My Testimony about Jesus Christ - (Why I Left Islam)

A life that pleases me or a life that truly glorifies Him?

Because of our short-sighted vision of life, we often tend to selfishness. A lot of people are striving towards a lifestyle that is totally pleasing them, even if this way of life is totally opposed to moral standards. Most people do care about short-time pleasures and are intentionally discarding the consequences.

Trust His wisdom, for He knows better

Our Lord's thoughts are much broader and wiser than ours, yet so many individuals are afraid to surrender their lives to Him. They tend to forget that Yeshua knows our beginning and our ending. In His infinite wisdom, every episode He permits is part of a much bigger plan that involves much bigger than our own selves.

Even as believers and disciples, we should sincerely ask ourselves the following question:
"Are we willing to lay down our lives for Him so He can fulfill His plan completely through us?"

While agonizing in Gethsemane, on that tragic night, Yeshua implored our Father:
"Father , if you are willing, take this cup from me..."

But He also concluded: "But your will be done, not mine".

As children of our Heavenly Father, we must trust that each circumstance He uses in our lives will work out for our greatest good.
We must also trust that His plans for our future are perfect.
The Book of Jeremiah clearly points out: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11

Rejection is a form of fear

I used to run away from Yeshua, because I was afraid of His love and the plans He might have in reserve for me. I believed in my own wisdom and was very much disappointed with what I experienced. Encountering Yeshua truly changed my whole perspective about Him. I received such insights about His goodness that I am now willing to work towards His greatest glory.
It is much safer to walk in this world under His loving protection.

In the face of sickness, darkness, desperation and death

The story of Job allows the reader to find responses to very dramatic life situations. It also teaches us not to prompt judging the ones who are hardly hit in times of darkness.

The proverb that exhorts us not to judge someone before walking 1000 miles in his shoes takes all his meaning in front of the text of Job that has been, so many times, overanalyzed.
Funnily the whole accent is put on Job's intense suffering, but nobody seems to take note that Hashem made Job travel from a state of prosperity to a state of increased wealth.
The legendary expression "poor as Job" has become very popular, yet Job used to be one of the richest men in his contemporary world.
Yes, the righteous servant went through darkness, sickness and despair. He lost his children. Every hardship that attained him quite simultaneously. Not every individual would have had the force to resist; it would probably have killed many or make them completely lose faith in the Almighty.

However, we must bear in mind that this was a hard test of faith (induced by the enemy, as reported in the Book of Job).

A disciple will not necessarily be exempted from storms and times of darkness.
It is just safer to travel through them when Yeshua is the guest of our ship.

Do not resist His Call...there might be no tomorrow.

Calling, by Yongsung Kim.

Tov L'Hodot/ It is Good to Give Thanks (Psalm 92:1)


Plight of a Savior's beautiful heart (from "Heart of a Savior")

Dear readers,

I received these words from our Lord yesterday morning. It took me time to even digest them. I felt sick and sad during the whole day. Our Lord has been carrying much more than many actually think.
But soon the truth is going to be restored completely and nobody is going to stop the dynamic of His Gospel.

Praise to our Messiah Yeshua. Amen.

"I am going to unveil unpleasant details for people to open their eyes. Man's downfall opened doors to the devil who took control of the earth. Most men (in the large sense) are likely, Jews and Gentiles confounded, to fall for idolatry. Contrary to a common opinion, Torah does not protect you from becoming an idolater. Look at the numerous Jews who are placing tradition of man before the Commandments of the Father. Also pay attention to the people who are calling them “followers” and who are falling for Christianity's pagan traditions, wrongly thinking that they are giving me a cult...
Child, the Baals and Ishtar are not only facts of the past reported by the Tanakh (Old Testament). They are disguised in your contemporary world in a more subtle way.

