The wave sheaf and the sabbatical year

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Appointed times, Sabbatical Year

Nobody can deny that YHVH is in control of everything. We read of YHVH’s greatness throughout scripture. In Job 37:1-39:30, and in many other passages, YHVH’s greatness is described. How He has made and controls nature, the weather, and every living creature. He causes the lightning to strike, the rain to fall; He causes the wind to blow. YHVH is in control!

If we believe this, which we and most people do, we cannot deny that YHVH was in control of what happened this year with the barley. YHVH made the rain fall, He caused the barley and other grains to germinate, it is also He who caused it to grow and develop the way it did. I believe YHVH did this for several reasons.

When must the barley be aviv?

The sheafs are ready for First Fruits offerings at the start of the year

This year there has been a lot of discussion regarding the start of the new year. Most of these discussions were centered around the topic of when the barley needs to be aviv. Should it be before the new year starts or only when the Wave Sheaf offering is brought? In our article in 2012 we took the position that the barley must be aviv before the new year is announced. Due to all these discussions we went back and took a deeper look at this topic. Let us see if our understanding of the Scriptures needs to be adapted.

What are demons?

We have already looked at angels and the adversary in our study of the spiritual realm. In this study we will investigate what exactly demons are and where did they come from. To often there is a lack of knowledge regarding demons, idols and ghosts. Thus we need to turn to Scripture to see how the writers in the different periods thought about these spiritual beings.

Praise in faith, healing and warfare

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Faith, Spiritual Warfare

Who doesn’t like to be praised? Praise builds up. You may have witnessed the glow on a little child’s face when you give them praise. YHVH wants us to praise Him, He deserves our praise, but the way I understand it, is that it is not for His benefit, but for ours. There is great power in praise. In this article we will search the scriptures to see what we can learn about praise from scripture.
