  • As you know emunah is the
  • 00:00:35.170 --> 00:00:36.210
  • And you were sharing with me
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:39.110

  • righteousness and how that's
  • 00:00:44.140 --> 00:00:46.090
  • CYNTHIA CHNEIDER- Yeah,

  • wow.
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:48.220
  • The Holy Spirit was speaking
  • 00:00:48.220 --> 00:00:49.190
  • to me about all of our
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:51.060
  • experiences in life are to
  • 00:00:51.060 --> 00:00:53.070
  • to train us up in, in

  • trials, our fires we go
  • 00:01:00.270 --> 00:01:02.270

  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.220

  • you today and He is training
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:14.110
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Shalom and
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:20.110
  • God bless you beloved ones,
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:21.220
  • my name's Rabbi Schneider.
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:23.060
  • Sometimes people ask what am
  • 00:01:23.060 --> 00:01:24.080
  • I doing when I go like this.
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:25.280
  • What that is, is a symbolic
  • 00:01:25.280 --> 00:01:28.070
  • prophetic outflow of the
  • 00:01:28.070 --> 00:01:29.290
  • Word of God.
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:31.050
  • The Bible says, "That the
  • 00:01:31.050 --> 00:01:32.010
  • active and sharper than a
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:36.140
  • So this is the Word of God
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:39.060
  • that's coming at God's
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:40.020
  • people like a sword, to
  • 00:01:40.020 --> 00:01:41.200
  • strengthen us, cleanse us
  • 00:01:41.200 --> 00:01:43.160
  • and cause us to become
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:44.120
  • complete in Yeshua
  • 00:01:44.120 --> 00:01:45.210
  • We are in a series today
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:49.140
  • that I'm calling, Principles
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:52.010
  • of Emunah.
  • 00:01:52.010 --> 00:01:53.140
  • word for faith.
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:57.160
  • Before I begin to talk about
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:58.240
  • the principles, I want to
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:01:59.270
  • It's a bit of review for
  • 00:02:01.240 --> 00:02:02.240
  • last week, but beloved,
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:04.040
  • these are very important
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:06.190
  • precepts.
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:07.240
  • is not simply agreeing or
  • 00:02:10.250 --> 00:02:13.050
  • even affirming certain
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:15.010
  • points of doctrine.
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:16.260
  • differences between Judaism
  • 00:02:18.210 --> 00:02:21.210
  • and some people that claim
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:23.020
  • to represent the Christian
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:24.090
  • faith.
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:25.150
  • Some people think that
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:26.280
  • they're Christians just
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:28.140
  • because they give mental
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:29.290
  • assent to certain facts.
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:32.040
  • They say, "Yes I believe
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:33.210
  • that the Bible's true."
  • 00:02:33.210 --> 00:02:35.060
  • It's an intellectual assent
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:36.230
  • to them.
  • 00:02:36.230 --> 00:02:37.190
  • "I believe this and I
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:38.160
  • believe this."
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:39.160
  • In other words, they're
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:40.120
  • affirming certain points of
  • 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:41.200
  • doctrine, but Biblical
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:43.230
  • faith, Biblical emunah, is
  • 00:02:43.290 --> 00:02:46.290
  • not just about affirming
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:48.270
  • certain things as being
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.140
  • true.
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:52.030
  • trust and active clinging to
  • 00:02:55.190 --> 00:02:58.190
  • God.
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.050
  • believe a certain doctrine,
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:04.160
  • it's another thing to truly
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:06.280
  • trust God.
  • 00:03:06.280 --> 00:03:08.220
  • You see trust brings us into
  • 00:03:08.220 --> 00:03:10.230
  • relationship, so Biblical
  • 00:03:10.230 --> 00:03:12.260
  • emunah carries with it both
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:15.000
  • belief and trust.
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:17.170
  • Furthermore, Biblical emunah
  • 00:03:17.250 --> 00:03:20.250
  • carries with it the concept,
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:23.080
  • listen now church, of
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:24.290
  • clinging.
  • 00:03:24.290 --> 00:03:26.190
  • Those that truly believe in
  • 00:03:26.190 --> 00:03:29.060
  • God in a way that brings
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:31.010
  • them into relationship,
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.100
  • listen, cling to Him.
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:35.130
  • We have to cling to him.
  • 00:03:35.130 --> 00:03:37.030
  • those that take refuge under
  • 00:03:38.220 --> 00:03:40.220
  • People can believe God is
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.180
  • who He says He is, but if
  • 00:03:45.180 --> 00:03:47.100
  • they're not leading their
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:48.140
  • lives depending on Him,
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:51.040
  • clinging to Him moment by
  • 00:03:51.040 --> 00:03:53.010
  • moment, they're not walking
  • 00:03:53.010 --> 00:03:55.170
  • in trust and they're not
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.080
  • walking in relationship.
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:03:59.070
  • They're simply walking in a
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:01.040
  • mental assent.
  • 00:04:01.040 --> 00:04:03.090
  • And so this is why Jesus
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:05.110
  • said, "You say you believe
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:07.150
  • He said, "Even the demons
  • 00:04:08.170 --> 00:04:10.050
  • believe in God."
