Trip Report – Shavuot – Our proclamation

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Shavuot

The previous two articles we published regarding the feast of Shavuot emphasized the proclamation that had to be made as part of our Shavuot celebrations. We felt that this proclamation needed to be a repentance of sin. This repentance should not only be for our own sins, but also for the sins of our fathers. We set out on our trip to Jerusalem with the idea that we as a family needed to make a proclamation. However, we did feel that YHVH may have a bigger plan in mind. Little did we really know what an awesome experience awaited us!

When shall the restoration of all things be?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in restoration

In the Scriptures we see the phrase “restoration of all things” a few times. Do we understand what this phrase means and what preconditions exist for this to start? It starts off with personal restoration. Repentance is a key element of this process. How are we to repent? What do we need to repent of? What are the roles of Y’shua and Elijah in this process and what examples do we find in Scripture? In this study, we will discuss this in detail.

If you will not return to Me…

Just take a look around you! There is widespread famine, tropical storms, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, financial hardship, moral decay and infertility. The whole earth seems to be in turmoil. Is this the beginning of the end times? Are we experiencing what Y’shua described to His disciples in Matthew 24? Are these purely natural events or are these calls from Yahovah? Do you know the cyclical pattern of punishment described in Scripture and the sequence in which these punishements occur? What will happen next and what are we to do?

Teshuvah…Sin takes us away from YHVH, repentance brings us closer

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Yom Kippur

We all sin, no matter how hard we try not to. We are human – we sin in our thoughts, in the words we speak and in the things we do. You don’t have to go far to see the result of sin. In other people’s lifes and even our own lifes. How do we define sin? Sin is not keeping YHVH’s commandments; sin is compromising in doing the commandments; sin is speaking evil of another; sin is thinking evil thoughts; sin is eating unclean foods; to give you but a few examples. Some of these things we do unintentionally, but it still is sin. Sin takes us away from YHVH. It seperates us from His presence, it prevents us from hearing His voice. That is what I experience when I sin or compromise, but there is restoration through teshuvah (repentance) and forgiveness through the atoning work of Messiah Y’shua.
