In Matthew 24, Yeshua (Jesus) makes an interesting correlation between the end of the age and a woman giving birth. [Matthew 24:8]. As the birth of a baby draws near, the birth pangs intensify, and the timing between pangs becomes shorter and shorter, eventually leading to the climatic moment of birth. The world is now in the middle of a prophetic birthing cycle. No one can deny that the birth pangs have been intensifying , but the key to knowing that birth is near is that moments before a baby is born, the WATER BREAKS. I believe we are about to embark on that pivotal moment in history.
Last night, I posted a Facebook status about our night last night in Arad and it dawned on me — how much people really don't know what happens all the time in our town for those who believe in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah. So I thought, I'd post a video that was done four years ago. Not much has changed and it'll give you an idea of what we deal with in our little town in the Negev.
As I write the daily devotion each day, and I place a passage of scripture within the message — I find myself studying the Hebrew or the Greek of the Word, since I modify the verse slightly to make it easier to read for our worldwide audience, while at the same time making sure the translation doesn't lose its meaning. However, today I came across a verse whose meaning is so deep in Hebrew, there's truly no way to give it justice when you translate it to English.
A reader asks about Jesus "destroying terror" and I do my best to understand and answer the question.
One of Israel's most prominent rabbis, Yitzhak Kaduri, shortly before he died wrote the name of the Messiah on a small note which he requested would remained sealed. When the note was opened, it revealed the name: Yehoshua or Yeshua!
