The most common Hebrew word for thanks in the Old Testament is "yadah". It literally means "to stretch out the hand", and is used to convey the thought of thanks, praise, and confession. With the proper understanding of this important Hebrew term, we can see why Yeshua said to be "like little children".
As disciples of Messiah Yeshua, we teach the Hebrew path that He walked and His message of the restoration of the Kingdom of God.
the Priestly Blessing
In the book of Numbers, YHVH instructs Aaron and his sons to pronounce a specific blessing - His blessing - over the children of Israel. This blessing is often repeated by Hebraic and Messianic groups. What is the blessing about? Who is it for? Should it be repeated today?Learn More ...
Love Your Neighbor
What does it mean to love your neighbor as yourself? This phrase is thrown around quite often, but seldom in the Biblical context in which it was spoken. What did God mean when He gave this instruction to the Hebrew people, and why did Yeshua call it one of the 'greatest commandments'?Learn More ...
Finger of God
At various times in the Scripture, God gave His people signs to help them with their faith, to give direction, or to confirm their position as a leader. Is it wrong to ask God to give you a sign? The scriptures clearly shows that it is not. This teaching is wrapped into the story of the signs YHVH gave to the author while he was searching for the remains of his deceased brother in the Colorado desert.Learn More ...
the Good Way
The fall festival of Sukkot is about hope and restoration — restoring the kingdom of God and restoring the Good Way that YHVH gave the Hebrew people. By restoring the strait path of righteousness, Yeshua will rebuild the governmental system and society in which His people can fulfill their calling to be a light to the nations so that all mankind can have the hope of salvation.Learn More ...
We are living in times where the belief in the God of the Bible is no longer fashionable. Parents can no longer assume that their child's teachers and friends include God in their lives and lesson plans. In the face of the outright attack on religious values and priciples, what can parents do to help their children maintain the belief in the God of the Bible?Learn More ...
Hebrew Roots is an 'awakening' . . . a realization that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) meant what He said when He told his disciples that 'not one jot or tittle would pass from the law til all things are fulfilled'. Since most prophecy has yet to be fulfilled, those of us who live by His words believe we should fashion our lives after the Torah-observant example of Yeshua.
To put it in a nutshell - we believe we are saved by His grace, and that saved people will attempt to follow in the footsteps of their Saviour.Learn More ...
the Hebrew Walk
The Hebrew Walk can best be illustrated by a straight path that leads to the Mountain of God. Sin, on the other hand, is when you get off the path, which frequently leads you over a cliff and headed for destruction. The remedy for sin is 'repentance' which in Hebrew simply means to 'return' - as in 'return to the path'.Learn More ...
Faith is knowing that you don't walk the path alone - that God is with you, protecting and providing along the way.
Have you ever considered how you ulimately became aware of the Hebrew walk - the walk of Messiah Yeshua? How did this message finally cross your path and peak your interest?
No matter what your circumstance, one thing is for sure – you are here because you chose to follow the teachings of someone else. In fact, we have all chosen to follow the teachings and testimony of 15 Jewish men – the 12 disciples along with James, Luke, and Paul.
'Ami Yisrael' is Hebrew for 'my people Israel'. We take the words of God, Yeshua, Moses, the prophets, and Yeshua's disciples seriously. Thus when Paul said "... if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal. 3:29) we believe that applies to us. We are not trying to be Jewish, for the Jews are just a small part of the Hebrew people. Instead, we hope to pattern our lives after that of the Hebrew of Hebrews - Messiah Yeshua.Learn More ...
