How should we define biblical Israel? Shaul/Paul draws some distinctions between a physical and spiritual Israel, in order to demonstrate the necessity of an individual to belong to both, to be a fully regenerated Israelite.
On Passover, we reflect, carry out, and do as our Messiah Melchizedek (King and Priest) taught some 2000 years ago through the Last Supper and Passover (John 13-17).
What is leaven? As we approach Chag Ha’Matzot/Feast of Unleavened Bread, we are called to examine our house and remove the leaven. If our focus is more on cleaning baking products out of our cupboards than examining our lives and cleaning out the sin, we miss the gravitas of the feast. We need to remove the leaven of the old man and replace it with the leaven of Yahusha, The Bread of Life.
The Holy Spirit herself doth testify? We take a pause in our study of Romans to reflect on verses 16 and 17 in the eighth chapter to focus specifically on the Ruach Ha Kodesh/Holy Spirit. Join us as we test the traditional understandings of the nature of the Ruach/Spirit against the whole of Scripture and the truth of the text.
Which “law” do you prefer; the “law of sin and death” or “the law of the Spirit of Life”? As there is then, now, no condemnation for those who are in Messiah, we are free to walk as Abraham did, in Royal Covenant Torah. Only through Yahusha’s blood ratification, can we return to Torah that transforms our inward man, leading us to right action.
