Reasonings of the Heart–A Yom Kippur Message

Listen, as Derek shares a special Yom Kippur Message (with intimate insights into 2 Corinthians 10), and calls to attention the subtle reasonings of the mind which so often challenge the authority and truth of the word of Elohim. If our flesh is submitted to what the Creator says is true, the enemy has no leverage to use our flesh against…

A Journey of Reconciliation

Shabbat Shalom, With great humility, I have finally decided to release what I shared at my dad’s “celebration of life” on April 14, 2016. My prayer is that we all operate in the spirit of reconciliation, for only until reconciliation occurs, can there be a resurrection. And only until the resurrection occurs, can there be the restoration of all things.…

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…

Yom Kippur – Not Just a Fast

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), the day of finalities, the summation of the 40 days of repentance, the completion of the 10 Days of Awe. What does it all mean?

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”. It is a song that describes the faithfulness of Father. It begins with: Here I am, down on my knees, Outside the sun is rising I’m moved by the voice of the…
