Help us bless the people of Israel.

Hebraic Roots

God’s Law and the Christian

{image_1} One of the most misunderstood words in the entire Bible is the one we Christians translate as “law “or “the Law.” In Jewish terms, it is understood as Torah, or halachah, a Hebrew word whose root meaning is “walk” or “way.” Remember, Psalm 119:105-106 says, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

Tithing

“Tithe” meant “tenth” both in Hebrew and Greek and was referenced two thousand years before Yeshua was crucified. Abraham brought tithes to Melchizedek before there was a Temple (Gen. 14).

A Living Sanctuary

The Scriptures about the tabernacle and feasts of the Lord given to Israel are often considered tedious to read. Christians wrongly believe that these are things of the past and have little to do with Christianity. Of course, these passages reflect much about the nature and character of our eternal God, who is “the same yesterday, today, and forever.” All Scripture tells us something about God that, once learned, will help us to become better disciples of our Lord.

(Deut. 8:7-9).

Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness” (Galatians 3:6). Avraham Avinu (Our Father, Abraham) is terminology found frequently in Jewish and Rabbinic literature.1 It does not appear as such in the Tanach (Old Testament).

You Are The Potter – I Am The Clay

Early in the morning, a prophet made his way out of the Potsherd Gate of the city of Jerusalem heading to the house of Yonadav the potter. With quick pace he took the trail churned to fine dust by the hoofs of thousands of sheep and goats to where the Valley of Ben Hinnom and the Valley Kidron intersect. The two valleys cradle Jerusalem in their arms on the east and west, meet, and then head southeast carrying runoff water to the Dead Sea.

How Well Do You Worship God?

{image_1}

The worship of the Lord involves much more than going to a service where we sing some songs and hear the preaching of the Word. Worshipping God is a lifestyle that encompasses our whole being, day in and day out – what we say, what we do, and most importantly, how we do it. Yeshua (Jesus) addressed the issue of “how” we practice our faith in Matthew 6 where He discussed giving, prayer and fasting.
