Messianic Judaism?

What an interesting article/post. Tonight I was looking for something specific concerning Covenant Theology, when in my search came upon this older post over on Pyromaniacs. The reason it caught my eye was a discussion a few of us had on the board I help out on, concerning the topic of divisions within the Body […]

Post Temple Judaism and Christianity: “The Temple of Messiah”

Messianic Good News has posted a wonderful teaching by Peter Cohen, “The second destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E., along with the loss of the second temple, marks a watershed in Jewish history, even if not everyone saw it that way at the time … at this point Jews and the nascent Christians each began […]

“O foolish Galatians..”- From Christianity to Judaism

(HT) This story reminded me of Barbara Richmond. For those who are not acquainted with her and her story, Barbara was a well know Christian author and lecturer who also ran a ministry in which she sent out letters titled The Jerusalem Report, a few times a week. She was respected by many other well […]

New direction for the “new” Promise Keepers

Et tu, Bill McCartney? Religion Dispatches: Promise Keepers 2.0: Women and Jews Invited quote.. Whatever happened to Promise Keepers? PK was one of the most visible and controversial religious movements of the 1990s. It burst onto the scene in the early years of that decade, determined to change men’s hearts and transform them into “warriors […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” Conclusion

This will be concluded with Alan Morrison’s closing thoughts. This has been a lengthy essay, one I’ve only shared a portion of. Because I omitted entire sections, I encourage you, if time permits, to read it all. What I personally found of interest was the fact this was originally written in 1998. I can honestly […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (1)

I’d like to thank those at Messianic Good News (an excellent ministry) for granting permission to share portions of this message. A Biblical Analysis of Judaism & the Modern State of Israel in Relation to the Church of Jesus Christ   There are certain Bible phrases which easily cause controversy and disagreement. For example, “…and […]

Former Mossad Chief: The nation of Israel is galloping blindly toward Bar Kochba’s war on the Roman Empire

This is an interesting article appearing in Haaretz today, written by the former Mossad Chief,  Shabtai Shavit From the comment section: “The right simply believes that it will bring the nation to this dangerous, unnecessary brink deliberately—simply to force the US’ hand and bring it into war with the enemies it has stirred up. In so […]

Jesus’ Teaching About the Land

This is a very good essay presented by Robert L. Reymond at Knox Theological Seminary in 2006 on the topic of “Who Owns the Land”. (HT to Psalms115three blog). Below is only one section of this presentation, which I hope those who visit here will take time to read and study in it’s entirety. Jesus’ Teaching […]

The Covenant Promise and Reality

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By faith Abel brought God a […]

Down the Rabbit-Hole: sidenote

In the earlier post (Down the Rabbit-Hole I Go Again…) in which I expressed a small rant concerning Charisma magazine (a so-called “Christian publication) rejoicing over Judaism having a revival in Russia, I pointed out in one of my comments that we, the Church, should be concerned that so many Christians here in the west […]

George W. Bush to Do Fundraiser for Group That Seeks to Convert Jews To Christ

Next week, former President George W. Bush is scheduled to keynote a fundraiser in Irving, Texas, for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, a group that trains people in the United States, Israel, and around the world to convince Jews to accept Jesus as the Messiah. The organization’s goal: to “restore” Israel and the Jews and […]

Why do many Christians believe Jesus will only return after Jews rebuild the temple?

This morning I found myself catching up with our old pal John Hagee and reading a few details surrounding his recent Washington D.C. CUFI conference. In the past I use to post extensively on these yearly conferences but frankly my interest in them has waned over the years.  I mean, how many times does anyone […]

Oy Vey, Christian Soldiers: Protestants Borrowing from Jewish traditions

Many thanks to Steve for sharing the link to this interesting article which appeared in a recent New York Times. Oy Vey, Christian Soldiers Of all the surprises promised by the recent TLC reality show “The Sisterhood,” which followed the lives of five Atlanta preachers’ wives, the only one that truly amazed me was the Christian […]

John Hagee recommends putting Jewish kids into Jewish schools so they’ll never want to become Christians

Some things almost leave you speechless… From Following Judah’s Lion Hagee, a major Daystar supporter and on-air personality, has consistently affirmed that he will not proselytize Jews, although the network’s lineup also includes “messianic” Jews with long pro-conversion records. When Rabbi Bentzion Kravitz, head of the anti-cult Jews for Judaism, raised this issue with Hagee […]

Israel and Theology – Two Opposing Views

Earlier today I read two very opposite views concerning Israel and theology and thought someone else might find them interesting.  Our first article comes from Rev. Malcolm Hedding, of The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem:  Quote, In recent years a new form of Replacement Theology has arrived on the Christian scene called Fulfillment Theology. Like Replacement […]

Who are the Jewish People? ~ Is God gathering Jewish people back to the land?

