  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- I think it
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:46.010

  • And you know the place to
  • 00:00:48.290 --> 00:00:49.240
  • start to understand anything
  • 00:00:49.240 --> 00:00:51.080
  • is the beginning.
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:51.290
  • The truth is, our existence
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:54.190
  • on earth is for a different
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:55.290
  • reason then the scientist

  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:57.210
  • We're here for a purpose.
  • 00:00:57.210 --> 00:00:59.240
  • The Creator put us here and
  • 00:00:59.240 --> 00:01:01.200
  • we need to understand what
  • 00:01:01.200 --> 00:01:02.250
  • His purpose was in creating
  • 00:01:02.250 --> 00:01:04.190
  • us and that's what this
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:05.160
  • series is about.
  • 00:01:05.160 --> 00:01:06.090
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Yeah,
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:06.290
  • wow.
  • 00:01:06.290 --> 00:01:07.170
  • You know there's so much
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:08.050
  • depression and problems, but
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:09.170
  • if we all know who we are
  • 00:01:09.190 --> 00:01:12.190
  • and what we're here for,
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:14.110
  • then we're gonna have the

  • answer to joy and happiness
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:17.130
  • in our life.
  • 00:01:17.130 --> 00:01:18.030
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Baruch
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:24.040
  • Hashem, blessed be the name
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:25.140
  • of the Lord.
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:26.080
  • I'm excited to get into the
  • 00:01:26.080 --> 00:01:28.050
  • first chapter of the book of
  • 00:01:28.050 --> 00:01:29.180
  • Genesis, we call it in
  • 00:01:29.180 --> 00:01:31.020
  • Hebrew Bereshit, the Book of
  • 00:01:31.020 --> 00:01:33.090
  • Beginnings.
  • 00:01:33.090 --> 00:01:33.290
  • We're gonna be looking at
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:35.080
  • Now in this series I want to
  • 00:01:37.290 --> 00:01:39.220
  • look at two separate
  • 00:01:39.220 --> 00:01:40.280
  • aspects.
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:42.000
  • First of all, I want to look
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:43.160
  • at the nuts and bolts of
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:45.060
  • establish in your heart the
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:49.060
  • reason that Father God
  • 00:01:49.060 --> 00:01:51.290
  • created you through Yeshua,
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.190
  • His Son.
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:54.180
  • This is a really deep
  • 00:01:54.180 --> 00:01:56.200
  • series.
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:57.110
  • Beloved ones, let's pray.
  • 00:01:57.110 --> 00:01:58.140
  • Father God in Yeshua's name
  • 00:01:58.140 --> 00:02:00.140
  • I ask You to penetrate the
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:02.200
  • depths of our being with
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:04.140
  • truth.
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:05.150
  • Father, Your word is truth.
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:07.050
  • We ask to receive revelation
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:08.220
  • now, that we would better
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:09.080
  • understand, Father, our
  • 00:02:09.080 --> 00:02:10.160
  • purpose on earth.
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:12.000
  • In Jesus' name and for Your
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:14.070
  • glory.
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:15.100
  • Father we pray that the love
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:16.130
  • of God would birth in our
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:18.100
  • hearts in a greater
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:19.240
  • dimension through the
  • 00:02:19.240 --> 00:02:21.040
  • receiving of Your word.
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:22.230
  • Amen and amen.
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:24.260
  • Once again, we're looking at
  • 00:02:24.260 --> 00:02:26.140
  • two separate areas, or
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:28.180
  • categories.
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:29.180
  • The first one is, I want to
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:30.260
  • go through several verses in
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:32.270
  • the first chapter of the
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:34.080
  • Bible, Genesis chapter 1,
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:36.020
  • and talk about some of the
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:37.170
  • distinctive features of the
  • 00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:39.200
  • creation process.
  • 00:02:39.200 --> 00:02:41.140
  • And then we're gonna look
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:42.230
  • more specifically at verse
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:45.000
  • 26 and 27 of chapter 1, to
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:48.050
  • better understand why it is
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:51.140
  • that the Lord created you
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:53.090
  • and me.
  • 00:02:53.090 --> 00:02:53.290
  • If you think about it, He
  • 00:02:53.290 --> 00:02:55.130
  • created us for a very
  • 00:02:55.130 --> 00:02:56.250
  • specific purpose and if
  • 00:02:56.250 --> 00:02:58.160
  • purpose for life and our
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:02.030
  • destiny, we're gonna have to
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:03.260
  • understand and comprehend
  • 00:03:03.260 --> 00:03:05.210
  • why the Creator chose to
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:07.130
  • birth us in the first place.
  • 00:03:07.130 --> 00:03:09.090
  • flowers fade, but the Word
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:13.220
  • of the Lord, bless His name,
  • 00:03:13.220 --> 00:03:15.250
  • abides forever.
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:17.110
  • Let's go now together,
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:18.250
  • Genesis chapter 1, Bereshit
  • 00:03:18.250 --> 00:03:21.050
  • chapter 1.
