Rabbi JB to Beth Messiah

In January, after 2 years of preparation, careful thought, prayer, dialogue and strategic planning, January is going to be the month we are fully trusting God to rekindle the fire He first began here two years ago. It will be the spiritual counterpart of Chanukah or Dedication as we receive the oil for the Menorah in the Temple and in the New Covenant Temple, WE ARE THAT TEMPLE!  The Menorah in the Temple in Jerusalem was lit eternally and so it is with us.  Yeshua told us, “You are the Light of the World’.  January is launch month and a month of basic training.  It will be a month of receiving the Lord’s power, passion and wisdom to lead many to righteousness and make them disciples who also will lead many to righteousness and make disciples who will also lead many to righteousness and make disciples who will also lead many to righteousness and make disciples and so on and so on for the rest of our lives! This IS THE RACE WE ARE CALLED TO RUN! It’s when we will re-sharpen our swords and engage in spiritual boot camp. But we are trusting the Lord will work through us in a sustainable dimension so that we will grow in our commitment to be salt and light as a way of life going forward. Beginning January, we will go out into the harvest BUT CONTINUE sowing and reaping in February, March, April, May… until the end of the age.

We corporately are setting sail like our Messianic Jewish fathers before us, as a fishing boat. Our goal? To take Sarasota for the Lord, the Jewish people first. This is what January is all about.
