WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND PORTAL RESONATING WITH GREAT GRACE

Winter Oneder Woman Snow

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6).

The quintessential verse of the Feast of Miracles is Zechariah 4:6. With each Biblical Feast, a different portal opens in the heavens over the earth. How many of you know that eternal truths and realities are always available, but there are seasons when a greater grace is given by God for them to be realized?

The Lord’s Feasts are His occasions for celebrating, just as the Ten Commandments are His ordained commandments. God created us to celebrate Him His glorious and creative ways. Read the Gospels! Yeshua loved a party! His first miracle was at the wedding feast at Cana when He turned 180 gallons of water into fine wine (John 2:6).

The spring feasts of the Lord speak of Yeshua’s first coming. The fall feasts speak of Yeshua’s second coming. The winter feasts of Chanukah and Purim tell the story of the church and her journey until the Messiah comes again. Chanukah is not called a feast forever (like Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles, which are types and shadows of Yeshua’s ministry on earth). It’s a feast that celebrates the temporal walk of His church becoming the Bride.

What society has labeled “Jewish Feasts,” the Lord calls “the feasts of the Lord.” Significantly, He emphasizes: “They are MY feasts” (Lev. 23:2). They have been called Jewish Feasts because remnants of Jewish people have faithfully rehearsed the feasts of the Lord since they have been instituted. All believers in the first century celebrated the feasts of the Lord, including Chanukah and Purim. It is the Christian Church’s primordial practice. Yeshua Ha Machiach (Jesus Christ) and the early church continued to observe the feasts laid out in His Word, because they understood that they portray the Messiah. These observances were not done for righteousness’ sake, for the early church embraced Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross as the only way in which they could obtain their right standing in and before God.

Yesterday, we discussed that an Ancient Golden Gate of Thanksgiving and Awe has been prepared for this special season of lights, miracles and dedicating our temples to walk as Yeshua did. Every year this Chanukah portal opens to a greater grace to become ONE with Him as His pure and spotless Bride. This year His Winter One-dear-land portal is not only resonating with awe, but with great grace. The number that speaks of great grace is “15” (5 x 5 x 5). It’s been 15 years, since Yeshua (Jesus) first came to me epiphanously. He was weeping as He told me: “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart.” After He paused to let that bombshell sink in, He added: “Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride.” Please read:  http://wp.me/p158HG-4E . THIS WILL BE KNOWN AS A YEAR OF GREAT MIRACLE-WORKING GRACE.

“Then he said to me, This addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees is the word of the Lord to Zerubabbel saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit of Whom the oil is a symbol, says the Lord of hosts. For who are you, O great mountain of human obstacles? Before Zerubbabel who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him you shall become a mere molehill! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone of the new temple with loud shouting of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! (Zechariah 4:6-7 AMP).

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 5:

The audio-visual displays of the prophetic reality of the Messiah’s first and second coming (portrayed in the Biblical Feasts) can only serve to bring His people into a deeper relationship with one another and with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Aligning with His calendar enables us to know and understand the Lord’s exact times for the world and set appointments for mankind.

Mo-ed is the Hebrew word translated as “feasts” in the KJV of Leviticus 23:2: “Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts.” Technically, mo-ed is not the Hebrew word for feasts, but it carries the concept of calling God’s people together for His sacred assemblies, which celebrate the annual recurrence of particular dates marking notable events. To mo-ed is to have an appointment, a fixed time or season, a cycle or year, an assembly, an appointed time, a set time or exact time. According to Scripture, the Sabbaths sets our weeks. The New Moons sets our months. The Lord’s festivals set our years.

In 2 Chronicles 8:13, the primitive root for mo-ed is the Hebrew word ya-ad, which is also defined as fixing an appointment – like writing a critical meeting in your day-timer. But more importantly, this primitive root implies that the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, He is directing us into a certain position, and He is engaging us for marriage (i.e. be betroth). Just as mo-ed in space refers to the locality where mankind has their appointed place of assembly for an appointed purpose, so mo-ed in time is a point in time which summons God’s people communally to an appointed activity. As it is written: “As You summon to a feast day” (Lamentations 2:22). “We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near… You say, ‘I choose the appointed time” (Psalm 75:1-2). “Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals” (Isaiah 33:20). The question remains for Christians: If we aren’t celebrating the feasts of the Lord, can we truly be betrothed to Him?

DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] What is the Spirit saying to you about the Feasts of the Lord (i.e. Biblical Feasts)?

[2] Is there a need for you to tap into His great miracle-working grace? If so, tap into this season of great grace when Yeshua walks in the place where all believers meet (i.e. Solomon’s Colonnade) declaring His miracles.

