seek and you will find;
knock and the door
will be opened for you.
For everyone who asks receives;
he who seeks finds;
and to him who knocks,
the door will be opened.
Garrett Edwards From Ephesians 3:14-21 The Message God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
But regardless of how much I tried to reject God, or get him out of my life, he was still there just patiently waiting for me. He was so deeply embedded within me, that no matter how deeply I inhaled smoke, how full my stomach became of alcohol, or how many pills were inside of me, it never even came close to the seed that God had planted inside of me when I was born....

This "New Paradigm for God's Justice" BLOG is not a soft cozy place to be comfortable! This "New Paradigm for God's Justice" BLOG is to purposely make us uncomfortable; to challenge our Faith, to challenge our thinking, to encourage us to walk into deeper waters, to get out of our cozy "comfort zone," and "to do something!"
We are NOT called to be complacent, lethargic, luke-warm Christians! We are called to go out into the world, to "tell the 'Good News' of Jesus Christ," to make a difference! God does NOT place people in our paths for us to ignore and to walk-around like they do not exist. God puts people in our lives for a purpose!
This "New Paradigm for God's Justice" BLOG is NOT going to be politically correct! In many respects you may disagree with what I am saying (no problem)... I am NOT trying to tell you what to think... but I am trying to make you think... to challenge your thinking. Sometimes we need to be able to defend our beliefs,
(even if we only need to defend our beliefs to ourselves), to review, renew, and to reaffirm our beliefs.
House of David Fellowship
is a Hebrew Roots based Educational Fellowship in Richmond Virginia that benefits the local community by teaching the Hebraic perspective of The Holy Scriptures. Our desire is to understand the events of the early church, more specifically, the first century church, and draw from that how to order our lives today.
Whereas most of Christianity believes that the instructions of our Heavenly Father (sometimes referred to as "The Law") were done away with at the cross, We believe the Torah of God emanates from the abiding goodness of God's nature and thus stands forever, God being unchangeable. The Law of Christ, therefore, are these instructions, interpreted correctly, or, looking at it from another angle, God's manual of how a redeemed society functions and lives.
Concerning our observance of the Torah, We believe it is a reflection of His Divine Nature resident within us. Joining in with ALL the churches in Asia in the first and second century, we affirm that the Gospel is the Torah, unimpeded by man's traditions, while accepting Yeshua as the final atoning sacrifice for our Justification, being Supernaturally changed into His image by the Spirit of Holiness.
