A Kingdom Of Priests

The Lord Yeshua is looking for servants - not church goers, not messianic synagogue goers who go to a worship service, sing some songs, hear a message, donate some money and leave. A servant is someone who has a master and puts his master’s interests before his own. To be Yeshua’s servant, we must know what His interests are and

Korach

The Torah portion for this Shabbat spans Numbers chapters 16-18 and is called Korach, named after the leader of an infamous rebellion against Moses and Aaron – one which ended catastrophically. This is now the third consecutive challenge to Moses’ leadership. The first was from his own siblings, Aaron and Miriam (on the pretext of his marrying an Ethiopian woman).

Many Church And Messianic Synagogue Goers, But Few Servants

The Lord Messiah is looking for servants, not church goers, not messianic synagogue goers who go to a worship service, sing some songs, hear a message, donate some money and leave. The Lord Messiah is looking for servants. A servant is someone who has a master and puts his master’s interests before his own. Human beings are not servants by

Safety Second Part 2

Think for a moment about the more memorable stories from the Bible; don’t they usually involve men and women who rose to the occasion and showed courage in the face of danger? Those are the stories that make it into children’s Bibles, and into a lot of sermons, precisely because they inspire faith. This morning, as we consider seven acts

Safety Second Part 1: Sanctified Risk-Taking, And Its Reward

Introduction: “Safety First” has become almost a mantra in our litigious society. Doesn’t it seem like every TV or radio ad ends with a litany of disclaimers, meant to protect the maker of the product from legal action, should anyone have a bad experience? It seems like every message coming at us urges us to exercise caution. Wear your seatbelt,

Naso – Set Apart: For Disgrace and for Honor

We’re doing something a little different today. I’ve expanded the parasha to be our main message this Shabbat. There is a theme woven throughout this section of the Torah, and I felt it deserved our deeper consideration. First, I’ll give an overview of the parasha, then we’ll address that underlying theme, and draw some applications. But I’ll begin with a

And, this name comes from the two census’ that were taken of Israel in the wilderness.

Shavuot 2019 – What Will You Choose?

Shabbat Shalom, today we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot is a biblical Jewish holiday that doesn’t get as much attention in modern times as other days like Yom Kippur or Passover, but it is very important. Shavuot was a holiday that was required to be attended when the Temple still stood. Shavuot means the “Feast of Weeks,” and is

Acrs 2 – Messiah’s Earliest Community – Our Role Model

When was Messiah’s Community at its best? When it first became the religion of the Roman empire? At the beginning of the Protestant Reformation? Today? My answer: Messiah’s Community was it its best when it first started. This morning, let’s consider Acts 2, which describes what Messiah’s Community was like at its beginning. Let’s learn from the Lord’s first followers

To Whom Anything is Given, Something Will be Required

I think most of us are familiar with Yeshua’s words in Luke chapter twelve: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48). Well, to whom anything is given, something will be required! Our dear brother of blessed memory, Jhan Moskowitz,
