ELUL – the Love Song Month of Preparation!
We are once again in the wonderful Hebrew Month of ELUL (August 12 – Sept 9, 2018).
Elul is the unique 29-day period of time each year dedicated to preparing our hearts to usher in the Biblical Fall Feasts of the Lord; Rosh Hashanah (Sept 9-10), Yom Kippur (Sept 19) and Tabernacles (Sept 24 – 30).
In Jewish tradition, Elul is the month of the Love Song; “I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine” (Song of Solomon 6:3). Continue reading
What does it look like to build a “Trust Account” with God?
Abraham trusted God’s promise that he would become the father of nations and God credited Abraham’s “account” as righteousness.
“Abraham put his TRUST in God, and it was CREDITED TO HIS ACCOUNT as Righteousness” (Romans 4:3 CJB).
Every time we trust in God – He “credits” our “account” as an act of righteousness!
And every time we trust in Jesus, our TRUST ACCOUNT increases!
BECAUSE…When we trust in Jesus – We Experience Jesus as “Trustworthy.”
When we TRUST in the person and work of Jesus, we are building our house upon the ROCK.
A “Trust Account” on the ROCK of Jesus will not be destroyed when the storms of life – and the storms of this ever increasing “god-less” age – crash onto the shores of America, and into our own homes and the lives of those we love. Continue reading
“DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME…”
In 2004 I had the honor and privilege of experiencing Israel for the first time. And it was there, in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, that the Lord opened my eyes to the significance of celebrating Passover each year.
As we took communion, and I pondered the words of Jesus, “Do this in Remembrance of Me,” I realized that it was during the Passover meal that Jesus spoke these words. In essence what Jesus was saying is –
“Now, when you celebrate Passover – REMEMBER ME, (1 Cor 11:24)“
Yeshua was INCLUDING His fulfillment of Passover – into the Passover celebration. Not fulfilling it in a way that we are no longer to celebrate a FOREVER ordinance of God! Continue reading
Surprisingly, I was BORN-AGAIN and experienced my very first VISION – in a Catholic Church, in 1978.
I share this vision now – because I believe it has a special message for us as we traverse this difficult season of adversity.
Pressure is increasing against Christians. Our nation is experiencing a great divide since the election of Donald J. Trump to the White House.
Christians find themselves on two sides of heated issues that are increasing the tension and disunity among believers.
I believe days will become more difficult – so it is imperative we learn how to find our peace in Jesus. And keep focused on Him, and His purposes in the earth.
The Kingdom of God – and the Kingdom of Satan are in a cataclysmic clash all over the earth. There is a great divide, which will increase as the light of God becomes brighter, and evil darkness manifests itself in ever increasing levels.
Jesus and Satan are after the hearts of man, as it has always been. However, as the end of the age approaches, the battle lines are becoming more clear, and the war is elevating. Continue reading
THE “BRIDE REVIVAL” THE NOW SEASON OF GOD.
As I seek the heart of our Bridegroom King – I am always seeking to hear what the Spirit is saying to us – His bride – because we are the ones who carry His presence in the earth.
It is imperative God’s people understand what He is doing and where He wants us interacting with Him to bring His Kingdom here upon the earth.
For some time now, I have been seeking God for His “NOW” Word. I continue to ask Him…
“God, What are You Doing in the Earth?”
“God What are You saying to Your People?”
I am going to share here some of what I have been hearing from the Holy Spirit for the past several months of this year of 2016.
The first of the series of prophetic words I am going to share is about the BRIDE REVIVAL.
TRUSTING JESUS is the “Righteous Acts” that Clothe The Bride on Her Wedding Day!
One morning Jesus shared with me that trust in Him is actually the “action” that clothes His Bride at the great Wedding Feast of the Lamb! (Rev 19:8).
While pondering the beauty of Jesus, and His love for me as His bride, I prayed through some of my favorite “bridal” Scriptures and two descriptive phrases of the bride jumped out at me that morning…
The first was the bride’s “fragrant oils” (Songs 4:10-11),
And the second was the bride’s wedding garment of “righteous acts,” (Rev 19: 7-9).
I personalized these Scriptures for my own life and asked Jesus this question:
“I feel today Beloved, You are drawing me to these issues – What are “my oils?” And what are the “righteous acts” You deem worthy to clothe me in?”
Here is what Jesus answered me: Continue reading
This poem was written by a young woman who met Jesus while she was in prison. The simplicity of her child-like faith blessed me so much I asked her for a copy and she gave me permission to share it with others.
A MAN I NEVER KNEW
Written by Mona McCall in CRC Women’s Prison, 1993
I never knew a man – a man I couldn’t see.
A man that says I could be everything, I ever dreamed I could be.
A man that takes away everything, the biggest of my fears,
A man that says He counts not just one… but all my tears.
A man that gives me sunshine, and showers me with rain,
A man that holds me close – When my heart is filled with pain.
It was hard at first, for me to trust… Trust a man I couldn’t see.
It was hard for me to understand – How could this man love me? Continue reading
SPIRITUAL CRISIS occurs when the value system of our life, the essence of our identity, what we believe at the core of our being to be true, proves false.
Spiritual crisis is the outcome of faith disintegrated.
But faith in what? This is the key.
Sometimes God orchestrates spiritual crisis because He wants us to understand we are trusting in something other than Him. And, often we are.
But what happens to the heart of a faithful Christian, one dedicated to loving and serving God with all of our heart – when it seems as though, God Himself is the one letting us down? This is the toughest kind to get through. Continue reading
Yeshua, our Passover Lamb, has passed out of death into everlasting life! The ‘first fruit’ of the living – out from among the dead!
This is the joy we remember and celebrate during Passover, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday.
When I asked the Lord what He desired for me to write in this final blog of my “Passover Series,” I heard two words; “honor” and “hope.”
Then, the Holy Spirit spoke these words to me;
“My hope does not disappoint. My hope reveals what is – the ‘solid’ of eternity. My hope is tangible substance – The tangible reality of heaven released on the earth. In Me, you are HOPE RELEASED into the earth.” Continue reading
Today Is Good Friday, the day all of Christendom remembers and honors Jesus’ suffering and death upon the Cross of Calvary.
Today is also Erev Pesach – the Eve of Passover. The very night that Yeshua (Jesus) celebrated Passover with His disciples and instituted the New Covenant in His body and blood (1Cor 11:23-25).
TODAY IS THE PERFECT UNION OF “THE ONE NEW MAN!” AS BOTH SACRED HOLIDAYS UNITE IN CELEBRATION!
TODAY is the perfect day of celebration for the One New Man (Eph. 2:11-16). Messianic Jews and Gentiles – united – celebrating the Passover Seder. Both groups as one, celebrating and remembering our Blessed Redeemer Yeshua, our Passover Lamb.
Just now as I wrote the word TODAY for the fourth time – I am reminded of this warning, “Today, if you hear His voice, harden not your hearts,” (Hebrews 3:15; 4:7).
TODAY is a new day of revelation that Jews are to live as Jews – even after receiving Jesus as Messiah. And, Gentiles are not called to be Jews. Both are one in Jesus. Together we celebrate the biblical feasts of the Lord as laid out by God in the Torah. Continue reading
