Last week I spoke about repentance which leads to conversion, to real change in our thinking and in our character. And that this is not only for when we first became believers in Jesus as Lord and Savior. Some of us have had sudden and dramatic experiences and can give a definite testimony of being born-again, or of being filled with a life-changing revelation from the Word of God by the Spirit … Continue reading
The sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross was the fulfillment of all the sacrifices: sin, transgression (guilt), peace, etc. His death in history fulfilled what God had already ‘done’ before time: the Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world (Rev 13:8) Therefore, all of the sacrifices given to Israel in the Torah were based upon that eternally ‘efficacious’ once-for-all … Continue reading

She was chosen, but she also chose: to belong to the treasured people of YHVH God, and to place all her future and hopes in their God. About 1970 years ago, more than 3000 persons who were separated from God because of their … Continue reading
Lev. 10:3 By those who come near Me I must be regarded as holy, and before all the people I must be honored.
Eph 2:11-12 As we continue to let the Tabernacle in the Desert instruct us of God’s pattern for us to approach Him in prayer, the passage from Ephesians notes “the middle wall of separation”, which separated Israel from the other nations. God in His wisdom separated the people He had chosen and called to Himself from … Continue reading
