Time To Confess Your Sins – JLD

More love. More power. More of You in my life. Let us worship you, with all of our heart, mind, and strength, because You are our Lord. So with it being the week of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, there was no torah portion, but Brother Adam reminded us that Yeshua (Jesus) is God, and Brother Phillip poetically said we and Jesus go together, like Popeye and Spinach. Praise reports included thankfulness for Melinda being our Rebbetzin (and the birthday girl), while prayer requests were around health and jobs. Then in the main message, Rabbi Jonathan said Yeshua (Jesus) is our Passover Lamb (John 1:29), as well as the First Fruits (1 Corinthians 15:23), but we still have sins in need of confession and forgiveness. Be mindful of intent, frequency, and outcome, then help us decrease sin at Messiah Echad. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/15-Apr-2017-Slides.pdf

Fourth Annual Passover Seder – JLD

We began our Seder with a prayer for unity, then our congregation’s own sounding of the shofar, which we believe can be heard physically and spiritually. Should you wish to follow along with the order of service, visit http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/ME-Haggadah.pdf. Rabbi Jonathan wrote our Messianic Haggadah to be brief, interactive, and shareable, so feel free to connect with it. The seder dinner is about Exodus 12:3-11, where we are commanded to mark our doorposts, roast lamb in fire, and remove leaven or puffiness from our lives. What you might not know is how these are all things that Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) observed, so as followers of Him, so should we. Plus eating lamb meat, dipping the parsley, and singing Dayeynu is so much fun. Catch you for Shabbat Service, this upcoming Saturday at 03pm.

Preparation and Removing Leaven – JLD

What a Beautiful name it. What a wonderful name it is. What a powerful name it is. The name Yeshua (Jesus). Righteous. King. And we know of His awesome power, from all the signs and miracles He performs. Pastor Duane covered Tzav, Command, from Leviticus 6:1 – 8:36. This torah portion is about sacrifices and squiggly lines, but also Priests who had a passion to perform things unto the Lord, and Priests who had to get dressed up, in order to remove just the ashes. Amen. Let us also be the prepared, holy vessels, wherein He dwells. Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan covered the second of a three part Passover Series; removing leaven and puffiness. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is to be observed throughout our generations, and yes, Spring Cleaning is also in the New Covenant.

Calling, Easter, and Passover – JLD

Holy Spirit; You are welcome here. Come flood this place, and fill the atmosphere. Your glory is what our hearts long for, to become overcome by your presence. Amen, and may that increase from Him, truly come. Brother Mitch covered parsha Vayikra, He Called, Leviticus 1:1 – 5:26, which is about laws, but it is also about a God who is ever calling each believer. It does not matter your sins; Messiah cleanses them, and allows you to be called out. After praise reports, to include biopsies coming back negative, then prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan questioned the bible’s stance on Easter. Sadly, coloring eggs or thinking rabbits lay eggs, might be contra-biblical… celebrating the Exodus Story, Passover Meal, or Resurrection of Messiah, is pleasing to God. So include that in your active faith, and celebrate with us. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/01-Apr-2017-Slides.pdf

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

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? Email us your thoughts office@messiahechad.org, and enjoy the slides http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/18-Feb-2017-Slides.pdf
