With this Torah portion that features the Nazarite vow, R. Paul Falk builds on the Strong Man series with insightful tie-ins to the story of Samson and shows how we can guard against being bound by the enemy.
R. Paul Falk continues this insightful series revealing the purpose of the enemy and what he is after in our lives, especially relating to what he wants to steal from the house of the strong man in Matthew 12 and Luke 11. He also reveals WHY the enemy wants to steal this, and how it affects us when he does. He concludes with an amazing tie-in to the Passover lamb and the first few verses of Genesis 1!
We have read that Ruth was a Moabite, but also that no Moabite shall ever enter the assembly of Israel. Is this a Scriptural contradiction? R. Dennis Richards looks at the meaning of the original words behind our translations to reveal the answer to this mystery, and shows how we must study the Hebrew to solve what may seem like scriptural discrepancies.
R. Paul Falk continues with the Strong Man series answering questions about HOW the enemy gets in, WHY he is constantly attacking us, WHAT he knows about us, WHEN we’re weak, and WHO he uses “on the inside.” This teaching cracks open the strategies of the dark side revealing even the crafty tactics of the world’s “ministers of light.”
R. Dennis Richards points out that sin predates Torah and explains how we must master it, or it will master us. Overcoming habitual sin is related to understanding the role of the Spirit and how it is the Truth that sets us free.
Is the Messiah actually the Father? Is Yeshua actually Yahweh in the flesh? R. Dennis Richards answers these questions by looking at numerous passages in the Scriptures, from the Torah to the last chapter of The Revelation.
R. Paul Falk expounds on Matthew 12:29 about “binding the strong man” and explains the ways of demonic forces and how the enemy enters our lives as sin. He also explains how we are to guard against it and how YHVH defeats the enemy on our behalf. A foundational teaching on guarding against sin and protecting our righteousness, our peace, and our entire faith.
R. Paul Falk shines a bright light on the dark motives of the Pharisees which Yeshua warns against as their “yeast.” As His disciples today, we must be very careful of this spreading agent that causes puffing up.
R. Dennis Richards takes aim at religious clichés that have been used so much, we have lost the original meanings. He uses Psalm 150 as example of how our modern translations have obliterated the actual Name of YHVH and have nullified the original Hebrew meaning of what is now a common cliché.
R. Dennis Richards examines Yeshua’s warnings to beware of leavening in several examples that give great insight to what it means for us in the world around us. In one example, Yeshua identified it as hypocrisy, but what about the “leaven of Herod” in Mark 8:15?