You know, the devil's biggest trick was the identity theft of the Messiah. By changing my real Name, Yeshua, that contained the actual meaning of Salvation and turning it into “Jesus”, he would change it into something weaker and meaningless. It is not, as many people would object, a problem of replacing a yod by a “J”. The truth is that Satan had conceived a much more wicked plan that would lead the masses into true blindness.
Jesus” would be mixed up with “Christmas trees” (something that our Father abhors) and “Santa Claus”. The acronym for Santa is no other than Satan.
Easter would refer to pagan goddess Ishtar in a hidden way and the Resurrection of the Messiah would be linked with “Easter eggs” instead of referring to Passover. All Jewish feasts would be replaced with transvestite feasts serving idols.

Satan wanted Jews to be denied Salvation. So he made my Jews believe that I was pagan, and it made sense to them-for Centuries.
Now some Messianic fanatics have once told you that I would ignore requests from people calling me “Jesus”. You know by experience that this is totally untrue. You used to call me by my Greek Name until I told you to call me Yeshua. A lot of people in the world do not know my original Name. I have compassion for anybody who calls upon me.
My precious child, observe the pain I have been carrying for Centuries.
Behold, nobody is going to stop the dynamic of the Gospel revolution, especially in Israel. The enemy's days are counted.
I'd like to tell people to stop being attached to their denomination; have your hearts rooted in me.”

Atheist Has Out Of Body Experience - Meets Hebrew Jesus!

Encircled in His loving arms ( from "Heart of a Savior")

I descended-spiritually speaking-into my beloved's garden.
The Spirit had pushed me to reflect and to write an article about the remembrance of Yeshua's sacrifice. When prompted by the Holy Spirit, I always comply in haste.

I had just finished my article and was ready to get into our Lord's rest.
It was Friday evening. After spending some time in prayer and praise, and chanting a few psalms in Hebrew, I was suddenly interrupted by some noise.
Usually I really dislike such things, especially at 9 in the evening and during Shabbat. But before I could even react to it, I heard our Lord telling me : “This is good noise, get out my daughter.”

I obeyed my Lord's command and stepped out on my little balcony.
Not knowing exactly where it was coming from, but probably from a neighbor building, I heard loud shout-outs: “Barukh ata Hashem, melekh haOlam!” in Hebrew, with hand clapping. People were rejoicing and laughing.
It reminded me that Jewish people were celebrating Purim. I mentally joined their prayers and joy, and thanked our Messiah for showing me His people's effusion of joy.

I slept well and under Yeshua's protection that I strongly felt all night long.

As I woke up, our Lord made me travel 20 Centuries back. He showed me His disciples after He had appeared to them, when the Resurrection had taken place. They were dressed in white robes and hugging each other, smiling in awe and claiming with confidence: “He is risen. He is really risen. He is alive!”
The disciples had a shiny face of glory and huge joy was emanating from their beings.

My loving Lord had a beautiful surprise for me on the following day.
As I sat silently in His presence, He literally encircled me in His loving arms. My eyes didn't see Him, but Yeshua was holding me so close to Him that I could sense His chest near mine. His arms were wrapping me in such a powerful embrace. Very intense was the joy inside of my soul: my Savior's tenderness was so real, so heartfelt, so immense.
I started magnifying my beloved's Name and giving Him high praise.

Yeshua then spoke to me: “Child, I am ALIVE.”

What a celebration! Our Lord is ALIVE.

Yes, I know it as a true fact and I am happy to be a witness of His Resurrection.

In remembrance of Yeshua's Passion

What does Yeshua's Passion really mean to the contemporary world?
How is His painful treatment and death on the Cross in the 1st Century linked with our own lives?
A lot of unbelievers disregard our Messiah's Sacrifice. An atheist once told me: "His Sacrifice doesn't touch me at all...nobody told Him to give His life." Little did this person know about our Father's plan of Salvation.
Yeshua's Sacrifice is indeed a BIG thing. Do not belittle our Messiah's Passion, because all He did, He did it out of pure love, for each and every one of you.

