Judeo-Christian Special Teachings
Here you will find teachings prepared for special events or released outside of the schedule of teaching moments and teaching letters.
In this article, we look at the holiday season and see how it is all connected and how we are to relate to it as believers in Messiah.
It is traditional to read the book of Esther on Purim. In this article we want to tell the story with a new twist. We want to look at this story with an Apostolic flair.
What is holy fire? What is the connection between this holy fire and the believer? This was a message presented during our Pentecost luncheon.
Interesting facts about Pentecost (Shavuot).
Interesting facts about the holiday of Rosh Hashanah and the High Holy Days.
There are ten days between the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement. These ten days are considered the holiest time of the year. During these ten days, you blow the shofar (a trumpet made of a ram's horn) and give a reason for blowing it. We are going to look at why these ten reasons are important in the life of a believer and how important it is to be prepared.
Each of the sections of this teaching are hung as a separate poster on the walls of our educational sukkah during the Feast of Tabernacles, and provide information on what the symbolism of Sukkot means for believers.
This teaching explains the origins of Secular Humanism and its future as the religion of Babylon the Great.
This next year, let us commit to bringing the Good News, the light of God's Word, to a world that so desperately needs to hear the truth. We want to consider having times of prayer over this next year when we would pray together for the Jewish people, like Esther did; for our country, like Ruth; for the persecuted church, like the Maccabees; and for our needs to be met, like Mary and Joseph.
Today the world has become so uncertain. We have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Fear has gripped our souls. Well, we are not alone, for even the disciples of Yeshua felt that way. Let's take a closer look at this story.
Many people do not know about spiritual warfare, or they do not know how to engage in spiritual warfare. Yet, it is very important that we do understand it. Yeshua has given those who believe in Him the victory over the enemy if we are willing to stand up and fight. This teaching will be a template you can use as a prayer guide in your own spiritual warfare.
In this teaching we want to address "social justice." Micah 6:8 tells us, "He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" We see that God wants us to do justice, but is that the same as "social justice" that we hear about today?
We are quickly coming into the time of year when things begin to change. Although the weather tells us that it is definitely still summer, there are subtle changes in the air which signal something to come. It's a transitional period. Of course, the exact timing of these shifts may vary from year to year. However, one thing that remains annually consistent is the beginning of the Fall Feasts and the countdown to the Day of Atonement.
