"Ask and They Shall Receive"

One of my absolute favorite Bible events takes place in the 4th chapter of the Book of John. It is a favorite because the entire narrative between Yeshua (Jesus) and the Samaritan woman is so convoluted that it is made up of one miracle after another, yet it all takes place within one conversation. Like most of you, when I think about the miracles performed by Yeshua, my mind goes to the lame walking, the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, and the dead being raised. Yet, there are so many miraculous events that are equally powerful that we miss simply because the miracle takes place within words and hearts instead of outward physical experiences. One such series of miracles takes place in John

We Are Losing Our Elijahs

Last week, another leader of a large ministry committed suicide. I didn’t personally know him, but I grieved along with his family and congregation as I have done seemingly weekly this year. It seems like we are losing one leader after another to depression and death. I have also read many articles and comments over the past year with many opinions about these men and women.

The Torah (the first five books of the Bible) is divided into weekly portions. Each individual portion has a title or name and one portion is read each week of the year so that the entire Torah is read in a continuous cycle year after year. We actually have a celebration called Simchat Torah (The Joy of the Torah) that is celebrated each Fall at the end of Sukkot (Feast of Tabern

Are You Causing People to Blaspheme?

Have you ever heard something come out of someone’s mouth that was so contrary to who you thought that person was that you simply didn’t have a file in your file cabinet in which to file the statement? I’m talking about a statement so radically foreign from what you would expect that person to say that you actually felt your heart skip and the computer in your mind automatically went, for only a moment, to that blue error screen. This happened to me recently when a well-known pastor with a very large congregation was speaking about the book of Romans and quoted from Chapter 2, verses 28-29: 28 For one is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something visible in the flesh. 29 R
