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.
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.

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.

God Made Women to Be . . .

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, March 19:
 

The human tendency over the past 6,000 years is to relegate women to a lesser status than men. Is that biblical? It seems to be so according to the practices of the church and synagogue – practices that have carried over into Messianic and Hebrew Roots faith communities. But is there another set of paradigms here that we should examine with fresh eyes? We have learned that many things in our inherited cultures and traditions do not exactly line up with God’s intent. If we overlooked something as fundamental as which day of the week God set aside as His own, perhaps we have also missed something about gender roles and relations.

This is why we asked Kelly Ferrari-Mills of Doorkeeper Ministries (https://www.doorkeeperministries.com/) to join us on The Remnant Road. We present two interviews with Kelly in this prerecorded show. During the first hour, she shares some very special moments in her life that have a direct application to Israel’s restoration. This is a deeply moving conversation, featuring Kelly’s account of her wedding to her husband John, her ministry to elderly saints, and more.

In the second hour, we talk about the biblical role of women. There appears to be a contradiction in Scripture about women. The Bible features many women in prominent roles – even roles of power, wealth, influence, and authority over men. That is the impression we receive when we consider women like Deborah (Judges 4-5), Huldah (2 Kings 22:11-20), Joanna (Luke 8:1-3), and Lydia (Acts 16:14-15). Yet the Apostle Paul instructs women to be silent and not to have authority over any man (1 Corinthians 14:34-36; 1 Timothy 2:11-15). Is this really a contradiction? Kelly presents some excellent commentary on this subject which you will want to hear and evaluate for yourself!

By What Authority?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, March 12:
 

Moses and Yeshua share much in common, such as the way their fellow Hebrews questioned them. Moses faced the question, “Who made you a prince or a judge over us?” (Exodus 2:14) Several centuries later, Yeshua was asked, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” (Matthew 21:23)With that kind of connection, it should be no surprise that Yeshua referred to Moses on another occasion when the leaders of the day questioned him:

Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:45-47 NASB)

This question of authority is one that Steve Moutria has investigated recently in the process of building a new teaching series for TorahFamily.org. The series, called “Before You Deny Him,” investigates questions about whether Yeshua is the Messiah. You may be surprised that Steve’s inquiry starts not with Yeshua, but with the very foundation of what YHVH’s people define as their authority.

How do we know what we believe is true? That’s where we begin our visit with Steve in what promises to be a challenging conversation intended to strengthen your faith in the Word of God and the God of the Word!

What Do the Young People Think?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, March 5:
It seems that the voices most frequently heard in this journey through life are those of older folks. Or maybe it’s just that older folks tend to listen more often to themselves rather than to younger voices. This is sad. In fact, the reluctance of elders to listen to the youth is just as damaging to society as the reluctance of the youth to listen to their elders.
The Bible has a few things to say about that. Paul, for example, says to Timothy, his protégé –
Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:12 NASB)
Having studied Scripture all his life, Paul certainly drew on the word given to the youthful prophet Jeremiah –
Now the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then  said, “Alas, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, because I am a youth.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ because everywhere I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 1:4-8 NASB)
So what exactly do young people think these days? Specifically, what do young Messianic people think?
That’s what we would like to learn from Danielle Kerr, a young writer, mom, and devoted follower of Yeshua. Her blog, Our Youthful Thinking, presents the observations and insights of this rising generation confronted with a world changing beneath their feet. How do they perceive this world? What do they understand about the faith of their parents, and do they see hope in it for themselves? What do they need and want from their elders? And what keeps them from making the impact they desire to make in this world?
Join us in another pivotal conversation as we welcome Danielle to The Remnant Road.

