In HIM i found me

Crosses Everywhere

When I became a Jewish believer in Jesus I recognized HIM on the Cross and accepted His death in exchange for mine. Later I understood that in order to be HIS Follower I needed to take up my own Cross in this life filled with storms. Then, as I looked at His Cross I saw myself on the Cross next to HIM.

Today as a believer for 32 years at the age of 70, I see myself held tightly in the arms of Jesus. I have become part of HIS Cross and I no longer carry mine.
He … knew my name in Eternity Past
He … knew my story in Eternity Past
I … was on His mind when He Died

HE IS RISEN and because HE HAS….so will I.
Remember and Share HIS Story ! ! !

Blogiversary & Testimony

blogiversary.pngHappy blogiversary to my blog!

Thank you very much for following and for all the likes. It’s really very much appreciated. A special thanks and acknowledgment to Kae Bucher from https://bucketsonabarefootbeach.com/ For some kool recipes, check out https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/

It’s been almost a year since I made my first 3 blogposts. A couple of months before I started blogging, I’d noticed many testimonies from Jewish believers in Yeshua on Youtube from 1 particular channel. I’ve seen a handful of testimonies over the years, but never these many.  I felt this intense need to also share in this; and to share about the biblical truth regarding the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua Mashiach (The Messiah). So, I started this blog. I say my first 3 posts because as I was new to blogging and WordPress, I thought about what to post about. I remembered what the Torah (ADONAI’S instructions) say about 2 or 3 witnesses. So, I posted 3 videos of my favourite testimonies from Jewish believers in Yeshua. That was a start….

I’ve been a believer in Yeshua Mashiach since 2002 . Before 2002, it was almost like I was “blind”. I had no idea. I just didn’t see nor understand anything about the Bible, Yeshua etc. Nothing. A couple of years before, in 1998, I was living in London, UK at the time. I made an attempt to search for a higher divine figure, but I was disappointed by what was presented to me. I didn’t feel nor experience anything in man made religions nor astrology. So, I didn’t pursue it further.

However, 1 night in early February 2002, my life changed. My eyes were opened, I rediscovered my Jewishness and this set me on a path to find the Jewish Messiah. At first, I thought I should focus on Orthodox  Judaism, but I was very cautious. You don’t just radically change your life just like that. It’s only logical that you have to test it and be sure. I decided to start by reading the Word of God and the Book of Genesis. I took a Bible and I really read this for the first time.  This Book is alive and I kept reading (and I’m still reading the Word of God every week). But, I had questions.

Later in 2002, I was a final year undergraduate student and I met a middle eastern looking man, an Israeli (same age as me) at a social gathering one evening. He was a friend of a friend of a friend (you know how it is). There was something about him. He was probably the most Jewish person I’ve ever met in my life, a Hebrew speaking Israeli, who was studying at the same university. As I was going through this transitional phase from a non believer to a believer, I had alot of questions. After this initial meeting, we met again one day on campus. We were both waiting for our classes. During this conversion, we discussed various things,  but for some reason ( I was quite direct (very tachles) I asked him whether he believed in Jesus (as I didn’t know the name Yeshua at the time). I don’t know why I asked this as Jews don’t believe in Yeshua…right?…right?…WRONG! He confirmed that he, his sister, parents and maternal grandfather were all believers in Yeshua and there were others. He explained that they emigrated from Israel as it was difficult being a believer and living in Israel. This testimony answered my questions. I placed my belief in Yeshua and I also started to keep ADONAI’s appointed times from that year onwards. (Also later in 2002, a family member who has visited Israel many times, also confirmed that there are Jews in Israel who believe in Yeshua and she also believe in Yeshua)

Since then, my life changed. It’s completely changed. It’s not a good nor great feeling…it’s is an “absolutely fabulous, amazing, super, out of this world, divine, pure, unbelievably shalom, beyond a natural high, peace at heart and mind, words can’t describe it” type of feeling.  I mean, if you are attending a group, congregation, temple, church (whatever you want to call it) and you are wondering why you are there, then you are at the wrong place. Instead, read the Word of God, pray in the name of Yeshua and experience 100% pure ADONAI. Find out the truth for yourself. It’s free.

To conclude: ADONAI is real! Yeshua is real! The Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) is Real! and you can be Jewish and believe in Yeshua. Afterall, Yeshua is Jewish! He is the King of IsraeL, AND the King of both Jew and Gentile. We are together part of the olive tree. Man made religion isn’t a true representation of ADONAI. Actually, it is completely false. Man made religion is similar to junk food. It looks good, but it’s really bad for you.  I was / am a sinner but I can see the strong Right hand of ADONAI working in my life many times over. HE has helped me out difficult situations & times, given me everything and more. I don’t deserve this grace, such love.

Life is really about this concept: we should walk with ADONAI, praise HIM, fear HIM, talk to HIM (through Yeshua) and follow HIS instructions. ADONAI, the Almighty Living God of Israel will show you amazing things.

I hope this will help you (whomever you are and your background) to find Yeshua Mashiach (the Messiah). Salvation and ADONAI’S instructions (Torah) have been sent out from Israel to everyone and are coming back to the Jews now.

This is my favourite testimony.