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.040
  • We're gonna look there now
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:23.040
  • in verses number 1 through
  • 00:03:23.040 --> 00:03:24.290
  • 3.
  • 00:03:24.290 --> 00:03:25.190
  • Hear the Word of God.
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:27.090
  • "In the beginning God,
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.060
  • Elohim, created the heavens
  • 00:03:29.120 --> 00:03:32.120
  • and the earth."
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:34.240
  • I want to point out certain
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:36.070
  • words here that we glance
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:37.210
  • over and don't fully
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:39.230
  • recognize some of what is
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:41.210
  • intended here.
  • 00:03:41.210 --> 00:03:42.150
  • Let's begin with the word
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:44.060
  • beginning.
  • 00:03:44.060 --> 00:03:45.150
  • "In the beginning," we think
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.160
  • of the beginning and we
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:48.270
  • think of the beginning of
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:49.270
  • creation and I really want
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:51.250
  • to stress to you this word
  • 00:03:51.250 --> 00:03:53.240
  • beginning is the beginning
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:55.180
  • of creation.
  • 00:03:55.180 --> 00:03:56.210
  • It's not the beginning of
  • 00:03:56.210 --> 00:03:58.190
  • God.
  • 00:03:58.190 --> 00:03:59.200
  • God has no beginning.
  • 00:04:00.120 --> 00:04:03.120
  • He's unlimited.
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:04.290
  • He's infinity.
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:06.050
  • He has no starting point.
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:09.000
  • This is what is so unique
  • 00:04:09.000 --> 00:04:10.220
  • about God.
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:11.250
  • He is the only being and we
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:14.170
  • can't even name Him.
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:15.210
  • God is beyond naming,
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:16.290
  • because He's just beyond
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:18.180
  • that.
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:19.080
  • That's why when the Lord
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.120
  • first revealed Himself to
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:21.230
  • Moses in Exodus chapter 3
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:24.020
  • and Exodus chapter 6, Moses
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:26.080
  • bush, "Who should I say sent
  • 00:04:27.170 --> 00:04:29.240
  • me?
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:30.120
  • What's Your name?"
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.290
  • And the Father answered
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.000
  • Moses and said, "I am that I
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:35.170
  • am.
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:36.200
  • In other words, He's beyond
  • 00:04:38.270 --> 00:04:40.150
  • naming.
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:41.240
  • Again, He's beyond fully
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:43.130
  • The Lord said to Moses, "You
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:45.050
  • can see My back, but you
  • 00:04:45.050 --> 00:04:46.290
  • can't see My face."
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:48.130
  • beloved church, we can know
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:51.050
  • God, but there's always more
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:53.180
  • of God.
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:54.100
  • We'll always be discovering
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.240
  • Him.
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:56.120
  • He's so far beyond us.
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:58.150
  • He's so infinite that we
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:05:00.170
  • can't fully ever grasp Him.
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:02.290
  • He's incomprehensible fully,
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:05.170
  • because He's God.
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:07.000
  • He has always been, there's
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:09.070
  • continuously new life
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:11.070
  • bubbling out from Him.
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:12.200
  • He's always more.
  • 00:05:12.200 --> 00:05:14.000
  • He's always more.
  • 00:05:14.000 --> 00:05:15.030
  • He's always more.
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:16.090
  • He's always more and this
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:18.170
  • concept of Him always being
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:20.200
  • more is connected to the
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:23.010
  • term "abundant life" that
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:24.190
  • Jesus used.
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:25.240
  • Jesus said, "I will give you
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:27.150
  • life and I will give it to
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:28.260
  • you more abundantly."
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:31.060
  • that there's always more.
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:34.140
  • You see when you were a
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:35.060
  • child life was so
  • 00:05:35.060 --> 00:05:37.130
  • enthralling, it was such a
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:39.120
  • journey, it was such an
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:40.170
  • adventure when you were
  • 00:05:40.170 --> 00:05:41.250
  • experiencing everything for
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.220
  • the first time; when you saw
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:45.180
  • God's creation for the first
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.090
  • time, when you saw animals
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:49.060
  • for the first time, when you
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:50.220
  • saw the flowers and the
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:52.000
  • sunset, when you had your
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:53.170
  • first boyfriend or
  • 00:05:53.170 --> 00:05:54.180
  • girlfriend, everything was
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:56.100
  • new and you were just so
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:57.270
  • caught up in the drama of
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:05:59.240
  • life.
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:00.160
  • Remember when you were young
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:02.120
  • how long the summers lasted?
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:04.230
  • It seemed like a summer was
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:06.070
  • a whole lifetime.
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:07.210
  • But the older we got, right?
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:09.220
  • We began to lose our sense
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:12.070
  • of adventure.
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:12.270
  • We began to lose our sense
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:14.250
  • of wonder.
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:15.160
  • Summers didn't seem like
  • 00:06:15.160 --> 00:06:17.000
  • they were endless summers
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:18.080
  • anymore.
