— Description of the End-Times Church: "... those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus (Yeshua)." - Revelation 14:12
— "... Sin is Lawlessness." - 1 John 3:4
— "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome." - 1 John 5:3
— Jesus (Yeshua) enacted The New Covenant at the Lord's Supper saying:
“This is my blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” - Matthew 26:28
Quoting From the New Covenant, God said in Jeremiah 31:33:
“I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
Every time we partake of the Lord's Supper/Communion we are re-dedicating ourselves to the New Covenant.
The Hebrew Roots Movement is a general term used for an emerging grassroots spiritual awakening taking place worldwide with Christians returning to the original first century faith, beliefs, and understanding of the Scriptures as taught by the Messiah, Early Church and Apostles. Hebrew Roots is not a denomination or church, but rather a mindset seeking to emulate Jesus (Y'shua) as much as possible.
[ 1 John 2:6 | Luke 6:40 ]
Hebrew Roots Christians are sometimes called "Whole Bible Believers" due to our teaching of and obedience to the whole Word of God (Old and New Testaments). We follow the first-century foundation of the faith: that every disciple of Jesus (Y'shua) is to walk (live) just as the he did, in obedience to the Old Testament laws and commandments of God.
The Apostle John stated in 1 John 3:4 "sin is lawlessness" (violation of God's laws and commandments) and in 1 John 5:3 "For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome." For as King David and Paul remarked: The Law is a Delight. [ Psalm 1:1-2 | Psalm 40:8 | Psalm 119:174 | Romans 7:22 ]
OBEDIENCE, SO SIMPLE A CHILD CAN DO IT.
When the Bible states: "and the LORD says..." or "Jesus (Y'shua) said..." and it is a command, then we are without excuse and should obey God because we love and trust in him and want to please him. God wants everyone to be in right relationship with him, even little children.
HEBREW ROOTS DOES NOT INCLUDE: Messianic Judaism; Teachings from Judaism (Pharisee-ism), Talmud (Oral Law), or Kabbalah; anti Apostle Paul teachings; the Black Hebrew Israelite Movement; or the Sacred Name Movement (which uses the Hebrew names of God and Jesus in an exclusionary and divisive way).
Torah Beach Fellowship is a bunch of sold-out disciples for Jesus (Y'shua) who love God with all their heart, who love and encourage one another in the walk, and who deeply desire to produce Holy Fruit and to add others into the Kingdom. We tend to be very informal, laid back, but serious about Kingdom work.
On occasion we organize local gatherings for various reasons like 'fellowship' (hang-out) times, 'teaching' times and 'Bible study' times on the Beach, in Homes, at Restaurants, and Online. In the Spring, Summer, and Fall we have occasional group gatherings on or near the Beach from the Biloxi Lighthouse (Porter Ave) to Rodenberg Ave (basically south of Keesler AFB). Be prepared to Bring your own Bible, Chair, Beach Shoes like Flip-Flops (sandals) or Sneakers, Drinks (non-alcoholic), Sunscreen, and Sunglasses to the Beach.
