Three of the seven commanded feasts, are pilgrimage festivals. That means that the celebrant is to go up to Jerusalem for the feast. These three festivals are: the Feast of Unleavened bread, Shavuot and Sukkot. Are we required to follow this commandment to go up to Jerusalem? Is it only for the inhabitants of the land Israel? Maybe it was solely commanded while the Tabernacle or the Temple was still in use? We all want to do what is right. We will endeavor in this study to answer these questions.

As a result of my previous discussion regarding the end-time deceptions, I have been having discussions with several people regarding their experiences. These include a couple we met when we went to Jerusalem for Pesach and the Feast of Unleavened Bread earlier this year. They are in the land of Israel now for a while and they shared with us some of their experiences. I have convinced them to put these experiences into a document and they have agreed to allow me to post it on our blog. I hope that their experiences will give you some additional insight into some of the challenges that you could face when living in the land of Israel.
The Sabbatical year is a picture of provision. All the instructions regarding this commandment points to provision. The releasing of debt and slaves. The cessation of all field labour for a year. These are very challenging instructions. To keep the Sabbatical year requires absolute dedication. Dedication in our obedience towards our Elohim.
I have recently written two articles on the topic of head covering. I find it a very intriguing but at the same time; overlooked topic. The authority structure of Yahovah is the most important facet of this teaching. The head covering was given to the woman to wear as an outward sign of that authority. I recently came across this article that not only supports the view we hold but, also adds some new understanding, especially with regards to the part in 1 Cor 11 about the angels.
