I received a very sad email the other day that moved me so much, I thought I’d share it so that we can all be reminded of how to handle forgiveness and infidelity.
She wrote that she has been unfaithful to her husband for the past ten years and had treated him badly. She also expressed her deep remorse for all of the things she has done and has recently accepted Yeshua. (Jesus) She has repented from her sins and has turned to YHVH for forgiveness and she believes by faith that she has been forgiven. Continue Reading
As long as I can remember as a believer, I’ve been trying to figure out what my spiritual gift is. I’ve taken those silly online tests but I never fully trusted them. I have prayed about this many, many times and did not receive an answer. I was expecting the voice of God to come thundering through a cloud and say something like… Continue Reading
There can be a way which seems right to a person, but its end are the ways of death. Prov 16:25
This is a pretty simple verse right? As far as I know, this verse has never been a point of contention for any denomination in Christendom.

While reading about the parable of the hidden treasure in Matt 13:44, and about the merchant looking for fine pearls in the next verse, I noticed a related yet opposite theme involving Judas of Iscariot. Continue Reading
This study is done by Torah scholar and teacher Tim Hegg from the Torah Resource Institute. This is a long study but it really is an eye-opener in that he examines the oral and written laws during the “pre-destruction” period i.e. during Yeshua’s time here. You will see that the written Torah is the only authoritative word sanctioned by YHVH and that the oral traditions of today were not taught by followers of The Way. He goes into detail on such topics as: Continue Reading
