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! 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.

A Mothers Love?

March 8, 2019

Mari mother of Yeshua!

We all have mothers no human as yet cannot be born without a mother and a father!

We all should love and respect our parents it is a command of Elohim to do so, but not all relationships are perfect? Many are flawed by sin and the consequences of relationships outside of marriage, scandal and psychological rejection!

Mari had much worry through her life with Yeshua, many times she interfered not fully understanding what was happening! She was a caring woman, wanting the best for her son that is a most natural thing!

Many Y’hudim will mark Mothering Sunday with flowers and gifts, but to show our real appreciation it to continue and serve our mothers in their daily needs?

Matthew/Levi 1:16-20,   2:11,   13:55,   Mark 10:30,   Luke 2:41-43,   Acts 1:14,   Ephesians 6:1,   1 Timothy 5:2,   Hebrews 11:23.

Love!

February 21, 2019

We cannot do without It?

If the world had more love, sympathy and understanding, would it be a better place? Sadly it might be improved, but sin that is an inherited stain on humanity would spoil it!

But we who claim to have faith, have to show what we say by putting into practise sympathy, understanding and love daily in our work, home, retirement, duty, and at school?

Without love there would be no feeling, passion, artistic expression in music, painting, writing, photography, design, invention, love for others, romance, sex, the fulfillment of life?

But with knowing Elohim and having that fulness of inner peace, power and love in Yeshua we have entered into the New Life today and for Eternity!

Psalm 98:1,   Yesha ‘Yahu 48:6,    65:17,   2 Corinthians 5;17,   Revelation 21:5.

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.

CHRISTMAS. One.

December 13, 2018

The events Surrounding?

The story of Christmas is made up of several key events that surround the emphasis of the miraculous entry of Yeshua into human flesh!

Each of these events fulfill the scriptures to prove that all this was well known of by the Prophets, despite the unbelief of the nation and their choices of bad Kings.

By the time that these events took place about two thousand years ago Israel was once more in the Temple order decline, so the last prophet Malachi informs us! Greek occupation, followed by the Roman conquest, lead to various backlash revolts such as the Maccabi success, which gave some independence to Ha ‘Yehudim again?

But despite all this decline there were still some believers I various places, we see this opening with the birth of Yochannan the Baptizer, whose parents were cousins to Mari and Yoseph!

Matthew/Levi  2:4-6,    Luke 1:5-25,   39-45,   57-66,   Hebrews 12:2,    Revelation 22:16.

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.

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.
