Would Jesus Want People to “BELIEVE IN” Him or “BELIEVE” Him?

What is the difference between “BELIEVING IN” Jesus and “BELIEVING” Jesus? Which would Jesus want Christians today to do? How does one little word “IN” change everything? How does it affect the quality of life for not only the 2 billion Christians in the world, but that of the other 5+ billion people they share the planet with? How does the “IN” affect the very meaning of what a Christian is, what a church does and what being a Christian nation means?

This is the single most important question that individual Christians and members of churches must answer – and they need to do ASAP! Why? Because the “IN” determines what Christians Value the Most & Where they Focus their Actions.


Church memberships have been in a steady decline for years, but Christianity is still one of the largest collectives in the world – and without question the largest in America! If just 3 Christians out of 10 decide “BELIEVING” Jesus is the answer and acted together – their impact would be tremendous on individuals, families, neighborhoods, cities, companies, educational institutions, government institutions, financial institutions, etc. Membership in their churches would explode!  Read the complete newsletter (PDF) by clicking here

The Real Yeshua Shabbat Torah Readings for 02/06/16

One of the first conflicts in the Yeshua Movement after the crucifixion was over the question of whether Gentiles should be required to convert to Judaism before they would be able to become members of the Movement? The famous Jerusalem Council of the apostles and elders ruled that they would not be required to convert, but they were required to follow these laws (Acts 15:19-21):

(1) abstain from things polluted by idols

(2) abstain from sexual immorality

(3) abstain from things strangled

(4) abstain from blood

(5) keep the Shabbat by going to synagogues; listen to the Torah being read and discussed

Follow the Torah Reading Schedule every week and learn the Scriptures that Yeshua and his Jewish followers heard every week in their synagogues. Look for references to them in the teachings of Yeshua and discover his interpretations. The readings for February 6th are:

Exodus 21:1-22:25 + Jeremiah 34:1
Exodus 22:26-23:33 + Isaiah 49:3
Exodus 24:1-18 + Isaiah 60:17-61:9

Why the Real Yeshua?

Why the Real Yeshua? The answer is because believing as usual is no longer an option. Over the past few years, I have written a lot about the “Real Yeshua” and have been asked why I don’t call him “Jesus Christ” instead? Today, I would like to share some of the most important reasons. The first reason I call him “Yeshua” is “Jesus” wasn’t his name. No one ever called him “Jesus” until around the time Columbus discovered America that Christians. So, that’s the reason I call him “Yeshua” and I think he would like for everyone with Belief Systems that focus on him to do the same. Wouldn’t you agree? Another reason I call him the “Real Yeshua” is because of how my readers would react if I used the name “Jesus” in the things I write. It is essential for each of us to understand how the human mind works. It has protection systems that functions like firewalls on computers and smartphones.

Going to the Synagogue with Yeshua

The fact that many of the accounts about Yeshua recorded in the Synoptic Gospels were originally meant for Jewish readers becomes very clear as you learn more about the Late Second Temple Period and Jewish culture of the first century CE. What the biblical text says is very important, but for non-Jewish readers to fully grasp what is taking place, it is often more important to learn what the text doesn’t say. The reason the authors left those things out is that their intended audience clearly understood them and therefore there was no need to repeat them. About twenty years after Yeshua was crucified, a controversy took place concerning non-Jews who wanted to be members of the Yeshua Movement. Some of the members insisted that non-Jews must convert to Judaism and be circumcised in order to join. Others disagreed. Read the complete article or download it in PDF format at – CLICK HERE.

TZADAQAH the Most Important Word of the Real Yeshua

TZEDAQAH (righteousis a very important word in the teachings of Yeshua --  “. . . but the righteous (will go) into eternal life” (Matthew 25:46b). In Matthew 25, Yeshua used "righteous" to describe those who fed the hungry, clothed the naked, gave drink to the thirsty, visited the sick, etc. Today, most Americans use the word “charity” to describe acts such those. There is a far cry between the meanings of TZADAQAH and CHARITY. Make sure you know the difference and please share this with others so they will understand the cornerstone message of the Real Yeshua.
