A call to Boldness
Do you speak with boldness about YHVH and His things or do you prefer to keep quiet? Boldness is another one of those recurring themes that I am experiencing in my life. I believe that it is not only for me, but that YHVH is calling us to be bold and to tell people about Him. This is still possible, we have the freedom now, but only YHVH knows for how long. Persecution of believers is on the increase and will force most to silence.
Cleaning out the leaven…being prepared
In a few weeks time we will be celebrating the Passover , the feast of First Fruit and the Feast of Unleavened bread. It is time to start preparing our homes and our hearts for this time. We prepare by removing leaven from our homes, both physical and spiritual. You may think that we still have plenty of time to do this, but you also know how time flies and how busy we all are. We always think there is plenty of time left, spiritually as well, but is this true? Our lives are not our own, and can be cut short at any time. Will you be ready when that happens, will I? Have you considered this, or do you move these kind of thoughts quickly to the back of your mind, not wanting to think about it? We should not do this, but instead ponder this and make sure we are adequately prepared. Leaven can’t remove itself and just as we prepare for this feast, by removing all leaven from our homes, we are to make sure we are spiritually prepared too.
A love of all things Jewish
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.
