Our souls long for the coming King….

אוֹדְךָ, אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהַי–בְּכָל-לְבָבִי; וַאֲכַבְּדָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם

I give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your Name forever. 
– Psalm 86:12

Giving Him glory with every word,

New Album Coming Soon

The idea of the Coming King embodies all of our hope as believers in the risen Messiah.

Because He has died on the cross for our sins, we are now righteous before God. Because He descended into hell, He now holds the keys of death and the grave. Because He was resurrected by the quickening of the Holy Spirit, He proved Himself the Son of God on the earth. Because He ascended to the right Hand of the Father, we have hope of His return.

Having heard about Messiah’s impending arrival my entire life, I grew up with a longing that I could not describe or understand. When I realized that Yeshua is the Messiah I had been waiting for, it was at once clear that this yearning in my soul was for Him. In the process of preparing this album, I hope to express that desire to the world and to stir in all of us a hunger for His Kingdom.

Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord,
His going out is sure as the dawn,
He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.

– Hosea 6:3 ESV

A Memoir on Choosing Jesus as a Jew

As believers, we are taught to look forward to new horizons. The new heaven and earth are the undiscovered country we long for, though we’ve never seen them. Yet, the greatest journey we will ever embark on starts with one choice.

To leave the traditions I grew up with and explore the possibility that my Messiah may have already come was a daunting prospect. Just considering it was dangerous. To believe it was blasphemy. In the end, the choice was mine.

God gave us the gift of volition, the ability to exercise our own will. I pray this book helps those with their own doubts and questions. It is no sin to search, but it is a crime to let others make the most important choice for you.

Join the journey to The Coming King.

Seeking to give Him glory with every word.

My Jewish name is Gittel Fruma. It is Yiddish for “Good Pious.” Only with Him can I be either of those things. I am wife to a truth-seeking man of God and mother to a precious baby boy.

I was born into an Orthodox Jewish home and studied at a Chabad Hebrew School until I was eleven years old alongside the children of two Rabbis. My parents divorced when I was fourteen, but our Jewish customs were not affected by the split. I grew up eating strictly kosher, not using electricity on Shabbos (Sabbath), sitting on the women’s side of the synagogue and saying the Shema every night before I went to sleep. I referred to God as “Ha-Shem”, which literally means “The Name”. Even though I was transferred to secular public schools for my later education, I went to a Chabad synagogue almost every Saturday, had a Bat-Mitzvah at twelve years old and attended Jewish classes at the Jewish Community Center until I was fifteen.

Why am I telling you all of this? Simply to provide context for the gravity of what happened next. I encountered the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit, in the last place I expected and realized that my Messiah had come. After all those years of waiting, He was alive, sitting at the right hand of God. And He died on a cross for my sins. His name is Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth.

I am not writing to gain glory or popularity. My words exist for the sole purpose of drawing people near to their Messiah.

Jesus Christ is the One true Savior and He came first to the Jew, then to the gentile. What kind of a Jew would I be if I didn’t cry out to the nations that the God of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov sent His only Son to die as a sacrifice for our sins?

Please, look for Him as you read. Don’t look to me; I am nothing. Open your heart to His consuming love and be made whole, in Yeshua’s name.

To Him be all the glory and honor forever and ever. Amen.

Gittel lives with her husband and son in Clearwater, Florida, where they serve at the Brazilian church her husband’s family founded in 1997.
