Under Construction. Home Fellowships.

Abba is doing amazing things as He awakens His people to the roots of their faith and what it means to walk as Yeshua walked.  

We have been doing some remodeling to update and improve the interior of this 80+ year old home.  Still, Shabbat comes and we were hosting this week.  So, Friday afternoon we frantically removed tools, lumber, drywall, etc and

cleaned/vacuumed in anticipation of facilitating fellowship here.

Here are a couple pics from our home Shabbat gathering.  It is not always this big, but we are happy to host whoever He brings and yesterday was an amazing day of fellowship, midrash and worship.

Here we are gathering and getting situated…

Then, worship and dance.  (Yes, we managed to squeeze a dance circle in!!)  Boys seated on the scaffold used to drywall the 10′ ceilings… projector taped to boxes on top of the scaffold aimed at a sheet hastily tacked on the wall…

Notice the biggest blessing in the room??  Teenagers outnumbered adults almost 2:1!!!  Total numbers were about 50 Heebs.

We spent about two hours in worship and discussion of the Torah portion before breaking to eat and the fellowship spilled outside into the cooling evening until about 10 pm when families packed up to head home.

Abba is doing something amazing in our day.  We need only be willing to be used and be bridge builders among His people, facilitating and letting Him guide and direct.

I encourage you out there, find and get in fellowship. Then, as it grows and the Father leads, be willing to facilitate a group.  You do not need special degrees or training.  The Holy Spirit brought you this far…  read, study and let Abba lead!!  Seek peace and unity in all love and humility.  This is where you will find the Father’s blessing!  

Who dares, wins!!

Colonel David Stirling, founder of the British SAS, pioneered the modern military understanding and employment of special forces personnel.  His mix of highly trained very small units operating audaciously in an unconventional manner led to very high success rates in facing off the Germans in WWII.  Stirling is credited with the SAS motto, ‘Who Dares, Wins!’

RLTWWell readers, lately I (and others near me) have taken flak from a couple quarters for being willing to associate myself (ourselves) with individuals some would regard as the enemy.  So, as a note of reassurance and as a warning that there will be rock throwers on this journey, I want to tell you, ‘Who dares, wins!!’  (Another, and more dear way to say this is ‘Rangers Lead The Way!!)

Christendom has a long history of throwing Judah under the bus and trying to force them to minimally see things ‘our way,’ or worse, convert to Christianity, leaving the ‘antiquated Torah’ behind. Even today, there are many in the Messianic that haven’t figured out that 1800+ years of failed Christian mission to the Jews has NOT produced good fruit.  Maybe, just maybe, it is time to rethink our approach.  And, for acting on that conviction, I/we dodge eggs and rocks.

One of the recent egg throwing episodes was shared with me this morning and honestly, my reaction was to laugh.  Considering the host of one show had only to Google ‘Pete Rambo’ and have my name come up as the top five hits, it is instructive to note that he prefers throwing stones to doing simple research.  He gives himself away in the first twenty seconds of this clip Continue reading “Who dares, wins!!”