  • 00:04:10.050 --> 00:04:11.270
  • taking Him in to our life
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:17.160
  • and trusting Him and
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:19.050
  • clinging to Him.
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:21.060
  • emunah is a gift of the
  • 00:04:23.170 --> 00:04:24.290
  • spirit.
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:26.090
  • The Bible tells us in
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:27.080
  • "That by grace we've been
  • 00:04:29.030 --> 00:04:30.160
  • saved," listen now, "through
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:33.030
  • faith and the faith that
  • 00:04:33.030 --> 00:04:35.030
  • us," the scripture says, "is
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:38.080
  • a gift from God."
  • 00:04:38.080 --> 00:04:40.170
  • Have you ever experienced
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:41.270
  • something in your life that
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.000
  • you just had a faith
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:44.250
  • suddenly come upon you that
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:46.090
  • something was gonna happen?
  • 00:04:46.090 --> 00:04:47.260
  • You just all of a sudden
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:48.290
  • received an ability to
  • 00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:50.090
  • believe for something, you
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:52.060
  • don't even know why you were
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:53.130
  • suddenly able to believe it
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:55.180
  • and sure enough what you
  • 00:04:55.180 --> 00:04:56.220
  • believed for happened.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:04:59.020
  • Where did you get that from?
  • 00:04:59.020 --> 00:05:00.220
  • Beloved, that faith was
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:02.000
  • imparted to you by the
  • 00:05:02.000 --> 00:05:03.280
  • Spirit.
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:05.130
  • And faith that saves is
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:07.110
  • imparted by the Spirit.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.260
  • It's a spiritual thing.
  • 00:05:09.260 --> 00:05:11.260
  • says that faith is a
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:13.170
  • substance.
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:14.200
  • impartation of the Ruach
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:18.030
  • Hakodesh, that causes life
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:20.150
  • to come into our hearts and
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:21.220
  • it connects us to God.
  • 00:05:21.220 --> 00:05:23.270
  • It connects us to
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:25.040
  • It makes us alive.
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.120
  • And so faith is a substance.
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:30.080
  • It's an impartation that we
  • 00:05:30.080 --> 00:05:32.070
  • receive to the spirit to
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:33.270
  • connect with God in
  • 00:05:33.270 --> 00:05:35.200
  • relationship and it affects
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:37.240
  • our mind and it affects our
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:39.140
  • actions.
  • 00:05:39.140 --> 00:05:40.130
  • We are now in something
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:41.280
  • called faith and this faith
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:43.280
  • that we're in is literally,
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.200
  • listen now, the substance of
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:48.080
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:51.020
  • It's the substance, faith is
  • 00:05:51.020 --> 00:05:52.160
  • the substance of the Holy
  • 00:05:52.160 --> 00:05:53.260
  • Spirit.
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:54.190
  • It connects us to God.
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:56.040
  • I want to talk now about
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.160
  • certain aspects or precepts
  • 00:05:58.210 --> 00:06:01.230
  • of what happens in our minds
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:04.090
  • and in the way we walk when
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.190
  • we're brought into this
  • 00:06:05.190 --> 00:06:06.280
  • relationship with God
  • 00:06:06.280 --> 00:06:07.250
  • through faith and therefore
  • 00:06:07.250 --> 00:06:08.260
  • our thoughts are affected.
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:10.240
  • How are our thoughts affected
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:13.220
  • by the substance of faith?
  • 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:15.050
  • Number one, we have a
  • 00:06:15.050 --> 00:06:17.020
  • believe, listen now, that
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:20.000
  • God rules the world.
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:23.140
  • You see people that are
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:24.060
  • can't see that God rules the
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:27.270
  • world.
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.020
  • Often times what they see in
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:31.030
  • the larger picture is chaos.
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:33.040
  • They look at all the
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:33.280
  • negative things that happen
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:35.000
  • in the world and they focus
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.090
  • on those things.
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:37.120
  • And they say, "God's not
  • 00:06:37.120 --> 00:06:38.180
  • ruling the world, look at
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:39.220
  • all the chaos."
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:41.130
  • But the truth is, Biblical
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:43.120
  • emunah affirms that yes,
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:46.230
  • Hebrew way to refer to God,
  • 00:06:48.100 --> 00:06:50.010
  • is ruling the world.
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:51.100
  • The Creator is ruling the
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:53.040
  • He hasn't taken His hands
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:55.180
  • off His creation.
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:58.020
  • He's not far off somewhere.
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:06:59.160
  • He's intimately involved
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.240
  • with His creation and He's
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:03.100
  • ruling the earth.
  • 00:07:03.100 --> 00:07:05.140
  • And as I said on last week's
  • 00:07:05.140 --> 00:07:06.070
  • broadcast, when you look
  • 00:07:06.070 --> 00:07:07.180
  • into the Torah, when you
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:09.140
  • look into the Tanakh, the
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:10.170
  • Hebrew Bible, you see how
  • 00:07:10.170 --> 00:07:12.290
  • responsible God is for so
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:15.010
  • many of the things that
  • 00:07:15.010 --> 00:07:15.200
  • happen; not just the good
  • 00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:17.150
  • things, but the bad things.
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:20.030
  • Who opened up the earth
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:21.290
  • [] in an earthquake to
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:22.280
  • swallow Korah and his sons?
  • 00:07:22.280 --> 00:07:25.060
  • God did.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:26.160
  • When the children of Israel
  • 00:07:26.160 --> 00:07:27.170
  • were bit by the serpents in
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:28.230
  • the wilderness for their
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.290
  • unfaithfulness to their God,
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:32.080
  • who caused the serpents to
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.100
  • bite them?
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:34.070
  • The Torah tells us God did.
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:37.060
  • We read over and over again
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:39.020
  • that even David when he
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.180
  • sinned against the Lord by
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.020
  • taking a census of Israel
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:43.150
  • and as a result of his
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:44.210
  • sinning against God, what
  • 00:07:44.210 --> 00:07:46.120
  • happened?
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:47.220
  • God caused a plague to come
  • 00:07:47.220 --> 00:07:49.240
  • against Israel and thousands
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:51.100
  • of them died.
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:52.230
  • You see we read, if we
  • 00:07:52.230 --> 00:07:53.180
  • really believe that the
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:54.120
  • whole Bible is the Word of
  • 00:07:54.120 --> 00:07:55.280
  • God, not just the New
  • 00:07:55.280 --> 00:07:57.130
  • Testament, but the whole
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:07:58.100
  • Bible; we see that when we
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:59.260
  • study the Torah and the
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:01.070
  • Tanakh, that God is
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:02.120
  • responsible for many of the
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:04.020
  • crisis that happened, many
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:06.040
  • of the curses that came upon
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:07.190
  • the people in the land.
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:09.120
  • Again, when God drowned the
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:11.120
  • world in a flood because of
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:12.170
  • their sin, who was
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:14.140
  • responsible for the flood?
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:15.240
  • The scripture said that God
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.000
  • covered the earth with the
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:17.290
  • waters.
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:18.230
  • Why?
  • 00:08:18.230 --> 00:08:19.250
  • world of filth.
  • 00:08:21.180 --> 00:08:23.170
  • And so Biblical emunah
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:25.230
  • affirms God is ruling the
  • 00:08:25.230 --> 00:08:26.260
  • world.
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:27.230
  • We may not understand
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:28.160
  • affirm He is in fact Hashem,
  • 00:08:30.080 --> 00:08:32.180
  • He's the Creator and He's
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:33.220
  • ruling the world.
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:35.090
  • Number two, Biblical faith
  • 00:08:35.090 --> 00:08:37.290
  • affirms that everything that
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:40.170
  • everything that our God and
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:44.010
  • Father is doing through the
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:45.000
  • Lord Jesus Christ; His ruler
  • 00:08:45.000 --> 00:08:47.070
  • ship, listen now, is for the
  • 00:08:47.070 --> 00:08:49.130
  • good.
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:51.060
  • God is doing, even though it
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:53.190
  • may look bad, is for the
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:54.190
  • good.
  • 00:08:54.190 --> 00:08:55.280
  • When we look again at the
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:56.260
  • example [] of God
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:58.250
  • covering the earth with
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:08:59.210
  • water and drowning
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:01.110
  • everything on the planet
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:02.240
  • except for Noah and his
  • 00:09:02.240 --> 00:09:04.150
  • family and the animals he
  • 00:09:04.150 --> 00:09:05.110
  • took into the ark, some
  • 00:09:05.110 --> 00:09:06.180
  • would say, "How could that
  • 00:09:06.180 --> 00:09:07.130
  • possibly be good?" if they had
  • 00:09:07.130 --> 00:09:08.160
  • no vision.
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:10.040
  • If they only saw it in the
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:10.230
  • moment, all they would see
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:12.060
  • is a natural disaster.
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:13.200
  • They could say, "How could
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:14.230
  • this be good?"
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:16.190
  • But when we take a step back
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:17.170
  • we say, "It was good."
  • 00:09:17.170 --> 00:09:20.090
  • Because it was God's way of
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:21.180
  • cleansing the earth of sin
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:23.030
  • and violence and starting
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:24.030
  • over with Noah and his
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:26.160
  • family.
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:27.200
  • I used the illustration last
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:29.020
  • week that if you for
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:30.240
  • example, go to the airport
  • 00:09:30.240 --> 00:09:33.110
  • and you go to get your
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:34.250
  • airline ticket and you check
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:36.020
  • in there and they say the
  • 00:09:36.020 --> 00:09:37.070
  • flight is booked and you get
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:38.200
  • so upset, because you're
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:40.060
  • gonna miss your appointment
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.090
  • in the city you were flying
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:42.120
  • to.
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:43.090
  • And you think, "How could
  • 00:09:43.090 --> 00:09:43.290
  • this be good?"
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:44.250
  • All you could feel is
  • 00:09:44.250 --> 00:09:45.140
  • frustration and anger.
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:46.260
  • But what happens if a few
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:48.040
  • hours later, if you find out
  • 00:09:48.040 --> 00:09:49.260
  • that that plane that you
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:51.070
  • were booked in gets in a
  • 00:09:51.070 --> 00:09:52.100
  • plane crash and
  • 00:09:52.100 --> 00:09:54.230
  • get killed?
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:09:56.210
  • Then what would you do?
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:57.200
  • You'd give thanks to God.
