Slavery and Negative Jesus – JLD

In the midst of deep sorrow, I see Your light is breaking through. The dark of night will not overtake me, I am pressing into You… I am not alone! Amen, and may each of our listeners, never feel alone. Brother Mitch covered parsha Mishpatim, Judgments, Exodus 21:1 – Exodus 24:18, and the big question was if torah is an archaic set of rules, or an eternal tree of life? It all comes down to Torah vs. Political Correctness. Next was praise reports, and prayer requests, after which Rabbi Jonathan allegorically challenged the negative connotations that some people connect to sweet, gentle Jesus. Is there another way, a positive way, to view Yeshua, even when He did not appear “gentle” or “sweet”? Deep things to consider, and we invite you to ponder them with us, next weekend, during Purim Shabbat. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/25-Feb-2017-Slides.pdf

Covenant and One Law – JLD

There is a sweet anointing in the sanctuary. There is a stillness in the atmosphere… come lay down the burdens you have carried, for in the sanctuary, God is here. Amen. In the torah portion, Brother Adam covered Yitro, Jethro, from Exodus 18:1 – 20:23. By studying the Hebrew, one might see God’s message applying to all mankind, not just those at Mt. Sinai. Hmm. Then was the establishment of a court system (Elders), the Ten Commandments, and the admonition to pursue righteousness. Great segue drash, which after praise reports and prayer requests, dovetailed beautifully into Brother Mitch’s asking if there is One Law, Two Laws, or more? We know this is hotly debated topic that (wrongly) separates Messianic Judaism from Hebrew Roots Christianity; what does the bible say?

Tribulation and Being Renewed – JLD

גדול אלוהי שירו כי גדול אלוהי כל אחד יראה. How great is our God. We invite you to declare right now, how great our God is… He can do a mighty work for you! In the torah portion, Brother Phillip covered Beshalach, When He Sent, from Exodus 13:17 – 17:16. The Children of Israel were led into spiritual baptism and complained often, but God reiterated the importance of tests and tribulations. Rejoice in those trials, surround yourself with good people, and follow God. Then after praise reports, to include welcoming Anthony back from war, and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan gave us a goal, told us it will be difficult to achieve, then equipped us to handle the tribulations. If you want to be renewed, delivered from your old man nature, listen to this message! You can do it, and we love you.

Russia, Exodus, and Valentines – JLD

We began by greeting our Russian Speaking Listeners… Пожалуйста, наслаждайтесь наше короткое объявление, для всех наших русскоговорящих слушателей. Fun, and for praise and worship, we included Risen, from our soon to be released “Celebrate” Album. In the torah portion, Pastor Harry mentioned a few names of God, before covering Enter, Exodus 10:1 – 13:16, on the plague of locusts, and that of darkness. Yet it took the tenth plague, death of the first born, for Pharoah to let Israel go. Then after praise reports, prayer requests, and a re-iterated shout out to our overseas listeners, Rabbi Jonathan equipped us to see current events such as Valentines Day or when Messiah might return, with the wisdom of serpents yet the gentleness of doves. Amen, and catch you next Shabbat. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/04-Feb-2017-Slides.pdf
