The Ultimate Clash of World Views

The Ultimate Clash of World Views by DAN JUSTER AUGUST 16, 2020 In one of my recent posts, I distinguished and sought to define the differences between the liberal-left of center Democrat, the leftist Democrat, and the radical far-leftist. The radical left is based on an integrated world view to a much greater extent than the left of center and the left. Some of the positions of the last two are incompatible with a biblical world view, especially on abortion. But the radical left views are almost totally the opposite of Biblical teaching. When the left of center and left give in to the radical left, they then become an anti-“God of the Bible” force. While some may see the whole D

A Glutton and a Drunkard

A Glutton and a Drunkard FFOZ The Torah says that if a son refuses to heed his parents and if he indulges in a life of lasciviousness, the parents should bring him to the elders of the city and have him tried and stoned. They shall say to the elders of his city, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey us, he is a glutton and a drunkard.”(Deuteronomy 21:20) The Torah lists five qualifications. The son must be stubborn, rebellious, disobedient, a glutton, and a drunkard. In Luke 7:34, the Master alludes to this passage when He says, “The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Behold, a glu

PARASHAT KI TEITZEI

Saturday 29th August 2020 9th Elul 5780 PARASHAT KI TEITZEI Alan Gilman Deut 21:10 – 25:19; Isaiah 54:1-10; Matt 24:29-42 You shall not charge interest on loans to your brother, interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything that is lent for interest. You may charge a foreigner interest, but you may not charge your brother interest, that the LORD your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. (Devarim/Deuteronomy 23:19-20) The verses I just read contain a bi

King of the Jews

King of the Jews FFOZ The Torah commands Israel to set a king over them from among their countrymen—in other words, a fellow Jew. To be a true king of Israel, the king must be Jewish. In the days of the apostles, men like Herod the Great and Herod Antipas took the title “king of the Jews” for themselves, but their pedigree was not Jewish. They were not legitimate kings of Israel. You shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses, one from among your countrymen you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman. (Deuteronomy 17:15) Yeshua possessed a long, impressive g

Justice at the Gates

Justice at the Gates Herschel Deut 16:18-20 18 "You shall appoint judges and officers in all your gates, which the LORD your God gives you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with just judgment. 19 "You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. There are three gates mentioned directly or indirectly in scripture that I want to address. The gates of the city The gates of the body, and The gate of heaven There is however, a fourth gate called the gate of hades refe

PARASHAT SHOFTIM

Saturday 22nd August 2020 2nd Elul 5780 PARASHAT SHOFTIM Alan Gilman Deut. 26:1-29:9 (29:8 in TaNaCH); Isaiah 60:1-22; Matt 4:13-24 (Rev. 21:10-27) You shall appoint judges and officers in all your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the LORD your God is giv

Why Tribulation?!

Why Tribulation?! by ASHER INTRATERAUGUST 3, 2020 There will be increasing tribulation in the end times. It is not that God desires difficulties for us; however, there are reasons that these spiritual battles “must” take place. Revelation 1:1 – things which must take place swiftly Revelation 4:1 – things which must take place after this Revelation 22:6 – things which must take place shortly. The necessary tribulations include even the beast government (17:10) and the release of satanic forces (20:3)! As the plagues of Egypt were an essential part of the salvation of Israel, so must there be plagues in the end times before the Second Coming. The rabbis say that “the last redemption (Messiah –

Love and Moses’ Dying Wishes

Love and Moses’ Dying Wishes August 12, 2020 | Anat Schneider Deuteronomy 3:23 through 7:11 is the Torah portion called “Parashat Va’etchanan” (“and I beseeched”). This poignant passage of scripture contains Moses’ dying wishes that he is beseeching and begging of God and others. It brings me encouragement and strength. You have the trembling words so central in Jewish prayer, as Moses beseeches the people to: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” (Deuteronomy 6:4) You have words that help us all remember that we come from slavery to freedom: “And thou shalt say unto thy son, ‘We were Pharaoh’s servants in Egypt…’ ” (Deuteronomy 6:2) You have the words of God’s clear covenant

PARASHAT RE’EH

Saturday 15TH August 2020 25th Av 5780 PARASHAT RE’EH Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17; Isaiah 54:11-55:5; John 6: 35-51 Our parasha this Shabbat is called ‘Re’eh’ – ‘see’. The next three Torah portions - Re'eh, Shoftim, and Ki Taitzei - contain the bulk of the commandments found in Deuteronomy. See (Re’eh), I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside from the way that I am commanding you today, to go after other gods that y

Antichrist in the Church

Antichrist in the Church By Elhanan ben-Avraham July 30, 2020 Antichrist in the Church The Antichrist is called “the man of lawlessness”- anomia – ἀνομία- in Greek (2 Thessalonians 2). That is the very same Greek word used by Jesus when he said, “Not everyone that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you workers of iniquity (anomia – lawlessness). Today many in churches

Selective Empathy and Biblical Compassion

Selective Empathy and Biblical Compassion by DAN JUSTER AUGUST 2, 2020 A family relative is a strong supporter of the Black Lives Matter protests and has played down the violence and riots that have come more from the mostly white radicals who have hijacked the movement. My daughter-in-law wrote a response. Then she was taken to task for not agreeing with the millions of aggrieved black people but pointing out problems with the protests. Then my daughter-in-law wrote a second response, and it was brilliant. She noted that she is a person of color, from Guatemala with Sephardic Jewish, Spanish and native American roots. She knows well about discrimination. She was being treated as if sh

Avoiding Disease

Avoiding Disease Alan Gilman And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you. (D'varim/Deuteronomy 7:15) We live in a health-obsessed age. This is one explanation for the high amount of compliance to government-mandated regulations with regard to the current pandemic. Even among detractors, the basis of their push back is often health concerns, be they physical or mental. Sure, there are other concerns such as the economy or fear of conspiratorial forces, but by and large concern for health is a dominant factor. I know that

PARASHAT EIKEV FFOZ

Saturday 18th August 2020 18th Av 5780 PARASHAT EIKEV By Bread Alone? Moses reminded the children of Israel of their last forty years in the wilderness. Since leaving Egypt, God had provided their every need. Even their clothes and shoes miraculously survived the long sojourn. The LORD fed them manna from heaven, and this provision proceeded directly from the hand of God. Moses explained that God fed them manna to teach them “that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.” A person might suppose that he subsists upon the material things