Although I'd agree with many Messianic brothers and sisters that Easter is intertwined with many pagan traditions, I would like to use the time given for a in depth reflection on our Messiah offering His life for us. I know for sure that our Messiah's Passion is intimately linked with Passover.
What I am also aware of, because Yeshua revealed it to me last year, during a night vision, is that the matsa (unleavened bread of the Hebrews) represents His bruised body. After the deliverance of the Hebrews, the ultimate liberation comes from the Messiah of Israel.

My friends, I am not going to enter into debates about the day of His crucifixion and the way He was crucified. I am not savvy enough to verify all these hypotheses. Some Messianic blogger did an in depth study of the week of Crucifixion, so you can check his arguments. The following website also offers some valuable argumentation about the events related with Yeshua's crucifixion.
Honestly, rather than debating about the very day of His crucifixion and how He was crucified ( an X shaped cross, an Y shaped one, a tree or whatever else), matters less.
What is important is WHY Yeshua gave His life for us: Yeshua sacrificed His life for us, because He took our punishment for sin.
We truly deserved death penalty for it, but Yeshua, in His immense goodness, died for us all, so we could access Salvation and eternal life.
One should always think of His passion respectfully, because what Yeshua did for us is the highest expression of love.

"Do this in remembrance of Me"

And He took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave to them, saying, "This is My body, given for you: do this in remembrance of Me"  Luke 22:19

Every year I do set a day apart to commemorate Yeshua's Sacrifice.
Remembering Him should be done in a solemn way, with much devotion. It is good to use unleavened bread, because leaven is much linked with sin. I don't drink wine, so I am filling my cup with grape juice.  I am asking our Lord to bless both elements that represent His Passion.

Remembering Yeshua is announcing Him until He returns. Beware, our Messiah is returning soon!
Let us do our best to spread the Good News worldwide.

The meaning of Yeshua's Suffering

Our Messiah is the purest person I ever had the chance to meet. There is only goodness, light and purity in Yeshua. Be sure that one must have had so much love in their heart to undergo what Yeshua underwent during the painful moment of His Passion.

"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed;" Isaiah 53:5

First of all consider that Yeshua our Messiah is sinless.
He is totally obedient to our Father's will and is literally being butchered like a lamb.
Yeshua's abuse was physical and mental. All the torture that preceded his crucifixion was very painful, in all senses of the term. Yeshua explored the very depths of darkness for us.

He did it for you who are reading this post, so He would be able to help you and to console you in your darkest moments.

A meaning of healing arises from the verse of Isaiah 53:5. Yeshua our Savior loved you that much that He carried all your illnesses while dying on the Cross.

Yeshua can heal you from all your diseases. Call upon His mighty Name!

Take a minute to reflect about our Lord's infinite goodness. Let Him free you from hatred and all form of illness, whether physical or mental.
Raise your eyes to the Cross and ask Him for forgiveness. Let His precious blood wash you and purify you from all evil.

Whoever you are, no matter where you are standing now, take a moment to think about Yeshua's life and Sacrifice. 
Take a minute to thank Him.

Death has no power on Him

There are also many theories about the way Yeshua was tortured in the 1st Century, yet the Shroud of Turin is a faithful witness that indicates us exactly how Roman crucifixion looked like.  We also know as a fact that Yeshua was nailed through His wrists thanks to the Shroud.

Some unbelievers pretend that followers of Yeshua are into a "death cult".
Their allegations could only be true of Yeshua had lived and died from His horrible treatment, leaving His disciples in hopelessness. But Yeshua is RISEN. Our Lord is alive. Death has no power on Him.

Yeshua rose from the dead after 3 days and He is giving eternal life to anybody who accepts Him as Lord and Savior. 

Yeshua loves you all. Will you grab His hand and accept Him as your friend?
Please do it, while His mercy lasts.

May Yeshua grant you His Holy Spirit

Praise to our Maschiach!

Our Messiah's true teachings about Shabbat

Our Messiah's teachings about the 7th day have often been purposely distorted to fit a Sun-day cult that has been globally imposed after the split between Jewish communities and the followers of Yeshua.
Yeshua has been wrongly depicted as a "Shabbat breaker" who was proving the Jews that their Torah is burdensome. This is a huge source of misunderstanding that has been exported into Christianity over the Centuries and that is still preached in some contemporary assemblies.

