Where is Christ in Halloween 2018 WTF? (Worth The Fun)

This is the question we truly must ask ourselves:

Is celebrating Halloween Worth the Fun?

One day my husband and I were outside and a neighbor was walking by taking a basket of Halloween candy to another neighbor. When my husband asked her why she was doing it, since it was not of Christ, she said “We do it for the candy!  For the kids!”

Have we who believe in the bible, dropped so low in our faith that we are willing to participate in wicked celebrations, just for some candy?

I could write a thousand more words about why we should be avoiding candy to begin with but the deeper issue is, why are many people excusing and taking part in what is clearly known as a celebration that is against the bible?

In this special message, Where is Christ in Halloween 2018 WTF? (Worth The Fun) you will be challenged with The Word and invited to “put on the Truth of Holiness” instead of giving way to envy and falling into sin.  It is time to climb out and be set apart.  The church, the body of Messiah “needs to stop acting like the world and be holy.”

If you are a believer in the bible, and are willing to allow the Messiah to dwell in you, then listen to this message, Where is Christ in Halloween 2018 WTF? (Worth The Fun)

Give All Diligence

 

In one of my morning devotions this week, 1 Kepha 5:8 was the focus but as a read it, I had to find out what “these things” are.  So then I backed up all the way to verse 5 and saw the list of “these things.” And then I began to think through verses 5-8 more carefully.

Do I have “these things in” me?

If I do have “these things in me” are they growing or are they stagnant?

If “these things are in me and growing” what fruitfulness do I have?

What kind of fruitfulness should be evident in me?

Okay, the fruitfulness is knowledge but knowledge of what?  Knowledge of history?  Knowledge of laws?  Knowledge of practices?

The knowledge that comes from the fruitfulness of “these things” is of Adonai YAHUSHA Messiah.

Why?

Because He expects me to have fruit in my life.  Just like the fig tree, He expects at any moment for me to be growing and producing more and more – not staying the same.  My fruit should reflect Him of whom I believe in.

Furthermore, I must be diligent (purposefully, carefully and persistently) seeking to add “faith, virtue (show high moral standards), knowledge, temperance (self-control),patience, the fear of YAHUAH, brotherly kindness (friendly, generous, considerate) and love” daily.

Right now, patience has been a big issue for me this past week.  I’ve had to remind myself that showing impatience will not produce the result that I am reaching for.  But showing patience takes time and I certainly won’t get immediate results, which is frustrating.    But through this time, my patience will grow and I have to choose to have faith that eventually the patience that I have shown now, will result in fruit later that reflects the knowledge of belief in YAHUSHA Messiah!!!!

 

 

 

Shabbat Message: Great Is His Faithfulness

Where is my focus?
What kills my faith?
Why am I lonely?
Where am I casting my cares?
What can I choose to allow into my heart?
What must I believe?
What am I worried about?
Where do I get encouragement?
Who is my light?
Where do I put my trust?
Whose joy is in me?
Whose am I?
Where do I find strength?
What am I finding my joy in?

I know I have had the very same questions and maybe you have too. What are we to do with our questions? Where are we to turn?

Today’s Shabbat Message Great Is His Faithfulness, is straight from the heart. We all have faith but we are only flesh. In life, we all deal with Anxiety, Fear, Loneliness, Discouragement and Lack of Joy-but that is not the end. YAHUAH the Father and YAHUSHA Messiah (Christ) His Son is there with us. In fact, HIS word has many promises of hope.

I invite you today, to hear of our heavenly Father’s Faithfulness and His love toward You today, in Great Is His Faithfulness.

 

Shabbat Message: The Simplicity of Messiah (Christ)

Complicated.

That’s what salvation has become.

Simple, true salvation has become buried under Torah keeping, man-made laws, traditions, so -called “new” insights, classes for salvation, words that are always changing, do this, don’t do that, moons, new moons, calendars, clothing, reading, regulations of worship, prayers rooted in the Talmud…placing a yoke of bondage or completely blocking the free gift of grace.

Those things that complicate salvation suck the Joy Out of Grace and pollute our life in Messiah how it can truly be lived.

But when a person just reads the bible-the words of The Messiah for him/herself, they will find none of that.  They find freedom.  That’s what we need to get back to.

In this week’s Shabbat Message: The Simplicity of Messiah (Christ) – you will hear about salvation, plain and simple.  You will see clearly that Love is passed down through Grace and the life changing encounter that the Good News Brings.

I was particularly encouraged to hear and read a portion of scripture that shows a truly awesome testimony of a man who beat two followers of Messiah, but later found himself asking “what must I do to be saved?”  Salvation was presented to him and his house hold, immediately, simply, and they were baptized.

If you need water for your soul, if you need to hear the good news simple and uncluttered, if you want your freedom back, I encourage you to listen to this week’s Shabbat Message: The Simplicity of Messiah (Christ).
