Purim

Ezra Benjamin joins Rabbi Jonathan Bernis for a closer look at the festive holiday of Purim, commemorating a time when God intervened to protect the Jewish people from the Persian empire. Discover God’s redemptive plan, seen through the story of a woman named Esther and God using her to preserve His people in a miraculous way. You’ll be encouraged as you see how God stepped in to make a way where there was none and that He continues to intervene today by placing people in the right places at pivotal times to provide deliverance for His children.

The Right Place and Time

March 09, 2020

Were you ever asked to do something that seemed more daunting than you could handle? Something for which you felt inadequate, unqualified, and frankly, terrified? And, in time, you realized this task was from God Himself? That’s what the young woman Esther faced. God had placed her in the position of queen of Persia, and then presented her with an opportunity to save her people from destruction. And it might have cost her life to try. A Jewish maiden Esther had come to the position of...

Chanukah, Night 8: Miracle of Rededication

December 29, 2019

The word Chanukah means “dedication,” and the miracles the holiday celebrates center on the rededication of the Temple. The victory God won for the Maccabees brought a fresh start for Jewish worship. At last, they had their Temple back, and they could honor God as He had called them. As Believers, whose bodies are called temples of God (1 Corinthians 6:19–20), we have the opportunity of renewed dedication every day. Each new dawn offers us the potential for starting over, drawing closer to Go...

Chanukah, Night 7: Miracle of His Light Shining Through Us

December 28, 2019

As we look at Chanukah and its miracle of light, we can’t forget the remarkable fact that God uses us to shine His light to the world. He places His Spirit inside each one who puts their faith in Jesus as the Messiah. And His light in us reveals Him to those around us. When we love as the Bible commands us and serve selflessly as Jesus did, we display God’s goodness and point a hurting world to Him. New Covenant Scriptures call us to live by the power of God’s Spirit in us rather than from ou...

Chanukah, Night 6: Miracle of Purification

December 27, 2019

God’s instructions for building the Temple had included meticulous detail and beauty. The Temple was His holy dwelling place; it had to be pure. Its desecration at the hands of Antiochus’ regime was unbearable for God’s people. When they regained the Temple, they wanted to cleanse it and rededicate it as soon as possible. God performed the miracle of the oil, enabling the light to burn as they went about this most holy task. God works miracles in our hearts through the gift of new life and th...

Chanukah, Night 5: Miracle of God’s Light

December 26, 2019

Chanukah is about a miracle of light. One of the ways the Bible uses the word light is to represent knowledge. It’s a metaphor that is still used today: we are “enlightened” when we have knowledge and understanding but we’re “in the dark” when we don’t. In the Psalms, David refers to God’s Word as a lamp to light his way. A dark path conceals all kinds of dangers, but enter light, and we have information to guide our steps. With light, obstacles become visible and predators exposed. We see wh...

Chanukah, Night 4: Miracle of Our Salvation

December 25, 2019

None of us deserves the salvation God grants to those who believe in Jesus, and we can’t earn it. We are marred by sins of long ago, let alone today, and we simply don’t measure up. Salvation is a pure gift of mercy and love offered by our holy God through Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). “We all like sheep have gone astray. Each of us has turned to his own way,” Isaiah 53:6 tells us. “So Adonai has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” That God would attribute our sin to Jesus and, in turn, count Yesh...

Chanukah, Night 3: Miracle of Victory

December 24, 2019

The Maccabees faced daunting odds. It would take a miracle, but something had to be done to protect the Jewish people and regain the Temple. The Seleucid army had the backing of Antiochus, but God was on the Maccabees’ side. The small group of revolutionaries fought against the soldiers and, by God’s grace and power, took back the Temple. God gave them victory. God has given us a victory today that we could not attain without Him. Jesus, through His death and resurrection, won the victory ove...
