The House

To Be A Child Of G-d's Kingdom

Posted by MMin Yona on Saturday, April 20, 2013, In : Preach it: Teach it 

To be a child of G-d’s Kingdom is a concept set apart from any manmade religion.

It doesn’t matter if your parents are Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, or any other religion or non-religion. It doesn’t matter if your grandpa is a rabbi, your dad is a pastor, your uncle is a priest, or Mother Theresa is your distant cousin. It doesn’t matter if you live in Jerusalem, visit Israel, or bathe in holy water.  

You can jump pews, roll on the floor, read liturgy, or say p...

Envy and Jealousy in the Fold

Posted by Yona on Friday, January 18, 2013, In : Preach it: Teach it 

Imagine a family with several children and they are competitive amongst one another. They may be jealous for their parents’ affection or approval. Each child tries to outdo the other in some skill or behavior, and in the process, they almost always become critical, sometimes even physical with one another. This sense of competition can be seen in young children but also in grown adults.

Maybe the younger sibling wants the position of the older, “privileged sibling,” or the older chi...

Let Those Who Have Ears to Hear Boldly Exhort the Truth

Posted by Yona on Sunday, September 2, 2012, In : Preach it: Teach it 

The L-rd woke me up in the middle of Hurricane Isaac, about 3 AM. He told me to write down this message. Those who know me well know that I tend to give a Word in a most gentle way; however, this message came with a firm call to warn. If I may take the liberty in saying so, this message is not coming from the Lamb; this is from the Lion.

The L-rd says Repent and Turn from your wicked ways. Come out from the pagan practices of the world.  It doesn’t get any more direct than that. The L-r...

A Call to Come Back Home

Posted by Yona on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, In : Preach it: Teach it 

We all experience difficult seasons in our lives. We wrestle with bumps in the road and we usually bounce back in our spiritual walk. There are, however, those exceptional earth-shattering moments that bring us down to the lowest point we have ever been in our spiritual journey. In such a season, the hurt is so intense that we may not even recognize ourselves in G-d’s plan.  The feeling of disappointment or abandonment can cut so deep, it can actually have the effect of amputating our conne...

Assembly of Sheep

Posted by Yona on Thursday, June 21, 2012, In : Preach it: Teach it 

Do you know who’s sitting next to you?

You claim to be my own.

You say you exercise my character,

Yet there are many things unknown.


You speak of sin like it can’t touch you

Because you’ve stayed straight and narrow.

Perhaps you’ve lived quite sheltered,

Shielded from the enemy’s arrow.


Or maybe a fire you have been through,

And on your pedestal you have forgotten.

Pride has obscured the road,

Upon which, you were once trottin’.


Sure you are blessed to ...

If I boast about anything, it will be about my Abba, the Creator of the Universe, the Creator of me, the One and Only true G-d.

The L-rd drew me unto Himself as a young girl. My introduction to the L-rd, prayer, and His Scriptures was through the women in my family.

He filled me with His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) at the age of fifteen and has walked with me, teaching me ever since.

His ministry in me has been to use the many gifts He has freely given in order to testify of Him.

His gifts have been plenty, from equipment to do the task at hand to experiences of trials and joys. All that He gives is a gift, treasures of learning, growing, and drawing close to Him.

For me, the greatest of these gifts is to know Him intimately. Without Him, I am powerless against my enemies and fruitless for His kingdom. I am nothing apart from Him.

Through my acceptance of Messiah Yeshua's atonement, I received cleansing of my sins and a place in His Kingdom.

It is because of the Almighty's Chesed, mercy and loving kindness, to me that I am able to testify of Him, share the good news, and pour out His Chesed into my neighbor.

And so I boast about Him, because it IS all about my Abba and the salvation given through His Son.
