The Ministry of God's Word

 

 

Brothers and sisters at the Household of Israel Temple of Jesus Christ and to those saints who are with us in spirit, blessings to you.  The 7th month feasts are quickly approaching.  I pray that this season brings about spiritual nourishment, inspiration, edification, comfort, and joy.  After all, our lives can be so trying.  And not only on a personal level but collectively, as we occupy this earth, we are living in troubelous times.  Without a doubt, this is a time of darkness.  God's truth is scarcely preached.  This country's government is corrupt.  Mercy and goodness is rapidly decreasing.  Sodomy and violence is at an all time high.  Racism and hatred is now blatant as ever.   Natural disasters continue to rise and plague this world.  Know this, there is a falling away of goodness in this world.  This is the will of the Lord and it will continue to happen until His people have been saved and this earth is destroyed.  Therefore, we look to the holy convocations during the 7th month of Tisri as God commanded us that we may fulfill all righteousness and strive for perfection in spirit and truth.  Knowing that in keeping these holy days, we do so not for mere tradition but for what each day represents spiritually, for the hope of salvation and to be as our Father above.  Consider these scriptures my family of faith:   

Day of Trumpets:  Thursday, September 21st, 2017.  “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD,” (Leviticus 23: 24-25). 

Day of Atonement:  Sabbath, September 30th, 2017. “Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.  And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.  For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.  And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people,” (Leviticus 23: 27-30).

Feast of Tabernacles/Ingathering: Thursday, October 5th & Thursday, October 12th. “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.  On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.  Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein,” (Leviticus 23: 34-36)

Brothers and sisters, I pray for myself, my family, this church and all the saints across the world.  May God be with you all and enjoy the seventh month feasts.  Amen.
