09/15/23 – A Closer Look at the “Laws” in Deuteronomy. Did Y’shua contradict or “add to” the laws or commandments in the book of Deuteronomy when He said “Moses allowed divorce because of the hardness of your hearts BUT I SAY…” and other such things? Is everything in the book of Deuteronomy actually a ‘command by YHWH’? Or is there possibly something else going on in chapters 20-25? Are there really 613 commandments OR are MANY OF THEM possibly ‘Case Law’… BASED UPON YHWH’s actual Commandments/Laws? Case Law decided in the authority of YHWH by Moses in his Yah given role as “Chief Justice” of the Supreme Court in the wilderness? And then Y’shua is Chief Justice of a higher court… THE HIGHEST court? Y’shua’s rulings would then be a “higher court ruling” while HE DID STILL UPHOLD Moses’ case law in the wilderness but brought clarification to its application. Moses Himself in Deuteronomy told us YHWH would raise up a prophet LIKE unto Moses himself and that we should listen to all He says because He would only speak the Words of YHWH in the Name of YHWH? THEN ALSO we see in the New Testament writings that as the Body of Messiah we are also given authority under Y’shua to judge according to the Commandments of YHWH. Like all judges we are to take all prior Case Law into account when judging putting the most weight on what the highest judging authority (Y’shua) has said, especially when judging ourselves. Please listen all the way to the end of this message where we tie this all into the New or Renewed Covenant which is which is also founded upon the 10 Commandments or Words of the covenant at Horeb or Mt. Sinai AND IS FIRST OUTLINED IN DEUTERONOMY!
08/20/23 a reminder from 09/02/22 – Joel’s Fast, Daniel’s Prayer & Jeremiah’s Warning. The sixth month we are now in is also known as the month of Elul. The time period of 40 days leading up to Yom Kippur which includes the entire month of Elul is known as the “40 Days of Repentance”. Should we consider a fast and serious time of repentance during this 40 days leading up to Yom Kippur? A look at Joel’s end time call to fasting and repentance, Daniel’s prayer of repentance and Jeremiah’s warning in part 2.
08/17/23 reminder from 08/26/22 – Is this Tradition Supported by Scripture? A look at the sixth biblical or Hebrew month in scripture. The sixth month is also known as the month of Elul. We are now entering this sixth month starting the evening of August 27th. The time period of 40 days leading up to Yom Kippur which includes the entire month of Elul is known as the “40 Days of Repentance” but is this supported by scripture or just a tradition. Should we consider a fast and serious time of repentance during this 40 days leading up to Yom Kippur? If yes, then what kind of fast? What should be included in our repentance? We’ll see just what YHWH says in His Word!
Who is the Daughter of Babel? Originally posted February 24, 2020 but even more relevant now than 3 1/2 years ago. Current events and especially all those events that have taken place over the past 3 1/2 years since this was first posted have only served to reinforce our conclusions found in this video. – (TO DOWNLOAD OR LISTEN TO PODCASTS scroll to audio links below the video) Is Jeremiah 50 & 51 all about ancient Babylon and was this prophecy of her destruction already fulfilled since Babylon is just a bunch of half rebuilt ruins? Will the ancient city of Babylon be rebuilt to fulfill the end time Daughter of Babylon prophecies? Or perhaps is end time Mystery Babylon the Great already in existence just waiting for Jeremiah’s prophesied invasion from the North by a multitude of great nations?
06/30/23 – AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH… Is there a correlation between the 8 people on Noah’s Ark and the 7 Churches of Revelation? What can we glean from the Revelation messages to the 7 Churches when viewed in light of Noah’s flood and the 8 people on the Ark? You might be surprised at what the parallels and implications may be. Prayerfully consider this message and these warnings from the book of Revelation to the 7 assemblies, both then and now!
04/02/23 – 7th Day of Unleavened Bread in the book of Esther? Should we do an Esther fast 3 days prior to the “7th Day” of the feast of Unleavened Bread this year (which would begin on the Feast of First Fruits this year) and then present our petition for the safety of our people before our King on the 7th Day of His Feast… Unleavened Bread?
03/28/23 – Updated Revelation Time Chart too! Let’s get ready for Passover and review just some of these scriptures about this blessed feast! I’m excited for this Passover, how about you. Between the first Passover next week and the 2nd Passover a month later we should keep our eyes open for some interesting events to take place. Have your sandals on, your belts cinched and your staffs in your hands you never know what could happen in any given Passover season but this one certainly seems ripe for some kind of scriptural events to take place! Whether you’ve not celebrated Passover in a biblical sense before or your an old hand we pray this message helps prepare your heart.
