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 |...Read More »

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 |...Read More »

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.

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 |...Read More »

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 |...Read More »