However, a true disciple of Yeshua, regardless of his denomination, must be willing to acknowledge the truth.

This truth I will speak out loudly. I have been hated for calling Yeshua by His true Name and I know that some people might hate me for stating this very truth: in no way Yeshua our Messiah, the Master of Shabbat, did away with the 4th Commandment.

A lot of people do close their eyes and their ears to the outcry of my heart: Yeshua is a rabbi discussing the Torah!

The authority of the 7th Day is sealed all over the Bible (whatever men say)

The Book of Genesis clearly states that after achieving the whole Creation within 6 days (which has to be understood in a divine chronology, not with human measurements), He rested on the 7th day:

"And on the seventh day, God finished His work, which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done."

However, the most important part is specified in the following verse of Genesis 2:3

"And God blessed the Seventh Day, and He hallowed it; because that in it He rested from all His work which God in creating had made."

God blessed the Seventh Day and sanctified it.

This is a verse that makes one reflect deeply.

If our Father chose the Seventh Day as a resting day, blessed it and sanctified it, shouldn't we consider the 7th Day as important?
Also, if our Father chose Shabbat as a resting day, why would He modify it in favor of Sun-day?

"All arguments in favor of Sun-day are pointless and non-Scriptural and I am going to prove it."

Also, I'd defy anybody to find me one single verse throughout the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation, that points in favor of Sun-day.
There is NONE. Why? Because Sun-day is an adjunction from catholic church. No, Sun-day rest is not a "Christian Shabbat", this is a completely false doctrine! Do not fall for it, because it is in NO WAY rooted in Scripture. Worse, Sun-day cult is linked with idolatry (Sun worship).

Dear readers, I am not part of any assembly, as you would probably know. Yeshua is my sole teacher.

I have many concrete reasons not to adhere Christianity and the pagan references to idolatry it conveys is one of them.

It doesn't matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, the main question is: WHO actually do you follow? The Living God or principles of men?

Also, remember that what you think and what I think does not really matter. Only The Word has authority on this matter. And the Word states: "Remember the Shabbat Day to keep it holy".

Isaiah 58:13-14 exhorts us to delight us in the 7th Day:

"You must observe the Shabbat rather than doing anything you please on my holy day. You must look forward to the Shabbat and treat the Lord's holy day with respect. You must treat it with respect by refraining from your normal activities, and by refraining selfish pursuits and from making business deals. Then you shall take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

The respect of the 7th Day has to do with remembrance.

Exodus 20:8 clearly states: "Remember the Shabbat Day, to keep it holy". Well, this statement is not just some vague option, it is indeed the 4th Commandment!

Shabbat is a seal of Covenant between Hashem and us. Therefore, we are meant to set this day apart.

Malachi 3:6 clearly says: "I am the Eternal, I don't change". If you believe in Hashem, you must also trust that His Commandments are forever valid.

The episodes of the New Testament reinstate Shabbat's authority: here is why.

So many times have I heard and read a negative depiction of Yeshua's way of handling the 7th Day, from people who openly ignored that the debates ignited by the rabbi of Nazareth were plain rabbinical discussions about the Torah. Even recently, I've pointed it out very clearly to people who refused my message with anger.

Stating that Yeshua is Jewish still offends a lot of people.

It doesn't matter how much deaf and blind people are to the actual truth, Yeshua grew up in Israel, as a practicing Jew from a Torah observant family. Do you really think, considering the love that unites Him with our Father, that He would spit on the Torah?

In no way, Yeshua our Messiah invites people to do away with Shabbat. He exhorts people to practice it with compassion. Emergencies are being treated on Shabbat as they should be.

If Yeshua hated Shabbat and wanted to do away with it, why would He claim to be the Master of Shabbat?

If Shabbat was meant to be replaced with Sun-day, the first day of the week, Yeshua would have stated it very clearly.

