In Part One, I added the disclaimer/paragraph below at the blog’s beginning to help my readers think about traditions with more clarity. “What is a tradition? Webster defines it as: an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior (such as a religious practice or a social custom) How many traditions do we read our Messiah keeping? Several, and I will name a … Continue reading Traditions, Prophets, and the Month of Elul Part #2
This message concerns the Holy One’s prophets who were deemed madmen and at times labeled babbling fools. These were peculiar men. These were men whose voices boomed at times. Men who called down fire and shut up the heavens. Men on missions. I will tie this message to the 9th of AV and, as always, try and end with hope. Again and again the … Continue reading Madmen
There is nothing worse than a dead tree. Dead trees attract pests and termites. Dead trees carry disease that spreads to other trees. Dead trees may fall and cause damage, but what about dead hands? Withered hands? It has been a while since I have written about the 5-fold structure mentioned in the Torah and the Newer Testament by Paul (Sha’ul). In this writing, we … Continue reading A Body with a Withered Hand– 5-Fold

It opens the eyes of the people who have lost their first love to return to the Father. Nathan was the … Continue reading A Nathan Calling–Anointing

“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith” (Hebrews 13:7). Before we look at mentor-ship, I first want to reiterate Part One and Two of this blog series and discuss more concerning the five-fold that was set up by Adonai. This type of foundation should be in place for unity … Continue reading The Five-Fold and Accountability–Part III
This week I want you to meditate on what it would be like not to use your thumbs for a day ( try it) or possibly be deaf to sound. Shove cotton balls in your ears if you must. Picture being led by someone because you’ve lost your vision. Think of a time when you broke a bone and couldn’t use a limb. Picture the … Continue reading Breaking the Five-fold is Breaking the Torah–Titles and Leadership Part II