“LET THERE BE LIGHT” – PROTOPLASM OF CREATION

beresheit

“Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.” (Genesis 1:3-4 NKJV)

“Let there be light…” is the first declaration of God’s will in Scripture, but He could not have spoke it without first creating a language to communicate His thoughts. The human need to formulate thoughts in language, with letters being the language’s building blocks, only emulates how the Lord spoke in the beginning. Before God could speak the universe into existence, He had to first create the language to speak forth His will. “…Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they existed, and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

A fundamental concept for Jewish mystics is that the letters of the Hebrew Alef-Bet were created first of all out of nothing but God’s desire – His divine will. They say, “By use of the letters, the Holy One, Blessed is He, created all the worlds.” Notice the hidden meaning behind the first verse in the Bible, “In the beginning God created alef- tav the heavens and the earth.” Alef being the first letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet while tav is the last of twenty-two.

Throughout Scripture there are random references to alef-tav that have been largely disregarded when Jews read their Bible, or when Scripture has been translated into other languages, including English. So far it seems that mainly Jewish mystics have tried to delve into the reason why those random alef-tavs exist in the written word. Perhaps these scholars have overlooked the Messianic reference in Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: I am the first (alef) and I am the last (tav), and there is no God besides Me.” Yeshua (Jesus) declares in Revelation 1:8, “I am the Alpha and the Omega… who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Yeshua is the alef-tav or as He says, I AM the alef-tav, and there is no God besides Me.

The spiritual realm, where the Almighty dwells, is composed of perfection – pure thoughts and concepts – not needing to be clothed in words and letters. When Yeshua created the Hebrew Alef-Bet, He ordered spiritual forces of creation through its twenty-two sacred letters before there was even one other act of creation. The existence of everything created from people to pebbles depends upon the spiritual content with which it was created. By uttering the famous “Let there be…” words, the Word Yeshua created all of what can be classified as Creation:

“He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation, for in Him all things were created, both in heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, … all things have been created through Him and for Him. And He has existed before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:15-17)

It has been a mystery to me how Yeshua “existed before all things” and was “the first born of all creation” at the same time. When one understands that the array of individual spiritual forces ordered via the Hebrew Alef-Bet were resident in Yeshua before those letters or that language was created, one can get a glimpse into the mystery of Jesus being the first born of all creation.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). The Word is made up of letters. “In the beginning God created alef-tav…” (Genesis 1:1) The letters — these individual spiritual forces – inherent in Christ were birthed from His essential, intrinsic essence, which was originally included wholly in the Word. The first born of all creation is the very thing that constitutes every living substance. It is the protoplasm of the universe. It is the individual spiritual forces that originally belonged, and still belong, to the nature of Christ. The first born of all creation is the letters of the Word – the Hebrew Alef-Bet. Basically, Jesus’ spoken words marshaled spiritual forces that facilitated Creation according to His divine will.

Like some sort of excellent, exalted scientist, Yeshua spoke the perfect blend of spiritual forces that produces light (Genesis 1:3). Another blend produces heaven and all its fullness (Genesis 1:6) Yet another blend produces vegetation yielding seed (Genesis 1:11), and so on ad infinitum. With the words, “Let there be…” creation came into existence in a time-space continuum at that primeval instant. The words that brought creation into being remain within in them and with us every instant. He “upholds all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3). Everything continues to exist because not an instant goes by without God continuing to say, in effect, “Let there be…” in the sense that the Divine will of the original six days remain in force.

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 3:

“In the beginning God created alef- tav the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1). If we don’t leave out one jot or one tittle, the literal translation of Genesis 1:1 speaks of “in the beginning God created” the Hebrew Alef-Bet first.

Given the fact that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is the protoplasm of creation. Given the fact that it pre-dated the rest of creation and is the first born of all creation, the letters and their order is vitally important. The Bible says that we are the letters of the Messiah written with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts (1 Corinthians 3:2-3). Christ in us the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27) is THE source of all true light and revelation, and He resides in the heart of every believer. He is the one that enlightens a person’s heart with a message from God.

As we eagerly await His coming, Let there be light! “Arise, My people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. All nations will come to your light” (Isaiah 60:1-3)

DISCUSSION: Please select how you’d like to involve others (there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] Share an experience of being connected to the Light and any revelation that came with it.

[2] What is written on the tablet of your heart? What do you cherish?

[3] What does the phrase “Let there be light” mean to you personally?

ENTER HIS WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND GATES WITH THANKSGIVING

Chanakah - Mom & Son Stars Chanukiah

At sundown tonight the Feast of Lights begins, with something unprecedented happening this year. Thanksgiving and Chanukah will coincide – an extremely rare event! The LORD is telling me that THERE IS A SPECIAL AND GREAT GRACE GIVEN THIS SEASON FOR GOD’S PEOPLE TO ENTER HIS WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND GATES WITH THANKSGIVING (Psalm 100:4).

