You may ask…
It is evident throughout history, as well as in our present generation, that God’s particular focus is on the Land of Israel, which inextricably is bound up with the People and the Scriptures of Israel, as well as His unfolding plan of Redemption for the nations.
“The Lord is zealous for His Land”…and so are we!
What can we, personally, do to participate with Him?
In three words: Learn…Do…Share, which is where His-Israel offers a link – a personal connection with the Land and people – as we share together and grow in understanding grounded on the following three major perspectives:
H-I-S Hebraic, Interactive, Scripture-based
H – HEBRAIC PERSPECTIVE
A vital component of all that God is restoring worldwide, and in particular to Christians who are seeking the vitality of the roots of their faith, is a paradigm shift in thinking through the understanding and appreciation of the HEBRAIC mindset. In other words, a worldview seen through a Judaic lens that was the view of Yeshua/Jesus and his talmidim/disciples.
As well as all the articles and material offered, we encourage you to browse the BOOK section to enjoy the Book Reviews and Audio books. Children’s books are reviewed and read to share with your kids or grandies – the best time to begin learning.
Also, enjoy the Hebrew ‘soul’ through the music selections in Music to My Ears.
The Hebraic perspective and understanding of Scripture is directly influenced by the vitally restored Hebrew language. We offer glimpses and highlights; also a series for Beginners – Hebrew Bytes – Yvrit Le’at Le’at (Hebrew Slowly Slowly!) that is based on the names of the weekly Torah portion. We encourage you to enjoy the language and to study further, to whatever degree possible.
I – INTERACTIVE PERSPECTIVE
With all you are learning, you now need to do something! Such as…
Become an ambassador for God’s Redemptive work in Israel for “a time such as this!” Find out clear, on-the-ground facts and information and find creative ways to share with others. We hope we can provide you with meaningful and friendly means to do just that.
- Come! The best interaction you can have with the Land of Israel is to visit and experience it if at all possible. Bring your gifts, the main of which is yourself, and receive the gifts Israel has to offer. There are a number and variety of tour groups available.
- Get in Sync with the Biblical Calendar!! In the light of the eschatalogical time in which we are living , it is spiritually and physically important, as well as edifying, to get in sync with our Father’s timeframe of the Hebrew calendar and actively to participate in the rhythm and flow of the Biblical Festival Cycle. Again…learn, do, share!
See Hebrew Months, Appointments with God and DIY Feasts for descriptions of the Annual Feasts and for practical, and fun-for-children, ways to celebrate and to incorporate them in a relevant and meaningful way with your family… and to be encouraged to share their meaning and enjoyment with others.
S – SCRIPTURE-BASED PERSPECTIVE
His Word is the Rock upon which we stand; that which will endure forever though all else fades (Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 1:20). The accurate and meaningful interpretation of the Bible, both the Hebrew Scriptures and the Apostolic writings, from the Hebraic perspective is vital to our understanding of His precious Word. To this end, please see relevant Articles and Torah portion overviews and the Psalms.
The Hebrew Scriptures are the common ground of meeting for both Christians and Jews and wonderful bridges are being built and opportunities given to mend the historic rift that was created through the past centuries. Repentance, forgiveness and healing only come through recognition, understanding, and reaching out in reconciliation.
We recognize that we each have our beginning in our Creator – God and that He is working out His Redemptive plan from the Beginning to the End. We can choose to work with Him, actively against Him, or to indifferently abstain.
An important consideration is that this be a safe meeting place. We therefore ask for respect rather than suspicion; for a willingness to hear and question and learn, and a preparedness to think and reach outside of one’s own comfortable box. Please feel free to make respectful comments and enter into honest conversation on the website. We all are on the “Continuing Quest” and it helps to share along the way.
Our Aims :
(1) To inspire thinking and ignite deeper spiritual growth, in His Word and by His Spirit. (Zechariah 4:6),
(2) To do all we do in the context of lovingkindness and truth, chesed ve’emet, and, with this motivation and in harmony with His Word…
(3) to fully stand with, and have His heart for, His Land and people, Israel, and for the full redemption of the nations.
We hope you will stand with us!
Le’maan Shemo b’Ahavah. For the sake of His Name in Love.
