On the Road with Chaim Goldman

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, June 12:

Chaim Goldman is back! When we talked with him several weeks ago, he had just launched Hebraic Home Fellowships for the purpose of helping the Messianic/Hebrew Roots movement grow globally in number, maturity, and impact. How has HHF progressed in the vision to encourage community through the creation, promotion, health, and proper stewardship of independent home fellowships?

That is what we want to find out from Chaim. He is ready to tell us how the Kingdom First Leadership Training is developing. This flagship program is designed to help leaders and facilitators of home and small group fellowships. How is the first iteration of KFLT progressing?

Chaim and his family are also about to embark on a ministry tour across the US. With an itinerary that stretches out for several months, it’s quite possible that they will be in a town near you!
The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn and Daniel Holdings, is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.

So we’ve learned about Torah. Now what?

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, April 10:

The Messianic/Hebrew Roots Movement exists because people are realizing that their relationship with Yeshua (Jesus) grows deeper when they begin to learn and apply Torah (the (Law, Teaching, and Commandments of YHVH). This is a paradigm shift from the traditional Christian understanding many Hebraic people have practiced for much of their lives. Sadly, what usually happens is that the paradigm shift makes it difficult to remain in a traditional Christian setting, which means Torah followers leave the church – and the fellowship, community, and other good things the church has to offer. The result is a growing number of isolated disciples of Yeshua who are increasing in their biblical knowledge, but missing out on the greater experience of the Body that our Messiah and His Father intended from the beginning.

What is the remedy? Chaim Goldman has a suggestion. For 20 years Chaim has been laboring to restore the divisions in the Body of Messiah through his work at Repairing the Breach Restoration Ministry. Now he is launching a new ministry: Hebraic Home Fellowships, a Kingdom-minded organization with a mission, “to help the Messianic/Hebrew Roots movement grow globally in number, maturity, and impact, as a support network that encourages community through the creation, promotion, health, and proper stewardship of independent home fellowships.”
Does that sound like something that fills a gap in today’s Messianic/Hebrew Roots Movement? Yes, it does! Join us as we ask Chaim about his experience in this movement, and how the vision for Hebraic Home Fellowships came into focus.

What to Do When the World Blows Up: A Review of “Know the Time, Change Your World”, by Barry L. Miller

BFB150826 Know the TimeIt seems that everyone is expecting the world to change for the worse in September 2015.  That, at least, is a prevailing topic of conversation here in the United States.  I have been part of such discussions many times over the last few months, and regardless how the discussion begins, it invariably comes down to the question, “What do we do now?”

The people of YHVH should be paying attention to the signs of the times.  We are indeed on the brink of major changes to the world system, and these changes likely will involve a combination of economic, military, political, and civil unrest, with a few major natural disasters thrown in for good measure.  It is, after all, the end of the Shemitah, the seventh, or sabbatical, year in the seven-year cycle the Lord explained to Moses (Exodus 23:10-12; Leviticus 25:1-7; Deuteronomy 15:1-6, 31:9-13).  It is also the time of the fourth Blood Moon of the tetrad we have seen at Passover and Tabernacles over these last two years.  What, if anything, are we to do about all of this?

Happily, there is someone who has undertaken the task of answering that question in a rational, systematic fashion using principles derived straight from the Bible.  We can thank people like Rabbi Jonathan Cahn and Pastor Mark Biltz for bringing the Shemitah cycle to the attention of the world.  Now we can thank Barry L. Miller for helping us understand how to live within that cycle.  That is the message of his book Know the Time, Change Your World:  The Reappearance of the Seven- and Fifty-Year Biblical Cycles.

Building A Torah Community

Does building a Hebrew Roots community mean moving to the country, shunning electricity, and growing beards like the stereotypical Amish?  Not necessarily, but it does mean association in close proximity with like-minded believers.  (Picture:  Amish Family wallpaper, widehdwalls.com)

Does building a Hebrew Roots community mean moving to the country, shunning electricity, and growing beards like the stereotypical Amish? Not necessarily, but it does mean association in close proximity with like-minded believers. (Picture: Amish Family wallpaper, widehdwalls.com)

Five hundred years ago, in the midst of the great Reformation that gave birth to the various sects of Protestant Christianity, like-minded believers began to seek out one another in the interest of living according to their understanding of God’s instructions from the Bible.  Many, if not most, of these sects found refuge in America, forming the communities we know as Puritan, Separatist (Pilgrim), Quaker, Mennonite, Moravian, Amish, and many others.  In the pre-modern world bereft of electricity, mass communications, and rapid transit, the communities these believers formed often took shape around existing communities where families and congregations began to take advantage of the new translations of the Bible in their native languages.  In time these communities attracted like-minded believers from near and far, bringing growth in population, wealth, and influence to such places as Geneva, Holland, New England, and Pennsylvania.

It would seem that a similar phenomenon is happening today.  The Lord is restoring to His people a Hebraic understanding of the Scriptures which has been obscured for many centuries.  This is the time anticipated by the Prophet Daniel, when many run to and fro and knowledge is increased (Daniel 12:4).  Like the Protestant Reformation, the Torah Awakening is creating a desire among Messianic and Hebrew Roots believers to establish communities where they can associate with like-minded people and live according to their understanding of the Scriptures.  Yet the very aspects which have facilitated the Torah Awakening in this post-modern age are the things that make it more difficult to establish communities.  Here in the West we are well-connected by social media and instantaneous communication which permit us to share ideas with fellow believers across continental distances.  This is a blessing, but it is not a community.  Often it is easier to connect with someone 1,000 miles away than to find fellow Torah-observant disciples of Yeshua in the same county.  When we do find these brethren relatively nearby, what are we to do?  Shall we buy land in common and live in the same house?  Shall we establish a business or a farm together and contribute to our common welfare?  What examples do we have from Scripture, and how has human history and recent experience shaped our understanding of these examples?

These are things we must understand if we are to come together as a nation.  As noted on this blog and elsewhere, this process begins in the local community.  But exactly how do we build these local communities? 

Fortunately, someone who has traveled this path of faith is willing to share his experience.  Zach Bauer of New2Torah recently released a video teaching in which he discusses the subject of a Torah-observant community.  He starts with the example of the community Yeshua’s disciples built according to the book of Acts (Acts 2:42-47, 4:32-37), examining this record in the context of Torah principles.  Along the way he shares some practical lessons on what to do and what not to do.  For those who are considering seriously how to associate more closely with like-minded Hebrew Roots believers, Zach’s teaching is an excellent starting point.
