Words of Encouragement

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...

Walking in Darkness

Our verse for today, written by John, was to BELIEVERS who already had a relationship with Abba FATHER GOD (born-again believers) but needed a reminder of how to remain in fellowship with Him. Although believers have been made new in MESSIAH (2 Corn. 5:17), we are not...

Endless Compassion

GOD’S care for us extends to the details of our lives. He knows when we are hurting and wants to offer comfort! His compassion is personal, continuous and always available! The RUACH HAKODESH, who lives inside each and every believer, also comforts us. He is there to...

God’s Priorities

At times, people will say, “I’ve made YESHUA a part of my life.” But this statement reveals that they have missed the point. The truth is, YESHUA can never be simply a “part of life.”  At the time of salvation, YESHUA becomes our life—everything revolves around Him...

Acts of Love

As we grow in the LORD, we will make mistakes. As a result, we need to know how to receive GOD’S loving correction. He does this only because He loves us and wants us to know that He cares about what is best for us.                                       People who...

Life’s Motivations

Freedom is one of humanity’s most prized possessions! Yet many people are in captivity. You see, we aren’t just physical beings; we are also spiritual. We can be enslaved spiritually as well as physically. YESHUA  said that anyone who commits sin is in bondage to it,...

Faith Factor

The Apostle James challenges us to understand the connection between faith and obedience. He writes in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead! In other words, we cannot have the unshakable faith we spoke of yesterday without obedience! Developing steadfast trust...

No Excuses

Even though the Bible clearly states that every believer receives a spiritual gift, some nevertheless think they were overlooked. So they go through life as a Messiah Follower refusing to serve.  Others are so busy wishing they had a different ability that they do not...

We All Have Choices

Like many people today, the Israelites in YESHUA’S time believed they were destined for Heaven!  They mistakenly thought that to join GOD’S family, good works and an intellectual faith were all GOD required. To help us grasp the truth about entering His FATHER’S...

Blessed Assurance

  If you feel guilty about sins from your past, our Scripture today has a blessed assurance for you!                                       Paul addresses the Corinthian believers who too were struggling with these doubts about past sins as believers of today...

Stop and Listen

In the Word, we read stories about GOD speaking to His prophets, and He still speaks to us today the same way! We need to listen for that small, still voice; don’t let the busyness of this life keep you from hearing from Him. The first time He spoke was through the...

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.
