THE LAMB & HIS BRIDE IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S KINGDOM

Artist Unknown

What does it mean to be in the midst of God’s Kingdom?

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. “The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). “Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst” (John 19:18).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb on the throne who is the Great Shepherd of our souls. “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life” (Revelation 7:17).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the wife of the Lamb, His Bride. “Come, I shall show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb” (Revelation 21:9b).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Bride of the Messiah who is the Dwelling Place of God. His Bride is His Temple that is made up of living, breathing stones, which are being built up into a spiritual house (1 Peter 2:5). “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:1-3).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb and His Bride. “The marriage of the Lamb has come and His Bride has made herself ready. And it was given her to cloth herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen, is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:7-8).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is a Bride who is spoken of as the holy city called the New Jerusalem. “And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:2).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the New Jerusalem. “The New Jerusalem has great high walls with twelve angels guarding the gates. On each of the twelve gates is one of the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each on of the gates was a single pearl” (Revelation 21:22a).

So, in the midst of God’s Kingdom is a throne where there is a Righteous King and His Righteous Queen (i.e., the Bride of Christ) where they rule and reign “in Christ” through love. The Messiah’s Bride is His cozy and comfy Dwelling Place where the Messiah feels at home. She is one of His most highly valued possession. That the commitment to being married to the King of Kings is not to be taken lightly is almost an understatement. The Messiah’s True Queen of Heaven most excellently represent the King, because it is clearly seen and understood that She is gloriously one with Him through holy matrimony. They are ooooooooonnnnnnneeeeee…

May you press into the Kingdom of God in your midst! May you press into your Beautiful Beloved Author, Creator, Lord, Savior and Friend!

Give em heaven!!!

YOM TERUAH OR ROSH HA SHANA? BIBLE OR BABYLON?

Trumpet Glory

The trumps are blowing and the KING of Kings is crowned even more so in our lives. One day – perhaps today – the Messiah will return at the Last Trump! Let’s ride on the wind of the sound of His voice!

Did you know that Yom Teruah – the Feast of Trumpets – is in Scripture (Leviticus 23:23-35; Numbers 29: 4-13), but the Jewish New Years – Rosh Ha Shanah – celebrated in the seventh month is not? There is only one mention of Rosh Ha Shanah in Scripture. It is found in Ezekiel 40:1 when Ezekiel honored and spoke of God’S New Year… the first of Aviv. Please allow me to emphasize that last point: Scripture’s only mention of Rosh Ha Shanah corresponds to the only New Year that God set up in Scripture, the first of Aviv in March/April.

Not until 200 AD (170 years after our Messiah rose) did Rosh Ha Shanah come about to replace Yom Teruah in the Mishnah, which later got incorporated into the Talmud… and believe you me, you don’t want any part of the Talmud! There are some disgusting things in the Talmud, for instance it exonerates pedophilia against little girls over 3-yrs-old.

Having a New Year celebrated in the seventh month of the year comes from Babylon. Say what?! Aren’t you amazed to find out that celebrating a New Year for Years in the seventh month is a BABYLONIAN tradition?

The Babylonians used to have a lunar-solar calendar very similar to the Biblical calendar. The result was that Yom Teruah often fell out on the same day as the Babylonian New Years festival known as Akitu. Akitu fell out on the 1st day of Tishri, as well as six months later on the first of Nisan. That’s right! To make matters more confusing the Babylonians celebrated Akitu – New Years – twice a year. Talk about confusing! I see some Tower of Babel fingerprints here.

The 1st of Tishri coincided with Yom Teruah on the 1st day of the Seventh Month. The fact that the Jews had started calling the Seventh Month by the Babylonian name Tishri paved the way for turning Yom Teruah into a Jewish Akitu. At the same time the Rabbis did not want to adopt Akitu outright, so they Judaized it by changing the name of Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting or Day of Trumpets) to Rosh Hashanah (New Years).

WHAT REMAINS?

So what remains if one desires to return to the solid age-old foundations of the Word of God?

