Even So, A Good Report

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 25:

Jeremiah 31, the chapter that contains the promise of a New Covenant, begins with this word of hope:

Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall take your tambourines, and go forth in the dance of the merrymakers. Again you shall plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant, and shall enjoy the fruit. For there shall be a day when sentinels will call in the hill country of Ephraim: ‘Come, let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.'” (Jeremiah 31:2-6)

This passage contains some surprises. First of all, it links the New Covenant of redemption to Israel’s restoration to the Promised Land. Second, and perhaps most important, this prophetic promise is being fulfilled right now!

Rabbi Moshe Goldsmith and his wife, Leah, bring a personal testimony of how this prophecy is being fulfilled. As long time residents of the Itamar community in the Shomron (Samaria), they live in the very place where Jeremiah’s words promise the planting of vineyards and the joyful return to Zion at the appointed times of the Lord.

But the sentinels of Itamar, and in other communities of Judea and Samaria (the region much of the world knows as the “West Bank”), often have less joyful reports to announce. Itamar has frequently experienced tragic losses since its foundation in 1984. Those losses include the entire Fogel family, murdered in their beds by Arab assailants in March 2011.

If life in Itamar is so dangerous, why do people stay there? That is what we will learn from Moshe and Leah. Expect a good report from the Land of Israel from people who know it well.

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.

Read Through the Bible with the Barking Fox – Reading Plan for 5778 (2017-2018)

bfb160919-read-meWhen Messiah establishes His kingdom on the throne of His father David, everyone will be surprised.  One reason is the thoughts and ways of infinite God are incomprehensible to mortal humans (Isaiah 55:8-9).  That is not necessarily a bad thing since our Heavenly Parent, YHVH delights in surprising His children.  Those who study the Word of God will always have an incomplete understanding of it, but their hearts will develop a readiness for the instruction of His Holy Spirit.  It is this teachable heart that will help these people adjust quickly to life in the Kingdom – just as the Scripture says:

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  (II Timothy 2:15 KJV)

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.  (II Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV)

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”  (Matthew 4:4 NKJV, quoting Deuteronomy 8:3)

In the interest of helping the people of YHVH study to show themselves approved unto God, The Barking Fox humbly presents the Bible Reading Plan for the Hebrew year 5778 (2017-2018).  This is the fourth year for our reading plan. Thanks to everyone who pointed out typos, omissions, and other errors in previous editions. Every year brings improvement because of you!

This is a Bible reading plan that goes through the entire Bible in one year through a combination of the Jewish and Christian approaches toward the Scriptures.

The Jewish approach is to read through the Torah (the five books of Moses) in weekly portions, combined with selections from the Haftarah, which are selected readings from the Prophets and other books of the Tanakh (Old Testament).  The Torah cycle begins after the Fall Feasts (Rosh Hashanah/Trumpets, Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, and Sukkot/Tabernacles), and goes through the entire year to the next occurrence of the Fall Feasts.  This year the cycle begins the week of October 8-14.  The Torah cycle is presented in daily portions as one would find in a Jewish or Messianic reading plan.  The Haftarah readings occur each Shabbat (Sabbath), with additional Haftarah selections for the Feasts appearing at those times during the year.

This plan also follows a popular Christian method of reading through all 66 books of the Tanakh and Apostolic Writings (New Testament) every year.  All of the Tanakh, from Joshua to Malachi, as well as the Apostolic Writings from Matthew to Revelation, appear as daily portions along with the Torah and Haftarah readings.  There is no intentional connection of these readings with the Torah portions, just a straightforward presentation of each book in the order they appear in the Christian canon.

If you are in search of an organized approach to the Word of God, maybe this can help.  Whatever you do, please do get into the Word so that it can get into you!

Forgotten No More

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 18:
Among those wise sayings of King Solomon is this one:
Do not move the ancient boundary which your fathers have set. (Proverbs 22:28)
Solomon took this word directly from a Torah commandment – a commandment that comes with a curse for those who choose not to abide by it (Deuteronomy 19:14, 27:17). Tragically, the record of human history is one of blatant disregard for boundaries. This edition of the Remnant Road probes into one of those violations of boundaries that occurred in the United States. In 1838, the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Seminole peoples were removed from their homes in the Southeast and relocated to what Oklahoma. It is an ugly chapter of American history, rightly called the Trail of Tears.
Jesse Running Bear is among many First Nations people who are raising awareness of the Trail of Tears to honor those who suffered dishonor in ages past, and to heal a breach that persists to this day. He and many others will gather on September 17 at Woodbury, Tennessee, to walk part of the Trail of Tears in a commemorative act of protocol. He returns to the Remnant Road to share his understanding of the awakening of the First Nations to regain their identity and the place of authority the Creator assigned them on this continent.
Hanoch Young will join us as well during our first hour, bringing another timely word from Israel. How does Israel connect with First Nations people in America? Listen and find out. You may be surprised!

What keeps people away from God? Is it fear? Apathy? Anger? Or is it that God’s people have more important things to do than be His hands and feet?

Seeking Higher Ground

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

Hurricanes are bad news. Or are they?

