Preparing for the Sabbatical year

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Sabbatical Year

The next sabbatical year is in 2016; have you thought about how you are going to keep it? Keeping the Sabbatical year is generally dismissed as something that we can’t do because we don’t live in the land. YHVH instructed us to keep this commandment, and we would like to show you why it is for all to keep, even us in the nations. We also want to share the other common objections with you and why these are not built on truth.

We shall also show you what the consequences would be if we don’t keep it and some practical ideas on how we can keep it.

Thoughts, the battle in our minds

What are you thinking right now? What have you been thinking about today? Are you worried, thinking about the challenges you face or thinking about pleasant things, rolling hills and wild flowers perhaps? Our thoughts are important; it shapes who we are and who we become. If you dwell on negative thoughts, you will become negative and so perceived by others. Did you know that your thoughts play a role in your health too?

Everybody does what is right in their own eyes…

This statement has bugged me for a long time, especially when it is quoted to condemn believers who earnestly do their best to follow YHVH’s commandments. This phrase is also almost always quoted as a reason for the disunity that is evident in the Messianic community. Sometimes it is used to manipulate others to compromise their beliefs for the sake of unity. Anti-missionaries like to quote it when they refer to us who believe in Y”shua. This has become quite a popular phrase…

However, is it right to use this phrase in these contexts?

Our commission

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Scripture

While doing Bible study this morning, Psalm 96 popped into my mind, and I took my Bible to read it. After having read it a few times a realized just how very profound it was. Here, in this Psalm, we are given instructions on what our focus in life should be, YHVH. YHVH also gave us a commission through King David. What is even more profound is that this commission is in line with the commission given by Y’shua in the Apostolic Writings.
