The Sign of Baal Appears

Shalom, Rivkah and I would like to pass along a short video for you to view concerning the critical stage we have reached here in the United States. Daily, we are seeing that what is inside of man’s heart, is surfacing. It is as if Yahuweh is turning the hearts of man inside out so that what was once kept…

The New Moon of Tishrei Sighted! Chag Sameach!

Joy and Shalom! Greetings in the wondrous name of Yahuweh and our Master Yahushua–Our soon coming Messiah! We just received report of the new moon being sighted in Jerusalem by two witnesses. It is bitter/sweet because last month, the two witnesses were Yedidah and I. We rejoice, however, not because sunset tonight (September 2nd, 2016) begins a new creation calendar…

The Valley of Elah

View this short visit to the Valley of Elah, where David took down Goliath. Just as it was then, with the wicked defying the Elohim of the set-apart ones, so it is today, in a very similar showdown–yet a showdown of a much greater scope. The battle in the Valley of Elah is a shadow picture of the final elimination of the wicked, as they will all soon gather in the greatest battlefield of all time–the Jezreel Valley.

Jerusalem – My Chief Joy

  Boker Tov (Good Morning), Last night, as we sat and watched the video from Steven ben-DeNun, who reported on the recent United States Supreme Court decision of refusing to recognize Jerusalem as a part of Israel, we sat and wept in our spirit.

We Will Not Be Moved

This Shabbat morning, as I sat rocking back and forth on my couch, holding firmly in my hand the tzitzit of the tallit I was under, tears flowed as I recalled the images in my mind of one of the Rabbi’s blood soaked tzitzit from the horrific attack in the Har Nof Synagogue in Jerusalem on November 18th. Who could…

Behind the Veil

“So, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Set-apart Place by the blood of Yahushua, by a new and living way which He instituted for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the House of Elohim, let us draw near with a true heart in completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled from…

Consistency of Actions

Boker Tov, Shabbat Shalom, Early this morning, I woke up with three words, “consistency of actions”. One of my favorite songs is by Chuck Girard, “Here I Am”.

A Long Journey…

It has been awhile since we have written. We made a promise to Yahuweh before we moved…to record all the miracles He did along the way and to give HIM all the kavod (glory). It has taken us some time to get settled here…not that we are completely settled yet! And it has not been a smooth road, BUT Abba…

Stand Tall – The Sun is Setting

“Arise, shine, for your light has come! And the esteem of Yahuweh has risen upon you. For look, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness the peoples. But Yahuweh arises over you, and His esteem is seen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1,2) Yahuweh lifted David’s head because David’s head was bowed low in humility. When Yahuweh lifts the head, we can…

A Day of Remembering

This morning as I sat and drank my coffee in the early morning hours before the sun rose, I remembered my Grandparents anniversary (March 12, 1938). 76 Years ago today, my Grandparents tied the knot and I’m sure they are celebrating it today.…

Have you ever heard the saying, “You only really need 2% of what you own?” This statement is so true! We fill our lives with things we really don’t need. The other day, this saying came to my mind and I immediately received in my spirit this statement… Just like we only really need 2% ofthe stuff we own, when we…
