Howard writes, "Why study Genesis 1 – 12? The whole of the Bible is under attack from those who never believed it for what it is, and from those who have fallen from the truth they once held."
Howard writes, "For me it is not institutional reconciliation, but acceptance and reconciliation — with confession, repentance, and forgiveness having their necessary part for excluding those who do not meet our own or our denominations’ qualifications..."
Howard writes, "Those who would make the Creation account given in Gen. 1 and 2 in the Hebrew Bible a myth open the door for those who say that it is a myth that the Jewish people are God’s chosen people."
Howard writes, "As believers and disciples of Yeshua, we do not want to return to the lower standard of the former covenant... but to go on to full maturity in the liberty and exceeding glory of the blood of the New Covenant of the Lord and Messiah."
Howard writes, "We must, like Elijah called upon the false prophets of Baal in Israel, make a choice: if Yeshua/Jesus is our Lord and God, let us believe and follow Him."
Howard writes, "The gathering was initiated by Tom Hess, with our congregation, Nachalat Yeshua, handling most of the logistics and equipment needed, acting as hosts, so to speak."
Howard writes, "We want to encourage and build up the Body of Messiah in the truth and unity of YHVH God. The Kingdom of God does recognize boundaries, and in the Spirit we can respect them, and cross over."
Howard writes, "In these last days, Peter informs us by the Holy Spirit that people live in unbelief, without the fear of YHVH. We can see lawlessness increasing, with more violence and brutality as a consequence."
Howard writes, "Such teachers and prophets bring in ‘destructive heresies’ to divide and to destroy the unity and the faithfulness of the people and children of God from walking in the truth, and worshipping the Father in spirit and truth."
Howard writes, "One thing about Christmas is that it is not a celebration of a shadow or type, looking for the One of whom Moses and the Prophets spoke. It is focused on Him who came — the Son has come, the Light shines brightly!"
