Rosh Hashanah is a wake-up call

September 09, 2020

As Jonathan Bernis recently wrote, Rosh Hashanah is a wake-up call leading us into the Fall Feasts. Not only is this season a significant opportunity for our own self-reflection, but it is also a time of deep introspection and weighty significance for Jewish people around the world. To Messianic Believers and many Christians, the Fall Feasts also point prophetically to Yeshua (Jesus), His second coming, and Him truly “tabernacling” – or dwelling – with His people forever. We are in the Hebrew...

Let’s Reach Generations!

August 26, 2020

Did you know that ministering to children is often a vital key to reaching families and communities?
