Brianna’s Musings

Follow the Leader

A leader, as exemplified in the Bible, holds a transformative power when creating a new community, house, or kingdom. Moses, a remarkable leader, guided the Israelites as they evolved into a new nation. Yet, Yeshua’s leadership surpasses even that of Moses, leading humanity into a new creation by renewing our hearts. The role of a […]

Distinctions and Divisions

We are still learning to come out of the House of Bondage and into the House of God. We talked about recognizing a need and asking for help. Then, we must be aware of shame cycles keeping us oppressed and repent, turning toxic shame into healthy shame. The last step we reviewed is to allow […]


We made it to Passover-woohoo! Over the last two weeks, I have tried to show some steps Israel had to take toward freedom or redemption. The first step was to recognize a need and ask for help. Israel cried out to God. Next, self-reflection was needed to expose how they were seeped in toxic shame […]


I have always felt like shame was the underlying issue of addiction, but I could not put my finger on it. It seemed like a heavy garment that people wore that I could feel, but I couldn’t figure out how to remove it for myself or my loved ones. The Great House of Bondage could […]

The Quest to Freedom

Having many loved ones in my life who struggle with addiction has encouraged me to apply myself to understand how to achieve freedom from the Great House of Bondage. The king of Egypt was called Pharaoh, and Pharaoh translates into Great House. The Israelites became slaves in this Great House.  God created humans to inhabit […]

Devils, Demons, and Darkness, Oh My! Part Two

Richard Horsley is a leading Bible scholar on the book of Mark, and in his book, Hearing The Whole Story: The Politics of Plot in Mark’s Gospel, he describes the main story in the synoptic gospels of a “demoniac” as an ironic play on the effects of Roman oppression. When wicked rulers oppress their subjects, they […]

Kings and Kingdoms

Revelation 12:7-9: And war broke out in heaven, Michael and his angels making war against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought, but they were not strong enough, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down—the ancient serpent called the devil and satan, who […]

Adam to Edom

I love, love Jacob’s story. It is most likely reminiscent of most of our stories. Esau could represent the earthly part of humanity, and Jacob the spiritual nature. In Genesis 1:26, God said, “Let us make man in Our image.” Many Christian commentators try to make this verse about the Trinity, while some Rabbis say […]


A recent community study through the Gospels using the Bema Discipleship Podcast has brought some clarification for me. In one of the podcasts (Season 3, Episode 75) Mr. Solomon credits Alexander the Great with establishing this sort of New World Order, in which he uses education, healthcare, a strong army, and entertainment to create a […]

Man and Beast

Last week’s Torah Portion was about Noah. In chapter eleven, there is a story of humans building a house where they could place their name. This story would be the opposite of God’s design, where humans create a House for His Name to dwell, the Temple. 11 Chronicles 7:16: For now I have chosen and […]
