When we realize that the apostles were actually commenting on what Moses and the prophets wrote, the whole book comes alive in new and unexpected ways.

A Sure Sign of Doomsday?

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, July 24:

On August 21, a total eclipse of the sun will cross the United States from coast to coast. This doesn’t happen often. In fact, the last time was July 29, 1878 – and even then it wasn’t a coast-to-coast event.
What does it mean? Is this a sign of judgment? Or is it simply a remarkable celestial event we don’t want to miss?
Dr. Steve Ruskin is well qualified to talk about these questions. As a historian of astronomy, he is experienced at investigating celestial events. His latest book is America’s First Great Eclipse: How Scientists, Tourists, and the Rocky Mountain Eclipse of 1878 Changed Astronomy Forever. In it he documents the excitement of 19th century Americans as they traveled thousands of miles through what was still the Wild West just to see the eclipse. Listen as Steve compares the two events, and shares tips on where to see the Great Eclipse of 2017, and how to do so safely!

Virgin Birth in Torah – Random Groovy Bible Facts

It may be that the two most controversial aspects of Yeshua’s life are those at the beginning and end: his birth by a virgin mother, and his resurrection after death. Those of us who believe he is the Messiah, and that Messiah must of necessity be a manifestation of YHVH in the flesh, accept the truth of these two events. Those who do not accept his identity as the divine Messiah do not accept these two aspects of his life either.

But what if the Torah required that these two things be so? Would it make a difference if the Law, Teachings, and Commandments of God as given through Moses established the necessity of a Messiah who had come directly from God? Let’s set aside the resurrection for a moment and think about the virgin birth. The following study by Jeremy Chance Springfield presents a comprehensive and compelling case for a Torah-based requirement that Messiah be born of a virgin. Take a careful look and ponder this.


The Virgin Birth in Torah

Jeremy Chance Springfield
Originally posted on Random Groovy Bible Facts, June 1, 2015

The virgin birth of the Messiah is a doctrine heavily promoted in Christianity.  It is considered a foundational teaching about the Redeemer.  How odd it is, therefore, to find that almost exclusively, there is only ever one passage in all of the Hebrew Scriptures that Christianity brings forth to substantiate the claim that the Messiah must be born of a virgin woman.  That verse is found in Isaiah 7:14.

Picture

Most translations contain the term “virgin” in this verse.  The text actually uses the Hebrew term ALMAH, meaning “young woman,” and not specifically “virgin.”  It is with this detail that Judaism takes issue concerning the concept of a virgin miraculously conceiving and bearing a son who would be the Messiah.  The believer in the virgin birth need not be too entirely distressed at this detail of the meaning of the term, however, since every usage of ALMAH in the Hebrew Scriptures appears to be in a context of a young, unmarried female – a detail that would be assumed to refer to a virginal status in the Hebrew mindset.

Why Dylan’s faith is so misunderstood – Joseph Farah

What is the most significant indication that the Torah Awakening among Christians is becoming mainstream? How about when the founder and CEO of the world’s largest Christian web site publicly proclaims and acts on his opinion that the Torah (law, teaching, commandments) of God still apply to Christians?

That is the precisely what is happening with Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WordNetDaily.com, the internet’s largest independent news site. He has even written a book about it called The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians, and the End of the Age. Farah’s book will be featured in an upcoming review on The Barking Fox. For now, consider this piece Farah recently wrote about another well-known person with a surprising faith journey.


Why Dylan’s Faith Is So Misunderstood

Exclusive: Joseph Farah identifies key to unraveling the mystery of famed songwriter
Joseph Farah
Published in WorldNetDaily, July 6, 2017

I was blinded by the devil, Born already ruined,
Stone-cold dead as I stepped out of the womb.
By His grace I have been touched, By His word I have been healed,
By His hand I’ve been delivered, By His spirit I’ve been sealed.
I’ve been saved by the blood of the lamb …

— Lyrics to “Saved” by Bob Dylan

It’s amazing to me how Bob Dylan’s faith is still so misunderstood. Thirty-seven years after he wrote and recorded the words above, I still hear people talking about this superstar songwriter’s spiritual beliefs as if there is some ambiguity about them.

Maybe, some suggest, Dylan went through a Christian “phase” in which he wrote and recorded dozens of fiery gospel songs and then moved on to other pursuits.

Yet, only those who have not really followed his career since could possibility come to such a conclusion, because those songs have continued to be part of his performance repertoire for the last four decades, during which he has continued to produce dozens of new songs that leave little doubt about where he stands.

That’s why I was so excited more than a year ago to read the manuscript for “Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life” by Scott M. Marshall, one of the newest releases by WND Books.

As an admitted Dylan-phile, it had been a source of frustration for me for years that while there are many enigmatic qualities to America’s troubadour, there has been a rock-solid consistency to his publicly expressed view of God and man since 1979 when he released – to the shock of many of his fans – his “Slow Train Coming” album along with one of his biggest hit songs ever, “You Gotta Serve Somebody.”

And it was true, as the author of the new spiritual biography on Dylan shows, before that album. Dylan was searching for truth. Just look at the lyrics of one of my favorite, and shortest, Dylan songs before his “Christian period.” It’s called “Father of Night,” and he recorded it in 1970.

