Them Bones, Them Bones

A note to my readers: Obadiah’s Cave will be closing soon, and I will be moving many of these writings over to my Tekoa Manning site. The blog below was originally written in 2019 at Obadiah’s Cave. One of my favorite songs is by Jim Croce, “I got a Name.” When I was newly divorced, I would sing this song and think of my maiden … Continue reading Them Bones, Them Bones

Words: A Death Sentence?

There are many ways to say something and a season to speak and not to speak. Even the prophet Isaiah, who spoke for HaShem, cried out– I have unclean lips! Woe is me! Some of the righteous were stoned and beheaded due to their words, but they spoke them anyway. At the end of this blog, I will highlight Jeremiah and ask you, my readers, … Continue reading Words: A Death Sentence?

Free Chapter on Sickness

This is an excerpt from my book Doctrines of Demons Part One: When I was severely sick with a neurological disease and fibromyalgia, I attended a small congregation with a kind pastor. I noticed the pastor often looked at me, my cane, and my wobbly legs strangely. On one occasion, he prayed for me. It was a loud, boisterous prayer. “Lord, get to the root … Continue reading Free Chapter on Sickness

Prophetic Word for Elul–(Is it Evening?)

For shorter podcast/Video click the link below.   While studying and meditating during the month of Elul, I heard in my spirit that evening was here—that darkness comes before light. Now, this is something most know if they have ever read Genesis/ Bereshit Chapter one. “The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God … Continue reading Prophetic Word for Elul–(Is it Evening?)

The Voice of Hosea

​I heard the men whispering in the market. Suddenly one of them with piercing eyes was standing before me. “What is your daughter’s name, he asked?” I glance down at her angelic face before answering him. Lo-Ruhammah, (low—Rue-hay-ma) I whisper. “So it is true?” He says, his eyes intently staring at me. I stood up straighter, returning his gaze before answering. “Yes, her name is … Continue reading The Voice of Hosea

Beethoven and Kislev

Beethoven was born on December 17th, 1770. Right away, I noticed the sevens and looked up the date on the calendar for that year. His date of birth fell on the 7th day of Chanukah (Hanukkah) in the Hebrew month of Kislev. (Although Hanukkah always begins on the 25th day of Kislev, that date can fall anywhere between late November and late December on the … Continue reading Beethoven and Kislev

Go Home and The Five-Fold. Leadership Part VII

Once that book is completed the blog series will be deleted except for three or four blogs. I hope you are enjoying it, and I welcome any feedback. So far, during this blog series, I have taught without becoming too personal. This blog will be … Continue reading Go Home and The Five-Fold. Leadership Part VII

The Glass Blower, The Lamp Worker and The Crucible

The aged man named Joshua stepped carefully to the first oven with his ancient tools. He wore steel-toed boots and protective glasses. He knows that synthetic garments cannot be worn here because anything made of false fibers will melt. The heat from the oven warmed his face as he continued spinning the metal rod in a circular motion. He had great vision for his work … Continue reading The Glass Blower, The Lamp Worker and The Crucible

Stones and Leadership Part VI

Stones were more than likely the weapon of choice in the beginning. Cain murders his brother, Abel. Abel’s blood cries out from the ground, along with the blood of many more. We read of those angry at the words of Yeshua and they, too, pick up stones to cast at the Chief cornerstone. “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Therefore … Continue reading Stones and Leadership Part VI
