    Friday 14th of October

    Some years ago we had a prisoner die while we were in the prison for ministry, we decided something had to be done so we made an agreement with government, they would provide nurses, we would build a clinic/sickbay for prisoners to be treated. This Friday we had the official opening with government officials present and a lunch for all included all the prisoners. Matthew25v35/36:”I was in prison and you visited me, I was sick and you looked after me”

    At the prison we have build a clinic for the prisoners. As all the prisoners are in one big room, sickness comes in and spreads quickly, even prisoners die because of bad circumstances. For that reason we made a deal, we would build a clinic or sickbay and they would provide two nurses. Today students from the Bible school came to paint the inside and outside.

  5. I love that you use a shofar, menorah, & tallit to help keep your teachings more culturally & historically correct. However, why teach the resurrection as “Easter” which makes it out of context with Scripture? Why not teach it as the Scripturally appointed time of First Fruits that directly follows the celebration/commemoration of the Passover?

    “Easter” is known throughout the Christian & Catholic world as a day separate from the Hebrew foundation & therefore separate from Israel. Many who celebrate “Easter” do not seem to understand that believers are grafted into Israel through a covenant made with Israel as revealed in Jeremiah 31:27-38. They do not seem to understand & look forward to the future fulfillment of Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, & Sukkot. Are they His? I am not The Judge, but I know for sure that The Messiah of Scripture is the First Fruits of the resurrection to eternal life as laid out per God’s “calendar” of His appointed times. There is no good reason to separate Him from His Hebrew root.
