A Crucified Way of Life

Mamogosnan gives the power to be overcomers in this life.

Ngotek ngi giwani igwan o Zhezhos gi nizhokmoshet emnobmadziyan

Once I was wandering in this world, lost and lonely, until the Lord Jesus came into my life. He has since showed me how to live an overcoming life, putting the old flesh and its desires to death, each time that old nature arises to challenge the peace and tranquility I was given from the Lord God.

About Us

Our Beliefs

We Neshnabek or Native People have always been a One God People, that is we believe there is only one God over all things, but that he lives within all things. We were not taught about the blood sacrifice that takes away sin in our lives. What is sin, one might ask? It is any action, any word, any thought that would separate one from fellowship with the God of our beliefs.

We were taught that our teachings and ceremonies were the paramount things that made us who and what we were as Neshnabek. Teachings and ceremonies alone cannot wipe the slate clean from sin though. Something else is needed, and that something else is the sacrifice of life the God gave when he came into this world to redeem mankind, Neshnabek included. That sacrifice had to do with his taking on the form of life we all were living and then surrendering it to the death he suffered on the Cross of Calvary.

In other words, he became flesh to experience life as we knew it, thus negating any other power that would attempt to rob any of us of the freedom of worshiping him as we were meant to. I am made alive again through the acceptance of his life, death and his resurrection, for he did become alive again, proving he had the power to take up his life again, even after he was put to death on the Cross of Calvary.

He is the God of my forbears and he is my God. I have accepted the blood sacrifice he offered to redeem me unto himself, that I might truly fellowship with him. We Neshnabek have always prided ourselves in fellowship with our God, and living with all the natural elements of this world. He lives within all of these elements and he also lives in the Universe of Universes, as well as having the power to inhabit my flesh, ode Jibamen etoyan, i.e., my body, soul and spirit. He alone can cause me to move and have the power of his being.

Joseph’s coat of many colors

Beware of Royal Apparel!  The story of Joseph and his brothers forms the last part of the book of Genesis. This story begins in our new Torah Portion, Vayeshev. It opens with the word Vayeshev (hence the name of the Portion), usually translated as “settled”, or “dwelt”: “Now Jacob dwelt in the land where his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.” I have written about it before, but would like to emphasize it once again: in Hebrew, the contrast between the words describing Jacob and describing “his father”, is striking! The wordיָשַב  (yashav) means something sedentary, permanent, stable; it is understood…

The Face of God.

Lost In Translation: Face Of God By Julia Blum November 24, 2021No comments Our portion today, VeYishlah, covers two very important meetings in Jacob’s life. Traditionally, the encounter at Peniel is considered the most important event in Jacob’s life—and rightly so, it defined not only Jacob’s own name and destiny,  but the name and destiny of the whole people! However, I would like to bring your attention to the often-overlooked fact that this encounter – indeed, the most important encounter of Jacob’s life – happens right before his meeting with Esau! Have you ever thought about it? Twenty years have…
