Mark 12: And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “ Which is the greatest commandment of all ?” 29And Yeshua answered him, “The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is One Lord:”

20 Meet new people! Let them see that Messianics truly understand community and brotherly/sisterly love. Say hello to old friends… show that you care!

21 We say the L-rd’s Prayer (Our Prayer) because Yeshua told us this is how we should pray. We pray so G-d will hear our petitions and grant whichever prayers are in accord with His will. We also pray In order to bless Him.

40 Exodus 33:12-34:26 Ezekiel 38:18-39:16 Rev. 20:1-15 Chol HaMo'ed Sukkot חול המועד סכות Intermediate Day of Tabernacles

41

42 We’ll read… Lev 16: 1-10 Is 58:1-14 Rev. 22:7-end of chapter Leviticus 16 Isaiah 57:14-58:14 Rev. 22:1-21 Oct 8 th Yom Kippur

43 1 ADONAI spoke with Moshe after the death of Aharon's two sons, when they tried to sacrifice before ADONAI and died; 2 ADONAI said to Moshe, "Tell your brother Aharon not to come at just any time into the Holy Place beyond the curtain, in front of the ark-cover which is on the ark, so that he will not die; because I appear in the cloud over the ark-cover. Lev 16: 1-10

44 3 "Here is how Aharon is to enter the Holy Place: with a young bull as a sin offering and a ram as a burnt offering. 4 He is to put on the holy linen tunic, have the linen shorts next to his bare flesh, have the linen sash wrapped around him, and be wearing the linen turban - they are the holy garments. He is to bathe his body in water and put them on. Lev 16: 1-10

45 5 "He is to take from the community of the people of Isra'el two male goats for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering. 6 Aharon is to present the bull for the sin offering which is for himself and make atonement for himself and his household. Lev 16: 1-10

46 7 He is to take the two goats and place them before ADONAI at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 8 Then Aharon is to cast lots for the two goats, one lot for ADONAI and the other for 'Az'azel. Lev 16: 1-10

47 9 Aharon is to present the goat whose lot fell to ADONAI and offer it as a sin offering. 10 But the goat whose lot fell to 'Az'azel is to be presented alive to ADONAI to be used for making atonement over it by sending it away into the desert for 'Az'azel. END (Baruch HaShem) Lev 16: 1-10

48 Verse 1 says… 1 ADONAI spoke with Moshe after the death of Aharon's two sons, when they tried to sacrifice before ADONAI and died This is in reference to when Jesus killed two of Aaron’s (Jesus’ High Priest) sons. Rebbe’s Parsha

49 A few chapters before this passage (chpt 10) it tells about Jesus burning those two sons alive. Their flesh was melting off their skin and they screamed in absolute horror, that’s what happens when Jesus burns you alive. They didn’t feel G-d’s Laws were all that important, it’s all in how you feel. Rebbe’s Parsha

50 I’m sure they told their friends they felt “led by the Spirit” to change the incense, that’s what they did they changed the way the incense was being done, and I’m sure they felt “led to” do that and Jesus killed them. Rebbe’s Parsha

51 Did Jesus not kill them? Or was that some other god? 1 But Nadav and Avihu, sons of Aharon, each took his censer, put fire in it, laid incense on it, and offered unauthorized fire before Jesus, something he had not ordered them to do. 2 At this, fire came forth from the presence of Jesus and consumed them, so that they died in the presence of Jesus. Rebbe’s Parsha

52 1 Shout out loud! Don't hold back! Raise your voice like a shofar! Proclaim to my people what rebels they are, to the house of Ya'akov their sins. 2 "Oh yes, they seek me day after day and [claim to] delight in knowing my ways. As if they were an upright nation that had not abandoned the rulings of their God, they ask me for just rulings and [claim] to take pleasure in closeness to God, Is 58:1-14

53 3 [asking,] 'Why should we fast, if you don't see? Why mortify ourselves, if you don't notice?' "Here is my answer: when you fast, you go about doing whatever you like, while keeping your laborers hard at work. 4 Your fasts lead to quarreling and fighting, to lashing out with violent blows. On a day like today, fasting like yours will not make your voice heard on high. Is 58:1-14

