Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over times gone by; I am doing something new;
it’s springing up — can’t you see it? I am making a road in the desert, rivers in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43: 18-19
I am more like the Children of Israel fresh out of Egypt than like the apostles walking out my faith in fear and reverence. Although I have seen the miracles of YHWH in my life, I am not fully walking it out. I have seen him use my hands to heal, my voice to deliver the gospel.

In Exodus 12, God instructs Moses and Aaron on the preparations for Passover, of which they would have to retell to the Children of Israel. God tells them that on the 10th day of the new month, which begins a new year in scripture, each household is to select a lamb, without blemish, a year-old male. This lamb was to live with them until the 14th day, on that day the whole congregation of Israel would kill the lamb.
In response to an email received from a brother in Christ:
“Shalom PD, thank you for your strong faith and amazing teachings! I’ve just watched your video, “Sabbath is a burden” and wow, I’ve learned so much from it! I’ve been keeping the sabbath for over a year now, as do some of my fellowship members and there seems to be a slight difference on how we should keep and honour the sabbath. I realise from your teaching that we are not to add man made rules or traditions to God’s word, but to keep it as Yahweh as instructed and the one thing that keeps being discussed, is that some are saying that we don’t go into a cafe or restaurant and eat on the sabbath, or go into coffee shop and have a drink on the sabbath, or go and buy food on the sabbath…

Valentine’s Day is here, and so is the single person’s race to get hooked up. The typical red and white colors are being adorned in the stores, and my inbox is flooding with promotional messages for cutie teddy bears, flowers and of course the chocolates. Yum, I am more inclined to the chocolates not so much anything else. I am not going to write about this worldly love, which the day packages and sells to people as its central message. It has become very evident that the day is lust driven and has nothing to do with the love of Yeshua.
I’m about to delve into one of the most controversial topics within the body of Christ right now. The mere fact that the enemy has caused controversy over this is a sign that this topic earnestly requires our attention.
A long time ago, I was reading the Book of Acts, I became frustrated that I did not see the things that I read in my life, nor in my church. I realised I had two choices, either I blame God and His “season” (that this stuff is not for today anymore), or I blame myself (that I am doing something wrong). When I humbled myself and submitted to what the Word said (that we will see the things Jesus saw, and greater things) regardless of what my religious leaders said, God came and changed my life. When we stop pointing fingers to others and start humbling ourselves, miracles happen.
Lets apply this to the question: Why the Jews don’t want our Jesus.
Another one of these topics where most likely all of us are about to get convicted, but I praise God I had my fair share of conviction as well. Piracy is everywhere, and many Christians are considering piracy acceptable. So what’s the story?
We’ve all said it, we’ve all heard it. Lets be honest, we love following our hearts. Its romantic, it feels good and sounds good. Just like the movies, right? I would like to submit to you that the enemy has gotten his hands dirty in deceiving us with this way of the world.
