Why Do We as Messianic Jews Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread?

Posted by MRbtz Yona on Sunday, April 10, 2016, In : Walking with Him 

Why Do We as Messianic Jews Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread? 

The simple answer to why Messianic Jews celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread is in Exodus 12. Verse 17 says, “You are to observe the festival of matzah, for on this very day I brought your divisions out of the land of Egypt. Therefore, you are to observe this day from generation to generation by a perpetual regulation.” 

Perpetual means enduring forever, everlasting. We therefore know this is not a temporary regula...

Singleness of Mind and Heart

Posted by Yona on Monday, September 24, 2012, In : Walking with Him 

How often do we do things “knowing” that it would please HASHEM, but in our hearts we have a double motive, one to please the Father and one that is self serving?

In our minds, we know that certain things please HASHEM. We often think of obedience.  But does that obedience flow from a well in the heart of pure love for HASHEM? Or does our heart seek its own reward? Our mind and heart should be in sync in action to wholly please and honor HASHEM. As we renew our minds to the mind of Yesh...

Childlike Faith

Posted by Yona on Thursday, August 18, 2011, In : Walking with Him 

When I was a little girl, I was told stories like:

“If you swallow a seed, a tree will grow in your stomach; and if you swallow gum, it will stay in your stomach for seven years.”

Silly stories? Perhaps.  

What about these stories?

“Put your tooth under your pillow and the tooth fairy will come to leave you some money.”

“You better go to sleep or Santa won’t bring you any toys.”

“Don’t go in that room or the boogie man is going to get you.”

We’ve all heard ...

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.
