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.

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.
