Each Shabbat overall view is shared by active members of our community. It will give you a glimpse into our fellowship with Adonai in instruction, encouragement, direction and reprove through the truth of our character; that which is pure and aligned with Him or that which may be lacking in righteousness.
I hope these quick glimpses into our time of fellowship will create in you a desire for a deeper relationship with YHVH.
If you do not currently have a place of worship, we pray that you will seek the Lord’s guidance and counsel to find a community of believers that will teach you and encourage you to live a sanctified life in Y’shua. You are also welcomed to join us as the Lord convicts your heart. ~Graciously Given, Pastor Stone
Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom all things come and for whom we exist; and one Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, through whom were created all things and through whom we have our being. 1 Corinthians 8:6
All scripture harmonizes and can be relied upon because of the One it points back to, the Author, Adonai Tzva’ot. We must be awake and aware in the arena Adonai has called us to. We must be seekers of shalom and active participants in the Body of Christ doing only Adonai’s will as in Romans 14:19. He desires His people to be one. Therefore, we must turn our focus from self to the BOC. Do not become like the goat who doesn’t do well with others and is selfish. Heed the warnings of the Lord and don’t refrain or delay in giving the Lord the worship that belongs only to Him. If we choose not to worship Him, we will face the judgement of YHVH. If we don’t worship Him, we are serving Ba’al; an idol, Satan, a demon that offers only false promises (that which is not real cannot offer anything).
The Lord’s Name is a standard of holiness. He is the One! We must get rid of everything that is unholy and self-consuming. Don’t be one who looks back like Lot’s wife (Gen 19.17,26) but allow the Lord to carry us and bring us back to what He made us to be. He is the covenant keeper of permanence and preservation. ~ Mariah Peters
When one exhibits selfishness and isolation from the community of believers, they take on the character of a goat which is to dwell alone in the desert. This destroys unity in the Body of Christ. However, Adonai’s design for the Body of Christ is that we build each other up and seek shalom with each other.
Adonai, also reminded us in Eph. 6:12, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against demonic principalities and warned not to impede on His worship. Adonai showed us that the spirit in operation, when we do not submit in worship, is the Baal spirit, that attempts to cause believers to apostatize and separate from YHVH.
Our silence removes God’s presence and we can exhibit this silence when we don’t engage with the saints, not using the Word of Yah in warfare, and not obeying Adonai when divine instruction is given.
When we enter the presence of Yah, it is a holy convocation (sacred assembly). Yah is the center focus of our worship. He takes us up to himself. We aren’t to look back as Lot’s wife but follow Yah into covenant as His bride. Our desire should be to do the will of the Father, by interceding for others and seeking intimacy with Yah.
