Simchat Torah (The Joy of the Bible)

Today, we are celebrating Simchat Torah (Joyful Torah). During this holiday there is much joy and dancing as the Hebrew nation around the world rerolls the Torah scroll. They have special services reading the last portion of Deuteronomy 34:1-12 and the first portion of Genesis 1. There is no regular work done on this day. This is a time of family, fun, and joy.

Forgiveness and Yom Kippur

Forgiveness… a word we often hear, but often don’t want to hear. What does it mean to forgive? Why should we forgive?

What Day to Celebrate

Recently I made a post on Facebook questioning why we celebrate a holiday (easter) at a different time than Passover if we know that Jesus died at Passover time. Needless to say, it generated some response. Some was positive, some was accusing, and some felt that I was criticizing them because they do not participate in the Jewish feasts and that I don't see their hearts as being right with God. I want to clarify that I am not trying to come across boastful or proud of what I have learned. I am simply trying to present a side that has been hidden for many years. I am trying to raise questions about why we do what we do, and believe we must ask ourselves, is it really in the Word of God? We have to ask questions. Jesus himself said, ““Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you.”

The Mo'edim Series Hanukkah

This video gives great additional insight into the celebration of Hanukkah. The question then remains by many for our family, WHY would we celebrate Hanukkah? I believe that we are opening doors that have been hidden from the eyes of Christians WORLDWIDE to come alive on the inside. So let your LIGHT SHINE before men. Jesus said in John chapter 10, "MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE and OBEY? May we all come to a position this holiday season of not only hearing but OBEYING. Everyday let us be led by the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT at work in you. YOU are a living MENORAH. Jesus said in Matthew chapter 5 YOU are the light to the WORLD.

Why as a Mother of Four I celebrate Chanukah.

Why do I celebrate Chanukah? I love this festival, which is known as the Festival of Lights, Feast of Dedication, and a time of miracles.
