Introducing Emet en la Torah Ministries

 Manna from Heaven Ministries introduces Emet en la Torah Ministries:

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.

Re’eh 2014 by B. Scott

 Re’eh 2014

 Re’eh/’See”, covering Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17 begins with a dramatic statement that can basically sum up the entire Book – it is summed up in the statement that Yahweh has set before us a blessing and a curse. This would seem to be a very simple choice, blessings being the correct choice accessed through obedience and the curses something we would avoid. Yet the Torah is filled with example after example of this seemingly easy concept being ignored and the people of Yahweh invoking the curses upon themselves! It causes us to ask ourselves the question are we really just that foolish and bent towards destruction, or have we defined incorrectly what it means to be disobedient and what it means to be obedient? Let’s find out!

Va’etchanan 2014 by D. Mathews

Va’Etchanan 8-9-14

And I Pleaded:

Deuteronomy 3:23–7:11.

I.     The title phrase, ‘And I Pleaded’ (following English grammar rules) leads us to believe that it is Moshe speaking here. However, a veiled reference to someone else is seen in the Hebrew: Va [and] Et [אֶתְ] pleaded, #2603,חָנַן chanan, to be favored, to show favor, to implore favor. It is from the root Chet-Nun, Chen which means grace (one who is favored because of obedience) and the Nun, meaning life. It would seem that Moshe is being introduced ‘spiritually’ to the One who he represents in the natural and who would replace him – Joshua – Yahshua! It would also seem that Moshe understands that it is for Israel’s sake that he cannot go over Jordan and thus, must die; (Deut. 3: 26…But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes…) Again, a shadow picture of Yahshua. This is confirmed when he’s directed to ascend to the top of Mt. Pisgah. Let’s examine this word:

Devarim 2014 – B. Scott

Posted by on Aug 4, 2014

Devarim 2014

 

Devarim/”Words”, Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22 is quite an exciting portion because it’s the starting point of the final book of the Torah! It is slightly different from the previous parshahs because we find that most of this book is a repetition of previous given commandments, or a reminder of previous events that Israel has experienced on this exodus journey. It acts as the final prep talk before the generation that’s been raised up in the wilderness actually takes the Land – our inheritance. We understand that this is a pattern for you and I today! A blueprint begins to immerge that also instructs us of the necessary steps to restore our inheritance.

*In Deuteronomy 2:14, we’re told that after 38 years of wandering, the rebellious generation is finally cut off and fully dealt with. This becomes the launching point now for Israel to be able to enter in the Promised Land, yet the first step they’re instructed to take is to go to war with the Amorite King Sihon. Could it be that perhaps once again, if we’re to once again have access to our inheritance, that it will require the rebellion to be dealt with in our own lives, homes, and the body as a whole?

 

Deuteronomy 2:14-15

War: Strong’s #4421 milchamah מִלְחָמָה war, battle; from #3898 lacham לָחַם to fight, do battle, make war, or bread, to eat; in other words, the ones who were cut off, were those that made war/chose to do battle against the lechem/bread – Word!

*The root malach מָלַח is a play on words with the term melech ֶלֶךְמ king; attached

to this root is the term “mah” מה what – “What King?”, the actions of the generation that is cut off in the wilderness literally declared “What King?” because they chose to reject His Lechem! This is interesting when put into context, when cutting ancient Covenants one of the final steps was to share a meal together so that each party could show their participation in the treaty. Could it be that if we choose to neglect partaking of His Lechem/Word, that we too declare “what King?” and show our rejection of the Covenant?

Wasted Out: Strong’s #8552 tamam תָּמַם to be complete, to be finished, to be at an end, but it also has the sense of to perfect something, to deal in integrity, to act uprightly, and it can be used to signify the completing of a building project; when the rebellion is cut off, then the house is finished, complete, perfected! Now we can operate in integrity and walk uprightly!

Destroy: Strong’s #2000 hamam הָמַם to move noisily, to confuse, to make a noise, to trouble and vex, to put something into motion, to impel or to drive; from the root #1993

hamah הָמָֽה to murmur, to roar, make noise, be clamorous; this is the root our English term “hum” – the noise attributed to bees! Bee in Hebrew is debowrah דבורה – the root is Dabar/Promised Word!

Massei 2014 – D. Mathews

Massei – Stages/Journeys: 7/26/14

Numbers 33:1–36:13.

 I.       This Parsha begins with an enumeration of the stages or stops made by Israel on their journey from Egypt. Though the ultimate destination is the Land of Promise, this Parsha is more about the journey ‘away from Egypt’ than ‘toward the Land’. I.E. their spiritual progress as Egypt is removed from them. Let’s begin our study with the title of the Portion taken from verse 1: Journeys or Massei, remembering that each week is a blueprint instructing us during our own journey of separation from spiritual Egypt.

