Terumah Contribution “The Heart of the Matter” Exodus 25:1-27:19 1 Kings 5:26-6:13 by Mark Huey mark@outreachisrael.net This week’s Torah portion, Terumah, details the construction of the Tabernacle which the glory of God occupied during the Ancient Israelites’ journey through the wilderness. This temporary dwelling place was used by Israel until the First Temple was constructed in Jerusalem by King Solomon. As you read through the details of the Tabernacle’s materials and its construction, you can marvel at the minute particulars that come forth from the instructions of the Master Builder. The finest natural materials are utilized, which are all thought […]

The Dangers of Pre-Tribulationism

24 February, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

The pre-tribulation rapture is an extremely popular doctrine, which advocates that Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) can unexpectedly come at any moment for the saints, gathering them into Heaven before the Tribulation period or Seventieth Week of Israel. Pre-tribulationism has sold many books, spawned numerous fiction series and movies, and has created a large financial market for prophecy materials. But in spite of its popularity in much of today’s evangelical Christianity, few question it. When presented with alternative points of view such as post-tribulationism, adherents of the popular pre-tribulational position can sometimes take strong offense, and they can be found […]

This entry has been reproduced from the forthcoming book Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity “A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’ The LORD will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, ‘Rule in the midst of Your enemies.’ Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; in holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew. The LORD has sworn and will not change His […]

The Message of James

21 February, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from James for the Practical Messianic a summary for Messianic teaching and preaching Much of today’s Messianic movement places a high value on the Epistle of James and its message for Believers.[1] In a Christian world that has lost much of its moral compass, an emphasis on practical holiness, and a realization that good works are required of God’s people—James offers an antidote to counter much contemporary complacency. To the brother of Yeshua, faith in God is not just about some kind of mental ascent or speaking written creeds; it is about performing the actions which are reflective of […]

This entry has been reproduced from the forthcoming book Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity “Now Moses was pasturing the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. The angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed. So Moses said, ‘I must turn aside now and see this […]

OIM Update February 2017 As noted in last month’s update, the change in direction of the government of the United States was a Godsend of magnanimous proportions! In many regards it could have been, according to a variety of righteous servants of the Most High, a direct result of God’s children crying out for mercy, and then protection, for the inauguration of the new executive administration. Whatever it was, for those old enough to bear witness to the persistent political pendulum swings of the American culture, there is one undeniable conclusion: the population of this 240-year old democratic republic is […]

The Message of Ephesians

19 February, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from Ephesians for the Practical Messianic a summary for Messianic teaching and preaching The Epistle of Ephesians is often one of the most appreciated letters of the Apostolic Scriptures for today’s Messianic community, even though there are probably various themes and issues seen within Ephesians which have not been explored thoroughly enough.[1] Whether one is a part of a Messianic Jewish or some kind of independent Messianic congregation, you have heard references to the Commonwealth of Israel (2:11-12) and Jewish and non-Jewish Believers being fellow heirs and citizens with one another (3:6). You have heard about some kind of […]

Mishpatim Rulings “Rules Unto Others” Exodus 21:1-24:18 Jeremiah 34:8-22; 33:25-26 by Mark Huey mark@outreachisrael.net As we turn to Mishpatim this week, we are reminded that the Israelites have just received the Ten Commandments and have heard the terrifying voice of the Lord as He shook Mount Sinai. We recall that the Israelites were so frightened by the sound of God’s voice, that they requested that Moses be their exclusive intermediary to receive the further instructions about how to conduct their lives. As they trembled at a distance, the fear was so great that they thought they would die if they […]

This entry has been reproduced from the forthcoming book Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity “The Jews answered and said to Him, ‘Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?’ Yeshua answered, ‘I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. But I do not seek My glory; there is One who seeks and judges. Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death.’ The Jews said to Him, ‘Now we know that You have a […]

Hebrews

14 February, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

The Epistle to the Hebrews is one of the most overlooked texts in the entire Bible, and is greatly unappreciated by many in today’s Christianity, as well as the Messianic movement. A profoundly spiritual and intellectual masterpiece, the theme of this treatise is undeniably Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ), and His supremacy over all. The author engages his audience by describing Yeshua as the Creator, being superior to angels, Moses, Joshua, and as mediator of the New Covenant. The author comes to these conclusions using some very unique ways, employing First Century rhetoric and literary devices that often evade your […]
