Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

A Life of Worship

I find it very interesting that the lines have blurred in "The body of Christ/Messiah" about the understanding a life of worship. Lines have become blurred with our doctrines (there are so many!) and what one brother in Messiah believes in worship and another considers legalism. How can this be?

It seems to to me that it has come about by loosing touch with the thing which defines all these things, The Holy Scriptures. Our understanding of the Scriptures has become disjointed, incomplete and without context. So as a result, we "fill in the blanks", most often times with "good intentions" without realizing the slippery slope on which we have fallen.

I pray that we use the Scripture to define our Worship. When I say Worship, I not only mean song and dance, but our study, our prayer, our lifestyles, our speech, and our work. Everything is an act of worship if we are devoted to YHVH. HE is omnipresent, HE can not be subdivided into convenient areas of our life.

We can not know who God is or what HE wants from us, unless we study it for ourselves. He has lined it all out in His book, from front to back. In order for us to live a life of worship we must eat, sleep and breath the Bible, from cover to cover! Read it in context and find people who teach it in context to help you in the rough spots. If questions aren't answered to your satisfaction, find a new teacher! Pray for the Holy Spirit's revelation as you study. Live what you learn. Pursue Him with passion.

Know the Book - there will be a test!
