Did you know that the stone Jacob places at his head and then sets up and anoints after he has his vision of the ladder speaks all about Yeshua (Jesus)? We explore this and other aspects of the relationship between Isaac, Esau and Jacob in our teaching from this past Shabbat.
A Beautiful Mess – Barrenness, Blessing, Birthright and The Stone (December 6, 2014)
One of the biggest points of resistance Christians give when being presented with the continued validity of the Torah and that Yeshua did not come to do away with it is a response that goes something like this. ‘I’ve been fine without all of this Torah or “Jewish” stuff.

The church has done quite well for over 2000 years without the Torah.”
Do you ever feel like everything is a struggle? Like life is wearing you down? Do you feel as if you are suffering injustice? Are you going through a downright fearful time?

“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

Or three! Beautiful music from the record player filled my home and the glow of the tree at night was something I cherished.