An excellent three part teaching is up at  Messianic Good News, The question of “Who is a Jew?” remains a contentious and unresolved issue, relating as it does to the ‘Law of Return’ and the nature of the ‘Jewish State’ as well as to the question of whether Jewishness is necessarily connected with either the […]

The Great Divide between Church and Synagogue

The website, Messianic Good News, has many excellent teachings. I thought over the past two years I’d read them all, but came across one today which somehow I’d missed. In light of the continued growth of the Hebrew Roots Movement, its definitely one worth reading. In his introductory remarks to his scholarly work “The Jewish […]

The Christian’s Relationship to the Mosaic Law

A wonderful companion message to the one posted last evening, What were Gentile believers grafted into?. The Gentile Believer and the Law We have said that the experience of the ‘wretched man’ of Romans 7 is not the normal experience of a converted Gentile. It is, nevertheless, a sad fact that it may (and often […]

The Cult of the Sacred Name

The Threshing Floor’s Randy Maugans has a very good program up this evening: The Cult of the Sacred Name –  (direct audio here) A little background on the Sacred Name Movement: What is The Sacred Name Movement?

Daniel’s countdown from exile to Messiah

Excellent in depth teaching on the significance of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks from Messianic Good News: The second omer – Daniel’s countdown from exile to Messiah Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your holy city … Daniel 9: 24 In a previous article, Counting the omer – part 1, we considered the history […]

Prophecy Controversies..

This evening I was reading a post at Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion, which someone might find interesting. It concerns different prophecy views, even within the dispensationalist camp, on the end times and antichrist: Apocalyptic Christians Argue over Anti-Christ. This difference of opinion, within the same Eschatological camp, brought to mind an article I received recently […]

Hebrew roots or Christian roots?, plus…

Mariam posted an interesting news story at endtimespropheticwords:Dick Eastman Every Home for Christ To Build Wailing Wall Replica, which fit in nicely with an article I read last night written by Prof. Johan Malan, Middelburg South Africa: We Cannot be under Law and under Grace. In the past I’ve posted quite a few messages on […]

“Israeli Journalist Infiltrates Tiferet Yeshua Congregation”

You may recall a story I posted back on August 8th concerning an Israeli Journalist who, pretending to be a follower of Jesus (a Messianic Believer) infiltrated a Messianic congregation, gained their trust (and love), and turned around, writing a horribly twisted expose on the Church and the Messianic Believers who attend: Messianic Believers to […]

Dispensationalism Today, Yesterday and Tomorrow: Part (5)

I want to put up another essay by Grover Gunn on the topic of dispensationalism. Previous posts an be found here: Part (1) – Part (2) – Part (3) – Part (4) – Dispensationalism: Christian Zionism The dispensational system promotes Zionism among Christians, the conviction that physical Jews today have a Biblical right to possess the […]

Dispensationalism Today, Yesterday and Tomorrow: Part (2)

Continuing with the essay’s by Grover Gunn… Dispensationalism: Israel and the Church The consistent dispensationalist is a theologian in the grip of an idea — the idea that there is a strong dichotomy between Israel and the church. This idea is a relatively modern theory in the history of doctrine that was initially developed and […]

Dispensationalism Today, Yesterday and Tomorrow: Part (1)

Dispensationalism: Defining the Basic System Part of our church’s antiquated cooling system is a water tower that uses a float mechanism to regulate the water level. Unhappily, this exposed float presents an inviting diversion for children who happen by. A few of the men in the church have commented periodically for several years that we […]

Rooted and Grounded In Christ

Teaching Sound Doctrine & Glorifying Christ

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby

Lead Me

"Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully."

I Was a Teenage Dispensationalist

It's the end (of the end) of the world as we know it...