Both Rabbinical Judaism and Constantine Christianity have traditions of man that are keeping us from fulfilling the Word of God. We need to determine His righteous measuring line in all things, in this case — celebrating His Feasts — the Feasts of the Lord. Not legalistically, but in a life-giving sense. Just know that any canonized form of the Bible has its limitations and its personal agendas.

That’s why we need to stick with the first five books of the Bible for the foundations of our faith, i.e. believing Moses. Yeshua actually tells His people this very thing: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV).

OFFERING BY FIRE

Let all Bridal Lovers of God try to lay down our agendas and traditions on God’s Altar, so we can each make that “offering by fire to the LORD” that Leviticus 23:25 prescribes. Let the All-Consuming Fire’s measuring line of His Word burn up all traditions of men that keep us in Babylon and from keeping the commandments of God that those who love Him will fulfill (Mark 7:7-9,13; John 14:15; 15:10; 1 John 5:2; 2 John 1:6; Revelation 14:12; 18:4).

RETURN OF OUR MESSIAH

What remains in the celebration of Yom Teruah is that what is Scriptural. Yom Teruah — the sounding of the shofar and lifting up of voices to God as ONE — celebrates the day of the return of our Messiah.

The friend who pointed out to me that Rosh Ha Shana was not Scriptural put it this way: “Imagine the ‘sky rolling up like a scroll’ and our Messiah coming for His Bride. Are you ready?”

There are several mentions of the “Last Trump” or “Great Trump” in Scripture, and it’s very prophetic! Matthew 24:30-31, 1 Corinthians 15:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: Etc.

CORONATION DAY

What Scripturally remains is that the first day of the seventh month is the coronation day of the kings.

Psalm 47 is a coronation psalm. Check it out!

[1] Psalm 47:5 is the shout and trumpet of Yom Teruah that declares that  God has set His King upon His holy hill of Zion, and a royal rod of authority is placed in the King’s hands to rule righteously in all matters (Psalms 2:6-7; Genesis 49:10; Psalms 45:6; Isaiah 11:1,4; Zechariah 9:9; John 1:47-49; Revelation 2:27).

[2] Psalm 47:6 is the shouting of praise of the king. During the acclamation, all the people shout, “Long live the king!” (1 Kings 1:28-31).

[3] Psalm 47:8 is the ceremony of the throne where the king sits on the throne and is anointed as such (2 Samuel 5:3-4; 1 Kings 1:39-40; 2 Kings 9:1-6).

[4] Psalm 47:9 shows the believers in the Messiah gathering in His presence. Each of the King’s subjects come to visit the king after He has taken the throne. By doing this, they acknowledge their allegiance to Him and receive a commissioning from Him for their job in His Kingdom (Isaiah 66:22-23; Zechariah 14:16-17; Matthew 2:2).

SHIFT

So what caused this shift from Rosh Hashana to Yom Teruah last year for me?

It began with the following post from Rebekkah Avraham when I put out a call for people to seek the Lord for a word for the Biblical Year 5774 (i.e., September 16, 2012) to share with others: “The Scriptural New Year starts on the 1st of Abib… in March/April. There is but one New Year in the Torah of the Most High. There are four in Jewish Tradition. The traditions of men that make the word of God of none effect. God bless you all. Shalom Aleichem.”

Turns out that she is right.

Rosh Ha Shanah is said to celebrate the beginning of the Civil New Year by its proponents — a New Year for Years. Heck, I’ve even touted that, because I thought it was something Biblical; but in reality, God calls the first day of the seventh month the Day of Blasts/Sounding, which corresponds to Yom Teruah. It is Rabbinic Judaism that calls it Rosh Ha Shanah (Head of the Year).

TO MARRY THE KING OF KINGS

Why this is important is that one of the foundational concepts about celebrating Biblical Feasts is that at His Feasts God is calling His people together at a particular time at a particular place to become betrothed (i.e., married to the King of Kings). No wonder there is so much confusion over feasts. It’s literally a battle over and for His Bride. Won’t you celebrate Him His way and join Him in holy matrimony?