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:18.280
  • Sometimes we get to the
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:19.270
  • place where we don't even
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:20.280
  • know the seasons anymore,
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:22.060
  • because we're moving so fast
  • 00:06:22.060 --> 00:06:24.120
  • through the details of our
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.170
  • responsibilities.
  • 00:06:25.170 --> 00:06:27.100
  • But you see, what has
  • 00:06:27.100 --> 00:06:28.270
  • happened and the reason that
  • 00:06:28.270 --> 00:06:30.100
  • as we age we lose that sense
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:32.180
  • of wonderment, is because
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:34.230
  • we've seen it before.
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:36.060
  • We've seen the flowers.
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:37.110
  • We've seen the animals.
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:38.230
  • We've had our first
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:39.210
  • boyfriend.
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:40.110
  • We've had our first
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:41.020
  • girlfriend.
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:41.220
  • All the things that were so
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:42.260
  • enthralling when we
  • 00:06:42.260 --> 00:06:44.020
  • experienced them for the
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:44.280
  • first time no longer
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:46.290
  • captivate us the same way,
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:48.240
  • because listen, they're no
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:50.260
  • But God, listen, He's always
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:55.130
  • more and therefore He's
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:57.070
  • always new.
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.030
  • I'm trying to help you
  • 00:06:58.030 --> 00:06:58.230
  • understand.
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:06:59.130
  • talking about the very
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:01.270
  • beginning, because God has
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:03.290
  • no beginning.
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:04.190
  • He's that big.
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:05.290
  • He's that magnificent.
  • 00:07:05.290 --> 00:07:07.240
  • He is the Creator.
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:09.120
  • He is the cause that has no
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:13.040
  • It's impossible, as I've
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:15.090
  • been sharing, for the human
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:16.240
  • mind to grasp this; how God,
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:20.040
  • could have always been, that
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:23.280
  • He came from no where.
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:26.040
  • But in the beginning means
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:28.020
  • it's the beginning of our
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:29.020
  • story.
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:30.000
  • It's the beginning of the
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:31.040
  • formation of the earth.
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:32.240
  • It's the history of mankind.
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:34.290
  • But once again church, God
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.090
  • has no beginning.
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:38.260
  • I want you to be awed by
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:42.170
  • God.
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:43.060
  • I don't want you to ever
  • 00:07:43.060 --> 00:07:44.050
  • lose your sense of
  • 00:07:44.050 --> 00:07:45.090
  • wonderment as to who He is.
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:47.180
  • He is so big beloved, He's
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:49.160
  • beyond religion.
  • 00:07:49.160 --> 00:07:51.140
  • He is God.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:52.190
  • And so when the Lord said to
  • 00:07:52.190 --> 00:07:54.090
  • Moses when Moses said, "What
  • 00:07:54.090 --> 00:07:56.010
  • is your name?"
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.170
  • And God said, "I am who I
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:59.290
  • am.
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:00.290
  • I am that I am and I will be
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:03.220
  • whom I will be."
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:04.150
  • What the Lord was saying to
  • 00:08:04.150 --> 00:08:05.250
  • Moses is, I'm beyond naming.
  • 00:08:06.060 --> 00:08:09.060
  • I'm beyond naming.
  • 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:10.180
  • You see when we name
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:12.040
  • something, when we name
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:13.160
  • somebody, we put ourselves
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:15.090
  • in a position of superiority
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:17.220
  • over that thing that we've
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:19.090
  • named.
  • 00:08:19.090 --> 00:08:20.010
  • When a scientist discovers
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:21.160
  • something they name what
  • 00:08:21.160 --> 00:08:23.090
  • they've discovered.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:24.210
  • God said to Adam, "Name the
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.280
  • animals.
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:27.180
  • I've given you dominion over
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:29.070
  • them."
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:29.270
  • And there's truth in the
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:31.060
  • sense that we know Yeshua's
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:33.080
  • name.
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:33.250
  • We know the name Jesus.
  • 00:08:33.250 --> 00:08:34.250
  • We know the name Yeshua,
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:36.100
  • that was His name in the
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:37.230
  • flesh, right?
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:38.160
  • When He walked upon the
  • 00:08:38.160 --> 00:08:39.200
  • earth 2.000 years ago.
  • 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:41.180
  • And we know that God
  • 00:08:41.180 --> 00:08:43.000
  • revealed to Moses that His
  • 00:08:43.000 --> 00:08:44.270
  • name was Yod-Hey-Vav-Hey,
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:46.200
  • often pronounced YHWH, but
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:49.040
  • the meaning of YHWH is I am
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.160
  • will be.
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:55.280
  • It's from the root word I am
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:58.040
  • or I will be and the unique
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:09:00.130
  • thing about God's name YHWH
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:03.150
  • is that it's not a noun, but
  • 00:09:03.150 --> 00:09:05.050
  • it's a verb.
  • 00:09:05.050 --> 00:09:06.130
  • In the verb tense of
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:07.270
  • form of, listen, continuous
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:13.250
  • unfinished action.
  • 00:09:13.250 --> 00:09:15.270
  • God is always more.
