Who Is The Church?

Who Is The Church? by Christine Egbert The first time I heard a preacher say, “The church is not a building. It’s the people,” I thought it was insightful, and it was. But this insightful comment would’ve been unnecessary had ekklesia been translated correctly in the first place. Strong’s dictionary defines ekklesia as “a calling out, a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation or...

The Yearling & Greek Manuscript #472!

The Yearling & Greek Manuscript #472! by Christine Egbert Ask most Christians how long Yeshua’s ministry was, and they’ll assure you it was 3 ½ years. But was it? In Exodus 12:1-5, Lord Yahweh instructed Moses that on the 10th day of the 1st month, each family was to select a lamb they would keep...

Moral Law? All Of God’s Laws Are Moral!

Moral Law? All Of God’s Laws Are Moral! by Christine Egbert Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “moral law” as: “a general rule of right living; especially such a rule, or group of rules, conceived as universal and unchanging, and has the sanction of God’s will, of conscience, of man’s moral nature, or of natural justice revealed through human reason.”  HUMAN...

Which Is Biblical? Easter Or First Fruits?

    by Christine Egbert I’m so thankful that Yeshua’s mercies are new every morning, for renewing our mind, through washing it with the water of His WORD, doesn’t happen over night. It’s a process. Our awesome God is long-suffering, and His goodness is what leads us to repentance. One of the many thing I...

Who Are The Lost Sheep Of Israel?

by Christine Egbert In Matthew 15:24 Yeshua told a Canaanite woman with a demon possessed daughter that he was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. But because of that woman’s great faith, Yeshua healed her daughter anyway. But have you ever wondered just WHO those lost sheep of the House of Israel were…and who they...

No Longer A Gentile!

No Longer A Gentile! by Christine Egbert Have any of your friends or family members ever ridiculed you for keeping the biblical 7th day Sabbath, Lord YHVH’s Feast Days, or for eating only what God’s word says is food? Did they tell you that those (biblical) commandments found in the Torah are only for Israel?...

A Tale of Two COVENANTS

A Tale Of Two Covenants  by Christine Egbert To get the most out of our Bible study, we should study the Hebrew Scriptures at its “cellular level”, those 3 letter roots.  Pastor Matthew Miller teaches at this level on a regular basis. Most of this article is from one of his teachings titled, “They Saw...

Why Easter Is Celebrated With Rabbits, Dyed Eggs, and Ham.

by Christine Egbert In this article, we’ll examine the traditions of Easter and where they came from. The extra-biblical book of Yasher, which is mentioned in Joshua 10:13, informs us that after Cush (Noah’s grandson through Ham) died, Cush’s wife Semiramis married their son, Nimrod. In Genesis 10:8-10, we learn that Nimrod became a mighty one in...

Was Yeshua A Carpenter?

WAS YESHUA A CARPENTER? by Christine Egbert Was Yeshua a carpenter? I used to think so, but I don’t anymore. This is why. Psalms 118:21-22 says, “I will praise you, for you heard me and have become my Salvation (Yeshua). The stone which the builders rejected has become the head stone of the corner.” The Hebrew...
