VaYetze 2022 || Pastor David Mathews

Genesis 28:10–32:3. I.       We’ve personally looked exhaustively at this Parsha for two decades and each time we find a pulsating, living word beneath the Hebraic text that prophesies of our day, while also giving as a glimpse of what our future will look like through the lens of this enthralling Torah …

Toldot 2022 || Brittney Scott

Toldot/”Generations”, Genesis 25:19-28:9, serves as a transition from Abraham to Isaac, and then on to Jacob.  It is interesting to note that this parshah starts with the interesting code phrase “elleh toldot”, translated as “these are the generations”, the 8th of 10 of these statements found structuring the scroll of Genesis!  We find …

I Have A Song || Brenda Mathews

The past week most Christians were consumed with the state and national elections and how to take back the control of the nation.  Sadly, everyone expecting an answer by voting missed the hidden answer that Torah has for us.  It starts at home.  You can’t change a nation whose families are not blessed, …

V’Yera 2022 || Pastor David Mathews

Genesis 18:1–22:24. I.       This week’s Parsha is filled with intrigue and fascination as we uncover a deliberate conspiratorial plot surrounding the major events harmlessly found hidden and sterilized among the troves of the pertinent KJV Christian texts. Sadly, amidst Jewish rabbinic folklore the deceit is just as prevalent, perhaps even more …

Lekh Lekha 2022 || Brittney Scott

Lekh-Lekha/”When You Go Forth”, Genesis 12:1-17:27, begins with Abram’s call to come out of the land of the Chaldees/Haran (aka Babylon) to the land that Yahweh would show him.  This same call is echoed in Revelation 18:4 – “…Come out of her my people…”  Abram’s journey then seems to set the example and precedent …

B’Reshiyt 2022 || Pastor David Mathews

B’reshiyt – In The Beginning: Gen. 1:1-6:8. I.        This study begins a new Torah cycle and is titled: בראשית, B’reshiyt. Though traditionally rendered ‘In the Beginning’, the Hebrew language is nuanced with multiple layers of hidden revelation. As with every Parsha, I am convinced this one is pertinent to the current timeline. If …

Vayelech 2022 || Brittney Scott

VaYelech/”And He Went”, Deuteronomy 31:1-30, one short chapter (often paired with Nitzavim), always strategically occurring in the midst of the Fall festivals season!  Currently we are in the midst of the 10 days of awe, leading up to Yom Kippur.  Does this chapter perhaps reveal the significance of the season we find …

Nitzavim 2022 || Pastor David Mathews

Nitzavim – 9/24/22 The Ones Standing: Deuteronomy 29:10–30:20. I.       The message of this Parsha has traditionally been one focused on the generation whose parents had died off during the 40-year wilderness excursion. As their survivors are gathered prior to crossing Jordan, Moshe reminds them of the Covenant embraced by their Fathers …

Ki Teitzei 2022 || Brittney Scott

Ki Teitzei/”When You Go Out”, Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19, is quite a unique and interesting parshah.  It contains no less than 74 different commandments, the most of all the Torah portions!  This is the civil law of Israel, laws that deal specifically with how we are to interact with one another, which should be …

Shoftim 2022 || Pastor David Mathews

Deuteronomy 16:18–21:9. I.       Traditionally, each Parsha is divided into 7 ‘readings’. This specific Torah portion is unique in that it outlines the model for a National Constitution and the implementation of Judges and officers of the court. In doing so, it also establishes specific rules of conduct for those Judges, Levites, …

Eikev 2022 || Brittney Scott

Eikev/”On the Heel of” (“Because”), Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25, continues on in Mosheh’s final speech to the children of Israel.  Over and over again we find emphasized that Israel accessing and entering the land of their inheritance is a covenant promise from Yahweh!  This entire passage speaks directly to the importance of one’s faith!  Translators …
