One thing the ancient prophets of ADONAI seem to know too much about is the way modern people would die. Most modern people would die of war, famine, and pestilence, and the 20th century has bore that out. But there is one way moderns would die that was almost indiscribable -- nuclear warfare.
Even though it was almost indiscribable the prophet Zachariah did a good job when he wrote: "ADONAI will strike all the peoples who made… Continue

I got a new tallit from New Jerusalem Gifts. I told ADONAI when He sent it I would go to the three churches in my area because one has an 8:30 service, one has 10:00 meeting, and my church meets at 11am. Me and God play games, so I figured that by putting the order in for the tallit on a Thursday I wouldn't have to make good on my vow until next Sunday at the earliest, but there it was in the Shabbot mail. So on Sunday I put on my kepah and my… Continue

T'VILLA AND "BAPTISM"
By James Trimm
There is a great deal of confusion concerning “baptism”, many have confused the Jewish ritual of T’VILLA for repentance from sin, with that which accompanies circumcision when a Gentile becomes a proselyte Jew.
Water immersion or “baptism” is called in Judaism "t'villa".
BTW the word MIKVAH in Hebrew is a noun referring to the body of water used in a T’VILLA. The verb is T’VILLA “immerse”.
There are several… Continue

With the declaration of the modern state of Israel the world entered the Biblical age known to the prophets as the "latter days," etc.. None of the "latter day" prophecies could be fulfilled without a modern nation of Israel. This was good fodder for Biblical critics who could laugh at Bible believers and say "There will never again be a nation of Israel." They lost that argument on May 14, 1948.
For more information on this and other… Continue

Most people don't have clear goals in life let alone their faith system mapped out.
What am I talking about. When a child is born, the parents plan things and do things to help lay out a plan for their child. Yahweh did the same for mankind.
Before he made the Earth he birth forth his son Yeshua, the image of Yahweh! "Who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of every creature:" Colossians 1:15
This is why John 1 is so clear when we put all the… Continue

A lot of Bible scholars make a strawman of Paul's teaching on the "Last Trump" sounded in 1Corinthians 15:52 and 1Thessalonians 4:16. They try to link it with John's seven trumpet judgement prophecy of the Book of Revelation. They think we are stupid enough to believe that Paul was teaching on the seven trumpet judgement when we know that historically Paul died about 30 years before John wrote the Revelation, and the Revelation was for John not… Continue

Psalms - Part 1 of a 4 Part Introduction
The Samurai are often regarded as lethal oriental warriors of a bygone era without much thought to what motivated them. The word “Samurai” means “those who serve in close attendance to the king.” The philosophy of the Samurai was, “When one is serving officially or in the master's court, he should not think of a hundred or a thousand people, but… Continue

1. both sexes of humans are in the image of Elohim,
is a feminine noun, accompanied mostly by feminine verbs,
3. the Ruach’s feminine actions are birthing and bearing,
4. She’s described… Continue

The so-called floating "Lunar Sabbath" is a recent invention. There
is no evidence that anyone ever followed it until recent times. To the
contrary the historical evidence PROVES that the ancient Hebrews
(Including Yeshua himself) kept the Seventh day of the week
("Saturday") and not a so-called floating "Lunar Sabbath".
The following information was obtained from, "The Anchor Bible
Dictionary" Vol. 5; Pg. 853f.

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
My understanding of this verse is that the evil one's intention is to change times and laws. Concerning changing laws, HaSatan certainly has distorted God's laws with his deceptions that the Torah has been done away with. Much has been written on this… Continue

Nazarene Goals we should have as Nazarene is clear goals and directions we should be working towards.
What we are trying to do is proclaim two things "To the law(Torah) and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variables, neither shadow of turning. " James 1:17

Torah and Tradition
By Jason Jordan
Since entering into a Nazarene Israelite walk, my wife and I have noted significant differences with a great many things pertaining to this faith and our former lives as Christians. Along the way, some people on the fringe of this movement have asked questions and made valid enquiries as to the origin of customs, rituals and liturgies involved in keeping Shabbat and… Continue
