TRUTH without Grace 

is a PRISON,

Grace without TRUTH 

is CHAOS

"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."

John 1:17


          January 1, 2020, Yeshu'a Ministries will be debuting the Leslie Montgomery Truth & Grace program.   The producers of the show, including Leslie, have felt led by the Lord, to create a format where often taboo topics within the body of Christ are discussed openly, without condemnation, but with truth, grace, and most importantly, redemption.   While we want to believe the demoralizing and traumatizing statistics of the world have not affected the church, the truth is, they've penetrated it.  Leslie will be interviewing a variety of people on topics such as abortion, domestic violence, homosexuality, suicide, sexual assault, sexual addiction, and a barrage of other topics like pastoral burnout, suffering, living with the death of a child, bitterness and unforgiveness, people who have been wounded by the church, and so much more.  Unlike other Christian television shows, Truth & Grace will not be merely a program about one person's story, but about providing sound biblical advice about overcoming through Christ, and will feature pastors, theologians, and other experts in the field who can help listeners find freedom in Christ through the Bible.  


Why the name Truth & Grace?


          The Lord put this show on our hearts months ago, and as we began praying about it, as often happens with the Lord, the words 'Truth & Grace' repeatedly showed themselves to be prevalent in what the Lord wanted in the title.   The prayer team felt strongly that 'truth' needed to be first and foremost in the title, because in today's world there is so much 'greasy grace', that is, confusion about God tolerating sin because of His love for us.  In order for us to truly understand and appreciate His grace, we must first know the Truth of God, how much our sin cost Him, and that grace is not a given, but is a gift.  Thus, the name, Truth & Grace was born.   


What does Truth & Grace really mean? 

          After God gave us the name of the show, He took us directly (literally) to John 1:17, which says, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."     This verse defines the difference between the Old and New Testament and the ministries of Moses and Jesus.  God gave Moses the ministry of law (think Ten Commandments).  The purpose of the law is to show us that we fall short from God's ideal of perfection, that we are broken (Romans 3:20).   This is important for us to recognize. Everyone sins and we all fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Jesus' ministry was not only to bring us Truth, but to bring us God's grace through His sacrifice.  Instead of just telling us we were broken like the law did, Jesus gave us the way to fix the problem by providing a way for us to experience forgiveness through His sacrifice on Calvary.  How does grace fit into all of this? Well, first,by realizing there is nothing, including good deeds or being a "good person" that can save us.  So, how can we be saved?  By God's grace, through faith.  Grace is unmerited favor. That is, you can't earn it, but you can get it through faith.  Faith is believing and trusting in God and His Word.  For more information about this, please click the 'Find Peace with God' tab. 


UPCOMING PROGRAMS

Leslie Montgomery

Show: 001

Release: January 6, 2020

Topic: Suffering

Leslie Montgomery is no stranger to suffering.  Her family tree began when her father raped her mother at gun-point when she was only seventeen, and then was forced to marry him by her own mother. 


With her father's panache for violence, alcohol, and prejudice towards women, driven by underlying rage and insatiable power and control, Leslie was abused in every way imaginable by him, as well as by her grandfather. Haunted by the abuse and covered with a blanket of shame, Leslie attempted suicide for the first time at twelve-years-old. 


When she was unsuccessful, she rebelled against everything and everyone; she quit school, became sexually promiscuous, jumped head first into drugs and alcohol, and didn't look back for years to come. At nineteen, she was married and divorced, had two children, had an abortion, tried to commit suicide more times than she can recall, and was facing time in the Idaho Department of Corrections. No one expected Leslie to become little more than a statistic, but God had a different plan for her life.


Through a series of unexpected events that can only be attributed as miracles in Leslie’s life, God set her life onto a path with a promise to “restore the years eaten away by the locust” (Jeremiah 29:11). 


Over the course of the following ten years Leslie began the process of healing from her past, completed school, became a counselor working with abused teens, worked extensively as a writer for Focus on the Family, among other world-wide ministries and media outlets, began her own radio program, and became a sought out speaker and Bible teacher.


Since that time, she has authored and ghostwritten thirteen books, remarried and had two additional children. But life has not all been a bed of roses as a Christian. Leslie has gone on to endure great tragedy and trials.   Listen to this broadcast to find out how she's endured and overcome through her faith.  

Ken DelHousaye

Show: 002

Release: Jan. 13, 2020

Topic: Pastoral Burnout

Kent DelHousaye has successfully led two large and established churches through significant transition and growth when both were initially stuck and struggling to thrive.

  

However, after successfully serving as a pastor for over two decades, Kent began to struggle with anxiety, fell into depression and experienced total burnout.  It took him a year to recover and find health again. 


In the midst of his own resurgence, Kent developed a compassion and empathy for those who grapple with anxiety and depression - specifically those who lead.  Although he already retained a masters degree in communication, and a doctorate in philosophy, he received consulting credentials, and became trained and certified as a professional executive coach to help others journey through the trials he himself had gone through.  


Since that time, Kent has  served leaders around the world in churches, para-church ministries, schools, non-profit organizations, and for-profit corporations by helping them develop and overcome barriers that inhibit personal effectiveness and impede organizational success.
