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. 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.
R. Paul Falk continues the series on TREES with a message on the 8th Day of Sukkot (Tabernacles) about the command to collect four different kinds of fruit or branches at Sukkot and what this actually represents in the lives of God’s people.
R. Paul Falk begins a new series entitled, “Mayim,” which means water, and proceeds to show, from the original Hebrew word, how water is used as a metaphor for other things, from all the way back to Genesis 1. Even in other forms such as rain or dew in the Scriptures, we understand that water comes down from the heavens. And before there was rain, there was a mist that came up from the earth…
R. Paul Falk looks at Yeshua’s parables about the tree in which “the birds of heaven nest” and “the beasts of the field rest in the shade.” From many other such references to the birds and the beasts, he shows the true meaning of these metaphorical creatures as they pertain to certain characters that always seem to be present in prophesied judgment scenarios.
R. Paul Falk brings the 7th installment of the Trees series showing what—or rather who—”the mustard seed” was in Yeshua’s parables. The connections from Genesis to the Revelation are amazing as this simple parable unfolds to reveal a very interesting perspective on who we are today based on this tiny seed.
R. Dennis Richards shares a Yom Kippur message which gives a fresh overview of why we do what we do on this ancient holy day.
