But I have installed My king on Tzion, My holy mountain!
Psalms 2:6 (The Israel Bible™)
וַאֲנִי נָסַכְתִּי מַלְכִּי עַל־צִיּוֹן הַר־קָדְשִׁי
Hear the verse in Hebrew
VA-a-nee na-SAKH-tee mal-KEE al tzi-YON har kod-SHEE
Who is the anointed one of Israel?
As opposed to Psalm 1 which heralds the ‘man’ who walks in the ways of Hashem (God), Psalm 2 is directed to nations and kings, rebuking those derelict peoples who reject the Lord and seek to destroy Israel. The Sages suggest various possibilities to explain to...

Happy Friday from Washington, where the actions of key FBI officials “cast a cloud” over the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton, according to a sobering report by the Justice Department’s inspector general. Fred Lucas hits the main points. The nation shouldn’t water down its standards for granting asylum, David Inserra argues. Should NFL players accept President Trump’s latest offer? Jarrett Stepman thinks so. Plus: Katherine Rohloff on a blunt response to crime in Britain, Victoria Robinson on fathers...

Blessed is Hashem from Tzion, He who dwells in Yerushalayim. Hallelujah
Psalms 135:21 (The Israel Bible™)
בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה מִצִּיּוֹן שֹׁכֵן יְרוּשָׁלִָם הַלְלוּ־יָהּ
Hear the verse in Hebrew
ba-RUKH a-do-NAI mi-tzi-YON sho-KHAYN y’-ru-sha-LA-im ha-l’-lu-YAH
The Meaning Behind the Name Yerushalayim
Why did Hashem (God) choose Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) as His resting place?  In Genesis, Avraham (Abraham) was asked by God to sacrifice his son, to prove his allegiance to the Lord. This profound test took place on a mountain which Avraham called “Adonai yir’eh,” meaning ‘on the mount of Hashem there is vision,’ or ‘the mount...

May there be well-being within your ramparts,
peace in your citadels
Psalms 122:7 (The Israel Bible™)
יְהִי־שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ שַׁלְוָה בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ
Hear the verse in Hebrew
ye-HEE sha-LOM be=KAY-laych shal-VHA be-ar-me-no-TAY-ech
Feeling the Bible
Sefer Tehillim, the book of Psalms, is first and foremost a shining example of biblical poetry. This genre conveys the word of Hashem (God) in a different medium than narrative; it focuses not on what one reads or hears but rather on what one feels and intuits. The Bible...

Yerushalayim, hills enfold it, and Hashem enfolds His people
now and forever
Psalms 125:2 (The Israel Bible™)
יְרוּשָׁלִַם הָרִים סָבִיב לָהּ וַיהוָה סָבִיב לְעַמּוֹ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד־עוֹלָם

How to Achieve Wholeness
The Hebrew name for Jerusalem, Yerushalayim (ירושלים), incorporates the word Shalom, ‘peace.’ And the root of Shalom (שלום) is shalem (שלם), meaning ‘whole’ or ‘complete.’ People fight with one another because they are not whole, and are not at peace with themselves. Once one is able to achieve...

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
This psalm starts with the words sha’alu sh’lom Yerushalayim, (pray for the well-being of Jerusalem). Shalom, translated here as ‘well-being,’ is the first Hebrew word many people learn. It actually has three meanings: ‘hello,’ ‘goodbye’ and ‘peace.’ It is the word with which friends greet one...

"Has he met the Real Jesus?" by Chip Brogden

Posted May 22nd, 12:00 by Sealed by the Spirit on Christian Living


I was reading a review for a book written by an apparently well-known theologian and seminary professor.
The book is praised because the author is so brutally honest about the sins and addictions he has struggled with unsuccessfully for 40+ years.
I appreciate the man's honesty, and I do empathize with his struggle, but I have to wonder...
Has he met the Real Jesus?
After all, Jesus came to DELIVER US from our sins.
Not just to deliver us from the PENALTY of sin, but...
