Matthew 15 - A Blessing For All!

June 27th, 2017

We often hear that the Jewish people are God's Chosen People. True, they are! They were chosen to bring God's revelation to the world. The greatest revelation that God gave us is in the appearance of His Son, Yeshua, God in the flesh! This is a blessing for all Gentiles who want salvation from death and eternal separation from God. But did you know that God had this plan in motion for thousands of years? Yes, from before the world was created, but we see another time the Lord revealed His intention to bless everyone! It was in Genesis 12:3 when He spoke to Abraham and said He would bless all nations through him. Take a listen and get stoked today!

Matthew 15 - A Desperate Faith That Pleases God

Hebrews clearly says - without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God. Even if you feel like you're on the low end of the totem pole, faith takes you to the top in God's eyes. How do we know that? From the story of the Gentile woman who desperately pleaded - in faith - for Yeshua to heal her daughter. Be encouraged!

Matthew 15 - Who Has The Last Word?

June 27th, 2017

Yeshua continually butted heads with the Jewish religious leadership. Why? We see it more clearly if we understand the difference between the Written Torah and the Oral Torah. It all comes down to foundational authority and who has the last word - God or Man?

Listen as Pastor Jay shares insights about this passage and issues a challenge to Speak Up, Speak Out, Stand Firm, and Prepare for Push-back!
