After spending nearly 20 years in pulpit ministry, a sudden trip to Israel gave me a startling revelation. I realized that the Messiah that I served and preached about was not only a Jew, but that He was/is Jewish. His thoughts, culture, manner of life, and teachings were from the same perspective as the people that I met in the various places of Israel. That understanding conflicted with the American version of Him that I was preaching.
The only thing for me to do was to study His Word from the perspective that it was written in, and preach Him with authenticity, which led to conflict with my church congregation. I left the church system for good in August, 2002, and started a Hebraic congregation called House of David. I teach and declare the Torah of Yahshuah as given to Moshe in the wilderness. My wife, our children and their families, along with our congregants seek to simply read the whole book and do it.
