Ruach HaKodesh – The Holy SpiritSeptember 5, 2017
I am excited to introduce to you a new podcast series we will be posting called Ruach Hakodesh. This series is an in-depth study on the Holy Spirit from a Messianic Torah perspective. Each audio session was recorded live at Beit Tzur Messianic Fellowship in Regina, Saskatchewan.
This series arose from the burden that we as a movement desperately need the Holy Spirit in our midst. We are nothing, and we can do nothing for God’s Kingdom, without His Spirit filling and empowering us. Yet sadly the topic of the Holy Spirit has been a matter of confusion and division among believers. It is also a topic that has received little in-depth attention in our movement. Our goal is to sort through some of the different understandings and presuppositions that we have, and see what the Bible actually says. We also seek to understand how our Messianic Torah theology should inform our understanding of this vital subject.
This series covers some of the history of interpretation in both Christianity and Judaism regarding the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We go deep into understanding the gifts of the Spirit and how they are to function in our communities of faith. We also look forward to the prophetic expectation of the Spirit’s work in the future.
The following is a table of contents for this series. This outline will be updated with links to the audio sessions as they become available. You can also subscribe to this podcast here.
