In Yeshua’s “I am” statement about being the Door of the Sheep,  He teaches us that He is “the Door”, not just “a door”.  He is saying that He is not only our Shepherd who leads us into the sheepfold of the Kingdom, but He is the only door by which we can enter and be saved and find safe pasture (John 10:9).  There are deeper meanings for understanding Yeshua as our door into the Kingdom of God, so come with me now as we dig deeper into the Word to explore these meanings.

Isa 12:4

Bible openedIf you have read the foreword to your Bible, you already know that English-language and international translations of the Bible have purposely altered Scripture, but the translators have explained that they did it for a good reason that was honoring to God.  Frankly, I just didn’t give the matter much thought – after all, if knowledgeable people think it’s okay, it must be okay!   Right?   Continue reading Rewriting Scripture….

Here in America, we talk about ‘God’ a lot.  When we speak of ‘God’, most of us envision the Supreme Being, the Creator of the Universe, the Father of all.  And most of us do not realize that He has a NAME!

He tells us His name over 6,800 times in His Word!  (Our Bibles have replaced His Name with ‘The LORD.’)  Continue reading What’s in a Name?
