YHVH’s Will Part 2 Mattote (Numbers 30:2-32:42)

Posted on Jul 19, 2014

071914spby Rabbi Paul Falk– Moses spoke to the tribal leaders of Israel…Torah portion is Mattote.  It is the last two in Numbers before we go into Deuteronomy.  So the first few Hebrew words that we’d be reading.  Now what’s intriguing is this means “said.”  usually we’d say “Bada-behr YHVH”  This Torah starts with “Bada-behr Moshe”  Now, I am continuing with what I started last time.  We started talking about this idea of YHVH’s will.  Now I’m going to spend about six (6) slides doing a quick review, to catch our minds up. And then we are going to start off in a different direction.  So, in regard to YHVH’s will, last time we met, this is what we talked about. We said, putting our plans aside to allow his to be accomplished.  It was humbling ourselves, to serve Him.  It was truly being willing and open to change.  Probably the hardest one for us is the flexible expectations, because our expectations are our goals, they’re what we are striving for, and that they could be changed on the way, is very difficult.  I brought up Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth, It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”  What we talked about last time is YHVH’s will is always based upon His word… Mattote (Numbers 30:2-32:42) YHVH's Will Part 2 Play Now | Play in Popup |...

YHVH’s Will

Posted on Jul 13, 2014

By Rabbi Paul Falk.  071214sp  There is only problem with going off to vacation, for me, because I get off to vacation and it gives more study time.  we’re driving some where and I go, Hon, you got a piece of paper, I need you to write this verse down, and this verse down and this verse and she did, and that’s basically the teaching.  I don’t have control over when He is going to reveal something to me.  There’s a good chance that what we are going to start with today, is going to have to lead over to another session.  Cause even though I will mention one aspect, we only going to mention one aspect of Yahweh’s will, okay, and that’s really what he put on my heart, was trying to understand this concept not just the will has people have taught it, but what is his will, what is the foundation, what it is based on. When you have a request. We are going to start with Yeshua teaching on prayer.  And this is the thing that is important because it says here that when you have  request, isn’t that prayer.  This is how Messiah teaches us how to ask God for that.  So this is Matthew 6,7,8, and “when you pray do not use vain repetitions as the heathens do,  for they think that they will be heard for their many words.  Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things that you have need of before you ask Him.”  See Yahweh already has the future planned out, which to me is something, especially in the last few weeks, the realization, you know why He knows what you’re going to ask for, because He has already set up the problems and situations before you got to them. So He already knows.  He is sitting here going, 3, 2, 1– is he going to pray? or not? See, He already knows, He’s creating some the problems that you need Him, alright?  So, He goes on from there, Matthew 6, 9 and 10, in this manner therefor pray, “Our Father, who is in heaven, Holy is your name, ”  now, when you say your name,  you’re speaking about Yahweh’s authority, authority means having power over something.  So you are saying, Your authority is set-apart and different from everywhere else, because You have authority all things.  Okay, “Your Kingdom come” there’s your first prayer.  What You want for a Kingdom, You build it, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”  Those four words usually are mentioned the hardest part, some of the toughest times in our lives.  And usually when we are mentioning them, we are mumbling them or struggling, ….we go… Y-o-u-r  W-i-l-l be done, whatever it is going to be.  That ties in to the point of His Authority.  Okay.  In understanding that,  His authority, and...

But You Have Heard It Said

Posted on Jul 6, 2014

by Rabbi Dennis Richards.  The Messiah made statements that were intended to clarify the commandments, yet the present day believeing world interprets them as replacing the original covenant.  Some misinterpretations of words used in the translation also contributes to these misunderstandings.

The Gift of Solomon

Posted on Jun 22, 2014

by Rabbi Dennis Richards.  If the spirit of God visited you today and promised you to give you any one thing that you asked. What would you ask for? Remember it would be for your lifetime.  Luxury, riches, long life?  What happened to Solomon when he asked for Wisdom.  David’s son Solomon was given this very opportunity when he took to the throne.  God appeared to Solomon and asked what he would like to be given.  Solomon responded, “You have dealt with my father David with great loving kindness, and have made me King in his place, now, O Yahweh Elohim, your promise to my father David is fulfilled, for you have made me King over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth, give me now Wisdom and Knowledge that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this great people, of yours.”    Simply that fact that Solomon asked for Wisdom and Knowledge impressed God.  It showed that Solomon’s heart was right before God at that time.  Yahweh responds to Solomon’s request, saying that because you have asked for Wisdom and Knowledge and not riches, long life, or the life of your enemies, I will give you riches and wealth, more than any other King of Israel has had before.  I believe that the wealth was a test, to see how Solomon would handle the Wisdom and Knowledge given him by God.  If God gave you what you wanted and then he gave you more, you have to wonder why he gave you more.  Everything we do in this life is a test.  God will give us desires of our heart. Proverbs were written to reveal the mysteries of God.  and Proverbs were written to reveal the mysteries of God, they reveal a true lesson. For instruction and wisdom, for understanding, to gain an understanding of judgement and iniquity, to give a simple the simple prudence, to offer discretion and knowledge to the young, to increase the wisdom of somebody already wise, to come to understand wise counsel so that enigmas or signs and proverbs may be understood so that the riddles of the wise may be understood. It is likely that Solomon wrote all of the proverbs.  Proverbs is a Spiritual book on how to live in the spiritual Kingdom of God.  It has nothing to do with the secular world at all. Wisdom, Understanding, the Commandments or the Laws of God, Sin and Iniquity, the breaking of God’s law, comparisons between God’s ways and man’s way of life.   The Gift of Solomon by Rabbi D Richards Play Now | Play in Popup |...

YHVH & His Word

Posted on Jun 14, 2014

by Rabbi Paul Falk.  Yahweh and his word.  Most of Christianity only goes by Matthew to Revelation.  How can Yeshua be a part of God, Yahweh, but not be Yahweh.  How can that be?  This teaching is not literally on Yeshua.  It is on the Word.  Invariably we have to go to John verses 1 thru 5.  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with Elohim.  All things were made through him.  Without him nothing was made that was made.  In him was life. And that life was the light of men.  And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness could not comprehend it. A part of him, yet not him. Key points: The word has a dual reality.  To be with, means I have to have separation.  To be them, means unity.  So what you have in the Word is separation and a unity all at once.  He, the Word, was in the beginning, through him all things were made.  In him was life and the light of man.  Isaiah  55: 8-9, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways my ways,  says Yahweh, for as the Heavens are higher than the earth, So are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. ….most theology today is the earth trying to comprehend the heavens.
