Why I’m Thankful For The Carolina Panthers

In 2001, not long after recording Sodom and Gomorrah, I received a call on my cell phone as I was driving from Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina. The man on the phone had a deep, gruff voice. He invited me to come and stay at his house so that he could talk to me about […]

End-of-Year Giving Message From Michael

Without You… There’s Nothing.
They say there are two things certain in life: death and taxes. How’d you like to avoid both?

The first one is easy… live for the Kingdom. That means serving others with everything you’ve got, every day. It’s being a living example of the Torah, just like Yeshua did. I’ve said for a long time that we need […]

At the time I first published the first edition manuscript of The Chronological Gospels, there were phrases that Yeshua spoke that I still could not wrap my head around, even after more than 40 years of diligent study. But once I had the gospels in my hands, in time-ordered sequence, cause-and-effect began to make sense […]

Do “Torah Portions” Miss The Point?

If you have been a seeker of truth for any length of time, you have likely heard about or participated in Bible studies on Shabbat that focused on reading the “Torah portions.” I know the routine — I’ve been there.

For years, we gathered in my home in Jerusalem to read and study the Torah portions […]

Berwin’s Testimony: “It all started with a prayer…”

Wow. It all started with a prayer to the LORD. I said “GOD I need and want your wisdom. The same wisdom you gave to King Solomon I want it. I need your direction, your revelation and insight.” After the prayer within a week I know for sure  ADONIA took me by my shoulders and […]

How Do You Recycle An Old, Worn Out Marine?

So how do you recycle an old, worn out Marine like me?

Give him 6 coronary bypasses, a new TV show, and stand back to see what happens…

Two-and-a-half years ago, after the second time in two years that my heart attacked (and attempted to kill me), I made a firm decision to complete the task which […]
