Between that last sufganyot, the extra latke I didn’t need and that incredible pasta I was “forced” to eat, the time for an after Chanukah fast has arrived! We celebrated the Festival of Dedication, Chanukah, over the last week and it was truly a blessed time of fellowship, as we gathered in homes, lit Hanukkiah, reflected on Yeshua as the Light of The World, and ate oily comfort food! Millie and I want to thank all of those who hosted the various evenings, you were great.
This Shabbat, December 23rd, we will be continuing our study of Romans 8, with the powerful theme of what it means to be joint heirs with Messiah! I believe when we grasp this concept, not just theologically but experiential, we will be transformed and walk in greater authority than we ever have before. Abba wants us to go beyond an intellectual understanding of God, into our incorruptible inheritance we have in Yeshua, in this age and the age to come! It’s supposed to be cold this weekend, but you do not want to miss this service, so come on up to “the mountain”!
WE WILL NOT, I REPEAT, WE WILL NOT BE HAVING AN ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE.
I know many people will be traveling out of town over the next several days, visiting family, and we want to pray God’s protection as you travel, and that you will be a blessing wherever you are! If you won’t be traveling, we look forward to seeing you at Or Chaim this Shabbat. Here is an encouragement from The writer of Hebrews, “And do not neglect our own meetings ... but encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching”. These are perilous and exciting times we are living in, so we really do need one another, your uniqueness, your prayers and encouragement, as well as the gifts He has imparted into you. See you on Shabbat!
Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!
