I teach a weekly Shabbat service online in addition to posts I write for different outlets, including this one. From my Shabbat group as well as news broadcasts and online articles, the Wuhan virus, aka COVID-19, as a pestilence is troubling a great many people, and some, to our sorrow, have died. Some are looking to the heavens and expecting a rapture because of this pestilence. I do not believe, nor teach, that the rapture will happen anytime before Yeshua physically returns. We have to go through the refining process here on earth with all our peoples, all Israel and the many Gentile nations. As part of the refining process, Yeshua is going to destroy human governments that are opposed to Him and His rule. He with, and through, the Holy Spirit, is preparing a people ready for him. That includes being ready to be ruled by the terms of the Mosaic Covenant made at Mount Sinai, and reaffirmed several times since, and made into a New Covenant in our hearts. Let’s consider part of the dream given to Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, and interpreted by Daniel, servant of YHVH.Continue reading “The Smashing Rock and COVID-19”

Others gathered around, wondering what the hubbub was, and it turned into a wonderful impromptu lesson for all who had lingered.Continue reading “Restoring kol Israel: How we ‘disable’ our children”
There has been an abundance of media coverage concerning the upcoming eclipse, so I do not want to rehash the blah, blah, blah. Rather, I would like to share two links I found very interesting and then offer a possible scenario that may currently be unfolding…
In the past I have shared a few things from Dr. Dale Sides, a Christian astronomer, who has a very interesting perspective on things in the heavens. The following teaching concerning the eclipse is a MUST SEE as he shares a few significant points nobody else is talking about. After hearing this, I agree with him that the eclipse is meant to point to something else… namely, the events in the heavens at the point of totality. Everyone will watch the eclipse, I will be watching the show behind the eclipse when the lights get dimmed…
The second video I would like to share is from an interesting source that studies Continue reading “Does the coming eclipse portent radical change?”
Here is a YouVersion image from good friend, Steve King. How do the Scriptures define ‘saint?’ You may have the testimony of Yeshua, but do you keep the commandments of God?
Malachi 4 says the generation in the days of Elijah will keep the Law of Moses… EVEN the statutes and ordinances!!
Got Torah? Might be a good time to investigate…
