Plagues of the Greater Exodus || Pastor David Mathews

The Plagues of the Greater Exodus. I.        If one researches the patterns found within Torah revealing the methods used by the Creator in delivering Israel from Egypt (Ex. 7-11) it naturally follows, since YHVH does not change (Mal. 3: 6, Heb. 13: 8) that if a future “Greater Exodus” is to occur, …

Shoftim 2020 || David Mathews

Deuteronomy 16:18–21:9. I.       Before indulging ourselves in the wealth of revelation contained within this Parsha, it would bode well for us to examine the Hebrew word that is our title: ‘Shoftim’, which is the plural form of H#8199, טשׁפּ, Shaphat, indicating ‘to judge, govern, punish or vindicate.  The primary idea of the root …

Va’etchanan 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

Deuteronomy 3:23–7:11. I.       The scene being portrayed in front of us is rather poignant! We see Moshe revealing the details of his personal plea with YHVH to allow him entrance into the land of Canaan. Though we understand the natural elements leading to this divine encounter there are far more spiritual …

Covenant of Peace || Pastor David Mathews

Numbers 25:1 – 13 I.       This week’s Parsha is entitled ‘Balak’ yet ends with the mystery surrounding Phinehas and as a result, the title of our teaching – The Covenant of Peace. This is a continuation of sorts from our last teaching ‘The Price of Unity’ where we briefly touched the …

Price of Unity || Pastor David Mathews

The Price of UNITY: 6/13/20 Ezekiel 37: 1-28. I.        It becomes apparent when studying Torah that a mirror-like dimensional portal exists between the Physical world and the Spiritual. As such, there is seemingly, a time lap between the two that exists simply because we cannot see into the latter realm. However, …

Counting the Omer 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

Sefirat HaOmer – Lev. 23: 15-16. I.        I found it interesting that the Parsha for this week is entitled, ‘Emor’, H#559, אמר, a cognate word with our subject – Omer, H#6016, עמר, both bearing the 2-letter root stem, Mem-Resh and having silent vowels as their beginning. The symbolism is intriguing to say the least! Oddly enough, the …

Shemini 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

Leviticus 9:1–11:47 I.       Shemeni – is the 2nd of the Parsha in Leviticus – Vayiqra – וַיִּקְרָא, which is itself, an intriguing word. It’s root being from H#7121, קרא, indicating to call or summons, to proclaim, read or declare, to collect or harvest! Its numeric value 301 is the same as the Hebrew word for fire, …

Vayachel & Pekudei 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

VaYachel/Pekudei – 3/21/20 Ex. 35:1 – 40:38. I.        This is the 1st double-Parsha of this year and the last in the 5-parsha series describing the Mishkan – Tabernacle. Let me remind you the Tabernacle was designed in the form of ‘A Man’ – that man was Adam-Messiah. Consequently, Israel collectively, represented the …

Mishpatim 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

Exodus 21:1–24:18. משפטים I.       A renowned Jewish Midrash on this parsha says that YHVH offered Torah first to each of the 70 nations, to which, they declined, citing a ‘need to know first’. Furthermore, after hearing the commandments, each had an excuse for not accepting. Israel however was said to have …

B’Shalach 2020 || Pastor David Mathews

Exodus 13:17–17:16 When he let go… I.       Today’s Parsha title, בשלח, B’shalach, seems anti-climatic based on the previous chapters dealing with the confrontation with Pharaoh and subsequent plagues. Thus, the title seems innocuous being simply translated ‘When he let go’, as in when Pharaoh made his decision. However, remembering that Pharaoh is …
