I was reading an article recently by one of our Tikkun elders who lives in Israel, Eitan Shishkoff, that reminded me of what God’s heart in these last days really is. It’s not complicated, and as a matter of fact, may seem superficially simple if it weren’t so true, “May these twin passions of our Father - the Harvest and Brotherhood - motivate us and guide our priorities as we consider how to live in the last days.” Yeshua desires that "…all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth”, and He has chosen you and me to be His agents to bring this truth to people everywhere! The Psalmist likens the fellowship and brotherhood of Believers as the anointing oil that COMMANDS the blessing of LIFE FOREVERMORE! So as you can see, if these things are a priority for our Heavenly Father, should they not be for us?
This Shabbat, February 16th, I will be continuing my series on COVENANT by looking further into the BRIT CHADASHA (NEW COVENANT) and how it is not just a re-newed Covenant of old but something so amazing and comprehensive!
FOLLOWING THE SERVICE WE WILL BE HAVING OUR POTLUCK ONEG, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR THE FELLOWSHIP!
Some important events coming up that you need to put in your calendar. On Sunday, March 17th, from 5pm-8pm, we will be joining with a CITYWIDE CELEBRATION OF PURIM at CHURCH IN THE CITY/BETH ABRAHAM! Several Messianic congregations in the Metro area are coming together to celebrate the miraculous salvation of the Jewish people from Haman’s (Boo!) planned genocide, as recounted in the Book of Esther. We will start off with a meal and then have a glorious time of worship and a creative telling of the story, followed by games for the children and a costume contest! This will be a great and fun time for the whole family, and a great opportunity to invite friends and family to this Biblical festival! CITC/BA IS LOCATED AT 1580 GAYLORD ST. DENVER, 80206.
