The Pesah holiday is referred to as "z'man heruteinu", "the time of our freedom". And that's exactly how it was: almost all of our people became the people of liberated slaves. But it must be remembered that many Egyptians, who were not slaves in Egypt, joined them.

Such Illogical Anti-Semitism

It is useless to prove to the anti-Semites that they are wrong. Listen to what Haman said (this is an image of all accusations against the Jews): "... There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples..." (Esth. 3:8) He accuses the Jews that they are not gathered in one place, they do not live separately, they are scattered among other nations. So if the Jews were gathered in one place, would Haman calmed down?

Run away from self-pity!

Self-pity often prevents us from getting God's liberty in different situations and problems. We feel sorry for ourselves when our plans and hopes are crashing. This condition can fuel us in holding a grudge against God and we unable to free ourselves from heaviness and pain. It is difficult for us to accept God's comfort because we are comforting ourselves. A paradox isn't it. But we are comforting ourselves by our own problem: pains, fears, an unfair attitude to ourselves. After all, we might need some compensating equivalent not necessarily sinful but one that is not from God. 

Yulia Polozova "Why I`m here?"

Before coming to Congregation, I had spent my life trying to hide my Jewish identity. When I was a child, I did it because of the anti-Semitic manifestations and other aggression I experienced at school, but after that, I continued to hide who I was out of fear, of new undeserved insults.

Not surprisingly, when I turned to God in the Bible during this time, I could not see the Jewish roots, Jewishness or the God of Israel.

I was already a believer a few years later when I joined Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation. It was here that God began to “unfreeze” me. My deep rooted fears began to leave me step by step and, I began to accept myself as a Jew. It was a long process as my heart was full of fear and confusion. Honestly, it was my spiritual family who ultimately helped me to understand and truly accept myself as a Jew. Finally, I felt good and comfortable in life. I realized that the very thing I was made to feel ashamed of earlier in my life was indeed a privilege … even a responsibility. I realized it was possible to be one of His people without feeling shame. I found out it was possible to be a Jewish believer like others, accepted by our Father. Not only that, but perhaps the most interesting thing I realized that all of those fears and the inner bondage I carried had severely limited my fellowship with God. As I became free from the inside, the things God had designed for me as a Jewish woman began to unfold in my life.

I keep feeling the fullness of joy and fellowship with my Lord for many years. This is very cool and I’m really happy!
