  • Great Journey

    “Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I suffered shipwreck. A night and a day I spent in the open sea. In my many journeys I have been in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the desert, dangers in the sea, […]

  • Dealing With Conflict

    “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” (Proverbs 15:1) God loves peace and promises to bring about perfect peace at the end. Yeshua demonstrated this attribute of God by declaring, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God” (Matthew 5:9). Why then do we find so many conflicts documented in the […]

  • Why We Pray

    “Adonai, in the morning You hear my voice. In the morning I order my prayer before You and watch expectantly” (Psalm 5:4). Why do we pray? Yes, this question assumes that you pray and that you know other people who pray! Search the internet and you may find many definitions of prayer. No matter how others define […]

  • The Intercessor

    “In the same way, the Ruach helps in our weakness. For we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Ruach Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. And He who searches the hearts knows the mind of the Ruach, because He intercedes for the kedoshim according to the will of God” (Romans 8:26-27). What does […]

  • El Roi

    “So she called Adonai who was speaking to her, “You are the God who sees me.” For she said, “Would I have gone here indeed looking for Him who looks after me?” (Genesis 16:13 Have you been in a place where you wonder, “God, where are you?”. Are you in that place right now and are […]

  • Scapegoat and Messiah

    Have you ever been scapegoated?  A scapegoat is a person who is blamed for the wrongdoings, mistakes, and faults of others. Even if it has some truth to the accusations, a scapegoat is often wrongly accused and carries all the guilt of the entire group. Leviticus chapter 16 introduces us to the scapegoat and the purpose […]

  • No Other Name

    This Yeshua is ‘the stone—rejected by you, the builders—that has become the chief cornerstone.’ There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved!” (Acts 4:11-12) About two thousand years ago, God came to His own so that He might deliver us from the tyranny of sin and […]

  • The Love of God

    “We have come to know love by this—Yeshua laid down His life for us, and we also ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. But if someone has material possessions and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Children, […]

  • God’s Favor

    “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us. Establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands” (Psalm 90:17). What does it mean to you to have God’s favor? The Psalmist prayed that God’s favor would be upon them and immediately followed up with a prayer […]

  • Race For Identity

    The world appears to be suffering from identity crisis and this – identity crisis – is having a dramatic effect on each of us. We are created to be social beings, created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27). For this reason we have formed social clubs, sports leagues, communities, and political systems that we […]
