Welcome

Posted by on Oct 28, 2012

As a Messianic congregation, having also an upbringing in the western church community, we want to welcome those visitors to our website who may also be currently members of either the gentile church or the orthodox assembly. To those who are new, we will be using the Hebrew names of both the Father (YHVH -Yahweh) and Messiah (Yahshua), rather than the more common titles of, lord, god, or Ha-Shem (The Name), or, the Greek rendering of, “Jesus”, as well as, the hybrid name of JeHoVaH.

The use of the more accurate Hebrew names is not meant to cause confusion or division among those seeking the Truth, but, our attempt to be as scripturally accurate as possible.

Manna From Heaven Ministries was founded on September 15, 1999. We are a Messianic congregation in keeping with the example of the early church as defined in the New Testament. Along with a balance of Integrity, Maturity, and Discipline, we pursue the attributes and character of YHVH that His Word mandates for the Set-Apart ones.

We would hope that our common desire for relationship with the Father and our love of Torah (The Word) will be sufficient to enable those who disagree regarding the use of His Name, to overlook that point of issue, and strive to search the Scriptures to see if what we are teaching is indeed, Truth.

We have a multi-racial congregation that welcomes anyone wishing for an exciting, exuberant relationship with Messiah. Our objective is to offer to the community a fellowship motivated by the Love of Yahshua, to minister the full counsel of His Word.

It is that mission alone that will minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the Bride preparing for these last days.

Countdown to Shavuot by D. Mathews

Posted by on Apr 18, 2014

Countdown to Shavuot:

Lev. 23: 10 – 22.

I.       The language here seems to indicate the Festival following Pesach – Shavuot or Pentecost – was to be celebrated in the Promised Land or Canaan after the initiation of the Holy Convocation at Sinai. However, we know it took Israel 40 years to get to their destination when in fact; it should have only taken 11-days (Deut. 1:1, 2). [We’ll look here a bit later]

Counting the Omer by B. Scott

Counting the Omer 2014

Usually much time is spent discussing the shadow pictures and importance of Passover, the meaning of getting the leaven out of our homes for the week of Unleavened Bread, and how this all deals with our redemption, but as this week comes to a close we’re faced with another puzzle piece, the commandment to count the days (count the omer) until we reach Shavuot, the final Spring Feast.  It is easy to rush to Shavuot and look ahead, but why must we count the days?  Is it merely to know when the next festival is, or is there more to this commandment?  It’s important to note that Shavuot is the only festival connected with this command, all others in Leviticus 23 have their specific dates stated, yet nowhere in the Scriptures are we given a date for Shavuot, only the clue that it comes 50 days later.

Mysteries of the Passover by D. Mathews

Mysteries of the Passover!

Ex. 12: 11

I.       Because of the limited understanding afforded us by the English language we’ve missed many of the wonderful Truths revealed in the Hebrew tongue – The Lashon haQodesh! The Holy Tongue! These hidden nuggets allow us to connect the dots from the Beginning – B’reshit, to the End – Revelation and as our understanding grows, so does our ability to walk these truths out and demonstrate the power inherent in His Torah. This is most apparent as we encounter the Holy Convocations known as ‘The Spring Festivals’ – Principally, Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, followed by Shavuot and the real message(s) of Redemption found in each: Let’s look at what we’ve presumed to be the beginning of the instructions concerning this first and best known festival – Pesach:

Ex. 12: 11. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S Passover.

Passover 2014 by B. Scott

Passover 2014

Passover/Pesach is the first spring feast and the first festival of the year!  It is a divine appointment that affects our past, present, and future.  It is the feast that tells the story and lays the groundwork of how and why we can be redeemed from bondage and death due to the sacrifice of the lamb – if his blood is on our doorposts.  The Passover in Egypt was a foreshadowing of the lamb of Yah – the Messiah – who would come fulfilling every detail in order to redeem you and I.  Yet, Passover also seems to be the timeframe marking a distinction and divide being made between two camps (prime example between Egypt and Israel – one of many splits in connection with this Feast).  In Exodus 12:14 concerning this feast day – “ And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to Yahweh throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”  This becomes our question today, how do we keep it and what do we have to do to make sure we’re in the right camp?

