Sanctifying God's Name

Sanctifying God CBN Israel Feb 24, 2019 The children of Israel found themselves in the wilderness of Zin (Num. 20:1-13). They desperately needed water, so God instructed Moses to speak to the rock to bring forth water. Moses, however, frustrated with the complaining of the people struck the rock, and bitter water issued forth. As a result of Moses’ disobedience, he could not lead Israel into the Promised Land. That responsibility fell to Joshua. God rebuked Moses and Aaron for their disobedience saying, “Because you did not believe in Me to sanctify Me, before the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore, you will not bring this assembly into the land which I gave to them

Torah Prophecies concerning Israel Fulfilled

Four Torah prophecies charting Jewish history have come to pass: 1) that the Jewish people will be eternal 2) we will be few in number 3) we will be scattered to the four corners of the earth 4) the host nations were ultimately inhospitable to us. This week, 2 more prophecies! One would think, if the Jewish people were so reviled to be persecuted and killed, that we would have little impact upon those nations persecuting and killing us. Yet, the Torah prophesies that we will be: 5). A LIGHT UNTO THE NATIONS "I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. You shall become a blessing. And I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you. Through

Muslims Still Trying to Keep Messiah Out of Jerusalem

Sunday, February 24, 2019 | David Lazarus The Muslim cemetery in front of walled-up Golden Gate. (Uri Lenz / Flash90) Thousands of Palestinians, chanting “Allahu Akbar!” (Allah is great) and waving Palestinian flags broke through into the Golden Gate area that leads up to the Temple Mount over the weekend. Israel had closed the area by court order in 2003 after Hamas and the Islamic Movement activists engaged in subversive activities against the state. Sheikh Abdel Azim Salhab, chairman of the Islamic administration of the Muslim religious areas on the Temple Mount, praised the Palestinians for using force to enter the Golden Gate site. He said they were now moving to open the way for Musli

The joint effort of the people of God working together to fulfill His commandments created a spiritual house worthy of God's Dwelling Presence. And all the skillful men who were performing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work which he was performing. (Exodus 36:4) The building of the Tabernacle required each person to contribute to the work from his own skill set. The tanners did the tanning, weaver

Letter to a thinking atheist

Letter to a thinking atheist by Elhanan ben-Avraham Feb 16, 2019 How, my fellow voyager through life and time, can you believe in Nothing? Nothing, by definition, does not exist. When we both look at the spectacular beauty around us, and remarkable complexity of living things, we might find the idea that everything came into being from nothing, and by mere chance alone, a bit far-fetched, wouldn’t you think? In fact, it might seem a bit more reason-able, and easier to digest, to assume that the entire universe came into being from some supreme wisdom outside the material universe. Even the great mystery and wonder of what we call consciousness would seem to reflect a greater consciou

Anti-Messianic Jewish Update

Anti-Messianic Jewish Update Tuesday, February 19, 2019 | David Lazarus This is a brief roundup of recent attempts to prevent Jewish people in Israel from hearing the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus) from local Messianic Jewish ministries and evangelists. The City of Tel Aviv says that it will prevent the infiltration of Messianic Jewish literature in municipal "street libraries." Working behind the scenes to restrict Hebrew-language Messianic books in the open-air book stalls is Ohr L'Achim, an organization that seeks to prevent attempts to lead Jews away from their faith. Messianic Jews have been placing literature in the public libraries set up around the city to encourage reading. Or L'Achim se

Anti-Semitism Is Deeply Woven into the European Fabric

Feb 16, 2019 by Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld European culture developed in a dominating, hostile Christian environment over more than a millennium. Saying that anti-Semitism is integral to European culture does not make one popular in Europe. This does not change even if one clarifies that this is not the same as saying that most Europeans are anti-Semites. Yet the claim is not difficult to prove. European culture developed in a dominating, hostile Christian environment over more than a millennium. Major incitement against Jews initially stemmed from the Catholic Church. Later, several Protestant churches, including Lutherans, promoted Jew-hatred. If powerful institutions and eli

Terror stipends cost Palestinians $138m in withheld tax revenues

Terror stipends cost Palestinians $138m in withheld tax revenues February 17, 2019 The Israeli government’s security cabinet announced Sunday that it was implementing a law passed last year allowing the Jewish state to withhold funds that the Palestinian Authority (PA) uses to pay stipends to attackers and their families from taxes Israel collects on the PA’s behalf. The PA uses the payments to financially incentivize the murder and maiming of Israeli civilians. Palestinian leaders, including PA President Mahmoud Abbas, have refused to discontinue the practice, notwithstanding laws in Israel and the U.S. that penalize the PA to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars

