Our Opportunities? Two.

July 11, 2019

Preaching the Good News!

This form of telling the lost world that they are in need of Salvation is not as popular as it once was? Believers are scared of the world, they lack trust and faith in Elohim, because they have encompassed the securities of Ha ‘Olam?

But this cannot be right and we daily face a cost for our faith, because it is hard to be a believer in Yeshua! We are saved is we continue to walk with Him and we also must tell others of the wonderful things that He has done for us, cost or not?

We are not of Ha ‘Olam, but have to continuing living in it and hope that by our witness others to will come to faith in Yeshua Ha ‘Adonai!

Matthew/Levi 10:7,   11:1,   Luke 11:32,   Acts 16:6,   Romans 2:16,   1 Corinthians 9:16,    2 Timothy 2:9.

Our Opportunities? One.

July 11, 2019

Sharing our faith in Yeshua!

Every moment should be an opportunity for us who believe in Yeshua to share Him with the far and near?

He has done great things for us, freed us from empty religious observance, from the curses of Ha ‘Torah by becoming that for us on the tree of redemption!

We have nothing to share, how can this be, unless of course we were never really born again?

Yochanan 3:3,   14-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   1 Corinthians 10:16,   Galatians 6:10,  Hebrews 13:16. 

PESACH-EASTER. ONE.

Day Two!

We tend to runover the story of Easter very quickly without taking a deeper look at the seven key events of the period from the afternoon on the first day Friday of atonement to the morning of the third day of the resurrection?

In Matthew/Levi 27:44-66 we have seven to nine distinct events from the mockers on crosses beside Him, His death, the conversion of the Roman soldier, the tearing of the Temple veil,  earthquake, the resurrection of the dead believers in Yerushalayim,  His burial, Joseph of Arimathea, the accusers implying that He was a deceiver and Pilate putting a guard in the garden!

Elohim moved and so did Yeshua and despite these events which were scary the religious men still believed that He was a deceiver and wanted their will done! This is the continued human condition of unbelief that we must face everyday with Ha ‘Olim! But we know and have the truth and we must continue to stand for it because faith is far greater than any achievement of man and his mocking of Elohim!

Matthew/Levi 27:38,  44,   45-50,   51-53,   54,   55-56,   57-61,   62-66,   28:13.

CHRISTMAS! Two.

December 27, 2018

Bearing the Name?

The virgin conception and birth of Yeshua is one of the key factors about Chanukka-Christmas, that the promised Messiah and the Saviour of Ha ‘Olam has come Elohim into human flesh the gift given for our redemption!

But being a believer in Yeshua comes with a cost, that of being ostracized from what ever group you belong too? Be targeted for being different, doing right, seeking to be honest or showing integrity? Because Ha ‘Olam is the opposite of everything that is honourable and it is a challenge for us to bear His name!

Jeremiah 29:11, 13,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 1:35,  37,   Yochanan 3:3,  14-17,   Colossians 2:2-15,  Hebrews 11:5.

Chanukkah! Two.

The fulfillment Of!

Malachi id the last Prophet of the Tanakh and much of what he has to say is about the decline in the standards required by Elohim in relation to Temple sacrifices! But we are then left with a four hundred year gap until the birth of Messiah to a young virgin in Roman occupied Israel!

But those four hundred years in Jewish history are not left empty, we have the rise of the Maccabees and the Hasmoneans revolting first against the Greeks and then the Romans?

But then the last Temple is finally restored and dedicated by the Festival of lights, looking back for Messianic believers we now understand this was a prophetic interlude to Yeshua words, I Am the light of Ha ‘Olam!

But there is more when Yochanan tells us that, ‘For Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that He gave us His one and only Son Yeshua!

Malachi 4:2,  Matthew/Levi 4:16,   Luke 2:32,   Yochanan 3:15-16,    8:12,    9:5,    Acts 26:18,   Ephesians 5:14.

Making the right Choice?

Redemption!

The Complete Tanakh says, ‘That we are all sinners!

That is the fact of humanity, we are born into inherited sin and this  marks out as failures before Elohim for the rest of our lives! This condition is another terminal illness, but humanity has as yet not been able to find a cure for it!

We can be self-achieving, learn to be confident and self-improve or otherwise be foolish or mad in evil and wickedness? But what ever road we should choose in the ideal of humanism it will not solve our condition!

Elohim has given to us His one and only Son Yeshau and by repenting and confessing our failures to Him, he will forgives and set us free by His redemptive work on the tree of cursing and His rising from the grave!

Yesha’ Yahu 1:18,   Zechariah 13:1,   Yochanan 3:3,   4-7,   15-18,    Acts 14:22,    Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   1 Corinthians 6:11,   Hebrews 9:14,   13:12,   Alef Yochanan 1:7, Revelation 7:14.

 

Abandonment! Two.

September 20, 2018

Rejection of the Truth?

Ritualism and tradition are very good ways to pretend to be keeping rules, while breaking every sing one of them! Many religions today worship idols and many who don’t believe in any Spiritual powers, still worship their achievements and things?

Humanity by our nature cannot escape belief in something, this has been proved time and again! We see it in Communism with man worship, in China with money and things, in the west with wealth and property?

The temporal will all fade away and what we claim to have abandoned will catch up with us on the Judgement Day, when the time for repenting and confessing our failures will have runout!

Today, now we can say sorry to Elohim, even if we have been a long time away! But you have been warned that these are serious matters that now need to be considered and decided upon?

Numbers 14:28,   Deuteronomy 4:29,  32:29,  Yov 8:5,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 19:10,   Acts 13:46,   Romans 6:11,  11:22,   Hebrews 10:24,   Ya’akov/James 5:11,   Revelation 9:6.

Atonement?

Sins to be dealt With!

How is this now to be sorted out since their has been no Temple in Jerusalem for the last one-thousand and nine hundred years?

It is ironic that some legal way has been made in Judaism to justify ways around this but, the truth is that with the advent of Yeshua there is no need of either sacrifices of animals or a building!

Since we can call on Him confess and repent of our failures and Elohim will have mercy on us, but repentance is not something that excuses us to return back to sin again and again but rather that we will be changed by Ruach Ha’Kodesh into a new people

Jeremiah 31:34,   1 Corinthians 11:25,   Ephesians 2:13,   Hebrews 9:28.

The Temple! Two.

July 20, 2018

Focus on being Born-Again?

Today there is no Temple in Yerushalayim, but right-wing and Orthodox Y’hudim are planning to build a new one before the coming of their false Moshia!

But for all believers the Apostle Paul (Shual) tells us that we are the Temple of Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh and He is precious to us as a guide and helper or comforter! Known in the Greek of the New Testament as Paraclete, the word encompasses many meanings along the lines that we have already covered!

One day when we all make it home to the New Heavenly Yerushalayim, there will no longer be a need for any kind of Temple, since the light of Yeshua will illuminate us and it!

Exodus 25:9-26:30,  1 Kings 6:3-33,   Psalm 61:4,   Acts 7:44,   1 Corinthians 3:16-17,  Hebrews 9:1-11,  13:10,   Revelation 21:3,  22.

The Temple! One.

The focus of Y’srael.

In times past the Temple was the focus of the people to bring their sacrifices for their failures to be offered by the priestly order, it was the central place of worship for Ha Y’hudim and the dwelling of Elohim on Earth!

But because of the sin, ignorance and arrogance of the people and the way that the Prophets were mistreated as they tried to warn the Kings that they were going against the will of Elohim to submit, two Temples were destroyed and the nations scattered to the four winds of the Earth via Babylon!

Yeshua told the people two-thousand years ago that their failure to trust in Elohim and to believe in Him was their ruin, because they were trusting in stones and religious duties over that of faith!

Luke 21:6,   1 Kings 9:7-9,   Yesha ‘Yahu 64:10-11,   Jeremiah 26:18,   Lamentations 2:6-8,   Zechariah 14:2,   Matthew/Levi 24:2,   Mark 13:2.
