Thank You for Your Support of Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics!

23 April, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

We need you to get behind the efforts of Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics! Much of what we do is provided freely via our two main websites (Outreach Israel and Messianic Apologetics), often in the form of weekly articles and teachings, both written and oral. Messianic Apologetics, in particular, is active on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and most especially YouTube and Podomatic. This Spring, we have just added our new Messianic Apologetics app for iPhone and Android. Please be a blessing to us so that we can continue to provide you with consistent, uplifting, and scholastically sound […]

April 2017 Editor’s Update

11 April, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: The month of March has been an important transitionary period for myself, particularly as I have closed off one significant season of my ministry, and I look forward to a new season of ministry. While I always stay very busy—and as one with the INTJ personality type, I am thinking about all kinds of things—I have been recently taking some very keen direction from passages like Acts 16:7: “after they came to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Yeshua did not permit them.” Figures like the Apostle Paul, who had limited time […]

March 2017 Editor’s Update

6 March, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: I believe that this past month has inaugurated a significantly important season of ministry for Outreach Israel and Messianic Apologetics. The biggest development of February was the launch of the Messianic Apologetics app for Android. Be praying that the iPhone and iPad version will be available sometime this month, as there are certain approvals which have to be issued. (As an iPhone user, no one wants this more than me!) The Messianic Apologetics app—and with it the ability to send push notifications—has already helped see our website hits go up between 400-500% per day. Of course, this also […]

February 2017 Editor’s Update

7 February, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: 2017 is going to be a very busy and active year for the expansion and growth of Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics. We have started this year with the release of the new commentary 2 Corinthians for the Practical Messianic. Later this Spring will see the first release of Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity, focusing on the Gospels and Acts. This will follow later in the year with the second release in this series, focusing on the General Epistles, Pauline Epistles, and the Later New Testament. This is a resource we […]

January 2017 Editor’s Update

10 January, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: In the days leading up to the close of 2016, I was diligently seeking and entreating the Lord for an answer about how I was to proceed in 2017—and particularly proceed with the newfound time that has been granted to us as Messianic people, via the results of the U.S. presidential election. The answer that I received to my prayers was very clear, but for me personally, also was quite heavy: You need to approach ministry as philanthropy, and you need to live your life as one giant tithe. One of the direct words of Yeshua to His […]

Follow J.K. McKee on Social Media

3 January, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

2017 is going to be a massive year for Outreach Israel Ministries and Messianic Apologetics employing social media. Between our two websites, we have over 700 articles, FAQ entries, and newsletters at our disposal–which can indeed be featured, as we encounter various issues needing to be addressed “out there” in the online Messianic world of ideas. Be sure that you are following us in at least one of the following venues:

December 2016 Editor’s Update

13 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: If you are like me, then the month of November was not the month that you expected it to be! The results of the U.S. Presidential Election were a signal to me, that we got the “line extension” of time that we need. Our religious freedoms and the ability for us to speak our minds, will remain in tact, for the foreseeable future. We will have to learn how to interact more in a pluralistic environment of ideas for sure, but people of faith—in the United States at least—do not have to take a low profile just yet. […]

November 2016 Editor’s Update

7 November, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: I am purposefully writing this update on November 7, one day before the U.S. presidential election—which regardless of the outcome, will be dominating many of our thoughts for the remainder of the month. We are, without question, at a critical juncture in Western civilization. How the United States of America goes, does determine how much of the world goes. I have believed that the election of one of the two candidates for president, would only give Believers in the United States a line extension of time, to make full use of their religious freedoms. We would not see […]

September 2016 Editor’s Update

20 September, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: The bulk of my attention this past month has been in processing how I wish to proceed forward in our ministry’s new social media strategy. Our new WordPress based websites give us a huge amount of technical capability that we did not previously possess. The importance of online outreach via tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube must be taken advantage of, for as much and as long as such tools can be readily employed! Few realize this, but I have written so much in the past twelve years—articles, FAQ entries, books, commentaries—that if all of this […]

Israel in Future Prophecy: Afterward

6 September, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Most likely, if you have been diligently reading Israel in Future Prophecy, it is fair to say that you are a non-Jewish Messianic Believer who has been curious as to what my perspective is regarding the whole “Two-House” controversy—or you might be a Messianic Jewish Believer who knows that our broad faith community needs some resolution to this issue, as time proceeds forward, and as theological and spiritual challenges of much more major substance and importance present themselves (i.e., debates over the Divinity of Yeshua and His Messiahship). There have been a number of sensational and hype-laden books circulate throughout […]

A Redeployment

31 August, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends, Over the past two weeks, I have been very pleased to see the direction that the new Messianic Apologetics website has taken! Transitioning over to a new WordPress format has been very helpful in seeing not just new people introduced to our ministry–as we are in the ongoing process of transferring articles and FAQ entries over from the old website–but also in seeing this new website integrated into social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. As important as I know it is going to be in getting the written materials reposted to this new website over […]

August 2016 Editor’s Update

18 August, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: This past month, as a part of our ongoing OIM Technology Fund, I got a new computer. It took me around two long afternoons on a Thursday and Friday to install software and transfer files from my old station to this new station. During our morning Shabbat service following, I sat down during the worship, and got an impression that later in the weekend I needed to look into significantly upgrading the Messianic Apologetics website. While the previous website was easy to navigate, the basic design was over ten years old, and not always compatible with mobile devices. […]

July 2016 Editor’s Update

24 July, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Dear Friends: The past month has been unbelievably busy, tiring, and exhausting—and on top of it all I got a nasty sinus infection. But, this past month, with a noticeable change in our routine, was very important for both myself and our ministry. Those of you who follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are likely to have been aware of the many things that I was involved with from mid-June to mid-July. The biggest thing that occurred in July is that our ministry, Outreach Israel and Messianic Apologetics, exhibited our books and resources at Messiah 2016 in Grantham, PA. We […]

A New Website

24 July, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

A few of you may have noticed a number of the changes taking place on my Messianic Apologetics website (www.messianicapologetics.net). I am presently in the middle of transitioning over to a WordPress format, which will make the site much more compatible with mobile devices and more integrated into social media. Please bear with me as I learn to use this software over the next several weeks. Updates will be made periodically, as I sort out how to utilize the different menus and features. In the meantime, the old website is still accessible at the following address: www.messianicapologetics.net/old

Transitioning Into the New Website

24 July, 2016 J.K. McKee 2

The (old) Messianic Apologetics website is a massive depository of information. If I counted things up correctly, there are 170 Article listings, 244 FAQ entries, and 66 different books and publications available for purchase. Give or take a few in the miscount, no matter how you look at it–that is massive! Many of these resources are available as downloadable PDF files for Adobe Acrobat. Notwithstanding updating a few of these files, and changing around some of the fonts and spacing, it should be pretty straightforward in posting PDF links to these hundreds of documents. But I have decided to do something […]
