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.

Noach 2014 by D. Mathews

Noach – 10/25/14

Genesis 6:9–11:32.

 I.       To begin, we must remember each Parsha is prophetic, bringing clarity to our day and the future, when properly understood. Therefore, since Yahshua Himself made reference to Noah’s Day in connection to His own return (Matt. 24: 37- 39) then perhaps we should take careful note of this Parshas’ prophecy concerning our future. (*Also see Is. 46: 10). Both this text in Matthew and our Parsha contrasts two distinct groups: Noah (and the 7 with him) and the wicked generation who refused to hear, thus, perverting its way. Matt. 24: 38 uses the pronoun ‘they’ to describe this last group who were …“eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the Ark”…

 For context’s sake, we will examine a few words here that are translated from Greek into English; however, their renderings give little understanding and in fact, detract from the severity of their actions which are more vividly described in the Hebrew language. Let’s examine a few words in Matt. 24: 38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Seneh by Manual & Ada Chavarria

 HA SENEH

Every time the privilege to live according to the eternal truth of Elohim is given to the people of Yisrael and has deliberately rejected it, by general rule is sent to exile in the midst of other nations that do not know יהוה.

The parasha of this week corresponds to Ha Azinu (listen); it consists of 70 lines of the song of Moshe to the people of Yisrael during his last days with them. It is interesting that the message corresponds with the ending of an event such as the departing of the one carrying the Torah; although evidently it corresponds to only one period of transition to which Moshe introduces with the phrase Ha Azinu הַאֲזִינוְּהַשָּׁמַיִם

 

“Listen, o heavens [הַאֲזִינוְּהַשָּׁמַיִם], and let me speak [דָּבַרdabar]; let earth hear the words of my mouth.

Let my teaching fall on you like rain”

Debarim 32:1-2

Nitzavim 2014 by B. Scott

Nitzavim – Vayelech 2014

 Nitzavim/”Standing”, covering Deuteronomy 29:10-30:20, is paired with Vayelech/”And He Went” covering Deuteronomy 31:1-30. This is the parshah where the actual Covenant cutting ceremony is taking place with the generation that’s about to enter into the Promised Land. It’s a very powerful passage that completely eradicates any excuses for failing to keep the covenant and commandments. A lot of times, we’ve attempted to paint them as too hard, or we hide behind a persona of being super spiritual and above anyone else’s judgment, yet this parshah serves to put these things back into perspective! They are not too hard, they’re not too difficult, in fact it’s the direct opposite, they are within our reach to do them, why? Because it’s a matter of the heart! Deuteronomy 30:14 – “But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.”

Deuteronomy 29:10-13

Stand: Strong’s #5324 natsab נָצַב to stand, to take one’s stand, stand upright, be set over, or to establish; cognate of #5326 nitsbah נִצְבָּה firmness, strength, toughness, refers to the ability of something to hold together or to perform difficult tasks; seems quite comical that the very thing that’s supposed to cause us to have the ability to hold together, to perform difficult tasks together (the Covenant), has been the very thing that the majority of us have argued and divided over! It seems that we’ve missed the point – we’re being given this Covenant because it is the very thing that will hold us together in the midst of trials and under pressure!

Ki Tavo 2014 by D. Mathews

Posted by on Sep 22, 2014

Ki Tavo:

When you enter in.

Deuteronomy 26:1–29:9.

 I.     When we reflect upon the peculiar timing of every Parsha, and in particular this one, the enormity of its impact begins to take shape. For instance: This is the 50th parsha of the year (50 is written with the Hebrew letter Nun – meaning ‘life’ and is the number associated with the Yovel) and thus a unique relationship exists between words with the value of 50 and this admonition concerning entering into the land – אָרֶץהָ. One of those words is #127, אֲדָמָה ‘adamah, translated ground, earth or land. It would seem a pattern is being revealed. Adam-Israel is taken out of the ground – Adamah and becomes estranged from YHVH who implements the Redemption Plan that will restore them and will allow them to “enter in” Ki Tavo! Yet they must endure the wilderness – the process which destroys the flesh. Ironically, if you subtract the value of Adamah (50) from ha-Eretz (296) you’re left with 246, the value of the word Midbar – Wilderness. The very place used to purge Israel! In addition, it occurs in the midst of the month of Elul, #435, אֱלוּל ‘Eluwl, which is traditionally, the month associated with the constellational sign of Bethulah or Virgo – the Virgin Bride and is designed to purge her prior to her entering into the Sukkah! This purging seems to indicate more than just a spiritual change and hints at a DNA change as well which can be seen in the etymology of Elul (‘nothingness – vain’) where the Alef indicates a future tense ‘I will’ and the root – Lamed-Vav-Lamed, lul, #3883, hints at an architectural term indicating a spiral staircase! Is it possible that during the month of Elul YHVH is repairing the DNA of His Bride the Adulteress, who is changed into the Virgin? Could this also point to Jacobs’ ladder or DNA helix? We know the DNA of Yahweh is His Word or Seed. When that word enters us we are changed.

Ki Teitzei 2014

 Ki Teitzei/”When You Go Out”, Deuteronomy 21:10 – 25:19, seems from the surface to be a jumbled parshah! It’s hard to see one concise thought because of all of the Torah parshahs, this one contains the most commandments listed over all the others, no less than 74 of the 613 are found right here, all covering a wide variety of topics. With this being the case, it’s important then to connect the fact that these commandments are terms of the Covenant. This then is a very important part of the legal document. Yet the opening commands deal with the laws of the beautiful captive, something that hardly seems to apply to everyone, yet by looking a little closer we find that Israel is actually being given an example in the physical that is telling their own story/redemption plan! Just as these laws are laid out concerning how this woman is to be treated legally, so those same laws dictate how you and I will be handled and our rights in this Covenant!

Shoftim 2014 by D. Mathews

Shoftim – Judges 8/30/14

Deuteronomy 16:18–21:9.

I.       The title of this week’s Parsha, ‘Shoftim’ is one of the most misinterpreted of all Torah portions simply because of the anathema associated with the idea of a Theocratic form of government. In this age of Democracy (Majority ruling) it seems the will of the ‘People’ supersedes that of YHVH. [Sic] Our efforts will prayerfully explode the supposed validity of Democracy versus Theocracy and reveal the truth. Unleash the hounds!

  • Shoftim, #8199, שָׁפַט shaphat, (sing. form) to judge, govern, vindicate. It encompasses all three areas of government: Executive, legislative and judicial. Some would argue: “What link does modern government have to Torah as the basis for judging”? Point of fact, Biblical law (The Law of YHVH) is the basis for our entire legal system. However, this ‘law’ represents a literal person – making adherence or not – a relationship issue! Let’s dig a bit further in the Hebrew title:

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!
