Jewish/Gentile Relations in the New Covenant Part 1

Jewish/Gentile Relations in the New Covenant Part 1 by RON CANTOR NOVEMBER 24, 2019 This may be one of the most important blogs I’ll ever write. There is so much confusion when it comes to the Jew/Gentile question. Who does God love more? We all know the answer—God loves all his children equally. However, we don’t always act like it. Some Jewish believers act superior to Gentile believers. Some Gentile believers feel inadequate because they are not Jewish and they wish they had Jewish ancestry. Some Gentile believers believe that God has rejected Israel in favor of the Church, which is called Replacement Theology or Supersessionism. All of the above statements are wrong! The truth is, “God i

Parashat Toldot – Take Two

Parashat Toldot – Take Two Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you and will bless you, for to you and to your offspring I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath that I swore to Abraham your father. (Bereshit/Genesis 26:3) Two weeks ago, we looked at how Isaac may have been traumatized by his father Abraham's divinely inspired attempt on his life. While Abraham was commended for his great faith, Isaac had to live out his days with the memory of the knife over his heart. The aftermath of "the knife" was not Isaac's only challenge. While he is remembered as one of Israel's forefathers, his name forever associated with the God of the Bible, who referred to himself as "the

PARASHAT TOLDOT

30th November 2019 2 Kislev 5780 PARASHAT TOLDOT by Rabbi Dr. John Fischer, UMJC President Gen 25”19 – 28:9; Mal 1:1 – 2:7; Matt 10:21 - 38 This week’s parasha contains a very important part of the ongoing account of Abraham and his family as those specially chosen by God to communicate his covenant blessings to the entire world. But it is also a lesson in proper priorities and perspectives, especially when it comes to responding appropriately to Adonai. And yet, it’s a story that is usually misunderstood and as a result is inaccurately told. It’s the account of Jacob

Satmar Rabbi Lands in Jerusalem to Destroy Israel

Satmar Rabbi Lands in Jerusalem to Destroy Israel By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 19, 2019 , 2:54 pm “He changes times and seasons, Removes kings and installs kings; He gives the wise their wisdom And knowledge to those who know.” Daniel 2:21 (The Israel Bible™) A political insider confided in Breaking Israel News, suggesting a theory to explain the sudden visit by the Satmar Rabbi to Israel. The insider suggested that the Rabbi, who is close to many Arab leaders, intends to facilitate a coalition between the left-wing leader Benny Gantz and the Arab parties in Israel, a role that Haredi political and religious leaders have always taken in Israeli politics. Thousands of Satmar Hasidic

Israel Destroys Iranian HQ in Syria

Israel Destroys Iranian HQ in Syria By Avi Abelow November 20, 2019 Israel retaliated against an Iranian missile attack on Northern Israel the night before. The Israeli airforce attacked the central headquarters of Iran’s Quds force in Syria and look what happened to the Syrian missile system! The Syrian ground to air rockets fall right back down to the ground after takeoff! The Intelli Times intelligence blog theorizes that this may indicate a loss of radar lock after the launch, or another proactive action that prevented the missiles from starting their course toward the target. This would appear to be an extremely sophisticated system previously not seen before. Defense Min

Palestinian Authority officially recognizes Palestinian Evangelical Council of Churches after 12 yea

Palestinian Authority officially recognizes Palestinian Evangelical Council of Churches after 12 year effort. It is my deep conviction that Evangelicals in North America and around the world who love Israel and the Jewish people must also love all Arabs, including the Palestinian people. The Bible is crystal clear: God loves all people everywhere. God most certainly loves the Palestinians. Indeed, He cares for them immensely and wants follows of Jesus to care for them, encourage them and pray for them. The Lord especially wants us to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Palestinian Evangelical churches. We may not agree on everything theologically or geopolitically. Nor d

PARASHAT CHAYEI SARAH

Saturday 23rd November 2019 25th Cheshvan 5780 PARASHAT CHAYEI SARAH Herschel GEN 23:1 – 25:18; 1 Kings 1:1 – 31; John 4:3 - 14 Don’t you think that it is somewhat odd that our parasha is called ‘the life of Sarah’ and then, we are immediately informed of her death. As usual, the chazal (Sages) offer some insight. There is an old Hebrew saying that says, "The righteous in death are considered alive." The roll call of the faithful and righteous ones found in Hebrews 11 is referred to as an “invisible cloud of witnesses” whose testimony is as valid today as it was during their life

From the Apostles to Reformation

FROM THE APOSTLES TO THE REFORMATION : When the Word of God ceased to exist (Part 3) Shira Sorko-Ram | November 11th, 2019 | For 40 days after his death and resurrection, Yeshua the Messiah encouraged, energized and taught those closest to Him and then left for heaven. Exactly 10 days later on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot (Pentecost), Yeshua sent the Holy Spirit in power to a gathering of 120 apostles and close associates of Yeshua who met on the second floor of someone’s house. That day 3,000 Jews believed in Yeshua and received salvation. The thousands multiplied as the disciples crisscrossed the land of Israel, bringing the Good News to their countrymen everywhere. Then a vision of all k