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:17.080
  • He's always you know,
  • 00:09:18.110 --> 00:09:19.070
  • there's just more and more
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:20.220
  • and more and more and more
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:22.120
  • and more and more of God.
  • 00:09:22.120 --> 00:09:24.030
  • We can't just name Him and
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:25.160
  • think He's a static being.
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:26.290
  • He's beyond that beloved.
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:29.090
  • He's beyond that and I hope
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.210
  • you're grasping this,
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:31.200
  • because the scriptures tell
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:33.240
  • us over and over again that
  • 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:34.290
  • we should be awed by God,
  • 00:09:34.290 --> 00:09:37.130
  • that we should fear Him in
  • 00:09:37.130 --> 00:09:38.190
  • the Holy sense of the word.
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:40.160
  • And when we realize that
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:41.190
  • He's infinity, that He has
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:43.050
  • no beginning or no end, that
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:44.290
  • He's the Alpha and the
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:45.280
  • Omega.
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:46.190
  • He's always been.
  • 00:09:46.190 --> 00:09:47.270
  • He always is and He'll
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:49.210
  • always be.
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:50.100
  • We begin to get a sense of
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:52.030
  • how big our creator is in
  • 00:09:52.030 --> 00:09:54.200
  • realizing this.
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:56.140
  • In a deeper way we begin to
  • 00:09:56.140 --> 00:09:58.100
  • marvel and capture that
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:10:00.070
  • sense of awe that our
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:01.240
  • Creator wants us to live in
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:04.090
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:08.240
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:13.140
  • [river running]
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:18.190
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Welcome to
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:19.210
  • today's God Moment.
  • 00:10:19.210 --> 00:10:21.100
  • In this edition, I want to
  • 00:10:21.100 --> 00:10:22.080
  • devotional that I put out
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:25.090
  • called "Seeds of Revelation."
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:27.110
  • Today we're gonna be looking at
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:29.000
  • John's first letter in the
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:30.200
  • "Behold, what manner of love
  • 00:10:33.070 --> 00:10:35.190
  • the Father has given unto us
  • 00:10:35.190 --> 00:10:38.020
  • that we should be called the
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:40.080
  • we are." I want to encourage
  • 00:10:43.060 --> 00:10:45.040
  • us for a second just to
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:46.070
  • pause and focus on this.
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:48.000
  • Sometimes when we've heard
  • 00:10:48.000 --> 00:10:48.260
  • a Scripture before it's easy
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:50.190
  • that when we hear it,
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:51.190
  • it just kind of rolls off
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:52.170
  • our back like water off
  • 00:10:52.170 --> 00:10:53.210
  • a duck's back. But what
  • 00:10:53.210 --> 00:10:55.130
  • John is focusing on,
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:57.080
  • in Hebrew it's called
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:10:58.080
  • kavanah, to focus,
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:10:59.190
  • to give attention to,
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:00.280
  • is that we are literally
  • 00:11:00.280 --> 00:11:02.270
  • God's children. And John
  • 00:11:02.270 --> 00:11:05.190
  • says this is an incredible
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:07.050
  • love that's come upon us,
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:09.080
  • that's been bestowed upon us,
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:10.260
  • that we should be called,
  • 00:11:10.260 --> 00:11:12.290
  • beloved ones, the children
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:14.220
  • of God, you and I, and
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:17.020
  • such we are. This is real.
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:19.290
  • When you are I truly
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:21.090
  • identify with Father God,
  • 00:11:21.090 --> 00:11:23.210
  • knowing that He truly is
  • 00:11:23.210 --> 00:11:25.140
  • our Father, that we're
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:26.240
  • born of Him, and that
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.120
  • because we're born of Him
  • 00:11:28.120 --> 00:11:29.140
  • His nature is in us,
  • 00:11:29.140 --> 00:11:31.180
  • and that we're gonna become
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:32.160
  • exactly like Him, conformed
  • 00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:34.020
  • to the image of His son,
  • 00:11:34.020 --> 00:11:35.200
  • it will put us on a whole
  • 00:11:35.200 --> 00:11:37.010
  • new trajectory in life.
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:38.280

  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Getting
  • 00:12:28.190 --> 00:12:29.040
  • back to verse number 1 in
  • 00:12:29.040 --> 00:12:30.060
  • the book of Genesis, or
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:31.040
  • Bereshit.
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:31.270
  • "In the beginning," it's not
  • 00:12:31.270 --> 00:12:32.260
  • the beginning of God, right?
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.080
  • It's the beginning of human
  • 00:12:34.080 --> 00:12:35.180
  • "In the beginning God
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:38.110
  • created the heavens and the
  • 00:12:38.110 --> 00:12:39.240
  • earth."
  • 00:12:39.240 --> 00:12:40.120
  • I want to focus now church,
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:42.210
  • on the Hebrew word in verse
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.100
  • number 1 for God.
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:45.260
  • Once again we read, "In the
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.180
  • beginning God."
