A Loving Father Teaches His Children to Be Holy

Today’s Torah portion is the section I was born under, long, long ago. 😇 It is called Yithro and goes from Exodus 18:1 through 20:26. In honor of my loving Father, here are the 10 commandments that this section encompasses. I hope you are having, or had, a blessed Sabbath. Shavua tov! (Have a goodContinue reading “A Loving Father Teaches His Children to Be Holy”

Stand still and see the Salvation of YHVH

Today’s Torah reading is packed with goodness! The children of Israel are finally leaving Egypt, but the Egyptian army is chasing them. Fear grips their hearts but Moses assures the people that Yeshua, the Salvation of YHVH, will protect them, even fight for them! The next verse is the featured image of this post. “YHVHContinue reading “Stand still and see the Salvation of YHVH”

Jots AND a Tittle

Twenty years ago, when reading the above verse, I would not have been able to tell you what a jot or tittle was. I would have thought it meant a small letter or stroke of a pen.

Gentiles in Acts

“For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath.” – Acts 15:21 Moses being read every Sabbath… We’ll come back to that. Let me tell you a little story. There was once a little girl who grew up in a strict church homeContinue reading “Gentiles in Acts”

Then I pleaded…

Ah!… Deuteronomy, one of my favorite books ever. Moses pulls out all the stops in this final book; knowing too well that these special people, Yah’s segulah, special treasures, will fall away from the Truth after he’s gone. But he pleads nonetheless. He pleads with the Creator and he pleads with his people. He pleadsContinue reading “Then I pleaded…”
