Why ISIS? Why Now?

I think most people understand that radical Islam is pretty p.o.’d at America. Over 30 years ago I tried to explain to my father, a WWII veteran, why the rest of the world called us “The Great Satan” but he could not understand it. But, here is the truth of the situation; America has always manufactured the next threat to “freedom” in America and for that matter the rest of the world. Continue reading

The Sabbatical Year Garden

I realize that there are some of you that are tired of hearing about the sabbatical year. Too bad! I love it. By my reckoning I am now in the 20th day of the 3rd month of the sabbatical year of the 3rd sabbatical cycle of the 119th Jubilee cycle. ((Yes, I know there are varying opinions on this but I did the math.) So, if we are in a sabbatical year what kind of garden do I have? To answer that: one that grows on its own. A garden without planting, fertilizing, cultivation, etc. Everything in it volunteered from last year’s produce. {Lev. 25:18-19} You can eat what grows of itself or on its own but you do not harvest. You take just enough for your daily needs. Continue reading

It Really is This Simple.

((Please read this in its entirety and then all of you tell me what it is about. What verse, chapter, book or part of the Bible that is referred to by this very simple play. I apologize for its simplicity but I hope that you enjoy it.))

Narrator: Mr. ben-Abraham is a successful farmer in Israel and has 3 sons and only one daughter, Dinah. In the nearby village lives Mr. ben-David, who is a respected merchant. Mr. ben-David has only one son remaining at home, Yeshayahu (Joshua). Joshua is two years older than Dinah but has been in love with her from afar for more than just a few years. Oftentimes, when Dinah and her mother and aunts come to town Joshua would step out into the street from his father’s shop to greet the ladies as they walked past and inquire whether or not they needed anything or any help with their bundles and packages. Now, Joshua goes to his father and presents his proposal for a marriage. Continue reading

Prepping for the Sabbatical Year: As if you needed one more reason to prep.

(((I want to dedicate this article to Brandon, Shellie, Kathy, Philip and Nadia who have asked great questions about preparing for the Sabbatical Year. Also, I dedicate it to my little sister in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Sandra, whose efforts and excitement in preparing for the coming sabbatical year border on “awesome”.))) Continue reading

The Covenant Made With Many…It Is Not What You were Taught or Thought!

Most people in the Western world are not familiar with the idea of a covenant. There are several types of covenants but the two most common in the area now encompassing the Middle East are the salt and blood covenants. Salt is an acceptable substitute for blood and is therefore considered by many to be one in the same as a blood covenant. We see that the powerful covenant made with King David , forever, was made by means of a covenant of salt (2 Chronicles 13:5) Continue reading
