Rebellion and Liberal California – JLD

Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam; Blessed be the Lord our God, King of the Universe! Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah (Christ)! In the parsha, Pastor Duane covered Korach, from Numbers 16:1 – 18:32. Rebellion almost caused the whole of Israel to be destroyed, but when the Man of God prayed, many people were saved. Do not rebel, especially against Men of God. Then after amazing praise reports, and some heartfelt prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan talked about the biblical basis for separation, distinguishing, and discrimination, from Leviticus 20:22-26 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. We even considered California’s State ban on travel to Texas, due to anti- LGBT legislation… it was quite a controversial sermon!

Plans and Ephraim Restoration – JLD

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is awesome, and we long for Him to fill this place. After praise and worship, Rabbi Jonathan covered Shlach, Send, Numbers 13:1 – 15:41. The Children of Israel were given a plan or promise by God, yet they did not act on it, because fear of giants figuratively punched them in the mouth. Has this ever happened to you? Did you turn to the advice of a Joshua or Caleb? Something to consider. Then after praise reports of folks coming back from Israel, and prayer for physical healing, an Orthodox Jew from United 2 Restore, Hanoch Young, spoke about the restoration of both houses of Israel. For such a time as this, restoration is needed between Judah and Ephraim, two houses of Israel. Please support our heart for unity, catch us next Shabbat for oneg, and oh, Happy Fathers Day!

Levites and Passing The Baton – JLD

You’re the one who conquers giants, and calls out kings. You shut the mouths of lions, and tell the dead to breathe. You walk through fire, and take the orphan’s hand. You are the one Messiah, I Am, and we enjoy praising You. In the Torah portion, Pastor Harry spoke on Beha’alotcha, When You Set Up, Numbers 8:1 – 12:15. This parsha spoke on the Levites, Second Passover, and the continued complaining, over things like Moses marrying a Cushite. FYI, God does not like complainers. Then after many praise reports and prayer requests, to include upcoming surgeries, Rabbi Jonathan discussed the importance of Passing The Baton. The V’Ahavta in Deuteronomy 6:5-9 is cornerstone, and connected to the Levites being told to retire at 50 years… sounds like God wants us to actively prepare future generations.

Jealousy and Spiritual Warfare – JLD.

It is God’s breath in our lungs, so the appropriate response is for us to pour out our praise to Him (God), and only to Him. Great are You Lord! In the torah portion, Brother Adam covered Nasso, Take Up, from Numbers 4:21 – 7:89. There was a census, reminder to remove sin from the camp, and instructions on how to address jealousy. On the surface, this section might be about husbands and wives, but what about brides (us) who stray away from our groom (the Word)? Our God is a jealous God, for Israel, which is His bride, so mind that which you are called to do. Then after some amazing praise reports, and a little prayer, Pastor Duane spoke on Spiritual Warfare. The shield of the Spirit is for defense, and offense, against the spiritual forces of evil. Let us stand up to evil forces, and be a light unto the world. And the slides are
