Do you ever wonder what young people are thinking, or how to communicate with them? Pete Wilson has devoted much of his life to those questions. That is why this father of 7 (soon to be 8!) stepped into the role of Youth Pastor at Founded in Truth Fellowship in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We learn Pete’s story in part one of our three-part visit with him. If you have teenagers in your life, you will appreciate Pete’s insights!
Our musical guest is Rut Banks, bringing to us two special songs about her walk with Yeshua. Rut’s music introduces our Elders Barry Phllips and David Jones as they take up the topic of the Generation Gap in this week’s midrash.
Think about your high school and college years – whether that was 40 years ago, or you’re still there now. Was there, or is there, anyone who captured your attention and motivated you into a genuine, deep relationship with your Savior? Maybe it was a teacher, an evangelist, or a musician. Such a person would first have to be completely devoted to Yeshua (Jesus). After all, how could they motivate others into such a lifestyle is they didn’t already genuine have a genuine relationship with Yeshua – a relationship based on a solid life experience (testimony). Now imagine such a captivating evangelist who honors Torah and has embraced his Hebraic identity as part of the covenant nation of Israel. If you can picture such a person, you have an idea what to expect in Nathan Harmon!
Nathan is our guest in these next three shows, sharing his message of hope, redemption, renewal, and identity in Messiah Yeshua. He and his family carry this message wherever they go. Is this the next step in revival? That’s what we talk about in this high-energy interview!
Mark Webb returns in our midrash segment to continue the conversation he and Barry Phillips began several weeks ago on Signs in the Heavens. There are a number of celestial events happening now through the spring that indicate our God is up to something important in human affairs. You can see a video version of this midrash on Remnant of Yisrael at this link:
We probably won’t arrive at the place where God has finished working on us while we’re still in this life. His finished work is something we can anticipate when all is restored in the Kingdom. The real question, though, is whether we’ll finish this race better than we started!
MelanEE Lisa Davidson would tell you she’s not even close to where her Heavenly Papa want her, but she has made tremendous progress thanks to His love and grace – and a large measure of patience. The fact that she can tell her story and use her life’s experience to help others indicates just how much progress she has made. That’s what we hear about in this conclusion of our visit with her, along with the music of Mason Clover and Kelly Ferrari Mills.

Mark Webb is back in this show to continue his midrash discussion with Barry Phillips about signs in the stars. You can hear and see both parts of their discussion, “The Heavens Declare,” on Barry’s YouTube channel, Remnant of Yisrael:
In this midrash, Mark refers to the following star charts depicting the constellations on December 14, 2020, and January 20 and February 10, 2021:
Every testimony of redemption is improbable to some extent. Think about it: a person is heading down a certain path with no desire or ability to change – and sometimes even without knowledge that there is an alternative to the life they are leading – and then the Creator intervenes!
That is the reason Messiah Yeshua had to come to earth to take care of the deadly effects caused by our willful rebellion against the God Who made us. And then there’s MelanEE Lisa Davidson, whose testimony of redemption reaches to the high end of the improbability scale. Not only did she have no desire to depart from her “radical feminist lesbian dyke” lifestyle, she had told God in no uncertain terms that she wanted nothing to do with Him. Yet He stepped in anyway – and continued to step in even when MelanEE pushed Him away.
We hear more of this in our interview segment, the second of three parts of our visit with MelanEE. It’s a story not only of redemption, but of cleaning out the nasty things that had blocked the flow of living water in her redeemed life! Which, by the way, is something Will Spires and Solomon Lopez sing about in their musical offerings, and that Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in a midrash they call, “Digging Wells.”

Does God ever give up on anyone? If you ask MelanEE Lisa Davidson, she might shout, “Noooooo! I know that because Papa NEVER gave up on me!”
When you hear MelanEE’s story, you’ll understand why she can be so certain. This is a woman who rejected her Creator as a teenager, and then turned toward a lifestyle of radical lesbianism. Yet, as she explains in this three-part interview, God pursued her relentlessly. Not only did He redeem her, He carried her through years of struggle to overcome all the damage of her rebellious years. This is a story that will challenge you, but will leave you encouraged and in awe of what our blessed Heavenly Father will do to bring His children back.
MelanEE’s testimony is a fitting introduction to the subject of our musical selections by Barry Phillips and the Aleph Tav Band, and by Mason Clover. Barry also joins Elder Mark Webb in a discussion about the signs in of the times called, “The Heavens Declare.”
