International recording artist and worship leader Paul Wilbur will be giving a concert at Beth Shiloh Messianic Synagogue in Asheville, North Carolina this Shabbat, February 27, at 7:00 pm. The concert will be free to the public, and there will even be carpooling available.

Paul has been a staple in the Messianic worship community for decades, and he is always striving for the heart of God. Albums such as Shalom Jerusalem! and Jerusalem Arise! have been played in Messianic congregations and homes all throughout the Movement. God has used Paul’s ministry in a mighty way, and He continues to use him!

This will be a special time to gather together and worship the Lord in unity. “The heart of worship is communication,” Paul says, “from our hearts to God.” Beth Shiloh invites anyone who is able to attend to be part of this communing of hearts to our one true Messiah this Saturday evening.

John writes that the Messiah says, “Behold, I am coming soon...” (Rev. 22:12). With the busyness of everyday life, it is easy to overlook this amazing reality that one day, we will meet Yeshua face to face. “Hu Yavo” (“He Will Come”), Joshua Aaron’s latest album, puts His Second Coming in the spotlight. One day, He will come and reign from His Holy Hill in Jerusalem and establish His kingdom forever!

Aaron, by no means, is a stranger to the Messianic music scene. With three other albums released (a fourth in the works!) and over 7 million YouTube views of his music videos, he and his family now reside near the Sea of Galilee. He is also a gifted Integrity Music songwriter. Concerning “Hu Yavo”, he says, “Every song has its own place it came from. When I heard that phrase, ‘Hu Yavo’, something so special stood out.” Not only is the writing excellent, but also a wide variety of sounds and instruments are featured on the record. He says “I had an honest desire to combine traditional sounds from my Ashkenazi roots with contemporary instruments.” Listeners will enjoy hearing the older sounds of the violin, mandolin, and banjo along with driving guitar rhythms, deep synths, and even a ukulele!
