Shimrit Hanes-Zemer Levav

You are in for such a treat!   Today's show features the music of Zemer Levav and an interview with Shimrit Hanes.   She sings beautifully and plays the harp too!   Also she just wrote her first book, The Dreamers, the Terra Colony Project Book 1.

Shimrit is a songwriter/vocalist/harpist and never intended to become an author. A home school mom of five, her three adult daughters challenged each other to write a book in a month. Desiring to be helpful, she read “No Plot, No Problem” by Chris Baty aloud to her busy middle daughter while she worked. Suddenly an incredible story idea came to mind. Now she had a plot, and a problem. This was her girls thing! MOM!
At the end of the month she and one other daughter had their manuscripts finished. After three years of re-writes and fine tuning, Shimrit had a finished book, and outlines for a second and third! Thus “The Terra Colony Project” series was born.

Enjoy!!

Rabbi Kirt Schneider

It was an honor to interview Rabbi Kirt Schneider recently.  I enjoyed hearing his story of coming to faith in Yeshua

More info:

In 1978, having no concept of or familiarity with Jesus, feeling isolated, unfulfilled, and lost, a young Jewish man was suddenly awakened from his sleep. Immediately, a vision appeared to him of Jesus on the cross. “I knew at that instant that Jesus was the answer I had been searching for,” says Messianic Rabbi Kirt Schneider.

For the first time, he began reading the New Testament, devouring every verse; he says: “it was like fire to me.” He became consumed with knowing and experiencing God, the revelation of His Word, and the glory of His Son.

During the past forty plus years, Rabbi Schneider has committed his life to a passionate pursuit of Jesus and being used by God for His purpose. Through his years of experience in both personal spiritual warfare and ministry, Rabbi Schneider is equipped to bring to God’s Church deep insight into how to gain power over the realm of darkness and live in victory.

Today Rabbi Schneider hosts the impactful television program Discovering The Jewish Jesus, which is available seven days a week in more than one hundred million homes in the United States and airs in nearly two hundred nations worldwide. Viewers tune in regularly as Rabbi Schneider brings revelation on how the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and New Testament are connected. His teaching has personal application that builds faith, changes lives, and instills a greater awareness of God’s love.

Several years ago God told Rabbi Schneider, “You are an evangelist.” The fulfillment of this calling is evident by the salvation testimonies the ministry receives through its television broadcast and by the thousands of souls saved through on the ground outreaches and crusades across Africa and in places like Israel, Ukraine, and Cuba.

Rabbi Schneider has authored several books: Awakening to Messiah, Do Not Be Afraid, Self-Deliverance, The Book of Revelation Decoded, Experiencing the Supernatural, The Lion of Judah, Rivers of Revelation, The Mystery of Dreams, and Rivers of Divine Truth. He has been featured in publications such as: The Jerusalem Post and The Messianic Times, and is a frequent guest on television programs, including: The 700 Club, Daystar’s Marcus and Joni, and Mornings with Maria on Fox Business Network.

Enjoy some great Messianic music too!
