 Manna from Heaven Ministries introduces Emet en la Torah Ministries:

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.

Restoration of the Kehuna – Manuel Chavarria

Posted by on Jul 19, 2014


“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 [כָּנָףkanáf] will bring salvation.

The transition in this text is extraordinary, due to the introduction of Torah [H8451תּוֹרָהToráh precept o statute, right, direction, legal teaching, law.] as a proposition which 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

*We apologize for the poorer quality mp3, due to the changed circumstances and limited finances we are still attempting to work out the technical difficulties with the resources we have.  Prayerfully and with your support, each week will improve!

Chukat 6-28-14


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.

Vital Ministry Update!

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014

Dear Friends, several events have transpired within the last few days that has Manna From Heaven Ministries reassessing our vision here in Salem, Oregon. Let me begin by saying we are as confident as ever that Abba sent us here. We believe the Pacific Northwest is and will become even more, a ‘gathering place’ for those who are looking for Him and His Torah. For almost two years our focus has been on the work we were jointly involved in at Hebrew Nation Radio and their local assembly, Restoration Fellowship. Though our work has been fruitful and we’ve enjoyed the relationship, it has left our own ministry (Manna) in a difficult place. We have not been able to adequately take care of the needs of the vision given us for Manna simply because of being spread quite thin between the obligation to HNR and Restoration Fellowship. As a result, our financial well being is tenuous at best. We have not been receiving a salary from either HNR or RF and because of the confusion over where or whom to donate to, we’ve depended solely on other resources for support. With little to nothing coming in via the HNR or RF offerings.

Naso 2014 by D. Mathews

Posted by on May 30, 2014

Naso – Elevate:

Numbers 4:21- 7:89.


 I.       The Parsha title ‘Naso’, #5375, נָשָׂא nasa’ is translated to lift up, elevate, exalt and is paired with the word head, #7218, רֹאשׁ ro’sh meaning head or chief. We can surmise that ‘elevating the head’ of Gershon is the hidden meaning rather than just counting his descendants. So, who is he and why would he need to be elevated? Let’s look: Also, we know there are 2 other brothers discussed, but, this Parsha begins with him as the Firstborn - Not an accident!

Bechukotai 2014


Bechukotai/”In my Statutes”, Leviticus 26:3 – 27:34 is the final portion of the book of Leviticus. It’s interesting that to close out this book, the final reminder is that if we’ll walk in His statutes, keep His commandments, then we’ll enjoy all the blessings that He has to offer and we’ll be a treasured people. Yet to fail to do this, would invoke the curses of the Covenant. Yet it seems that there’s still a disconnect because even with the return to Torah it seems as if something has hindered/stopped up the flow of blessings. Let’s look a little bit further and see what it means to walk in His statutes.

Kedoshim 2014 by B. Scott

 Kedoshim 2014

In this week’s Torah portion, Kedoshim/”Holy Ones” (Leviticus 19:1-20:27) we find the command to be holy, in fact it’s repeated three times!  In conjunction with this command, we find that this parshah contains more mitzvot regarding practical ethics than any other parshah in the Torah.  This is quite interesting because so often we attempt to keep the idea of holiness fuzzy, unclear, something we can’t define or attain to.  This way, no one is expected to walk “holy” because no one even knows what that means!  Yet this theory gets blown out of the water, because the Scriptures say the direct opposite, it’s not a suggestion but a command to be holy, and the idea of holiness deals with the way we interact with each other and how we live our daily lives.  Let’s look a little bit further to see exactly how we can be kedoshim – holy ones.