  • 00:09:57.200 --> 00:09:58.280
  • You'd give glory to God and
  • 00:09:58.280 --> 00:10:00.060
  • you'd give Him credit for
  • 00:10:00.060 --> 00:10:01.290
  • keeping you from getting on
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:03.000
  • that plane.
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:04.040
  • one that kept you from
  • 00:10:05.100 --> 00:10:06.070
  • getting on the plane.
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.160
  • The point is beloved, we
  • 00:10:07.160 --> 00:10:08.270
  • don't always see the full
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:10.080
  • picture.
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.130
  • So let's not get caught up
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:13.010
  • in pride.
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.250
  • Let's recognize that God is
  • 00:10:14.250 --> 00:10:16.200
  • ruling the world, that He's
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:17.260
  • a good God and that it's all
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:20.020
  • for the good.
  • 00:10:20.020 --> 00:10:21.160
  • And let's take a step back
  • 00:10:21.160 --> 00:10:23.100
  • and affirm that, even when
  • 00:10:23.100 --> 00:10:25.270
  • we don't understand it.
  • 00:10:25.270 --> 00:10:28.050
  • In fact, often times people
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:29.130
  • that are trapped in the
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:30.120
  • powers of darkness, they see
  • 00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:32.120
  • more evil in the world then
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:34.120
  • they do good in the world.
  • 00:10:34.120 --> 00:10:36.140
  • They watch the news every
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:37.050
  • day, all they do is hear
  • 00:10:37.050 --> 00:10:38.170
  • about the killings and the
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:39.210
  • murders and the poison in
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:42.040
  • the political spectrum and
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.270
  • the you know the natural
  • 00:10:43.270 --> 00:10:46.170
  • disasters in other parts of
  • 00:10:46.170 --> 00:10:47.140
  • the earth.
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:48.130
  • And day after day they're
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:49.100
  • fed that diet of negativism,
  • 00:10:49.100 --> 00:10:51.190
  • destruction, killing and
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.140
  • suffering and they begin to
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:54.260
  • walk around thinking the
  • 00:10:54.260 --> 00:10:56.090
  • world is a bad place.
  • 00:10:56.090 --> 00:10:58.180
  • But the truth is beloved,
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:10:59.270
  • when you look in the world,
  • 00:10:59.270 --> 00:11:01.220
  • 99% of what's going on in
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:03.110
  • the world is good.
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:05.010
  • We see God, [] all the
  • 00:11:05.010 --> 00:11:06.080
  • different people that we
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:07.020
  • meet, beloved, that we have
  • 00:11:07.020 --> 00:11:08.120
  • connection with, that we
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:09.200
  • have relationship with, that
  • 00:11:09.200 --> 00:11:11.070
  • we can smile at, the
  • 00:11:11.070 --> 00:11:12.240
  • pleasant food that we taste,
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.200
  • it gives us pleasure when we
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:15.240
  • taste the food in our mouth,
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:17.200
  • the ability to experience
  • 00:11:17.200 --> 00:11:18.270
  • God's goodness, to be able
  • 00:11:18.270 --> 00:11:20.060
  • to wake up in the morning
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:21.170
  • and see the sun shining, to
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:23.090
  • see the beautiful plants and
  • 00:11:23.090 --> 00:11:24.200
  • animals, the flowers and the
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:26.080
  • butterflies; If we'll take
  • 00:11:26.080 --> 00:11:27.170
  • the blinders off and see
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:28.290
  • with God's eyes, we'll see
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:30.130
  • that the vast majority of
  • 00:11:30.130 --> 00:11:31.270
  • what we see in the world is
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:32.260
  • good.
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:34.280
  • God, beloved, is causing
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:36.080
  • everything to happen []
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:38.140
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:47.020
  • 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:51.240
  • [river running]
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:53.090
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Welcome to
  • 00:11:53.090 --> 00:11:54.070
  • I wanna introduce you today
  • 00:11:55.190 --> 00:11:57.070
  • to my weekly devotional called,
  • 00:11:57.070 --> 00:11:58.260
  • Seeds of Revelation.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:00.130
  • I'm gonna be focusing right now
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:02.140
  • In this scripture we hear this,
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:07.030
  • "In Him," speaking of Father,
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:08.260
  • speaking of HaShem, "In Him,"
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:10.160
  • Paul says, "we live and
  • 00:12:10.160 --> 00:12:13.110
  • consider the fact that right now
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:19.060
  • you and I, listen, are in God?
  • 00:12:19.240 --> 00:12:22.240
  • We don't have to go somewhere
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:24.010
  • to find Him, we don't have to
  • 00:12:24.010 --> 00:12:25.220
  • look up into the heavens to
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:27.010
  • pull Him down. Right now,
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:28.280
  • the scripture says, we live
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.240
  • and move and exist in Him.
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:32.220
  • The problem isn't that He's
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.010
  • so far away, the problem is
  • 00:12:34.010 --> 00:12:36.080
  • He's so close, we don't open
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:38.210
  • up our eyes to see Him.
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:40.280
  • Beloved, He's closer to you and
  • 00:12:40.280 --> 00:12:42.170
  • I than our next heartbeat.

  • Every breath that we receive
  • 00:12:46.040 --> 00:12:48.090
  • literally is coming from Him.