  • 00:12:47.180 --> 00:12:49.100
  • Now the Hebrew word that's
  • 00:12:49.100 --> 00:12:51.120
  • used here in the Torah, in
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:53.080
  • the original text, is the
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:12:55.010
  • Elohim is the plural form of
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:02.080
  • the word El and the word El
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:05.250
  • is God.
  • 00:13:05.250 --> 00:13:07.150
  • we find that God refers to
  • 00:13:09.240 --> 00:13:11.210
  • Himself, listen now, in the
  • 00:13:11.210 --> 00:13:13.050
  • plural.
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:14.040
  • If He referred to Himself in
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:15.160
  • the singular it would say,
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:16.290
  • in the beginning El, God
  • 00:13:16.290 --> 00:13:19.080
  • created the heavens and the
  • 00:13:19.080 --> 00:13:20.140
  • earth.
  • 00:13:20.140 --> 00:13:21.040
  • But it doesn't say El, it
  • 00:13:21.040 --> 00:13:22.100
  • "In the beginning Elohim,"
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:25.150
  • God's plural, "created the
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:27.240
  • heavens and the earth."
  • 00:13:27.240 --> 00:13:28.270
  • Now we know there's only one
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:30.290
  • God.
  • 00:13:30.290 --> 00:13:31.200
  • In fact the greatest
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:33.020
  • Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai
  • 00:13:35.070 --> 00:13:37.220
  • Eloheinu, That's related to
  • 00:13:37.220 --> 00:13:39.250
  • this word Elohim.
  • 00:13:39.250 --> 00:13:40.230
  • It means Our God.
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:42.040
  • Eloheinu, means our God;
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:44.250
  • Elohim, God plural.
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:48.130
  • Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:51.120
  • Eloheinu Adonai echad.
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:53.050
  • What that means is, Hear O
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:54.280
  • Israel, the Lord our God,
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:58.120
  • Eloheinu, our God, the Lord
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:01.270
  • is one.
  • 00:14:01.270 --> 00:14:03.150
  • So once again, we're
  • 00:14:03.150 --> 00:14:05.020
  • affirming the oneness of
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:07.060
  • God.
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:07.250
  • So if God is one, if there's
  • 00:14:07.250 --> 00:14:09.120
  • only one God, why then does
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:12.160
  • the scripture say here, "In
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:14.030
  • the beginning Elohim," God
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:16.090
  • plural, "created the heavens
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:17.290
  • and the earth?"
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:19.030
  • And the reason is beloved
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:21.000
  • ones, is because of the
  • 00:14:21.000 --> 00:14:22.110
  • multiplicity of the nature
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:25.090
  • Within God, listen now,
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:28.070
  • there is relationship.
  • 00:14:28.070 --> 00:14:30.020
  • God, listen now, is
  • 00:14:30.020 --> 00:14:31.260
  • He's manifested Himself,
  • 00:14:34.070 --> 00:14:35.190
  • listen, as Father, Son and
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:38.220
  • Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:38.220 --> 00:14:39.250
  • He's one and yet He's
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:41.260
  • multidimensional.
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:43.110
  • We read for example, that
  • 00:14:43.110 --> 00:14:45.060
  • when the Lord created man,
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:47.010
  • He created man, we read here
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:48.250
  • in the first chapter, the
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:51.010
  • 27th verse that He created
  • 00:14:51.010 --> 00:14:52.110
  • man, listen, "Male and
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.020
  • female, He created them
  • 00:14:54.160 --> 00:14:57.160
  • in His own image."
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:14:58.230
  • So within God there is both
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:01.070
  • the masculine and the
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:03.040
  • feminine.
  • 00:15:03.040 --> 00:15:04.030
  • God is both male and female.
  • 00:15:04.030 --> 00:15:06.090
  • We know in the scriptures
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:07.130
  • that He's referred to as He,
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:09.010
  • which is the Father part of
  • 00:15:09.080 --> 00:15:12.080
  • God, the masculine part of
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:13.260
  • God.
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:14.160
  • But God also has feminine
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:16.060
  • attributes.
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:16.250
  • Once again, verse 27, "God
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:18.240
  • created man in His own
  • 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:20.020
  • image.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:20.210
  • In the image of God He
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:21.200
  • created Him male and
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:24.050
  • female."
  • 00:15:24.050 --> 00:15:24.230
  • And so the female nature is
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:26.160
  • also part of God's nature.
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:28.140
  • The point is, that within
  • 00:15:28.140 --> 00:15:30.070
  • God there's a
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:31.220
  • multidimensional aspect.
  • 00:15:31.220 --> 00:15:34.170
  • He's Father, Son and Holy
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:36.210
  • Spirit.
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:37.190
  • He has revealed Himself to
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:39.190
  • us as male and female in the
  • 00:15:39.190 --> 00:15:41.050
  • creation of humankind.
