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.

.וְהָאָרֶץ, הָיְתָה תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ, וְחֹשֶׁךְ, עַל-פְּנֵי תְהוֹם; וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
~ Genesis 1:2


When I was a child studying at a Jewish elementary school, we learned Hebrew by translating scripture. I remember translating the beginning of Genesis. B’reshit bara Elohim et ha’shamayim v’et ha’aretz. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. V’ha’aretz hayta tohu v’vohu v’choshech al p’ney t’hom v’Ruach Elohim m’rachefet al p’ney ha’mayim. And the earth was formless and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

At first the phrase stuck in my memory because, to a six year old, it sounded funny. Tohu v’vohu. Little did I know, how meaningful those words would become as I grew in faith. “Formless and void.”

Before I knew Yeshua, I was formless and void. I was full of darkness. My soul was a deep well of emptiness. The abyss was all I knew.

Then one day, I looked up. I saw the face of the waters and began to float upwards. Not knowing why I was drawn to the surface, I continued to seek the waters’ edge. Imagine my surprise to find the Ruach Elohim, the Spirit of the Living God, hovering there above me. More surprising still – He had been there the whole time. He had always been over the face of my deep waters, waiting for me to look up and choose the light.

He is here still. Now, He lives in me. No longer does He hover above me, but I soar with Him above myself. We all have the decision to continue looking down, to dwell in deep darkness, to feel the void of our existence and to live without form. Or to look up and join Him Who is Light, to rise above ourselves and to allow Him to shape us. As the potter molds the clay, He is molding me. Slowly, but surely, I am taking form in His hands.
