Your Support Made a Difference in Mudanda

September 27, 2017

As the sun rose on our campsite in Mudanda, Zimbabwe, we could hear the chattering and movement of the massive crowd of people who were still in line outside the nearby Clinic compound. It was the last full day of our Medical Clinic, and many had stayed throughout the night to ensure their places in line. As we ate breakfast that Thursday morning, we heard the musical hum of their conversations. There were about 2,000 people gathered, excited to receive medical care they could not otherwise a...

Atonement for Sin in a Post-Temple Era

September 25, 2017

Yom Kippur (YOM kih-POUR), or the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the Jewish year. It is the day when, in Israel’s history, the entire year’s sins were forgiven and removed making the way for reconciliation with the holy God. The Hebrew Scriptures provide instructions for the Day of Atonement in Leviticus chapters 16 and 23 as well as Numbers chapter 29. Most of the priest’s duties for the day centered on the Temple where he offered sacrifices, burned incense and, on this one day a...

The Miracle of the Hebrew Language

September 22, 2017

I’m writing to tell you about an ambitious project to document every word in the Hebrew language. It marks the next step in the miraculous revival of a language once believed by some to be dead. Hebrew as a spoken language began to fade after Jewish people were scattered around the world through various exiles and other events. For many centuries, Hebrew was used only in its written form. In the late 19th century, reviving spoken Hebrew became a vital part of the Zionist movement as Jews b...

Reflection at Rosh Hashanah

September 19, 2017

Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year – is a time of reflection and expectation. Just as when January 1 approaches, Rosh Hashanah draws Messianic Jews as well as all Jewish people to look back on the previous 12 months and gaze ahead to the unfolding new year. When we reflect, we think quietly, ponder, consider, mull over, observe, study, examine and contemplate. Rosh Hashanah means “head of the year” in Hebrew, and Jewish tradition teaches that at this time, God decrees a judgment on the li...

Israel Takes Decisive Action

September 15, 2017

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that Hezbollah was likely planning to take over the Syrian chemical weapons plant that was bombed by Israeli warplanes last Thursday. A former Israeli national security adviser told the Post that the chemical weapons plant was likely targeted because of fears that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah had asked the Syrians to hand over the facility to his Lebanese terrorist group. Nasrallah had visited the Syrian capital Damascus just before the Israeli air stri...
