Words of Encouragement

Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Our Soon Coming King

Today  I am going to ask you to turn to Revelation 19:11-16; there we see YESHUA exalted as the King of Kings! These verses tell us He will judge the wicked and set up His kingdom! We see YESHUA riding  His white horse in power and great glory, which is so different...

Created for Praise

We pray that each and everyone of you had a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones and that praises went up to the Throne Room giving GOD the honor that is due Him! Our Creator, “maker of heaven and earth,” made us in His image with the main purpose...

Saving Grace

GOD has predestined every believer to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, YESHUA! The process begins at salvation and continues until we join Him in Heaven!  The apostle Paul is a good example of the LORD’S power to transform an unrighteous man into an...

Emotion of Loneliness

GOD’S desire is that all people feel connected to Him and to each other.  When we feel the emotion of loneliness, we can be quickly comforted by responding wisely!  The first step is to enter into a personal relationship with YESHUA; believing He exists is not...

Ambassadors for Yeshua

YESHUA says that there is one way people will know whether we belong to Him or not, and that is our love for one another. Love is the distinguishing sign of a MESSIAH FOLLOWER. It's what sets us apart from the rest of the world. The world is looking for something to...

Day of Reckoning

Every person without exception will one day stand before GOD and give an account of their life! I encourage you today not to live like there is no tomorrow; tomorrow always comes! Yeshua will come for us (believers) when we least expect it, and then it will be too...

Religious Fluff

 How important is the Word of GOD to you?  If you don’t really care enough about the Word to abide in it, you are going to be in for trouble in these last days in which we live!  “Religious Fluff” is not going to be enough to get us through; we have to be deeply...

No Idols, Please

We were created to love the LORD and be loved by Him. Anything that competes for our devotion simply doesn’t fit our life’s purpose!  We need to keep in our spirit that the most important mission of our life here on this earth is to love our GOD with all our heart,...


Anonymous author: I was reading in Hebrews 11 about Abraham offering up his only son and that God COULD HAVE raised him from the dead (v 19), but ultimately, He didn't need to. However, when it came time for HIM to offer up His only begotten Son, the deed was...

God’s Master Plan

We were all created by our LORD to be a unique creation! GOD did this on purpose. And just like He created the sun, moon and stars to be in their own glory, we were created differently for the glory of GOD!  See, each of us meets a need for GOD’S overall plan. Each...

A Prophetic Song “Over the Rainbow”

Did you know that “Over the Rainbow” was not written about the mythical Land of Oz? "Over the Rainbow" was written about the homeland of the Jews, which is Israel! The lyrics were written by Yip Harburg, the youngest of four children born to Russian-Jewish immigrants....

The Peace of God

Are you at peace today? Nothing is worth anything if you don’t have peace! Even having great wealth is no good without peace! You cannot put a price on the value of peace. You can spend your whole life trying to climb the ladder of success and it could consume you...

Yeshua Our Rock

Although the world will say, “The only constant is change,” that is not true because there is One who never changes! His name is MESSIAH YESHUA! He always remains the same. What a comfort for believers. But how can you take refuge in someone you don’t know?  Do you...

The Path of Life

What is your response if GOD doesn’t fulfill a burning desire?  For some people, unmet longing feels like the worst thing that could happen. It makes their entire life seem disappointing and incomplete! So they pursue their dreams themselves either in opposition to...

Dare to Be Bold

Bold means to be brave, darling, courageous, and intrepid!  GOD is calling us to be bold. He hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but of power and permission to fearlessly, confidently and boldly draw near the Throne of Grace! This means we go into the presence of...

Showing Love

One of the easiest ways to show love to others is to help them feel valuable. Most Messiah followers don’t have a sense of their value as a child of the most high GOD! The thought that GOD loves them and sees them as precious never entered their minds. The devil...

Never Give Up

Let’s remember that life will always consist of problems, frustrations and difficulties! That’s just life! So, knowing that we can’t make all our problems go away, what do we do? First, we must remain steadfast and persevere! In other words, “Never give up!”  The...

Legally Righteous

One day, the wrath of GOD will rightly fall on sinful mankind (Romans 5:8-10); but those who are justified by the blood of MESSIAH (accepted YESHUA as Savior) will be saved from that dreadful punishment!  Justification means that ABBA THE FATHER, accepts the death of...

Spiritual Nourishment

It is known that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It starts our day off right with the fuel our bodies need! Now, what about our hearts and minds? They also need fuel for our day.  We can fill each new day by beginning it with time set aside for our...


Doubt is destructive! It fills us with uncertainty, makes us indecisive, and affects our ability to connect with GOD and receive His wisdom.        We need to understand that GOD loves us all the time, even when we are disobedient! His love for us does not change with...

Noise & Busyness

Have you ever wondered what impulse makes people want to break the silence of entering a quiet home by putting on the TV or radio?  These sounds are a temporary need to not feel alone! GOD desires an intimate relationship with each person, so He created us with a...

Bright Future

People who have a sad past need to be able to believe in a bright future! It’s all about vision. Let’s ask ourselves today, “Do I have vision?” Vision is something we see in our minds (a mental sight). It may be something GOD plants in us supernaturally (through the...

Take Time to Listen

If you have never experienced the presence of GOD, you may wonder how He reveals Himself to believers. He has many different ways of reaching out to His children (followers of  YESHUA). First, GOD can speak to you. I have not often heard the LORD’S audible voice, but...

Anything Is Possible

Continuing on with our battle over the flesh, we absolutely need to be feeding our spirits every single day, which means spending time in prayer and in the Word of GOD. As a result, we will learn to think like GOD thinks and say what GOD says! Instead of thinking and...

Lingering Anger

There is always a price to be paid for holding onto bitterness! Most people think that if their grudge is justified, they have the right to nurture it. Sometimes life can hurt and anger does sprung up, but that resentment can take a horrible toll on one’s life, in...

L’Chaim means “to LIFE!” and we pray that you find LIFE in Yeshua,

the Messiah, the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE!

L’Chaim Messianic Congregation is a congregation of Jews and non-Jews who believe Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Messiah of Israel.

We exist to reach the local, pre‑believing Jewish people with the fact that Scripture is God’s inspired and true Word, that Yeshua is the Risen Messiah of Israel, and that an abiding faith in Him is His only provision for eternal life in Heaven with the Lord.

L’Chaim Messianic Congregation has been faithfully serving the Florida cities of West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Lantana, and the greater Southeast Florida, Palm Beach County community since 2003.

During the Shabbat Service, we include appropriate elements from traditional Jewish Services, including liturgical prayers and reading from the Hebrew Scriptures (Torah), with Messianic praise, worship, and dance as we are led by the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit.

Our congregation leader, Pastor Bruce Elman, then shares an encouraging message from the Word of God and explains how it applies to our lives. Following the main service, we gather for the Oneg Shabbat lunch, fellowship, Bible study and Hebrew classes.
