We’re Either Trusting or We’re Fearful

I am not going to quote verses from the Bible about how important it is for us to trust God. That would take up more time to go through than anyone reading this or watching the video would want to spend. But what I will do is remind everyone of the last line of Kohelet…

Parashot Tazria-Mezora 2020 (Leviticus 12-13/ 14-15)

Because this is a leap year, the Jewish calendar adds an additional month, Adar Rishon, so that it remains in proper sync with the Gregorian calendar.  As such, there are times when, in order for the annual cycle of the Torah readings to end on Shemini Atzeret (the 8th day of Sukkot), we will have…

Changed My Mind

I just spent about an hour writing a message about fear and how it can be used to control us. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. When I couldn’t think of how to conclude the message I realized that I couldn’t stop writing because all I was…

What Does “Believe in Jesus” Really mean?

No video today, but please click on the SUBSCRIBE button in the right-hand margin to receive notification when I post again. As a Jewish man who accepts Yeshua (Jesus) as my Messiah, I have been told by nearly every other Jewish person I know who doesn’t accept him that if I “believe in Jesus” I am…

fear abounds where faith is not found

Has a nice, catchy “ring” to it, doesn’t it? Fear abounds, where faith is not found…..I would expect to see that on a marquee outside a synagogue or a church. But what is the “fear” I am talking about? Is it fear of loss? Fear of death? Fear of going hungry? Fear of being unpopular?…

WHAT ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF?

What is the greatest fear of all? It’s not really death, or pain, or suffering. The greatest fear of all is the fear of loss. Everything someone is afraid of comes down to the loss of something: loss of life, loss of financial security, loss of friendship, loss of companionship, loss of job, loss, loss,…

Fear is Faithlessness

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world– our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Yeshua is the Son…

Without Faith There is Only Fear

Scientists who claim that all life was formed by an accident, some coincidence of a random mixing of elements and environment, believe they are right. And, as we have accidentally became more physiologically advanced, we have also been told there is no guidance to the Universe, only the random interactions of different events. Now, as a result…

Living in Fear

How many people do you know that always think the worst that can happen? When they hear about a plane crash they say, “I don’t know if I want to fly anymore.” Or when they get a call late at night, the first thing they say is, “Oh no! Someone must have died!” (The first thing…
