Messianic 101

I want to say, from the start, that this is not something I received from God. This is my personal rant and so if anyone disagrees strongly or feels insulted or put-out, I apologize. I am NOT against anyone calling me “Brother Steve” or using “Brother” or “Sister” with other
Do you know the 10 Commandments? Most of us can tell you all ten, but the problem is whether or not those are the Real 10 Commandments. Specifically, it’s the first commandment I am talking about. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video.
The 10 Commandments were given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai, also called Mount Horeb. These commandments, which are often referred to as “The 10 Words” are the keystone for every religion that falls under the general title of Jewish or Christian. If you prefer to watch a video,
If someone was to ask me which New Covenant epistle talks about ignoring the Torah, I would have to say the letter to the Galatians. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. The reason I say this is because in that letter, more
Oy vey! What a terrible way to start a motivational and edifying message. How can I possibly say that all who call on the name of the Lord won’t be saved when the prophet Joel tells us we will be saved (Joel 2:32)? And if what Joel said isn’t enough,
Most of the time when I am talking about Yeshua or God or what is in the Bible, I always give you the reference so you can see, for yourself, that it really is in the Bible. I’m not gonna do that, today; if you don’t believe what I say,
For me, the most valuable asset I own is my guaranteed ticket to salvation. But, for most people, salvation is something they just can’t fathom or understand, and as such it has no real value to them. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the
Should I show every biblical reference to “Trust in the Lord?” If I did, it would take you longer to read them all then to read the rest of this message! So trust me when I say, there are a lot of references in the Bible telling us to trust
Before I start, let me wish Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday) to all those celebrating the very happy holiday of Purim today. Remember what the Rabbis have said…we should celebrate so much that we get so drunk we can’t tell Mordechai from Haman! And for all my Irish friends out there,
Do you believe in God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? Do you believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah? Do you think that is enough for you to be saved? If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. Well, let me tell
If you look on the Internet for an answer to this question, you will find many different viewpoints. I have often read that the other three gospels are synoptic, while John’s is spiritual; this seems to be the main explanation for the significant differences between John and the other three
If you aren’t familiar with this particular passage in the B’rit Chadashah, it is where Yeshua (Jesus) is telling people that new wine cannot go into old wineskins, and a new patch (unshrunk cloth) should not be sewn onto old clothes. Instead, new wine must go into new wineskins. If
I suppose we are all familiar with the Beatitudes, or as they are also known, the “Be-Attitudes”. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. Many are also familiar with Matthew 5:17, which is where Yeshua says he did not come to change the
In the previous two lessons, we discussed the similarities and the differences between Paul and the prophets of the Tanakh, and now I am going to try to bring it all together. If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. All of these activities
Having seen all the similarities between Paul and the prophets in Part 1, let’s now look at what was different between them. You may be surprised to find out that some of their similarities are also the basis for their differences. If you prefer to watch a video, click on
This is the first part of a three-part teaching series in which we will explore the similarities and differences between the prophets of the Tanakh and the Apostle Paul. In this first part, we will look solely at the similarities between what they did and how they did it. If
At the end of the Gospel of Matthew, as Yeshua was lifted up to heaven, he told his disciples to go and make disciples of everyone. This is known to many as “The Great Commission”, and Yeshua was, essentially, telling his talmudim (students, or in this case, disciples) that they
I have often written about how Christianity has idolized Jesus. In many of the different sects within Christianity, he is considered not just the son of God, but God, himself, and as such, he is prayed to; he is asked for healing, and he is considered to be the one
I once talked about how the Bible is just a book when I was giving a message at the place I used to worship, and not only did I get some pretty passionate disagreements, but one person actually walked out on me. If you prefer to watch a video, click
Back from a week off, driving up to visit Donna’s family in Philadelphia. The drive was full of problems with traffic, taking us nearly 40% longer than it should have, but the trip, overall, was good and we enjoyed being with family. Now back to work. As far as the
