Rabbi Jonathan delivered the drash to our children, on Shoftim or Judges, Deuteronomy 16:18 – 21:9. The idea; there is no partiality with the scriptures, we should heed pastoral counsel, tithes are to be given, false prophets are not of God, accidental manslaughter can be forgiven, and lying is bad. Then in the sermon, Pastor Glen from River In The Hills Church, spoke on dwelling with the Holy Spirit, in light of the upcoming Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). And there was also the prophetic message Pastor Glenn delivered… “I see a vortex over this house, that is going to make people in your sphere of influence to decide, are they for Jesus in His Jewishness, or are they against Yeshua in His Jewishness.” Amein!

Messiah Echad is positively being known by our fruit, and every service is a beautiful testament to the benefits of doing His will. During our parsha, Re’eh “See!” from Deuteronomy 11:26 – 16:17, Rabbi Jonathan spoke on the various calendars people leverage to read the scriptures. But no matter the method(s), it is ultimately about studying, then doing, if we want the blessings… alternatively we can chose the curse, from living lawlessly. Personally, I will chose blessings, and dwelling in His house! Then in the message, R. Jonathan explored loving God better, as we aim to do, per our Mission and Vision.

And next week, please remember to plan around that 5min detour on County Road 245, if you use the South Entrance.