  • Jesus said, "even to the end."
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:11.190
  • Let's open up our hearts to the
  • 00:13:11.190 --> 00:13:13.280

  • truth can help us. Just
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:41.240
  • like we need to eat meals
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:43.070
  • every day, physical food to
  • 00:13:43.070 --> 00:13:45.060
  • keep our bodies strong,
  • 00:13:45.060 --> 00:13:46.250
  • so we need God's Word,
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:48.040
  • beloved, to stay alive and
  • 00:13:48.040 --> 00:13:49.230
  • healthy in Him. This is
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.050
  • Rabbi Schneider saying
  • 00:13:51.050 --> 00:13:52.110
  • Baruch HaShem, I love you.
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:53.240
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- So we've
  • 00:13:59.120 --> 00:14:00.040
  • seen that the first
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:01.120
  • principle of emunah, is that
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:03.110
  • God is ruling the world.
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:06.120
  • We have to believe that.
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:07.170
  • It's not just happening.
  • 00:14:07.170 --> 00:14:08.290
  • Things aren't just randomly
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:10.030
  • happening.
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:10.250
  • No, God is ruling the earth.
  • 00:14:10.250 --> 00:14:13.030
  • Number two, we saw not only
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:15.160
  • is He ruling the earth, but
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:17.170
  • He's doing something good.
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:20.000
  • What He's doing has a good
  • 00:14:20.000 --> 00:14:20.290
  • purpose, even if we can't
  • 00:14:20.290 --> 00:14:22.170
  • see it at the time.
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:24.000
  • a plant loses a branch,
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:29.030
  • let's say that there's a
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:29.220
  • hail storm that happens and
  • 00:14:29.220 --> 00:14:32.100
  • it causes the, a part of the
  • 00:14:32.100 --> 00:14:35.020
  • plant to be cut off; what
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:37.280
  • will often happen is, the
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:39.210
  • plant will be spurred to new
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:41.100
  • growth, because that part of
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.150
  • the plant was trimmed off.
  • 00:14:43.150 --> 00:14:45.220
  • And so too it is with us.
  • 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:47.000
  • Sometimes something bad
  • 00:14:47.000 --> 00:14:47.240
  • happens and if we just focus
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.060
  • on the bad thing that
  • 00:14:49.060 --> 00:14:50.000
  • happens, we'll think it's a
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:50.270
  • bad thing.
  • 00:14:50.270 --> 00:14:51.230
  • "How could this be for
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:52.100
  • good?"
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:53.020
  • But the reality is most of
  • 00:14:53.020 --> 00:14:54.210
  • you will look back at your
  • 00:14:54.210 --> 00:14:55.230
  • life and see that so many of
  • 00:14:55.230 --> 00:14:57.120
  • the things that you thought
  • 00:14:57.120 --> 00:14:58.100
  • were the bad things that
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:14:59.100
  • happened, ended up launching
  • 00:14:59.100 --> 00:15:01.170
  • you into something much
  • 00:15:01.170 --> 00:15:02.190
  • better than what you had.
  • 00:15:02.190 --> 00:15:04.200
  • In other words, difficulty
  • 00:15:04.200 --> 00:15:06.000
  • is the mother of invention.
  • 00:15:06.000 --> 00:15:07.210
  • And so a lot of times, once
  • 00:15:07.210 --> 00:15:08.160
  • again, God is pruning us.
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:10.110
  • It might look like something
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:11.010
  • bad is happening, but God is
  • 00:15:11.010 --> 00:15:12.210
  • just getting ready to launch
  • 00:15:12.210 --> 00:15:13.290
  • something good.
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:15.230
  • Every time that the Jewish
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:16.190
  • people suffered persecution,
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:18.170
  • you know what the result
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:19.040
  • was?
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:19.240
  • They came out stronger.
  • 00:15:19.240 --> 00:15:21.060
  • They came out stronger.
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.120
  • God is doing something good.
  • 00:15:22.120 --> 00:15:24.100
  • Don't misunderstand, I don't
  • 00:15:24.100 --> 00:15:25.100
  • mean to seem insensitive.
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:27.070
  • I know that things happen in
  • 00:15:27.070 --> 00:15:28.170
  • life that are very hurtful
  • 00:15:28.170 --> 00:15:30.070
  • and painful and I'm not
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:31.080
  • minimizing that at all.
  • 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:33.010
  • I'm simply trying to affirm
  • 00:15:33.010 --> 00:15:34.040
  • our belief that Hashem, that
  • 00:15:34.040 --> 00:15:36.080
  • God's ruling the world and
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:37.230
  • that He's got a good plan,
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:38.230
  • that He's doing something
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:39.150
  • good.
  • 00:15:39.150 --> 00:15:40.200
  • And then thirdly and
  • 00:15:40.200 --> 00:15:41.120
  • finally, in terms of these
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:42.280
  • state that God has a purpose
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:47.190
  • in what He's doing.
  • 00:15:47.190 --> 00:15:49.110
  • be atheists in the world say
  • 00:15:50.270 --> 00:15:52.120
  • that there's no purpose,
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:53.290
  • that life is random.
