Revocation of Israeli Rights

Posted Jun 9th 2009, 05:58 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

This news was just released by the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, a ministry who counsels and defends Messianic Jewish concerns.  This bill, while seeming to address potential threats from the Arab population, it can be used against Messianic Jews who made "aliya" - became citizens.  The Law of Return allows anyone who can prove their Jewish-ness through their mother's line is granted citizenship.  There are those who claim that a "conversion" to Christianity deems a Jew no longer a Jew...and...

Christianity Today Article

Meanwhile, Ron postponed meeting me last Sunday saying that he had to visit a friend, but we would meet the next day. Well the next day has never come! Sadly this is typical of Israeli youth. I kept hoping.... But he has read the book.

New Moon Testimony - Pentecost tonight!

Posted May 28th 2009, 06:06 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

And when the day of Pentecost had  fully come....
Did you ever wonder what Luke meant by "fully"?  Wonder no more.
The feasts always started at the beginning of the day, which according to God's calendar is at sundown.  Thus in Israel, the country "closes" down by about 3 PM as people rush home to be with family and friends, ready to welcome in the holiday.  Each of God's feasts is actually a Sabbath rest.
The holiday continues until sundown the next day.

Trying again!

Posted May 24th 2009, 01:43 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

After two attempts at getting together with Ron and the other Israelis, we are meeting tonight (Sunday).  As of Friday, he had only 30 more pages to read.  That's amazing to me!
Yes, he has lots of questions and continues to be interested.
Please pray that NOTHING will interfere with our  meeting tonight and that I'll be able to share the Gospel with boldness and clarity.
Thanks. j

A new testimony

Posted May 19th 2009, 09:08 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

From Barbara:
When you talked about the whole world coming together at the same time to celebrate the feasts, it was  exciting.  But then you said  to imagine that people would be celebrating in different time zones...which means there will be 24 hours of continued worship!  Awesome.
This is so of the Lord.  Praise Him!

Update January 2009

Posted Jan 25th 2009, 08:18 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

Gratitude and loving appreciation to each of you who have held me close to your heart in prayer during the recent Gaza “activity.” Although I would have preferred to be there, God had me here – in Oregon. Please don’t think of me as brave or a hero, being separated from the Land I love during a time of crises is most difficult. But as a friend recently said, “Someone is always waiting on the other side of...

HANUKKAH - The Rest of the Story

Posted Dec 18th 2008, 08:33 by Novea Ministries on Christian Living

Hanukkah, or the Feast of Dedication begins at sundown on Sunday, December 21st.  Like most  people, I didn't know the real story behind Hanukkah.  It was only when I began to study how Jesus celebrated the feasts, that I learned the "rest of the story."
Here is an excerpt from "Celebrate Jesus" to set the record straight. 
The Feast of Dedication was Jesus' last public declaration of His diety.  As recorded in John 10:22, the issue wasn't the clarity of His...
