Messianic ministry specializing in guiding Jewish and Non- Jewish people to faith in the Jewish Messiah. We encourage and train our traditional Church body to participate in Hebraic roots so they can develop a more personal relationship with Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus the Christ. We also specialize in fostering and mentoring Messianic Communities and Leaders. Messianic Rabbi and Pastor Jay Fielding Beth Chaim Messianic Congregation Network Thank you MVC! Michele and Jay Fielding, Members Luke 24:27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
The Kingdom of God The Kingdom of God is the eternal spiritual home where Believers will live with God in infinite blessing, provision, love, joy, intimacy & holiness as his children.(Ephesians 1) The Kingdom of God is the very purpose and will of God! Luke 16:16-17 “The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law. Matthew 22:36-40 (paraphrase) The law and the prophets teach us (hang on) (depend on ) how to love God, ourselves and our neighbors with all our heart, soul and mind. Matthew 13:44-47 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
Genesis/ Beginnings Tree of Life (ZOE)! or Tree of Knowledge (BIOS) (Eternal Life) (This Life or Life to Death) In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:14-17 “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. Romans 1:25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator— who is forever praised. Amen. Kingdom of God Kingdom of Men
The Kingdom of God Understanding the Role of Israel and the Church to Genesis Revelation Genesis 3:24-4:1 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life… so they would not live forever. Revelation 2:6-8 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. Tree of Life to Tree of Life Learning Model! What is God’s Original and Ending Intent ? Types, Shadows, Pattern
Lost in the Garden fall? ECHAD/Unity of our relationships: God, Marriage, Family, Animals, Land The “Image of God” now Image of Adam Dominion over earth The Tree of Life The Garden of Eden. The presence of God Yom Kippur example Gen 15:6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness. In love, God will redeem, renew or rebuild, all that was lost, through Israel and the Church because of His love for Abraham. Blessings to Abraham/Israel: 1.Promised Land – representing Eternal Life in the Kingdom. 2.Messiah the seed of the woman. Father of Nations. Father of Faith. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Israel and you! Israel and the Church. 3.The Law, Prophets To learn to love God, our neighbors and ourselves. 4.Presence: The progressive return of God with us. Appointed Times
Colossians 2: no one is to act as your judge in regard to …to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day— things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ. Hebrews 10:1 For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come God often teaches through Types/Images/Shadows/Symbols: Tree of LifeKingdom of God SerpentSatan MarriageChurch and Christ IsraelHumanity-1st Son Nations Appointed Times/FeastsPlan of Redemption Blood of Passover LambBlood of Christ PharaohSatan and Kings of Men EgyptBondage to Sin and KOM Land of Milk & HoneySalvation- Kingdom of God Abraham, Isaac, JacobFather, Son and Holy Spirit Image (Strong's #6754) צלם t selem) is literally a shadow which is the outline of the original. shadow (Strongs 4639) skiá – (skee'-ah) properly, the shadow of a looming presence; Type (Strongs 5179 (týpos)) means “Pattern"5179
God promises restoration and redemption but he exiles humanity from the Garden and Tree of Life. Gen 3:15 is the first Messianic Prophecy. Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” Genesis 3:24-4:1 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. The KOG was available to Adam and Eve! But they sinned by eating the forbidden TOK Exile is a pattern to help us understand that sin separates us from God. Restoration of the Presence of God is what the progression of the Kingdom of God is about. Yeshua/Jesus is God with us.
(Blessing) Deuteronomy 7: because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God …will love you and bless you and multiply you; …the fruit of your womb.. the fruit of your ground. The Lord will remove from you all sickness Blessing followed by sin, followed by Diaspora/Judgment, followed by God’s Promise. (Exile): Jeremiah 5:19 (Exile) ‘As you have forsaken me and served foreign gods in your own land, so now you will serve foreigners in a land not your own.’ (Promise) Jeremiah 31:30-34 “The (Appointed) time is coming,..“when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah…. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
The blessings or Promises to Abraham are extended or Progressed to the Gentiles, but not at the Replacement of Israel: (Promise) Ezekiel 36:35-36 They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the LORD have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. What happens to Israel is a Pattern of what happened to Adam and Even. Blessing followed by Sin followed by Exile followed by Promise! (Promise) Isaiah 49:6-7 He says, “It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light of the nations So that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
Leviticus 23:1-2 The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed feasts (appointed times) of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies. 10 (Blessing) Ephesians 2:12-13 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.

If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:15-19 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
Hebrews 11:23-28 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. …By faith he kept the Passover The Appointed Times of the Lord! Redeeming the Presence of God 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast,..with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
In The Kingdom of God there is Unity between Israel and Church to Genesis Revelation Tree of Life to Tree of Life! Revelation 21:10-14 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, … On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. …The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb
