Paganism and idolatry are real. Those who live in the West seldom see people worshiping or offering sacrifices to idols, but paganism is as real today as it was in the time of the Bible. Idolatry is not just a metaphor for materialism, it exists in a physical and tangible way as well. Paganism is not just something for the history books, but it is something every believer must guard against even today. Also available in MP3 format here.

The re-establishment of the land of Israel is a continuing miracle in our days that causes us to think about God's faithfulness to his covenant. As a result, we can thank the Lord through celebrating Tu Bishvat with all Israel.
Perhaps you have never heard of Tu Bishvat, and have no idea about how to celebrate it. That's okay! First Fruits of Zion has a great resource for you. In "PLANT" you will learn all about the holiday of Tu Bishvat.
Tu Bishvat, the New Year for Trees, is a beautiful time to herald new life after a long and dormant winter. In the seventeenth century, a new custom arose to celebrate Tu Bishvat with a seder, a ceremonial meal inspired by Passover.
Bloom, Vine of David’s new Tu Bishvat Haggadah, is inspired by the story of the early pioneers of the modern State of Israel. This seder reflects upon the dreams of a Jewish national homeland in the Promised Land throughout the centuries and its culmination with Zionism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Bloom is simple and not deeply mystical. It focuses the modern return of the Jewish people to their land as a part of the broader plan of world redemption.
In celebration of Passover, we thought it appropriate to remember, and even reprint, what appears to be the first messianic haggadah ever produced, printed more that 120 years ago: the Rabinowitz Haggadah.
Joseph Rabinowitz (1837–1899) grew up in a Russian Chassidic family and became a devout and pioneering follower of Yeshua. He formed Benei Yisrael, is widely considered the first Messianic Jewish congregation of the modern era. The Rabinowtiz Haggadah is a fascinating look at early Messianic thought and is an inspiring piece of our Messianic heritage.
The biblical education of Jewish children begins with Leviticus, a book largely about the sacrificial system. The animal sacrifices, however, are especially repugnant to modern Christians who see them as a temporary provision until Messiah's final atonement for sin. By studying the sacrifices we gain insight into God's instructions for approaching him in worship, and a better understanding of Yeshua's work on our behalf.