Winter One-der-land is a mystery, which God has held for such a time as this. We shall all be changed. We shall all be gathered together in ONE according to His grace (Eph 1:10). There are several doors by which our oneness will manifest. One of those doors opens at sundown tonight. A Winter One-der-land portal of oneness opens, and we all get to choose whether to enter this Kingdom reality, or not. A gateway of awe has been prepared for this special season of lights, miracles and dedicating our temples to walk as Jesus did. “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade” (John 10:22-23). Just as a reminder, we are told in 1 John 2:6 that the one who says he abides in God that person will walk in the same manner as Jesus walked.

Not only did Yeshua (Jesus) walk in Solomon’s Colonnade during the Feast of Dedication declaring His miraculous works are plainly revealed, but Acts 5:12 informs us that all the believers met together at Solomon’s Colonnade. Did you get that? ALL – every single believer – met on the east side of the temple – the location of Solomon’s Colonnade both physically and spiritually. BTW – Chanukah (HanukKah) has three additional names depicting its spiritual realities: the Feast of Dedication, Feast of Lights and the Feast of Miracles.

If you’d like to learn a little more about HIS WINTER ONE-DER-LAND, please refer to:

[1] WINTER ONE-DERR-LAND – http://wp.me/p158HG-aH

[2] WALKING IN A WINTER ONE-DEAR-LAND – http://wp.me/p158HG-gN .

Several people have told me that they’d like to enter His Winter One-Der-Land Gates with Thanksgiving this year, but they need a little assist. Without going into a lot of background (we will speak of these things as the 8 days of Chanukah progress), we are going to post a daily Chanukah Devotion for those who would like a little help as well as instructions on how to kindle the Chanukah candles.

Chanukah is not one of the seven “feasts of the Lord” specified in Leviticus 23, but one of the two winter feasts mentioned in the Bible. If we operate on the premise that the entire Bible is inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16-17), we need to contemplate why these feasts are in God’s Word. The seven feasts are audio-visual displays of the prophetic reality of the Messiah’s first and second coming. These winter feasts depict the church’s journey to become His pure and spotless Bride.

Christian scholars have used Colossians 2:16-17 to rationalize why Christians no longer exclusively celebrate the Lord’s Feasts (Lev. 23:2). “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath Day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” Yeshua is the substance; but we must comprehend that a shadow always resembles its substance. When the Bible says it’s a shadow of things to come, it means that we will be answering to the Creator who is casting the shadow. BTW – There is no mixture in the Holy One of Israel.

Believers are not told not to celebrate the Lord’s feasts in Col. 2:16-17, but not to let anyone judge us with regard to them. Meaning we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how they celebrate a Biblical Feast. However, there is an assumption in the statement “Don’t let anyone judge you” that God’s people are already eating, drinking, and celebrating these things listed. It is similar to Matthew 6’s “when you pray,” “when you fast,” and “when you give to the needy.”

So with these things in mind, I will briefly share how my Christian family has celebrated Chanukah for the past 15 years. We keep it very simple. It’s mainly a time for coming to the Lord’s Table to connect to Him as well as with family and friends. We make as many special meals as we can with special linens, dishes, etc. Potluck is the order of the day when larger numbers get together. If we don’t have time to do a special meal, it’s just fine to dedicate our mac-n-cheese to Him 😉 The point is to connect to the One who still walks in Solomon’s Colonnade and still performs miracles in that place. We light candles, like our Jewish brethren, because there are some very deep and profound truths behind that as well as facilitating a particular One New Man in the Messiah oneness between Jews and Gentiles. After we light the candles and say a blessing over them, we read a short devotional and share our hearts. Then to top it all off we open small gifts. Our son was 5-years-old when we came out of Babylon and laid down Christmas, to become part of His pure and spotless Bride, so giving gifts is something we do. Do you have to? Definitely not. But with one of my love languages being gift giving, I really like it! That’s about it. Hope you enjoy today’s short, but sweet devotion. The Lord wanted me to recycle HAYAH. Try it! You’ll be amazed at the Winter One-der-land heavenly portal that will open! Have fun and give em heaven!!!

CHANUKAH DEVOTION FOR NIGHT 1:

In Exodus 3:14, we are told. God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” In the original Hebrew, it is commonly translated “I will be who I will be” – HAYAH. “Hayah” can be simplified into a righteous State of Being that resonates at the same frequency in which it was originally created.

“Hayah” is a unique verb. It carries a meaning in the past of what was done. It carries a meaning in the future of what will be done, but a presence tense does not exist for this verb. Instead, it is given that the verb “to be” is just there. It’s who you are, like “I Son” the “am” in “I am Son” is already understood to exist, and it manifests in what a person is actually doing. This is all of our present reality. Let it BE LOVE.

THINK ABOUT IT: Please select the participation questions that best suit you (or there’s freedom to do whatever the Spirit leads):

[1] What’s your present reality? What are you doing to show His Kingdom and His righteousness to those around you?

[2] What are some creative ideas to show others the I AM WHO I AM in you?

(This devotional was part of a previous post: LET YOUR “I AM WHO I AM” LOVE LIGHT SHINE! http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-gh .)
