Picture of the Week 11/21/17

God wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. He created laboratories for us to learn how. They are called families.

A Revolutionary Turn, Part 1

This is the week that the world turned upside down.

No kidding. It’s the week of what may be the most significant set of anniversaries in modern history. In previous shows, we have talked about the number of important anniversaries happening in 2017. What we haven’t mentioned before today is that many of them happen this week. Consider this list:

  • October 31, 1517: Beginning of the Protestant Reformation, a shaking of Christianity that is still going on today, and which has had incalculable impact on the Jewish people and the restoration of all Israel.
  • October 31, 1917: Battle of Beersheba, when the Australian Light Horse led the way in defeating the Turkish Army and opening the road to the liberation of Jerusalem a few weeks later.
  • November 2, 1917: Balfour Declaration, in which the government of Great Britain committed to the establishment of a Jewish homeland, opening the way for rebirth of the nation of Israel a generation later.
  • November 7, 1917: Beginning of the Russian Revolution, which eventually led to creation of the Soviet Union – a historical process that eventually resulted in the return of hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews to Israel at the end of the century.

Al and Barry discuss all of these events and more during the first hour.

In the second hour, we welcome Frank Houtz of Winchester, Kentucky, to talk with us about a crucial topic summarized in this passage from Isaiah:

It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall be your dread. Then He shall become a sanctuary; but to both the houses of Israel, a stone to strike and a rock to stumble over, and a snare and a trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. (Isaiah 8:13-14 NASB)

Is this passage about Messiah, or God, or both? Why is there confusion? And why is this important? That is what we asked Frank to address. In his experience as a co-founder of Congregation Beit Minorah, Dry Bones Restoration Company, Kentucky Covenant Education Corporation, and Jefferson College at Pilot View, and as an Elder for B’ney Yosef North America, Frank has had ample opportunity to study the different approaches to the Scriptures and to Messiah from the Jewish and Christian/Messianic perspectives. What may surprise you is not what each side believes, but why and how those beliefs developed – from the same sources!

This topic is so big and so important that we will have Frank back next week to continue the conversation!

You will also hear an update from Mike Clayton from the Connect to Israel Tour. As with everything else in this particular show, the news he brings is something that could (and probably will) turn the world upside down.

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.

What Are These Young People Really Thinking?

Aside from all the technological wonders that absorb today’s youth, how are they different from older generations? Very different – and very much the same. This millennial generation is living in a world that has changed radically since the youthful days of their parents and grandparents, but they, like every generation before them, still faces the same challenges of entering adulthood and defining how their world should be shaped. Thus, while the specifics may be unique, the underlying reality is just as Solomon said:

That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one might say,
“See this, it is new”?
Already it has existed for ages
Which were before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10)

With Mike and Hanoch in Israel leading the Connect to Israel tour, Barry and Al begin the show with a conversation about inter-generational relations. Is there really an insurmountable gap between the rising generation and their parents and grandparents? What makes them unique? How can they find their way, and how can the older generations help – or at least not hinder them?

Cole Davis of On That Day Ministries joins us in the second hour to take the discussion to a new level: what are the spiritual dynamics intertwined with this millennial generation? The conversation takes a highly important turn as we examine how these spiritual dynamics are at work even now in Hebraic believers. In the pursuit of Torah knowledge, what have we left behind – and at what cost?

This may be the most important conversation we have yet had on The Remnant Road. You won’t want to miss it!

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?

If we are more focused on doing what God says, then we’re less focused on gratifying our own desires.

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.

Did you ever have anyone tell you they can’t see why you believe the way you do? Maybe the real issue isn’t what you believe, but Who you believe.

On the Road with Chaim Goldman

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, June 12:

Chaim Goldman is back! When we talked with him several weeks ago, he had just launched Hebraic Home Fellowships for the purpose of helping the Messianic/Hebrew Roots movement grow globally in number, maturity, and impact. How has HHF progressed in the vision to encourage community through the creation, promotion, health, and proper stewardship of independent home fellowships?

That is what we want to find out from Chaim. He is ready to tell us how the Kingdom First Leadership Training is developing. This flagship program is designed to help leaders and facilitators of home and small group fellowships. How is the first iteration of KFLT progressing?

Chaim and his family are also about to embark on a ministry tour across the US. With an itinerary that stretches out for several months, it’s quite possible that they will be in a town near you!

Don’t expect to slide into the Kingdom of Heaven on someone else’s coattails. Messiah’s tzittzit, yes, but coattails, no.

How Repairing the Breach changed a man’s life and marriage | natsab

Here are some questions for all those Hebrew Roots believers out there: What caused you to begin digging into the Hebrew roots of your Christian faith? What tools did you find to help you in this journey? Did you have any trouble finding someone or something that could answer your hard questions? Do you suppose there are others who are coming along this same path a few steps behind you who are just as desperate for some help?

Remembering my own journey is what motivated me to help my friend Pete Rambo put together his book, Repairing the Breach. He did such a good job that I had no hesitation writing a positive review of his work. (If you want to know what Repairing the Breach is all about, check out my review on Amazon.com.)

Now Pete has responded to another nudge by the Holy Spirit to get this important work out to a much wider audience.  The opportunity is with World Net Daily’s affiliate, World Ahead Press, but he needs our help to do it.  That’s why Pete has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the publication.

Why is this important?  And why should you consider taking part?  Read this testimony of the impact Repairing the Breach has already had on one family –  


How RtB changed a man’s life and marriage

I listened a few minutes and realized his wife was ‘all in’ and he, not understanding even basic Hebraic thought, was here to protect her.  Later, I found out she was fervently praying for him and was happy that he had even come to dinner.  His plan, as I understood it, was to not participate at all.

My passion is to compassionately and clearly explain what we believe, and why, from the Scriptures.  I have a Masters of Divinity and ten years of experience in the pulpit of a Presbyterian church, yet the Father opened my eyes and showed me much more than the Reformed traditions I was reared with.  When this gentleman we were providentially seated next to mentioned his Presbyterian background, I had my opening.