Akeidat Yitzchak

AKEIDAT YITZCHAK - The Binding of Isaac by Alan Gilman When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. (Bereshit/Genesis 22:9-10) Could you imagine Isaac telling this story from his childhood to own his sons, Jacob and Esau. "Hey boys, did I ever tell you about the time God told my dad to offer me as a sacrifice?" to which Esau laughs and blurts: "You gotta be kidding, Dad. You make up the craziest stories." Jacob, trying to appear overly intellectua

PARASHAT VAYERA

While talking with the Almighty, he sees three visitors (actually angels of the Almighty). Avraham interrupts his conversation with the Almighty to invite them to a meal. One angel informs him that in a year's time, Sarah, his wife, will give birth to a son, Yitzhak (Isaac). God tells Avraham that He is going to destroy Sodom because of its absolute evil (the city is the source of the word sodomy). Avraham argues with G-d to spare Sodom if there c

Shabbat for the Home

Isaiah 56 1 Thus says the LORD: "Keep justice, and do righteousness, for soon my salvation will come, and my deliverance be revealed. 2 Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath, not profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil." 3 Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the LORD say, "The LORD will surely separate me from his people"; and let not the eunuch say, "Behold, I am a dry tree." 4 For thus says the LORD: "To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, who choose the things that please me and hold fast my covenant, 5 I will give in my house and within my walls a monument and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give

Noahide Laws and me?

Audio D'rash: Erev Shabbat Lech Lecha 8 Nov 2019 Shabbat Lech Lecha 9 Nov 2019 Have you every heard of the Noahide Laws? Do you know that before G-d gave all of Torah through the hand of Moses, He had given a number of commandments to Adam, Eve and Noah? So what are the Noahide Laws all about? The principle of the Noahide Laws is that G-d gave the basic commandments to all of humanity when He preserved mankind through Noah during the flood. These commandments are the basis of Honouring the one true G-d for all humanity and are the cornerstone upon which one lives a righteous life whether Jew or Gentile. For a more exhaustive review on the topic, I would suggest you visit: https://noahide.org

Bat Kol at the Transfiguration

Bat Kol at the Transfiguration FFOZ In our days it is even exceedingly rare to hear a voice speak from heaven, but it seems to have been more common in the days of the Apostles. Talmudic literature offers several anecdotes of “a voice from heaven” speaking during the late Second Temple Era. The Hebrew term for the heavenly voice, bat kol, literally means “daughter of a voice,” a way to describe an echo or reverberation. The Talmud uses the term to refer to a voice heard from an unseen speaker. The Apostle Paul heard a voice from heaven speak to him as did the writer of the book of Revelation. The Gospels record three incidents involving a voice speaking from

Why was Peter Imprisoned on Passover?

Why was Peter Imprisoned on Passover? By Dr. Nicholas J. Schaser Israel Bible Center - October 30, 2019 At the beginning of Acts 12, Herod arrests Peter and puts him in jail during the Passover festival (12:3-4). Just as the first Passover in Egypt led to Israel’s liberation from slavery, God replicates that initial Passover night when an angel releases Peter from prison. The disciple’s individual Passover and exodus underscore the continued presence of the God of Israel with the first Jewish followers of Jesus. While Peter sleeps in prison, an angel of the Lord appears during the night, and tells him, “Gird yourself (ζῶσαι; zosai) and bind on (ὑπόδησαι; hupó

Before the Return of Yeshua, Israel must be made jealous so that she will turn to Yeshua

Israel must be made jealous by Dan Juster November 3, 2019 Romans 9-11 and Romans 11 especially provides us with very important information about the return of Yeshua. First, it lets us know that the Jewish people, ethnic Israel, is still God’s elect people even if they did not as a whole under their leaders submit to their King. The most amazing and key verse is Romans 11:28, 29, “Concerning the Good News, they are hostile for your sake, but concerning chosenness (election), they are loved on account of the fathers— for the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.” The nation of Israel still counts. Paul gives us an eschatological vision of how God will deal with the situation of Israel

PARASHAT LECH L’CHAH

PARASHAT LECH L'CHA Rabbi Jonathan Sacks Gen 12:1 – 17:27; Isaiah 40:27 – 41:16; John 8: 51-58 Why Abraham? That is the question that haunts us when we read the opening of this week’s parsha. Here is the key figure in the story of our faith, the father of our nation, the hero of monotheism, held holy not only by Jews but by Christians and Muslims also. Yet there seems to be nothing in the Torah’s description of his early life to give us a hint as to why he was singled out to be the person to whom God said, “I will make you into a great nation … and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” This is surpassingly strange.
