Making Vows and Commitments – JLD

Your love has captured me, and Your grace has set me free. Your life is the air I breathe, and I want to be glorified in Thee Messiah. After some amazing praise and worship, Pastor Harry summarized Mattot and Massei, Tribes and Journeys, Numbers 30:2 – 36:13. Despite how loose some people are with their promises, God expects that whenever we give our word, we keep it. After all, God will call all of our words into judgement, as per Mathew 12:36. Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan continued on the topic of vows, while also connecting to a message from November of 2016. Did the people who helped plant Messiah Echad, make a Ruth like vow, or have Jonathan like love, extending full trust and loyalty? We pray they did, and enjoy the gold coins we will now give out annually. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/22-Jul-2017-Slide.pdf

Exceptions and Yeshua Israel - JLD

God is jealous for me, and He loves me like a hurricane. I feel like a tree, bending beneath the weight of God’s mercy. Do you know that He loves you too? Amen. Rabbi Jonathan spoke on Parsha Pinchas, Numbers 25:10 – 30:1, which proceeds a believer (Pinchas) being so zealous for God, he speared two brazen, sinning believers. Will you similarly stand boldly for God? And what did you think about the Daughters of Zelophedad asking an unchanging God, for an exception? Well, God granted it, and we encourage you to also grant exceptions, lest God not do so for you. Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Kobi Ferguson from Yeshua Israel spoke on how even the Orthodox Jewish Believers in Israel, are being reached through teaching, music, and benevolence. May Adonai continue to bless our ministries. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/15-Jul-2017-Slides.pdf

Confronting Those Who Sin – JLD

My God how great You are; the heavens are telling the earth how great You are, and we respond daily to Your love. In the Torah portion, Watchman Alexander covered Balak, from Numbers 22:1 – 25:9. As Israel approached Moab, King Balak summoned a diviner and polytheist, Balam, to curse Israel. Yet God did not allow Balam to utter a curse, rather Balam spoke the MaTovu. Be mindful though, of jerks like Balam, who still want to curse you, or cause you to sin. Then after praise reports of medical healings, and a few prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan picked up where Alex left off; how to confront sin. First, you are not the Sin Police, so focus on confronting sins against yourself. Second, take the log out of your eye, before criticizing the speck in your brother’s. Finally, as a believer, don’t be a hypocrite. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/08-Jul-2017-Slides.pdf.

Hosanna In The Highest and Gideons – JLD

Imagine us in the heavenly throne room, before our Father, worshipping. What would it mean if they stood, and rose their hands back to us? Wow! Wonderful praise and worship, as always. In the parsha, Rabbi Jonathan summarized Chukat, Statute, Numbers 19:1 – 22:1. The Lord spoke to Israel about the red heifer sacrifice, not touching dead people, not complaining, and not rebelling against God. So in applying the gleanings to our modern world, is our spiritual cleanliness still affected by our physical actions, can a priest intercede on your behalf for your sins, and do we maintain the ability to conquer giants? Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Royce Linsey from the Gideons blessed us with amazing testimonies, detailing how one Bible can have multiplicative, transformative implications. Amen.

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! Our slides are online, http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/24-Jun-2017-Slides.pdf, and see you next week, as we invite The Gideon’s to guest preach https://www2.gideons.org/blog

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

Protecting Our Leaders and Salvation – JLD

We live in a world that preaches tolerance to the point we often become timid about our faith, but let us feel confident enough to shout from the rooftops that we are God’s beloved children! In the torah portion, Pastor Duane spoke on Bamidbar, In The Wilderness, from Numbers 1:1 – 4:20. Moses and the Levites were tasked with the responsibility of leading hundreds of thousands of people, but the people were tasked with something as well… surrounding and protecting their spiritual leaders. How might you be able to do that better? Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan spoke on Holy Spirit vs. Bible Based Regeneration, and how our works might affect salvation, justification, and righteousness. Enjoy this study on our fifth statement of faith, and Shavuot Semeach (Happy Pentecost)! And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/27-May-2017-Slides.pdf

Television and Graduation – JLD.

Although enemies rush on the city of Israel, and run on the wall, Adonai (God) continues to utter His voice of protection. We pray always, for the peace of Jerusalem, and restoration between Christians and Jews. The torah portion, Behar and Bechukotai, On My Mountain and in My Statues, Leviticus 25:1 – 27:34, was covered by our Shabbat School Teacher, Christina Velez. This week’s focus was on Shabbat rests, equality, and idols… do you spend more time with anything, like television, than you do in worship? Then after praise reports and prayer, Rabbi Jonathan let the secret out; he just finished two years of seminary at Colorado Christian University! Mazel Tov (Congratulations) on obtaining classical training, and sharing your thesis with us, on “Messianic Jewish Apologetics to a Christian Audience”.
