To ‘Walk with God’ is to be in agreement with Him. In these troublous times it seems that no one can agree with anyone on anything! Unity in Truth can only be found in the Word of the LORD. Truly, ‘Two cannot walk together unless they are in agreement?’
God has promised to send Messengers who will prepare the Way before Him. Seek His Face and walk with Him in agreement.
The rulers of this world are forging ahead to establish what they are calling a ‘Great Reset’ with a ‘New Social Contract’. It’s all about economics, employment, and a reset of currencies. The truth is, they know they have not got much time. This Age or time for the world has come to its end. The kingdoms of this world will perish while God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth and all that is therein, is establishing His Kingdom of Righteousness on Earth, as it is in Heaven with His New Covenant. He has a reset scheduled as well. Which one will it be for you?
“A City upon a Hill” is a phrase derived from the teaching of Jesus Christ in his ‘Sermon on the Mount’. Its use in political rhetoric is used in United States politics as a declaration of American Exceptionalism, referring to America acting as a “beacon of hope” for the world.
Today, November 8, 2022, the full Moon passed through the earth’s shadow, giving the earth a beautiful light show in a total Lunar Eclipse and what is known as a ‘Blood Moon‘. The Moon turning to Blood is mentioned in Scripture, but what does it signify?
Circumcision, like Baptism, has become a tradition, custom or requirement that differentiates greatly between the religions of the world. ‘Jews’ are well known adherents to a physical circumcision as a way to continue the Covenant of Circumcision between Abraham and God. Muslims consider circumcision an act of ‘purification’ and Christians are split on whether a physical circumcision is required. Catholics are against it and Orthodox Christians are for it. Many protestant Christians, like Catholics, see a water Baptism as the replacement or extension of Circumcision, but this approach varies between denominations.
Consider, as well, the discrepancies between government guidance on the issue. In the US, the government has framed circumcision as a health issue. World War II recruits were routinely circumcised. It is still a commonplace procedure for infants prior to leaving the hospital. Many parents support the practice in adherence to government health guidance. In 1965 over 85% of the US population circumcised male infants. That number has been dropping ever since. Meanwhile, several European countries have tried to outright ban the practice. With such a dizzying array of understanding and motivation for circumcision, has anyone actually cut to the heart of what God calls for?
There has been a “special relationship” between these two countries since their birth. They represent the two sons of Joseph, son of Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh. Family ties are hard to be broken. These two were born into Egypt in the years of plenty. Their father provided food for everyone in the time of the famine and was greatly admired. Although they’ve had their differences, like brothers, they always settle them and get along with each other in peace. This relationship is now being threatened to come to an end in hostility. It will be a time of Great Tribulation.
It is indeed a momentous occasion for America. Four hundred years ago, on November 11, 1620, the Pilgrims came ashore on land. That is now in Provincetown on Cape Cod. The Pilgrims’ story is a central theme in the history and culture of the United States of America. The Pilgrim Fathers were that band of Puritans who founded the colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.
A pilgrim is defined a person who journeys a long distance to some sacred place as an act of devotion. They were escaping religious persecution and going to the Promised Land.
The Pilgrims Landing
“PROVINCETOWN – The year 1620 is etched in the annals of world history. It is the year a group of English settlers known as the Pilgrims seeking religious freedom boarded their ship, Mayflower. They braved a hazardous trip across the Atlantic Ocean to establish a new home.”
Seeing this date etched in Plymouth Rock is like seeing the writing on the Wall. “Mene, mene, teckel, upharsin” in the time of Daniel spelled the end for the Babylonian king and the end of the Babylonian captivity. It marks an especially important date for the people of God.
Finding our Ancestral Roots has become a pastime and an important aspect of life for many lately with the availability of DNA tests and programs to help people reconnect with the roots of their Family Tree. But most can only go back a few generations and a few hundred years at best from their own with which to connect. But what if you could go back millennia? Back to the beginning? Back to the roots!
Ancient Roots of Worship
Looking back at the ways of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Assyria, we find many of those ways still being followed by modern-day people to this day. They’re not aware of their roots. But these practices can provide important clues for those who are searching and want to know their own roots.
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 Tribulationnot 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.”
