Messianic 101

I received an email the other day from someone who wanted to help me sell my books. They “invited” me to do an interview that would be run on YouTube, as well as multiple ads in different media outlets. It wasn’t much of an invitation because they wanted me to
When I was a Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, I had a Top-Secret Clearance. And when you go to classes regarding clearance levels, you learn there are three essential factors in order to see any classified documents: You must have the proper clearance level. You must have access
Let’s talk about that age-old, never-to-be-settled argument about God and Yeshua being one and the same entity. Even if it starts as a discussion, this always becomes an argument and all it does is to cause consternation and division between Believers. And when that happens, it doesn’t serve God, but
If you ask almost any Jewish person what Jesus changed, they will tell you he changed the laws of Moses. The reason they will say that is because Jews are taught Jesus was Jewish but rebelled against Judaism and created Christianity. If you prefer to watch a video, click on
Gee, I just realized I haven’t posted anything since 2022! Maybe that’s because today is January 3, 2023? The letter Shaul (Paul) wrote to the Galatian Believers has brought forth the idea of “Legalism”, which is generally understood by almost every Christian I have met as being “under the law”,
How many times have you heard that a Believer should follow the commands of Yeshua (Jesus)? My question is this: when did he ever command anyone to do anything? If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. The fact is that Yeshua NEVER commanded
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard Christians tell me that the God of the Jewish Bible is cruel, punitive, and unforgiving, whereas Jesus is all about love and forgiveness. Of course, you won’t hear that from Jews because, well, Jews don’t read or even recognize the
I have seen many postings, especially at this time of the year, about how the Christmas tree is a pagan symbol and should not be erected. I have read how they misuse Isaiah 44:12-28 and also Jeremiah 10:3-4 to make the tree appear paganistic. If you prefer to watch a
Is Yeshua the Messiah? Is Jesus the Messiah? Is either one of them God? Or are we still looking for the Messiah, the one God promised to send throughout the Tanakh? If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. The answer will change, depending
There have been many times I have heard people tell me that because of Yeshua, the covenants God made with Israel do not apply to those who believe in Yeshua and follow him. Some even go as far as to say that Yeshua did away with the “law”. If you
What am I talking about when I say the “old” and the “new”? I am talking about the Old Covenant, that “Jewish” Bible, and the New Covenant, the “Christian” Bible. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. For those of you who know
Of course, I am talking about the name of the Lord, the one and only, the creator of the universe, the Almighty, our shield and savior, our father in heaven…you know, that guy. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. I have talked
“Wait a minute, Steve! Don’t you mean ‘Have a blessed day’?” No, I don’t. When I say to someone “have a blessed day”, that really doesn’t mean anything, since it is God who gives blessings, not me. I may wish them to have a blessed day, but I have no
Ya know what? No matter how many times I hear people say that the Mosaic Covenant was done away with by Yeshua’s sacrifice and is no longer valid for Christians, I still can’t understand how people who say they read the Bible can believe that hooey. If you prefer to
That’s a good question- why should we celebrate Yom Kippur when we have already been saved by the blood of Yeshua the Messiah? Well, the obvious answer is…because God said we should. Duh! If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. Christianity has taught
It may seem silly, my saying that I am not religious, when I read the Bible every day, pray constantly, and especially since I have this ministry. But, yet, I tell you, here and now and with conviction, that I am not religious. So, nu, if I’m not religious, then
With the High Holy Days upon us, I thought I would go over some of the Jewish traditions regarding Rosh Hashanah. Remember, even though Yeshua chided the Pharisees about man-made traditions, he wasn’t against all traditions- only those specific ones that were given precedence over what God said we should
We’ve been over this, again and again, so let’s go over it one more time. The Tetragrammaton, the four-letter word that God told Moses, is God’s Holy Name, and how it is used in speech and prayer should honor God. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this
In the Gospel of John, specifically John 14:13, Yeshua tells his disciples that whatever they ask for, when they ask it in his name, he will do. He said this is the way he will glorify his Father. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch
We all know the story in Genesis 22, which we call the Akedah (binding), where Abraham obeys God’s demand that he sacrifice Isaac on Mount Moriah. We also all know that this is all about testing Abraham’s faith. Or, is it? If you prefer to watch a video, click on