From Feast Days to Everyday

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, February 26:
What are the practical applications of living a Torah observant life? This question is harder than it seems. Consider what Yeshua said to the religious leaders of his day:
For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others (Matthew 23:23 NASB)
Those “weightier matters” of justice, mercy, and faithfulness are what centuries of sincere Christians have tried to live out, with varying degrees of success and failure. Yet now we have a Torah Awakening that is opening our eyes to the other part of Yeshua’s instruction: “these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.”
It’s those “other things” that are so puzzling. It may start with conscious efforts to observe Shabbat (Sabbath) and the Feasts of the Lord, but how does this Torah-honoring lifestyle work for people who are not used to it?
Mike and CJ Cannon don’t have all the answers, but they are asking the questions and doing their best to share what they have learned. These founders of Cannon Keepsakes have built a business on Torah principles. Not only that, they are active in connecting with other Torah-observant families and business owners in the interest of helping one another find the right way forward.
Mike Cannon joins us on this edition of The Remnant Road to tell us their story. How did they start on this path? What adjustments have they made? What are the pitfalls they have encountered? And what joys and blessings have surprised them along the way?
This is one of those practical discussions that you will want to hear!

Land of Poverty?

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

The average monthly salary for a person in the United States is $3,214.22.* The average salary in Israel is $2,583.51. The average Israeli is already starting out with a net income at least one-fifth less than his or her American counterpart, but that might not be a problem if the cost of living is less.

But it isn’t.

Some things cost less, but many everyday items cost much more. Gasoline, for example, is $2.35 per gallon ($0.62 per liter) in the US, but $6.48 per gallon ($1.71 per liter) in Israel. Then there is clothing: a pair of jeans costs $41.48 in the US, but $90.06 in Israel. Running shoes are $73.34 in America, but $122.20 in Israel. And a nice summer dress from a good store? An American would pay $34.31, but an Israeli $56.73.

The statistics go on like this. It’s hard enough imagining how to make ends meet if one is gainfully employed, but what about newly arrived olim (immigrants)? How do they get along as they struggle to learn the language of their new home? What if they are refugees who have arrived with nothing? What if they’re not refugees, but still have families to feed and clothe in one of the most expensive countries in the world?

This is reality in Israel. We think of it as the Holy Land of Promise, and it is exactly that. However, it is not easy living there. That’s why we asked Jessica Katz to be our guest on this show. Jessica is the Director of Yad Leah, a volunteer organization dedicated to collecting and distributing clothing to Israelis who need it. This may seem like a small thing, but as she will explain, meeting the clothing needs of a struggling family makes a tremendous difference in their ability to survive and thrive.

This is a story of hope. As you listen to it, you will begin to realize the depth of poverty in Israel, and the transformative power of clothing.

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.

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!

So we’ve learned about Torah. Now what?

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, April 10:

The Messianic/Hebrew Roots Movement exists because people are realizing that their relationship with Yeshua (Jesus) grows deeper when they begin to learn and apply Torah (the (Law, Teaching, and Commandments of YHVH). This is a paradigm shift from the traditional Christian understanding many Hebraic people have practiced for much of their lives. Sadly, what usually happens is that the paradigm shift makes it difficult to remain in a traditional Christian setting, which means Torah followers leave the church – and the fellowship, community, and other good things the church has to offer. The result is a growing number of isolated disciples of Yeshua who are increasing in their biblical knowledge, but missing out on the greater experience of the Body that our Messiah and His Father intended from the beginning.

What is the remedy? Chaim Goldman has a suggestion. For 20 years Chaim has been laboring to restore the divisions in the Body of Messiah through his work at Repairing the Breach Restoration Ministry. Now he is launching a new ministry: Hebraic Home Fellowships, a Kingdom-minded organization with a mission, “to help the Messianic/Hebrew Roots movement grow globally in number, maturity, and impact, as a support network that encourages community through the creation, promotion, health, and proper stewardship of independent home fellowships.”
Does that sound like something that fills a gap in today’s Messianic/Hebrew Roots Movement? Yes, it does! Join us as we ask Chaim about his experience in this movement, and how the vision for Hebraic Home Fellowships came into focus.
