The Gap Between A Lie And The Truth

Ani Mitkaven! Do you remember what this translated Hebrew phrase means? It means, “I really mean it!” Today I want to write about what a useless phrase this really is. The context concerns the gap between what we say and what we do. It is a gap that should not exist. If we have to…

Was Yeshua Successful? Part 8

Today we will illuminate the 3rd stated (by me previously) purpose of Yeshua’s coming. But first, let’s review. Jewish people are usually averse to receiving Yeshua as Messiah, mostly because the rabbis of His day (2,000 years ago) rejected His claim of deity. Yeshua said of Himself … John 10:30 I and the Father are…

In Luke chapter 6 we find a pattern to emulate. The pattern is as follows: pressures lead us towards prayer and  intimate prayer leads us into the Presence of God. We might call this the three P’s of our spiritual success: Pressure, Prayer and Presence All of us face difficulties, and when we do it…

Was Yeshua Successful? Part 7

Let’s look at the second purpose for Yeshua’s first coming in our quest to answer the question, “Was Yeshua successful?” 2. He is the image of the invisible God. Since we can’t see God and live, Yeshua came as one of us so we could see the image of God manifest on earth. It is…

The Dancing God

Did you know that God is a dancing God? My guess is that you would say, “Yes!” thinking of the well-known verse in Zephaniah 3:17 where we read in some  translations that “He will dance for joy over you with singing.” (TLV) I would also venture to guess that when most  believers think of God…

Was Yeshua Successful? Part 5

As we have established, success is not a destiny, but a process. For example, a successful student, has many mini-successes along the way to graduation. You can be a successful student one day at a time, one class at a time, one test at a time, one assignment at a time. This makes me want…

Was Yeshua Successful? Part 4

The answer to the question, “Was Yeshua successful?” depends on who is answering and what expectations he/she has. Since I write everything from a Jewish perspective, what did the 16 Jewish writers of the Hebrew Scriptures (over 1400+ years) have to say about the coming Messiah? Let’s take a look. (This may take a while.)…

Was Yeshua Successful? Part 3

I get this question all the time. “Since the Temple is now destroyed (this happened 2,000 years ago in 70AD), how do Jewish people make atonement? The Torah commands the shedding of blood for atonement, but there is no sacrificial system today for the shedding of blood.” When the Temple was destroyed, it was a…
