In Jewish thought, depression is seen to be one of the most dangerous and destructive forces in our spiritual lives. It is a curse that cripples us. Depression can rob us of our ability to love and serve God and others. We are in the midst of the Purim season, which is supposed to be one of the happiest times on the Jewish calendar. It’s a time of great simcha (celebration). Joy is to abound during this holiday and the entire Hebrew month of Adar. Esther 9:22 refers to this time as “the month which was transformed from sorrow to joy.”
What is Thanksgiving? It is so much more than a holiday—it’s a lifestyle for Followers of Yeshua – Jesus! Being thankful when things are going well in our lives is one thing, but “always”? “In everything”? The Apostle (and Rabbi!) Paul gave clear directives to those early believing communities. He expected thanksgiving would be a constant among them, even when enduring challenges. Frankly, this seems a bit idealistic, don’t you think? How can believers be thankful all the time?
We have to ask: what is the Hebrew name for God? A deep dive into God’s name reveals not just who He is but how that reality affects our lives. How should we live now that we know God to be the Father revealed in Yeshua? This is why our journey deeper in God’s Word matters: it calls us to a new way of life.
It’s almost certainly no exaggeration to suggest that the most infamous number in all scripture is “666” (see Rev 13:18). Two foundational points need to be established to reach a deeper understanding of this biblical number. The FIRST issue is the symbolism or meaning of the number six. In Hebraic thought, six is the number of man (Adam was created on the sixth day) specifically, and the number of the whole of the physical realm generally.
What is your role in experiencing breakthrough in your life this year? – Aligning for breakthrough with Rabbi Jason Sobel – Most people want to experience “the good life.” What that is, exactly, differs from person to person. As followers of Yeshua, we know that He is both the essence of the good life and the way to it. As the Lord said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life! No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). However, the fruitful, abundant life God promised us is not a given. Therefore, we must sincerely and humbly seek first His Kingdom (Matt 6:33) and abide in Yeshua (John 15). One word embodies this seeking and abiding: alignment. Alignment occurs as we surrender to God’s grace in every area of our lives.
What do I mean by, “No Shalom for the Wicked”? Join me, Rabbi Jason, as I walk through a passage of Scripture many Christians relate to the Lord’s Second Coming. The insights and revelation on the “days of Noah” will guide you as you endeavor to live a life of holiness and favor in your generation.
Friends, we’re not merely biding our time—God created the world and we’re essential participants in God’s incredible redemptive work! Genesis 1:1 holds the keys to this mystery
