We are excited to write to you with an encouraging proclamation, that these are the days of the restoration of all things! The true pattern of all giving all is being lived out once again on the earth!
When the Son of God was asked which was the greatest commandment, He responded by saying it is to love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. In order to truly keep this commandment (the greatest of all) you must really consider what you are investing your life into. Whatever you consider most valuable is where your heart’s energy goes. That’s why Yahshua said in John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Are You Giving All?
We are sincere believers who have responded to the call to lay down our lives for our friends everyday (1 John 3:16). Now we are bonded together with them as we strive to keep all of our Savior’s commandments.
Many of us used to visit from church to church or messianic synagogue to synagogue, going to this spiritual event and that spiritual event just trying to find a way to truly be pleasing to our Creator. We use to think we had to make it on our own… that’s what we were taught. Now we’ve come to see and believe that we cannot know Him or truly love Him apart from knowing and loving one another as He Commanded in John 13:34-35.
Now we serve Him every day by submitting to one another in the fear of Messiah (Ephesians 5:21). We have come to see that the Gospel is a call for all to give all. Not Just the Rabbis or the Clergy or pastor or the missionaries but “the congregation” in Acts 4:32 is every member giving all they have!
The Feasts are Just a Ritual if You Are Not Giving All
The feasts and festivals cannot be kept in all sincerity if giving all is not the response to Yahshua’s Gospel. He gave all He had, so this must be the motivating factor for our “all”. Our lives are given up in thankfulness for His great mercy and kindness shown towards us.
Some of us tried to keep the festivals in tradition, just because history or the Bible or Torah Rabbis says so. and yes we wanted to be obedient. The Pharisee’s did the same and taught others to do the same, and many of us did this for years only to find out it was just a religious ritual! What Yahshua was addressing, was the deep selfishness that had to be dealt with first. If we don’t obey the command to love, then it is only kept as a ritual! Only by truly loving Him and knowing and loving one another giving all we have as He Commanded in John 13:34-35. then it’s a true religion pure & clean that take care of the orphans & widows where all the needs are met.
Yes, now we keep the festival feasts but not apart from giving all!
Loving YHWH your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind… and your neighbor as yourself… “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” (Matt 22:37-40) So the feasts and every other commandment depend upon giving all you have. It does no good to try to keep the commandments apart from loving Him with all you have which is exactly what the gospel of Yahshua requires. Only then will the festivals be pure and clean with no self in it.
Total Surrender Is Giving All You Have
That’s the Gospel. All gives all to the greater King.
Luke 14:33 “In the same way, any one of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be My disciple.”
Giving all is simply the appropriate response, from the heart, to Yahshua dying for us and going into death for us, taking our place in death and suffering the torment we were worthy of. Why wouldn’t we give all we have to Him?
This cannot be done alone. Our Father needs us to obey, loving and giving all we have so our Father can meet all the needs of his lonely needy ones. Those who give all are His hands and feet – yes, His Body – on the earth. How else will He take care of His needy ones?
A dwelling place where the true Gospel is preached and lived out by believers who love Yahshua with all their heart mind soul and strength. They have given up everything in response to Yahshua’s sacrifice and obey His command to love one another the way He loved them.
Yahshua the messiah prayed for this in John 17:20-23
“I am not asking on behalf of them alone, but also on behalf of those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I am in You. May they also be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. I have given them the glory You gave Me, so that they may be one as We are one—I in them and You in Me—that they may be perfectly united, so that the world may know that You sent Me and have loved them just as You have loved Me.”
The Bible says that all who believed lived together, and they shared all things in common (Acts 2:44, 4:32).
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Our Bible-believing communities are places where all are needed (Ephesians 4:16) and all speak (1 Corinthians 14:24) when we gather together to share from our hearts. This daily encouragement gives all of us vision and strength to press on (Hebrews 3:13).
If you truly desire to do God’s will and be pleasing to Him, then you are just like us who write this invitation. We have published this in hopes of finding other God-fearing men and women who are looking for the place where they can serve God with all their heart, soul, and strength.
In each place we live and work together, and gather every morning and evening to thank and praise our God. Please come visit us any time, and especially on Friday evenings when we welcome the Sabbath with songs, Israeli Folk Dancing and a special meal where we can share our hearts together.
You can find a list of our communities here.
Please call or visit at any time. Come for a day or to stay!
