Bible Translations


After you read this post, please read my blog post about this subject.  I agree with the following post, and want to add an important note.  I recommend The Complete Jewish Bible and also the Tree of Life Version.  I checked both Bibles related to the Scriptures above.  They both have a footnote with the "missing" verses.   Also, I recommend using the Bible Gateway website for comparing translations.  It is eye opening and an invaluable resource.
VERY CRITICAL ALERT!!! (from Jude Seddon on Facebook)
 "The NIV and English Standard Version (ESV)has now removed 64,575 words from the Bible
including . . . Calvary, Holy Ghost, and omnipotent to name but a few... 

The NIV and ESV has also now removed 45 complete verses. Most of us have the Bible on our devices and phones especially "OLIVE TREE BIBLE STUDY APP."Try and find these scriptures in NIV and ESV on your computer, phone or device right now if you are in doubt: will not believe your eyes.
Refuse to be blinded by Satan, and do not act like you just don't care. Let's not forget what the Lord Jesus said in John 10:10 (King James Version).
If you must use the NIV and ESV, BUY and KEEP AN EARLIER VERSION of the BIBLE. A Hard Copy cannot be updated. All these changes occur when they ask you to update the app. on your phone or laptop etc. Buy and KEEP EARLIER VERSIONS AND STORE THEM.
There is a crusade geared towards altering the Bible as we know it; NIV, ESV and many more versions are affected."
I hope you will take this to heart, Gail-Friends, and please, please, please take a look at "The Message", a version that is being promoted to young adults and teens.  The only thing I can say is do your research and make careful comparisons.  It is abominable.

March for Israel


Today, in Washington D.C., over 250,000 are gathered to show support for Israel and to say, "NEVER AGAIN!"  You can view this event and hear the speakers at this link: March for Israel on CBN

Watch and Pray:

  • for the safe return of the Israeli hostages
  • for the war wounded
  • for the families and loved ones of those killed
  • for the Israeli Defense Force
  • for the leaders to have discernment and understanding in decision making
  • for Jews all over the world who are experiencing anti-antisemitism (including us)
  • for the shalom of Jerusalem
  • for Yeshua Ha Mashiach to return -- soon!  

 I hope this event will be available for later viewing.  I especially was blessed to hear a Pakistani American Muslim, Anila Ali, speak of her support of Israel.  Don't miss it.

Last month, Rabbi Jem and I were blessed to attend a local rally for Israel.  As we waved flags, many honked in support.  It did our hearts good to see the many people who came out.

 This is an interesting read from 

The Promised Land

We find many times in the Chumash that G‑d promised Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and his descendants.

“The L‑rd appeared to Abraham and said, I will give this land to your descendants.” [Bereishit 12:7]

What is so special about Eretz Yisrael

Many of the 613 mitzvot are connected with Eretz Yisrael, e.g. Tithes, the Shmittah [Sabbatical year when the land lies fallow], worshiping and sacrifices in the Temple etc. Eretz Yisrael has a special kedushah — holiness —  read more at this LINK


I've been blessed to make aliyah two times and I can tell you it is a special place.  We don't know why this has happened, but I can assure you -- Adonai is in control.  This did not take Him by surprise.  

My prayer is that this horrible event will bring every Jew, including the grafted in ones, to their knees and make a commitment to follow Adonai's commandments.   Why? Because the Scripture says:  "Those who keep Torah fight against evil."  This is a spiritual battle, Gail-Friends.  The evil one has come to steal, kill, and destroy.  Let's join the fight in support of Israel - with prayer, praise, and righteousness.  

This verse is still true for Jews as well as those grafted in:  2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 

Read 2 Chronicles in context and you will see clearly that "turn from their wicked ways" means obey His commandments.   We were born for such a time as this -- to proclaim obedience to Torah -- and the saving blood of Yeshua Ha Mashiach as the payment for our sins (disobedience to Torah).
