Outcry Ministries | What’s The Big Deal About Christmas? – Learn Torah

If you are an American or were raised within a western culture, you are probably familiar with the emphasis placed on Christmas. It is such a cultural event that many employers either close or operate on a reduced staff. People leave their homes and travel to visit family and friends. Some attend church. Some sing songs. Some have Christmas Trees with tinsel, ornaments and presents. And some expect Santa Clause to bring them presents. In this article, I explore the following questions from a Torah perspective: Is Christmas found in the bible? What are the origins of Christmas? Does The Most High, The Creator, care if we gather and feast on December 25? And, what if any, are the consequences of observing and gathering for Christmas?

Having been raised an American Catholic, I didn’t think t...

Learn Torah | Read On – Outcry Ministries

I’ve become a man obsessed.  I cannot read a single bible verse anymore.  Every time I see a verse on some “verse of the day” or bumper sticker or one of those gas-station signs outside a big church (you know the ones, they have to use a backward 2 to make an ‘S’ because they didn’t have enough?)  I am suspicious.  I have to go read the whole chapter. I’ve stopped starting in the middle of a chapter.  I’ve stopped referencing CONCEPTS within the bible by their verse, only by the chapter.  You see, we’ve been duped. But it’s our fault.  We’re SO hurried, but lazy, that we would much rather pull a quippy inspirational quote than to understand the context in which it was written.  We can prove almost anything by taking it out of context.  

We’ve just gotten thr...

Outcry Ministries | Where Is Your Gaze – Torah Ministry

Where is your gaze? Are you wanting to learn Torah, but seem to be hitting a wall? Maybe you have joined a Hebrew Roots assembly, or a Messianic Synagogue. Maybe you have even converted to Judaism because you have been told that it is Jewish Law. I’m here to tell you that no matter where you are, if you will fix your gaze on the Creator of the Universe, He will fix His gaze on you! There are many Torah Ministries out there, and while no one Torah ministry is exactly alike, they are all very similar. We, however want to share the Truth with you. You have to die to yourself. You CANNOT bring your past with you. If you have anything left to give to the King of Babylon, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Israel. Upon whom are you fixing your gaze?

Messiah’s Torah | Who Are You?

Long ago I had a teacher challenge us to answer the question, “Who are you?”, without associating yourself with a group.  I thought it would be simple. I’m a Student, Christian, Drummer, Nerd, American.  Any adjective I chose for myself came with an association.  I am one of the students, a resident of America, in the drumline, follower of Messiah.  It was then that I realized that I was inescapably grouped with those who were similar.  When telling someone who I was, there was an automatic assumption that they knew many things about me because of those with whom I had associated myself. That’s the problem with stereotypes, they’re a real time saver.  So, like it or not, the question, “Who Are You?” is really asking, “Who are you with?”

Who Are You With?

Fasting Is Afflicting | Yom Kippurim – Learn Torah

I have seen many people decide to not fast on Yom Kippur in the past few years. The main reason for this is because the large ministries teach that “afflicting” your soul doesn’t mean fasting. We are going to take a look at this in a simple scriptural study we like to call “Fasting Is Afflicting.”

AFFLICTION

26 Yehovah spoke to Moshe, saying, 27“On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be set apart convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to Yehovah. 28“You shall not do any work on this same day, for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before Yehovah your Elohim. 29“If there is any person who will not humble himself on this same day, he shall be cut off from his people.30“...

Law Of Gravity – Learn Torah

I was lying awake last night for a few hours, and Yehovah was teaching me how we ALL live according to Law, everyday. The laws that most of us live under are for our protection and it is NO different in regards to the Torah! Lets take the law of gravity for instance. What goes up, must come down. So in other words, if you jump off the empire state building, without any flying device or parachute, it will most definitely not end well for you! So, one could say the punishment of the law of gravity, when jumping off a tall building, is DEATH! We have a choice to make!

Do we jump and fall into the punishment category, or do we abide by this law and live? Most of us would choose the latter and live! We would be foolish to jump, knowing the outcome would be death! Either foolish or arrogant, th...

Fear of Leaving Circe (Church) – Learn Torah

Have you left the church yet? I am intrigued by the fight to keep such a demonic institution alive, and sadly the strongest warriors are those who claim to follow the TRUTH! The word church doesn’t exist in the text of the “New Testament”, and surprisingly, its origin isn’t so biblical either.
The word church comes from an Old English word “circe”. Webster’s Dictionary has a VERY surprising definition and origin for this word.

Fear of Leaving

The sad thing is, the church hasn’t really tried to hide it’s Mithraic Sun worship in the slightest bit. In fact it puts it’s pagan origins on display for the entire world to enjoy with it’s reuse of pagan holidays, statues, symbols and idols...

Torah Ministry | Do Not Fear – A Scary Trend

Shalom. As we have been simplifying our lives the past few years, I have more time to notice the lives around me. As good as this is, sadly the majority of the lives around me have been filled with fear. By fear I mean, fear of the government. Fear of radical religion. Fear that our closest friends may not enter into the kingdom. Etc… Yehovah commands us to NOT fear more than the majority of any command in the scriptures. Granted, we live in a world that is chaotic at best, and bound for destruction at worst. If it’s not the imminent collapse of the world system that breeds fear, it’s the threat of radical religious war that has many people in the bonds of fearful assumption.

Why did Yehovah instruct us to not fear? I know, I know, “Fear is the beginning of wisdom.” I guess the question ...

Outcry Ministries | Balaam’s Error – Torah Truth

2 Kepha (Peter) 2:1-22

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

For if Elohim did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the unrighteous; and ...

Learning Sex From The Harlot? – Some Things Never Change

I often lay awake at times, thinking about relationships that have been lost because of different traditional mountains that we must cross in our fellowship with others. This Journey of “crossing over” is definitely not the easiest journey I have ever been on, but it sure is the most rewarding! I have realized along the way, that some things never change! I have seen so many people catch a glimpse of truth, but instead of digging further in to find more revelation, they take their small treasure back to the location they were leaving, only to get their treasure stolen, and be told that it wasn’t worth anything in the first place. This saddens me greatly! Along these lines is where I get my inspiration for this post!

The question will always come up in the life of a “christian” who has cau...
