My name is Morah. No, that is not my real name, but simply means female teacher in Hebrew. From what denomination am I? I follow the same God as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Peter and John. You should not blindly trust a word I say because of how I identify myself. You should weigh everything I say against the revealed Word of God.
Today, too many people are trying to make a name for themselves by cheapening the Gospel with slick marketing and clever anecdotes. Rarely is the true Message given in other than one or two verses taken out of context. I want to change that. Faith comes by hearing the Word preached. That is what brings conviction. I don’t want this to be about me, I want to give all the glory to Him who has put this calling within my heart.
My journey as a believer started at four years old. Yes, I can remember the day I accepted the call in the basement of our small rural church – the place that generations of my family had worshiped together. Growing up in the Church, I felt that I had a pretty good grasp of what it said….until I was challenged as a young adult on an extremely controversial issue. It doesn’t matter what that issue was, but only that I had a decision to make. Did I stay offended or study to make sure my position was consistent with the Bible? After some tough soul-searching, I decided that I should have a clear understanding of the faith of which I expressed belief.
So, we come to this site. Hopefully it will become a place others will come to study together. I challenge you to open your own Bible and see with your own eyes what it truly says. Not what your parents told you. Not what your pastor or priest told you. Not what I tell you.
If you don’t have a Bible, get one. I don’t necessarily care what version; sometimes it’s better to have multiple translations for a study in order to broaden your understanding of the topic. One might point you in a direction you otherwise would never have thought of going.
What others say about Morah
I have known [Morah] for the past twelve years. What has consistently impressed me has been her voracious appetite for the Scriptures, and her flexibility to God’s leading and direction in her personal study sessions. As a result, her knowledge base is quite expansive, and she is masterful in the way she connects Scriptural truths to the subjects she researches. Some of the topics He has directed her to study have been dark, but she has been diligent to go forward because she trusts His leading. Much of what we face today as believers is spiritual wickedness in high places, and God has instructed her to become savvy and knowledgeable so that her warfare against darkness is not only accurate, but precise. Beyond this, [Morah] has an incredibly compassionate heart, a positive attitude, and a passion to share what God reveals to her, because God has good news to share with us! When she shares, whether while leading a bible study or in a one-on-one conversation, she continually prays about what and how to share for that particular group or person. Over the years, I have seen [Morah] become even more in tune to God’s voice, and as a result, what she shares out of the bible becomes a dynamic experience of learning from her as she is being led by the Holy Spirit. This results in personal takeaways specific to our needs in that very moment. As much as she has studied, she remains humble, flexible, and excited to learn from others as well. [Morah] has my highest endorsement as a bible teacher or mentor!
I have known [Morah] for the last 13 years, and for the last 8 years she has been my Bible Study teacher. After many years of attending church and various Bible Studies I realized I was missing something but could not put my finger on what it was. I have heard many sermons on “How to Improve Your Marriage in 3 weeks” or “How to Share the Gospel More Effectively” or “What to Do When Your Fig Tree Doesn’t Blossom” or “Tithing” leaving me wonder is this all there is to know about God and His Word? The answer is no, there is so much more to learn than what we get with the same repetitive sermons or Bible Studies. The Bible encourages us to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Morah has shown me that it’s not enough to just get people saved or to go to church. Believers need to “study to show themselves approved” (2 Timothy 2:15). While Morah has walked with me on this journey through the Word, she has not only showed me but others what true discipleship means. What makes you a great teacher is not just what you teach but that you are teachable. Morah is exactly that, teachable.
The Bible tells us that “The days are coming (The Last Days),” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land– not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it” (Amos 8:11-12). This is where Morah steps in covering much deeper topics than you’ll receive in just your typical Bible Study and helps you see the Bible through a completely different perspective.
So, if you want to learn, grow and be taught, you’ve come to the right place. Be prepared to see scripture in a whole new light with greater depth and understanding. Be prepared to take what you’ve learned and disciple others since this is one of our great missions in life.
My journey of faith
Countless generations of my family walked the same aisles and prayed at the same altar of this little country church.
I got down on my knees during Sunday School to profess my faith in a Savior, no doubt influenced by the sounds of praise coming from my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Top of the World & Gift of Tongues
Started speaking in “tongues” during an evening church service. Was also “slain in the spirit” during this or subsequent service. (*Read my Part 1 blog to see my thoughts now.)
During a large Christian music festival in which I was tasked to lead people to salvation, I forgot my Bible, made no impact, and lead no one to Christ.
Began study of “New Age”
Started reading every book that I could on how the New Age was infiltrating the Church. Tried to warn Pastors, but no one listened.
Job in Alternative Health
Received years of training in different areas of alternative health, including the underlying belief systems of manufacturers and their products.
A cousin in the ministry had a vision of my family that showed us living our faith differently after major changes to our life.
A challenge to our faith
My stepfather posed a spiritual question that led to a complete change in how we approach God.
A fresh way to worship
After doing some deep diving into Scripture, we decided to truly coronate the Lord as King in our lives, something those who don’t live under monarchies know nothing about.
Started helping teach Hebrew
Our children also started on the journey to learning more in-depth Biblical concepts and Hebrew language studies.
Beginning Hebrew & Feasts of God
Decided to bring the concepts I had learned to the Christian homeschool community by teaching at a local co-op. Also started a Bible study for interested moms in the group.
Out-of-the-box Bible study
Started teaching three studies a week to those who wanted to learn what religious ideas we had held onto that were NOT in the Bible.
Encouraging others to think spiritually as we await the coming of Messiah.
