Messianic Jewish Passover Devotion, Day 3

April 18, 2019

God Searches and Cleans We are in the midst of the Feast of Unleavened Bread that follows Passover night. For seven days, Jewish people are to eat nothing containing leaven (such as yeast and baking soda). The day before Passover, Jewish people search through the entire house to remove all leaven. Every cupboard, drawer, nook and cranny is examined, and some families have even used a feather to clean out every last crumb. In the New Covenant, leaven is a metaphor for sin. “D...

Stand with Israel for Lasting Peace

April 18, 2019

As I write this, there is a grim, devastating reality every citizen living in Israel must face – They are surrounded by enemies who are determined not to rest … until they have destroyed Israel. Israel’s security services have thwarted hundreds of terror attacks in the last year alone. The attacks are far away from any place where tourists visit. But they continue in the border areas. Shira Ish-Ran knows this, as only a mother can. Last December, Shira and her husband, Amichai, were ...

Through the Eyes of a Young Hebrew Slave

April 17, 2019

What would it have been like to be in Egypt thousands of years ago on the night of Passover? Every Jewish person alive at that time had been born into slavery, as were their parents and grandparents. Generation upon generation knew only the bitterness of forced labor and mistreatment. But then, out of the desert comes an 80-year-old Jewish man, who was raised by Pharaoh’s daughter and had left 40 years ago. He has come back to deliver a message to Pharaoh from the God of Israel Himself. “Let...

THANK YOU! For reaching a little girl before her time ran out...

April 17, 2019

Thank you for providing the care Hannah needed … when she needed it the most A deadly infection took her eyesight and threatened to kill her Hannah’s* terrified shrieks echoed across the crowded compound. She was frightened, badly frightened – and in intense, excruciating pain. Her swollen right eye bulged grotesquely from its socket. It was bloody, brown with rot and crusted over with ugly scabs. For months, perhaps years, this little girl and her family had suffered. Hannah’s eyesi...

URGENT: Iran Has Israel Surrounded

April 05, 2019

Not since 2014 have so many sirens terrified the Israeli communities that border the Gaza Strip. Last week’s “accidental” missile launch from Gaza – while horrific and tragic for the seven people who were injured – was a symptom of a bigger problem. Iran has Israel surrounded ‒ and its leaders are obsessed with eliminating Israel. Iran is ‘On Israel’s Doorstep’ The Trumpet recently reported, “Iran has exploited the conflict in Iraq, the civil war in Syria and the political strife in Leb...

Scattered and targeted for destruction

April 02, 2019

Hilina’s* tragic story will shock you. It begins with her scars. The flames have left their mark all along her right side. It was only by God’s grace that she escaped with her life. No one even remembers anymore why the mob was so angry. The reason was probably trivial. But Hilina was an easy target. They surrounded her house. And then, they set it on fire — All because she is a member of the Beta Israel, or House of Israel, a descendant of one of the “Lost Tribes of Israel.” Because, t...

Has God Raised Up a Modern-Day Esther?

March 29, 2019

During his visit to the Middle East last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Chief Political Analyst David Brody and Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell of the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) in Jerusalem. The interview occurred soon after The Times of Israel reported Pompeo’s visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall as “the first time a U.S. secretary of state visited Jerusalem’s contested Old City accompanied by a senior Israeli official.” That senior Israeli official was Prim...
