Number 33 in the series Shabbat beShabbato

I have three questions about Leviticus 26:42:

  1. Why are the names of the forefathers presented in reverse order in Leviticus 26:42?
  2. Why is Jacob's name spelled with an vav?
  3. And why does it say HaShem will remember his covenant with Abraham and Jacob, but regarding Isaac, the Hebrew does not use the word  "remember."

This teaching demonstrates how the land of Israel is an important part of the final redemption and the coming of the kingdom. The blessings in Bechukotai are prophetic descriptions of the land of Israel in the Messianic Era.

Number 17 in the series Apocalypse of John

The plagues on Egypt foreshadow a future coming time of tribulation when God will judge the whole earth, as he once judged Egypt. This time, judgment comes on all the nations, as God redeems his people from the nations. Just as the redemption from Egypt began with plagues, judgments, signs and wonders on the earth, likewise, the final redemption will be prefaced by the same types of omens, calamities, and judgments, which Christians refer to as “the tribulation” and Jews refer to as the “Birth Pains of Messiah,” leading up to the conflict of Armageddon, the great war of Gog and Magog.

When did the disciples of Yeshua begin celebrating the festival of Easter? What's wrong with Easter?

Number 25 in the series Shabbat beShabbato

It's more than just a greeting. When we say "Shabbat Shalom," we are actually conferring a blessing for peace upon one another. This audio teaching, tangentially related to parashat Tzav, explores the concept of the Sabbath peace with reference to Yeshua's instructions:

When you come to the house, ask of it’s shalom. It will be that if the house is worthy, your shalom will come upon it, and if it is not worthy, your shalom will return to you. (Matthew 10:12)

Our Master Yeshua possesses the mysterious key of David, but what does the key of David unlock? This teaching about the message to the assembly at Philadelphia opens new doors of understanding and includes a glimpse of the prophetic new name for the city of Jerusalem and a new name for Messiah.

Number 12 in the series Apocalypse of John

What does it mean that Yeshua comes as a “thief in the night”? The assembly of disciples in Sardis had a false reputation for being alive.

This teaching explores Revelation 3:1-6 with emphasis on piety and connection to God in the practice of our faith.

Number 11 in the series Apocalypse of John

Revelation chapter two and the epistle to the assembly at Thyatira warns about a mysterious prophetess called Jezebel. Who is Jezebel of Thyatira, and what are the deep things of Satan which she taught? What does it mean to have a "Jezebel Spirit"? This teaching goes into the details of the Master's epistle to Thyatira, revealing a fascinating correlation to the Apostolic Decree in Acts 15.

I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. (Revelation 2:20)

Number 9 in the series Apocalypse of John

The city of Pergamum was one of the most famous places in the Roman world. In addition to a spas, hospitals, and a healing center there, the city boasted an enormous altar to the god Zeus. The story of Satan's throne in Pergamum and the martyr Antipas has a frightening corrolary in the modern world. Listen to a teaching on Revelation 2:13 to discover the meaning behind these cryptic references:

I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. (Revelation 2:13)

Number 8 in the series Apocalypse of John

Yeshua rebuked those who claim to be Jews but are not Jews, and he makes reference to the "synagogue of Satan." Who are “those who say they are Jews and are not Jews” who worship in a “synagogue of Satan”?  How do you know if you might not be one yourself? In this teaching, Pastor Lancaster presents an abbreviated version of his article "Synagogue of Satan," an article that appeared in Messiah Journal 113 and is to be included in the appendices of the forthcoming casebound edition of Torah Club: Chronicles of the Apostles.

I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9)

Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you. (Revelation 3:9)

Who were the mysterious Nicolaitans mentioned in the second chapter of Revelation? Why did Yeshua specifically condemn that particular sect? What did they teach and how did they begin? How do we know if we are Nicolaitans or not?  In this teaching from the Apoclypse of John, we follow the clues to unlock the mystery behind this obscure abberation on early Christianity:

Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. (Revelation 2:6)

The release of two stunning new statements, one by the Vatican and one by The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding & Dialogue (CJCUC) constitutes a Chanukah miracle and a “cease fire” of theological hostility which has characterized the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people for most of the last two thousand years. Listen to excerpts from the Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews’ new paper titled “The Gifts and Calling of God are Irrevocable” and the response from the CJCUC paper “To Do the Will of Our Father in Heaven: Toward a Partnership between Jews and Christians.”

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29)

Read both papers in full:
