A Biblical Revival

“Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

REVIVAL! Most of us have prayed for one, but would most of us recognize a true revival if it were occurring in our midst? What can Scripture teach us about revival?

Does Christmas Need Saved?

Coastlands Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Christmas! I used to joke that when I grew up and owned a home that I’d put up so many lights planes would be landing in my yard. I loved everything about the season. Christmas trees? I’ll take two. Or three! Beautiful music from the record player filled my home and the glow of the tree at night was something I cherished.

Welcome to Coastlands Congregation of Messiah

Coastlands Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Coastlands Congregation of Messiah is a gathering of believers in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah located in Washington County, PA.  We meet each Shabbat (That’s Saturday) for fellowship, food and teaching.

We exist to glorify The Creator and encourage one another to conform our lives to the Ways of our King, to walk as our Master Yeshua walked. We desire to be a place to come to for those who realize that there is something more, something missing from what the traditional church system offers.  Those who are ready to experience the depth and riches of the Word of The King.  For those who are beginning to grow frustrated with the contradictions they are noticing between what is typically preached and what the Word says.

We are saved by grace through faith. We uphold that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Hope of Israel, the Promised One, the Messiah.
We seek to align ourselves with how Our Great King instructs us to live in a world that is daily distancing itself from Him. No longer satisfied to simply do things they way they’ve always been done simply because ‘that’s how we’ve always done it,’ rather we seek to audit our beliefs and practices and align them to His perfect instructions and truly become more like Our Master, Yeshua.
We are seeing that the Scriptures are in harmony, from the beginning to the end, and our prayer is in line with that of King David who said, “Open my eyes that I may behold wonderful things from Your Torah.” (Psalm 119:18)

Our name comes from Isaiah 42:1-4 & Isaiah 51:4-5

A man, Greg, is in a long relationship with a woman, Bethany, for many years. They end up breaking up, because he becomes a “God-fearing” man, and Bethany hates religion. The man meets his new wife, Rose, who also fears God, and they get married. However, they live in constant confusion and crisis. He always wants to celebrate her birthday on the day Bethany was born. Rose doesn’t understand this.

Just Follow Him. It’s Rather Simple.

Remember the “WWJD” craze of the 90’s? It seemed like everyone was rocking bracelets, shirts, book covers and who knows what else that was adorned with those fascinating four letters (well, really three), ‘WWJD.’ We’ve come to find that there’s another question that needs to be asked first and it is, “What DID Yeshua (Jesus) Do?” When we can approach the question this way then we can accurately answer “WWJD?” It turns out that we need not look to ourselves for an arbitrary answer. We should be “walking as He walked,” as John said. We need to follow Him.

 

Creation Calls. Are You Listening?

In the Silence, Creation Sings. Are We Listening?
As the power went out twice last evening for extended periods of time, there came a realization of something rather profound. The absence of all lights, music, and fans employed for “white noise” led to something few of us experience. Complete silence. Our lives are filled with noise, both audible and mental, and we rarely stop to be still and just listen.
