Israel facing government questions and Hamas attacks

November 08, 2019

Israel faces Hamas threat while government still remains in question Last weekend, Hamas operatives unleashed a barrage of missile fire along Israel’s southern border. A total of 10 rockets were fired overnight on Friday, setting off the alarms along Israel’s border towns. Eight of the 10 rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system. Some property damage and minor injuries were reported. But the mental and emotional devastation simply can’t be calculated. The on...

It Could Never Happen Again…Could It?

November 05, 2019

Jeremiah 17:9 says, “the heart is deceitful above all things.” The New King James goes on to say it is “desperately wicked” while the Tree of Life Version calls it “incurable.” That’s a startling verse, and it’s tough to see that it includes no caveats indicating it’s only referring to “the really bad people.” The Bible boldly claims that we all have wickedness in our hearts, and therefore, we’re all vulnerable to getting carried away by it. Mob Mentality Eighty-one years ago, Michael Bruc...

October 25, 2019

“See, I will gather [the Jewish people] out of all the countries, where I have driven them in My anger, My fury, and great wrath, and I will bring them back to [Jerusalem] and cause them to dwell securely. They will be My people, and I will be their God. I will give them one heart and one way, so they may fear Me forever; for their good and for their children after them… Yes, I will delight in doing good for them, and with all My heart and all My soul I will in truth plant them in this ...

Turkey invades Syria: What it means for Israel

October 18, 2019

"And the shalom of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Messiah Yeshua” —Philippians 4:7 More potential threats against Israel as violent conflict in Syria continues As the U.S. military withdraws from Syria, the balance of power in this already tumultuous region of the world is essentially up for grabs.

Sukkot Remembrances, Day 7

October 16, 2019

Remembering Our Relationship with Him The booths of Sukkot offer us symbols of the fragility and transient nature of life. Tents are temporary, and so are our earthly lives. This physical world is the only one we’ve known, and though we accept that we’ll someday leave it, life-in-the-moment on planet Earth can feel rather sure. But it really isn’t. Our life could end in any given minute. Besides which, this world won’t last. God is preparing to reveal the New Heaven and New Earth, and thi...

Sukkot Remembrances, Day 6

October 16, 2019

Remembering God’s Presence Remembering Israel’s wilderness days reminds us of how God’s presence dwelled with them during their decades-long wandering. As they roamed the desert, they did so by the guidance of God’s presence represented to them in a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night. After the tabernacle – a tent – was built, God’s glory resided in the innermost room called the Holy of Holies. The booths, or tents, of Sukkot depict God’s desire to live in fellowship with His peo...

Sukkot Remembrances, Day 5

October 16, 2019

Remembering God’s Divine Protection The booths that we build today for Sukkot represent the tents that God had the Israelites live in during their 40-year sojourn in the wilderness. Their tents protected them from the elements and serve as reminders of God’s divine protection of us today. In the Scriptures, God is shown to be our protector. He has been faithful to Israel throughout history when time and time again, enemies have attempted to annihilate her. She is still here, regathered int...

Sukkot Remembrances, Day 4

October 16, 2019

Remembering God’s Holiness In thinking back to the Israelites in the wilderness, we remember that the first generation’s disobedience cost them the Promised Land. Because of their rebellion and sin, none from the generation that left Egypt was permitted to enter the Land God said He would give to His people, except Joshua and Caleb. The multitudes died in the wilderness, and only their children after them entered. God is holy. He is merciful and kind, but He is also holy. Moses was only pe...
