For We All Make Many Stumbles

It can be an exhilarating experience to see something new in the Scriptures—to be reading through or studying a familiar passage, and then suddenly have the words leap off the page and grab our attention, as if for the first time. It is a stirring reminder that the Word of God is alive—that the Scriptures are a thoroughly spiritual document…. But sometimes, some of us will make a dire mistake.

Not by Faith Only

When we say that we have faith in the Mes­siah Yeshua, what we are actually declaring—though we may not realize it—is that we are unable to resist emulating the One in whom we believe… that our beliefs are self-compelled to externalize and manifest themselves through action. We betray that faith, then, when we reduce it to simple thoughts and feelings…

Blood is Thicker than Family

There has never been more precious covenant blood exchanged than that of the Lamb of God—our Master, the Messiah Yeshua. As we partake of the Passover memorial, let us remember what the shed blood of Yeshua bought for us, and bought us for.

The Torah of Liberty—So Speak, and So Do

Exploring the Book of Ya’aqov, Pt. 10 For whoever keeps the whole תּוֹרָה, Torah, and stumbles in one point, has become guilty of breaking it all. For He who is saying, “YOU MUST NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” also said, “YOU MUST NOT MURDER.” And so, if you do not commit adultery, yet you commit murder, you […]

Bringing the King’s Torah to Its Goal

Exploring the Book of Ya’aqov, Pt. 9 My brothers, do not hold the faith of the glory of our Master יֵשׁוּע, Yeshua the Messiah in favoritism. For if there comes into your synagogue a man with a gold ring, dressed in bright clothing, and there also comes in a poor man in shabby clothing, and […]

Devotion Pure and Undefiled

Exploring the Book of Ya’aqov, Pt. 8 If anyone thinks himself to be devout—not bridling his tongue, but rather deceiving his heart—the devotion of this one is vain. Devotion pure and undefiled with the God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their oppression, and to keep himself unspotted from the […]

In Everything, With Thanksgiving

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything—by prayer and by asking for help, with thanksgiving—let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which is surpassing all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Messiah יֵשׁוּעַ, Yeshua. (Philippians 4:6-7, mjlt) In today’s uneasy and tumultuous world, there are plenty […]

For the Love of the Word of God

I love the Scriptures. I love God’s Word. Every chapter, paragraph, sentence, phrase, word and letter of the Book is life to me. If I could, I would spend each waking moment completely immersed in it. Truly, the Scriptures are perfection. So, because I love the Word and hold it in such high esteem, I […]

Let Us Come Near, Then—Unhindered

A Special Yom Kipur Message Having, then, a great כֹּהֵן גּ‬ָדוֹל‬, Kohen Gadol passed through the heavens—יֵשׁוּעַ, Yeshua, the Son of God—let us hold fast to the profession of faith. For we have a כֹּהֵן גּ‬ָדוֹל‬, Kohen Gadol not unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one tempted in all things likewise as we are, […]
