Why is it that people assume that when John uses the phrase “the Lord’s day” he is referring to Sunday? Actually in the Roman empire there was already a day called the Lord’s day and you are going to be shocked when you find out what it celebrated. Don’t forget to like, subscribe and share!

I’ve heard many teachers say that nowhere in the New Covenant does God reaffirm His covenant with the Jewish people regarding the land of Israel. But is it true? We’ll take a closer look at the New Covenant to find out!

The symbolism is powerful. For eight days we take one candle called the servant candle and light eight other candles. In the same way, Yeshua came as a servant and gave us light. In Israel being a light can be scary. You never know how someone will react to your faith. So last night, when 20-year-old Shai Sol testified of her faith in Yeshua before the whole country, every believer in Israel was challenged and encouraged.

Elana and I were hosting the leaders-in-training group from our congregation, Tiferet Yeshua for the last night of Hanukah. After lighting the candles and eating Sufganiot (1,000-calorie fried donuts), we turned on the TV at 9:00 PM to watch Israel’s newest reality show—HaKochav Haba—The Next Star. And we waited to see Shai.

Her audition began around 9:45 PM. On the show, the hosts first talk to the contestant before he or she sings. Shai got right to the point. “I think I will reveal that I am a Messianic Jew.” The interviewers were confused and asked, “What does that mean?” Shai responds, “Jews who believe in the Tenach (Old Testament) and the New Testament.” Continue Reading…

Last night I went to listen to former Finance Minister Yair Lapid (above left) speak in English to about 1,000 Anglo-Israelis. He started off the evening by telling a personal story.

He takes his daughter on a coffee date every Tuesday. During a recent coffee time, after ordering an espresso, he received a phone call. Normally he lets nothing interrupt these special dates. His office knows not to interrupt him. However, looking at the phone, he saw it was Prime Minister Netanyahu and felt he should answer. He did and the Prime Minister informed him that his services would no longer be needed—he was fired from his post as finance minister.

He hung up the phone just as the waitress was returning with his espresso. He looked at her and said, “When I ordered this espresso, I was the finance minister of Israel. By the time you brought it to me, I was fired and am now unemployed.” Continue Reading…

Personally, I think that the Messiah loves when people worship Him using his name in  every language, but there is something special about the Hebrew name Yeshua—which we will explain in this short teaching. I was surprised when an evangelist I love and respect asked commenters not to use the Hebrew, Yeshua, but refer to the Messiah as Jesus, on his website Facebook page. We challenged him to think through this request, but there was no response. Thus, we decided to make this video to educate folks on the meaning of Yeshua.
