Shabbat Shalom! This is the familiar greeting on the Sabbath amongst Jews and it means, 'Sabbath Peace'. I will be taking it easy on my blog tomorrow because it is the Sabbath and my attentions will be with my congregation, Beit Mashiach. Have a wonderful, restful and peaceful day in our Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. May His blessings be on you and your home and I will be seeing you on the other side.
1 Timothy 4:1-2 (ESV)
"Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared,"
Your conscience is your sense of right and wrong. It is not part of your mind but an element of your spirit wherein lies the presence of God in every believer. You conscience is very sensitive. Every child has a sense of right and wrong and a large part of our upbringing is about the responsible parent instilling the proper set of right and wrong within the hearts of their children.

Year’s ResolutionsYou May Want to Consider Making:
Don’t Imitate, Investigate!
“Be diligent to present yourself approved toElohim, a worker who does not need to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”
-- 2 Timothy 2: 15 –
have all heard of the “monkey see, monkey do” adage. But, did you know that it
takes very little intelligence to imitate and make what you hear, see, believe,
and ultimately propagate, look like the real thing while it is not?
