Izzy here. Starting this Thursday night at 7 CST, Derek Leman is starting a new series of live classes on the "Theophanies of God in the Jewish Bible" - and the first class is free and open to all! Join us and invite a friend, right here.
Derek describes the new series thusly. "Theophanies in the Jewish Bible. God appearing on earth, even in human form. Translating texts such as God walking in Eden, visiting Abraham with two angels, wrestling with Jacob, appearing in the burning bush, resting on Mt Sinai, dining with the elders of Israel, showing the Glory to Moses, filling the Tabernacle, and many more."
Derek has been quite enamored lately with being a 'Hebrew geek' - he even has a new website where he helps people become Hebrew geeks, see for yourself here - so I had fun going through his most recent live class looking for his nerdiest pose. Do you think this one works?
See you this Thursday at 7 CST!
Norma is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story.
I started following Yeshua since childhood in the Catholic religion. That's where I was baptized at three years old and made my first communion at age 11. To tell the truth I had a very beautiful experience despite being in these religions as it were.
Thus, even for a few years, two very nice ladies taught me the Bible being of Yehovah´s witnesses. I remember I used to say: Look, all that time in this landscape God has in store for you, were some people having a picnic. I think being referred to the millennium. I also said: Yehovah knows and knows everything about you, what's your name and how many hairs you have.
I always knew that God lived in my heart because I could feel alive in my whole being. I always knew that I was a child of God. It was different from the rest of the world, I do not delight in evil.
Although we all have evil, ones who really are sons of God are always being rebuked, correguidos and guided by the Father in His ways really.
Now I am almost 30 years old and I can tell you of an endless number of things that the Father has done for His love and misercodia in my life. I could face my past many giants thank God.
When I met Yeshua it was through a prayer group of women we had every Thursday in Jalisco Guadalajara, Mexico. There was where Mr. transfomo my life radicalamente. After having gone a couple of years, God restored my life through prayer and His Word and could have given up snuff. I started smoking since age 12 to 24, so at that point had already been half my life smoking. The fact bottoms for my addiction to this habit was so great that only a miracle could make me give up this, and that's how it was.
My desires to know the whole Bible was immense. In fact I put a challenge, and this was to begin reading the entire Bible. I started in Genesis for 3 months, then Exodus going on and I already felt very strong espiritualemente and it was through this that I could declare that it was Yeshua who allowed this miracle to happen in my life.
Based on this provision that had Mr. I found once in a vision - dream - and this was explicitly - a gold letters saying, I am your Father, You are my daughter. I will fulfill all of your heart’s desires and will keep until the last of your days. When I woke in the morning to go to work was the happiest day of my life. Because I knew the Lord from that moment had control about absolutely everything that happened in my life. I was not alone, that I would sustain any problem.
I was also aware that the letters were appearing one by one and then erased after having read them, were Hebrew letters. They were golden color and the background was black, and had light shone. They were living letters. It was Yeshua. Definitely I knew this was God talking to me!
Praise the name of the Lord.
I started to serve Yeshua in a children's room on Saturdays for two years. After that I changed my residence here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico Jalisco, and found this Christiana inglesia where I collaborated with them three years teaching English classes voluntarily.
No doubt that serving the Lord with a devoted heart is the most beautiful thing that can exist in the universe, and we were made to understand that created for Him. My testimony today was that Yeshua gave me an identity, a new life. I married on Saturday, August 15th, and I thank the Lord for everything you do in my daily life.
Last year I started learning some letters of the alphabet. Then I was getting further in Hebrew culture and the study of the Torah, I realized that the Christianismo where so many years I had no clear basis in their faith, now that genuine only is the Torah - though this still congregandome in this church and little by little the Lord allows me to share about the only truth that exists for every human being - and its precepts. psalm 34:27
