Shabbat Shalom!

Welcome to our Virtual Online Shabbat Service.
We’re pretty new at this whole “virtual church’ thing…

Canceling our Shabbat Service at the Jewish Community Centre may have been the responsible thing to do, and it’s still essential that we make the effort to exercise caution as we resume normal Services!

While we have willingly submited to the ruling Authorities during this time of trial (COVID-19), and we recognise the present need for ongoing social distancing to prevent the virus from spreading to those who are most vulnerable in our Community, the prospect of another week without a proper Shabbat Service is unthinkable.

 

… NO SHABBAT?    NO WAY!

An Introduction

For our regular Mishpocha (that’s Hebrew for “Family”) what follows will be familiar, but if you are visiting us for the first time, there may be little icons like this one Popup trigger which, when clicked, should open a little window offering more information.

Services HAVE Resumed

However, if you are unable to join us live
we will still broadcast Our Shabbat LIVE via ZOOM

”  Join us for a live Service while we study THE WORD together ONLINE via ZOOM.

While we are in lock-down we will meet online at the our usual time of 10:00am
(Perth time – which is +8 GMT) 
and the meeting will begin at 10:10am with the sound of the Silver Trumpets.

Our next meeting will be on Saturday:

Topic: “A New Heart is a Miracle”
Time: Saturday, 6 June, 2020 10:00 AM Perth time

Saturday, 6th of June is a
Holy Convocation as outlined in Leviticus Chapter 23.
So, Let’s all “convocate”… separately…online!

PLEASE NOTE:

You MUST register with us to receive the meeting link for the Zoom Broadcast.  You may use the  REGISTRATION FORM

or contact us directly.

(You only need to register if you are new to the broadcast so we can add you to the email notification that goes out prior to the ZOOM)

Order of Service

Silver Trumpets

We begin each service with the sounding of Silver Trumpets. Why silver trumpets and not the shofar typically blown in many Messianic circles?

In Numbers 10:2, God commanded the people of Israel to make 2 silver trumpets to summon the community.  When both trumpets are sounded in long blasts, the entire community was to gather at the entrance to the tent of the meeting.

As we read in Leviticus 23, Shabbat is the first of the 7 Feasts of the Lord – a holy convocation – and Yeshua is, afterall,  Lord of the Sabbath.

Liturgy

Many churches have different styles of Liturgy and the Messianic Community has its own variation of the traditional liturgy used in Congregations and Synagogues worldwide.

What is Liturgy? Simply put, it is speaking, or singing the Word of God back to The LORD.  It is a mixture of statements of Faith, Praise, and public Declaration of Biblical Truth.

The Liturgy at Beth Yeshua Australia is sung in both Hebrew and English.  The Hebrew is transliterated for ease of pronounciation. 

News & Giving

The NEWS at Beth Yeshua is reported each Shabbat by our intrepid news-hound: Carina. She keeps us up to date on ways to get involved in the local community and in the wider Christian Community as well.

You’ll find a PDF of this week’s News HERE

The giving of Tithes and Offerings is normally done by Direct Deposit into Beth Yeshua Australia’s Bank Account (details on our GIVING page) or placed in the MASSIVE Silver Box (pictured above – Courtesy of Alanthank you Alan) before or after the Service.

Children's Blessing / Lesson

This is the time during the service when we pray for our children and bless them before sending them upstairs for Shabbat School.

We are concerned with the well-being and spiritual development of our children. We feel it is our duty and obligation to teach them about God and His WORD as commanded. (Deuteronomy 4:9-10; Deut. 6:6-25). Our intent is to supplement what parents teach their children at home as well as provide a place where our children can have social interaction with their peers while learning Truth. You will find a RESOURCES to use with your own children HERE.

Psalm

The Psalms are ancient Israel’s Prayer Book. This beautiful collection of prose, poetry and songs of worship and praise are beloved by Jew and Christian alike.

Each week, just prior to Praise & Worship we have a short teaching from one of the 150 Psalms found in the 5 smaller books we know collectively as Psalms.

This is an excellent way of preparing our hearts for worship, and to receive insight and a deeper understanding of The Word of God.  

Praise & Worship

We have a musical faith. Whether it is Moses singing the praises of God in Deuteronomy 32, King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:21, or Paul urging the Ephesians to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, lifting our voices to heaven with praises to our Creator is demonstrated throughout our Bible.

Our worship in modern times may take the form of musicians playing and singing as they lead the congregation in contemporary versions of God’s word set to new tunes , but the heart’s cry extolling the greatness of God is timeless.

The Message

Our approach to The Message is an expository one. In other words, we “dig deep” into the text to expose the meaning, relevance, and application.  This is how the Prophet Ezra taught The People.

This kind of Digging Deep is not something one can do in a 20-minute motivational pep talk. Consequently, our teaching may extend to an hour or more – which was not uncommon in days past. We encourage our Believers to take notes right on the “Berean Call” that is printed ahead of time for just this purpose so that each person can search the scriptures daily, whether those things were so . (Acts 17:11)

Aaron's Blessing

Also known as The Aaronic Benediction, we conclude each service with a blessing spoken and sung over the Congregation by the Congregational Leader.

It is found in Numbers 6:23-26 where God is saying:  “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them,

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance  upon you and give you peace.”
