The Land of Israel

Christians have been making pilgrimages to the Holy Land since the first century. We encourage all believers in Messiah to make at least one visit to Israel. In a spiritual sense, the land of Israel is the homeland of all believers. The presence of God permeates the land.

The Man for the Job

Like one who lights one candle with another, [the leaders of Israel] were filled with the Holy Spirit. They were filled with the Holy Spirit taken from the spirit of Moses, but the Spirit of Moses was not diminished. The one candle ignites but the flame on the other candle is not diminished. (Numbers Rabbah 21:15; 13:20)

Life's Little Interruptions

People of faith sometimes speak of God opening doors. This is an idiom that refers to God's divine direction in life. Suppose a person set out to take a job in a certain field for which he was fully qualified. He was confident that the job would be his. Inexplicably, he did not get the position. How does a person respond to that?

Lifted on a Miracle

In John 3, Yeshua told Nicodemus that no one has ascended to heaven, but that He will be lifted up because He descended from heaven. Then He explains, “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.” In this context, His words seem to point toward His ascension.
