Welcome to the Mishpochah
(the family) of God!
If you pray and ask the Lord Jesus (Yeshua) into your life, you make the most significant choice you will ever make. You step into a personal relationship with God Himself. There are many blessings and opportunities that He has made available to you. These articles will help you understand what these blessings and opportunities are and will introduce you to how they can become yours.
Meeting Messiah, Knowing GodYou may be a Jewish person who has just come to realize that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah of Israel, or you may be someone who has known about Him for years but never turned your life over to Him as Lord of your life before. Maybe you never even gave Him a thought before now. Either way, God has reached out His loving arms to you, wanting to draw you closer to Himself if you are reading this.
Being Born AgainIf you have truly opened the door of your heart to Yeshua, your life will reflect it. There will be a change in you. You may not “feel” anything initially or you may have had a profound experience. Sometimes people have experiences with God..
Getting to Know Jesus as God the SonYour life just changed because you have met the Person of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). You can’t see Him in the natural realm but He’s there with you in the spirit realm. Though He came and lived as 100% Man on the earth, He is also 100% God. The mystery…
Getting to Know God as Your FatherThe Bible is God’s Self-disclosure to mankind. It begins with the words, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). From this we know that God existed before the earth and the heavens (plural) existed. He was there before “the beginning.” He is the Creator of all that exists. The entire universe owes its existence to God…
Getting to Know God's Holy SpiritJesus said to his disciples, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” This can be likened to their born again experience…
Getting to Know the BibleThe Bible is comprised of what we call the Jewish Scriptures and the New Testament, though “Covenant” is a better word than “Testament,” which is not actually found in the Bible. The Bible is really a collection of books that tell the story of God’s different covenants with the same people, Israel. All we know about God can be found in the Bible in both the Jewish Scriptures and New Testaments…
Communicating with GodNow that you have entered into a relationship with God, it is the most natural thing to talk with Him. Prayer is conversation with God. You may never have prayed before, but the way is now open for you to talk with your heavenly Father.
Staying Free in GodBecause our souls are used to thinking in certain ways, and our emotions have been responding accordingly our whole lives, it may take a while for our souls to catch on to what our spirits are learning from God.
Becoming a Part of the Family of GodBabies are born into families and you were Born again into the family of God. You were not meant to live life in the LORD isolated from other believers in Yeshua. Just as we would not leave a newborn baby alone, you as a newly Born again child of God need to learn more than this
study can teach you.
Know Your EnemyIt may surprise you to know, with all the goodness of God around you, that you have an enemy. Actually, he’s God’s enemy. Since he is against God he is called “the adversary” which in Hebrew is pronounced “ha satahn” from which we get the name Satan.
Now What?You should now have a picture of what life in the LORD is like and how important it is to know Him personally. As you can see, life would be quite different without Him. Being one with God in love is the supreme reason God created you. You will find fulfillment…
Messianic PropheciesListed are only a limited number of the hundreds of Old Testament prophecies of a Coming One or an Anointed One, which is another name in Hebrew for “Messiah.”
Prophecies of Israel's Return to the LandBiblical prophecies are like history written before it happens. In many cases, hundreds of years before it takes place. Below is a partial list of Old Testament Scriptures relating to the Land of Israel and their fulfillment.
The Bigger PictureIn order for you to understand that you have just stepped into a place in history as a believer in Yeshua, it is meaningful for you to have some understanding of where we are today in God’s unfolding of His plan for mankind. For that reason, please take a few moments to read through this mini-history lesson.
