John 14:23-29: Yeshua’s Peace in Troublous Times

Spring has begun! A new season, bringing warmth. We have a new situation in the world now with the break-out of the Corona Virus. We need to come up with a new way of gathering together when the government is telling us that we are not able to. Praise God for the possibilities of virtual congregational services in such an unusual time, looking forward to the time that we can again physically come together.

Is Hebrew The Mother of All Languages?

There was once one language spoken by people, the language spoken by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  This one language continued to be the only language until God judged humanity at the Tower of Babel, and confused the languages.  Is there a common root to them all, back to Eden?  Biblical Hebrew is the language which YHVH God used to make Himself known through the Old Testament.

Abraham’s Well

A recent tour by Japanese Christians generated an article in the Jerusalem Post about the Beer Sheva Abraham’s Well International Visitor Center, just a 5-minute walk from Nachalat Yeshua (Yeshua’s Inheritance) Congregation, which is located on The Fathers Street (HaAvot St) in the Old City.

The well located at Tel Beer Sheva is deeper, and perhaps older than the well at the center.

Beer Sheva Wells Become a Lake

Very surprising news about the desert city of Beer Sheva: a new lake, 2nd largest in Israel (after the Kinneret/Sea of Galilee) and the largest artificial lake in Israel, was inaugurated a few days ago during the holiday period of Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles.  The ancient wells which our fathers Abraham and Isaac dug and re-dug to give water to drink in Beer Sheva — even down to WW1 — have been transformed into recreational lakes and pools.  Israel is a world leader in reclaiming waste water for agriculture and commercial uses. The lake is a major part of the development of the Beer Sheva River Park. 
 
 

Racism in Most of Us – 7 Aug 2019

As I wrote in my July 1 prayer/newsletter, prophecies and current events are coming together in view on the not-so-distant horizon — something like the little cloud that Elijah the Prophet saw as the Lord promised long-awaited rain.  I fear, though, that the pride of America — and of Israel — will cause them to be caught off-guard when real trouble comes.  It will be a sudden and unexpected reality check.  I wrote that, for me, it is both exciting and frightening:  in the Spirit, exciting; in the flesh, frightening.  Thank God for His love and grace through our faith and hope in who Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is, and for what He has accomplished by His death on the cross and resurrection!

That same day, July 1, an 18 yr-old Ethiopian boy was killed by an off-duty policeman in the Haifa area during a street fight.  Continue reading “Racism in Most of Us – 7 Aug 2019”

Once Upon A Time in Beer Sheva

Call it what you will – Be’er Sheva, Beersheva, Beersheba, Birüsseb, or Bir Seb’a – it is the “Capital of the Negev.”

Beersheva is the largest city in the Negev desert, the center of the fourth most populous metropolitan area in Israel and the eighth most populous Israeli city, boasting a world-class university, hospital and cyber research center of international repute.

You can read the full and interesting article here about the early years of the city during the formation of the modern State of Israel:
