Counting the Omer

Posted on May 25, 2014

by Rabbi Paul Falk.  Why are we commanded to count the Omer?  Seven (7) weeks of days (Shabbats) completed, and then the day after, for a total of fifty days.  Lev 23:17 you shall bring from dwellings two (2) wave loafs.   Deuteronomy 16:9-10, you shall count 7 weeks for yourself, from the time you shall put the sickle to the grain.  You shall give an offering as Yahweh blessed you.  Deuteronomy 16:11-12 .   You shall rejoice before Yahweh your Elohim, you,  your son, your daughter, your male servant your female servant , the Levite who is in your gates, the stranger, the fatherless, the widow, shall worship and praise Yahweh, and you shall remember you were a slave in Egypt, you shall be careful to observe the statutes. Key points to consider:   Count after first fruits.  First fruits in the midst of unleavened bread the first thing to come up was barley.  You would cut it (the first of the barley), and offer it to Yahweh.  (You could not eat leavened bread again until after first fruits is offered.)  New grain offering is going to be baked with leavening. Connections:  to this season of counting is the Sabbath year and the year of Jubilee. (Lev. 25:2-3)  Speak to the children of Israel and say “When you come into the land, then the land shall keep a Shabbat to Yahweh.  Six years you shall sew your field, and six years your shall prune your vineyard and gather your fruit.  But in the seventh (7th) year, there shall be a Shabbat of solemn rest for the land.  A Shabbat to Yahweh.  You shall neither sew your field nor prune your vineyard.  What grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap nor gather the grapes of the undressed vine; for it is a year of rest unto the land.”  (listen for more…) Counting the Omer by RPF 052414 Play Now | Play in Popup |...

What Did Yeshua Teach?

Posted on May 18, 2014

by Rabbi Dennis Richards.  The “rest” believing world would like us to believe that Yeshua taught a new covenant or set of rules further to the old rules from Moses on Mt. Sinai.  Instead the reality is he taught the same thing, and there are scriptural that demonstrate. What Did Yeshua Teach? by RDR Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Moses

Posted on May 10, 2014

by RPF.   Discipleship is more involved than evangelism.  It requires becoming a part of the lives of the disciples; a commitment to help and guide. Moses early beginning being placed among the reeds in an ark (of reeds, with pitch) , can remind of Noah being saved from the sea.  Moses through God, delivering his people from oppression, and leading them to where he would be on the mountain with God and teach what God had given him.

The Ancient Path to Shavuot

Posted on May 4, 2014

by Rabbi Dennis Richards.   The Book of Acts was not the beginning of something new but a continuation of the path the Messiah was on.  The Resurrection was not the end but the beginning.  The Messiah said if you want to come to God follow me.  He gave us the moedim, the times and the seasons, to find our way back.  Today we travel on the path that Yeshua made for us to follow.  The desciples had come together to wait for what was promised to them.
