Pastor Brian covered Vayikra “And He Called”, from Leviticus 1:1 – 5:26. We discussed how the burnt offerings make a sweet aroma to the Lord and we explored the significance of the different sacrifices. Then in the main teaching, Rabbi Jonathan covered Discerning of Spirits. We began in Ephesians 6:12, to understand spiritual warfare, then we went to I John 1:5-6, to distinguish between voices of God and those of the enemy. Next, Luke 10:19 showed us the abilities we have while discerning spirits and finally, we saw all of this in action when our Messiah dispelled the legion spirits (Mark 5:1-13). The audio recording is online and if you have not done so already, check out the Messiah Echad Video. Lastly, don’t forget next week is Purim… everyone is invited to join, wear a biblically inspired or family friendly garment, and bring a biblically kosher dish. We will be in the side room for Purim and we look forward to seeing you!
Ted Pearce led an amazing worship and during his songs, even some of our men stepped out in dance. Praise Yahweh (God), for when our men join us in the ministry of dance! As for the parsha, Rabbi Jonathan summarized “Accountings Of”, from Exodus 38:21 – 40:38, where precious metals were inventoried and used for sockets, hooks and priestly garments. Then in the main teaching, we continued on our series of the Nine Gift by looking at Words of Wisdom. We explored the Wisdom of Solomon (I Kings 3:16-28) and we also studied wisdom in Proverbs 4:6-7. Remember that knowledge is strategy or making decisions from what we know, whereas wisdom is making decisions from things we do not know. The audio recording is online and so is our new video (http://youtu.be/iNpbQ4w5wUU). Feel free to let the video be a Words of Wisdom, helping you in the Ministry of Reconciliation and building Yahweh’s Kingdom.
