  • The Synagogue and The Church
    Friday, April 14, 2023
    Acts 18 says "He departed from there and went to the house of a certain man named Justus, a worshiper of God, whose house was next to the synagogue." Right there, by the synagogue, were the God-fearing gentiles. Those who would begin the church of Corinth. Where did the church start? Right next to the synagogue. This faith we call Christianity is the Messianic faith, which was started right outside the synagogue. It was clearly a Jewish faith branching out. Paul ministered there, right next to the synagogue. Christianity's roots have always been inherently Jewish; a daughter of Israel. In Ephesians it says, "You are now of Messiah, citizens of Israel." The fact is, you are now a child of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. You have been grafted in by His Spirit. Rejoice in the fact that, in Messiah, you are now one of the children of Israel in Spirit. You don't replace Israel. You are a part of Israel. You are of the house that is right next door to the synagogue.
    From Message #1278 - Sukkat Daveed
    Today's Mission
    Today spend time in prayer for the people of Israel, that they will recognize Messiah. Give thanks that you are a part of the whole house of Israel.