  • 00:15:53.290 --> 00:15:55.210
  • In fact that's a new, hip
  • 00:15:55.210 --> 00:15:56.290
  • word that many of our
  • 00:15:56.290 --> 00:15:58.090
  • millennials use now in
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.100
  • conversation.
  • 00:15:59.100 --> 00:16:00.240
  • "Oh what happened?
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:02.080
  • Oh it was just random."
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.280
  • Random, it's the new word,
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.100
  • random.
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:06.140
  • But life is not random,
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:08.070
  • because God is ruling the
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:09.100
  • world.
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:10.150
  • He's doing everything for
  • 00:16:10.150 --> 00:16:11.290
  • the good and He's got a
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:13.130
  • purpose.
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.220
  • You see the scripture
  • 00:16:14.220 --> 00:16:15.170
  • actually tells us, Paul
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:17.050
  • Word of God, that God is
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:21.000
  • causing all things to work
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.160
  • that love Him and are called
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.270
  • according to His purpose,
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:29.180
  • that we might be conformed
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:31.170
  • to the image of His Son."
  • 00:16:31.170 --> 00:16:34.020
  • Do you see the principles
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:35.080
  • that I'm teaching rooted in
  • 00:16:35.080 --> 00:16:36.220
  • the Word of God, even in
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:37.270
  • that one simple statement
  • 00:16:37.270 --> 00:16:39.160
  • that Paul made; that God is
  • 00:16:39.160 --> 00:16:41.020
  • causing all things to work
  • 00:16:41.020 --> 00:16:43.070
  • together for good and that
  • 00:16:43.070 --> 00:16:45.130
  • the purpose of these things
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:46.290
  • that He's doing, is to cause
  • 00:16:46.290 --> 00:16:49.070
  • us, listen now, to be
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:50.230
  • conformed to the image of
  • 00:16:50.230 --> 00:16:53.140
  • Yeshua Hamashiach, of Jesus
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:56.130
  • His Son.
  • 00:16:56.130 --> 00:16:57.280
  • So what does that mean for
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:16:58.210
  • you and I?
  • 00:16:58.210 --> 00:16:59.210
  • It means we have to have a
  • 00:16:59.210 --> 00:17:00.240
  • different approach to life.
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:03.000
  • It means we have to first of
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:04.070
  • all, wake up every day and
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:05.250
  • not be afraid, not be afraid
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:07.180
  • of anything.
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:08.250
  • Fear nothing but God.
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:12.120
  • Fear nothing but God.
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:17.210
  • Why?
  • 00:17:20.070 --> 00:17:21.030
  • Because God is ruling the
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:21.280
  • world.
  • 00:17:21.280 --> 00:17:23.010
  • You're not at the vulnerable
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:24.230
  • hands of randomness.
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.010
  • You're not in a vulnerable
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:28.130
  • position in life.
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:29.060
  • Why?
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:30.070
  • He's ruling the world.
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:34.050
  • Secondly, you can wake up
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:35.120
  • every day and fear nothing,
  • 00:17:35.120 --> 00:17:37.260
  • because no matter what
  • 00:17:37.260 --> 00:17:39.140
  • happens, listen now, it's
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.100
  • all for the good.
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:43.040
  • If you lose your job, guess
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.050
  • It's for the good.
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:46.270
  • If something happens today
  • 00:17:46.270 --> 00:17:48.070
  • that causes a little bit of
  • 00:17:48.070 --> 00:17:49.060
  • pain, you know what?
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:50.270
  • Give thanks and believe it's
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:52.200
  • for the good, because God is
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:54.230
  • causing all things to work
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:57.090
  • together for good.
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:59.240
  • God takes everything that
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.070
  • happens in the lives of His
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:03.130
  • Godly ones, in the lives of
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:05.140
  • His elect and He causes it
  • 00:18:05.140 --> 00:18:07.080
  • all to work for good.
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:09.020
  • Nothing's wasted and nothing's
  • 00:18:09.020 --> 00:18:10.240
  • lost.
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:11.230
  • So every day you can wake
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:12.220
  • up, say, " I will fear
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:14.000
  • nothing but God."
  • 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:15.230
  • Knowing that He's ruling the
  • 00:18:15.230 --> 00:18:16.190
  • earth and that everything
  • 00:18:16.190 --> 00:18:17.230
  • that happens in your life
  • 00:18:17.230 --> 00:18:18.270
  • today He's gonna use for the
  • 00:18:18.270 --> 00:18:20.080
  • good.
  • 00:18:20.080 --> 00:18:21.040
  • And finally beloved,
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:22.180
  • everything that Hashem is
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.010
  • doing; Again Hashem is just
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:25.180
  • another way to refer to our
  • 00:18:25.180 --> 00:18:26.180
  • Creator.
  • 00:18:26.180 --> 00:18:27.130
  • It's a Hebrew expression, it
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:28.140
  • means the name, the holy
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:29.180
  • name of our Creator.
  • 00:18:29.180 --> 00:18:31.070
  • doing, listen now, is for a
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.160
  • purpose.
  • 00:18:34.160 --> 00:18:35.210
  • The world is not running on
  • 00:18:35.210 --> 00:18:36.280
  • The universe is not running
  • 00:18:38.040 --> 00:18:39.110
  • on its own.
