Building altars

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa on . Posted in Scripture

We have recently published two articles: Dispelling spiritual darkness, which is about prayer altars and A spiritual priesthood about how wrong it is when we, as believers, call ourselves priests. These studies prompted a few the questions: how do we reconcile the building of altars and sacrificing by people who are not of the Levitical line?

We may need to challenge our understanding about altars and the premise that only priests were allowed to offer sacrifices. In this study, we will do that. We will first define what the word altar means in the context of scripture. We will also search out the instructions regarding the building of an altar and investigate who built altars and why.

Going up to Jerusalem

We have done a study before on going up to Jerusalem for the three pilgrimage feasts of YHVH. In the previous article, we focused on what is commanded, and how we are to understand it. With time we learn more and that is the reason for this article. In this study, we will look at this commandment in more detail and from an Apostolic writing point of view. We will also see what we can find as far as historical references are concerned.

Sometimes you see the benefits after making the commandment a habit. The feast of Sukkot is one of these commandments. By keeping the feast a couple of times, you start to see how this positively shapes your life.

Shavuot 2015 – An appointed time of great significance

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa on . Posted in Shavuot

Shavuot, the feast of oaths, an appointed time with our Heavenly Father. On this day we seven ourselves, we re-dedicate ourselves to YHVH. We have come to experience Shavuot as focusing on our relationship with YHVH, both individually and nationally. It does make sense because on this day the Torah was given and later the Holy Spirit. Both the Torah and the Holy Spirit enables us to have a relationship with our Heavenly Father. The Torah teaches how to be set apart and the Holy Spirit enables us to be obedient to these instructions.
