Rosh Hashanah and the Mourning of Muharram

The Brotherhood of Man I have written in the past, concerning my understanding of the shared ancestry of Jews, Christians and Muslims (Arab) through Abraham, as described in the Bible. On Monday, I posted about the significance of Rosh Hashanah for Christians.  This morning, I noticed that one of my calendars showed Rosh Hashanah and a Muslim […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (December 2015)

Tuesday, December 15, 2015.  I haven’t posted an update in a couple of months, perhaps because three deaths in the family occurred recently. And, while the passing of these three individuals, my youngest sister, one of my brothers-in-law, and the mother of a different brother-in-law, I would like to share the beautiful way that God is […]

A Word for Those Who Lay Awake at Night Wondering What Tomorrow May Bring

The Sheep of His Pasture

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life.” (John‬ ‭10‬:‭27-29‬ KJV) The Christian walk can be a difficult one.  We, naturally (that is to say, the “natural” man in us) want to do our own thing.  But, the new Spirit man in us […]

To My Jewish Friends

Before Yeshua, Gentiles were godless people, or worshipped false gods, which are no gods.   “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV) But now, true Christian believers worship the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whose […]
