PESACH-EASTER! Two.

April 25, 2019

Spices for Burial.

We tend once more to over look these passages, because they perhaps no longer have any meaning to the Ekklesia?

But they are important to us and are still worth examining and we also see that in this case these were prepared by the woman of the ministry of Yeshua, Mary the Prostitute, Mary His Earthly mother two woman who had a deep love for Him!

The legal requirement of these spices had their roots in the customs of the Egyptians and were incorporated by the Y’hudim for their own requirement, the main being that of keeping flies away from the decomposing body.

Mark 15:47-16:1,    Luke 23:55-56,    Exodus 30:25-37,    2 Chronicles 16:14.

Forgiving each Other!

February 7, 2019

Love, Marriage and Divorce?

Divorce was never in the vocabulary of Elohim, it was something forced upon Moshe by the people in the Sinai!

Next week millions will be spent of St. Valentines day in the annual day of slushy romance, many will propose and get married enjoying the aspect of the experience!

But about this time next year or the year after depending on the marriage date, they will be divorcing because I did not sign up to this?

We are all Sinners so the Complete Tanakh tells us and because of our fallen nature we are all selfish! This ugly monster is in each of us and it will come out from time to time in differing degrees! But the answer to the problem is to learn to forgive and press on, if we really love each other?

Since Elohim loved us, and gave us His one and only son, since He forgives us our failures, then we too must learn to forgive others!

Psalm 130:4,    Jeremiah 50:20,   Matthew/Levi 6:12-15,   18:21,   Yochanan 3:14-16,   20:23,   Ephesians 4:32,    Colossians 3:16.

Another Year 2019!

But the same old Story?

We have to press on with our faith in Yeshua, but there are many out there who seek to undermine our religion and culture by re-writing history and denying Ha ‘Shoah!

They have denied the facts of history, as they deny the facts about Yeshua and His love for Y’srael! The fact that Elohim chose our people to possess the land that has been given back once more, for the day of His return!

We must share our faith, but also the truth about Nazi-Germany and its eugenics ideas in the deliberate destruction of the Jewish race?

Exodus 11:17,  14:25,  Y’hoshua 7:20,  Nehemiah 5:1,  Dani’EL  3:8,  Luke 2:34,  Romans 11:2. 

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.

Many Nations and Israel!

If one talks to older folks, you hear much about the past and the wars with their respective horrors, but today you can speak to refugees from Afghanistan and the Middle-East and hear much the same!

But when you speak with Israelis you learn quickly that they have to live with it, its like Beirut in the seventies or N-Ireland during the troubles?

People were at home and they had no where special they could go, maybe for a while a short move for a rest, but then you had to come home?

People today live in the inner cities around the world and now are getting a taste of some serious out of control crime, it not quite the same but it is bad when you loose a loved one, a child to stabbings!

Genesis 14:2,   31:26,   Joshua 11:20,   Psalm 120:7,   Luke 14:31,   2 Corinthians 10:3,  Alef Kefa 2:11,   Revelation 2:16.

Making the right Choice?

October 25, 2018

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.

 

Suffering for doing?

October 11, 2018

Good!

It is hard to be a believer in Yeshua, when we have been told from childhood that he was an imposter! The lie has stuck in our mindset that we dare not challenge it and so it is with all around us who remain in that same darkness that we were delivered from!

Our suffering is not just for believing, but also for doing good? This means doing good all the time, not just that one daily action!

When we tell the truth, we will be attacked for spoiling things? Those things could lead to some ones death, suffering, un-comfort or some other serious problems?

2 Timothy 3:12-13,  Job 27:6,  Mark 10:30,  Acts 14:22,  Alef Kefa 3:14,  Revelation 7:14.

The love of Elohim!

‘Not an excuse for Sin?

Today it is very hard to find believers who follow the teachings of the Complete Tanakh/Holy Bible, who are not adding things on that have nothing to do with Elohim!

Much of this comes from the lack of the ability to read the Tanakh/Bible and many believe that somehow Yeshua has done away with Ha ‘Torah/The Law, when in the Gospels we are told that He did not!

What is prevalent is the excuse to deliberately sin in the hope that God has forgiven and excused our future situation, but alas that is not how it works! The false ideas of ‘Once saved always saved, excuses sin and gives the impression that we can just say sorry sometimes and Elohim will let us off with it?

Accountability and responsibility are two of the most important actions of faith, how we appear to Ha ‘Olam will mark us out as wither we live by what we claim to be or show us to be hypocrites and thus loose our witness?

Exodus 34:6,   Deuteronomy 7:12,   Yochanan 3:3,   3:14-18,   2 Corinthians 9:13, Ephesians 2:4,   Alef  Yochanan 3:17,   Jude 1:21.

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?

September 13, 2018

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.