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:42.280
  • And so we read here in the
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:44.130
  • first verse, "In the
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:45.080
  • beginning Elohim," God
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:46.230
  • And the reason He's referred
  • 00:15:47.270 --> 00:15:49.170
  • to in the plural, is because
  • 00:15:49.170 --> 00:15:51.080
  • of the relationship that
  • 00:15:51.080 --> 00:15:53.100
  • exists within Him between
  • 00:15:53.100 --> 00:15:55.140
  • the different parts of His
  • 00:15:55.140 --> 00:15:57.280
  • nature.
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:15:58.210
  • Let me say that again, you
  • 00:15:58.210 --> 00:15:59.260
  • The reason God is referred
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:03.210
  • to in the plural in verse
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:05.030
  • number 1 of the first verse
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:06.180
  • of our Bible, "In the
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:08.000
  • beginning God, Elohim
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:09.280
  • created the heavens and the
  • 00:16:09.280 --> 00:16:10.280
  • earth."
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:11.180
  • The reason that He's
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:12.210
  • referred to in the plural is
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:14.190
  • because of the fact that the
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:16.000
  • plural reflects the
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:17.200
  • multidimensional nature of
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:21.150
  • His person, that within Him
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:24.180
  • there's a multidimensional
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:27.170
  • element that there are
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:28.240
  • different parts of Him all
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:30.170
  • contained in His oneness.
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:32.260
  • And for this reason if you
  • 00:16:32.260 --> 00:16:34.270
  • look with me for a second in
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:36.160
  • the 26th verse of the same
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:38.150
  • chapter, Elohim, once again
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.220
  • God plural, Elohim; "Then
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:42.270
  • God said," listen, "let us."
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:46.180
  • Why does He use the word us?
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:48.050
  • Focus on the word us.
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:49.130
  • "Then God said, "let us."
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:52.200
  • Why did God say us?
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:54.220
  • Who is He talking to?
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.000
  • Listen again.
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:56.290
  • "Then God said, "Let us."
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.200
  • You see us speaks of what?
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:01.020
  • Relationship and it's
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:02.120
  • plural.
  • 00:17:02.120 --> 00:17:03.130
  • It's you and me, right?
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:04.240
  • "God said, "Let us make man
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:07.180
  • in our image."
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:09.110
  • Once again the word our
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:11.140
  • speaks of more than one.
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:13.060
  • There's only one God, but
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:14.240
  • within the Godhead, within
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:16.210
  • God, there's a
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:18.010
  • multidimensional projection
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:21.200
  • and essence of His person.
  • 00:17:21.200 --> 00:17:23.230
  • There's relationship
  • 00:17:23.230 --> 00:17:25.170
  • within Him, that the
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:26.190
  • Father's relating to the
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:28.030
  • Son, who's in His bosom;
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:29.260
  • that there's a male and
  • 00:17:29.260 --> 00:17:30.220
  • female aspect of God that's
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:32.250
  • all contained in the
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:33.230
  • Godhead.
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:34.210
  • God is one, but there's once
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:36.120
  • again a multidimensional
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:38.160
  • nature to His person.
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:40.040
  • And so God said, "Let us,"
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.200
  • plural, "make man in our,"
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:43.140
  • plural, "image."
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:44.240
  • Now I know this is a lot to
  • 00:17:44.240 --> 00:17:45.280
  • grasp, but be aware I'm
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:48.000
  • sticking accurately to the
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:50.270
  • Biblical text here.
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:52.280
  • You're asking yourself, this
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:54.090
  • is like doesn't make sense.
  • 00:17:54.090 --> 00:17:55.230
  • How can God be one and yet
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:58.210
  • be multidimensional?
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:00.150
  • How can God be one and yet
  • 00:18:00.150 --> 00:18:02.150
  • He's manifested Himself as
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:04.000
  • Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:07.000
  • How can God be one and yet
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:09.040
  • He's got both male and
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:10.230
  • female aspects that are in
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:12.190
  • relationship within Him?
  • 00:18:12.190 --> 00:18:14.280
  • Beloved, it's beyond
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:16.270
  • comprehension, because God
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:19.140
  • thoughts are above your
  • 00:18:22.140 --> 00:18:23.140
  • thoughts and my ways are
  • 00:18:23.140 --> 00:18:25.170
  • above your ways, even as the
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:27.200
  • heavens are higher than the
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:29.040
  • Don't expect to understand
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:31.130
  • this.
  • 00:18:31.130 --> 00:18:32.030
  • Let me ask you this question
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.030
  • church to put it in
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.000
  • perspective, can you
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:35.200
  • understand how God has
  • 00:18:36.270 --> 00:18:39.270
  • always been?
  • 00:18:39.270 --> 00:18:42.030
  • We can only ask the
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:42.280
  • question, "Well where did
  • 00:18:42.280 --> 00:18:44.050
  • He come from?"
  • 00:18:44.050 --> 00:18:45.070
  • We can't comprehend how He's
  • 00:18:45.070 --> 00:18:47.270
  • always been.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:49.110
  • We function through the laws
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:50.220
  • of cause and effect.
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:18:51.280
  • We think, "But how did He
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:53.060
  • get here?
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:53.260
  • Where did He come from?"
