Weekly Sermon

Speaking on "Yeshua our life" at the Tree of Life fellowship on 1st April 2016

Weekly Feature

During a stay in Israel we visited one of the Emmaus sites.  It was amazing to stand among the ruins there and to imagine the long walk the two disciples had from Jerusalem.  On the way they communed and reasoned with one another.  It was during this time that the risen Yeshua/Jesus drew near and walked with them.  In the KJV it says in Luke 24:16, “But their eyes were holden that they should not know Him.”  In the NIV it says: “But they were kept from recognising Him.”

Barn Church, Great Totham, Chelmsford “Israel in God’s Purposes” 10.00am-2.00pm

Hebraic Church? Now there’s a phrase designed to upset or confuse just about everyone. Yet being Hebraic is not what many in the Church imagines it to be. In fact it could be nothing less than the key for true restoration and revival.

It is the author’s opinion that the failure of recent Church initiatives to get ‘back to basics’ is because doing things differently can’t be sustained unless there is a corresponding move to think differently. There’s no way we can take a Hebraic model (the early Church) and get it to work in a 21st century culture where the Greek model still reigns supreme.

With his customary humour, pacey style and shrewd insights, Steve Maltz examines seven areas where the Church has gone askew and suggests practical solutions to re-align the Church with the ‘original model’.

Steve will be at stand T12 at Excel in May. He is also speaking on Hebraic Church at two seminars, at 3pm on Tuesday (room SG26) and at 4pm on Wednesday (Bookfair)

This book is available for £10 from here.

WHAT SALTSHAKERS IS ALL ABOUT

In an age of competing voices and growing awareness of the Hebraic roots it is now necessary to be absolutely clear what we stand for. We have one abiding ministry aim and that is to glorify God by introducing the wider Church to the Hebraic roots that has been lost to it for centuries and to address the reasons for this historical neglect.
 
To do this we must be relevant and uncompromising in order to communicate effectively to an audience that is, by default, suspicious of our motives. This suspicion has two elements. The first is the historical situation best illustrated by the following sentiment – what gives us the authority to query the teachings and attitudes of our leaders and theologians, particularly those who came before us in the past? The second is a fear, sadly fed by some existing Hebrew Roots teaching, that embracing one’s Hebrew Roots is somehow locking us into a legalistic system, perhaps even sucking us into a form of Judaism.
 
The truth is that the Church has historically had an awful record of antagonism towards the Jews, resulting in a rejection of anything deemed Jewish and swapping the mindset of Jesus with a pagan one fed from Greek philosophy. Also, many Hebrew Roots teachers have failed to pick up on the liberating truths of the restoration of this mindset and, instead, have dwelt on externalities of traditions and rituals. This has given a false picture of what God has really intended for His Church, with respect to the One New Man of Ephesians 2.
 
We at Saltshakers are attempting to create a balance that we call Hebraic Church. It is a reclamation of the true Hebrew roots of the faith, as driven by the mindset of Jesus and the early believers. But, also, it doesn’t reject Gentile elements for the purposes of instructing the Church without antagonising it, illustrating restored truths without dwelling on wrong teachings and attitudes. It’s about presenting a fresh slate, quarried from a deep pool, but also trimming away some grime that has been picked up on the way.
 
For instance we have no problems with the name of Jesus, though we would probably prefer the more authentic name, Yeshua. Also, we are aware of the pagan derivations of Easter and Christmas but would not condemn those who partake in these festivals with a pure heart. The purpose of marketing our booklets with the name of “The Christmas Telling” and “The Easter Telling” is simply one of communication to our target audience. It is no different to Peter’s different approach to the way he presented his message to the Jews (Acts 2:14-36) and the Gentiles (Acts 10:34-43). It’s about connecting with your audience without diluting the truth.
 
It is all about communication. If it is our mandate to instruct the Church to embrace its Hebraic roots then our attitude and use of terminology is important, particularly in our current age of information overload, where misunderstandings abound. We need to embrace our Christian brothers and sisters in love and help them to move beyond the mistakes of the past and the confusions of the present and walk in the real blessings and liberating truth that come from the Hebraic foundations of their faith.

How the Church Lost the Truth (review)

To Life! (review)

Almost half of the population of England and Wales identifies itself as having no religion, outweighing the number of people who say they are Christian. British Social Attitudes surveys found in 2014 48.5% of those asked referred to themselves as having no religion - a huge increase from the 25% who ticked the "none" category in the 2011 census. Those who defined themselves as Christian - Anglicans, Catholics and other denominations - made up 43.8% of the population.
