Janice Sattele Interview

Janice was raised Baptist and accepted Yeshua into her heart at the age of seven.  In the early 90s she attended a Bible study and was introduced to First Fruits of Zion and learned about Messianic Judaism.  She was immediately drawn to the Jewish customs and holidays and couldn't stop telling everyone about Yeshua!  Janice has had many miraculous healings and hopes to one day write a book about all her experiences with the Lord!  She gives her whole life to God to do with as He pleases. She says "be all the Glory and Praise to Him for it all.  Baruch HaShem!"

Eric Tokajer - 7th Time!

How wonderful to have Rabbi Eric on the show again!

Rabbi Eric was raised in a traditional Jewish home. After his bar mitzvah, he began to study the Hebrew Scriptures more closely which brought many questions to his mind. Questions like if a sacrifice had to be made once a year on Yom Kippur to cover the sins of Israel from year to year how were those sins covered now. When he was unable to find answers from the different rabbis that he asked, he became an agnostic. 

While serving in the US Navy, Rabbi Eric was challenged by a believer in Yeshua to study the Scriptures until he found answers within them. While searching the Hebrew Scriptures, Rabbi Eric found belief in Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel which brought answers to all of the questions he had. It is now over 33 years ago. 

Since then Rabbi Eric studied to become an ordained Rabbi in the IAMCS (International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues). He has served as a Rabbi in Mobile, Alabama. He also helped to establish five synagogues across the Gulf Coast in Slidell, Louisiana; Bayou La Batre, Alabama; Spanish Fort, Alabama; Navarre, Florida, and Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue in Pensacola, Florida, where he serves as Rabbi today. Rabbi Eric has been married for 42 years to his wife Pammy.

In addition to God Has No Plan B, Rabbi Eric has written; With Me in Paradise, Transient Singularity, #ManWisdom, OY! How Did I Get Here?,Thirty-One Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before Entering Ministry, Jesus is to Christianity as Pasta is to Italians, Romans in Context and Simple Shabbat Siddur.

Dawn Reaves and Heather Frykberg

I met Dawn and Heather last year at the Messiah Conference. 

Heather and Dawn are Messianic believers and have collaborated on a Trilogy being published by Olive Press Publisher.  Their books have a very Hebraic understanding.  The 1st book, "Slivers of Hell-Mosaic Steppingstones to Heaven"  reveals the ancient pictographs of Hebrew that reveal the plan of salvation for all mankind.  The pictographs are woven in the three realms between earth, heaven and hell. The second book, "More than Heather and Dawn are Messianic believers and have collaborated on a Trilogy being published by Olive Press Publisher.  Their books have a very Hebraic understanding.  The 1st book, "Slivers of Hell-Mosaic Steppingstones to Heaven"  reveals the ancient pictographs of Hebrew that reveal the plan of salvation for all mankind.  The pictographs are woven in the three realms between earth, heaven and hell. The second book, "More than Flesh and Blood-Soul Chasers Exposed exposes the evil one's plans of antisemitism, and the third book "Captivated-Intertwined" immerses the reader into falling madly in love with Yeshua!  The Trilogy will be available as an audio.Their writings were written over a 30 year time period, at first not realizing that their Messiah was putting together supernatural prophetic writings. 

Heather and Dawn live in Arizona with their husbands and their hope is that all Jewish souls understand who their Messiah is and that all are called for such a time as this.
