In the book of Exodus, the people of Israel, the Jewish people, begin as they meet with God at Mt Sinai. With earthquakes, lighting, fire, and a great cloud God makes a covenant with Israel through Moses. Many years later, in the book of Acts, on the same day, with fire and a cloud, the Holy Spirit is given to the disciples of Yeshua and the many Jewish people who are gathered in the Temple Courts in Jerusalem. Same God, same day, same people. Both events are about God, Israel, and the covenant that God promised would be eternal. It all starts at the Mountain of God.

You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'!
Sermon 1 • October 13, 2018 • Aybars Uckun
Yeshua had specific messages for the seven congregations in the book of Revelation. While some where encouraging and corrective in nature, others were calls to repentance. In each message we can learn more about who Yeshua is and how He can guide us through challenging circumstances. Like #theSevenStars, we are firmly in His grasp as we wait expectantly for His return! #Jewish #Seattle #restoreseattle #theturkishrabbi #theSevenStars
We Are Together
Part 6 - We Are • October 6, 2018 • Aybars Uckun
We Are Together is part 6 of the series We Are. /// In order for God to work unity into our lives, we need to address anything that hinders His plans for us. That means letting go of any agenda that keeps us from fully participating in the communities He’s called us to be a part of. We are better together!
We Are Servants
Part 5 - We Are • September 29, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg
We Are Servants is part 5 of We Are. /// We are servants and we serve God by serving others. The opposite of serving others is found in the story of Jonah in the Bible. Jonah is a prophet but a bad one who only thinks of himself. He begrudgingly does what God commands him to do only after he runs away and then does the bare minimum. Jonah is awful. So why is his story in the Bible? Because you're awful too! Jonah is an example of what not to be but Yeshua, our Messiah, is the exact opposite. With all the power in the universe He came down into creation to offer Himself as a sacrifice for awful people. We want to follow Yeshua's example and serve people like Him. We serve God by serving others. It's who we are!
