Exploring The Land and Hebrew Eyes – JLD

Whilst Rabbi Jonathan was in Chicago serving veterans as a Chaplain, and meeting people at Evanston Subaru (watch his vlog https://youtu.be/xLnxAquRBXE), Amanda led an amazing Messianic Jewish rendition of Tremble. We believe in one God (Adonai Echad), and as we say His Name, may any darkness in our lives tremble! Our Shabbat School Coordinator, Paula, presented Shlach, Send To You, Numbers 13:1 – 15:41. Moses sent spies into the land flowing with milk and honey, yet most were fearful of taking what God had promised. How quickly we forget what God has done, and the leaders He appointed. We prayed for protection and healing, praised God for a proposal, then listened as Brother Adam delivered a timely sermon on having a Hebrew, Biblical, and non-Western perspective. Make sure to listen intently, and share this amazing teaching with your friends. The slides are https://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/09-Jun-2018-Slides.pdf

Way Cool Angels and Light of Messiah Echad – JLD

May His light ever burn within us, as a consuming fire that never gets put out. When we allow God to burn deep inside, overtake our hearts, and fuel our passions once again, we connect with a power that can transform lives. In the Torah, Michael summarizedBeha’alotcha, When You Set Up, Numbers 8:1 – 12:15. As we kindle the candles in the temple, or serve as evangelical lights, the orientation should be outward facing, towards the community. And if you want to be responsible for leading or lighting the menorah, you must first prove you can follow. Finally, we should remember that complaining is more than unbecoming; grumbling against one’s leaders, or God, puts you squarely on the path to destruction. Do not complain; pray for people, and lift them up. Finally, mazel tov to Davina, for being recognized as a daughter of the covenant.

Avoid Gossip and Losing Salvation – JLD

In the great unknown, where feet may fail, I will call upon Your Name. Your Grace abounds in the deepest of waters, and Your Hands are my guide. Davina did an amazing job in worship, after which Brandon summarized one of the longest portions of Torah. Nasso, Take Up, from Numbers 4:21 – 7:89, was about gossip, and what results from it. If you have an accusation, test it, then follow Mathew 18:15 if there is a problem, or drop it if there is not. Do not talk about it with others; that is gossip. Praise reports included mountains being removed and people finding our fellowship, which we should not take for granted. We prayed for healing and peace, then Rabbi Jonathan spoke on our fifth statement of faith; being born again through Yeshua (Salvation), and manifesting that new life by following His Commandments (Sanctification). Listen to find out which commands, and why we should follow them. And the slides are https://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/26-May-2018-Slides.pdf

Closeness To God and Acts 2 Revival – JLD

Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain, or control. I want more of you God. There is no place I would rather be, than here in Your love. In the Torah, Watchman Alexander opened Bamidbar, In The Wilderness, Numbers 1:1 – 4:20. Like the separation we see in royal weddings, between the privileged and commoners, God only allows certain people to get close to Him. And with increased closeness to God and His Power, comes an increased level accountably. Next, we praised God for vehicles and safety, after which we prayed for discernment. Finally, Rabbi Jonathan delivered his Shavuot (Pentecost) Sermon. Fifty days after the exodus, Israel received the Ten Commandments, and when Jewish believers observed Shavuot in the first century, they received the Holy Spirit. We get blessed when we obey. Now with that Gift, make sure you manifest the Fruits. And the slides are https://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/19-May-2018-Slides.pdf

Old Testament Relevance and Mother’s Day – JLD

It was so refreshing to declare that my help comes from You. God is right here pulling me through, carrying me on His shoulders. Brandon brought forth Behar and Bechukotai, On The Mountain and In My Statues, from Leviticus 25:1 – 27:34. A connection was made to the kindness and severity of God, from Romans 11:22, which proves that the blessings and curses of Leviticus 26:3-14 never ended. We need to continue studying the Word, listening to the precepts, and following them (i.e. tithing) lest God walk contrary to us. Praise report were free wine dinners, and we prayed for healing, after with Rabbi Jonathan delivered a passionate Mother’s Day sermon. Despite feminism asserting women can rule men, let us embrace the viewpoint of our creator, while honoring mothers, motherhood, maternal influence, and mother’s influences in society, biblically.

