╫ The Moses Model of Evangelism: The Power of the Spirit - Torah Portion: Names [PODCAST]

1/17/2020
More
What if I told you that the first and perhaps one of the most complete evangelistic models laid out in the Bible by God for us, is actually found in what we call the "Old Testament"? Many forget that Moses was one of the first and greatest evangelists. God gave Moses the methods, and later Jesus (Yeshua) would implement the same even more powerfully in His ministry. So to walk as Yeshua did, we need to start at the beginning with Moses at the burning bush. There we will unravel some of the...

╫ Many Christians, Few Disciples | You Need The Holy Spirit [PODCAST]

1/13/2020
More
Why does it seem that I always talk about the Holy Spirit & spiritual gifts? In this video, we will talk about why we need the Holy Spirit working in our lives every single day, what it has to do with love, and what it means for our walk with Jesus as a disciple. Unfortunately, sometimes there has come a divide of what we call a "Christian" today, and what a disciple is. Somewhere along with history, things went wrong. So what would it look like to be a first-century disciple of Jesus and...

╫ Speaking in Tongues Q&A's: Can We Pray For Others in Tongues? and more... [PODCAST]

1/10/2020
More
As a followup to the Speaking in Tongues series, we received many awesome questions! In this teaching, I answered the most commonly asked questions we received, especially in relation to the "do's and don't's" with regards to the gift; and how to responsibly exercise it in a public setting. Some of the questions featured: 1. Is it OK to pray in tongues for a friend? 2. Is it scriptural for an entire congregation to "sing in tongues" corporately? 3. Can we do spiritual warfare with the gift...

#227 – ╫ Joseph's Trial To Triumph: How God Redeems Evil - Torah Portion: He Approached [PODCAST]

1/2/2020
More
God is so incredibly pure and good, that He takes the most horrible and terrifying circumstances that come about because of sin in the world; and turns it around to accomplish good. In fact, the good that He accomplishes by turning sin around is so good that it often overshadows the bad altogether. Simply, when we are in God, He doesn't say nothing bad will ever happen to us, on the contrary, He promised persecution (Matt 10:22). But what He did promise is this: That He will never leave...

#226 – ╫ End of Year Review 2019: State of the Body of Believers, PD's Greencard, Channel Growth! [PODCAST]

2019 has come to a close, and we had an amazing year with you! In this video, we are sharing our findings of traveling throughout the USA in 2019. We have met many wonderful people, and also received an overview of the current state of believers. Additionally, we are sharing some statistics indicating the amazing growth we've seen in viewership of the ministry this year. And lastly, we will share an update on PD's green card (USA immigration process). THANK YOU to all who have supported the...

#225 – ╫ Why We Struggle To Give Love, Mercy & Forgiveness [PODCAST]

12/26/2019
More
When we don't truly understand how much we've been forgiven, because we think we're better than we really are, we will struggle to love. Because we will think we didn't need much forgiveness and mercy, so why would anyone else? Why would we extend such mercy to others when "we didn't need it". Pride is the opposite of love, and as you'll discover in this teaching, pride is very subtle in how it strips us of love for our neighbor. Luk 7:47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are...

#224 – ╫ The Speaking in Tongues Series - Part 2 [PODCAST]

12/21/2019
More
A new series of over 2 hours of teaching on the controversial spiritual gift of speaking in tongues. In this teaching, we will use scripture to explain the gift in a way that is practical, with testimonies to give it life, while considering what the Father desires this gift to achieve in the Body. This teaching is important because the gift has been abandoned by many because of bad experiences, inaccurate teaching, or misunderstandings of scriptures. But we hope this will bring an end to...

╫ When God Doesn't Make Sense [PODCAST]

12/4/2019
More
When Peter was on his boat, frustrated at the water for not bringing forth any fish that day, a stranger called out: "Throw your net to the other side of the boat, and you'll catch". Now isn't that the most ridiculous-sounding advice ever? Any good fisherman would know that it doesn't matter which side of the boat a net is tossed, it won't change the yield of fish. Yet this is exactly what Jesus said. God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the...

