To Be a Blessing
We are all called to be a blessing. 1Jo 3:18 admonishes us to demonstrate our love “in deed and truth.” We are called to community, but we have to find place in our community that allows us to engage and build and serve, so that we can be a blessing and so that our community can be a blessing, too.
Little Children, Love One Another
Yeshua, and his apostles, taught that love is the greatest gift. The New Covenant teaches that G-d’s Spirit will write His commandments on our hearts and will empower us to walk in them, to love G-d and to love one another. This is the only way that G-d’s love, exampled in the life, obedience and sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua, can be formed in us. John reminded…
The Beginning and Sin
In this week’s message, as we begin again in B’reisheet (Genesis), Brant poses the question, “What is sin?”, and asks us to consider the effects of church history, our culture, and our worldview on our answer. Is our answer more complicated than it needs to be? Could the answer be much simpler than we think?
New Covenant in the Torah
In this week’s message, Brant shows us that the message of the New Covenant, the Gospel message, is not first revealed in the Gospels, or even in the words of the prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel, but is actually rooted in Torah and can be first seen in Parashah Nitzavim—in Deuteronomy 30.
What is Being Made Old and Vanishing?
In this week’s message, Brant looks at what’s being made “old” in Hebrews 8. Reminding us that that the Old Covenant is Israel’s agreement to so all the things that ADONAI has spoken through Moshe—and not the Torah itself, we discover that what’s really being made “old and vanishing” is our faithless heart condition that…
Reaching the Weak
In this week’s message, Brant weaves together the messages from our “Foundations” series using Romans 14-15. He highlights the very practical ways that Paul gives to walk out faith that reveals Messiah Yeshua to the Jewish community, preparing them to reach the world.
In this week’s message, Brant looked at “covenant community” and how the biblical model of community is at odds with our contemporary culture. Instead of focusing on self and emphasizing love of self, as disciples of Yeshua we should walk out our love for one another, showing it through our actions, first to our mishpocha and then to the world around us.…
The Prophetic Calling on Gentiles
In this week’s message, Brant continued to explore the role of Gentiles within Messianic Judaism, highlighting the “Great Commission” given to them in Romans 11:11-15.
Gentiles in the New Covenant
In this week’s message, Trey shifts the focus to the Gentiles in Messiah and the distinction between Jews and Gentiles in Messiah. He reminds us the ADONAI is a G-d of distinctions and that is reflected in the commonwealth of Israel where Jews and Gentiles serve together and worship side-by-side, each in their own, distinctive role.
One New Man
In this week’s message, Brant examines the meaning of “one new man,” exploring how it has been traditionally misunderstood as equating oneness with sameness. This historical misinterpretation doesn’t reflect the the diversity and distinctive roles within the 1st century body of Messiah that we find in Scripture.