54 5 "Is this the sort of fast I want, a day when a person mortifies himself? Is the object to hang your head like a reed and spread sackcloth and ashes under yourself? Is this what you call a fast, a day that pleases ADONAI? 6 "Here is the sort of fast I want - releasing those unjustly bound, untying the thongs of the yoke, letting the oppressed go free, breaking every yoke, Is 58:1-14

55 7 sharing your food with the hungry, taking the homeless poor into your house, clothing the naked when you see them, fulfilling your duty to your kinsmen!" 8 Then your light will burst forth like the morning, your new skin will quickly grow over your wound; your righteousness will precede you, and ADONAI's glory will follow you. Is 58:1-14

56 9 Then you will call, and ADONAI will answer; you will cry, and he will say, "Here I am." If you will remove the yoke from among you, stop false accusation and slander, 10 generously offer food to the hungry and meet the needs of the person in trouble; then your light will rise in the darkness, and your gloom become like noon. Is 58:1-14

57 11 ADONAI will always guide you; he will satisfy your needs in the desert, he will renew the strength in your limbs; so that you will be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails. 12 You will rebuild the ancient ruins, raise foundations from ages past, and be called "Repairer of broken walls, Restorer of streets to live in." Is 58:1-14

58 13 "If you hold back your foot on Shabbat from pursuing your own interests on my holy day; if you call Shabbat a delight, ADONAI's holy day, worth honoring; then honor it by not doing your usual things or pursuing your interests or speaking about them. Is 58:1-14

59 14 If you do, you will find delight in ADONAI - I will make you ride on the heights of the land and feed you with the heritage of your ancestor Ya'akov, for the mouth of ADONAI has spoken.“ END (Baruch HaShem) Is 58:1-14

60 So we see quite clearly what we’re to do when we fast. Don’t go about doing whatever you want. Keep your focus on HaShem. Be careful not to slander anyone. Do good and help Believers in need. Rebbe’s Parsha

61 It also says to call His Shabbat a delight, we should do that always. If we call Shabbat a burden, we are attacking Scripture and making G-d to be a liar. If they say G-d’s Laws are dung, they are blasphemers and G-d is not in them. Rebbe’s Parsha

62 7 "Look! I am coming very soon. Blessed is the person who obeys the words of the prophecy written in this book!" 8 Then I, Yochanan, the one hearing and seeing these things, when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel showing them to me. Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

63 9 But he said to me, "Don't do that! I am only a fellow-servant with you and your brothers, the prophets and the people who obey the words in this book. Worship God!" 10 Then he said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy in this book,g because the time of their fulfillment is near. Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

64 11 "Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly; whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy. "Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous; and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy." Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

65 12 "Pay attention!" [says Yeshua,] "I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me to give to each person according to what he has done. 13 I am the 'A' and the 'Z,' the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

66 14 How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol- worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

67 16 "I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. 17 The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!' Let anyone who hears say, 'Come!' And let anyone who is thirsty come - let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge." Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

68 18 I warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. 19 And if anyone takes anything away from the words in the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the holy city, as described in this book. Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

69 20 "The one who is testifying to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming soon!'" Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua! 21 May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all! END (Baruch HaShem) Rev. 22:7-end of chapter

70 20 "The one who is testifying to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming soon!'" That doesn’t mean we have to go about telling everyone Yeshua is coming soon. People have been saying that Yeshua is coming soon for 2,000 years… they were wrong. Rebbe’s Parsha

71 Titus 2:13 while we look forward to that wonderful event when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. It doesn’t say we’re supposed to go and tell everyone He’s coming soon. Rebbe’s Parsha

72 We need to realize there are un-saved people out there who have heard this since they were kids and now they’re all grown up and they think Believers are a bunch of liars. We look forward to His coming and we live in hope that he’s coming soon. Rebbe’s Parsha

73 I don’t go telling people He’s coming soon. We have to realize that The Disciples didn’t even get it right. These were men who we’re not even worthy of tying their shoes. They knew things we wont know till we get to heaven. Rebbe’s Parsha

74 It’s presumptuous of me to think I know better then they. Yes, there are many wars and things happening now. But there were a lot worse things happening in WW II. There were worse things happening at the time of Nero. Rebbe’s Parsha

75 And if you think things can’t get any worse then they are today, well, then you’re just kiddin yourself. Things can get a lot worse. I’m not being an alarmist, I’m being a realist. Rebbe’s Parsha

76 Baruch atah Adonay Eloheynu melech ha'olam, asher bachar-banu mikol ha'amim, venatan-lanu et torah-to. Baruch atah Adonay, noten hatorah.

