There are two types of Chesed (loyal love) in the Bible: Chesed in relationship to God and Chesed in relationship to other people. We often desire kindness and mercy for ourselves, but justice for other people. There is nothing God wants more than to pour out His Chesed on those who know they don’t deserve it. When you know you don’t deserve it, an…

The Book of Ruth is not a fairy tale. The characters are not one-dimensional moral characters in a fairy tale. It's not a romantic comedy. Instead, it's a real, painful, sorrowful story that follows the tragedies of the book of Judges and leads to the story of King David, and ultimately to Yeshua our Messiah, a perfect savior who comes through a br…

Christians often believe the "Church" began in Acts 2, but it started at Mt Sinai when Israel gathered to receive the Torah. Acts 2 is the fulfillment of God's promises to the Jewish people twice, on Shavuot, 1500 years apart, with the giving of the Torah and the Holy Spirit. To learn more, watch "Nothing New Happened in Acts Chapter Two!" Link: ht…

"Promise" refers to something that will happen in the future. It is not possible to promise something that has already taken place in the past. Unfortunately, we have had experiences with broken promises. However, we know that God never breaks His promises. He made promises to our ancestors, and although they did not always see the fulfillment of t…

Marty McFly once said to Doc Brown about the responsibility of the space-time continuum, "That's heavy!" Interestingly, the Hebrew word for honor means heavy or weighty. The way we honor our parents, which is the fifth commandment of the ten, has a direct impact on how we honor God and other people around us. It's a heavy responsibility that we hav…

Everyone has choices in life. The Psalmist highlights the fact that the people we associate with can greatly impact our attitudes and behaviors, and that it is important to choose our companions wisely. This age-old lesson still holds true today, as the company we keep has the potential to either uplift us or bring us down. Choices matter and the w…

God is always with us, even when we can't see or feel His presence. And sometimes, the difficult and painful experiences we go through can lead us to greater joy and growth in the end. It's like God is throwing a party for us, inviting us to embrace all of life's ups and downs and celebrate the journey. This Purim, amidst the chaos of the world, we…

Take a journey through Biblical & Historical context to understand the Gospel through a bronze snake on a pole in the Torah. Jesus uses this symbol to explain the concept of being born again to a Pharisee. The story's central message, in John 3, is that one can avoid condemnation and death by believing, repenting, and living. The path to life requi…

The Pharisees accused Yeshua of breaking the Sabbath in the First Century. They were developing their own system of interpretation of the Written Torah, which became known as the Oral Torah. The accusations had more to do with their own authority and man-made laws than the commandments of God. Let us show you what Jesus said about Shabbat and how H…

In the community (ekklesia) of the Living God, all leaders must follow the service model laid out in the Torah and by Paul in 1 Timothy 3. It is important to avoid the benefaction model of Ancient Rome, which was based on personal gain and instead use our position as a platform to serve others. The ultimate goal is to become humble servants, rather…

It is not necessary to be extraordinary or "extra-ordinary" to influence others. In fact, you can achieve this through ordinariness. Living a life of "faithfulness and love and holiness, with sound judgment," and striving to lead a peaceful and quiet life while embodying godliness and respectfulness are the keys to influencing others. It is importa…

In 1 Timothy 2, Paul advised Timothy to live with godliness and respect towards everyone. He emphasized the superiority of Yeshua over Artemis in Ephesus, a city dominated by the Temple of Artemis, without ever mentioning her name. Paul warned Timothy that having bad character, even when doing things right, leads to doing everything wrong and havin…

Paul had a realization long before the Oral Torah was codified. He understood that man-made rules are not Torah. While customs, traditions, guidelines, and rules are not inherently bad, they become problematic when people add their own man-made rules to God's commandments and treat them as equal to the Written Torah. Paul found that Messiah is the …

In a world where social media has made it challenging to distinguish between real and self-proclaimed experts, it's important to choose battles wisely. Paul's advice to Timothy on fighting the good fight against those misusing the Torah to harm people in Ephesus is a reminder to stand up for what's right without getting caught up in unnecessary con…

Everyone knows the Jewish people are chosen by God, but most, including most Jewish people themselves, do not know the purpose of this chosenness. The truth is that we are chosen to make the God of Israel known to the nations. Through Yeshua, Gentiles are also chosen for the same purpose - to make God known. If you want to make a difference watch t…

The more you learn to live in freedom, the easier it becomes to discover your God-given identity. It's not just about what we feel and think about ourselves, but our identity as defined by the One who created us and formed us in our mother's womb. God knows us better because He made us with certain things in mind for us to be and do. Watch "Discove…

Humans were made to not be alone, we were created for relationships and connection God and with other people. Having other people in their lives to share experiences, joys, and struggles is crucial for mental, emotional and spiritul well-being. Being a part of a local community where people are seeking to grow in love of God and others is more impo…

God's promises always come with a guaranteed outcome, unlike human promises. We were designed to be different, and this uniqueness is meant to give hope to those searching for their identity. This started with the Jewish people and was extended to the Gentiles through Yeshua. We want to help people know God and find their idenity in Him. Link: #the…

Bread symbolizes provision in Judaism. The Apostle Paul emphasized showing gratitude to Jews in Jerusalem for bringing the Gospel to the Gentiles.

