Vayera – וירא

October 23, 2021
Genesis 18:1-22:24; 2 Kings 4:1-37; James 2:14-24

Torah Portion “‘וירא/Vayera” which means “And I Appeared” and begins, “And יהוה appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamrĕ, while he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day.”

In this week’s portion, Pastor Richard teaches on the results of the binding of Isaac. Abraham was called by HaShem to “Lech Lecha” which was a total and complete removal from himself, and this week Pastor Richard tells us why. He teaches that Abraham stood up to the worldly influences in order to honor HaShem, and we learn to focus on the walk of Abraham and leave our identity behind.

Pastor Richard shows the connection between Mt. Moriah, Isaac, the Messiah and the going forth of Torah. There is also a connection between Mt Moriah and being born-again, taking us to John 3:3.

Isaac was the one thing that Abraham loved the most in this world, but Abraham offered him on the altar at the command of HaShem. He was tested, for HaShem to know if he feared Him. Tests and trials in this world help to build our character and our faith. Shalom!

This week our Haftorah teaching is delivered by Ro’ah Alpha from 2 Kings 4:1-37 and the New Covenant teaching is delivered by Brother Mark from James 2:14-24.
