The close to the new series examining the awesome principles found within the observance of Yom Kippur/Day Of Atonement. How beautiful are both the imagery and the literal actions of presenting ourselves holy, righteous and pleasing to the LORD! Our hope is that this series helps us all go back to the ancient way and redeem what has been forsaken within the incredible Feasts of the LORD!
The new series continues as we examine the function of the High Priest, precisely during the Days Of Awe leading up to Yom Kippur. Do we need to "do anything" to be found clean before the Father?
If we don't understand the function of the OT priest, we will never understand what was intended/implied when we are told that we now, in Messiah, are a royal priesthood.
I spontaneously decided to record more of what the LORD is revealing to us as we observe our first Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement. The more I see, the more I cannot hold back sharing to anyone who would have ears to hear. The incredible imagery is endless. In Part 1, we'll primarily discuss the priestly call to holiness.
(* Parts 2 and 3 will be posted immediately.)
* Yet again, the audio quality on this one is bad. I continue to learn how to properly use different equipment. Thanks for your understanding.
As we're presently within the Days of Awe, mere days away from Yom Kippur, I've been so overwhelmed by the thought of what the High Priests would have been going through, personally, during this time. What can we glean from this understanding? What shifted when Yeshua, the Great High Priest came and what does it mean for us today? Let's find out.
In Luke chapter 21, Yeshua spells out many things that "will come" to His followers. It would do us all well to get it through our minds that we are included in those who will be called to endure trials and tribulations.
In this episode, I examine the question, "How can you plan and prepare for something that you never expect to face in your lifetime, including suffering and persecution, for the name of Christ?". Of course, the answer is, you cannot. We must prepare our hearts now to endure the upcoming age that is fast approaching. This text will give us a correct perspective.
In Romans chapter 8, Paul tells us that "both Jew and Gentile have been granted the status of being considered righteous". How? Why? What do we do with this truth and how does it affect our day to day lives? Or does it?
(* I found my recorder today! This episode, now one month old, was on it so I decided to throw it on here.) In this broadcast, I share a natural event that led to a spiritual principle - yellow jackets under my house foundation!
In ancient days it was tradition to go to the Water Gate (as mentioned in Nehemiah 8) and cast bread into the water. The activity was known as "tashlich", which comes from the Hebrew word meaning "to cast". It was meant to represent the casting of ones sins and "dirt". In this episode, we discuss this awesome principle.
The title says it all. What will you do when trials make it to your house, your family and your circumstances? Are you prepared? Are you spiritually mature and set? Let's find out.
This one is all over the place. Primarily (of course) focused on the topic of endurance, spiritual preparation and the readiness to stand firm, no matter what comes.
1 John tells us what will be true for us if we love one another. Including how the perfect love of the Father is actually accomplished, perfected and made complete in us. Our Abba is a perfect, loving, gift-giving Father. I stand in awe of His kindness towards us.
Sometimes we find ourselves within trying circumstances. Whether it's busyness, new environments or just trials, sometimes life is demanding our full attention. In this episode I insert the idea of inventing a device that can "check our source". We'll also briefly discuss Paul's challenge to not murmur or grumble, as we journey along these matters.
Things have been chaotic around here the last couple of weeks and this episode makes that clear. We'll eventually land briefly discussing Paul's willingness to make it known that he was a man of weakness, fear and trembling as he equally boasted in the Cross.
* Please note, I lost my usual voice recorder. This episode is a little rough as I experiment with another one.
Today is my son's birthday so it seemed fitting to share a bit of our story, in regards to becoming first-time parents at the age of 38. God surely poured out His goodness upon us when he gave us our son. I consider it a privilege to share, even in small increment, this part of our journey.
A very brief episode discussing the challenges and rewards of training the heart of a child. It is more than merely aiming to rear moral children. We are called to reproduce the Father's original plan! We can do it!
Sometimes the Father gives us two doors and both are deemed right in His eyes. So what do we do? This episode examines how we must be ones that walk in the path of Messiah and deny our own will, ways and our best interest. I'm convinced that we're entering a season where those of "active faith" will be used in great measure to advance the Kingdom, practically speaking.
During my prayer time this morning, the Father continued to lavish His love on me. "How?" you may ask. Listen to this episode and find out! We'll also briefly discuss how the love of Yahweh God continues throughout all generations.
Sometimes we just have to be as honest as we know how and talk to our Abba Father in absolute transparency. As we're being conformed to the image of the Son. As we journey into sanctification. As we strive to be holy as He is holy. As we labor to endure alongside the Brethren. Sometimes, for those who really give themselves entirely to these lifelong endeavors, we need to have the confirmation of the Father that He is in fact for us and not against us.
I ran across one verse in Habakkuk that stopped me in my tracks. From here on, I intend to make it one of my key verses. In this episode we unpack it line by line, attempt to extract all that we can from it and then bring it into our present-day lives.