77 Blessed are You, LORD our God, king of the universe, who chose us from all the peoples and gave to us His Torah. Blessed are You, LORD, giver of the Torah.

79 Today’s Message: Yom Kippur 1. How to celebrate… 2. Natzal… (Catching away) 3. Teshuva… (repentance +)

80 Yom Kippur So how do we celebrate the Feast of Yom Kippur? Well, we don’t feast for one. Then how come it’s called a Feast then?

81 Yom Kippur The word in Hebrew is “Hog”. So we say Hog Samayach for example, that means happy Holy Day is where we get the word holiday.

82 Yom Kippur Samayach is happy and hog means holiday. So the Feast of Yom Kippur is actually the “holiday of Yom Kippur”. It’s not the feast of Yom Kippur regardless of what your translations say.

83 Yom Kippur So we fast this day. Why do we do that? Because the Bible tells us to in Leviticus 23:27

84 Yom Kippur “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present an offering made to the LORD by fire.”

85 Yom Kippur Well it doesn’t say fast there does it? Says to deny yourself. In Hebrew it says ana nefesh which literally means to afflict your soul. Well, what does that mean?...

86 Yom Kippur Couldn’t that be interpreted a lot of different ways? It could if it was standing by itself. But each and every time in Scripture, ana nefesh is used to mean fasting food. Everything has to be interpreted in context.

87 Yom Kippur But can’t one fast anything? Yes, a person can fast a lot of things. And if you chose to fast water and food today, like the Orthodox do, you’re free to do so. But the Bible doesn’t require that.

88 Yom Kippur Why do the Orthodox believe it includes water? There’s a few reasons. In Exodus we read about Moses going up to Mt Sinai and it says…

89 Yom Kippur (Exo 34:28 And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

90 Yom Kippur (This was a very special circumstance for Moses, because if one normally goes without water for 40 days, they die.

91 Yom Kippur The book of Esther is also used, it says… (Est 4:16) Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which {is} not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

92 Yom Kippur So this was a three day fast, and not connected to Yom Kippur. And we see that when it was a fast for both food and water, it specifically says food and water. If it says only ana nefesh (or it’s masculine or feminine plural forms) it means only food every time. It’s all in context.

93 Yom Kippur Concerning context…If one has a disposition against Jews, guess what, the Bible will not make any logical sense to that individual they will have to spiritualize 9/10ths of the Bible.

94 Yom Kippur They teach in Bible School, therefore the redeemed of the L-rd shall return unto Zion Isaiah 51:11 they taught us that means the Church going to heaven. You can read this in a multitude of Christian books out there.

95 Yom Kippur However, logic will tell you that the Church can’t return to a place it’s never been, the Church has never been to heaven. What it means is that Born again Jews will return to Zion, but… the Church doesn’t want to believe that so they spiritualize it since the context doesn’t fit their theology

96 Yom Kippur So everything HAS to be understood in context. Ana Nefesh in context means to go without food. So what else do we do for Yom Kippur. It’s a solemn day, it’s not a party day. This is the time to understand what Yeshua has done for us on that cursed cross and we’ll talk about Teshuva in a moment.

97 Yom Kippur Another thing we do is blow the Shofar, the Tekiah… that’s one long blast. We’ll do that now…

98 Yom Kippur It being a solemn day we don’t go out to the movies or anything like that. Today, Jews go home and spend time with their family talking about the things of G-d. Talk to your wife about some of the things you’ve been thinking about concerning your faith. Answer any questions she might have. Go for a walk in the park.

99 Yom Kippur Pick out a favorite teaching that meant something to you on the Beit Aveinu site and go over it with your family. Whatever you do make it about G-d. Keep the day sanctified and set apart.

