Are YOU ready to pass the Smell test?

Recently, a Jewish young man had a near death experience during which he reports seeing and learning many things.  I’ll find a link to the extended interview to post below, but here is a neat short clip used by Ahavat Ammi to make the point that the Messiah will judge by smell…  a concept largely foreign to Christendom.

Watch this 3 minute clip, then check out the below linked article from a couple years ago that explains how this is a very real possibility in how the Messiah judges people.  Very interesting.

It is fascinating to see from the long version of this young man’s interview that he has literally no Scriptural background, yet he accurately portrays the two witnesses, the Mount splitting in two, the Mashiach being recognized by all, Him being sinless, etc, etc….

More interestingly, he says the Mashiach judges Continue reading “Are YOU ready to pass the Smell test?”

Beulah Land, Some Thoughts

The song keeps running through my head and is a beautiful lilting melody.

In our family Bible reading this morning we were discussing a passage that touches on the whole weather issue…  In fact, daily, the weather that we concern ourselves with should serve as a continual reminder Continue reading “Local weather calling for snow… Again!!”

How to inherit eternal life, according to Yeshua…

A man once asked Yeshua what he needed to do to inherit eternal life.  That is a question asked today by those who recognize the longing in their souls.  Yeshua’s answer was a little different than what you will hear in most churches…  Should give us something to chew on!

Here is how Luke records the exchange,

25 And a [a]lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 And He said to him, Continue reading “How to inherit eternal life, according to Yeshua…”
