Determining a Sabbath Rest

main image

Why does scripture say to not go out of our place on the Sabbath? Exodus 16:29See! The Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Remain each of you in his place; let no one go out of his place on the seventh day.” Some have interpreted this particular scripture to mean that one is not to leave their dwelling place on the Sabbath. The important word here in English is “place.” In Hebrew, the word for “place&rdquo...

God’s Authority vs the Husband’s Authority

As more and more people come to an understanding that the Torah still applies today, friction is not uncommon, even within the same household.  A bigger question sometimes comes up, one about authority, headcoverings, etc.  What happens if a husband and wife have different understandings regarding this topic?  Should they get divorced? The short answer is “No”, they should not get a divorce.  When it comes to authority, the Word of God is the ultimate...

Running to the Wrong Goal

It was October 25, 1964, and the Minnesota Vikings were playing against the San Francisco 49ers; the 49ers have just fumbled the ball, it’s up for grabs.  Defensive End Jim Marshall scoops up the ball and takes it 66 yards into the endzone...his own.  This moment is remembered in sports history as “The Wrong Way Run”, where one man took the ball into the wrong endzone, celebrated by spiking the football causing it to roll out of bounds and scored 2 points for his...

Matthew 11:11 - How is the Least Greater than the Greatest?

August 14, 2014 A question common to Matthew 11 is that of what Yeshua meant in verse 11. Matthew 11:11 Verily I say to you, Among those born of women, there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptizer: yet the small one in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he.   On the surface it appears Yeshua is saying John the Baptist is next to nothing in the kingdom of heaven.  Yet this seems to contradict the context of previous passages where Yeshua is identifying John the...

Yeshua: God with us, the Everlasting Father and a Mighty God

Yeshua was given many names in the bible, not the least of which were Emmanuel, Everlasting (or Eternal) Father, and Mighty God.  Was He all of these things?  How could He be both the man Yeshua and the Everlasting Father, Mighty God?  By delving deeper into the Scripture we find He was all of those, but maybe not the way it is commonly understood. How is Yeshua, “God with us”?Emmanuel, also spelled Immanuel, is a name given to the Messiah in Isaiah 7:14, meaning...

What is the "Fear of God"? Part 1

Proverbs 1:7 7 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge;   Proverbs 9:10 10 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.   These are not idle words, nor merely a good idea, but instead a promise.  If we fear our Creator, we will begin to gain knowledge and wisdom, and then comes understanding of who He is and of His Word; but, what does it mean to “fear Yahweh”?  What is the...

Ever wonder what scriptures mention oils or anointing oils? Here you go! James 5:14 - Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: Mark 6:13 - And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed [them]. Exodus 30:31-33 - And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your...

Is Our Copy Really The Word Of God?

The Proper Cure for the Disease John Warwick Montgomery tells us a parable: A great king (God) had a son (mankind) who had grown up out of contact with his father. While journeying in a distant province the son fell seriously ill. The doctor accompanying him (reason) was incapable of treating the disease, but the king, learning of his son's plight, sent instructions (the gospel) for the healing of the boy. However, the king's numerous enemies also discovered what had happened, and...

Good Friday is a Myth

Jesus Died On A Wednesday!! by Roy A. Reinhold I was quite blown away recently to hear Hal Lindsey state on his national radio program that he has come to believe that the scriptures show a Wednesday crucifixion. Perhaps you ought to examine the evidence and decide for yourself; be like the Bereans who were complimented in scriptures for examining the teaching of Paul in light of the scriptures to see if it was so. There is clear, concrete evidence in the scriptures for a Wednesday...

"Good Eye" vs. "Bad Eye"

The Jewish idiom of the "good eye" refers to loving and taking care of your neighbor, while the idiom of the "bad eye" refers to being selfish and not loving your neighbor. This can be seen in the words of Yeshua: Quote: MATTHEW 6:19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 "but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 "For...

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness?

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness? Are you that sure that Paul teaches that God has abolished or changed His law? Do you attempt to discern what law (instruction) Paul is teaching on in context? Do you realize how many "laws" Paul mentions in his letters? Here are some "laws" Paul specifically mentions: "Law of God" "Law of Sin" "Law of Sin and Death" "Law of Faith" "Law of my mind" "Law of Righteousness" "Law of Christ" Have you ever wondered why Peter says Paul is...
