Image source: YouTube/The View“The View” host Joy Behar said on Tuesday that it’s essentially “mental illness” to believe that “Jesus talks to you,” with co-host Sunny Hostin saying that she’s not so sure she wants her “vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”

These comments came during a conversation about Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” star who briefly became a White House staffer before reportedly being terminated.

Newman made waves this week when she uttered some shocking comments about Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith…. more

What did Jesus mean when He said, “It is finished”?


What did Jesus mean when He said, “It is finished”? How did Jesus’ death on the cross finish the provision of salvation?

Isaiah 53 is the ‘Forbidden’ Chapter in the Tanakh


After I was saved in 1983, I called a Messianic Congregation in my area and spoke to a lovely lady – a fellow Jewish Christian. She was so excited over my coming to know Yeshua as my Savior! We must have talked for well over an hour, but the thing I remember so vividly was when she brought up Isaiah 53. She asked if I had ever read that portion of Scripture. I had not – but promised that I would after we hung up.

To say that I was shocked would be a gross understatement. I remember reading the words over and over. I wondered why I had never heard this in my synagogue.

It was a clear picture of our Redeemer – Yeshua – and why He went to that Cross to suffer and die. I’m sure that most of the readers of this article have read Isaiah 53 numerous times. But for those who have not – I am placing it here… more

What is the true meaning of Christmas?


Children Version – Christmas is really about God loving us and sending us Jesus.
For Christians, celebrating Christmas should be about remembering and praising God for what Jesus did for us. Even though He is God, Jesus was born as a human boy and grew up to be a man. He was born to ordinary parents who weren’t rich or famous, but who loved God very much. Jesus became a human so He could die for us on the cross. His death paid the punishment that we deserve because of our sins. If we choose to trust in Jesus as our personal Savior, we can be in Heaven with Him when we die… more

Adult Version – “What is the true meaning of Christmas?”
The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love… more

Nazareth’s Muslim Mayor Cancels Christmas


Nazareth city officials said Thursday that no Christmas celebrations would be held in the Israeli-Arab city, traditionally considered by Christians to be the birth site of Jesus, in order to protest US President Donald Trump announcement last week that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Physical Location Map of NazarethNazareth Mayor Ali Salam, who is a Muslim, said in a statement that Trump’s statement spurred him to cancel the celebrations in solidarity with the Palestinian Authority. “This is the natural reaction to a decision that impacts our nation and Jerusalem,” Salim told a conference in the city. “We are part of one single people…” and Trump’s comments removed “all the joy” from the holiday period.

Christians are actually a minority in Nazareth, where 69% of the residents are Muslim and only 30.9% are Christian…. more

Truth About Jesus – I AM The Bread Of Life Part 4


Bible – Written word of God | Jesus – Living word of God

In Exodus 3:13, Moses ask God, what name should I tell the people of Israel when they ask “Who sent you to us.” God says to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.

“Perhaps the vast possibilities implied can be more fully grasp if we give the verb – as is now done by most scholars – a future since: I WILL BE THAT I WILL BE.

Drawing Near“In these last days [God] has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things” (Heb. 1:2).

Since Jesus is the Son of God, He is the heir of all that God possesses.

When Christ first came to earth He became poor for our sakes, that we, through His poverty, might be made rich (2 Cor. 8:9). He had nothing for Himself—He had “nowhere to lay His head” (Luke 9:58). Even His clothes were taken from Him when He died, and He was buried in a tomb that belonged to someone else.

It is beyond our understanding to imagine that the Galilean carpenter who was crucified like a common criminal, naked and bleeding on a cross outside the city of Jerusalem, is the King of kings and Lord of lords. But He is!

As the Son of God, Jesus is the heir of all that God possesses. The apostle Paul explains that all things not only were created by Christ but also for Him (Col. 1:16). Everything that exists will find its true meaning only when it comes under the final control of Christ.

The psalms predicted that Christ would one day be the heir to all that God possesses. The Father, speaking to the Son, says, “Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Thy possession'” (Ps. 2:8). God also declared, “I also shall make Him My first-born, the highest of the kings of the earth” (Ps. 89:27; cf. Col. 1:15). “First-born” refers to legal rights—especially those of inheritance and authority.

When Christ comes to earth again, He will completely and eternally inherit all things (Rev. 11:15). And because we have trusted in Him, we are to be “fellow heirs with Christ” (Rom. 8:16-17). When we enter into His eternal kingdom, we will jointly possess all that He possesses. We will not be joint Christs or joint Lords, but will be joint heirs. His marvelous inheritance will be ours as well.

Suggestions for Prayer

Thank God for making you a joint heir with Christ. Thank your Lord for allowing that to happen through His death on the cross.

For Further Study

Read Revelation 5:1-14 and 11:15-18, noting how the inhabitants of heaven respond to Christ.

Who Are We Throwing Away?


Where does your faith stand? Who is Jesus to you? Who’s truth are you listening to? Does it line up with scripture? The rapture (catching away) can occur anytime and nothing has to happen for this to occur. Are you ready if this happens? Are you ready to meet God or be left here? Is what you know the absolute Truth and have you asked for your heart to be examined? Do you examine your heart?

2 Corinthians 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Or do you yourselves not recognize that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless you fail the test.

Galatians 6:4 But each person should examine his own work, and then he will have a reason for boasting in himself alone, and not in respect to someone else.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 Instead, just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please men, but rather God, who examines our hearts.

Revelation 2:23 I will kill her children with the plague. Then all the churches will know that I am the One who examines minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your works.
