Sharing Israel’s Joy and Sorrow this April

March 29, 2021

Israel has three national holidays within one week of each other in the Hebrew months of Nisan and Iyar. This year, they all land in April. The apostle Paul urges us to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep (Romans 12:15). We believe that’s part of what standing with Israel means. Yom HaShoah – Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day The Holocaust is also known as the Shoah, which is the Hebrew word for “catastrophe.” Yom HaShoah (YOHM Ha-SHO-ah) then means “Day of the ...

Passover Day 3 – Saved for Freedom

March 29, 2021

“Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment’” (Exodus 6:6 NIV). Can you imagine what it must have been like when the Israelites left Egypt? Everyone had been slaves their whole lives. Yet, all 600,000 men – plus women and children – just walked right out of the country. That’s something that was not ...

Passover Day 2 – Saved from Slavery

March 28, 2021

“So when your son asks you in times to come, ‘What is this?’ say to him, ‘By a strong hand Adonai brought us out from Egypt, the house of bondage’” (Exodus 13:14). Living in freedom as we do, it’s hard to imagine being enslaved, having no opportunity for a different life. For generation upon generation, Israelites in Egypt were servants of cruel masters and without hope. Born slaves, they died slaves. Today, during a traditional Passover Seder, a child asks, “Why is this night different ...

Passover Day 1 – Saved from Death

March 27, 2021

“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you…” (Exodus 12:13). Every day, across the globe, lives are saved in some way or another. They’re extricated from crumpled cars, plucked from raging waters, carried from burning buildings. They’re pulled back from the path of vehicles, given CPR by strangers or restored to health by medical professionals. In Egypt, God told the Israelites about the final plague He would bring on the ent...

Visit the Garden of Gethsemane

March 26, 2021

“…For the joy set before Him, He endured…” —Hebrews 12:2 Imagine the sound of gravel beneath your feet as you walk in the place where Jesus spent His last hours before He was arrested. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed that if there were any other way, He’d rather not go through what lay ahead of Him – and then He relinquished His will to the Father’s. Hebrews tells us He laid down His own life “for the joy set before Him.” That joy was you. He knew that His death m...

Israel’s election Groundhog Day

March 25, 2021

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Messiah Yeshua. For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yeshua has set you free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2 As we look forward to Passover and remember all God has done for us, I want you to know how much I appreciate you and how thankful I am that you share my love for Israel and the Jewish people. Thinking about the first Passover, the Jewish people in Egypt had no hope of freedom without God’s interve...

Israel needs YOU

March 25, 2021

A year ago, our world seemed to turn upside down. Life as we knew it changed dramatically because of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, Jewish people around the world were preparing to celebrate Passover, which brought to my mind some parallels to the first Passover. We were — and still are — experiencing a plague. Leading up to that first Passover, there were nine horrible plagues. And then the tenth, and worst of all, the death of all the firstborn in Egypt. Passover and all ...
