FORERUNNERS… a community of Believers in the Jewish Messiah.

Trinity Fellowship and Forerunner Ministries doesn’t look or function as an ordinary church. We’ve made a commitment to look more like the first century disciples that we see in the Book of Acts. Of course, you need to understand that those folks were Jewish in every sense of the word.

A more Scriptural approach to living our faith means we function on a Biblical calendar rather than a Gregorian calendar. We observe Shabbat and celebrate the appointed times of the Lord described in Leviticus 23. (They aren’t Jewish feasts after all. They are the Lord’s...

We are currently in the 12th month of the Biblical year. Last month (11th) was a 30 day month. We are nearing the end of the 12th month; the moon is in its waning period as our ability to see the entirety of the moon dissipates until we cannot see it at all, and then the moon begins a new cycle in which we start by seeing the sliver, or new moon. The lunar cycle is 29.53 days, so typically we have a 29 day month followed by a 30 day month, and then repeat. The fraction (.03) does build up...

In chapter 27, Israel was instructed to gather between Mount Gerizim and Mount Eval and recommit themselves as individuals and corporately as a community to Elohim and the Torah. It is that commitment, or lack thereof, that seals the blessings and curses (Deut. 29:29) - the secret things of YHVH belong to Him, but what has been revealed to us belongs to us.

This is why I believe the Apostle Sha'ul goes to great lengths to teach the former Gentiles about their new identity as...

The following is a brief explanation of the official Forerunners' position on the Biblical Dietary Laws. Please note that we follow Bibilical instruction rather than a rabbinical approach to the dietary laws. Keep in mind that Isaiah foresees that as the acharit hayamim (end of days) comes to the conclusion of Messiah returning, those who disregard the dietary laws will be judged for their disobedience (Isaiah 66:17). It is imperative that we look at all Scripture to determine our halakah...

Last time, we learned that Psalm 133 teaches us that the blessing of everlasting life is in the unity of Abba's people. John 17 teaches us eternal life is to know the one true God. The idea of "know" is to enjoy intimacy and a shared covenant with the Giver of Life.

John 17: After Yeshua had said these things, he looked up toward heaven and said, "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, so that the Son may glorify you -- 2 just as you gave him authority...

One of David's songs of ascent reveals a powerful clue in YHVH's plan, and why the season of Teshuvah is focused on building community with like-minded people who have chosen the path of submission to Elohim's plan..

Psalm 133 (CJB): Oh, how good, how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in harmony. 2 It is like fragrant oil on the head that runs down over the beard, over the beard of Aharon, and flows down on the collar of his robes. 3 It is like the dew of Hermon...
