How celebrating Sukkot shapes us
At first, some of YHVH’s instructions appear strange to us. We do not see the sense in keeping them. Yet, if we are obedient and keep the commandment, we soon see the benefits. 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.
The Law of Moses is the Law of YHVH!
The phrase “the Law of Moses” is used in Scripture quite a few times, but does this phrase mean that it carries with it only the authority of Moses, and can therefor be abolished? In order to answer this question, we need to determine what is contained in the Law of Moses and who gave these commandments. When we know this, it would be easier for us to understand how much weight the law of Moses carries. We will also study to see how Y’shua perceived the law of Moses and what He taught about it. What if we can prove to you from Scripture that the law of Moses is the law of YHVH? Would that convince you that these instructions are eternal? Also, what would you, as Y’shua’s disciple do it you knew He not only kept, but also taught the Law of Moses?
Evangelize as Y’Shua did
We often meet people who are convinced of their truth and are willing to share this with everybody willing to listen. If these people sense any disagreement, it can usually lead to long and heated debate. When you go on the internet onto social sites like Facebook, you find the exact same pattern. In the Scriptures we find some good examples of how we should be acting. What can Y’Shua teach us in His encounter with the Samaritan woman?
A night of watching…a study of Exodus 12:42
We were in Israel last year with Pesach and just before the first day of Unleavened bread, the discussion of whether or not to keep a vigil on this night came up. Most of the believers in the Jerusalem hostel at the time were of the opinion that we are to stay awake all night, and that it was commanded to do so. This was new to us; we have read the verse they quoted to prove this many times, but we have never really seen it that way. We did a quick study, and their interpretation to stay up seemed to be right so we decided to err on the side of caution and just do it. It turned out to be quite a blessing. We did some Bible study and talked and when the sun stated to rise, we went to sleep for a while. So, it is almost Pesach again, and we want to do a proper study of the subject to make sure our interpretation is correct, and we do stay up if we are indeed commanded to do so.
A Practical guide for the Passover Season
YHVH gave us His appointed times, firstly, as memorials and secondly as rehearsals to teach us His ways. When we discover His truth, He guides us to follow the ancient paths, His paths. His ways are described in His Word; His rest day, His feasts and His instructions to guide us in our lives. He gave these instructions not to put a burden on us, but to give us life. In this article, we shall focus on the practical observance of the Feast of Passover, Unleavened bread and First fruits. These are the first feasts of the new biblical year. We also include a Haggadah for you to print out and use during your seder meal. May you have a blessed passover season!
All that YHVH has spoken we will do!…a message for Shavuot
It is almost Shavuot again, the feast of proclamation. How blessed are we to be able to celebrate YHVHs appointed times? YHVH has a purpose with these days, a very special purpose. These appointed times are prophetic and this one, Shavuot, has been fulfilled twice. We have learned, with the previous cycle, that this day is also called the day of proclamation. So what are we proclaiming this year? We believe that we need to continue in repentance as our ways are not perfect before Him. However, we also need to re-commit ourselves to serve YHVH, without compromise. Allow us to explain…
