U.N. Unanimously Accepts Iran Deal – Congress, and Israel, Not Happy

July 24, 2015

The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved the Iran nuclear deal on Monday. The deal appears to grant Iran generous concessions without, as many believe, enough accountability, and it has garnered great concern both in Israel and among the United States Congress. Iran remains Israel’s biggest threat, and the anti-America language frequently spoken in Tehran gives evidence that the nation is a threat to the U.S. as well. It is not surprising, then, that when President Obama gave ...

Insider's Insights: Is the Goal of Destroying Israel Now Attainable?

July 23, 2015

Is the Goal of Destroying Israel Now Attainable? Last week in this space I mentioned that President Obama’s recently announced “deal” with Iran would make the world a far more dangerous place in the long run by giving Iran a pathway to nuclear weapons. What’s more, I pointed out that it will make life much more dangerous for Israel and America’s other Middle East allies in the short run.This assessment was validated in a big way this week — by Iran itself! Iran’s deputy foreign minister empha...

Introducing: Confessing the Hebrew Scriptures

July 23, 2015

Confessing the Word of God is powerful in all languages. Confession of God’s Word is a biblical discipline and releases the power of God’s promises in our lives. When we confess God’s Word it gives us, as the Bible calls it: “ears to hear”. However, the promises of God were originally written in Hebrew. The language of Hebrew is called the Holy Tongue - the sacred tongue and the language of the prophets. We will be posting a Hebrew prayer of the week in English and the original Hebrew along w...

Messianic Judaism Gets a New Bible

July 17, 2015

The Bible. It is the Word of God, His communication to us. It is His arm extended to the heart of man offering us life, eternal life. The Bible was given to the Jewish People to record and preserve. Scribes meticulously copied the words onto scrolls of parchment. Theirs was an incredibly holy work. So careful were they, and so respectful of God’s words to man, that no error in transcription was tolerated. Given to the Jews and written from the context of a Jewish perspective, the...
