Messiah Echad’s Rebbetzin or First Lady, Melinda Dade, presented to our children Re’eh (See), from Deuteronomy 11:26 – 16:17. This was about receiving blessings or curses, from if we follow the commandments or not. And we cross-referenced Numbers 18, to better understand the tithe in Deuteronomy 14. Then in the main teaching, Rabbi Jonathan prepared us for Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets, by reading Leviticus 23:23-25. We discussed the Tashlikh Service derived from Micah 7:19, where we will symbolically cast off our sins, although we know it is Messiah, who ultimately cleansed us from our sins. Lastly, Minister Faith prepared the children for Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement, by covering Leviticus 23:26-32.

Pastor David shared on Eikev or As A Result, from Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25. We learned that listening to the Lord and following his words, is a direct responsibility of every believer. James 2:10, Mathew 5:17, John 14:15, Romans 10:17, Hebrew 11:6 and Romans 12:3, were cross referenced to show a loving keeping of our beliefs, while not being “under” them. Then Rabbi Jonathan concluded our series on Job; a man who lost everything and had miserable comforters. In the final section, (1) Yahweh (God) reminded Job of man’s place (Job 38:19-21). Next (2) Yahweh described how Leviathan or Satan can wreak havoc on our lives but is also under The Creator. With that, Job repented (Job 42:6) and forgave his wrongdoers (Job 42:10-16), enabling his later years to be blessed twice over.
