A daily break in your day to celebrate our salvation in Yeshua (Jesus) and our abundant life through the Torah


Keeping Passover and the Spring Feasts: When are they and how are they relevant today?

The Lord’s Holy Days, Feast Days, Jewish Feasts, Appointed Times, Mo’edim — whatever term you use, don’t miss these days!  As a Christian seeking more intimacy in my walk with Yeshua, learning about, experiencing and keeping these feasts (including the Sabbath) has brought me not only into deeper intimacy with him, but God has showered me with new understanding, unexpected blessings, strengthened faith and fresh excitement daily.  I highly recommend it!
Included here is a list of my blog posts about the Spring Feasts.   Read the rest of this page »

Purim – A Reflection of our Own Faith

EstherWhile not one of Yehovah’s commanded feasts, I believe Purim, the remembrance of the story of Esther in the Bible, is worthy of its annual celebration.

Purim is a microcosm of our own lifelong quests:  to walk in Yehovah’s ways despite the pressures around us, to trust that his purposes are being manifest in the events of our nation and world, and to have the courage to submit to his sovereignty and will at every turn.  In short, it’s about living a life of faith.   Read the rest of this page »

You want me to do what?

Have you ever been in a situation in which you wondered what Yehovah was up to? You knew you were in a specific place for a reason, but not sure what it was.  Or maybe you’ve felt you were meant for something more than you’re currently doing and have asked Yehovah to open new doors. You’ve prayed and waited on the Lord for your next assignment.  But once you realize what it is he’s asking of you, it seems daunting, more or different than you had in mind.  You might feel overwhelmed at the prospect, maybe reluctant or anxious.

Take heart, you’re in good company. Joseph, Moses, Noah, Gideon, even Yeshua – they’ve all been where you are.

Hanukkah 2017: Sundown December 12 thru Sundown December 20

Golden MenorahHanukkah – It’s not one of Yehovah’s appointed holy days, not the Jewish Christmas, not even the biggest celebration on the Hebrew calendar.  Sometimes referred to as the “Festival of Lights” or the “Feast of Dedication,” it is mentioned in the Bible as being observed in Yeshua’s day (John 10:22).  It’s the celebration of a victory for the Jews recorded in the book of 1 Maccabees written in the latter part of the 2nd century BC.  Some people would ask, “Why should Christians celebrate Hanukkah; why not just celebrate Christmas?”  Read the rest of this page »

Feast of Trumpets & the New Moon

shofar-newmoonWhat’s the only feast that falls on a new moon? Feast of Trumpets! The Feast of Trumpets always begins on Tishrei 1, the beginning of the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar.  It’s always marked by a new moon.

Genesis 1:14 tells us:

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;”

Deuteronomy, The Book Of Love

What do you see in this image? What you see depends on your point of view, your perspective.

There’s both a white vase and two black profiles, but one of them stands out depending on the way you see things.

This same principle applies when we read the Bible. We read it from a certain perspective. It may be a preconceived notion we have. It may be through a filter of how we’ve come to understand a certain passage. It may be a perspective we were taught. If we’d never read the Bible and pick it up one day, we’ll see things through our own experiences, sensitivities, fears, orientation to life and our notions of God.
