Gracefully Enduring Rejection and Ridicule for Yeshua’s Sake

In his second letter to the believers in Corinth, Rabbi Paul wrote, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. As a deeply flawed human being, I find it reassuring that mercy and comfort are among God’s attributes. But there’s a world of difference between His comforting

Lech L’cha – “Go Forth” – A Legacy Of Courage

Introduction In June of this year many were stunned and saddened to learn of the death of Anthony Bourdain - a world-renowned chef, author and host of the hit cable TV show, Parts Unknown. This wildly popular television ‘reality’ series chronicled Bourdain’s treks to exotic, sometimes extremely remote places few had ever seen. But the truth of the matter is

Isaiah 1

This week Rabbi Glenn covered Isaiah 1, with a focus on Ahaz' dismal rule and the moral decline of Judah (cf. 2 Chronicles 28).  The second session on messianic prophecy covered Deuteronomy 18:15-19.

V’zot Haberachah – “And This Is The Blessing”

The final weekly parasha is entitled V’zot HaB’racha, meaning,“and this is the blessing” and completes the annual cycle of Torah readings. Shortly before his death, Moses pronounces a blessing over the 12 tribes – a reiteration of what Jacob prophesied over his 12 sons five centuries earlier. The two blessings contain differences, and some of them are worth noting. The

Sukkot 2018 – Thinking Back And Thinking Clearly

Arguably, the best part of getting older is having grandchildren. Second to that is having a built-in excuse to let younger guys do the heavy lifting. As I recently mentioned, I finally swallowed my pride, bit the bullet, and got my first pair of bifocals. And now, apparently, I have reached the age where I forget why I came into

Yom Kippur 2018 – Oops!

A wise and godly man once observed: “Pride is the dandelion of the soul. Its root goes deep; only a little left behind sprouts again. Its seeds lodge in the tiniest encouraging cracks. And it flourishes in good soil. The danger of pride is that it feeds on goodness.” Perhaps no parable illustrates this as well as that which Yeshua

Matthew 18:21-35 – Forgive, Or Kiss Yom Kippur Goodbye

To this day I don’t remember what even started it, but back in the 6th grade me and one of my best friends Steve Frumkin got into an argument, and it escalated, and we decided we would settle it after school with a fist fight. All that day, people chose sides. The way everyone was talking it up, you’d think

Luke 3:1-18 – Clear the Way for the Lord!

Tomorrow evening begins Yom T’ruah, the Holiday of Trumpets, more commonly known as Rosh HaShanah, and with it the High Holidays and the beginning of the new year 5779. My hope is that it won’t be a “new year – same old” scenario, but rather that Adonai will continue transforming us from the inside out, causing us to walk in

Shoftim – “Judges”

A.W. Tozer believed that the truest measure of a man is how he thinks about God. Perhaps the truest measure of a nation is how its judicial system functions. When innocent people go to prison because ambitious prosecutors suppress evidence, or officials commit perjury, or judges allow their political biases to influence cases, the judicial process is perverted. The same

Avodah Part 2 – The Opportunities

Serving the needs of Messiah’s Holy Community and those outside the Faith Good morning, and welcome to the sermon everybody dreads: what it means to serve. You’ll recall that last Shabbat I spoke about the amazing system of water cycles that Adonai has designed into Creation. Every lake and ocean in the world is both a repository and a tributary

Avodah – Part 1 The Foundation (Gratitude)

This morning I’ll be sharing the first of a two-part message on what it means to serve; serving within Messiah’s Community, and serving those outside the Faith. Serving, not grudgingly, but gratefully. And to illustrate how crucial it is to your soul that you serve others, let’s talk about water. I grew up in southern California, where typically, you have

1 Corinthians 1:17-29: Who’s Running This Show?

Preview: Deficient theology leads otherwise good, well-intentioned people to think they need to ‘help’ God by repackaging the Gospel in a way that attracts people. Entertaining, stylized, shallow services instead of substance Trying to ‘fit-in’ with culture (‘hipster’ dress/talk) Latching onto the latest fashionable media-driven issue It’s not only inauthentic, but it trivializes Yeshua’s death! Introduction: This morning, let’s think
