Glory & Honor
Torah Portion: Terumah - Part 2 • February 24, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg
At Restoration we believe knowing Yeshua changes everything [Purpose]. “Knowing Yeshua” means having a relationship with him and when you know him you follow Him according to the Bible. As we follow we want to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Yeshua [Mission]. “Become” is important because no one has arrived at being fully devoted. We can all be more devoted followers of Yeshua. That is why we want to move people from where they are to where God wants them to be [Vision]. God created you, He formed you in your mothers womb, and He knows best the plans He has for you. Being in community helps each of us understand all that God has for us as individuals. As each person comes to terms with the idea that life is bigger than ourselves we put our gifts into strengthening the community. We follow Yeshua together. It’s like this: Yeshua changes everything. We follow Yeshua. He changes us, together.
Torah Portion: Terumah - Part 1 • February 17, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg
The Sanctuary is a place where God gets Glory & Honor! The Tabernacle and The Temple are made after a pattern in Heaven that was given to Moses. The pattern includes the priesthood, the sacrifices, and the structure of the Tabernacle and Temple themselves. Everything that is commanded in the Torah regarding the Tabernacle are only a shadow of real heavenly things. In the New Testament Yeshua is said to mediate a better covenant because He is the real thing, the original pattern that Moses built it all after. So, because of Yeshua’s death and resurrection the way into the real sanctuary of God in Heaven is open to everyone who believes in Yeshua. With the sanctuary doors open, you can find safety and refuge in the presence of God. All you have to do is call on the name of Yeshua. Sanctuary is part 1 of "Glory & Honor."
