A Matter of Perspective

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, September 3:

A nagging question at the heart of humanity is whether God is good. If He is good, why do bad things happen? More importantly, why do bad things happen to good people, or to innocent people, like children?

It seems that God anticipated such questions long, long ago. That is one of the points He makes in this word to the prophet Ezekiel:

“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? (Ezekiel 18:25 NKJV)

This brings up a very uncomfortable train of thought: is it possible we interpret many things that happen as bad because our perspective is limited? Maybe there’s more to the eternal meaning of life than what we can understand from the limitations of our present physical mortality. Paul apparently thought so when he wrote:

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. (1 Corinthians 13:11-12 NKJV)

Mike Neville has a similar train of thought. About 25 years ago, this engineer from Oklahoma lost his father, a man he loved greatly. Mike asked the Lord to tell him if his father was in heaven. The answer was a visit to the heavenly realms, where Mike found something he didn’t expect: a change in perspective. He describes his new perspective like this:

I look at our time on the earth as a time of temporary testing. When you look at the time of infinity, verses our time here on the earth, is so small it cannot even be measured. However since this is all we know, it is of great importance to us, (looking at it on our level).

We asked Mike to join us on The Remnant Road to explain what he can about this experience with the Creator that has shaped his life for the last quarter century. What lessons can we learn? Maybe a new understanding of what the Lord Himself said in that conversation with Ezekiel a long time ago:

Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!” (Ezekiel 18:31-32 NKJV)

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.

The Miracle of Purity

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, August 27:
Yeshua began the Sermon on the Mount with the Beatitudes – a list of characteristics one would expect to see in the people of God, as well as the promised reward for cultivating such characteristics (Matthew 5:1-12). The rewards are all appealing, including such things as comfort, satisfaction, mercy, inclusion in the family of God, inheriting the earth, and receiving the kingdom of heaven. However, the reward of seeing the Living God is promised only to those who are pure in heart. Why is that? Because in this, as in everything else he said, Yeshua was drawing from and explaining what the Word of God had said from the beginning. In this case, he was referring to something his ancestor David had written:

Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood
And has not sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord
And righteousness from the God of his salvation. (Psalm 24:3-5 NASB)

So what does it mean to be pure in heart? How does one live a life of purity? What are the trials of such a life, and the rewards? These are questions Dr. Jocelin Whitaker can answer simply by telling her life story!

Jocelin is a Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy, and a lifelong disciple of Messiah Yeshua. As a young woman, she determined to live a life of purity before her God, knowing it would be difficult, and not knowing how her choice would be rewarded. What she will tell us, though, is that the choice was worth it! She has endured many trials, but has also received considerable blessing, not the least of which are her husband, Marc, and her miracle baby, Yalissa.

Jocelin has sought to be an instrument of total wellness, which is why she embarked on the path of natural medicine and has studied Biblical methods of promoting and maintaining health. These natural and Biblical principles are the foundation of Whitaker’s Farm Market, the store she and Marc operate as a service to their community. These are the things Jocelin will share with us on this edition of The Remnant Road.

There Is Hope

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, August 20:
What would happen if businesses existed not to make money, but to enrich the lives of their customers and workers? Is that even possible? That sounds nice, but surely no one would think of doing such a thing.
Well, think again! Mike and CJ Cannon have taken that very step of faith with their business, Cannon Keepsakes (http://cannonkeepsakes.com/). They explain this in a short video:

We met Mike earlier this year when we invited him to share the story of Cannon Keepsakes and tell us about his family’s experience trying to honor to principles of Torah in their personal lives and business endeavors. Mike comes back to tell us what has happened since then, which includes a t-shirt giveaway program called “There is Hope” that is at the heart of their new business model.
What has motivated Mike and CJ to embark on this radical walk of faith? How long can they keep it up? What blessings have they seen, and what challenges have they faced? The answers may surprise you!
Don’t forget to visit Cannon Keepsakes to order your free “There Is Hope” t-shirt at http://cannonkeepsakes.com/there-is-hope/

How Women Shaped the World of the Bible

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, August 13:

!It is useful to investigate history from specific angles to gain a better understanding of the whole story. Women’s history is one of those angles. The events that shaped people’s lives and changed the worlds are still much the same as what we usually learn, but when viewed through the eyes of the women of the time, those events take on fresh, new meaning.

This is one of the valuable contributions Miriam Feinberg Vamosh has made to the study of ancient Israel and Judea. Her many books bring the world of Yeshua’s Judea to life for her reader. Her first novel, The Scroll, gives a glimpse of the troubled era between the fall of Masada at the end of the Great Jewish War and the Bar Kokhba Revolt in 135 CE. Miriam is now working on a new novel about the tragic story of David’s daughter, Tamar. (2 Samuel 13).

Why is the study of women in the Bible important? Miriam explains:

As seekers of inspiration from Scripture, we try to imagine ourselves walking a mile in the sandals of these female Bible characters, especially women of faith like Hannah and Ruth. Many of the strong women of the Bible, like the midwives Shifrah and Puah, the matriarch Rachel, or Queen Esther (and her predecessor, Vashti, for that matter) possessed the secret of finding power in a society that thrived on taking it from them. . . Delve into the stories of the women of the Bible and don’t be surprised to discover that in their stories, you’ll find your own.