100 Yom Kippur I remember the first Yom Kippur we had in Israel in Jerusalem. Everything came to a stop. No cars on the road, no buses no businesses were open it became an instant ghost town. It didn’t matter that only 10 percent were religious Jews, nobody dared to desecrate the Day of Atonement it was very quiet.

101 Yom Kippur As soon as the sun goes down (7:30 tonight) everything goes back to normal. It’s a time to remember G-d and to be a little quiet.

102 Yom Kippur Why be quiet? Because you should be listening. As a Believer in yeshua, You should really be listening. Listening for what? Listening for the Second Coming.

103 Yom Kippur In Hebrew the catching away is called Natzal. In order to understand Natzal we have to go over a couple things. One is that we have to look deeper concerning the Tekiah blast of the Shofar that we did just a bit ago.

104 Yom Kippur Psalms 89:15 “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.” (NKJ) But that’s not what it says in Hebrew. In Hebrew it says…

105 Yom Kippur Ash-ray HaAm yod-aye te-ru-ah YHVH Blessed are the people that know the trumpet sound of the L_RD B'or pah-naye-chaw Y'hah-lay-koon In the light from Your face they shall walk

106 Yom Kippur Now that’s quite a bit different then just some joyful noise. Blessed is he who knows the trumpet sound. What trumpet sound…. THE trumpet sound.

107 Yom Kippur There’s a reason why we have Rosh HaShanna (the feast of trumpets) just before Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. The feast of trumpets is an announcement. It announces the return of HaMashiach (the Messiah)

108 Yom Kippur You might remember when my dad was teaching and he explained to us the return of the Messiah would NOT come upon us as a thief in the night. We read…

109 Yom Kippur 1Thessalonians 5:2-4 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night when they say, "Peace and safety!" Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.

110 Yom Kippur In other words, we KNOW that it is coming. We see the Sign of the Son of Man for one. We know Rosh HaShanna is the announcement for the Second Coming.

111 Yom Kippur In the end days we see the 6 trumpets of tribulation (represented by Rosh HaShanna) come upon the earth.

112 Yom Kippur That’s 6 trumpets, not 7 the 7 th trump is blown today on Yom Kippur and it is known by every Orthodox Jew as Shofar HaGadole (The Great Trumpet) The Tekiah! It is the 7 th and final trumpet. In the last days when that trumpet blows it’ll fall on the year of jubilee.

113 Yom Kippur That will happen when the Messianic Congregation no longer has any spots or wrinkles. Let’s talk about that for a second. He who has ears let him hear… For one you notice I didn’t say the Church wont have any spots or wrinkles. I didn’t say Church because it doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity. It’s about the Messianics being spotless and without wrinkle.

114 Yom Kippur There are some good Christians out there but they will have to get on board with us (the Messianics) and become Jews. That’s who the “Church” was back then, they were a bunch of Jews. Getting those spots out of us, may not be so easy. Thus the word tribulation.

115 Yom Kippur We get our English word “tribulation” from the Latin TRIBULUM which is used to separate the wheat from the chaff. It looks like this…

116

117 Yom Kippur This was then put on the ground and a person stood up on top of it to put some more weight on it and that looked like this…

118

119 Yom Kippur If you have sin in your life that is what you can look forward to… being raked over with sharp rocks with G-d standing on the tribulum.

120 Yom Kippur If you only have some spots or wrinkles in your life, some adjustments you need to go through, well do you know how they got spots and wrinkles out of clothes in the first century? Like this…

121 They beat it with a stick or against rocks

122 Yom Kippur One of our major goals here at Beit Aveinu is to get you to be sin free and without spot or wrinkle. We attempt to do it very gently, but sometimes people don’t want to listen and they rebel against even a little personal correction and…

123 Yom Kippur they leave the Congregation in a huff saying “I can’t believe he talked to me like that”. Ok, ‘ hope you enjoy your tribulum. We’re trying to help, but in order to do that, you gotta have some openness and let down your pride a notch or two.

124 Yom Kippur The Seventh Trumpet is the “Catching Away” Shofar 1 Corinthians 15: Behold, I tell you a hidden truth: We shall not all sleep in death, but we shall all be changed, 52in a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

125 Yom Kippur This all happens at the Last Trump. Also notice it doesn’t say we’re all caught away in the twinkeling of an eye, it says we’ll all be changed in the twinkeling of an eye. This is the moment we will get our glorified bodies.

