WELCOME FRIENDS OF THIS TORAH LIFE
A Journey for Messianic Christians, 5782
Welcome to this Journey of the Spirit, the study of the Garden of God’s Torah as described by Adonai Himself. Think of the Garden of Eden, in all its beauty. The Torah brings beauty into the lives of faithful Talmidim, or Torah Students.
If you are hungering for the truest words of instruction, from the language which was deep inside our Lord and Savior as He grew up as a Jew speaking Hebrew, living a Jewish life, learning the Torah in the Temple, observing the sacred Jewish Feasts, then, it is He who calls you to this.
Each one of us who have been called at this time and place to enter onto a “well-worn path” of seeking His deepest truths, is becoming aligned with God’s will for our lives. When we dig deeply, making a well-worn path to the father’s throne each day, we are fulfilling our eternal destiny!
We were created for true worship and intimacy with the God of Creation.
Our journey over the next 12 months together will bind us into a community of trusted friends, or mereas. We will share this year as Kingdom Women who have been called to step up to a holy journey, leading us into a deeper knowledge of Adonai’s character and the many facets of His Power, Presence, and Pre-Eminence, as expounded upon throughout the pages of the Books of Moses! (The Pentateuch)
As mereas journeying together each week into the sacred Torah, the Prophets, the Books of Wisdom, and the New Testament (Brit Chadashah) we will support and teach one another, sharing what the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh) is imparting to each one of us.
The journey looks like spheres within spheres! In the inner-most sphere is our Holy Communion with Adonai, the outward sphere depicts our growing relationships, as fruitfulness is birthed from our closeness to the Lord, and the final outer sphere is our fruitful discipleship with those around us! Torah changes us, and those we love, because Holy Fire Catches what is nearest to it on FIRE!
