Exhortation to Overcome

As believers in Messiah Yahushua, we are all called to overcome and to let our lights shine in the darkness. That means we stand out from the darkness. Kepha (Peter) became our example of how ‘not’ to share in the sufferings of the Light of Truth when he denied knowing the Master Yahushua three times. What a dear and precious…

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…

What Do You Believe?

While talking to Father today, this ‘truth’ began to form within me… When truth comes, healing comes. When Messiah Yahushua showed up, healing came for people. But what is the primary purpose for healing? In Isaiah 53, what is healing in conjunction with? Salvation from our sins! So, yes, of course He wants His people well, but healings are mainly…

A Call For Unity—Returning to the Ancient Ways (Parts I and II)

A call for unity for all aviv barley search teams, whether Messianic, Jew, or Karaite, to come together and standardize a process for determining a uniform definition of “aviv barley”, based upon the Scriptural requirements necessary to proclaim the month of aviv. An agreeable process for determining the beginning of the Biblical year MUST be established for all who desire…

One Last Breath on the Aviv Barley 2016 — A Personal Cry for Unity

Shabbat Shalom, Rivkah and I have continued to receive more questioning regarding the “floating” aviv barley reports, that seem to be drifting into the “air space” of concerned believers. “Who’s report are we to believe?”, they ask. If we go by Isaiah 53:1–it is to whom Yahuweh reveals His “Barley Sheaf”, that will determine what report to believe. Recently, a…

A Special Message of Preparation – Passover, 2016

Hear this special message of preparation for all of Yahuweh’s set-apart ones. Today is the day for His set-apart ones to be hidden under the wings of the Almighty. He is gathering His chicks around Him. Today is the day of the beginnings of separation, and the thrust towards the ushering in of Messiah Yahushua–our Passover Lamb. To listen and/or…

A Life Worth Fighting For

“Choose life? Yes.. choosing life is sometimes the hardest thing we ever have to do because death is so easy to live under. Life is something fought for.. and His life is something He wants to give us if we only choose Him and follow after Him and His commandments. This is life and because of it, our earthly body…

No Sacrifice, No Harvest

“I have come as a light into the world, so that no one who believes in Me should stay in darkness.” John 12:46 (ISR) “And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.” John 11:43 (KJV) Just the other day, I substituted for an 8th grade math class. It was during the 8th period…

Let Us Do For Him

Ever since the day that Sha’ul (Paul) came to visit us, one Shabbat afternoon, while living in Florida, I have felt so close to my brother in Messiah. I had been sharing some revelations that I received in the book of Galatians. I was sitting on the floor, passionately going through one of the chapters, and explaining what I had…

The Light Shines in the Darkness

To be honest, we did not feel like going anywhere today. We have gone every Shabbat for 4 weeks because others have been out of town. However, we know that every time we go, we are the one that gets “ministered” to…our spirits leap and He gives us more energy and joy over sharing His Word than anything else. Plus,…

To See Through His Eyes…

Last Shabbat morning, as we woke up, my prayer was, “Father, let me see each person we feed through your eyes. Allow me to hear Your Spirit on how to pray or what to say to each individual…what You want to say to each person.” As we were serving food and drinks to the homeless, we ask them how they…

The Jew-Gentile Fallacy

Shabbat Shalom, I wanted to share some correspondence I had a while back through a letter concerning some confusion about ‘Gentiles’. Please use this as your own springboard to study. It is the enemy who causes confusion, strife and division. I do not claim to know all, but I realize that if I remain soft, pliable, teachable under the tutoring of…

Possess Your Lives

In Luke 21, Messiah is speaking about the tribulation…Right in the middle of it, He says in verse 19 “Possess your lives by your endurance!” You see, the value of what we possess (own) is measured by our endurance (perseverance under pressure) to hold onto it. It is only through pressure that our endurance is tested, necessary to retain the…

Cure for the Crushed

How many of us have been crushed – in a sense of a bruising of spirit? People are crushed by other people, whether through their death, relationships or the weight of daily life and circumstances, it is the interaction with people — both those we love and those strangers we rely upon to handle our precious business, that impact our…

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. It was this morning, as I sat down to read our Psalm for the day, I…

Shavuot – Find Your Place Inside

Today is Shavuot – the day we celebrate, according to Leviticus 23, the giving of the Torah and the giving of the Spirit of Yahuweh by Messiah Yahushua. We have been in transitional mode now for awhile, and know that our blogs have been few and far between. However, I wanted to share with you a quick word of thanksgiving…

The Call To Unleavened Worship

Shabbat Shalom! As we prepare to enter the Passover week, we wanted to share (or should we say re-share) an article previously written about worship. Not only worship, but ‘unleavened’ worship. What is unleavened worship? It is the simple, pure worship that results from being de-contaminated of the leaven in our lives through allowing His oil, His wick, His flame to…

The Key is the Heart

This study investigates various issues many believers do not wish to discuss because they are either too shameful to mention or perhaps the issues are completely unknown to them. Some of the questions discussed are: Why do I still struggle with sin? Why do I still feel guilty though I have been forgiven of my sins? Can I lose my salvation?…

Come Back Into Focus

“Come back into focus” These were the words I received while riding on the bus yesterday from the town to our little community. As I began pondering the words in my heart, while walking the dusty road back to the house, I could not help thinking of my love of photography. I have always loved taking photographs using a shallow…