Baruch atah Adonai

A beautiful poem by Kae Bucher!

Buckets on a Barefoot Beach


I am woman,

I am one

of these earthly scented things

a suckling being

who sucks sunshine from Eden

an hourglass holding moments

in a seashell

a sea-swell of trees and

flowers and scattered dandelions

and dust

I am a mint scented lioness

who walks through jaded forests

yet cries in the middle of the night

to be held

a wild wavy woman

who sometimes

flings about on frothing waves

but is gathered

to the bosom of Yah

like flowers

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who is good and causes good.

Yeshua discussed the destruction of the Temple: 17th of Tammuz / Shiv’ah Asar b’Tammuz / שבעה עשר בתמוז‎‎

In Matthew 24: 1 and 2 (CJB), we read that “[a]s Yeshua left the Temple and was going away, his talmidim came and called his attention to its buildings.  But he answered them, “You see all these? Yes! I tell you, they will be totally destroyed — not a single stone will be left standing!”.

Earlier this week, it was the 17th of Tammuz known as Shivah Asar B’Tammuz, is the start of a three-week mourning period for the destruction of Jerusalem and the two Holy Temples. The walls of Jerusalem were breached by the Romans, in the year 69, after a lengthy siege. (Three weeks later, after the Jews put up a valiant struggle, the Romans destroyed the second Holy Temple on the 9th of Av.) An historical account of the bloody conflict could be found in Josephus (Wars V, VI). The Temple was destroyed on the 10th day of the 5th month, according to Jewish tradition — ironically, the same day of the year upon which Nebuchadnezzar had burned down the first temple, some 656 years earlier!

Although, this period isn’t part of the biblical feasts or appointed times, what is important to note that Yeshua prophesied about this event approximately 40 years before the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. Yeshua prophesied about near future and far future events (these far future events are possibly applicable to our times – if you read further in Matthew 24 and Mark 13). I will blog about these at a later date.

Whereas the 17th of Tammuz and the three week period are a day and period of sorrow and mourning; for us believers in Yeshua, it should be a period of joy as Yeshua rebuilt the Temple (i.e his body) within 3 days (John 2:19).

Hear the call: Sh’ma (Hear Israel)

 

Hear the call, Israel!

Hear, my words, Israel, you beautiful olive tree consisting of Jew and Gentile believers.

Hear, Israel: we, the remnant come in the spirit and power of Eliyahu, the prophet of old! We praise, pray and prophesy before the return of our King, our Jewish Messiah, our Salvation, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Branch of King David – Yeshua ha Mashiach.

Hear Israel, what do you say to confess your faith when coming face to face with the adversary?

We say…we sing as loud as we can: “Sh’ma, Yisra’el! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, Isra’el! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one]; and then we pray, like we’ve never prayed before, like Eliyahu, the prophet, we pray as if we want to bring fire from Heaven,  we sing songs and dance like King David and we blow the Shofar! We are prayer warriors!

Halleluyah!

 May Yeshua Mashiach bless you and your family

Sh’ma by yossi azulay
Deuteronomy 6 4-9:
4 “Sh’ma, Yisra’el! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, Isra’el! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one];
5 and you are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, all your being and all your resources.
6 These words, which I am ordering you today, are to be on your heart;
7 and you are to teach them carefully to your children. You are to talk about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
8 Tie them on your hand as a sign, put them at the front of a headband around your forehead,
9and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates.

A big, untold story: online videos of Jews explaining why they believe Jesus is the Messiah have been viewed more than 23 million times. Here’s the latest. (Update)

Interesting article on Jews seeking the Jewish Messiah.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

yeshua-videos“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” — the Apostle Paul (Romans 1:16)

With so much bad news in the U.S., Israel, Russia and around the world these days, I thought it might be good to kick off 2017 with some very good news.

Here, then, is an update to a column I published on September 22, 2015 about “a big, untold story” that “the media isn’t reporting” but is very much “worth examining.”

“Millions of Jews have begun a quest to find the Messiah,” I wrote at the time, based on conversations with key Messianic Jewish ministry leaders in the U.S. and Israel. “For reasons I cannot fully explain, Jews are suddenly searching for answers to the deepest and most important questions concerning life and death and God and atonement and eternity, in…

Biblical New Year

Tonight, the biblical new year starts. In Exodus 12 1 & 2, ADONAI spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said,  “You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you.” This is also the start of the countdown to Pesach (Passover) which is on the 14th day of Nisan. It is a month of celebration, freedom and salvation as the children of Israel gained freedom from slavery in Egypt thousands of years ago and we were also set free from sin through the blood of Yeshua Mashiach.

The countdown is on…

Chag Purim Sameach

One could say that the current political climate in many parts of the world, resembles the time Hadassah (Ester) lived in: Peoples (from various “factions”, who would otherwise despise each other, uniting) to destroy Israel and believers. However, Purim is a good reminder that God is in control. It’s a time of faith, a time of recognising that God is at work behind the scene protecting us and it’s a time of celebration!

Or one could say: “they tried to kill us, they failed because God delivered us…let’s eat”- type of day.

May the light of Yeshua Mashiach be revealed to all Israel and all nations.
