Shavuot 2015 – An appointed time of great significance

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. 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.

Read here about our experience of this day.

Why does evil seem to prevail?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in repentance

We live in a wonderful world, the beauty of creation declares YHVH’s existence. You can’t study the detail of any created being or plant without realizing that there is a Designer of it all. It can’t just happen by change. YHVH created every intricate detail of existence. He designed it meticulously and we have yet to discover many facets of it. Modern science has touched the tip of it, but cannot claim they know or have discovered all there is to know. YHVH is in control of all this, and He has a plan, He knows the end from the beginning. Nothing is random or chaos.

His purpose will prevail and his purpose is to save. Read further to find out how prevailing evil is connected to this…

National and Personal redemption, both are required

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in repentance

“The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.”(Eze 18:20)

The Apostle Paul also teaches that we are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12)

Each of us is responsible for him or herself in the sense that we are to repent of our own sins when we become aware of it. However, there is something to be said about national repentance and redemption. There is much proof of this in Scripture. How are we to understand and apply this in our lives?

The six woes, and Yom Kippurim

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Scripture, Yom Kippur

It is almost Yom Kippurim, the most solemn day of the year. A day of atonements, a day of introspection and repentance. I am sure we have all been searching ourselves, to find the areas where we fall short. I always ask YHVH to reveal these areas to me, and He is faithful. It is never pleasant, but good for growth and profitable in becoming who He wants us to be. So, how does this relate to the six woes and rotten fruit, you may wonder.
