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 starts a series on Passover, looking at some historically confusing issues like which night the original Passover occurred, whether Messiah’s “last supper” was really a Passover seder, why he used bread to represent his body, and what he meant by “Do this in remembrance of me.”
R. Dennis Richards explains how today’s Easter holidays, which may seem to be scriptural, cannot possibly fit the Messiah’s “sign of Jonah” and reveals how the enemy changes times and seasons in a way which can actually grieve the Holy Spirit.
R. Paul Falk connects the commands regarding the Sabbath, to Noah, the covenant made with Abraham, and the original curse of the ground, to reveal a fascinating insight about rest, death, peace and eternal life. An exceptional teaching.
R. Paul Falk presents the difference between two Hebrew words in the Torah: Shabbat and Shabbatone and analyzes the meaning of “servile” or “customary” work in this context. He also examines the verses regarding Shavuot, or Feast of Weeks, regarding when this commanded holy day should be observed.
R. Dennis Richards presents the story of Purim from the book of Esther which never mentions the name of God once and yet shows the hidden hand of God in every turn of events in the way that He saves His people from their enemies.
R. Dennis Richards shares a refreshing look at Restoration, from the viewpoint of mankind after the fall, to how each one of us are personally restored after mistakes from our past. He points out the falling and restoration of several great leaders in the scriptures and gives practical advise for us about moving on in the newness of life that our merciful God provides.
R. Paul Falk continues the series on the Sabbath with the Torah portion, Terumah, about being called to build a house (tabernacle) for the Eternal One. He highlights big differences between keeping the Shabbat in our dwellings compared to the commands regarding His house, almost all of which come down to the heart behind certain works on Shabbat.
R. Paul Falk continues the Shabbat series by looking at numerous trappings of doctrines that have been historically based on mentions in scripture or traditions, but are not specifically commands. He describes the differences between scriptural references and traditions and clarifies the very few actual commands regarding keeping the Shabbat holy.
R. Paul Falk continues the Shabbat series by clarifying the meaning of different passages about the Sabbath that have been misinterpreted to create entire doctrines and legalistic rules that were not the original intention of the verses in their proper context.
In this Torah portion and message, R. Paul Falk continues the Shabbat series with some very clarifying insights about the enemy’s primary goal which is to enslave us, and how YHVH rescues us, bringing us out of bondage to give us freedom and rest. He also warns about how we sometimes misinterpret isolated scriptures and formulate false doctrines that we impose on others.
