AN OPEN LETTER TO THE BRETHREN

Jerusalem - Eastern Wall
The Eastern Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, with a view of the Eastern Gate, through which Messiah will enter the City.

A few days ago, we had the incredible privilege of commemorating Messiah’s death and resurrection (pictured in the Passover Feast) in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).  We also had the delight and privilege of meeting again with James and Liz Block, believers who live in Jerusalem and founders of of Selah Worship Music.  James told us of a fresh and exciting understanding that Abba has given him.

Jan. 12, 2016: A day of prayer and fasting for the House of Israel

natsab

I would like to invite you to join a group of friends and colleagues who will be setting aside January 12, 2016 as a day of prayer and fasting for the House of Israel.  Specific points of prayer:

  • Dry bones to be awakened and restored
  • Blind eyes to see
  • Wisdom and discernment for those seeking avenues of restoration to Judah
  • Bones to come together
  • Unity
  • The move of the Spirit in breathing life into the bones
  • The will of our Father in these days

This particular day is important in that you will be joining the voices of many others to a specific end.  We need your earnest prayers that day and continued prayer in the days that follow.

Thank you for standing in the gap with us.

YouVersion, Romans 1:16 and the Gospel of the Kingdom

Pete Rambo (author of the blog ‘natsab’) offers us a chance to carefully consider The Gospel that Yeshua/Jesus and the apostles taught – the message of The Kingdom. Well done, Pete!

natsab

Every day, YouVersion has a ‘Scripture of the Day.’  Most are ‘vanilla verses’ that I might read while surfing in or out of the program for some other purpose such as making a Scripture image or conducting a little guerrilla operation behind Christendom lines… 😉  Occasionally, one of the verses will catch my eye and start a thought trail.

Romans 1:16 was a recent verse most students of Scripture have memorized,

image_editor_144230710317216 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

I was raised believing this verse and Paul’s ministry in general, as well as Messiah’s work in particular was all about personal salvation.  But, is that really why He came?  Certainly, it is part of the mission of Yeshua/Jesus, but was that His primary ministry?

Why would…

“IT IS MY BROTHERS WHO I AM SEEKING” – The Lost Sheep of the House of Israel are Returning Home

olivetrees_smIn May of this year (2015), John and I will be attending the First Ephraimite/Northern Israel National Congress in Israel.  The Congress will begin to lay the groundwork for the reunification of Judah and Ephraim – a reunification that is a constant theme of Scripture.  To say we are excited about the Congress is a tremendous understatement – it’s basically all we think and talk about!  This Congress is a huge step in the fulfillment of prophecy – it is so incredibly important!  We are in awe that Abba has permitted us to be a part of it.  It will take everything in us to be used of YHVH as He brings this all about.  Praise Him!

Etz B’ney Yosef is one of the sponsors of the Congress.   Pete Rambo (natsab) found this article on Etz B’ney Yosef’s site and reblogged it.  I had to reblog it, too – the passages quoted will knock your socks off!  These are all passages that I had been planning on writing about, but this article will do the trick!!  Read and be blessed!!

The Importance of the Kingdom To Believers

Seek-First-The-Kingdom-Of-God-And-His-RighteousnessHubby John and I originally published this article May 26, 2014 at our joint blog, The Coming Kingdom.   We’ve found that it is quite an eye-opener for most Christians to learn that what scripture teaches about the Kingdom and what the church has passed down about it are pretty different things!  The lesson we learned: Stop relying on teachers and allow the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) to lead as the Scriptures speak for themselvesContinue reading The Importance of the Kingdom To Believers

THE SECOND EXODUS

WildernessMost believers in the Christian church have never heard of “The Second Exodus” nor is it taught as it relates to His Kingdom.  Is there a basis for such a teaching and what role does it play in Y’shua’s return?

We are still examining the various teachings pertaining to this subject, but our focus is to learn what Scripture has to say about it.  What we are finding in Scripture is totally different from the teachings we have come across thus far.  We have studied this topic fairly thoroughly in the Word, but there is still more to be considered.  Nevertheless, at the request of friends and family, we present what we have learned so far.

Y’shua and the Torah in the Kingdom

REBLOGGED from The Coming Kingdom, by John and Sue Wyatt, originally published July 12, 2014.

King YehoshuaY’shua rejoices that His Kingdom will be known for its adherence to the wonderful Word of YHVH – His Torah!  His Kingdom will be a righteous Kingdom, its citizens displaying the Character of YHVH for all to see!   Continue reading Y’shua and the Torah in the Kingdom

Thanksgiving in the Kingdom, Part II

“To put it another way, the sacrifices have never brought atonement for sin, nor have the sacrifices alone ever brought God’s people close to Him. It’s the other way around: God’s people present sacrifices and offerings because He has brought them near in spite of themselves. This is the perspective not only of the sacrificial system, but of God’s entire Torah (Law). We do not keep His commandments so we can get close to Him. We keep the commandments because He has brought us near to Himself by providing the only sacrifice that could do so: His very own Son, the Lamb of God.” 

The Barking Fox

The various offerings for guilt, trespass, or sin were important elements of the Temple service, but they were only a small part of the many types of offerings God specified for His table.

More Than Just Sin

At the heart of our misunderstanding of the sacrificial system is the assumption that it is all about sin.  Since the blood of the animals foreshadowed the atonement that would come in Messiah’s sacrifice, and since that atonement came to pass through Messiah’s sinless death on the cross, the assumption is that sacrifices are no longer necessary.  Sadly, such reasoning betrays incomprehension of the reason God instituted sacrifices.  Messiah Yeshua did indeed die as the “Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29-34; see also Isaiah 53 and Revelation 5).  His death most certainly provides the only

DO BELIEVERS REALLY “GO TO HEAVEN”?

Will Angels escort you to the Heavenly realm?  Scripture says nothing about this.
Will Angels escort you to the Heavenly realm? Scripture says nothing about this.

If we comb through the scriptures, we will never find a reference telling us that the final destination of believers is YHVH’s Heavenly Realm, [1] yet this is what we are traditionally taught in the church – in every denomination – despite the fact that Y’shua said, “No one has ascended to heaven except He who came down from heaven, the Son of Man.” (John 3:13(And a whole lot of people had already died when He said this.)  Continue reading DO BELIEVERS REALLY “GO TO HEAVEN”?