Tazria 2014 by B. Scott

Tazria 2014

Tazria/”She Conceives”, Leviticus 12:1-13:59, can be quite a controversial parshah!  It covers laws of ritual impurity that are difficult to relate to us today, outside of a community whose function revolves around a physical Temple or a community setting that is based on these laws or ritual purity.  Not only are these concepts foreign, but the 2 distinct subjects are connected in this portion, both which mark you as unclean, yet seem at first glance completely unrelated – childbirth and leprosy!  The details without a proper understanding only add to our confusion, yet this is included in our Covenant, these are terms given to us that govern our relationship with Yahweh.  Could it be that there’s more than meets the eye concerning these laws?

Tazria – Leprosy: 3/28/14

Leviticus 12:1–13:59

I.       Our Parsha title ‘Tazria’ has been historically, convoluted. Attempting to confine its meaning to the English definition of leprosy alone is myopic at best. Though the portion deals with the skin condition referred to as leprosy, it also contains the laws of ‘tumah v’taharah’, ritual impurity and purity associated with a woman giving birth, in addition to the plague of tzaraat which affects clothing and buildings alike. Let’s begin to dissect the Body of Torah to see what is here:

VaYiqra 2014 by D. Mathews

Posted by on Mar 10, 2014

VaYiqra: 3-7-14. Pt. 1.

Leviticus 1:1–6:7.

I.       This Parsha is translated ‘And He Called’ – וַיִּקְרָא. This sets into motion one of, if not the, most avoided books in Torah, simply because of its’ general theme: a ritualistic overview of a bloody sacrificial system and its’ officiates – the Levites or Priests and those supplicants (Israel) who would approach the Tabernacle. In fact, the Greek translation ‘Leuitikos’, means “relating to the Levites”. As we attempt to decipher the hidden secrets of this book the numbers become our first tool:

Pekudei 2014 by B. Scott

Pekudei 2014

Pekudei/”Accounting Of”, Exodus 38:21-40:38 is the last portion of the book of Exodus and the final portion dealing with the construction process of the Mishkan!  It is the “accounting of” the materials before the much anticipated assembling of the Tabernacle and the launching of the Tabernacle duties.  Yet this type of structure and relationship with Yahweh is something that is quite foreign to the majority of believers today.  For quite some time we’ve developed the mindset that we can act any way we want in His house and also our own bodies (this personal vessel that becomes a mini tabernacle) can be in any state of sin and disobedience and yet He’ll still dwell there.  It would seem then, that in order to renew our minds concerning this and begin to cultivate an understanding of the proper way to handle Yahweh in preparation for this restoration at the end of days, it is imperative for us to look at the pattern of the tabernacle and understand the purpose behind this pattern!

Pekudei 2014 by D. Mathews

Pekudei 2-28-14.

Exodus 38:21–40:38

I.       The title of this Parsha is couched in the phrase, “this is the sum, (#6485, פָּקַד paqad, to attend to, look after, observe, to seek, to be passed in review, to number) of the Tabernacle”. Though most scholars translate this phrase as relating to the inventory of the Tabernacle materials, the Hebrew word paqad has a broader definition which can also imply to ‘search out’ and is used in words that indicate supervision, precept and instruction. [Prov. 25:2] The root letters Qof-Dalet form several Modern Hebrew words related to code or encoding. The letter Pey – the Mouth tells where this code originates: In fact, the same verse reveals a connection to the Commandment or Pey-Mouth of Moshe as the place of origin to begin to search out or ‘paqad’ the Tabernacle code! Is there in fact, things coded or hidden within the materials list and furnishings of, the Tabernacle? It’s almost as if YHVH is tantalizing us with a code-breaking challenge! Where do we begin? Honestly, most folks think it is beyond them – too hard. However, this is addressed in Deut. 30: 11-14. In fact, we’re told it is very nigh, (#7138, קָרוֹב qarowb – #3966, מְאֹד m@`od. Qarowb means to approach intimately, whether in friendship or battle, while ma’od indicates with force or might) even in our mouths and heart. The gematria of qarowb = 308, the same as the Hebrew word for shame – buwsh, while the gematria of me’od is 45, the same as ADAM who was made ashamed by not properly handling the word. Remember 2Tim. 2: 15?