126 Yom Kippur The Catching away of the Saints is the fulfillment of the Sixth Feast of the L-RD: Yom Kippur – The Day of Atonement in the Year of Jubilee

127 Yom Kippur There is a Fast every year on the Day of Atonement until the Fiftieth Year – The Year of Jubilee Leviticus 25: Then have the shofar sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the shofar throughout your land. 10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you ; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan.

128 Yom Kippur The year of Jubilee is a time of restoration… We don’t know any longer when the year of jubilee is, after the destruction of the temple the count was lost. But G-d still knows when it falls and one day on the day of atonement, it’ll be on a year of jubilee.

129 Yom Kippur When that happens the last shofar will sound on Yom Kippur in the year of jubilee and everything will be restored.

130 Yom Kippur This Last Shofar [Trumpet], Trumpet #7 is when the Believers get back all the things lost to mankind by sin – our JUBILEE! The sin of Adam and Eve brought us: death, war, disease, loss of full communication with G-D, misery and pain.

131 Yom Kippur But we’re told in 1 Corinthians 15: For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22For as in Adam all die, so in Messiah all will be made alive. It all happens at the last trump

132 Yom Kippur Isaiah 27:13 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that on the great trumpet Tekiah shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”

133 Yom Kippur Matthew 24: " Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

134 Yom Kippur 31 "And He will send His messengers with a sound of the great trumpet (The Tekiah), and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

135 Yom Kippur Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh messenger sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this universe have come the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

136 Yom Kippur That means when the Last Trumpet blows, the L-RD will begin to destroy the last of the rebellion against Him and all the Universe will be subject unto Him alone.

137 Yom Kippur That means when the Last Trumpet blows, the L-RD will begin to destroy the last of the rebellion against Him and all the Universe will be subject unto Him alone.

138 Teshuva Now, we’re going to talk about Teshuva. Teshuva is usually translated as “repentance” in English Bibles. But it is so much more then just that.

139 Teshuva In fact, not understanding what Teshuva is has caused one of the bigger blunders in Church history (from which the Church is still suffering) and because of the lack of understanding of just exactly what it is, we’ve ended up having clowns for Sheppards instead of a nation of Priests.

140 Teshuva If we don’t truly understand repentance, then the strongest part of Yeshua’s message while he was on earth is nothing more…

141 then confetti coming from the clown cannon

142 Teshuva Repentance in it’s shallowest form isn’t even taught any more. Actually the opposite is preached from most pulpits. Today people go to a place where they’ll hear how they can keep on sinning and not only that but have G-d’s blessings all along the way.

143 Teshuva They’ll tell their people, hey you’re righteous… G-d loves ya just the way you are. If that was true then why did “Jesus” go around telling everyone to repent?

144 Teshuva Repent in it’s simplest form means to turn around and go the other way. Sounds like change to me.

145 Teshuva Does it make me angry, you bet it does, it also disgusts me to see true repentance not taught in a place that claims to follow G-d. And if it is taught, it can’t just be all words either. I see that all the time.

146 Teshuva “Repent, repent, repent” and then that same preacher goes out and does the same thing he’s always done, he keeps breaking G-d’s Laws. They profane the Sabbath, they don’t keep G-d’s appointed times. They don’t keep Yom Kippur, it’s the Holiest day of the year.

147 Teshuva Do yourself a favor, after service today, go see what your Pastor’s doing. It’s the holiest day of the year, he better be doing something.

148 Teshuva “Oh, he doesn’t know any better.” Really? He doesn’t know what the Gospel is, he doesn’t know he should keep the Sabbath and he doesn’t know to keep the Holiest day of the year, but wont miss the feast of Ishtar. I’m sorry, that’s not a Sheppard…

149 Teshuva You’re following a clown. He always has a smile on, you can cry on his shoulder, he puts on a really good show and even the kids love him. If that’s what you’ve asked for then that’s what you’ll get. Hey BoBo tell us a story that’ll make us feel good.

150 Teshuva I’m not going to tell you a story to make you feel good today. Today, if you have sin in your life I’m shooting to make you feel as uncomfortable as I possibly can. When your alone with your thoughts later on today, I hope you’ll grieve and have a revelation of what you’ve done to a G-d who loved you like a son or a daughter.