03/21/23 – Philadelphia & Smyrna. This week we take a more in depth look at the message to the church or assembly of Philadelphia in Revelation 3 regarding the Greek word Philadelphia which is translated elsewhere in the New Testament as brotherly love. Does the study of the church of Philadelphia present a picture of what was lacking in the church of Ephesus? When we take a look at all the passages in the New Testament where the Greek word Philadelphia appears can we get a clearer picture of the ultimate goal of believers in Y’shua Messiah as well as the steps that should be taken on our journey from faith in our first love to agape love. What does it take to be counted worthy to be kept from or escape from (as part of the church or assembly of Philadelphia) the time of great testing that may be about to come upon the whole earth? Then how does the church of Smyrna compare to the Church of Philadelphia. The Revelation messages to the churches were received by John for 7 churches or assemblies existing in the first century CE but are also prophetic messages or warnings for the assemblies of believers in the end of days just before the return of Y’shua Messiah. Warnings that need to be heeded as we enter the judgements of Revelation leading to His Millennial Kingdom.
03/12/23 – Ephesus & Philadelphia. This week we take a more in depth look at the message to the church or assembly of Ephesus in Revelation 2 regarding falling away from our first love and being warned to repent and return to the first works. The Revelation messages to the churches were received by John for 7 churches or assemblies existing in the first century CE but are also prophetic messages or warnings for the assemblies of believers in the end of days just before the return of Y’shua Messiah. Warnings that need to be heeded as we enter the judgements of Revelation leading to His Millennial Kingdom.
03/05/23 – Olive Tree Grove Splits in Two Near Biblical Antioch! Voices, Reports, Wars & Rumors of Wars, Lightnings, Thunders and an Earthquake! The Antakya, Turkey earthquakes the night of Feb 6th, or Tu B’Shvat on biblical calendar, split a huge olive grove in 2 with a canyon about 130 ft or 13 stories deep and a football field’s length wide! It’s absolutely amazing to see but first do you know the history of Antakya? It was founded about 300bc and is… drum roll, the new testament city of Antioch where the disciples were first called “Christians” or Messianics! Then we start at the beginning of Revelation and begin a fresh look at the messages John received for the 7 churches.
02/06/23 – 1 Resurrected Bride & 1 Kingdom of Israel. Thoughts on scripture, salvation, and who we are in Y’shua Messiah. Why would anyone want to convert to be part of the dead bride. Torah can not save without what Y’shua did on the cross or tree! Torah only instructs and then condemns. It is VERY VALUABLE as a teacher of how to live in our Abba’s Kingdom or House but even if you think you can keep Torah perfectly, it will not save you without Y’shua’s death on the cross and resurrection, period. Those that deny Y’shua is YHWH come in the Flesh are deceived by the spirit of Anti-Messiah. His invitation to eternal life is open to ‘whosoever’.
01/14/23 – Yom Kippur 22 to Yom Kippur 23? If this year is the Jubilee year, we look at the freeing implications of the “acceptable year of YHWH” that Y’shua spoke of in Luke 4 when He was quoting Isaiah 61. We will connect the dots in scripture regarding the year of Jubilee, the 50th year! The year to proclaim liberty! You might be surprised how this Greek word for liberty is translated elsewhere in the New Testament.
01/07/23 – Joseph Nations Delivered Israel’s Body Back to the Land… A surprising look at the last two Torah Portions, Vayigash & Vayechi. Are the Ezekiel prophesied dry bones of Israel with sinew and flesh on them actually the embalmed body of Israel which the Joseph nations delivered back to the land of Israel in 1949? Did the ancient nation of Israel die with Y’shua and become embalmed 2000 years ago? Israel the man… 7 Years of Plenty followed by 7 Years of Famine followed by the death and 40 day embalming of Joseph’s father Israel, followed by 70 days of mourning in all Egypt and then 7 more days of mourning by Joseph after he delivers Israels embalmed body back to Canaan. Has the nation of Israel been following after the pattern of Israel the man for the last 2000 years since the ancient nation of Israel died with Y’shua and went through a 40 year embalming process? Are we possibly entering the last 7 years of Joseph’s mourning for his father after delivering him back to the land? We will follow the scriptural patterns in today’s program and see where they lead us.
