Abraham’s Faith

Posted on Nov 2, 2014

110114sd by Rabbi Dennis Richards.  How many of you have heard the expression time flies? Do you realize that two weeks ago we started Genesis chapter 1.  Two thousand (2000) years later, we are now on Genesis Chapter 11. If we read those 2000 years in ten minutes we missed a lot. They are there for a reason and we can’t just read through it without going back and looking at what is God trying to say to us. Why is it so important that we first understand Genesis before we can understand the Messiah. And again, what we have to understand is that as you look through Genesis the first 11 Chapters, you are going to see that the requirement for salvation has always been the same. Faith… without Faith there is no salvation. The object of one’s Faith for salvation has always been that God will bring salvation. There is nothing that we really have to do except have the Faith to believe, that even while we are still sinners, that God will make plans for us, if we believe in His word.

No-Ach (Genesis 6:9-11:32)

Posted on Oct 26, 2014

102514sd by Rabbi Paul Falk.   Cain allows sin in and focuses his all frustration on Able, instead of himself.  Ultimately killing Able.  And just in chapter 4 you start off with the death of a son, end of Chapter 4 verse 25, And Adam knew his wife again and she bore him a son and she named him Seth.  For God had appointed another seed for me instead of Able which Cain killed and for Seth to him also was a son born and he named him Enoch and men began to call on the name of Yahweh.  A new son given to replace the son that was killed.  and because the son is born, men began to call upon Yahweh.  Now, as we know scripture and we know life, we would love to say, and they lived happily ever after.  Continue to let men call upon Yahweh.  No, even if he has to break part of a judgment.  I’m reading from Genesis chapter 3, verse 14,  This is the punishment of a serpent, because you have done this you are cursed more than any cattle more than every beast of the field, on your belly you shall go and eat dust all the days of your life.  I will put enmity (distrance frustration, aggravation)  between you and the woman and between her seed and your seed.  And you shall bruise his head and he shall bruise your heel.  Where the sons come down, to the women of men, these are angelic beings, this is not Yahweh’s will in regard to what He wants for his Holiness.  And they break the enmity between the seed of the woman, and Hasatan himself.  Guess what? From a world that was all calling on the name of Yahweh, now, Yahweh goes, my spirit will not strive with men forever, so now, he has to bring the flood….

John 1:1

Posted on Oct 19, 2014

101814 SP By Rabbi Dennis Richards.    I have a difficult time when somebody comes to me and says I’ve read through the whole bible this year. We can hardly get through the Torah portion [in a year]. Because the idea is to read with comprehension, not just to read so you can say you read. Because, The only way you are going to learn about God is through His word. Not what somebody else tells you about Him, but through His word. And as you sit there reading His scriptures in English or Spanish, if you are not study his word, You have to understand the if you are not studying the word, you are not going to grow. You are not going to move too far. You are going to be stuck in a place, and words keep us stuck, you are going to have to challenge the words when we come to difficult parts of scripture. We can’t just skip over them. That’s why we have so much controversy, when people start talking about the bible, and they are so dogmatic in certain ways, they look at it, they’ve heard the same story every year. If your belief system does not line up with the Word of God then your belief system has to change. (continued on audio) Moses to Messiah by RDR Play Now | Play in Popup |...

8th Day Sukkot 2014

Posted on Oct 19, 2014

SukkotDay8sp by Rabbi Paul Falk.  But what we’re going to get into today is of course, Sukkot.  Now, my goal is to cover it as a big picture.  We see the lessons like living together. there are little bumps about living together. Loving one another We’re not perfect.  that’s a good lesson too. True compassion and love covers over a multitude of mistakes.  So we’re going to focus on that it’s about our Journey Home.  2nd Corinthians Ch5, verses 1-3, in regard to our sukkas, “For we know if our earthly house this tent is destroyed, we have a building from Elohim, a house not made with hands eternal in heaven.  And in this we groan earnestly desiring to be clothed with out habitation which is from Heaven, If indeed having been clothed we shall not be found naked.” SukkotDay8 2014 S RPF Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Rosh Kodesh truth

Posted on Oct 14, 2014

RP-10-11-2014 by Rabbi Paul Falk.   ….Theology is where you have a gap between what He told us to do and how to, when to.  And it didn’t say specific. So from there, we have to say, we’ll put a few pieces together, we’ll try and put a better picture together and then we can go and on that we’ll base an opinion and then we’re going to go ahead and do something.  Rosh Kodesh.  Rosh means head or beginning, start.  Rosh Kodesh literally means the new moon leading into Passover.  But every new month has a head or first day to it.  So lets’ look at the word Kodesh.  Defined in Strong’s as new, month or monthly.  Spoken of as the first day of the month.  It’s from Kodash meaning to renew, to be new or repair.  The moon goes through cycles where we see the light of it shining on us.  All the major feasts occur on full moons, except for of course Yom Teruah, the beginning of the month.  (continued in audio) Rosh KodeshbyRPF10-11-2014 Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Sukkot 1st Day (2014)

Posted on Oct 13, 2014

100914.sukkot1stday.sd  by Rabbi Dennis Richards.  Sukkot. Probably the most astounding thing about Sukkot is what most people don’t realize.  If Christianity understood the importance of Sukkot it would become their biggest feast.  Because it was on Sukkot that Yeshua made some of the most astounding announcements of who he was.  And it was received by much of the people in Jerusalem.  The idea of Sukkot goes way back. And we are going to start off today.  You can’t understand the reason for this feast unless you understand what brought this feast about and how the times have changed from the three temples.  That the thing that kept the three temples together was the feast of Sukkot.  And that’s why it’d become a joyous feast.  So many wonderful thing happened on Sukkot.  If you ever wanted to a study you find that the Messiah was born, not in a manger, but in a Sukka.  At this time of the year when the shepherds were still out in the field.  And if they understood that they wouldn’t need all these other days that they made up to conform to scripture.  God already gave us the pattern, he already gave us the Moedim, the Holy Days.  So we are going to start out with what Isaiah thought about water… (continued in audio) Sukkot2014byRDR Play Now | Play in Popup |...