151 Teshuva Teshuva isn’t just repentance. It’s coming to a place in your life where you have a deep understanding of the chaos you’ve created and the damage you’ve done. It’s understanding the full consequences of your actions and feeling disgusted at what your particular sin has done to you and those around you.

152 Teshuva depending on the sin, you may have opened up your home to evil spirits. These spirits may be afflicting your family members even right now. Sins you have committed may have set your children or even your spouse on a destructive path.

153 Teshuva Before you ask for prayer for them, make sure you’re not partly responsible. If you are partly responsible you may not be able to completely repair the damage you’ve done but you can stop further damage right now.

154 Teshuva “G-d heals all things once you become a Believer”, no He doesn’t that’s a lie. Lets me take it to an extreme to show you a point, if you were a serial killer and then you get Saved, guess what? You still have broken families of your victims left in your wake.

155 Teshuva Take responsibility for what you’ve done and weep over the chaos you’ve created with your sin. Once you can do that, then you begin to understand Teshuva.

156 Teshuva Teshuva is also about restitution. Making restitution means to make things right. If you bail out of this part of Teshuva you haven’t completed repentance. What type of sins require restitution?

157 Teshuva Not all of them. You don’t go to your ex girlfriends house and tell her your sorry for having immoral relations with her because her current 300 pound boyfriend might come outside and kill you. Now you’ve caused him to commit murder.

158 Teshuva You have to intelligently consider which of your sins needs restitution. If it’s a person you’ve sinned against and they don’t know what you’ve done and it would not help or benefit them to know you need to find a way to restore or make right what you’ve done without them knowing.

159 Teshuva For example, say I’ve harbored hatred and bitterness towards one of my brothers here at Beit Aveinu. I don’t walk up to that individual and say, “Ya know, I’ve hated you since the moment I laid eyes on you please forgive me, whew, wow, I feel better G-d bless ya brother”.

160 Teshuva All you did there is make yourself feel better and may have now caused your brother to sin. If you’ve stolen from someone you need to pay them back. It doesn’t matter how long ago the theft occurred, you make it right.

161 Teshuva Teshuva is also about confession. Confession wasn’t started by the Catholics. It’s a Jewish thing. It’s even in the Torah…

162 Teshuva Numbers 5:5 ADONAI said to Moshe, 6 "Tell the people of Isra'el, 'When a man or woman commits any kind of sin against another person and thus breaks faith with ADONAI, he incurs guilt…

163 Teshuva 7 He must confess the sin which he has committed; and he must make full restitution for his guilt, add twenty percent and give it to the victim of his sin.

164 Teshuva We read again in Nehemiah 9… 1 On the twenty-fourth day of this month the people of Isra'el, wearing sackcloth and with dirt on them, assembled for a fast.

165 Teshuva 2 Those descended from Isra'el separated themselves from all foreigners; then they stood up and confessed their own sins and the iniquities of their ancestors.

166 Teshuva The Brit Hadasha echoes this in James chapter 5… 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man (person) is powerful and effective.

167 Teshuva So what does it mean one to another? It means between a man and his Rabbi and a woman and her Rebbitzin. Men confess to me and women confess to Teresa.

168 Teshuva “Why isn’t it to just anyone?” Because of what it says there… The prayer of a righteous man (person) is powerful and effective.

169 Teshuva One shouldn’t indiscriminately just go to any one else in the Congregation and start laying on them all their sins. That person you choose may not even BE righteous.

170 Teshuva “Why do it at all?” Because again it says right there… for prayer. You want someone qualified to pray and instruct you. The Rabbi might have some ideas on how to help you stop committing the sin.

171 Teshuva The Rabbi can also be helpful in then keeping you accountable. It also can help simply in the fact that now that someone knows, you may not be quite so prone to doing it again.

172 Teshuva Why do protestants not do this then? Well, for one, it was such a big “Catholic thing” that the protestants wanted to distance themselves from it.

173 Teshuva It didn’t matter if its in the Bible or not, it’s more important to distinguish themselves from the other groups. Which is exactly what the Catholics did to the Jews long before the Jew hating Protestants came along. You reap what you sow. Catholics and Protestants who hate Jews will not see the Kingdom of G-d.