At the time our Messiah experienced torture and horrible death, when He was laid to rest in the tomb, His disciples observed Shabbat before going back to the tomb. Everybody observed Shabbat.

After Yeshua's Resurrection and during the first two Centuries, His disciples were keeping Shabbat, in the same way Messianic Jews are observing it nowadays.

When rabbi Yeshua is breaking a Shabbat all over the New Testament, it is only meant to reinforce its authority.

Remember, the Son of Man is the Master of Shabbat we are meant to welcome on Friday evening while lighting our candles.

An Encounter with Yeshua the Sequel is out!

Shabbat Shalom my friends and enjoy your read,

Much love from your author who just received her copy!

Meeting Yeshua's loving eyes

I had just finished a quite long day. I was about to close my computer and to prepare for the night when I saw Yeshua looking down on me. I just miraculously crossed His glance, in a very natural way. Yeshua our Savior has just allowed me to look into His eyes and my heart was filled with peace. His peace, the Shalom of His Spirit had come down into my soul.
Everything was in order, “beseder”, as the Hebrews would say. I cannot explain this feeling, but bathing into Yeshua’s eyes made everything fall into place.

Today has been a beautiful day, a truth-seeker has just invited Yeshua into his heart. The man was so happy that he wanted to shout out his joy to the whole world! Heaven rejoiced and my magnificent Savior concluded this amazing journey by granting me a deep look into His eyes.

This is now the fourth time Yeshua makes Himself visible to my eyes. I am truly blessed. Although the way He appears to me is very different every time it occurs to me, my soul instantly recognizes the One I love.

There is so much joy and so much peace in Yeshua's wonderful presence.
You might ask what Yeshua resembled this time. I raised my eyes upwards and
my sight was opened. Our Savior was dressed in white and had His dark brown hair loose. But what is really remarkable this time is that I was drawn into his eyes quite immediately. Without trembling, in a very fearless manner, Yeshua let me plunge my eyes into His. I am still unable to define His eye color. All I can say is that our Lord and Savior's eyes look like a deep ocean of kindness.
Looking at Him is the greatest blessing for the soul.
Through His exquisite eyes, I visited the immensity of His heart and for that I am so grateful.

The Testimony Of A Shoah/Holocaust Survivor

King Solomon: chosen by Hashem, man of wisdom, builder of the Temple

King Solomon is David's second son with Batsheva. After David, he is one of the kings who impacted and enriched Israel like no other.
Solomon is the author of Shir hashirim, the Song of the Songs, one of the most beautiful ode to love contained in the Bible. Solomon distinguished himself by the wisdom Hashem gave him in his judgments.
Because he requested wisdom and knowledge instead of wealth, possessions or honor, not only did the Lord grant him the wisdom he ad asked for, but  He added wealth, possessions and honor to it."

"Now, Lord God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust if the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?", Solomon requested.
And the Lord, who scans each man's heart, granted him much more than his demand:
"Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honors, nor for the death of your enemies , and since you have not asked for a long life but for the wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given to you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."

The Song of the songs, love song and mystical allegory

Shir hashirim is one of the most beautiful odes to love. Yet there are several degrees of understanding of the text that will take you into the mystical depths of a love that truly surpasses our understanding.
Jewish mystics have interpreted as an allegory for Hashem's everlasting love towards Israel.
"Ani ledodi vedodi li" (I belong to my beloved and my beloved is mine) also represents the delight of welcoming our Lord as a honor guest on the eve of Shabbat.
Christians have intrepreted as a symbolic of Yeshua's love for the the assembly of believers as a whole.
From a very personal point of view, the Song of the Song also speaks of the love Yeshua has for me and for all the hearts that are his. Experiencing Yeshua's love as I am living it daily is a real romance for the soul.

No matter how you intepret it, the Song of the Songs is powerful , beautiful and very refreshing to the soul.

Building the Temple in Jerusalem-powerful manifestations of Hashem

Solomon was a man of God, a man of prayer. Not only did Hashem listen to his prayers, but He also gave Solomon and the people of Israel some powerful signs of His presence.

