Shalom Family!

Praise Yah for another beautiful Shabbat day! Join us for Shabbat class today at 11:30am EST or watch live through the Live class link located on the main NCCI website.

We are blessed to have knowledge of the truth and be able to learn Elohim’s will. With this knowledge we can apply it to our daily lives and be better servants to Yah, our Elohim. Praise Yah!

Reminder: Directly after class we’ll be having our Fish Fry Fundraiser. Join us for food, fun and fellowship. The food will be great, as always. It’s for a GREAT cause, raising funds for the financial wellness of the Tabernacle. Last but not least, its always a good time fellowshipping with our Sinaitic Family. There will be games there too! Hope to see you there!

May the blessings of Yah be with you and your family!

 

Positive Mindset

Shalom Family!

Did you know that your health could be affected by your positive or negative thoughts? According to a “Power in Positive Thinking” article in John Hopkins Medicine, there is definitely a strong link between “positivity” and health (John Hopkins Medicine, http://bit.ly/1M33VEb). With so much happening in the world, it’s difficult to ignore the challenges that are being faced.

While immediate changes may not be evident, you can begin with yourself to change your outlook.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8, NIV

Some suggestions that were provided in the article were to practice:

  • Smiling – it is said that even fake smiling helps to reduce heart rate and blood pressure during stressful times. Everyone can conjure up even a fake smile, though I’d like to believe that a genuine smile may have an even better affect. We have everything to smile about though it’s the norm to focus on what’s “not right” or what “you don’t have”. Let’s smile just because we’re here, if you change your mindset you’ll be able to see the many other blessings that have been provided.
  • Reframing – a great example given, instead of stressing about being stuck in traffic since it’s nothing you can do about it until it clears, just be grateful you can afford a car and now have a few more moments to listen to music. This can also be thought of in the context of a job. Many people complain about their jobs, while it may not be the place you want to be at…it pays the bills and until you can find different, be grateful that you have been provided with the means to provide for yourself and your family.
  • Resiliency – this is learning how to adapt to stressful changes, negative situation or losses. Some advice the article gave was to maintain good relationships with family and friends. If nothing else, you have a HUGE Sinaitic family to love on and be loved by. In addition, it was suggested to accept that change is apart of life so take action on issues instead of hoping it will go away.

So go out and have a positive day and week! Your health and your mind will thank you!

May the blessings of Yah be with you and your family!

Under the Blood

Shalom Family!

This past Shabbat, 4 new servants of Elohim made their outward declaration that they believe in Yahshua and will be obedient to Yah’s laws and commandments.

Purification through Mikvah is a part of Yah’s plan for salvation; the plan of salvation  that he graciously has made available to all that love Him. There is one baptism, and with water purification all sins past have been cleansed through the blood of Yahshua. The person that emerges from the waters has transitioned from an unrighteous state to a righteous state of being and has renewed their relationship with Elohim.

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.” Revelations 22:14, NIV

After purification, all actions will be held accountable for according to Yah’s laws and commandments.

“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of Elohim.” Hebrew 10:26-27, NIV

This is a beautiful transition in life. Praise Yah for the opportunity to become right with Him again. Congratulations to Jay, Martin, Anjalaya and Uphaz on their Mikvah purification.

Family Day @ Jetton Park

Shalom Family!

We had a GREAT time fellowshipping at Jetton Park with our Sinaitic Family. Jetton Park had beautiful walking trails, a small beach area, and picnic areas surrounded by water.

With Yah’s will, we come together each Shabbat, but it felt good to come together outside of the normal gathering and bond as a Sinaitic family. It was great seeing the kids play together, draw with chalk on the concrete and take turns playing hop scotch and jump rope.

Chatting with elders, brothers and sisters, it was a memorable time accompanied by tons of delicious food and a beautiful shaded area to fellowship, eat and bond. Here are pictures from today’s gathering. Hope to see you at the next Family Day!

Sing Praises Unto Yah

Shalom Family!

We had a blessed time yesterday during our Sabbath convocation. In addition to learning the word of Yah, it’s always a delight to hear the choir sing praises unto Yah. On the 1st Shabbat of the month, we have the pleasure of hearing both The Sounds of Sinai and The Yeladim choir prior to the start of class.

Sounds of Sinai will soon be releasing their 2nd CD. In the interim, you can purchase their 1st CD, Monotheism, each Shabbat at the tabernacle. For remote congregants, you can purchase the CD by contacting the administrator, Sis. Kaliyah. *All proceeds benefit the well-being of NCCI, we thank you for your support in advance**

Pictures don’t do justice to the beautiful lyrics and praises sang unto Yah, but here are a few pics from yesterday’s praise & worship. You can hear it live each Shabbat beginning at 11:30am EST.

Teamwork!

Shalom Family!

Last night we kicked off one of our biggest fundraising initiatives, volunteering at the Bank of America Stadium during the Carolina Panthers season. By generously donating our time we in turned are blessed from the proceeds that benefit NCCI. We encourage everyone that has the availability to, to sign up for one or more of the games that will be held this season.

Come ready to work, because work it is, however it is also a great opportunity to work with your Sinaitic family and friends. Teamwork is the theme of each game that is worked because through all of the hiccups and malfunctions that may occur, overall we have fun and we stick together for the greater cause. If you are interested, please contact Sis. Katriel at rleake100@bellsouth.net

Until next time, check out these cool pics we snapped at the Fan Fest event. We had a late start so I was only able to snap pics at one stand, but there were two stands of hardworking volunteers last night. Kudos to everyone who helped out!

See ya at the next game!

Proverbs 4 (KJV)

Shalom Family!

Take a look at this chapter in Proverbs. It serves as a great reminder in wisdom and instruction.

Listen to a Father’s Instruction

1Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

2For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

3For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

4He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

5Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

6Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

9She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

11I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

12When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

13Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

14Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

15Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

16For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

17For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

18But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

24Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

25Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

26Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

27Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

May the blessings of Yah be with you and your family !
