The Little Known Crisis in Israel’s Heartland

The world is still reeling from the horrific tragedies that took place in Israel on Oct 7th, 2023. 1,400 Israeli citizens were barbarically murdered by Hamas, and more than 200 were taken as hostages. This level of brutality against the Jewish people has not been seen since the Holocaust. Now Hezbollah is threatening Israel’s northern...

Fight Like Ittai: A Biblical, Non-Jewish Response to Terrorism Against Jews

Now more than ever, Christians see that for humanity’s sake, we need to support Israel. But how? Can people like you and I – non-Jewish, lovers of God, Israel, and the Jewish people – do anything to stop the continuous slaughter of God’s chosen people? After the recent, horrific events in Israel, I am sure...

Why the Media is Obsessed With Lying About Israel

Have you ever noticed that Israel is one of the main targets of the mainstream media? Fake news is a real problem in today’s world. There is a massive anti-Israel propaganda machine that is well-funded and unfortunately quite successful. What’s astounding is that most Christians take what the mainstream media says about Israel as gospel...

Bread & Water, God’s Mandate to Bless Israel 

I have a question for you. Did you know that we, as Christians, are biblically mandated to bless the Jewish people? Genesis 12 states that whoever blesses Israel will be blessed, and whoever lightly esteems Israel will be cursed. But what exactly does it mean to “bless Israel”? Deuteronomy 23 gives us insight into this...

Blessing, Loving & Serving Israel – A Biblical Mandate

I have a question for you. Have you ever wondered why fake news outlets are so bent on demonizing Israel? People are literally boycotting products made by Jewish people because they live in Judea! Somehow they are convinced that giving militant terrorists (whose charter, by the way, explicitly says that their goal is to wipe...

Fight Like Ittai: A Biblical, Non-Jewish Response to Terrorism Against Jews

If you have kept up with what has happened in Israel over the past few months then your heart is aching for the families of the recent terror victims. Among the victims were three sets of young Jewish siblings –  Yaakov and Asher Paley, Hallel and Yagel Yaniv, and Maia and Rina Dee. These were...

Christian Zionist Hero Training

Heroes rise to the occasion and bravely fulfill their mission. Most of our Christian Zionist heroes stood against insurmountable pressure, and some gave their lives.  Christian Zionist William Hechler was thoroughly convinced that the Jewish people would return to the land of Israel. When he met Theodore Herzl, he knew he must do all in...

Abandoning Fatherless Christianity

Father figures are important. They play a very unique and powerful role. A good father stabilizes, affirms, casts vision, and builds confidence. No other person could say, “See that goal, you can make it,” “You’re doing good,” or, “I’m proud of you,” and have the same impact.  Fifteen times in the Old Testament and seventeen...

Jesus did Passover | Should You?

Getting to know someone can be challenging. There is so much depth to every individual – strengths, weaknesses, personality traits, character, experiences, dreams, and passions. I was really close to my grandfather before he finished his time here on this earth. We spent time together working on his cattle farm and tinkering on cars. I...

Come to the Well

Remember when you first started learning about Israel, and whether it was something about the biblical feasts, covenants, or prophecy, you were amazed by how rich and meaningful it was? If your experience was anything like mine, you were astounded by how deep and heart-connecting these biblical, Jewish, Israeli things were.  Honestly, it kind of...

Modern-Day Greeks and Maccabees

Shalom and Chanukah Sameach! Have you ever considered why the Greeks went to such great lengths in their efforts to conquer the Jewish people? Would you not agree that sending hundreds of thousands of troops to take out a small band of rebels is a little overkill?  This war was very different from previous attacks...

Israel – The Epicenter of Struggle and Hope

The Feast of Tabernacles is the climax of the biblical festivals. Joy runs sky-high as festive meals, music, dancing, praises to God, and smiling faces light up the atmosphere. Deuteronomy 16:14-15 puts it well:  “You shall rejoice in your feast… For seven days you shall keep the feast to the Lord your God at the...

Whether you’ve got a pumpkin in your backyard garden, you visit the u-pick peach orchard every year, or you make your livelihood as a farmer, harvest time is one of the most joyous times of the year. There is something fulfilling about plucking fully ripened, fresh, luscious produce right...

Happy New Year!

As the sun sets this evening we will enter into the biblical festival of Trumpets/Rosh HaShana. On this special day of “blasting,” we listen to the sound of the shofar. There are several biblical meanings embedded into the sound waves of a shofar blast. It can be a call to war as in the battle...

Imagine this – a beautiful rolling terrain with birds singing from tree tops, children laughing at play in a crystal clear, bubbling stream.

Inspirational Mourning

Muskets and short sabers glistened in the afternoon sun as the French Emperor walked the streets with his military escorts. As they rounded a corner, the entire company stopped in their tracks. What was that sound? Straight ahead, in the distance, was a beautifully-built building. Yes, the sound was coming from inside. A few men...

Aching Hearts for Israel

As Christians who believe in God’s covenant promises, our hearts ache when we hear about the rockets being fired at innocent civilians and the burning of synagogues in Israel.  Just today I heard about what happened to the Avigal family in the town of Sderot on Israel’s southern border. As is all too common in...

Passover Cleaning, Healing & Redemption

The Israelite slaves were released from Pharaoh and their leaven was deflated before they were truly free. Humanity is healed from world pandemics through humility, prayer, and repentance. Broken relationships require repentance before reconciliation is reached. Let’s compare these three realities and see if we can find a theme that will strengthen our faith and...
