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?

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

Plagues and Gangster God – JLD

Though the battle rages on, we will stand in the fight. Though the armies rise against us on all sides; we will not be shaken, because our God is for us. Amen. In the torah portion, our Rebbetzin, Melinda, taught Va’eira, And I appeared, Exodus 6:2 – 9:35, to the children. Our Shabbat School program has not yet covered Moses, but they excitedly learned about how God spoke to him, and used Moses to rescue the Children of Israel. Too bad for Egypt, the rescue process included ten plagues, because Pharaoh’s heart was hardened. Then after praise reports and prayer requests, Rabbi Jonathan gave insight into our first statement of faith, belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God is like the air, much larger than the Mediator, and is so gangster that He has allows no man to see His face. A very serious God.

Perils and Messianic Judaism – JLD

The Lord is worthy, to receive our praise, and Holy, as the Son of God. It was so awesome to sing about Him, and invite His presence into our service. Brother Mitch followed up with a joke, then Parsha Shemot, Names, from Exodus 1:1 – 6:1. The focus was Exodus 3:13-17, and we explored why bad things happen to good people. Part of the answer is because perils need to exist, for a great deliverance to occur… ugh, bring on the perils then. During praise reports, the Rabbi and Rebbetzin were blessed with a trip back to DC (thank you guys!), and prayer request time was powerful as always. Lastly, Rabbi Jonathan preached his first drash or sermon of the year, on the History of Messianic Judaism. We lined our beliefs against seven theological topics, and would love to hear your thoughts on them. And the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/21-Jan-2017-Slides.pdf

Breaking Ankles and Finances – JLD

We invite you to get lost in the words “More Love”, “More Power”, “More Of You In My Life”. Today, cast all of your cares on Him. Yes. Rabbi Jonathan did, and he covered Vayechi, He Lived, Genesis 47:28 – 50:26. This parsha was real, and we learned that our Rabbi was confrontational in times past, to include breaking ankles but big picture, is it our place to punish people or play God? If you are a Jacob, help those people in your care, get along. As a Joseph, forgive. And as the Brothers, repent. Finally, after praise reports, a public confession, then prayer requests, Pastor Gunnar from Gateway Church in Dallas (http://gatewaypeople.com/profiles/gunnar-johnson) preached on financial stewardship. Its all about firsts, generosity, minimal debt, saving, margin (profit), budgets, and eternal perspective.
