As my twenty year wedding anniversary arrives today, my heart is stirred toward the opportunity to live in the first love reality. What a blessing to daily walk in thankfulness and awe of all that the LORD has done on our behalf! And, what a challenge to practically do each day. We must set up a "stone of remembrance" and deliberately walk out our days, in love, in thankfulness, as in the place where we started.
An examination of some scriptural accounts of men who loved the LORD, and even zealously followed Him, yet were found opposing His will and ways. We must learn that we ourselves are prone to do likewise. I believe that if the Church moved out into humility and self-examination FIRST, the First Century Church would return to the earth.

In a present cultural climate where everyone seems to believe that they exist in order to expose everyone else's error, it would do us well to turn the spotlight on ourselves. In this episode, I choose to do just that and give us all a public example to follow. We can do it, but it will cost us our own lives and reputation - which, the last time I checked is what we're called to do, in Christ.
As most listeners of this program know, this is our first year of keeping the biblical Feasts. Today, I'll be sharing what we're learning about, specifically, First Fruits, Days of Unleavened Bread and The Omer.

As I read a government-sponsored billboard asking "Are you ready for the next disaster?", it got me to thinking. This episode has some cultural commentary as well as spiritual application in regards to preparing for whatever is next in our age.
As I was out hiking recently, I began to think about the importance of staying on a well-marked trail. This episode discusses the great value of staying within what has already been carved out for us, spiritually speaking. (* Please note that this was recorded on my cell phone, as I was hiking along a loud mountain stream, so quality is not the best.)
** We were just informed that the recording cuts out for about a minute, at the 12 and 15-minute mark. Sorry.
Some things within this episode. Is the modern-day Church walking aware of Her identity? Is She a royal priesthood? Is She a purchased possession of Yahweh? If She is, then what is She commanded to do and be? People were driven out of the Temple, never driven in. Why? Does the Church of this hour really know Who She is?
I stepped out to record a few brief thoughts towards preparing for Passover that arrives this evening. If you're like me (new to the Feasts) or just simply considering doing something, please listen and be encouraged! * This is not about what to do but rather an encouragement to do what you can.
What does it mean to be a chosen race, royal priesthood, holy nation and people for God's own possession? What of the laws of the land? Does Passover apply to sojourners/foreigners or just natives?
