This past weekend I had the honor of presenting two breakout sessions at Revive in Nashville, TN. While the breakouts weren’t formally recorded, I recorded my sessions, entitled Becoming One Loaf Part 1 and 2 (audio only). The slides and the messages are below. This message is derived from an upcoming BEKY Book that I’m writing on the fall feasts (title TBD). Rather than being an introduction of the fall feasts, this BEKY Book will focus on the spiritual flow or movement of Ruach HaKodesh at Adonai’s fall appointed times, and through you and your community.
We are to be One or Echad with Adonai and one another at His return at the fall moedim, but the message of how we reach that unity requires a great deal of self sacrifice. Becoming One Loaf Part 1 explores the threshing floor and the threshing process of grains as an example of meeting with Adonai as a unified loaf. Part 2 speaks about the summer season, the Three Weeks, and how the danger before the fall moedim is falling into idolatry, which is the context of the verse that engendered my title.
“Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.” 1 Corinthians 10:17 (NIV)
With today’s culture being so focused on self and personal identity(-ies) rather than on one’s identity in Messiah, this is a word in due season. What will it take to bring us into unity?
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 (NASB)
