Jessica Hultquist Interview

This delightful young lady loves Yeshua and is a talented artist.  It was a privilege to talk with her and learn how she became involved in Messianic Judaism.

In her own words:

Hi! My name is Jessica Hultquist, and I am from Mobile, Alabama. I currently work as a Graduate Assistant and a PhD student in Instructional Design and Development at the University of South Alabama. I enjoy creating art pieces, especially with oil pastels and acrylic paint. When God gives me a dream or a vision, the strokes from my brush/pastels flow from my hands to the paper/canvas. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing at synagogue and operating the screens for the tech crew at church. You can find me on Facebook at Jessica Hultquist and on Instagram at jessicahultquistart.

Scott Sekulow Interview (originally aired 1999)

What a privilege to find this in the archives.   Rabbi Scott lost a battle with Covid and is now in the arms of Yeshua.   Here is a post from his obituary:

Rabbi Scott Sekulow of Chicago, Illinois, a Sr Rabbi at Congregation Beth Adonai has passed away August 12, 2021, he studied at Beulah Heights University after he went to Woodward Academy and Mercer University Atlanta.

Rabbi Scott’s wife, Judy Burnham Sekulow had recently stated on her Facebook post that her husband was hospitalized due to covid pneumonia.

Rabbi Scott Sekulow will be dearly missed by family and the Beth Adonai community. Our thoughts are with everyone who knew him.

”…… great sadness I wanted to let our community know of the departure of the Tzaddik from the world. Rabbi Scott Sekulow, a true son of Israel. Prayers for comfort for our the family. Thank you. We remember his beloved wife Judy Burnham Sekulow and his beloved daughter Natalie Sekulow . Please lift the entire family in prayer in this difficult moment. The Rabbi served over Beth Adonai Synagogue in Atlanta, and was truly a giant in the early days of Messianic Judaism. Rabbi Scott was a true lover of the G-D of Israel, the people of Israel, and his giant heart surely continue to work in the heavens. He served on several boards including on Ahavat Ammi International board. I will miss him so much as he is one of the few people in ministry that I can close true soul friends….”

Remember to keep his family in your prayers.

Daniel Nessim Interview

Shalom!  Today I aired a pre-recorded interview with Congregational Leader Daniel Nessim.  Here are some interesting facts about Daniel:

Dr. Daniel Nessim is the son of Jewish parents who also believe in Jesus. His mother is a survivor of the holocaust, having been being hidden in Berlin throughout the Second World War. His father was from a Jewish family from Baghdad and Cairo. A few years after his arrival in England in the 1950’s, Daniel’s father became the first in his family to believe in Yeshua. Daniel has thus had a privilege rarely accorded to Jewish believers in Yeshua, having a heritage of faith in his own family. Thus at the age of seven, Daniel already knew that Yeshua was his Messiah and Lord, and made a decision to accept Him as his Savior.

After the family moved to Vancouver, Canada, where Daniel’s father led a mission to the Jewish people, Daniel eventually began a career in the engineering field. Before long however, he studied for a Bachelor’s in Theology from Northwest Baptist Bible College, and then went to Regent College for a Master of Arts in Christian Studies. It was shortly after this that Daniel joined Chosen People Ministries, working out of Seattle, WA. After a few years, Daniel and his wife went to England with their son, where they established the United Kingdom branch of Chosen People Ministries. They also planted a Messianic Jewish congregation in the heart of England’s Jewish community. Dr. Nessim holds a Ph.D. in Theology and Religion from the University of Exeter (England), having focused his studies on the life of the earliest believers and their beliefs. He is the co-author of Introducing Your Jewish Friend to Yeshua, and has also written Derech Yeshua: The Way of Salvation, as well as a Messianic Jewish prayer book.

Daniel is passionately committed to seeing other Jewish people come to accept the Messiahship of Jesus. He believes that there is a great need to “put shoe leather” on the fact that Jewish people can believe in Yeshua and still be Jews. Thus he maintains his own Jewish Lifestyle as a personal commitment while encouraging other Jewish people to accept their Messiah.

Daniel Nessim is a skilled communicator who has spoken extensively in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Israel. He is now serving among the Jewish people of Washington State and Vancouver, B.C. and teaching in the Messianic Jewish movement. He is available for speaking engagements and interviews particularly on topics dealing with the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, and their relevance to believers in Jesus today.

Enjoy great music too!!!

A Tribute to Claude Painter

My friend Claude Painter just graduated to heaven.   Our loss is heaven's gain.   Claude was a mighty man of God, a perfect example of Messiah to everyone who knew him.   He will be missed greatly!   His sense of humor, his warmth and encouragement will never be forgotten.  He and his wife Esther were huge encouragers to me as I began broadcasting.   They tirelessly copied and labeled many of my early shows and there are boxes of tapes in my basement to prove it!

He loved to sing, had a big booming voice and was gifted in so many ways.   Today's program is my dedication, my tribute to my dear friend Claude.   I hope it blesses you!