A careful reading of the reports from 2 Chronicles 6 and 2 Chronicles 7 truly unveils the greatness of our Lord's majesty. Therefore we should all come before Him with your souls clothed with modesty.

Solomon is conscious of the greatness of Hashem. The words contained in his prayer are humble:
"For will God indeed dwell with man on the earth? The heavens, even the highest heavens, are not able to contain you, much less this house that I have built."

Let us take a few minutes to meditate on the greatness of our Lord.

By reading the story that is contained in the Second Book of Chronicles, chapter 6 and 7, we do witness a powerful theophany. Therefore the non-Jew must understand that the people of Israel who experienced these theophanies in a very powerful way do fear the Eternal in a very respectful way.
If the Tetragrammaton is occulted and replaced by Hashem, it is indeed a huge mark of deference towards the Creator (I made some enemies by stating that I agreed with orthodox Jews about not pronouncing the four letters of the revealed Name. Nevertheless, my point of view is that anybody should approach our Lord with an immense deference. He is the Maker of Heaven and earth and His glory is immense.

Can you picture witnessing this fire, as stated in 2 Chronicles 7?

"And when Solomon finished praying, fire came down from the heavens and consumed the burnt offering and sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. An the priests were not able to enter into the house of the Lord, for the glory of the Lord filled the Lord's house. And all the sons of Israel saw the fire came down and the glory of the Lord came on the temple and they bowed their faces low to the ground on the pavement, and they worshipped, confessing,
"The Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever."

Solomon's prayer was powerful and Hashem manifested His immense glory. No matter how close your relationship to Yeshua, remember that He is Lord. Think of paying Him the respect that is due.

Solomon's sins

Despite his great accomplishments and his deep relationship with Hashem, Solomon had a great weakness for foreign women. 
By committing sins of flesh and going after foreign divinities that his concubines worshipped, Solomon angered the God of Israel. But for the sake of King David's memory, Hashem would still preserve his kingdom until his death.
The kingdom of Israel would then experience division.

I came across websites where people were asking if Solomon was saved and if the prophets of the Tanakh were all saved, because they had sinned.

I'd qualify these interrogations of stupid and please let me address them.
You pretend to be believers. Now ask yourselves if you do have a real relationship with our Lord.
When you are praying, do you feel His presence and do you receive any supernatural manifestation from Him? Well Solomon did, Hashem appeared before him several times and you have the nerve to ask if Solomon was saved? Solomon was chosen, his writings are part of the Bible and over the Centuries he will be cited as a wonderful example of wisdom.
Therefore, before judging King Solomon examine the very depths of your hearts to see if you are even saved.

Solomon made his lot of mistakes, but He did have a real relationship with our Lord. Anybody who seeks His Face earnestly will experience His presence in a very concrete way. However, there are a few points to consider.
Being saved doesn't prevent somebody from sinning. Therefore, we should always examine our actions daily and have the humbleness to do our Teshuva when needed.
Let us also ask Him to give us His wisdom to handle any life situation we may face.

An Encounter with Yeshua the Sequel Review by Isabelle Esling

An Encounter with Yeshua the Sequel Review by Isabelle Esling: Author Isabelle Esling and her publishing company are proud to announce the release of An Encounter with Yeshua, the Sequel. This is the follow up of An Encounter with Yeshua.

Yongsung Kim: paintings that draw you into Yeshua's light

Whether they are writers, musicians or painters, artists have different ways of conveying their message to their audience. However, they all have something in common: through their work, they manage to make their public feel in a certain way. 
Because they make abstraction of  their ego, the artists who dedicated their work to the Lord are known to have released the biggest, everlasting masterpieces. Johann Sebastian Bach is one of them.
In the contemporary world of painting, Yongsung Kim's faith in Yeshua our Messiah impacts his work tremendously.
Today, I'd like you to discover the amazing artist a little bit more in depth.

Who is Yongsung Kim?

