Spend your Sabbath afternoon with us as we delve into the Scriptures from a Hebraic perspective - the same perspective from which they were written. Our Hebrew Roots fellowship enjoys interactive Bible studies, praise through song and dance, and numerous activities throughout the year.
Join us as we study and discuss the ancient path taught by Yeshua, our Hebrew Messiah. Click Here
The MESSIANIC KINGDOM OF GOD
The Messianic Kingdom is the goal of most believers. But did you know that it was also the goal of Yeshua Himself as well as His disciples? What was it about the Kingdom that made it so appealing? What did they know that we don't. Can we really know what the Kingdom of God will be like?
"The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you! They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power, to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom ..." ESV Psalm 145:9-12
While teaching His disciples about their role in spreading His message, Yeshua said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?". His answer? It's like a grain of mustard seed that will eventually encompase the whole world. The Kingdom of Israel under David's son Solomon was a prototype of that kingdom.
At Caesarea Philippi, Yeshua asked His disciples the question "Who do you think I am?" Peter quickly answered saying that Yeshua was the Christ. Though the answer was correct, Yeshua made it clear that they should not share that piece of information with anyone. Why was it important that they keep that knowledge to themselves?
What is the “Mystery of the Gospel”? There are a number of theories including that church replaced Israel or that non-Jews can become as Jews. But the mystery becomes clear when we realize that the "gospel" is the "good news" of the Kingdom of God which was heralded by both Yeshua and His disciples.
"Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand." NKJ Ezekiel 37:19
God has called His people to be examples of righteousness; not just in how we obeys His commandments, but also in how we lead others. If we are going to be teachers in the Kingdom of God, we must learn godly leadership now.
When Messiah Yeshua returns to restore His kingdom on the Earth, He will follow the pattern set by King David and King Solomon, the two kings who brought the fledgling Israelite nation to greatness. But unlike Solomon's kingdom, Yeshua's kingdom will continue to grow and will never end.

..."But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets... NKJ Acts 24:14
Hebrew Roots is an 'awakening' . . . a realization that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) meant what He said when He told his disciples that 'not one jot or tittle would pass from the law til all things are fulfilled'. Since most prophecy has yet to be fulfilled, those of us who live by His words believe we should fashion our lives after the Torah-observant example of Yeshua.
To put it in a nutshell - we believe we are saved by His grace, and that saved people will attempt to follow in the footsteps of their Saviour.
The Hebrew Walk can best be illustrated by a straight path that leads to the Mountain of God. Sin, on the other hand, is when you get off the path, which frequently leads you over a cliff and headed for destruction. The remedy for sin is 'repentance' which in Hebrew simply means to 'return' - as in 'return to the path'.
Faith is knowing that you don't walk the path alone - that God is with you, protecting and providing along the way.
Have you ever considered how you ulimately became aware of the Hebrew walk - the walk of Messiah Yeshua? How did this message finally crossed your path and peak your interest?
No matter what your circumstance, one thing is for sure – you are here because you chose to follow the teachings of someone else. In fact,
we have all chosen to follow
the teachings and testimony of 15 Jewish men – the 12 disciples along with
James, Luke, and Paul.
'Ami Yisrael' is Hebrew for 'my people Israel'. We take the words of God, Yeshua, Moses, the prophets, and Yeshua's disciples seriously. Thus when Paul said "... if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal. 3:29) we believe that applies to us. We are not trying to be Jewish, for the Jews are just a small part of the Hebrew people. Instead, we hope to pattern our lives after that of the Hebrew of Hebrews - Messiah Yeshua.
