The Spirit of Truth

Illuminating the Word of God

Seven weeks and a day have passed since the time of Passover.  To Christians, this day is referred to as Pentecost and is remembered as the day when the apostles received the Holy Spirit.  It was first celebrated by the Israelites seven weeks after they were passed over by the last plague and delivered out of oppression.   It has been known as the Feast of Weeks throughout generations of Hebrews ever since.  The disciples of Y’hoshua observed this time, just as their forefathers had, as stated in the Acts of the Apostles.

The Pentecost and the Promise of God

This is a day celebrated by both the ‘Jews’ and the ‘Christians’ only in different ways. This being one of the feasts ordained by God for the children of Israel to observe throughout their generations. It marks the fiftieth day (7 weeks plus one day) after the Passover or Exodus of Israel out of Egypt. It is in commemoration of the day Moses received the Tablets of the Law. This was to establish the Covenant between God and Israel. The Feast of Weeks or Shavuot and to bring in the firstfruits of the harvest.

By some, May 31, 2020 will be celebrated as the Pentecost (the Greek word for fifty). Is it just a day to go to church and pay your tithe or is there something else there hidden from view? What is the significance?

Others, from the evenings of May 28 to May 30 will be celebrating the “Feast of Weeks.” It also commemorates the Feast of the Firstfruits when the firstfruits of the wheat harvest were to be brought before God in thanksgiving. Is it just a harvest or tithe of wheat? Is it a time to eat cheese? Or is there something hidden from view? What is the significance?

“The Trumpet shall Sound” The Day of the Lord is Here! (Part II)

As in the Days of Lot

Jesus said what the Day of the Lord would be.

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Adam is revealed.”

Luke 17:28-30
Sodom suffers the wrath of God

What was going on in the days of Lot?

“The men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”

Genesis 13:13

An Epiphany

the-three-magi-Epiphany

Many are anticipating the ‘epiphany’ or manifestation of the Messiah in these times of Tribulation. Christ himself revealed how he would manifest and to whom. This article will show the false and the true.

The word ‘epiphany’ is one of Greek origin. It is defined as; 1. to manifest or to show 2. an appearance or manifestation of a divine being 3. a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something (as when something ‘dawns on you’, you suddenly or slowly perceive or understand).

Jesus is Not God

Jesus is not God.  Jesus, more accurately known as Y’hoshua, is a son or child of God, one of many.  Most “Christian” religions teach that Jesus and God are one and the same.  Jesus himself said otherwise.  Where?

 “…Why call you me good? there is none good but one, that is, God…”  Matthew 19:17

Madness of Mind – Another Mass Shooting

The Earth is filled with Violence…

Jesus said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with …the cares of this life, and so that day come upon you in unawareness. For as a snare it will come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.  Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Adam.” In Matthew 24:21 he says the end time will be a time of Tribulation not seen since the beginning of the world unto this time nor ever shall be again.

In the Book of Deuteronomy 4:29-31, Moses says when you see these things happening, “If from there you shall seek the LORD your God, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn to the LORD your God and will be obedient to His voice; (For the LORD your God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the Covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”

A Time for Everything

A Time for Everything - Stars Turning

“To every thing there is a set time,

and a time to every purpose under heaven:” (Eccl 3:1)

Ever since the foundation of the world, there has been a set time for everything in the heavens.  This is fairly common knowledge, as there are apps that can show you what the sky looked like on any given date.  Just like the Moon, planets, & stars follow a certain path in the sky and never deviate from it regardless of the year of their appearance, the same is done on Earth by those of God.

“A time to be born & a time to die…

…a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which has been planted;” (Eccl 3:2)

The Prophets of God have always come at a certain time, and that time has always been the perfect time of their appearance on the stage of history.  When they have proclaimed God’s Word, they have both planted the Good Seed in the minds of those who hear & plucked up the false grains grown from bad seed. (see Matt 13)  Those announcing the Righteous Message of God do so at the perfect time and then leave when their time is done.

Likewise, the celestial bodies in the sky appear at their proper time and afterward disappear.  Recently there have been some amazing shows in the skies, or heavens, involving the Sun, Moon, & Stars because they were set in motion long ago to appear now.  The same is being done on Earth, for now is the time!

Heavenly Perspective

Many believe that Jesus physically resurrected after he was crucified. However, the Apostle Phillip says, “Those who say that the master/teacher first died and then rose up are in error, for he first arose and then died. If someone does not first attain to the resurrection, wouldn’t that person die? As God lives, that one would be dead already.” The Gospel of Phillip verse 15

Paul writes in his Epistle to the Ephesians, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has quickened/awakened us together with Christ (by grace/purpose you are saved); and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in/with Christ Jesus;” Ephesians 2:4-6

John wrote in Revelation, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead.” Rev 1:5

To America: “Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land…”

“Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land to all the Inhabitants thereof…”

This proclamation is etched on what is known as the “symbol of American Independence” – the Liberty Bell housed in Philadelphia, the City of “Brotherly Love.” But where does this saying come from?

The “Liberty Bell”

It is a quote from Biblical Scripture, Leviticus 25:10 pertaining to the Jubilee called for by God after He brought the House of Israel out of their oppression in Egypt…

Exodus from Egypt

“For the LORD our God, it is He that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:” Josh 24:17
