And when your children ask . . .

“And Moses said to the people, “Remember this day (Passover)  in which you went out from Egypt, from the house of bondage; for with a Powerful Hand YHVH brought you out . . .” (Exo 13:3)

“In days to come, when your descendant asks you, ‘What does this mean?’ say to him, ‘With a Mighty Hand YHVH brought us out of Egypt, out of the land of bondage.” (Exo 13:14)

“And you shall tell your child on that day, saying, ‘It is because of what YHVH did for ME when I came out of Egypt (that place of bondage).'” (Exo 13:8)

So when our children ask us about this ‘passover thing’, what will we tell them? About what He did for others, or how HE brought ‘ME’ out of the bondage of sin by His Powerful Right Hand ?

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me.” (Gal 2:20)

How do we do this?

Rhonda and I have not posted as many ‘tidbits’ this year concerning Passover and this season as we have in the past, due to lot’s of change and ‘busy-ness’. We were thinking back about roughly 16 years ago when our Father first started us on this portion of our walk. (It’s always good to remember from whence we come) ‘How do we do this stuff? How do we keep Passover? We don’t have a ‘hagaddah’? What are we gonna do?” And then the Ruach reminded us . . . most all of us have a ‘hagaddah’ and have had it for years. It’s The Bible.
What did our Father tell us to do? Exodus 12 and Leviticus 23 is a good place to start. We canNOT do it all, but we do what we can. And by NOT doing some of the things that are ‘place-specific’ or ‘person-specific’, we are literally being obedient and ‘doing’ what it says by not doing them. By the way, Genesis 6 and the account of Noah is ‘Passover language’.
And then, we have the order of service laid out by Yeshua . . . The Lamb, The Bread, The Cup – ‘as oft as ye do these things’ . . .and the backdrop of bitterness – ‘ye do remember The Lord’s death until He returns . . .’ The day of His resurrection was/is an appointed time of God, and it’s called early first fruits or ‘Raysheet Omer – The Day of the Wave Offering. Nowhere is it called ‘easter’. There is no meaningful resurrection without His reconciling death (Passover). Many in Scripture were resurrected. The Resurrection is not to be diminished, but there is only One Who’s death reconciled us to our Father. We are to remember His death – Passover – a pattern which was implemented in Exodus 12, a type and shadow of what was to come, and ultimately fulfilled by Yeshua and found in Him only.
Your HaGaddah? Genesis 6, Leviticus 23, The Apostolic Writings, just to mention a few. And in all those passages, we have yet to find an egg, a bunny, a basket, apples and honey or a cup for a man whom, ‘if you can accept it, has already come’.

DATE CHANGE FOR OUR PASSOVER

DATE CHANGE FOR OUR PASSOVER

When we set projected dates for the upcoming holidays, we always endeavor to be as accurate and thorough as we possibly can in the setting of those projections. But these projections are just that – projections. Although the ‘new moon conjunction’ for Kentucky was on March 27th (which would put Passover on April 10th) the first visible waxing crescent did not appear over Kentucky until a period between the 28th-29th. In the past, if the projected dates were within 24 hours or so of the ‘signs in the heavens’ we would not make a change, but this is more than that margin of error. Therefore we are moving the date for our Passover Gathering to WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12TH. Everything else concerning the event remains unchanged.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and hopefully everyone will still be able to attend.
In line with the pattern we have established in our last two group meetings, we will receive a ‘free will offering’ that will go towards evangelistic and benevolent outreach and this time the work supported will be in The Land.
Please contact us ASAP with any questions or concerns or if you have not yet sent your RSVP and intend on attending. Shalom – J&R

We will meet upstairs, above the Bluebird Cafe in downtown Stanford (where we have met previously). The Passover meal will be potluck.

Yeshua is Aleph and Tav

The quote below is a portion of a post from another site that appeared in our news feed this morning. The passage of Scripture referenced below, regardless of language, says what it has always said and points to Messiah Yeshua, the perfect image of The Invisible Elohim, the inseparable Word that was in the beginning, The Word that was with God and was/is Elohim, The One who came and will return to finish what was started. The quote below denounces the validity of Yeshua as the Promised Messiah. The sad reality of this post? This dear man can read the truth and still deny The One Who is The Truth. Please pray this dear man’s eyes will be opened to The Truth, his soul to be saved, and for spiritual discernment within our camp. Shalom

“This is one of the most exciting things I have ever discovered! It is a a Hebrew manuscript of the Book of Revelation in the British Library. I read about this 13 years ago, but was never able to see it for myself until now (thanks to T-bone). The passage in the photo is Revelations 1:8, which says in this Hebrew manuscript:

“I am the Aleph and the Tav, says Yehovah the Elohim. He that is, and He that will be, and He that will come, the Shaddai.”

Would you join me in shouting!

The manuscript is dated to the 17th century, but may have been copied from an earlier source. It is now published online at:

Happy New Year . . . almost . . .

Monday March 20th 2017 is the Vernal Equinox, or the first day of astronomical spring, based on the alignment of the lights in the skies (Gen.1:14). The first new moon after this equinox will mark the 1st day of the ‘beginning of months to us’, the first month of Spring, or Aviv (Exo. 12:2). The 14th day of this first month will the day of the Passover, which, on the Gregorian calendar, will be Monday April 10th, 2017. That evening will be the beginning of the 1st day of the week of Unleavened Bread. For 7 days we will eat unleavened bread, as a memorial for us to remember that in this time we were brought out of bondage. For those that are believers in Messiah Yeshua, it is a memorial of that which was purchased for us by His the work of on the cross, deliverance from sin and death unto freedom and life eternal. He is that ‘unleavened bread that came down from heaven’.
‘For if by His death we are reconciled, then by His (resurrected) life we are saved’. (Romans 5:10)
Halleluyah B’Shem Yeshua – Shalom –

Closing doors, opening doors . . .

We have been questioned concerning our reasoning for leaving Hebrew Nation Radio. It has been surmised by some that we have just become tired or ‘burned out’ as it were, and perhaps in need of a change. Although it was a difficult decision to make, none of these are the reason we have stepped away from the radio outreach. After decades of ministry, Rhonda and I have learned this truth – if we, in all our frailty and humanity, are faithful to His call, then, as one door is closed, our Father will open another.
Hebrew Nation Radio, like any group, is made up of people . . . good people . . . people from a multitude of backgrounds and ‘upbringings’ . . . different cultural backgrounds, different socio-economic, political as well as doctrinal backgrounds. And it is not necessary for us all to agree on everything to ‘get along’. Rhonda and I have enjoyed, for over two years, the opportunity to share the truth of God’s Word by the outreach of Hebrew Nation Radio, and we say ‘thank you’ to all those we have come to know and who have assisted us during that time.
We will still be available, as time permits, to travel and teach. And, as our Father opens new doors and new venues through which to minister and disciple, we will continue to teach based on the fundamental Scriptural pillars that we have come to understand are not negotiable and cannot be compromised. The preeminence and exclusivity of Jesus/Yeshua of Nazareth as The Promised Messiah, along with His Words, mandates and directives, are just a few of those non-negotiable pillars. He is more than merely an anointed man, priest, king or prophet. He Is the Dividing Plumb Line for all time and for all humanity. He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings. He is the One who, with full knowledge and understanding of what was to come, willingly went to the cross for me; was beaten more than any man and marred beyond recognition; they plucked the beard from His face. Yeshua willingly endured unimaginable pain, suffering and torment, and He did it for me and for all who would believe. For no one comes to The Father, but by Him. Shalom
