This is getting really freaky. This is in a good way. My lessons in Chumash and the Tanya were about paying attention to the details and the instructions G-d gives us in the Torah.
What does my teacher Pastor Steve Gray preach about today Sunday November 26th details, details, details.
What details do you ask?
My teacher Pastor Steve Gray said:” G-d wants to bless us. In return we serve only G-d and we give up all other G-d’s except HaShem- The G-d of Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov (I added the last part)
The Pastor Steve Gray added the real kicker;” Yeshua reactivated the covenant for the last time. “
Then I saw the 613 mitzvahs’ as a ladder ascending into the sky. At the very last rung of the ladder was Yeshua with his hand welcoming us home.
My eyes filled up with tears when my teacher Pastor Steve Gray said:” G-d’s agreement is for us to walk together with HaShem. Not walk together in agreement but walk together with G-d”
Then my teacher Pastor Steve Gary added this huge gem;” Think of this book as details not in general.”
Then I saw Moshe arguing with G-d when we built the golden calf.
G-d wanted to destroy us all.
Moshe changed G-d’s mind.
G-d thanked Moshe for breaking the tablets. For either tablets would be destroyed or the Jewish people.
Moshe knew the heart of G-d and this is why Moshe broke the tablets. (Deuteronomy 33:12)
The words of the Shema prayer echoed in my head.
We say this prayer every morning. “So that you may remember and perform all My mitzvot; and be holy to your God. I am God, your God, Who has removed you from the land of Egypt to be a God to you. I am God your God… it is true.”
This why I love my teacher Pastor Steve Gray. “Real forgiveness is when you cancel the debit and pay for it yourself”
This is what Yeshua did.
This is what Moshe did.
Then I saw my teacher Steve Gray’s real heart. He is willing to do this for us.
L-rd let me lead by example.
Love is an action.
Love is correction.
Love is discipline
Love is a kind word.
Love is an arm around someone shoulder that needs comfort and compassion.
Love is active listening.
Love is willing to take direction.
Love is admitting you are wrong and then changing your actions.
To be a Jew one must learn how to be a Jew first.
To learn how to be a Jew? Study Torah.
We are taught how be Jew’s by our parents, Rabbi’s, and family.
Torah is G-d’s lesson plan.
In the end it all comes back to covenant. Covenant means I must give up self, so I can be a real human being that serves G-d first and then and only then can the world be changed when I change treat people the way I would like to be treated.
This sums up G-d’s word perfectly.