╫ Loving Like Jesus - The Greatest Commandment [PODCAST]

11/28/2019
More
Some have been believers in Jesus all their life, yet still live lives lacking in what the Bible describes as love. For the believer, love is not an option, love is not a feeling. It does not compromise showing grace, nor showing truth. Love is not limited by our opinions, or the world's opinions. Love is not limited by how much we were offended or how much wrong was done to us. Love hopes, believes, is patient, humble, all while rejoicing in truth. This is what love is suppose to be. But we...

╫ Why Am I Here? - How Jesus Shared Purpose [PODCAST]

11/24/2019
More
When Jesus walked up to the lost and sick, the first thing He did was to show them their treasures - their purpose, value, and most importantly His love for them. Above all else He came to them because He deeply desired to see them walk in the Freedom He has to offer. And only after all this was clearly communicated to the person, to the point of them wondering who Jesus could be, did He tell them repent of their sins. So often, the first thing we want to do is tell people to repent. While...

╫ Taking Every Thought Captive [PODCAST]

11/21/2019
More
No matter how long you've been walking with God, our enemy, the devil, does not give up. He waits at the door and throws out bad reports - lies. These reports come to us masquerading as our very own thoughts, but they are not. We are tested each day to see what we trust more: The bad reports this world will bring, or the unbreakable promises of our God, who dwells in unapproachable light. Take your unclean thoughts captive, or they will take you captive.

PD & Christina's wedding was a Hebraic themed wedding, inspired by the Biblical narrative. In this video, we share the different elements we used in our wedding, what they mean, and how you can use them to make your wedding one that glorifies God above all!

╫ Churches Are Celebrating Halloween - Would Jesus? [PODCAST]

11/8/2019
More
This is one to share with your Christian friends (interview with a pastor in this video!). Halloween just ended, how was yours? I'll be honest, as being from South Africa and this being my official "first" Halloween, driving through our American neighborhood streets was a weird experience, almost like walking through the set of a horror movie. This all sparked my curiosity. So on Halloween, I drove up to a local church doing "Trunk or Treat" (a "lightened version" of Trick or Treat), and...

╫ The Kanye Controversy - Parable of the Wheat & the Tares [PODCAST]

10/31/2019
More
So often, we think of ourselves as being responsible to pull out the tares from God's field. But the parable of the wheat & the tares told by Yeshua gives a different perspective. In this parable, the servants' first instinct was to pull out the tares as soon as they were spotted. However, the Master told them to wait lest they pull out the wheat along with the tares. Why did the master say this? And what does it teach us to do when we come across people who seem like tares in the field?

╫ Becoming A Fountain of Living Water [PODCAST]

10/24/2019
More
When we keep God's commandments, attend church, His feasts, do communion or whatever other religious rites, why do we do it? The heart's motivation for why we do what we do is just as important as what we actually do. Throughout scripture, we see examples of men who seemed religious and good - even so far as to be dining with the Messiah Himself, yet they’re hearts behind their actions were wicked and they were condemned by God for it. And this is the difference between those who will see...

╫ The Parable of the Wineskins [PODCAST]

10/18/2019
More
Many have scratched their heads about Jesus' Parable of the Wineskins. And many have struggled to understand it for the same reason the Pharisees struggled. Ironically, the parable teaches us about why we sometimes struggle to understand the parables and things of God: When we try to grasp and explain kingdom matters with our fallen carnal minds, instead of the Spirit. "If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:12)

╫ Let God Be The Judge - Day of Atonement [PODCAST]

10/8/2019
More
The Day of Atonement is an appointed time of God that reminds us to live lives that are holy, for we will all one day stand before God and be judged for every idle word we have spoken (Matt 12:36, 2 Cor 5:10). But also, we need to be reminded that God Himself will be the Great Judge. While we are to judge matters in our life righteously (John 7:24), Jesus spoke of the pointing of the finger often: That the measure we use to judge others will be measured back to us on that day of judgment....

╫ From Slave to Son: Preparing For The Final Feast of Trumpets [PODCAST]

10/3/2019
More
After receiving the commandments from Mount Sinai, Israel desired to keep them. But they couldn't. No matter how hard they tried they continuously failed to stay free from sin. It seemed almost as if they merely transitioned from their mindset of slavery at Egypt to slavery to sin. This needs to make us stop and think as to whether we are trying to keep the law of God still as “slaves” and “orphans”, or as sons? Attempting to justify ourselves by what we can do, or by what He has done?...