Parashat Ki Tisa

23rd February 2019 18th Adar 1 5779 Parashat Ki Tisa by Eitan Fishbane, Associate Professor of Jewish Thought Exodus 30:11-34:35; 1 Kings 18:1-39; Mark 9:1-10 A Bearable Lightness In this week’s parashah, we encounter two iconic moments in the epic story of Benei Yisra’el and their reception of the Torah. The first is known as the sin of the golden calf, when the impatience of the people waiting for Moshe’s return leads to their worship of a gleaming physical form in place of God, their redeemer. This narrative event comes to be not only a climax in the biblical story, but also ser

Garments for Honor

The LORD commanded the children of Israel to make special garments for the priests to wear while they officiated in the Tabernacle: "You shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty"(Exodus 28:2). The garments of the priesthood were set apart for the purpose of serving God in the Tabernacle. They were not to be used for any other purpose. Holiness does not mean that there is some kind of a mystical goodness attached to the object, person or place described as holy. It simply means that God does not want it used for anything other purposes than His own. The opposite of something holy is something normal. Not only were the priest's clothes holy garments, they w

SINAI INDABA

SUNDAY 24 FEBRUARY | CTICC 2 | DOORS OPEN 9:00 Some of the featured speakers include: Major General Yaakov Amidror World - shifts of power As the Berlin Wall fell, bringing the curtain down on the Cold War, political commentators talked about “the end of history”, and the ushering in of an era of unprecedented peace. Nearly three decades later, the world is more dangerous and divided than it has ever been. Strongmen leaders hold the reins in countries such as Russia, Hungary, Turkey and the Philippines, and are gaining traction across Europe and Central Asia. Global Jihadism remains on the rise, even in the wake of a waning Isis. New, frightening forms of warfare are emerging, and new battle

Several Palestinians Apologize for Brutal Slaying of Israeli Teenager

Several Palestinians Apologize for Brutal Slaying of Israeli Teenager Tuesday, February 12, 2019 | Israel Today Staff Several Palestinian Arabs on Tuesday visited the home of the Ansbacher family in the Jewish settlement of Tekoa to express deep regret over the slaying of their daughter, Ori Ansbacher, by a Palestinian man last week. "There’s no religion in the world that supports this kind of act," insisted the leader of the Palestinian delegation, Ziyad Sabatin, in remarks to 103 FM, Non Stop Radio, outside the Ansbacher home. "We came to console here today," he added. Sabatin has been pushing coexistence between Jews and Arabs for years, along with many other Palestinians from his hometo

Parashat Tetzaveh - Be the Light!

Parashat Tetzaveh Exodus 27:20 - 30:10; Ezekiel 43:10-27; Matt 5:13-20 Be the Light You shall command the people of Israel that they bring to you pure beaten olive oil for the light, that a lamp may regularly be set up to burn. In the tent of meeting, outside the veil that is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening to morning before the LORD. It shall be a statute forever to be observed throughout their generations by the people of Israel. (Shemot/Exodus 27:20-21) One of the most recognizable symbols of the Jewish people is the menorah, the seven-branched candelabra, intended for exclusive use within the Mishkan (English: Tabernacle) and later the Temple. It's iro

He will also talk about the gap betweenJews and Gentiles in the Church today.

Protecting the “old”

Protecting the “old” by Moran Rosenblit Feb 2, 2019 I’ve really wrestled with last week’s Scripture portion (Parashat Mishpatim ). I spent a lot of time in prayer and seeking the Lord’s wisdom before writing this commentary. My goal in writing this blog is to offer some thoughts to encourage us to think before we rush to make statements and take stances on issues that, at times, contradict what we believe. I’d like to share some of what I wrote on this parasha two years ago: Our weekly Scripture portion opens with a very interesting verse, Exodus 21:1, which is usually interpreted in a negative way, because I believe we misunderstand the essence of what the LORD is s

Do Jewish people need Yeshua (Jesus)? by Daniel Juster

Do Jewish people need Yeshua (Jesus)? By Daniel Juster Jan 31, 2019 The question has challenged both the Jewish and the Christian communities since the first century. Our answer determines much in the way we approach relationships and priorities. The fact that we ask this question, means that there are some who may answer this question with a ‘no’, or at least a partial ‘no’. Since our lives are passionately invested in the primary question of the Jewish need for Yeshua, it is important to answer it clearly and biblically. The view that Jews do not need Yeshua, or at least not so much, can be described in three categories: 1. The Idea that Jesus is not for Jewish People Some teaching says

Parashat Terumah - the set-apart portion

Saturday 9th February 2019 4th Adar 5779 Parashat Terumah Exo 25:1 – 27:19; 1 Kings 5:12-6:13; 2 Cor 9:1-15 ‘And in the ark you shall put the testimony that I shall give you’ - Exodus 25:16 You probably have heard of the Ark of the Covenant, if not from the Torah, then in the series of movies, starring Harrison Ford. You may know that it was a gold-gilded chest that God commanded the Israelites to build in the wilderness. Eventually it was kept inside the inner sanctum of the Mishkan (Tabernacle) and later the Temple. Inside it were special items: the tablets of the Ten Commandments; a sample of the mann
