  • Knock and Talk - April 24, 2017 “People don’t want to listen today”, one Jewish gentleman told us in his driveway. We mentioned that both Hosea and Isaiah spoke of God lamenting that His people were perishing for lack of knowledge and their rejection of knowledge. (Hos. 4:6; Is. 5:13) We confiden... [read more]
  • What is the major difference between the feasts mentioned in Column 1 and Column 2? If you answered that Column 1’s feasts take place in the Spring, while Column 2’s feasts take place in the Fall you would be correct. But there is something else! If you have figured out that Column 1’s fea... [read more]
  • You probably know more Scripture than many of your Jewish friends. Unfortunately, many Jewish people do not take the time to read the Bible, but insist that knowledge of hand-me-down traditions serves to satisfy a meaningful relationship with God. We want to encourage you to share your faith with yo... [read more]
  • Jewish people all over the world are getting ready for Passover. Some just buy unleavened bread or matzah, but others spend weeks on end scouring every corner of their entire home for crumbs of leavening. They have zeal, but most are without knowledge of the true Passover Lamb, Yeshua, Who is the fu... [read more]
  • Teach us to number our days O Lord, for (with the exception of the Rapture) we will, like our fathers and mothers before us, knock on death’s door, at Your appointed time. As we pass through that door and into eternity, may the joy of Your presence Lord, complete our earthly journey with the preciou... [read more]
  • Henrietta did not want to be the sacrifice for the soup (please see below). That would be a recipe for disaster. We would all be better off remembering that one. Rather than be a sacrifice, we need to have the ultimate sacrifice, the Messiah, as so clearly stated in Isaiah 53. Let’s remember that... [read more]
  • The Feast of Purim The story of Purim is found in the Book of Esther, neatly tucked away between Nehemiah and Job. Purim celebrates the courage and faith displayed by Mordecai (from the tribe of Benjamin) and Queen Esther (they were cousins). It recognizes God’s continued faithfulness and promise o... [read more]
  • This past week, there were at least 10 JCC’s (Jewish Community Centers) across the US which were a target for bomb threats. Buffalo NY’s JCC was one of those targeted (see below). While the world rears its evil through the likes of scare tactics, hate and violence, we look to another source to calm ... [read more]
  • Jewish people love a good bowl of chicken soup, smoked meat and bagels. Jews also love Chinese food. When Christmas Eve comes, Jews need to have a place to eat and the Chinese restaurants are opened! It’s quite an enigma because Jews and Chinese people share so little in common politically, geog...

  • Sometimes when we go out door to door, people ask us why we do what we do, especially when it’s cold outside. But it’s not about us and what we do. So we point our answers to Yeshua because it’s all about what He did. It is Yeshua Who has the right of way, having privilege and eternal seniority, alw... [read more]
  • The Bible not only has a last word in it, which is “amen” but it has the last word over all things. As we went door to door we were again three members forming the team with one of our sisters in the car praying and providing us with physical shelter from the cold. It was a particularly windy...

  • In French, the word for scale is “balance”. Our responsibility as believers is to balance our Christian walk to such a degree that the scale tips in favor of righteousness. The glory of God is a weighty matter indeed (that is actually a root meaning for the word glory (Hebrew= Kavod = weighty or awe... [read more]
