Every service features a special message on selected topics. Sometimes these messages focus on an upcoming holy day, a special insight into the Scriptures, or a pressing topic regarding current events.
Each week, and on the holy days, the messages are posted here online. Enjoy!
R. Paul Falk shows how the incident at Baal Peor in which the Israelites became defiled was the original idea of Balak, king of Moab, but Moab was not punished for this. Midyan was. Why?
R. Paul Falk expounds on the even in which Yeshua questions the women at the well in John 4, expounding on the differences between Samaritans and Jews, especially as depicted by passages in the Tanakh (Old Testament). A very educational teaching about being a well of water in our Father’s Word.
R. Paul Falk shares the Torah-based background behind the phrase, “unless he take up his cross” which actually has an entirely different meaning than most of us have been taught to believe!
R. Paul Falk looks at Yeshua’s rebuke of the Rabbis in Matthew 3 and reveals the Torah background behind “raising up children of Abraham from these stones.” Some fascinating links to Adam are shown, as well as links to the deep sleep of Abraham for the making of the covenant, the animals he cut in two, and even why the BIRDS were not cut.
R. Paul Falk takes an in-depth look at what Yeshua meant when he said “Before Abraham was, I am,” which is not what most of us think. In fact he was stating that he was the WORD which dwelt with the Father before the foundation of the world, and this has significant meaning for each of us today.
R. Paul Falk takes a deep look at the doctrine of Abraham’s righteousness being based on his faith, which only makes sense with other scriptures when faith is understood as trust that actually contains certain actions. A solid look at a lot of the verses used to make the case for salvation by grace and not by works, though with a clearer understanding of where obedience to the Word fits in.
R. Paul Falk looks at the phrase often translated “under the law” and shows how the correct understanding of this phrase reconciles completely with being “saved by grace,” the doctrine of circumcision, and what it means to be free with the liberty that Messiah’s death brought about.
R. Paul Falk focuses on the idea of taking up your cross which is prominently taught in some Christian faiths, and shows the Hebrew root meanings this phrase and what is the more likely translation of Yeshua’s actual expectations in this regard.
R. Paul Falk shows an amazing correlation between Abraham’s travels and Jacob’s, which also represent ours if we “look to the ancient paths of our fathers…”
R. Paul Falk delves into the topic of certain people which are banned from entering the assembly of Israel according to Torah (e.g. Moabites, eunuchs), and he shows a commonly misunderstood truth with scriptural examples of banned people being accepted into the fold.