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:55.130
  • But you see, God is beyond
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:58.080
  • our ability to fully know,
  • 00:18:58.080 --> 00:19:00.110
  • because He's spirit and He's
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:02.090
  • so far above us beloved
  • 00:19:02.090 --> 00:19:04.160
  • ones, that we'll never fully
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:06.260
  • grasp Him and that's what
  • 00:19:06.260 --> 00:19:08.200
  • makes it so exciting and
  • 00:19:08.200 --> 00:19:10.230
  • that's what puts you and I
  • 00:19:10.230 --> 00:19:12.160
  • in awe of Him.
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:14.090
  • God loves you.
  • 00:19:14.090 --> 00:19:15.030
  • We're gonna continue this
  • 00:19:15.030 --> 00:19:16.060
  • study.
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:16.260
  • I've got so much more for
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:18.160
  • you.
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:19.060
  • I'm gonna reveal to you from
  • 00:19:19.060 --> 00:19:20.100
  • the first chapter of Genesis
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:22.000
  • why you were created.
  • 00:19:22.000 --> 00:19:23.090
  • Tune in for the next
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.100
  • broadcast.
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:25.040
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- What a
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:30.290
  • great broadcast today.
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:32.210
  • Rabbi I love how you just
  • 00:19:33.090 --> 00:19:36.090
  • You expand us into the width
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:40.000
  • and the depths of God, of
  • 00:19:40.000 --> 00:19:41.090
  • course none of us can fully
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:42.270
  • go that far.
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:44.080
  • But I love the Spirit of God
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:45.160
  • in you that has equipped you
  • 00:19:45.160 --> 00:19:47.020
  • to help us as we are
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:49.020
  • listening and grabbing a
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:50.080
  • hold of the teaching, expand
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:52.240
  • our mind out of the boxes
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:54.070
  • that we put God into; to
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:56.030
  • understand the expanses that
  • 00:19:56.030 --> 00:19:58.240
  • God is.
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:19:59.140
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- I mean,
  • 00:19:59.140 --> 00:20:00.030
  • we'll never really know how
  • 00:20:00.030 --> 00:20:01.170
  • big He is, because there's
  • 00:20:01.170 --> 00:20:02.150
  • always more of Him.
  • 00:20:02.150 --> 00:20:04.000
  • We'll never come to a place
  • 00:20:04.000 --> 00:20:05.030
  • where we can like see God in
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.180
  • such a way that He's in this
  • 00:20:06.180 --> 00:20:07.160
  • box that we see Him in,
  • 00:20:07.160 --> 00:20:08.240
  • because He's so far beyond
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.270
  • that all we can do is
  • 00:20:10.270 --> 00:20:12.000
  • continue to receive new
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.080
  • revelation from Him.
  • 00:20:13.080 --> 00:20:14.230
  • He's beyond our fully ever
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.150
  • grasping.
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:17.090
  • we'll always know Him,
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:19.150
  • because we're in
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:20.060
  • relationship with Him.
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:20.250
  • But we'll never fully know
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:22.120
  • Him, because there's always
  • 00:20:22.120 --> 00:20:23.130
  • more of Him.
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:24.020
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- I used
  • 00:20:24.020 --> 00:20:25.000
  • faith was boring.
  • 00:20:26.120 --> 00:20:27.060
  • You know go to church, sing
  • 00:20:27.060 --> 00:20:28.240
  • this is just the Spirit of
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:32.260
  • God living active, always
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:34.130
  • bubbling up with something
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:35.200
  • new.
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:36.100
  • It's just, it has no
  • 00:20:36.100 --> 00:20:37.190
  • beginning, no end.
  • 00:20:37.190 --> 00:20:39.070
  • riches for us.
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.020
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- And helps
  • 00:20:42.020 --> 00:20:43.060
  • us understand why in the
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:44.160
  • scriptures whenever someone
  • 00:20:44.160 --> 00:20:45.180
  • encountered the Lord, the
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:46.240
  • response was they fell on
  • 00:20:46.240 --> 00:20:48.050
  • their face.
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:49.070
  • I mean He's so much bigger
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:50.260
  • than our puny religion.
  • 00:20:50.260 --> 00:20:52.160
  • I mean this is God we're
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:53.220
  • talking about.
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:54.130
  • This is a living reality and
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:57.120
  • God's calling us out of
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:58.120
  • religion to know Him.
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:21:00.130
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Right.
  • 00:21:00.130 --> 00:21:01.050
  • You know one of the things
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:02.020
  • you spoke of was how Elohim
  • 00:21:02.020 --> 00:21:04.260
  • "Let us make man in our
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:09.220
  • image."
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:10.110
  • to see how God is one.
  • 00:21:12.270 --> 00:21:14.290
  • The Jews sometimes,
  • 00:21:14.290 --> 00:21:16.030
  • sometimes your friends and
  • 00:21:16.030 --> 00:21:17.180
  • brothers and sisters will
  • 00:21:17.180 --> 00:21:18.130
  • say, "Well I believe in one
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:19.180
  • God, not your multiple
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:21.130
  • Gods."
