Case Law & the New Covenant

Case Law & the New Covenant

09/15/23 – A Closer Look at the “Laws” in Deuteronomy.  Did Y’shua contradict or “add to” the laws or commandments in the book of Deuteronomy when He said “Moses allowed divorce because of the hardness of your hearts BUT I SAY…” and other such things?  Is everything in the book of Deuteronomy actually a ‘command by YHWH’?  Or is there possibly something else going on in chapters 20-25?  Are there really 613 commandments OR are MANY OF THEM possibly ‘Case Law’… BASED UPON YHWH’s actual Commandments/Laws?  Case Law decided in the authority of YHWH by Moses in his Yah given role as “Chief Justice” of the Supreme Court in the wilderness?  And then Y’shua is Chief Justice of a higher court… THE HIGHEST court?  Y’shua’s rulings would then be a “higher court ruling” while HE DID STILL UPHOLD Moses’ case law in the wilderness but brought clarification to its application.  Moses Himself in Deuteronomy told us YHWH would raise up a prophet LIKE unto Moses himself and that we should listen to all He says because He would only speak the Words of YHWH in the Name of YHWH?  THEN ALSO we see in the New Testament writings that as the Body of Messiah we are also given authority under Y’shua to judge according to the Commandments of YHWH.  Like all judges we are to take all prior Case Law into account when judging putting the most weight on what the highest judging authority (Y’shua) has said, especially when judging ourselves.  Please listen all the way to the end of this message where we tie this all into the New or Renewed Covenant which is which is also founded upon the 10 Commandments or Words of the covenant at Horeb or Mt. Sinai AND IS FIRST OUTLINED IN DEUTERONOMY! 

3 Brides, 3 Branches, 2 Sticks, 2 Trees

3 Brides, 3 Branches, 2 Sticks, 2 Trees

02/06/23 – 1 Resurrected Bride & 1 Kingdom of Israel.  Thoughts on scripture, salvation, and who we are in Y’shua Messiah.  Why would anyone want to convert to be part of the dead bride.  Torah can not save without what Y’shua did on the cross or tree!  Torah only instructs and then condemns.  It is VERY VALUABLE as a teacher of how to live in our Abba’s Kingdom or House but even if you think you can keep Torah perfectly, it will not save you without Y’shua’s death on the cross and resurrection, period.  Those that deny Y’shua is YHWH come in the Flesh are deceived by the spirit of Anti-Messiah.  His invitation to eternal life is open to ‘whosoever’.

The Embalmed Corpse of Israel

The Embalmed Corpse of Israel

01/07/23 – Joseph Nations Delivered Israel’s Body Back to the Land… A surprising look at the last two Torah Portions, Vayigash & Vayechi.  Are the Ezekiel prophesied dry bones of Israel with sinew and flesh on them actually the embalmed body of Israel which the Joseph nations delivered back to the land of Israel in 1949?  Did the ancient nation of Israel die with Y’shua and become embalmed 2000 years ago?  Israel the man… 7 Years of Plenty followed by 7 Years of Famine followed by the death and 40 day embalming of Joseph’s father Israel, followed by 70 days of mourning in all Egypt and then 7 more days of mourning by Joseph after he delivers Israels embalmed body back to Canaan.  Has the nation of Israel been following after the pattern of Israel the man for the last 2000 years since the ancient nation of Israel died with Y’shua and went through a 40 year embalming process?  Are we possibly entering the last 7 years of Joseph’s mourning for his father after delivering him back to the land?  We will follow the scriptural patterns in today’s program and see where they lead us.

Hanukkah, Shadrach, Meshach & Abed-Nego

Hanukkah, Shadrach, Meshach & Abed-Nego

12/23/22 – The Enemy’s Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a Hebrew word meaning dedication.  Today we will first discuss “coming out” or UN-Assimilating and what we’ve all gone through to get where we are today and how we need to help each other stay strong and not RE-Assimilate.  We also look at “Merry Christmas” and some response ideas that may better glorify our Savior and King than “Happy Hanukkah”.  Most people in the grocery checkout line are clueless as to what Hanukkah is other than a Jewish holiday and the Jewish religion rejects the only begotten Son, YHWH’s Word having come in the Flesh.  Do we really want to appear to reject the birth of our Savior when there isn’t even time to explain to this person what Hanukkah is all about or that December 25 isn’t Jesus birthday and that Jesus isn’t our Savior’s Name anyway?  Can we really explain all that in 5 minutes or will we simply leave them believing we too (along with most of the world) have rejected our Savior?  Then after a beautiful song by Marty Goetz will read a few scriptures on Hanukkah or dedication including a fresh look at Shadrach, Meshach & Abed-Nego.

HEBREW RUNNERS…  RUNNING TO SERVE HIM

HEBREW RUNNERS… RUNNING TO SERVE HIM

11/19/22 – In this week’s message we are going to talk about “running” to do the will of our Creator, our Abba.  The last few weeks we’ve been talking about LISTENING to the still small voice of His Ruach or Spirit.  This week we are going to explore RUNNING.  Do we drop everything and RUN like Abraham did to meet with YHWH or to do His will once we hear from Him, as soon as we hear from Him?  We will look at several examples in scripture of ‘running’ toward YHWH or running to do His will as opposed to procrastinating when we hear His voice.  How might an attitude of running or procrastinating effect our physical and eternal salvations.  Is it possible that the difference between the Revelation Church of Philadelphia as opposed to the church of Smyrna may have something to do with how quickly they respond to the leading of His Ruach, how quickly we respond to the calling of Y’shua upon our lives?  Hopefully this message will inspire us all to LISTEN even more intently and then to RUN when He calls us.

Jacob a Fire, Joseph a Flame & Esau is Stubble

Jacob a Fire, Joseph a Flame & Esau is Stubble

10/08/22 – Obadiah’s Prophecy.  A followup to last week’s discussion regarding the Bear of Esau Growing Restless (also on our blog page).  This week our discussion centers around Obadiah 1:18 including how the rest of the book of Obadiah also may refer to modern day Russia in the very near future as well as what Obadiah’s prophecy of judgement by fire may mean for the rest of the nations as well.

Take a Stand!

Take a Stand!

06/04/22 – Draw Your Line in the Sand!  As the Aaron Tippin song goes… “You’ve got to Stand for Something, or You’ll Fall for Anything”. And boy is our world falling for anything right now, or WHAT?! It is because we have forgotten what we stand for. As parents do our children understand what we stand for and even more importantly why we stand for it? Especially as “called out remnant” parents are we consistent and do we stand by what we believe to be true no matter what and why do we believe what we believe? Does what we believe change with every new “fragment” found in a cave or every new extra-biblical “lost” book that is unearthed?? However, most importantly of all before we can consistently stand by what believe ‘no matter what’, do we know why we believe what we believe, and do we teach our children consistently why we believe what we believe no matter what? Or are we sending mixed and compromising messages?
