Y’shua in Prophecy – Part 2 -The Sign of Jonah

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Messiah

Do you know the full extent of what is meant by the sign of Jonah?

When Y’shua was asked for a sign by the Pharisees, He said that no sign shall be given them except the sign of Jonah. We have always believed that the sign of Jonah is only referring to the time Y’shua would be in the earth after His death, three days and three nights. This is an important part; however, we have learned that there is so much more to the sign of Jonah.

We shall start off by sharing the scriptures that refer to the sign of Jonah and then go to the book of Jonah to share with you why we say there is more to this.

How should we pray?

We have discussed the basic of way we should pray and what prayer can achieve in our lives. Now we will focus a bit more on the act of praying. We will investigate what the Scriptures say about things like attitude, frequency and posture. Hopefully, this will provide us with an even more holistic view of prayer.

Bible ready for some Bible Study

In our continuing investigation into sound Bible study, we now get to the level of interpretation of phrases and/or verses of the Bible. We investigate what is needed to be able to move from the original context to our current context in a sound way. At the same time we need to understand some of the history of interpretation to be able to fully comprehend what the authors of the Apostolic Scriptures are trying to explain to us. How did Y’Shua use these techniques in His teachings? How is it different from the techniques that Paul, the Pharisee, used in his writings. Come test your skills in identifying these techniques!

Have we become the modern-day Pharisees?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness, Unleavened Bread

Have we become like the Pharisees in the time of Y’shua? Have you noticed how critical and judgmental we have become? There seems to be a tendency among believers to judge. To judge others for their different interpretation of scripture, for their use of certain words or for their use or pronunciation of the name of our Creator. People, where is this going? Should we not be spending this time in a more productive way? Do we not all have one Father?
