Plagues of the Greater Exodus Pt. 6 || Pastor David Mathews

The 8th Plague – Locusts. Exodus 10: 3 – 20. I.        It is our position, after dissecting the 7-previous plagues, that YHVH has brought a Petition or Suit of Paternity against the House of Pharaoh and insisting that Israel, His first-born son be released. Against this background, in our text (vs. 3) above …

Shemot 2021 || Brittney Scott

Shemot/”Names”, Exodus 1:1-6:1, begins not only a new parshah, but also a new book of the Torah, with Shemot lending its name to the weekly parshah, as well as the entire book!  The book of Exodus covers the descent into slavery of Israel, the plagues that usher in their deliverance, and …

Word to the Wise || Brenda Mathews

A word to the wise (my granddaughter Olivia), “You get what you get, so don’t throw a fit.” Revelation 22:1 – “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life; clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.” Let’s look at 3 …

Plagues of the Greater Exodus Pt. 4 || Pastor David Mathews

Ex. 9:8-17. 6th plague – Boils with Blains: I.        Before we take an in-depth look at ‘Boils with Blains’, it would help to understand the circumstances that lead to this 6th plague.  Primarily, there’s a subtle transition-taking place in this text with this 6th plague. In our introduction we saw Aaron the High Priest initiate …

Toldot 2020 || Brittney Scott

Toldot/”Generations”, Genesis 25:19-28:9, is a Torah portion of transition!  The focus shifts from Abraham, to Isaac, the Son of Promise!  Of the 3 patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob), Isaac is given the least amount of attention, yet the opening statement of this passage is an enigmatic element seen throughout Genesis!  Could this be …

Lekh Lekha 2020 || Brittney Scott

Lekh Lekha/”Go Forth”, Genesis 12:1-17:27, but can more accurately be translated as go for yourself, or it is in your best interest and for your benefit that you go!  Quite interesting when we realize where it is from that Abram is being called forth, Ur of the Chaldees, aka Babylon!  This same …

Plagues of the Greater Exodus Pt. 2 || Pastor David Mathews

Ex. 8:22. I.        Our previous look at this topic began with an in-depth look into the 1st 3-Exodus plagues and the reason they fell upon both Israel and Egypt alike. It became painfully evident that Israel must have been in a backslidden condition and had gradually incorporated the pagan idolatrous practices …

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, …

Ki Tavo 2020 || Brittney Scott

Ki Tavo/”When You Go In”, Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8, comes as an interesting contrast on the heels of last week’s Ki Teitzei (“When you go out”)!  Where Ki Teitzei covers no less than 74 commandments (the most found in a single parshah), this week’s parshah focuses on only one main commandment topic – …

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 …