It's really important to understand the difference between sympathy and empathy when we interact with others. While sympathy is more about feeling sorry for someone, empathy is about understanding what they're going through and connecting with them on a deeper level. As followers of God, we should strive to show empathy to others just as He shows m…

God's provision is always better than anything we can provide for ourselves. Even in uncomfortable seasons, we should trust in Him. God will work in all things to get and keep our attention. His desire is to free us from the limitations of our man-made shelters and give us something better: His provisions for us. Link: https://restoration.subspla.s…

It's funny how we tend to compare ourselves to the best people in the Bible, even though they don't always have the most admirable traits. We often ignore the negative qualities of these characters and fail to acknowledge that we possess them as well. This self-righteous attitude leads us to make unfair judgments about ourselves, others, and even G…

God's plan from the beginning was to separate the Jewish people from the nations, so that they could be a blessing to those nations. As a result, the Jewish people have the privilege of welcoming everyone to the family of God, regardless of their background. The God of Jonah and Peter is calling you back to Himself today. His desire is to save all …

So many people seem to be exhausted and drained personally and with all that is happening in the world around us. If there's anyone who deserves to feel that way, it's God. He made promises to people who often forget to remember them. Yet, God continues to keep his word to a forgetful people. In today's message we talk about not losing hope, especi…

You’ve heard it said, “Mercy is for the weak”, but we say, “It takes great strength to repsond to hard things with mercy!” It's natural for us to feel anger and seek revenge when we are wronged. However, if we consider the mercy that God has shown us, which was undeserved, why would we want anyone to do something to earn mercy? If you're interested…

It's interesting how having knowledge and insight doesn't always translate into applying it to our own lives. The story of Jonah is a great example of this, where he was unable to apply wisdom to himself while in the belly of the fish. It's a reminder for all of us to be self-aware and apply what we know to better our own lives. Watch "Under To Sea…

If you or someone you love is going through a tough time that feels like the end of the world, we highly recommend watching "The Sign," part 5 of Jonah. The Bible is full of stories that showcase death and resurrection, no where more clear than Jonah. The very thing that seemed like it would kill Jonah (being swallowed by a fish) became the vehicle…

Have you ever noticed that there are three things in life we all try to control, but simply can't? These are time, death, and the randomness of life. As Sukkot draws to a close, we are reminded of the book of Ecclesiastes and the wisdom it offers. Instead of trying to control the uncontrollable, we should focus on experiencing joy in our lives. Spe…

It's crazy how the book of Jonah flips the script on what we typically think of as a savior. Instead of being this heroic figure like Moses, Jonah is the opposite: the savior we don't need. It's important for us to remember that we can't always handle everything on our own and that we need help. Even though we may want to rely solely on ourselves, …

Have you ever wondered why we sometimes find ourselves in difficult situations? The Bible teaches that not every hardship we face is a result of our own mistakes, but it does warn us that every sin we commit will eventually lead to trouble. This is exactly what happened to Jonah when he found himself caught in a violent storm. The storm was not the…

Have you ever felt superior to others and looked down on them? If so, you're not alone. The upside-down story of Jonah teaches us the importance of showing mercy, even to those we may believe don't deserve it. When we recognize that we have received undeserved mercy, we can learn to freely extend it to others. Tune in to part 2 of our Jonah series …

Jonah is the worst prophet in the Bible. He could hear God clearly but chose to run the other way from God's plan for his life. Jonah is a mirror you can hold up to see your own sin. Jonah is not just the worst...he is just like you! Jump in the water as we start a new series on the book of Jonah for Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. Link: https…

Yeshua came to turn us from our sins and to take his throne as both the King of Israel and the King of the Nations.

Let us show you how. Link: https://res…

You may not know what a “goad” is but understanding might change your life. It’s the age old story: God sets direction and we kick against that direction.

The scriptures are full of examples of hospitality. Genesis 18 shows us a time when Abraham’s hospitality, created an opportunity to experience deeper relationship, blessing, and revelation from God.
