Run the Race 3 – Three Segments

Posted Jan 15, 2017

mountaintrail-500R. Paul Falk presents an interesting view of the race we are running by identifying three distinct segments of the race that span three generations. Why our Father is called “the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” is evident in scriptures about asking our fathers for the ancient paths and the importance of imparting the Torah to our children.

mountaintrail-500R.

Repairers of the Breach

Posted Dec 4, 2016

christmasdinner-500R. Dennis Richards gives a practical and very insightful message about what it means to shine as a light among our families and friends during the holiday season. As passionate truth-seekers, we want everyone to know what we’ve found, but we often miss the best way to be “rebuilders of the ancient ruins” and “repairers of the breach.”

Toldot – Only Begotten Son? 2

Posted Dec 4, 2016

onlybegottenson-500R. Paul Falk answers some of the tough questions about the scriptures involving Jacob whom God “loved” and Esau whom He “hated”…explaining the connection to the wives of Jacob and Esau, and how all of this relates to US being either “children of the promise” or those who are the descendants of a cursed people from the line of Ham.

Only Begotten Son? 1

Posted Nov 27, 2016

onlybegottenson-500R. Paul Falk examines the phrase, “only begotten son” in several scriptural instances where the one referred to had an older brother. The most obvious case was Abraham being commanded to offer up his “only” son when we know that he had Ishmael prior to Isaac. This seemingly conflicting phrase carries a deep meaning, not only with Isaac, but with the Messiah.
