In the last few weeks I have posted multiple times from multiple angles why it is so critically important that we, as the Body of Messiah, come together in unity and walk in fellowship with our brothers. Al takes that message to a whole new level with a terrific lesson from last week’s Torah portion dealing with Korach. I HIGHLY recommend taking the time to read and absorb!
Here is the punch line, to make sure you don’t miss it:
Up to now we have proven unable to govern ourselves and our families, even with the redemptive revelation offered by our Invisible God. For millennia God’s people have awaited Messiah to come and do this for us, and for millennia God has waited for His people to make themselves ready for Him to govern them.

Well, it doesn’t happen without us actively working toward that end. I hear you, and unfortunately it may take a crucible, but it will happen. Best we move that way before being forced to.
reading this morning in the call of torah and a neat note on the subject of unity:
‘however, whereas the Ten Commandments speak to the Jewish people in the singular, the laws here are expressed in the plural. As the Zohar explains, at Sinai the people were wholly United-of one heart and mind-and were therefore addressed as a perfect unit. This degree of unity was never achieved agajn and that is why the people are addressed here in the plural.’ Commentary on Lev 18:2 all things being restored soon, hoorah!
