Time to Deal with the Religious Spirit
Greg, Pat, and John bring an insightful perspective looking at the gospels and the encounters that Jesus had during His ministry. It is a significant truth that over 1/3 of the encounters that Jesus had were with the Pharisees, the religious folk of His day. Often, we can look at those encounters and lose sight forgetting to apply this to ourselves. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every proceeding word out of the mouth of God.” –Matthew 4:4. To be religious is to be focused on the “outside of the cup”, what man sees, and not concerned about the condition of our hearts. The religious leaders struggled, thinking they were right, when they were wrong. If we say yes to God, then we must also leave our life of sin that God rescues us from. We can’t have both. When Paul was in Athens, he noticed the people of the day were “very religious.”-Acts 17:22. We are always going to be frustrated refusing to leave the life that Jesus delivers us from. Be greatly encouraged as you learn how the experiences in Jesus’s life can apply to the church of today, and so much more.

“Jerusalem Post” Israel’s Protective Edge Update
Greg, Pat, and John share an update from regarding Israel and Operation Protective Edge from the “Jerusalem Post”. Now on day 50, from the perspective of Israelis, Operation Protective Edge does not appear to be accomplishing the goals originally set out to be completed. On Monday, 115 rockets were shot into Israel from Gaza. Homes were damaged in Southern parts of Israel and Israelis express the same fear as when the Operation originally started. We must continue to pray for the peace of Israel. As Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, has stood up against the barrage of accusation and terrorism, his approval rating amidst Israelis has gone from 80% to 40%. He has stood up for the nation of Israel. Israel must now stand with him and for him. The ultimate peace for Israel will come when Yeshua, Jesus Christ returns as He promised.
