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!

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.

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.

Artfully Honoring Our Creator

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 2:

What is the basic instruction for living? King Solomon offers some advice:

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol where you are going. (Ecclesiastes 9:10 NASB)

That may not sound encouraging at first, but consider Solomon’s words in relation to something Yeshua said about our Heavenly Father:

Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him. (Luke 20:38 NASB

In other words, while we have breath, our lives should reflect the glory of our Creator. How do we do that? Yeshua has some advice on that also:

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33 NASB)

Seeing first His kingdom and His righteousness is something the Marlin family seeks to do. That’s what inspired them to establish Shalomstead, their family business in Edmonton, Kentucky. The Marlins are gifted artisans, offering hand-drawn images based on scripture passages which they can put on cards, prints, t-shirts, and other items. Michael Marlin joins us on this show to tell us how this family business got started, and how it has been a means to share with others the joy they find in glorifying the Living God even in the routine of everyday life.

Building Godly Families

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

As the people of Israel were establishing themselves in the Promised Land, Joshua issued this challenge to them:

“Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14-15 NASB)

Many centuries later, when Paul and Silas carried the good news of redemption through Messiah Yeshua to the city of Philippi. The book of Acts says that opposition to their ministry caused them to be imprisoned, but that their conduct caused their jailor to ask them about salvation. What happened next is instructive:

And they spoke the word of the Lord to him together with all who were in his house. And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household. And he brought them into his house and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, having believed in God with his whole household. (Acts 16:32-34 NASB)

These two passages contain two important features: both involve choices to serve the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and the people who declare their choice to serve YHVH do so with their entire families.

This is something we may have missed in modern times. Western civilization does well at emphasizing individual identity and accomplishment, but not so well at including the family as a unit. This is particularly true in spiritual endeavors. How, then, does an entire family serve the Lord? How does a family grow together in Yeshua, and in following the Torah given through Moses and lived out by Messiah Yeshua?

Chris Franke, Ephraim Judah and Daniel Musson have a vision to answer those questions through practical experience. That’s why they established Hebraic Family Fellowship in Norman, Oklahoma two years ago. Since then, they have sought to foster an environment in which the family as a unit can be a reflection of our Creator. How does this work? Listen to this edition of The Remnant Road and find out!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Going Up to Zion

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, May 14:

Where is the New Covenant written? In Jeremiah 31! There are many surprising things in that New Covenant chapter, such as this promise:

For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God. For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. . . Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. (Jeremiah 31:6-7, 10 KJV)

In reading this, one might get the impression that “New Covenant Believers” are people who look for Israel’s complete restoration.

Actually, that’s the truth! Jews have looked for the restoration of Israel for centuries, and the world has been amazed in the last 70 years to see that promise come into focus through the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Christians have looked for the restoration as well, but it is only in recent years that many have come to understand that they also are part of this covenant nation whom the Lord is regathering to become one people once again under Messiah Son of David.

So what happens when a group of people get so excited about this message that they form a congregation to proclaim this gospel of the Kingdom? That’s why we have asked Craig and Jan O’Dell to join us! In 2006, they joined with several others to establish Gates to Zion Ministries (http://gatestozion.net/), a Hebraic Roots fellowship meeting in West Columbia, South Carolina.

The O’Dells have much to share with us about the joys and challenges of serving a congregation focused on Israel’s Messiah and the restoration of His kingdom. One of those joys is going to Israel to meet and interact with the people and pray through the Land. Having just returned from such a trip, they bring a good report that you will be blessed to hear!
