Esther…and Concealment

Posted by on Mar 11, 2017 | 0 comments

We all know the story – have read it a hundred times – is there anything new in there? Let’s see if we can look back in time and dig a little deeper shall we? Setting aside all the nuances of Esther and Haman and Mordechai and the King, let’s look at a layer that is right there before us, but glanced over for what we deem to be mystical and spiritual. Now I have everyone’s attention – yes? What don’t we know about this Queen? Well, first of all – this short excerpt will barely scratch the surface but we will scratch anyway. It will then be up...

Going and Coming

A great message by Skip Moen – if you enjoy his teachings, please make sure to join us in August where he will be speaking in Kansas City, MO!   Going and Coming by Skip Moen, D. Phil. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever. John 14:16 NASB Another helper – We all know this Greek word, Paraklete, “the Helper.” Growing up in the Western Church, we were told that this is a circumlocution for the Holy Spirit. This verse in John is typically used to establish the person of the Holy Spirit, the “other” helper who will come after Yeshua...

A New Purim

The megillah (story) of Esther (hidden star) will be read throughout the world by many of the Jewish faith next week to remember the festival of Purim. A fast was called to open the doors of heaven for a miracle during that time. The story line was about an egotistical, arrogant adviser to the king, named Haman, who devised a plan to exterminate all the Jews in the land of Persia (which is modern day Iran). The unlikely hero of the story was a young Jewish girl named Hadassah (a myrtle branch) who was called upon by her uncle Mordechai to go before the King, against protocol and intercede...

Ezer Kenegdo in Kansas City in August by Skip Moen, D. Phil. Thanks to Sandy Smail, Pam Staley and Jane Diffenderfer, I will be speaking in Kansas City on August 18-19.  This conference is about the ‘ezer kenegdo, the foundation of all relationships.  We will examine the Genesis text, Paul’s use of these ideas in the apostolic writings and what we have learned since the publication of Guardian Angel.  We will also have some hands-on exercises to help us apply the concepts.  The role women play, and the blessing they are for their husbands, is vital.  Don’t miss this! Sandy tells me that...

Guardian Angel: A postscript

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 | 0 comments

Guardian Angel is a terrifying book for men. It shouldn’t be, but it is. And not for all men, it seems. Some men just get it. Their relationships with their wives are on such solid footing that they recognize the blessing a wife can be and they welcome the biblical validation. But not most men. Women, on the other hand, read Guardian Angel and feel comforted. They realize, sometimes for the first time, that their instincts for nurturing, care, protection and correction are godly, purposefully designed into the very fabric of who they are as women. They read Guardian Angel and feel empowered....

Chava, Eve, Helpmeet ~ What’s in a name?

So many various names that have been given to the first woman created by the Holy One of All Creation – what’s in a name? Well, we are going to go a little bit deeper here and see exactly what IS in a name! As we study out the various words (cause words mean something you know!) we will discover a wealth of information contained within the descriptive language the Holy One breathed upon that first feminine creation whom He extracted from the man Adam. We will find out that the word helpmeet is a poor translation for such a deep well of richness from the original Hebrew word...
