El-Kabong is Shaking Things Up

A friend of mine, Mike Zulinke, shared an article on Facebook (Are you Still Charismatic?) to help his friends understand his journey from a non-denominational practice to becoming an Anglican priest. It reminded me of everything I loved about the Anglican/Episcopal tradition. It also reminded me of a conversation I had with fellow blogger, James Pyles […]

Is Your Faith in God or in Your Faith?

I had a conversation with a friend the other day. We got to talking about the end of days and persecution. A common worry among believers is that we will not be able to stand in those days and will deny our Lord. This morning I was reading Matthew 17:14-20.  When they came to the […]

When God Reminds Me of Archie Bunker

The last couple of days have found me laid up. I’m antsy and restless, so accustomed to being on the constant go, rushing from one thing to the next, that not being able to pick up and go has been a frustrating challenge. Don’t get me wrong, there are days I love nothing more than […]

Given that I love to learn and share what I learn, here are a few tidbits I discovered in my research that […]

Beware the Teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees

In my Conversation with God a couple of weeks ago, I asked the Lord why, if Yeshua told us to do all that the Scribes and Pharisees said to do, would He then warn us about their teaching? As goes many of our conversations, the Lord told me to start digging to find the answer. […]

Man’s Tradition Changing the Sign of Messiah

Did you ever need God to nudge you to do something? If you’re anything like me, it’s a daily occurrence. This morning I was preparing for our Torah study. The portion we are studying involves the two men Joshua sent to spy out the land and Rahab’s story. Rahab tied a scarlet cord in her […]

Conversation With God

Today there was something different about this passage: Now the Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Yeshua, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. But He replied to them, “When evening comes, you say, ‘Fair weather coming, for the sky is red,’ and in the morning, ‘Stormy weather today, for the sky is red […]

The Grace Gospel Is Not Good News

Today’s understanding of the Gospel message is that we are sinners, incapable of doing anything right or good. While much of this may be true before becoming a disciple of the Master, the grace Gospel has morphed into a license to sin. It has become the excuse that allows us to continue doing wrong when […]

What is the Name of His Son?

Who has gone up into heaven, and come down? Who has gathered the wind in the palm of His hand? Who has wrapped the water in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name and what is the name of His son – if you know? – Proverbs […]

God’s Compassion – A Hard Pill to Swallow?

Something interesting struck me as I was reading Matthew chapter 14. The first twelve verses talk about John’s beheading. Then we move through several verses with Yeshua feeding the crowd. We land near the end of the chapter with Peter walking on the water.  My rabbi, Matthew Salathe, talks about bookends – times in God’s […]
