Abiding in Christ

Abiding in Christ By Dr. Bruce Hebel Recently I was invited be the keynote speaker for the re-launch of a church’s men’s ministry. I was asked to share tools that the men could use to become effective leaders in their homes, church and community. Men love tools! I wrestled with the question, “Given 30 minutes in these men’s lives, what is the one tool I can share with them that will have the greatest impact?” The [...]

Discovering Life Together at the Dead Sea

Discovering Life Together at the Dead Sea by Dr. Bruce Hebel “I’ve been to enough of these conferences. Nothing ever changes afterwards. Why should I come to this one?” The previous “reconciliation” meetings in Israel between Messianic Jews and Believing Arabs had consisted of each side airing their grievances and wanting to know what the other side was going to do to resolve them. Since the resolutions offered were never satisfactory, forgiveness was not ever [...]

BLOOD RELATIONS

BLOOD RELATIONS The Hatfields versus the McCoys. The Capulets versus the Montagues. History is filled with blood feuds - families, tribes, people groups - who hate each other because of an ancestral slight or wound. Blood feuds have led to some of the most tragic events in all of history where millions of people have died.  Eleven million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. Seven and a half million Ukrainians were murdered in the Holodomor [...]

Black + Blue: Finding Peace in the Insanity

All over the news we see pending chaos as the African-American community and our nation’s police officers are on the verge of an all-out war. The Black community, with historically legitimate concerns, views the police with suspicion, fear and, in some cases, contempt. Recent tragic deaths in the Black community have brought emotions to a fever pitch and have bolstered the belief of many that any action taken by a police officer against a black [...]

Observations from a Donkey…

"A Most Wondrous Trip" It has been said that Corrie ten Boom, who was once asked if it was difficult for her to remain humble, responded with, “When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday on the back of a donkey, and everyone was waving palm branches and throwing garments on the road, and singing praises, do you think that for one moment it ever entered the head of that donkey that any of that [...]

Forgiving Forward Goes To Israel — Easter Weekend in Jerusalem — Days 16-19

When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. (Luke 19:41-42) If you look closely, you can see the Eastern Gate in the wall on the right side of the picture above. The gate is sealed shut and considered by the Muslims to be their exclusive property [...]

Forgiving Forward Goes To Israel — Ground Zero — Days 13-15

We have spent the last three days down in the Negev, in Omer (Beersheba) where it all began—Ground Zero for the Hebrew faith, the Abrahamic Covenant and the birth of nation of Israel through which our Savior would be born. What an honor to come together, Jews and Gentiles, in the very place where God spoke to Abraham, Hagar, Jacob and Elijah. This place is a place of roots, where journeys began, where obedience was [...]

Forgiving Forward Goes To Israel – “Hallelujah” in Every Language — Days 9-12

Israel is so culturally diverse…many people groups, many languages. Yet there is one unifying factor we have witnessed between them all and that is the Christ followers’ passion to worship our Lord. We have been translated into Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, German, and other languages, but there is one word that is the same in all languages—“Hallelujah!” That is, “Praise the Lord.” Three days ago, we left the Sea of Galilee and traveled “up to Jerusalem.” [...]

Forgiving Forward Goes To Israel – Gaining Momentum Days 5 — 7

The Forgiveness Revolution is gaining momentum in Israel. Your prayers are being answered. The forgiveness message has not only been heard but also embraced. Just today we have heard back from three people that have received the truth for themselves first and are now beginning to share it with others. One dear lady, now a dear friend, walked another young woman through the forgiveness protocols. She was set free and our friend was greatly encouraged. [...]

Forgiving Forward Goes To Israel – Unity and Diversity (Day 3 & 4)

Can you imagine your entire family being killed in the Holocaust? Can you imagine being raised in a home that worships satan and lives by witchcraft? Can you imagine your little brother being greatly injured by a terrorist bomb? These are just some of the many stories we have heard from people that we helped forgive, that through forgiveness were set free. Yesterday, after 11 hours of personal one-on-one coaching we were filled with great [...]
