The Secret mission of Y’Shua
When we speak of Y’Shua being the Messiah, we have a clear view of what that implies. We understand the significance of what He did for us when He offered His life for us. When we look into the details of the ministry of Y’Shua as recorded in Scripture, we see that almost nobody knew the real mission of Y’Shua on earth. When we read about the ministry of Y’Shua, a number of things become a lot more interesting once our eyes have been opened to the spiritual dimension. Let us see what Y’Shua mission on earth included.
Tefillin – To use or not to use?
After our previous article on prayer, we have done some study on the traditions and customs that surround prayer. One of the topics that have come up in our discussions about prayer, is the use of tefillin or phylacteries. People wonder if the Jewish interpretation of Scripture is valid. Should we interpret the verses literally as they do? Should we also be using these black boxes when we pray? Or, did the church fathers get it right when they said this is not to be taken literally? We investigate what Scripture really says to see if we can come to a conclusion.
What did Nicodemus really hear?
In the Gospel of John we have a recording of a conversation that took place between Y’Shua and a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus. This is a very profound discussion that can only be appreciated by understanding the context of the questions and answers. In order to understand any message clearly we also need to understand the sender and the receiver of the message. To appreciate the answers that Y’Shua gives Nicodemus, we must think like Nicodemus would have thought. With this study we will show you the longevity of this message by analyzing the perceptions of the sender and receiver of the message. You will come to see that the answer given to Nicodemus reveals the Messiah to us and also tells us how to ensure that we will see the Kingdom of YHVH.
Y’shua in Prophecy – Part 2 -The Sign of Jonah
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.