174 Teshuva I’ve just as much against the Protestants in history as I do the Catholics. Back to confession, after service today Teresa and I will be in 2 different rooms outside this classroom and we’ll be available for confession.

175 Teshuva In order to confess one’s sins, you need to know what a sin is. We’ve talked before that it isn’t any evil thought that comes into your mind. It can become a sin if you continue to meditate on it or plan to do it. But a fleeting thought is NOT a sin.

176 Teshuva I’m not a serial killer because I watched a documentary on serial killers. Police detectives aren’t in sin when they have to get into the minds of criminals in order to catch them. “They thought it, it’s just as if they did it”. No wonder Christians say they sin everyday and that it’s impossible to NOT sin.

177 Teshuva If one has sinned because of every evil thought, then yeah, they have sinned because you can’t help those thoughts coming into your mind every day. But we know that’s NOT what Yeshua was talking about for 2 reasons…

178 Teshuva 1 if we can’t help sinning everyday, then Yeshua couldn’t have told the adulteress in John 8:11 to “Go and sin no more”. Reason number 2 is that it’s stupid to think that would count as something that can separate you from G-d.

179 Teshuva Increased faith doesn’t equal stupidity or lack of common sense. In fact faith in the truth enhances intelligence and common sense.

180 Teshuva This whole idea of “Oh I had a bad thought, dog gone it, G-d has left me”. You’d have to go completely brain dead in order to stay a Believer. Which, admittedly, is what many seem to have done.

181 Teshuva So what is sin then? This is the best day in the year to talk about it. 1 John 3:4 says…Sin is the transgression of the Law. Yes, sin does separate you from G-d. That being said, all sin has to be committed with knowledge and understanding of what you’ve done.

182 Teshuva a sin unto death can not be done in ignorance. So what is a sin unto death? That’s a sin that you know you’ve committed. A sin not unto death is a sin that you honestly didn’t know was a sin.

183 Teshuva Now, that doesn’t mean one can claim ignorance on all their sins. Well, I didn’t know we weren’t supposed to keep the Law. Maybe you didn’t but let me share with you all it takes to have known. “hmm Pauls says I am not free from the Law, nah, I don’t wanna do that, I think my pastor’s right.”

184 Teshuva rejection can happen that quickly. In a blink of an eye, one can reject G-d’s Laws. “Ooo, that’s harsh, Christians don’t think rejecting G-d’s truth can happen so easily.”

185 Teshuva Wanna bet, 90% of the Churches out there will tell you that if someone preaches a 5 minute Salvation message to someone and that person right there on the spot rejects Jesus, if they died, they go to hell. Rejection can happen in the blink of an eye.

186 Teshuva If you’ve rejected G-d’s Torah, this is the day to repent. Make it right today. If you’ve told your friends that the Law isn’t for you, repent and then go to them and tell them you were wrong. If you’ve rejected G-d’s Laws and have done things just because your Pastor told you to, repent and go tell your Pastor, you’ve sinned against G-d.

187 Teshuva G-d is convicting you right now rather you feel it or not. If you want to know how G-d uses our feelings, I’ll tell ya when that is…

188 Teshuva it’s when your heart feels broken because of your disobedience. It’s when your heart is in your throat and you can hardly talk because you feel your sin weighs like truck on your back. That’s what you should be feeling if you truly understand Teshuva.

189 Teshuva The One and only G-d came and died for you on a cross in a most painful of ways. Physically worse then your worst illness, worse then your worst headache He felt more pain in His heart then any of us who have lost a loved one. Yeshua died for our sins and sin is the breaking and rejection of G-d’s Laws

190 Teshuva If you truly did not know that breaking or rejecting G-d’s Laws wasn’t a sin. Consider yourself educated this day, on the Day of Atonement. If you’re involved in a sin here’s what you can do to start. I’m going to demonstrate for you.

191 Teshuva You get yourself some burlap and then get some ashes from your BBQ and you do this… (Demonstrate starting with tear) Then you ask G-d to help you to never repeat that sin again ever.

192 Teshuva You can find me and Teresa in two different rooms available for confession. Shabbat Shalom.
