God Brings Us Out and Through: To Strengthen Us for Future Victory

April 14, 2020

“…Do this so that all the days of your life you will remember the day when you came out from the land of Egypt” (Deuteronomy 16:3). Passover was a watershed event for Israel. God brought them out of bondage by His mighty hand to fulfill His promises to their forefathers. He commanded them to commemorate Passover every year, throughout every generation and forever, so that they would always remember what He did for them. During centuries of slavery, Israel had become a vast nation of peop...

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 1:2 (NIV) Shalom! Weeks ago, before the words “coronavirus,” “pandemic” and “social distancing” became part of our daily language, you could turn on the news at any time and hear what was going on in Israel. Now, everyone is so focused on their own slice of the world that Israel barely gets a mention. We at Jewish Voice are still paying close at...

Revelation 1 - He is our Hope and Overcomer | Day 1

April 13, 2020

Yeshua declares He is our Hope and has Overcome. “The revelation of Yeshua the Messiah, which God gave Him to show to His servants the things that must soon take place.” —Revelation 1:1 TLV In Revelation chapter 1, we find that God is revealing and has revealed Yeshua our salvation, but he wants us to see Yeshua as not just the suffering servant, but also as the King of kings and Lord of lords. Look how John describes Yeshua and how Yeshua reveals himself to John in this ch...

God Brings Us Out and Through: So We Can Glorify Him with What He’s Given Us

April 13, 2020

“Then I shall grant these people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians. …when you go, you will not leave empty-handed. Every woman is to ask her neighbor… for silver and gold jewelry and clothing. …So you will plunder the Egyptians” (Exodus 3:21–22). Have you ever wondered where all the gold, silver and fine fabrics came from to build the tabernacle in the wilderness? God asked the Israelites, whoever was willing, to contribute these treasures for the making of His dwelling place among them. T...

God Brings Us Out and Through: To Give Us Good Things

April 12, 2020

“So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, to bring them up out of that land into a good and large land, a land flowing with milk and honey…” (Exodus 3:8). At Passover, we sing the song “Dayenu,” which means “enough” in Hebrew. The first line of the song declares, “If He had brought us out of Egypt, it would have been enough.” We know that God didn’t merely free the Israelites from Egypt and leave it at that. He parted the Sea for them and then brought the wat...

Hope Through Pursuing the God Who Draws Near | Day 7

April 12, 2020

“Have them make a Sanctuary for Me, so that I may dwell among them." Exodus 25:8 (TLV) From the garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem, the Lord shows us over and over how much He desires to make Himself known to us and dwell or be with us. Consider His appearing to Moses in the burning bush, revealing His attributes and righteousness on Mount Sinai, and the detailed construction of the Tabernacle which foreshadowed Yeshua’s life on earth when he was among us. These are some of the examples...

A Message of Hope, Encouragement, and How to Overcome from the Book of Revelation

April 12, 2020

When we face times of trial or uncertainty in the world as Believers we should first turn to the Scriptures and prayer. We often look at the scriptures as our source of hope, encouragement or to be inspired to overcome. We tend to look in lots of places in the Scriptures other than the book of Revelation as a source of hope. However, I think you can find encouragement and should take time to use this book as a source of inspiration. In the book of Revelation, we find the world to be in the mo...

Prayers to Pray this Passover

April 11, 2020

Pesach, or Passover, is steeped in biblical history, practice and significance. It is one of the three Feasts for which Jewish men are told to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread following it are a time of remembering God’s deliverance, ceasing from labor and experiencing refreshment. Modern-day celebrations include families and friends gathering not only to share in the Passover Seder but also for traveling, visiting and recreation. The Passover recorded...

Hope in God's Purposes Even in Hard Times | Day 6

April 11, 2020

So Adonai said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he said. Exodus 4:2 (TLV) Shiphra and Puah were Hebrew midwives who defied a cruel and powerful despot out of fear of God and avoided a genocide of Hebrew babies. Bezalel and Oholiab were called out of their usual work into leadership and execution of God’s blueprint for the tabernacle. And Moses was drawn out of the water and into the palace; banished to the desert; and then raised up to lead the people of God. Exodus 4:2...

God Brings Us Out and Through: To Draw Us Apart to Him

April 11, 2020

“I will take you to Myself as a people, and I will be your God…” (Exodus 6:7a). Life can be hard. It can serve up pain, sorrow or demands bigger than we feel equipped to bear. As Believers in Jesus, we have God’s presence with us always through His Holy Spirit dwelling in us. Life’s challenges have the ability to draw us closer to God in search of the strength and comfort only He can provide. During centuries of slavery, God never left the Israelites. And in His time, He stepped in to re...
