HOLD FAST TO THE HEAD

Hands Holding Sepia

I so agree with Wendy Christie when she says: “If you want to hold on to idols this coming year, it will not go well with you. God’s mercy will cause a GREAT SEPARATION … There will be a great contrast between those who are IN CHRIST and those who are not. This is so ALL can SEE right where they stand and have a chance to REPENT. Make no mistake about it. This is an act of God’s mercy. IN CHRIST will be the ONLY safe place.” (For the complete word for 2014 from Wendy Christie, please see –https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=605175776221587&set=a.436008649804968.101323.436004819805351&type=1&theater).

My heart grieves; because I have witnessed this past holiday season a great number of people who love God dearly who are either unwilling or unable to look at the mixture involved in celebrating Christmas. I too see and have warned in my “THIS IS CHRISTMAS” series of articles (see below) that people who hold onto idols will be on the short end of the stick when it comes to the contrast between those who are IN CHRIST and those who are not. Yeshua can not, and will not, join Himself to idols, and Christmas is the Granddaddy of them all – literally being made in the exact same image as the Golden Calf that Aaron built (Refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-2m and http://wp.me/p158HG-kH ).

This is a year that everyone will know where they stand in relation to being IN CHRIST. I again use Wendy Christie’s words in this regard: “There will be a great contrast between those who are IN CHRIST and those who are not. This is so ALL can SEE right where they stand and have a chance to REPENT. Make no mistake about it. This is an act of God’s mercy. On one hand you will SEE judgment and on the other justice. On one hand you will SEE chaos and on the other the ORDER of God. On one hand you will SEE condemnation and on the other great blessing.” If there appears to be judgment from the Lord, chaos or condemnation in your life, turn to Him and repent; because it’s His mercy that is showing you the reality of your life’s choices. The shaking will not let up until you turn to Him with your whole heart, soul, mind and strength, because of His great love for you.

“So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.” (Colossians 2:16-17 NKJV).

It’s ironic that Christian theologians have used Colossians 2:16-17 to justify mixing holy things with the unholy, because within this very chapter it spells out two critical components to dwelling in No Man’s Land. BTW – No Man’s Land is the place where people daily yield to His crucifixion process, which causes one’s Kingdom of Self to disappear so the Kingdom of God can appear within and without:

[1] In No Man’s Land, Crucified Ones will NOT allow themselves to be diverted, deceived, or beguiled from receiving their eternal rewards to the satisfaction of the flesh (Colossians 2:18, 23).

[2] In No Man’s Land, Crucified Ones rightly judge (open the Door of Life) to the Lord’s marks in time, so that Christ’s Body can connect to their mature Head, who is casting the shadow.

We need to look with fresh eyes at whether Colossians 2:16-17 gives Christians a plausible reason to no longer exclusively celebrate the Lord’s Feasts. We are told that the marks of time that the Lord Himself put in place to set His people’s years, months and weeks – festivals, new moons and sabbaths – are but a shadow of things to come and their substance are found in the Messiah. Yeshua is the substance; but we must comprehend that a shadow always resembles its substance. When Scripture says something is a shadow of things to come, it means that we will be answering to the Creator who is casting the shadow.

We don’t have to guess what Yeshua’s substance is. Scripture tells us that His Name is “The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13). The substance of the Lord’s celebrations is found in the Messiah, and it lines up with what’s articulated in His Word. “These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found IN CHRIST” (Colossians 2:17 NIV). Yeshua – the Head – and His Body are suppose to be the substance – the living breathing reality of His festivals, new moons and sabbaths.

Believers are not told to not celebrate the Lord’s Feasts in Colossians 2:16-17, but to not let anyone judge us in regard to them, which means people should not criticize, censure, condemn. or punish other people for the way they feel led to celebrate a Biblical Festival, a New Moon celebration, or a Sabbath because all of us are answering to the One casting the shadow. There is an assumption in the statement “Don’t let anyone judge you” that the Lord’s people are already eating, drinking and celebrating things His way. It’s similar to when God states in Matthew 6 “when you give to the needy,” “when you pray,” and “when you fast;” the Lord is assuming that His people are already giving, praying and fasting.

Colossians 2:6-12 speaks of how those who walk IN CHRIST dwell in the fullness of Christ bodily. The growth process for His Crucified Ones requires that we not only take up our cross daily, but we also follow the Messiah in all three of His baptisms (Matthew 3:11) , so we can rise with Him having put off the body of sins of the flesh.

Colossians chapter 2 repeated warns us in verses 8, 18, 20-23 that:

• God’s people can be spoilt “after the traditions of man, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:8 KJV). There is no other celebration that is more steeped in the traditions of man and the basic principles of the world than Christmas.

• God’s people can be beguiled through a voluntary submission to another gospel and the worshipping of angels (Colossians 2:18). To be beguiled is to be deceived or hoodwinked, especially by something that appears to be agreeable. It’s something that engages your interest by deceitful cunning, duplicity, and trickery. So you tell me: Are Christians supposed to be ignorant of the fact that Satanists know that Santa is an anagram for Satan, and some of their clubs even use a Santa with a cigar to mark their meeting places? Satan (aka Santa) is the personification of the fallen angel Lucifer (Revelation 12:9) whom even God’s people worship when we voluntarily submit to following the ways of the world and we worship Jesus according to what the world tells us to do to rather that His word.

• God’s people can be deceived by being vainly puffed up by their fleshly mind (Colossians 2:18). How many Christian minds are vainly puffed up by their fleshly mind thinking they know what’s better than what’s been spelled out in Scripture? It’s a question that demands a verdict in this hour, because God’s mercy is going to be showing each one of His people which side of the Christmas divide they are on. Your life will reveal whether you are IN CHRIST or not? If things are a shaking, please turn to Him.

• God’s people are supposed to be dead with Christ from the sensual requirements of the world and satisfaction of their flesh (Colossians 2:20-23). So why do we do submit to what the world tells us to do to celebrate Yeshua (Jesus)? Why do we put up those originally pagan Christmas trees, lights, etc? Why do we choose by our own will to worship after the traditions of man? Christmas feeds our senses and feels oh so good. “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic” (James 3:15 NKJV). Are we called to enter into the same Spirit of Christmas, but believe that the Christian version is better and sanitized, even though history can trace Christmas’s root to Babylon and 95-96% of the world participates in Christmas? God’s Word says, “No.”

Please be a Berean, and search this out yourself! Get out your Bible and get into your prayer closet. And if you need some assistance in evaluating Christmas according to History and His Word, my blog http://santatizing.wordpress.com/ is a result of over 15 years of research as I genuinely searched for His Truth after three epiphaneous appearances from Yeshua.

Colossians 2:23 says that the fleshly worship that we voluntarily choose to participate in neglects the Messiah’s Body, because these seemingly innocent things cause His people to NOT hold fast to the Head – Christ. They also cause His Body to NOT be joined and knitted together in love due to His people walking and sowing to their flesh rather than to Spirit of the Living God (Rom 8:1,4-5; Col 2:19,23; Eph 4:15-16).

I heard: “This is your year. All that I’ve placed within you will be made know this year. This is a year to hold fast to the Head — the Messiah (Christ).” Let it be so.

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.
