Shalom. I decided to make this message part of our End Time Observations for this month because I believe the essence of this message is exactly why some things are happening.
It is based on the story of Samuel and his early days in the tabernacle at Shiloh under the tutelage of Eli the High Priest. The patterns we see in this story - the disregard for the holy things of God, the spiritual obesity and blindness of the priesthood and the contempt it all generated among the children of Israel - have relevance for our day and time. When all these things came to a head, He allowed an enemy to be seen within His sanctuary as the "glory departed Israel." Hope you enjoy! (Approximately 60 minutes).

This is a teaching recorded during one of our Yeshivat HaShoresh sessions. Based on 1 Samuel, this teaching compares the story of the Ark's capture and the demise of the tabernacle at Shiloh to current self-destructive trends within the Body today. The apathy of Eli the High Priest and the blatant disregard of his sons for the holiness of the tabernacle all culminated in the departure of God's presence. Without His presence, the tabernacle, the furnishings and all that it represented was of no value. Considering the dramatic pattern is liable to repeat itself, the question to us is: "How long before the unthinkable happens again?" Yet, before He brought down the house of Eli, He had a Samuel (the one who hears God) waiting in the wings. (Approximately 60 minutes).