Yongsung Kim is a South-Korean artist who instils faith to his viewers through his unique way of sharing Yeshua. In a discrete, wordless but in a powerful outcry of the artist's heart, his pictures indicate that the artist has a deep and loving relationship with our Lord.
Love and devotion appear in his subtle light and shadow plays and the magnificent feelings he composes through the soft color combination he uses.
His painting technique is very genuine and subtle. The scenes that take place in the nature will allow you to perceive the trees' breathing. Moreover, Yongsung Kim's biblical art unveils our Lord's great spirit of compassion in each picture, whether he paints Him laughing, in pain, holding roses, or with children.

I believe that good art can draw people closer to our Lord. From my very personal story, Yeshua got my attention through a beautiful painting after the Shroud of Turin.

Let us explore Yongsung Kim's world.

Yeshua's dual nature revealed in Yongsung Kim biblical art

Here is a picture of Yeshua laughing, very spontaneously. Our Lord is dwelling among us and He is inviting us to share His joy. The light, ethearal background put a spotlight on elevated feelings: joy, gratitude, the pleasure of being alive. Our Creator is laughing with us, providing hope to mankind.

I particularly like Yongsung Kim's depictions of Yeshua laughing and smiling, because too many artists occulted our Lord's joy. I've even heard people affirm that Yeshua was a sad person. Rather the contrary is true. Whoever was approached by Yeshua knows that He is love and deep joy.
Our Lord's humanity is so much present in this picture  and so beautifully rendered.

Yeshua's divine nature represented

With Yeshua walking on the water , the attentive viewer enters into a supernatural dimension quite immediately. Yongsung Kim uses subtle layers of blue colors in order to create a movement. We can sense a little bit of turbulence inside of the water while Yeshua walks in the middle of the Sea of Galilee. The picture also seems to be scanning the depths of the water, as the stones reflect in a very subtle manner.
We do pray to have enough faith to be able to walk on the water as well, as long as possible, with an unwavering faith...we suddenly realize that we are all one immersed in the infinite ocean of His love.

The good shepherd, nature and everlasting love for children

The soft touches of green beautify all paintings of the artist and will transport you into the universe of Psalm 23 quite immediately. 
Yongsung Kim also has a very touching way of showing our Lord in the middle of little children.
The Good News is being announced and spread in front of the viewers' astonished eyes: so much authentic nature scenes, so much goodness, so much beauty and compassion.
Yongsung Kim's biblical art touches the human heart by a description of Yeshua that is beyond words.

The Creator's Song (from "Heart of a Savior")

My child, I want your ear to be attentive to the love song your Creator has composed for you in subtle notes.

Now let my Spirit transport you near the Sea of Galilee. The sun is rising and you are sitting barefoot in the grass. You are now tasting the freshness of the air and drops from the morning dew are falling on your face. As you look up to the sky, the clouds are mixing with a pink background that is becoming lighter and lighter.
The birds are uttering their first notes of praise. The earth is exhaling scents of flowers and quantities of subtle perfumes.
Your back is leaning on a tree. You are filled with my infinite Shalom.
There is a slight wind passing through the branches of the trees. The soft whisper your ear is catching envelops your body into a warm breathing that gradually decrypts itself as a declaration of love to your heart.

Your hair is floating softly. Your heart starts singing. Words of love, words of adoration, high praise to your Creator spread out of your lips.

As you keep on singing, the partition changes. The warm breath of the wind undergoes a metamorphosis. Soft harp sounds accompany you.

As you keep on singing, the song gets louder and stronger.
Your eyes open to the sight of a brand new day.

As you keep on singing, multitudes of voices are joining you. Coming from all sides, the voices are lifting your heart.
You are closing your eyes. When you open them again, you realize that you are not alone. The Heavens opened up today. Angels are singing with you.

You are in awe. A deep feeling of joy and harmony arises into your heart.
As you are placing your hand onto your heart, someone is softly touching it. As you glance back, you notice that the One you love was holding you since the beginning and chanting along with you with the participation of the whole creation.

You just witnessed the birthing of a brand new day near Kinneret. I am taking your hand. My daughter, I am inviting you to new adventures.
