Messianic Fellowship Online

Worship and Study Program for this week: 

Parsha 02: Noach (Noah)

Shabbat Shalom Everyone.  Welcome to this week’s Worship and Study Fellowship Online. Today our study centres on the second Parsha called Noah.  Remember that the Torah, (the first five books of the Bible) is divided into 54 portions which are read over 12 months.  Each portion is then linked to scriptures in the Writing and the Prophets, and further into the New Covenant texts. How informative this will be today, reading the history of Noah and why God felt compelled to destroy all humankind except Noah and his family. God identifies Noah as righteous before Him. 

We also read about all the generations leading up to Noah and Abraham. Interestingly, God distinguishes between clean and unclean animals, which we hear about hundreds of years later when the Israelites sacrifice only clean animals. So it was, that Noah would sacrifice a clean animal to God when he sets foot in the ‘new world’ washed clean. Noah’s sons spread out into this new world and built the Tower of Babel. God dispersed them throughout the world to establish the nations.  

Added to the Program this week is the celebration of Yom Ha Aliyah meaning The Day of Aliyah, where those who have chosen to return to live in the Promised Land are acknowledged for their loyalty to God’s promise to Abraham. The last song we sing is dedicated to those doing Aliyah. It is called ‘Zion’ by Aaron Shust. This celebration day starts sunset on Saturday and we have an opportunity of praying for Israel that more will return to the Promised Land before Yeshua returns. 

 Each week, our program begins with inspirational English and Hebrew worship songs, which set the pace and theme for the upcoming study. We always start with the song, Shabbat Shalom by Jonathan Settel. And, as you are singing this song, you can think about the millions of other Messianic believers who are also singing this song on Shabbat. We have a wide range of quality songs from which we choose at least one new one for you to sing along to.

4. Opening Prayers for this weeks Parsha: Noach 

Opening TORAH Prayer:  Blessed are You, Y’HoVaH our Elohim, King of all existence, who chose us from among all nations and who gave us your Torah. Blessed are You, Y’HoVaH who gives us the Torah. AMEN

(Jeremiah 31:31-34) “Behold, the days are coming,” says Y’HoVaH, “when I will make a Renewed Covenant with the house of Isra’el and with the house of Y’hudah (Judah), 32“not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” says Y’HoVaH. 33 “But this is the Covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” says Y’HoVaH, “I will put My Torah within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.  No longer will any of them teach his fellow community member or his brother, [do you] ‘know Adonai’?; for all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest; because I will forgive their wickedness and remember their sins no more.” 

(Isaiah 12:2-3) “See! Yah is my salvation; I am confident and unafraid; for Yah Y’HoVaH is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation!” Then you will joyfully draw water from the springs of salvation. 

(Psalm 3:8) Salvation belongs to Y’HoVaH; Your blessing be upon Your people.”

(Psalm 46:7) Y’HoVaH Almighty is with us; the Elohim of Jacob is our refuge.”
