The Unofficial Israel Tour-Mt. Carmel

Mt. Carmel is the sight of two significant stories in the Bible. The first is the face off between the prophet Elijah and the prophets of Baal in the Old Testament. The other is in the future with the battle of Armegeddon.

Worship . . . is meant to celebrate the coming of Christ (Advent); the birth of Christ (Christmas); the manifestation of Christ as the light of the whole world (Epiphany); the impending death of Christ (Lent); the events of his last week (Holy Week); the resurrection (Easter); and the coming of the Holy Spirit (Pentecost). These are the kairos events for Christians that give meaning and significance to our day-to-day lives in the world.

-Robert Webber, Worship Is a Verb: Celebrating God’s Mighty Deeds of Salvation, Second Edition

Pentecost Sunday ends the extraordinary season that began on the first Sunday of Advent. In approximately six months the church has been carried through all the saving events of God—his incarnation, manifestation to the world, life, death, resurrection, and ascension as well as the coming of the Holy Spirit. All these crucial events form faith and the spiritual life. . .

The Unofficial Israel Tour – The Western Wall

The Western Wall is famous all over the world. We have all seen the pictures of people praying and inserting written prayers into the wall. However, there is story in the gospels about Jesus’ temptation that also took place at the “highest point of the temple”. Let’s visit the Western Wall.

Joy in the Morning

My friend, Dan, gave me a book to read this year.  I’ve added it to my daily morning readings.  It’s called, “The Book of Mysteries” by Jonathan Cahn, who is a messianic Jew.  It’s set up like a story.  A man goes out to learn from a teacher in a small school in the desert.  Each day is another lesson from the teacher.  One of them connects with our theme of joy…let’s check out the “Night and Day Paradigm”.  If you’re been listening to Pastor Denny’s teaching for very long, it will sound familiar…

Worship Stories: Moses

This time of year, we look to the same God as Moses.  The one who said I WILL BE WHO I AM is with you.  The one who said He would be EMMANUEL, is GOD WITH US!  This season, remember that the same God who promised to be faithful to Moses, to Israel, is faithful to you.  He is the the one who lit the bush, the mountain and the Bethlehem night skies on fire and who came as a baby to live with you.

Worship Stories: Abraham&Sarah

Once upon a time, there was a “man of the road” and a “man of faith”.  His name was Abraham.  We see that he came to worship by faith alone and was given blessings from God.  However, these blessings weren’t for him alone.  He was blessed so that he could be a blessing to others…

Worship Stories: Cain&Abel

Worship in Wilderness after Eden always involves death. First, there is our death from sin and then the death of Jesus…but as we’ll see in this story…the blood of Jesus speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