12/23/22 – The Enemy’s Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a Hebrew word meaning dedication. Today we will first discuss “coming out” or UN-Assimilating and what we’ve all gone through to get where we are today and how we need to help each other stay strong and not RE-Assimilate. We also look at “Merry Christmas” and some response ideas that may better glorify our Savior and King than “Happy Hanukkah”. Most people in the grocery checkout line are clueless as to what Hanukkah is other than a Jewish holiday and the Jewish religion rejects the only begotten Son, YHWH’s Word having come in the Flesh. Do we really want to appear to reject the birth of our Savior when there isn’t even time to explain to this person what Hanukkah is all about or that December 25 isn’t Jesus birthday and that Jesus isn’t our Savior’s Name anyway? Can we really explain all that in 5 minutes or will we simply leave them believing we too (along with most of the world) have rejected our Savior? Then after a beautiful song by Marty Goetz will read a few scriptures on Hanukkah or dedication including a fresh look at Shadrach, Meshach & Abed-Nego.
12/14/22 – Crossing Over the Jordan… Then and Now! Breaking News in Relation to Scripture & Possible End of This Age Scenarios! King Abdullah of Jordan just announced a 300 million dollar improvement project for the site of Y’shua’s Baptism on the East side of the Jordan River! In addition to this site being where Y’shua was Baptized it is also very likely the exact site where Joshua led the Israelites across the Jordan into the Promised Land as well as the exact site where Elisha followed Elijah out of the Land before he was taken up into the clouds after which Elisha crossed back into the Land at this same location! What significance may this news and this site have for us today and in the very near future? We take a look at prophetic pictures in scripture that may answer this question and more in today’s program.
11/19/22 – In this week’s message we are going to talk about “running” to do the will of our Creator, our Abba. The last few weeks we’ve been talking about LISTENING to the still small voice of His Ruach or Spirit. This week we are going to explore RUNNING. Do we drop everything and RUN like Abraham did to meet with YHWH or to do His will once we hear from Him, as soon as we hear from Him? We will look at several examples in scripture of ‘running’ toward YHWH or running to do His will as opposed to procrastinating when we hear His voice. How might an attitude of running or procrastinating effect our physical and eternal salvations. Is it possible that the difference between the Revelation Church of Philadelphia as opposed to the church of Smyrna may have something to do with how quickly they respond to the leading of His Ruach, how quickly we respond to the calling of Y’shua upon our lives? Hopefully this message will inspire us all to LISTEN even more intently and then to RUN when He calls us.
11/12/22 – BLESSING OUR COMMUNITIES WITH TRUTH EVEN AS WE ‘COME OUT OF HER’. Building upon last week’s program, some believe it is their duty to vote and that is fine as long as you have come to that conclusion through study and much prayer with our Abba. For those who have instead decided to withdraw their consent by coming out and not participating, is there anything we CAN do to still be salt, light and a blessing to our communities without voting? Absolutely, but many of these actions take much faith, bravery and discernment of when and how to best be influential as well as thick skin. In the end, when we’ve listened to Him and done all we could with the talents He’s given us, hopefully we will hear our Abba say, “well done My good a faithful servant”.
11/05/22 – What Does it all Mean? Should We Vote? Continuing our message from last week regarding a personal walk with Him and listening to that still small voice while also looking at the upcoming US elections in light of the blood moon that will occur early that morning. What could be the biblical significance of November 8, 2022 which is the 15th day of the eighth biblical month? What might we watch for in the next several months? And are we making a covenant with liars when we vote? Could we be held accountable for what those that ‘win’ these elections do in ‘our’ name as ‘our’ representatives if we participate in elections whether we voted for the winners or not? “LISTEN” and then you prayerfully decide.
10/28/22 – Why do so many well-studied believers disagree on so many topics? Aren’t we all reading the same scriptures? Today we are going to take a look at a strict orthodox black and white interpretation of the Torah in contrast to what Paul and the NT might call liberty and freedom in Y’shua Messiah. Did Paul really mean we are free to disobey or throw out the Torah or Law of YHWH? Conversely are we to judge other believers’ understandings and different methods of observance of the Torah according to our understanding and how we are called to walk it out? If we diligently study scripture and are totally convinced and believe we understand and are walking out Torah according to His rules and Spiritual understanding of scripture and His leading, should everyone else’s walk match what we are doing because He has given us this understanding of His Truth? Or is this where Paul’s law of liberty comes in?
