Why do you believe in what is written in the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament)? This is a question that we may bump into when we speak to people that have not accepted Y’Shua as their Messiah. When asked to defend what you believe in, do you have the information at hand? Being prepared is half the battle. In this article we will help you get these facts ready. We will look at written proof of Jewish and Roman authors. We will also see what archeologists have found to show that Y’Shua did really exist as man on earth as recorded in the Gospels.
The truth of YHVH’s word is like fire, it purifies. It also burns, which may bring pain. Truth can bring pain when it exposes deception. I will rather face the pain truth brings now, than to face the wrath of YHVH’s judgment which is a consuming fire. YHVH’s word is also like balm, it will bring healing. This article may bring pain, for most of us will have to repent of this deception, but it will also bring healing, bringing us closer to YHVH. May YHVH open your heart and eyes to His truth and guide you with His Spirit.
We just returned from celebrating the feast of Sukkot in Jerusalem. As usual it was glorious to be in the place YHVH chose to put His Name for this appointed time. Every encounter we had, whether planned or not, positive or negative, was meaningful and contributed to making our time in Jerusalem special. Let us share some of this wonderful experience with your via our annual picture report.
When we consider the world, we may be led to mistakenly believe that we can sin with impunity. However, sin without consequence does not exist. It may appear that ungodly people prosper more than the godly. They seem to be blessed in all areas of their lives, but if you look deeper, you will often find emptiness, heartache and depression. Sadly, this doesn’t seem to be unique to unbelievers, we find the same pain amongst believers. This pain in both groups is eased with obsessions or addictions: work, ministry, prescription drugs, alcohol, co-dependent relationships, sex or thrills.
We said that sin without punishment does not exist, but we don’t always see this punishment. How are we to understand this?
