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 |...

Erev Yom Kippur

Posted on Oct 6, 2014

100314erevyomkippur.sp By Rabbi Paul Falk.  We throw around a lot of words in the spiritual kingdom and we act like we truly understand them.  Like Peace, take a moment a think about this, do you really understand Peace, Faith, Hope.  Do we really truly understand what it means to be atoned for?  Yes, that means redeemed. Ok, what does redeemed mean?  You’ll answer with another big religious word, and another big religious word.  And you’ll sit back going well….I don’t totally know.  I know I need a covering.  So were going to try and cover it today.  and I want you to think of atonement today in regard to a puzzle…we have no idea what it means compared to the entire world… ErevYomKippur2014 Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Jealousy Part 3

Posted on Sep 29, 2014

RPF Jealousy Part 3 Rabbi Paul Falk.  There are so many scriptures that I had to cut off today, if you get a chance go back to the scriptures that talk about the strongman in the house that is divided, it completely connects into what we are going to talk about today. Who knew that such an emotion like jealousy would play such a major role in the Kingdom and is used so much by Yahweh. To review, some previous lessons for us on which to focus. First of all, Yahweh is a jealous Elohim, and he wants to be our only Elohim. Period. He is not about us mixing Him with someone else, or His ways and the world’s ways, No. He is giving everything He has completely for you, He wants the same back. Satan was the one who taught us to be like him. The him that was in the garden to aspire to be like Elohim knowing good and evil. And his point was to actually rise up and become our own Elohim. Knowing good and evil going, “I can say, this is good and this is bad.” How many times have we heard today about specifically faith? Well faith and belief haven’t changed over the years, they haven’t progressed. Then we’re like in the 21st century, they expect that truth evolves. No… Truth is Truth because it is the same, No, we evolve to the Truth. Truth should not change if it is Truth. It deals with pride and rebellion and that leads to the fall. We see that in Genesis.

Erev Yom Teruah

Posted on Sep 26, 2014

092414erevyomteruah.sd By RDR   ..and it’s to teach you about the moedim, this particular moedim because there is such a confusion, this moedim has so many names to it, and it’s usually known as Rosh Hashana, but that’s not the name that God gave it.  In fact he doesn’t give us a reason for this Holy Day even.  He just says you must hear the sound of the shofar,  He doesn’t tell us why.  He just says pay attention, because the sound of the shofar is throughout, the sound of the shofar is going to herald in the King.  So he wants you to hear so you can be familiar with the sound.  You might be in the middle of shopping and you hear this strange sound coming from the sky and if you never heard the shofar call you don’t know what it is.  So He wants you to hear it.  This is where we get the feast of Yom Teruah.  Yahweh spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to the Sons of Israel saying in the 7th month, on the 1st day of the month, you shall have a rest.  A reminder by blowing of trumpets, a reminder, a Holy Convocation.  You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to Yahweh.”  Today, is the first day of the 7th month, and the beginning of the moedim.  It is a Holy day that has long been  shrouded in mystery, and even it’s name, Rosh Hashana, which literally means the head of the year.  Rosh Hashana, incorrectly is commonly known as the Jewish New Year.  And it might before the Jewish people today, their New Year.  But in no way should we mistakenly take it for Yahweh’s New Year.  Traditions of men… (continued in audio) ErevYomTeruah by RDR 2014 Play Now | Play in Popup |...

Abraham, The Friend of God

Posted on Sep 26, 2014

092514yomteruah.sd by RDR     Yom Teruah which is the proper name for this feast. There is a tradition in Judaism that you read the Achida which is the binding of Issac. The story never changes. You could read the story a hundred times, two hundred times and it never changes. But to set the stage for the Achida, what we find is that at this time Abraham and Sarah are old and childless, and desperate because they have been promised by God that they are going to have offspring that are as numerous [as the stars in] the sky and here they are waiting and waiting and waiting. In our culture if we wait more than 3 or 4 minutes we get upset. In God’s culture, you wait upon Him, and you wait upon Him, and you wait upon Him, you wait upon Him, Until you are calling out to Him “Well, what is going to happen?” and He tells you in My time. In our culture you might say, just a second, and I’ll answer your prayer. And if you remember that a day is like a thousand years in the eyes of God, a second is probably somewhere out there also. But He will answer in His time. He won’t answer in your time. But they are old and they are waiting. Sarah unable to bear a child gets desperate so what does she do. She gives Abraham, (continued on audio)   Yom Teruah 2014 by RDR Play Now | Play in Popup |...
