Honoring the Dead

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, June 18:

King Solomon shares a sobering understanding about death:

For the living know they will die; but the dead do not know anything, nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten. Indeed their love, their hate and their zeal have already perished, and they will no longer have a share in all that is done under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 NASB)

Resurrection is coming, but there is little that we know about what happens between death and resurrection. All we can say is that the dead and the living have no interaction. Why, then, is it important to care for someone who has died?

Theresa Bates began to address that question when she was with us earlier this year. She has learned much about the Jewish approach to the dead. While that does include protocols for assisting those who mourn the dead, it also includes protocols for the departed themselves. Helping people understand these protocols is one of the purposes behind Theresa’s ministry, Peaceful Passages. As she says,

The emphasis of what we are doing is to bring honor, integrity, and respect to the many aspects of the end of life. The goal is to help the death and dying process to be one that brings respect and peace to one’s end of life. We also want to be able to bring a spiritual comfort to those who seek it.

Theresa’s visit with us will be a continuation of the conversation we began several months ago. There are still many questions we would like to ask her, and that she would like to answer. Some of them may even be questions you had not even though to ask. This is a sensitive topic, but one that touches everyone. That’s why we appreciate Theresa’s loving devotion to this important part of our humanity.

The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young 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.

Blowing a Trumpet in Zion

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, June 11:

Is Judgment Day scary? Yes! No one should be under any illusions about that. Scripture is filled with dire warnings, such as this from the prophet Joel:

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. (Joel 2:1-2 KJV)

How should we approach the Day of the Lord? With sober minds, of course, but also with hopeful expectation. After all, it is the day when the Creator sets everything in order. The scary part is that He will do this according to His definition of order, not according to any of ours! The wise will seek to understand the Lord’s ways, and remain humbly teachable so that He may bring loving (even if painful!) correction instead of wrathful judgment.

Raymond Myers, the “Singing Tallit,” has been seeking to understand the Lord’s ways for most of his life. He has also done his best to live out what he has learned, and to share it freely with others. As a gifted musician, he puts many of his Scripture-based observations into music, which everyone may access on his YouTube channel.

But that’s not all! Ray has a degree in Philosophy which, oddly enough, has equipped him to understand the cultural influences not only on our perceptions of the Scriptures, but on their development and application, particularly in the First Century Greco-Roman-Judean world. This, too, is something he shares freely, not only on his YouTube channel, but on his web page (https://www.singingtallit.com/).

Ray joins us from South Georgia, where he and his wife have opened their home to many children, both their own and foster children in need of loving care. Our visit with him likely will go in many unexpected directions, so listen carefully as we take our next journey on The Remnant Road.

A Quiver Full

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, June 4:
Can we put a price on the blessing a child brings into a home? Many of the parents we know would say their children are beyond any price. This is consistent with what the Psalms say about them:

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 NASB)

The Smith family of Blue Ridge, Georgia, certainly have a quiver full. You see them in the picture: in the front row, from the left, Lucas (13), Abbe (16), Isaiah (3), EliYah (9), Kenny (7), and Jasmina (5). Audrey (15) is standing behind and to the right of Abbe. Their parents are Kenny and Renee (the gentleman with the long white beard and the beautiful lady in pink next to him).
Standing with the Smiths are the Boyatt, Covert, and Cribbs families of the Exodus Road Band, people who have played a big role in their story in recent years. Not with them in this picture, but very much present in spirit, is YoshiYah, the beloved son who passed away not long ago at the age of 9.
It is a tragedy to lose a child, but as Kenny and Renee Smith explain, the tragedies of life often bring unexpected blessings. These blessings flow out from the immediate family to touch many in their community, and beyond. So it is with the Smiths. One arrow, pulled from the quiver seemingly before his time, continues to hit the mark and bring multiplied blessings to his family and to those around him. What does that mean for YoshiYah’s brothers and sisters? How has the family coped with this and many other trials? That is what we will hear from Kenny and Renee on this powerful edition of The Remnant Road.

Picture of the Week 05/29/18

Yes, the sign of Jonah indicates the amount of time between Messiah Yeshua’s death and resurrection, but there are other important things about this sign that we may have overlooked.

Memorial Day Special

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, May 28:

Memorial Day this year was April 18 in Israel. In the United States it’s May 28. Both nations honor those who have laid down their lives in defense of their homeland on these special days. Israel’s observance is much more solemn than the American Memorial Day traditions, but it is an opportunity to spend time with family. That’s why we will not have a live show this week.

Don’t worry; The Remnant Road will still be on the air! We have been blessed with many fascinating guests this year. Two of them will be back again later in the summer, so it seemed good to share once again our earlier visits. Can you guess who they are?

Oh, and you might find a surprise or two in this prerecorded edition of The Remnant Road!

Counting the Omer 5778/2018 #50

Counting the Omer is keeping the commandment to count 50 days (seven Sabbaths plus one day) between the offering of the first fruits of the barley harvest (often called First Fruits) until the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) (Leviticus 23:15-21). This year The Barking Fox is counting the omer with modern pictures of places named in the Bible.

How to Enter the Gate of the Lord

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, May 21:

Here’s an uplifting excerpt from the Psalms:

Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord;
The righteous will enter through it.
I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
And You have become my salvation. (Psalm 118:19-21)

We all want to enter His gates, but have we thought about the proper way to do it? There is a protocol; even Yeshua talked about it (see Matthew 22:1-14). Maybe we should take a closer look at the scripture and find out more.

It just so happens that our guest this week is making this subject a priority this summer. Greg Crawford of Covenant Ranch Ministries in Snyder, Texas, joins us to talk about Rak Chazak Amats (Strong and Courageous), a conference happening this summer which is all about worship of the Almighty. The theme is “Protocol of the Tabernacle” – something Mike Clayton knows a little about. In fact, Mike, along with Barry Phillips, Rico Cortes, and Cole Davis are the featured teachers!

Join us as Greg explains the story of Rak Chazak Amats, and shares something about the Kingdom work happening in the Wild West!
