Second year in a row I’ve had the pleasure of being in Squaw Valley and with almost a 100 fold, we celebrated. Being able to relax in such a beautiful setting is truly a growing experience. Single service Saturday and Sunday made it even more relaxing. So what does one take with him or her self after years of keeping God’s Holy Days? When the Father instituted His Holy Days, He intended it to be a gathering of His children. He wants all of his children to come to the knowledge of his way,
1 Timothy 2:3-5New King James Version (NKJV)
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, (Not the God)
This one God and father and creator of all things wishes and hopes that all men including his son would do the right thing. As any father would be proud of a son doing the right thing when know one is watching. The father saves his creation through appointed savior’s. Noah saved his family and everyone else perished. Then God raised up Moses and made him Elohim to his people and saved them through Moses. Moses knew there would be another deliver coming that would save through the changing of the heart. Israel was stubborn and Moses anguished over his people’s lack of conversion, and commitment to their God and father. The prophets longed for another savior one that could restore what Adam an Eve had destroyed their intimate relationship with the father. When they sinned The father would no longer walk with them in the garden and began the planting of the next seed his very own begotten son Jesus who the father designated his savior to the world. Abraham rejoiced in God’s plan.
The Father led Israel out of Egypt by a pillar of fire representing his presence with them and their security from foreign invaders.
Ex. 13:21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.
The Believers Are Filled with the Holy Spirit
2 When Pentecost, the fiftieth day after Passover, came, all the believers were together in one place. 2 Suddenly, a sound like a violently blowing wind came from the sky and filled the whole house where they were staying. 3 Tongues that looked like fire appeared to them. The tongues arranged themselves so that one came to rest on each believer.
This Same Holy spirit that was with ancient Israel was now making its presence with the repented baptized new covenant people. The father again showing he was with his children and was now beginning the reconciliation of the first fruits to himself. This great God and father gave Peter boldness to preach. Acts.2:17-Men of Israel, listen to what I say: Yeshua from Nazareth was a man whom God brought to your attention. You know that through this man God worked miracles, did amazing things, and gave signs. 23 By using men who don’t acknowledge Moses’ Teachings, you crucified Yeshua, who was given over to death by a plan that God had determined in advance. 24 But God brought him from death back to life and destroyed the pains of death, because death had no power to hold him. 25 This is what David meant when he said about Yeshua:
‘I always see the Lord in front of me.
I cannot be moved because he is by my side.
26 That is why my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices.
My body also rests securely
27 because you do not abandon my soul to the grave
or allow your holy one to decay.
28 You make the path of life known to me.
In your presence there is complete joy.’
29 “Brothers, I can tell you confidently that our ancestor David died and was buried and that his tomb is here to this day. 30 David was a prophet and knew that God had promised with an oath that he would place one of David’s descendants on his throne. 31 David knew that the Messiah would come back to life, and he spoke about that before it ever happened. He said that the Messiah wouldn’t be left in the grave and that his body wouldn’t decay. (David new the father and his psalms declare his only God and father and the father revealed to David that through his lineage he would father the Messiah.)
32 “God brought this man Yeshua back to life. We are all witnesses to that. 33 God used his power to give Yeshua the highest position. Yeshua has also received and has poured out the Holy Spirit as the Father had promised, and this is what you’re seeing and hearing. 34 David didn’t go up to heaven, but he said,
‘The Lord said to my lord, (Adonia said to Adoni)
“Take my highest position of power
35 until I put your enemies under your control.” ’
36 “All the people of Israel should know beyond a doubt that God made Yeshua, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
Our Eternal Father and only God Walked with his creation in Eden spoke to Moses on the mountain, fathered his only begotten son through Mary, which is the seed of David, has through the sacrifice of his son started, the process of redemption through Pentecost the imparting of the fathers spirit, in all the first-fruits of His eternal plan.
