Life & Society

Blog articles written by Israeli believers, and sometimes guest contributors from other countries, related to any social, moral, or other life-related issues.

Israeli law allows refusal of entry to Israel due to missionary activity

Joshua writes, "It is important to be informed on this subject, particularly as it relates to alleged missionaries, an accusation which is almost always directed at Messianic Jews or Christians."

“Yeshu”

Elhanan writes, "That final letter is now being grafted back onto Yeshu and becoming Yeshua, the Hebrew word for salvation, and eyes are opening to see Him who is our very Jewish brother and King."

Who am I? Identity in Messiah

Wendy writes, "Identity is at the core of our essence. Who am I? Where did I come from and where am I going? What is my purpose and do I have a destiny? Can I influence the fulfilment of my destiny?"

The parabolic elevator

Elhanan writes, "This daily occurrence of peaceful and quiet coexistence, which occurs in all walks of life in Israel, makes no news, and is seldom reported."

Living in the moment

Eric writes, "The more I thought about the time I wasted doing things in my world, when I could have been devoting all of my time to entering his world, the more I thought about a verse of Scripture from Exodus 24:12..."

The holidays at Yeshua’s house: Passover

"It wasn’t until a few years ago that it dawned on me that Yeshua has an earthly family – with traditions and holidays that God Himself set in place. As much as I loved Yeshua, I had never considered that I had been cordially and biblically invited to celebrate those holidays!"

Searching for questions and finding peace

Eric writes, "My goal as a rabbi is not to provide answers to all the questions people have about G-D, the Bible, and life in general. My goal is simply to help them find questions that will lead them to the One who does know all the answers."

Dare to delight

Simcha writes, "For some of us, waking up and delighting in the Lord comes more easily and naturally than for others. I myself have struggled for years with guilt and a feeling of condemnation that I haven't found it easy to spring out of bed at 5 am in order to spend 2 hours with God."

When one member suffers

Aaron writes, "In the meantime, you can also take a lesson from the Apostle Paul, who made a deliberate point of encouraging support, both practical and prayer support, for the Believers in Israel."

All alone

Orna writes, "I thought to myself: they will most likely feel better once they’re done, believing they did their part to deserve His favor today. Sadness shadowed over me. How remote from Truth!"
