All That Work for Nothing?

How often when we read the book of Leviticus do we get bored…eyes glazing over as the words on the page drift by without meaning? We yawn and skim over all the detailed instructions given by God to Moses thinking, “This has nothing to do with me. The Temple’s gone…Yeshua’s done away with the sacrifice…ho […]

Leave it to Rabbi Matthew!

I know it’s been quite a while, and I do apologize. Life has a way of moving from one day to the next and before you know it five months is gone! So what’s been happening at Journey to Messiah? A lot of praying and a lot of working…literally. I’ve been doing some reworking of […]

What Does the Passing Lane Have To Do With the Land of Canaan?

If you’re anything like me, minor irritation lurks everywhere. The smallest things often get the biggest reactions. It’s the little things that drive me batty! But the big question is: does it matter? In doing research for my novel I purchased ‘Manners and Customs in the Bible – An Illustrated Guide to Daily Life in Bible […]

What If?

I am finally pursuing the novel that is dancing in my head, waiting patiently to be let out. Rather it’s more like the kid doing the pee-pee dance, praying for that locked bathroom door to open! Two words – what if – are keys to a writer’s imagination. Those two little words start a whole […]

What Does Baking Bread Have To Do With The Kingdom of Heaven?

When God wants my attention, when He wants to teach me something, He pulls together random situations, conversations, and my own wandering thoughts. Recently, fellow blogger James Pyles posted about a radio sermon he heard. He is having an issue with Christianese (as many of us do once we come to the full revelation that […]

There’s a Storm Coming

  I’m writing this on Labor Day, but it won’t post until Thursday. So as I write this, there is a hurricane brewing in the Atlantic with its sites set on us in south Florida. Though it’s too soon to tell, by the time this is posted, we could be a lot closer to landfall […]

The Sabbath Was Made For Man

Did you ever take a look at how many times the word ‘Sabbath’ is used in the Bible? Over 150 times. Compare that with the tithe (which is mentioned just over 50 times) and I’ve got to wonder which is more difficult for us to follow? Give ten percent of your funds to the work […]

What Do You Want Yeshua To Do For You?

In Matthew 20 verses 21 and 32, Yeshua asks, “What do you want?” These two situations are different, yet the question is the same. In the first, it was John and Jacob’s mother asking for her sons to have a place of honor in Yeshua’s kingdom. In the second, two blind men desperately wanted their […]

What Do You Do When You Want to Kill Your Teenagers?

Can I get real with you? I hate dealing with teenagers. They are the most self-absorbed, self-centered, demanding individuals on the face of God’s planet. Yet, two of them are my grandchildren whom I desperately love. So I can’t just kill them and be done with it, no matter how much the thought brings my […]

Why I Believe Yeshua is Messiah

In recent months, I’ve been devouring Rabbi David Fohrman’s teachings at Aleph Beta Academy. In their own words, “Aleph Beta Academy is committed to the relevance of Jewish learning.” This is not a site where anyone believes Yeshua is the Messiah. However, they do believe in the promised Messiah. It is the teachings I glean […]
