Messianic 101

Sadly, most Christian religions (and there are certainly enough of them!) have taught their followers that the Torah is just for Jews, and that it is made up of laws and requirements that they, as followers of Jesus, don’t have to obey. They seem to totally ignore the fact that
I know, I know- you have always been told that Yeshua (Jesus) is your Savior, and if you call on his name, you will be saved, your sins will be forgiven, you will be cleansed, yadda-yadda-yadda. Well, it takes a lot more than that. If you prefer to watch a
For those of you who are wondering, “What the heck is a LIFO?”, it is an accounting system for calculating the cost of goods being sold to determine the profit margin. Last In, First Out (LIFO) means that you calculate your profit based on how much it cost to produce
Of course, Yeshua (Jesus) is called the Passover Lamb, but that isn’t really the full description what his sacrifice provided. In fact, his sacrifice not only served to provide the means for us to be forgiven of our sins, but consequently, also allows us to commune with the Almighty. If
Before the Messiah was sent to us, we were given the Torah to identify what sin was, and we had the sacrificial system and the temple in Jerusalem to provide us the means for being forgiven when we did sin. But after the temple was destroyed, things changed. If you
God told us how to worship him, which Holy Days he wants us to observe, and how to treat each other. he did all that right at the very beginning of the bible, in those first 5 books, called the Torah. So why is it that the vast majority of
From a biblical viewpoint, “fear of the Lord” doesn’t mean that we are afraid of him, rather that we worship him. But when we do that, are we doing it because we want to, or because we are afraid of what someone else may think if we don’t? If you
Throughout the Bible we see how God uses people to perform his punishments on the sinful. Since God is unchanging, doesn’t it seem reasonable to consider that his methods would also be unchanging? If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. God definitely did
I know this sounds a little off; I mean, of course I accept God for who he is. What else can I do? He is the Lord of lords and King of kings, and the Almighty. Who else would I think he is? If you prefer to watch a video,
There are two very important messages in the Megillah of Esther; one has to do with the fact that even if Esther didn’t ask the king for protection, it would come from some other source (this implies God’s protection, but did you know that this is the only book in
What could I possibly do that would, in any way, ever lessen the importance of, or cheapen, the powerful name of the Messiah, Yeshua?Maybe that happens when we use it so often and so automatically that it carries no weight, anymore? If you prefer to watch a video, click on
I have stated this a number of times, and sometimes I get someone who disagrees, stating that there were people in the Bible who are said to be blameless and righteous.And they’re right, but does that mean they were also 100% Torah observant? If you prefer to watch a video,
We all know that the Bible tells us not to take vengeance, which is some form of retribution against someone who has harmed or wronged us in some way. Instead, we are told to wait upon the Lord, because he says that vengeance belongs to him (Deuteronomy 32:35). But… did
Yeshua told us that when we pray, we are to pray in his name- not to him, but in his name, meaning to use him as a sort of reference when praying (which is assumed to be directly to God) so that God knows we are one of Yeshua’s flock.
This may sound redundant, but really- thank God for God! If not for him, what would we have to look forward to? If you prefer to watch a video, click on this link: Watch the video. There would be no afterlife, unless you were a believer in reincarnation, and the
I am writing my fifth book, which is a book about the Bible for people who want to know what the Bible says, but don’t want to have to read the whole thing. And in the introduction, I review how the Bible was put together. And when I did that,
Most of the times I talk with Christians, they identify Yeshua (Jesus) as the one who is the Alpha and the Omega. This is based on Revelation 22:13, when Yeshua tells John, in his vision of the new earth and the new Jerusalem, that he is the Alpha and the
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Yiddish, tsouris means troubles or problems. If you are old enough or competent enough to understand what I just wrote, then you know what tsouris is like because life is full of tsouris. If you prefer to watch a video, click on
You know the type- they tell you what you must believe, they have their own ideas formed by taking verses or phrases out of context and forming an entirely different tenet based on it, and they also insult you, your beliefs, and even go as far as to tell you
First off, let’s set the record straight- heaven is the domain and abode of God and the angels. According to everything we read, especially in Revelation, we who are written in the Book of Life will be on a new Earth, with a new Jerusalem lowered from the heavens. If