  • 00:18:39.110 --> 00:18:40.180
  • God is overseeing it all.
  • 00:18:40.180 --> 00:18:43.100
  • He's involved in all of it.
  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:44.230
  • He's involved intimately
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:46.120
  • He's involved intricately
  • 00:18:48.000 --> 00:18:50.250
  • and intimately with your
  • 00:18:50.250 --> 00:18:52.050
  • life and everything that
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:54.060
  • He's doing is for a purpose.
  • 00:18:54.060 --> 00:18:55.270
  • Jesus said, "Not a sparrow
  • 00:18:56.020 --> 00:18:59.020
  • falls to the ground apart
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:01.150
  • So you can wake up every day
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:05.180
  • fearing nothing and no one
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:07.020
  • but God; Again, knowing He's
  • 00:19:07.020 --> 00:19:08.260
  • ruling your life.
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:09.290
  • He's ruling the world.
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:11.080
  • Everything that's happening
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:12.040
  • in the earth and everything
  • 00:19:12.040 --> 00:19:13.030
  • that's happening in your
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:13.220
  • life, He's using it for

  • good.
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:15.220
  • And number three, it's all
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:17.050
  • got a purpose and nothing is
  • 00:19:17.050 --> 00:19:19.190
  • being wasted.
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:21.110
  • So let's practice emunah.
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:23.190
  • Let's practice faith.
  • 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:25.090
  • Let's walk in joy.
  • 00:19:25.090 --> 00:19:27.030
  • Let's walk in thanksgiving.
  • 00:19:27.030 --> 00:19:29.020
  • Let's walk in a positive
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:30.220
  • attitude, because you know
  • 00:19:30.220 --> 00:19:32.200
  • what?
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:33.160
  • When we have Biblical faith,
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.270
  • when we have true emunah,
  • 00:19:34.270 --> 00:19:36.240
  • our general disposition is
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:38.220
  • that we're gonna be happy.
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:40.090
  • We're gonna have joy.
  • 00:19:40.090 --> 00:19:41.160
  • I'm not saying we're gonna
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:42.080
  • be like laughing all the
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:43.070
  • time, but I'm gonna say
  • 00:19:43.070 --> 00:19:44.230
  • there's gonna be a joy
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:45.290
  • within our hearts, because
  • 00:19:45.290 --> 00:19:47.110
  • we know that God is
  • 00:19:47.110 --> 00:19:49.110
  • accomplishing His purpose in
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:51.000
  • us and for us and all the
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:53.180
  • circumstances that we walk
  • 00:19:53.180 --> 00:19:54.200
  • through He's using for good
  • 00:19:54.200 --> 00:19:56.270
  • to bless us.
  • 00:19:56.270 --> 00:19:57.270
  • This produces joy.
  • 00:19:57.270 --> 00:19:59.260
  • This produces freedom and
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:01.270
  • it's part of saving faith.
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:04.090
  • Jesus loves you beloved.
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:06.090
  • Jesus was afraid of nothing
  • 00:20:06.090 --> 00:20:08.030
  • and nobody and He wants you
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:10.050
  • and I to live the same way.
  • 00:20:10.050 --> 00:20:12.010
  • He wants us to be like He
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:13.090
  • was, afraid of nothing, with
  • 00:20:13.090 --> 00:20:16.060
  • full confidence that His
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:17.210
  • Father was overseeing His
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:19.220
  • life and involved in all the
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:22.290
  • minutiae, in all the
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:24.150
  • details.
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:25.150
  • If you and I can rise to
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:27.060
  • this place beloved, we're
  • 00:20:27.060 --> 00:20:28.180
  • gonna walk in victory and
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:30.090
  • we're gonna be light to the
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:31.290
  • world.
  • 00:20:31.290 --> 00:20:32.200
  • People are looking for
  • 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:34.030
  • somebody to follow and God
  • 00:20:34.030 --> 00:20:35.220
  • wants to use you to be His
  • 00:20:35.220 --> 00:20:37.080
  • light.
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:38.130
  • So walk in emunah.
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:40.020
  • Walk in faith.
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:41.100
  • You're gonna be blessed and
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.140
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- I think
  • 00:20:48.230 --> 00:20:49.150
  • there's several principles
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:50.090
  • that we can take away from
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:51.000
  • But honey the principle I
  • 00:20:52.080 --> 00:20:53.050
  • want to focus on, to kind of
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:54.130
  • throw back to our listeners,
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:56.170
  • need to cling to God.
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:21:00.060
  • Remember trusting is
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:01.240
  • clinging to Him.
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:02.230
  • It's believing Him in such a
  • 00:21:02.230 --> 00:21:04.050
  • way that we're truly
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:05.150
  • depending on Him.
  • 00:21:05.150 --> 00:21:07.030
  • Tell me, maybe there's
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:07.250
  • something in your life that
  • 00:21:07.250 --> 00:21:09.030
  • would help our viewers to be
  • 00:21:09.030 --> 00:21:11.040
  • able to relate in a real
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:12.010
  • flesh and blood way to this
  • 00:21:12.010 --> 00:21:12.290
  • concept.