Appointed Times and Status Check – JLD

On Cinco De Mayo, our Shabbat Service was especially fun and celebratory, but not because the Mexican Army defeated France in 1862. Watchman Alexander summarized Emor, Say, Leviticus 21:1 – 24:23, which spoke about what it means to be holy. Next, we covered the Appointed Times or Feasts of the Lord, and we encouraged all generations to observe them. Praise reports included favor at work, and we prayed for our online audience, before Rabbi Jonathan asked if we are fallen, walking, running, or soaring. The bible says even young men will grow weary and fall, so it is important to be honest about how we are doing. If you are fallen, don’t turn to others to save you; that’s God’s job. If you are walking, be content. If you are running, run your heart out and if you are soaring, don’t look down on people. Help people.

Priesthood and The Vine – JLD

As Rabbi Jonathan cycled with veterans in the Northeast, and a few technical difficulties arose during services, this recording came out a bit faint, but the insights will speak loudly into your life. Pastor Harry covered Emor, Say, Leviticus 21:1 – 24:23. Despite our desire as ministers to be relatable and relevant, we must remain Holy, because God is Holy. Also, and especially in this modern world, do we spend the same energy on secular holidays, as we do God’s Holy Days? Hmm. After praise reports of vehicles, and prayers for surgeries, we were blessed to hear from our guest, Reverend Kurt Hein. The exegesis was from John 15:1-8, where we read about the Vine and the branches. Right before being betrayed, Yeshua invited us to abide with Him, and be fruitful. God wants to give life; do not run from Him. Abide, and pray.

Holiness and Greater Works – JLD

Brother Chris did an excellent job with his double torah portion, After The Death and Holy Ones,  Leviticus 16:1-20:27. There are many parallels in this section with the New Testament. One goat was sacrificed while another carried away our sins into the wilderness; Yeshua (Jesus) justifies us with His blood, and then takes away our sins. Further, we are called to be holy, and must be careful to avoid such things as lying or perverting justice, which defile our bodies. Praise reports included new jobs and fellowship, after which we prayed for medical healings. In the sermon, Rabbi Jonathan connected his 400 mile bicycle journey to the meaning of being a “Christian” or “Messianic Jew”. Do we do greater works that Jesus? Have you openly shared (confessed )your sins? Will you discard the past, and embrace life’s mistakes, as you go into the future. Lots to learn; Shabbat Shalom.

Torah and Our Modern World – JLD

It was refreshing to sing about our Savior who is seated above, enthroned in the Father’s love. It was also good being reminded that we will overcome, by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of our testimony. Brother Brandon did an amazing job with his inaugural torah portion at Messiah Echad, Tazria and Metzora, from Leviticus 12:1 – 15:33. When, not if, a woman conceives, there is a purification process mother and child undergo to bring about holiness. And some illnesses, such as leprosy, are the physical counterparts to the spiritual problem of sin. Praise reports included tuition being covered, and we prayed for healing, after which Rabbi asked if our world (modern society) teaches us to follow the commandments of God. When it comes to design and function, not so much. Ownership and responsibility is not better. How about issues and feedback?

Kosher Animals and Holy Spirit – JLD

Because He lives, I am alive. I can face tomorrow, and every fear is gone. Amen. Amen. Let us shout Amen! In the torah portion, Brother Chris covered Parsha Shemini, Eighth Day, Leviticus 9:1 – 11:47. We discussed many of the offerings, then continued on with celebrations, after which Nadab and Abihu made profane fire to Adonai (The Lord). Even with good intentions, if you do things your way, not Yah’s (God’s), things might not end well. Praise reports included surprise $1200 checks, and medical miracles, after which we prayed for emotional healing. Lastly, Rabbi Jonathan talked about the holy spirit ceasing to live inside man (Genesis), then being revived (Acts), yet people do not follow the holy spirit’s guidance (God’s Laws). Meditate on the Word. Embrace accountable. Keep your mind sober. And the slides are https://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/07-Apr-2018-Slides.pdf