To those who have lost homes, property, livelihood, and loved ones, it is very hard to find anything good about a monster storm like Hurricane Harvey. A common question might be, “Where was God in all that?”

John McQuary can help us find the answer. He and his wife, Glenda, endured one of the worst storms that has ever come ashore in Texas. Their Houston neighborhood suffered severe flooding, and yet their home remained intact. John will explain, the Almighty’s provision not only during the storm, but in the years leading up to it, positioned the them in such a way to remain safe, and to begin coordinating recovery efforts as the flood waters began to recede.

This is a very special Remnant Road program. John’s congregation, Becoming One Stick in His Hand, is at the center of recovery work in Houston, even though many among them are also in need.

How can you help? And how could you help prepare for the hurricanes even now blowing in from the Atlantic? We will get John’s perspective on these and many more questions in our second hour, and in our first hour will have another first-hand report from Hanoch in Israel.

Diligently Teaching Our Children

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, September 4:

Children do not automatically develop a biblical worldview. Like all worthy endeavors, training up our children in the way they should go requires active participation, wisdom, effort, patience, creativity, and a large measure of fun.

This is something Tyler Dawn Rosenquist knows from her years of experience as an educator, author, and Mom. She joins us on The Remnant Road to share her insights about instilling Torah principles in young people to prepare them for life. Many of these insights have found their way into Tyler’s five books, the newest of which is Context For Adults: Sexuality, Social Identity and Kinship Relations in the Bible, Volume 3 in her Context For Kids series. Check our her Context for Kids website (http://contextforkids.com/), and her blog, The Ancient Bridge (http://theancientbridge.com/).

Tyler will be with us in the second hour. In the first hour, expect a continuing discussion by Mike, Barry, and Al about the context of Hebraic revival, and an update from the Land of Israel by Hanoch!

The bride of Mizoram

Margot Crossing has more “hands on” experience with an identified remnant of the “Lost Tribes of Israel” than anyone else I know. In fact, her son married into the tribe! In this story of the wedding, Margot relates the prophetic picture it presents. She also makes a very important point to all awakening Hebrews: “Don’t change sticks.” The nation of Israel is Jewish at its core, but the nation remains incomplete without the non-Jewish part. That is why the returning people of the House of Israel (known also as Joseph and Ephraim) cannot convert to Judaism. If we do, then the nation remains incomplete, and the promises of God remain unfulfilled.

Father is getting a bride for his Son from every nation, tribe and tongue. It is so acutely evident that he is doing so with the Mizo Tribe of north- east India.

25 As for husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the Messianic Community, indeed, gave himself up on its behalf, 26 in order to set it apart for God, making it clean through immersion in the mikveh, so to speak, 27 in order to present the Messianic Community to himself as a bride to be proud of, without a spot, wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without defect. 28 This is how husbands ought to love their wives — like their own bodies; for the man who loves his wife is loving himself. 29 Why, no one ever hated his own flesh! On the contrary, he feeds it well and takes care of…

What does Hebraic revival look like?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, August 28:
 The history of Christianity features periods of major revival, particularly in the last 500 years. One explanation of this is that revivals happen at times when God is restoring something His people have lost. The Reformation, for example, featured restoration of the Word of God as the Bible was translated into the common languages of Europe. The Great Awakenings of the 18th and 19th centuries emphasized repentance and holiness, transforming societies through such actions as the abolition of slavery and giving birth to the modern missionary movement. Then came the Azusa Street and similar revivals in the early 20th century, with their emphasis on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, followed by the message of evangelism in Billy Graham’s generation. In the last 40 years, intercessory prayer has developed into a global movement that has united Christians of many denominations around the world in a concerted effort to seek the heart of the Father.

So what happens when the next move of God is not associated with the traditional church?

That seems to be the case with the Torah Awakening. Multitudes of Christians are now beginning to understand not only the applicability of Torah to their lives, but also their identity as Hebrews. What are the implications of this awakening? And what will be the result when the focus of previous revivals – particularly the Holy Spirit, holiness, and intercessory prayer – combine with a desire to learn Yah’s ways and follow them in obedience?

Join us for what may be our most important discussion yet as Mike, Barry, Al, and Hanoch share their observations and expectations. You won’t want to miss this one!

A Woman Will Encompass (Eclipse) a Man

Here’s the best solar eclipse commentary I have yet encountered. Thank you, Kisha Gallagher!

GRACE in TORAH

“Set up for yourself roadmarks, Place for yourself guideposts; Direct your mind to the highway, The way by which you went. Return, O virgin of Israel, Return to these your cities. “How long will you go here and there, O faithless daughter? For the LORD has created a new thing in the earth—A woman will encompass a man.” (Jer. 31:21-22 NASB)

 Today, like many other Americans, I watched the moon eclipse the sun in a stunning show of light and darkness. Our special glasses enabled us to watch the sun mimic the moon’s monthly phases in a matter of hours– waxing and waning, or in this case, waning and then waxing.

In the hour leading up to the eclipse as the light decreased upon the land, we all felt strange — like we were in a dream. The air felt different and the temperature began to…
