Call no Man Rabbi

Most people who resent the term rabbi quote from Matthew 23:8, but to have a better understanding you must include the following verses to verse 10. A literalistic approach to Matthew 23: 8-10 is inappropriate in the reading of this passage for the following reasons. Yahshua also warns against being called “father” or “teacher” in… Read more »

Binding and Loosing Another Perspective

Another Perspective In the last few years, HaSatan has been “bound” repeatedly by sincere Christians. Yet, he has obviously become increasingly active. Large meetings have been held in a number of cities across the United States, where as many as 10,000 Christians have been led in “binding” various spirits such as crime, murder, homosexuality, etc…..

The Tallit in the NT

Introduction Since I’ve come to believe and invest my life in Yahshua the Messiah, the promised One of Israel, I have progressively been concerned with the Gentile Churches lack of understanding, missed opportunities, and poverty of knowledge because of their reluctance to examine Jewish concepts extant at the time of Yahshua’s visitation. It is the… Read more »

The Seat of the Spirit and the Seat of the Soul

The False Face of Spirituality I want to take you on a journey to find, if possible, where the seat of the spirit and the seat of the soul reside. In many passages of Scripture there seems to be a blurring of the spirit and soul, yet in other Scriptures there seems to be a… Read more »

Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. What does this mean bind and loose?

The Feasts & Human Childbirth

“Prophecy in the Festivals of Israel” The average human pregnancy is 280 days. The ideal Jewish year (lunar) is 280 days starting at the spring equinox with the first day of Nisan. If a pregnancy started on the first day of spring, March 21st it would end on December 25th. This is in my opinion… Read more »

Heaven and Hell

We hear so much about “going to heaven” or ‘going to hell.” Does anyone really understand what is “heaven” or what is “hell”? Are they geographical points somewhere in the universe or is it instead a state of mind? What about all the other references in the Bible to places like: Paradise, Sheol, Hades; how… Read more »

RUACH HA KODESH

Introduction I want to posit a few questions to you below as we examine the Ruach Ha Kodesh. In most statements of Faith, the Ruach HaKodesh as one of the persons of the G-d head. What is a person?
