Who Am I?
When we become believers, we become children of YHVH. He is our Father who loves us unconditionally and wants the best for us. If we did not have an earthly father who modelled this love for us, or failed us in any way, we may not be able to fully comprehend this love the Father has for us. It is human nature to equate our perception of our earthly father with whom we think YHVH is. The reality is that our earthly fathers will fail us and this will give us a flawed perception of who YHVH is. If your father didn’t protect you, you will have difficulty is trusting YHVH for protection. If your father always criticized you, you will see YHVH as a Father looking for faults in you. This brokenness robs us of the blessing of our Father’s love and makes it difficult or impossible for us to have a relationship with Him built on absolute trust. We need to study the word and find our true identity in Y’shua.
Know thy enemy!
We need to know our enemy if we want to succeed in battle. As we know, our battle is not against flesh and blood. We need to know who these powers of darkness are that we need to struggle with. What does the Scriptures teach us about the adversary? Do we think about the adversary only with our Western mindset or do we really acknowledge what the Scriptures teach us? He is real and we need to know how he operates if we want to overcome his system.
A response to comments about the heresy of the Enoch calendar
We have received a number of response to our previous article about the herecy of the Enoch calendar. These responses try to defend the canonicity of the book of Enoch or they question the validity of the priesthood in Jerusalem. Here we would like to present to your our further investigation into these points.
Evangelize as Y’Shua did
We often meet people who are convinced of their truth and are willing to share this with everybody willing to listen. If these people sense any disagreement, it can usually lead to long and heated debate. When you go on the internet onto social sites like Facebook, you find the exact same pattern. In the Scriptures we find some good examples of how we should be acting. What can Y’Shua teach us in His encounter with the Samaritan woman?
When is First Fruits and how to count the Omer
This day also marks the beginning of the counting of the Omer which leads to the next feast, the feast of weeks, 50 days later. The purpose of this article is to go into some more detail regarding this day, especially when it is to take place. There is some disagreement on this among believers. Some say that we are to celebrate the feast of First fruits on the day after the first day of unleavened bread, like Judah does. Others, like ourselves interpret the instructions to celebrate this day on the day after the weekly Sabbath. So, what are we to do? Which interpretation is correct?
The Last Supper was not a Passover seder
Every year before and during Passover, we are confronted with the same questions. One of these questions is: was the last meal Y’shua had with His disciples a Pesach seder? There are many passages in Scripture that seem contradictory, especially on this topic, but we believe that these seeming contradictions are because of our lack of understanding. We believe that all Scripture is inspired by YHVH’s Ruach (Spirit). There are minor scribal and translation errors in Scripture, but apart from these, the message remains the same. We will show you evidence from the Scripture, regarding the last meal Y’shua had with His disciples. We will also look at the instructions regarding these days and how Y’shua fulfilled the feast of Passover. All this is important in order for us to understand why His last meal could not have been a Passover seder.
