We Want to Serve You in Your Ministry!
It is our desire to serve you and your church. Since Word of Messiah plants congregations worldwide, you can understand why we are a strong supporter of local churches such as yours.
Through our teaching ministry, we seek to edify the local church, demonstrating how the Old Testament as foundation for our faith finds its fulfillment in the New Testament, as we see the promises of God in the Messiah fulfilled once and for all in Jesus.
We also want to encourage our family in Christ with the wonderful news of how Jewish people around the world are coming to faith in their Messiah. We want to assist and encourage your congregation in outreach, equipping them as they share the Good News (the Gospel) with Jew and Gentile alike. We would love to visit your church, seminary, or college chapel, and are available to speak on a variety of topics.
We understand that there are many reasons why congregations are unable to have guest speakers. For some, the financial burden of travel and accommodations is too great, and for others, their congregation may still not be meeting in person.
Whatever the reason, don’t let that stop you from hearing God’s message from the Scriptures of how you can be involved in Jewish ministry! Sam Nadler is delighted to bring this message to your congregation via Zoom at no cost to you. Please call our office at 704-544-1967 if this is an option that would suit your needs.
Messiah in the Feasts
Did you know that God has a redemptive calendar? Did you know that each appointment or feast explicitly reveals Yeshua, our Messiah? Take a deeper dive into the Scriptures with us as we study each of these feasts and grow- not just in knowledge- but in love and appreciation for our wondrous Savior.
Feasts of Redemption
Did you know that God’s entire redemptive program is outlined in the Feasts of Israel? The three Spring Feasts (Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits) were fulfilled by Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection at His first coming. Pentecost, the fourth of the Feasts, was fulfilled at the giving of the Holy Spirit following Jesus’ ascension. The Fall Feasts (The Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles) hold incredible truths that will not be fully revealed until their fulfillment at Jesus’ return. You and your church will be greatly blessed as you learn more about God’s appointed times, and their powerful significance for believers in Jesus today.
Passover is the first feast of the year, reminding us that life begins when we accept the redemption provided for us by the perfect Lamb of God. Invite us for a “Messiah in the Passover” demonstration; perfect for a Sunday morning or weekday evening service at your church, or for a Passover banquet in which the congregation can take part in a full Passover Seder meal. Learn how every element of this ancient feast points to Messiah, and discover how we as believers in Jesus can rejoice in proclaiming Him through its celebration today.
The Feast of Pentecost was first celebrated at the time when Israel received the law at Mt. Sinai, as a holy God visited His people in the midst of thunder and fire (Ex. 19:18-20). It was fulfilled when God gave His people the Holy Spirit, which came with a rushing wind and with fire (Acts 2:2-3). Learn how this feast is best understood in its Jewish context, and celebrate how God has brought Jew and Gentile together through the Holy Spirit to be part of His family in Messiah.
Feast of Trumpets
The Feast of Trumpets (also called Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Year) is marked by the blowing of the Shofar. We see in Scripture that Jesus will return when the “last trump” will sound (1 For. 15:52). Discover the biblical meaning of this mysterious Feast, and its implications for our lives as believers in Jesus
Day of Atonement
On the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), the high priest of Israel would enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple to give a sacrifice to atone for the sins of his people. When Jesus our great High Priest died for our sins, the veil of the Temple was torn from top to bottom, signifying that sacrifices for sin would no longer be needed to enter God’s presence as Jesus was the perfect Sacrifice. Grow in deeper awe and thankfulness for our Savior through this message about the depths of His love for us.
Feast of Tabernacles
The Feast of Tabernacles is God’s ‘finale rally,” the last of the seven Feasts He ordained. It points to the culmination of His glorious redemptive plan for humanity, when He will reign on earth in the Millenial Kingdom. Learn about how Jesus used the Feast of Tabernacles to speak of Himself during His ministry on earth when He came to “tabernacle among us” (John 1:14), and prepare for the time when people from all nations will celebrate it together in Messiah’s Kingdom! (Zech. 14:16).
Other Message Topics
God’s Love for Israel and You
In Jeremiah 31:1-3, God speaks of the great love He has for Israel. How does God demonstrate His love for Israel then and now, and what does this tell us about His faithful love for us who know Him today?
To The Jew First
When people read the famous words of Paul found in Romans 1:16-17 (“For I am not ashamed of the Good News for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…”), they can easily overlook the next phrase, “to the Jew first.” Why is this such an important part of this verse, and the entire Bible? What if the key to reaching the world with the Good News is to reach the Jewish people?
Why Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem?
Psalm 122:6 tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Why should this be a priority for all believers in Jesus? Discover the blessings God has in store for all who pray and seek the salvation of the Jewish people. You will be amazed at the powerful truths found in this short verse!
The Lamb through Scripture
God has never left people without a way for their sins to be forgiven, and to be reconciled to God. When Adam and Eve first sinned, God offered a sacrifice in order to cover their sin: a lamb for a person. As Scripture unfolds, we see how God continued to provide: through a lamb for a family, a lamb for a nation, and finally, a Lamb who would take away the sin of the world; a Lamb for all eternity. Walk through God’s redemptive plan, and rejoice in the abundant grace He has freely offered; giving everything in order to have a relationship with those He loves!
Israel in Prophecy
Few prophetic portions of Scripture fail to mention Israel. Why does Israel always seem to be in the middle of things, and why is their presence essential for the furthering of God’s plan in this world? Discover new perspectives on God’s Word and on our world today as you learn from those who saw so much, yet understood so little: the prophets.
Christmas Through Jewish Eyes
Thousands of years before God came in the flesh as a baby in Bethlehem, His coming was foretold. Learn from Isaiah 9:1-6, a key Messianic prophecy, how Jesus the Messiah is our hope in the midst of a dark world.
The Feast of Purim
The Feast of Purim was established to commemorate the day when God rescued the Jewish people from destruction at the hands of Haman (Esther 9:26-28). From the book of Esther, we can learn much about God’s faithfulness in the midst of a world full of hatred and anti-Semitism. Though God’s name is not mentioned in the book of Esther, we see His powerful hand at work throughout it. Be encouraged that, like Esther and Mordecai, God has a vital role for each of us in His plan.
Feast of Dedication
This historical feast celebrates events that took place in the time between the Old and New Testaments, when the Temple was restored and rededicated after it had been defiled by those who hated God. Learn how Jesus celebrated Hanukkah (John 10:22ff), and utilized it to speak of the deliverance He alone can bring. Today, believers in Jesus are the Temple of the living God (2 Cor. 6:16). Let us dedicate our lives to serving Him!
