1948 can only be explained by God’s faithfulness to His covenant promises with Abraham. If you are aware…

Do You Hunger to Know God?

Have you ever experienced a deep hunger to know God in all of His love, power, and righteousness? You can cultivate your hunger for God. God moves by the principle of hunger. Did your mother tell you not to eat before dinner because it would spoil your appetite? If you feed on the things of…

For the Sake of Our Brothers and Friends

As members of the Body of Christ, we must recognize that in the heart of Israel there is a sincere love for the Arab nations. You cannot say that Arabs are against peace, nor can you say Israelis are against peace. Instead, you must recognize that there are radical elements who live for the annihilation…

God’s Lovingkindness Is Everlasting

Our Father loves us! God is love and everything He does is good and is filled with His love (1 John 4:16). As the psalmist says, “His lovingkindness is everlasting” (Psalm 136:1). God is so in love with all the people of the world that He sent His Son to free us “that whoever believes…

Simple, Childlike Faith

I want you to have a simple meeting with God that will change your life. It has to be very personal to you. It cannot be what someone else experienced; it must be your experience. “The whole earth is full of His glory” (Isaiah 6:3).[i] We are headed for some fantastic days and the limitations…

Expect a Great Outpouring

God has spoken many promises for this generation and we want to see them fulfilled here on earth. The Body of Christ today is a generation of destiny. It is time for us to rise up, step into our destiny, and become what the Lord needs in the earth today.   The time between Passover…

Prepared and Driven for God’s Will

During the fifty days between Passover and Pentecost, God was at work in the hearts and minds of the disciples. The Father was bringing them out of their confusion and misperceptions to prepare them to move under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Each one came to the end of himself to be completely surrendered…

stand-in-your-place

Stand in Your Place

Following the resurrection of Christ Jesus our Lord, the disciples were given no specific guidelines about how to set up a church. All they had was a relationship with Him. They had to reach in daily to hear His voice, so that Yeshua (Jesus) could come forth within a body of people by the Holy…

God Executes Justice for the Orphan and the Widow—Deuteronomy 10:18

The Bible is a story about God’s family and the covenant He made with Abraham, “IN YOUR SEED ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED” (Acts 3:25).[i] When Peter spoke on the Day of Pentecost, he connected the Jews back to that family relationship: “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God…

the-family-of-god-are-children-of-abraham

The Family of God Are Children of Abraham

If you want to find a relationship with God, you will find it in the relationship of being children of Abraham. God is making Himself real by virtue of the relationship with His people. The blood of Yeshua (Jesus) opened the door for Gentiles to be grafted into the covenant promises of the children of…

Fervent Love Ends Division

When God commands something, He empowers us to do it. He is determined to bring the Body of Christ together into unity and love. But we must reach in for God’s love and cannot work it up in ourselves. It comes from the power of Christ and His Word.   Yeshua (Jesus) never told His…

“Pure and Faultless Religion”—James 1:27

The Book of James was written around A.D. 48 while the early church was still predominantly Jewish. James, the brother of our Lord and bishop of the church in Jerusalem, addressed his letter to “the twelve tribes” of Israel and gave practical guidelines about how we are to love and care for each other as…

Peter’s Passover Story

God commanded Israel to celebrate the Passover, “And you shall observe this event as an ordinance for you and your children forever” (Exodus 12:24 NASB95). It was to be a night of remembrance. God wanted His people to never forget how He delivered them out of Egypt with a powerful hand. It was to be…

The Judgment of the Gods

When God opens a door through the biblical feast of Passover, it is because there is something in it that we are to experience in our lives today. And like the Israelites, we are to come out of bondage.   We tend to look at the Tanakh (Old Testament) as things happening on the natural…

Delivered to Stand in His Presence

As Christians, we recognize the importance of our salvation experience through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross during this time of Passover. The blood of Christ is a grace and a covering, as well as a tremendous provision for us when we fail or stumble. But God intends for us to have much more! On the…

Both Lord and King of Your Life

It is easy to look forward to the return of Yeshua (Jesus) and simply wait passively for Him to come. But great rewards are available to those who use the time wisely to make preparations, inside and out. He should be both our Lord and Savior now, not just then. And if we learn to…

Am I Committed to Unity?

It is time for the great witness of the Messiah Yeshua to come forth in the earth, and according to His prayer in John 17, that witness is a result of the oneness of the Body of Christ.   “… that they may all be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You,…

We Prepare to Enter the Presence of the King

The Feast of Purim, also known as the Feast of Esther, is a time of great celebration in which the Jewish people rejoice in God’s deliverance for them from death and destruction. Symbolically, this feast anticipates the final vanquishing of satan from the earth for all mankind. As Christians and allies of the Jewish people,…

Until Christ Is Formed in You

As followers of Christ, we know that the Word of God is essential to our spiritual growth. We must read it, study it, meditate on it, apply it, and live it.   “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).   But the reason…

The Land and Presence of Promise

I love the land of Israel. I do everything I can to visit as often as possible. If you have never experienced the Holy Land, I urge you to start planning to make the trip as soon as you can—because I am sure that once you have been there, you will be forever changed by…

Christ Saw You from the Cross

While in a time of fasting and prayer some years ago, the Lord made real to me that as Christ went through the suffering of the cross, He saw the face of every human being who had ever been on the earth. He saw the face of every human being who was on the earth…
