Prejudice in the bible

Before we look at two instances of prejudice in the bible, I have a true story for you. It happened at this year’s Thanksgiving that my cousin’s oldest daughter, Michele, hosted. Present were Michele and her new husband, her sister, Brooke, their mother who is my cousin and her husband, who had just completed aContinue reading “Prejudice in the bible”

David’s Story Mirrors Yeshua’s Story

As I’m reading through 1 Samuel, it occurs to me how similar David’s story is to Yeshua’s. Even the characters are the same. David would be Yeshua and Jonathan would be John, the Apostle Yeshua loves. The Philistine Goliath would be figuratively the Devil and Saul would be Saul/the Pharisees. It is uncanny, the similarities!Continue reading “David’s Story Mirrors Yeshua’s Story”

Isaac, a picture of Messiah

Welcome back friends. Today we have two witnesses of Isaac being a picture of, or a foreshadowing of the Messiah in this week’s Torah portion, and they’re only 31 verses apart. Turn with me to our first one in Genesis 21:5. It reads, and I worded it in the same order the Hebrew words it:Continue reading “Isaac, a picture of Messiah”

ET (את) Gates of Their Enemies

In this week’s Torah portion of Vayera (Gen 18:1 – 22:24) we have a confirmation of someone specific being an enemy of Yeshua. This treasure won’t set well with most people but I need to show you nevertheless. Like I sometimes say – No ear-tickling here! 😇 There is a stand-alone Alef Tav in GenContinue reading “ET (את) Gates of Their Enemies”

Test the spirits

John advises us to test the spirits in 1 John 4:1 – Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. – 1 John 4:1 But I’ve got to warn you; once you start testing spirits your friends listContinue reading “Test the spirits”

Yeshua, “like the sun”

Hebrew names have meanings. For instance, Yeshua’s name means “Salvation of Yah”, so when the angel told Mary to name her child Yeshua, because He would save His people from their sins, it made perfect sense, because that’s what “Yeshua” means! “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name YeshuaContinue reading “Yeshua, “like the sun””

Who are the Nicolaitans?

Would you agree that Yeshua wrote Revelation to our last generation? If not, don’t bother reading any further. If you do, please proceed. Yeshua mentions the Nicolaitans twice when addressing the seven churches and since He is speaking to our generation we should understand what He is saying, right? Here are the two verses: RevContinue reading “Who are the Nicolaitans?”

Exceed the Righteousness of the Pharisees? 🤔

I want to go to the Kingdom, but exceed? How can that be? The Pharisees were the most righteous people alive in Yeshua’s day! To understand what Yeshua means, it is imperative to be familiar with what Pharisees believe. As some of you know, I grew up in the church of Christ in Nashville, Tennessee,Continue reading “Exceed the Righteousness of the Pharisees? 🤔”

Wait Quietly

Most people would agree that the whole world is in a form of tribulation right now and most who believe Yeshua is the Messiah look forward to the day that He returns and defeats His enemies. Lamentations has a verse that speaks directly to us believers in Yeshua. Turn to 3:26. It reads: We shouldContinue reading “Wait Quietly”