  • 00:21:12.290 --> 00:21:13.190
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Yeah and
  • 00:21:13.190 --> 00:21:14.100
  • even as I've spoken before,
  • 00:21:14.100 --> 00:21:15.230
  • He's training us up in this.
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:17.210
  • You know He says our faith
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:18.180
  • mustard seed and as we go in
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:22.030
  • this journey with Him, He
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:23.090
  • trains us up in faith to
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:25.080
  • is trust worthy, that our
  • 00:21:27.010 --> 00:21:28.060
  • faith can grow as we cling
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:30.070
  • to Him.
  • 00:21:30.070 --> 00:21:31.040
  • RABBI SCHNEDIER- You know
  • 00:21:31.040 --> 00:21:31.240
  • that's the concept when
  • 00:21:31.240 --> 00:21:32.170
  • James says that we go
  • 00:21:32.170 --> 00:21:33.150
  • various trials that our
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:35.010
  • faith would be refined as
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:36.170
  • gold in the fire.
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:38.120
  • So what Father's doing, is
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:39.160
  • He's training us up in
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:41.030
  • faith.
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:41.230
  • Again, not just
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:42.180
  • doctrines, but clinging to
  • 00:21:43.280 --> 00:21:46.130
  • the living God who's a
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:48.130
  • person and wants us to know
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:50.070
  • Him through trust.
  • 00:21:50.070 --> 00:21:51.170
  • I've learned that through
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:53.030
  • the trials, through the
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:54.140
  • trials an example for me is
  • 00:21:54.140 --> 00:21:56.040
  • when our daughters were
  • 00:21:56.040 --> 00:21:57.020
  • getting married and in their
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:21:58.070
  • wedding is a lot of stress,
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.180
  • a lot of anxiety, trying to
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:00.190
  • make everything perfect.
  • 00:22:00.190 --> 00:22:01.260
  • And as I trusted in the ways
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:03.170
  • of the world the anxiety got
  • 00:22:03.170 --> 00:22:04.270
  • worse.
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:06.030
  • But as I put my trust in
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:07.230
  • him, as I clung to Him for
  • 00:22:07.230 --> 00:22:09.020
  • Him to overwhelm us with His
  • 00:22:09.020 --> 00:22:11.170
  • sovereignty over those
  • 00:22:11.170 --> 00:22:12.160
  • weddings, He was faithful to
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:15.060
  • make it beautiful and
  • 00:22:15.060 --> 00:22:16.020
  • perfect.
  • 00:22:16.020 --> 00:22:17.060
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- The only
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:17.280
  • way to overcome fear in our
  • 00:22:17.280 --> 00:22:19.170
  • lives is if we trust Hashem,
  • 00:22:19.170 --> 00:22:21.200
  • if we trust God.
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:22.290
  • I used the word Hashem, it's
  • 00:22:22.290 --> 00:22:23.260
  • just the name of God.
  • 00:22:23.260 --> 00:22:24.290
  • God's name is so beautiful
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:26.140
  • you don't want to just say
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:27.060
  • it all the time commonly.
  • 00:22:27.060 --> 00:22:29.010
  • So a beautiful way to show
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:29.280
  • Hashem, or Hashem, bless His
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:32.190
  • name, the name of the
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:34.050
  • Creator.
  • 00:22:34.050 --> 00:22:35.110
  • vulnerable in this world.
  • 00:22:36.070 --> 00:22:37.110
  • The world's a dangerous
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.140
  • place.
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:39.150
  • We don't have control over
  • 00:22:39.150 --> 00:22:40.130
  • our environment often times,
  • 00:22:40.130 --> 00:22:42.060
  • but through trusting in God
  • 00:22:42.060 --> 00:22:43.200
  • beloved, we can have []
  • 00:22:43.200 --> 00:22:44.260
  • peace, because He reigns and
  • 00:22:44.260 --> 00:22:46.230
  • He's always good and looking
  • 00:22:46.230 --> 00:22:48.150
  • Beloved, as 2019 is coming to a close, I simply want to ask you,
  • 00:22:52.270 --> 00:22:59.220
  • if you have been helped by Discovering the Jewish Jesus over the last year,
  • 00:22:59.220 --> 00:23:03.110
  • and haven't been supporting it financially, would you be open in your spirit
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:08.160
  • to seeing if the Lord will speak to you about making a financial gift
  • 00:23:08.160 --> 00:23:12.160
  • to Him through Discovering the Jewish Jesus?
  • 00:23:12.160 --> 00:23:14.160
  • It costs us a lot of money to do what we're doing, and the only way we can do it
  • 00:23:14.160 --> 00:23:20.030
  • is when people that are being blessed by the ministry, financially support it.
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:23.250
  • You see Christian television is different than ordinary secular television
  • 00:23:23.250 --> 00:23:28.000
  • because programmers like myself on Christian television,
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:31.010
  • we have to pay for our air time. So it's only with your help beloved ones,
  • 00:23:31.010 --> 00:23:34.280
  • that i can continue to broadcast. Galatians 6:6 says,
  • 00:23:34.280 --> 00:23:38.240
  • "Those that are being taught the Lord through a ministry, should support that ministry that's teaching them.
  • 00:23:38.240 --> 00:23:43.230
  • I'm simply asking, if you're being blessed, would you make an offering to the Lord through DJJ?