This is the topic we explore with Miriam in this edition of The Remnant Road. She joins us from her home in Israel to share her passion for bringing the people of the Bible to life in ways that a modern audience can appreciate. We invite you to come along for the journey!

An In-Snyder Report

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

It’s not often that Mike, Barry, and Al find one another in the same place, but that’s exactly what will happen at the Rak Chazak Amats Conference in Snyder, Texas! Rak Chazak Amats (Strong and Courageous) is all about worship of the Almighty. The theme for this year, “Protocol of the Tabernacle,” emphasizes the ways our King has established to enter into His Presence. Mike and Barry, as well as Rico Cortes and Cole Davis, will be sharing their learning, and Will Spires and Exodus Road Band will lead worship. 

What do we expect to happen? That’s why we’re going to Snyder to find out! This show brings you our report on the conference, and our thoughts on what it might mean in the larger context of Messiah’s Kingdom!

What Did the Fox Say?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 30:

The Barking Fox is an odd name for a blog – especially one that has so much spiritual content. Why would anyone pick such a name? We have the answer on this edition of The Remnant Road!

Yes, our guest this week is our very own Al McCarn. You have heard him as host of the show for the last three years. Now you have an opportunity to hear his story. He’s talked about growing up Southern Baptist in Alabama, about his military career, and about his dog, Blue, but how did he get from there to writing and speaking about Torah? And why is he motivated to help others understand their Hebraic identity? What are his hopes and expectations about the prophesied restoration of all Israel under the reign of Messiah, Son of David? What is he doing about it, and what can you do to help?

Join us as Mike and Barry ask Al some penetrating questions. You might laugh at his answers, and you might cry, but you won’t be bored!

Celebrating His Great Love

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 23:

As Messiah Yeshua explained, the first and greatest commandment in the Torah is –

Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. (Deuteronomy 6:5 NASB; see also Mark 12:28-34)

Why do we love God? Paul gives us a very good reason:

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:6-8 NASB)

Although this is at the heart of Christian and Messianic thought, only experience will transform it from intellectual commentary to living truth. Yeshua explained this in a parable he told to Simon, a man who had invited him to dinner:

“A moneylender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they were unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?” Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.” And He said to him, “You have judged correctly.” (Luke 7:41-43 NASB)

Yeshua went on to emphasize the point, saying of the woman who had washed His feet with perfume while he reclined at Simon’s table:

“For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.” (Luke 7:47 NASB)

Melanee Lisa Davidson knows exactly what this means. She is living proof that forgiveness, healing, and restoration are available to all who humble themselves before the Lord and earnestly seek Him. It does not happen overnight, but it does happen.

Melanee is our very special guest on this edition of The Remnant Road. Some may know her as Mike Clayton’s cousin. After this interview, you will know her as a beautiful child of the Living God, made whole not only from years of gender confusion, but also from the root causes that brought her to such a lifestyle.

Do you think you’re beyond the Father’s reach? Listen to Melanee’s story. You just might find that hope you have needed for a long time.

Be A Button

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 16:

What has Will Spires been doing the last few months? Creating things!

As we would expect of an accomplished musician, Will has written a number of songs related inspired by our Father’s work in establishing His Kingdom. Those songs are featured in a new album which is even now in production , and a fitting follow-on to The Return, available at Key of David Publishing.

But that’s not all! Did you know Will is a gifted author? His first novel, T.S. 44: The Button Tree Prophet, is soon to be published by Key of David. This “coming of age” tale set in Columbia, South Carolina during World War II presents the story of a boy growing up with more than his fair share of hardship. The stories Will’s father told of his childhood serve as the foundation of a spiritual journey involving a button, a bus, an old sycamore tree, and a boy with a vivid imagination.

Want to know more? Tune in to our show on Monday, July 16!

Restoring Broken Lives and Lands

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 9:
In that parable about the Sheep and Goats, Yeshua specifies that those who find acceptance in the Kingdom of Heaven are the ones who show compassion and care for people in need (Matthew 28:31-46). As with everything else Yeshua taught, this is rooted in principles found in the Torah and the Prophets. Isaiah provides the context for this particular teaching:
Is this not the fast which I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free and break every yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, to cover him; and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light will break out like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth; and your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. (Isaiah 58:6-8 NASB)
Pastor Lee Horne has been living these principles for many years. His testimony speaks to the fruit of restoration when people of God sow into the lives of those in need. After finding salvation in prison and learning how to walk out the commandments of our Lord, he is now sowing the same life-giving seed into others in need.
That is the mission of The Restoration Ranch Ministry, a place of refuge Lee established on a farm in North Florida. The men who find a home at Restoration Ranch have been broken just as Lee was: homeless, in prison, and without much hope. Yet even as Messiah Yeshua brought new life to him, he is helping these men find their way to new life, and to the path of peace.
Expect great encouragement, exhortation, and blessing in this special visit with a brother who has taken our God seriously, and walked out His commandments in obedient faith.
