Blog update and book recommendation!

First, a blog update! We have added another scripture list to our pages.  Blessing Scriptures is a list of scriptures that deal with us living in the blessing. Sometimes when the world or the enemy is so loud, it is important that we are speaking things God says about living in the blessing LOUDER!  So hop on over there and enjoy. You can find it at the top of the page under Scripture lists any time, along with the others we have put together for you over the years. These are some of our most popular pages on the blog.

Second, a book recommendation! We don’t often recommend books other than the Word, so this one has to be something special! And it surely is! The book is:

Vessels of Fire and Glory: Breaking Demonic Spells Over America to Release a Great Awakening by Mario Murillo

If you click on the above title you will see it is available in Kindle, paperback and Hardcover (we don’t get any benefit to you purchasing it). You can also find it in many other places.  The title didn’t catch my attention, but two men I listen to teach regular both recommended it separately within a week of each other. Then I was gifted it! So reading it I was! It is one of those books that , at least for me, I had to put it down every few paragraphs and BREATH… WOW the principles laid down in it really spoke to my spirit. My flesh didn’t like it much, but too bad!! I highly recommend in , especially in the days we are living in and those that are coming. It will help give clarity and purpose, along with biblical understanding. It is not for the faint of heart, but it is for those that are yearning for Him, the King of Glory!  I don’t want to give away any more, I want the Holy Spirit to walk you through this book, speaking in your ear all the way!!

Where is God During Times of Crisis?

I saw an article a few days ago that asked where God is during crises like the Coronavirus. The next line started with “No one knows…” I basically wanted to throw something at that point, and it’s been sitting on my heart ever since. (This is not an attack on whoever wrote that article. I’m sure they meant well.)

So, where is God in times like this?

He is most assuredly sitting on His throne in heaven.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!” Isaiah 6:1-3

 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. Revelation 4:2

Why would the writer of Hebrews tell us to go to the throne of the Ancient of Days if He isn’t there anymore?

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

On top of all that, beloved, God Himself dwells in me, and in anyone who has made Jesus the Lord of their lives.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16

God remains on His throne, and in those of us who believe.

God did not send this pandemic.

God has not left the building.

Not everything that happens is the will of God. (We can see this in the simple fact that God desires all men to be saved [see 1 Timothy 2:4], yet, there are a lot of people out there without Him at the moment.)

God will and is working this to the good of those whole love Him, just as He said He would in Romans 8:28.

God is not scared by your questions. Ask Him.

When you’re done, ask Him what He’d like you to be doing right now to be a positive force in this crazy world.

WE love you, and more importantly, HE loves you!

Resurrection Day… The day does matter…………..

This time of year we hear a lot about “easter”, but the word is not easter in our scriptures, if you look up the word, it is the word “pesach” or Passover. Also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Easter is the name of a pagan holiday that the church used to mark resurrection day to “pull in pagans” many centuries ago, that, eggs, spring and bunnies….Whether this is good or bad isn’t the point of this blog post. But it is a historical fact and so it’s important to understanding the whole picture. The church, I believe, did this with good intentions but it has lead us away from scriptures and that to me is the problem now. So let’s see what God said about this day.

We will start by just reviewing some basics to set a foundation.

Jesus (Yeshua) died as our passover lamb.

He rose 3 days later.

Do not let anyone talk you into the nonsense about 2 and a half days, partial days and all the other stuff out there to try to “explain” away mixing a pagan holiday with the greatest day of the year, which sadly the church did for centuries. The Word says 3 days, the picture given of Jonah is 3 days, and Yeshua rose again after 3 days. The Word says it, that’s the end of it! 🙂

Now, the hebrew month called Nisan, is the month we are going to pay attention to here. (God set a new calendar in Exodus 12 changing the 7th month to the 1st month. You’ll see this as you study it out. Prior to Exodus 12 Nisan is called the 7th month, after Exodus 12 it is called the 1st month.)

Passover (Pesach) begins at Sundown on Nisan 14 . So Jesus (Yeshua) rose again on Nisan 17 (after 3 full days.)

So Resurrection day is Nisan 17.

And you will hear folks say it doesn’t matter what day, as long as you remember/celebrate etc. I am not trying to tell you to not enjoy your weekly services with your church and family at all, but I feel it is very important to walk in the truth and to know that the date mattered enough to God that He “marked” it with pictures and shadows of what was coming all through the bible so that we could be assured by the date (foretold signs) that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Messiah.

Jesus (Yeshua) rose as Firstfruits (1 Corinthians 15:20) , on the Feast of Firstfruits so that we too can be First Fruits (James 1:18 )

God picked the day and it matters.

I am here to tell you God shows us it does matter. He left a bread crumb about Nisan 17 all through scripture pointing us to the resurrection. Each “crumb” is a picture of the greatest event in human history.

  1. Nissan 17, Noah’s Ark safely rested on Mt. Ararat (Gen 8:4) Note that the seventh month was later designated as the first month at the time of the Exodus (Ex. 12:2).
  2. Nissan 17, Hebrews entered Egypt (Exo 12:40-41) 430 years before deliverance.
  3. Nissan 17, Moses led the Israelites through the Parting of the Red Sea (Exo 3:18, 5:3)
  4. Nissan 17, Israel entered and ate the first fruit of the Promised Land (Joshua 5:10-12)
  5. Nissan 17, The cleansing of the Temple by Hezekiah (eight hundred years after entering the promised land. (2 Chronicles 29:1-28)
  6. Nissan 17, Queen Esther saved the Jews from Elimination (Esther 3:12, 5:1)
  7. Nissan 17, The Resurrection of Messiah

I am only briefly giving you this info because it is vitally important that you get into the Word and study it out yourselves and see the amazing miracle of  “Bread crumbs” pointing to Messiah’s resurrection, starting in Genesis 🙂

The date/day DOES matter! 🙂

HE IS RISEN!

Here are two other links that give more info for you to study. The odds of these events all happening on the same day are astronomical. Don’t you love when the bible proves that it’s God-breathed?!!!

More for you to study on this topic:

First Fruits and Nisan 17th

and

The Mystery of the 17th!

 

 

Be blessed!!

An Invitation for 2019!!

bible

As the new year approaches, we are preparing our schedule for daily bible reading. The importance of which I can’t emphasize enough. We need to eat food every day and our spirit needs fed every day, sometimes more than once a day, too!

So with this in mind we are preparing to join together to do a daily reading in the online Christian Hope Facebook Group and we would like to invite you to join us!

We will share the reading each day (A New Testament Chapter on Monday through Friday and readings from Psalms and Proverbs on Saturday and Sunday) . We also share things that the Lord show us in the days reading, we discuss questions, and other things as the Lord leads and we would love to have you with us! We will also periodically share other things in the group for prayer, songs, prophecy or other discussion. You can just read, you can join in as you have time through the day or evening, or you can just pop in when you have time.

Click here to find us on Facebook and hit the Join button! We’ll see you there!

Friday – Week 50

Daily Meditation:  Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?

– One of the scriptural meanings of the word meditate is “to murmur or mutter”, to speak the Word to yourself only. As often as you think of it today, preach it to your mind, preach it to your soul, preach it to your Spirit.  It is amazing how a scripture that doesn’t seem to apply to me that morning, suddenly touches so many areas of my life as I meditate on it during the day.

Daily Reading:   Ps. 117, 125 

– Each week contains only five readings, allowing you to miss a day, or catch up. You can read both the Old and New Testament assignments for each day and complete the entire Bible in one year. Or, read the New Testament readings for each day and finish the New Testament in a year.
The full schedule can be found HERE.
