Well here we are almost a month into the new Julian / Gregorian calendar year, Did you catch that? I didn’t say “God’s calendar” as His calendar is different and was given as it says in Genesis 1 for the purpose of giving light to the earth and for signs and seasons. The Hebrew words for signs and seasons are not what they seem in English translations. The word for signs, means signal as in to signal something when He desires to get our attention. The word for seasons is translated in other places as “feasts” ie in Leviticus where He gave the “feasts of YHWH” but the more accurate translation of “moed” is “appointed times”. These are times where He may choose to interact with mankind, moreso or in a different way / level than usual. These appointed times on God’s calendar include : Passover, First Fruits, Shavuot (Pentecost), Yom Teruah (Trumpets, Days of Wrath), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Tabernacles to name most.
At His first coming Yahshua (Yeshua, Jesus) fulfilled all the spring feasts “to the letter” meaning at the appointed times as He was crucified @ Passover in accordance with all the rules for the sacrifice of the Passover Lamb, His resurrection took place on First Fruits (that’s why Paul said He is the first fruits in his epistles), He ascended and the Spirit descended @ Shavuot (the feast of the early harvest). His second coming will fulfill the fall (autumn) feasts.
Further to the post “Deliver Us From Evil”, I wanted to make some observations that include those seeking to manifest the lawful movement. As I write this Dean Clifford is still in jail after 2 months, and has been / is being given a demonstration of what happens when the Babylonian legal system and its enforcers decide to make an example of you.
In talking with others who are seeking to return to the being not subject to the STATE ie Babylon, with all its restrictions, limitations, and taxations, they agree that it’s best not to be belligerent and play the martyr the way Dean does, but rather to seek to be free to live in peace, do no harm to others, and avoid confrontations wherein is possible. I agree with that as the scriptures say, “seek to live peaceably with all mankind”.
As one looks around (at news etc), things are getting ominous for sure. Yesterday it was reported on several internet news sites like Before Its News, and others, that the Federal Reserve is going to be bought by China, due to the fact the US defaulted on its debt obligation in Oct. 2013. Again, the bible admonishes to avoid borrowing and to live within your means and be content – but the US and most western “first world” nations have allowed themselves to become enslaved by the global banksters ie banking elite, with no hope of paying off the debt. The bible says the borrower is the servant of the lender until the debt is paid.
But of course, the formerly “Christian” nations, have long since shed the scriptures, don’t want to know God Almighty (Yahweh Elohim), and want to live as they please without regard for His will, law, or anything. It does say however, who sows the wind, reaps the whirlwind.
Couple that with all the increases in major earthquakes, severe weather, the coming tetrad of 4 blood moons, plus solar eclipses, about to happen in 2014, 2015 – all at Yahweh (God) ‘s appointed times (Passover both years, Yom Kippur etc) and one can’t help but think of that prophesied by Joel, and in Acts - about the skyi being darkened, the blood moons, solar eclipses, nature in labour pains, distress, to warn of the forthcoming Day of the Lord. On this subject, check out a youtube video of David Jones on Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural” show called “The Day of the Lord” wherein David was twice transported in an open vision to experience first hand what the Day of the Lord will be like, in order to warn all who will listen.
