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 that Yeshua celebrated the Festival of Lights, or Chanukah, and that he likely used the well-known account of Chanukah from the book of I Maccabees as the outline of his teaching about the end times recorded in Matthew 24.
R. Paul Falk delivers a penetrating message about the tongue as seen in the scriptures, in showing that what we speak is a fountain of what lies in the heart and connects the letter of James to the Torah story in which Judah is seen to make a drastic change in his life.
R. Dennis Richards talks about the recent Thanksgiving holiday and shows through historical accounts what this day used to mean compared to what it seems to mean today, and re-emphasizes the point of our giving thanks to the One Who Provides.
R. Paul Falk shows an amazing connection between the living water that Yeshua spoke of with the woman at the well in John 3, and the Word of God that is “in your heart” from Deuteronomy, with a revelation about the purpose of the Father’s water in each of us.
R. Paul Falk continues the Mayim (water) series with the accounts of Isaac following in his father’s footsteps and even re-digging the wells that were originally dug by Abraham and filled in by the Philistines. One of the big questions answered is, “Why?”
R. Dennis Richards likens the Torah to a jigsaw puzzle, with some missing pieces, emphasizing that those who want to solve it must seek to know our Creator with all their heart, and He will reveal Himself and His truths. In just the first few verses of Genesis 1, he shows how many of the missing pieces are lying right under the surface waiting to be discovered.
R. Paul Falk expounds on the Torah portion, Chayyei Sarah, in which Abraham’s servant is sent to bring the perfect wife for his son, Isaac. His prayers are answered at a well in his destination, as Isaac’s prayers were being heard as well. A proper method for asking for God’s will, and His confirmation, are illustrated in this portion.
R. Paul Falk delivers an outstanding continuation of the Mayim (Water) series by showing correlations between Hagar when she left Sarah with her son Ishmael, and the Samaritan woman at the well that Yeshua spent time with answering her questions. There is a certain thread that is seen in both of these stories that pertains to us and our relationship with God.
R. Paul Falk continues the Mayim (Water) series starting from the weekly Torah portion, Lech Lecha, and showing supporting scriptures of how people actually are living wells of water to which other people come. When understanding what water is as a metaphor, this presents some very interesting implications.
R. Paul Falk concludes the TREES series with a relevant message about the whole point of trees in the Scriptures, bearing fruit. As a metaphor, we can see that what makes trees in the scriptures bear good fruit and how it applies to us as bearing fruit in the kingdom of God.
