Keeping Passover and the Spring Feasts: When are they and how are they relevant today?

The Lord’s Holy Days, Feast Days, Jewish Feasts, Appointed Times, Mo’edim — whatever term you use, don’t miss these days!  As a Christian seeking more intimacy in my walk with Yeshua, learning about, experiencing and keeping these feasts (including the Sabbath) has brought me not only into deeper intimacy with him, but God has showered me with new understanding, unexpected blessings, strengthened faith and fresh excitement daily.  I highly recommend it!
Included here is a list of my blog posts about the Spring Feasts.   Read the rest of this page »

Purim – A Reflection of our Own Faith

PurEstherim 2017: Sunday, March 12

While not one of Yehovah’s commanded feasts, I believe Purim, the remembrance of the story of Esther in the Bible, is worthy of its annual celebration.

Purim is a microcosm of our own lifelong quests:  to walk in Yehovah’s ways despite the pressures around us, to trust that his purposes are being manifest in the events of our nation and world, and to have the courage to submit to his sovereignty and will at every turn.  In short, it’s about living a life of faith.  As you read the story and the following posts, you will see yourself and your circumstances, as well as Yehovah’s sovereignty and guidance in your own life.

Resting in God’s Faithfulness: Ishmael and El Roi

Image271In my previous posts on this topic, I shared how Yehovah demonstrated his faithfulness to me by replacing my fear with faith and carrying my burdens, goals and plans for a year.

The next perspective he showed me, I call Ishmael and El Roi.  These are two descriptions of God in the Bible.  Yehovah revealed himself to me through these two names in such a way that it changed my whole perspective and empowered me to live continuously in a place of peace and righteousness.

The 8th Day – The Last Feast is Just the Beginning

penn-cove-etherealShemini Atzeret, or The 8th Day, is the last of the Lord’s Feast days on the calendar, following seven other Feasts and placed on the end of a seven-day Feast, Sukkot / the Feast of Tabernacles.

But the instructions for this day are a bit vague – it is to be a Sabbath with a holy convocation and an offering – much the same as the weekly Sabbath.  What’s the significance of this day?  In my study of this question, I was surprised at just how significant this day is.  It changed my whole understanding of not just the Fall Feasts, but all of the Feasts.  Instead of just an extra day of rest on the end, it has become the whole point of all the Feasts.  Here are the eight things I learned about The 8th Day.

Resting in God’s Faithfulness: My Shimetah Year

Image19-1In my last post on this topic, I shared how Yehovah demonstrated his faithfulness to me very specifically over one year’s time.  He replaced my fears with faith and changed my perspective to one that allows me to stay in his peace and rest every day.

A couple of years later I was working on new projects and new goals.  I still had my new perspective and was still trusting God for all of my provisions, but I was still striving.  Not out of fear, but for accomplishment – improvement in my career,  progress on changes I wanted in my personal life, projects and goals I had set for things I wanted to change or improve.

That’s not all bad, but for me there was this feeling of discontent, that things weren’t what they could be.  This feeling kept me striving, antsy, a little on edge, impatient, trying to get things on track the way I thought they should be.  I could feel this drive to make something of my life.

Yeshua’s Ascension Brings a Double Portion on Pentecost

Yeshua's AscensionIn a separate blog post I discuss how the day of Pentecost/Shavuot kicks-off the new covenant, guarantees our eternal inheritance, and brings new life through the Holy Spirit – enabling us to fulfill our mission and destiny on earth.

As believers in Yeshua, we already carry the Holy Spirit within us every day.  But if we’re prepared for it, I believe there’s a double portion of Yeshua’s Spirit poured out on Shavuot. Read the rest of this page »
