Mikdash Meh’at in The Woodlands, Texas, is indeed a “Little Sanctuary”, but we have big meals.
1And I, my brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech, nor did I declare to you the Sod of Elohim in wisdom. 2For I did not pretend to know anything among you except Yeshua HaMashi’akh, and Him executed on the stake. 3And I was with you with much reverence for Elohim and in trembling. 4And my speech and my declaration were not with enticing words of wisdom, but in demonstration of HaRu’akh and of power, 5so that your trust might not rest in the wisdom of men, but in the power of Elohim.
The POWER of G-d is in transformed lives. The most powerful miracle of ALL creation is when someone comes to SALVATION in Messiah Yeshua. For that light to continue to burn is the next most extravagant miracle our Creator does, and He leaves it to us to bring it to pass.
There are plenty of options from which to choose when choosing with whom you fellowship. We do NOT come with enticing words, with the most excellent building, or the most skillful music, with lights, glitz, glamor, etc. But our pursuit is the PATHWAY of YESHUA the Messiah.
Believers today are so scattered. There is so much variation in doctrine and worship. Return to “HaDerekh”, “The Way”, the path that Yeshua followed. That path is NOT easy!
51Remember, Adonai, the taunt of Your servants; how I do bear in my bosom [the taunt of] so many peoples; 52Wherewith Your enemies have taunted, O יהוה , wherewith they have taunted the footsteps of Your Mashi’akh. ~Tehillah 89
We want to “overcome”, we want to have “Nitzakhon!” VICTORY! CONQUEST! And it is HIS WORD that gives us victory!
12Adonai gives the word; those who declare the good news are a great army. ~Tehillah 68
11This is a true saying, “For if we die with Him, we shall also live with Him: 12if we suffer, we shall also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; 13but if we trust not in Him, yet He will still remain faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.” 14You should keep these things in remembrance as a testimony before Adoneinu, that the faithful should not argue over words in which there is no profit, but which are destruction to those who listen to them. 15Strive to conduct yourself perfectly before Elohim, as a soldier without reproach, and one who declares straightforwardly D’var HaEmet. [The Word of Truth] ~ Tim Bet 2
The Torah is “D’var HaEmet”, and all scripture derives from it, and is faithful to it. This is how one ‘rightly divides’, or ‘straightforwardly declares’ His Word, by understanding the foundation of it, The Torah.. But, that declaration also has to come with CONDUCT becoming of a Son of God. This is where people today are failing. Our Messiah said, “Happy are those who are pure in their hearts, for they shall see Elohim.”
You are not saved yet: you are BEING saved! You are being purified. IF you remain in HIM, no matter HOW HARD it gets to be SO DIFFERENT from this world [the people in it, and it’s/their way of thinking].
