    Hebrews: Discipline
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    When you hear the word Discipline what do you think about?  The difference between discipline and judgment is discipline has a goal, to develop a person so that in the future they can behave differently or be prepared for something.  Hebrews chapter 12 challenge us to try something hard, push forward, and accept the discipline of the Lord as Love.

    Hebrews: A Great Cloud of Witnesses
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    Did you know that clouds are made of tiny drops of water or ice crystals that settle on dust particles in the atmosphere? The droplets are so small - a diameter of about a hundredth of a millimeter - that means on average each cubic foot of air will contain about 3 million droplets.  In the same way, the Book of Hebrews affirms that those of us who follow the God of
    Abraham, Issac, and Jacob are a part of such a great cloud of witnesses that we are encouraged to run a race dropping everything that gets in the way.  Rabbi Rosenberg challenges us to make our lives into a testimony that witness the Glory of God and how He works in the lives of his people.

    Hebrews: A City for Them
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    In this sermon we explore the first part of Hebrews 11 that describes two different paths in life; one of Hope and one of fear.  Our hope is both sermons will bless you and help you understand God’s kingdom and where your life fits in.

    Hebrews: No Bodies Perfect
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    Every year, we are bombarded by TV, print, and online ads selling us on the idea that this the year that extra weight finally comes off… According to some data, Americans spend over $60 billion annually to try to lose pounds.  However, it turns out even with all that work and money
    no bodies perfect.  The book of Hebrews reminds us that the Law is the only shadow of things to come because it involves flawed human beings.  However, Yeshua offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice so that we can be accepted by God as perfect.  The only downside is that now that we don't have the daily Levitical sacrifices we also have a tendency to forget that we are still imperfect, sinners saved by grace.  In this week's sermon, Rabbi Rosenberg challenges us to offer ourselves as a daily living sacrifice, made possible by the work of Yeshua on the cross.  Yeshua offers himself as a perfect sacrifice so that we can offer our imperfect bodies in service to the Lord.

    Hebrews: Once Upon a Time
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    Thousands of stories start with a simple "Once upon a time.."  These events only happen once and the writer often uses this opening because the story is unique and sometimes unbelievable.  The writer of Hebrew tells us that something so special happened when Yeshua died on the cross, that his sacrifice was greater and more sufficient, that it only had to happen once.  This is no mere fairy tale, it is the essence of the good news of Yeshua the Messiah.  Our Messiah died for your sins once and for all.  In fact, Rabbi Jake challenges us to consider the motives of our belief.  Is Yeshua a means to an end or is the good news a relationship with the one true God of the universe.

    Hebrews: Cleansing the Conscience
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    We are bombarded daily with emails, commercials, and sales people all promising that their product will help make you feel better or improve your life in a significant way.  However, if you are like most people these promises fall sadly short of their stated goals.  The guarantee of consumerism is not satisfaction; it is a promise that you will always need more.   However, Yeshua’s guarantee is not a product but himself.  Yeshua’s sacrifice is greater than the perpetual office of the blood of bulls and goats.  He has become our mediator so that we can receive the promise of an eternal inheritance once and for all!   Rabbi Rosenberg argues in this week’s sermon that no matter how hard we try we cannot clean our own conscience; we have to allow the sacrifice of the Messiah to purify our lives so we can serve the living God.

    Hebrews: A Copy and Shadow
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    I can’t say how many times I have gone shopping only to find I already have the very thing I was looking for. In the same way, we often look for God when he is already present. The Author of Hebrews makes this point by reminding us that we have the kind of High Priest we have been waiting for; a prophet, priest, and king that performs his duty, not in an earthly temple but the one made by God himself. Therefore, we have a better promise, a more excellent ministry, and even the new covenant prophecy predicted!! In this week's sermon, Rabbi Rosenberg challenges us to live in this reality so we can find freedom from our past and walk boldy into the future God has prepared!!

    Hebrews: High Priest
    Series: NT: Hebrews
    Hebrews chapter 7 dives deeply into the mystery of God by showing us that the expectation for our Messiah is not one that merely is a new high priest but actually fulfills a deeper more ancient category of the priest that Moses and King David longed to see.  In the sermon “High Priest” Rabbi Rosenberg challenges us to leave behind old fights and immature theology and run boldly into a relationship with the God of Israel who is “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens!” (Hebrews 7:26)