Father of night, Father of day
Father, who taketh the darkness away
Father, who teacheth the bird to fly
Builder of rainbows up in the sky

Father of loneliness and pain
Father of love and Father of rain
Father of day, Father of night
Father of black, Father of white

Father, who build the mountain so high
Who shapeth the cloud up in the sky
Father of time, Father of dreams
Father, who turneth the rivers and streams

Father of grain, Father of wheat
Father of cold and Father of heat
Father of air and Father of trees
Who dwells in our hearts and our memories

Father of minutes, Father of days
Father of whom we most solemnly praise

Dylan has written some of the most touching and powerful hymns of the 20th and 21st centuries – and people still don’t understand him.

Here’s the key to unraveling the mystery, in my opinion: Dylan was, is and always will be, a Jew. That’s the way he was born. He was, in the tradition of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, circumcised. He studied Hebrew so he could be bar mitzvahed. And, of course, he never renounced his Jewishness, nor did he need to.

That’s because Jesus was and is the Jewish Messiah. All of Jesus’ original disciples remained, throughout their entire lives, Jews. Some of them, including Simon Peter, were surprised to learn fairly late in their lives that this messianic faith they followed could be shared with non-Jews. All of the early “Christians” were Jews. And they were only “Christians” in the literal sense of that Greek term – which means followers of Messiah.

I have to admit that even I had doubts about Dylan’s spiritual journey back in 1983 when he saw his son, Jesse, bar mitzvahed in Jerusalem. At the time, many speculated that Dylan had “gone back” to Judaism.

Bob Dylan at the 1983 bar mitzvah of his son, Jesse.

It was only years later, as I studied the Jewish roots of my own Christian faith, that I realized this was a perfectly natural and appropriate thing for a messianic Jew to do. No Jew needs to embrace the “Christian” traditions and culture to follow their Messiah. In fact, I’ve come to believe those traditions and that culture can actually be a barrier and stumbling block for non-Jews who seek to follow the Jewish Messiah. They certainly were for me.

This is, in fact, the essence of my latest book, The Restitution of All Things Israel Christians and the End of the Age Christians and non-Christians alike are often confused by church traditions and the essential gospel message that brings all people – Jew and gentile alike – to the saving blood of the Lamb.

While he doesn’t like to give many interviews and he doesn’t seem entirely comfortable speaking publicly, I’m convinced Bob Dylan gets it.

Scott Marshall has done an amazing job comprehensively tracing Dylan’s performances, albums and interviews through the decades and showing there is a consistency in his devotion to God and His Son that cannot be denied. If you’re a Dylan-phile like me, you will find this book hard to put down. You will be surprised at how Dylan was treated by the church. And you will be appalled at the way he was treated by his fans when he embraced Messiah.

There are few musical superstars who rival Bob Dylan – as a songwriter, in fame, in longevity, in influence. This new spiritual biography will help you appreciate him even more.

Is America Beyond Hope?

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, July 10:

“Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn.”
Those are the words of Michael Snyder, a friend of The Remnant Road who has shared with us his valuable insights from his observations of world affairs during his previous visits with us. This time Michael drops in to talk about the United States of America – where we are now, where we are going, and what can be done to change the trajectory of the nation to something better for our children.
The real question is if there is hope for America. Michael has written much about this in his blog, The Economic Collapse, and in his books, The Beginning of the End, and Get Prepared Now. He has also investigated the spiritual elements of the question, not just for America, but for the world, in his most recent book, The Rapture Verdict.
You may be surprised at his answer. Far from ducking for cover to ride out the storm, Michael is taking action to make a difference for good. Find out what he’s doing, and how you can help, on this next edition of The Remnant Road.
The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn and Daniel Holdings, is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.

Nuclear Terror: 72 Years and Counting

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, July 3:

The world entered the Nuclear Age with America’s detonation of the first atomic device near Alamogordo, New Mexico on July 16, 1945. Ever since then, the fear lingering in the back of everyone’s mind is a nuclear holocaust. During the Cold War, that fear was fueled by the potential of conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. Today the sources of nuclear fears have proliferated to include rogue nuclear-capable states like North Korea and (possibly) Iran, and a host of non-state actors like ISIS and Al Qaeda who would gladly make use of such capabilities to achieve their goals.
Robert Gleason knows much about these frightening realities. His 30 years of research into the threat of nuclear terrorism and the possibility of nuclear annihilation have resulted in several books and a starring role in the History Channel’s special, Prophets of Doom. He joins us to share his observations, not only as an authority on the subject, but as a Bible scholar with insights on what the Scriptures have to say about this present Nuclear Age.
Expect another fascinating conversation on a topic that impacts all of us!

Raging Against the Machines

We had a great conversation with Dr. Bob Marks yesterday, June 26 on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio. Here’s your chance to hear it again!

What is the truth about Artificial Intelligence? Is it possible that machines could one day displace humans and rule the world? Or is this another case of fear mongering by those who don’t really know better?

Today’s guest does know better, so we will ask him these hard questions. Dr. Robert Marks is a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Baylor University, specializing in Computational and Machine Intelligence. You may remember him from Ben Stein’s movie, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. Dr. Marks was one of the “expelled” scientists – in his case, his university shut down his research web site in response to complaints that he endorsed Intelligence Design, the idea that the presence of life on earth is a the work of a higher intelligence rather than the accident of spontaneous evolution.

Dr. Marks comes to The Remnant Road to talk help us understand the truth about AI. What it is, how it will affect us, what we should be concerned about, and what is just hype. Join us for a very informative conversation, and later check out Dr. Marks’ Evolutionary Informatics Lab web site at www.EvoInfo.org.
