Yeshua and the Afterlife

Posted Jun 18, 2017

R. Dennis Richards brings a fresh perspective on the afterlife, answering some tough questions like: Will we go to Heaven? Will we have physical bodies or will we only be spirits? What about Yeshua’s appearance after the resurrection? These and other questions are answered according to the Scriptures and the words of Yeshua himself.

 

Passover 10 – The Harvest

Posted Jun 11, 2017

R. Paul Falk presents the significance of the Torah being put into an ark as it relates to the Messiah’s charge to his disciples about going into the harvest. He also shows an interesting correlation between the tongue as a sword and the prophecy about swords being beat into plowshares.

 

 

Passover 9 – Shavuot – Choose Whom to Serve

Posted Jun 5, 2017

R. Paul Falk delivers a foundational message about our journey from Passover to Shavuot, in which we must learn how to choose the one true God in a world that has created so many idols. The bronze serpent was made into an idol, and then Moses was idolized, as well as even the Messiah himself. In this journey we must discover who our God really is and then choose to serve Him, and Him alone.

 

Glory on the Mount

Posted Jun 5, 2017

R. Dennis Richards presents an insightful explanation for the transfiguration in which Yeshua appeared to be shining like the sun while speaking with Moses and Elijah, from identifying the actual mountain on which this occurred, to explaining the meaning of this mysterious event.

 

Passover 8 – Bitter Water

Posted Jun 5, 2017

R. Paul Falk connects the Passover command to eat bitter herbs with the hard bondage in Egypt, the bitter waters at Marah, and the test for an adulterous wife to reveal a very interesting meaning of it all pertaining to what comes out of our mouths.

 

 

Passover 7 – Journey of Redemption

Posted May 28, 2017

R. Paul Falk expands on the concept of redeeming Israel from bondage in Egypt, showing that our redemption is more of a journey than a single event. He also highlights the cycles of 7s in Scripture with regard to freedom from slavery and total restoration.

 

 

Passover 6 – Idolatry

Posted May 21, 2017

R. Paul Falk continues the series on Passover and specifically on purging out the leaven from our lives, which often takes the form of idolatry in ways that we many not recognize. He also shows from Leviticus how the Father removes this leaven when we do not.

 

 

The Eternal Name

Posted May 21, 2017

R. Dennis Richards teaches on the Name of YHVH, honing in on the eternal tense of the phrase, “I AM WHO I AM” in Exodus 3:14. He sheds light on the fact that translators have obscured the true name, and that the world has rejected Who He Is, even today, despite His statement in Malachi 3:6, “I, YHVH, do not change.”

 

Passover 5 – Leaven Put Out

Posted May 14, 2017

R. Paul Falk delivers a strong warning by showing a fascinating array of interconnections between the leaven being removed from the house, the putting of lepers—including Moses’ sister, Miriam—outside the camp, the infected stones of a house that had to be put out, and spiritual pride. This sin, like a lion waiting outside the door to devour us, is like yeast if allowed to come in, which starts as just a tiny bit and then leavens the whole lump of dough.

Why Nicodemus

Posted May 7, 2017

R. Dennis Richards presents an interesting look at Nicodemus, a leading Jewish teacher who came to Yeshua secretly by night. Nicodemus represents those of us who truly seek the secrets of life and the truth about God. This teaching provides the answer to exactly what Yeshua meant by his statement in John 3:3, “…unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
