We have been sharing with you over the recent weeks that there has been a perceptible increase in anti-semitic activities in our nation. We have seen it in our U.S.Congress, and now we are seeing it in our own city. A couple of days ago someone spray painted a swastica just above the cornerstone at Church In The City/ Beth Abraham. As I shared last week, it is time to step up the intercession and fasting for our city and this nation! The time of complacency and apathy is over, The accuser has stepped up his strategy and it is certainly time for the body of Messiah to walk in truth and love to confront his schemes! This Shabbat, April 6th, I will wrap up our series on the New Covenant, as we explore the freedom we have in it! Actually, the liberty we have in the Messiah as we pursue the Torah of God, is the opposite of religion, because it leads to intimacy, not just keeping rules and checking the right boxes! You know, we are just a few weeks away from Passover, the first major Feast of the year, and I sense that at these times as the Jewish people search the scriptures, their hearts are very tender to the Messiah so pray that the veil would be lifted as they search their scriptures!
WE WILL HAVE A POT-LUCK ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE, AND STAY FOR SOME WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP. It has been so good seeing all the folks staying for dance practice at 2pm. It is lots of fun, as they prepare for Passover and also special events coming up, Thank you David and Laura! Also, Kent has been doing an amazing job teaching Biblical Hebrew faithfully at 9am! Following Oneg, at 3pm, we have our Torah Club where we study the portion of the week, and have great discussions as we learn to walk in the Torah of God!
