A Word For 2018

God Leads

Part 4 - Torah Portion: Beshalach • January 27, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg

“God Leads” is part 4 of the series “Boldness.” The great enemy of Boldness is control. For the children of Israel, when they were set free from Egypt, God’s presence moved ahead of them as a cloud by day and a fire by night. For those who believe in Yeshua the Holy Spirit goes before us in the same way but we struggle to remain in control of our own lives. You want to feel like you have control but you don’t and you can’t because there is so much we cannot control. When you let your desire for control go and give it the Lord, who actually controls all things, He will bring you peace and calmness even in the midst of difficult things. In the Name of Yeshua you can have a sense of calm when you give up trying to be in control.

The Lamb

Part 3 - Torah Portion: Bo • January 20, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg

Passover is a memorial. We set up memorials to the past (what God did), memorials for the present (what God is doing), and memorials to the future (what God will do). One of the most profound aspects of the celebration of the Passover is the sacrifice of the Passover Lamb. As followers of Yeshua we recognize the amazing parallels between the Passover Lamb being offered for the sins of the people in Exodus and Yeshua offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins. The book of Hebrews tells us that because of the blood of Yeshua we can now enter boldly before the throne of God. In our search for boldness in our relationship with Yeshua we need to understand Yeshua as our Passover Lamb.

He Will

Part 2 - Torah Portion: Vaera • January 13, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg

Everyone is trying to figure out God’s will for their lives. In Vaera, the second Torah portion of Exodus, we find the verses which became the four cups of Passover. Four “I will” statements from God to His people Israel. Four promises that He will fulfill for everyone, from every nation, who calls on the name of Yeshua. Want to know God’s will for your life? He will sanctify you, He will Deliver you, He will redeem you, and He will take you as His own. When we understand these truths we can walk with God in boldness!


Part 1 - Torah Portion: Shemot • January 6, 2018 • Matt Rosenberg

This series is not about being bold WITH your faith it’s about being bold IN your faith in God. BOLDNESS is the theme word for 2018 for our synagogue in Seattle. Our prayer for everyone: our members, regular attenders, guests and Restoration App listeners is that God will show himself in such amazing ways that it will make us bold in our relationship with Him. We will believe and ask for greater things than we have believed and asked for before because the best is always ahead of us.
