Christmas, Hanukkah or Jesus?

Posted · Add Comment

  Is Hanukkah mentioned in scripture? Yep! Did Jesus celebrate it? Seems like. Was Hanukkah one of God’s prescribed feasts? Nope. Growing up I always loved Christmas – still do! The Santa thing was cool when I was really young but that cover got blown pretty early for me. It was family together that warmed […]

Bunker Busting Missiles and Bible Truth

Posted · Add Comment

What does a bunker busting missile have to do with the promise of a New Covenant? I recently purchased and read a Chronological Bible straight through, desperately hungry to see and know more – the God the Hebrew Scriptures as well as the New Testament, I was ready to shed any cataract impaired lens that […]

Some friends and family may wonder about me – why for the past 4 years do I seem to be obsessed with the subject of Israel and the Jewish people? It’s really so simple – it’s about family…wait, what? Picture this scene. You’re a small child at the dinner table of a rather large family, […]

Shalom!

Lately I find myself moved more and more to open or close texts or emails with “Shalom!” rather than the standard western salutations.  So, am I a Christian trying to be Jewish or something?  Nope!  Just that this word carries so much more fullness and power to me that I would rather declare all thatgoodness […]

Top down or bottom up? So many times as believers we try to understand the world,  God and his purposes for us from the bottom up; this is an issue of the lens we see and reason through, or perspective.

Christians and Jews

“For if their rejection and exclusion from the benefits of salvation were [overruled] for the reconciliation of a world to God, what will their acceptance and admission mean? [It will be nothing short of] life from the dead!” (Rom 11:15 Amp). I have a “hunch”, a seed-thought if you will that has been germinating inside […]

NORMAL CHRISTIANITY

“NORMAL” This morning a phrase from a song wafted into my mind: “Now my faith in you is a mountain that can’t be shaken”, from a powerful worship song from Jesus Culture Music, originating out of the ongoing revival at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. I thought to myself, what an audacious thing for someone […]

Loving Jesus style for husbands

“Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant […]
