It’s HOLY GHOST SEASON!
Our Theme for This Year's SHABUOT is:
'Have You Received the Holy Ghost Since You Believed?' Acts 19:2
"And when The DAY OF SHABUOT was fully come,
they were all with one accord in one place" Acts 2:1, (Cepher)
PRAISE AHAYAH Family. The MOST HIGH, HOLY, and ETERNAL KING over All kings,
rulers, governments of All the Earth. The ONLY, TRUE, WISE and LIVING GOD.
THE RUACH ( /Spirit) and TRUTH, A Necessity for Israel & Mankind
Today’s WORD is linked to Today’s HEBREW GEM, which is a FUTURE PROPHECY about the DAY OF THE LORD, that foretells of YAHUAH’S returning to regather ISRAEL a second TIME. (See Today's Hebrew Gem Is 11:11 below)
YAHUAH Is A Spirit
As a Family, we are dedicated to making a SPIRITUAL return to AHAYAH, a return to Him, OUR HERITAGE in SPIRIT and TRUTH. Jn 4:24 Reminds us that:
“YAHUAH ( /God) is that RUACH (/Spirit) and they that worship Him must worship Him in RUACH (/ Spirit) and Truth.” (Cepher)
As I’ve often said, it is KEY that we don’t stumble at that same STUMBLING STONE that our ANCESTORS, who YAHUAH, Bless His HOLY NAME delivered from their FIRST EGYPT, were then unable to APPROPRIATE His PROMISE and ENTER INTO THEIR PROMISED LAND, because of their Lack of understanding.
“My People Are Detroyed For Lack of Knowledge” (Hos 4:6)
They failed to do the DEEPER SPIRITUAL WORK of returning fully to Him, by building RELATIONSHIP with Him to truly LEARN of Him and UNDERSTAND His WAYS.
“…Your fathers tempted me, proved me, and SAW MY WORKS FORTY YEARS.
10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN MY WAYS.
11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.” Heb 3:9-11
We Must “Labour to Enter Into His Rest” (Heb 4:9-11)
The danger of not putting in this work to draw near to YAHUAH, Paul goes on to explain is to “fall after the same example of unbelief.”
What a TRAGEDY, of that whole GENERATION of just under 2 million PEOPLE, only 2 PEOPLE entered into the PROMISED LAND, even though YAHUAH said,
“The works were finished from before the Foundation of the World” (Heb 4:3)
That means that YAHUAH actually prepared this INHERITANCE for them from before the beginning of TIME itself/ He even laid the FOUNDATIONS of the WORLD. Surely you would think, if YAHUAH had decreed this inheritance with such assurance and from HEAVEN they couldn’t have been able to miss it. But the REALITY of it is they did. We their DESCENDENTS stand in no less PERIL today. It’s not enough now that we know that we are YASHAR’EL-ites to make an ‘INTELLECTUAL’ or mental return to YAHUAH only, when I say that, I mean we can’t just do the 'basic' WORK of doing a ‘KNOWLEDGE TAKE-ON’ of our HISTORY and how we find ourselves, where we find ourselves as a PEOPLE today, and THINK that will be SUFFICIENT to save us. While this is important, it is not an END in itself, and moreover is highly DANGEROUS, because this is where our FOREFATHERS have always repeatedly stumbled As YESHUA reminded NICODEMUS,
“(We) Must Be Born Again” Jn 3:3
To even “SEE The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN”, and YASHAR’EL / Israel perhaps even more so (than others). We must be LED BY THE SPIRIT OF YAHUAH, The ‘RUACH HA’QODESH’ (/The HOLY SPIRIT). So now do you see the IMPORTANCE of my question? And our THEME for this YEAR’S SHABUOT:
'Have you received the holy ghost since you believed?'
This is what made ALL the difference, enabling JOSHUA and CALEB to enter in to the PROMISED LAND, while everyone else PERISHED. We must now embark upon doing this harder work, of building SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP with AHAYAH, LEARNING to be LED BY HIS (HOLY) SPIRIT.
The RUACH, (/The Holy Spirit) An Absolute Necessity
SHABUOT provides us with a moment for INTROSPECTION to ponder and consider our personal progress, a TIME to PAUSE, LOOK back to those who have gone on before, for example: those who experienced the FIRST PENTECOST who incidentally were of our PEOPLE, and also OUR ANCIENT PROGENITORS who came out of the FIRST EGYPT, and I am going to keep making the point that these were OUR PEOPLE BLACK YASHAR'EL-ites or ISRAELITES, those who would formerly have been known as NEGROES, whether others believe this statement to be divisive or not, because the historical whitewashing, misappropriation and mistelling of world, and our HISTORY and culture, has done such damage to everyone as many now, no longer know the truth, and as intended many don't know their true identity/ WHO they truely are. Incidentally a JUDGEMENT is coming on the NATIONS RESPONSIBLE for this. Anyone associated with Repairers of the Breach knows we have a commitment to street EVANGELISM. I personally have gone out into the streets of LONDON warning people everywhere to REPENT that a JUDGEMENT was already here. It was the last and final opportunity/ warning, (and am speaking here prophetically).
Coming back to look at the subject of our FOREFATHERS who came out of the First Egypt who though YAHUAH blessed them with every kind of ETERNAL BLESSING IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES, were unable to RECEIVE and enjoy them, because they had only a HEAD/ Mental knowledge of YAHUAH, without UNDERSTANDING. SHABUOT being as it is, memorialised into a HOLY DAY by our PROPHET MOSES for us, is a reminder to us that the HOLY SPIRIT is not an appendage or after-thought to our FAITH and WALK with AHAYAH. It is a NECESSITY.
Shabuot, A moment to check the spiritual fuel gauge
As have always said YAHUAH’S holidays or HOLY DAYS provide us with a moment to PAUSE in our busy LIVES, a TIME to take a momentary breath, and EXAMINE our own HEARTS, in the case of SHABUOT to CHECK the status and fuel gauge of our spiritual LIVES and ensure we have OIL IN OUR LAMPS SUFFICIENT, and are ready for the RETURN of YAHUAH OUR BRIDEGROOM.
So I'll conclude with our THEME for this Year's SHABUOT and question for you to ponder, as we go into the DAY OF SHABUOT: 'Have You Received The Holy Ghost Since You Believed?' Acts 19:2
“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own SALVATION with FEAR and TREMBLING. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." Phil 2:12-13
Today’s WORD is linked to Today’s HEBREW GEM, which is a FUTURE PROPHECY about the DAY OF THE LORD, that foretells of YAHUAH’S returning to regather ISRAEL a second TIME. We are often taught that this PROPHECY has already come to pass, but there are a number of BIBLICAL INDICATORS associated with this prophecy that have still not yet come to pass, including major events like the opening of YAHUAH’S 6th SEAL in Heaven, and His RETURN FOR HIS BRIDE, and also Joel 3, YAHUAH coming down to execute JUDGEMENT against the NATIONS, for the “CONTROVERSY OF ZION” (see Is 34:8). We may go on to look at this TOPIC post- SHABUOT, currently in CHRISTENDOM it is taught as ‘THE RAPTURE’ Doctrine, or 'the great catching away of the saints' however as I'll come on to show, this is too simplistic an interpretation in light of what the scriptures taken as a whole truely say about this event. A deeper reading of the texts that foretell what the CHURCH today calls the RAPTURE, are also mirrored, but for the most part are largely ignored by the ‘Christian Church’, in much of the Old or FIRST TESTAMENT.