  • 00:21:21.130 --> 00:21:22.030
  • But they don't understand
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.180
  • that they're, the one God is
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:25.030
  • spoken of, of having that
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:26.130
  • plurality in Elohim.
  • 00:21:26.130 --> 00:21:28.000
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- We've
  • 00:21:28.000 --> 00:21:28.290
  • received the scriptures from
  • 00:21:28.290 --> 00:21:30.100
  • the Jewish people.
  • 00:21:30.100 --> 00:21:31.120
  • Messiah Himself came as a
  • 00:21:31.120 --> 00:21:32.290
  • Jew.
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:33.260
  • And yet the Jewish people
  • 00:21:33.260 --> 00:21:36.020
  • need to come into the
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:36.280
  • understanding that Yeshua
  • 00:21:36.280 --> 00:21:38.170
  • Hamashiach really is the
  • 00:21:38.170 --> 00:21:40.080
  • Messiah and that the truth
  • 00:21:40.080 --> 00:21:41.250
  • that He proclaimed is the
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:43.100
  • truth indeed.
  • 00:21:43.100 --> 00:21:44.110
  • In fact it was interesting
  • 00:21:44.110 --> 00:21:45.160
  • when Jesus was on earth,
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:47.080
  • many that observed His
  • 00:21:47.080 --> 00:21:48.100
  • ministry said, "This man
  • 00:21:48.100 --> 00:21:49.230
  • teaches with authority, not
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:51.220
  • as our leaders do, not as
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.100
  • the scribes and pharisees
  • 00:21:53.100 --> 00:21:54.170
  • do."
  • 00:21:54.170 --> 00:21:55.070
  • When Jesus said, "Truly,
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.090
  • truly I say to you," He was
  • 00:21:56.090 --> 00:21:57.280
  • revealing the fullness of
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:59.210
  • God.
  • 00:21:59.210 --> 00:22:00.110
  • chapter 1, it says that in
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.150
  • times past the Lord spoke to
  • 00:22:02.150 --> 00:22:04.140
  • the Hebrew people through
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.130
  • the fathers in the prophets
  • 00:22:05.130 --> 00:22:07.050
  • in many portions and in
  • 00:22:07.050 --> 00:22:08.140
  • many ways, but in these last
  • 00:22:08.140 --> 00:22:10.040
  • days have spoken to us
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:11.040
  • whom the world was created
  • 00:22:12.120 --> 00:22:13.250
  • and whom is the exact
  • 00:22:13.250 --> 00:22:14.240
  • representation of His
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:15.190
  • nature.
  • 00:22:15.190 --> 00:22:16.060
  • You see Jesus came to bring
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:18.260
  • us into relationship with
  • 00:22:18.260 --> 00:22:20.240
  • the limitless God, who's
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:23.060
  • glory goes on forever and
  • 00:22:23.060 --> 00:22:26.020
  • ever and ever.
  • 00:22:26.020 --> 00:22:27.180
  • This is not about religion
  • 00:22:27.180 --> 00:22:29.010
  • [], this is about
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:29.210
  • reality.
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:30.150
  • This is about relationship
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:31.290
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:36.060
  • Not long ago Cynthia and I
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:37.240
  • spent a month in Israel and
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.130
  • the reason I went there was
  • 00:22:39.130 --> 00:22:40.280
  • primarily just to focus on
  • 00:22:40.280 --> 00:22:43.050
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:22:43.050 --> 00:22:44.070
  • I was studying the Torah,
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:45.170
  • the first five books of our
  • 00:22:45.170 --> 00:22:46.170
  • Bible, Genesis through
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:47.280
  • Deuteronomy.
  • 00:22:47.280 --> 00:22:48.280
  • And I was astonished at how
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:50.220
  • precisely Father God spoke
  • 00:22:50.220 --> 00:22:53.120
  • into every area of the
  • 00:22:53.120 --> 00:22:55.080
  • children of Israel's lives.
  • 00:22:55.080 --> 00:22:56.190
  • I mean He addressed it all;
  • 00:22:56.190 --> 00:22:58.110
  • how to dress, what to eat,
  • 00:22:58.110 --> 00:23:00.180
  • how to handle yourself in
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:01.230
  • business, every area of
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:03.170
  • life, even about
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:04.160
  • safeguarding their property.
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:06.070
  • the law, but beloved, let's
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:08.280
  • not throw out the baby with
  • 00:23:08.280 --> 00:23:10.100
  • God wants to be involved in
  • 00:23:11.130 --> 00:23:13.060
  • every area of our lives and
  • 00:23:13.060 --> 00:23:15.020
  • obviously this includes our
  • 00:23:15.020 --> 00:23:16.220
  • finances.
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:17.090
  • If this ministry beloved, is
  • 00:23:17.090 --> 00:23:20.050
  • blessing you, if it's
  • 00:23:20.050 --> 00:23:21.100
  • challenging you, if it's
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:22.220
  • affecting you; I want to ask