  • Journeys, #4550, מַסָּע macca`, though simply translated ‘journey’, this same word indicates a stone quarry, a place where stones for building are located, cut, measured, dressed and removed to the building site. These stages are a beginning – the “House of Israel” is being built. It shouldn’t be hard to see the connection to the ‘Spiritual House’ and the preparation for building when relocated in the Promised Land. [1Pet. 2: 5 …lively stones]

Restoring the Kehunnah – Manuel & Ada Chavarria

Posted by on Aug 4, 2014

RESTORATION OF THE KEHUNAH

“Remember la Toráh of my servant Mosheh, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Yisrael.

Mal 4:4

The preamble to this text in the scriptures is the description of Yom יהוה, that terrible day on which HE will appear in boiling fire bringing judgment to the nations and consuming the nations’ iniquity, his recommendation is in first instance to bring reverence to his eternal name over the ones the sun of justice will bring his splendor [heb. Shemesh tzedakah], because in his wings [כָּנָף kanáf] will bring salvation.

The transition in this text is extraordinary, due to the introduction of Torah [H8451 Toráh precept o statute, right, direction, legal teaching, law.] as a proposition which תּוֹרָה would benefit it’s partakers; remember or make memory of the instructions that I have given to you through my servant Mosheh, is the same line of thinking that the we observe in EX 21:1 when this Torah is exposed before he people. A complement to the proposition of observing the teachings of יהוה the imperative need to keep it as an ordinance immediately by which we do not only see the teaching of יהוה as an optional element to be kept, but instead it immediately acquires the characterization of inescapable

 

 

Repentance is not really possible unless we can clearly distinguish between good and evil and for such effect it is evident the need of a parameter that identifies between the just and the unjust.

The literal translation of the word (

H7725 שׁוּב shub; Prim root; to return, the concept here is primarily important as it is urging us to go back to the foundation that defines

sin, foundation that exposes us in order to make us understand the difference between just and unjust, this will lead us to conduct ourselves with a different mentality, the concept of repentance implies a change of mentality, consequently with a change in conduct as a result of the knowledge of the base to which repentance wants to take us to.

All the ends of the earth will remember [H2142 זָכַר zakár; where I will make my remembrance be] and will turn [H7725 שׁוּב shub; prim. Root.; to return] to יהוה; all the families of the nations will bow down before his presence.

Psalm/Tehilim 22:27

The righteous judgments of Abba, have been made known by his decrees through Torah; in it we find the mishpatim; [of 8199; prop. verdict (favorable or unfavorable) judicially pronouncing, sentence or formal decree (human or of divine law, to condemn, judgment)] as the ordinances that were established by יהוה, on which the judgment over the people i founded, therefore the urgent need to return to them to know the base by which we shall conduct ourselves.

We will establish as a premise that Yisrael corresponds to that group of people that independently of their geographical position are willing to do the will of their king; from the

Teshuva; תשובה) is (to respond) as a response of the soul to

the call of redemption and to get rid of the root of sin through a true repentance. Another

meaning commonly given to it is conversion, by which to return and to convert end up being the

same and are bound together. From the Hebrew verb

Ordinances

Numbers 19:1–22:1.

 I.       This Parsha begins with the Parah Dumah or Red Heifer sacrifice and is considered by the Sages as the most paradoxical of all the sacrifices mentioned in Torah. Talmudic tradition mentions it as the only 1 of the 613 mitzvot that could not be understood by Solomon and thus makes no rational sense. The ritual slaughter followed by its burning would be comingled with hyssop, scarlet yarn and a cedar stick thrown upon it. The resulting ashes would then be used to purge those who would be contaminated by contact with death. According to tradition these instructions were initially given to Moshe in the 2nd year of the Exodus, on Nisan 1, the day the Tabernacle was first erected, but appear at this juncture because of the need to purify the people after the death of Miriam in the following chapter. This would make the chronology weird at best! It would seem more in keeping with its purpose by following the Parsha of last week and the need to purge the camp after the rebellion of Korah and the death of those associated with him. We will begin by looking for clues to understanding that are not visible to the casual eye.

Korach 2014 by B. Scott

Korach 2014

 Korach/”Korah”, Numbers 16:1-18:32 is one of those interesting portions where we’re given a glimpse into the inner workings of the Israelites on their journey. It becomes evident that their interactions with each other affected their relationship with Yahweh and the safety of the entire camp. With the understanding that this is a blueprint for you and I, it becomes a relevant question to ask what are the lessons we’re meant to learn from Korah, what places us in this category lest the same consequences visit our doorsteps as well? To be honest, it is easy to point fingers and label individuals in this manner who have offended us, yet do we really understand the implications and the ripple affects of rebellion in the camp? Ezekiel 20:38 – “And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am Yahweh.”

Shelach L’cha – 6/14/14

Send for Yourself:

Numbers 13:1–15:41.

 I.       This Parsha begins with an innocuous Hebrew word that has a wide variety of meanings: Translated ‘Send’ in English, the depths of the Hebrew language allow us to see a bit more of the “Mind” of YHVH. Let’s look.

Send, #7971, שָׁלַח shalach, to send, to let loose, to be divorced. In a figurative sense, to be unrestrained. It also carries the weight of a technical term to indicate issuing a Royal decree or command. It has a numeric value of 338, which will aid us in grasping the nuanced, hidden meaning by looking at other words with the same value.
