Join us at The Passover of Our Master

The original Passover brought a nation out of Egypt, only to fall short and break the covenant with The Living Elohim. This event was and is a foreshadowing of the plan Yahuwah{God} has to restore his people to himself. The Messiah was born of a virgin for fulfilling the very purpose of becoming the actual Passover lamb that would hang on a tree for our trespasses. On Passover, we will reflect, carry out, and do as our Messiah King and Priest taught some 2000 years ago through the Last Supper and Passover (John 13-17).

[John 13:4-7] “Yahusha{Jesus} got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him. When Yahusha{Jesus} came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Yahusha{Jesus} replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”

Reflecting on these verses do you hear or feel a resound in your hearts? We have read these scriptures many times, but as we gather here today, this verse resounds with so much more meaning than when we first heard it.

Further Yahusha{Jesus} explicitly asks and provides an example of our service to one another as well as something we are to do as we commemorate his Death, Burial, and Resurrection for the forgiveness of sin.

[John 13:12-17] “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Master, and you say well, for I am. Then if I, Master and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than he who sent him. If you know these teachings, blessed are you if you do them.”

John chapters 13, 14, and 15 speaks with great clarity the importance of obedience by faith, in fact our Messiah uses various words in over 16 locations. Yahusha{Jesus} pleads with us (His bride) to obey His commands as His friends; “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”— John 14:15

Then we see a change in the disciples status in John 15.[John 15:15-16] (Yahusha{Jesus} Speaks,) “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, for all teachings which I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and ordained you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He might give you.

On Passover, we remember the Exodus out of Egypt but look to The Passover of the Master where Yahusha{Jesus} gave his final instructions to His disciples before shedding His blood for the remissions of sins (The New Covenant). Leading to His resurrection being brought up as first fruits (1 Corinthians 15:23). We enter into and partake of this honor and display our obedience to his command to Love one another.

Join us on Passover in remembrance when He asked us as friends, His bride, to be brought into the Melchizedek Covenant Relationship (restored priesthood) with our King and High Priest Yahusha the Messiah.

Growing Patience

Who would believe that Yahuwah could use a recipe for a Passover bread starter as the catalyst for my growth? It never occurred to me…until it did. I am a retired Nana, living with my brother Rocky, in a small Texas town about a mile from the Gulf of Mexico. My journey began when I was recently given the task of finding sourdough bread recipes for … Read More

Confronting The Past

This is my first Passover as a willing exile from the Christian church. To prepare for this exciting and sobering milestone in my walk with YHWH, I’ve been carefully examining my life and asking the Ruach Hakodesh to show me hidden sin. My prayers were answered while watching one of Matthew’s older teachings from 2014 on generational iniquity, DNA,Read More

Upon concluding their Passover observance, the Israelites begin their exodus out of Egypt, which brings them to the base of Mount Sinai on the 15th of the 3rd month (Exodus 19:1; Numbers 33:3). After consecrating themselves, there is a gathering on the 3rd day of all the people — the great assembly (Exodus 19:16). With YHWH’s display of miraculous signs and wonders, they stand trembling and in awe. They are on the precipice of receiving YHWH’s 400-year-old promise to Abraham (Gen 12:1-3). Without fail… Read More

Kosher Korner

You’re probably already aware of terms such as Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) and Monosodium Glutamate (MSG). But have you heard of Memphis Meats?  Well, after you read this, you’ll understand why what we eat is so important to YHWH.

Hebrew is an extraordinary language. Some scholars believe it was the language Yahuwah used when he spoke the universe into existence and was also the language confounded at Babel (Gen 11:1-9). Knowing the end from the beginning, it is likely Yahusha will restore Hebrew as the universal language when he returns to rule and reign. In this study, we will learn about each letter of the Hebrew language using Early (Ancient Semitic/Otiot), Middle (Paleo) and Modern scripts. The modern Hebrew is widely used… Read More

Mike Hoffman was climbing the corporate ladder, working a lot of hours, and making a ton of money when Yahuwah took hold of his heart. In 2012 he heard the call and decided to step off the ladder and launch into the deep.

He stopped doing Christmas and began to keep the Sabbath. With some money in the bank, Mike took off from work in 2013 so he and his wife Angelah could focus on studying the Word. Read More

I haven’t really been comfortable with the Church since I was a child. From my point of view, it always seemed full of idolatry, error (Sun-day Sabbath), and unyielding, un-Biblical doctrines such as the Trinity. These all serve to color יהוה’s Word.

As far as the Hebrew Roots/Messianic movement, I find it puzzling: too enamored with all things Judaism; following rabbinical traditions under the wrong assumption that those who rejected Yahusha (with bloodlust) could provide perspective regarding Moshiach or his Abba. Read More
