Following Shabbat and The Spirit – JLD

April is packed with events, so be sure to visit https://messiahechad.org/services/, to get details on our Passover Seder, Spring Mikveh (Baptism), and more. You might also enjoy watching The Passover Movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1tRF4HfsHc. In this past week’s service, it was so great to declare that through the valley of the shadow, and in the midst of deep sorrows, we are not alone! Next, Rebbetzin Melinda covered Vayakhel (And he assembled), and Pekudei (Accountings Of), from Exodus 35:1 – 40:38. Its all about the relationship with God, so make sure to take a Shabbat rest and keep your living temple (body) clean. Finally, Rabbi Jonathan spoke on our third statement of faith; belief in the Holy Spirit Gift from God. And the Spirit, can enable us believers to get along.

Clean Hands and Temples – JLD

We sang kadosh, kadosh, kadosh… Adonai Elohim tz’va’ot, because holy, holy, holy, is our Lord God of hosts indeed. During the parsha, Rabbi Jonathan covered Ki Tisa, When You Take, Exodus 30:11 – 34:35. In the census tax, God requires the same amount from all people, which is different than the tithe, where give is based on income. There was also the golden cow incident or debacle, the covenant being renewed, and the reminder to always wash your hands. Praise reports included getting a Lexus, and we prayer was also awesome! Finally, special thanks to Rabbi Schneider from Discovering the Jewish Jesus, for sending out Dustin Roberts to speak on the tabernacle. God has a divine system for the way He wants us to enter into relationship with Him, and it is based on the design of the tabernacle.

Sparkly, Esther, and Purim – JLD

This one thing I seek; to dwell within Your House. This only do I seek; to gaze upon your beauty. Yes. May we all continue to seek God! Brother Mitch covered Torah Portion Tetzaveh, You Shall Command, from Exodus 27:20 – 30:10. This section referenced the traditions behind Urim and Tumim. the breastplate worn by the High Priest, which contained the sparkly things that could spell out prophecies. Further, we are similar, living stones, as per 1 Peter 2:5, so get out there and sparkle! Praise reports included how Messiah Echad positively impacted a family that commutes in over an hour each week, then prayer requests asked for healings and jobs. Lastly, with it being Purim, our sermon was a fun read through the Book of Esther, aww, daughter of Mordecai, yay, who defeated Haman, boo, thereby liberating the Jews.

Temple and KJV Translation – JLD

Bless The Lord… You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger. Your name is great, and Your heart is kind… we will keep singing about the 10,000 reason we worship Your Holy Name. Our Watchman, Alex, covered Terumah, Heave Offering, from Exodus 25:1 – 27:19. Everything in the Old Testament is a foreshadow or symbolism of things to come, to include the temples and tabernacles. Do you know how many there are in scripture? After praise reports and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan recapped our controversial message from last week about Negative Jesus, before questioning the King James Version. Yes we challenged the respected KJV, and maybe you grew up on it too, but check out 1 John 5:7-8 in different translations… words were added. See you for Purim Shabbat on 11 March 2017, and the slides for this past week are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/04-Mar-2017-Slides.pdf
